Susan Sarandon: Dumb Woman Talking
Written by 

Susan SarandonThe hyperbole from the left is getting more extreme with each passing day. Several weeks ago actor Morgan Freeman claimed the Tea Party movement was “racist.” Last Friday, actor Sean Penn called the Tea Party the group that wanted to “get the N-word out of the White House” and “lynch” the President. These foolish actors have not seen or must not understand the latest polls which show African American Herman Cain as the Tea Party’s favorite candidate.

 While their remarks were both offensive and inaccurate, they were mild compared to what aging actress Susan Sarandon said last weekend at the Hamptons Film Festival.  In discussing her Academy Award winning role in the film “Dead Man Walking,” Sarandon said that she sent a copy of the book that inspired the movie to the Pope. However, she noted that the book was sent to “the last one, not this Nazi we have now.” To make matters worse, Sarandon repeated the offensive reference at another panel discussion.

This horrible remark was not only an insult to the leader of the Catholic Church, but also to the 1.2 billion Catholics worldwide. Sadly, among the left in this country, insulting conservatives and Catholics has become routine.

A great number of outspoken liberals can be found in the film industry, where good looking, but dim witted, entertainers earn a living. For some reason, these actors and actresses believe that the public cares about their political opinions. Instead, most people want them to “shut up” and perform. When they open their mouth, it is usually leftist drivel that exposes their ignorance and bias.

Sarandon is a hard core liberal who supports radical movements. It was no surprise to see her at the “Occupy Wall Street” rally giving aid and comfort to the protesters. Like so many other Hollywood extremists, she wouldn’t be caught dead at a Tea Party rally. These liberal stars prefer a group that bashes capitalism, yells “F… the USA” and defecates on police cars to a bunch of people waving the American Flag and singing patriotic hymns.

It is more than disquieting that Sarandon was not confronted about labeling the Pope a Nazi by anyone at the Hamptons Film Festival. Instead she was praised for her efforts to support UNICEF and the Wall Street protesters. This shows that there is plenty of anti-Catholic bias in the Hollywood community.

While festival attendees were not moved by Sarandon’s vicious attack against the Pope, her comments were condemned by William Donohue of the Catholic League of America. He noted that the Pope “was conscripted at the age of 14 into the Hitler Youth, along with every other young German boy.” However, the future Pope refused to go to meetings and “unlike most of the others, he deserted at the first opportunity.”

Clearly, the Pope represents the polar opposite of Nazism. In fact, film critic Michael Medved said Sarandon’s comments were especially egregious because of the Pope’s “moving and eloquent efforts to come to terms with the horrors of the Holocaust.” The Anti-Defamation League called on Sarandon to apologize to the Catholic community. Not surprisingly, calls to her agent were not returned.

It is time that these vicious attacks from the Hollywood left were no longer tolerated. Obviously, no one in Hollywood is going to penalize Susan Sarandon, but the American public should. Catholics and all Americans who are sick and tired of the hatred and ignorance spewed by the liberals in Hollywood should boycott Sarandon’s movies and force her to suffer some consequences for insulting a beloved church figure, who Catholics recognize as the successor to Saint Peter, the Apostle.

A boycott will send a message to the film studios that Sarandon and her fellow liberal stars are becoming a liability and maybe give more conservatives in Hollywood the courage to fight back against this type of intolerance.

These stars get paid big money to act, not comment on religion or politics. As we can see from Susan Sarandon and her liberal friends, when the stars stray from their make believe world of Hollywood into the real world, it is not a pretty site to behold. It’s time for Sarandon and company to either “shut up” or go away.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
