MSNBC reported on Instagram that “President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was smashed into pieces this morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he carried in a guitar case. This is at least the second time President Trump’s star has been vandalized in the last two years.”
The star vandalizing is symptomatic of Hollywood’s deep liberal leanings, and it is unlikely that the mainstream media will scour the earth to hold the vandals accountable and condemn their crimes.
As I wrote in a CNN op-ed, “Neil Gross, professor of sociology at Colby College, analyzes why Hollywood tilts so far left and reports ‘Where conservatives empathize foremost with family members and country, liberals extend the bounds of empathy to include friends, the socially disadvantaged and citizens of the world, to whom they’d like government to lend a hand.’
“If that’s the case, though, it testifies to the remarkable human capacity for hypocrisy that, until now, the bounds of empathy among liberal men in Hollywood have not stretched to include female actors subject to sexual and economic exploitation,” Gross wrote.
The few Hollywood figures that align themselves with Trump or conservatives face considerable isolation and immediate repercussions for offensive statements even as Hollywood liberals receive laurels and new contracts.
As I said in a CNN conversation with Don Lemon, I agreed with prior guest Cornel West when he told Anderson Cooper that with Roseanne Barr we can love the sinner but hate the sin (e.g. her racist Twitter comments), a concept so commonly spoken yet so rarely lived.
What the mainstream media and Hollywood liberals who hate conservatives, like the alleged star vandals, don’t understand is that the more they demonize rather than respectfully debate substantive issues the more they push Trump supporters further into his arms.
