George Clooney writes at The Huffington Post that he's proud to be a liberal, gosh darn it! You know why? Because he's such a brave, brave man and, these days, you have to be brave to proclaim yourself a liberal because us mean old conservatives are trying to suppress freedom of speech. George whines:
Too many people run away from the label. They whisper it like you'd whisper "I'm a Nazi." Like it's dirty word. But turn away from saying "I'm a liberal" and it's like you're turning away from saying that blacks should be allowed to sit in the front of the bus, that women should be able to vote and get paid the same as a man, that McCarthy was wrong, that Vietnam was a mistake. And that Saddam Hussein had no ties to al-Qaeda and had nothing to do with 9/11. ...
Bottom line: it's not merely our right to question our government, it's our duty. Whatever the consequences. We can't demand freedom of speech then turn around and say, But please don't say bad things about us. You gotta be a grown up and take your hits.
Poor suffering George. He gets television air time, newspaper time, time at the Oscar ceremony, and time at any number of blogs to whine about how oppressed he is.
In a related post from La Shawn Barber, she notes that Congressional Republicans are supporting free speech for bloggers while Democrats want to regulate the political free speech of bloggers over the internet. Go figure. Who's really for free speech and who isn't?
Hey, George -- if you really want to know what oppression is, move to Saudi Arabia or China and try to start a Bible study.

Sorry George... take a history lesson. It was the conservatives that voted for the Civil Rights Bill. Lots of liberal dems voted against it.
Go back to school, George.
Who's George Clooney?
You mean he's NOT ashamed?
He is such a brave chap.
But then my dog is proud to be an Irish Setter, but I don't listen to him on politics, and refuse to watch him on videos or movies, just like I do with George Clooney.
George needs to be put on a leash, walked around the park several times, so he can at least have a good BM. The shite is coming out his mouth!
Failing that he needs to be mated with a male socialist wing nut, sex starved Irish Wolfhound so he understands what Broke Back Mountain IS really about!
Well, ain't that grand?
Another useless POS that thinks he has a viable message simply because he appears in movies and TV shows.
These damn "celebrities" never cease to amaze me with their egos and their over-inflated sense of importance to every one.
The man is an idiot.
Shut the hell up and just act, Clooney.
I don't give a rat's ass about your political feelings or leanings.
I've never figured out how a Hollywood liberal can sleep at night knowing that he/she is worth more than 92.2% of Americans when there are so,so many victims in the world.
Why don't you do like liberals and hold up your sign?
**Sorry George... take a history lesson. It was the conservatives that voted for the Civil Rights Bill. Lots of liberal dems voted against it.**
The liberal dems at UMass just decided to stop racially segregating student housing. Clooney needs to buy a clue.
Clooney; proud to be a moron.
