Skip to comments.No forgiving Charlton Heston
Posted on 04/19/2008 8:27:38 AM PDT by Perseverando
My grandfather was a college football star who even played for the NFL champs back in 1928, so I was looking forward to seeing George Clooneys new 1920s football movie, Leatherheads, this weekend. Thats before I found out how Clooney, like many lefties in Hollywood and the news media, had treated the late Charlton Heston.
Clooneys offense took place a few years back. According to Life Site News, For his conservative stands, however, Heston was attacked and reviled by his Hollywood colleagues. In 2003 actor and leftist political activist George Clooney joked about Hestons illness [Alzheimers disease], and, after Heston criticized him for the remark, he retorted, 'I dont care. Charlton Heston is the head of the National Rifle Association. He deserves whatever anyone says about him.'

but it makes me feel better to know that I don't give howood money...
My list of movies that I’m willing to pay hard cash money for is getting longer and longer. I’m just not willing to give these left-wingers out there any of my money and frankly, they aren’t good at what they like to call “acting.” Goes for renting their movies too. And it also goes for cartoons that use them for voices. Whoopi Goldberg is at top of that list.
One of these days — maybe — Hollywood will realize that they’ve shot themselves in the foot when the revenue stream continues in its freefall.
George Clooney isn’t alone — I read somewhere yesterday that Tom Cruise and John Travolta now think that are part of a “new race.”
For sure they have a right to their own opinions. And I have a right to voice my opinion of them and their political points of view by staying away from their movies.
thought I proofread the post better.
Should read “list of movies that I’m NOT willing to pay for ...
I would question Heston’s diagnosis if he was sharp enough to provide such a perfect answer to George Clooney. It’s difficult to get my wife to go along, but whenever I see George Clooney or his ilk on TV, I leave the room and sign on to Free Republic. Or turn up Limbaugh, Hannity, Savage, Levin, Medved, or Prager really loud to drown him out.
Get yourself a DVD recorder (one-time investment), a stack of blank DVDs, and tune in to TCM and Fox Movie Channel. You will quickly build a library of great movies, from back when actors actually knew how to act.
clooney is a weenie.
OK, I think that we may have to try it. I am always getting mailers from them but have never used them.
Good idea. That is my daughter’s favorite channel. I always walk in and she is watching some Audrey Hepburn movie on it.
Our church also has a library of classics but we have rented just about every one that they have.
What makes more mad is that use losers like that and the Eddie Murphy’s of the world to voice over their cartoons. I just not have my kids searching for their previous works before they became “Rated G”.
Pray tell from where? Wouldn’t I be a pirate then, matey? I guess I let my kids use Limewire to download their music (amazingly mostly 80’s stuff) so I am already walking the plank.
Before I hear from the copyright people.... if your taxes pay for the public library, and you're making a copy for your use only, I think that would fall under Fair Use.
I picture Heston and John Wayne fishing somewhere. Two of America’s finest.
I was going to call Clooney an asshome, but then I decided that wasn’t nice. Why should I insult all the asshomes out there by comparing them to Clooney. Apologies to all the assholes out there.
Clooney and these people on the left just don't get it. Their bitterness blinds them in so many ways.
I wonder if Barry Hussein Obama considers these libs bitter?
Oh you know that Clooney guy. He was in that one about the giant killer tomatoes. No, not the GOOD one.
