'I've had my phone tapped': Susan Sarandon claims 'government is watching her'
Daily Mail ^ | April 23, 2012 | Lydia Warren

Posted on 04/23/2012 12:43:10 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Actress and left-wing activist Susan Sarandon has claimed she was recently denied security clearance for a visit to the White House - and that the government has been tapping her phone.

The Oscar winner, who has vehemently condemned the war in Iraq, made the claims on Sunday during a Q&A session at the Tribeca Film Festival - an 11-day event in New York's Lower Manhattan.

One audience member asked whether Sarandon, who was answering questions alongside documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, believed she was under surveillance by the government.

'We know we're under surveillance,' Sarandon said: 'I’ve had my phone tapped.'

She added: 'I was denied a security clearance to go to the White House and I don’t know why.' She asked the audience member jokingly: 'Do you know why?'

Sarandon said she knew she was being watched by the government as she had twice seen a file held on her through Freedom of Information requests, the Daily Beast reported.

Moore, who directed Fahrenheit 9/11 and Capitalism: A Love Story, said he would not be surprised if 'somebody, somewhere' has subjected him to surveillance. 'As it should be,' he laughed.

What a pair of idiots. Why would left-wing, America-hating anti-capitalist Obama have Michae; “Jabba the Hut” Moore under surveillace? To hear all of Jabba’s left-wing, America-hating anti-capitalist conversations? Same with washed up old hag Sarandon. These are Hussein Obama’s core constituents!

It was probably tapped by the Secret Service, but for completely different reasons then she’s thinking it was.

With Moore's girth, it's impossible to miss him from five miles out.

Hey, can you imagine a WORSE assignment than having to watch Michael Moore at him home all day? that is given to agents that were once caught with hookers.

Exactly.

Welcome to Commieland, babe. Under that system, it can be more dangerous to be one of the movement’s “friends” than one of its enemies. Just ask the ghosts of Leon Trotsky and Che Guavera.

It could also be drug use. Many drugs cause that kind of paranoia. But just because she's paranoid doesn't mean she's wrong.

Sarandon and her then-husband, actor Tim Robbins, campaigned for John Edwards in New Hampshire,

They were never married. Where do I sign up for a job as a fact checker?

Another irrelevant has-been actor desperately seeking attention from the Hollywood moguls. They are in hopes they will be noticed and rewarded with a script by showing their public hatred of America. Let’s see if the ugly bitch gets anything in the next six months.

Moore says “As it should be.” He is willing to be “watched” so all of us right wingers can be watched. What he’s too fat to understand is when a true right wing dictator gets in his fat ass is grass.

There's a picture at the link on Drudge of Moore and Sarandon.

I'm trying to make up my mind whether he looks like "Chet" creature in Weird Science, or Jabba the Hutt from Star Wars.

Of course they are watching her and lardo Moore.

I hate to point out the obvious, but this is the government she supported. This is the President these Hollywood nut jobs asked, (no, begged) for. So I guess this proves the old adage: “be careful what you wish for”.
