Ben Affleck: I can't watch 'big Republican' actors
World Net Daily ^ | 1/30/2014 | Larry Elder

Posted on 01/30/2014 6:14:38 AM PST by rktman

Democratic fundraiser/actor Ben Affleck – and the next big-screen “Batman” – recently gave an interview to Playboy. His own bias against Republicans, he admits, prevents him from fully enjoying a Republican actor’s performance. “It’s … hard,” said Affleck, “to get people to suspend disbelief.”

Affleck said: “When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That (bleep) fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion.”

Larry's take on benny aflake. Funny. I can't watch dumbass sycophant actors who suck up to commies/socialists. But ya gotta love the party of tolerance for their compassion(?). Maybe there should be a war on actors like conservatives have going against women. All in favor. (I know a lot of FReepers don't do movies any more.)

No kidding. He’s no great actor and obviously not very bright. And I feel the same way about watching libtard actors, benny.

Isn’t Affleck the guy who has ruined pretty much EVERY film he’s been in?

Including Dogma?

I think that is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard an actor say. No more Affleck movies for me. Not that I ever watched them anyway since he srarted trying to do comedy.which he completely sucks at.

Well, now this idiot knows how half the country feels watching his garbage.

Only thing is... he has a select few republicans that he has to watch. We have closer to 90% of the movies and shows that we have to separate the actor from the charactor.

Ben is a liberal idiot. A pure bonafide Hollywood Liberal Idiot.

It’s impossible to ruin Dogma. It was nothing but a pile of pro-abortion sacrilegious filth from the get-go. Sadly filmed almost in its entirety here in Pittsburgh.

Never cared much for him as an actor anyway, but I am glad he revealed himself as a commie, so I can now avoid his movies like the plague along with Janeane Garofalo

The new normal in th US is that you must to follow the single party (Marxist) rulers without exception, and its even Hollywood Cool to do so.

The idea that America was created on the basic premise of the desire to have disgreement with the Crown over religion appears to be irrelevant to these ignorant thugs in training.

It all works out. I can’t suspend my disbelief when libtard actors like Clowny, Aflack and Damion play heroes. Just doesn’t work. Something about hating your country and democracy makes it antithetical.

Nor can I watch bad actors. Ben is a two-for. No way will I pay money to see movies with ass clowns like him. I did watch his Pear Harbor movie because of the special effects thought (on TV). The only thing that surprised me was that he didn’t fly his plane to Japan and defect to the enemy.

He has little talent, how did he get a job anyway?

I would like Ben to know this fact, if things went down in big & bad way, SHTF, Ben's sole purpose at that point would be to provide food. Ask yourself Ben, what value would you have in a deconstructed modern society? You would have value as a source of protein.

Hollywood does such a powerful job of promotion “Big Republican Actors”, Be, you would thing there would be a special category of Oscar for them.

After all, is is so very difficult to find a movie these days where the entire cast does NOT consist of “Big Republican Actors”!

I suppose, Ben, that you are forced to avoid movies altogether and just sit home and look at pictures of yourself.... and stare at the blank spot on the wall where Jennifer Anniston’s photo used to be.

Okay, Ben...I can count all the BIG REPUB actors on one hand as well as any conservative movies. YOU on the other hand and your fellow actors are ALL BIG LIBS hiding in your castles and counting your money that you hold dear.

Let’s follow the dictate of Marxism and everyone in this country will get a salary of $25,000/yr and they’ll have to eat ramen noodles in a cold water flat.
Including YOU, Mr Affleck. How do you like communism now?

“So Batman comes off the interesting list.”

Not a big fan of this genre (except for Robert Downey, Jr. in Ironman - what a hottie!), but from what I’ve read elsewhere any hope for this upcoming flick disappeared with the announcement that Affleck got the part.

Ben is an 8 or 9 on the liberal idiot scale of evil. Sean Penn is a 10.
They both have one thing in common. They are actors I don ‘t care to watch. I’d say boycott their a$€ but no one watches them much anyway.

I guess Stalin got his wish. The Communists DID takeover Hollywood.

When it comes to blacklisting, Joe McCarthy was a piker compared to the Leftists who run Hollywood, and the rest of the media, today.

That’s OK. I don’t like to see actors who are felons, like Ben Afflecked, run around with guns on the screen either.

I understand that Afleck did an *outstanding* job portraying Harvey Milk in that feature film.One pervert film reviewer said that his performance transported you to the bathhouses of the Castro district and that the scene where he met that cute young thing (played by Matt Damon) and invited him back to his fabulously decorated apartment.....

Share the wealth benny. Share the wealth. No? How about you let some “trespassers” move in with you since it’s their “right” to take what they want and violate the law without fear of prosecution. Just leave the gate and front door unlocked. You’ll love the smell of refritos in the morning.

I feel the same way about watching the 99% who are liberal democrats. Hollywood's made a point of telling me and other traditional Americans that they don't like us.

We get their message.

We don't watch them, buy their music or read their newspapers. Must be nice to be so rich you can give the finger to half your potential customers.

"The guy that screwed up the Daredevil movie."

Everything else in that movie was great. I was apprehensive about Michael Clarke Duncan playing the Kingpin, but he nailed it perfectly.

I only hope Marvel reboots it into another movie.
