"Self Congratulatory" Clooney Slammed
IMDB.com ^ | 27 June 2006

Posted on 06/27/2006 5:39:51 AM PDT by paudio

Hollywood agent-turned-documentary maker Pat Dollard has attacked George Clooney's outspoken anti-war stance. Dollard - the former agent of regular Clooney colleague Steven Soderbergh - is currently making a pro-war documentary about Marines fighting in Iraq. He was furious when Clooney urged more Democrats to speak out against the war and 'congratulated' himself for doing so. He tells PageSix.com, "I read something on the Internet in which someone was patting himself on the back for having the courage to oppose the war. They actually equate bravery with speaking out against the president because (losing fans) might cost them one less servant at their Italian villa ... It put me into a black rage and made me sick to my stomach." Dollard, a republican, also attacked the way supporters of the party in the entertainment industry have been ostracized, adding, "Being a Republican in Hollywood today is not much different than being a communist in Hollywood in the 1950s. I'm not trying to overstate the case, but the reality is there is a blacklist in Hollywood. It's very McCarthy-like. It just shows the hypocrisy of the left."

Check out this comment left by someone named Kathi:

Name: Kathi

Killing people should not be glorified! How about you go down there and get your head shot of by people who have nothing left to lose? How could you have possibly elected such a moron as president, the whole world is laughing in your face. Never has a president be the target of so much jokes and antistatements. So just for once try to use your brain and not do everything that your country tells you to do.

"but his Aunt had a lot of class...."

Rosemary was a classy lady and a true partiot.

George Clooney?
A weasel of the first order, and a coward to boot.
And he looks French.
The sucker actually thinks attacking President Bush shows he has "courage".
That is really laughable.
His hate-America movie "Syriana" was one of the most revoltingly anti-Amercan pieces of garbage I have seen in my life, and shows how the coward is totally scared about taking Islamofacist scum to task for their murderous , vile acts.
Let Clooney the weasel make a movie against the Islamo-facist vermin, then we can even begin to talk about courage.

Hmmmm....looks like somebody needs some vocabulary lessons.

"Courage" is NOT sitting by your pool, drinking good Scotch and attacking the men and women who are defending you from terrorist attack, and fighting to liberate a country from a vicious dictator.

"Courage" is BEING one of those defenders.

I have always refered to this "actor" by his REAL name, George C. Looney. And in this case, the name suits him to a T. Another example of why Hollywood types and singers should keep their mouths shut about politics. First, you'll always piss someone off who then won't spend a dime on anything you're selling, and second (and in Looney's case, most importantly) if you're an idiot moonbat without a clue, why let everyone know?

For some strange reason, I woke up this morning thinking about this family....

...6 degrees separation to the right or left, you've got Rosemary Clooney....whose brother (Nick) is liberal George Clooney's father...

..then you have Jose Ferrer who married Rosemary Clooney and fathered 5 children with her...

..then you have Gabriel Ferrer, one of their 5 children, who married Debbie Boone, Christian/Conservative Pat Boone's daughter...

Bet there were some interesting Christmas dinners at those houses.

As long as Clooney looks attractive to a large enough number of women, he will be a big boxoffice star.

No matter what his politics are.

"As long as Clooney looks attractive to a large enough number of women, he will be a big boxoffice star."

I've never understood the whole clooney swoon thing. To me he's that goofy looking, bad actor from Facts of Life. I am proud to say the only money I've spent on a clooney movie was buying one of those Ocean's movies for my ultra liberal brother in law. I didn't like my money going to clooney, but it's hard to find a gift good enough for bro in law.

I bet when Clooney is making love, he has the woman hold up a mirror so he can look at himself while in the act.

I love how liberals think they're more intelligent than others. I have yet to lose an argument with one.....trouble is that their conceit won't let them see that fact.

Don't underestimate what a tremendous sacrifice this is.

"McCarthy" was right about there being Communists in Hollywood pushing their agenda through meetings and their films. Communists in America may largely have been useful idiots unaware of the millions that Uncle Joe Stalin was murdering but they were still commie sympathizers.

Whom do the Republicans in Hollywood aid who is evil? What agenda are they pushing forth in their films?

There has been a standing blacklist in Hollywood. It is the essence of political correctness.

Dear Kathi:

After reading your post, I gather that you are either a foreigner or career gal from MA/NY/CT. The concentration of Leftie Feminist Idiot Thinking seems to be particularly concentrated in these areas, so it is a reasonable assumption.

I am in absolute agreement with your statement, "Killing people should not be glorified!". Of course you are referring to the massacre of 3,000 American citizens on a beautiful September morning in 2001. Of course you are, because you saw the Arab Muslims dancing in the streets and celebrating with gunfire on the 24/7 news media that was so shocked by the carnage that they actually reported the truth for a few days. Many of us saved those truths and use them regularly to beat back the likes of George Clooney and Michael Moore.

Kathi, if you are living outside the U.S., please please please stop looking through the peephole of CNN/BBC news.
They put on their daily puppet show for people just like you, people who really ought to know better. Is America the Great Satan? We Americans wish we could get back the gazillions we've spent around the world promoting freedom and liberty. The American people now realize that most of the rest of the world are nothing but a bunch of blood sucking parasites, who need to blame the U.S. for their lazy socialist failed countries. Kathi, we sincerely hope that you and the others just like you STFU and go buy a burqqa.
It won't be long now for you, since your appeasement and cowardice have given the Muslim terrorists all the encouragement they need. Just think of it...Kathi, the enlightened, liberated, opinionated burqqa wearing dhimmi.
If you keep your mouth shut, they may let you live.

Anyway, Kathi, I must now close. I am house hunting and it is a grueling process. Which lovely, peaceful community do I want to live in? How much should I invest comfortably and still maintain my snowbird residence? Which community has a gun and rod club that Mr.X will enjoy? Yes, dear, we are gun owning, taxpaying, meat-eating, God fearing, MYOB American types. Our elder son is a United States Marine and has served two tours in Iraq. Our fathers both served in WWII when, as ever, you and your people were going straight to hell, post haste. We cleaned up that mess, and rebuilt Europe and Asia. We've put up with the likes of you for far too long now. Just wait. See if the American people will help the mewling cowards of Europe ever again. Forget the polls and believe this...Most Americans can't stand you or your countrymen. Don't come crying, we're fresh out of sympathy.

Your penpal,
ishabibble
