Skip to comments."Self Congratulatory" Clooney Slammed

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."
Pat Dollard has some 'must see' videos on his website

Cloooooney.....preparing to crash and burn his career.
never liked this clooney....but his Aunt had a lot of class....
I think of him and I think of Up, Up and Away in My Beautiful Balloon.
Air For Head Cloooooney..........
George Clooney smug alert!
lol, I have had no respect for clooney for a very long time.
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.
THis is some Great stuff... For the folk who can take it..
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.
Perfect definition. Thank you.
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?
Check out the post at #12, too.
Probably written by Kathy Najimy or Kathy Griffin; the poster just changed the y to an i to try to remain incognito. :)
...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.
No matter what his politics are.
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.
