Steven Spielberg Endorses Hillary
Hillary Hub via Drudge ^

Posted on 06/13/2007 7:23:25 AM PDT by HarmlessLovableFuzzball

Influential filmmaker and philanthropist Steven Spielberg today announced that he is officially endorsing Hillary Clinton for President. Spielberg said that he has chosen to endorse Clinton because of her experience and strength.

“I’ve taken the time to familiarize myself with the impressive field of Democratic candidates and am convinced that Hillary Clinton is the most qualified candidate to lead us from her first day in the White House,” Spielberg said. “Hillary is a strong leader and is respected the world over. As president, she will bring America back together, rebuild our prestige abroad and ensure our protection here at home.”

In addition to his innumerable cinematic achievements, Spielberg has devoted his time and resources to many philanthropic causes. The impact of his experience making Schindler’s List,” led him to establish the Righteous Persons Foundation using all his profits from the film. He also founded Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, which has recorded more than 52,000 Holocaust survivor testimonies. Spielberg executive produced “The Last Days,” the Shoah Foundation’s third documentary, which won the Academy Award® in 1999 for Best Documentary Feature. In 2005, the Foundation’s repository of testimonies was transferred to the University of Southern California. The new USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education is dedicated to research and scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. In addition, Spielberg is the chairman emeritus of the Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation, which combines the efforts of pediatric health care, technology and entertainment to empower seriously ill children.

Spielberg is a principal partner of DreamWorks Studios, responsible for some of the most honored films in recent years, including three consecutive Best Picture Academy Award® winners: “American Beauty,” “Gladiator,” and “A Beautiful Mind” (the latter two co-productions with Universal). One of the industry’s most successful and influential filmmakers, Spielberg has directed, produced, or executive produced some of the top-grossing films of all time, including “Jurassic Park” and “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.” Among his myriad honors, he is a three-time Academy Award® winner, earning two Oscars® for Best Director and Best Picture for “Schindler’s List,” and a third Oscar® for Best Director for “Saving Private Ryan.”

That he’s a liberal is no surprise, but who would have thought that Spielberg would become an enabler of the Nazis of our days...

What a big freakin’ surprise! The Clintons and Hollywood have a love affair that will never die because they each support the others’ rotten lifestyles.

Steven Spielberg says a left-wing anti-American Democrat will lead us back together - One of the biggest lies I have heard in some time. But then it maybe that he means the anti-American pro terrorist in Hollywood.

Spielberg is expected to do for hillary hips what he did for the guns in the re-release of Close Encounters.

I've always heard that Hollyweird has the best drugs in the world. This is total verification.

I wonder many phone calls William Jefferson Blythe III had to make for this endorsement...while David Geffen was trying to persuade Spielberg the other way .

Now, if there was any doubt, whatsoever, that Senator Clinton is a real, honest-to-God liberal, this act dispels that doubt.

Hollywood. Geez, what a collection of meatheads.

” ensure our protection here at home.”... “

Yeah right, I would feel so much more secure from the Islamofascists with the leftist/commie/socialist PIAPS in charge.

I haven’t liked Spielberg in a very long time. Five minutes into E.T., I was gagging from the treacle and saccharine. Nothing is too corny, sentimental, contrived, pretentious and affected for Spielberg.

Another political dim bulb celebrity. You would think being Jewish he would have enough sense or at least a desire of self-preservation to comprehend the threat of Islamofascism.

I guess it will take a Islamic nuke in LA to wake this idiot up. It will a little too late then.

Isn't historical knowledge of the Holocaust enough of a reminder to some Jews to make them aware of the danger of Islam, sworn to wipe Israel and the Jews off the face of the earth.

I don’t get it. I just don’t get cultural suicide.

“she will bring America back together” Presumably he means America is “apart” because of the war. Thus she will bring home the troops. Yay, we are back together. Then the terrorists will get back together, Iraq will become a hellhole of Jihidi influence, spreading evetually back to us.

Phew, now that Spielberg has weighed in, I guess that I can make MY OWN decision.

The arrogance of these Hollywood types never ceases to amaze me. Last time I checked, his opinion and his vote count exactly the same as mine. Perhaps I should send out a press release declaring my support for Fred Thompson.

Spielberg should stick to making movies and STFU.

If memory serves...it was in ET. HE turned the agent’s guns into cell phones, or something harmless like that, in the re-release.

Ya gotta love it - you’d think this Hollyfruit jackasses would have learned by now. We don’t give a #$%^ WHAT they think!!

But no, anything to make themselves think they have relevance. Shut up, Speilberg. Shut up, Geffen. Shut UP, Babs. America ISN’T listening.

“impressive field of Democratic candidates”

After that intro statement it is clear he is delusional and nothing that followed should be given any credence.

When I read the comment about how Steven thinks Hillary will unite the country, it made me think about how unlikeable and how mean Hillary is. Hillary has to be one of the meanest sharp tongued women in politics today, she definitely is not a Christian. As a matter of a fact, I am under the distinct impression, that if one is a Christian, then they are on Hillary's long list of people she can't stand. I don"t think Steven Spielberg is a stupid man, but this proves that he has an agenda by lying through his teeth, because surely, he doesn’t believe a word of what he said.

In my response just before this one, I mentioned that I don’t think Steven believes a word he said about her uniting the country, and you mentioned the Nazis. One thing I notice about those who have followed people like Jim Jones and Hitler, is that those closest to them know that they LIE, yet always justify it. I know that Hillary is a sociopath by the way her supporters will lie for her, it’s scary, plus look at Hillary’s eyes, anyone who knows anything knows that they are the eyes of a typical sociopath, Hitler had the same look.

It’s fascinating how some people only see what they want to, it must be hell dealing with Steven on a daily basis, I’m sure for all of his “insight” he must be really “fair” on his everyday judgement calls, I wouldn’t want to work with him and I feel sorry for the normal nice people who have to.
