New York Times bestselling author of Obama Zombies and gonzo journalist Jason Mattera takes the first stand with Hollywood Hypocrites, as he slays the Lefts sacred celebrity cows and teaches Obamas Tinseltown foot soldiers their most important lesson yet: No longer can they attempt to deny Americans the very liberties they use to catapult themselves to prosperity and stardom. In his trademark eye-opening, no-holds-barred, and hilarious style, Mattera puts scores of A-list celebrities, including Sting, Madonna, Bono, Al Gore, Alec Baldwin, Matt Damon, Cameron Diaz, Bruce Springsteen, and many, many more under the microscope to analyze whether they live by the same environmental, health, anti-violence, civil rights, and other policy prescriptions they seek to inflict on Americans. What he uncovers will shock you.
"Paul McCartney had his new Lexis 600h flown into England from Japan instead of transported by ship, which had the environmental impact of driving the car 300 times around the globe.
Barbara Streisand harps about a "Global Warming Emergency" as she spends $22,000 a year watering her lawn and gardens.
Robert Redford, whom Time magazine called an environmental "superhero" cited environmental concerns when recently lobbying against a home development near his Napa Valley estate. Yet at the same time he was pocketing millions by selling luxury home lots to developers in pristine wilderness area near his Sundance, Utah resort.
Harrison Ford is the chairman of a global conservation group, yet owns 7 airplanes and has stated, "I often fly up the coast for a cheeseburger."
In 2008, Michael Moore assaulted Hollywood for taking subsidies from poor states to attract in-state filming stating, "Why do they [large corporate movie studios] need our money from Michigan, from our taxpayers?" Then, in 2010, Moore took over $1 million from Michigan for the privilege filming some of, Capitalism: A Love Story in the State. The movie grossed Moore over $17 million.
Bruce Springsteen has publicly opposed tax cuts for the rich saying that they would increase "the division of wealth that threatens to destroy our social contract..." However, when it comes to paying taxes himself, he claims the acreage next his sprawling New Jersey estate is a farm in order to avoid hundreds of thousands of dollars in property tax.
Jon Bon Jovi, another self-acclaimed defender of the downtrodden, raises bees to fit into the same tax loophole in New Jersey, a law designed to preserve farmland in the Garden State."
Interesting, and red meat to people like us.
But the lefties don’t care, and I can’t imagine that this will change many minds in the center.
Many of them have already left celebs behind for other reasons.
What would be great is to get some short videos displaying their hypocrisy. When it goes viral (I now hate that word) that's when those tools will pay attention.
You are spot on. Plus, the “fans” BELIEVE these stars are better than them. They get weak kneed thinking about the chance to touch one’s garment.
Jason Mattera is great.
I wish I were as smart as he is in my 20’s.
The left’s answer to Mattera is that idiot Ezra Klein.
Mattera would run circles around him.
I remember Martin Sheen shilling for “the homeless” years ago. I don’t know for sure, but I doubt that Martin Sheen lives in a cardboard box over a steam grate.
The biggest one is......they attack the military, then go out and piss off a bunch of terrorists who claim America is too decadent and who are the decadent ones.........?
yes the same people who made all of us targets. thank you.
