Posted on 02/01/2019 9:22:25 AM PST by Ennis85
A "fired up" Ellen Page slammed the Trump administration, and in particular Vice President Mike Pence, for its anti-LGBTQ policies and rhetoric during an emotional interview on The Late Show on Thursday night.
Touching upon the Tuesday attack on Empire actor Jussie Smollett in what Chicago police are calling a possible hate crime, Page said that it was "impossible to not be fired up" with the political situation in the country at the moment. Page focused her ire on Pence, the former governor of Indiana, for his ultra-conservative views on same-sex marriage and conversion therapy.
It feels impossible not to feel this way right now with the president and the Vice President Mike Pence, who wishes I could not be married, lets just be clear, the Gaycation star said. The vice president of America wishes I didnt have the love with my wife. He wanted to ban that in Indiana, he believes in conversion therapy, he has hurt LGBTQ people so badly as the governor of Indiana, she added as Late Show host Stephen Colbert held up a picture of Page and her wife, Emma Portner.
Page then suggested that you could "connect the dots" between the policies and rhetoric of people in power and the attack on Smollett and other minorities and marginalized people.
"If you are in a position of power and you hate people and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering, what do you think is going to happen? Kids are going to be abused, and theyre going to kill themselves and people are going to be beaten on the street, a visibly angry Page said.
Fighting back tears, Page then alluded to her Viceland show Gaycation, which explores LGBTQ stories from around the world. I have traveled the world and I have met the most marginalized people you could meet, she said.
She added: I am lucky to have this time and the privilege to say this. This needs to fucking stop.
Why do you want to make us barf?
Ellen Degenerate is guilty of projection. She is the one with a burning hatred of Christians who actually follow the teachings of the bible.
“Ultra-conservative views on same-sex marriage”.
Nope. Overwhelmingly popular consensus centrist views, not just in the United States whenever it was put to a popular vote but around the whole world.
Why is she an anti-Christian bigot?
Someone needs to ask her what exactly Donald Trump and Mike Pence have done since they were elected in 2016 to harm homosexuals, other than, you know, breathe.
It’s a different Ellen. This one is another arrogant ultra liberal Canuck actor who think it is their station in life to lecture down to Americans and make ones like us cringe big time as an embarrassment to their own country.
Same views btw that both Obama and Hilary Clinton held before they conveniently “evolved” their positions.
Who is Ellen Page, and why would anyone possibly give even an iota a damn about she/he/it thinks .. about anything ?!
And we should give a flying frak what a talentless Canadian actress has to say about our President because ...?
This needs to fucking stop????
Can the left ever express themselves without use of profanity?????
Because faggie hermaphrodites are destined to rule the world, all .00125 percent of them!
“”If you are in a position of power and you hate people and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering,””
She’s describing democrats - not the vice president. Because someone has a different opinion from your own, that means you hate them and want to cause them suffering? How did these people get past the age of 10 without realizing that people differ in their opinions on a whole host of subjects? Were they raised in a cave?
“”Can the left ever express themselves without use of profanity?????””
It sure doesn’t appear to be so. Yesterday, we had a dose of Bette Middler’s vocabulary. They are really all unhinged.
I never heard of the fool in this story.
For more commentary:
There are now several FR threads about this loser.
Agreed. I recall reading an interview with Tammy Bruce and she said that during her years working with NOW in Los Angeles back in the 1980s and 90s, the most racist and sexist and homophobic remarks she heard came from people who prided themselves as liberal Democrat types.
Yeah, but she played a girl with a baby. So she is bad too! Ha ha. (Obvious sarcasm.)
Who is Ellen Page? WHy is she commenting on the obvious FAKE HOAX crime in Chicago?
Trying to get some LGBTQ tribe stuff going when no one cares ,Obama gave them everything they want and no one cares
