America is growing tired of hearing Hollywood elitists push their views upon the people. These entertainers need to realize that they are not special and especially not in some way placed on a moral perch above the rest of us.
Meryl Streep stated just recently at the Golden Globe Awards, “You and all of us in this room, really, belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it. Hollywood, foreigners, and the press. But who are we? And, you know, what is Hollywood anyway? It’s just a bunch of people from other places.”
There are two incredibly important takeaways from this statement. First, that Hollywood has actually convinced itself that while sitting at an awards show with millions of people watching while wearing clothes and jewelry worth more than the average American makes in a year, they are being victimized by those of us that pay them their salary by watching their productions. Secondly, and equally important, is her realization that Hollywood actors and actresses are just people. People who pretend to be other people for our entertainment.
This group, that feels compelled to instruct us on how we live our lives compose our ethics, is comprised of people who know nothing of the real world. They are catered to, babied after, and when they don’t get their way, they throw world class temper tantrums. It is time that we let them know we are tired of their uneducated and unwarranted chastises.
