(NationalSentinel) During World War II, Hollywood went to war with the rest of the country. Many of the era’s biggest stars – Jimmy Stewart, Bob Barker, James Doohan, Joe Joe DiMaggio, Jackie Coogan, Henry Fonda, Johnny Carson, Art Carney, Mel Brooks, Charleton Heston, Charles Bronson and others – either enlisted or were drafted into service to fight the global threat of Nazism and Fascism.
But today’s Hollywood is nothing like that of the 1940s. Today, the entertainment industry is filled with self-centered, egotistical Leftists who hate the America that existed then. If, God forbid, America found herself embroiled in a third global conflict, how many “stars” would step up and serve under President Donald J. Trump, our commander-in-chief?
Judging by the pre-Academy Awards political tone, few, if any. It’s all Trump hate, all the time.
From USA Today:
The heavy political overtones accompanying this year’s Academy Awards became evident in advance of Sunday’s ceremony, as directors of the five foreign-language film nominees Friday issued an unprecedented advance statement condemning “the climate of fanaticism and nationalism” in the U.S. and other countries.
They dedicated the Oscar, no matter which film wins, to those working toward unity.
“We believe there is no best country, best gender, best religion or best color. We want this award to stand as a symbol of the unity between nations and the freedom of the arts.”
[How, pray tell, do we achieve “unity?” Answer: By agreeing with every Left-wing fanatic’s point of view on everything. When we all do that, we will have achieved “unity.” Until then, the Left will continue to pretend it gets to decide cultural, political and social norms and mores for the entire planet.]
From The Wrap, which reported that stars are on the warpath against Trump:
Industry pros, entertainers and civilians assembled by the hundreds today for United Talent Agency’s “United Voices” rally outside the company’s Beverly Hills headquarters.
Among the featured speakers at the event protesting Trump administration immigration policies was Oscar-winner Jodie Foster, who told the crowd that “it’s time to engage.”
“As the very, very dead Frederick Douglass one said, ‘Anytime is a good time for illumination,’” Foster said. “And this is the time for illumination. I believe this time is filled with light.”

The Belfast Telegraph:
In Ireland to accept an honour, the Oscar-winning director said recent global developments remind him of the years leading into the Second World War.
“Being fascinated by history, I read as much as I can,” he told an audience at Trinity College Dublin.
“It just reminds me of the late 20s, the 30s .. reading about how these things could have happened at that time.
“It’s a scary time.”
It’s “scary” only for the Alt-Left, which is desperate to hang onto power.
Because the fact is, if anyone is responsible for the rising nationalism taking place throughout the West – and this is something Hollywood seems incapable of understanding – it is the globalist Left. For decades a small cabal of uber-wealthy political and financial elite have been redistributing the wealth and resources of the West, primarily that belonging to the United States, in a bid to control more and more of the world. Trump is the antithesis to that continual Leftward political shift. He is trying to restore the American republic, and these idiots in Hollywood (and elsewhere) are fighting him tooth and nail.
They have no clue what they’re doing.
Trump’s electoral victory has not ushered in some “nationalist” movement. Americans saw in his candidacy an underlying sense of patriotism they’d not seen in decades, and certainly not throughout the eight years of the Obama administration. And herein lies the problem: Patriotism – or at least American patriotism – is reviled by the Alt-Left in Hollywood. They shared Obama’s vision of America – it’s racist, it’s bigoted, it’s homophobic and inherently unfair. It steals the world’s resources and is a threat to global peace, not a protector of it.
They have been brainwashed into believing that their own country is the problem in the world, and that we need to be taken down several notches because we ‘are no better than anyone else.’
Really? What other nation on the planet enjoys the freedoms and protections Americans do? What other nation on the planet is, singlehandedly, capable of defending all other nations if need be? Which nation truly is among the most generous in the world? What other global superpower throughout history has been as benevolent as we have been?
Trump – as well as other patriotic leaders in Europe – are rising because citizens of the West have grown weary of being extorted by globalists who stump for a borderless society in which the fruits and labor of one nation is not its to keep, but which must be shared with “the world.” Hollywood’s elite Left believes we haven’t given enough. They think we still “owe” the world something because nothing we’ve done, created or developed is genuine or hasn’t been stolen from someone else.
Would Hollywood’s stars fight today to preserve the United States of America, under a President Donald Trump? Judging by their own rhetoric and their own actions, hell no, they wouldn’t.
