Hollywood Democrats Who Want Republicans to Leave America

Democrats are very tolerant. Of other Democrats of course. Take that great political philosopher Cher, for example. At the recent Slumdog Millionaire/The Wrestler awards party in Los Angeles, she told the press, “The Republicans nearly killed me. My spirit is renewed, this is such a great time to be an American.”

And apparently the penalty for the attempted murder (or near negligent manslaughter) of Cher by the collective Republican population is exile. “Republicans: why would you want to be one, especially if you’re a minority. I wish they would go somewhere else.”

That’s right, you shouldn’t want to be a minority. And minorities should just go somewhere else. Wow, think of what would have hit the fan if a Republican had said that.

After the previous elections, the Hollywood Democrats threatened to move somewhere else, because it was better to live outside of America than to live under a Republican president.  Now that they have the presidency, they want anyone who disagrees with them to move away. They can’t stand to be in the same country with anyone who is not like them.

Doesn’t sound very tolerant, does it?

    No, not by any definition. It seems to me that the word “tolerance” has been redefined by today’s society to mean “approval.” Unlike the Democrats you cite in this post, I’m very, very tolerant of lots of people who do things I believe are wrong, and who believe things I happen to disagree with. I believe “tolerance” really means being able to put up gracefully with things of which you don’t approve. Truly tolerant people of the world, unite!

  2. Michael Says:

    I meant to say “graciously.”

  3. Steve Says:

    I seem to remember a slogan: “America: love it or leave it.”

    Still seems to be current.

    I think that was the attitude a lot of Republicans had toward all the Hollywood Democrats who threatened to leave when W was elected. Now that they are in the ascendancy, it seems they are saying to Republicans, “America: we’d love it better without you, so please leave it.”

    I don’t mind the sentiment. At least, I don’t mind it from those with half a clue about US history. The very reason this nation was founded was to build a form of government quite different and distinct from anything else available in the world. Why are some people so insistent that now, after the success of the concept has been historically validated, we scrap it and govern ourselves like every other nation when the very intent was to do just the opposite? To those people I would ask, why do want to make the US into something that has already proven itself less prosperous. If they’re that enamored by it, go live there. I’m not defending our flaws, but we shouldn’t try to fix them by yanking the foundation out from under ourselves.

    Cher is you typical Hollywood screwball. These freaks walk amongst us as if they were gods and goddesses. Their opinions mean nothing because they do not live in reality. As a conservitive, I will never leave my country and will never allow a Hollywood liberal to call the shots.

  7. J.J. Says:

    tolerance is the virtue of a man without conviction.

  8. Carl Bogus Says:

    I appreciate the “tolerance” sentiment, but I would expand on it.

    Tolerance is the virtue of man with Christian convictions. I’m no expert in these matters, so, those of you who are, please correct me if I’m wrong, but to my mind, eastern religions aren’t tolerant, they are indifferent (I would place J.J.’s complacent, perhaps ignorant, in this group as well); other religions (e.g., Islam, Atheism) are militant. Christianity is the only religion that is truly tolerant — that extends the hand of compassion and mercy hoping that one day those who are lost will accept the free gift of salvation.

    There really is no other motivation to be tolerant.

    Again, I think you have look at the definition of “tolerant” being used. In the original post, I was using in the way that Michael defines it in the first comment. I think the Left has used it in the first sense he describes, particularly when describing the lack of tolerance.

    The definitions used by J.J. and Carl are nuanced around these in different ways.

    J.J., I certainly can’t disagree with your sentiments with regard to Hollywood liberals.

    Carl, you could say that Islam is tolerant by your definition, as it is always willing for anyone convert, and thus have the benefit of living in submission to Allah and the opportunity to go to Paradise.

    I would go back to Michael’s definition and say that Christians should be tolerant in the sense that this demonstrates longsuffering, gentleness and self-control.

    I would agree with your definition that Christianity is tolerant, in that Jesus does (and thus the Church should) receive people as they are.

  10. Carl Bogus Says:

    Sol — In what way does Islam extend a hand of compassion and mercy when one of the basic tenants of Islam is convert or die? Perhaps my particular choice of words mislead…

  11. sol Says:

    Well, it is more merciful to let you convert than to just kill you.

    Actually, mainstream Islam doesn’t have a convert-or-die tenant. Islam has a long history of dhimmitude. In fact, when Jews were being purged from Christian countries, and especially Spain, in the 15th century, during a convert-or-die policy, those with those with the necessary means tended to flee to the Ottoman Empire.

    Islam is rather hard on backsliders, though. Once converted, if you reject Islam, killing you is about the only way to give you a chance to get into Paradise. So you could say that this is a mercy killing.

    The points above are all very insightful, thanks very much.

  13. Jacki Says:

    Well, let’s not be hypocritical. It’s ok for Country-Western singers to be on the right? Tit for tat.

  14. sol Says:

    It is okay for Hollywood celebrities to be on the left. I would disagree with any Country-Western singer who said that Democrats should leave America.
