Actor Chris Pratt has found himself in hot water with social justice warriors after his joke about the 2020 election backfired with the humorless, soy-latte drinking, perpetually outraged basement dwellers.
In a post to Instagram, Pratt promoted his Pixar film “Onward” and asked his fans to vote for the movie for the People’s Choice Awards, which takes place on November 15. He also took an epic swipe at virtue-signaling Hollywood elites for their alarmist and incessant calls for Americans to vote in the upcoming election.
“With all that’s going on in the world it is more important than ever that you vote,” he wrote to his fans. “Just ask any celebrity. They will tell you. Every day. Several times a day. To vote. But me? I will tell you EXACTLY who to vote for. #onward The heroes before us did not spill their blood only to have their sacrifices wasted by your apathy. The upcoming 2020 People’s Choice Awards is the most consequential vote in the history of mankind times a million infinity. Vote for #Onward for family movie of the year. Or else. You WILL die. No hyperbole. Click the link in my bio. Let your voice be heard.”
Fox News reports, Pratt was barraged with negative comments:
“I get this is supposed to be a cute little joke but it comes off as really insensitive. The upcoming election is really important and everyone should vote and for you to try and take that and turn it into an ad for your movie is low,” one person wrote.
“This is super insensitive. Read the room. Oh wait you did and decided to mock people,” another said.
Someone else pointed out, “I wish I found this funny.”
While another followed pointed out, “YIKES. Imagine the amount of privilege one person can have to write this tone-deaf post.”
This isn’t the first time Pratt has offended the sensibilities of liberals. In fact, last year, Democrats almost had a meltdown when he dared to wear a t-shirt emblazoned with a Gadsen flag– –a symbol which the Left decided to associate with “white supremacists.”
Affluent Chicagoans Fleeing Due to Leadership Inability to Calm BLM Violence
Many people, including President Trump himself, noted during their Republican National Convention speeches that Democratic-run cities are experiencing violence and looting, as the leaders whose policies are to blame are safely hidden in privileged areas. However, areas like Chicago have become so bad, affluent neighborhoods are no longer safe and citizens are getting out of dodge.
“Incidents of widespread looting and soaring homicide figures in Chicago have made national news during an already tumultuous year,” writes the Chicago Tribune. “As a result, some say residents in affluent neighborhoods downtown, and on the North Side, no longer feel safe in the city’s epicenter and are looking to move away.”
Liberal leadership has been unsuccessful at subduing violence from the Black Lives Matter’s highjacked movement. With no end of destruction in sight and spontaneous eruptions of violence, while residents say “they understand why protesters and rioters have poured onto the streets of downtown, and some acknowledge that crime is worse in other parts of Chicago” they still want out reports the Chicago Tribune.
Some people “agree with protesters that something systemic needs to be changed” but they “don’t want to wait it out here in the city, fearful of stepping outside at night and hoping for things to maybe get better.” A 30-year-old nurse who lives in the River North area said, “not to make it all about us; the whole world is suffering…but I do think that I’ve never had to think about my own safety in this way before.”
Hopefully, this will be a lesson to Chicagoans and similar cities, that they need to vote out their Democratic leadership who refuse to stand up to the violent protesters and also refuse to accept help and assistance offered directly from President Trump. 60-year-old Neil Spun has lived in Chicago for over half his life and is deeply conflicted about moving. A state worker, Spun said “there have been rights before, and looting. It just seems to me now that the city isn’t doing anything about it. I don’t see this getting any better, and so I’d like to leave.” Residents would be far better off voting in new leadership instead of succumbing to liberal policies that change their communities beyond recognition.
Comedian Chris Rock Says Democratic Leadership Let Coronavirus ‘Pandemic Come In’
Comedian Chris Rock has a surprising message for Democratic leadership; they were too busy trying to impeach Trump to focus on the coronavirus pandemic. Rock said they let the “pandemic come in.” In an interview with the New York Times, Rock went all-in on his assessment of 2020. While he did not have anything positive to say about Trump, he certainly had plenty to chastise Democrats for.
Rock compared the current government to the movie The Last Emperor, in which the emperor of China was only 5-years old. “There’s a kid and he’s the king. So I’m like, it’s all the Democrats’ fault. Because you knew that the emperor was 5 years old. And when the emperor’s 5 years old, they only lead in theory” said Rock.
And the lack of leadership Rock was most vocal on had to deal with the spread of COVID-19. Speaking about Democrats, Rock said, “Their thing was, ‘we’re going to get him impeached,’ which was never going to happen. You let the pandemic come in. Yes, we can blame Trump, but he’s really the 5-year-old.”
As for Republicans, Rock said they “tell outright lies” but it’s Democrats that “leave out key pieces of the truth that would lead to a more nuanced argument.” In conclusion, “it’s all fake news” he said. The Sun, which reported on Rock’s interview with the Times, brings up facts that support Rock’s accusations.
“Democrats were focused on impeaching Trump in January when the coronavirus began spreading in China,” wrote The Sun. Another gem the Sun reminds us of is when “Pelosi was shown on television ripping apart a copy of Trump’s State of the Union address, which noted that the White House ‘will take all necessary steps to safeguard our citizens from [the coronavirus] threat.”
Despite the fact that a 5-year-old emperor would likely not be nominated for not one, but two Nobel Peace Prizes obviously escaped Rock. At least he has an understanding of the damage the Democrats’ fanatical obsession with pursuing a Trump impeachment was for our nation.
