Ben Affleck on Republican Actors:
´I Probably Wouldn’t Like
This Person If I Met Him´

NewsBusters, by Noel Sheppard

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/9/2013 12:23:05 PM

Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I

Comments:
Hey Ben, I feel the same way when I see leftists. I´m so tired of these narrow minded crapweasels. I watched a really sweet enjoyable movie Saturday on Hallmark Channel and I had to ignore the fact that one of the parts was played by Ed Asner. All I could think of when I saw him was that he was an evil admitted Socialist. Fortunately he played a minor part so it didn´t ruin the movie.

Ben Affleck is a famous actor and is Batman. He allegedly wrote Good Will Hunting. He has been in a lot of movies. I don´t know why you should care what he thinks.

People need to get over that others happen to disagree with you and enjoy movie/music/inventions/stores, etc.

Funny Ben, I don´t like you either and would never go to one of your movies.

The movie on the Hallmark channel with Ed Asner is about a returning Soldier from Afghanistan and a wonderful heartwarming movie. Well worth watching.

Ben a long time since I saw an actor who wasn´t an actor. Apparently it doesn´t take long for them to believe so much in their character roles that they believe they are always in character.

Sad that there are so few role models in the public eye that these actors are held in such high esteem and are held up by the fourth estate as shining lights of wisdom.

How nice that Ben Affleck grow up as a racist do to his parents. After all that is exactly what a racist is: They make broad assumptions about people they know nothing about. But that is probably why he is a Democrat.

One must bear in mind that in Hollywood, actors/producers make big money largely by being popular and by being in the forefront of the news. The spigot will turn off if they are perceived as being right-wing or as being "old news."

Being liberal protects Hollywood multi-millionaires from accusations of being cold-hearted money grubbers. All they need do is contribute $100k a year to lib candidates and give a few interviews in which they claim to care about the downtrodden. That´s it. They can then earn $20 to $50 million a year and everyone will still love them as big-hearted, caring liberals.

Anyone who could support Gore, Kerry, Obama and Warren just isn´t informed and intelligent enough, and probably shouldn´t be around normal people without a handler to assist them with the everyday tasks of life... kind of like a hollywood actor. At least conservative actors can tell the difference between fantasy and reality, and do not live their life swept into the illusion.

Hate to burst anyone´s bubble but Ed Asner is also a very outspoken liberal. He is a a long time member of Democratic Socialists of America.

As for a list of actors to boycott, you should just filter the list of actors with a list of conservative actors. It is only a handful long. Like journalists, musicians and college professors, actors are overwhelmingly Democrats, Liberals and Socialists---of course they believe it should only be applied to the peons. They are not about to give up their freedoms or assets.

You think I care what a man who wears makeup to work and pretends to be someone else says? He is someone who spouts the Party line so he can keep getting job. I am proud of those in Hollywood who come out as Conservatives or Republicans. It takes a brave person to do that in that Communist community. I feel sorry for his children and hope that they never have to live in a Socialist country having been born in this great Republic. If you like Socialism so much, Sir, take your family and go to Russia or Cuba to live.

Senator Harry Reid came under fire for saying Thursday that supporters of Cliven Bundy are “domestic terrorists,” and in a TV appearance today he doubled down. He appeared on local Nevada program What’s Your Point? with Dean Heller, Nevada’s other senator, and stood by his remarks, calling Bundy’s supporters “domestic violent terrorist wannabes.” Reid said that Bundy “doesn’t believe that the American government is valid” and doesn’t follow the law, bringing up how hundreds of people showed up armed to defend Bundy to argue that they’re basically engaging in an act of domestic terrorism. “600 people came. Armed. They had practice, they

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is not interested in running for the U.S. Senate in Kansas, the New York Times reported. A Sebelius spokeswoman told the newspaper in a story posted late Thursday that the secretary is "continuing her important work at H.H.S. and is not considering a run for the Senate." Earlier this week, the Times reported Sebelius, who recently tendered her resignation from the high-profile Cabinet job, was "considering entreaties from Democrats" to run against GOP Sen. Pat Roberts back home in Kansas. President Obama announced Sebelius´ resignation last week and said he would nominate Sylvia

Every year the White House hosts an Easter egg roll, and the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals are trying to get the White House to use plastic eggs instead of real, hard-boiled ones with a new campaign specifically targeting First Lady Michelle Obama. And a big part of the campaign is a video PETA put online featuring little girls telling Obama they’re not mad, just “disappointed.” The little girls try to convince her to break tradition, asking, “If all the other first ladies jumped off a bridge, would you?” and asking her to put herself in the shoes of the chickens that had to lay all those thousands and thousands of eggs.

WASHINGTON—Speaker John Boehner and other senior House Republicans are telling donors and industry groups that they aim to pass immigration legislation this year, despite the reluctance of many Republicans to tackle the divisive issue before the November elections. Many lawmakers and activists have assumed the issue was off the table in an election year. But Mr. Boehner said at a Las Vegas fundraiser last month he was "hellbent on getting this done this year," according to two people in the room. A spokesman for Mr. Boehner didn´t dispute the account but said no action is possible until President Barack Obama

One of the few laws of political science is that when governments make mistakes, they tend to be whoppers. Luckily for them, the public’s memory is short, and the outrage of today soon declines into the apathy of tomorrow. From several articles published in a recent edition of the British Medical Journal, it appears that many governments around the world, including those of Britain and the US, may have made such a mistake in stockpiling billions of dollars’ worth of anti-flu medications, bought principally from Roche, the largest pharmaceutical company in the world as measured by capitalization. First the governments overestimated the

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already
