We all know that Hollywood Royalty and recording Divas and Rock Stars have long supported Democrats and their causes. Many Billionaires such as Bill Gates and Warren Buffet have openly supported liberal causes.
Whether it is by public relations extortion or personal belief is, of course, up for debate. Nevertheless, they have openly supported some of the socialist agendas.
Of course, we now know for a certainty what actor Robert De Niro thinks of President Trump. Considering that the actor has built a real-estate empire worth close to $1-Billion, one would think that he would at least be on board with Trump’s economic agenda.
Then there is the global pop superstar, Madonna. The day after the President or shortly after that, she took to the stage wearing her pink pu**y hat relating her fantasies of “blowing up the White House.” This is coming from a lady who has an estate worth some $590,000,000.00 after debt. I’m guessing she sold quite a few copies of “Like a Virgin.”
Then we have our beloved social media giant Mark Zuckerberg. Mr. Zuckerberg — who is about as openly liberal as they come — is sitting on stock and cash worth a staggering $72-Billion. One would think that our King of Facebook would want to protect the behemoth that he has created, but no, he still endorses and supports socialists candidates for public office.
Since I am not a psychologist or mental health expert in any way, shape, or fashion (other than to say, I hear fishing is good for the psyche), I am going to refrain from offering reasons as to “why” these very wealthy people have traditionally supported liberalism. My only comment will be that “up until now,” the liberal Democrats have only soaked their wallets for $2,500 a plate rubber chicken meals at rather fancy fundraising dinners. THAT IS ABOUT TO ALL CHANGE!
As we used to say out West Texas, “them chickens is coming home to roost cowboy.”
These liberal elitists are about to have the opportunity to donate heavily to their favorite causes.
The Democrats field of top-contenders is stacked with openly socialist candidates who are now not even trying to hide the fact that they are going to begin “seizing wealth” when they are sworn in. Yes, Mr. Zuckerberg, she is coming for your billions! Yes, you can put an “s” at the end of the word “Billion” because you’re now in the most hated economic category.
In an article put out yesterday by CNBC economics site, they are reporting that under Senator Warren’s economic proposal, multi-billionaire and Amazon founder Jeff Bezos would pay an addition $6,000,000,000.00 in income taxes annually, not counting his wealth confiscation tax. Since Bezos is reportedly worth around $100-Billion and Zuckerberg is worth only $71-72 Billion, this would mean that he would only pony up around $4,000,000,000.00 a year in seized wealth tax. Lucky guy!
For some light reading, this CNBC article explains “how Warren plans on paying for her grandmaster scheme of Medicare for All.”
Someone famous once said, “Be careful what you ask for; you may just get it.”
For decades actresses Merle Streep, Barbra Streisand, Cher, and a boatload of other Hollywood elitists have called on the government and the wealthy to “take care” of the poor and the hungry. Of course, this was supposed to be with tax-payers money, not theirs. The reality is, this money usually came from the middle-class ticket buyers of their movies and concerts, but nevertheless, it was never with their money. That is all about to change if Elizabeth Warren is elected President of these United States.
The Hollywood royalty wanted to feed and care for the world, well their about to get their wish. Warren, Sanders, Kamala, and the gang all want to provide the “world” (who is crossing daily into our nation illegally) with food, clothing, healthcare, etc., they are about to have their deepest desires fulfilled. Only this time, it will be with their personal bank accounts!
I have to confess; I am sitting on the edge of my seat wondering how Mr. Zuckerberg’s or Mr. Bezos’s public relations department plan on spinning this when they have to pull billions out of their checking accounts to pay for Elizabeth’s agenda.
Let’s be honest here. Most, if not all, of the hyperbole coming from the mega-rich, is usually for just that; public relations. Yes, they set up foundations as Bill Gates did — but through tax loopholes — they can write most of this off, and it actually costs them very little to set up these sorts of things, but the public thinks they are so generous and care for us “peasants” after the press conferences announcing these “oh so benevolent acts.”
In the end, they wanted to be rid of President Donald Trump. They hate Republicans and have funded and endorsed the Democrat’s efforts to elect more of these loving and generous types. They might very well get their wishes granted in a few months. When, and if they were accomplish their goals, I cannot wait to hear one of them scream when Elizabeth Warren, or Bernie, or whoever comes to their doors with the hand out to fork over that check.
I wonder if Madonna will donate a pink hat to Elizabeth to wear? Then we will answer the $64 question, “will the Hollywood royalty still support the Democrat Party?”
