Hollywood’s Blowhards – Good Riddance

hollywood blowhards want to leave America if Trump wins

In the 1300s, a “blower” was a person who thought much of themselves, blustered, threatened, and made “much of their muchness,” to misquote Shakespeare. By the 1800s, they were called “blowhards,” a navy term for self-important know-nothings.  Hollywood is filled with them – many threatening to “leave America” if Trump wins. Good on you, let’s do it, good riddance.

So far, between 2016 and today – from public sources – we have an impressive group ready to “leave America” if Trump wins, or pledges to do so. Do not get excited – but let’s keep ‘em to it.

The “Never America” crowd includes Barbara Streisand, Taylor Swift, Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer, Omari Hardwick, Snoop Dog, Samual Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Miley Cyrus, George Lopez, Raven Symone, Bryan Cranston, Neve Campbell, Ne-Yo, and a dozen others. 

Interestingly, Cher and Jon Stewart – either secret admirers of Elon Musk, or like Biden, of China  – have pledged to “leave the planet.”  So, ready the rocket.

Confidentially, looking at that list, half of these people have no meaning to me. The other half I had forgotten. If they choose to depart for Iran, Russia, China, Venezuela, Cuba, Laos, Gambia, Gaza, Canada, or France – making that their new home, no loss. As they say, c’est la vie!

Take a look at what America has done for these ungrateful snots – an insult to sinus hydration. While they criticize capitalism, limited government, tradition, and Trump’s policies, they bank ungodly wealth. On the one hand, good for them. On the other, get real. They owe what they have to … America.

Barbara Streisand is worth $430 million, Taylor Swift worth $1.1 billion, Lena Dunham $12 million, Amy Schumer $45 million, Omari Hardwick $5 million, Snoop Dog $160 million, $250 million, $60 million, Miley Cyrus $160 million, George Lopez $45 million, Raven Symone $40 million, Bryan Cranston $40 million, Neve Campbell $10 million, Ne-Yo $9 million …

Note: Median worth for those of median income and in their prime (40 to 44) is $134.730, house, car, and retirement.

So let me say this straight, and personally. More than 20 of my family lie in Arlington. Eighty percent of all Americans have a veteran in their family. None of my relatives, and likely most of those, have anything like that wealth – nowhere near.

Now hear me on this:  I do not – unlike communists, socialists, and anti-capitalists – have any problem with people earning, keeping what they earn, getting rich, and thanking God and America – our blessed Constitution, history, bygone patriots, and the miraculous free market – for their luck.

But lack of gratitude, a sense that you can take the money and run, owe no one, and take down someone like Trump, being reamed by a corrupt group of hacks, and then castigate the likes of Reagan, Buckley, Ike, Bradely, Patton, and those who made that wealth possible, that angers me.

We live in a time when people bluster, blather, and bluntly embarrass themselves on TV shows like “The Five,” CNN, MSNBC, and Networks, pure self-aggrandizing entertainment. They have no idea – really and truly none, no real understanding, of what made their happy lives happen.

What bothers me, and I walk Arlington often, those inexpressibly humbling, pristine, sobering rows of stones, tearing up as cannot help it – is that these buffoons, known-nothings have absolutely no appreciation … no idea, what they are doing, saying, and missing, what their ingratitude looks like.

So, here is the thing.  We do not have perfect candidates, and never will. We elect people willing to step into the arena, get beaten up, and abused, and yet – in the spirit of Rocky, keep at it for America.

Rocky was fiction, but the message is real: We honor those who came before, we fight for the right, and we do not back down when criticized, punched, or forced to endure. That is America. We Americans –real Americans – would NEVER leave America.

Bottom line: For those who think the answer, when Trump wins, is to “leave America,” then have at it. Enjoy the Russian, Chinese, and Iranian life. We do not need more blowhards. Good riddance.

Bottom Line: “Do as we say, not as we do”
Well I have a bottom line for the Hollywood elites: “Pound sand”
I am fed up with you clowns threatening to leave the country if Trump (or whoever is not a Socialist) gets in office, BUT YOU NEVER LEAVE!
All you do is spew your venom against everything that is decent, upright, wholesome and good.
I hope Kathy Griffin is one of the first to leave amongst others of her ilk, followed by the folks on The View. (Hey, I hear Somalia is nice this time of year) Bon Voyáge.

Mr. Charles I agree with you and Max. These so called “elites” don’t speak for me. As you have stated they should be totally grateful for what our country has allowed them to accumulate in their lifetime and realize the men and women that have gone before them gave them the freedom to do so.

Let them leave, and take their money with them, but stamp their passports “NO READMITTANCE” and cancel their citizenship, because they are most rightly NOT good citizens!

This article , that provides examples of how not to be a good citizen and how not to have respect for the United States of America, has importance. Good character,like what the Scouts list as the qualities necessary, ( the Scout handbook I have is the Sixth Edition published in 1959 ).and a Code of conduct are the basic things necessary to live right and responsibly.. Realizing the significance of what the National Character is all about helps too..I do believe that this Work Ethic for Toolmakers I wrote a few years ago is in tune with the soul and spirit of this issue ,” A Work Ethic for Toolmakers – Making tools that are necessary to accomplish mechanical tasks; to advance and increase knowledge by building things that are needed thereby improving the economy; in the support of public safety and the defense of freedom through the encouragement of craftsmanship and good citizenship; contributing to the betterment of life through development of mental and physical skills by designing , making and using tools for good purposes.”. I have been making tools since 1974. This article you wrote Robert is commendable – it will help to strengthen Liberty and strengthen what civilization is based on too . Well done Sir. Courage , Truth , Faith.

The biggest problem with the Hollywood liberal elites is with the MSM, both news and entertainment. The media treats them as if they are wise, experienced scholars or statesmen whose opinions are much more valuable and informed than the common citizen. When, in fact, their lifestyles have put them out of touch with reality.

My parents were immigrants on the 1920s, never made much money, but always said they were so grateful to be in America, which despite its faults is still the best place in the world. So to these Hollywood idiots: Bon Voyage!

I have some questions for the people who are threatening to leave the U.S. if Trump wins: 1. When will you leave? 2. will you need help packing? 2. Will you need a ride to the airport? Also, a comment, if you do leave, DON’T COME BACK!

We won’t miss any of them but they should have to leave all their ‘American $$$$’ here when they go. Thing is, I doubt any other country wants the blowhards either. But they have all been ‘threatening’ for ages and yet they are still here. TRUMP 2024!!!!

Many of the same people vowed to do the same thing if Trump won in 2016. He won and they never mentioned it again and stayed in the US. Did MSM ask any of them about their vow? Nope!! They are all alike.
Obviously they care nothing about not keeping their word. But then they make their fortunes pretending to be someone else. They present themselves as one thing but live a totally different life. The term for that his hypocrite. Their vows are meant to persuade others but have no intention of keeping them.

I think that China, Russia, Sudan, Afghanistan,Gaza should all be proud to have anti-Americans in the USA it .makes their job easier. I won’t go to Taylor Swift concert no cars about what she is wearing. Alot.of.kids do so.that is how.she is rich. 90% of the others listed, I have no clue sho they are. The one I recognizes are has been or never really were. I think they should all get .on there private jets and go..just go..All the rest of us can take z beg on how .long they would be gone. They have a life of.privilege here and are so far removed from ordinary real people that they have no. They don’t have go sork.cor.a.living so they have no clue.Really they have no clue. Would one of there servants let them in on reality.

Wonderful article. The people listed are totally irrelevant to me anyway. They will not leave America because they know that America was where they made their money. Thank you Mr. Charles!

They said the same thing in 2016 but didn’t keep their promise. The only time these ppl would flee the country is when they’re caught molesting underage girls and boys. Then they have to receive their Oscars in absentia!

That’s the problem with cowards they talk and say nothing and do nothing for the people or country that has given them what they have. I know not very Christian, but it wouldn’t bother me at all if the plane they all leave on is suddenly raptured by the good Lord. Even that would be to good for them.

All these blowhards, Trump haters, etc. who hate the very thought of him winning the Presidency back again….what are they REALLY afraid of? My only answer is the TRUTH! They are all living in a fantasy world where truth is never spoken, only despised, and those who speak it are to be equally despised and ridiculed! Keep speaking the truth Mr. Trump, and you shall persevere!!

The Bible says to pray for your enemies. People who hate America truly need our prayers that the blinders may be removed from their eyes and their ears can hear truth. Jesus said Forgive them, for they know not what they do.

This is on point, well said.
No actor or actress should be giving political advice. They are paid to act!
Or sing and some are very bad at it .

Curious can we add the Blowhard politicians like Maxine Waters and then throw out the radical racially corrupt treasonous government officials like Omar , Talib , Cortez , Presley, Bush, Schiff and many other idiots ????????
America would be a better place without them.
Let’s get them booked on a flight over the Indian Ocean where planes seem to mysteriously Disappear .

You mean “hollywood monkey”! Where America or modern civilization ever got the idea that fantasy is good, just beats the heck out of me!Actors and actresses are highly overpaid, just like athletes. I guess selling soap, kotex, beer and tampons are too important! If I save a billion dollars not advertising a self seller, don’t I still make a billion? It’s like commercials, I’ve never seen a commercial that made me want to buy anything! Oh well I guess I have more common sense than most.
