Gay Actor Says Not All Republicans Are Racist, Leftists Rake Him Over The Coals

Published

Gay actor Jonathan Van Ness, star of the Netflix reboot “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” recently made a controversial statement that has made him a target by fellow liberals who exhibited their abundance of tolerance by then taking him behind the proverbial woodshed.

What did Van Ness say that was so bad? He dared to state an obvious fact: not all Republicans are racists.

This sent shock waves through the entire entertainment industry apparently.

Jonathan Van Ness, who is far from Republican, dared to tell fans in a Twitter explanation of Tuesday’s nights favorable Democratic primary results that they should be “tolerant” of other points of view and not immediately assume everyone who disagrees with them politically is, by definition, evil.

Looking for political compromise, Van Ness noted, can lead to victories.

“Luckily a lot [of] extreme right people won yesterday, meaning that if we can come up w center left candidates we can take back the house & senate, not to mention many state legislatures. It is so important for the left to not go too left or we are done for,” Van Ness tweeted.

“Not all republicans are racist,” he added, in a second Tweet, issued a bit later. “Just like not all democrars [sic] are evil, we have to stop demonizing each other,” he continued. “Unless you’re actually racist then you suck, Trump is Racist – not all his voters are necessarily we gotta remember we are all in this together.”

That, it turns out, was the wrong thing to say. Twitter — and Van Ness’ mentions, no doubt — lit up, as leftists took the reality television makeover show star to task for so much as suggesting his political allies come into contact with anyone who might challenge their views.

While conservatives may disagree with Van Ness’ lifestyle choices, there’s a lot truth to what he said. Most voters in America are not far left or far right, but fall somewhere in the middle. Centrist candidates on both sides tend to fair better than those who are further to the left or right.

Amazingly, the backlash Van Ness received isn’t leaving him phased in the slightest, which is a darn good thing.

It’s a sad day in America when a person can call for humility and civility between individuals and end up getting slammed for it. This is how far divided folks have become. Let’s hope that changes soon.

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…

Check Out This List Of Celebrities Who Have Promised To Leave America If Trump Wins

Published

During the last election cycle in 2016, a number of famous folks in a wide range of industries were so distraught by the idea of a President Donald Trump that they vowed to flee from the country if he took home a victory over Hillary Clinton. Fast forward four years later, and basically, none of those people went anywhere. You know why? Because there is no other country on the planet where they can make the obscene amounts of money they pull down for playing music or starring in films, while also not being taxed into oblivion. It’s all just blustering. You’d think they’d be quiet about that kind of thing this go around, knowing that none of us in the real world believe their childish ranting. But, here we are, in 2020, and celebrities are once again making promises they do not intend to keep. via Daily Wire: Bruce Springsteen The Boss said he’d quit the U.S. and just might move to Australia if Trump wins reelection on Nov. 3. “I would consider that,” he said Oct. 14 during a virtual chat with Australian press, according to The Daily Mail. “I love Australia,” he said. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.” The Boss also went on to predict without a doubt that President Trump would lose on Tuesday, and that if he’s wrong he’ll “see you on the next plane.” Tommy Lee, drummer for Motley Crue said he finds America “embarrassing” and thinks that folks in Europe mock us and said if Trump wins he’s “out of here.” Good riddance. “Dude, I swear to God if that happens, then I’m coming over to…
