A-list actor Chris Pratt constantly talks about deep faith in Christ and his relationship with the Lord.
He’s also an avid hunter and pro-American patriot who calls out faux liberal outrage when he sees it, just like the rest of us.
If Pratt is liberal then President Trump is humble.
Neither is true.
He can’t admit it for obvious reasons, but Chris Pratt is certainly conservative (or at the absolute least, right-leaning).
That reason alone is exactly why TV Guide believes Chris is “problematic” to viewers.
From Daily Wire:
One of the few Hollywood stars that conservatives feel actually sees the world from a similar point of view is “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt, who is willing to openly criticize aspects of liberal culture and proclaim his faith in God, while managing to never come off as self-righteous or self-serving. So, perhaps it’s no surprise that TV Guide would feel compelled to write a hit-piece on Pratt warning its readers about his “problematic life offscreen” that is sure to offend their (presumably left-wing) sensibilities, including that he once mocked “outrage culture.”

The un-Christmas-spirited piece begins by describing Pratt’s transformation from likable TV personality to “Hollywood’s golden boy” with his roles in “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Jurassic World.” But by the end of the second paragraph, TV Guide’s Kaitlyn Thomas introduces the true theme of the piece: not praising Pratt, but portraying him as a “problematic” (right-leaning) icon. Pratt, Thomas writes, “remains the most complicated and divisive of the Chrises.”
“When you take a deeper look at Pratt the man and not necessarily Pratt the actor, some of the shine wears off,” writes Thomas. “Although he can be as funny offscreen as he is on — his recurring ‘What’s My Snack’ videos on Instagram are almost always delightful — it’s impossible to ignore some problematic aspects of his life offscreen.”
Read between the lines. Pratt’s “problems” are that he’s a Christian hunter who doesn’t side with his liberal peers politically.
And for that, Pratt deserves to be shamed. Period.
There’s no other way to interpret the article by TV Guide.
Are conservatives asking for too much when they say social media outlets should be consistent?
If you silence a conservative for saying something silly, shouldn’t the same treatment be extended to a liberal?
Wishful thinking, I suppose.
At the end of the day, the liberal agenda usually wins out.
Check out the tweet Muslim Congresswoman-elect Ilhan Omar (MN) sent, mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith.
Imagine what would happen if Omar was mocked for being Muslim.
Outrage? Wall-to-wall media coverage?
Michelle Malkin nailed it:

In 2012, Omar tweeted about the “evil doings of Israel.”
She stuck by her words six years later.
From Daily Wire:
Omar’s initial tweet came three days after “Palestinian terrorists in Gaza launched more than 150 rockets at Israel” from November 10-13, 2012, reports the Jewish Virtual Library.
The tweet was dug up earlier this year.
Omar’s reponse when forced to defend:
Drawing attention to the apartheid Israeli regime is far from hating Jews. You are a hateful sad man, I pray to Allah you get the help you need and find happiness. https://t.co/SvEXjlxlEN

Omar defended herself against charges of anti-Semitism in a July interview with ABC News, saying: “These accusations are without merit. They are rooted in bigotry toward a belief about what Muslims are stereotyped to believe.”
