Angelina Jolie and Clooney: Massive Hypocrites When it Comes to Refugees...
In light of the refugee crisis sweeping the globe, Angelina Jolie and George Clooney have hopped on the bandwagon to
cling to relevancy make a point.
There's an ongoing ugly pattern of beautiful people saying moronic things. Advice to actors? Stick to the scripts, my lovelies. You do poorly without them. Pro-tip.
Anyway, Hollywood elite have been bearing the cross of telling America how to live... but they're not leading by example or anything (read Dear Leonardo DiCaprio: You Self-Righteous, Hypocritical, Energy-Guzzling Jackass). Don't be crazy.
The international community must do more, a drenched Jolie demanded as she braved the driving rain in Lebanon. In an impassioned plea, she went to attack the 'tragic' failure to resolve the Syrian war which has forced millions to flee their homes. 'We cannot manage the world through aid relief in the place of diplomacy and political solutions.' She said it's 'tragic and shameful that we seem to be so far from that point.'
Angelina Jolie sat in the pouring rain to deliver that message... before going home to one of three multi-million dollar mansions. Which, SURPRISE... aren't housing any of the refugees. At all. But you? You should totally do it.
George Clooney never misses an opportunity to insert his ever-expanding cranium into anything political. It's a wonder he can even fit it through the doorway. He bloviates like his life depends on it (see Dear George Clooney: You Prejudiced, Pompous Dumbass). This time was no exception.
'America has forgotten who we are', Clooney told a group of Syrian families in front of the camera, as the actor and wife Amal revealed their anger at his country's failure to tackle the migrant crisis. 'Being here talking with you is important to remind them of who we are and who we have always been, which is you,' he said.
Forgive me, but I don't see how George Clooney - with a net worth of $180 million - is just like homeless Syrian refugees. Clooney himself owns five mansions that are housing... you guessed it, zero Syrian refugees.
There are legions of arrogant celebrities who all have something to demand Americans do when it comes to current events. Imagine how much they could change if their wallets were attached to their mouths. Or the keyholes of any one of their mansions. Hell, how about the keys to any of their hundreds of cars. It doesn't even have to be the Bugatti. Toss them in the Prius and call it a day. That's proof enough these vapid imbeciles don't truly believe what they're blabbing on about. If Jolie and Clooney banded together with all their "humanitarian" cronies they could donate billions of dollars to a cause of their choice. But they'd rather just not. They'll pass their buck (or millions of their bucks) down the road.
They claim it's America's duty to take care of the refugees. Not their personal duty. They're trying to score feeling points, caring points, without having do actually do anything personally at all.
But hey, they're influential pillars of America. Plus they're pretty in movies. That's all that matters, right? Right?
