If you’ve read FreedomWire for any length of time, you’ll know that I have an aversion to Hollywood culture.
I can’t stand any celebrity who goes out of their way to make a political statement—and that goes for either side, really.
The moment that a movie or TV “star” starts talking politics, it makes me want to vomit. Most of these people tend to live in bubbles that are separate from reality. They wouldn’t know real life if it punched them in the face and listed off their worst-performing box office flops.
Hollywood is fake…
Everything about it—from the sets to the faces to the bodies to the relationships—everything in that industry couldn’t be more fake if it were built in a computer simulation.
That’s why, with the exception of a select few, I look upon any Hollywood type with derision and disgust.
It still baffles me that any of these people would weigh in on politics anyway. Regardless of which side a politically-active celebrity is pulling for, their activism is going to leave at least half of their audience disillusioned and alienated.
That may be why we see so many box office flops as of late.
If you see a movie that was supposed to be big but mysteriously failed, look at the message behind the film or the personal beliefs of actors in it. Odds are, if the movie went all-in on being woke, the film flopped pretty hard.
Want To Stay Relevant? Bash Trump!
It’s a stiff price to pay simply for voicing your opinions and beliefs, but most actors know what they’re getting into.
The worst is when you see some washed up and/or broke actor weighing in on politics. We can see through their ruse, and almost everyone understands that their political statement is nothing more than a pathetic attempt at trying to stay relevant.
Hollywood is run by the Left. There’s no doubt about that, and any Leftist political statement by an actor will win the, favor with the powers that be. At the end of the day, it’s all about putting money in their pockets.
So, it’s easy to see why actors would pander to the Left…
But there are some people who cross the line in their vain attempts at relevancy, and John Cusack may be at the top of the list.
Cusack was big in the 80s and 90s, but throughout the 21st Century, he’s watched his star fall rapidly. He’s gone from the top of the A list down the bottom of the B list.
There is no washed-up actor that tries harder to pander to the Left (except maybe for Alyssa Milano) than John Cusack, and his lack of top-notch scripts is more the likely the big reason why
Recently, though, Cusack crossed the line by comparing Donald Trump, one of the most freedom-loving champions of all time, to Adolf Hitler himself.
It’s not a new comparison, but this crosses the line on so many levels, the biggest of which being that it downplays the ACTUAL evil and atrocities committed by Hitler and his supporters.
By making this comparison, Cusack proves that he’s so unaware that it’s almost laughable.
If Trump’s Like Hitler, What Was Obama? Satan?
Here’s what he actually said about the President…
During an appearance on WTF with Marc Maron podcast, he said, “Hitler sort of stole from the avant-garde Left. He hated the message of the avant-garde Left because it was anti-war, but he understood that politics was the new art and that art and politics were going to be infused. You can see Trump sort of doing the same thing.”
Not even close…
Trump has been one of the least warlike presidents we’ve EVER had, and that’s a fact. Does Cusack not read the newspaper?
But as bad as that is, that wasn’t the part that’ll make you want to flick him in the forehead. This is: “The first time he tore a child away from their mother’s arms and put them in a cage, this wasn’t a reality TV show anymore. This was real fascism.”
Does Cusack not realize that was the policy implemented by Obama? Obama built those cages. Obama was the first to “tear a child away from their mother.”
How is this guy so disconnected from reality?
We shouldn’t be surprised. After all, he’s the guy that tweeted out:
“Trump is basically a test run for true evil: the antichrist for dummies – The gods saying We’re going to give you a version so obvious with such Unimaginable Stupidity & abject cretinism & sloth – to show how decadent & empty yr culture & institutions have become – change”

But it still shocks us at how unaware these people really are.
What’s worse, people listen to them…
Makes you want to launch the whole lot of them into orbit.
If John Cusack makes another movie, you can bet I won’t be watching…
He’s turned me off as a fan and I’d rather watch my cat bat around dryer sheet.
“People try to keep their past, like kind of holding on to their past. Every Springsteen song talks about that.” – John Cusack
