Would Elite Hollywood Celebrities Sing “God Bless America” Today?

(Jan. 18, 2017) — Since April 30, 1789, when George Washington was inaugurated in New York City as the first President of the Republic, there have been 57 peaceful celebrations of the inaugurations of the President of the United States.  Over 228 years, the 57 inaugurations have never been about the man or his campaign; the celebration of the inauguration has always been about the “peaceful” transition of the “office.”

Today, of the 535 members of the US Congress, close to 70 Democrat members of Congress are Socialists, Leftists, Progressives, and fellow travelers with the Communist Party USA and the Muslim Brotherhood (an International Terrorist organization).  As of today, 60 Democratic drama-queen members of Congress, many in the group of 70 previously referred to, have refused to attend the inauguration and have been trying to delegitimize the election of President Donald J. Trump, who received 306 votes of the Electoral College.

Two of the 60 members of Congress who will not be attending the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump, Rep. John Lewis (D-GA-5), and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA-43), also boycotted the inauguration of President George W. Bush in 2001 because they stated he was also not the legitimate U.S. President.  Rep. Lewis recently stated, “I do not see the President-Elect as a legitimate President.”  President Jimmy Carter, President Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush, President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, the Supreme Court, and every U.S. Senator will attend the inauguration and support the peaceful transition of the Office of the President of the United States on January 20, 2017.

A group in hysteria, calling themselves the Anti-Fascist Coalition, consisting of Leftists, Progressives, Socialists, Anarchists, Communists, members of the Muslim Brotherhood front groups, and TV network hosts (CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, and ABC) will support demonstrations to disrupt the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump.  The coalition is being led by Michael Moore, funded by George Soros (who is covering the cost of 12,000 buses for the transportation of paid radical and violent demonstrators to Washington, DC from across the nation), and demonstrations will be supported by 60 Democrat members of Congress boycotting the inauguration.   The coalition includes, but is not limited to, members of the following groups who will be demonstrating:

The elite Hollywood leftist out-of-touch members of the Screen Actors Guild, the left-of-center liberal media establishment, Black Lives Matter, the Communist Party USA, the Marxist-Leninist Communist Workers Party’s front, “ANSWER” funded by Soros, the Communist Party “Progress Unity Fund,” the Muslim Brotherhood, CAIR, Arab American Association, Muslim Community Network, the Nation of Islam, Muslim Advocates, George Soros’s Pro-Communist organization “Open Society Foundation,” Al Sharpton’s “National Action Network,” Moveon.org, the Tides Foundation, Planned Parenthood, National Organization for Women, La Raza, Black Alliance for Justice Immigration, Amnesty International, American Federation of Teachers, American Civil Liberties Union, the Weatherman Underground, the New Black Panther Party, CodePink, SEIU, AFL-CIO, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance, Sierra Club, NAACP, League of Women Voters, American Association of University Professors, and too many other radical leftist groups to list here.

Following the election of President Donald J. Trump, the meltdown and hysteria by the elite Hollywood leftist members of the Screen Actors Guild was utterly predictable.  It was driven home on national television, for all Americans to see, at the Golden Globe Award Ceremony in a wholly inappropriate speech by Meryl Streep attacking President-Elect Trump following her acceptance of her Golden Globe.  Streep had introduced Hillary Clinton at the Democrat National Convention and strongly campaigned for Hillary’s election.

Collectively, the Hollywood establishment has threatened any entertainer who agreed to perform at the inauguration of the 45th U.S. President with the loss of work, and some entertainers indicated that they were threatened with bodily harm.  Many Hollywood celebrities will be participating in demonstrations in Washington, DC trying to disrupt the inauguration of President Donald J. Trump such as Michael Moore, Katy Perry, Scarlett Johansson, Amy Schumer, Rachel Wood, Frances McDormand, America Ferreira, Chesen Handler, Lena Dunham, Diane Guerra, Juliana Moore, Patricia Arquette, Debra Messing, etc.

Other Hollywood celebrities such as Rosie O’Donnell, Miley Cyrus, Bette Midler, Cher, Susan Sarandon, Sarah Silverman, Lee Daniels, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Stiller, Samuel Jackson, Johnny Depp, Richard Gere, George Clooney, etc. have been questioning the legitimacy of the election of President Donald J. Trump with no basis in fact and have been trying to divide the country instead of bringing the nation together.

The reader is encouraged to compare the elite Hollywood leftist members of the Screen Actors Guild with the patriotic Hollywood celebrities of 46 years ago.  By clicking on the below listed link, you will be able to view a very special short video of a John-Wayne-produced Patriotic Variety Special.  It reveals that there was actually a time in U.S. history when most Hollywood celebrities were true “Patriotic Americans.”

Hollywood celebrities in the past defended the U.S. Constitution, supported hardworking Conservative Middle American workers, rejected the liberal philosophy that belittles Judeo/Christian religious beliefs today, supported teaching the Founding Fathers’ beliefs in U.S. History courses in grammar and high schools, were unashamed to sing “God Bless America,” and did not believes in the destructive Anti-American “leftist progressives philosophy” in Hollywood today that has been dividing Americans by race, gender, income, and religion.


How different and out-of-touch Hollywood celebrities are today than they once were when the above video was recorded.  Today’s elite Hollywood leftist celebrities are rejecting the peaceful transition of government from the Obama administration to the Trump administration even though President Clinton, President Obama, and Hillary Clinton are supporting and encouraging it.  Would the elite Hollywood leftist celebrities be willing to sing ‘God Bless America” today?

Over the last year, and especially since the election of President-Elect Trump, the silent majority of Americans have been observing the elite Hollywood leftists’ Anti-American comments.  The majority of Americans don’t really care what the elite Hollywood leftists think; they voted for their own choice of President, and in the future will register their opinion of individuals like Meryl Streep at the box office.
