No One Has Any Patience for Susan Sarandon's Fair-Weather Protest Hypocrisy

No One Has Any Patience for Susan Sarandon’s Fair-Weather Protest Hypocrisy
by Vivian Kane | 8:25 am, June 29th, 2018

Oh hey, it’s been a while since we’ve talked about Susan Sarandon. It’s been some time since she credited the Trump presidency for giving us “a populace that is awake” (as if much of the populace didn’t need a racist, xenophobic, antisemitic, misogynistic administration to be “awake”), since she praised the “energized” revolution brought on by the complicit Jill Stein voters like herself, or since she seriously didn’t recognize the hypocrisy in giving interviews about the merits of socialism and voting via one’s conscience (read: that “identity politics” thing rich white people don’t seem to think applies to them) from elite, lush, private members-only Manhattan clubs.


Susan Sarandon didn’t cause Trump’s election. But she was a prominent, high-profile voice fighting his opposition. Her concerns about Hillary Clinton (namely her lack of vocal opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline) were valid, but Sarandon placed her objections to specific aspects of Clinton’s campaign above so much else, so many issues we’re now fighting. From Trump’s immigration policies to his ability to change the ideology of the Supreme Court in a way that severely jeopardizes the preservation of Roe v. Wade, none of which are new fears–they were all visible on the election trail. So sure, Susan Sarandon is allowed to protest. But we are all allowed to call her a hypocritical asshole making use of her privilege to decide which issues she feels like protesting and when.

Tomorrow is my Congressional primary

I live in the 11th District in NYC. The district covers all of Staten Island and part of Brooklyn. Here is more about the district: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York%27s_11th_congressional_district

Our current Rep. is Dan Donovan, who votes with the Dems a lot. He is being challenged by our former Rep., convicted felon Michael Grimm.

There are several Dems on the ballot which tells me that the party thinks the district can be flipped. The primary candidates are:
Michael DeVito Jr.
Zach Emig
Radhakrishna Mohan
Max Rose
Paul Sperling
Omar Vaid

Here is more about them: https://drive.google.com/file/d/13SATcx3OMKwrM8BIjlSQ2cifnuz6sWyX/view

I have already decided on one candidate based on his positions, background and demographic fit for the district, but want DU to give me a reality check in case I missed something.

Looking forward to hearing from everyone. Thanks,

Remember back in 15 & 16 when the New York Times,

Washington Post, CNN, MSNBC and the rest of the "liberal media" told us that Hillary Clinton's emails was the worst thing a public official had ever done in history.

I hope Jill Stein voters are proud of themselves

Along with all others on the left who refused to compromise their principles to vote for Clinton because she wasn’t pure enough for them. They are responsible for what is happening to the children as every Trump voter.
