We had a coincidental visitor over the past week- Robert Redford had been filming something next to the VAG, and he stepped over to share a message with us. His message was simple: Can you guys shut up for the next hour and a half so I can film something here?
Now, if you check out Wikipedia’s entry on Mr. Redford’s Political Activity you’ll read the following:
“Redford is politically liberal, and has supported environmentalism, Native American rights, and the arts…..has been a vocal critic of Barack Obama for his lack of follow through on environmental policies. He wrote, “One reason I supported President Obama is because he said we must protect clean air, water and lands. But what good is it to say the right thing unless you act on it?”
Wow! That’s quite the resume! So, what the hell happened? Why didn’t he ask for a Mic Check, wave over the media, and make a statement backing the Occupy movement? Why didn’t he use his star power to give power to the people?
Why? Because he was filming a commercial enterprise on behalf of the propaganda arm of the 1%! That’s why!
Robert Redford, you are a hack- Butch Cassidy would have bitch-slapped you if he was watching! More evidence that the Hollywood intelligentsia are a complete waste of our movement’s time.
From now on, when I think of Mr. Redford, I will call him : “The Horses’ Ass Whisperer”
