Conservative Americans have certainly had their fair share of problems with Hollywood and their political pontification.
The hard left slant of Tinsel Town has been a sore spot in U.S. culture in recent years, especially now that Donald Trump has taken up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
In the last 8 months, we have been witness to a number of hellacious attacks on the President and his supporters emanating from the southern California wasteland, including some of the most vile and reprehensible pieces of progressive propaganda ever publicly released. Kathy Griffin’s ISIS beheading stunt, Snoop Dogg’s assassination themed music video, and Johnny Depp’s unfunny joke about murdering the Commander in Chief are just a few of the horrendous left-leaning attacks on the President that we have been forced to endure.
Today, however, we look beyond all of that to appreciate what Hollywood can do when they set aside their hatred and bigotry against America’s right.
“As the Texas coastline struggles to rebound from Hurricane Harvey, celebrities are lining up to donate their own money to help in the relief effort, even though some of them may disagree with Texas’ Republican roots.
“Sandra Bullock, who won an Academy Award for her role in The Blind Side, gave $1 million to Houston relief efforts — a cause she says should bring political opponents together. ‘There are no politics in eight feet of water. There are human beings in eight feet of water.’
“The Kardashian clan, who are not known to be the most generous of people, gave $500,000 split between the Salvation Army and the Red Cross. ‘We have been watching the heartbreaking footage of the catastrophic flooding in Houston,’ Kris Jenner, the clan matriarch, said on Twitter. ‘Our hearts go out to the people of Texas.’
“Jennifer Lopez and boyfriend Alex Rodriguez donated $50,000.
“Comedian Kevin Hart may have donated $25,000 to the Red Cross (at least initially) but the star can count perhaps millions of dollars in pledges to the Texas relief effort. After announcing his contribution on Instagram, Hart kicked off a Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge, asking some of his big-name friends to match or exceed his donation to the cause.”
We have to give credit where credit is due, and no one is more due for a little help than those affected by Hurricane Harvey.
There are plenty more giving back to the Texas community in this time of need, including pop star Beyonce, country artists Chris Young and Lady Antebellum, as well as hip hop and R&B superstars Chris Brown and DJ Khaled.
