Actor Jeff Bridges Plugs ‘The Giver’… with a Warning

Premiere Of Paramount's "Iron Man" - Arrivals“The Giver” is Jeff Bridges’ new movie, and like most Hollywood stars, he is currently devoted to making sure that you know he has a new movie are aware of the full import of the message he’s trying to convey:

That Republicans are dangerous and they could make a comeback… or something.

Big Hollywood:

The upcoming film, based on the challenging children’s book of the same name by Lois Lowry, explores a society where conformity and comfort have taken the place of risk and rewards.

Bridges tells Patheos.com’s Rebecca Cusey that the film’s soft totalitarian mindset is one that could happen today if we’re not careful. …

“I think although the movie takes place in some future time that it is very relective [sic] of our own and there’s a bit of a cautionary tale of how us humans roll and what we’re capable of. And the brutality and the subtleties of our brutality toward each other and also the love and the strength that’s inherent in us. Those times [McCarthyism] that you mention were certainly dark times that we struggled with. Us human beings are still capable of that kind of thing. We need to be on guard for that and look for that. Not numb ourselves to it. Be engaged. One of the biggest challenges for us at this stage, I know for myself, is to not be cynical, you know, throw up our hands. We need to be engaged. [In case you want more Jeff Bridges liberal wisdom]

Jeff Bridges has had a long and fruitful career, and judging from the above interview, there is certainly no evidence that he should have been, say, a schoolteacher or a brain surgeon.

Still, you gotta wonder.

Has he even been on the planet in the last six years?

Barack Obama’s IRS and Justice Department alone make Joe McCarthy look like Jimmy Stewart in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.

Well, since Jeff Bridges is an actor, and a pretty darn good one at that, I suppose we have to indulge his brain farts once in a while. But “brainwashed” and “perpetually stoned” are conditions that come to mind here.

Jeff, Joe McCarthy may have been a drunk or a lot of other things your father, Lloyd Bridges, and the other commies in Hollywood said he was.

But he was also right.

Alger Hiss was a Soviet spy and communists were infiltrating the State Department and other areas in our government.

And, as Ronald Reagan, Elia Kazan and a few other brave actors and directors knew all too well, your father and a whole lot of others in Hollywood were former commies and then-current socialists with anti-American, pro-Soviet sympathies.

They loved that monster Joseph Stalin.

It takes a lot of imagination to ignore facts like those and contrive a world where conservative patriots are dangerous. But, along with English and grammar, Mr. Bridges is obviously also a little slow in history.

Imagination AOK, though.

And what would the world be without clueless liberal actors like Jeff Bridges to play all those weirdoes and strung-out losers we enjoy so much?

    Way too funny! Thank you for nailing it! Jeff is out of his depth here as are so many others. I am very grateful for your encouragement and your work in researching the truth of the McCarthy era.
    Blessings

    Jeff, the totalitarian mindset is that of the Left and the Democrats, not the Right and the Republicans (establishment Republicans excluded since they more often than not side with the Democrats).

    Hollywood is reflectively liberal in politics because not being so costs you gigs.

    It is like a blacklist or something!
