Meryl Streep and Ignorance

Meryl Streep, a great actress and an imbecile spent her night getting an award and saying she is afraid of Trump. The people on the coasts do not understand why Trump was elected. The privileged are concerned with these four issues, Xenophobia, Sexism, Racism and Homophobia. What they do not understand is simple, it is what effects most people, jobs, food, shelter and affection.  They do not understand Maslow and his rules. They explain priorities and when you have all your needs taken care of, your priorities change. These imbeciles cannot understand that because they have no needs and only think about themselves and causes that don't effect them. People don't want welfare, they want to be able to make enough to care for themselves; but, there are not that many good jobs to go around so we play musical chairs.

Bazaar - Here's the Full Transcript of Meryl Streep's Powerful Golden Globes Speech.

A couple of lines from her speech. "You and all of us in this room, really, belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it. Hollywood, foreigners, and the press." When multi-millionaires and the Hollywood elite start claiming that they are the most vilified people in America you have to really scratch your head. How out of touch with normal life are these people? Here is another line, "Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. If you kick 'em all out, you'll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts." The stupidity of her statement is mind boggling. Lets start with the most obvious which is people working in Hollywood are here legally and have visas. NOBODY is talking about legal immigrants being sent anywhere.

A lot of people are saying that she shouldn't have gotten political, I disagree, she is entitled to say what she wishes. I am more interested in why she felt so "passionate" and seems incapable of figuring out why people voted for Trump.  Why does she believe that Trump wants to throw out all foreigners when his own wife is one. Why do so many believe that Trump is anti-Semitic when his own daughter and son in law are Jewish? The answer is that she lives in a bubble of thought. She attends parties with other wealthy people in the arts where they discuss politics from the same limited perspective. The tragedies that have hit the manufacturing industry in the Midwest do not effect her.  This is what happens when you have increased social and economic inequality, you only see what is around you. I personally don't believe she is evil, I think she is ignorant and incapable of true empathy for the people who have lost their towns, their industry and were abandoned by the Democratic party.
