Leftists cater to celebrities. Because leftists value appearances over substance.
And the blind faith people are willing to throw at someone just because they’re famous is downright scary.
Especially now that leftists are using George Floyd’s death to push their extreme social agenda. However, in the two weeks since Floyd’s death, celebrities have been opening their checkbooks right and left to throw money behind what they’ve termed “social justice reform.”
Of course, the more appropriate term would be “domestic terrorism.” And it’s a crying shame that the elites among us want to spread violence and hatred in the wake of such a tragic death.
As Kevin Jackson recently pointed out:
“The death of Floyd is a reason for all Americans to galvanize. We want answers when our public servants’ blatantly disregard human life.”
[This senseless act] created almost universal outrage. So when practically the entire country agrees that Minneapolis police acted badly, why riot? Because leftists see opportunity in “crisis”. And they always try to take advantage of it.
Thus it’s no surprise to find the famous folks jumping on the bandwagon. And not only are they giving their millions to these radical groups such as Black Lives Matter, but they’re encouraging their followers to do the same.
Sadly, leftists are quick to get behind any scheme as long as they think they’re fighting against Donald Trump.
As Breitbart points out:
Some celebrities are donating to controversial bail funds like the Minnesota Freedom Fund that seek to bail out protestors and rioters. Members of Joe Biden’s presidential campaign have also donated to the Minnesota Freedom Fund.

While $113M might seem impressive, let’s not forget where the real brand power comes from. Conservatives have long been able to put their buying power together for any noteworthy cause. Which is one of the many reasons conservatives and Donald Trump are like peanut butter and jelly. They’re both good, but together, it’s an incredible combination.
Shortly after the 2016 election, conservatives were called upon to restore order. I recall when Macy’s announced they were dumping the Trump line of suits in an effort to avoid political polarization. Meanwhile, they put their money behind Hillary. Less than a year later, they closed 68 stores. Coincidence? Of course not. Those were conservative dollars at work. And by work, I mean boycotting.
Both Starbucks and Keurig suffered similar fates. Meanwhile, corporations on the right such as Chik-Fil-A and Hobby Lobby reap the benefits of staying true to their moral compasses and conservative values. And while corporate America isn’t the same thing as “social justice,” it does illustrate the power conservatives have to chart the course ahead.
Leftists will keep pouring their dollars into these organizations that do nothing but deepen the divide and terrorize our country. But it won’t be money well-spent. Because Donald Trump is still steering this ship. Enough said.
