Hollywood Hysteria over Paris Climate Accord


Immediately after President Donald Trump announced his decision to exit the Paris climate accord, Hollywood’s “geopolitical experts” flooded the media landscape with their madcap predictions and negative prattle.

The action taken by the president should not really have come as a surprise to anyone who is even mildly aware of politics and culture, whether he or she resides on the left, right, or center of the climate change spectrum.

After all, during the election cycle the president, who in his short time in office has already made good on a number of campaign promises, also explicitly said that once elected he would pull out of the accord, due its fundamental unfairness to the United States.

100 Days of Protest Theater


Another day, another protest. Over the past weekend various left-wing groups coalesced to make their way down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. for what organizers dubbed “The People’s Climate March.”

Counted among the activist crowds were two of the more well known leftist faces, Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio and former Vice President Al Gore.

As is emblematic of these types of events, a few hundred related marches and/or rallies were staged around the country. Lurking behind the protest events was left-wing billionaire and ubiquitous donor to subversive organizations George Soros.

Hollywood`s Attempt to Thwart GOP Midterm Victory

Hollywood has been in full support mode of the Democrats in their efforts to hang onto political power following the midterm elections.

Using Internet videos, celebrity endorsements, financial contributions, and power-packed fundraising events, entertainment figures have been key players in Democrat campaigns across the nation.

Hollywood is masterful when it comes to content creation, and one of the primary ways entertainment industry activists are able to contribute to the campaigns of their choice is through assisting in the design and production of video footage. Video of this type has the potential to be exponential in its attention-attracting payoff, particularly if it should go viral on the Internet.

YouTube Stars More Popular than Hollywood Celebs

Hollywood can’t help but take notice of the power and creativity that is being displayed on YouTube.

Tinseltown shows its fondness at times for the social media video website. In March of 2014, Disney acquired Maker Studios, a highly successful YouTube multichannel network, for $500 million. And in 2013, DreamWorks Animation purchased a YouTube channel, AwesomenessTV, for $33 million. Warner Bros. also bought a stake in a videogame oriented YouTube multichannel network, Machinima, for $18 million.
