Mark Wahlberg: Hollywood Celebrities are Out of Touch and Should Shut Up About Politics

Don’t expect Hollywood megastar Mark Wahlberg to use his fame and fortune to spew politics like many multi-millionaires in the liberal cesspool.

In a recent interview with Task and Purpose, Mark Wahlberg said that many in Hollywood are “living in a bubble” and are “pretty out of touch” with the “real world” and that they should shut up about talking politics all the time.

“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t,” he told Task & Purpose last week, at a swanky luncheon in New York, held on behalf of his upcoming film “Patriots Day.” We were talking about the parade of actors and musicians who lined up to denounce Donald Trump in the months and weeks leading up to Election Day.

“You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway,” he continued. “They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills. A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family. Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.”

Hollywood, which has always been a hotbed for America-hating communists (Ronald Reagan became a Republican when learning in how closely aligned Hollywood Democrats were to communists and many were actually subversives) and it is extremely rare to find someone in Hollywood who is not a radical progressive leftist who doesn’t support politicians with the same destructive views.

While Wahlberg doesn’t reveal his political views — that would make him a hypocrite if he did after telling others to shut up about theirs — it’s refreshing hear someone from Hollywood state the obvious.

Their customers don’t want to hear them spewing their anti-American leftist ideologies or supporting politicians and thinking that they are changing our minds. They are not. A good example is Hillary Clinton, who had a cornucopia of singers, rappers, actors and even NBA Cleveland star LeBron James campaigning for her in Ohio.

Obviously, as Wahlberg alluded to, people are not swayed by Hollywood endorsements, as Hillary painfully learned in states like Ohio, where she unexpectedly got crushed, despite having celebrities like Katy Perry, Lena Dunham, Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z and Beyonce adjoined to her hip.
