Dissent may be the highest form of patriotism (when the GOP has power, anyway) but circulating nasty drawings of political opponents has to be the lowest form of dissent. And thats what the lefts giant temper tantrum has come down to.
According to LA Weekly, illustrators from studios including Disney, Sony, Nickelodeon and DreamWorks have gotten together to collaborate on the picture book Not My President. A crowdfunding campaign is in progress, and proceeds will support the ACLU, Planned Parenthood and L.A. Justice Fund.
The drawings are all too predictable: Trump as Fascist, Trump as diaper-clad infant, Trump supporters as racists. This is not high-brow political commentary. In fact, the article describes it as a childrens book for adults. Of course, take adult for what its worth.
Truth is, whatever you think of Trump, juvenilia like this aint about him. Check out this explanation from the projects creative recruiter, Alison Mann:
I was really feeling demoralized and angry about what was happening in our country, and I wanted to channel my energy into something positive. One day I was sitting at home with my husband and our twin babies reading a bunch of different children's books of all shapes and sizes, and thought of a protest book for adults inspired by colorful board books for children. From there I shared my idea with a couple of like-minded friends, Kristine Eckert and Stephanie Perea, who I was hoping would love the idea and want to collaborate on the project. They were both excited about the idea and jumped onboard. [emphasis added]
Its all about the feelz, gang. Highchair pounding never felt so high-minded.
Another artist on the book thinks it's incumbent on creatives to use their talents to resist the Trump agenda, whatever that really is.
As far as feeling vulnerable, I think that we do feel particularly vulnerable. While I am a U.S. citizen, a lot of my peers in studios are working here on visas, and are very troubled about the prospect of having to leave their careers, friends and livelihoods, she says.
Yup, trumps coming for your French makeup artist, and your Irish set-designer, and maybe the quaint Italian guy that runs catering. Further, if unions are broken up and the [Affordable Care Act] is repealed without a replacement, I really don't know what I will do about health insurance. Trumps a union buster? Wow, somebody might want to tell these guys. And please, talk some more about how tough life is in Hollywood.
Yes, these people are selfish and stupid -- nearly as stupid as the question LA Weeklys Gwyned Stuart asked: whether they fear they'll face retribution from their studios for working on something so overtly political. Spoiler: they didnt.
getting really sock of this crap, personal boycott going on for ALL of them.
Projection and propaganda from temper tantrum throwing red diaper doper babies. FUHollyweird scumbags.
These are the lunatics and those like them that are getting innocent people killed.
Not my playpen!
“These are the lunatics and those like them that are getting innocent people killed.”
That’s true. And then it will come right back at them because there’s no way there won’t be a response in kind.

Then she said "The hell with that, lets just attack President Trump some more."
Meanwhile Target reports losses of $10B after they install transgender bathrooms that allows men to look at young children and women where they are unprotected. It matters not if the men could be lying about their sexuality. All that matters is that the LGBT crowd gets special priveleges so Target can say they're being "inclusive". J. C. Penney's goes LGBT and hires Ellen DeGeneres as their spokesperson; sales tank and they almost lose their shirts. Do the leftist companies really think they can expect to turn a profit by catering to a small percentage of the population that is known for its unsafe sexual practices, perversity, and pronounced attraction to young children? It makes absolutely no sense but hey if they want to take themselves out and leave us with better choices that works for me. As far as I'm concerned they can go ahead and close their doors because the majority of Americans aren't going to set foot in their stores anytime soon, if ever, again.
I installed KODI with the exodus add on to my Amazon fire stick. I now watch any movie for free any time. ANY movie.
Starve the beast! And I will still pay to see good movies like Mark Wallberg’s.
Not my movie studios!
