--SNIP-- COVID-19 and Black Lives Matter are helping rational people realize LeBron, Alyssa Milano, Lena Dunham, Steve Kerr, Amy Schumer, Colin Kaepernick, Aaron Paul, CardiB, Meek Mill and Jimmy Kimmel all need to shut up and entertain. Theyre not thought leaders. Theyre court jesters pretending to be world leaders.
Lets defund them. Seriously.
I dont want to eliminate them. I like to be entertained. I just think its a huge mistake to pretend CardiB is important. Shes a stripper-turned-rap music-pornographer. Shes Hugh Hefner, not Michelle Obama with a boobjob.
Lets give entertainers a special designation in our tax codes. Tax their income at 80 to 90 percent. Im serious. Entertainers embrace Marxism and socialism. Lets give them the system they prefer.
Lets take their tax revenue and invest in law enforcement and a criminal justice system focused on rehabilitation. With the extra tax revenue generated from the entertainment industry we could afford to pay and train law enforcement at a higher level. We would attract more qualified police officers. We could take the money from entertainers and dramatically improve how the criminal justice system treats George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks.
I repeat. Im not being sarcastic.
We can call it the Black Lives Matter Tax Initiative funded by the American movie, television, music and sports industries.
Defund Entertainers! Black Lives Matter!

If you need a color
in front of those words,
YOU are a racist!
Problem is....none of those noted are really entertaining.
I say we all defund the cancel culture, woke activism and systemic racism lies in entertainment, government, professional sports, universities and school systems that breed this, and corporations who contribute to these anti American people and organizations. Let the woke snowflakes, the 13 percent and the Hollywood and democratic elites support all this. WE HAVE THE POWER! THE POWER OF THE PURSE! stop watching, stop contributing, stop purchasing
I don’t waste my time watching pro sports or barely conscious celebrities spew hatred for MY country. I get more pleasure in watching the beauty of God’s creation and spectacular sunrises and sunsets. The mind and soul is a terrible thing to waste on nonsensical entertainment.
And, don't forget Fred Armisen's portrayal of David Paterson.
It’s not even about that.
It’s about since they support Black Lives Matter and Marxism so strongly, let’s give them a taste of Marxism. Tax the sports and Hollywood millionaires at 90%. Sounds reasonable to me.
I’m all for this plan as i don’t have to do a damn thing to do my part.
On the surface, this sounds warm and fuzzy. But if you are going to tax one group differently, then there will inevitably a change or creep or whatever based on how the wind blows.
No thanks. 10% tax. 7% fed, 2% state, 1% local. No exemptions. Live with it. This would force the government out of the stuff they do poorly.....taking care of the poor.
Corporate earnings taxed the same.....no exemptions.
I wouldn’t even argue for a corporate tax. Corporations don’t pay taxes. It’s an expense passed on to the consumer.
Friedman estimated that a 17% tax on income for everyone, no exemptions, no exceptions, would be enough to fund gov’t and would not distort the allocation of resources like the current tax code does.
I wouldn't call what they do "entertainment."
I am all for it. They want socialism, let them have it.
Also, if they believe in redistribution of wealth, let’s take their wealth a redistribute it.
Wealthy liberal elites prefer to redistribute my income. They already have wealth so they prefer to redistribute other’s income. Let’s redistribute George Soro’s WEALTH, Bill Bates, Lebron, Kimmel, Warren Buffet, Hillary, etc. They’re not as big on socialism then.
In support of BLM? Why, when they don’t even know basic American History?
"Say I ain't gotta dance/I make money moves!"
And if you’ve ever actually heard Cardi B expound on anything, you would experience a new low watermark of illiteracy among “celebrities. We already know what that culture is as we know she’s still there and functioned as some kind of hip-hop ghetto temporary icon who will get washed away in due time by the tides of “fashion” and replaced by some other just-as-bad idiot.We can only hope with the multiple cross currents now running into each other, and a new beginning in November and lots of PRACTICAL problems being addressed that the lofty status of this idiot subculture will be eroded, and the money flow trickle and finally stop.
CardiB would be a good running-mate for Joe Biden.
