Oh boy… here comes Hollywood again to tell us how we ought to feel and think about the world.
Austrian-German actor Christoph Waltz has a piece of advice for President Donald Trump if the country wants to get back on the right track: “Go away.”
The two-time Oscar-winning Django Unchained star, who holds dual Austrian and German citizenship, told TMZ this week that he believes the United States is headed in a downward direction.
But the actor added that the country could yet recover: “Absolutely. That’s the fabulous quality of this society.”
When asked by TMZ what advice he’d give the president, Waltz only said: “Go away.”
The Vienna-born actor — who won Oscar gold for his roles as the ruthless Nazi killer Col. Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds, and for playing the Civil War-era bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz in the director’s Django Unchained — has mostly avoided discussing U.S. presidential politics over much of the 2016 campaign.
Last summer, he criticized Britain’s exit from the European Union last year as “one of the silliest, most infantile things on earth.”
“It’s like handing someone a gun and telling them to shoot themself in the knee,” the actor told the Evening Standard last year of Brexit.
In a German-language interview with Austrian TV program Zib News in November, Waltz said Trump should not be allowed a grace period to see which of the policies and proposals he discussed on the campaign trail he might pursue.
“You can’t unsay what has been said,” Waltz said on the show, according to a translation by The Independent.
“Obama himself said in the meeting with Trump: We have to work on Trump feeling welcome, and if Trump is successful, the whole country is successful,” he added. “Really? If Trump is successful with what he announced during his campaign, it’s the end of the line.”
This one stings, because I truly liked Christophe’s previous work. He makes a wonderful villain. I guess now we know why.
Might I add the obvious? “Go away” is not an argument. Saying that the country would recover from the God-Emperor’s reign is not an argument. “You can’t unsay what has been said” is not an agument. “It’s the end of the line” is not an argument.
The virtue signaling might be strong with Christophe, but common sense isn’t. Just this morning a poll showed that 55% of the U.S. favor the God-Emperor’s recent stop on refugees (which are truly nothing but economic migrants as 92% of recent refugees cases have been proven fraudulent) entering the country from nations with a high rate of Islamic terrorism. Countries that were chosen by the Obama administration prior to the God-Emperor’s ascent to the cherry blossom throne. There’s also growing unfavorability of Muslim immigration spreading throughout Europe as white Europeans are fleeing their hometowns and feeling increasingly like minorities. Their politicians tell them that being a minority is good for them as the rape epidemic increases in exact tandem with the amount of refugees brought in.
The only way to send a clear message to Hollywood that we don’t give a shit about their political opinions or their lack of empathy toward the right is with our box office dollars. You might have sent a strong virtue signal to Hollywood, Christophe… but those who actually go see your films might not take kindly to it. Your choice. Your funeral.
