This isn’t about George Clooney the actor, writer or director. It is about George Clooney the political activist. Therefore, this is the political truth about George Clooney.
Clooney is one of the most popular actors in the world, virtually worshiped by many women. As tends to be the case with Hollywood people with any recognizability, they want to virtue signal their political affiliations and social ideals to the popular culture masses who think that what Hollywood millionaires have to say about the world reflects any kind of real-life, real-world knowledge and experience.
In reality, many such celebrities who are exhibitionistic with their opinions on matters other than their own trade, clearly suffer from a large amount of self-importance, otherwise known as narcissism. They live in bubbles and generally cannot stand criticism. They live in a sector of society the large majority has no access to. Therefore celebrities tend not to be faced with what i’d like to call Real People. They think that what they have to say about politics is in some way more informed or reason-based than what any run of the mill plumber has to say. Even though we are speaking of entertainers, not rocket scientists. They are wealthy not because they are smart, but because their jobs have a market value greater than many other jobs. Their specific talent (to entertain) is in larger demand than many other talents. This makes corporations more willing to pay them a very high salary. It also makes them popular among the masses. Well written scripts make them sound any way that is intended, including intelligent.
Because of all of this, many gullible people may make the mistake of confusing entertainers with well-informed or intelligent people even though many of them didn’t even finish high school, much less went to college. They are seen with political candidates not because politicians care about them as people, but because celebrities donate lots of cash to their causes and campaigns. Without that, they’d have as much chance being on the same podium with presidents as sewer treatment plant workers would.
In this phenomenon of celebrity political activism and virtue signaling, George Clooney is one of the more pervasive specimens. Trying to lend his meaningless platitudes credibility with sure sounding proclamations and his patented smugness and smirks, he throws himself into the mix that a stupid blind man does jumping into an empty swimming pool.
