The message is meant to encourage the “dear members of Congress,” the entertainers say, to “vigorously oppose” Trump’s “racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, anti-worker, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic, anti-environmental policies.”
“The majority of Americans, regardless of who they voted for, did not vote for racism, for sexism, or for xenophobia. And yet, Donald Trump won,” the various stars recite.
Supporters are asked to spread the video on social media and sign a petition posted on the left-wing website MoveOn.org.
“We won’t remain silent. We’ll work harder to mobilize our votes, and our communities. But we need you and expect you to have our backs,” the stars and activists say.
It’s the first celebrity-filled political PSA of the year, after a number of similar videos were released in the run-up to November’s presidential election.
- Stop trying to speak for me.
- Stop trying to speak for all Americans.
- Shut up and entertain me.
- Stop spreading hate, lies, and fake news.
- Go memorize some lines or something and leave the politics to the grown ups.
I guess they couldn’t get any good celebrities to do this this time. I only knew who about two or three of these people are.
