Swinton Attacks Hollywood Studios' Right-Wing Politics

Here’s another brilliant example, thanks to Michelle Malkin, of celebrities pretending to be politicians with little, if any, success. Tilda Swinton who portrayed the archangel Gabriel in Constantine and the White Witch in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, both highly Christian-themed films, last year, lashed out at Hollywood’s ‘right-wing politics’. Are we talking about the same Hollywood who nominated four films for Best Picture at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony with left-wing political messages?

Here are some of her comments:

“I love the idea of goose-stepping old Walt D making over $700m with the help of a Red Witch. He is more than welcome”
Oh, she better be glad her character was killed off in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe or else not only would she have the Disney lawyers so far up her ass she’d have them coming out of her nose but she’d be out of a lucrative job as well. And what’s with the ‘Red Witch’ comment? Well, according to Malkin, she’s still a British Communist at heart. Ah, isn’t that sweet?! She forgets though that she’s making money off the back of a capitalist system she despises. Hypocrisy anyone?! Sounds vaguely like Michael Moore, doesn’t it?

And here's a real gem ...

“At least we made her whiter than white, the ultimate white supremacist, and we managed to railroad the knee-jerk attempt to make her look like an Arab”
But she’s not racist, Heavens no!
