Susan Sarandon Shutup

--posted by Tony Garcia on 5/01/2006

Susan Sarandon is out trying to use sympathy for her cause now.
Film actress Susan Sarandon has revealed how she felt isolated and frightened by death threats and verbal attacks after she criticised US policy in Iraq.

The Thelma & Louise actress, a long-time political activist, said that she was branded a "Bin Laden lover" for questioning the US invasion of Iraq. In an interview to be screened today on ITV1 for Jonathan Dimbleby's programme, she said that the way she and her family had been targeted by the media and the public was "horrifying".

Ms Sarandon, 59, said that she believed there should have been more debate before the war, but anyone who questioned US policy was labelled "un-American".
"I don't think that I ever thought someone would ever really kill me, although there were some people who said, 'I'd like someone to knock her off', on the radio and stuff like that," she said.

"And I don't think that I thought that I'd really never work again. But when there is nobody else, when you look out on the field and everybody is quiet and they're all looking away and nobody's saying anything, it's a really scary place to be."
Susan, shutup.

I have received death threats for SUPPORTING the war. That is the sorry state of politics that the partisans have put us in for the moment. If you don't like it then stay on the sidelines silently...or fight both sides for doing it.

Being labeled "unAmerican"...hmm, is that worse than calling someone "Hitler"? Like I said, if you don't like it then fight it on both sides of the aisle because both sides are creating this type of "discourse". Besides, I think the more accurate term is "Counter-American." You might be patroitic but your positions and actions can be Counter-American...just like the terrorists have rights crowd are counter to the American existance.

You thought you would never work again? Good. The problem with you and your beau (Tim Robbins) is that you have so involved yourselves into rancor discussions of polticial nature that it is hard for people watching your movies to seperate your real persona (political activist) from the persona on the screen. This ruins the movie. Some argue that all of the liberal activist/actors are suffering from that. I say that it cuts both ways...I mean it is hard to watch the Ten Commandments anymore without waiting for Moses to say "you can have my staff when you pry it from my cold dead hands." Personally, I think Sean Penn is one hell of an actor because even through all of his activist crap he can actually make you see someone different on the screen. Tim & Susan, you guys are not talented enough to do that.

When you lose the ability to project different personas on the screen the movie itself suffers. It is for THAT reason your work in Hollywood will be severely diminished. Your talent cannot overcome your activist reality.

Think about it, Susan. If George W Bush decided to take up acting after the White House could you watch that movie and see anything but President Bush? Same thing.

I do not remember very many accusations of un-Americanism. What I remember is the anti-war types saying "Don't call me un-American." when they were being accused of being wrong.

John Kerry said repeatedly that his patriotism was being questioned when it was his credibility that was in question.

Credibility and being wrong on an issue are not the same as Americanism and patriotism, but the MSM was more than happy to use the left's interpretation of the debate.
