Celebrities Call For ‘Total Hollywood Strike’ Until Trump Resigns

A group of liberal Hollywood celebrities are threatening a “massive, all-round Hollywood strike” unless Donald Trump resigns. Describing Hollywood as “the base of the entire modern American culture“, the group also claims to be speaking on behalf of “all of humanity.”

It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around“, a spokesperson for the group told The New York Times.

“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops.”

Spinzon reports: Rosie O’Donnell, Debra Messing, Ed Asner and Michael Shannon are among the dozens of artists, entertainers, and activists who have attached their names to an effort calling for a month-long protest to stop President-elect Donald Trump.

“No! In the Name of Humanity We Refuse to Accept a Fascist America!” reads a full-page ad placed in the New York Times on Wednesday by the group Refuse Racism. “Donald Trump, the President-elect, is assembling a regime of grave danger,” the ad says.

“Millions of people in the US and around the world are filled with deep anxiety, fear and disgust. Our anguish is right and just. Our anger must now become massive resistance – before Donald Trump is inaugurated and has the full reins of power in his hands.”

Other Hollywood celebrities who have also joined the campaign, however, are calling for an all-out strike that would span the entire movie industry in the hopes that such a move would urge the President-elect to resign from his position as the newly elected President of the United States.

“We’re calling for a general strike that would include every single person involved in making motion pictures in Hollywood, starting with the actors and celebrities themselves and encompassing companies in charge of making props, movie memorabilia and even souvenir shops,” a spokesperson for the Refuse Racism group told The New York Times. “It’s about time people understood that we’re the ones with the power and that the president is there to serve us, not the other way around.”

Asked to elaborate on why the group is targeting Hollywood out of all the industries in the country as their bargaining chip, the spokesperson argued that Hollywood “is, simply put, the base of the entire modern American culture. It is the foundation of the country, so to speak, the glue that’s holding it together. And think about what happens when you destroy the foundation of a house. It comes crashing down, right? Well, that’s exactly what’s going to happen to America unless Donald Trump realizes how real the danger of that actually is, and chooses to step down as President of his own free will. And while we’re on the subject, between you and me – nobody wants Hollywood to stop doing its thing, but this is a necessary move.”

“Besides, it’s not like the billionaire-businessman-turned-president hasn’t ventured into movies in his day, right? So, he’ll understand firsthand what’s going to happen if Hollywood goes to strike. Without the work of Hollywood and the lifestyle promoted by it, there will literally be no more America to rule for Trump. So, in effect, it’s not us that are going to force Donald Trump to resign his office; it’s the people of America who are going to make him do it, because the God’s honest truth is – without Hollywood, there is no America. It’s like trying to run Nazi Germany without Hitler at the forefront – it just becomes pointless,” the spokesperson concluded.

    Did you see in the picture at the start of this article…. Rosie O has a bad 5 o’clock shadow…. is she a she or a ? I don’t know maybe we should ask Mrs. Obama…..lol

  • Alex Bjorkquist

    Have they lost their brains? I truly believe we can do without Hollywood and all of their stupidity! It’s time for the American people to go into a different direction for their entertainment, called family????

  • Roy Jackson

    I hope they do go on strike…

  • Glenn Festog

    So millionaire actors/actresses will boycott making movies? And all of the regulars, people living paycheck to paycheck, will jump on that bandwagon too? Yeah, right.

    Tell you what America, if you want REAL entertainment, put your dollars towards investigating these “stars” and putting their ENTIRE lives under extreme focus, instead of waiting for the next “wardrobe malfunction”. lol Hey Streep, here’s a clue; you know all those current news stories about Cary Grant, Annette Funicelo, Lauren Bacall? Once you’re dead (in Hollywood) you lose all relevance, they’ll be talking about Trump long after you’re ash.

    Figure it out…….

  • Debi Quilts Rodriguez

    Keep up the pressure! We the people must be heard!

  • JayH

    I’m thinking the Conservative celebrities would not participate, and not mind helping new conservative minded talent in the door. They would help progressive minded talent too, if they were interested in defying the protest. :)
    Sound’s like a WIN all around! I’m for it!

  • czarangelus

    Did – did those Hollywood retards really just compare themselves to Hitler?

  • Harvey Mitterdorf

    Are these people totally insane? Fighting paper dragons.

  • Dianna Lavoie Miller

    So stupid. There is so much more to life than watching a bunch of overpaid actors. Who cares? Please go on strike. Maybe families will start doing outdoor things together such as kayaking or hiking. I feel bad for the people who do watch you and do care because you obviously don’t care about them or anything else.

    Dear
    Hollywood,

    You exist for my entertainment. Some of you are great eye candy. Some of you can
    deliver a line with such conviction that you bring tears to my eyes. Some of
    you can scare the crap out of me. Some make me laugh. Some can’t act their way
    out of a wet paper bag. But you all have one thing in common, you only exist in
    my world to entertain me. That’s it. You make your living pretending to be
    someone else. Playing dress up like a 6 year old. You live in a make believe
    world in front of a camera. At times when you are away from one too. Your
    entire existence depends on my patronage. I’ll crank the organ grinder; you
    dance. I don’t care where you stand on issues. Your stance matters less to me
    than that of my neighbor. You see, you aren’t real. I turn off my TV or shut
    down my computer and you cease to exist in my world. Once I am done with you, I
    can put you back in your little box until I want you to entertain me again. I
    don’t care that you don’t like Mr.Trump. So I’m supposed to care that you will
    leave this great country if Trump becomes president? Ha. Please don’t forget to
    close the door behind you. I’d like to reserve your seat for someone who loves
    this country and really wants to be here. Make me laugh, or cry. Scare me. Bore
    me. But realize that the only words of yours that matter are scripted. In my
    world, you exist solely for my entertainment. So, shut your pie hole and
    entertain me with your scripted words.

  • Hey Blue

    Oh please by all means DO IT! Hollywood as the center of American culture. That’s hilarious. Don’t just stop for a month, grow a pair and stop until he resigns. Then try to pick up your careers after 4 years.

    • flang1

      Make that 8 years !!

  • BonnieJ

    This is satire, right?

    So…the people who said they would leave if Trump won are now throwing temper tantrums and tossing their collective toys out of the pram. You threatened to leave, you didn’t leave. Now you threaten a strike? Well, go ahead. That will open the doors for talent that is not part of your elitist club and will see new talent in movies. Go ahead, strike. It didn’t work for US baseball decades ago, it won’t work for you.

  • Tina Puls

    If they don’t like it they can leave. Who wants to put up with a bunch of cry babies that don’t know what they are crying about. Our asses would have been handed to us if anyone else were to take office namely that broad Clinton. We would be facing the real threat of nuclear war had she stolen the seat.

  • New World Patriot

    If you “stars” want to strike, more power to you. However, I strongly suggest you personally pay the salaries of the millions of entertainment “workers” that put in an honest days work for an honest days pay and have made you the “stars” you are today.

    Also understand, half of this country voted for Donald Trump as opposed to Hillary Clinton. So, do not be surprised if your paying audience is reduced by 50% upon your return from your strike.

    • john

      These spoiled, pampered, arrogant asses don’t care who get hurts in the process, like the common workers on the sets etc. I don’t believe they will strike once the realize their pay Is not coming in.

  • flang1

    Talk about head up your ass. Hollyweird just doesn’t get it. What a joke, center of the American culture. Are they F..n delusional?

  • mldavis254

    I will miss Michael Shannon’s work. But to be honest I find a lot of the work coming out of Canada and Russia at least equal to ,if not actually better than, most of the Hollywood crap. But then without Rosie O’Donnell, Debra Messing, and Ed Asner I’m sure Hollywood will simply die… LMAO

  • john

    WOW !!!! Who do you liberals think you are. Who do you think you are going to hurt. Let me give you a news flash. Strike, I don’t care!!! Just remember when you don’t film you don’t get paid. Have you really thought this trough. I think not, I think you are a spoiled pompous, arrogant ass, who is over paid for doing nothing. YOU DON’T SPEAK FOR ME!!! I like Donald Trump and I am happy he won the Presidency. So strike away and make sure you post the list of all the strikers so I can be sure to not support you and your movies.
