THIS GUY GETS IT! “A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, with the everyday guy out there providing for their family.” -Mark Wahlberg, a couple weeks ago when he urged actors not to talk about politics.

Meryl Streep should take Mark Wahlberg’s advice: Celebrities need to shut up about politics

In a world full of Lena Dunhams, Amy Schumers, and Katy Perrys who spout off their opinion on everything from politics to the patriarchy, it’s refreshing to have someone like Mark Wahlberg.

During a luncheon to promote his new film Patriot’s Day, the actor was asked if he talked about politics. “No,” said the former rapper and that other celebrities shouldn’t either, reported the website Task and Purpose on Tuesday.

“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t,” Wahlberg said to Task and Purposea website dedicated to veterans.

    If Wahlberg is acting in a movie that portrays the martial law take down of a city to prove that it could be done, I need no more of his comments or craft. Actors have a moral obligation to some amount of truth in their portrayals of people in actual events. Patriots Day was no more than a propaganda piece aimed at justifying the false-flag and following militarized response. Next thing you know Ben Kingsley will be playing a transsexual George Washington stopping at a warming hut before visiting troops at Martha’s Vineyard or Meryl Streep will be seen portraying a human being with intelligence at the Golden Globe awards.
