Whinery: Susan Sarandon and Ted Nugent, Enemies of the State?

You heard about Ted Nugent being investigated by the Secret Service for giving a fiery speech at the National Rifle Association’s yearly meeting, right?

The one where he said stuff that could be construed as “threatening” to President Obama. That is if you have no sense of humor.

Now I hear Susan Sarandon was denied a security clearance to go to the White House and insists her phone is being tapped by the Government. For what? Unless it’s deemed that her movies are a threat to National Security (which outside of her role as “Janet” in the Rocky Horror Picture Shadow and a scene with Catherine Deneuve in The Hunger – is entirely plausible).

Why would an arch liberal like Ms. Sarandon be deemed too risky to go to the White House?

Having perused her history of political activism, I don’t see anything outside the mainstream. Among her long list of affiliations and activism there’s EMILY’s List, a money bundler for liberal female candidates, she served as a chair on Ralph Nader’s Presidential Campaign in 2000, participated in numerous anti-war rallies and was even named a Goodwill Ambassador to UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund).

I don’t even see where even the Bush White House would consider Sarandon a threat- let alone a Leftist President like Obama.

I voted for Nader in 2000, supported liberal female Kathleen Sebelius for Governor of Kansas, marched in anti-war rallies and think UNICEF is one of the few worthwhile agencies at the United Nations…

Am I on a watch list too?

Nah,  I’m probably too confusing for the “Watchers” to classify since I worked for Bush in 2004 and am a lifetime member of the NRA and multiple other right leaning clubs and organizations.

What is going on in the United States of America where Ted Nugent is being investigated for exercising free speech and Susan Sarandon for exercising freedom of assembly? Two rights that firmly ensconced in the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights for goodness sakes!
 
If even the rich and the famous are being persecuted for their political beliefs, what does the Government plan to do with “regular” Citizens who disagree with their practices and policies?

    Brandon, congratulations on your political leanings, I think Bush opened a Pandora’s box with the so called “Patriot Act” (Damn, if I hear one more right winger saying what Obama’s done to the Constitution, I swear what short effing memories we have…) but since you worked for him, I’m sure you’ll respectfully disagree. While I could give a whit about Sarandon, when you even imply something along the lines of what “The Nuge” did (and it wasn’t his first time he has threatened the President in public), you’re asking for it. I find it very interesting that “The Nuge” is now a “hero” to the right wing when he shit all over himself top get out of serving in Vietnam and is a known pedophile (17 will get you 20). Some Patriot!

    it might surprise you
    but I am a so called “right winger” and agree with you 100% about the patriot act. I also don’t like some of the things Obama has done. Over the years, the power of the executive branch has grown to well beyond what our founding fathers intended. Going to war without congressional approval, ordering hits, phone taps, and various Czars are a few examples. As far as these various celebrities are concerned, why does the media continually treat them as if they are experts on political issues when most of them are not. There are idiotic statements made by celebrities on both sides of the political spectrum. They are given too much attention.

    Thanks For Politicizing This
    Since they serve different adminsitrations, I was always under the impression that the Secret Service was pretty much bi-partisan in utilizing their security measures and treats any perceived “threat” to the White House equally regardless of political leanings.

    I agree with Mike.
    Susan Sarandon is grindingly annoying. She and Tim whats his name are the most condescending fucks in Hollywood. The only thing they havn’t done, to the best of my knowledge, is run off to Africa and accessorize the family with some babies of color like Madonna and Angelina.

    “Its the latest thing!”

    There is no little irony is rich white Hollywood liberals running over to Africa and purchasing miniature Africans and bringing them back to keep up with the Jones.

    The race to become
    the Great White Baby Hunter, who can collect the most malnourished african babies?
    I smell ratings gold.
