RON HART: Holy La-La Land, Batman!

Published: Thursday, August 29, 2013 at 17:08 PM.

ROSEMARY BEACH — Leftists have always controlled the media, particularly the movie industry.

With all our problems of joblessness, dropping incomes, slow economic growth, Syria, rising healthcare costs and over-regulation under Obama, what is on the minds of Change.org? They petition the president to denounce the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman. This is the same site that leaned on the president to demand the prosecution of George Zimmerman when local authorities rightfully said that there was no case.

Somehow leftists think it is the role of their president to act outside the purview of the federal government. These are the same type of people who call 911 demanding police action because they got eleven chicken McNuggets in their McDonald’s 12-piece meal.

In hopes of quelling the gassing of Syrian citizens, perhaps Obama can intervene like he did in the GM bankruptcy and offer the Batman villain role to Syria’s evil President Assad. I am all for stopping genocide, but what do we know about Assad’s acting chops? Yes, he has some community theater experience, but is it worth putting the whole Batman franchise at risk just to save thousands of lives? These are the questions Obama’s people want him to weigh in on.

These vapid, LA limousine-liberals do not grasp issues like Syria. Some might say, “Cool look at that, Damascus provides its citizens with free government paid chemical peels.”

This administration gave bona fide liberal producer Kathryn Bigelow and the daughter of Oracle founder Larry Ellison, both Obama campaign donors, special government access — and essentially the bin Laden killing movie rights on a silver platter. Bigelow's “Zero Dark Thirty” was a big money-maker and made Obama look good.

The left makes movies with huge tax credits lavished upon them by our government while they spew their “Pay Your Fair Share” rhetoric at the rest of us.
