In this episode of “Hollywood Hypocrisy”…
On the off chance you’re unfamiliar with Dean Norris — I’m being facetious; I don’t watch television and I don’t care who he is — let’s begin with a short bio, via Celebrity Net Worth.
Dean Norris is an American actor who has a net worth of $5 million dollars. Dean is best known for playing the role of Hank Schrader on the AMC series “Breaking Bad”. He appeared in 51 episodes of the series (out of 62) between 2008 and 2013.
Now, the rest of the story…
Dean Norris is not a happy camper with everyday Americans struggling under Bidenflation — particularly those burdened by Biden’s staggering gas prices. But here’s the deal: It’s not that Norris gives a damn about the people who are struggling. Oh, hell no. Norris’s beef is with people complaining about the price of gas who, as he says, also “love capitalism so much.”
Norris recently tweeted a very succinct message to the aforementioned complainers: “STFU.”
Youre [sic] not getting “robbed” at the pump. You’re paying fair market price for a commodity. If you love Capitalism so much then stfu
As one might imagine, some of those people who are supposed to “STFU” failed to do so — and responded to Norris’s tweet. Here’s a representative response:
I love breaking bad, but a millionaire actor from Hollywood worth 5 million can’t be telling hard working Americans who live paycheck by paycheck to just suck it up when you specifically benefit from capitalism. Please just stick to acting my guy.
Memo to “Eli”: Norris is incapable of “just sticking to acting” exactly like every other liberal in Hollywood.
Talk radio host Dan O’Donnell took a different tack, correctly suggesting to Norris that “capitalism” isn’t responsible for the Biden Gas Price Hikes™ at all — with Biden’s own words.
Joe Biden in 2020: “No more subsidies for the fossil fuel industry. No more drilling including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill period. It ends.”
Dean Norris was unavailable for comment.
And finally, a guy with a brain responds to Norris — and Biden’s failed energy policies.
But it’s not capitalism, the government is using policy to create a demand for electric vehicles as part of their green energy policy. Capitalism would be a level playing field between the ICE powered cars and the EV’s and the consumers would decide the winner on their own.
Bingo. Any questions, Dean?
So, there were multiple (stupid) things going on in Dean Norris’s tweet, including the common thread that exists in the DNA of all left-wingers: hypocrisy. Of course a guy worth $5 million or more who gets paid to pretend to be other people has zero understanding of — nor compassion for — the everyday struggles of people who work hard for a living to pay their monthly bills, many of them living check-to-check.
The bottom line:
Norris’s hypocrisy is not dissimilar to that of Leonardo DiCaprio (net worth: $260 million) or Joe Biden’s laughable “special presidential envoy for climate,” John Kerry (net worth: $250 million), both of whom flit around the world on their private jets and sail the seas on their private yachts, yet trot out at various “climate summits” and preach to rest of us about “the existential threat of mankind,” evil fossil fuels.
Incidentally, Mr. Norris, as I recall, capitalism was alive and well during the Trump administration. Remember how gas prices were less than half of the price in most of America, today?
So do we, Mr. Hollywood. So do we.
