Hollywood Whores and Hypocrites

7 Sep
Recently libertarian vloggers and bloggers have been debating slut-shaming and whether a real libertarian would do it.

We come down firmly on the side of slut-shaming, especially political sluts like these listed over at

1. Sheryl Crow

Sheryl Crow
“I think war is based in greed and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow. I think war is never the answer to solving any problems. The best way to solve problems is to not have enemies.”
— Sheryl Crow

2. Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen
“War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing.”
— Bruce Springsteen

3. Martin Sheen

Martin Sheen
“But I am equally against the death penalty or war — anywhere people are sacrificed for some end justifying a means.”
— Martin Sheen

4. Ed Asner

Ed Asner
“I also think that there is a strong streak of racism, and whenever we engage in foreign adventures. Our whole history in regime change has been of people of different color.” 
— Ed Asner

5. Sean Penn

Sean Penn
“I think we’re past that point in human evolution where there’s such a thing as winning wars.”
— Sean Penn

6. Tim Robbins

Tim Robbins
“It is very inspiring and amusing how many people have come out in this genuine and spontaneous way to embrace peace and reject war. It reminds us there is a human and gentle spirit out there in this world.”
— Tim Robbins

7. George Clooney

George Clooney
“You can’t beat your enemy anymore through wars; instead you create an entire generation of people revenge-seeking.”
— George Clooney

8. Jackson Browne

Jackson Browne
“American people always have to be tricked into going to war, they always have to be cajoled. I mean, there’s a long history of being lied to, of having things described in a particular way, in order to get them out of their sort of isolationist… prosperity mode and go to war.”
— Jackson Brown

9. Janeane Garofalo

Janeane Garofalo
“War is failure! When you are at war, you have failed!”
— Janeane Garofalo

10. Neil Young

Neil Young
“I don’t like war. I particularly don’t like the celebration of war.”
— Neil Young

11. Jessica Lange

Jessica Lange
“Let’s talk for a minute about these masters of war, these same men that are sending our sons and our daughters, our brothers and sisters, our mothers and fathers to fight an undeclared and unconstitutional and unwinnable war for them.”
— Jessica Lange

12. Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand
“You know, really good artists have a way of being relevant in their time — but great artists are relevant at any time. So, in the words of William Shakespeare, ‘Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor.”
— Barbra Streisand

13. Danny Glover

Danny Glover
“The world has come together and said ‘no’ to this war – and we must stand with them.”
— Danny Glover

14. Susan Sarandon

Susan Sarandon
“Let us resist this war. Let us hate war in all its forms, whether the weapon used is a missile or an airplane.”
— Susan Sarandon
The only explanation for their continued silence must be a large, organized kidnapping. To whoever is responsible for their disappearance, please post pictures of them holding a recent newspaper so we know they’re okay. Maybe one of these:

  • Join the Cato Institute and the Heritage Foundation as we host our annual summer intern debate to discuss the topic: Is libertarianism or conservatism the better political philosophy?

    The event will be moderated by political strategist Nicole Neily. A reception will follow.

    This event is open to all students, interns, and young professionals. To reserve your seat, register here: The event will also be broadcast live online:

    Liberty and virtue are values that both conservatives and libertarians tout as components of their philosophies. Historically, disagreements about the definitions of and balance between liberty and virtue have taken a back seat to other more pressing conflicts, causing the distinct philosophies to often be lumped together. As times have changed, elements of the old “fusionism” alliance have dissolved, and new conflicts have emerged that impose a strain on the formerly functioning, though imperfect, ideological partnership.

    Recent policy issues have highlighted disagreements in areas such as the War on Drugs, national defense, welfare, immigration, marriage, foreign policy, and many others. These topics represent important reasons to discuss the similarities and the differences between the two worldviews.

    We invite you to a timely debate about the two philosophies and their associated policy applications, as interns from the Heritage Foundation and the Cato Institute go head-to-head to answer the perennial question: Is libertarianism or conservatism the better political philosophy?
