Ben Affleck is smart enough to know an actor taking up political causes can shatter the illusion movies are meant to conjure.

Yet the Argo director and avowed liberal still sticks his foot in his mouth during a new interview with Playboy Magazine by insulting half of his audience.

Seems he's not sure he can be friends with anyone who pulls the lever repeatedly for GOP politicians.

The future Dark Knight (Affleck plays Batman in the upcoming Man of Steel sequel) said he can't help but consider an actor's politics while watching movies, and he takes that information to heart.

Affleck isn't alone in his lack of tolerance. Singer Katy Perry went so far as to not invite her parents to President Barack Obama's inauguration because they dared to call themselves Republican.

I don't dislike all democrats but I would never be a friend to a liberal democrat who spouts the progressive way. I haven't been to a movie of Ben's for years because of his big liberal mouth. I also quit going to anything of Brad Pitts and many others who open their mouths about their liberal leanings. I continue to go see movies if the actors haven't spouted their liberal leanings even if I suspect they are liberals as long as they keep their thoughts to themselves.

These Hollywood people that think they are democrats make me laugh. I was raised by a union business agent that Always voted for a democrat and he would think they were crazy for the entitlement programs that are being pushed down our throats, how the government wants to run our lives and the amount of taxes we are going to need to pay for this socialized medicine. The old style was a man had to make a living to provide for his family and to have that he needed an education or skill but now there is a large portion of the nation that wants to be given everything and not work and getting the government to hand out money and benefits to them is like a badge of skill. Actors are paid for their ability to reach alot of people and the democrats are becoming masters of working the media to their advantage. Really Ben Affleck is a B actor and doesn't have the draw of the A actors. Not very many people will take what he says and try to follow his advice. Just wish the republicans would learn that they are in a fight with a man that learned how to play dirty and will use every outlet to get what he wants. Trust is not a word any of those actors know about.

Ben Affleck, Katy Perry and their ilk are just useful fools.

Singer Katy Perry went so far as to not invite her parents to President Barack Obama's inauguration because they dared to call themselves Republican.

If you were bestowed the honor to perform at a presidential inauguration, wouldn't you want your parents in attendance regardless of their political beliefs?

Pop diva Katy Perry doesn't think so, for she told Marie Claire in an interview published Monday that because her parents are Republicans that didn't vote for Barack Obama, they couldn't watch her perform at his inauguration in January:

SANTA BARBARA is the place Perry gets to be Katheryn Hudson, "which is really important because Katheryn Hudson is the one who wanted to be a musician. I get to be centered again, to really breathe." Her evangelical parents, Keith Hudson and Mary Perry Hudson, and siblings, Angela Hudson and David Hudson, have all moved away and remain an integral part of her life. (Angela, a yoga instructor, accompanies her on tour and lives next door in L.A.) As Perry tells it, her parents met when Mary, "a pot-smoking debutante" and freelance journalist, was covering a tent revival in Las Vegas, which Keith, an acid-dropping hippie turned preacher, was attending. "People don't understand that I have a great relationship with my parents—like, how that can exist," she says. "There isn't any judgment. They don't necessarily agree with everything I do, but I don't necessarily agree with everything they do. They're at peace with—they pray for me is what they do. They're fascinated with the idea that they created someone who has this much attention on her. My parents are Republicans, and I'm not. They didn't vote for Obama, but when I was asked to sing at the inauguration, they were like, 'We can come.' And I was like, 'No, you can't. I love you so much, but that—on principle.' They understood, but I was like, 'How dare you?' in a way."

How dare they want an opportunity to see their daughter perform at a presidential inauguration?

How dare they?

If they were willing to put aside their political beliefs to see their daughter perform for the president, couldn't she?

Apparently not.

Pretty sickening, isn't it?

I "probably" wouldn't waste the money to see a Ben Affleck movie. No, wait, I never have.

Poor Ben's mind certainly does appear to be $#!t-fogged (a term with which I'd heretofore been unfamiliar).
The only difference between the Democrats and the Republicans is that the Democrats allow the poor to be corrupt, too.
