Jamie Foxx just went against the liberal tide in Hollywood and it’s glorious!
Foxx recently appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast, and when the subject of political correctness came up, Foxx’s opinions left everyone in shock.
He believes that in reality, political correctness is hurting the Democrats, and caused them to lose the 2016 election to Donald Trump, who is anything but politically correct.
Most of Jamie’s peers would rather blame Trump’s win on racism, sexism, or vodka-swilling Russians. But, when it all boils down, Trump spoke his mind and a lot of people liked what he was saying. End of story.
It’s so refreshing to see someone in Hollywood talking some sense! ( Even if he only makes sense on this issue )
Jamie may not explicitly say it, but the culprit he’s identifying is political correctness. “Playing things too close” refers to knowing something is true but refraining from saying it. Kind of like when you know illegal immigration leads to a bunch of rape and murder, but you keep quiet for fear of offending Latinos. Enter Trump, unafraid to call an illegal pendejo an illegal pendejo.
The truth is people are tired of political correctness and they’re tired of being lied to. Politicians tell us one thing, while doing another. They praise the tenets of Socialism, while in the market for a third house. They claim their bill will lower healthcare costs, then the opposite happens. You can only keep up the charade for so long before the people call bulls**t.
That’s why the Trump, an imperfect candidate by any measure, was able to effortlessly steamroll the PC-approved, market-tested she-devil known as Hillary Clinton. Because he’s direct with his message. Take note, PC leftists. You too, Senate Republicans who promised to repeal Obamacare.
Foxx leaves nothing on the table in regards to his political beliefs: he’s a fervent supporter of the Democratic party. He’s been donating to that party since 2006, but in 2009 he upped the ante by donating $30,400 to the Democratic National Committee and a few years later another $17,900 to Barack Obama’s reelection campaign.6 That’s a pretty heavy chunk of change.
His support for the Democrats seems to stem mainly from his belief that government should be working for the common man–the lower and middle classes. He said,
No matter how much money I make, it doesn’t matter. Every time I drive down the street or into a neighborhood that doesn’t have as much, you feel for them. . . . I think what we gotta get away from is, making the person who is the common man feel bad about himself. . . . Everyone matters.7
He heartily supported Obama in both 2008 and 2012, and he recorded several videos encouraging the black community to get out and vote for America’s first black president.89 And he even agrees with the Democrats on their position on gay marriage–an issue which he didn’t always support. He said his 13-year-old daughter convinced him that whether or not people are gay and want to get married shouldn’t be something that he should care to stop.10
But in the end, it’s the democratic process and the country of his birth that he loves the most:
This is the best country to live in. . . . [because of] the freedoms we have here, even the freedom to question [our leaders]
