Clint Eastwood Thinks We Should All Get Over Donald Trump’s Blatant Racism
Some celebrities should stop doing interviews. Clint Eastwood is one of them. In his recent cover story for Esquire, Eastwood called millennials a “pussy generation” because they are offended by Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump’s endless racist and sexist commentary. The veteran actor said Trump’s lack of a filter rejects “political correctness” and people need to stop saying that everything is racist. That’s right, Clint Eastwood supports Trump’s lack of political correctness.
“But [Trump’s] onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,” Eastwood told Esquire’s Michael Hainey. “That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”
Umm, newsflash Clint Eastwood — when you were a kid it was still racist, it’s just that a lot of people went along with the bullshit because there were lots of laws protecting said bullshit. Not to mention the fact that people were being killed for speaking the real truth. Unfortunately, much of the same nonsense is happening decades later, but this so-called “pussy generation” is (mostly) unavailable for backwards thinking and has no problems calling someone (like you) out for being loud and wrong.
Although he didn’t officially endorsed Trump for president, he did say he would pick Trump because Hillary would follow in President Obama’s footsteps. So basically, he is going to vote for Trump but doesn’t have the guts to say it, despite his comments. Eastwood acknowledged that The Donald is racist AF, but he just thinks people should just accept it and move on.
“You know, he’s a racist now because he’s talked about this judge,” Eastwood said. “And yeah, it’s a dumb thing to say. I mean, to predicate your opinion on the fact that the guy was born to Mexican parents or something. He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides. But everybody — the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just fucking get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”
Yes, Eastwood, you are so right. We should just ignore the fact that a racist and sexist moron is one step away from being the president of the United States because we don’t want to look like pussies and kiss-asses. Ignoring prevalent issues and staying silent when it comes to civil rights is the perfect way to make sure people can live a great life. But, you don’t care about that because you miss those good ol’ days, right?
Mr. Eastwood, please stick to talking to empty chairs.
