An open letter to Marina Sirtis & all celebrities, minor celebrities & has beens practicing to be a never was that are trash talking Trump!
Dear Marina Sirtis
Firstly, thanks so much for your appearance on Star Trek The Next Generation as Deanna Troi. Your performance was impeccable and the wardrobe department’s bold use of spandex was most definitely a genius step. I would like to add to your list of acting prowess but the only other thing I can think of is your appearance in Stargate SG1, The TV Series. Yes I did check IMDB but as we both know as actors, minor roles are just filler!
Whilst I was a fan and don’t want to be rude to you I am really disappointed at not only your foolishness as an actor, and your lack of Business Acumen, but your attempts to make me look unprofessional for merely disagreeing with you. May I remind you that it was your character that was empathic, not you and although you may think having one starring role qualifies you to be a Political Commentator, I am here to inform you that it doesn't!
Your Timeline on Twitter stinks of Liberal Logic and Anti Trump sentiment and you slanderous accusations would only be tolerated by those with no intellect. Calling Donald Trump a racist in order to further the political aspirations of Hillary Clinton or to boost your own flagging career is suicidal and your fan base dwindles daily.
This is before we even consider how many Casting Agents and TV Show Executives actually know and support Donald Trump and will be aware of your commentary. I for one am no longer a fan and will not support you anymore, but will observe your career suicide from afar. Even hard core fans will not tolerate your lies and misrepresentations of Mr Trump based upon the watered down perceptions you have gleaned from others.
When I called you out for an example regarding your assumptions that Donald Trump is racist, you cited commentary that had been generalised regarding his suggestion some Mexicans in The USA Illegally, had raped and murdered people. His reference was directly relating to those who had and was not a generalization about all Mexicans.
Your choice to misappropriate Mr Trump's commentary is directly and intentionally designed to draw focus from Mrs Clinton's own racism. Her best friend was head of The KKK. Robert Bird, The Grand Dragon of The KKK was the Clinton's best friend. Talk about hypocrisy!
You then had the audacity to criticize me by saying I didn't understand the concept of fact checking. Well my dear Marina, who hasn't had a major role since Star Trek, let me correct you for one moment. I have among other things been a fair and objective journalist for over 20 years. I have hosted, written and produced a Radio Show & a TV Show for four years and have checked my facts meticulously. What gives you the right to question my fact checking? Your guest appearance in Casualty maybe?
It is one thing to disagree but to assert superiority based on the fact that you're a 61 year old British Actress who had one successful role that required cleavage and spandex is preposterous. I would even go so far as to say your knowledge of American Politics is minimal at best and clearly because you voted Labour and loved Tony Blair that makes you a Democrat. As for fact checking, I suggest you check out Hillary's racist commentary, maybe she still want's to refer to Black People as predatory and wants to bring them to heel.
Don't think for one minute that once the election is over fans will forget how you and others have behaved. You are slowly but surely isolating your fan base and encouraging those who could give you work not to do so. Let's face it Marina, your career has been far from successful since Star Trek, can you really afford to isolate fans and potential employers further with your level of dishonest commentary? I think not!
Sirtis is not the only celeb/minor celeb enticed by Clinton's brand of dishonesty, oh no sirree! Both Cher and Barbra Streisand have also been duped. At a recent fundraiser Streisand reworded "Send in the clowns" and was offensive about Trump. It is interesting how these people forget that probably half their fan base if not more could be supporting Trump. Even the gays have support for Trump and more than any other Republican Candidate in history, Donald supports the gays.
Think on celebs/minor celebs and wannabes. The fans you lose during this election cycle are not coming back and I am sure some of you really can't afford to hemorrhage more fans. What of my fan base you say? Well interestingly enough my fan base found me and support me because of my leanings. As a Talk Show Host, Writer & Political Commentator my followers are very specific, but I am wondering, can you say the same Marina, Cher, Babs and others? I think not!
Love & Peace, Xan xo
It’s no secret that I have evolved politically over the last few years, but sadly some have stayed chained in the bondage of Liberalism and the lies attached to it. Whilst I never considered myself a Liberal when I was a Democrat, I was fraught with contradiction and control. I'd frankly had enough of Obama’s failed rhetoric and inability to make any lasting difference.
Changing allegiances will never make you popular or even enable you be trusted easily. Lets face it I was viewed as too liberal to be conservative by my conservative friends and clearly a total conservative by my liberal friends. Whilst I consider myself to be a conservative in all honesty I am still just me trying to make a difference and make America a better place.
I always believed that this would only be achieved by left and right working together and forging a point to grow from based upon the things we do agree on. Division is only achievable by allowing our differences in opinion to tear through any chances of growth and development. I do fundamentally believe some really do want there to be divide and are too unreachable, but most are not.
In the run up to the Presidential elections things became very difficult for me politically once more with the division within The GOP and in the country as a whole. Sadly that grew and the uncertainty that ensued was palpable. Regardless of everything else I do believe that God is in control and even with the fact that humanity is flawed we will get by.
The race ensued and it got down to four, two on each side and in all any honesty I didn’t feel particularly warm and supportive towards any of them. I don’t think I could ever support a Democrat in office again, I mean look at the mess Obama has made of the USA in less than 8 years. His policies were quick fixes and his promises constantly failed and clearly "Teflon Trouser Suit Girl" Hillary would basically grab his policies and eek them out for another four years and then blame the previous incumbent.
When it got down to a two horse race and it was clear that Donald Trump would be the GOP nominee I was forced to make a choice. I could, like so many of my conservative friends chuck a hissy fit because Cruz had not won the nomination and support a 3rd party runner. On reflection that was really never an option because a vote for anybody but Trump was a vote for Hillary, so totally defeated the object.
I also heard some were saying they would vote for Hillary as a protest as Trump wasn’t even a Conservative. I don’t ever recall him professing he was and as for questioning whether he was still a Democrat, he was running on the GOP docket. What more do you need, for him to get a tattoo with GOP on his arm? In a way it made things very simple and I quickly came to a conclusion.
It was clear that it was imperative to love America more than I disliked elements of the candidate. Is Trump perfect? Heck no but neither was any other candidate and let’s face it, Jesus wasn’t running this year. When I looked at Hillary and Donald side by side, based upon track record, Donald did look so bad. There have been many things Trump has said that I have found abhorrent, but in fairness, to quote an 11 yr old “I’d rather deal with a few bad words than get bombed or my head cut off”
Hillary would do or say anything to get elected and she carries a level of culpability regarding Benghazi. Having the blood of my fellow countrymen on your hands is a definite turnoff for me and that’s before we get to the EMail stuff. Then there are four hundred million more reasons not to want Teflon Tessie Clinton as our POTUS. Yes I am referring to the fact that her department arranged for $400 Million taxpayer dollars to be given to our sworn enemies. You know the ones who want to kill us and our allies.
Wake up America, Hillary and Bill have been in bed with terrorists for years and put personal profit above the safety of people like you and me. She has already indicated she wants to change freedom of speech laws and another Clinton in the Whitehouse is one too many for me.
When I started to go public about choosing to support Donald Trump, I was subject to many forms of abuse. Being a Talk Show Host I am thankfully pretty thick skinned. It started slow with people retweeting negative things I had said about Trump from 3 and 4 years ago. Big deal, I chose to comment on what I perceived to be negative comments from Trump.
Then people unfollowed me for my Political Position. People I had known for 30 yrs blocked me for supporting him. I was told I had no self respect if I supported Trump which in all honesty was so far from the truth. I was insulting the LGBT Community by supporting him. Get real! The Gays have far more to worry about with Hillary. She took donations from countries that KILL gays and throw them off roofs for merely being gay. Her support for this community only occurred to get the gay vote.
I had quite a public slanging match with the Editor of The Huffington Post, Noah Michelson who stated he didn’t know of anyone gay supporting Trump. TA DA, and I’m not even a Republican. He went into such a tirade of vitriol criticizing me, my journalism and my right to an opinion. It was like being back in highschool, you know when that one friend says you can’t be friends with someone they dislike. His commentary was so abhorrent even friends of mine from the board of Verizon who own the Liberal Rag where disgusted with him.
When I pointed this out he asked me if that was a threat and quickly backed down. I asked my friends to take no action but they are monitoring the situation. What more can we expect from a professional homosexual who writes such tat as the article below, that encourages gays to stop sleeping with Trump supporters in order to defeat him. Oh yes Noah, that will stop him, keep up that award winning Journalism. Come back Arianna Huffington, all is forgiven
He even went so far as to state that The Huffington Post’s Editorial position was that “Trump is dangerous and must be stopped at all costs” I am sure my friends on The Verizon Board would have concerns with that statement as they are Republicans! Good luck with your little tirade Noah because clearly yours or anyone’s friendship that does not allow for personal perspective, is a friendship not worth having. Bye Felicia!!
In conclusion I want to clarify that point. Anyone who claims to be your friend and does not allow for your own personal political convictions was never your friend in the first place. I am fully ensconced on The Trump Train Thanks so much to my friends for saving me a seat. If my stumping for Trump means you cannot be my friend any longer, adios amigo and good luck helping Teflon Tessie wipe the blood from her hands!
Love and Peace Xan x
