Larry the Cable Guy has slammed a number of Hollywood stars who he believes are out of touch with the current homeless situation in Los Angeles, Calif., amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot and other celebrities, including Kristen Wiig, James Marsden and Natalie Portman, posted a cover of John Lennon’s famous song “Imagine” on social media in an effort to inspire hope.
“We’re all in this together,” Gadot captioned the video. She said she recorded it on Day 6 of her home quarantine.
But the comedian from Nebraska has called them out on Twitter for being “clueless” in their efforts to ease the public’s concerns over the pandemic.
“Here’s a message from people with a lot of possessions that can take a year off of work and not flinch telling everyone outa work to imagine a world with no possessions while people are living in the street a half mile away from ‘em,” Larry the Cable Guy, whose real name is Daniel Whitney, tweeted Thursday.
“This really pisses me off! Most of us don’t have any savings. Paycheck to paycheck,” one of the funny man’s followers agreed.
The comedian responded, “They’re clueless.”
“The GREATEST lesson we’re all going to learn, is how VERY LITTLE these people matter in our lives. Their red carpets. Their paid endorsements. Their fashions. Their films…,” wrote another Twitter user.
“They are tone-deaf on so many levels,” another person responded to the comedian.
Minutes later, Larry the Cable Guy thanked his fans for communicating with him on the subject, stressing that while he holds no resentment for the stars involved in the rendition, it did not catalyze change.
“I appreciate all the awesome tweets today. Sorry I couldn’t respond to all. I have no animosity toward these folks. The song was in bad taste. Marx would be proud of that song. And I’m not imagining no heaven. Jesus gives hope. Government can’t give people a heart change or hope,” he explained in a second tweet.
As of Friday morning, the confirmed number of global coronavirus infections crossed 240,000. The virus has also reportedly killed more people in Italy than in China as Italy’s death toll reached over 3,400 and is now the highest in the world.
The United States has more than 14,000 confirmed cases across all 50 states and has resulted in more than 200 deaths.
Larry The Cable Guy is a very funny comedian who also happens to be a Christian American, as is his good friend, Jeff Foxworthy.
While the character that Larry plays onstage is basically an overgrown adolescent, in real life he is a pretty smart fellow, who usually hits the nail squarely on the head, as he did here.
The “stars” in Hollywood, like the rest of the Far Left Democrats, are totally out-of-touch with the daily lives of average Americans and what we think, feel, believe, and hold dear.
After President Barack Hussein Obama took office, he made a point of stating several times that America was not just a Christian nation anymore.
And, while that remains true to a certain extent, it is also true that the overwhelming majority, 75% of Americans, still proclaim themselves to be followers of Jesus Christ. And even beyond that, 92% of Americans still believe in God.
What is amazing to me, though, is how American Christianity is constantly attacked by Hollywood and Far Left Democrats.
From illegal immigration to abortion to homosexual “rights”, Americans who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ on these issues, including President Trump and Vice-President Pence, have been under fire by Liberals, who insist that they know more about what is in the Bible and what Christ says, or would say, about these topics, then those of us who actually read God’s Word.
Claiming to be wise, they became fools. – Romans 1:22
When you enter into a Facebook “discussion” with these “new Pharisees”, and you counter their arguments on these topics with Scripture, Liberals are initially slow to respond.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16 ESV
Most Liberals will start “Googling” these topics, looking for any Scriptures that will substantiate their position.
There’s been many a time they have come back at me with Old Testament Scripture. It is then that I explain to them about the sacrifice that Christ made for us sinners, freeing Christians from Jewish Law and taking the punishment for our sins , creating a New Covenant by covering Christians through the shedding of His blood.
At that point in the “discussion”, there is a long pause, as they are trying to figure out a comeback.
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.- 1 Corinthians 2:14
This misconception, which I have been trying to explain, involves Liberals’ belief that American Christians will not fight back against them and the things they want to say and do in our society.
If there’s one thing during all of the years of anti-Christian bias, which we experienced during the Obama administration, and now, after Christian Americans helped elect American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump as the 45th President, that the Liberals should have learned, is the fact that Christian American Conservatives will fight back.
It is funny though…that when we begin fighting back, the Liberals have a tendency to label us as uncaring, mean , divisive, and intolerant.
Hence, their tone deaf rendition of John Lennon’s “Imagine” at a time when Americans are “looking toward the Author and Finisher of our Faith” more than ever..
Liberals act that way because they believe themselves to be the smartest person in any room in which they happen to enter.
For Liberal Democrats on one hand to attempt to use the God of Abraham as a Spokesperson and Arbiter against the actions and policies of President Trump, as they have in the past, after turning their back on God for years, and now to sing in the middle of a Pandemic “Imagine there’s no Heaven” is a display of hypocrisy that would have made even the ancient Pharisees blush.
Instead, perhaps they should follow the advice found in 2 Chronicles 7:14 which states
…if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
And, most importantly, those Hollywood “stars” need to know that
…if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous. 2 He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. – 1 John 2:1-2
We have Someone in our corner.
GOD’S GOT THIS!!!
Until He Comes,
