Fuck off you grotty little fascist

The actor Leonardo DiCaprio has said he thinks that those who don’t believe in climate change should not hold public office.

Speaking at the White House ahead of a screening of his new documentary, Before the Flood, DiCaprio said such rejection indicated an inability to engage with the rational world.

“If you don’t believe in climate change, you don’t believe in facts, and science, and empirical truths,” he said.

“And, in my humble opinion, [you] should not be allowed to hold public office.”

Yes, yes, cue all those jokes about taking private jets to pick up an environmental award.

But this is, well it’s not just fascism really, it’s a form of totalitarianism. To say that I don’t think you should vote for people with the wrong, to my mind, views on climate change is just fine. The essence of politics if you like. But to say that those with the wwrong views should not be allowed to be elected is to descend into there being an ideological test for office. You can vote for anyone as long as they’re a communist, or a national socialist and so on, as has been done around the world many a time.

To think that someone is unfit for office based on their views is just fine. To insist that they cannot hold office is vile–so fuck off short arse.

Yes, this does apply equally to other views. I would and do argue that SWP types are idiots who shouldn’t be within 500 yards of elective office and I’ve a good evidence base to back me up. But they’ve every right to stand and every right to take office if people are loon enough to elect them.

  1. Bravo Tim. I long for the time when actors were commonly held in far less esteem than ladies of easy virtue. How did we get to a point of constant preening and awards for playing dress up, but also giving the self absorbed luvvies views any sort of credence on politics, the environment or anything other than putting on a bit of slap and mincing around.

  2. Wow.

    Actor says people don’t engage with reality so they should disappear.

    You obviously are a thick little wanker. They’re what you sometimes call an “audience”.

  3. Such a shame he has to come out work this crap because in most other regards he’s a total legend. Great actor and admirable playboy.

    Unbelievable, really. Imagine if he’d called Obama a nigger. His acting career would be dead. But for some reason, saying that the government should be able to decide who can stand for office doesn’t lead to that, despite the fact that it’s pissing on everything America stands for.

    Thankfully, I don’t rate him that highly, so easy enough to boycott.

  5. Climate catastrophism is a cult which has adopted extreme dogmatism about a set of beliefs which no one is allowed to challenge/explore/dispel as myths and it has made an attempt to capture the state, academia, the msm and various previously esteemed journals.

    Science is METHOD not a set of facts which are always challengeable. Progress is when ideas which were previously consensus are overturned by evidence and alternative explanations, usually resisted by the science clerisy.

    Fuck off back to acting, Leo.

  6. Perfectly reasonable. You can’t hold office in the transient government if you don’t hold the same views as the permanent government.

  7. I have never seen any of his films but I shall reconsider my position when hell freezes over.

  8. There used to be a killer expression “you are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts”. I see that has now become redundant. Climate Change (caused by nasty humans doing stuff I don’t approve of) is a fact, because I say so. And anyone that disagrees with me will have their windows smashed and be sent to the camps.

  9. Presumably then he’d be happy to ban all muslims or jews from holding political office because of their irrational, anti-science beliefs?

  10. We’d be saved all of these inane asinine ramblings from these preening and prancing luvvies if they went back to being properly preening and prancing mummers, masked and mute so nobody would know who the hell they were and what they sounded and looked like. And their pay packets would go back to being reasonable too.

  11. Mark T:
    The real problem is that computer modelling has captured the narrative. That their predictions continually fail to match reality and that the statistics gatherers keep rewriting the past in order to keep the theory afloat, is entirely ignored by the msm which is happy to sell drowning polar bears, sunken cities and a world aflame.

  12. The funniest bit of miscasting since giving Tim Robbins the role of Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption has to be Leonardo DiCaprio playing Jay Gatsby in The Great Gatsby.

    All the charisma of a fencepost.

  13. Ljh –

    Try getting a journalism major to understand why you get crap predictions when you use a relatively simple linear, deterministic, dynamical mathematical model to describe a hyper-complex nonlinear system.

  14. “If you don’t believe in climate change, you don’t believe in facts, and science, and empirical truths,” he said.

    But Leo luvvie: of course I believe in climate change, it has been going on for 4 billion years, but it is precisely because I do believe in facts as opposed to assertions, science as opposed to belief, empirical evidence – which relies on observation from experiment, not theories – that I do not ‘believe’ in the claim that a trace atmospheric gas necessary for all life on the Planet uniquely controls the Climate.

    And -speaking of facts – be a dear and learn how to read a graph then you will see no global warming of any cause for almost the last 20 years.

  15. I don’t understand all the hatred for expressing “humble opinion” based just on the information in the article. Is it just jealously that he is more famous giving his half-formed ideas a larger forum or has he actually called for government restrictions on stupid people?

    Note: There are plenty of times I wish scientifically illiterate people were barred from office. Virtually all of the ‘greens’ would be out as well so we could get some sensible environmental laws.

  16. Jealousy? No not really. It’s the fact that DiCapro is (1) at least as scientifically illiterate as those he criticizes, (2) quite the hypocrite, given his carbon footprint – with or without his private jet rides factored in – and, (3) what he’s really doing is virtue signaling to the remainder of the cream of the scum of Hollywood.

    He doesn’t give a fuck about climate change and never has. This is all about protecting and enhancing his movie career. If Leo was really concerned about the planet, he wouldn’t be living the life he’s living.

    By virtue of landing the lead in one of Cameron’s shitty chick flicks, he now considers himself a member of the global elite… fit to tell you and I what’s good for us and what’s not. If that isn’t the definition of a cunt, I don’t know what is.

  17. I guess my problem is that I don’t take actor’s political statement seriously.

    I do however take financial advise from ex-rappers seriously. I fully recommend you check out HC Hammer Financially Planners LLC. Mention Liberal Yank sent you to get a $250 discount off of fund setup fees.
