Bill Murray

Oh boy. I bet there are a lot of Caddyshack, Ghostbusters, Saturday Night Live (and a million other movies/shows), that are really unhappy today. This past week one of the greatest comedians of the last half-century, Bill Murray, sat down for an interesting and honest interview on CNBC.

During the interview, Murray relayed the thoughts of one of his conservative friends who explained to the comedian why he simply cannot stand Democrat politics.

Now, Murray is not generally someone who sides with conservative politicians but he seems to agree with his friend that today’s Democrat Party leaves a lot to be desired. Here’s what the funnyman had to say:

When asked if there was hope for healing across the political divide, Murray sounded a worried note and said he just wasn’t sure our differences could easily be ironed out.

He argued first that many popular figures today were constantly speaking out in ways that divide people, and that more of us need to be speaking to the things that unite us instead.

He pointed to popular comedienne Kristen Wiig who is seemingly loved on all sides, “How can Kristen Wiig make everyone laugh? She’s not thinking about being political. She’s thinking about what resonates and what’s common to all of us…”

Murray then went on to relay the story of his friend, conservative comedy writer, Jim Downey.

“My friend who’s a great comedy writer, Jim Downey, he’s accused of being a right-wing comedy writer, if there is such a thing.

He says, no no, I just think the way the Democrats handle things is poor, the way they try to pick out little pieces…where [they say] ‘we represent the Hispanics, we represent LGBTQ’ or something. And they’re not speaking to everyone at once. It’s almost demeaning to say ‘I’m choosing you because you’re a splinter group or you’re a certain minority group.’

There’s almost a resentment…you’re separated again by a politician. You’re my people, I’m in control of you, and I represent you. Instead of thinking each citizen has the right to be respected as a citizen first under the laws of the country.”

Murray isn’t generally known as an overly political person, or even someone who normally comments on the current political zeitgeist, but he’s hit the nail on the head with this commentary. […]

        No he isnt. What year was his last movie ? Oh nearly forgot…. You Sloppy Queens Twat… Still doesnt change the fact he worked for the same pedophiles and isnt relevant anymore. That at least shows he isnt hollywood illuminati scum. Pair of kingtwats.

    The Bible announced no one would know when it happened and the Apocalypse would appear all of a sudden, and reveal me, the Messiah.
    I’m not getting my dues for being Jesus and the Messiah
    I wonder why.

    • King of Shambhala

      Trolls shouldn’t be dignified by a response.
      Jesus is the one who reveals and defeats the Antichrist.
      I’m the only one who reveals that heaven sent a message that Obama’s the Antichrist by the lottery draw of 666 in Obama’s home state, the day of his election celebration.
      Jesus should be the one to reveal the Antichrist but I’m doing it in his stead: maybe Jesus wasn’t available these days, so that’s why I came instead of Jesus so as to carry out the Apocalypse prophecy.
      There’s nor reason the trolls shouldn’t accept that if they can just set their minds to doing actual thought and stop the mental illness, lies and psyops/shilling for their god and savior the Antichrist Obama which they’re accustomed to doing 24 7 since ten years now (they’ve got no chance of getting away now and their “god” Obama’s headed for a certain jail sentence).

      I’m owed due for being that messenger.
      Why is no one giving me my due for being the one to bring the Apocalypse? (and so therefore I’m defeating the Antichrist!)

      • King of Shambhala

        Why am I not given credit where it is due?
        I’m owed due for being the messenger who reveals that heaven sent the lottery draw of 666 in his home state on the day of Obama’s victory-celebration. The Messiah is the only one who brings that message.
        Why is no one giving me my due for being the only one to bring the Apocalypse? (because due to that, I’m alone defeating the Antichrist!!! Yes, I’m the only one! Recognize it already!!! Don’t go into denial!)
