12:07 pm
2020 defending people who were duplicitous. john: crooks and thieves this is just a poor act a lot oy especially with young people unfortunately like better not young people take th cue from celebrities. being hip and cool means in favor of the conservationist policies that rrison ford gotis chest waxed over but i don't care he owns seven airplanes. i would love to but do not lecture me or the rest of us that we are on the press of this of karmic added while you have a sasquatch sized car ben for prep. that is what i confronted him. >> the press treats actors differently the paparazzi annoy them but reporters to question them. >>. bill: exclusivity the interviews are patty cake
12:08 pm
they will not grow them on substantive policy positions that the actors themselves have taken it not ou of the blue but somebody asked harrison ford is serious question about his own personal car been for pram. we would have to walk around spraying aerosol cans all day long just to keep up with his carbon footprint. john: you are an independent voting for republicans a democrats but that makes him very unusual.@ overwhelmingly days of four liberal democrats and obama certainly and that led to another pledge. >> to be of service to barack obama. >> i pledged to be of service to our presidents. >> and all mankind. together became and. john: dunne guess we can campaign. my book is titled "no they
12:09 pm
can't." i have a problem they say yes we can meaning individuals but president and obama of the means government and that is a dangerous idea. and you are not allowed to say things like that in hollywood. >> not allowed to disagree with hollywood. it is mind-boggling that things that come out of people's mouths they pushing employers did everything they push for does not have the fact on them. i have called with the big names i say you can afford to be a socialist you are worth $1 billion. john: you said that?

12:10 pm
taxes but well-connected celebrities are quick to use your tax dodges. >> owning acres of land in new jersey but pays only $100 of state property tax because he raises honeybees' he qualifies for the honeybee subsidy. bruce springsteen owns hundreds of acres of land but pays little tax because a an organic farmer works his land his pour neighbors pay more. >> i don't get anybody trying to lower taxes but bonn jovi and springsteen publicly supporting for obama holding rallies but then cry tax cuts for their riches and they robbed of poverty programs and a social contract with america being destroyed the middle-class is harmed but then you r those anti-poverty proams by
12:11 pm
calling yourself a former? that is the hypocrisy that is frustrating to see why i wrote the book calling of ese people on their duplicity. john: one final example some of the activists are so eager to promote anti- capitalist they glamorize people like bill ears -- bill ayers they killed people and bombed buildings and obama held a fund-raiser in bill ayers living room so robert redford came out with a movie based on the weather underground that the terrorists are on the run. >> we'd never be trade any of us all these years. >> i saw an interview with him about this movie he is behind it wanted to% it was
12:12 pm
the good thing. what kind of statement is that somebody that was blowing up buildings and hurting hundreds of people? i don't know. it is so screwed up a and sad to see what is going on it is strange to me. john: he invited me to sundance and he did not talk to me when i was there. [laughter] but he was there. there is a sliver of the open debate. >> just a sliver. john: and made me wish somebody would confront robert redford about this gimmick is a deplorable you glamorized the weather undergrod as a domestic terrorist? will you make a movie about e boston bomber's next? john: he never responded. >> no. his entourage surrounded me and would not let me get up close.
12:13 pm
but this goes beyond hypocrisy it is a human decency factor. it is one thing to make a movie about the weather underground terrorist but another thing to romanticize it to make get a heartfelt. a bank robbery that resulted in the murder of two police officers a and a security guard and now redford will make a movie that is essentially one big tribute? it is remarkably deplorable even by hollywood standards. john: thank you jason and kevin. please go to facebook or twitter to keep the conversation going and use that #hollywood and let people know what you think. more celebrity hy

12:20 pm
big houses. reason to be combined his video. >> i pledge to turn the lights off i would leave them on but i will turn them off. >> is the unaware of the hypocrisy? >> i just think he goes out on tour and has a carbon footprint of a third-world nation with the idea that that will make a difference even if you believe in the theory of man caused global warming it seems ludicrous. john: keystone pipeline some actors made a short film that makes it seem like the in the deal horror movie the family plays -- buys a new home. >> how beautiful? what is the catch? >> it is near the keystone pipeline.
12:21 pm
we need to leave. it will be okay. it will be okay. john: but this bad science is pushed in video by talented people. >> with you do something in a narrative form or a recognizable actress with a clever theme as you have said that looks like a horror movie and it is very effective. the people that flash the environmental agenda have a tremendous resource with celebrities who are willing to do this kind of video. john: americc's biggest environmental success is tracking for natural gas.

12:23 pm
actor about the hypocrisy but not one responded. hollywood makes millions selling stuff to us but at the same time they say the despise profit. >> it is a filthy word. >> reid. another word for this is the quicksilver cash back card from capital one. it's not the "juggle a bunch of rotating categories" card. it's not the "sign up for rewards each quarter" card. it's the no-games, no-messing-'round, no-earning-limit-having, do-i-look-ke-i'm-joking, turbo-boosting, heavyweight-champion- of-the-world cash back card. thiss the quicksilver cash back card from capital one. unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere, every single day now tell me, what's in your wallet?
