Guardians of the Galaxy star and all-around good guy Christ Pratt can’t so much as sneeze without Twitter blue-checks forming a mob to show hate against him with publications joining in as much as possible.
Despite the hate, many in America can’t get enough of Pratt. Be it his acting chops to his personality, Pratt fills theater seats and wins hearts. The left can’t stand it, but why?
Joe Rogan, another very popular guy hated by the left, pointed out the obvious during an episode of his podcast.
Rogan made it clear that many in Hollywood don’t actually believe in the leftist nonsense they seem to support, they just have to be seen as doing so in order to not get blacklisted. He noted that Pratt didn’t follow that directive and that’s why people are coming after him.
A lot of it boils down to the fact that he’s Christian, as Rogan points out.
“He’s kind of outside the lines in terms of his ideology,” Rogan said. “He’s a Christian and he’s pretty open about it, and because of that, they attack him. It’s something so simple like he just believes in Jesus and he like, you know, he likes to be a good person and they’re like ‘f*** him!’”
Rogan made it clear that he doesn’t care what people say about him because he knows Pratt personally and knows he’s the nicest guy he’s ever met. He also labeled the people who throw hate at him as “insane.”
This is all true, but I’d like to take this a bit further.
It’s not just because Pratt is a Christian and a nice guy, it’s because Pratt is a threat to the status quo of Hollywood. The left wants the biggest stage in the world completely clear of influences that threaten the left’s narrative, including Christian and pro-American messaging which Pratt openly supports.
They’ve spent a very long time making patriotism seem out of vogue and possibly even nefarious, and here’s Pratt threatening all of that just by being likable.
To the left, Pratt isn’t a nuisance, he’s dangerous.
So they drag his name through the mud, attempt to pass him off as either a try-hard goober or just plain evil in order to make him unlikeable and thus make studios refuse to give him roles. The hope is that they cancel him by forcing him to fade out of existence until he finally comes a has-been that people can laugh at.
So far, America hasn’t allowed that to happen. They keep showing up to whatever project he’s in and, what’s more, his fellow co-stars and colleagues keep saying the nicest things about him in his defense.
To be clear, a lot of the hate being shown toward Pratt is happening on Twitter, and as Dave Chappelle so accurately pointed out, it’s not a real place. In fact, it’s curated to lean left to a great degree making the hatred toward Pratt actually seem bigger than it is. Rest assured, Pratt is pretty beloved and the box office numbers show it.
It only highlights the aforementioned insanity of the left, but for the left it’s always been narrative over everything else.
