Prominent actors, writers and thinkers joined a "Stop Hate Dump Trump" campaign to denounce the billionaire Republican presidential frontrunner, saying he is a threat to the United States.

Actors Harry Belafonte, Kerry Washington and Jane Fonda, filmmaker Jonathan Demme and intellectual Noam Chomsky are among those lending their support to the drive to prevent Donald Trump getting into the White House.

"We are offering Americans a chance to be heard and engage in action, as Trump's campaign gains momentum even as he increases his hateful and divisive rhetoric," said playwright Eve Ensler, one of three cofounders.

"We also intend to put the media and political institutions on notice that they are accountable for normalizing Trump's extremism by treating it as entertainment, by giving it inordinate and unequal air time and by refusing to investigate, interrogate or condemn it appropriately."

She should of been dealt with during Viet Nam instead of our liberal government allowing her to come back here. She should of been kicked out of the county. And Trump has enough money to deal with those people

Boy Levin, Beck, Fonda, Dole, Hatch, democrats, PURE CONSERVATIVES are all ganging up on Trump that is quite a coalition.

Levin has been accused of providing 'Talk Radio' support for Trump. Levin isn't ganging up on Trump. However, recently he has voiced his objection to the underhanded Cruz comments. He also objects to Trump's expanding the Ethanol boondoggle. That's one of the reasons you're seeing the GOP establishment changing their minds about Trump. That's NOT a good sign IMHO. 

I ask, What happened to the anti-establishment Donald Trump that got him the HUGE popularity? Who's anti-establishment now? Certainly NOT him if he's choosing to negotiate DEALS with the RINOs. DC doesn't need deal makers, we've had enough of that capitulation crap for 7 years.

Three "artists" who will never, ever, ever again be played in my home. Harry - you are a SOB! I listened to you in college, my husband sent me your Christmas album in 1973 - but now - you are never again part of my life. You "artists" need to realize that your legacy is not just musical. It is your sanity - and you are all insane!

Will that dumb"B" ever get anything right

Hanoi Jane is the one who needs to be dumped - -how about deep-six-in-cement-shoes!

Who cares what that washed up b***h says?

He was right about Hollywood long ago. John Wayne and a few others were the only ones that weren't communists. In the Book Dupes written after the fall of the USSR when the KGB files were opened for all to see. It was discovered just how deep the infection of communism was in Hollywood. It, communism, is still very active there and controls what is done and said there. NEVER trust Hollywood when it inserts itself into politics. People should do as they did with Tarantino. Show how we feel with our wallets. Boycott them. That's the only way to hurt these traitors in Hollywood.

Their flag will be the red flag with a hammer and  cycle.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
