Iconic rock star Mick Jagger joined actor Donald Sutherland in slamming President Trump over climate change while presenting his film The Burnt Orange Heresy at the Venice Film Festival. He accused Trump of wiping out environmental controls and feeding into polarization across the board. He also proclaimed that the United States was derelict in its duty in leading the environmental movement across the globe and placed the blame squarely on the Trump administration. What poppycock.
“We are in a very difficult situation at the moment, especially in the U.S., where all the environmental controls that were put in place — that were just about adequate — have been rolled back by the current administration so much that they are being wiped out,” the 76-year-old rocker said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sutherland, 85, is in full agreement on this climate insanity.
“The U.S. should be the world leader in environmental control but now it has decided to go the other way,” Mick Jagger lamented, adding that he is “absolutely behind” the recent efforts of climate change activists. “I’m absolutely behind that,” Jagger said. “I’m glad they’re doing that because they’re the ones who are going to inherit the planet.” He’s pandering to a younger generation who he wants to buy his music and films and idolize him. It’s shameful.
Jagger added that he believes societal values have changed — “We are going through a very strange time at the minute. And when you live at a strange time you know it’s a strange time but you don’t know what’s going to happen. Values are different. There’s more polarization and less civility.” Yep, and it’s coming from the left.
“Donald Sutherland, Jagger’s co-star, agreed, suggesting that the Trump administration is playing a part in “ruining the world.”
“Mick is right when he said the reforms that were instituted during the Obama administration were barely adequate, and now they’re being torn about,” the Hunger Games actor said.
“When you’re my age, when you’re 85 years old and you have children and grandchildren, you will leave them nothing if we don’t vote those people out of office in Brazil in London in Washington,” Sutherland said. “They are ruining the world. We have contributed to the ruination of it, but they are ensuring it.”
“Jagger also decried the “incivility of political life” in the U.S. and around the world.
“I’m not sure I was always against civility, but when you see it now the incivility of political life which we see in so many countries including my own, especially this last week— and in other countries, particularly the U.S.— when you see this, it’s a bit of a sea change from what you were used to,” he said.
“I don’t mean that manners are everything. But the combination of all these things, where it’s going to lead us … polarization, rudeness and lying,” he added.”
Obviously, both of these guys — long past their salad days — hate Trump and think he is ruining and dooming the world… or so they say. Both of these men are also for Brexit and open borders by the way. They are wealthy leftist elitists so take what they preach with a boulder of salt. They support the progressives staying in power and the Marxists who wish to retain control… not just in America, but in London and Brazil as well.
Trump isn’t ruining the world… old school radicals and cultural icons who stand against freedom and what is right are what is dooming these countries. Mick Jagger sees ‘Sympathy for the Devil’ when he looks in the mirror these days.
