The fact that the Taliban have run roughshod over Afghanistan in practically the same instant that the American soldiers left is horrifying and heartbreaking, particularly for the innocent Afghans who helped the U.S. and now have to live under brutal Islamic rule because the Biden administration didn't have a plan to get them out safely. But, of course, such a tragedy is perfect fodder for Hollywood leftists to use against their real enemy, American conservatives.
Several of Hollywood's most insane and ridiculous mouthpieces, Rosanna Arquette, Michael Moore and Stephen Colbert, pointed to the Taliban as they took over Afghanistan and said, “Wow, those are some evil bastards. You know who is evil like them? American Trump supporters.” Yup. What wise takes.
Bowling For Columbine documentary filmmaker and far left madman Michael Moore couldn’t help himself from beating up on Trump supporters even in the midst of a tragedy like the fall of Kabul, Afghanistan. Moore shared two photos to his Twitter page on August 17, one with the Taliban having conquered the Afghan government and the other with – can you guess? – several of the Trump supporters from the Capitol Riot. Oh, what a surprise!
In a caption for the post, the plus-size Hollywood lefty wrote, “Their Taliban, our Taliban, everybody’s got a Taliban. They’re at their best when they confiscate the halls of power.” Yeah. Even with the Middle East in disarray and the tragedy of hundreds of thousands of Afghans being left at the mercy of bloodthirsty Islamic radicals, all Moore can do is smear conservatives.

It’s clear that nothing can distract him from his hatred for Trump supporters. Great job, Mr. Moore, you look like a massive a-hole for the umpteenth time.
And, of course, who could forget Rosanna Arquette’s gross characterization of the GOP as the Taliban. On August 15, the Pulp Fiction actress tweeted, “The Taliban extremists are here in America just with a different name … the GOP right-wing extremists who support destroying democracy are the Terrorists in America.”
What a brilliant bit of rhetoric. Call people you politically disagree with the Taliban. Hey, at least it’s a bit of a shake up from the usual smears of “NAZI!” or “FASCIST!” Republicans usually get from Hollywood. Kudos to Ms. Arquette for something less cliché.

She added that the GOP Taliban “will continue to terrorize America until they are stopped and pay for their crimes against Americans Jan 6th.” Ah, we see. So, our GOP should be dealt with like Taliban terrorists, huh? Though, considering that the Taliban were given free, state-of-the-art U.S. military equipment, control of the Afghan government and a bunch of new slaves to do their every whim, it’s not too bad being a Taliban soldier from their perspective.
In all seriousness, though, shame on the actress for comparing GOP leaders to people who enslave women and murder innocent civilians in their own countries.
In addition to these two whack jobs, Hollywood talk show host Stephen Colbert made the same comparison on his August 16 show. During the segment, he referred to Capitol rioters, quipping, “Why should our soldiers be fighting radicals in a civil war in Afghanistan? We've got our own on Capitol Hill.” Very nice, guys. Does that mean you all reserve the right to hunt us down like terrorists?
