After Ricky Gervais roasted the hell out of the Hollywood elite by linking them to Jefferey Epstein and sweat shops, it should come as no surprise that these “important“ people (barf) were well protected:
“We are monitoring the events developing in Iran through our partnership with the local Joint Terrorism Task Force. Currently, there is no specific or credible threats to Beverly Hills nor the 77th Golden Globes Awards ceremony,” Capt. Michael Hill said in a statement to the Daily News.
“We have been planning for this event for six months, and public safety is our utmost priority,” he said.
“We have a robust security plan that includes assistance from our local, state, and federal law enforcement partners,” he said. “Additionally, we will be using the most
contemporary technologies in an attempt to ensure the ceremony is held without incident.”
Police and private security were already visible at the Beverly Hilton amid preparations for the annual awards show on Friday.
Yep. The Hollywood elite were safe and sound with taxpayer funded police as well as private security. These are the SAME PEOPLE that donate millions of dollars to make YOU disarmed though. Let’s see how with using March For Our Lives as an example. All we need to do is look at their foundation:
Andy Spahn, Who’s he?
Andy has spent more than 30 years in the entertainment, political, and nonprofit arenas. He has advised business and government leaders at the highest levels, and his counsel is sought by Fortune 100 executives, elected officials, and philanthropic organizations.
Before co-founding Gonring, Spahn & Associates in 2006, Andy served as the Head of Corporate Affairs and Communications for DreamWorks SKG, where he was the direct liaison to Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen in all work related to government and community relations, media, new business development, internal affairs, real estate, and all charitable and political matters.
Andy has been profiled in The Wall Street Journal, is recognized as one of the top Democratic fundraisers in the country, and was named one of the “Biggest Political Players” by The Hollywood Reporter as well as one of Politico’s “50 People to Watch.” He frequently serves as a trusted source of information to the national press corps on politics and philanthropy.
In 2009, Andy was appointed by U.S. President Barack Obama to the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. He has served as a National Finance Committee member for the Democratic National Committee, and as a member of the “Speaker’s Cabinet” for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. He also sits on the Board of the Geffen Playhouse and March For Our Lives.
Andy is a bundler for Hollywood donors. He basically tells them where to donate and spend their money (guess which party’s causes?). So, Hollywood gets to enjoy fortress like security and their own private security, but damnit, you shouldn't own an AR15 or a “Hi-Cap” magazine.
What else is interesting with Andy is the foreign connections. Wait, what‘s this?

From the July of 2019 LA Times article:
When then-Vice President Joe Biden hosted Chinese leader Xi Jinping for a five-day diplomatic blitz in 2012, a Hollywood Democratic mega-donor kept popping up with them.
There was Jeffrey Katzenberg, then the head of DreamWorks Animation, dining alongside Xi, the then-vice president of China, at a State Department welcome lunch in Washington. And there he was again, standing just behind Xi, then-Gov. Jerry Brown and then-Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa at a Lakers game in Los Angeles. And there was Katzenberg hanging out in a nearby hallway with Disney CEO Robert Iger to provide last-minute counsel as Biden closed a deal in which China committed to considerably expand its market for American films.
On the final day of Xi’s visit, Dreamworks announced Xi had signed off on the company’s own deal — the launching of Oriental DreamWorks, a $330-million joint venture with Chinese companies to develop and distribute animated films in China.
Several of the candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination have significant support in Hollywood — Katzenberg, for example, has kicked in $2,800 each to 14 of them already — but none has as long a history of delivering for the industry as Biden.
Not too hard to connect the dots there. Read further:
Biden’s campaign insists that his advocacy for the industry had no relationship to the industry’s political support.
“Protecting American intellectual property, opening new markets and ensuring better labor standards around the world is the job of any American administration. Vice President Biden has always been a fierce advocate for American industry throughout his career, including the film and television industry, which is one of our country’s major exports. The suggestion that his leadership on these issues was motivated by anything other than promoting good policy is ludicrous,” campaign press secretary T.J. Ducklo said in a statement.
Katzenberg advisors take exception to any suggestion the studio executive’s giving is related to White House access.
“This is pure fantasy,” said Andy Spahn, who has long advised Katzenberg on political involvement. “Jeffrey Katzenberg is supporting multiple candidates in the Democratic presidential primaries, and his politics have never been influenced by business interests.”
What’s NOT pure fantasy, Andy, is how your Dreamworks pals Jeffery Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg helped bankroll March For Our Lives:
Director Steven Spielberg and producer Jeffrey Katzenberg have pledged $500,000 each to the student-organized March For Our Lives imploring action on gun control.
The nationwide protest scheduled for March 24 is the brainchild of the Never Again movement organized by the student survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, and joined by students from across Florida and the United States.
All these elitist scumbags care about is power and money. You are nothing other than cattle to them. Hell, they’ll cut deals with the Chinese to stuff their own pockets, but god forbid you own a legally purchased AR-15. We gotta “do something“ about that....
I’m glad major Hollywood folks agree with Gun control though, as that’s what their newest market, China, wants (and the country’s communist party run press outlet):
SHANGHAI (Reuters) - The United States should learn from China and “genuinely” protect human rights by restricting gun ownership, an editorial in a widely read state-run Chinese newspaper said on Friday.
The editorial in the Global Times newspaper was published after a massacre at a high school in Florida last week, in which 17 students and staff were killed, reignited a long-running debate about gun control in the United States.
“Washington has been pointing an accusing finger at other countries over human rights ... However, more Americans have been killed by gunfire in the country than American soldiers being killed in all U.S. wars,” the Global Times said.
“Gun ownership in China is strictly regulated, which helps reduce gun-related crimes and deaths. The U.S. should learn from China and genuinely protect human rights,” it said.
Human rights have long been a source of tension between the world’s two largest economies, especially since 1989, when the United States imposed sanctions on China after a bloody crackdown on pro-democracy demonstrators around Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.
The Global Times, a hawkish news outlet run by the ruling Communist Party’s top propaganda organ, the People’s Daily, called it “inhumane” to turn a blind eye to gun violence after the shooting at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
The shooting that brought us March For Our Lives. Go figure!
