Pat Sajak Sick of Liberal Celebrities Like Jimmy Kimmel Running Their Mouths–Shut Them Out With.


Some of “Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak’s comments have gone viral — and they’re sparking controversy.
Throughout the year, Sajak has repeatedly made subtle jabs at the more liberal celebrities in Hollywood, raising eyebrows.
After Jimmy Kimmel made an emotional plea for gun control following October’s Las Vegas massacre, Sajak quickly mocked the TV host on Twitter, Western Journalism reports.
“OK, let me explain this again: We’re celebs,” Sajak tweeted. “We’re wiser & more empathetic than you. We are famous. Please take our opinions more seriously.”


But it’s just one of the many times Sajak has sarcastically derided liberal celebrities.
After the Golden Globes awards show in January, in which many blasted then-President-elect Donald Trump, Sajak again tweeted criticism, reports CNN.
“Looking forward to the next awards show/lecture,” Sajak wrote, after actress Meryl Streep gave a speech implicitly denouncing the president.
“Nobody abhors violence more than Hollywood, and nobody does more to glorify it,” he added in a separate comment.

He again took to Twitter during the inauguration protests.
“Unhappy about results of last week’s People’s Choice Awards,” he wrote. “Thinking of breaking Starbucks windows & trashing limos.”
“I wonder if the celebrities who moved out of the country will return for the demonstrations,” read another of his comments.
Sajak’s comments quickly sparked uproar online.
“Sorry Pat but I think less of you if you are really pleased with the Trump presidency,” wrote one person in All That’s News’ comments section. “He is really out of his element and pretty scary.”
Others thought it was unfair of Sajak to criticize other celebrities, arguing they have a right to free speech like everyone else.
“Last time I checked…they are constituents too,” argued another. “They live in this country so they have a stake in what the president does. They deserve to speak their opinions just like you and I. Their opinions are no more important than yours or mine they just have more visibility and a bigger platform because they are famous. That doesn’t mean they should have to be quiet and take it.”
Others disagreed and ardently supported Sajak’s stance.
“They have a right in their circles on their time,” commented one reader. “Not mine. If I go to a concert or a play or a sporting event the I PAY to see which pays their big salaries they have no right to offer me entertainment for money and then ruin my night with what I consider to be their idiotic views.”


CBS News Reported:
“Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak is trying to extinguish the firestorm he sparked on Twitter earlier this week with a tweet about climate change.
It all began with a tweet taking aim at “global warming alarmists” — calling them “unpatriotic racists.”
I now believe global warming alarmists are unpatriotic racists knowingly misleading for their own ends. Good night.

More than 1,800 people “favorited” the tweet, and more than 2,000 have retweeted it, a small fraction of his more than 54,000 followers. While his supporters loved it, the tweet also sparked an immediate backlash.
Salon.com posted an article blasting Sajak for “throwing wild allegations of racism against the overwhelming majority of scientists.” The post noted that Sajak has written a series of blog posts for a conservative website called Human Events. One of the articles was titled, “Opposed to Obamacare? Then You Must be a Racist.”
In another of the posts, he said he is a “Conservative Republican delighted with the disarray on the Democratic side.” Many conservatives have depicted climate change as a ruse created by liberals and alarmists.
In a Human Events post from 2007, Sajak offered the clearest indication of his thoughts on climate change and the debate that surrounds it.
“The subject of man-made global warming is almost impossible to discuss without a descent into virulent name-calling (especially on the Internet, where anonymity breeds a special kind of vicious reaction to almost any social or political question), but I’ll try anyway.”
