Han Solo: Kooky, Arrogant Moonbat?

By Wyatt Earp | May 4, 2010

Remember when we were young and thought that sports stars and actors were idols and/or role models? Then we started to learn a lot more about the people that were the subject of our hero worship. Sometimes – in the case of Cal Ripken, Jr. – the worship is justified. Sometimes – in the case of Harrison Ford – you realize that he is just like every other Hollywood moonbat.

Ford, who owns several airplanes, was questioned about the wrath the hippies have thrust upon him for his murder of Mother Earth. Sounds like the makings of some good hippie smiting, right?

Eh, not so much:

Ford spoke on Capitol Hill on Tuesday about general aviation at an event sponsored by the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association. In light of criticism Ford has received from environmentalists about his use of airplanes, asked him if his environmental activism coupled with his flying was a “contradiction.”

Ford said, “They’re quite right. I’ll start walking everywhere when they start walking everywhere.”

Okay, maybe I am reading too much into this, but it seems to me that Ford is one of those “Do as I say, and not as I do” liberals. And while he directed his snark toward the hippies, I have no doubt that he would say the same thing to the rest of us. After all, he is an important celebrity, and we’re simply the proletariat.

Meh. I liked him a whole lot better when he shot Greedo first.

    I liked him alot better when he was in that black stasis slab.

    I liked and respected him better before he started dating the celery stick, Calista Flockhart and when he said that Roman Polanski had suffered enough.

    There was a time in the mid ’80’s through the mid ’90’s when I would see every Harrison Ford film that came out within a week of it’s release. These include: “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”, “Presumed Innocent” and even the touchy, feely, “Regarding Henry”. Now, I won’t even check out his films from our local library.

    Jon – Heh, nice reference!

    Ferrell – I saw every one of those films at least once. I like Ford enough to still see his films despite his moonbattery, but it irks me that he is such a libtard anymore.

    “He directed his snark toward the hippies.” That’s all you need to know. I can tell you from personal experience he’s not a hippie, nor is he being contradictory by owning small airplanes.

    Small planes are extremely valuable business tools, and the CO2 from ALL of the General Aviation sector accounts for less than 2% of transportation output. Their worth is far, far beyond their expense. The enviro-wackos would love for everyone to drive rubber-band powered skateboards, but that plan doesn’t recognize reality.

    Harrison Ford was basically reminding the CNS reporter and the more loony environmentalists of these facts. Besides, taxpayers didn’t fund his airplane in any way. His success and hard work did.

    This is a guy who recognizes that there are certainly ways our nation can be more environmentally responsible, but who also understands the realities of economic and business needs. I think he’s a pretty smart guy.

    BTW, did you know that Ford has performed two mountain rescues in his helicopter — by himself and on his own dime?

    This doesn’t seem to be the work of one of Hollywood’s typical hypocritical figures. This guy actually puts his life on the line sometimes.

    As long as he does what he wants on his own dime, I don’t give a rat’s behind about it. When he does an Algore and tells us to give stuff up while not doing so himself, he can go pound sand.

    I would agree he is not one those total moonbat enviro whackos but I do remember a couple of years ago flying his helicopter to the Academy Awards and then renting a Prius. Now that to me was BS. I would have showed up in a Tahoe or lincoln navigator myself smoking a cigar.

    Buck – I’ll have to remember that the next time I’m lost near his ranch.

    Robbie – Me too. Oh, I’ve said too much.

    Mrs. Crankipants – Well, compared to Richard Dreyfuss . .

    Bob – Al Gore: Nature’s biggest joke.

    Ralph – While wearing a baby seal coat.

    JT – See? I could never do that.

    Roger – The original trilogy is so much better than the sequel drek.
