He’s an actor, martial artist, director, producer and comedian, among other things. He’s taken advantage of the many opportunities America affords to make a wonderful living, gain fame and fortune and apparently a stage to triple down on the stupid.
Like many ungrateful Hollywood douchenozzles, Chan is spewing anti-American rhetoric, even as he enjoys the freedoms and opportunities this nation provides. Even as he makes millions owing to the very same freedoms he reviles, he criticizes Taiwan and Hong Cong as an example of what happens when a nation has too much freedom. Yes, this rancid, hypocritical shitbag is an advocate of government control, a la China.
It’s amazing anyone takes him seriously, right?
Well, apparently enough people do, because his latest rant claims the United States is “the most corrupt country in the world.”
“If you talk about corruption, the entire world – America – has no corruption?” said the actor.
He went on to say America is “the most corrupt [country] in the world” – not China. “Where does this great breakdown [of corruption] come from? It started exactly from the [rest of the] world, the United States …
I took a look at Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index for 2012 today. I wanted to make sure I had my facts straight, before slamming Jackie Chan as a smarmy piece of anti-American shit whose products need to be boycotted by any American who actually loves this country, and who should stay the fuck in China, since he hates the U.S. so much. I wanted to make sure that the United States wasn’t the most corrupt country in the world! Just in case. After all… I’ve been railing against government corruption as long as I’ve been blogging.
Well, imagine my “surprise” when the CPI listed the United States as the 19th LEAST corrupt nation in the world, behind such nations as Germany, New Zealand, Denmark (the least corrupt nation in the world, according to this index) and Australia.
And yet Jackie Chan has the uninformed and ignorant temerity to claim the U.S. – a nation that has been an integral part of his acting and martial arts success – is more corrupt than third-world shitholes such as Lesotho (#64) and Zambia (#68).
We’ve seen a spate of celebutards in recent months, spout off in the most ignorant fashion about subjects they’re wholly unqualified to speak with any amount of legitimacy. We had some dumb bitch of whom barely anyone has ever heard until she made an Obama ad, comparing a vote for Teh Won™ to losing one’s virginity. We’ve had a horde of celebutard hypocrites make ads encouraging you to demand gun control from your arrogant, entitled legislators, even as they make millions from violent movies where they wield and successfully use guns more regularly than any gun owner in this nation.
Jackie Chan is just another in a long line of dimwitted ignorants who spouts nonsense without knowledge and thinks his fame entitles him to credibility.
Let’s hope Americans are too smart to fall for his tripe and send him packing to irrelevancy.
