One of the things that can help reshape American politics is getting celebrities to shut the fuck up about politics.

It’s pretty arrogant to think he, a “Geriatric Millennial” can communicate with Gen Z because .., Captain America? Gen Z is wary enough about Millennials and the woke contingent isn’t exactly asking for an ostensibly straight white man to tell them what to think

I will never understand the narrow minded and usually deeply ignorant people who constantly whine that celebrities shouldn't get involved in politics, as if they are just puppets and not people, and they cannot possibly have anything useful to contribute beyond their job. Bizarre to me.
You don't know him, the work and education he's done outside of his acting career, and regardless of that he is using his fame and public platform for a positive thing and you're still trying to tear him down? Fuck all the way back to the gutter, trashbags.

Are celebrities not also citizens? Are they not allowed to have political opinions? Should they be prohibited from advocating for a policy position or a cause? Should politics and advocacy be limited only to anonymous posters on some obscure gay gossip board?

If you read the article, I don't know how you get to that. It doesn't really focus on Evans that much, nor does it offer "spin control on his image". The article is primarily about engaging with Gen Z as a voting block and meeting those young voters where they are via social media outside of Facebook and Twitter (which they are less likely to use). It discusses Evans' "A Starting Point" project as one such platform to reach Gen Z. But it doesn't make him out to be "a goody two shoes" or the savior of American democracy.
I'm just having a hard time understanding why Evans should be demonized, minimized or ridiculed for advocating that politicians take Gen Z seriously and work for their votes. If this project had been started by some unknown person, would it have made it more acceptable to you? Is it just his celebrity that automatically makes it unacceptable?
It's important to get younger voters active as they are more likely to be more progressive in their politics. "But if a celebrity like Chris Evans is leading the charge, fuck that shit."

Oh, I see. Since he was once a big deal on screen, that forever prohibits him from doing anything that might possibly improve the political environment in the US.
Stay in your lane, Chris. And let they "experts" on some random gay gossip board do the heavy lifting. After all, you can't possibly be more motivated, knowledgeable, or equipped with more resources than a bunch of shut-ins who can't even keep all of their sock puppets straight.

I question the sincerity of most celebrities when it comes to doing things like this. I don’t think that he is politically savvy enough to do this on his own. His handlers are probably hiring people to help him with this. I can’t believe that he’s doing it out of the goodness of his heart either.
|by Anonymous||reply 36||Last Wednesday at 9:36 AM|
Well I mean given that 3 in 10 Republicans now believe Trump will be reinstated, I think we can say that a moderating, “both sides” approach is hardly an appropriate response to the current crisis in democracy

It’s not who he is it’s who he is not. His family is not rich. His family doesn’t have connections to everyone else trying to be rich.
Chris is a genetically gifted individual who has opinions that rightfully belong only to rich people who are unfortunate looking. He has not experienced the formative incel past of most dork politicians that creates such willfully ignorant tone deaf policy.
He does not have the self interest needed to be taken seriously.
|by Anonymous||reply 38||Last Wednesday at 9:40 AM|
My personal problem with his sincerity is that this project takes almost no risk and no advocacy, and does not acknowledge that the very real political crisis we are facing is due to the poisonous culture of modern Republicanism. This is the equivalent of those posters of a celebrity advocating reading a book at the library.

We have a large number of moron Americans who think that anecdotal evidence, "research" on YouTube or a linked article from a biased, no-name publication that's an OP-ed masquerading as a scientific research written by a wackjob whose lost their credentials and/or been arrested for fraudulent actions as PROOF of whatever they believed before they started looking into the issue so if Chris Evan's wants to create a social media site to help increase media literacy I am ALL FOR IT because we are a nation of social media retards.
|by Anonymous||reply 41||Last Wednesday at 9:44 AM|
So you question his sincerity not based on any real knowledge of who Chris Evans truly is or what might really motivate him. It's purely a matter of your gut feeling that a celebrity is only motivated by his own celebrity.
To be honest, I couldn't care less about his motivation. If his project can have even a tiny impact on turning this country from the destructive path it's on, it's a good thing and I can get behind it.

He could use his fame and public platform to give actual young people, who are more relevant and certainly much smarter, the opportunity to express their views instead of him expressing his. There’s no good reason at all for him to be the one talking, ever, and definitely not about anything important.

He's not expressing his views with "A Starting Point", R47. It's a non-partisan FACT BASED way of educating young people on the process of our government. Because our country's school system doesn't teach history or civics any longer and so many Americans get their "facts" from tained "news" sources. His personal twitter contains his views on myriad things (and that beautiful cock pic) but ASP is non-partisan.
