New Hollywood Blacklist: Chris Evans and Zach Braff Encourage Keeping Track of Trump ‘Enablers’

Posted on 20 November 2020

Probably nobody these days listens to Gilbert and Sullivan’s music, but the few who might may possibly remember the song, “As Some Day It May Happen,” where the lord high executioner details the people on his list that he’ll execute in case he should have to carry out his official duties. Apparently, some Hollywood residents approve of Americans who imitate the song.  Actors Zach Braff and Chris Evans expressed on Twitter a determination to remember the supporters of President Donald Trump, since apparently his actions are all their fault.  Zach Braff, who is famous for his role in the medical comedy show Scrubs, tweeted on November 18, “Never forget all these enablers.”  These are seriously angry people with vengeance on their minds. Why else would they want to  “never forget all these enablers?” Because, obviously, since certain people voted Trump into office, they are responsible for letting Trump kill 250,000 Americans with COVID-19. They are responsible for putting a white supremacist who supports the Proud Boys in the White House. They are responsible for everything that’s wrong with America, and rightly so. Horseradish. Braff is just one of those countless leftists who are furious that Trump won in 2016 and still hasn’t conceded in 2020. Those kinds of people need someone to vent their unlimited rage upon. But by doing so himself, Braff is encouraging anger and resentment in a country that has too much of both already. Chris Evans, who is famous for his portrayal of Captain America in Marvel Cinematic Universe films, tweeted similar sentiments on November 19: “#RememberWhoSaidNothing” It’s highly reasonable to assume that this vague tweet is referring to the Americans who voted for Trump, especially the GOP members who are not urging Trump to concede nor resisting his more conservative policy points. “Remember who said nothing?” What is this, is Evans trying to make Trump voters enemies of the state? Is he encouraging big brother government, where machines spy on people who have been labeled as “dangerous” every day to monitor their every action? Didn’t Evans condemn stuff like that in his titular role in Captain America: The Winter Soldier? He’s starting to make Trump voters sound like accomplices to a crime. Who else is wondering if that was intended? Evans is just another ill-disciplined actor who can’t control his temper. Consequently, he’s egging on an already volatile leftist base to engage in behavior that threatens the safety of right-wingers. He should take a lesson from his most famous film role.  Or a lesson from Hollywood history. Who could forget the infamous Hollywood Blacklist in the years after World War II? How long until people are demanded to answer, "Are you now, or have you ever been, a supporter of President Donald J. Trump?" Both actors' tweets may encourage people to start making lists, but right-wingers don’t need a list to remember these two as first-rate haters.
