What a hater.
Ben Affleck, who recently was cast as the next “Batman,” told Playboy he can’t watch a Republican actor perform.
Larry Elder at World Net Daily reported:
Democratic fundraiser/actor Ben Affleck – and the next big-screen “Batman” – recently gave an interview to Playboy. His own bias against Republicans, he admits, prevents him from fully enjoying a Republican actor’s performance. “It’s … hard,” said Affleck, “to get people to suspend disbelief.”

Affleck said: “When I watch a guy I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him, or we would have different opinions. That (bleep) fogs the mind when you should be paying attention and be swept into the illusion.”
Fair enough. But how do you think conservatives feel?
Nearly every actor who cuts loose about politics, let alone campaigns for or donates to causes or politicians, almost always supports Democrats and liberal causes. Nothing wrong with this. But it’s not even close to a fair fight. Of America’s stars – old, young and in-between – the many who speak out are invariably Democrats.
A Clint Eastwood is more than offset by the many performers like Cher, who said: “If you’re black in this country, if you’re a woman in this country, if you are any minority in this country at all, what could possibly possess you to vote Republican? … You won’t have one f–-ing right left.” Or like Julia Roberts, who said, “Republican comes in the dictionary just after ‘reptile’ and just above ‘repugnant.’” Or Ed Asner, from Disney’s film “Up,” who contributed his name and voice to a cartoon political ad showing a dastardly rich man literally urinating on the poor.
