United Talent Agency (UTA), a top talent agency in Hollywood, will host a refugee rally in place of its annual Oscar party this year.
The big change to host a rally instead of the party was announced by UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer, who informed the staff in a letter this week, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"The company — home to big-name clients like Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Mariah Carey, Toby Keith and dozens of others — also plans to donate $250,000 to the American Civil Liberties Union," reports Breitbart, "which has worked to oppose President Donald Trump’s executive order temporarily prohibiting immigration from seven countries, and to the International Rescue Committee."
In the letter, Zimmer reportedly told his staff that America will "cease" if artists like themselves don't express their opinion openly – their left-wing opinion, that is. Zimmer expressed no support for dissenting views, expressly making any member of UTA who doesn't share his political stance feel unwelcome. Ironic, isn't it?
"This is a moment that demands our generosity, awareness and restlessness," Zimmer wrote. "Our world is a better place for the free exchange of artists, ideas and creative expression. If our nation ceases to be the place where artists the world over can come to express themselves freely, then we cease, in my opinion, to be America."
THR also noted that Ari Emanuel, co-CEO of mega-agency WME-IMG, told staff in an email on Wednesday that the company would be "forming a political action committee, though it wasn’t immediately clear on what the PAC would focus."
"This company’s greatest asset is the diversity of our backgrounds and beliefs," Emanuel wrote to the agency. "Please know that we will do everything in our power to support and protect this diversity now and in the months and years ahead."
The left keeps using that word "diversity." We do not think they know what it means.
