It’s certainly hard if you’re Russell Crowe. Last October, the volatile actor lashed out at Obama detractors. Today, he set his sights on the Sydney Daily Telegraph:

https://twitter.com/russellcrowe/status/297365631328735232

He’s really sticking it to the Telegraph! And … climate change deniers?

What other advice have you got for us, Russell?

https://twitter.com/russellcrowe/status/297371812516487168

A fair point.

https://twitter.com/russellcrowe/status/297372075461586944

But not as valuable a tool as you, Russell.

OK then.

    I can’t stand him, or indeed any Australians. They are all descended from British convicts. We shipped them over there for raping and murdering!

      Oo gee whiz… such an intelligent comment.

    • DSmith

      I must have been asleep when we met and you decided you couldn’t stand me, it will also come as a surprise to my grandparents that they are British convicts considering they arrived here not speaking a word of English. Oh and just in case you hadn’t shown yourself to be a fool already, try Google, Crowe is actually from New Zealand, but I am assuming you have learnt about facts from your fellow Brit Piers.

  • jermsguy

    Is he wrong about “humiliations as news”?

    • Leroy Whitby

      He’s miseducated and probably spends more time jetting around to hotspots than learning or educating himself, but he’s being real. That’s more than we can say about the lib politicians, who know that they are lying and corrupt.

      • BitOfFluff3

        Russell is more into working and spending time with his sons than “jetting around to hot spots”. And you’re right, he IS being real. He let some real emotion fly. He probably let it build up and finally just let go. Politicians – maybe one in 10 can be trusted, and I’m being generous.

    • BitOfFluff3

      No, Mr. Crowe is quite correct. It’s rampant. How often do we read something really horrific about a celebrity where there is “our source”? Who exactly is the source? Most likely it’s just the writer thinking that term will make people believe the nasty things he/she is about to write.

  • Leroy Whitby

    Climate change? People still believe that crap?

    • Bob Smooper

      It’s a global conspiracy. 90% of the world’s scientists are just commies who hate us.

      • Leroy Whitby

        If the science was good they wouldn’t have to falsify the data: http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/feb/01/leaked-emails-climate-jones-chinese

          Shhhh, you’ll scare him away with the facts!!! Its rare we get to study trolls like Mark Cooper in their natural feeding ground! if we’re lucky we can tranq and tag him so we can follow his migration patterns!

      • SineWaveII

        You still believe that “90% of scientists” nonsense? I think it’s time to put your brain back into the docking station.

      • BitOfFluff3

        Yeah! I’ll bet they personally went to the polar ice-caps and melted them with their hair-driers just to fool us.

        • Teresa Davis McCormick

          that has been said sooo many times. It’s neither witty or new.

        • http://pennyrobinsonfanclub.net/ PennyRobinsonFanClub

          You need to look at the pictures. They are not melting. No more than they have at any other time in history. Would you like to see newspaper stories stretching back more than a hundred years reporting the “extraordinary” melting of the poles?

          When you discover that all of the data provided by the global warming alarmists has been skewed by leaving out the data from the higher elevations, you realize that we haven’t had any warming in 15 years. In addition, global warming and cooling has been going on forever, long before anything man-made could have caused it.

        • origionalwinja

          LOL yeah in their corporate jets. if they believed the bullshit that you fell for they would be teleconferencing not flying around in super expensive jets. polar ice caps are also NOT melting lol fool check the data yourself sometime

        not really, 100% of all scientists with ZERO dissent agree unanimously climate change and global warming are a hoax. just the libtard psudoscientists try and push that garbage

        they don’t hate us, they are just sheeple who follow the Master.. You seem to use the “hate” word alot though..

      Only the ones with 3-digit IQ’s. Guess that would exclude you.

      • Catchance

        That’s odd… the people who read HuffPo don’t also tend to read other scientific journals. You should try it. Oh, wait. 3-digit IQ’s. Never mind.

      • origionalwinja

        zero zero zero is the only three digit IQ a liberal has. same as the globalwarming hoaxers.

    • Frank Drebin

      Not only do they believe…

      Center for American Progress’ Christie Hefner (Hugh Hefner’s daughter) blames “climate change”, at least in part, for the rise in Chicago’s murder rate.

      “Yes, last year we hit a record number of murders from guns [in
      Chicago],” Hefner, the former chairwoman and chief executive officer of
      Playboy Enterprises, said. “And this year we are already outpacing last
      year’s numbers. Now, there are contributing factors that are not under
      anybody’s control and may seem odd, but it is factually true. One of
      them is actually the weather. There is a dramatic increase in gun
      violence when it is warmer. And we are having this climate change effect
      that is driving that.”

      • Scott Smith

        I was in Chicago recently, it was 4° out and people still got murdered. Explain that ?

    • Bob Smooper

      Gravity? People still believe that crap?

      • origionalwinja

        gravity is easily proven, global warming has already been proven a hoax. there is ZERO data supporting it. pull your head out of your ass

      • lainer51

        try floating down the stairs, it might show you gravity is real…. global warming, not so much, it is 3 degrees in Pennsylvania !!!!

        From the Mail Online: “Even Russell, who gets the Pierce Brosnan award for Most Tuneless Performance in a Musical, can be very affecting. ‘I don’t understa-a-a-nd,’ he sings at one point. That makes two of us, bud.”
        From TaylorMarsh.com: “The audience is made to sit through wrenching song after song where Crowe’s Javert plods along trying to make note after note, while taking breaths and breaking up phrases that make any musical performer want to weep.”

        You notice that I didn’t mention Adam Lambert.

    So, some observations…

    At least his name fits. Crows squawk a lot and so does Crowe.

    He’s a high school drop out (at age 16) squawking about the importance of education?

  • Steve_J

    Understand this, you have a right to your opinion just like everyone else. Beyond that I don’t give a **** what you say.

  • Jackbee33

    Education is the power they all say, but they never ask who is educating. I don’t think it’s any different in colleges today than when it comes to infotainment on tv. The so-called educators are telling you what to think rather than HOW to think. How else do you explain all these so-called enlightened people who have the exact same remedy for dealing with climate change. Let the govt. take more rights and usurp more authority over the individual rather than finding a solution that preserves the dignity of the individual. What’s a lost art in modern society is thinking for yourself and questioning everything.

    In related news, as soon as Crowe finished his tweets condemning public humilation, he threw his iphone at a group of school kids, then stripped naked and ran down the street jumping on the hoods of cars.

        no you dumb ass, he hasnt. he has been handed everything on a silver plater just like all the other hollywood libtards. work is a forgien concept to these idiots. all the do is pretend for money. shouldnt you be in the kitchen? women everywhere facepalm every time you comment.

    hey russell. which one is it? if you actually learn about the climate, you would know climate change is a hoax.

    • BitOfFluff3

      And you won’t believe in climate change till it sneaks up and bites you in the butt. Seen photos of the polar ice-caps lately?

      • peteee363

        no but i read some of the hacked e-mails coming out of east anglia. and i read how they used a formula to create the hockey stick. i have also read where in the 1300’s there is written proof the temperatures were far warmer then today. but you keep drinking that kool-aid, and keep thinking global whatever they call it is not about more wealth redistribution. by the way, how is paying more taxes going to appease the global warming gods?

        • Catchance

          Why, didn’t you know? That well-know scientist Algore just pays more to make up the difference in his carbon footprint. You say that doesn’t make sense? Well, never mind. Also, Al Jazeera.
