Finding a liberal actor in Hollywood isn’t much of an accomplishment, but we have to give Mark Ruffalo some credit for being consistent in his beliefs — whatever the issue, you’ll find him committed to the far left side of it. Is it ironic that Ruffalo plays the Hulk in the “Avengers” movies, the big green guy whose immeasurable strength grows in direct proportion to his rage? Moviegoers might love the Hulk, but Ruffalo doesn’t want to set a bad example on film, or in reaction to the terrorist attacks on Paris.
Don't allow this horrific act allow you to be drawn into the loss of your humanity or tolerance. That is the intended outcome. #ParisAttacks

That’s a lot of retweets, but we disagree; the intended outcome of the Paris terrorist attacks was to kill as many innocents as possible and frighten the survivors into compliance.
Thanks, guy from "13 Going on 30"! https://t.co/1vUQT30g2f

Don't get him mad. He's also THE HULK! https://t.co/Tlm7xnF1Kb

Ruffalo also retweeted this bit of rhetorical Fruit Stripe gum to chew on from MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, who made his debut on Twitter crying into his sweater but confessed to becoming “physically enraged” at the Supreme Court’s “gutting” of the Voting Rights Act.
If we don't use reason in the face of evil and murder and horror, then what good is reason at all?

@chrislhayes Reason is only reasonable in the face of rational actors. Simpleton.

@chrislhayes – reason and logic only work when all parties involved have the capacity for reason and logic.
