Like the diligent little soldiers they are, leftist celebrities continue to parrot whatever their Dear Leader tells them to.
Last week, the Obama Administration sent an e-mail to Hollywood’s A-Listers giving them Twitter-ready talking points to dutifully repeat to their adoring followers.
And they – like the obedient little soldiers they are – repeated the talking points word for word.
The email sent by the White house followed the announcement last week that Obama was signing an executive order on gun control.
Fox News got a copy of the e-mail, sent by White House Associate Director of Public Engagement Jesse Moore:
“Below you have: short and long-term action steps, more info on POTUS’s actions, highlights from YOUR Tweets thus far (thank you!), and draft Tweets for you to build from if helpful,” the letter read.
It went on to offer step-by-step guidance for powerful entertainment figures to use their clout in the service of Obama.
“Make your voice heard on social media today using #StopGunViolence and see how many of your peers you can get to do the same,” it read. “I’ll make sure everyone here knows you have the President’s back.”
The e-mail’s subject line was “Artists & Entertainers Unite to #StopGunViolence” and was creepily addressed to “Family.” Here are some of the “tweets” they told the celebrities to send out:

Thank you @POTUS for stepping up and taking action when Congress won’t. #StopGunViolence FACT: Guns now kill as many people as cars in almost half of the U.S. It’s time to #StopGunViolence. @POTUS is strengthening our background check system.
Celebrities to Ashton Kutcher, Julienne Moore, Melissa Joan Hart, Kerry Washington, Mark Ruffalo and many others did precisely what they were told:

Pretty disgusting, isn’t it.
“This seems an unprecedented abuse of White House influence to manipulate the public into believing celebrities genuinely supported the president,” Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Institute told Fox News. “Hollywood is just an extension of Obama’s press…
