Put Up Or Shut Up

I just saw that a remake of the old "Karate Kid" movie is being released and that the teacher will be played by Jackie Chan.

Remember Jackie Chan? The guy who recently said, in public and for the record, that he believes that the Chinese government is right to control the people of China. That they are better off being controlled. That too much democracy is not a good thing. Of course he says this AFTER he makes his millions of dollars in the free world with his movies.

If you are one of those who believes that communism is not the way to govern a country, that people do not need controlling, especially in the ways that the Chinese do it, that Jackie Chan is wrong, then now is the time to PUT UP OR SHUT UP. If you pay to see this movie, you are supporting Jackie. If you pay to see this movie, or even watch it for free, you have no right to ever say you disagree with Jackie. Period.

I implore all who do not accept his comments to join me in boycotting his movies. Do not pay to see them. Do not see them. Do not talk about them. Let him know through our inaction that he has no clue what he is talking about. Show some support for the people of China — boycott Jackie Chan's movies, starting with this one!
