Liberal celebrities in Hollywood like to constantly blabber on about how “tolerant” they are from the safe confines of the Internet, using hashtag activism to stay in the “hip” and “cool” crowd, but it seems they aren’t too into practicing what they preach.Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo is a perfect example of the current activism trend in the entertainment industry and why it’s not only hypocritical, but absolutely obnoxious too.
Ruffalo tweeted out a petition, demanding NBC and MSNBC stop hiring white conservatives. So much for that “tolerance” bit, huh?According to Mediaite, On Saturday, the actor and social justice warrior tweeted a petition meant to “tell MSNBC, don’t promote right-wing hate.” The petition threatens repercussions if more white conservatives join the NBC family stating, “We need to let NBC executives know that there will be a sharp backlash if MSNBC becomes another platform for right-wing hate.”

You know, the kind of hate that is so prominent among people like Hugh Hewitt and Greta Van Susteren in the eyes of people like Ruffalo.
So, what exactly has Mark Ruffalo ready to Hulk Smash his TV set?
NBC and MSNBC recently decided to add new talent to the network including the likes of Greta Van Susteren. Nicolle Wallace, Hugh Hewitt, George Will and Megyn Kelly as either contributors or full-time on-air personalities. The conservative or moderate additions are at odds with the typical political culture at NBC and there is no place for that kind of diversity for some on the far-left.Hey! That means BLACK conservatives like Allen West would be perfect, right?
Here’s how many on the Internet greeted Ruffalo’s caring, understanding, “tolerance” of other viewpoints:
What drugs are you on? You might be watching another news network if you think @MSNBC has conservatives.

Replace "white" with any other ethnic group to understand how racist this tweet is.

Ruffalo seems to think if you’re a “white conservative,” which to him is anyone who doesn’t ascribe to pure progressivism in all it’s big government glory, you’re a vile villain who does not deserve to have your voice or ideas heard, First Amendment be damned.
Strangely, if you look at most right-wing pundits, particularly the ones mentioned in the quote above, you won’t find anything hateful coming from them, so this “actor” and his call for a biased hiring process for NBC is based on nothing more than assumption.
And you know what they say about assuming.
