Double Hypocrisy: Climate Crusader/Pro-Obamacare George Clooney Takes Private Jet To Germany – For Healthcare!

Here’s some double-barrel hypocrisy, again straight out of Hollywood.

Last week big Obamacare booster and anti-CO2 activist George Clooney took his private jet all the way from Las Angeles across the US, Canada, and the Atlantic, before finally landing in Germany…to seek medical help for his chronic back problems. Apparently Obamacare and America’s best physicians are unable to take care of it.

Much of the German media have been reporting on Mr. Clooney’s visit to a clinic in Solingen last Friday, see video here.

Spiegel writes:

The actor had himself examined last Friday by the Neurosurgery Department of the Städtischen Klinikums Solingen, so confirmed clinic director Hermann-Josef Bökmann, according to the DPA news agency.”

I guess Obamacare and the US medical system aren’t good enough for the ailing actor.

And how does the environmentally conscious Clooney justify burning tonnes of jet fuel and spewing greenhouse gases directly into upper troposphere (where it supposedly really hurts the climate)? Well damn it, my back hurts! And Obamacare is for the simple folks, anyway.

The media also report that this month Clooney will be taking his jet to Italy to get married. For that event Hollywood stars Ben Affleck, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon will also be flying in on private jet(s), also spewing more tonnes of greenhouse gas into the upper troposphere on the carbon account of Mr. Clooney.

Spiegel writes here that last Friday’s examination took “several hours” and looked into his chronic back problems/pain stemming from an accident he suffered while filming “Syriana. Spiegel also adds Clooney had admitted to alcohol problems, and taking pain-killers to keep the back pain bearable.

Searching for that 1 non-consensus doctor?

So why did he really fly by private jet all the way to Europe for private care? I’d guess he’s decided not to take the advice of 99% of the doctors at home, who have likely advised him that the needed treatment is (risky) back surgery involving who knows what.

This is not really the kind of medicine anyone likes to swallow, especially when you know the treatment could seriously alter lifestyle. Yet, let’s recall how Clooney once spoke to the public on following doctors’ advice and that of activist climate scientists:

If you have 99 percent of doctors who tell you ‘you are sick’ and 1 percent that says ‘you’re fine,’ you probably want to hang out with, check it up for the 99. You know what I mean?”

Obviously George is searching the corners of the globe, in his private jet, for that 1 doctor who doesn’t agree with the other 99, climate protection and medical consensus be damned. Do as I say, not as I do. Skepticism for me, but not for you.

    We have to cut George some slack. His jet is not using fossil fuels any longer.

    He switched to a blend of pure hypocrisy and rich-boy arrogance a few years back.

    “Syriana” was a United Arab Emirates financed film from billionaire eBay co-founder Jeff Skol’s Participant Media, producers of Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth” and many more subtle movies with better concealed social activist subtexts.

    Participants next release will, however, be completely in your face, Naomi Oreskes “Merchants of Doubt”.

    How do you get the idea he might have copper deficiency, Pierre?

    George not the only one heading to Germany:-

    “01 September 2014 – The Met Office has announced the launch of its renewable energy services in Germany.

    Increasing uptake of its renewables offerings in targeted European countries is a key growth objective for the Met Office, which continues to increase its market share in the UK.

    The German market is set to see a dramatic shift towards offshore activity. According to the Global Wind Energy Council, by 2020 installed onshore wind capacity is predicted to increase by 40% to reach 45,000MW, whilst offshore capacity will increase by 1,460% to 6,000MW………”

    If he could fly all that way then his back is not that poor. I know from bitter experience. Terrible indictment of Obamacare and the quality of care it can provide … “If you want your medical insurance, you can have your medical insurance.” (or words to that effect). Clearly not so.

    Not sure about copper or native copper Pierre and I suspect you are not pregnant, but if you were best not take it as copper sulphate. The preferred fungicide/herbicide of “organic” vegetable growers is alleged to be not too good for gestating females.

    Gotta love those limosine libs, they’re nothing if not consistent.

    “Watching your carbon footprint is for thee, not for me.”
    “Poverty for all in the name of ‘fairness’ is for thee, not for me.”
    “ObamaCare is for thee, not for me.”

      It’s amazing how the hypocrite train shuffles on as long as they can print money to hand out freebies.
