    its funny that everyone in the hollywood has the same argument against trump. tho, thats the point of political, everyone has the same talking point and alternative opinion often got bury amongst all the "popular opinion"
    just like when kommandos who say" i will givr up my guns until all babys are dead."

    2.2 million more people vote for the other person, yet Trump becomes President? Stupid system. Next liberal President needs to destroy the electoral. It was invented when the US population was 19 people.

    I don't like his political views because they are anti-trump but because they are anti-liberty and anti-American. It like he is reciting the communist liberal leftist handbook. What a big disappointment.

    Why is he talking about how good imigranfs are for society? He realizes we support legal immigrants are welcomed and supported by us right? And we also want illegals of other nationalities deported too right? He's making good points against a non existent opponents. We disagree with you liberals on open borders. Of course we want legal immigrants coming in why is he saying illegak immigrants are good for economy..

      George is smart but not politically, same with many people, I could take on George rr Martin in a debate about politics and win, yet if it was on something like history he’d destroy me. I think people should take all opinions with a grain of salt, do research by yourself and you’ll realise they’re doing more crime per person etc. George believes all people have good, which is true, yet he thinks Mexicans will be fine if no one is racist and they’re nice, no, they’ll rape and kill (some will) but 1 person could take the lives of 5 food people easily. George has no clue what he’s talking about.

    Difference is, those that immigrated at Ellis Island (read statue of liberty) were LEGALLY allowed into the country, not sneaking in taking taxpayer benefits without the burden of paying taxes themselves.

    Actually, i'm a little surprised by how deep anti-Trump hate is. By hearing his haters, you would be lead to believe he's gonna force all immigrants into camps, all women into kitchens, and wage war to the entire world.
    Actually, he isn't doing any of these. He recently STARTED A WORLD CAMPAIGN FOR DE-PENALIZATION OF HOMOSEXUALITY. He made an agreement with Mexico for immigrants, made many agreements with other countries for trade, using duties as a lever. Oh, and he relaunched the economiy MASSIVELY by cutting the taxes, and unemployement is at its lowest ever.
    People are actually hating him...WHAT FOR???

  • HE1NZ
    HE1NZ 5 months ago +1

    Martin is a smart dude. He works closely with Democrat controlled areas of show business and understands that if he doesn't say all the right things they will blacklist him and won't print his books. Notice how he didn't say anything new, merely repeated required talking points. He probably doesn't care, but doesn't want to stop working and fail his fans, so he goes along with it.

    • Waldo Does Games

      @HE1NZ hm, interesting viewpoint. I found his inclusion of a dwarf as one of the most sympathetic characters (at least, for the first three books) to be fairly progressive, but I guess you can't really write based on the middle ages without it reflecting older ways.

    • HE1NZ
      HE1NZ 4 months ago

      @Waldo Does Games Well, his novels are not pipe dreams about diversity and inclusivity. They are very conservative in that some people are stronger than others and all the power belongs to families, not classes or races. Trumps are in many ways resemble Lannisters too

    As much as I disagree with George’s politics (being that they are borderline foolish and uninformed), he does have a right to express them. Its allowed, so calm down people on him expressing his opinions. That being said, you most certainly can rebuff his points as well. Just because he’s allowed to express his opinions doesn’t mean he is immune from criticism, as this interview clearly shows, his opinions are very flawed and in some cases hypocritical.
    Side note: I am more on the belief that people, especially celebrities, should remain quiet about their beliefs. It just creates division within your fanbase. Like I said, he is certainly allowed to express his opinions and that is fine. Don’t put much weight into his beliefs. But it does tend to divide people. And the interviewer should also not ask about it, its irrelevant and likewise personal. Say the wrong thing, people will look badly upon you.

    I'm a Trump supporter but I respect GRRM'S perspective and think he has a right to his opinion, even if it's something I don't agree with, and will continue to support him through being his patron as long as he puts out good stories, I don't see what his politics has anything to do with his storytelling. I imagine most Trump supporters would be on the same boat with me, and would have that kind of perspective on anyone.

    • Only Playsveigar
      Only Playsveigar 6 months ago

      @Dave Gunner I just think he has a bias which is normal for anyone to have, and his political bias would be evident in his writing and, in this case, his rhetoric. They way he mentions how Hilary lost the general election by electoral vote and not by popular, and in essence by extending the same sentimental statement towards Bush's candidacy - while knowing that it's always been by electoral college and that there was a good reason behind the electoral college system, ellicites to me that he's not unhinged by not giving the full narriative of the argument between the right and the left, and instead giving his biased perspective on politics - feeding to the already tired demagoguing of people who voted Trump into power, painting with broad strokes about his electorate and associating him with ppl who lean on the far right of the spectrum.
      This is by no means admonishing him as a person, just my critique on his perspective of the issue.
      Although I think it was dishonest at least and I've seen the same thing from people like David Pakman. I hope in the future there are more people on the left who can argue in good faith their positions without having to slander people on the right. I hope the same happens for people on my side. Doesn't look like it'll ever go that route however.

      Only Playsveigar-well not all of them I’d imagine. But fair play for approaching it this way.
      I respect George’s views though, he is a history buff so he can obviously see the errors in human nature and it’s past.

      @Muhammad Pope Yes there is a typical leftist, progressive, liberal. You can't say their is a typical right winger because they basically keep on shifting with the Overton window as more and more people are disowned and disenfranchised by the left.

      @Muhammad Pope Would have agreed 15 years ago maybe. Candidates reflect their constituency and all the politicians have the same ideas. So yea there is a typical leftist. Hate Donald Trump, total belief in climate change, believe all women, socialistic policies. And the typical conservative is the opposite. To give a few examples.

    You know I didn't think about it till I saw this interview. Season 5 of GOT, the season in which Jon Snow let in the Wildings/Free Folk from beyond the wall (to protect them from the Night King, White Walkers, and Army of the Dead) and was subsequently stabbed by Allister Thorne and several others was in 2015, and that was the year in which Syrians were emigrating to the US/Europe to escape the atrocities going on in their home country. That's probably just a coincidence, but the parallels are quite intriguing.

    All these criticisms towards trump never hold up when you consider the facts of the matter.

    You can complain about the laugh, but that's roughly the right sound for a Mexican to make when they hear the suggestion that they're going to pay for our wall of dumb. It's a hilarious premise to the average Mexican, tinged with some sadness that a country to their northern border can be this dumb and still be important.

    Wow. I am very impressed that Martin said such wonderful things about politics. I totally agree with him. I am glad that finally someone says something about the Native Americans. They are the only ones who can make a reasonable claim against immigration. I voted for Hillary Clinton. I have just learned that my popular vote had won. I thought Trump duped a lot of Americans with his pathetic campaign speeches. Now I see that there are plenty of Americans smarter than that. It was just a hiccup in the system. Darn the electoral college hiccups! The American people are smarter than I gave them credit for before. I was a lot more than concerned during the election. I was paranoid. Interestingly Game of Thrones applies to the Trump Wall. The Night's Watch has a wall blocking Free Folk and White Walkers. The Free Folk take issue with it, because they lived on the land first, and they are unfairly blocked off. Mexico actually owned more land in the past. Then the United States stole in the Mexican American War. So the Mexicans are like the Free Folk. If anyone should determine immigration in that part of America, it should be the Mexicans. The only one that should have more say is the Native Americans. The two are mixed. Mexican people tend to be part Native American and part Spanish. At the issue is resolved at the end of the TV show. One good thing the white walkers did was punch a hole in the wall, which gives more freedom for Free Folk. In the end there is no more Night's Watch or White Walkers. There are just Free Folk left, so they can take over. Jon Snow is supposed to be exiled to the Night's Watch. However there is no more Night's Watch. So instead Jon just goes with his Free Folk buddies. He has totally gone native. I hope he gets another Free Folk girlfriend in the future.

    I'm honestly shocked at his political views after this interview. After reading ASoIF I was convinced that G.R.R Martin was, like me, a fellow wall enthusiast. However, I am dreadfully disappointed after seeing this interview. Then again no one has asked him his views on a northern wall, I wonder if he'd be more receptive.

    George RR Martin can pay for the consequences of open borders if he wants them. Hold on - all the main characters in his shit books are white. White and abnormal. Typical leftist.
