“Farmers Kicked Out of ‘Gasland’ Sequel After Questioning Director, Anti-Fracking Celebrity Yoko Ono.”
“Any farmer who had the temerity to question Yoko Ono or Josh Fox wasn’t allowed in,” McAleer says. “These film festivals want to be edgy, they want to be controversial and they want people to be passionate about film … but they only want a certain kind of passionate people.”
But then, we all knew her husband’s “Power to the People” shtick was just that:
“I dabbled in politics in the late 1960s and 1970s, more out of guilt than anything. Guilt for being rich and guilt thinking that perhaps love and peace isn’t enough and you have to go and get shot or something, or get punched in the face to prove I’m one of the people. I was doing it against my instincts.”
Noted. So why is Yoko trying to hurt poor people and farmers by keeping energy prices unnecessarily inflated?
