      Has Fifth Column become Fifth Pillar now? I can't keep up with the lexicon anymore, I should probably just stop trying...



    Quote:
    "Fifth Column" is the phrase I was racking my brain to remember! I know it from exactly one source: Captain America comics. The closest I came was "fifth pillar" and when I googled it, it came up, so I went with it.



    Quote:
    We need a Fifth Column to be active in Sharia countries. This is what rich people who genuinely (instead of just for the cameras) care about oppression can spend their money on.



    Quote:
    When I think of a George Clooney, I think of a pampered rich man sitting poolside, sipping a Mai Tai, a supermodel applying sunscreen to his back, and there he is, telling us how bad it is to be a woman in Brunei. You need to Wayne up, George. (As in Bruce Wayne.) Anonymous instead of paparazzi bait, and doing something instead of just talking. Finance a Fifth Column for Sharia countries.


No offense, but you're illustrating your own lack of knowledge here. Besides your own generalization of what celebrity lifestyles are like, what evidence is there that he's those things you describe? And even if he does enjoy the fruits of his stardom, how does that take away from what he says about Brunei? How does that preclude the possibility that he might do a lot more for the underprivileged than any of us can know?
