Scientologist Elisabeth Moss Insists ‘Handmaid’s Tale’ Isn’t ‘Game Of Thrones … Fantasy’

By  Ashe Schow

The hypocrisy of Leftists in Hollywood knows no bounds.

Elisabeth Moss, star of “The Handmaid’s Tale” and a scientologist, insisted during an interview with the Daily Beast that the TV Show she stars in is not “insane ‘Game of Thrones’ s*** and pure fantasy.”

Moss was responding to a statement — not a question — by the Beast’s Marlow Stern, who insisted that “The Handmaid’s Tale” was “remarkably in tune with the times.” Stern went on to note a lawsuit against an abortion clinic, the Georgia “heartbeat bill” that would ban abortion once a fetal heartbeat is detected, and a Super Bowl ad. He then gave Moss a chance to respond to his statement after saying how many people use the fictional show “as an act of resistance against this administration, and the assault on reproductive rights.”

Neither Stern nor Moss explain what this alleged “assault” is, considering none of the examples he gave were from the Trump administration, which, contrary to the misguided belief of the “resistance,” is not turning the country into “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

“We went to D.C. and shot at the Lincoln Memorial, and I find it incredibly moving what Lincoln stood for, what’s written on the walls, what those monuments stand for,” Moss said. “The principles that this country was built on are important and we’re losing them—and perhaps we’ve already lost them.”

She continued: “You feel a sense of responsibility and you feel honored telling this story at this time. When you’re kneeling on the steps in front of the Lincoln Memorial, you’re looking at where MLK gave his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech, you’re in the outfit of complete lack of freedom, and your president is a few blocks away arguing about putting up a wall, you can’t help but feel that you have the responsibility to tell this story, and I feel honored to be able to express what I think, what I feel, and what a lot of other people feel through what I love doing. For me, it’s an unfortunate thing. I wish this was crazy, and I wish Handmaid’s Tale was insane Game of Thrones shit and pure fantasy. I wish that were true. But it’s not.” (Emphasis added.)

The only people acting like they’re in “The Handmaid’s Tale” are the actual actors and those who play dress up while protesting.

It is especially rich coming from Moss, who practices scientology. It’s hard to take her beliefs about the real world seriously when this is the “religion” she practices.

Earlier in her interview, she addressed scientology by bringing up the First Amendment’s right to freedom of religion. That’s fine. She can believe what she wants. She was also asked about scientology’s famously anti-LGBT history. She claimed that she was pro-LGBTQ and differed from scientology in that regard.

Yet there she is in her next answer suggesting her fictional, anti-Christian TV show is real, thus making a sweeping claim about Christianity.

It’s actually no surprise that a person who associates with an organization that appears to actually enslave people would have a skewed view of the real world.
