I told you Richard Gere was less evil than much of Hollywood!

Richard Gere has openly criticized Communist China and the EU for EU's lifting of the weapons embargo against China:
"They should not be rewarded for this anti-secession legislation that's in now," Gere said, referring to a new Chinese law that sanctions the use of force against Taiwan.

When was the last time a Hollywood figure was critical of any anti-Taiwan measure?

Back in January I wrote critically of Gere, while reserving some room for doubt due to Gere's movie "Red Corner":
Actually, I have less contempt for Gere than other Hollywood leftists. His movie (I forget the name) that exposed the Chinese legal system was panned by MSM critics for obvious reasons. It was almost unheard of for a Hollywood actor to engage in such a project. Usually, the left reserves all of their hatred only for America. Now if only Gere would make a similar commercial exhorting the Iraqis to vote (not that it is needed) or a commercial exhorting Democrats to stop cheating in American elections, I could almost forgive him entirely.

Now if only we could prove that the terrorists want to harm the Dalai Lama . . .
