Neo-Colonial Rob Reiner—Living In Malibu Colony, Calling Trump A Racist
Print Friendly and PDF

Movie director (A Few Good Men) and actor (All in the Family) Rob Reiner continues to rain thunder down upon Trump’s racist, restrictionist immigration policies from behind the guarded gates of the Malibu Colony, where he is a leader of local political efforts to keep Malibu’s population from growing.

A friend writes:

I looked up WHERE in Malibu Reiner lives. Apparently the 90% white Malibu isn’t exclusive and guarded enough for Rob. He lives in the Malibu Colony: the gated community within Malibu. He has walls within walls within walls to protect his privacy.

From the Los Angeles Times:

Spend July at Rob Reiner’s Malibu home for $100,000

By LAUREN BEALE,  MAR 12, 2015

Rob Reiner, whose “All in the Family” role launched his stardom in the 1970s, is the latest landlord of note to put his Malibu beach house up for lease. For $100,000 you get July, and that’s a relative bargain. …

Set behind the gates of Malibu Colony, the 2,755-square-foot summer spot features beamed ceilings and skylights. There’s a family room with a fireplace, five bedrooms, six bathrooms and steps to the sand.

But don’t worry, Rob isn’t homeless when he’s renting out his weekend house in Malibu:

Mister Reiner continues to own a gated compound hidden behind high hedges and a towering wall of shrubbery in the Brentwood area that he’s owned since the early 1990s, when he picked it up for $4.75 million.

I edited the last slightly to make it even harder to find Reiner’s houses, because I’ve worried about celebrity safety ever since John Lennon would remark upon the irony of him living in The Dakota, which did not work out well.

But not everybody shares my concerns. In another tweet, Reiner sounds kind of likes he’s issuing a casting call for a new, improved John Wilkes Booth:

“It’s like the assassination of Abraham Lincoln … except this time the President is the racist bad guy and the actor is the hero!”
