Why Do People Love Betty White and Hate Kathy Griffin

At the gym, they were playing Kathy Griffin’s sad press conference with Gloria Allred’s daughter. I don’t know what she was saying, since I was listening my workout shuffle of J-Pop and metal. (FWIW, it synched up amusingly sometimes.)

The thing that almost makes me feel sad for Ms. Griffin is that her whole thing is that she wants to be beloved. The beheading of Donald Trump was supposed to win her the hearts of the increasingly violent left; it wasn’t a threat of political violence, it was a glorification of political violence. And when the people, the clique, rejected her… well, she had to try something. So, she does this press conference where she makes another play for the sympathy of the prog left. “I’m the victim of that horrible Donald Trump, and I’ve been a victim of the Patriarchy my whole life.” That venture seems to have come up short also.

For some reason, I started thinking about Betty White. Betty White truly is beloved by people. Why? Longevity, is part of it, roles on two iconic sitcoms twenty years apart. But a big part of it is her demeanor. Betty White is sweet. People like that. And when she does… as she occasionally does… something a bit raunchy, it’s funnier because it’s coming from sweet old Betty White.

You could imagine yourself running into Betty White in a coffee shop and sharing a coffee and biscotti with her. You imagine Kathy Griffin as someone who would be shouting at the barista and loudly talking about herself in order to claim the unwilling attention of everyone in the shop.

Not to mention, Betty White mostly keeps her trap shut about politics.

You would never see Betty White mimicking oral sex on Anderson Cooper. She has enough sense to know it wouldn’t be funny. For someone who alleges to be comedienne, Ms. Griffin has a terrible sense of what’s comedy. Probably because she was raised to believe that it was ‘comic’ and ‘edgy’ for women to be loud and boorish, and she expected that to translate into affection. It does not.

And I know feminists will be saying, “Well, that’s just misogyny. Women can’t get away with being loud, but men are respected for it.” No, not really. Roger Moore passed away last week, and one of the recurring comments on his passing was what a kind, gracious, and classy guy he was. Justin Bieber on the other hand…

Kathy Griffin is a loud, rude, grating, boorish woman completely lacking in comedic instincts who wants more than anything to have the kind of esteem Betty White does. She’s 57-years-old, and she wants the same things a twelve-year-old girl wants. And that’s just sad.

I know in the greater scheme of things, this doesn’t matter. My takeaway isn’t about Ms. Griffin. I couldn’t care less about her (and that’s the most wounding thing to her, nobody cares). But there is, maybe, some sort of lesson about the futility and abject sadness of pursuing fame and esteem as ends in themselves. Even when you succeed, you end up like Madonna; surrounded by wealth and sycophants while your own children can’t stand being around you.

Anyway, if this all bored you, there’s a video of an alt-right guy slamming Robert De Niro after the jump.

Kathy Griffin fired, but is that enough?

CNN has fired Kathy Griffin from their next New Year’s Eve program. As V noted earlier, she posed for a so-called ‘artist’ with herself holding a blood-drenched, beheaded effigy of President Trump. In a single image, she managed to align herself with Islam (or ISIS imagery), Satanism (or satanic imagery), and assassination of the President of the United States.

To his minor credit, Anderson “Vanderbilt” Cooper tweeted “For the record, I am appalled by the photo shoot Kathy Griffin took part in. It is clearly disgusting and completely inappropriate.” (Minor because it’s something he should have done hours faster, and perhaps an understatement.)

It remains to be seen whether Hollywood and the Left will actually shun Griffin, or rehabilitate her once the dust settles? After all, the first reaction of a CNN panel (led by Jake Tapper) was a dismissive “We’ve got much bigger issues to focus on.”

And indeed, they do. After all, CNN is the Home of Fake News, such as:

  • proclaiming that Hillary is somehow healthy and a lock to win the election;
  • pushing the fake/scripted views of a seven year old as a serious reason for the U.S. to make war in Syria; and
  • pushing evidence-free, anonymously-sourced innuendo against Trump.

But maybe CNN’s dismissive, first reaction didn’t focus-group very well?

The whole thing got me thinking about denunciations in general. After all, conservatives and libertarians are supposed to denounce every little thing done by every little kook – or else we somehow are that thing. Recently,

  • Jacob Schwartz was arrested for child pornography. He isn’t a nobody. He is a longtime Democrat activist and staffer. His father is a huge Democrat donor and insider, having served as an Obama delegate and a lawyer for Bernie Sanders, the SEIU and ACORN (remember them?).

    Young-ish Jacob allegedly possessed graphic images of a 6-month old baby being raped. He was a top staffer to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Schwartz also appeared on Chris Cuomo’s program on CNN (them again!). Hillary’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, can be seen standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Schwartz – or at least he could, before Schwartz’s arrest triggered Democrats into disappearing the inconvenient photo.

    My question is, has Robby Mook denounced Schwartz, in no uncertain terms? Has Hillary Clinton? Or the DNC? Or CNN? Has Chris Cuomo indicated his regret at having Schwartz as a guest? I couldn’t find any such statements.

    Each of them, who has not yet done such a statement, therefore supports pedophiles and pedophilic rape – if we apply the Left’s usual logic about these things.

  • Marina Abramović is another left-wing “artist” who promotes imagery and practices that are awfully reminiscent of Satanism, with that Spirit Cooking thing she’s into.

    John Podesta is, of course, one of THE top Clintonites, as he was Hillary’s campaign chair and her preference for Secretary of State.

    It’s known that Podesta was invited, on warmly intimate terms, to a private Spirit Cooking “dinner” that his brother Tony probably attended, and which Podesta himself may have attended.

    Has either of the Podestas denounced Satanism, or at least Abramović? Has Hillary Clinton denounced either of the Podestas? I don’t think so.

    Again, apply the Left’s typical logic of you-are-clearly-for-that-bad-thing-if-we-don’t-agree-that-you-have-denounced-it-enough, and see where it would go, here.

  • And don’t get me started about Antifa – and the failure of many lefties to denounce their violence.

So, firing Kathy Griffin from a New Year’s Eve program that was going to happen in 7 more months: is that enough? Or should we call for more? If yes, what?

UPDATE: She says “I went too far, and I was wrong.”

Umm, “too far” in what? When I go too far, it’s because I love something. I ate too much chocolate or lemon pie. I tried to power clean too much weight. So, if Kathy “went too far” in making visible her fantasy of beheading the President and soaking his head in the blood, then deep in her soul, she loves…??? Something about this is still “off”.

You know what I’m talking about.

May I posit that the left’s snotty assertion, “When they go low, we go high” only applies when they think they’re winning?

Remember when the left-wing went into… or perhaps, merely elevated… paroxysms of outrage when someone hung an “Obama Presidential Library” sign on an outhouse? How disrespecting the president in such a manner was the most outrageous outrage of all outrageous outrages. Remember how the Justice Department investigated it as a hate crime?

Pepperidge Farm remembers.

She actually thinks this gruesome stunt will jump start the rusted out 1992 Yugo that is her career. What does that say about Hollywood and liberalism?

And don’t take this the wrong way, she has every Constitutional right to do this.

And if someone else wanted to portray Barack Obama in a demeaning and disrespectful way, that would have been their Constitutional right. Although, it’s likely they would have had the tolerant progressive mob descend on them… probably the FBI and IRS, too.

Update: Why do they do this?

It’s fine to get shocked or outraged. But you have to understand something. This is all they’ve got. They don’t have rational arguments, not against Donald Trump, and not in favor of anything. If they did, they would utilize the freedom of speech we still have, the academic institutions they largely control with federal dollars, and the media they dominate to make those arguments. Yet they don’t. Either they do things like Kathy Griffin has done here, or they do the equivalent of those things — rant, rave, cry, pout, unfriend people from Facebook, and all the rest.

What have they got? That’s the question. And the answer can only be: nothing. The proof of that is the way they’re handling their loss. When people throw away reason and replace it with bullying and barbarism, they’ve confessed they’re at the end of their intellectual run.

Do Hollywood Writers Know Any Actual Christians?

On a recent episode of Law and Order: SVU (which I was amazed to learn is still in production), the storyline concerned… I am not making this up… a Christian church that encourages teenagers to rape other teenagers to keep them from turning gay.

SVU’s writers saved their coup de grace for the final minutes of the episode. In those last moments, the audience learns that Lucas himself is a closeted homosexual, and the priest told him to have sex with Ann as penance for his own homoerotic thoughts.

Yeah, because Christian ministers *always* encourage teenagers to engage in premarital sex to ward off Teh Ghey.

It’s like everything Hollywood knows about Christianity comes from The Handmaids Tale: which is nothing but a paranoid fantasy of what the world would be like if Christians acted like Muslims.

From Breitbart, Joss Whedon Film Imagines World Without ‘Beacon of Hope’ Planned Parenthood

The 3-minute film shows tears, frustration, and desperation in its imaginary world without Planned Parenthood, where scholarships are lost and projects interrupted all because the abortion giant isn’t present to erase the consequences of people’s sexual decisions…

As if people wouldn’t quickly move to a mix of adoption, privately-funded abortion, privately-funded birth control, non-vaginal sex, abstinence and/or condoms.

And I say that as a supporter of first-semester abortion rights. Even I can recognize when abortion advocates are dishonest.

“Planned Parenthood is a beacon of hope, and anyone trying to shut it down is committing an act of evil. It’s not just inhumane — it’s inhuman.

No, Joss. What’s evil, inhumane and inhuman (you can picture his face and voice cracking on that one) is:

  1. Late-term abortion.
  2. Forcing your fellow citizens to fund it.
  3. Painting murderers as heroes.
  4. Assuming that anything YOU like, has to be funded by taxpayers (rather than yourself).

But we know Joss has problems:

On Mother’s Day, he tweeted his gratitude for his mother’s death 25 years earlier so she wouldn’t have to live in a world where Donald Trump was president…

…and his other tweets gleefully picture graphic violence happening to Republicans.

UPDATE – Unrelated? I almost blogged on this yesterday: Man rompers. Hipsters in baby clothes.

seven male models in ridiculous one piece baby suits known as rompers

Joss Whedon has nothing to do with this, so I can’t imagine why my subconscious connects it to him. But it does.

The straight actor who plays Gay Sulu seems to be as dumb as the gay actor who plays Straight Sulu.

John Cho posted on his Twitter account Monday, “It’s hard not to see a connection between the environment Trump has created and what happened on that @united flight.”

I’m squinting really hard and I’m not seeing the connection. It must be like one of those Magic Eye pictures from the 1990’s. I never got those, either.

Disney Reimagines ‘Beauty and the Beast’ as Gay Propaganda

Posted by V the K at 12:29 pm - March 1, 2017.
Filed under: Big Hollywood,Gay Culture

There is no room for innocent childhood fairytales in Progressive jihad. All things must serve the agenda.

According to The Telegraph, Disney’s new live action Beauty and the Beast “will star a manservant exploring his sexuality.” Super.

Apparently, Emma Watson’s Beauty has gotten a feminist makeover, and the character of Le Fou has the hots for his boss Gaston.

The Telegraph cites an interview director Bill Condon did with the gay magazine Attitude. “LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” he said. “And Josh [Gad, who plays LeFou] makes something really subtle and delicious out of it.”

They say it’s going to be the ‘gayest film ever.’ Not unless Gaston and Le Fou play homoerotic beach volleyball, it isn’t.

To the Hollywood Left, attacking an innocent ten-year-old kid is a resume-enhancer.

The thing is, Dan Harmon *wouldn’t* be offering to hire Katie Rich if she *hadn’t* become notorious for attacking Barron Trump. As a general rule, rewarding bad behavior encourages more bad behavior. And the behavior that is rewarded is a reflection of the values of the community as a whole.

Consider that this is the same Hollywood that reveres child rapist Roman Polansky as a legend, and lets gay child rapist Victor Salva fetishize teenage males in his movies (Powder, Jeepers Creepers).

Back in December, there was talk on the left of having a big old “In Yer Face’ anti-Trump concert on the day of the inaugural. It was going to feature Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Madonna and Katy Perry. And it was really going to stick it to Trump because no Big Name Celebrities were going to be at his Inaugural. And how can anyone possibly serve as president without the Celebrity Class on his side?

I looked around the interwebs today for news of this awesome concert, and, alas, I found nothing but old news about the concert from back in December. It seems to have disappeared faster than the women who accused Trump of groping them before the election.

What happened? Surely, these left-wing celebrities weren’t just blowing smoke out of their pie-holes to show off politically correct poses while having no interest in putting skin in the game? (I seem to recall Madonna making some other promises, too.) I just can’t imagine celebrities being so insincere and hypocritical

Or maybe the left just said, “You know what? Concerts are too much work. Lets just have anarchist violence instead.”

Surefire, Can’t-Miss Script Idea

Posted by V the K at 1:21 pm - January 9, 2017.
Filed under: Big Hollywood

If you’re a struggling screenwriter, then have I got a script for you. I guarantee that if you write this script, Hollywood will pay you handsomely. But act fast, because I have a feeling we’re going to see at least half a dozen films like this over the next two years.

The script would be titled ‘Great Again.’ It would describe the adventures of a liberal Hollywood actress who travels to a small town in the Heartland to do research for a part in a film. The town… because there is no place for subtlety in Hollywood… will be called Drumpville. The actress’s name will be Hope. She is appalled by the bigotry and ignorance of the townspeople, all of whom are morbidly obese, addicted to heroin, and carry guns everywhere they go.

The plucky actress… with the help of a feminist schoolteacher and a transgendered illegal immigrant teenager, win the town over by teaching them the value of tolerance. At the end of the movie, the town has declared itself a sanctuary city, outlawed guns, and all the jobs come back when the Government funds a solar energy company. The actress wins a Golden Globe and the whole town turns out to cheer for her. I guarantee it will sell.

I guarantee it will win buckets of awards. I also guarantee it will do box office like Miss Sloane.

And, yeah, it is an awful lot like the plot of To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything…

Hollywood held one of its regular orgies of self-congratulation last night. Actress Meryl Streep gave a speech that many people are talking about.

“I look good on camera and I’m really good at reciting lines written for me by other people. Therefore, I am smart enough to lecture everyone else on politics. My opinions are valid because no one I know disagrees with them. Look at me and laud my courage!”

Well, she didn’t actually say that verbatim, but that was the gist.

Obama threw himself a going-away party last night and invited all of his ultra-wealthy celebrity friends.

It got me to thinking about how the left lately has been taunting Trump for his lack of celebrity support, the lack of “Big Name Stars” performing at his inauguration, and all the series of lame celebrity videos where celebrities try to influence politics by making sad faces in front of a neutral background and repeating the last word of the previous celebrity’s sentence.

The Democrat Left, once again, is acting like the middle school girls they are. “Look at how cool we are. The celebrities love us. They hate you. That’s because you’re not cool.”

I may not be the biggest fan of Donald Trump, but I am glad that the grown-ups in this country — who’ve had enough of this crap — prevailed in November 2016. Even if the popular vote totals showed there are more middle school girls than grown-ups in the country.

Wankers Whine that ‘Star Wars: Rogue One’ Isn’t Gay Enough

“There are no jokes in Islam Social Justice. There is no humor in Islam Social Justice. There is no fun in Islam Social Justice. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious. …” – The Ayatollah Khomeini Social Justice Wankers

The left demanded that JJ Abrams add gay characters to the Star Wars universe. ‘Rogue One’ contains a very committed-to-each other same sex pair. Wankers complain, “Not gay enough.”

Fusion alone has a beef with Disney: the characters could have been a gay couple, but they’re not. The site acknowledges that “in Chirrut and Baze’s case, whatever queer potential they have can only be realized if the audience wants to see it.” Only if people want them to be a gay couple can they be a gay couple. Unlike the rest of the media, Fusion is still waiting “for those queer characters J.J. Abrams promised us.”

You know how they could gay up the franchise? Explore the back story of Ackmena — Bea Arthur’s cantina-owning character from the Star Wars Holiday special. Bea Arthur has gone, but they could do a creepy CGI version of her like they did with Peter Cushing and Angela from ‘Family Guy.’

Sarah Jessica Parker — an actress of some sort — says she fears for her life if Trump is elected.

“The thing I keep saying is that even if — please, God — Trump is not elected, I’m afraid there is now a climate that has said in silence that it is okay to hurt anybody you not-so-secretly disagree with. Whether it’s how they look or the lifestyle you think they’re leading or the color of their skin, or they’ve come here to, you know, take advantage of this country. I’m terrified.”

Oh, honey, no. Unless you break a leg and someone has to put you down, you’re probably fine.

Realistically, Ms Parker has much more to fear from her husband’s driving than an outraged Trump supporter. She has much more risk of being murdered by someone from the Democrats’ core demo than a Trump supporter.

The Star Trek relaunch will feature a very ugly, 70’s throwback starship and lots of lefty social propaganda. Says CBS: “The drama, set to bow in 2017, will introduce new characters seeking imaginative new worlds and new civilizations, while exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.”

The new series might be okay, even pretty good, and I realize Star Trek has always been “progressive,” but there is a definite risk —  given the left’s inability to handle subtlety and nuance in conveying their agenda — that the new Trek will be a constant hammering of transgender bathrooms, NausicanLivesMatter, global warming, or whatever other lefty crap is on the agenda. Remember the horrible Next Generation “Global Warming” episode that ended with Star Fleet limiting ships to warp 5 to save the environment? I expect that will look subtle in comparison to some of the new episodes. Maybe it won’t be so bad. Maybe it will.

Maybe they’ll go to the increasingly tedious “Girl Power” trope where 90 lbs waifs are routinely kicking the asses of 200 lbs musclemen… because women could totally do that if it weren’t for the Patriarchy.

Between this and Patton Oswalt and the Daily Show Chief Propagandist helming the new MSJW3K reboot, I feel like everything I once loved is turning into left-wing propaganda.
