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).
Celebrity leftists slaughter “I Will Survive” in the latest “We Are So Butthurt Over Donald Trump’s Election” video.
Also, Rosie O’Donnell is out of her damned mind.
@SenJohnMcCain FOR EMERGENCY INTERIM PRESIDENT – ONE MONTH INAUGURATION PAUSE – ILLEGITIMATE PRESIDENTS SHOULD NOT BE SWORN – GOD DAMN IT – 3:59 PM – 15 Jan 2017
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.”
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.
A Fox sitcom is featuring a six-year-old boy wearing an S&M ball gag. Because transgender kindergarteners in S&M gear are totally edgy and stuff.
Stuff like this is why I don’t *completely* discount #pizzagate.
“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.
For some reason, someone invited an airheaded Hollywood actress to an AIDS conference; which is a bit like inviting a cocker-spaniel to a Symposium on Particle Physics.
“HIV is not transmitted by sex,” Charlize Theron announced. “It is transmitted by sexism, racism.”
Theron continued by discussing how AIDS still plagues humanity because of a social divide between white and black people.
“We value white skin more than black skin,” she told the crowd, adding that the African-originated pandemic is predominantly the result of social discrimination in the West.
But, y’know, she got to wear a suit and have her hair styled like ‘serious business lady,’ which I am sure was fun for her.
The new Star Trek movie will contain a “shocking reveal” that Lt. Sulu is gay. Isn’t that quaint? And by quaint I mean, every lazy and hackneyed. That’s what Hollywood is.
George Takei, who originated the role of Lt. Sulu and is usually totally down with Social Juicebox bullcrap isn’t happy, because he finds the idea of a gay Lt. Sulu lazy and hackneyed.
“I’m delighted that there’s a gay character,” said Takei. “Unfortunately, it’s a twisting of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s creation, into which he put so much thought. I think it’s really unfortunate.”
Takei said that he had expressed his concerns immediately on hearing of the plot development, which involves the revelation that, as well as a daughter, Sulu has a same-sex partner.
The actor reportedly encouraged the film-makers to be “imaginative and create a character who has a history of being gay, rather than Sulu, who had been straight all this time, suddenly being revealed as being closeted”.
Another casualty of the JJ Abrams alternate timeline.
Nope. Not Hillary Clinton. Melissa Gilbert (from Little House on the Prairie, yeah *that* Melissa Gilbert) who was running for a congressional seat in Michigan dropped out citing “health problems.”
The “health problems” apparently surfaced after her Republican opponent resorted to the dirty trick of pointing out that she was delinquent in her taxes and quoting her actual words.
Republicans dogged Gilbert’s campaign early by highlighting more than $470,000 in back taxes she owes the Internal Revenue Service and the state of California.
In April, Bishop’s campaign dug up video of a 2009 appearance Gilbert made on “The View” talk show in which she called attempts to sentence filmmaker Roman Polanski for the 1977 rape of a 13-year-old girl “excessive.”
“I think the punishment at this point may be excessive — I don’t know, that’s just my opinion,” Gilbert said.
Days after the video surfaced on YouTube, Gilbert disavowed the comments and apologized, saying “I said something I didn’t mean and don’t believe.”
Yeah, the old “I said it, but I didn’t mean it” defense; that only works for Donald Trump, sweetheart.
Ah, blue-on-blue conflict is so yummy. The Obama Regime has launched an investigation of the Film Industry for not having enough female producers, directors, and so forth.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs launched an inquiry to look at hiring practices, it emerged on Wednesday.
It comes after statistics emerged showing less than seven per cent of top movies last year were directed by women.
The investigation was spurred on by letters filed by the ACLU.
‘We’re very encouraged by how seriously the government has taken this,’ attorney Melissa Goodman, director of the LGBTQ, Gender and Reproductive Justice Project at the ACLU of Southern California, said.
I would have thought the freedom for an employer to hire people according to their own merit and not to fulfill a politically motivated quota system was a civil right, but I guess not. And apparently, the ACLU and the Obama Regime want Hollywood to make more movies like the apparently terrible feminist ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot.
You have to wonder if it ever occurred to the Left that the hunger of The Beast could never be satiated merely by picking on Christian florists and bakers.
Prince passed away yesterday; you may not have been aware of this if you were in a coma or … no, there is no way you missed this news unless you were in a coma. I’m pretty sure deep in the bowels of solitary confinement in the Colorado SuperMax Terrorist Prison, Zacarias Moussaoui was heard mournfully humming “Raspberry Beret.” The news of Prince’s death even temporarily took the National Crisis of Transgender Bathrooms off the top of the hour news for a brief period.
It made me think of the other 1980′s icons who are getting up into AARP territory and … well, what’s going to happen when they die? Let’s speculate, won’t you?
- Bruce Springsteen will die someday, and then he will boycott Heaven when he discovers they don’t let dudes use the Ladies’ Room there.
- Bono will die someday, and wouldn’t you love to be at the Pearly Gates as he lectures God about the plight of African children.
- Morrissey will die someday, and finally manage not to be a pompous ass for five minutes.
- Madonna, I can just see her having herself taxidermied… perhaps using Japanese sex robot technology … and put on exhibit like Lenin or a venerated Catholic Saint… so she can still get attention after she’s dead. Judging by recent pictures, she has already begun this process.
- Cyndi Lauper, I am pretty sure when she dies, a lot of people are going to say, “Wasn’t she already dead? I feel like she died already.” Then, they will go to wiki and say, “Huh, I guess I must have been thinking of someone else. Well, she’s dead now.”
- Boy George probably will not require a whole lot of embalming, I’ll leave it at that.
Hollywood is re-writing history to suit a leftist agenda; nothing new here.
Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed Fifty Shades of Grey, is in talks to direct Apex Entertainment’s feature Chappaquiddick. Written by Taylor Allen and Andrew Logan, Chappaquiddick is political thriller that unveils the true story of what is described as the seven most dramatic days of Senator Ted Kennedy’s life. “You’ll see what he had to go through.”
What *he* had to go through? Seriously? This is like when they made a movie about Che Guevara and left out the mass murder and racism.
John H. at Powerline gets it just right:
I suppose you could make an interesting movie about Chappaquiddick. It would be the story of a rich man’s privileged life, one where the death of a “little person” counts for nothing compared with his political ambitions. It would be the story of a political machine whose brain trust didn’t even include Ted–considered by them to be an idiot–in the meeting where they planned a strategy to deal with his vehicular homicide. It would be a story of political corruption and of a debased electorate whose weird devotion to the Kennedys prevented Ted from paying even a minimal price for his fatal cowardice.
Singer James Taylor adores Obama.
“I am just thankful for every day that he’s in office. I am so proud that he represents my country and I think he represents me — I think he represents the America that I know.”
According to his wikipedia biography, Mr. Taylor born into a well-to-do family, was put on Thorazine in college to deal with his mental illness, spent time in a mental hospital, subsequently became addicted to heroin, moved to New York and did even more drugs while his lifestyle was subsidized by friends with money, moved to London, was helped out in his career by more wealthy and successful people (Paul McCartney and George Harrison) and has spent pretty much the entirety of his adult life surrounded by wealthy Hollywood lefties.
Not exactly the America most of us know.
