The recent pro-life bills passed in Alabama and Georgia appear to have inspired a new iteration of liberal women proudly sharing their abortion stories. Similar to #ShoutYourAbortion, actress Busy Philipps, who revealed her own abortion as a way to rail against Georgia's Heartbeat Bill, asked women to use the hashtag #YouKnowMe to announce their abortions and "end the shame."
One company started marketing “makeup for men” and people are freaking out – but it’s not who you might think. Although the brand War Paint has been out for months, the UK company’s male makeup line went viral with a video tweet on May 8. Now, to most people, the objectionable part is simply a man wearing make up. But to the woke left on Twitter and their chroniclers in the media, the problem is War Paint’s toxic masculinity, male insecurity, cultural appropriation, and lack of inclusive shades.
A group of liberal professional women trying to disrupt the Trump administration at any cost sink to a new low in the May 9 episode of CBS’s All-Access streaming show The Good Fight. In “The One Where the Sun Comes Out,” the dangerous practice of swatting is used as payback for President Trump’s immigration policy and Trump senior policy advisor Stephen Miller appears to be the target.
Almost 10 years after the death of Democrat Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy of Massachusetts, and 50 years after the death of Mary Jo Kopechne -- and two years after a major Hollywood film on the incident -- the media are starting to finally reveal the truth about what happened at Chappaquiddick.
Registered Nurse Theresa Brown had an outrageous and horrific op-ed posted on CNN on April 30 that says, far from being an execution, every abortion has "good." Brown takes umbrage with President Trump describing babies killed after botched abortions as executions, calling it a lie “so outrageous and horrific that the only good response to it is to state that such things never happen.”
President of NARAL Ilyse Hogue took to Glamour magazine on April 23 to tell corporate America, “women’s advancement should be top of mind for companies right now,” calling standing up for reproductive freedom one “critical aspect” that is overlooked. Because if there's one thing America needs more of right now, it's divisive politics.
PBS’s FRONTLINE episode “The Abortion Divide,” an update of a piece by Mark Obenhaus that examined abortion politics in Pennsylvania in 1983, aired on April 23. The film bounced back and forth between the 1980s and today, ranging from the inner city of Philadelphia to the suburbs and recording five separate abortion procedures. But one crucial topic was conspicuously missing: the crimes of Dr. Kermit Gosnell.
Tina Fey doesn't think Saturday Night Live can influence people because they're just so darn "fair" and they have their finger on the pulse of how the nation is "already feeling."
The holiest time of the year doesn't provide a break for Christians from Hollywood's anti-religious bias on TV. If anything, it makes it worse.
The April 16 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, titled “A Supreme Snub,” was recorded back in September during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court confirmation hearings giving the left coast ladies the perfect opportunity to virtue signal their support for his accuser.
Hollywood and the media always love a pro-abortion storyline on TV and liberals seemed to particularly enjoy a horrifically profane rant against pro-life sidewalk counselors outside an abortion facility on Sunday night. Veep, an HBO comedy starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus in it’s seventh and final season, had campaign staffer Amy Brookheimer (Anna Chlumsky) abort Dan Egan’s (Reid Scott) baby on the April 14 episode, titled “Pledge.”
What happens when you combine Nina Burleigh, liberal Newsweek writer who infamously wanted to give Bill Clinton oral sex for keeping abortion legal, with Cecile Richards, former president of billion dollar abortion giant Planned Parenthood? Only your typical pro-abortion media propaganda.
Teen Vogue columnist Isabella Gomez Sarmiento continues the magazine’s outrageous abortion propaganda in her April 9 article titled “Georgia's Fetal-Heartbeat Abortion Ban Is an Example of Shame Perpetuated Through Legislation” -- because shaming people is the worst thing you could possibly do, far worse than stopping a tiny human heartbeat. The author rails against Georgia House Bill 481, which prohibits abortion after a preborn baby’s heartbeat can be detected at about 6 weeks, while counseling teens that abortion is "completely normal."
Senator Kamala Harris appeared on Late Night With Seth Meyers on Thursday night and she was greeting with all the adoration you would expect from a liberal fanboy like Meyers.
Equal Pay Day, supposedly how far into the year women must work to earn the same amount men made the previous year, fell on April 2 this year (8 days earlier than last year) and of course Hollywood was all over it.
Fresh off skirting charges in Chicago, racial hoax artist Jussie Smollett is up for an NAACP Image Award and host Anthony Anderson has his back. Anderson, who will be hosting for the sixth year in a row, has a history of bashing conservatives and praising liberals as host.
Radical pro-abortion celebrities are threatening Georgia legislators over a new pro-life bill that would ban abortion at six weeks, or when an unborn baby’s heartbeat is first detectable. Referred to as heartbeat bills, these laws emphasize the truth about abortion: it ALWAYS stops a heartbeat.
Not only has the Mueller Investigation consumed the news media the last two years, its reach has also extended into entertainment television. Up until Friday, Hollywood celebrities were professing their love for Robert Mueller, so sure were they that the special prosecutor would find the evidence that President Donald Trump colluded with the Russians that would finally get him impeached.
Dr. Leana Wen got a hero’s welcome on The Daily Show With Trevor Noah on March 21. Noah gushed that Wen, who has now been the president of Planned Parenthood for 4 months, has “one of the most impressive resumes of any human being I have ever read” and has “been a badass from day one.”
Season 3 of CBS All-Access’ surreal drama The Good Fight returned last Thursday and critics can’t stop raving about the Trump-bashing show. A spin-off of the Emmy-winning The Good Wife, which ran on CBS from 2009-2016, The Good Fight ostensibly follows Diane Lockhart’s (Christine Baranski) work at a historically black Chicago law firm, but mostly documents her three year freak out over the election of President Trump.
