Climate change, “actress/activists,” galas, what’s not to love?
It’s always refreshing when an actor decides to say what he thinks about American politics – especially when that actor is British. Not.
Feminism started off as a great idea. But now it’s spinning out of control.
The former president who is finally facing backlash for his actions in the White House gets a thumbs up review from an MSNBC host. Nicolle Wallace published a surprisingly positive review of Bill Clinton’s book, The President is Missing, in the New York Times on June 5.
The whole purpose of the Roseanne revival was to bring some balance to the more left-wing fare being offered to television audiences. Ironically, as ABC rushes to find a replacement for their now scrapped Roseanne show, talks are apparently in session to create a spinoff focused on the character of Darlene, without pesky Trumpish talking points.
Progressives in the media have no respect for the traditions and structure of the branches of the government. As soon as one issues a decision based on anything but liberal ideology, the world is over.
It’s always something to hear a over-privileged millennial actress complain about how hard it is to live in America. But the politically charged actress Shailene Woodley didn’t mince her words in an interview with New York Magazine’s Vulture.
In the world of celebrity scandals, there is a controversy brewing: should one’s political leanings be made part of the scandal? The answer depends on what those political leanings are. Broadcast network coverage of recent major scandals makes that abundantly clear.
It seems as if social media platforms are forcing people to think in a certain way. In a letter to a director of Twitter, feminist group Fair Play for Women, based in the United Kingdom, accused Twitter of playing into transgender ideology by banning anyone who dared to speak up about it. Attached the letter were several screenshots of members of Twitter who had been banned for criticizing or speaking about transgender politics.
It's so odd to watch a liberal celebrity say one thing “for the sake of unity,” and then take it back a few sentences later.
Being woke is a constant struggle in these ever-changing times.
Actress and activist Jane Fonda, (starring in a new film this weekend about rich sad white women called Book Club), wrote a blog piece about how racism is perpetuated in America. In her hard-hitting celebrity analysis, she wrote that Trump, rooted in the “bedrock of White Supremacy,” has a “fear of multiracial unity.”
Social media platforms must work with both sides of the political spectrums if they wish to maintain neutrality. That was the message to top social media companies from a top Republican.
For all that the Democrats talk about feminism and equality for women, they sure have a knack for linking themselves to Hollywood sex scandals.
It’s ironic to watch people who advocate for women’s rights and pro-abortion policies stand by men who have been accused of sexual harassment.
Entertainment media’s obsession with first female presidents continues to spiral out of control. Netflix’s new film, First Ladies, starring Jennifer Aniston and Tig Notaro, focuses on the rise of the “first female president” who also happens to be lesbian.
Don’t ever threaten the liberals’ imagined right to abort. It might just be unsafe. After the Trump administration proposed that health clinics such as Planned Parenthood could not accept federal funds and provide abortions, feminists and media figures raised an uproar.
Sympathy and charity are the natural reactions to a tragedy. Using the deaths of innocent people as an immediate platform for political gain is inhuman. So, naturally, that’s the route Hollywood elitists chose to take just hours after the school shooting in Santa Fe that left 10 dead and several injured.
It wouldn’t hurt some people to crack open a history book. Reading The Federalist Papers might be too much to ask of some of Hollywood’s elite, but they could at least sparknote it.
Why Hollywood directors feel the need to levy their judgment on the current state of politics is anyone’s guess. Somehow the elite feel that wealth and media exposure gives them a virtuous pulpit to preach from.
The United States is proud to have Israel as an ally. But you’d never know it from watching the liberal media’s reactions to the new U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem. As the embassy opened on Monday, May 14, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that it “was the right thing to do,” and praised Trump. On Twitter, back in the states, the media raged. Women’s March co-founder Linda Sarsour tweeted, “Today is a sad and enraging day. #Jerusalem.”
