America’s therapist, fairy godmother and progressive fantasy candidate Oprah Winfrey might deserve a round of second looks when it comes to the quality of emotional schlock she has sold and promoted to millions of women. It seems that while she was doing public relations work on behalf of Brazilian “faith healer” “John of God,” he was collecting hundreds of rape accusations.
After Melania Trump called out the “opportunistic” media during an interview with Sean Hannity, and after the First Lady’s spokeswoman came to her defense during the ensuing media brouhaha, lefties in showbiz and the media have doubled down on the insults. They’ve taken to slamming Mrs. Trump as a “hypocrite” and a “birther,” while also hurling attacks at her “unrecognizable” appearance, particularly at her new, blonder hair.
Unfortunately, actress Alyssa Milano is back in the news again … again, and this time her activism seems to have taken on a new more insidious form. Parents be warned, the #metoo champion and physical embodiment of Brett Kavanaugh hatred has just signed a deal for a new line of children’s books that promote a healthy dose of progressive activism.
The cackling hyenas in Hollywood just can’t go five minutes without mocking anything the right values or what the American people want. In response to Donald Trump’s tough immigration meeting with Democrat leaders on Tuesday, several celeb whackos gleefully slammed the President for his “dumbass border wall,” getting Nancy Pelosi’s “foot up his ass,” and got in a few digs about Vice President Mike Pence’s marriage for good measure.
Over the weekend HBO premiered their new pro-migrant propaganda film. Titled Icebox, the HBO original is about a 12 year-old Honduran who is apprehended for illegally crossing the border and forced to languish in a child detention center. And of course, the media has taken the bait and praised the film for its personal look on how immigration law is ruining young lives, calling HBO’s portrayal a “public service.”
Beauty pageants could be approaching their biggest cultural watershed moment yet. Not only has Angela Ponce, the trans woman crowned 2018’s Miss Spain, become the first transgender to compete for the Miss Universe crown, she is poised to win the entire competition. She claims the victory would be “a win for human rights,” and a slam to conservatives and Trump.
In light of Hollywood’s rabid progressive and anti-Christian agenda, it’s refreshing — well almost shocking even — to find a heartfelt and genuine Christmas message being shared by one of the industry’s leading men. Jurassic World star Chris Pratt brought another much-needed Christian and pro-life message to audiences, claiming that the love he has for his son helps him understand “the capacity for our Father in heaven to love us.”
Author Garrard Conley wants the film adaptation of his novel Boy Erased: The Memoir to inspire people to realize that controversial “Gay conversion therapy” is “torture.” The movie Boy Erased has been pushed by the media for Oscar nods, with outlets hoping it might be the next LGBTQ film in line to win major industry nominations and awards, after 2016’s Moonlight and last year’s Call Me By Your Name. The media of course has been running cover for the film and at the same time subtly bashing Christian parents for even hinting that it may be wrong for kids to embrace homosexuality.
Is the pope Catholic? Judging by the latest news out of Rome, this week the answer is yes. Predictably, it’s not playing well with his biggest fans in the secular media. Now that Francis has come out against active homosexual priests, media liberals are calling him a “homophobe” and lamenting that he’s not as “cool” as they once thought. Indeed, when lefties note Papa Francisco is “still Catholic,” you know it isn’t meant as a compliment.
Yes the Sundance Film Festival is back and The New York Times is here to give you the rundown on all the notable contenders hitting this year’s indie film circuit. Of course, the big mentions broach the topics of lefty politics, sex, and serial killers, because what would Hollywood be without some in-your-face, culture-eroding material.
It’s old news that Miley Cyrus is both borderline insane and an avowed leftist who uses her devil-may-care schtick to get young people to think promiscuous sex, drugs, and liberal hobby horse issues are cool. The pop music star has just released a new music video for her song “Nothing Breaks Like A Heart,” and well, it’s quintessential Miley.
Comedian Amy Schumer has been feeling ill lately, apparently from a wicked combination of Trump Derangement Syndrome and the physical strain of being pregnant. On Tuesday, the I Feel Pretty actress posted an Instagram video of her vomiting before a big show, and despite how tasteless that was, she topped it off by sending a hateful message to “crackhead” Mississippi Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith and her “Confederate ass campaign.”
On Monday, Melania Trump unveiled her theme for this year’s White House Christmas decorations and, right on cue, celebrities and the media have started attacking her for it. The woman can’t get a break as last year her holiday style choices were described as being from “hell,” and now as something out of a “horror movie.”
Tensions have risen as members of the infamous migrant caravan have attempted to storm ports of entry at the U.S.-Mexican border near San Diego. Despite news of undeterred migrants throwing rocks at and charging the U.S. gates, the lefties in Hollywood over the weekend took to social media to declare that our government’s response is what’s actually criminal and lawless.
It’s a sneaky tactic that the left uses in order discredit a portion of sensible individuals who disagree with their politics: push the narrative that those folks are part of a divisive right-wing mob. Conservative Catholics in this day and age are susceptible to this, even being labeled “alt-right” because they don’t agree with homosexual lifestyles.
Since it’s the Thanksgiving season and we are practically at our wit’s end with the liberal garbage that pop culture constantly feeds us — particularly on mainstream television — it’s nice to take the time and sit back in gratitude for those rare fleeting moments where the showbiz industry shows some sense and appreciation for wholesome, traditional values.
Imagine saying “Playboy has lost its moral compass?” Well, based on the evidence, it has. A year ago Playboy Magazine featured it’s first “transgender playmate.” And just this past month it featured DC Universe superhero actor Ezra Miller spreading his legs in fishnet tights and high-heels for the camera. You have to wonder if Hef is spinning in his grave.
If you didn’t get what was significant about Thursday, November 15th, then maybe you just don’t understand that everyday of the calendar year is a solemnity celebrating diversity for diversity’s sake. Thursday’s festivities included Latina (ahem LatinX) actress Eva Longoria trashing President Trump and the white patriarchy for “attacking” her as both a Latino and as a woman.
For horror fans who often complain that slasher movies are bloated and played out, lefty Hollywood may have just found a way to inject new life into the subgenre. New film The Clovehitch Killer attempts to bring audiences a new menacing figure that plays right into liberal fears — the dreaded conservative, all-American dad who’s secretly a knife-wielding serial killer.
Aren’t all the funny people supposed to be on the left? They’re certainly not hanging out with YouTube producers Friend Dog Studios, which has produced an anti-conservative spoof of Christ’s teachings that’s as predictable and unfunny as DNC talking points.
