No amount of money or hyperbole is too high for Democrats attempting to wrest control of the House and Senate from Republicans. It is shaping up to be a tough fight. What seems to be giving lefties confidence though, is the fact that they have the cash and pretty smiles of Hollywood’s finest to back them up.
It’s midterm season on mainstream television, so if talking politics is a must for your mid-morning routine, switch the channel over to Ellen. Lately, all her lefty friends have been making appearances to plug for the Democrat ticket. Viewers who tuned in on Thursday received a real treat. The always-unhinged progressive femmebot Chelsea Handler hit the famous off-white couches to talk about the impending apocalypse should Dems lose power during the midterm elections.
Virtue signal maiden Amy Schumer spent her Monday talking about how hard it is being a woman. She sat down for the latest episode of Dax Shepard’s podcast Armchair Expert to give her perspective on the daily struggles of life as a celebrity -- with all the hand wringing and pearl clutching we’ve come to expect from celeb interviews. In Schumer’s case, the whining is due to her bad luck being born female.
From their usual lack of coverage on the annual March for Life to treating pro-lifers as wholesale crazies, it’s clear that the media doesn’t want to face the intimate realities of legal baby killing. The recent film about the trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, not only tells his story, but shows how reluctant the media is to touch abortion, even if events surrounding it involve first degree murder.
Oh man, say what you will about Kanye, but the man’s great at reducing the left-wing media into a quivering and insecure pile of mush. The very fact that a prominent celebrity, who also happens to be a minority, has divorced himself from the showbiz victims’ circle has unleashed pure spite from his former colleagues. They have been stumbling over themselves to let him know that he’s no longer one of them, as he’s become an Uncle Tom.
If Tom Arnold was ever relevant, he’s working overtime to recapture that nanosecond. And his tactics are brilliant: act like a petulant baby. He was belligerent during his interview with Megyn Kelly, and quite combative during a recent sit-down with Ben Shapiro. Most recently, Arnold has been recorded being a complete jerk to Gosnell star Dean Cain, using politics as an excuse to smear and yell at him.
Where do we go as a nation in the wake of the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation? Is it possible to bridge the current partisan divide? Well, according to the writers at Vogue, to hell with that. The time is right for a French Revolution-style uprising. Since when did fashion bloggers turn into full-blown anarchists?
The confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh was a major political loss for the left-wing mob. As expected, all sorts of wailing and gnashing of teeth ensued, especially from Hollywood liberals who have apparently made it their life’s calling to engage in the hysteria. Many of them took to social media to vent their frustration, and their status updates were extreme to say the least.
Desperate as ever, lefties are ramping up their midterm marketing tactics. What’s the best way to drum up a Democratic turnout, especially among the younger crowd? Offering free tickets to a stuffy movie about female Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg of course. Well, Magnolia Pictures and Participant Media seem to think so. They announced free showings of their new movie On the Basis of Sex.
A new character assassination, er, I mean biopic about Vice President Dick Cheney is set to hit theaters this Christmas. Starring Christian Bale in the titular role, Vice appears to be less of a thoughtful political drama detailing Cheney’s role during the Bush years, and more of a gritty, gangster movie, depicting the vice president’s quest for absolute power.
Famous faces always do well in selling a product – and sex does even better. So if Carl’s Jr. can do it for burgers, why can’t Hollywood do it for midterm election votes? Same principle, right?
As Cory Booker is making it harder and harder to take him seriously, what with all his bloated grandstanding during the Kavanaugh hearing, coupled with the growing weight of his hypocrisy as an admitted groper of women, the Democratic senator has set his sights on political fundraising in Hollywood.
It’s been several days since the Ford/Kavanaugh hearing, and although there is nothing confirmed about either party’s testimony, the entire Democrat-Media Complex is ramping up the rhetoric that Brett Kavanaugh is a rapist. And what would an angry mob do to someone they’ve been led to believe is a monster? Destroy him and his family.
Men, get ready. The feminist rage is upon you. In light of the heated Kavanaugh/Ford hearings and Republican senators’ push to install Kavanaugh as a Supreme Court justice on Friday, the left has combusted, particularly unhinged women who see this as their doom.
The liberal commentary during the Kavanaugh/Ford hearing has gone from indignant to downright malevolent. After Kavanaugh sat down to begin his defense, lefties immediately began to mock the man as a drunk who definitely rapes women.
Hollywood lefties have already decided that Kavanaugh is a filthy rapist and that his accuser Dr. Ford is a paragon of bravery and a historical figure for women’s rights. Any attempt by Republicans in trying to get to the truth of this scandal has been met with nastiness and derision.
The Midterm elections are just two months away, and if some audiences weren’t aware of how important voting is, leave it to liberal celebrities to give a condescending civics lesson and drone on about the fragility of our democracy.
Jane Fonda has a new biopic being released on Netflix this week called Jane Fonda in Five Acts, so of course sat down for a tell-all with USA Today to talk about her life in the limelight, her struggles with insecurity, and that infamous anti-war photo prompting millions to dub her “Hanoi Jane” -- something she she says she deeply regrets.
Upon reports of a second sexual assault allegation against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, progressives on Twitter opened fire on the potential SCOTUS nominee on Monday with a barrage of slime. John Cusack had a field day with the Kavanaugh news, tweeting several slanderous statements against Republicans for their support of the judge.
Google keeps waving off concerns that they’ve been showing bias against conservative viewpoints. Yet new reports indicate that a group of the company’s programmers discussed ways they could use the search engine to combat Donald Trump’s travel ban online.
