Whenever the Catholic Church gets into any hot water, the liberal media is always there to fire off some ignorant criticism or scathing tirade. Of course, it’s the perfect opportunity to channel their ire for the Church, so why hold back? Daily Show host and liberal mascot Trevor Noah didn’t hold back with his anti-Catholic monologue on Wednesday.
It’s been a long time coming, but Disney finally committed to unveiling it’s very first official gay character. Exciting times, right? Well, for some, not quite. The news hasn’t been as exciting for the lefties against whitewashing and all things cultural appropriation, because actor Jack Whitehall is not gay.
Picture that one weird, older uncle you might have. You know, the one who appears to be losing his grip on reality as he sits on your back porch sipping craft beer, puffing a funny-smelling cigarette, and rambling on about how Bernie Sanders’ political musings are the answers America needs right now. That’s basically how actor Danny DeVito has been coming off lately.
In light of new conservative Supreme Court nominations, the left has been in abject fear over any possible restriction on abortion, and has been lashing out. Their new target is the Hollywood production of Roe v. Wade. And although director Nick Loeb has remained adamant that things are going smoothly and that he has been maintaining the cast and production levels he had originally planned to have, the scathing “fake news” reports have been circling his project.
You know what’s the best reason to subscribe to Billboard Magazine? No, not compelling artist interviews, or in-depth album reviews. It’s the hamfisted lectures on the evils of Donald Trump’s border policies that really make it worthwhile.
Remember the liberal mob’s motto: If the Democratic party loses an election, it’s not them or their message or ideas -- it’s the fault of some nefarious outside force. Predictably, lefty fingers are pointing today at mysterious Russian meddling, or votes earned by the Green Party -- or both.
It doesn’t seem to bother actor Peter Fonda that his insane lefty views are giving him a less than stellar reputation. Hot on the heels of scandalizing Barron Trump in a series of Twitter posts, the unhinged actor has taken to social media to advocate for illicit democrat voting tactics.
Last Friday, HBO debuted a new “woke” late-night series from an African-American cultural perspective. Titled Random Acts of Flyness, the show broached the current obsession with Black Lives Matter and “white supremacy,” providing material such as a satirical infomercial for a skin care product designed for caucasians called “White-Be-Gone.”
If PC can make 100-year-old statues disappear, it certainly can erase rock n’ roll songs. This summer’s deluxe re-issue of rock band Guns N’ Roses’ 1987 album, Appetite for Destruction, was packaged without an original song due to homophobic and racist content.
Look, white people, just don’t touch African American culture in any way, shape, or form. Just don’t. It’s not going to end well for you, no matter how benign your usage of black tropes are. Take it from poet Anders Carlson-Wee, who employed black vernacular in a poem and has had his reputation trashed for it.
Psst. Want to hear a joke? How about the one where Hillary Clinton -- you know, the woman who wasn’t going to “Stand By Her Man” until she did and enabled her husband’s sexual abuse and philandering -- claimed to be a women’s rights advocate? Hilarious, isn’t it? While a joke for sensible people, Hillary has been quite insistent that she stands on the shoulders of the giants of the women’s movement.
You know the Emmys. You know the Oscars. You always hear about -- but honestly, never pay attention to -- the Golden Globes. But have you heard about the new lefty-run awards show, “The Golden Probes?” If your initial thought was, “Hmm, that sounds kind of dirty,” you’re right. Innuendos aside, the premise of the event is pretty foul.
Hollywood hypocrisy is the gift that keeps on giving. Various identity groups like GLAAD have been hammering the entertainment media industry to putting more and more “marginalized” groups on screen, and now there’s a liberal university study railing for better quota fulfillment.
Hysteria has been coursing through the left at the thought of Donald Trump’s conservative policies turning America into some right wing dystopia. So much so that liberals have turned to using the fictional land of Gilead from Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale as a warning for the kind patriarchal doom that could befall our society.
Last Thursday, Hillary Clinton showed up to a Broadway performance of Hello Dolly! and was given a rather warm welcome. Bette Midler, one the production’s stars, claimed that Clinton’s appearance made everyone in attendance “unbelievably happy.”
What’s the best way to look like a raging hypocrite? Well there are plenty of options. A good one might be to openly applaud vandalism against a celebrity’s Walk of Fame star, and then turn around and preach the lefty gospel of peace, love, tolerance. Several big celebrity names took to Twitter to express their glee over the fact that Donald Trump’s Hollywood star had been destroyed by some vengeful lefty freedom fighter.
Rapper Black Thought has unveiled a new music video, titled “Rest in Power,” that goes hand in hand with an upcoming BET and Paramount documentary of the same name. Both intend to shed light on the tragedy of Trayvon Martin, the kicker being that the productions are sympathetic to him as an innocent victim, and provide a lionizing image of the Black Lives Matter movement.
The Trans Moment is here, with less than one percent of the population is now calling the cultural shots for the entertainment industry. Pressured by LGBTQ groups and their allies, Scarlett Johansson recently stepped down from her role as a trans person in the film Rub & Tug.
Following The Daily Caller’s revealing the identity of its founder, the lefty ad-targeting group known as Sleeping Giants took to Twitter to defend itself.
