The second round of Democratic presidential debates featured another helping of radical leftwing ideas, including $500 billion in slavery reparations, and repealing or altering the Second Amendment. But curiously, one major progressive issue, abortion, was left out in the cold – which sparked the public ire of abortion giant Planned Parenthood and other “reproductive healthcare” disciples.
Vogue Magazine published a piece over the weekend detailing just how hard it can be for children to live in a world doomed by global warming. Talking about “eco-anxiety,” the article claimed that some children are dealing with debilitating fears of world-ending climate change. Vogue tried to offer tips for parents trying to dispel such fears, but we think a much clearer solution would be for dingbat parents to stop convulsing about the world ending in 12 years or that we are all doomed because of greenhouse gases.
Billboard and The Hollywood Reporter have recently announced their first annual upcoming LGBTQ+ convention. Dubbed the “Pride Summit,” the event is purported to be a massive get together of industry execs and their media friends to shove more “LGBTQ visibility” into every minute of Americans' screen watching, music-listening time.
Cheers and Look Who’s Talking star Kirstie Alley is bringing the heat against fellow Hollywood denizen Bette Midler over the actress’ “racist” and “degrading” tweets directed at President Donald Trump and his African American supporters. Midler, a rabid anti-Trumper and progressive reactionary, took her usual shots at the president on Wednesday, though this time it backfired.
What’s one more woke comic book action series in the litany of woke comic book action series? HBO is set to premiere its new mainline superhero series based on the legendary Watchmen graphic novel in the fall, and guess what societal threat our crime fighters will be dealing with this time: White supremacy.
Hollywood financiers are investing in the local contender this presidential election season, donating far and away the most money to California Senator Kamala Harris’ campaign out of all the Democratic candidates. Harris has received a whopping 48% of all candidate donations from Hollywood since beginning her campaign, making it clear who movie industry players want to see in the White House in 2021.
If you’re a Hollywood lefty hoping for the total annihilation of President Donald Trump, then Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony on Wednesday was your day of vindication — well it was supposed to be anyways.
Guys, before you tuck into your avocado toast and soy latte, get your phone out of your man-bag and click on over to The Hollywood Reporter for a discussion of “toxic masculinity.” Batman V. Superman and Zombieland actor Jesse Eisenburg discussed his new film The Art of Self-Defense with THR, praising the movie’s message as being a critique of said “toxic masculinity.”
British comedian Ricky Gervais has been called “transphobic” over defending women refusing to wax transwomen in Canada because they are uncomfortable dealing with their clients’ very male genitalia. Gervais defended the spa workers saying that it’s “real feminism” for women to choose who to wax or not, but internet users aren’t having it.
Here’s a positive one for you. Wildly popular Youtube personality and Twitch video game streamer “Ninja” is telling his fans about his mother’s choice to give birth rather than aborting him at the behest of doctors. Ninja told Live Action about his pro-life story and how grateful he is for his mother choosing life.
You know, there are plenty of Econ 101 students who could tell you that raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour is a bad thing for the U.S. economy. Plenty of waiters and busboys, too. So the counter argument must get away from the facts of the issue and offer something a little more emotionally-charged, like “the racist history of tipping,” in order to push for higher wages in the service industry.
The 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing should be a celebration that has no trouble getting off the ground -- it’s widely recognized as one of America’s greatest achievements. However, Houston, we have a problem. There is no milestone or achievement we can commemorate in these woke days that doesn’t provoke a scolding “yes, but,” statement from the unhappy left.
Chris Pratt has gotten himself into some hot water in the last couple of days for wearing the classic Gadsden “Don’t Tread on Me” flag T-shirt. It’s racist, don’t ya know, having been adopted by Idaho Hitler Youth groups and Waffen SS sewing circles. But then again, some portion of Americans are dumb enough to let Colin “Pig Socks” Kaepernick tell them the Betsy Ross flag symbolizes slavery. Why not go down this rabbit hole too?
The 2019 Emmy nominations have been unveiled and (not so) surprisingly there are lots of lefty Hollywood specimens up for the illustrious TV awards. While many of you might be actually excited to see these people awarded for talent, we’re here to focus on which liberal heartthrobs get their rear-ends kissed by the industry the most.
Hear that siren? That’s the sound of Washington Post’s morality police pulling up to shame bachelors for holding their potential spouses to any standard whatsoever. The outlet wrote a praising piece of the latest episode of The Bachelorette in which Hannah Brown rebuked suitor Luke for being dissapointed that she was having sex with some of the other contestants. What a sicko, eh?
Singer/songwriter Janelle Monae is furious with pretty much everyone in Washington over “xenophobic” Trump’s recent “racist” tweets to Democratic congresswomen.
While you were enjoying your weekend, the identity politics wars were heating up. If you’re waking up on Monday with your head spinning, it’s probably because you’re seeing headlines about a new African American 007, Scarlett Johansson taking a modest stand against PC culture and then being forced to walk it back (while bashing white males, of course) and about the outrage mob smearing Rihanna for looking a little too ethnic in a Chinese edition of Harper’s Bazaar.
Actor John Lithgow has been a busy bee lately, not only focusing on his decorated Hollywood career but also writing a book of political poetry about Donald Trump’s “corrupt” administration. In a video posted by The New Yorker’s Twitter account, Lithgow read an excerpt from his poetry on Trump’s relationship now-resigned Department of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta, a man Lithgow believes covered for sex trafficker, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
Well, it was bound to happen. One of the woke writers at The Washington Post found something political to nitpick about Disney’s remake of The Lion King. Rather than let everyone enjoy one of childhood’s great classics, Dan Hassler-Forest tried to burst the bubble, pointing out how it’s a “fascistic story” that “incorporates the white supremacist’s worldview.”
Miley Cyrus is in a state of rage. The sex-obsessed, eco-frenzied feminist pop star sat down with fashion magazine Elle to bash the patriarchy and the fossil-fuel devouring fools from previous generations who have handed millenials a “piece of shit planet.”
