Remember when network morning talk shows would try brighten the viewers’ day with sunshine-y and hopeful stories about the world being a great place? Yeah, those fond memories feel like they’re from a century ago, especially when one sees Good Morning America pushing Kate Hudson’s rules for raising “genderless” babies as their feel-good cover story for early-risers.
Editors note: This article has been corrected. Originally, it falsely claimed Sarah Beattie was a writer for SNL. Subsequently we discovered that was not the case and we apologize.
On Monday, actress and comedian Sarah Beattie posted a crude Twitter status offering lewd sex acts for anyone willing to harm Nicolas Sandmann, the Catholic teen accused of racism for merely standing in front of a triggered native American man.
In the wake of the petty insults leveled at Vice President Mike Pence and his wife on the part of the LGBTQ-obsessed media, Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins appeared on Fox & Friends January 21 to remind conservatives that this is not just routine slander against politicians, but reflects the left’s desire to eradicate Christian education in America.
Lady Gaga started off her new Las Vegas residency, dubbed “Enigma,” with a political bang. The famous avant-garde singer, now A-list actress, took time out of her Saturday show to blast Vice President Mike Pence as a “disgrace” to his Christianity, and complained to the crowd about the “fucking president” not getting the government back up and running.
The Mr. & Mrs. Mike Pence hate train has been receiving quite a few guests onboard in the last week, what with Huffington Post and several CNN anchors insisting that the Second Lady is a homophobic bigot for working at a devout Christian school. Now that VP Mike Pence has come to her defense, more lefties are calling him an “extremist” who exists in the same camp as actual hate-peddlers like Louis Farrakhan and the Ku Klux Klan.
This year’s March for Life is brandishing a new tagline that is sure to rile up members of the liberal establishment. The March’s theme will be “Unique from Day One: Pro-Life is Pro-Science,” a tagline that almost seems calculated to trigger liberals who say they “f*cking’ love science! In response, Washington Post religious writer Julie Zausmer teed up her best, “Nuh uh, that’s not science!” rebuttal, and backed it up with more of the same tired pro-choice arguments.
Imagine a Christian school that believes what Christians have believed for 2,000 years, and what everybody believed until the day before yesterday! Now imagine a believing Christian agreeing to work for that believing Christian school! Now, (and get ready to shift your outrage gear to nuclear) imagine that Christian was none other than second lady of the United States Karen Pence, an unapologetic Christian married to unapologetic Christian and VP Mike Pence.
There’s good news and bad news if you’re one of the tens of thousands of pro-lifers headed for Friday’s annual March for Life in D.C. The good news is that the more young people know about abortion, the more likely they are to oppose it. The bad: the media knows that too. So no matter how huge your March is or how compelling your facts, they’re not going to give you a fair shake.
The wait is almost over for Hollywood’s big Roe v. Wade film as an exclusive first look has been released online. The teaser, unveiled on Monday, features some new details about the film including the fact that Hollywood conservative superstar Jon Voight will be portraying Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger. The trailer is also set to have a grand unveiling for the crowds at this Friday’s annual March for Life in Washington, D.C.
Yesterday Gillette decided to use its authority as “The Best a Man Can Get” to school men in the art of proper post-#MeToo behavior. In an ad brimming with PC condescension, the shaving company held men in general accountable for the existence of “toxic masculinity.” In short, many people are not happy about it. BBC reported that Gillette is currently receiving major backlash and a wide boycott of its brand.
It turns out there are still a few good-humored, politically-incorrect folks in Hollywood after all. Over the weekend, lefty-bashing street artist provocateurs publicly slammed HBO’s Bill Maher with a satirical billboard depicting him not as the thought leader he imagines himself to be, but as a rote purveyor of mainstream liberal propaganda. Specifically he was made fun of as being an “NPC.”
As Tom Petty once sang, even the losers get lucky sometimes. The anti-Trump media has done a horrible job trying to convince Americans we shouldn’t have a wall at the southern border. But lo and behold, they’ve received a little gift from the gods -- a bit of serendipity to grasp at in the absence of an argument. A few days ago, writers for both CBS online and Variety uncovered an old 1950s TV episode in which a manipulative “con man” named Trump convinces a fear-stricken town to buy his wall. When you’re a partisan hack, that’s more than a whacky coincidence. It’s a fateful lesson from the past because the show’s plot twists “closely mirror what is happening today.”
The announcement of Donald Trump’s oval office address regarding the crisis at the southern border has set the entire media machine on a tailspin of hatred and outrage. Trump refuses to back down on strong border policy, and progressives refuse to act sane. The worst examples include Hollywood stars on Twitter, who are screaming to high heaven about how wrong and “fucked up” this all is.
Everyone’s favorite “Bad Motherf*cker” and recurring Quentin Tarantino flick actor, Samuel L. Jackson has just endorsed new Michigan Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib’s use of his favorite expletive. Can this Hollywood crap get any more stupid?
Last month, normally progressive PBS provided a transparent portrayal of the devastation abortion inflicts on the African American community. The special, titled “Anti-Abortion Crusaders: Inside the African American Abortion Battle,” surprised conservative media critics by giving voice to the message that “the most dangerous place for an African American child is in the womb.”
Sounds like some comedians are finally starting to notice that their bread and butter may be at stake. On Friday, comedian and Adam Sandler sidekick Rob Schneider took to twitter to defend fellow comics Kevin Hart and Louis C.K., who have been recently put in the doghouse for their un-PC jokes. Regardless of whether you’re willing to defend either comedians, you have to admit that Schneider made some good points about outrage culture.
2018 was declared the “Year of the Woman” by the Hollywood feminist horde, yet once again studies have shown that such progressive grandstanding amounted to, well, grandstanding. On January 3, Variety took another look under Hollywood’s diversity hood and found that women suffered “Radical Underrepresentation” in the industry during 2018
Democrats have readied themselves to take their majority in Congress, and their biggest Hollywood fans have started celebrating as if it was their Christmas and New Year’s all rolled into one.
Facebook’s massive hate speech policies were blasted by The New York Times Thursday. The Times detailed Facebook’s current hate-speech failsafe controls as essentially “a network of workers using a maze of Powerpoint slides spelling out what’s forbidden.”
Talk about seeing a silver lining in a market downturn. Grist columnist Eric Holthaus, a meteorologist and "ecosocialist,"
wants readers to know that a massive U.S. economic recession might be good news. Not for people but for Mother Earth.
