Another airport has just banned Chick-Fil-A from setting up shop on account of the fast food chain’s financial ties with Christian groups. Buffalo, New York’s regional airport just followed a San Antonio airport’s lead in being delusional enough to trust the judgment of crazy lefty outlet ThinkProgress and banned Chick-Fil-A on account of their supposed anti-LGBTQ discrimination.
Despite all the obstacles in its path, pro-life film Unplanned had quite a successful opening weekend. Surprising many, the film placed fifth in the weekend box office even with its limited release, boasted the “highest per screen average” of any indie film debut in US history, and almost tripled industry predictions for how much revenue it would generate.
In not-so-shocking-but-certainly-infuriating news, it’s been reported that several big cable television networks have refused to promote the new pro-life anti-Planned Parenthood movie, Unplanned. “It isn’t for lack trying on the part of marketers,” The Hollywood Reporter claimed. “It’s that their “efforts have been consistently rebuffed by TV networks.”
The 30th GLAAD Media Awards premiered Thursday night and per usual it was a celebration of all things gay in Hollywood and a skewering of the usual suspects, like Vice President Mike Pence. Still, there was one bit you might not expect to see at an openly gay awards show, with actor Sean Hayes slamming gay, black hate hoaxer Jussie Smollett.
Unplanned actress Ashley Bratcher had some choice words for Hollywood actress and left-wing gadfly/activist Alyssa Milano following the Charmed star’s criticism of Georgia’s pro-life “heartbeat bill.” In an open letter, Bratcher blasted Milano’s recent Deadline op-ed criticizing a new Georgia bill that would require physicians to abandon the abortion option upon detecting the heartbeat of an unborn baby.
In a not-so-subtle smear attempt, The Economist published a interview with conservative commentator Ben Shapiro and labeled him as a member of the “alt-right.” Shapiro is a mainstream conservative who has taken great pains to distance himself from right-wing fringe groups -- a devout Jew who often preaches about the dangers of tribalism and its destruction of reasonable discourse. After swift backlash the Economist amended the headline. Still, the incident demonstrates the left’s aggressive push to demonize conservative speakers and connect them through implication to unreasonable and even violent and fringe groups.
Chris Evans, the vocal progressive who plays the conservative patriot superhero Captain America, just got a full spread in The Hollywood Reporter. His lengthy interview was comprised of all the topics his Hollywood masters have given him permission to speak about, like how it’s his civic duty to trash talk Donald Trump, or the fact that he’d have to “cut ties” with a Tom Brady movie role, because the star QB may be a literal Trump supporter. Gee, Captain America sure sounds petty.
Yesterday’s dropping of all 16 Smollett hate hoax charges was a shocking display of contempt for truth, justice, and the everyday American citizen. The surprise prosecutorial decision blindsided the police and Democrat Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel called it a travesty. But the people closest to Smollett, who should have been the most circumspect with their reactions, decided to gleefully stick the news in the collective eye of annoyed Americans.
There’s no two ways about it: Robert Mueller is a heartbreaker. He led the Democrats, the media and Hollywood on for two years, loving them and leaving them with “No Collusion.” To Hollywood lefties, there’s nothing for it but sobbing into a pint of Haagen-Daaz. Hopefully, it’s Chocolate Chip Crow flavored.
Surprise! No collusion. Shocking, right? If you’re like any of these lefty celebs, you’re going through all the stages of grief, starting with denial.
The left’s war on Christian groups rages on. The San Antonio City Council recently denied Chick-Fil-A from opening airport concessions in the Texas city because of what the Council and lefty outlet Think Progress call Chick-Fil A’s “anti-LGBTQ donations.”
Empire creator Lee Daniels is finally backing off his defense of the boy-who-cried-MAGA, Jussie Smollett, and has admitted the “frustration” he and his colleagues have felt since the hate-hoaxer’s criminal charges. Took you long enough, man.
Welcome back to Hollywood’s little fantasy roundtable about how “heartless” America is and how progressive countries show us “what leadership looks like.”
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington appears to be the latest in a long line of Hollywood lefty Trump Derangement Syndrome victims. The actor behind the show's hero Jon Snow recently sat down with Variety to talk about the upcoming final season of HBO’s insanely popular, long-running medieval fantasy series, a shockingly-violent and sexually-disturbed drama that focuses on various royal bloodlines competing for the claim to the Iron Throne.
Comedian Jim Jeffries spent his Tuesday evening agonizing over the scourge of racism and what factors have contributed to it the most in recent years. As you’d expect coming from a showbiz lefty, he’s concluded the onus of racism is on right-wingers, whose desire for a “pointless wall” and faith in the power of “thoughts and prayers” leads to both radicalism and inaction in response to acts of hatred.
Never one to shy away from owning the libs, singer/songwriter Joy Villa turned heads at another red carpet with a new provocative style ensemble. At the premiere for pro-life/anti-Planned Parenthood movie Unplanned, Villa sported a hot pink latex dress emblazoned with the words “F*ck Planned Parenthood.”
Both Singer/songwriter Katy Perry and Clarence Thomas’ accuser Anita Hill will be honored at yet another political awards show next month. The idea of the this probably gets people wondering: “For what? Being fraudulent political hacks?”
Since the terrorist attack that killed 49 people in New Zealand happened, the media have been looking for someone (besides the shooter) to blame. Several of the more extreme and idiotic social media/Hollywood personalities have found it, close to home.
It’s the most pro-life segment you’re likely to see from NBC News. It’s also the most beautiful. On Friday morning, NBC’s Today aired a story showcasing the “special”-ness of each and every individual child’s life, by telling the story of one of its own.
If Hollywood’s #MeToo maxim “believe all victims” is to be held as some universal moral standard, then Johnny Depp’s side of the story must be given some serious credence as well. The actor has endured two years of media attacks over allegations of domestic abuse from ex-wife Amber Heard, however new evidence has surfaced that might indicate that Depp has been the abuse victim all along.
