D-List Actress to Kimmel: Republicans Are Anti-Human Rights

Listen to the Article!

Hollywood, the land where political variance from liberal doctrine is viewed as nothing short of heresy. When a pseudo-celebrity utilizes their moment in the spotlight to make a leftist decree, you can bet it is on a late-night program. This is precisely what transpired on Tuesday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live with actress Ilana Glazer.

Glazer was invited on the show to promote her comedy special, The Planet is Burning (how original for a Hollywood production), and the conversation quickly veered into Republican-bashing territory. Kimmel inquired of Glazer’s plans to rally voters on her stand-up tour: “So people will come to a show, they will register to vote. They register to vote and then they will dance.”

Of course, these flash dance sessions never feature the inclusion of Republican candidates. As Glazer explained; "That's right…. And we invite a Democratic candidate up and I ask people, get their Instagram handle."

In a not so serious manner, Kimmel asked why it is only Democrats who take part in this “party” (even though he knows full well the answer); "Why only Democratic candidates? Don't you want everyone to vote?..." Glazer’s response served as a quintessential case in point as to why political polarization is so stark in this country:

No, no. It's just, like, maybe 20 years ago, maybe there could have been an interesting conversation between parties, but it's not even interesting anymore. It's like human rights versus anti-human rights. I'm over it…

It goes without saying, conservatives are part of a movement that extends those very human rights to the most vulnerable individuals among us in the womb.

And she wonders why people of opposing political views can’t have a civil dialogue? As if this was not insulting enough, she then went on to lambast Americans all across the country as “dumb” She attacked, “But it's like nobody on the coasts are smarter than people in the middle of the country. Everybody's just a dumb American I guess.”

The title of Glazer’s work then prompted a predictable discussion on climate change. Kimmel bemoaned: “So The Planet Is Burning. The planet is burning.” Glazer made sure to squeeze in her humanitarian spiel:

It is indeed…I'm like the planet is burning. The planet is burning. But you know, it's kind of funny in a sick way how the planet is burning and our leaders don't talk about it all day every day. Shouldn't we be solving the problem of the thing we're standing on?

Kimmel then made a parallel between the climate warming and Godzilla:

It seems that if there was a Godzilla for instance, that was burning everything, like Godzilla was shooting fire out of its mouth. Everyone, every country in the world would band together to kill this Godzilla. But we have a Godzilla.

This interview was hardly the first time Glazer fostered in liberal drivel. As evidenced here. Forgive the leaders you dismissed as “anti-human rights” if they are not so inclined to trust your political stances.

JIMMY KIMMEL: And now you have this stand-up comedy special which is called; The Planet is Burning, which makes it sound like if you're flipping through a documentary about climate change. You know-and that is part of-but that's not what it is.

ILANA GLAZER: No, it's like a stand up special that's funny and delightful.

KIMMEL: In Houston, Texas which seemed odd to me. Why Houston?

GLAZER: Yeah. It's like I'm-I guess I'm kind of known as a New York Jew. And then the only other place I go all the time is L.A. New York and L.A. and everybody's like coastal elites or whatever. But it's like nobody on the coasts are smarter than people in the middle of the country. Everybody's just a dumb American I guess.

KIMMEL: Yeah.

GLAZER: But when I've been on tour, it's so cool to see how actually progressive and diverse and queer and gay the middlde of the country is, and I find that in Texas too.

KIMMEL: Yeah. It's funny because people do come up with an image of what people in Houston are like and it's actually ridiculous to do that. I think Houston might be the most diverse city in the United States.

GLAZER: Yeah, I actually cut this joke from my special it didn't like work. But Texas is the place that made Beyonce and New York made Trump.

KIMMEL: That's true. They should be proud of that for sure.

GLAZER: Yeah. Why does New York get all this credit for being progressive? We made that guy. It's awful. It's so shameful. You're from New York. You should be ashamed.

KIMMEL: I am. And not just for that, there are a lot of things I'm ashamed of.

GLAZER: Good.

KIMMEL: So The Planet Is Burning. The planet is burning.

GLAZER: It is indeed. The title is like my lens through which I, yes, my comedy, because I'm sort of an optimistic nihilist. But also the lens through which I wake up and go to bed everyday. I'm like the planet is burning. The planet is burning. But you know, it's kind of funny in a sick way how the planet is burning and our leaders don't talk about it all day every day. Shouldn't we be solving the problem of the thing we're standing on?

KIMMEL: It seems that if there was a Godzilla for instance, that was burning everything, like Godzilla was shooting fire out of its mouth. Everyone, every country in the world would band together to kill this Godzilla. But we have a Godzilla.

GLAZER: It's almost like- oh were you going to say a punchline?

KIMMEL: No, there was no punchline.

GLAZER: I thought the President was the Godzilla, sorry.

KIMMEL: But thank you for thinking I might have one.

GLAZER: Yeah. It's almost like they think they're gonna get in trouble for admitting that planet is burning. Like it's gonna be their fault. It's like no bro it's not about you. You know? It's so pathetic and weak that they can't figure it out for us.

KIMMEL: We have to figure it out is the truth. It's on us to figure it out.

(...)

KIMMEL: So people will come to a show, they will register to vote. They register to vote and then they will dance.

GLAZER: That's right. I mean at my standup- that's right-. And we dance for like 15 minutes at a time. And then we like pause and I call it synagogue announcements. We pause for temple. And we invite a Democratic candidate up and I ask people, get their instagram handle. It's kind of like canvassing through Instagram because we are all scrolling, scrolling, scrolling all day.

KIMMEL: Why only Democratic candidates? Don't you want everyone to vote? And wouldn't it be funnier to see Republican candidates dance?

GLAZER: No, no. It's just like maybe 20 years ago, maybe there could have been an interesting conversation between parties, but it's not even interesting anymore. It's like human rights versus anti human rights. I'm over it I don't need to-

KIMMEL: I see.
