Pop music diva Mariah Carey made Twitter waves Monday with a photo of the singer posing with America’s favorite former first couple, the Clintons, complete with a passive aggressive caption aimed at disparaging President Trump. Carey of course couldn’t pass up on the opportunity for a photo with Hillary and Bill and thank them for “everything [they] have done for the country.”
Scoring five goals in one game can give a pro soccer player an inflated sense of self importance on matters of public policy. Philadelphia Union winger Alejandro Bedoya got so full of himself on his huge day Sunday in D.C., that he dictated a gun control demand to Congress. USA Today's For The Win sports blog denied it was a call for gun control and labeled it "patriotism at its best."
A couple of country music’s prominent female singer/songwriters came out for gun control legislation in the wake of both the El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio shootings, which claimed the lives of 29 people total. Grammy Award-winning artists Kacey Musgraves and Maren Morris took to social media over the weekend to make impassioned pleas for “common sense” gun control. It’s quite an interesting look for the music genre which prides itself on deeply rooted American values and the rural lifestyle, something guns and hunting are an indelible part of.
On August 4th, two horrific shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio shocked the nation. Americans from coast to coast were nonplused that such atrocious acts could be committed by their compatriots, and unfortunately, many are already using these events as political clubs to beat the drum for gun control. They scapegoat guns as the root issue, ignoring the possible cultural influences.
In the wake of the El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio shootings over the weekend, Hollywood leftists decried the Second Amendment and blamed President Donald Trump and Republicans for the carnage. Celebrities, including Avengers star Don Cheadle, rapper Cardi B, Golden State Warriors Coach Steve Kerr and pop star Bebe Rexha, blasted President Trump and Republicans for inspiring the violence through “racist” rhetoric and lamented the lack of gun-control.
The first season of HBO’s Euphoria has finally come to a close, and it could not come fast enough. This teen drama ranks among the worst shows of the year with its blatant sexual propaganda, and it all comes to a head with quite possibly the worst subject yet: teen abortions.
Barely a week after the premiere of Amazon’s The Boys, we’re back to the same ultra-violence, gore, and blasphemy from the same twisted minds behind AMC’s Preacher. Fortunately, this is the final season of Preacher, so unlike The Boys, this should be the last we hear from this show. Unfortunately, we still have to get through this awful season.
For the second year in a row and following the horrific shootings in Dayton and El Paso, social justice warriors have politicized the Pro Football Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Champ Bailey and Ed Reed exploited their Hall of Fame platform to position gun violence and racism as America’s biggest issues. A year ago, Hall of Fame inductee Randy Moss wore a tie politicizing the deaths of several African-American men. Carron J. Phillips, a social justice writer for The Shadow League, championed all three former NFL stars as "true patriots."
Members of the sports media were thrilled when the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday night took four President Trump fans not "out to the ball game," but out of "the old ball game." Doing their best to make Baltimore baseball horrible again by taking an 11-2 shellacking from Toronto, the cellar-dwelling Orioles removed the fans for displaying a large Make America Great Again banner advocating for the re-election of President Donald Trump in 2020.
Hulu's Four Weddings and a Funeral tv adaptation is...odd. Co-created by Richard Curtis, who created the original movie, and Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project), I had high hopes that this team could deliver a heartfelt, funny comedy that either left out the politics or was somewhat balanced. Instead, Republicans and conservatives are overtly insulted and mocked.
For those of you looking to wash your hands of both parties next election day, there’s likely to be a healthy selection of high-profile write-in candidates for you to alleviate your conscience with. Along with fan favorites like, the Sweet Meteor of Death, and legendary meme gorilla Harambe (may he Rest in Power,) Bette Midler is promoting herself as a “write-in candidate” for 2020.
How low can some media members go? Try knee level. In his post, "Missed Opportunity: Taking a Knee at the Debates", Splinter blogger Hamilton Nolan says Wednesday night's Democrat presidential hopefuls blew a golden opportunity by not kneeling for the national anthem. Evidently the media now look to NFL reject Colin Kaepernick as a role model for presidential wannabes on the Left.
