On Friday’s edition of Real Time, host Bill Maher devoted part of his closing monologue to trashing Attorney General Bill Barr. While the attack on Barr was probably expected, few could have predicted that the HBO host would use Barr as a pretense to tear into his religion, which Maher referred to as the “cult” of Catholicism.
When lefties get upset, accusation of, or allusions to, racism can start flying. The left is very upset about states passing laws restricting abortion. On cue, Daily Beast writer Barrett Holmes Pitner composed a piece claiming that Alabama’s recent pro-life legislation is borrowed from old pro-slavery America and Jim Crow. The point, ladies, is that the South’s gonna do it again, and this time they’re gonna put “‘y’all back” in chains (hat tip Joe Biden).
Wednesday at the hot topics table, the hosts of ABC’s The View criticized the abortion banning bill that was passed in the Alabama Senate last night. Co-host Joy Behar cried sexism, while Whoopi Goldberg complained about religion influencing politics, and Sunny Hostin argued with Meghan McCain over the meaning of pro-life.
Most Hollywood liberals not only don’t live in Alabama, they don’t visit the state either. But that hadn’t stopped their fury over the state’s attempt to limit the availability of abortion. After the Alabama state senate voted 25-6 in favor of what the liberal media are attacking as a “near-total abortion ban” on May 15, celebrities who celebrate and revere abortion rights reacted on Twitter as if they were possessed and splashed with holy water.
Fox’s Star season finale aired May 8, and along with it came the long-awaited American Sound Awards (ASA) ceremony, where the girl band, Take 3, is up for Best Pop Album. To start the awards show is a sacrilegious music performance, from the singer everyone loves to hate, Lil Dini (Marcos Palacios), and up-and-coming rapper Rashad (Major).
It takes one “smirk” from a conservative teen in a MAGA hat to generate a national news meltdown, yet prolonged verbal harassment from a Democratic state representative towards an older woman praying in protest at a Planned Parenthood clinic hardly gets any mainstream attention. Neither ABC, CBS or NBC nightly news programming paid any attention to Pennsylvania State Representative Brian Sims’ 8-minute plus video of him bullying a peaceful pro-life protester.
On Monday's Cuomo Prime Time, as Chris Cuomo moderated a debate between left and right on new state laws that challenge Roe v. Wade, the CNN anchor blatantly advocated the liberal point of view as he fretted that such laws take America "backwards," and even accused former Republican Senator Rick Santorum of violating his Catholic faith by "lying" about the issue.
Pro-life film Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer continues it’s hot streak of indie film success with Director Nick Searcy winning “Best Director” over the weekend. Film producers Ann McElhinney, Phelim McAleer, and Magdalena Segieda released a statement congratulating Nick Searcy on his achievement and thanked the film’s supporters and pro-life community for continuing to make Gosnell a success.
Ryan Saavedra of the Daily Wire did a little Internet searching to reveal the differing "news judgment" on Catholic kids vs. Muslim kids. He tweeted on Saturday: "CNN wrote 23 articles on Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann...CNN has *not* reported on the kids in Philadelphia who were allegedly singing about chopping people’s heads off." But it's not just CNN. Almost everyone skipped Muslim girls reading hate poetry.
Univision’s news division continues to display chronic anti-Catholic bias, this time by injecting church sounds and imagery into a story about the Scouts, that has nothing to do with the Roman Catholic Church.
Two Catholic churches were bombed in Sri Lanka on Easter, leading to hundreds of deaths. But Comedy Central host Trevor Noah thinks this a great time to mock the Catholic Church for making huge sex-abuse settlements...years ago. Noah showed NBC News footage, with morning host Sheinelle Jones reporting that while a billion dollars has been pledged for the rebuilding of Notre Dame cathedral, protesters are complaining "the needs of the poor are going unmet." Noah suggested the Catholic Church, a billion dolllars is "nothing to them....like three child abuse settlements."
Outraged about the hundreds of people blown to shreds as they were (in Dem PR-speak) Easter worshipping in Sri Lanka? You might be a member of the “far-right.” So say the Washington Post’s Adam Taylor and Rick Noack. The pair sought to delegitimize anger at the Islamist barbarism by reactions from “far-right” figures in Europe and the U.S.
