Things do get complicated when you enter the funhouse of progressive identity obsession.
On Friday, September 1, L’Oreal Paris fired Munroe Bergdorf, its newly hired transgender model for making comments about racism on Facebook. The model complained that white people “don’t even realize or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism.” The remarks were deleted and the model was promptly fired from L’Oreal.
On Wednesday and Thursday nights, FNC’s The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld offered moving commentaries about how the liberal media’s attempts to indict the American people as perpetually divided have utterly failed as exhibited by the Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts. Gutfeld also discussed how Harvey has shown that the basic safety of each and every person in the face of death is what matters and not petty debates like replacing Columbus Day and taking down Confederate Statues.
In the aftermath of the Charlottesville violence, the press is so willing to latch onto anything in entertainment as relevant to the world as they see it. Even if it makes Texans the villains in the midst of a disaster of epic proportions. On August 25, the B movie, Bushwick, was released and desperate critics noticed it. What would have been merely ignored by film reviewers in a previous time, or dismissed as violent and shallow, instead received glowing reviews from such sources as The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, and Vulture. The plot focused around a fantasy where Texas secedes from the United States, and starts a second civil war.
Public service announcements are supposed to benefit the public. But when wealthy Hollywood celebrities create them, it’s to push their left-wing agenda -- everything from attacking President Donald Trump to promoting an anti-Christian anti-conservative hate group. The latest PSA features celebrities urging viewers to donate to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). It aired on CBS August 26, and starred 7 celebrities from sports, movies and TV. This video was the 19th celebrity PSA made in the past 14 months.
A funny thing happened on my way recently to read an online USA Today story about Colin Kaepernick's football equipment being displayed in a Smithsonian exhibit on Black Lives Matter. Between the headline and the story appeared a "SportsPulse" video, hosted by Trysta Krick. I decided to watch the short video and opted instead to write on the double-barreled leftist diatribe heralding liberal athletes and attacking President Trump.
Another awards show means another chance for MTV to pretend to be relevant. Kudos to trying to have one about music for a change, but that never seems to make the tone-deaf liberal argument disappear. Much like its earlier movie awards show, the VMAs proceeds to make room in its three-hour lineup for more parroting and edge-pushing.
Regardless of how childish something might be, the left will praise any action if it appears to be in agreement with their ideals. For example, take the Patriot Prayer Freedom Rally, scheduled to happen over August 26 and 27. After Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi decided it was a “white supremacist rally,” the people of San Francisco swallowed the lie and decided to protest--by leaving dog feces on Crissy Field before the rally. And Bustle reported the protest as “genius.” Apparently, no one saw that transexuals and minorities would be speaking at the rally.
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is in trouble again with his Moral Superiors. His problem, of course, is that he cannot throttle his B.S. Detector. It seems he acquired a B.S. Detector at some point in life that has usually served him well. It certainly did during his long years in business, and it has during his brief time in politics. Now, however, it is problematic.
Como declaró el presidente Trump hace poco, muchos medios de prensa tienen un verdadero festín en estos días dándoles plataformas de publicidad a los grupos que fomentan el odio, en ambos extremos del espectro político del país.
Even when President Trump says the right thing, it’s wrong. Or at least, that’s what the left- reigned media continues to spin. CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote a Monday night article entitled “Donald Trump’s Afghanistan speech ended up being all about Charlottesville” in which he made the grasping claim that President Trump’s patriotic and otherwise Afghanistan-related speech was yet another failed attempt to wash over his supposed white-supremacist agenda.
As President Trump recently stated, many media outlets are currently having a field day giving platforms to hate groups, on both ends of the country’s political spectrum.
Wesley Morris, the New York Times critic at large with a focus (or obsession) with race in entertainment, declared a “white supremacy summer” on television and in the movies in a long essay posted Wednesday, “In Movies and on TV, Racism Made Plain.” Earlier headlines were even more provocative: “In Virginia and on TV, A Supremacist Summer,” and the URL suggests that the phrase “white hot supremacist summer” made a headline appearance as well.
