Avengers: Endgame actor Mark Ruffalo is a major Bernie Bro. When he’s not starring in his fourth Marvel comic adaptation of the year, you can find the Hollywood leftie Hulking out over the socialist presidential candidate on Twitter and going green (in more ways than one) over the Vermont senator’s climate change initiatives.
South Park's newest episode, "Let Them Eat Goo" which aired Wednesday mocks LeBron James and his lack of defense of free speech in the current crisis of Hong Kong against China. The episode concentrates on diets and plant-based foods, and on the students at South Park's public school who are protesting the unhealthy food they are being fed, especially meat from animals.
Earlier this week, Newsbusters' Gabriel Hays exposed Golden State Warriors' woke coach Steve Kerr for saying nothing about China's brutal crackdown on freedom-seeking Hong Kong citizens. "If only he would be as circumspect when gun control or Donald Trump are at issue,'' Hays wrote. No sooner said than done. In a Thursday press conference, Kerr gave China another pass, ridiculed President Trump and condemned America for abuses and gun violence.
The recent Chinese/NBA debacle is a time of reckoning for folks who take athlete activism seriously. In the past, superstar Golden State Warrior captain Stephen Curry has been quite vocal about status quo lefty politics and his hatred for Donald Trump, but like his coward coach, Steve Kerr, the outspoken can’t star seem to find an answer when asked about actual oppression from the NBA’s business partner, the communist Chinese government.
The South Park episode "Band in China" that aired Wednesday night exposed the brutalities and human rights abuses of the Communist government and we're feeling pretty good about it. The episode slammed the entertainment industry for allowing Communist China to censor content produced in the United States.
The New York Times will go to great lengths to whitewash international Communism, either by leaving out atrocities committed in its name or by demonizing America’s side of the Cold War. The latter strand was in evidence on the front page of Sunday’s New York Times in international trade and economics reporter Ana Swanson’s “Red Scare Grows in Washington, Now With China as Boogeyman," which reduced America's Cold War strategizing to a "paranoid...Red Scare."
On Wednesday night, controversy broke over President Trump’s Memorial Day Weekend visit to Japan when Wall Street Journal White House reporter Rebecca Ballhaus tweeted that the White House wanted the U.S.S. John McCain “out of sight” for Trump’s visit. She also reported that “a tarp was hung over the ship’s name” and that sailors “who wear caps bearing the ship’s name were given the day off.” It soon went viral and refueled President Trump’s longstanding feud with late Senator John McCain.
LAS VENTAS, MADRID — I am supposedly on holiday in Madrid. I take a break from politics, from public policy, from culture, and take in life in the country. In Spain that means the bullfight. Las Ventas is the major league in Spanish bullfighting, and I am not disappointed in what I see. These are fine bullfighters and ferocious bulls, though I wish Spaniards would give more consideration to the safety of the bulls. This evening, I saw six bulls slain and two bulls pull up lame. At least those lame bulls did not taste the sword.
Presidential contenders are in a battle to out give one another. Senator Elizabeth Warren proposes a whopping $50,000 per student college loan forgiveness.

Good news for the underdwellers in our apocalyptic capitalist reality; the socialist revolution will be televised! The new streaming platform Means TV aims to launch soon, providing anti-capitalist propaganda to true believers in the trenches, looking to inspire hope as they toil in this free-market hellscape. Should we point out the irony that these worker party broadcasts will sit behind a subscription paywall?
Entertainment media continue to wage war on President Donald Trump and conservatives, with major networks, cable TV, and streaming services hurling insults and ignorant opinions at every opportunity.

It’s no surprise that a young Sheldon would go through great lengths to prove he was right, or that an adult Sheldon would think fondly of the memory. However, the February 21 episode of Young Sheldon, “A Loaf of Bread and a Grand Old Flag," took it to the next level with Sheldon supporting communism.
