One would have presumed that woke, anti-Trump NBA coach Steve Kerr would be making a stand against all things authoritarian. After all, he’s one of the bigger virtue-signallers in the sports world. Yet when faced with the actual fascism of China policing the speech of his American colleagues, the Golden State Warriors coach has nothing at all to say. Maybe it’s just a lefty’s residual soft spot for communists, or maybe some big money is at stake.
It seems traditional American, pro-democratic values may be less important to the NBA than its Chinese revenue. Distancing itself from Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey over his support for Hong Kong in its battle against the authoritarian Chinese state was apparently the league’s latest smart money move.
Filmmaker Michael Moore discovered some lefty political inspiration over the weekend after a viewing of new DC comic book film Joker. The Fahrenheit 11/9 director likened the flick to a sort of anti-Trump manifesto, where the “dispossesed decide to fight back” against evil societal forces which mirror our country’s own “Joker Jr.” president, and gun violence.
Singer and former Disney Channel star Demi Lovato has been the subject of social media backlash lately because her personal and “spiritual” trip to Israel in recent days is not PC enough for woketivists. People gave the pop star so much garbage over photos of her baptism in the Jordan River that she was compelled to apologize.
The Legend family sure loves their war of words with President Donald Trump. Sure, musician John Legend and his model wife Christine Teigen will tell you otherwise and say that the president is the instigator, but here they are, adding more fuel to a petty dumpster fire that we all thought ended weeks ago.
The Anti-Defamation League is a joke. Once a respected civil rights organization dedicated to fighting extremism and hate against Jews, the ADL lies in bed with violent antifa extremists and perpetuates hate against political opponents. The “progressive” group is now a brazenly partisan character assassination outfit headed by Jonathan Greenblatt, a Clinton/Obama operative and former George Soros-funded operative, whose contempt for President Donald Trump trumps all.
The only surprising thing about Disney putting an alien gay couple in a Star Wars series is that it took this long. Now LGBTQers can finally dry their eyes because the galaxy far far away is incorporating otherworldly sexualities into the mix.
With a Hollywood career exclusively marked by directing raunchy comedies, it is a bit strange to consider that director Todd Phillips is about to make his biggest mark with a bloody, rated-R crime drama. It’s quite the genre change, one that Phillips attributes to being tired of “woke culture.”
On Thursday, The Washington Post rushed to publish the infuriating story of a young African American girl savagely bullied by white boys at a Northern Virginia private Christian school. Although more details emerged on Monday that the account was made up by the child, many in the media had spent days leaping to bash the Christian school, and by extension, Second Lady Karen Pence, who teaches there, and who has already faced backlash over the institution’s “anti-gay” support for traditional marriage.
Mark Hamill, the actor behind legendary childhood sci-fi hero Luke Skywalker, adopted the role of playground bully on Twitter this weekend, making fun of Ivanka Trump, her husband, and their child for the world to see. The man famous for his depiction of resistance to anger and hatred, couldn’t even look at an innocent photo without turning to the dark side. Shame on him.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been doing a lot of IMPORTANT work in past week. You know, postponing a bipartisan gun control compromise, risking the credibility of her entire party over a shaky at best impeachment initiative, and hanging with super flamboyant queer TV star Jonathan Van Ness while the Republic is in turmoil.
The brazenly liberal Anti-Defamation League, which works with Big Tech companies to remove “hate” from social media, has declared that images that are against the left wing Antifa mobs are now “hate symbols.” The ADL’s “Hate on Display(tm) Hate Symbols Database,” states that “white supremacists” use imagery “directed against antifa (short for anti-fascist),” which the ADL innocuously describes as a “the loosely-organized left-wing and anarchist anti-racist movement.”
