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.”
In the alternate universe where a not-really-controversial call between two world leaders generates impeachment hysteria for a major political party, lefties are beside themselves in excitement over a congressional whistleblower hearing where “uncorroborated” “hearsay” against Donald Trump somehow amounts to the president’s political doom.
Todd Phillips, director of the upcoming Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix, is pushing back against critics and protestors who claim that his R-rated comic book adaptation may inspire violence. Both he and Warner Brothers Studios insist that neither the fictional character, “nor the film, is an endorsement of real-world violence of any kind,” with the director calling out the critics as being part of the “far left” outrage culture.
If you’re a dad who’s concerned that his son might orbit too close to the girls’ toy aisle, “Barbie” creators, Mattel have a solution that might make your shame less acute. Or break your heart. The world-famous toy company have announced a line of gender-neutral dolls.
It’s no secret that Hollywood relishes including abortion in its television programs or movies. Not only is it a great way to promote a staple left agenda item, it’s a satisfying dig at those pro-lifers. Though what might not be so apparent is that this isn’t just a lefty producer’s personal politics bleeding through onto the script but actual Planned Parenthood propaganda encouraged via the abortion mill’s own consultants planted in the industry.
The New York Times joined the rest of the mainstream press in hiding behind 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg’s angry, unscientific ranting before the United Nations to push a message of environmental apocalypse. Tuesday’s front-page story by “international climate reporter” Somini Sengupta and Lisa Friedman left out the full bitter flavor of Thunberg’s rant. The Times pronounced the so-called climate crisis as an undeniable scientific fact starting with the headline: “World Dawdles On Climate Aid As Clock Ticks.”
It’s Impeachment Day! Finally! And don’t let anyone dissuade you, this time it’s going to stick. The liberals in Hollywood are so excited, so ecstatic over the news that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is launching an “Impeachment inquiry” over rumors of Donald Trump’s inappropriate phone call with the leader of Ukraine, that they are making sweeping claims that the president’s goose is cooked.
It’s climate change hysteria week and all the best in melodramatic, manipulative, and grotesque activism has been put on display for Mother Earth. Most notably,16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg’s dramatic meltdown at the U.N. went over about as smoothly as Harrison Ford landing a Cessna.
