Team USA's 13-0 women's World Cup soccer thrashing of Thailand Tuesday got a heavy infusion of politics from the media. U.S. midfielder Megan Rapinoe refused to honor America during the pre-game national anthem, as an insult to President Donald Trump, and USA Today referred to the president as a "misogynist" after he declined to discuss the team's quest for equal pay.
Pose’s transgender writer, director, and producer Janet Mock has a few choice words for those who aren’t super-careful with pronouns. Deified in 2014 for her memoir, the Hollywood media has long looked to Mock for her expertise on trans issues. In an interview with The Root yesterday, Janet Mock once again imparted her wisdom, relating mistaken pronouns to racism against black people.
Tuesday, June 11 marked the beginning of another season of Pose on FX and the flood of LGBTQ+ activism that comes with it. By now, the constants cries about homophobia and racism should come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with this show based in New York in the late '80s and early '90s.
For a group of people who preach free love and free hugs, liberals really need to loosen up. On Saturday, Kylie Jenner posted a video on her Instagram of a “Handmaid’s Tale” themed birthday party she hosted for her friend. The video has since been deleted, but not before the Twitter social justice mob had already unleashed its wrath.
Pop star Kesha is out with a new song blasting the intersectional left’s number one, most-hated target – or, as Rolling Stone excitedly reported, “Kesha Rids the World of ‘Rich, White, Straight Men’ on New Track.” The artist formerly known as Ke$ha posted the song literally titled ‘Rich, White, Straight, Men’ on YouTube on Sunday, apparently without the approval of her record label. The video accompanying the song is just a repeated loop of Kesha giving the camera the middle finger, which makes it the most honest depiction of the entertainment industry’s attitude toward middle America I’ve ever seen.
As if there weren’t enough liberals running for president, CNN senior editor Amanda Katz pulled another name out of the hat. Yesterday evening, Katz tweeted “Realistically, Bette Midler could never win the primary, but if she went head to head with Trump in the general he wouldn’t stand a chance.” At least she’s being realistic.
If there’s one thing to admire about Hillary Clinton, it’s her persistence. She persistently fails. She and Bill bombed their recent speaking tour. She failed both times she ran for president (when both times the DNC poised her to win) and she failed as Secretary of State. Now she wants to fail as a Hollywood producer. According to Bloomberg, Hillary Clinton and her media groomed daughter Chelsea plan to start a film and TV production company. Apparently, CNN (Clinton News Network) isn’t enough.
Disney CEO Bob Iger has weighed in on Georgia’s “Heartbeat Bill,” threatening to pull the company’s film productions from the state if Governor Kemp’s Bill goes into law. It just goes to show that no matter how many theme parks Disney creates or beloved childhood franchises it churns out, its true calling is maximizing stock price, innocent babies be damned. Oh, the irony!
The right to keep and bear arms is one of the many things that makes America a truly great place to live. But in a Wednesday Tweet responding to an NRATV video promoting a rape survivor who now carries a firearm, CNN host Chris Cuomo appeared to dismiss her empowerment with a flippant “Only in America” chide.
Acting chops aside, Anne Hathaway has always looked like the type of person whose superpowers include the ability to give one heck of a condescending lecture. As it turns out, the white woman is chiding other “white women” for fighting for the lives of unborn children of any color. On social media, the Ocean's 8 actress slammed the “complicity of white women” in producing the recent pro-life Alabama legislation signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.
Hollywood’s hot new trend is to boycott the entire state of Georgia because Governor Brian Kemp signed a bill making it harder to kill unborn babies. Following her threatened boycott in March, one-time actress and full-time shrew Alyssa Milano had already convinced David Simon, creator of The Wire, to join the fad. Now there are few other big celebs getting in on the action.
French rapper Nick Conrad’s new song is the textbook definition of hatred and discrimination against a country and its people. The most outrageous thing about it is not in the lyrics, which include disgusting lines about “burning” and “fucking” France, but the fact that such hateful and explicit trash has been deemed worthy of staying on Facebook and Instagram while internet personalities like Laura Loomer and Paul Joseph Watson have been removed for “far less violent content.”
