Who would’ve thought that Hollywood is full of hypocritical airheads who are more fond of lip service than meaningful activism? Well by now, probably everybody. And if you were still under the impression that these are the saints of our time and don’t want that bubble to burst, don’t watch last night's Emmy Awards show and stay away from The Washington Post.
According to a recent Southern California University study, the amount of women speaking roles on television has actually declined. What?! In today’s progressive society? This is quite shameful, America. And as you well know, Hollywood lefties are going to turn around and blame you for it instead of pointing fingers at the industry giving them a platform.
Besides gay rights, Shameless, Showtime’s hit liberal show, has yet another social justice cause to champion. This time it's equal pay.
If there was any doubting the political sympathies of Entertainment Weekly, the front cover of the Fall TV Preview hails the revival of the CBS hit comedy Murphy Brown, starrring Candace Bergen. It was revealing to compare how enthusiastically EW greeted the return of Murphy Brown, to how the magazine greeted the return of the comedy Last Man Standing, starring right-of-center actor Tim Allen -- with second-degree questioning of Allen's political beliefs.
Appearing as a guest on Monday's Morning Joe, MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt started railing against Republican candidates running in this year's Senate and congressional elections, applying the words "kook," "nut," "crook" and "weirdo" to several different candidates.
Today in the 21st century, we have a serious problem with white male sexists and racists who are dictating what women and minorities can wear on and off their playing fields. They're putting evolution on hold with their micro-aggressions of sexism and racism, complains Carron J. Phillips, the sports, race and social issues columnist for The New York Daily News.
Oh, the irony. While the media are arguing that one illegal immigrant shouldn’t represent all, they are, at the same time, arguing that one man represents “toxic masculinity.”
The New York Times broke the news that Asia Argento, an Italian actress prominent in the #MeToo movement against sexual harassment in Hollywood, has herself been accused by a man who says she sexually assaulted him five years ago, when he was 17. Now, reporter Elisabetta Povoledo has written a sympathetic article about Argento for Wednesday’s edition: “Italy, Already Wary of Unorthodox Star And #MeToo, Pounces on Actor’s Claim.” The story’s text box lamented the possibility that #MeToo may apply to victimized men as well as women: “‘This will be used as an excuse to blame all women,’ one said.”
If PC can make 100-year-old statues disappear, it certainly can erase rock n’ roll songs. This summer’s deluxe re-issue of rock band Guns N’ Roses’ 1987 album, Appetite for Destruction, was packaged without an original song due to homophobic and racist content.
On Friday morning, our friend and Daily Caller editor Amber Athey uncovered the latest batch of embarrassing, old tweets from newly-hired New York Times editorial board member and resident racist Sarah Jeong in which she targeted men and police. Athey explained that she did “[a] search for ‘cops’ and ‘police’ on Jeong’s Twitter reveals an extensive history of anti-cop sentiment and a lack of sympathy for police who are injured on the job” and she found quite the batch of results.
Psst. Want to hear a joke? How about the one where Hillary Clinton -- you know, the woman who wasn’t going to “Stand By Her Man” until she did and enabled her husband’s sexual abuse and philandering -- claimed to be a women’s rights advocate? Hilarious, isn’t it? While a joke for sensible people, Hillary has been quite insistent that she stands on the shoulders of the giants of the women’s movement.
You know the Emmys. You know the Oscars. You always hear about -- but honestly, never pay attention to -- the Golden Globes. But have you heard about the new lefty-run awards show, “The Golden Probes?” If your initial thought was, “Hmm, that sounds kind of dirty,” you’re right. Innuendos aside, the premise of the event is pretty foul.
