Ahh, those Christmas traditions. Gathering with family, expressing love and respect, cherishing those near to us and remembering those departed, without whom we and our progeny would not exist, and, most important, celebrating the birth of Christ…
What started as a harmless place for teenage girls to learn how to straighten hair, apply makeup and style a dress has transformed into a parent’s nightmare. Teen girls’ magazines are loading their pages with left-wing propaganda and questionable sex advice.
After the controversy that was stirred up by the media when Trump allegedly referred to countries like Haiti as “shitholes,” it would not be the brightest move to reference just how awful Haiti is.
But someone in the liberal media did just that. Obama’s former deputy campaign manager, Karine Jean Pierre, wrote in her op-ed for Teen Vogue, “My parents fled a dictatorship. And now, they feel as if they’re living it all over again.”
In the wake of the sexual harassment scandals of the week, it’s easy to make sweeping statements. But should the media be allowed a free pass to say what they want?
Award shows have now become recruiting grounds for liberals. At the Glamour Women of the Year Awards, on November 13, people like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California) and Samantha Bee got to tell the “hundreds of high school girls” in the audience just how they felt about Trump and his administration. Waters tried to tell the audience to “join progressive organizations” and ended her awards acceptance speech with an attempt to start an “Impeach him” chant.
If you wonder why Hollywood stayed so quiet so long about casting couch abuse behind closed doors, just look at how the entertainment industry enabled perverted sexual exploitation of women in front of the camera. Fashion magazine moguls at Conde Nast have now reportedly blacklisted soft-porn celebrity photographer Terry Richardson from working on shoots for Vogue, GQ and Glamour.
When Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, some Americans thought the Electoral College rigged the presidency for Trump, and that hatred persists to this day. Once Trump became President, Syria’s latest chemical weapons attacked transpired and though most Americans supported that decision to bomb Syria, the radical left did not. In Hollywood, the level of post-election bitterness has only grown. Therefore, the entertainment elite has purposefully created content insulting millions of thanks to their severe cases of Trump Derangement Syndrome.
Once a woman-hating blowhard, always a woman-hating blowhard. Keith Olbermann, the "new" face of the Democratic resistance on Conde Nast's digital video platform, is the same old foul-mouthed beast he was on cable TV. Over the weekend, the former MSNBC frother went berserk over Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos's anodyne call for prayers "for all those in the path of #HurricaneHarvey" and her promise to "assist impacted schools."
You know The Washington Post is a liberal newspaper when the big splashy figure on the front of Friday’s Style section is…Keith Olbermann. The man whose career has now “evolved” into ranting in obscurity for a fashion magazine? Yes.
Political reporter Ben Terris is clearly not thrilled with this assignment. He will clearly wound Keith’s massive ego by proclaiming late in the piece “Some of Olbermann’s commentaries are infused with a frenetic energy akin to the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.”
Another sign that that the eco-movement is a victim of the economy: Condé Nast, the publisher of Vanity Fair has decided to kill its annual green issue, according to an article by Rachel Shields in the April 5 The Independent (UK).
"Condé Nast, publisher of Vanity Fair, argues that the environment has become so integral to the news agenda that there is no longer a need for a dedicated issue," Shields wrote.
"Vanity Fair remains committed to covering the environment, and we'll spread our coverage throughout the year, instead of relegating the bulk of it to a specific issue," a spokeswoman said to The Independent.
However, as Shields pointed out, this is a sign that the environment is an issue that is losing importance in the wake of the economic downturn - begging the question - how important was it really to begin with?
