Critics call New Year’s Eve “amateur night,” and with good reason. The holiday coaxes even casual drinkers to greet Baby New Year with a slurry, “huzzah!” The dawn of a new year also inspires amateur psychics to look ahead to the next 12 months. And HIT is no different.In that spirit, let’s predict what we’ll see in the entertainment world in 2020 – and how the presidential campaign will impact Hollywood, Inc.
New York Times reporter Liam Stack joined the mob against Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling for transgender wrong-think on Thursday. The headline deck was indeed stacked against Rowling: "J.K. Rowling Criticized After Tweeting Support for Anti-Transgender Researcher -- Ms. Rowling expressed support for a researcher whose views on transgender people were condemned by a court on Wednesday as ‘incompatible with human dignity.’" Stack’s reporting is notoriously snarky and slanted, even in the context of the Times, and his take on Rowling’s bow to basic biology aligned with her knee-jerk critics on Twitter. He put Rowling on defensive in the lead[.]
Turns out Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling might not be as progressive as she thought. Recently, the fantasy writer angered radical LGBTQ folks on social media for tweeting a defense of a person fired for believing that there are only two genders. The author has since been called a “transphobe,” or more specifically a “TERF” (trans exclusive radical feminist.)
Not surprisingly, liberal entertainers says Donald Trump is not welcome … to attend a play. Coming from a group that preaches inclusion, that doesn’t seem very inclusive. During the Tony Award red carpet, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child stage actress Noma Dumezweni was asked if Trump should watch the play. She responded with, “No.” She started to walk away before turning around, “Anyone else, yes.”
Halloween is when kids dress up in costume and parents share cute pictures of their kids on social media. Leave it to bitter liberal Hollywood to ruin one child’s picture. Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a photo of his daughter, Chloe, with the caption, “I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight and give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism.” Socialist Hollywood was quick to jump on this statement, retweeting the child’s picture and the caption with their own views. Amber Tamblyn, the actress who declared war on conservatives, called the picture and the caption “whiteness,” saying that “it’s beyond commentary on socialism. It’s a viewpoint only extreme privilege can afford.”
Liberal celebrities love to hide behind what makes them look good. Especially if it’s fake news.
As of July 31, the author of the Harry Potter series J.K. Rowling is still accusing Trump of ignoring a disabled child and calling the POTUS “stunning and horrible.”
In a since-deleted tweet, an aide to Washington State Democratic Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal claimed that President Donald Trump had ignored a "child in (a) wheelchair" who reached up "twice to shake the president's hand" after a Friday speech. It turns out that the aide, Ansel Herz, clearly engaged in the kind of "selective editing" critics claim conservative undercover journalists commit (but almost never do).
Hundreds of British actors and celebrities are clamoring for Great Britain to remain part of the European Union when the nation votes this week. That’s in direct opposition to the view of many conservatives on both sides of the pond. Either result could have major economic consequences. UK citizens will vote June 23 on the contentious “Brexit” referendum. Putting their high-profiles to use, 282 people involved in Britain’s creative industries signed a letter in May arguing many of their “projects” would not have been possible without “vital EU funding” or “collaborating across borders,” according to a website urging people vote “REMAIN.”
Benefiting from a hint from an article titled "Is Harry Potter Making You Poorer?", written by my colleague Dr. John Goodman, president of the Dallas-based National Center for Policy Analysis, I've come up with an explanation and a way to end income inequality in America, possibly around the world. Joanne Rowling was a welfare mother in Edinburgh, Scotland. All that has changed. As the writer of the "Harry Potter" novels, having a net worth of $1 billion, she is the world's wealthiest author. More importantly, she's one of those dastardly 1-percenters condemned by the Occupy Wall Streeters and other leftists.
"It’s a children’s show, folks. To think we would be putting sexual innuendo in a children’s show is kind of outlandish." -- spokesman for Itsy Bitsy Entertainment Co., which licenses Teletubby characters in the United States.
Yeah, outlandish. I mean, how could anyone imagine there could be undisclosed gay characters in pop-culture materials for children? That Jerry Falwell, what a Christian conservative crank! We all remember how the MSM rightly unloaded on him when he suggested that the Teletubby Tinky Winky could be a hidden homosexual, because "he is purple, the gay pride color, and his antenna is shaped like a triangle, the gay pride symbol." Not to mention that he carried a purse. What ridiculous speculation!
