You may believe Hollywood touts a strong pro-choice bias. And according to a recent poll, most Americans would agree with you.
Rewind to January 2017 – a politically fraught month, with the Women’s March and March for Life scheduled back-to-back, not to mention President Trump’s Inauguration. Twenty million viewers were watching Meryl Streep vent about politics and call Hollywood and the press “the most vilified segments in American society right now.” She also lauded Hollywood’s impressive cultural diversity.
The 89th Academy Awards, aka The Oscars, was broadcast by ABC live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night, hosted by late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. As with other award shows of late, politics reared its ugly liberal head and showed us exactly why Hollywood is often referred to derisively as "La La Land."
Actress Meryl Streep isn’t just denouncing the dire state of America at Hollywood awards shows. She’s now taking this awards speech to far-left events, accepting an “Ally Award” from the LGBT political-correctness police at the so-called Human Rights Campaign. Since so many Americans will never get to stand at an awards show podium and speak their mind about what’s wrong with the world, we thought we’d present an awards-show speech responding to Meryl Streep and what she represents:
When it comes to Hollywood, viewers on both sides of the aisle agree: political speeches aren’t that convincing. Only 25 percent of participants have ever changed their opinions based on information presented in a political awards show speech.
Hollywood bias extends beyond tweets and activism—it’s in the money too. Using data from the Center for Responsive Politics, MRC Culture found that six Oscar nominees together donated more than $240,000 to Democratic and liberal causes.
Unfortunately, we may have to endure yet another Trump tirade from Meryl Streep. On Jan. 24, 2017 the Huffington Post reported that Meryl Streep was nominated for her 20th Academy Award. “Queen Meryl” as the Huffington Post referred to her, made headlines recently after going on a six minute rant at the Golden Globes about how terrible she thinks Donald Trump is.
During the Golden Globes on NBC, a slew of award winners used their acceptance speeches as opportunities to publicize their views while host Jimmy Fallon from The Tonight Show mainly kept the politics to a minimum. But, none of the pieces of drivel from attendees could compare to the incredibly pompous and elitist six-minute rant emanating actress Meryl Streep.
In a phone interview this past Monday on MSNBC’s Hardball, legendary actress, singer, and huge liberal Barbara Streisand decided to use her appearance to gush about fellow actress Meryl Streep’s criticism of President-elect Donald Trump at Sunday’s Golden Globes awards ceremony (plus lob a few insults at Trump herself).
During Monday's edition of CBS's Late Show program, host Stephen Colbert chimed in on actress Meryl Streep's six-minute speech slamming President-elect Donald Trump at the Golden Globe Awards the night before, and he gleefully let his liberal perspective come shining through.
After Meryl Streep’s scathing speech condemning President-elect Donald Trump Sunday night, liberals came out in full force to defend the actress and left-wing activist’s “brave” move preaching to the choir. On ABC’s The View Monday morning, actress and host Whoopi Goldberg unsurprisingly came to Streep’s defense as well. While doing so, Goldberg made some absurd claims about which type of politics run Hollywood.
Toure gave a spirited defense of Meryl Streep and the Hollywood left on Monday's MSNBC Live, after the actress gave an anti-Donald Trump speech at Sunday's Golden Globes. The 9/11 truther contended that movie stars are "just everyday Americans who did very well." He added that "they make up a significant and valuable portion of America....they are real Americans just as well." Toure also repeatedly rebuked Trump for his counter-attack against Streep: "He should not be attacking specific Americans and dissing them as if this is some playground."
All three networks on Monday eagerly hyped liberal celebrities trashing Donald Trump at Sunday night’s Golden Globes awards. ABC’s Good Morning America actually led the show with Meryl Streep bashing the President-elect. The Today show waited until five minutes into the program. The hosts at CBS This Morning restrained themselves until 7:06am ET.
