Samuel L. Jackson
In the past few weeks we’ve seen the media get excited for Beto O’Rourke while also blaming Donald Trump for the actions of a crazed shooter. Vanity Fair sent Joe Hagan to pen a cover story on Beto that left the writer giddy about a “gleam in his eye” as the “too innocent to be a politician” began his presidential campaign. Conversely, journalists raged at Donald Trump’s reaction to the shooting in New Zealand, a tragedy they all but blamed Trump for. CNN host John Berman indicted Trump for using the same “language” of the killer. The following are just a few of the worst moments of media outrage from the last month.
Samuel L. Jackson just loves using his Hollywood-manufactured tough guy image to throw his weight around the political scene. This time the “bad motherf***ker” handed down his judgement of all the people who haven’t got on the #resistance train, insisting that if people aren’t bashing Donald Trump then they’re “complicit” and that’s “not fucking okay.”
It was the year of the F-bomb -- every single one of them aimed at the president of the United States. It’s been 12 months since the 2016 election and already at least 63 of the angriest Hollywood elites -- A-listers, has-beens, teen stars, rappers, and wannabes alike -- have delivered a collective middle finger to the president.
Rush Limbaugh has stated several times that the assassination of John F. Kennedy ushered in the era of modern liberalism. Liberals back then just couldn't handle the fact that the assassin was Lee Harvey Oswald, a communist who lived for awhile in the Soviet Union. So they attempted to blame America and the "rightwing" for Kennedy's assassination.
In the current update of that attitude, liberals hate to see radical Muslims blamed for acts of terrorism. The prefer and wish for such acts to have been committed by somebody they can associate with conservatives. The latest example of this is Samuel L. Jackson who flat out expresses his disappointment in The Hollywood Reporter that the culprit in the San Bernardino shootings wasn't "some crazy white dude" rather than who it really was, a radical Muslim couple.
Former 2 Live Crew rapper turned music promoter and VH1 star Luther Campbell isn't pleased with Spike Lee's comments about filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and the new movie "Django Unchained."
Writing at his Miami NewTimes blog Tuesday, Campbell called Lee "Hollywood's resident house negro."
As NewsBusters readers know, actors Jamie Foxx and Samuel L. Jackson have made some rather inflammatory comments of late.
On Monday, conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh said of the two stars currently featured in Quentin Tarantino's controversial film "Django Unchained," "[They] try to make the case that there's still slavery in this country" (video follows with transcript):
One reason, I'm guessing, for still subscribing to The Boston Globe is to laugh at "self-loathing" black conservatives...even in Quentin Tarantino movie reviews. Globe film critic Wesley Morris is at is again. On NPR in May 2011, Morris hailed "The Fast and The Furious" movies as very "progressive" and "equal-opportunity shallow." When challenged on it, Morris shot darts instead at "The Blind Side."
In his Christmas Day review of the new movie "Django Unchained," Morris found "a hard mix of meticulous cartoonishness and unexpected power," especially in the "house Negro" Samuel L. Jackson, who apparently channels Clarence Thomas, Alan Keyes, Herman Cain, and Michael Steele:
Samuel L. Jackson dropped an F-bomb on NBC's Saturday Night Live last evening.
As the recurring sketch "What's Up With That" came to a conclusion, Jackson also said "bulls--t" (video follows with commentary, vulgarity warning):
If you’re not one of the people in “Everyone” who loves Michelle Obama, you must not be following the collapse of Newsweek. In one of the magazine’s last print editions, Allison Samuels is asking “What's next for our incredibly popular first lady? Samuel L. Jackson and other super-fans weigh in.”
Jackson is in love: “Michelle is Superwoman. What can’t she do?...That’s why people love her. She can be on the Supreme Court and anywhere else she wants. She can be the president. She’s history and she’ll stay history because she is so amazingly smart and together.” Samuels continued in this syrupy vein:
A war broke out on the set of HBO’s Real Time Friday when MSNBC’s sole conservative commentator S.E. Cupp had the nerve to say that Barack Obama’s foreign policy was no different than former President George W. Bush’s.
In the midst of the shouting, actor Samuel L. Jackson said to Cupp, “You don’t want to f—k with Dick Cheney" (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Lots of Hollywood's "finest" have come out in support of the current White House resident, but possibly none as strongly as Samuel L. Jackson.
According to the New York Post, the actor will be featured in a new pro-Obama ad beseeching voters with a one of his favorite vulgarities (severe vulgarity warning):
