Hollywood, a town known for many things, not among them being intellectual diversity. A communications arm of the Democratic Party for decades, it is nearly impossible to turn on the television or go to a cinema without being bombarded by leftist talking points. However, Trevor Noah seemed to suggest otherwise on Thursday’s The Daily Show with guest John Lithgow.
One actress is trying to give Gloria Steinem a run for her money in pro-abortion extremism. Jameela Jamil (The Good Place), who had an abortion when she was younger, is so exercised about abortion that she’s been raging at pro-lifers on Twitter.
For the first time in Star Wars’ 40 year saga, director J.J. Abrams and Disney can finally claim that the LGBTQ representation is strong with this one. Variety reported on Tuesday that the final movie in the franchise will not be skipping out on the overtly progressive agenda they have been talking about installing into the series since 2015’s The Force Awakens. Abrams told the outlet that LGBTQ will finally be able to say they were “represented” in a Star Wars movie.
World leader and queen of the mean girls, Justin Trudeau has got lefty tongues wagging over video of his alleged gossip about President Donald J. Trump during this week’s NATO summit. And even though Trudeau is an effete, blackface-wearing hypocrite, celebrity twitter heralded his behind-the-back antics as some heroic Trump takedown. Of course this is the pettiest news of the year, but then again, this is both Canada and Hollywood we’re talking about.
It seems that legendary Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams has taken his campy 80s playboy/swinger image and updated it for modern audiences. The man most famous for his role as Lando Calrissian disclosed to Esquire that he’s got a new sexual orientation: gender-fluid.
Another multimillionaire lefty celebrity is pining for the death of capitalism and for some good old wealth redistribution. Avengers superstar Mark Ruffalo demanded an “economic revolution” on Twitter this past Sunday, claiming that “capitalism is killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”
Lefties are bad at a lot of things (math comes to mind), but one thing they are great at is destroying pop culture that doesn’t reflect their current preoccupations. So movies that aren’t “woke” -- basically any movie ever made that is realistic and decently entertaining -- must be amended or cancelled.
The keyboard warriors have returned for Ricky Gervais’ soul this week on account of him being a politically incorrect mischief maker. The British comedian and creator of The Office is still reaping the woke hatred from criticizing trans activist Jessica Yaniv on Twitter, with Indiewire’s Libby Hill outraged over the fact that he still gets to host the upcoming Golden Globes.
Could it be that the fix is in for Hollywood’s influence during this upcoming election cycle? Actor Robert Redford sure seems desperate, putting his TDS into an op-ed at NBC “Think.” The actor railed against Trump’s administration, calling it a “monarchy in disguise” and pulling out enough platitudes on the death of democracy to make the Washington Post cringe.
Robert De Niro doesn’t like President Trump, in case you couldn't tell. The actor, whom the media brings out from time to time with the sole purpose of bashing the President, did just that on The Late Show, Monday. De Niro was so traumatized by Trump that he claimed the country was living “in an abusive household.”
On November 19, a House subcommittee invited Bernie Sanders-backing actor Mark Ruffalo to testify on "PFAS" chemicals. Ruffalo doesn't have a college degree in chemistry. He doesn't have a college degree in anything. But he's starring in a new movie about a lawyer suing a chemical company. That's apparently scientific expertise.
Chuck Lorre is well known for his penchant for placing vanity cards at the ends of his shows, vanity cards which are either complete nonsense or are blatantly anti-conservative.
