From Johnny Carson to Stephen Colbert by Dennis Prager

From Johnny Carson to Stephen Colbert by Dennis Prager, May 9, 2017

Excerpts:

Whatever the Left dominates, it ruins.

….But more than anything, it [Stephen Colbert’s vulgar commentary on Trump on his late night TV show] exemplified a trend in American life that one could identify without any exaggeration as the unraveling of civil society.

To anyone, liberal or conservative, who grew up watching Johnny Carson on late night TV, the descent from Carson to Colbert is as breathtaking as it is heartbreaking.

‘The Bachelor’ Star Chris Soules Is Not the Nice Guy ABC Sold Us by Brandy Zadronzy

‘The Bachelor’ Star Chris Soules Is Not the Nice Guy ABC Sold Us by Brandy Zadronzy

Shades of actor Chris O’Dowd, who I would have believed to be a nice guy in real life based on his performance in the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie, but who turned out to be condescending, kind of gross, and a little sexist in real life or via some of the movie roles he went on to accept (read more about that here).

It is always such a bummer to me when I see someone on TV or in a movie – whether it’s a reality program, or a person who is playing a character – who seems like they’d be a genuinely nice person in real life, but they turn out to be rude, arrogant, deviant, or obnoxious in real life.

‘The Bachelor’ Star Chris Soules Is Not the Nice Guy ABC Sold Us

Billed as the charming small town fella—and antidote to the gross Juan Pablo—Soules, who stands accused of leaving the scene of an accident that left a man dead, is anything but.

Celebrities Continue With Their Obnoxious Public Political Activism and TDS – Trump Derangement Syndrome: Spring 2017 Edition

Celebrities Continue With Their Obnoxious Public Political Activism and Trump Derangement Syndrome: Spring 2017 Edition

Presenting a list of links from the March to May 2017 time frame of celebrities saying or doing politically obnoxious things, mostly about Trump, but also regarding other subjects. (Well at least links from April and May; I didn’t spot any news items from March in my collection of bookmarks.)

The month of May is not yet over. If any more liberal celebrities spout off with any more obnoxious comments, I will amend this post under the section of May to add the new links.

Avengers Director Joss Whedon: Trump to Start Killing Gay People? – April 2017

The director of The Avengers is one of Hollywood’s most vocal critics of the Trump administration. He did all he could to stop the real estate mogul from becoming president.

He directed the infamous “Save the Day” voter PSAs from 2016. Whedon leaned on his celebrity rolodex to caution voters against Trump. The star-studded ad featured Robert Downey, Jr., Don Cheadle, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo and other A-list actors.

It didn’t work, despite Whedon spending $1 million of his own cash to bankroll the videos.

Now, he uses Twitter to warn the masses about potential abuses of presidential power … and more. It hasn’t always gone smoothly.

A few weeks ago he admitted the fight against Team Trump had left him “broken.” Since then, he’s resumed his political messaging. Thursday’s Tweet, though, could be his most aggressive statement yet.

He linked to a story about gay people reportedly being killed simply for their sexual preference.

Actor Chris O’Dowd is a Great Big Jerk – Not Adorable, Not Nice, and No, Not Sexy

Actor Chris O’Dowd is a Great Big Jerk

I will say from the start this is going to be one very long post, though there is a TLDR (Too Long Didn’t Read) intro below.

I’ve never had a talent for being concise. This is something you may want to bookmark and read the rest later.

In a 2012 interview with GQ, which you can read here, actor Chris O’Dowd says:

“I don’t know, maybe there is something in female writing that I’m attracted to.”

Well, then, he should really love my blog posts about him.

(As of April 2017, I edited my last post about O’Dowd and his terrible movie role choices to toss in a few other things about the guy which annoy me – most of the new content is towards the bottom of that post. Don’t forget the other post I did where I dissected his low-key variety of sexism.)

The movie ‘Bridesmaids’ was first shown in movie theaters in the year 2011, but I did  not see it until I caught it for the first time on cable TV in spring or summer of 2015.

Sad Face Emoji In this movie, actor Chris O’Dowd played a nice guy named “Nathan Rhodes” who worked as a cop (a state trooper, specifically), and Kristen Wiig, who ended up being his love interest, played down-on-her-luck “Annie Walker.”

Actor Jon Hamm played the sexist creep dirt bag “Ted,” who was using Annie for sex.

This movie was more than just a movie for me when I saw it on TV in 2015. I saw this movie at a very low point in my life, and it helped to cheer me up – for a time, at least.


TLDR

Too Long, Didn’t Read summary:

I saw the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie on cable TV after undergoing (and still undergoing) some very upsetting events in my life, including the death of my mother, who was a very loving person and who was also a Republican and a devout Christian.

I found the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie encouraging at a low point in my life.

I wanted to learn more about the movie, and the people who made it and acted in it, so I did research about it on the internet, including interviews with actor Chris O’Dowd, who played the nice guy in the film (the role of the cop, Rhodes).

From what I saw, in real life, O’Dowd insults and ridicules Republicans and people of faith and concepts they believe in (such as prayer) on his Twitter account and in some interviews he’s given.

O’Dowd is into kind of vulgar or slightly sexist humor in real life, as well, which is a turn off to me – I prefer men who behave like gentlemen and who treat women with respect.

I was stunned and saddened to discover that the guy who played such a friendly, pleasant guy in the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie is, in real life, rather rude and condescending towards other people he doesn’t even know – specifically, he’s rude and insulting towards conservatives, Republicans, or theists.

One result of this is that I can no longer really enjoy watching the movie any more.


MY BACKGROUND

I’ll explain my background here, (and I’m sorry it’s going to be quite long), so you can understand my position better, before I state some of my grievances with O’Dowd much farther below, because my background plays a part in my disappointment with O’Dowd and some of the other people associated with this film.

MY MOM’S HEALTH

My mother died a few years before I saw the ‘Bridesmaids’ movie on television, and my mother’s death was the most painful and heart-breaking thing I’ve ever had to endure.

Liberal Feminist Celebrities: It’s Not Feminist of You to Scold Women For How They Voted

There have been a number of left wing, celebrity feminists who have shamed or scolded American women (in particular, white women) for how they voted in the 2016 American Presidential elections.

I don’t find it very “feminist” for women to shame other women for whom they voted for! To shame women for how they voted, to cluck disapprovingly at them for how they voted, is rather patronizing and it infantilizes grown women.

I personally did not vote for any one in the 2016 elections (because I did not like any of the candidates who ran), but I’m not about to scold or insult women for how they voted, if they did.

The most recent liberal celebrity to shame women for whom they cast a vote is comedian Tina Fey. She seems quite likable apart from this incident, so this is disappointing.

Actress Lena Dunham and singer Madonna have also shamed or condescendingly lectured women in the last few months over their choice of candidate.

It is not the place for one American woman to call out another American woman for how she voted. I find it especially annoying when this criticism comes out of the mouths of these multi-millionaire movie actors or singers and other entertainers who do not have all or even most of the same concerns as middle class, or lower class, or working class Americans…

Here are links about this (stories covering Tina Fey, Madonna, and Lena Dunham):

Excerpts:

These people [liberals, especially liberal celebrities] still don’t get it. You lost because partially because no one likes being what to do, especially when it comes to voting. You called Trump supporters deplorable.

You’re smug. You’re condescending. And that usually doesn’t yield dividends.

You lost. Hillary sucked.

And you’re stuck with Trump for the next four, possibly eight years.

Church of Scientology allegedly covered up abuse claims filed against That ’70s Show TV star Danny Masterson

Of course, the actor is denying the allegations. If true, it’s disappointing. He seemed like a grouchy, yet ultimately likable, decent guy in his TV character on “That 70s Show.”

By the way, of note to this actor Bozo (Masterson) and to his spokespersons, who seem to feel that, “but I was in a relationship with the purported victims, so I could not have sexually attacked them!” absolves him, or is a great defense:

Rape and sexual assault are not just things that happen by a stranger to a woman they do not know, but can also happen by men who are MARRIED TO, DATING, or in a live-in relationship, with women.

Rape is not only a situation of a man in a trench coat jumping out from behind a bush at night to drag a woman victim he does not know into an alley and rape her.

Husbands have been known to rape or abuse their wives. Boyfriends have been known to rape or abuse their girlfriends. Therefore, don’t tell me you are above suspicion because you were dating, or living with, some of these women.

Excerpt:

As Radar previously reported, Tony Ortega of The Underground Bunkerprovided the document after breaking the bombshell news that Masterson has been the target of multiple sexual assault allegations in the early 2000s.

According to an LAPD investigative report filed by one victim in 2016, one incident occurred in December 2001, when she was living with Masterson in LA for six years.

The alleged victim “went to bed and when she woke up [she] was bleeding from her anus,” the report claims.

The Business of Love: How Hollywood Relationships Can Benefit Celebrities

Hollywood and actors are even MORE fake and insincere than I originally thought…

This is certainly depressing and disillusioning.

The Business of Love: How Hollywood Relationships Can Benefit Celebrities |

Excerpts:

Love is love, but in Hollywood, love can also be business.

Hopeless romantics should proceed with caution, because this may not be the worldview-shattering news you wanted to hear.

But, once the rose-colored glasses are gingerly removed and tossed aside in favor of some realism, it becomes clear that if two celebrities benefit from being involved romantically, it actually isn’t as cynical as it may seem.
