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.

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.

Left Wing Celebrity Joss Whedon’s Continual Anti-Right Wing, Anti-Trump Rhetoric

Left Wing Celebrity Joss Whedon’s Continual Anti-Right Wing, Anti-Trump Rhetoric

In the future, should this Whedon guy opine rudely about Trump or politics again, I suppose I may amend this post to add links to whatever new, obnoxious thing he’s said to the bottom of this post.

In the several months since I started this blog and its associated Twitter account, I keep seeing Joss Whedon’s name pop up. The guy is a liberal, he’s a film director, and he keeps trashing right wingers, Republicans, and/or Trump.

He produced or directed the 1990s TV show “Buffy the Vampire” slayer (a show I used to enjoy very much), and he’s either directed or written scripts for several of the Marvel comic book character movies (several of which I’ve also enjoyed).

Based on every map I’ve seen of the 2016 Presidential election, that shows the Popular Vote, Hillary Clinton mainly only won on the west and east coasts (e.g, California, New York), which most maps represent by shading blue. The rest of the country, for the most part, is shaded in Red, showing that most people in those states voted for Trump.

Of course, Trump won the electoral vote, which seems to have many liberals frothing at the mouth in anger. If we’re going by the Popular Vote, which Clinton won, based on my memory of maps showing who won what, Hillary only got the popular vote on the east and west coasts.

I cannot fathom the sour grapes of liberals such as Joss Whedon who want to alienate, exclude, or disregard all the “red areas” of the map, which went to Trump.

It seems to me if you don’t want Trump to win in the next election, you would very much care to know why your side lost the election (and stop it with the “Russians are to blame” nonsense), and try to appeal to folks who voted for Trump.

As has been pointed out time and again in the news, many of those in the “rust belt” of the nation who voted for Trump in 2016 had voted for Obama (Democrat) in the past two previous elections!

There is obviously something very wrong with the Democratic Party that former Democratic voters switched to Republican (and Trump) in the 2016 races, and the Russians had nothing to do with it.

Trump v. Clinton: What the popular vote in each state shows

Looking at the vote totals in each state helps explain it: Clinton’s entire popular vote margin, for example, is less than her overall margin of victory in California (which she won by more than 4 million votes). New York, too, is a populous state that delivered Clinton 1.7 million more votes than Trump but couldn’t help her overcome the Electoral College deficit.

Via Townhall:

Without California, Trump Would’ve Won 1.4 Million More Popular Votes Than Clinton

Picking on or mocking folks who voted for Trump does not come across like a winning strategy to me, and, there again, I am really tired of famous people, especially left wingers, who pontificate publicly about their political views, and especially in such a rude or obnoxious fashion:

Lefty Celeb Joss Whedon Mocks Trump Voters: ‘Uncaring and Obnoxious’

by Scott Whitlock

March 2, 2017

Liberal director Joss Whedon on Monday mocked the 62 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump as “uncaring and obnoxious.” In an interview with the website Good, the filmmaker spat, “We have a mass movement going on. It just needs to prove it’s stronger than 60 million very misinformed voters who are not afraid to be uncaring and obnoxious.”

Black ‘SNL’ Writer (and Actress / Comic) Says She Wants To Punch White Women In The Face

Hmm. So, do leftists want people to support their causes or not? It looks like “not.”

I was initially somewhat sympathetic towards the BLM movement’s complaints when their group first formed; I was willing to hear them out – until they began regularly rioting and advocating to murder police officers (*see “Police Story” links at bottom of this post for examples).

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

In the last two months, celebrities have continued to spew their political views in public – some at rallies, others during awards shows, and they are usually pretty rude, condescending, or obnoxious in the process.

They have yet to learn that most of the nation are not interested in hearing their political views – we just want to watch them act on a screen or sing a song.

Most of these celebrities continue to have a case of Sour Grapes over Donald Trump winning the 2016 presidential election, and I’ve grown tired of their whiny, cry-baby rants. (I myself am neither fully for or against Trump.)

Here is the latest round-up of news stories of celebrities who have been pitching fits about Trump (or Republicans or conservative policies) the last few months (there are so many of these types of stories, it’s hard for me to keep up):

Oscar-nominated foreign filmmakers speak out against ‘climate of fanaticism’ by Oliver Gettell, February 24, 2017

Excerpt (followed by comments by me below):

The six directors behind this year’s Oscar contenders for best foreign-language film have released a joint statement denouncing a “climate of fanaticism and nationalism” in the U.S. and around the world, while calling for unity and freedom of expression.

“The fear generated by dividing us into genders, colors, religions, and sexualities as a means to justify violence destroys the things that we depend on — not only as artists but as humans: the diversity of cultures, the chance to be enriched by something seemingly ‘foreign’ and the belief that human encounters can change us for the better,” the statement says. “These divisive walls prevent people from experiencing something simple but fundamental: from discovering that we are all not so different.”

Signed by Asghar Farhadi (The Salesman), Maren Ade (Toni Erdmann), Martin Zandvliet (Land of Mine), Hannes Holm (A Man Called Ove), and Bentley Dean and Martin Butler (Tanna), the statement asserts, “We want this award to stand as a symbol of the unity between nations and the freedom of the arts.”

The foreign-language Oscar has taken on an increased political dimension this year in response to President Trump’s hard-line stance on immigration and “America first” approach to foreign policy.

(end excerpt)

My comments:

Do you know who divides people into groups, based on gender, sexuality, colors, etc? That would be LIBERALS. Not right wingers, not conservatives, not Republicans, not even Trump.

Yes, left wingers and most Democrats are into something called “identity politics,” where they insist we all note the skin color, religion, sexual preferences, genders, and so on, of everyone.

Celebrities Acting Like Whiny Petty Cry-Babies Over 2017 Trump Inauguration

Celebrities Acting Like Whiny Petty Cry-Babies Over 2017 Trump Inauguration

Left wing celebrity sour grapes knows no bounds. (Reminder: I’m neither a Trump supporter nor a Trump hater.)

Celebrities are saying they will refuse to perform at Trump’s upcoming inauguration.

The last I saw, Trump is shooting back that he doesn’t want any “A-List” celebrities at his inauguration anyway.

Here are links about the whole ordeal:

●  Donald Trump says he doesn’t want A-list stars at his inauguration

Dec 20, 2016

“The Blaze” commentator Tomi Lahren told Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” Tuesday that many liberal Americans “fail to understand that Donald Trump will be our 45th president, that he will be inaugurated on January 20.”

Lahren was reacting to reports that a number of performers fear a backlash from left-wing fans if they perform at Trump’s inauguration next month. After opera singer Andrea Bocelli met with the president-elect on Friday, some fans started a “Boycott Bocelli” campaign on social media.

Tobey MaGuire – Actors Who Seem Nice But Are Really Not

I saw Tobey MaGuire in the Spiderman movies, and in a few other movies. Based upon his depiction of Peter Parker in the Spiderman series, he seemed like he would be a nice enough guy in real life, but apparently not.

If the information reported in this Page Six article is accurate, MaGuire sounds like a rude, condescending, douche.

Tobey MaGuire Is A Jerk At The Poker Table

An excerpt:

June 2014

by Richard Johnson

Former “Spider-Man” actor Tobey Maguire — a regular winner in high-stakes poker games — “was the worst tipper, the best player, and the absolute worst loser,” according to Molly Bloom, who organized games for Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck.

A Vanity Fair excerpt of Bloom’s new memoir, “Molly’s Game” (ItBooks/HarperCollins), tells how a cocktail waitress from Colorado became Hollywood’s “Poker Princess,” taking home more than $50,000 a night.

Bloom, 36, details how the games ended for good when Maguire decided she was making too much money. The “Seabiscuit” star humiliated her in front of the other players, ordering her to “bark like a seal who wants a fish” for a $1,000 chip.

She tried to laugh it off, but Maguire persisted, “I’m not kidding. What’s wrong? You’re too rich now? You won’t bark for a thousand dollars?”
