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.

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.

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.

Attention Celebrities: Winning an Election Isn’t Automatic by Todd Shepherd

Attention Celebrities: Winning an Election Isn’t Automatic by Todd Shepherd

Media titan Oprah Winfrey made waves this week when she said she was reconsidering whether to run for president given Donald Trump’s success, but fame hasn’t always translated to political success, and there are plenty of examples of celebrities who took a shot at wooing voters and fell short at the polls.

…She’s not the only one pondering the possibilities. The New Republic published an article in January titled, “Democrats Should Run a Celebrity for President, Too.” And Michael Moore was quoted as telling CNN, “Democrats would be better off if they ran Oprah or Tom Hanks … Why don’t we run beloved people?”

…So far, however, most of the celebrities who have converted their fame into political power favors Republicans and includes people like Ronald Reagan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood and Sonny Bono. Jesse Ventura’s winning run for governor was as a member of the last vestiges of Ross Perot’s Reform Party.

Trump is doing for TV ratings and print subscriptions what President Obama did for gun sales: sending them through the roof.

Poll: Many Americans Turn Off TV When Awards Shows Get Too Political

Poll: Many Americans Turn Off TV When Awards Shows Get Too Political by B. Payton, Feb 2017

A lot of Americans are turning their TV sets off when award shows get too political. That’s bad news for Hollywood, but good news for America.

The Hollywood Reporter/National Research Group, surveyed a group of 800 Americans, half of whom voted for Hillary Clinton, while half voted for Donald Trump, to see what they thought about increasingly politicized awards shows.

Of the Trump voters surveyed, 66 percent said they turn the TV off when an awards show speech gets too political.

Unsurprisingly, very few Clinton voters (19 percent) say they turn off the tube when a speech veers into the political wilderness. When asked if Hollywood represents their core values well, 54 percent of Democrats responded affirmatively versus a mere 20 percent of Republicans.

The obvious reason: Hollywood is liberal. When actresses like Meryl Streep go on about how terrible Trump is, people who didn’t vote for him won’t tune her out because they agree. This isn’t rocket science, yet this Jezebel headline makes it out to be a befuddling mystery: “Trump Voters Hate Political Speeches at Awards Shows For Some Reason.”

…That 19 percent of Clinton voters are also turning off their TV sets suggests the disgust isn’t simply a partisan one. It’s obvious many Americans, regardless of who they voted for, just want a freaking break from politics.

If this article  below is correct 25% is still far too high.

Oscars Poll Reveals Trump Voters Don’t Like Liberal Spiels – Feb 2017

By Sarah Stites

The data comes from a February poll conducted by the National Research Group and commissioned by The Hollywood Reporter. According to the results, only 25 percent of participants have ever changed their opinions based on information presented in a political awards show speech. Sorry, Meryl, that includes you.

Although only 19 percent of Hillary Clinton voters turned off the television when actors got political, two thirds of Donald Trump’s supporters admitted to doing so.

President Trump is now the most famous person in history. That’s why so many celebrities hate him – by Piers Morgan

President Trump is now the most famous person in history. That’s why so many celebrities hate him. by Piers Morgan

Some excerpts:

And the award for envy goes to… Is the real reason Hollywood’s snowflakes hate Trump so much because he’s become more famous than any of them will ever be, asks PIERS MORGAN

The Oscars are nearly upon us and tension is building.

No, not for who might win the big awards on Sunday night.

But over which star can win the most coveted prize for Best Celebrity Trump Hater on the Planet.

This is the big one for all those hysterical Hollywood liberal snowflakes who’ve been frothing at the mouth since Donald Trump became President.

They’ve got live TV, a billion or more people watching around the world, and a room full of 3,500 largely like-minded souls all waiting to roar on every Trump-bashing speech from the podium.

….This week, Judd Apatow, high profile producer of movies like 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up, told a Los Angeles audience that after election night he felt ‘like a person about to get raped but I didn’t know how bad it would be. Now, I feel like I’ve just been raped. I just don’t know if I’m going to get murdered.’

The crowd wildly applauded.

Many of them, I suspect, had been on the recent Women’s March.

Yet they were happy to cheer a sickening rape analogy from a man who has repeatedly attacked Bill Cosby over claims that he raped women, and who just 18 months ago was even honoured by the Rape Foundation.
