Hollywood and the Media Really Upset by Ricky Gervais’ Hosting at 2020 Golden Globes

Hollywood and the Media Really Upset by Ricky Gervais’ Hosting at 2020 Golden Globes

Oh, Hollywood and the media – both worlds consisting largely of very vocal liberals – did not take kindly to host Ricky Gervais dressing down of them at all.

I am not an expert on all things Gervais, but I gather from what I have read that he is an atheist and a liberal.

Hollywood types and the liberal media – and most of our journalists are liberal – loathe anyone who is a conservative or who lives in what they dismiss as “fly over country.”

Then your “everyday” liberals on Twitter were throwing a fit, lecturing conservatives, “Hey, you guys DO realize that Gervais is an atheist and a liberal, and he probably wouldn’t agree with your views, right?” -Yeah, we know, and we don’t care.

I’m actually fine with people holding opposing views to mine, so long as they are not unreasonable, rude, or arrogant about it – or hypocritical.

What Gervais did was point out what enormous hypocrites most of Hollywood are, and they did not like it one bit.

Hollywood Pulls Ads for Movie About Liberal Elites Hunting ‘MAGA Types’

“The Hunt” Movie Trailer Features Elites Hunting “Deplorables” For Sport 

Hollywood blockbuster that satirizes killing of ‘deplorables’ causes outrage: ‘Demented and evil’

Excerpts:

by Brian Flood, Aug 8, 2019

A controversial movie about privileged vacationers hunting “deplorables” for sport is ruffling feathers more than a month before its scheduled release and after tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

“The Hunt” is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers taking a private jet to a five-star resort where they embark on a “deeply rewarding” expedition that involves hunting down and killing designated humans. The Hollywood Reporter reported on Tuesday that “Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire” following the shootings after ESPN reportedly pulled a trailer for the film that had been previously cleared to air on the sports network.

Oh, Dear. Singer Taylor Swift Is Getting More Political (August 2019)

Oh, Dear. Singer Taylor Swift Is Getting More Political (August 2019)

Update Below – Kid Rock criticized Taylor Swift for going Political

In an older post on my blog, I noted how thrilled I was that Swift – known for singing pop songs – was keeping any political opinions she may have had to herself.

In the past year or two, that has certainly changed. It seems she’s getting even more political in the last few months.

A word here for any “Swifties” (die hard Swift fans – a lot of hard-core fan bases these days can be very toxic): I do not have anything against Taylor Swift. I do not hate Ms. Swift, and I wish her the best.

My general preference, though, is for celebrities to stick to entertaining and not opine publicly about politics.

Taylor Swift Opens Up About Decision to Publicly Support LGBTQ Community | THR News

Taylor Swift Talks Trump, Katy Perry and Her LGBT Support

Taylor Swift covers a lot of ground in Vogue’s sprawling September cover story, which published today. In addition to providing a sneak preview of her forthcoming album, “Lover,” and lots of self-analysis on fame, she spoke about the motivations behind her support of the LGBTQ community, sexism, President Trump and her reunion with Katy Perry.

New Woke Taylor Swift Has Issue With ‘White Cisgender Males’

Excerpts:

Taylor Swift seems to be looking for a new reputation as leftwing savant and the singer has definitely put in a good effort, working hard to slam conservative perspectives ever since coming out against Tennessee Republican Senator Marsha Blackburn in the November Midterm elections less than a year ago.

In that short period she’s gone from knocking Blackburn’s platform of hate to now brutally slamming “white cisgender males” in Vogue’s September 2019 issue.

Well, fine, Taylor, but aren’t you currently dating one?

Tucker Carlson is Now the Jussie Smollett of Conservative Pundits

Tucker Carlson is Now the Jussie Smollett of Conservative Pundits

It’s conservatives such as FOX cable news television host Tucker Carlson that make me feel embarrassed at times to be a conservative.

Conservatives believe in the concept of taking personal responsibility. Many conservatives – Tucker Carlson in particular – regularly ridicule or criticize liberals for maintaining a “victimhood culture,” in which liberals declare that this or that group (e.g., women, black people, Muslims) are victims.

A few days ago, a liberal site began releasing, over a period of days, collections of controversial statements Tucker Carlson made over a period of years when he was calling into a radio program hosted by a guy calling himself “Bubba The Love Sponge.”

Those inflammatory comments included, but are not limited to, Carlson basically arguing that child rape resulting from forced or arranged marriages is really no big deal; Carlson comparing women to dogs and referring to women as being primitive; and Carlson going along with crude jokes about his daughter and teen girls.

Most recently, a new batch of Carlson comments were released where Carlson was making crude comments about “Miss Teen USA” contestants.

At first, Tucker’s defenders were saying that some of these comments were made “over ten years ago,” as if to say that decency has expiration limits (it does not).

Actor Jussie Smollett’s 2019 Hate Crime Hoax

Actor Jussie Smollett’s 2019 Hate Crime Hoax

When I first read about the allegations – actor Smollett, formerly of the television show “Empire,” claimed to have been attacked by two white men wearing MAGA (“Make America Great Again”) hats in Chicago, who he claims assaulted him and yelled at him, “This is MAGA country!” – I didn’t jump in to comment either way.

I initially felt there was something “off” and too strange about Smollett’s account to be true, but I wasn’t totally sure. I was willing to wait a few days to see what, if anything, the Chicago police department would say, before weighing in and offering my opinion.

As the days went by, more and more details emerged, to the point the Chicago police department had a press conference where they laid out a lot of the evidence and details that revealed that there was no hate crime: Smollette had hired two of his friends to pretend to attack him. Smollett is still maintaining his innocence, but it looks to me as though he is guilty, that he staged the whole affair.

Before the cops came out and said much of anything, liberal celebrities were all over Twitter defending him, and blaming anyone who voted for Trump (I myself sat out the 2016 election, so I did not vote for Trump) – liberal celebrities were blaming anyone who voted for Trump. They were depicting anyone who voted for Trump as being racist and being anti-homosexual.

“Miscast,” “Wasted,” and “Impressive Resume'” – The Cliches and Inaccuracies in Entertainment Coverage or Movie Reviews about Actor Chris O’Dowd

“Miscast,” “Wasted,” and “Impressive Resume'” – The Cliches and Inaccuracies in Entertainment Coverage or Movie Reviews about Actor Chris O’Dowd

In writing several blog posts about actor Chris O’Dowd, a person who annoys me for reasons I’ve detailed elsewhere on this blog (he also turned out to be very disappointing), including but not limited to explaining in this blog post, I noticed a pattern in movie reviews, articles, or interviews, that mention him.

One of the most inaccurate, baffling, and annoying commonalities I see turn up in coverage about O’Dowd would be a reference to his “Impressive CV” (with “C.V.” being the European equivalent to the American term “resume'”), or authors who refer to him, actor-wise, as being “in demand.”

Ten Hollywood Has-Beens Who Spent 2018 Obsessed with Trump by M. Margolis

Ten Hollywood Has-Beens Who Spent 2018 Obsessed with Trump

Excerpts:

I’ve previously written about how celebrities are ruining Twitter with their political and hate speech. For my last post of 2018, I’ve compiled a special list of Hollywood has-beens who are desperately trying to remain relevant despite Hollywood careers that are well beyond their expiration dates.

10. Rosie O’Donnell

I guess she’s a celebrity… or was. I don’t know. She’s been in a few movies you’ve probably seen.

The only two that come to mind are Sleepless in Seattle and A League of Their Own… but for sure, she had a briefly successful stint in Hollywood in the 1990s as a comedian/supporting actress who now has only the occasional guest spot on a television series.

She had a daytime talk show that only lasted six seasons… but rest assured, she still matters because she’s regularly bashing Trump and the GOP on Twitter!

Seven Times Hollywood Celebrities Wished Violence Against Trump in 2018

Excerpts:

Once again, several Hollywood celebrities spent the year fantasizing about violence against President Donald Trump, his family, members of his administration, and his supporters.

While down from the more than dozen celebrities who imagined violence against Trump in 2017, the Hollywood hate was still savage from the likes of Jim Carrey, John Legend, and Rosie O’Donnell.

Below is the worst of the worst.

3. Jim Carrey Draws Donald Trump Burning At the Stake

Actor Jim Carrey depicted President Trump being burned at the stake in a drawing posted to his social media page in August.

Actor Kevin Hart Getting Beaten Up By Liberals Over Old Negative Tweets About LGBT People (2018)

Actor Kevin Hart Getting Beaten Up By Liberals Over Old Negative Tweets About LGBT People (2018)

(Post updated below, Jan. 2019)

This circus never ends. I initially was not going to blog about this, but it keeps coming up in the news.

Actor Kevin Hart was being proposed to host the next Oscars, until someone said he made some really old tweets mocking homosexual people. Then liberals got in a tizzy, demand he not get the gig, and now, they are really shrieking that he should apologize.

Assorted links about the situation:

Kevin Hart Steps Down as Oscar Host

 Just 48 hours after agreeing to host the 91st Academy Awards, Kevin Hart unceremoniously stepped down late Thursday night on social media.

The turn of events followed outcry over previous anti-gay tweets, and comments Hart made during stand-up routines nearly 10 years ago. Some of the tweets were feverishly deleted throughout the day on Thursday, leading to an Instagram video from the comedian that only made matters worse for him.
