No Oscars for honesty. Plenty for hypocrisy

As the dirty laundry of Hollywood gets aired how many celebrities forgot that the internet has a half life of infinity and that there are trolls that will go to the ends of the earth to dig up things actors did in the past. Whether it be Jimmy Kimmel asking young girls to fondle his crotch to see if they could tell what the bulge was or Ben Affleck grabbing a handful of reporters’ breasts one thing is for sure, the public have such a low opinion of celebrities that one wonders why the Democrats want these liberal elites championing their causes. This video at election time last year spoofing the previous one done by Hollywood actors (who by the way made jokes about Mark Ruffalo ‘showing his dick’ if they registered – I mean how funny is that!?!? NOT.) was perhaps one of the best send ups which summarises why they should just stick to film making and shut up about everything else.

Listen to this Golden Globes speech by Meryl Streep and put all of her words she made about the President in the context of the then untouchable Weinstein as she said,

when the powerful use their position to bully others we all lose”

We need the principled press to hold them to account..”

”I only ask that the famously well heeled foreign Hollywood press and all of us…to supporting the committee to protect journalists…to protect them going forward…we’re going to need them…and they’ll need us too…to safeguard the truth…”

Isn’t it a privilege to be an actor?…yes it is and we have to remind ourselves of the privilege and responsibility of the act of empathy

How prophetic those words are given the denial of the real culture of Hollywood. That as vulgar as the man she accused in her speech isn’t it ironic that her privileges were in part granted by safeguarding people from the truth by protecting the very journalists who turned a blind eye to the bullies so they wouldn’t be held to account. Which part is the act of empathy? Not even sympathy.

Disrespect invites disrespect indeed

There is an old Jewish proverb which goes along the lines of “Slander slays three people: the speaker, the spoken to, and the spoken of”  I won’t for a second defend Trump’s locker-room talk or whatever but the champagne socialist celebrity class are the kings/queens of ‘disrespect.’ From the ones that threatened to leave the country, to stitching up VP-elect Mike Pence at Hamilton, one thing we do know is that their love of country is utterly  “conditional.”

Liberals and celebrity SJWs have been playing the man not the ball since even before the election was lost. Their snide arrogance about the impossibility of a Trump presidency showed how out of touch they truly are in their multi million dollar gated mansions. I’m sure they’re not feeling the pain of Detroit which has seen its population shrink from a third or Atlantic City in half.

They happily sit by and watch the most disgraceful exit of any sitting President in history and say nothing. Obama’s complete land mining of the White House lawns are evidence of that. Michelle Obama’s speech about “what it feels like to have no hope” is no better yet liberals want to support her for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Excuse me but isn’t this “disrespect” of the highest order? What was that about when they go low, we go high?

I have always believed that your behaviour leaving a job is more important than starting it. It isn’t an image thing but about dignity. The Dems lost this election because they overlooked the very people they claim to support. In fact how terrible a candidate did Clinton have to be on the basis of Obama’s untouchable legacy to lose to a candidate who threw verbal punches. Like it or not he read the mood of the country better. He was visiting the afflicted areas not cozying up at $1,000 plate lunches of elites. Some may call him an idiot but if one is totally outplayed who are the real fools?

If you want to get a picture of respect, look how quickly corporate America is snapping to attention at his comments. Boeing, Lockheed, Ford, GM, Carrier etc are seeing their share prices hit on the basis of gouging the American people (whether business savvy decisions or not) and he hasn’t even got his shoes under the desk

Make  no mistake, I have less respect for people who bury their judgement and act in the most hypocritical manner and seek to create division by looking to sabotage the inauguration and refuse service to people who voted democratically because their opinions differ. I’m sure being buried under a rock financially while working two jobs is not the American dream. Trump is still yet to take office. He’ll make mistakes but if liberals keep up their misguided hatred while in office it will be they not him that create problems.

If celebrities were true to the country they’ve made their fortunes in at the very least they could encourage unity not division. I think Meryl Streep is a fine actress but she should pay respect to the Trump and Clinton voters who would love to live her comfortable  way of life.
