I couldn’t help but ask that question to nobody in particular last night. It occurred to me was after Kanye West went on an N-word and F-word rant that made the MTV bleep guy collapse from exhaustion.
Before that there was Miley Cyrus, who pleasured herself with a foam finger while the 20-year-old singer mock doggie-styled with 36-year-old Robin Thicke:
At some point later on that’s when it occurred to me that to a great degree, this same bunch is offended by conservatives. I guess it’s a compliment, really. Not that I’m stuffy or anything, but it’s just funny that the left pushes the meme that conservatives hate women and then looks the other way while young girls shriek approval as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke set the feminist movement back 30 years.
Lady Gaga summed up the evening best when she kicked off the show. I’ll never look into my toilet again without seeing this face staring back:
You’ve probably heard about the “racial incident” Oprah Winfrey had to endure in Switzerland (key words in bold):
The owner of the upscale Swiss boutique where Oprah Winfrey claimed she was barred from buying a $38,000 by a ‘racist’ sales assistant today demanded to speak to the star she branded ‘over-sensitive’ and insisted her employee did ‘everything right’.
The rather fearsome-looking Trudi Goetz said she wanted to speak with the talk show billionairess ‘as soon as possible’ and also revealed her petrified member of staff will not be sacked or punished.
She said: ‘I don’t know why she talked of racism. I am sorry, but perhaps she is being a little over-sensitive here. Maybe she was somewhat offended because she was not immediately recognized in the store.’
The firestorm blew up after Oprah – who is promoting a film – gave an interview with Entertainment Tonight, in which she recalled a clerk at an upscale Zurich boutique refusing to show her a handbag.
Winfrey said she was told she could not afford the $38,000 tom Ford Jennifer tote and said it proved that ‘racism is still an issue’.
By total coincidence, something similar happened eight years ago, and Oprah used the alleged incident to pitch her pal Don Cheadle’s movie “Crash.” Flashback to 2005:
Luxury store Hermes on Wednesday apologized to Oprah Winfrey for turning her away last week, saying that its Paris store was closed to set up for a public relations event when the talk show host stopped by.
“Hermes regrets not having been able to accommodate Ms. Winfrey and her team and to provide her with the service and care that Hermes strives to provide to each and every one of its customers worldwide,” the store said in a statement.
“Hermes apologizes for any offense taken due to such circumstances.”
Harpo Productions spokeswoman Michelle McIntyre said Winfrey “will discuss her ‘crash moment’ when her show returns from hiatus in September.”
“Crash” is a film dealing with race relations. The phrase “crash moment” refers to situations where a party feels discriminated against on the basis of skin color.
Maybe Oprah’s “problems” at high end boutiques have nothing to do with racism, but happen because clerks see her coming they know there’s a chance they might be used as pawns in her “promotion-by-racism-allegations” game and they don’t want anything to do with helping her.
Like Ace, I really have no idea who Amanda Bynes is, but she apparently has major issues if this person is telling her she needs to get her sh*t together. That’s kind of like Jay Carney telling you that you need to “cool it on the lying.”
Just when you thought Meryl Streep’s portrayal of Margaret Thatcher couldn’t be beat, we now have a new famous liberal lady (Jane Fonda) playing another famous conservative lady (Nancy Reagan), which is because there are no liberal women out there besides Hillary Clinton to make movies about.
Nobody would pay to see them.
Jane Fonda has a flip, three-word response to people outraged at her casting as Nancy Reagan in a new Hollywood movie — “Get a life.”
“I might not have always agreed with Nancy Reagan, but I admire her, and I’d never try to insert my views when playing her. I tried to be who she was: a forceful, loyal, powerful first lady.’’
Why are these liberal ladies making movies about famous conservative woman? For the same reason that liberals make movies where there are nothing but violent gun fights…and they hate guns:
They need the money.
When I read that Jane Fonda said, “Get a life.” it’s exactly what I think every single time somebody brings up the fact that blacks were slaves and white people are still guilty.
In fact, on FOX’s “The FIVE” today, everyone was gushing over the song “Accidental Racist” just released by Brad Paisley ad LL J.
Really? We are still talking about slavery?
In the words of Jane Fonda who wants everyone to forget that she was a moron during the sixties:
I think the entire liberal media should just…”Get a life.”
Ashley Judd, who was convinced by the democratic party to run against that gun-filibusting enemy of Obama, Mitch McConnell, for his Senate seat, changed her mind about running for his office. Evidently she quit because she found out what they were going to say about her.
Yahoo News: Sen. Mitch McConnell was prepared to go after Ashley Judd as “emotionally unbalanced,” according to secret tapes of the Republican’s strategy session, but the release of those tapes have prompted an FBI investigation into who bugged the senator’s office, his campaign said today.
The tape of the Feb. 2 strategy session — released by Mother Jones magazine — recorded McConnell and his aides devising tactics for discrediting actress Ashley Judd who at the time was widely expected to enter the U.S. Senate race to take on McConnell. She has since decide to not run for office.
But while Judd was mulling the race, McConnell’s staff was strategizing that the best way to hurt her candidacy would be to highlight her past struggles with depression and her religious views, according to the tapes.
Religious views? She has religious views?
Nobody will mention the fact that Jimmy Carter’s grandson clandestinely videotaped Mitt Romney saying he wasn’t concerned about the 47 percent that were not going to vote for him, and how they used that tape to help Obama win the election (another Mother Jones special). They sliced and diced it, and put it out as Mitt didn’t give a hoot about the “poor” minorities.
Now poor Ms. Judd will be victim of hated political abuse… as if, the democrats have never trashed anyone.
As a side note: Using entertainers as surrogate representatives seems to be the new Democrat plan. Dennis Rodman gets sent to North Korea, Beyonce gets sent to Cuba… Ashley Judd wants to be a senator. So, when is Ben Affleck moving to New Hampshire?
Robert Redford is at it again…he is going to redeem Obama’s past mentors: Bill Ayers and his weather underground by making a movie about them.
Redford was at his best as the Sundance kid….that’s when he didn’t speak. Like the chauvinist woman that I pretend to be at the very right moments, I preferred him that way. I can’t stand it when he talks about politics. Obviously, he hasn’t read anything since Watergate, and his porn collection.
What? You haven’t heard about his famous porn collection? That’s according to some film student who accidently found Redford’s vast porn collection by mistake in his barn…at Sundance.
Yes…the whole barn. (VIA: Entertainment Tonight. I used to read a LOT of trash.)
I don’t have to try too hard to taint Redford’s reputation, he is going to do that himself with the upcoming movie he is making glorifying the Weathermen.
Deadline is reporting that Robert Redford and Shia LaBeouf have been cast to star in the political thriller, “The Company You Keep,” based on the Neil Gordon novel about the domestic terrorist group called the Weather Underground.
“The Company You Keep” tells the story of a 30 year long FBI manhunt for a Weather Underground terrorist, to be played by Redford, who must evade law enforcement after his identity is outed by an ambitious reporter (LaBeouf).
So…here’s the plot: These weathermen were protesting the slaughter of thousands killed in Vietnam by Nixon, and so they decided to bomb and kill some police (pigs to them) and start a revolution, and they were so misunderstood, harassed, and hunted down by the Nazi’s Republicans, their lives were horrible…but they single- handily stopped the Vietnam War..or something like that.
The film will leave out Bernardine Dohrn calling conservatives, “Racist, armed and hostile,” and the fact that Bill Ayers to this day, says he does not denounce the fact that despite their ineptitude, they did manage to kill a few dozen people.
—Or… that Obama was trained by Ayers personally in how to overthrow capitalist pigs.
I don’t remember Redford ever ‘protesting’ during the Vietnam War, but while the rest of the country moved on, the liberals keep pretending the sixties never ended.
So… look for the Oscars… just not in Redford’s barn.
Jim Carrey’s had a lot of practice talking out his ass both on screen and off. Carrey’s latest idiocy was to toss a blanket insult at everybody who believe in Second Amendment rights, which is why this is perfection:
A seller on eBAY is auctioning off his autographed photo of Jim Carrey so that he can afford to buy a gun to protect his family.
The seller says in the auction description:
“I’m selling this Jim Carrey Autographed B&W 8X10 Photo (mint condition) in hopes that I sell it for enough to buy a GUN to protect my family.
“I’m thinking of getting the Glock G30S .45 ACP Pistol which retails for $640 U.S.
“Hopefully I can get at least that much for the autographed photo. If it sells for more than I’ll get a laser sight for it and take some gun safety classes and get my “concealed carry” permit.”
The seller says he lost all respect for Carrey after watching his video which mocks Charlton Heston and gun owners.
As for the “heartless motherf*#@ers” and their gun violence culture Carrey denounces, if he wants to do something he should first have a chat with his fellow Hollywood hypocrites:
Co-anchor George Stephanopoulos compared Mrs. Obama’s appearance at the Oscars, Sunday, to the real mission in the movie Argo: Rescuing American hostages from Iran. He thrilled over the secretive appearance: “Producers go undercover to the White House in a move straight out of Argo.” Elizabeth Vargas echoed, “It was like something out of Argo.” The hostages in Iran faced death, not the revelation of a TV appearance.
The MSM loves to compare President Obama to the movie The American President, and now FLOTUS has her movie: Argo. Because broadcasting a video feed live from Washington, DC to Hollywood is just like rescuing a half dozen people from certain death in Iran during the Islamic revolution.
What I think some of these Obamaphile media types are missing with this comparison is that “Argo” was a fake film — it was just a front used as cover for other efforts. To that end, maybe Argo is worthy as a comparison to “Hope & Change” in general, but not to the First Lady’s appearance at the Oscars.
In any case, after what happened in Benghazi you think these people would be a little embarrassed to bring up the topic of daring and successful embassy rescues, but it’s quite the opposite:
Some days the fawning is more nauseating than others. That was one of those stomach-turners that even Dramamine can’t touch.
