Say It Ain’t So, Jean-Luc!

This story is just depressing. It’s really sad that Patrick Stewart wants to become and American citizen to America to disrupt it and hate… Why should he be let in with that attitude?

Why can’t he be a builder, not a breaker?

It’s so childish. It’s part of the liberal mentality.

Jane Fonda: I’m a Victim, Too!

This interview, “Me, Jane,” stinks and wreaks of attention-seeking. Jane Fonda obviously feels she’s being left behind in the all-consuming race for attention that governs most actors.

It’s also part of a seemingly new phenomenon, victimism. Certainly it’s never been as strong as it is now — the desire by so many to be seen as victims. In this case we have a highly successful, world famous, high-profile, award-winning multimillionaire yearning to be seen as a victim.

A few points.

Fonda says, “It took me 60 years to learn how to say no,” and portrays herself as some kind naive hayseed. She seems to have confused herself with young Cat Ballou.

Does anybody believe that Fonda has been a shrinking violet her whole life? She grew up in Hollywood, the daughter of Hollywood royalty. Her brother was Peter Fonda, who was on the cutting edge of every hippy hipster experimental lifestyle movement that came down the pike.

She claims she discovered feminism after seeing “The Vagina Monologues,” which debuted in 1996.

Okay, here you already know we’re being snowed. Jane Fonda was already active in feminism in the 1970s. The interviewer doesn’t bring this up.

“The men in my life were wonderful, but victims of a [patriarchal] belief system,” she says.

Would that include Henry Fonda, darling of classic America Hollywood liberalism?; Peter Fonda (see above)?; Free Love playboy Roger Vadim?; or Commie pinko icon Tom Hayden? That’s a pretty broad leftwing spectrum of male chauvinist pigs ya’ got there, Janie.

She worries that the Hollywood Blacklist is coming back because of so many stars speaking out (from the left). She means the one against liberals not the one that the liberals, who control Hollywood, have against conservatives.

The poor thing relates that she recently went to protest a pipeline in Alberta, Canada, and the locals at the airport had the nerve to tell her to go home, they didn’t want her around. She whimpers that so many people disagree with her and they (unjustly) complain that she’s a spoiled, ignorant, elite brat. She apparently says this with a straight face.

Poor, Jane, the world just doesn’t understand how lucky it is to have her speaking out. Snap to it, people, Janie has places to be, people to meet, clothes to model, glamor to bask in. What do you have, peasant!?! Learn your place!

She worries that the health care “infrastructure” will collapse when Planned Parenthood is defunded. You see, so many women get their health care from PP, according to Jane.

Uh, no they don’t. It’s an abortion mill franchise almost exclusively. That’s like describing “Hour Eyes” as a full service medical establishment.

Of course a Hollywood woman who got her start playing on her looks now complains that women are judged on their looks and that’s not fair to older women, which said complainer has become. She then leaps eagerly into a photo shoot to demonstrate what a hot MILF she is.

And people wonder why liberals so often come across as airheads.

Much of the interview is little more than a mutual tongue bath between Fonda and “activist and actress,” typically narcissistic Millennial Brie Larsen (who constantly inserts herself into the interview – Brie, honey, you’re dimwitted doll, but this isn’t about you.).

Jane regales us with the numerous times that she stood up to her “boss.”

When did Jane Fonda ever have a “boss”? When she was known as the daughter of Hollywood power Henry Fonda? Not bloody likely. Who’s going to cross Henry Fonda? When she was a producer, award-winning actress and bankable star in the 1970s-80s? Who was going to commit occupational suicide battling her? When she was Tom Hayden’s running buddy trying to pull the Democratic Party to the left and revolutionize America? Good luck getting any invites to Hollywood’s coolest parties. When she was “feeling the burn”? At the time she was one of the most recognizable and influential celebrities on the planet.

The biggest bombshell here is the claim to have been raped and sexually abused. She doesn’t name names and is quite coy on that, simply stating it as if noting she was on a plane few times. It has a “me too,” feeling about it. As if no one would ever admit they hadn’t been on an airplane, how gauche.

Sexually abused? I’m a bit skeptical but maybe when she was very young; before she was “liberated.” A lot of that free love and Hollywood swinging back in the 1960s and 1970s is now considered “abuse.” (Remember how these very same people accused people who behaved themselves back then of being squares and uncool, now they have flipped their viewpoint but refuse to acknowledge that the uncool squares back then were really right! Ah, being a liberal means never having to say you were wrong!)

Who knows, maybe she’s referring to liberal icon Tom Hayden or superswinger Roger Vadim? Both are now conveniently dead as are all those patriarchal producers, directors and male co-stars. I’m assuming she’s referring exclusively to men…

Jane obviously doesn’t want these young women hogging all the attention with their rape and sexual abuse stories. Those founding mothers of feminism are showing the young whippersnappers that they can match them for victimization. In fact, they were victims before these neophyte feminist small fry were glints in the eye of their mothers’ turkey basters… Double in fact, they practically invented victimization.

 

Amy Schumer as Barbie?

This story about Amy Schumer being cast as Barbie in a live action Barbie movie makes one scratch their head.

This isn’t a spoof of Barbie, according to the story.

Schumer isn’t going to ever be confused with the statuesque doll with the “impossible” figure. And her image as of late has morphed from schlub loser chick (where she made her name) to a more politically aggressive “smart” progressive romantic comedy actress. Again, not exactly the resume for Barbie.

Is it possible that Schumer could play it straight?

One would assume that a Barbie movie would be aimed at little girls. Can’t see Schumer going there.

Could she be going for a lighthearted romantic comedy? Maybe but what would be the point of hauling “Barbie” into it since Barbie has never been associated with comedy.

Could this be yet another Baby Boomer fixation, something they can’t seem to let go no matter how much it needs to be pried from their nearly dead hands. They just “have to do something.” That’s the genesis of so many bad ideas that they have inflicted upon humanity over the last five decades.

Can the producers or Schumer be planning to turn their “Barbie” movie into a more political movie? A “rebooted” Barbie? Issuing a feminist slap back at the 1950s and the childhood doll of so many Baby Boomers? Having modern Barbie as a snarky female executive breaking the glass ceiling and proving superior to modern beta male Kens. Her Skipper sidekick could be played by the nouveau svelte Melissa McCarthy.

And never have to rely on her looks.

Or maybe they’ll “doll”-up Schumer and then humiliate her — “proving” that modern frumpiness is the answer to everything and always wins Ken. Or maybe wins Skipper since the LGBTQWERTY crowd needs to be acknowledged at every turn these days.

What would be the point beyond being another vanity project that will cost a surprisingly large amount of money to make, get a huge marketing effort and then lose a lot of money.

Or the idea might just disappear, like so many other Hollywood projects.

But not to let some Hollywood disasters disappear, here’s some more election night treats. Dontcha just love Chelsea Handler’s waterworks. Yeah, Chelsea, women aren’t emotional… Thanks for checking the box on that “stereotype.” Melt, snowflakes! Melt!

Is Humor the Best Weapon?

During the 1960s and 1970s, when modern radical liberalism was young and on the march, humor along with music were two of its chief weapons in communicating its message throughout the popular culture and recruiting youth to their side. They were also used to bludgeon those old fuddy-duddies holding progress back.

It can be said that liberals have lost their sense of humor since then. Their humor now is generally about as subtle and funny as a sledge hammer.

Conservatives on the other hand have gotten much funnier.

Steve Hayward over at Power Line assembled these two great send-ups of the Hollywood “Save the Day” political commercial that appeared a week or so ago.

The first one is good and professional but the second one is genius. You know that’s what those Hollywood airheads are really thinking.

As Kenny Banya would say, “It’s comedy gold!” Watch and enjoy.

The Culture Wars

One reason that conservatism constantly seems to be in retreat is that our “culture,” and by that I’m shorthanding for movies, TV shows, newspapers and other news media, the publishing industry, the theater, academia, the arts, et al, is dominated, essentially controlled, by liberals. And they deploy it almost exclusively to promote liberalism, breed more liberals and destroy any who resist.

I’ll save the lengthy disquisition on this to address a few notes that have come my way.

TV talk show host Wendy Williams seems like a level-headed lady, as far as women afternoon talk show hosts go. Recently she echoed what Stacey Dash has said — that organizations such as the NAACP and “historically black colleges” are by definition racist and if one wants to move to the post-racial society such organizations should wither away. Judging people by the color of their skin is racist no matter how you justify it.

Of course in the TV industry you dare not say such things and Williams found herself quickly under attack from the liberal cultural commissar mob. Sadly she muttered her apology. But as with all liberal inquisitions an apology is not enough and the pound of flesh extracted. Several staffers were canned. I’m sure that Williams is probably now writing her check to the Hillary Clinton campaign…

In case you hadn’t heard, HBO is wanting to get into the nightly news business. Their brilliant, never-before-tried plan? Hire a bunch of people from the same places that staff all the other TV news outlets (other than possibly Fox [though it might be turning too]) — New York Times, HuffPo, The Guardian, Buzzfeed, etc. Now more liberal news/propaganda, just in case some HBO viewer missed it on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN or MSNBC.

Why can’t HBO just stick to entertainment (much of it highly propagandized as well)? Why must everything be increasingly politicized?

So how is everything going for the great liberal propaganda machine? Well, according to this story, the number of pilots being shot in the L.A. area is down to historic lows.

Everyone is absolutely puzzled by how this could be happening. Has not California and the Los Angeles area mandated the highest of wages and the most bountiful worker “rights,” benefits and regulations? Has it not instituted the most draconian of living and environmental regulations and costs? Has it not made employment of labor expensive and the production of product expensive? According to Democrats that is supposed to be the magic recipe for success. What could have gone wrong?

Don’t worry, I’m sure that L.A. and California politicians will be working on turning the dreadful tide.

Los Angeles city and county will pass an ordinance mandating another increase in wages, regulations and some free stuff – and no more cheap interns! Then they’ll demand that the industry shoot more pilots there. (Then they’ll be shocked next year that production fell further.)

The state of California will do the same along with adding some “green” energy regs — because all those lights in Hollywood use energy, dontcha know; mandate the hiring of various Democratic party hangers-on, their children and members of select/approved racial and sexual-orientation groups through the “diversity” rubric; add more employment and HR regulations; and they might entertain a tax break targeted at some of the more politically active producers… And they’ll conclude with a demand that the industry shoot more pilots in SoCal. (And be shocked next year that production fell further because all those progressive producers aren’t so generous when it comes to THEIR money and THEIR productions so they’ve moved THEIR productions elsewhere.)

And the cycle will begin again. Welcome to the mind of the liberal…

This last story followed shortly after the L.A. Story — The California Film Commission is touting the success of its Tax Breaks for Rich Film Makers program. Yes, nothing like those poor, struggling, artists, needing tax breaks. Especially “women of color” like Oprah.

Our media views everything through the race/sex lens. FYI – that’s racist and sexist. Weren’t we trying to get away from that? All of which seems to bring us back to Wendy Williams.
