The Left demands that we remove statues and symbols that offend them. When are we going to remove the sidewalk stars from the Hollywood Walk of Fame for all celebrities accused of sexual misconduct and pedophilia?
Let’s start a movement everyone can to get behind. #RemoveTheirStar
Something about this video just creeps me the hell out. Knowing the back story that is Valerie Jarrett, to see her moving about the corridors of Hollywood power, making demands for film and television to give them pro-Obama propaganda is, when placed in historical context, something that should leave everyone wondering just how far this White House is willing to go to try and program the minds of all Americans. History is rife with dictators and despots who engaged in the very same kind of behavior, and yet, here we are, witnessing de facto President Valerie Jarrett openly doing the same.
Obama’s Joseph Goebbels Valerie Jarrett in action.
“You name it,” said Jarrett. “That’s part of why I’m in L.A. I’m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” When Jarrett says “it into the scripts,” she’s referring to getting references to Obamacare, the president’s signature legislation, into the scripts of TV shows and movies.
AmusingComments Off on James Caan Refuses to Be the Typical ‘Hollywood Liberal’
I knew Sonny Corleone wasn’t a metrosexual!
Veteran actor James Caan let people in on a little secret last week. After 46 successful years among Hollywood’s most outspoken liberal stars, he’s speaking up about breaking the mold.
“I’m an ultra conservative,” he said at Moet & Chandon’s 6th Annual Hollyshorts Film Festival Opening Night Celebration in Los Angeles.
“I’m not a G** damn Hollywood liberal, I’m not,” he said, adding he only watches Fox News.
Caan, who was at the event promoting his involvement with the online platform Openfilm.com, also added that he doesn’t think Hollywood actors need to comment on every single political issue. When Pop Tarts questioned him on California courts deeming Proposition 8, which bans same sex marriage, “unconstitutional,” he preferred to keep his lips sealed.
“I don’t want to comment on that. I’ll let those other geniuses do that – all those actors who like to find a stage to push their agendas,” he said. “They don’t have political science degrees… I certainly don’t. I’ll leave it to Sean Penn or Barbara Streisand to comment on that.”
AmusingComments Off on Killer Chic: Hollywood’s Sick Love Affair with Che Guevara
Giselle Bundchen wears him on her bikini. Johnny Depp wears him around his neck. And Benicio del Toro becomes him in Steven Soderbergh’s by-all-accounts-fawning four-hour biopic, Che, now in limited release.
Del Toro, who took home best actor honors at Cannes earlier this year, is already earning Oscar whispers for his performance. But “Che” is only the latest sign of Hollywood’s infatuation with Guevara, Castro, and other dictatorial goons (recently, Sean Penn had a cover story in The Nation lamenting unfair media coverage of the tyrannical Cuban and Venezuelan regimes).
“Killer Chic” tours the hellholes of totalitarianism through the eyes of Paquito D’Rivera, who left Cuba for artistic freedom and ended up becoming a Grammy Award-winning jazz player, and Kai Chen, a former member of the Chinese national basketball team whose relatives were hauled off under Mao Zedong’s Cultural Revolution. “Killer Chic” is a fascinating and troubling foray into Hollywood’s shallow–and callow–appropriation of murderous thugs.
