Nonsense About 'Crybaby' Conservatives and Hollywood

Brent Bozell and Tim Graham, Townhall

The line about crybabies is odd, isn't it? Has anyone ever heard more crying and screaming and raging coming from the Hollywood left than since the night Hillary Clinton sunk her battleship? Not a day goes by without finding one or two or 20 of them on Twitter, in awards ceremonies, on late-night television and anywhere else they can find an audience wailing hysterically. It doesn't matter who you are, or how big your star. Come out as a conservative in Hollywood and you're a marked man.

Happy times and starry dreams in Tinsel Town

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

We’ve just completed the first presidential primary of the 2020 election year, and the decision is unanimous. This was the Hollywood primary — not to be confused with the California primary — and after the votes were counted, there wasn’t a dry eye or a deplorable in sight. The winner was Oprah Winfrey, the onetime actress, sometime activist and full-time talk-show hostess and now a presidential nominee. You might even call her the front-runner of the Pity Party.

Hollywood, trade your trophies for humility

Editors, Washington Examiner

Awards shows have dwindled into pompous and dreary exercises in virtue signaling by secular sermonizers. Members of one of the wealthiest communities in the country clasp their trophies as licenses to preach politics over the heads of their approving peers into the homes of an increasingly irritated country.

Hollywood’s ‘Spotlight’ Crew Gives Weinstein a Pass

Bill Donohue, CNS News

Hollywood's moral capital was never in big supply, but now it is shot altogether. We don't need one more lecture about cover-ups and sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. When it comes to deceit, lying, and sexual deviance, Hollywood has no rival.

Hollywood Never Apologizes for Ultraviolence

L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham, CNS News

Movie stars have no problem mudslinging against the NRA and blaming it for mass shootings. But they have demonstrated a complete lack of moral introspection about their own glamorization of over-the-top violence with guns ... and everything else. Until they get serious about their own responsibility, they have no right to judge anyone else.

Feminism’s Experiment Against Common Sense

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Feminists defend and celebrate women who turn themselves into sexual objects, then forbid men from treating them as ones. Feminism calls for men to “control themselves,” but reserves the right to maintain an outrageously immodest culture — and to send out its commissars to crush anyone who notices the contradiction.

Democrats Cover Up Menendez And Weinstein Corruption

While the salacious details of the Weinstein and Menendez affairs have occupied the public mind a more important question is left unaddressed: What did the other Democrats know about these two corrupt sexual predators and when did they know it?

Why Did the Weinstein Scandal Happen Now?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Hillary Clinton has been running around the country, promoting her book while blaming everyone and everything conceivable for her defeat and acting as if she might decide to run again. What to do? How to shut this woman up and finally make her go away, maybe let the Democrats win again? One way might be to clean house. The long and cozy relationship between Weinstein and the Clintons is well known. Nothing could hurt "feminist" Hillary more than to be publicly linked once again with a rapist. Yuck.

Harvey Weinstein Has Destroyed Hollywood -- Now What?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

If conservative investors had any courage, this would be the time to make a hostile takeover of the movie business.  Unfortunately, they don’t.  Wealthy conservatives are delighted to support the Philharmonic, but when it comes to popular culture they turn away, as if afraid to get their hands dirty. That this is a huge mistake should be obvious.  They have abandoned the culture -- and our children -- to the creepiest people imaginable.

The Left’s Collusion with Harvey Weinstein

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

The fleshy, repellent, sinister look of Harvey Weinstein, akin to the brutal indifference on the face of an overfed badger before devouring his prey, is proof of the unity between body and soul. If beauty adorns virtue, ugliness adorns vice. The horror stories about Weinstein continue to multiply and now include tales of criminal flashing and sexual assault. Out of the mushrooming scandal has come a blast of dirt, from which particles are settling on top officials in the Democratic Party, starting with the Clintons and the Obamas.

Harvey Weinstein and the Death of 'Feminism'

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

While no one can characterize Weinstein as anything but a pig, the various women now coming out of the woodwork to report his repellent behavior (with more undoubtedly to come) are not exactly the purest people on the planet either. Unless they had IQs in the low 70s, these women knew full well in advance what they were getting into when they came to Hollywood and, specifically, when they went to work either as actresses or employees for Harvey Weinstein.

The Strange Case of Confederate Cool

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

For progressives, there are two Confederacies: the benign, hip mythology that channels counterculture defiance and that has been conveniently cleansed of slavery and secession, and the pernicious sort that imputes racism to its supposedly white-trash adherents. In other words, all Confederate romantics are bad, but some are not so bad after all.

They Stink

Scott McKay, The American Spectator

In any institution which has been taken over by the more egalitarian/iconoclastic/redistributionist elements of our society, which at this point generally includes nearly every one of the industries which control American culture, a very wide space is made for the inclusion of people who are manifestly, unquestionably and ridiculously unfit to contribute at the level they are appointed for.

Movie Review: Dunkirk

Dunkirk is not so much a war movie, as say The Longest Day, Band of Brothers or Saving Private Ryan is a war movie; it is a character study of the British people at a pivotal moment in world history and how British values and character overcame the Nazi juggernaut.

Hollywood YUUUGE Loser in Georgia Sixth

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

They may rejoice at Trump's low poll numbers, but beware.  As the man said, it's the economy, stupid.  Their boy (and he is a boy) Ossoff lost more substantially than expected in an upscale part of Georgia elitists should win. Enough of the Trump bashing.  Start thinking about how to make the country better.  Come up with some policies that make sense. Then maybe you'll start winning again.

Laughing Our Ossoff

As President Trump put it in an Election Night tweet: Well, the Special Elections are over and those that want to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN are 5 and O! All the Fake News, all the money spent = 0

Tell CNN Kathy Griffin Has To Be Fired

FLASH: CNN terminates Kathy Griffin as host of New Years Eve show. We urge CHQ readers to call CNN headquarters to demand that Kathy Griffin be fired for choosing to promote herself with such a vulgar and offensive image. Tell CNN that if the network stands for the values of decency, civility, and tolerance then Kathy Griffin has no place in their line-up.

Carpetbaggers Come Back To Georgia

Georgia suffered once before when carpetbaggers invaded the Peach State, and it will suffer again, should carpetbagging Democrat Jon Ossoff and his liberal Hollywood friends gain the victory in today’s Congressional District 6 special election.

Is a Populist Christian Movement Needed to Renew the Faith?

Just as millions of American voters picked up copies of the Constitution and began to ask out of touch elite politicians “where does it say you can do that,” we Christians should pick up our Bibles and ask out of touch elite church leaders, “where does it say same-sex marriage and transgenderism are OK”, and “where does the Bible endorse the heresy that claims God and Allah are the same”?

In liberal Hollywood, a conservative minority faces backlash in the age of Trump

David Ng, Los Angeles Times

For the vast majority of conservatives who work in entertainment, going to set or the office each day has become a game of avoidance and secrecy. The political closet is now a necessity for many in an industry that is among the most liberal in the country.
