You didn’t need to be some kind of a modern day Nostradamus to know what was going to be taking place at last night’s Golden Globe Awards. I think anyone would have been able to very easily foretell that even though Donald Trump would not be in attendance, he would, at least, be there in spirit, or more precisely, as the target of more than a few political barbs, not to mention a rather impassioned takedown by that tired, old, worn out looking, Hollyweird has-been, Meryl Streep.
And it was only a few seconds into his typically unfunny monologue that host Jimmy ‘The Drug Addict’ Fallon noted that the Globes was "one of the few places left where America still honors the popular vote." But, as those watching would come to find out, he was just getting started. Fallon went on to compare the president-elect to the evil King Joffrey in "Game of Thrones." Fallon asked, "What would it be like if King Joffrey had lived?" And then answered, "Well, in 12 days we're going to find out."
But it was Streep who decided to take things in a more serious direction, excoriating Trump without actually mentioning his name in an impassioned speech as she accepted the Cecil B. DeMille Award. And it was during her speech that she bravely declared how it is that she and her fellow colleagues "belong to the most vilified segments in American society right now." Streep is nothing more than a Hitlery flunky who spoke on Hitlery’s behalf at last year's Democrat National Convention.
Streep said the "performance" that had most stunned her this year was when Trump had mocked a disabled reporter. She said, "It was the moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back." She said, "This instinct to humiliate, when it's modeled by someone ... powerful, it filters down into everybody's life. Because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing."
Streep would go on to say, "It was the moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power and the capacity to fight back." And then she went on to say, "This instinct to humiliate, when it's modeled by someone ... powerful, it filters down into everybody's life. Because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing." I wonder, does she perhaps mean people like herself?
Streep also made sure to take the time to reference Trump's policies on immigration when she pointedly listed the multicultural heritage of many Hollywood actors. And she said, "Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners and if you kick them all out, you'll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts." And it should come as no surprise, considering her audience, that her idiotic comments were met with more than a few cheers.
And it was in Fallon's monologue that he referred to a Streep film, "Florence Foster Jenkins," in which she stars as "the worst opera singer in the world." Fallon added: "Even she turned down performing at Trump's inauguration." The mournful drama "Manchester by the Sea," he joked, was "the only thing from 2016 that was more depressing than 2016." He also noted that votes were tabulated by the accounting firm of "Ernst & Young & Putin." Man, is this guy funny or what?
And then to the stage came some clown by the name of Hugh Laurie, who in accepting his award for best-supporting actor for a movie that, frankly, I never heard of, also indulged in a few Trump ‘jokes’, speculating that this would perhaps be the last Golden Globes ceremony. And it was in explaining his pessimism about the awards surviving the Trump era that this loser said, "I don't mean to be gloomy, but it has the words 'Hollywood,' 'foreign' and 'press' in the title."
And in what I’m assuming was this dirtbag’s piss-poor attempt at humor, this moron claimed to be accepting his award "on behalf of psychopathic billionaires everywhere." But look, all that having been said, you have to watch and to care, and I do neither. And haven’t done so for years. So instead they embellish the ratings, because they know that most of America does not care or find it funny, because if the shoe was on the other foot, liberals would be screaming, like they did when they lost.
And I think it worth nothing that Streep did not explain how it is that a room full of multi-millionaires accepting gold statues for reciting lines on a page could possibly be more vilified than Christian bakers receiving a $135,000 fine for their religious beliefs or how celebrities sipping champagne in donated designer dresses and expertly-tailored tuxedos could be more vilified than a mentally disabled teen getting his scalp cut by four black thugs while shouting "f–ck white people" live on Facebook.
Streep explained hardly anything throughout her graceless, smug, arrogant, classless, disrespectful acceptance speech, in which she heaped praise on a room full of pampered rich people while wagging her perfectly manicured finger in the faces of those who don't see the world as she does, and while parroting the mainstream media lie that Donald Trump somehow ridiculed a reporter for his disability. But none of that really mattered to any of those in attendance.
Though she and her sycophants would surely disagree, this is not the speech of a passionate, wise, or seasoned woman gracefully passing the torch onto a new generation of attentive pupils. For that, see Peter O'Toole's Peter refined display of gratitude in his 2003 Honorary Oscar speech. Hers was nothing more than the speech given by a spoiled brat insulting the flyover Americans who didn't vote her way in a democratic election. And accomplished nothing more than to reveal her ignorance.
But let’s be real, the only people who agree with Streep are her fellow leftist/progressive/liberal/pseudo-socialist/pseudo-communist losers. The rest of us are confirmed in our rejection of this ideology that has utterly failed whenever and wherever it has been tried. Their hypocritical world-view with its condescending we-know-what's-good-for-you-better-than-you-do utopianism is what got them and their politics soundly defeated and denounced, repudiated and rejected.
Few, if any, of those who are part of the Hollyweird culture can be recognized for possessing much intelligence. Unless, of course, it’s for their rather impressive lack of any significant intelligence. Theirs, as we have seen proven time and again, is a very special kind of stupidity. And these folks would be much better served if they were to pay a bit more attention to that old adage that says, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”
