Hollywood’s 2017 Pity Party officially began last night with the annual Golden Globes Award Show.
And the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award went to…Meryl Streep! Her acceptance speech was everything you could expect from a former Presidential Medal of Freedom winner, Kennedy Center Performing Arts Award winner and BFF to both Hillary AND Michelle:
After celebrating Hollywood’s diversity by running through a list of foreigners working there (legally, I assure you) she noted:
“So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners, and if we kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.”
No, indeed. Those would be things the Basket of Deplorables would watch. Along with NASCAR. Definitely not “the arts” or anything else the Hollywood brain trust would waste their time on. Butt after insulting President Elect Trump Meryl continued:
“when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose”
“Disrespect invites disrespect.”
“This brings me to the press. We need a principled press to hold power to account to call them on the carpet for every outrage.”
“So I only ask the famously well‑healed Hollywood Foreign Press and all of us in our community to join me in supporting the Committee to Protect Journalists because we are going to need them going forward and they’ll need us to safeguard the truth.”
Meryl hasn’t been as dramatic, or as wrong, since her 1989 fear-fueling “when are we going to stop killing our children!?”campaign against Alar. Celebrities should be “called to the carpet for every outrage” they perpetrate on the American people as well. In my humble opinion.
Hollywood, filled with rarified idiots, where anything and everything is likely to be on display except reality.
