UPDATE II: Feminized Democrat Debate

Celebrity, Democrats, Elections, Feminism, Gender, Hillary Clinton

The Mouse, Bernie Sanders, scolds The Man, Hillary Clinton, for interrupting him. Mouse says, “Excuse me, I’m talking.” The country erupts in a debate that is deemed way more dignified than the Republican fisticuffs.

Not so. The Dems, two of them, are debating like girls; the Republicans are brawling like boys. That’s all.

And The Girls are fighting over whether Sanders is sexist or not. For example, The Daily Breast (not a typo) protests:

“Its Absurd For Hillary Supporters To Call Bernie Sanders Sexist.”

And it’s absurd for The Daily Breast to spill pixels over the absurdity of this absurd allegation. But The Daily Breast is absurd.

No longer do we even notice how feminized and fussy discourse has become. You need a special manual to make sense of this crap.

Speaking of fussy fools:

Meryl Creep’s True Colors

Celebrity, Film, Hollywood, Race

Meryl Creep offered a whimsical, wacky defense of her prerogative to belong to a group in which her own kind is “over-represented,” a defense the actress would never afford to other, less privileged lily white Americans:

Actress Meryl Streep is indisputably a Hollywood icon, but her recent remarks regarding the lack of racial diversity on the Berlin International Film Festival jury are unlikely to win her many new admirers. The three-time Oscar-winning actress defended the all-white panel on Thursday, allegedly telling reporters: “We are all Africans.”

The seven-member jury, on which Streep is serving, determines the winners of the prestigious Golden Bear and is one of the most celebrated of Europe’s film festivals. In the wake of the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, where the Academy Awards failed to nominate a single actor of color for the second year in a row, Streep was questioned by an Egyptian reporter about the racial make-up of her panel.

“This jury is evidence that at least women are included and in fact dominate this jury, and that’s an unusual situation in bodies of people who make decisions,” Streep said, according to the Associated Press. “So I think the Berlinale is ahead of the game.” The festival jury does include three women in addition to Streep: French photographer Brigitte Lacombe, Italian actress Alba Rohrwacher and Polish director Malgorzata Szumowska.

Let the Hollywood house divided devour itself. Or, “Encourage Affirmative OSCARS, So Hollywood Can Go Belly-Up.”

Where Are The Celebrities To Protest Idaho Rancher’s Death By Cop?

Celebrity, Justice, Law, Military, Morality, Private Property, Racism, The State

Nobody will march for the right to life of 62-year-old Idaho rancher Jack Yantis. Certainly not Hollywood director Quentin Tarantino.

Cop brutality is an endemic problem, but so is the immoral, meddlesome and mindless nature of celebrity in America. Do you suppose Tarantino, marching with Black Lives Matter or some proxy thereof, would protest the murder by cop, Sunday Nov. 1, of Mr. Yantis?

The Idaho rancher was shot dead by cops when he appeared on the scene of a car crash adjacent to his farm, involving one of his bulls. The cops were about to put the animal down. You know that the obedient (white) rural community of Adams County, Idaho, will accept the loss of one of theirs and move on.
