Golden Globaloney: Oprah & the Black-Wearing Avocado Toast Crowd

By Debbie Schlussel

stfu

So, I was a glutton for punishment and watched the over-the-top, uber-indignant, self-righteous-to-the-max Golden Globe awards telecast, last night. Or was it the Golden Goebbels? These morons actually think that forcing everyone to wear a particular color does something for the world. Watching the show is one of those moments that reinforces the basis for electing Donald Trump President.




Hollywood–and YES, all of the actresses in it–are involved in promoting wanton, easy sex, a culture of harassment, and the objectification of women to the point of no return. That is their product. All of them–from the #MeToo hacktresses to the ones a la Reese Witherspoon, who pretend to be promoting “women’s stories.” They all have participated in the sexualization and objectification of women. That’s been the output of Hollywood for decades. Now, they pretend that wearing Black makes them warriors of some sort. Nope, just phony social justice warriors who whine and are offended on behalf of nothing particularly good for America.

These “thou must wear black” Nazis have not an iota of a clue of what fighting for women means. They resent directors and producers telling them to spread their legs off-screen, while they demand “equal pay” for spreading their legs for every male (and female) character on-screen. Um, hypocrites much?

The real working women of America are out there busting their butts to make ObamaCare monthly payments they can’t afford. The real women of America are struggling to prevent their daughters and sons from sleeping around and getting pregnant after watching Hollywood’s romanticization of one-night stands and the slutty life. The real working women of America are struggling to pay for the entitlement-addicted underclass that Hollywood champions, in order to create a permanent dominant Democratic party re-election posse. Yes, those women face harassment in the workplace, too. But it’s the real thing. Not some women in fifty-thousand dollar dresses with a hair-and-makeup squad preaching to the world about Oprah for President and Harvey Weinstein for hell.

You actresses wanted to get into an industry that sells sex for profit. Now you complain that you are asked off-screen to provide the same tawdry free sex you glamorized on that screen. Nobody forced you to become an actress/former waitress. This was the industry you chose, the industry you knew had become the softcore porn industry. And you chose to become its sex workers. You chose to show the world your “golden globes” and now you whine about the logical results, on an awards show. Um, you can stop the self-congratulation. Have you ever watched the garbage movies and TV shows you make? We’ve had more than enough. Time for America to say your time is up with us, too (and we kind of have, with TV and movie viewership dwindling exponentially).

There were the pretentious women in Black. And then there were the pretentious Black women. And speaking of Oprah . . . you think Oprah as President (Lesident?) with her purse Stedman, would make it better for women? PUH-LEEZE. She loves illegal aliens. She hates Israel (the only place in the Middle East where women have full equal rights) and particularly loves extremist Muslims, whom–as I pointed out on this site over and over and over–she used her trashy daytime talk show to promote and propagandize for. And we all know how they treat women. As I always say, Oprah is my top choice for “Women We’d Like to See in a Burqa.” Under a President Oprah (G-d, that’s a scary phrase!), more women would be jobless and penniless. She loves ObamaCare and helped its namesake get elected. She loves big government and regulations (unless they apply to Harpo Studios and the OWN Network) and minimum wages that keep women out of the workplace, that keep Oprah’s ethnicity out of the workplace. You want that for your Presidency? Only if you’re a moron. Meanwhile, on Friday, a statistic came out that got almost no fanfare: Blacks have the lowest unemployment rate in America under President Trump that they have had since 1972. Yes, the lowest unemployment rate for Blacks in 45 years. Nearly a half century. This should be all over BET, not to mention Oprah’s OWN.


Who’s Your Daddy? For HOprah, It’s Harvey

By the way, Oprah getting a “Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award” for the trash she contributed to America, is just laughable. Cecil B. DeMille? Cecil B. DeMille! The guy is spinning in his grave. I guarantee it. DeMille was a masterful filmmaker, a craftsman in onscreen storytelling. Oprah is a woman who spent 25 years on America’s daytime TV having men cry on TV and otherwise humiliated. She’s a purveyor of an egomania vehicle “magazine” with her mug on the cover every month and suggestions to buy $500 cashmere Q-tips because they’re her favorite things. (Okay, I made up the cashmere Q-tips, but she recommends average Americans purchase similarly absurd and absurdly expensive luxuries.)

Watching these pretentious women in black reminded me of the left-wing anti-Israeli “Israeli” women who call themselves “Women In Black.” They dress in Black and harass Israeli soldiers at border checkpoints, enabling Palestinian terrorists with bomb vests on, to have an easier go at it. They pretend to be Jews and Israelis just as these women in Black of Hollywood pretend to be Americans and patriots. They are neither. And you know that if nobody were looking, Hollywood’s Women in Black would be harassing our military men just as their compatriot Women In Black do in Israel. Heck, this #MeToo Hollywood baloney has gone so far that Army General Ryan Gonsalves, at the end of December, was denied his third star promotion for calling a female Congressional staffer, “sweetheart.” The PC world has gone overboard.

I watched as “the smartest guy in the room” (when the room is a bathroom stall, and even then, he might not be the smartest) Seth Meyers told jokes that pretended to be against Hollywood harassers, but were mostly digs at Trump and Middle America that both elected him and made everyone in that awards room richer than their wildest dreams. These are elitists. They don’t care about women. They don’t care about doing the right thing. They care about nothing but themselves. We see that in the anti-American crap they put out on a regular basis. We were lectured about how America will soon become “The Handmaid’s Tale.” That was a dig at Trump and the Trump electorate. We also got that in Oprah’s vastly overrated self-aggrandizing speech. The fat Black Lady President-wannabe wears no clothing. No, Oprah, Sidney Poitier’s Oscar was NOT–NOT!–the same as refusing to sit in the back of the bus. Nor is your career, which was made off the backs of exploiting average Americans on a gazillion-dollar-making daytime TV talk show. No, that’s not civil rights. This is showbiz. That’s it. (And Oprah is no Sidney Poitier, who had class and grace.) I’d much rather have Trump in the White House than anyone these frauds want.

None of these Hollywood bims helped me or did a thing when I told the world how Sean Hannity blackballed me from FOX News for refusing to go to his hotel with him. Where were they then? Why isn’t it “Time’s Up” for them with that? ‘Cuz they don’t really mean it. It’s just jingoism and grandstanding for these Hollywood hags. Nothing more.

So, stop–STOP!–Hollywood chicklets. STOP pretending you are crusaders for civil rights of any kind. You are crusaders for your right to continue to eat $26 avocado toast and wear $400 emu butt-gland cream on your facial blemishes. That is all you are and all you are doing. You never helped a female farmer out in Missouri try to get her and her husband’s tractor started while they are fighting government protection of some obscure insect living in a rain-puddle amidst the crops.

It was beyond nauseating to watch NBC’s Today Show “journalists” butt-snorkeling these people, including Tenth-Grade drop-out Emma Stone, as if they’d found the cure for cancer and solved world hunger at the same time. Just sickening. Natalie Morales said some things to some celebrities that were so outrageous, so obsequious, that I can’t even remember them because they’re probably blocked out of my mind for sanity’s sake.

Also, I note the near-universal black-wearing that went on here. It’s emblematic of the group-think mob mentality of the Hollywood left. These elitists insist on wearing black, then you had better wear black. I had a glint of admiration for the three women who dared not go along and wore their own choices of color. One, however, Blanca Blanco, barely wore anything to speak of, unless you call that barely there burgundy velvet washcloth a dress–the usual selling of sex and the resulting sexual harassment that Hollywood exemplifies. She was, of course, excoriated all over social media, not because she wore a sleazy stripper outfit, but because she dared not to conform to the dictatorial, politically correct color mandate. The color black and “Time’s Up” pins worn at the Golden Goebbels remind me of all the AIDS and breast cancer and other sundry awareness ribbons and pins they used to wear at these awards shows back in the ’80s and ’90s. Some “fashions” should never make a comeback.

Last year’s movies up for and winning awards at this show were mostly a blur of boring, crappy social justice warrior films that will make as much difference in the world as “Time’s Up” and black dresses and pantsuits. As in, none.

Reader Skunky:

On the stoopid Golden Globes: I keep rolling my eyes at women wearing black for an industry they love to be in that focuses 100% on their bodies and how naked they are. The trend has only being increasing exponentially since the mid 80’s…which is why I stopped being a friggin’ feminist in the 90’s. Now they are gonna wear black because some hornbag men got caught going after the bodies they loved to show off? Oh brother, I have no interest in a grandstand like that except to point and laugh. Gimme a break. Ugh.

Right on.

DAUP, if you read Alfredo’s comments above, you’d grasp that he understands the word-play form of comedy that I spoke of and his lines were funny. In fact, if you truly understood what I’ve been talking about, you’d give him a standing ovulation.

As for your more generalized accusations of “racism” in Bugs Bunny cartoons, those too lack merit. Merely because the Bugs character makes fun of characters in the cartoons that happen to be black doesn’t make the cartoons racist. Before “politically correctness” began to infest out culture, it was fine to make fun of all races and cultures, as long as it was funny. Because comedy leveled the field, targets of the comedy were rarely offended.

Let’s take two examples of sequences from Bugs Bunny. In the first, we have Bugs taking on a black man. And sure, Bugs makes fun of the black man. But they also join forces briefly, when threatened by a common foe, as you’ll see. In the second example, Bugs takes on Elmer Fudd, a white middle-aged male. The comedy involved in each sequence is similar, and the types of gags used are universal. Neither sequence involves Bugs attacking his opponents because of their race. If you read that into the cartoons, that’s your own projections at work.

If I can let you in on a little secret about the comedy in each of the two examples, as well as cartoons generally, the common psychological theme has nothing to do with race. Rather, the common unconscious psychological theme of many a cartoon is the expression of an Inverse-Oedipal Complex. Expressed in simple terms, it means that the comic hero of cartoons is really a child character, that children viewers identify with. And the child-hero’s opponent is a deflated father figure. However, instead of the child seeking to kill the father, the cartoon father figure seeks to “kill” the son-child. (That’s the inverse or reverse part.) And the habitat that the child lives in is an expression of the mother–or mother-earth, as it were. In the end, the hero child deflates and defeats the father figure and continues possession of the mother (habitat).

I came up with this idea one summer afternoon when I was a camp counselor taking care of 10-year-olds. During rainy days, outdoor activities were cancelled and we’d often watch cartoons for hours on end. As I saw dozens of cartoons in a row, this psychological theme hit me and I thought I’d captured a unique insight into what the real meaning of cartoons was about. I later read a book called “Beyond Laughter,” written by an outstanding psychiatrist and psychoanalyst named Martin Grotjahn, that described this inverse-Oedipal complex concept in comedy. So, although I came up with the idea on my own, I wasn’t the first to theorize or write about it.

So, watch the two Bugs Bunny sequences below, the first featuring a black man as Bugs’ opponent and the second featuring a white man. Finally, I include a third clip featuring the late, great Don Rickles doing a roast of the legendary Sammy Davis, Jr., who I once had the pleasure of meeting in a camera store where he entertained everyone. Unfortunately, this kind of race-theme comedy is getting scarce. Political correctness has killed much comedy, and this is why Jerry Seinfeld won’t play in colleges anymore. Political correctness has become toxic to comedy.

Ahhhhhhh, Mr. Adamo, you mention names, Mr. Davis, Jr., and all the others you are familiar with, and my youth comes storming back to me. That was a different time, but The Cultural Pancake Flip set us on quite a different path, didn’t it?

I was a bit curious about the depictions in the Bugs Bunny cartoon which featured two blacks, and a watermelon eating, seed spitting moment. I never assigned overt racism, although The Cultural Pancake Flip was well underway.

The burgeoning sentiment that eventually became known as political correctness had already reared its ugly head, and affected me, no doubt. It’s why I spent ages 15-30 mired in the swill of liberalism.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 4, 2018 at 1:27 pm

I respect your opinion Mr. Ralph, you have given me a new angle to as I have not ever considered that it was merely a play on words, despite WB racist past, this may be innocent. May. Yes Don Rick, was great

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 5, 2018 at 9:30 pm

I’m going to find some links to support my argument and leave it there.

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 5, 2018 at 9:49 pm

You goofy followers. No mind of your own. You goofs boycott the NFL, while Trump throws a superbowl party. Ha ha ha. Dummies

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 6, 2018 at 12:23 am

    What the heck are you babbling about Disgusting. The Super Bowl was great. Pink did a good job on the National Anthem. The first half had trick plays. I missed the halftime show on purpose because I hate Timberlake. Finally the Eagles defense finally got to Brady causing him to get stripped and with Gronk not catching a Hail Mary pass. It was a good game that came down to the wire. It also proved that Brady is a sore loser. What made liberals heads explode is when SB MVP Foles thanked God for it all. Like I said what a game.

    Ken B on February 7, 2018 at 11:47 am

Man, if only I had a penny for every post that didn’t go up.

Not only that, but I have finally come to the conclusion that . . .

D(aytime)
A(t)
Y(ordanka’s)
P(lace) . . .

is mostly likely a teenager. So, I’m going to leave off, and probably leave off trolling this troll forever. It’s just not fair to bat a young person around like this. If he/she was in their 20’s or 30’s, . . .

If you ever want a real education in anything, you can probably get a good bit of what you need to know about life from this web site.

Read, read, and then read some more. You can’t keep up with the likes of Debbie, KenB, Mr. Adamo, etal. And there’s no sin in that.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on February 6, 2018 at 11:44 am

Oh. I figured you to be a mindless zombie pantomime, KenB, but you didn’t boycott.

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 7, 2018 at 1:36 pm

    Well as usual you figured el wrongo. But I did only watch my Cowboys play last year.

    Ken B on February 8, 2018 at 10:43 am

I’m glad to be wrong this round, then.

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 9, 2018 at 7:43 pm

    The Bugs Bunny cartoons themselves do not establish your assertion. Moreover, you fail to even notice the SOURCE for the false allegations of “racism”: Al Jazeera, which is a propaganda arm of the government and business interests of Qatar. And, as we all know, Qatar is the bastion of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and would never engage in hatred, right, DAUP? Try to learn a little by listening and reading more, and speaking and writing less.

And this is the reason I assume that maroon is meant as a racist insult. But your point is well made and is worthy of consideration and may be correct.

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 10, 2018 at 6:14 pm

Dummy wants a military parade? You goofs support this fool continually. Weeeee confetti weeeee, men/women walking. Weeeee.

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 10, 2018 at 11:54 pm

Not to mention the blandness of it all. It’s not like they goosestep or are choreographed so it wouldn’t impress other nations, they would fall asleep watching. Waste of money. End the wars then a parade

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 10, 2018 at 11:56 pm

Mr. Ralph, I considered you the smart one out of your motley bunch; KenB and Geraldo, but I was wrong. My point was made. Stop trying to “win” and just respect another’s point of view

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 12, 2018 at 2:41 pm

    Again, DAUP, try to learn a little by listening and reading more, and speaking and writing less.

    Ralph Adamo on February 13, 2018 at 1:40 am

Gun Control NOW, you NRA hacks. You fools

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 14, 2018 at 11:03 pm

    Yep Disgusting you guessed it. You’re still a hack maroon.

    Ken B on February 16, 2018 at 1:09 pm

KenB, you still choose to use that word. Typical, denial, refuse to do right.

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 16, 2018 at 10:03 pm

    Disgusting in that same vein you’re still a easily triggered hack who whines about a version of doing “right”. Delusional.

    Ken B on February 20, 2018 at 7:23 am

POW! Being jealous of the smarter Pres. Obama, trying to ‘erase’ him and it back-fired IN YO’ FACE!

DisgustedAtYouPeople on February 17, 2018 at 6:05 pm

    And in that “jealously” he’s dismantling the Obama Error’s legacy piece by piece. BADA BOOM!
