Moral Bankruptcy of ‘Progressive’ Celebrity Politics Displayed through ‘Oprah for President’ Push
“Golden Globes Ratchets Up Its Tightest Security Ever For 75th Ceremony,” Deadline observed Sunday. “The LAPD cleared close [to] a four-mile zone. Guests were subject to trunk checks and mirror ‘bomb’ checks underneath their vehicles… Inside the hotel: various internal security checkpoints, hotel guests were being scanned coming off the elevator into the lobby, as well as traversing to the pool side of the hotel.”
The overprivileged glitterati sure like plenty of “security” when it’s their own precious hindquarters on the line, especially when others are paying for it — including taxpayers “progressive” Hollywood demands to see disarmed. Then again, their main consistency of principle appears to be gluttonous self-gratification and promotion while oozing false virtue. That gives a special irony to celebrities embracing the #MeToo “movement”.
So when we see Meryl Streep decked out in her obligatory black #TimesUp evening gown, it’s fair to ask where she was in disapproving the likes of the odious Harvey Weinstein when she was embracing him instead? She didn’t see the value of throwing him under the bus until enough people started making noises about her conspicuous silence. Streep and her fellow “stars” really had “no idea” the guy was a perverted abuser? What excuse can they use for Roman Polanski?

Now Streep will never get to collaborate (appropriate word!) with Weinstein on “The Senator’s Wife,” a proposed anti-gun propaganda piece for which Harvey threatened he would make the NRA “wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.” But thanks to what happened at the Golden Globes, she found something else to say on camera that not only takes the focus off her own complicity and hypocrisy, but gives her and other play-actors something to rally around and send virtue signals over: the unfolding “Oprah Winfrey for President” crusade.
“She launched a rocket tonight. I want her to run for president,” Streep gushed after Winfrey put the bug in people’s ears during her lifetime achievement award acceptance speech. “I don’t think she had any intention [of declaring]. But now she doesn’t have a choice.”
And if there’s one thing Oprah shares with fellow celebrities (aside from an affinity for being with the abusers before she was against them) it’s disapproval of fans who can’t afford protective details yet have the gall to want to protect themselves.
“[W]e can uphold the Second Amendment and also reduce that violence that is robbing us of our children,” Winfrey declared while advocating for infringements. And to make sure “we” would have the votes, she called for “a clear path to citizenship for the 12 million undocumented immigrants who reside in this country.”
“Are assault weapons necessary? I just say, ‘Enough.’”
You get a vote and you get a vote and you get a vote!
Besides, all us SPLC-defined “haters” ain’t gonna to be around forever, something Oprah and her supporters evidently look forward to:
