Elisabeth Moss – Scientology Cult Member
Donald Trump, much to his chagrin, never won an Emmy for The Apprentice, but he can now take indirect credit for a clutch of the awards. The Hulu series The Handmaid’s Tale won eight Emmys on
Sunday night, a sweep fueled, in part, by the widely accepted belief in liberal America that the show tells us something about the Trump era. Based on the 1985 novel by Margaret Atwood, the series depicts a misogynist dystopia. Christian fundamentalists have established a theocracy that — after an environmental debacle craters the birth rate — forces fertile women, called handmaids, into sexual slavery.
Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer reappeared last night, of all places, on stage at the annual Emmy Awards. All smiles at this gathering of television celebrities, the former chief spokesperson for Donald Trump performed a variety of self-deprecating antics and mocked his own preposterous appearances before the lectern in the White House briefing room. In essence, he turned in a good-natured homage to his caricature as portrayed by Melissa McCarthy on Saturday Night Live. Those who don’t share Spicer’s politics were not amused.
The Washington Post rounded up a herd of shaken liberal influencers who were horrified to see the Emmy Awards “normalize” a former White House press secretary.
Also… Total Irrelevance: Trump-Hating Emmys Hit All-Time Ratings Low
The 69h Primetime Emmy Awards hosted by liberal Late Show host Stephen Colbert aired Sunday, September 17th on CBS. Colbert’s displeasure with President Trump’s November victory was immediately apparent as his full seventeen-minute show opening was chock-full of slings and arrows flung at him and the anti-Trump hate-fest continued all night with several winners even addressing the president directly.
Self-proclaimed comedienne Chelsea Handler4had a pretty unfunny preview for her attempts at political comedy. At the end of the clip, she accuses Ben Carson and former Sheriff David Clarke of being “black white supremacists.”
Back in September of 2012, a low-budget horror film calledHouse at the End of the Street was released all across the nation on 3,083 screens. Because Jennifer Lawrence was the film’s star, because she had just broken through in a major way thanks toWinter’s Bone and X-Men: First Class, this low-budget horror film opened just shy of first place with a perfectly respectable $12.3 million.
As of today, that $12.3M is the lowest wide release opening of Lawrence’s career. However, with tomorrow’s wide release of mother!, Lawrence could break that ignoble record.
Singer Stevie Wonder kicked off Tuesday’s star studded Hand In Hand telethon to raise money for hurricane recovery by getting political. Wonder started the show by saying, “Anyone who believes that there’s no such thing as global warming must be blind or unintelligent.”
The one-minute video introduction starts by naming unarmed black men who were killed by police officers: Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and Jonathan Ferrell. Then, we hear audio clips of television personalities and protestors explaining the threats of white supremacy, privilege, and inequality.
Hollywood film director and feminist hero Joss Whedon is guilty of having “multiple affairs” with “his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends,” the Avengers director’s ex-wife claims.
In a heart-wrenching column published by The Wrap, Kai Cole — who separated from Whedon in 2012, and divorced him last year — says Whedon “deceived me for 15 years” and she like “everyone believed, that he was one of the good guys, committed to fighting for women’s rights, committed to our marriage, and to the women he worked with.”
Elisabeth Moss defends Scientology after fan compares it to Gilead
Moss was raised as a Scientologist but rarely talks about it in the media, saying recently the issue was “private, off limits”.
However, the actor and producer was prompted to speak out after after a fan named as @moelybanks asked her if working on the hit drama had made her “think twice about Scientology”.
“Both Gilead and Scientology both believe that all outside sources (aka news) are wrong or evil… it’s just very interesting,” @moelybanks wrote below an Instagram post about the second season of The Handmaid’s Tale.
This ditz is a Trump critic…
Christians find themselves a target yet again in the aftermath of hate speech and incited violence, this time in Charlottesville. Actress Whoopi Goldberg tweeted…
Much ink has been spilt over Lena Dunham’s recent crusade against two American Airlines workers she overheard discussing transgenderism. Some say Dunham’s alacrity to eavesdrop on her fellow man and turn him into the authorities (even nongovernmental authorities like American Airlines) mirrors the spirit of voluntary compliance citizens of East Germany once gave the secret police. Others have noted Dunham’s hypocrisy in urging respect for people’s views about sex while turning informant on two airline workers sharing their own opinions on sex in a private conversation, without even attempting address the workers personally.
Michael Moore and other celebrities like Rob Reiner and Rosie O’Donnell were quick to blame President Donald Trump for the violence that broke out Saturday in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“Trump’s America: The last days of White rule. It’s always a bitch to have to give up power you’ve held for 300 years,” the 63-year-old filmmaker tweeted after riots broke out in the city during a white nationalist rally
Our glitterati’s favorite socialist paradise has, like so many similar experiments, become a murderous den of oppression and privation.
Venezuela’s self-destruction has embarrassed more celebrities than has National Enquirer. Our glitterati’s favorite socialist paradise has, like so many similar experiments, become a murderous den of oppression and privation, and none will speak on its behalf. However, Venezuela’s collapse has dashed fantasies far older and more sincere than Sean Penn’s.
Comedian Chelsea Handler called for thought crime laws in America in a tweet Sunday night, after two Chinese tourists were arrested in Berlin, Germany, for throwing up the Nazi salute.
“2 Chinese guys were arrested in Berlin for making nazi salutes,” she tweeted. “Wouldn’t it be nice 2 have laws here for people who think racism is funny?”
