“Terrorsploitation”

How leftist critics consistently slam the films that portray our enemies truthfully

Scrolling the other day through Netflix’s mostly unimpressive offerings, I noticed something entitled London Has Fallen, a thriller about a terrorist attack on the British capital. I hadn’t heard of it before. I looked it up on Wikipedia. Released in early March 2016, it’s a sequel to Olympus Has Fallen (2013), which is about an assault on the White House.

The A.V. Club, according to Wikipedia, picked London Has Fallen as its “worst movie of the year.” Variety called it “terrorsploitation” and “reactionary fear-mongering.” I had the sneaking feeling that it would be just my cup of tea.

I was right.

New York sues Weinstein Co., Harvey Weinstein over sexual misconduct

NEW YORK (Reuters) – New York’s attorney general sued the Weinstein Company and Harvey Weinstein on Sunday alleging years of sexual harassment and misconduct by the movie producer, in a move that could jeopardize talks on a potential sale of the studio.

Weinstein, co-founder of the Miramax studio, was one of Hollywood’s most influential men before more than 70 women accused him of sexual misconduct, including rape. He denies having non-consensual sex with anyone, and his lawyer said many of the latest allegations would turn out to be unmerited.

The civil suit alleges that the company’s executives and board repeatedly failed to protect employees from Weinstein, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a statement. The suit also names Weinstein’s brother Bob, who co-founded the company.

Quentin Tarantino’s shocking interview defending Roman Polanski for raping 13-year-old girl ‘who was down to party’

A 15-year-old interview in which Quentin Tarantino passionately defends Roman Polanski has resurfaced amid controversy over Uma Thurman’s near-fatal crash while filming Kill Bill.

The actress spoke about the car crash in an interview with the New York Times last week, in which she also alleged she was sexually assaulted by disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein.

Responding to the piece, Tarantino said the stunt was the ‘biggest regret of his life.’

Now, audio from a Howard Stern interview with the director in 2003 – in which he spends more than eight minutes defending Polanski – is going viral.

In Hollywood, Tweeting, Wearing Black, And Having Acne Are All Considered ‘Brave’

Kendall Jenner tweeting about acne is not ‘brave.’ Neither is wearing a black dress. Bravery is when an Iranian woman protests being forced to wear a hijab.

Hollywood’s virtue signaling and political posturing reached an all-time high this week. First, at the 2018 Golden Globes, actors and actresses patted themselves on the back for standing up against a movement triggered by the very problems they enabled. Sounding about as authentic as a sitcom applause soundtrack, the media sat there cheering them on, spending much of the week toasting celebrities for their fake bravery.

The post-Weinstein Golden Globes was an exercise in hypocrisy

And the award for ultimate hypocrisy goes to . . . the Hollywood class of 2018.

This year’s Golden Globes were meant to be a defiant, vibrant celebration of a post-Weinstein industry, an awards ceremony about so much more than meaningless awards. We were promised a reckoning, the leveling of a male-dominated industry that institutionalized the rape, abuse and harassment of women for decades.

The ‘Time’s Up’ Campaign Is Mostly Repackaged Feminist Garbage

A new spin-off from the #MeToo Movement, which brought awareness to sexual harassment allegations in the workplace, reveals once again how feminism today isn’t pro-woman or pro-justice; it’s anti-man at the core and seeks power, not equality under the law.

The “Time’s Up” campaign was created by Hollywood actresses who want to expand their fight against “systemic sexual harassment” in the entertainment industry to “blue-collar workplaces nationwide.”

As the Iranian people rise up, Hollywood curls up

Americans got a tax cut. The economy is booming. Hispanic and African-American unemployment rates are at historic lows. The ISIS “caliphate” is destroyed. In the United States, MS-13 gang members are now afraid for their future, while American citizens finally have a sense their future is back.

All of this was enough to throw actress Alyssa Milano into the fetal position. Her horror continued, as she complained that her feet were cold.

On Dec. 30, Ms. Milano, the actress and shampoo spokes-model, distress-tweeted: “Just made the mistake of reading all of @RealDonaldTrump’s tweets from the last few days. I’m now curled up in the fetal position with an [sic] Cinderella tiara on my head. Also, my feet are cold. So very cold.”

What was President Trump saying, exactly, that reduced Ms. Milano to an infantile state?
