Virtue Signaling Night on TV (2018, Part 1 of 86)

The Golden Globes Left-Wing Virtue Signaling Night, last night, as presented by hideous leftist Hollyweird hypocrites, succeeded in doing exactly what we expected: they unwittingly made idiots of themselves.

Favorite critique line:

I don’t know. Like anyone who lives for attention, the Hollywood set knows that your good thoughts don’t matter unless everyone in the world knows you’re thinking them.

RedState.com January 6, 2018, by Kira Davis

(If I may critique the critique: the term “good thoughts” is subjective. For example I have no illusions about the left-wing, rabidly anti-Trump meme “RESIST!”, as broadcast in last year’s hideous show, being a “good thought.”) …And what they apparently don’t know is (well, aside from much of anything), their virtue-signaling actually highlighted perversions and immorality endemic in their own extended Hollywood/Media/ Democratic/liberal/ Progressive/Socialist family. George Bush, Donald Trump, Karl Rove, nor even Steve Bannon created “the casting couch” (although I’m sure someone — possibly a contributor on “resist” central, MSNBC, although I doubt it will be Matt Lauer — will find a way to try to make it so).

So they were railing against — virtue-signalling against — themselves(!), even though (or perhaps because their profession is literally to pretend) they looked and sounded every bit like they were, as usual, railing against America (and make no mistake: that is their true passion).

And what they also don’t know is the fact that this idiotic virtue signaling has a rebound effect. It actually makes us think not how virtuous they are, but rather it reminds us of how ridiculous, deceptive, immoral, perverted and hypocritical — how unvirtuous — they in fact are.

But when repeatedly, glibly, virtue-signalling by just saying it from on high isn’t enough, there’s this: aside from the ubiquitous “Times Up” buttons (they also wore “Free Tibet” back in the day, and more recently, that charming “resist” meme), this “poverty is sexist” outfit was worn by some actor named Connie Britton, and of course the media lapped it up.  She stood out as particularly hideous (virtuous, to the media), not the least of which because the sweater looked like it was created by an eight-year-old. But also because it was just ugly.  

For still more hideosity, according to one report:

The sweater appears to be a product of Lingua Franca, which custom makes sweaters with activist-learning slogans stitched into them such as “I miss Barack,” “resist” and “The Future is Female.” The sweaters typically cost $380.

Betcha they’d refuse to craft one saying “MAGA” (and betcha if they did, they’d get away with it with lots of support from leftists). In other words, last night’s viewing was more left-wing hypocrisy piled up on top of Hollywood limousine liberal hypocrisy.

Imagine if they took a knee for something different

The media’s done it. Academia’s done it. Now what is apparently the newest group to come out of the closet and politically identify themselves as leftist is the NFL — its owners, its players, the league itself.

But here’s the point of my minimalist post today: it’s a li’l hypocrisy test. Let’s play! Imagine if the players were taking a knee for something different — for God, say — praying. This, instead of their idiotic, arguably racist, and definitely political (leftist) (though not-clearly-defined) cause, largely based on lies such as the “hands up don’t shoot” lie perpetrated by the leftist media and all other leftists. Imagine the gigantic clusterf of leftist indignation and outrage. Well that’s pretty much the game. Just imagine that.

Now let’s head off the argument the left will raise about this little game — which is that suddenly those on The Right would find the knee-taking totes cool if the players took a knee to pray instead. Wrong. The point is and always was that (1) it is simply normal decorum and an American custom (pretty much a global decorum and custom, actually) to stand up and respect the flag and the anthem when it is sung, and at least in America’s case, it’s for very good reasons (I’m not sure I’d stand for North Korea’s anthem, for example); (2) it is certainly an NFL custom — even if it’s not an official “rule” — to stand up and respect the flag and the anthem when it’s played; and (3) it is offencive to introduce crass and very questionable politics into what everybody expects to be a totally apolitical, leisure and entertainment activity. It’s not un-American or wrong or in any way offensive to the vast majority of normal Americans (or anyone else) to take a knee and pray, even during a game; but it would not be appropriate to do that during the national anthem.

The rules to being normal are really pretty simple.

NUTS: Some of This Week’s Tidbits

The week of Sept 11 at least thus far: ♦ This Globe and Mail comedy bit (it IS supposed to be comedy, right?) caused a “whoooboy THAT’S nuts” and an “oh yeah, that’s JUST what we need” — by me: I didn’t read it, because I already got enough comedy and dumb-assery from the Washington […]

ProudToBeCanadian.ca has been warned by what we’ll call “an Ad Company” that we’re in violation of a policy pertaining to lewd or pornographic content with regard to some content on our site — specifically one page or category of pages within our site. Seems unlikely, right? We’re unabashedly conservative. Not a lot of porn being […]

The Prager Conservative Concerto: Dennis Prager’s melodic steps to understanding left-wing, right-hating media

Dennis Prager, Conservative columnist, radio show host, and PragerU, um, Headmaster? Principle? — I’m trying to find a non-triggering word here since even “founder” might trigger something à la the Founding Fathers) — also happens to love classic music. He has frequently conducted orchestras as a guest conductor as a way to help build the […]

Unbalanced columnist lists Fox News as “far right,” the others as “balanced”

If I understand the Left (and the “far-left!”) correctly, anyone to the right of Maxine Waters is not merely “conservative,” “traditional,” “conventional,” or heaven forbid a “moderate,” no no no. You’re a fascist, and by golly, even if you’re black, you’re a “radical” “racist” “right-wing extremist,” a “white supremacist,” and parenthetically, a “Republican.” It’s hard […]

Liberal professor – on the left’s (beloved) violent anti-American thugs

This woke me up better than my coffee this morning. A good hit of truth, well-timed, does that to me. From an article which appeared at The Daily Caller, August 22, 2017, written by Nick Givas: …”Antifa is a radical, anti-America, anti-free market, communist, socialist, hard-left censorial organization that tries to stop speakers on campuses from […]

News media updates their fake news story on Trump-related immigration to Canada

This story gave me a smile this morning. The Supreme Court slaps the lower (liberal) courts and reinstates President Trump’s travel ban. Related news: The liberals’ mainstream media division’s past reporting (sorry “reporting” — so much smug, anti-Trump, fake news…) make the mainstream media look all the more idiotic today as they quietly go about […]

Peter Kent on Trudeau’s weird Chinacommielove

I’m not the state-owned CBC or CTV. I don’t act like a stenographer for (in my case) CPC talking points, the way “reporters” for the CBC and several citizen-owned media outlets do for their parties (Lib, NDP, Green, Gaia, or any combination thereof). And by the way, I’m also not a reporter in case you […]

Donald Trump may be a lot of things, but he’s not ineffectual

Quote of the week — by former Conservative government Finance Minister Joe Oliver, in the National Post this morning. He’s writing of how the current Liberal government is blowing our relationship with America, at a crucial time, by stupidly grandstanding largely to satisfy their own Liberal Party base. …Still, we [Canada] should do our share […]

Spot the bullCBC story at Yahoo Finance Canada

You’d be forgiven for thinking it was was the extreme leftist state-owned CBC web site. But no. It’s Yahoo. This kind of bullCBC does happen occasionally at regular free-market sites. I mean normal ones who haven’t given up the pretence of objectivity. It leaks out the odd time giving us the chance to see what […]

Who is Andres Sheer - cropped - 2017-06-01_075605

News of his election booted to page 30; now media asks, “Who is this Andrew Scheer guy?”

When the Conservatives elected Andrew Scheer as its new leader last weekend, the Vancouver Sun shoved the story onto page 13 — so insignificant they thought — or wanted you to think — that it was. They certainly weren’t interested in you learning the big news, or who Andrew Scheer was, to say the least. […]
