    The New York Times ^ | October 16, 2017 | Robert D. McFadden
    Roy Dotrice, a British stage, film and television actor who began performing as a prisoner of war in Germany and worked in Britain and America for six decades, notably in one-man shows portraying Abe Lincoln, the diarist John Aubrey and other historical figures, died on Monday at his home in London. He was 94... While he kept a home in London, Mr. Dotrice lived in Los Angeles and worked mostly in the United States after 1980. He appeared in New York stage productions of Ibsen’s “An Enemy of the People” (1985) and Harold Pinter’s “The Homecoming” (1991). On film, he...

    Pop Culture, Commercials, and White Guys by Dystopic | Oct 14, 2017 | Culture War, SJWs | 12 comments It isn’t difficult to find people complaining about how “people of color” are treated in America today. Turn on the TV, and you’ll see highly-paid NFL players lamenting this. White liberals are constantly bashing “whiteness”, and attending lectures and classes wherein white people are variously termed devils, demons, oppressors, or some other thing. It is the same for men in general, as opposed to women. Whites, and white men in particular, are generally seen as squares. They can’t dance, can’t sing,...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 13, 2017 | Daniel Chaitin
    Hillary Clinton appeared to be dupped into saying "vote for Hillary in 2020" during an interview Friday on BBC One. The failed 2016 presidential candidate made an appearance on "The One Show" and was speaking to hosts Alex Jones and Amol Rajan about her election memoir What Happened. At one point during the interview, Jones — not Alex Jones of Infowars — had Clinton repeat after her in another language. After doing so, Jones revealed Clinton had said "vote for Hillary in 2020" in Welsh. After bursting out into laughter and giving Jones a high-five, Clinton said, "Oh, I plead...

    As the sun rose this Friday morning in October 2017, Fox & Friends was interviewing author Ed Klein on failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her relationship with husband Bill. Klein — whose first book on the Clintons was so awful it made the New York Post’s John Podhoretz want to “drive stakes through [his] eyes so [he] wouldn’t have to suffer through another word” — discussed his latest report that Bill hated Hillary’s post-election book “What Happened”.Klein detailed the Clintons’ disagreements during the presidential campaign, including reports that Bill wanted Hillary to spend time in Rust Belt states,...

    Late-night-host Seth Meyers followed in Eminem’s footsteps Wednesday night, giving his viewers an ultimatum to choose him or President Trump. “I was inspired by that, so tonight I say to any fans of this show who are also big fans of Donald Trump, it’s time to make a decision guys, get off the fence,” Meyers joked. “Do you support him? Or do you support this show, that constantly mocks and denigrates anything about him? I know it’s a tough call, but the time has come to make a decision.” Eminem, in a viral rap slamming the president, told his fans...
  • Jimmy Kimmel is the perfect avatar for the clueless, emotion-driven liberal

    10/06/2017 8:20:44 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 22 replies
    Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel is a genuinely funny guy, and was until recently a funny and a likeable guy — which explains a lot of his success. But he has recently forayed into politics and more importantly, national policy on some major issues — things that don’t easily lend themselves to humor, proven by even his lack of humor monologuing on those issues. They’re issues that are easy to skim the surface on and get badly wrong. This, Kimmel has done. This turn toward Democratic shill — seriously, using direct talking points from Senate Democratic Minority Leader Chuck Schumer...
  • Only Fools and Horses Actor Lennard Pearce 'Had the Chance to Kill Hitler'

    His Only Fools and Horses character might have tried to avoid the war, but in real life actor Lennard Pearce once came face to face with Adolf Hitler, according to his co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst. Lyndhurst, who played dim Rodney in the classic BBC sitcom, has said that his on-screen grandad met the German dictator before the war, and later regretted not taking the opportunity to kill him. “He was a young actor touring Europe and they were playing some German city and the Nazis walked in," Lyndhurst said. "The top honchos of the Nazi party had seen the play and...

    Hillary Clinton hit up ‘The Tonight Show’ for the first time since losing the 2016 presidential election and she had choice words for Donald Trump. She called out his ‘incompetent’ leadership skills & we’ve got more of her disses. Well this was bittersweet. Hillary Clinton, 69, returned to The Tonight Show for the first time in over a year on Oct. 4. She got a hero’s welcome from the audience, who have her a long standing ovation. The pantsuit loving former Democratic presidential nominee was there to chat up her book What Happened and sadly we all know Donald Trump,...

    Vox ^ | October 3, 2017 | Constance Grady
    One of the recurring ideas of Ta-Nehisi Coates’s new book, We Were Eight Years in Power, is that he hates being asked to offer white people hope of a better future in which America might become a post-racial utopia. But when Coates appeared on The Late Show Monday night, Stephen Colbert asked him to offer that hope — and appeared to be almost offended when Coates refused. In his book, Coates writes that he hates being asked to talk about a future he doesn’t believe in, and he simply does not believe that America is going to “get over” racism....

    Is there a method to President Donald Trump's “madness,” as many of his most ardent supporters have stated from the beginning? Most recent case in point: Trump said NFL ratings are down and continue to slide, because of growing fan displeasure with national anthem protests: (TWEET-AT-LINK) Meanwhile, liberal media outlets and others, including Vox, have blamed the ratings slide on everything but the protests. Just one problem. As CNN anchor John King reported Sunday, team owners are now in possession of data backing Trump's claim — at least to a substantial degree: "NFL owners so far siding with their players...

    Whether you like it or not, the Colin Kaepernick kneeling movement isn’t stopping anytime soon. Shonda Rhimes posted a photo of her, Ellen Pompeo, Jesse Williams and other members of the Grey’s Anatomy cast taking a knee while filming their 300th episode. The photo included the caption “…and we took a knee in solidarity of racial justice” to support the long list of NFL teams that have been doing the same over the weekend. The Oakland Raiders, Dallas Cowboys, and a long list of other teams have been making headlines for taking a knee, linking arms or doing both prior...

    The Women’s Media Summit, a group of more than 100 leaders from various industries, has issued a white paper outlining a plan of action for “eliminating gender inequity in U.S. entertainment media.” One of its strategies is to “boycott films that score poorly on gender equity.” “Women hold only 3% of above-the-line and greenlighting positions in the media industry and are vastly underrepresented as protagonists and lead characters in film and television,” according to the white paper (read it here). In film, “Women hold only 17% of influential positions behind-the-scenes as directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors, and cinematographers. This...

    Ellen DeGeneres told Megyn Kelly during her show Wednesday that she wouldn’t have President Donald Trump on because he’s “dangerous to the country” and “the world.” “I just, you know, he is who he is, and he has enough attention, and he has his Twitter account, and he has ways to get his message across,” the 59-year-old host of “The Ellen DeGerenes Show” explained. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) “There’s nothing that I am going to say to him that is going to change him, and I don’t want to give him a platform because it just validates him,” she added. “And for me...
  • Dirty Little Emmy Secret: Trump Supporters Much More Racially Diverse Than Lily-White Television

    Breitbart ^ | September 20, 2017 | John Nolte
    According to the latest census figures, white people make up 61.3 percent of the American population. Rounding out those numbers, Hispanics (17.8 percent), blacks (13.3 percent), and Asians (5.7 percent), fill in most of the rest of our glorious melting pot. And yet… The oh-so progressive left-wing television industry, the very same television industry that spent almost every minute of Sunday’s disastrously low-watched Emmy Award Show smugly blasting away at Trump and his supporters as unrepentant racists, looks nothing like America. Not even close. In fact, the broad coalition of Trump’s “racist” supporters is much more racially diverse than the...

    This morning Ed wrote about the anticipated (and delivered) crash and burn of the ratings for last night’s Emmys. I suppose I contributed to that in a small way since I was watching football. In my Twitter feed, I only saw two of the conservatives I follow commenting on the show so that seemed to be a fairly common practice among our tribe. The initial scoring put them in position to be one of the worst rated Emmys outings of the modern era. This led a few timid voices to meekly suggest this morning that just perhaps the show needs...
