  • No One Elected Woke CEOs

    Woke corporate CEOs seem to think they know better than voters what’s best for the country. These titans are throwing their companies’ clout and cash behind activists pushing gender-fluidity lessons for kindergarteners and other extreme political causes. Expect this corporate activism to backfire. Corporations should be serving their customers, not trying to override the democratic process, like thousand-pound gorillas undoing what the electorate—including their own customers—wants. Walt Disney Co. CEO Bob Chapek declared his opposition Friday to a Florida state bill that bans instruction for children in grades K-3 about choosing their sexual orientation. The bill also bars teachers from...
  • Hollywood Celebrities Mostly Ignore Biden, Use State of the Union to Attack GOP

    President Joe Biden’s state of the union address on Tuesday was so unremarkable that even the Hollywood celebrities who campaigned for him had little to say. So they spent the hour attacking and snarking at Republicans instead, with one star even calling for physical violence against a sitting member of Congress. Stars including Mark Ruffalo, Bradley Whitford, Rosanna Arquette, and Oscars co-host Wanda Sykes stoked hatred toward the GOP while completely ignoring the president. Some even brought up former President Donald Trump, who was not mentioned once during the televised address. [cut]Comedian and newly appointed Oscars co-host Wanda Sykes advocated...

    U.S.—In a disastrous turn of affairs for the push to get more people vaccinated, rates have plummeted after Jennifer Aniston and other celebrities say they won't communicate or hang out with people who aren't vaccinated. Aniston has vowed to block and cease all communication with the unvaccinated, making a very strong case for never getting the vaccine. Many say they would rather die of COVID than hear from celebrities. "So, if I don't get vaccinated, I never have to hear from Jennifer Aniston ever again? Say no more!" said one man, exiting the line to get the vaccine in front...

    At a time when parents are waking up to the threat of critical race theory in schools, Hollywood is doubling down on it. In fact, they’re eating their own. Just read the primary criticism of the latest work of Lin-Manuel Miranda—a man who literally cast black and Hispanic actors as America’s founding fathers in Hamilton: the actors playing Dominican characters aren’t dark enough. After catering to a smaller and smaller group of coastal elites, La-La Land is finally collapsing into itself under the weight of the political left’s own contradictions. It’s not enough for the left to set the agenda....

    COLUMBUS, OH—In response to growing concerns over celebrity election meddling, several states have introduced voting machines with new technology that will immediately discard your ballot if it determines you are voting because a celebrity told you to. "We are extremely concerned about celebrity influence in this election," said Ohio Secretary of State Frank LaRose. "According to several authoritative studies, celebrities are literally the worst. We can't allow our future to be determined by celebrities or anyone insane enough to listen to them." Polls have shown that there are actually a few people out there who rely on celebrities like Mark...

    A Chicago-based charity has worked to free at least 20 defendants facing felony charges—including attempted terrorism and assault of a police officer—as an unprecedented crime wave rocks the city. The Chicago Community Bond Fund, which opposes cash bail and pretrial incarceration, has posted bond for the alleged felons, putting them back on the streets before their trials. The charity, like other community bond funds across the country, is now flush with cash, raising $3.5 million from 75,000 contributors in late May and early June. Bond funds together have taken in $90 million in the weeks following George Floyd’s death alone,...

    January 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – After Michelle Williams used her award acceptance speech to promote abortion at the Golden Globes on Sunday, a Catholic model in labor took the time to record an Instagram video challenging Williams’ statement that abortion was integral to her success as an actress. “I’m here getting ready to deliver my fifth baby,” said Leah Darrow, a former contestant on America’s Next Top Model, from her hospital bed. “And I want to let all you women know, all you young ladies who haven’t had babies or are maybe listening to what the culture says about birth,...

    A former teen model who alleges she was sexually assaulted by Harvey Weinstein filed a new lawsuit on Thursday against the disgraced movie mogul, his former studio and previous owner Walt Disney Co. Kaja Sokola, a native of Poland who was previously identified only as Jane Doe in an earlier class-action lawsuit, alleged in a new lawsuit filed with the New York State Supreme Court that in 2002, when she was 16 and an aspiring actress, Mr. Weinstein promised to take her to lunch to discuss her career. Instead, the lawsuit says, he took her to his SoHo apartment where...

    Star of the upcoming film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Daisy Ridley asserted that "everyone has an issue with Trump — every sane person anyway." Speaking with The Guardian in an interview published over the weekend, the English actress took aim at both President Trump and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. When asked if she finds it difficult to speak out about politics given that the Star Wars franchise is owned by family-friendly Disney, Ridley said, "No. I don’t feel I have to edit what I say — the things that make me angry are the things that make...

    Actor Chris Pratt on Wednesday apologized for posting a photo on Instagram of him posing at a gym with a single-use plastic water bottle in his hand after “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa called out his fellow Hollywood star. Pratt posted the Instagram photo on Tuesday as part of a collaboration with Amazon. This prompted Momoa to comment under “The Guardians of the Galaxy” star’s photo saying, “Bro i love you but wtf on the water bottle. no single use plastic. come on.” Pratt apologized in response saying, "Aquaman! You’re completely right. Dammit. I always carry my big gallon size reusable...

    Kids’ television shows aren’t what they used to be, an entertainment watchdog group says in a new report that notes a dramatic rise in violence and profanity in programs rated TV-PG. In TV programs sharing a comparable rating to Disney films, words such as “suck/blow,” “hell/damn” and “bitch” and voyeur-style violence are appearing increasingly, the Parents Television Council says in a study released Tuesday. The study compared 2017-2018 sweeps episodes rated TV-PG (appropriate for children with parental guidance) with similar programming from a decade earlier. It found that violence and foul language have crept into family programming without any resistance...

    Netflix continually shows an absolute lack of regard for basic decency when it comes to the content they offer subscribers. Perhaps the single greatest offender among Netflix’s offerings is ‘13 Reasons Why,’ their smash hit teen drama laced with suicide, rape, graphic sex scenes, and more. Everything you want your children to be inundated with all in one convenient television series, right? 13RW goes beyond typical sin-glorifying entertainment, however. Centered largely around the suicide of Hannah Baker, one of its main characters, the show has prompted copycat suicides. According to the American Family Association, a young woman, Anna Bright took...

    Hollywood celebrities are salivating over the House’s impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump and are using social media to spread a host of conspiracy theories involving the July 25 call between Trump and Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky. Anti-Trump stars including Alyssa Milano, Debra Messing, Patton Oswalt, Chelsea Handler, and Jon Cryer have recently tweeted unsubstantiated claims about the call and the subsequent transcript released by the White House. Milano has wildly extrapolated on allegations by a government “whistleblower” who claims that the White House is using a secret storage system to hold sensitive documents. The “whistleblower,” who had no firsthand...

    Democrats go to the movies twice as much as Republicans, a new study finds. The statistic was among many tidbits included in a seven-year survey celebrating the 1,000th movie surveyed by industry leader PostTrak, the exit-polling service founded by Rentrak (now owned by Comscore) and Screen Engine. During that time period, Democrats frequented the movies far more than Republicans, or 12.4 percent versus 5.5 percent. Ditto for Independents (7.2 percent). The same also held true for ticket buyers who identified themselves as liberal and conservative (10.1 percent vs. 5 percent). Nearly 10 percent of moviegoers didn't state their political affiliation....

    Don't be fooled by the Americans behind the camera. In today's Hollywood, there's one director -- and that's China. As important as U.S. audiences are, filmmakers know there's a bigger one. And they're willing to do anything they can to tap into it, even if it means becoming co-conspirators with one of the most evil censorship operations in the world. It's the biggest partnership no one knows about, and according to some experts, the most dangerous. The majority of Americans probably have no idea when they buy a ticket to the latest blockbuster that the film they're about to see...

    This week, the Met Gala took place in New York City. The event has always been a showpiece for celebrities seeking to make a splash, from Rihanna in her Pope costume to Katy Perry dressed as a chandelier. This year’s event was designed in homage to Susan Sontag’s 1964 essay “Notes on Camp.” According to Sontag, “camp” is the “love of the unnatural: of artifice and exaggeration.” In reality, camp according to Sontag is something else: a deliberate attempt to tear down boundaries. “Camp taste,” Sontag wrote, “turns its back on the good-bad axis of ordinary aesthetic judgment.” “[H]igh culture,”...

    Hollywood A-listers and power players melted down on social media Saturday after Judge Brett Kavanaugh officially became the 114th justice to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court. “Another gross day in the history of our country, but the midterms are coming. We are stronger than this bullshit. We can fight and fight and we may not see the results right away, but we will see them. Our daughters will see them. Don’t give up. Fight harder,” former Netflix host Chelsea Handler fumed on Twitter.
