In a shameless, feel-good orgy of smug superiority, the faux-people of Hollywood utilized the occasion of honoring themselves to ejaculate anti-Trump rhetoric into the ether Sunday night. Predictably, attendees wallowed in their own lamentable, pathetic, hypocritical, despicable display of lusty ignorance, cheering louder for each ensuing orgasmic slight. To whit:
Jimmy Fallon kicked off the night by comparing Donald Trump to HBO’s Game of Thrones villain King Joffrey: “Game of Thrones is nominated tonight—how great is that? The show has so many plot twists and chalky moments, a lot of people have wondered what it would’ve been like if King Joffrey had lived. Well, in 12 days, we’re gonna find out.” For those of you who don’t watch the show, Joffrey is a bastard son, sexual sadist, murderer, and purveyor of infanticide who kills for the sheer fun of it. He rips the tongue out of one characters mouth and makes a daughter look at the severed head of her father, among other niceties.
Can you grasp the truly insane hypocrisy here? These Hollywood hucksters are honoring a show that continually exhibits the most violent and vile acts imaginable, mass murder, infanticide, and incest, etc., but are using that same occasion to make a holier-than-thou political statement blasting a guy who was inadvertently caught on tape perhaps using the “p-word” inappropriately when talking to another man in private. Fallon went on to mock Trump for losing the popular vote and for his team’s difficulty in booking A-list talent to perform at his inauguration, saying, “Florence Foster Jenkins is nominated. She’s the world’s worst opera singer and yet even she turned down performing at the inauguration.”
What a class act! Demeaning another ‘performer’ in an attempt to humiliate the President-elect of the United States. The reason so many ‘A-list’ performers won’t be performing at the Trump inauguration is that your elitist crowd has threatened them with boycotts- or worse- ‘A-list’ asshole.
Fallon’s fellow drunk Hugh Laurie further excited the crowd by stating: "I suppose it's made more amazing by the fact that I'll be able to say I won this at the last ever Golden Globes. I don't mean to be gloomy, it's just that it has the words Hollywood, foreign and press in the title. I just don't know.… I also think, to some Republicans, even the word association is slightly sketchy." He then jokingly told the now writhing crowd that he was accepting the honor “on behalf of psychopathic billionaires everywhere.” Billionaire might be a pay-cut for many of the Hollywood stars, who traveled to this celebration of themselves in chauffeured elegance before being escorted down the red carpet while the paparazzi recorded their every move. And it would require more terms than ‘psychopathic’ to describe many of their psychoses.
Meryl Streep worked the crowd into a further frenzy by spouting: "And this instinct to humiliate when it's modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody's life because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing. Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. And when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose.”
Which was exactly what Meryl Streep was doing.
Can you imagine those speaking at the Golden Globe awards, or at any significant entertainment or mass-media venue saying the same things about Barack Obama or any Democrat? Can you imagine conservatives taking every public opportunity to do so? Impossible.
That is why, though I personally am pre-disposed not to like a Donald Trump because of his sometimes unnecessarily combative and unrefined personality, I am driven to defend him.
The incessant, unrelenting, truly unhinged attacks on Donald Trump by nearly every power-wielding group in the country piss off the justice and underdog lover in me. Those in the mainstream media, academia, government, et. al., leveraging their unquestioned, unchallenged bully-pulpit to continually engage in over-the-top rants against Trump while simultaneously branding him a bully and violence monger, make me reflexively want to engage them, and illustrate their hypocrisy. If you’ve seen many movies or watched much television lately, you’d know that the emperor has no clothes. (Come to think of it though, many of the Hollywood starlets on parade at the awards show weren’t wearing much in the way of clothing, either, apparently content to show off their own Golden Globes).
Hollywood stars, like their comrades in Big Media, Big Labor, and Big Academia, tend to exhibit herd mentality: following (what they believe to be) the majority for fear of being wrong, ostracized or ridiculed. The group mind, according to one definition, “is not a mere collection (or the sum) of the minds of all the individual members of a group. It is a mind of its own distinct from minds working on different levels: it’s working based on emotions, appeals, suggestions and slogans.” (Emphasis mine).
Persons exhibiting this behavior may no longer even be conscious of their acts. They are as if hypnotized. They are automatons.
The Hollywood types exhibit a particularly repulsive kind of mob behavior: attacking others (for, perhaps, “attacking” others) while they publicly stroke and flaunt their own moral superiority. In some respects, it’s a verbal version of the four young black’s assault of the helpless white youth in Chicago recently. Though they would never mention that vile act, because it doesn’t fit with their predetermined, politically-correct meme.
A herd mentality, cowardice, combined with a lack of character, integrity and free will…always leads to tyranny.
King Joffrey would know that.
