Celebrity awards shows/events in recent years have become entirely unwatchable thanks to their incredible politicization and the over-abundant narcissism of the attendees. With the Harvey Weinstein scandal unleashing the floodgates of Hollywood’s sexual abuse open secret, coupled with the industry’s vehement hatred of President Trump, it’s no surprise that this year’s Golden Globes was filled to the brim leftist politics.
The awards show was chock full of virtue-signaling and holier-than-thou preaching at the masses, and while that’s all well and good, the biggest highlight of the night was Oprah Winfrey’s win and subsequent speech. It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that the Left is acting like it’s a modern-day Gettysburg Address and a subtle declaration of presidential intent on behalf of Oprah. While one would expect leftists to be starry-eyed over the speech, the legendary television host received love from a surprising and much-maligned woman.
As reported at the New York Post, liberals aren’t the only ones on board with Oprah’s message, as Ivanka Trump heaped praise upon Oprah for her “empowering & inspiring” speech at Sunday night’s Golden Globe awards.
“Just saw @Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes,” President Trump’s oldest daughter tweeted on Monday night. “Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP! #United”
The speech has sparked speculation that Oprah is indeed seriously considering a run for president in 2020, as Trump’s win, despite his lack of political experience, has shown it’s more than possible.
Oprah’s speech hit upon her life and the struggle for civil and women’s rights, highlighting the recent deluge of sexual harassment claims against folks in the media industry.
Ivanka’s public tweet of support has been met with the predictable amount of leftist hatred one should expect these days. Folks immediately labeled her a hypocrite for not standing with the women who have accused her father of sexual improprieties (which is particularly amusing, considering these same leftists have turned a blind eye to the litany of women that have accused Bill Clinton over the years).
Actor Adam Pally said, “What about the 16 counts of sexual harassment and assault leveled against your dad. Oh and the access HOLLYWOOD tape, oh and how he’s openly stated he’s sexually attracted to you his daughter, what about that?“
Actress Alyssa Milano tweeted, “Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father’s accusers.”
Having their cake and eating it too is par for the course when it comes to the Left. It’s okay for them to ignore claims against their comrades or people they like, but when it comes to a conservative, well, their head must be on a spike because any accusation against them must be true.
Hollywood was well aware of Weinstein’s behavior, as well as most of the others that have been outed. But no one cared because it was a mutually beneficial relationship and was just the way of doing business. All of this came out only due to a perfect storm of circumstances that became too big to cover up, and the momentum has since been unstoppable.
Celebrities can virtue signal their self-proclaimed moral superiority all they want, but only a fool would buy into the garbage coming from the clowns in Hollywood, including the infamous and saintly Oprah.
