Meryl Streep’s snake tongue

Before you read the rest of this post, please take this poll:

Human beings don’t flick their tongues out. Snakes do, like this garter snake:

I can honestly say I’ve never flicked my tongue out when I speak, not even to lick my lips, and I’ve done countless public speaking — as a professor lecturing in class, presenting papers at conferences, and as a lector at Mass. Nor have I ever seen anyone flick their tongue out when speaking.

The first time I noticed a public person doing what snakes do was Anita Dunn, Obama’s White House communications director from April through November 2009. While delivering a speech at a high school graduation, Dunn disconcertingly and repeatedly flicked out her tongue in lightning speed, just like a snake. Here’s a screenshot I took:

The next time I noticed a public person doing the snake-tongue thing was then secretary of state John Kerry speaking at a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on September 3, 2013, on Obama’s proposed war against Syria. Here’s a screenshot I took:

You can see the videos of Dunn and Kerry by going to “Why does John Kerry flick his tongue like a snake?

On January 8, 2017 at the Golden Globe Awards, actress Meryl Streep, 67, who endorsed Hillary Clinton for the presidency at the 2016 Democratic National Convention, used the occasion of her award acceptance speech to trash then President-Elect Donald Trump.

During her speech of nearly 6 minutes, Streep repeatedly flicked out her tongue, which you can see for yourself in the video below, at the 0:18, 2:56, 3:15, 3:50 and 4:49 marks. (I recommend that you slow down the video by clicking the wheel icon in the bottom right of the video. I also muted the sound because I don’t want to subject myself to Streep’s voice.)

Here are screenshots I took from the video:

After staring at her thin-lipped mouth to catch her tongue-flicking, I’ve now developed an intense revulsion to Meryl Streep’s mouth. Yuck.

She is altogether a deeply unattractive woman. Notice how preternaturally thick her neck is. There’s a reason why she wore the deep-V neckline gown.

Reportedly, Streep moved many of the Hollyweirdos in the audience to tears. This woman in the audience (a model named Chrissy Teigen) actually stuck her tongue out (4:05 mark):

From their facial expressions, Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn did not find Streep moving, LOL (5:10 mark):

During her trial in 2013 for the murder of her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander, convicted killer Jodi Arias repeatedly stuck her tongue out. Alexander died from 27 to 29 stab wounds, slit throat, and a gunshot to his head.

FOTM reader Lana pointed me to a very disturbing video from which I made a GIF of the late “Charismatic” Evangelical pastor Kenneth Hagin flicking his tongue. Hagin is said to be the mentor of pastor Kenneth Copeland. Here’s the GIF:

  2. Very interesting. Snakes stick out their tongues to smell, but I have no idea why these evil people are doing it.
    You mentioned Dunn, she gave me the creeps and when she stood there and touted how much of a Mao admirer she was, it didn’t take long to put her on the back burner. Same for when Johnson exposed his being a full blown Communist.
    Funny, these are all creepy people.

  3. You would think this practice would have a drying effect.

    Tongue flicking is grotesque. When paired with a wink, it’s especially malevolent. We’ve all seen that photo of Obama sticking his tongue out and winking…

    Mockery by sticking out the tongue is mentioned in the Bible:

    ISAIAH 57:3-5: “But come here, you sons of a sorceress, Offspring of an adulterer and a prostitute. 4″Against whom do you jest? Against whom do you open wide your mouth And stick out your tongue? Are you not children of rebellion, Offspring of deceit, 5Who inflame yourselves among the oaks, Under every luxuriant tree, Who slaughter the children in the ravines, Under the clefts of the crags?…”

  4. There is a condition known as tardive dyskinesia which may occur as an unwanted side effect of taking antipsychotic medications. My mother was a psychiatric nurse who worked at the state mental hospital for quite a few years. I had volunteered at Christmas parties and other functions there and have seen patients with this condition quite frequently. It is not limited to flicking of the tongue. Sometimes the tongue may protrude onto the lower lip. It can also manifest in various ways that people commonly call “tics.” I’m not sure how to post a link but Web MD and other similar sites have a lot of info on it. It’s difficult to say for certain without knowing their medical history but it was the first thought that occurred to me.

    • I can see it as a ‘side affect’ indeed. However I also see something which makes a void of of one thing to bring out something else. If it is already there perhaps it is no longer so hidden or perhaps a hole/void for something else to enter is what I mean here.

      One of my jobs was to observe closely behavior after a patient would consume a new prescription. It was very eye opening for me. For one patient who I knew very well, their character, their normal one that is, it was my observation and telling them the prescription was altering them in ways which were contrary to their normal character. They also caught it themselves when something and a different voice came out of them, startling them. They were christian and knew very well many things to watch for. Their Doctor was notified and the prescription no longer administered.

      • DR Eowyn . . . I for one think you are on to something. Let’s face it Hollywood woman wish to come across as ultra feminine, sexy, the whole ball of wax . . . but how sexy is it to see someone sticking out their tongue when they talk???? At best we have to charge it off to some sort of psychological mishap, and I suppose at worst, it must be considered a mannerism of demonic possession. In any case, it is not what a healthy, normal woman (or man) would be doing. It is also interesting that so many of those who have this trait, due to their political bend would be considered to be in Satan’s camp. I do not find it out of the ordinary to any degree that you have brought up this trait and made the association to demonic possession. I think that you are right on!

      • I was going to mention the verse In Isaiah 57:35, but a post before mine has already mentioned it. My husband, before retirement, spent most of his medical provider profession, as an adjunct professor for the University of Arkansas ( Registered Nurse Practitioner Program) and as a Public Health Speaker. He has never stuck his tongue out, during his 35 years of professional speaking and also in patient education. Also, with Tardive Dyskinesia, the tongue is usually protruded (uncontrolled) with facial grimaces and sometimes with random vocal sounds. Meryl Streep lacks such symptoms, as does Miley Cyrus, John Kerry, and some of the other “snake-like” celebrities. There seems to be a reluctance, even within the medical profession, to sidestep the topic of “evil possession/demonic control” . It is also mentioned in the Bible about demonic spirits walking to and fro looking for those to inhabit. I will look the verses up later on today. When the serpent (snake) is mentioned in the Bible, it always represents evil, deception and Hell. Also, Bill Clinton has a habit of bottom lip biting, and it could be, he is trying to keep his lying tongue from popping out. Leeann

  7. Isaiah 57:3-5World English Bible (WEB)

    3 “But draw near here, you sons of a sorceress,
    you offspring[a] of adulterers and prostitutes.
    4 Whom do you mock?
    Against whom do you make a wide mouth,
    and stick out your tongue?
    Aren’t you children of disobedience,
    and offspring[b] of falsehood,
    5 you who inflame yourselves among the oaks,
    under every green tree;
    who kill the children in the valleys,
    under the clefts of the rocks?

  8. Do I ever agree, Streep has been unattractive since she played in the ‘Deer Hunter.’. Why go to see a movie if she is in it.. Unfortunately, she also has an uncanny resemblance to a liberal fellow parishoner. I would never defend these morons if the jihadists attacked, they would have brought it upon us.

  11. A FEW YEARS AGO, THERE WERE A COUPLE OF VIDEOS GOING AROUND, SHOWING SOME PRETTY DISTURBING TONGUE FLICKING THAT WAS CAUGHT ON CAMERA. ONE OF THEM SHOWED A COUPLE OF MEN, REPORTERS ON A LIVE TELEVISION NEWSCAST, WHO DIDN’T SEEM TO GET ALONG VERY WELL. ONE OF THEM STARTED WITH THE TONGUE FLICKING, AND THEN HE HISSED AT THE OTHER GUY JUST AS BIG AS YOU PLEASE. HE ACTED AND SOUNDED LIKE A BIG OLD SNAKE.

    THE OTHER VIDEO, I BELIEVE, WAS OF A POLITICIAN BEING INTERVIEWED, AND A MAN THAT WAS STANDING NEAR HIM WAS FLICKING HIS TONGUE SO CONSPICUOUSLY, IT WAS LIKE HE WANTED TO EAT HIM. WHEN ASKED LATER ABOUT HIS ODD BEHAVIOR, THE TONGUE FLICKER STATED THAT HIS BACK WAS KILLING HIM AT THE TIME. HUH? BACK PAIN DOESN’T CAUSE SUCH WEIRDNESS.

    DOES ANYONE ELSE REMEMBER SEEING THESE?

  14. I noticed the tongue-flicking phenomenon in a woman who was a friend of my first wife, 30 years ago. Even then – well before what I know now about demonic possession – it struck me as a sign of evil. Yes, there are other explanations for it, such as a ‘tic’. but what afflicts Miss Streep is the thing about which the Bible warns us

  16. Well, there are two possible answers: Either this is demonic possession or some sort of demonic activity, or it is a psychosexual regression. Well, I am heartened that Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn held their ground and were appropriately grossed out.
    SERIOUSLY: Leftists are PSYCHIATRICALLY DERANGED, and I see what these tongue-flickers are doing: They are living out the tertiary stage of Nietzsche’s syphilis: They are RANK IMBECILES!

    We know from John 13:27 that demonic entities can enter people. On page 198 of his book The Biggest Secret, David Icke has several illustrations of what people claim to be able to see, reptilian looking creatures overshadowing and attaching themselves to world leaders “in politics, banking, business, the military and so on” (Icke).

    • Speaking of David Icke
      http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sumer_anunnaki/reptiles/reptiles14.htm

      MacLean had three original models of the human brain…
      The reptilian brain, the oldest of the three, controls the body’s vital functions such as heart rate, breathing, body temperature and balance. Our reptilian brain includes the main structures found in a reptile’s brain: the brainstem and the cerebellum. The reptilian brain is reliable but tends to be somewhat rigid and compulsive.

      It would appear David Icke is not so far out there after all. This may be a very ‘base’ part and we see it coming out more often. If so I would consider this absolute ‘regressive’….

      I’ am not a neuroscientist or anything of the kind and can only seek through what others have come forward to tell as well as bible and history/ancient.

  20. Whenever I see someone sticking out their tongue like that, It reminds of a homeopathic remedy called Lachesis, taken from the Bushmaster snake. The description of the remedy says among other things:
    “Thinks she is somebody else, and in the hands of a stronger power. She thinks she is under superhuman control. She is compelled to do things by spirits. She hears a command, partly in her dream, that she must carry out. Sometimes it takes the form of voices in which she is commanded to steal, to murder, or to confess things she never did. Taking up the image of the tongue of the Bushmaster snake, we can learn some of the key characteristics in the remedy. Not only do they use their speech as a means to try to discharge their own pent-up energy, but like the snake’s tongue, they can use their speech as a sudden attack, lashing out with cutting remarks. The Lachesis personality seems to have an instinct for sensing another’s weakness, and strikes out with intent to seriously wound. In fact, as the physical pathology of the remedy progresses, one of the characteristic symptoms is for the tongue to tremble when it is protruding
    They are spiteful, sarcastic, sardonic, scathing, satirical, slanderous, sceptical, superstitious, sanctimonious, self-righteous, suspicious, secretive, sultry, sexual and seductive and we may justly add, cynical and psychic.
    Also, they can’t stand anything tight around their necks.

  21. Well…I don’t care what is “wrong” w/these people who flick their tongues …but the bottom line is…it’s just GROSS/put-offish. My husband is a Ph.D. psychologist who’s evaluated prisoners in both State/Federal institutions, persons through private practice, rehabilitation facilities, private-religiously-funded psy & aging centers & so on &, so don’t think I haven’t heard so much “crap” through the many yrs I wish I’d NEVER known or heard of….

    IMO–easiest answer is always best–(Ockum’s Razor , sp? or whatever)….. People who don’t believe what they are saying in public, aloud—or at least whom have doubts abt their standing w/peers in a larger group due to their statements…w/thousands of people looking at them….are so nervous that their mouths turns to cotton..& they have to continually lick their lips…BIG TIME…tongue out/wagging (Euweeee!!!) like Streep had to do….

    When Obama was POTUS/telling lies through his teeth, he used to “whistle” through his front teeth when he talked. Could always tell he was afraid he’d be caught in the lie…..annoying as hell. But, when he thought he’d NEVER be caught, he’d affect the deep Southern drawl of a culture in which he’d NEVER EVEN BEEN exposed to…let alone grown up in……He’d wag his head, & do the deep South Pastoral pauses…like a MLK speech…He was sooooo transparent in motive through his affect that he was a special kind of study in public posturing being able to reveal motive or background.

    So, I’m going with—the tongue-flickers are basically aware that what they are about to say/are saying is a load of offensive crap to many….but, they are going to say it anyway….and it makes them nervous as hell. So nervous that they have to hydrate their lips /mouth via deep tongue, offensive licking. This all really hurts me to describe all this b/c it’s an offensive, disgusting visual …..EUWEEE.

    I admit…there are exceptions…..where this tongue licking/wagging is a “tic” in all probablility….like Buckley…..(who did it all the time as a matter of his personality/presentation—whereas, for instance, Streep does NOT) but that does NOT make other “normal dry mouth” human responses invalid.
