Paging the socialist-loving Hollyweird folk: LA entertainment workers living out of their cars

The Hollywood Reporter reports that many entertainment workers are living out of their cars due to worsening income inequality. According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, 15,748 Angelenos currently live in his or her vehicle. Those in the entertainment industry make up a small – yet visible – population of homeless people living in their cars.

From the Hollywood Reporter:

“Though LAHSA does not survey professions in its annual Homeless Count, community engagement manager Jonathan Hans says entertainment-industry types are a familiar group: “Especially within our younger population, it’s not necessarily uncommon that a group of young kids came out [to L.A.] because somebody told them that they would get them a record deal and then they ended up living out of their van,” he says. Many now-well-known industry figures — Tiffany Haddish, Chris Pratt, Drew Carey, Kelly Clarkson — have said they lived in their car before rising to fame.”

Read the whole story about the homeless entertainment workers here.

Last week, libtard Chrissy Teigen invited democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to a Grammy party. Chrissy tweeted: “@AOC hello my hero, do you wanna come over and watch the grammys with us? there will be pizza”

Other Hollyweird libtards got in on the Twitter thread.

From Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family: “She can have my portion!”

Ellen Show producer Andy Lasser: “I’ll make cookies.”

The executive producer of the Big Bang Theory Bill Prady tweeted, “I will drive and wait in the car.”

I have a question for the socialist-loving proggies: If you truly believe in the principles of socialism, then why aren’t you sharing a portion of your wealth with those needy people who work so hard to help make you rich?

FYI: The net worth of these individuals: Chrissy Teigen: $26 million. Jesse Tyler Ferguson: $20 million. Andy Lasser: $12 million. Bill Prady: $150 million.

Hey Hollyweird: If you are going to support a socialist, then put your money where your Twitter mouth is and meet the public needs and help end poverty amongst your fellow co-workers. After all, it’s a shame that so few of you working in the entertainment industry should benefit from individual profit.

Illinois demorats introduce bill requiring gun buyers to reveal social media accounts

Rep. Dan Didech

Who gets to define “troubling” comments?

From MyFoxChicago: Illinois Democrats are introducing a bill forcing gun buyers to reveal their public social media accounts to police before they are given permission to get a firearm license.

The new legislation is sponsored by two state Democratic lawmakers, in an effort to block people from acquiring guns if they have made some troubling comments on social media.

State Rep. Daniel Didech, a Democrat who’s pushing the bill, told CBS 2 Chicago: “A lot of people who are having mental health issues will often post on their social media pages that they’re about to hurt themselves or others,” adding that these people need “the help they need.”

The bill’s proponents point to Nikolas Cruz, the Parkland High School shooter, saying he posted “very disturbing” images on social media before going on a rampage and killing 17 people last year. Robert Bowers, the Pittsburgh Synagogue shooter, also posted numerous troubling comments about the Jewish people on social media.

A similar bill was introduced last year in New York that would require people looking to buy a gun in the state to submit their social media profiles and search history prior to purchase. The bill was met with criticism, but it was approved by the new Board of Legislators last month, though it remains unclear when the lawmakers will vote on it.

The proposal in Illinois facing similar criticism, with Rebecca Glenberg of ACLU saying the bill doesn’t address what the police could do with the data, in addition to the First Amendment concerns.

“A person’s political beliefs, a person’s religious beliefs, things that should not play a part in whether someone gets a FOID card,” Glenberg told the station.

The Illinois State Rifle Association, meanwhile, said that everyone should be outraged by the intrusiveness of the bill. “When people look at this everyone who has a Facebook account or email account or Twitter account will be incensed or should be,” Richard Pearson said.

But Didech defended his measure to the station, saying his bill “gives Illinois State Police additional tools to make sure that dangerous weapons aren’t getting into the hands of dangerous people,” noting that his measure is also less intrusive than the one proposed in New York.

Left eat left: Libtard TV hostess accused of cultural appropriation because she wore cornrows

Photo from Instagram

The poor womyn won’t be able to laugh this off. That’s because she’s lost her ability to laugh due to President Trump.

From Yahoo: Padma Lakshmi‘s hairstyle selection for Thursday’s episode of Top Chef isn’t winning rave reviews.

The episode, shot last June, took place at the University of Kentucky’s basketball arena in Lexington. For it Lakshmi opted to wear cornrows, and she was called out on Twitter for cultural appropriation.

“Why did they make Padma get braids for an episode that references basketball?” someone asked. Another person suggested that the TV personality’s hairstylist has a “vendetta against her” for the look.

Some tied her hairstyle to the larger national conversation about race right now after the scandal involving Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam. One person wrote, “Padma Lakshmi in cornrows and a wifebeater at a BASKETBALL ARENA challenge. Is she planning on running for Virginia governor in the future?”

This isn’t the first time Lakshmi, who was born in India, sported the controversial look. She also wore cornrows last year — and was criticized then too.

Not everyone was offended though. When the Lexington Herald-Leader covered Lakshmi’s visit in June, her hairstyle was described by the publication as “elegant cornrows.”

The View’s Joy Behar cowardly avoids addressing her “blackface” costume

Inevitably ABC’s PR team will get around to creating a response for Joy. It’s her SOP.

From Fox News: ABC News’ “The View” co-host Joy Behar remained stone silent Thursday regarding old footage of her donned in blackface that was unearthed this week as similar images have caused outrage and derailed careers.

Behar did not address the situation during the first episode of “The View” to air after her controversial decades-old image caused an uproar on social media. ABC News did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Footage of Behar dressing up as a “beautiful African woman” was resurfaced by TheWrap media editor Jon Levine on Wednesday amid a series of blackface scandals making national headlines. The image of a 29-year-old Behar wearing makeup intended to darken her skin was aired on “The View” back in 2016 when the panel discussed the resurgence of naturally curly hair.

The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symoné, a former co-host, asked a the time, “Joy, are you black?”

“I was so cute,” Behar said in the 2016 clip. “Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?” Raven-Symoné joked.

Behar then explained that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” and stressed that it was her actual hair. “Did you have tanning lotion on, Joy?” Raven-Symoné asked.

Behar responded by saying she wore makeup “that was a little bit darker than my skin.”

“I can’t really get too bothered at this blackface-lite costume because it was 1971 and people didn’t even know what microaggressions were. I’m more flabbergasted by her willingness to pull this photo out and proudly show the world as if it’s totally cool in the year 2016,” Jezebel’s Kara Brown wrote after the 2016 segment.

While the 2016 segment didn’t spark much outrage, NBC famously cut ties with Megyn Kelly last year for pondering aloud whether dressing in blackface for Halloween could be acceptable. Media watchdogs quickly hit Twitter to compare Behar’s situation to what ended Kelly’s time at the Peacock Network.

Last week, Virginia’s Democratic Governor Ralph Northam offered an apology after a photograph emerged on his medical school yearbook page that featured a man in blackface and another in a KKK robe. He reversed course the next day, claiming he wasn’t in that photo but did admit to wearing blackface when dressing up as Michael Jackson for a costume contest. Countless prominent politicians on both sides of the aisle have called for him to step down as a result.

Democratic Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, who had previously called on Northam to resign, released a statement Wednesday that he also wore blackface in college.

Late-night hosts Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon, who have both also worn blackface on comedy skits without backlash, have skirted the Virginia Democrats’ blackface scandals in their late-night monologues.

CBS rejected this patriotic ad for 2019 Super Bowl

For the televised broadcast of the 2019 Super Bowl last Sunday, CBS rejected a  patriotic, anti-NFL-kneeling ad, featuring soldiers, first responders, and images of military graves decorated with American flags.

The ad is narrated by Benghazi survivor U.S. Marine Mark Geist:

“Some people think you’re crazy for being loyal, defending the Constitution, standing for the flag. Then I guess I’m crazy. For those who kneel, they fail to understand that they can kneel, that they can protest, that they can despise what I stand for, even hate the truth that I speak, but they can only do that because I am crazy enough. Don’t ask if your loyalty is crazy. Ask if it’s crazy enough.”

But CBS turned down the ad. Watch it, and tell me what’s so wrong about the ad.

The ad’s sponsor is Nine Line Apparel, a veteran-owned clothing company in Savannah, Georgia, with an annual revenue of $25 million. But CBS’s excuse for turning down their 45-second ad is that CBS thinks the company doesn’t have the money to pay for the ad, which is patently absurd.

Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner that Nine Line Apparel CEO Tyler Merritt says CBS’s real reason for rejecting the ad is because CBS didn’t like the ad’s content:

“CBS’s purported reason for rejecting a Super Bowl commercial that extols patriotism is totally out of bounds. Let’s call this what it is: a blatant attempt to censor a message that their politically correct executives find offensive. We urge Americans who believe it’s important to show respect for our flag and national anthem to join us in calling out this offensive bias. It’s time to give a penalty flag to CBS.”

Indeed, Nine Line Apparel is unabashedly patriotic. The company’s “About Us” page reads:

RELENTLESSLY PATRIOTIC SINCE 2012

It’s much more than getting dressed everyday, it’s about being proud of who you are, what you wear, and how you walk through life. We are relentlessly patriotic. We hold no punches, we don’t apologize for our love of country. We are America’s next greatest generation.

In the military, a Nine Line is a medevac request for a soldier that is injured on the battlefield. To soldiers, a Nine Line symbolizes patriotism, hope, and trust in one’s countrymen.

As a life-style brand, Nine Line Apparel aims to reinvigorate the sense of patriotism and national pride that is disappearing daily from our society. Where politics and dissent divide our country, we hope to inspire unity and brotherhood among all Americans as patriots under our common flag.

At its core, Nine Line is a give-back organization, forever striving to be our brother’s keeper, and encouraging others to do the same. We support a multitude of initiatives beyond raising awareness, and financially back organizations that help those in need. From first responders to military charities to disaster relief initiatives, Nine Line is committed to ongoing support of charitable initiatives. No matter the circumstances, we’ve got your six. To learn more about our Foundation, please visit www.ninelinefoundation.org.

What you can do:

  1. Make this story go viral with hashtag #CBSCensorsPatriots.
  2. Patronize Nine Line Apparel. I went on its “On Sale” reduced-price page: The prices are very reasonable. There are jackets with an American flag patch, and t-shirts with the American flag and “Don’t Tread On Me” message.

Finding new ways to be a victim: Lack of pockets in women’s clothing now equals “inequality”

Because of this story, women are now calling for more pockets in their clothing. Next they’ll be complaining about how lumpy they look when their pockets are filled.

Some people just enjoy finding something to whine about.

From Fox News: Now that’s #squadgoals.

One savvy bride made sure her bridesmaids looked – and felt – their best on her wedding day, outfitting her six pals in bespoke, floor-length gowns complete with practical pockets. A photo of the bridal squad in a “power pose” on the church altar has since gone majorly viral online as Twittizens call for more pockets in women’s clothing.

On Jan. 23, bridesmaid Nell Goddard shared a hilarious photo from her friend Eve Paterson’s recent London wedding to Twitter in a post that has since garnered well over 10,000 likes and sparked more than 2,300 comments.

In the image, Paterson fiercely poses in front of a traditional altar with her hands in the (unexpected) pockets of her wedding gown, as her surrounding “bride squad” does the same. “My friend got married last month and her dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses ALL HAD POCKETS. And yes, we did use them for storing snacks, thank you for asking,” Goddard captioned the cheeky pic.

“The dresses were great. Eve was clear from the start that she wanted her bridesmaids not only to feel comfortable, but also be practically equipped for all that the day involved,” Goddard told Fox News. “Each bridesmaid got to choose her own style of dress, and when we realized we could ‘add pockets’ for a few extra pounds, it seemed like a no-brainer… although it must be said that you’d never dream of having to pay extra for pockets on a groom’s suit!”

“I think these dresses have proved it’s possible to look good, feel comfortable, and be practically equipped for the day. Everyone who noticed the pockets loved them, and they were incredibly useful” she added.

In the hours since, the image has been met with massive applause, as countless Twitter users praise the practicality of pockets in gowns for both brides and bridesmaids – and opine that the detail deserves to be more frequently added in women’s clothing designs.

“Oh my god! I might have to divorce husband just so I can do this!!” one fan of the dresses wrote.

“Divine! You all look magnificent and adequately equipped for whatever the day may throw at you!” another exclaimed. “Truly she knows how to make a blessed day be truly blessed,” one agreed. “I really wish I’d thought of pockets when I got married. Such a little thing yet so important,” another mused.

The bride, meanwhile, told BBC that the custom detail was a no-brainer for the nuptials. “It’s just so rare for women’s clothing to be practical. It might seem ridiculous to most men, but we often have to choose between convenience and looking good,” Paterson, a 24-year-old charity worker from Cambridge, England, said.

“When you have them custom made-to-measure, it only cost $7 extra to add pockets, so really it just felt like a no-brainer!” Goddard similarly told The Independent of the KF Bridal creation, detailing that the crew carried schedules and agendas for the big day in the special pockets.

The bride, too, acknowledged that though the general deficit of sufficient pockets in women’s clothing is a minor issue, it is a topic certainly worthy of discussion and further exploration.

“The more momentum this [topic] gets, the more we’re keen to say that we know this is a relatively small issue, and there are far bigger issues for women around the world! It’s just that the more those who have a platform are able to call out the little inequalities (like pockets!) the more we hope the bigger issues can be alleviated for women globally as well,” Paterson told Fox News.

As noted by the Independent, an August 2018 study from culture site The Pudding discovered that the pockets on women’s jeans were approximately 48 percent smaller and 6.5 percent narrower than those in men’s jeans. (Maybe because women, on the average, are smaller and narrower than men?) The Pudding team analyzed the pocket sizes of 80 pairs of jeans produced by 20 major brands including Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Levi’s for the study.

Man claims he was booted off of flight because of anti-Semitism; airline says it was because of bad body odor

The Adler family kicked off a flight.

This man has a lot to complain about: the religion victim card, worried about his children and in need of clean clothes. He also must not fly very much if he believes that the airline industry has a responsibility “to go above and beyond” in their service.

From SF Gate: A Michigan couple and their 19-month-old daughter were removed from an American Airlines flight after the airline told them that other passengers and crew members had complained about their body odor.

Yossi Adler said he and his wife, Jennie, were heading home from a vacation in Miami on Wednesday night when they were told there was an emergency and they needed to exit the plane.

The couple, both 37, had eight other children at home in Southfield, Michigan, so Adler said that he and his wife were worried that there may have been an incident involving one of them. (Wouldn’t a babysitter or one of the kids called them if there was an incident at home?)

Later, he said, when he and his wife stepped off the plane and the airline told them that they had been removed because of a stench, they were “humiliated,” “frustrated” and left wondering about the real reason. “Obviously, there was a reason,” Adler, who is Jewish, said in a phone interview Friday with The Washington Post. “But I think it was an anti-Semitic reason.”

“Even if it wasn’t,” he added, “they were anti-Semitic afterward.”

American Airlines said in a statement that the Adlers were asked to deplane after “multiple passengers, along with our crew members, complained about Mr. Adler’s body odor. Our Miami airport team members were concerned about the comfort of our other passengers due to the odor. Our team members took care of the family and provided hotel accommodations and meals, and rebooked them on a flight to Detroit Thursday morning.”

The airline said its employees did not know of Adler’s religion.

Adler said the vouchers that American Airlines gave him for food and lodging did not work, so he had to pay out of pocket. The airline said that should not have been the case but that it will look into the matter and ensure any such expenses are reimbursed.

In any case, Adler said, had the airline been that concerned about his body odor, it should have given him clean clothes to wear. Instead, he said, he had to wear the same clothes on the flight the next morning because he did not have his belongings.

Video showed the Adlers approach a ticket counter Wednesday evening, complaining that the airline had removed them from the plane and then sent their belongings ahead to Detroit. “I’m trying to stay calm here,” Yossi Adler told an employee. “But there’s two Jewish people on the plane, and now they’re kicking us off because of odor. Seriously? Nobody here thinks I have odor. I need to get on a plane tonight. I have eight children at home.”

At one point, after Adler asked airline workers for an explanation for the removal, one of them asked him, “You told me for religious reasons you don’t shower?”

“I shower every day!” Adler quickly responded. “I said you kicked me off because of religious reasons.”

But some people who said they were also passengers on the flight said that it was not about religion. A person who spoke to The Washington Post on the condition of anonymity said that he and his girlfriend were also on the plane and that there was indeed a stench.

Another woman who claims to have been on the flight took to Twitter to back up American Airline’s claim. “The smell was so bad I don’t think I could have made it through the 2.5 hr flight,” she said.

Asked about that claim, Adler said in a text message to The Post that “the ‘BO’ is a fairy tale and cover for the reprehensible discrimination exhibited to myself and the insensitive treatment I and my family received by AA staff. My attorneys will prove that the BO claim is absolute nonsense.”

Adler told The Post that he had showered Wednesday morning.

Adler described the experience as a “horrible” ordeal, explaining that airline employees were walking around the airport holding their noses and fanning their faces. He said that had there been a legitimate body odor issue, the employees, who have a responsibly in the service industry “to go above and beyond,” should have helped him.
“Not once in my life has someone said I smell,” he told The Post.

The Telegraph corrects false statements and offers an apology to our First Lady

#FakeNews apologizing? Has hell frozen over?

Wonder if the US media will follow suit (that is rhetorical, of course).

From The Telegraph: Following last Saturday’s (Jan 19) Telegraph magazine cover story “The mystery of Melania”, we have been asked to make clear that the article contained a number of false statements which we accept should not have been published.

Mrs. Trump’s father was not a fearsome presence and did not control the family. Mrs. Trump did not leave her Design and Architecture course at University relating to the completion of an exam, as alleged in the article, but rather because she wanted to pursue a successful career as a professional model.

Mrs. Trump was not struggling in her modelling career before she met Mr. Trump, and she did not advance in her career due to the assistance of Mr. Trump. We accept that Mrs. Trump was a successful professional model in her own right before she met her husband and obtained her own modelling work without his assistance.

Mrs. Trump met Mr. Trump in 1998, not in 1996 as stated in the article.

The article also wrongly claimed that Mrs. Trump’s mother, father and sister relocated to New York in 2005 to live in buildings owned by Mr. Trump. They did not.

The claim that Mrs. Trump cried on election night is also false.

We apologise unreservedly to The First Lady and her family for any embarrassment caused by our publication of these allegations.

As a mark of our regret we have agreed to pay Mrs. Trump substantial damages as well as her legal costs.
