TV actor Eric McCormack slammed after calling for blacklisting of President Trump donors in Hollyweird

The “tolerant” Eric McCormack

Remember folks, #LoveTrumpsHate!

From Fox News: “Will & Grace” star Eric McCormack drew comparisons to the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy on Friday after calling for the boycotting of those in Hollywood who attend an upcoming California fundraiser for President Trump.

Canadian-born McCormack, 56, said he wants the Trump donors’ names revealed so “the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t wanna work with.”

Trump plans to attend the Sept. 17 fundraiser in Beverly Hills during a trip to California that will also include visits to the San Francisco Bay Area and San Diego, The Hollywood Reporter wrote Thursday.
Tickets for the Beverly Hills event, scheduled during the week of the Emmy Awards, will reportedly start at $1,000, with packages for couples costing as much as $100,000.

Hosts for the event will reportedly be Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, RNC co-chairman Tommy Hicks Jr., Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale and Trump Victory finance chairman Todd Ricketts.

In a Twitter message on Friday, McCormack asked that the Hollywood Reporter name names when it comes to fundraiser attendees. “Hey, @THR, kindly report on everyone attending this event,” he wrote, “so the rest of us can be clear about who we don’t want to worrk with. Thx.”

Soon after his tweet appeared, McCormack was blasted on social media, with many of his critics drawing comparisons to McCarthy, whose Cold War efforts to oust Communists from Washington, Hollywood and other spheres of influence resulted in a Hollywood blacklist of those whose loyalty to the U.S. was questioned.

“Hey @jack is this tweet threatening to “blacklist” American Citizens in Hollywood okay for the good of society?” former “Grey’s Anatomy” star Isaiah Washington asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

“How wonderfully fascist of you @EricMcCormack! Yes, how dare anyone in a FREE COUNTRY actually be FREE to support someone that you don’t or have an opinion that differs from yours,” actress Maeve Quinlan reacted. “Anyone that doesn’t get in line with your opinion should absolutely be blacklisted from work.”

McCormack is best known for playing Will Truman in the hit NBC comedy, which was revived for three seasons. His co-star, Debra Messing, is also an outspoken critic of Trump and Republicans.

Covington Catholic High school student sues NBC for $275M

I hope the kid prevail$.

From Fox News: Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann is suing NBCUniversal for a whopping $275 million over the media coverage he received earlier this year, his lawyer said Wednesday.

Sandmann was at the center of a viral controversy back in January, alongside reports suggesting that he and his classmates had initiated a confrontation with Native American elder Nathan Phillips outside the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Subsequent reporting and video evidence contradicted that version of events.

Sandmann’s attorney, Todd V. McMurty, announced the defamation suit against NBCUniversal.

“NBCUniversal created a false narrative by portraying the ‘confrontation’ as a ‘hate crime’ committed by Nicholas,” the lawsuit read, saying Sandmann was “an easy target for NBCUniversal to advance its anti-Trump agenda because he was a 16-year-old white, Catholic student who had attended the Right to Life March that day and was wearing a MAGA cap at the time of the incident which he had purchased earlier in the day as a souvenir.”

This marks the third major lawusit Sandmann’s legal team has launched. The team is also suing The Washington Post for $250 million as well as CNN for $275 million. McMurty previously suggested that The Associated Press and HBO could face simiilar lawsuits.

NBCUniversal did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

When they go low: SNL’s Pete Davidson mocks US war veteran who lost an eye in war

Pete Davidson is a comedian who works on SNL. He’s also a jerk who mocks disabled veterans.

He appeared on SNL Saturday night to make fun of republicans running in the mid-terms. In the video, Davidson mocks Dan Crenshaw who is running for Congress in Texas. About Crenshaw, from his web site:

“Lieutenant Commander Dan Crenshaw (Retired) is the Republican nominee to replace retiring Congressman Ted Poe as the Representative for Texas’ 2nd Congressional District. Dan knew that he wanted to serve his country with the most elite fighting force in history: the U.S. Navy SEALs. Dan graduated from Tufts University in 2006, where he earned his Naval officer commission through Navy ROTC. He immediately reported to SEAL training in Coronado, CA, where he met his future wife, Tara, just a few months later. After graduating SEAL training, Dan deployed to Fallujah, Iraq to join SEAL Team Three, his first of five deployments overseas.

On Dan’s third deployment in 2012, his life changed forever. After six months of combat operations, Dan was hit by an IED blast during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan. He was evacuated and awoke from his medically induced coma learning that his right eye had been destroyed in the blast and his left eye was still present, but badly damaged. Dan was completely blind and the doctors did not believe he would ever see again. Tara stood by him every day and night, keeping faith and praying he would see again. After several difficult surgeries, he eventually regained sight in his left eye, a miracle according to the head surgeon. Dan refused to quit and went on to deploy twice more, first back to the Middle East in 2014 and then South Korea in 2016.

Dan was medically retired in September of 2016, after ten years in the SEAL Teams. He left service with two Bronze Stars (one with Valor), the Purple Heart, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Valor, among many other recognitions.”

In the SNL skit Davidson says the following (beginning at the :58 second mark):

“This guy Dan Crenshaw. You may be surprised to hear he’s a congressional candidate from Texas and not a hit man in a porno movie. I’m sorry. I know he lost his eye in war or whatever. Whatever.

Classy. Real classy.

Mr. Crenshaw took the high road and had a classier response to NBC:

“Good rule in life: I try hard not to offend; I try harder not to be offended. That being said, I hope recognizes that vets don’t deserve to see their wounds used as punchlines for bad jokes.”

This is rich: NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment launches “Erase the Hate” campaign

This is a repost of my August 2018 original blog post which was removed when WordPress shut us down.

Excuse me if I don’t take them seriously.  The TDS that comes out of Hollyweird is all about hate. The TDS that permeates in the media is all about hate.

 

The disdain for white people and their “privilege” permeates education and academics.

 

The violence and hate from Antifa is witnessed at many college campuses and rallies.

The only “hate” progressives like to “call out” is conservative voices.

Fun Fact: In 2017 Princess Nokia (the woman singing in the video) assaulted a white male in her audience at a charity event in England. She then bragged about. From DailyWire:

“Princess Nokia claims the man was heckling her, but the man says he was targeted when he cheered her on by referring to her as “Abigail,” which is what he was told was her first name. It isn’t, and this monumental slip-up apparently triggered the New York rapper to throw drinks at the man and beat the hell out of him.

After striking the man three times, the rapper went back on stage to brag about assaulting the “white boy.” That is, after she threw another drink in the general direction of the audience. “That’s what you do when a white boy disrespects you,” bragged the female rapper.”

Smart move in picking the polite Princess Nokia for this campaign, NBC. Real smart move.

From Hollywood Reporter: The time has come to “Erase the Hate,” according to NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, who has partnered with hip-hop artist Timbaland and rapper Princess Nokia for their social impact campaign that launched Thursday. The release of the “Erase the Hate” campaign video coincides with the one-year anniversary of the Unite the Right march and subsequent riots in Charlottesville, Virginia.

In the video for the campaign’s official anthem, the artists call for change and urge communities to “join hands together and erase the hate.”

“Now is the time. A time for a change. The start of a chapter. The turn of a page,” said Princess Nokia. The rapper also takes a jab at a congressman, as she explains that the country needs “leaders who speak to youth” and bring equality.

In a behind-the-scenes video about making the anthem, the musicians say that joining forces on the song was a perfect fit. “I wanted to join this campaign more than anything simply because I have always revolved my life, revolved my music, revolved my passions around dismantling hate,” notes Princess Nokia. “I’m a champion of love. I’ve always been a champion of love.”

“Music is the most powerful tool to cure any negativity in the world,” says Timbaland. “Being a part of this campaign is perfect for me.”

Last October, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment chairman Bonnie Hammer announced the relaunch of the company’s Emmy-winning “Erase the Hate” campaign across the collection of cable networks, which includes USA, Syfy, Bravo and E!

“When we launched Erase the Hate over 20 years ago, it was truly inspiring to see so many people rally around the call for inclusion over prejudice. We’ve dedicated a lot of thought for a very long time reimagining this campaign for today’s digitally connected world because sadly, this work feels more urgent now than ever before,” Hammer said in a statement, adding: “I’ve always believed people aren’t born knowing how to hate; they are taught to hate. It’s time to channel our energy into doing what we can to break this destructive cycle.”

“Silence equals complicity. Hate and bias must be called out wherever and whenever we see it. We all have a part to play. Fighting hate means using the positions and platforms we have to make the difference we can,” said Hammer. “I’m incredibly grateful to Timbaland and Princess Nokia for joining us to deliver Erase the Hate’s message of equality.”

Hollyweird hypocrites: Self-proclaimed feminist stars keep attacking Sarah Sanders for her looks

chelsea handler tweet
From Fox News: Hollywood women have banded together like never before on issues including pay inequality and sexual harassment, declaring that women all over the world need to stick together and be supportive of one another. But experts say several stars aren’t practicing what they preach when it comes to Donald Trump’s press secretary, Sarah Sanders.
Self-proclaimed activist Chelsea Handler wrote in an op-ed for Thrive in Dec. 2016: “Let’s stop it with the dialogue about how women look or what they wear, or if they’ve gained or lost weight. We are more guilty of this with each other than most men are.”
Cher has often spoken out about the sexualization of womendeclaring at the Women’s March on Jan. 20 that she “believe[s] in this movement.”
But both stars recently attacked Sanders solely over her looks.
Cher tweeted to Sanders on Tuesday to “stop dressing like a sister wife.” After fans slammed Cher for the hurtful tweet, she followed up by admitting it was “kinda mean” but “so funny.”
Handler has gone even further than Cher by mocking Sanders’ “summer whore lipstick” and calling her a “harlot” on her Netflix show. Comedian Fortune Feimster even wore exaggerated makeup to play Sanders for a skit on Handler’s now-defunct series.
And “Saturday Night Live” took a similar swipe at the press secretary’s outfits by putting the show’s Sanders character in a revealing outfit to dance provocatively to a pop song in a November 2017 episode.
The show has also dressed the Sanders character, played by Aidy Bryant, in a bright pink dress to mock the press secretary’s frequent color choice.
Penny Nance, President and CEO of Concerned Women for America, told Fox News Cher’s recent insults proves Hollywood feminists don’t play by their own rules when it comes to conservative women.
“Cher’s attack on Sarah is yet another example of how liberal women in all types of powerful positions stand up for only those women who adhere to their ideology,” Nance told Fox News. “If you’re a conservative woman, prepare to be thrown out of the feminist tent. Their message is that some women will be supported. That some women will be empowered. That some women will [be] trusted. But they don’t support all women and especially those of us who support life.”
Dan Gainor, vice president of business and culture at the Media Research Center, echoed Nance’s comments adding that the recent attacks on Sanders’ looks are “especially offensive.”
They don’t just attack her for being conservative. They dare to treat her as if she’s not a woman. They blast her clothes and say she dresses like a ‘sister wife,'” Gainor said. “…Chelsea Handler called her a ‘harlot’ with ‘summer whore lipstick.’ And these are women doing this. Imagine the media outrage if conservatives dared to treat a liberal woman with such disgust.”
He added, “Liberals hate anyone who doesn’t side with them.”
Branding and public relations expert Scott Pinsker told Fox News these stars are hurting their brands by attacking Trump’s press secretary.
“An awful lot of women in America look more like Sarah Sanders than the Hollywood starlets who are bashing Trump and his supporters on all the award shows,” Pinsker explained. “If you want to disagree with Ms. Sanders’ political positions, that’s perfectly legitimate, but mocking her for being normal-looking isn’t exactly empowering to women.”

Megyn Kelly takes Hanoi Jane down a notch


Hanoi Jane has a beef with Megyn Kelly. It started when Fonda appeared on Megyn’s show last year and Megyn asked Fonda about her plastic surgery. Megyn noted she looked good and it wasn’t asked with malicious intent, in my opinion.
Hanoi Jane didn’t appreciate the question and has been whining about Megyn for months. On Monday, Megyn had some choice words for the traitor.
The part where Megyn puts Hanoi Jane in her place begins at the 1:29 mark.
Couldn’t have said it better myself!

They all knew about Matt Lauer: Friends/associates joked about "C*ck of the Rock's" sexcapades at 2008 roast

Matt Lauer
From Daily Mail: Former NBC executive Jeff Zucker who claimed to have never heard ‘a whisper’ of Matt Lauer’s sexual misconduct joked about his in-office antics at an explicit comedy roast in 2008 which was described at the time as ‘three hours of d*** jokes’.
Zucker, who worked with Lauer on Today between 1992 and 2000, was among several guest speakers at the event.
Earlier this week, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said he had to leave it because it was full of jokes about Lauer ‘pushing himself on people’ and ‘having sex with employees’.
While Zucker’s jokes were by no means the most graphic and none centered on harassment or assault, he won laughs from the room by discussing Lauer’s quirky sexual habits.  ‘I don’t want to say Matt is a germophobe, but he’s the only guy I know who uses Purell both before and after he masturbates,’ was one remark. In another crude inference, he told the room: ‘It’s good to see Matt up here and not under my desk.’
The jokes were part of the Friar’s Club Roast at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.
Martha Stewart, one of the other guest speakers, declared to applause: ‘I hear NBC executives call Matt the C**k of the Rock,’ a reference to the network’s Manhattan headquarters. 
There is no footage of the event because cameras were banned except for one which snapped Tom Cruise, another guest speaker, at the start of the event.
Some but not all of the jokes were recorded by a Village Voice editor who took notes under his table. His contemporaneous report of the event resurfaced this week after Zucker’s claim that he had ‘never heard a whisper’ of Lauer’s newly-alleged impropriety.
‘Just got back from the Hilton in midtown after three hours of d*** and p***y  jokes from some of the biggest stars of TV and film,’ wrote The Voice’s Tony Ortega at the time.
The fact that the audience was comprised of 1,900 media and entertainment insiders makes current proclamations of shock at Lauer’s recent firing and alleged misconduct against junior staffers and assistants increasingly unsettling.
‘This was a comedic roast, but there was clearly a vein of truth running through all those jokes. You had Katie Couric, Meredith Vieira and Jeff Zucker all standing up there joking about his sex in the office, his kinkiness.’
‘They all knew,’ one media executive who was present told Fox News.  It is not known which other NBC executives attended. President Donald Trump, who relished Lauer’s firing last week and declared NBC and Comcast ‘fake news’, was also there.
Noah Oppenheim, president of NBC news, has insisted he was not aware of any complaints as has Andy Lack, NBC’s chairman who announced Lauer’s firing last week.
Current staffers say all were aware but formed a ‘boys’ club’ to protect Lauer and sweep complaints ‘under the carpet’.
NBC stars Meredith Vieira, Katie Couric, Martha Stewart and Bob Saget were among other speakers who took the jokes at the 2008 further. Vieira joked about both her and Couric having sex with Lauer.
‘Look at Katie Couric. She juggled Matt’s balls for six years.  ‘That’s three years per ball. She squeezed those suckers so tight, she left nothing for me. Thanks, Katie,’ she said.

Sunday Night Football ratings down, again

nfl-players-blm-movement

Not flying with the fans…


Imagine my distress…
From Yahoo: On a day that ended in gunfire and tragedy at a country music festival in Las Vegas, Sunday also saw continuing controversy with NFL players kneeling before games, more standing, locking arms, and some sitting during the national anthem.
Several members of the Seattle Seahawks chose to sit before Sunday Night Football kicked off, while the Indianapolis Colts decided to link arms in a show of unity for equality and racial justice. The result saw the Colts crushed as the Seahawks overcame early struggles (the Colts led the game at halftime) and scored a blowout 46-18 win.
Whether it was politics or the final score or a mix of both, it was no victory for NBC and the NFL.
With a 11.0/19 in metered-market results, SNF was down 5% from last week when the Washington Redskins beat the Oakland Raiders 27-10. As the league took another week-by-week ratings hit just a month into the 2017-18 season, Sunday’s game also was down a bit year-to-year. Compared with the then-season-low of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 43-14 smackdown of the Kansas City Chiefs in primetime on October 2, 2016, last night’s SNF dipped 2% in the early numbers.
On a night of competition on the other nets, that 2016 game ended up with a 6.7/22 rating among adults 18-49 and 18.06 million viewers. Against the debut of Star Trek: Discovery and more, last week’s 8:30-11:15 PM ET Redskins-Raiders battle saw a final numbers of 6.3/23 in the key demo and a total audience of 17.48 million.
Now, blowouts usually always pour cold water on NFL ratings, and all things considered, last night’s MM numbers held up OK. However, with the politics that have become such a watched player in their own right in the past few weeks, the league might be close to having reached a tipping point. Barely ahead of last year’s struggling season in the ratings, the big-money NFL now finds itself losing traction in the numbers and public perception.

Gee, I wonder why? 2017 NFL kickoff viewership down double-digits from 2016

cleveland browns

Keep taking a knee boys and watch your careers dive…

Good.
The NFL season opener was Thursday night. I did not watch and will not be watching anytime soon as I have no use for the SJWs and their message.
From Yahoo: The score between the winning Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots was settled on the field at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA, last night and now the final viewership numbers are in too.
And NBC and the NFL might be feeling a lot like the defending Super Bowl champs: not so great.
With 21.8 million NFL fans tuning in, the kickoff of the 2017 regular season was down 13% for the NFL and NBC from last year’s opener. Not only does that represent a very real smack down for the league and the net coming off a previous season that saw double-digit declines in its early months, but it is the worst an opening game has done in over five-years.
In fact, this is the first time in five years that the kickoff game has fallen below 25 million viewers. And, while the most watched network show in three months, even with streaming and other NBC platforms bumping things up to 22.2 million, the game still fell short of the 25 million mark.
All of which means a lot more is now riding on Sunday Night Football’s NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys match-up on September 10. Because if those two mega-market teams can’t score ratingswise, the NFL has a real re-think on its agenda.
