Meryl Streep Confirms, Hollywood Hates America

Meryl Streep Confirms, Hollywood Hates America

If foreigners kicked out, “you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial art”

At the Golden Globe awards Sunday night, Meryl Streep used her stage time to attack Donald Trump. She lamented the fact that such a vulgarian won the election.

The funniest thing about her speech is how she frames the importance of being respectful of other people, a quality she clearly doesn’t think Trump possesses.

Does everyone recall how respectful movies and TV were to George W. Bush? Streep lives in an alternate reality where everyone has always played fairly with each other.

Streep also singled out football and mixed martial arts because apparently America is dumb and lacks culture.

Here are some highlights from her speech via NBC News:

Meryl Streep Takes on Donald Trump at Golden Globes

“Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners,” Streep said after describing the diverse backgrounds of some of her acting contemporaries (“Where are their birth certificates?” she asked pointedly).

“So if you kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts. And that is not the arts,” she said.

The “Florence Foster Jenkins” star called out Trump’s infamous (and often-disputed) mimicking of a disabled New York Times reporter earlier last year, which many have argued was a deliberate attempt to mock members of that community.

“It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I can’t get it out of my head, because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life,” Streep said. “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.

Hollywood and liberals all over loved it:

Couldn’t that last part apply to Saturday Night Live’s treatment of all things Republican? Or Hollywood’s utter disdain for Christian Americans? Streep doesn’t seem to think so.

As for being respectful of others, a quality Streep obviously cherishes, does everyone remember when she showed up at an event over the summer in orange face?

Here’s the video of her speech:

Here they go again making video comments on things political and lecturing the rest of us on how to live and how to breathe and what and what not to like. I recall how well this worked during the election with the actors and actresses, who are all as pure as the driven snow, telling us what to think and how to act. Then after the HRC loss the video of them telling the Electors how to think and what to say, then demanding that the House not cast their votes for Trump.

“Actor of the low IQ, let’s hear your view!”

Meryl Streep is an entertainer. Her job is to entertain, not to give political advice.

Somebody said: “Hey, Funnyman! Say something funny.”, to which I would add: “And don’t lecture me on politics!”

Meryl, if we had listened to you and your colleagues back during the Alar scare, we wouldn’t be eating apples now!

Now that I’ve heard from the Queen of the Highly Paid Pretenders I can finally get on with my life.

What Hollywood liberals do not understand is that America goes to the movies to be entertained. What they do not also comprehend is that many of these movie goers are the very people who are made fun of, laughed at, called names, etc. and who also voted for Donald Trump.

What Hollywood liberals do not see is that they are doing more harm to their “cause” then helping by making speeches that are insulting, childish and seen as lecturing. Keep at it Hollywood and you will be less significant each passing day.

More propaganda from the most irresponsible segment of our society.

“you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial art”

I don’t watch MMA, but besides football, I watch british tv, indy shows, a lot of TCM (the James Caan “Rollerball” was on last night, one of my faves) and a few other classics.

I haven’t watched anything with the latest “stars” in it for years. Haven’t missed ’em, either.

    The only TV or Film I’ve watched in the past six months has been “The Grand Tour”. And that is made by Amazon.

    DaveGinOly in reply to Tom Servo. | January 9, 2017 at 6:50 pm

    Jonathan E, the world’s greatest rollerballer!

    The first time I saw that movie, I was in a theater full of soldiers. At the end, we were all on our feet, shouting, “Jon-a-thon! Jon-a-thon!”

    Poor Moonpie.

Meryl dear, I do watch some television. I consider it a bad habit I would like to break.

I also do watch some football. I like it as a viewer sport because I have my team, watch for three hours of the week. Then I go do other stuff. Sometimes I listen to other games on the radio. I got a lot of cleaning done while listening to the playoffs yesterday.

My primary means of entertainment though is listening to audiobooks. My favorite two seies are: The Dresden Files ( most read by Jim Marsters a Brit ) and Harry Potter read by bo0th Stephen Fry and Jim Dale. Fry is another Brit.

Right now I am doing Lord Peter Wimsey which I believe is read by Ian Carmichael and Petherbridge, I believe both are Brits.

I wouldn’t want audiobooks read by someone who speaks a heavily accented English. Say an indian or spanish accent.

So bugger off.

I don’t care what Meryl Streep or the rest of Hollywood thinks about politics for the same reason I don’t care what my plumber thinks about brain surgery.

So many people say they don’t care what Hollywood stars have to say and yet simultaneously hang on their every word. WTF?

    Ragspierre in reply to Henry Hawkins. | January 9, 2017 at 10:49 am

    Just to be the contrarian that I truly AM, and to add to your observations…

    1. everything here, from Alister’s headline to almost all the comments on this thread, is PC. Rightist PC, surely, but PC nonetheless

    2. what did anyone expect from Streep?; she said totally predictable stuff which is her opinion and right—BFD

    3. what did anyone expect from the Golden Globs; this is a convocation of people who think differently than “middle America”—why is anyone excited about that?

    4. when anybody in Hollywood expresses a slightly Rightish opinion, everybody hops up and down and thinks that’s wunderbar

    5. celebrities in the US have ALWAYS been made opinion-leaders; think Red Skelton, Bob Hope, Jimmy Stewart, Charlton Heston, etc. Think war bond sales and who fronted for them

    6. Streep is a morally confused person who has lauded Roman Polanski, fer cryin’ out loud; why give her ANY of your time, attention, or emotion?

A rich, spoiled, elitist brat. Look at me I am a victim. Boo Hoo! Poor, poor me!

Yawn….. Buck up buttercup! January 20th is just days away.

“I hate you all, but please keep buying tickets to my movies!”

Wouldn’t it be great if all of us had the courage and the fortitude to STOP going to the movies? If we did to this bunch what was done to the Dixie Chicks we could get their attention. Compare this bunch to the Hollywood of the 1940’s. Many of the actors joined the US military and many of the women actresses joined service groups to aid the returning vets. Then we had my generation returning from Vietnam that were spat upon by the likes of jane fonda! It has gone down hill since. What makes a person, who pretends to be another, think that their highly paid status makes them any smarter than the rest of us? What is the percentage of drug use among them. What is the percentage of divorce among them? What is the percentage of their children being felons or worse, suicides? I would guess that all of the percentages are much higher than in the general population. So, STFU Hollywood!

    Ragspierre in reply to inspectorudy. | January 9, 2017 at 11:00 am


    Jon Voight.

    Clint Eastwood.

    Charlton Heston

    Nick Searcy

    So, you really do not want “Hollywood” to STFU. Just people with whom you disagree. Right?

      inspectorudy in reply to Ragspierre. | January 9, 2017 at 5:13 pm

      Actions have consequences. I didn’t stop buying CD’s just because of the DC’s but I have never bought one of theirs. I already have a list of will-not-pay-to-see actors and I stick with it. I think my meaning was clear to most intelligent people on this site without you trying to turn it into a Constitutional crisis. Do you have a day job?

        Ragspierre in reply to inspectorudy. | January 9, 2017 at 6:51 pm

        I hope no intelligent person found any Constitutional implication in what I wrote.

        ‘Cause there ain’t any. It was just about your obvious double-standard. “Hollywood” is not homogeneous. You may need to look that up…

      JoAnne in reply to Ragspierre. | January 10, 2017 at 3:50 pm

      They can give their opinions in interviews but I draw the line at captive audiences. It’s just plain rude.

    Henry Hawkins in reply to inspectorudy. | January 9, 2017 at 11:06 am

    I stopped going to movie theaters 20 years ago.

““So if you kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts. And that is not the arts,” she said.”

She said that like it’s a BAD thing.

What’s even funnier: she said it like she thinks we would agree that it’s a bad thing.

Football and MMMA? The best movies have already been made unless Clint Eastwood decides to do another one. Until then I’ll stick with the old stuff when it wasn’t all car chases and gasoline explosions. Key up Dandy Don ….

Streep is truly a great actress taking on difficult roles. I think the greatest role she could try is to…. act normal.

    Henry Hawkins in reply to alaskabob. | January 9, 2017 at 12:15 pm

    Beat me to it. I was going to say that Streep really is great – but only when she’s acting. When she’s not acting, when she’s being herself, ooph, what a jerk.

      inspectorudy in reply to Henry Hawkins. | January 9, 2017 at 5:19 pm

      Henry, most actors are jerks when they are themselves. Have you ever watched a talk show with one on it? It is embarrassing to watch. I remember Dustin Hoffman once telling about the time he raped a girl while she was drunk at a party! I believe it was on Johnny Carson’s show. It was astonishing that he was that stupid and egotistical to say such a thing. There are a few, just to stop rags from chiming in, like Eastwood and Voight who actually can carry on a conversation about real life but there are not many. My son works in the movie industry and has met many of them. He says most of the ones he has talked to are normal people but then they are not the big stars whom no one is allowed near.

Her line about MMA was hilarious…considering a large contingent of the UFC fighters are foreigners.

Just goes to show that she has no idea what she’s talking about.

She thinks the rest of the US is living in the bubble and not them? Maybe Branco or Ramirez should do a cartoon of the US electoral map with the bubble encompassing everything except the weird coasts.

To be fair, Streep is just performing for her audience. And her audience is rich uberliberals who wouldn’t know if it’s raining or Tuesday without asking for directions.

Talking once about (I think) his performance as George Cohen in Yankee Doodle Dandy, James Cagney said something about not dancing in the movie, but rather playing a character who danced. Meryl is playing an intellectual and cultural critic. But she isn’t one, any more than Christopher Lee was a vampire.

As for serious commentary? This is just a script, no more realistic than Wizard of Oz. Hollywood has a much to do with art as AGW has to do with science.

As a movie, I give this a pretty low rating; as entertainment, it’s just part of Liberalism’s depressing race to the lowest common denominator. But in any event, it’s all fiction. They know it, we know it. Sit back and enjoy the show, or switch to something worth watching. Football, maybe. Or MMA.

I couldn’t name a single movie or TV show that was released in the last year.

95% of our Netflix time is spent on cartoons for the kiddo.

The rise of left-wing anti-nativism is a progressive concern for people from Benghazi to Damascus to Kiev to Berlin, and to People and our unplanned Posterity globally.

Streep said, “An actor’s only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us and let you feel what that feels like…” Yes, your job is to act. Before that you were an acting student. Don’t lecture America on a topic of which your only training (indoctrination) is from liberal media and other useful idiots.

I dearly hope that one of the things that comes out of any reform of the tax laws is something that puts the entertainment industry under the same tax laws as the rest of us, with only the same write offs, depreciation, and lack of creative accounting that we get. Break them financially.

I’d give them all an Oscar for portraying a two month long, two year old style tantrum.
Best. Election. Evah.

She should get an Oscar for Best Ignoramus.

Amazing she has no shame supporting a corrupt traitor for president.

    Henry Hawkins in reply to | January 9, 2017 at 8:13 pm

    Worse for me is that she gave an enthusiastic standing ovation to child rapist Roman Polanski at the 2003 Oscars.

    Polanski asked an actress friend if he could borrow her 13 year old daughter to use as a model for some project. Mother said yes, Polanski took 13 year old, drugged her, then raped her. He took a plea bargain, then skipped the country for Europe, continues to live only in countries without extradition agreements with the US. He’s a nasty piece of shit. But to Meryl Streep, who would lecture us on right and wrong and moral imperatives, Roman Polanski, child rapist, is a hero. Standing O.

One day we’ll be able to replace big name actors with cgi generated replacements tbat cost less than the actors… Rogue One, anyone?

    Henry Hawkins in reply to pwaldoch. | January 10, 2017 at 2:42 pm

    That day cannot come soon enough. The pop music industry is also being slowly taken over by technology, auto-tune, etc., and soon that category of liberal loon will be likewise obsolete. Hurry sundown.

In summary: Streep offends the 50% of her audience that has the disposable income to pay for entertainment.
Seems like the bonehead move of the century from here.
Not very smart, is she?
