Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
- Just when I’ve promised myself to stop writing about Hollywood depravity scandals for awhile, I get up this morning to the following tidbits of news:
- Actress Denise Richards’ divorce papers say that one of the main reasons her marriage to Charlie Sheen ended because of his sexual obsessions with young boys;
- Actor George Takkei, who has spent his past five years on Twitter, sanctimoniously telling everyone else how to live their lives, now stands accused by a former male model of sexual assault;
- Jann Wenner, founder of fake news magazine Rolling Stone, is accused of offering jobs in exchange for sex. Hey, when everything you’re doing is fake, are actual qualifications really necessary?;
- Three women have accused “Atomic Blonde” producer David Guilloid of rape. He apparently considered Harvey Weinstein to be his life’s role model;
- And now, even actor Richard Dreyfuss stands accused of exposing himself and other acts of harassment by a writer who worked with him back in the 1980s. This comes just days after Dreyfuss himself accused fellow actor Kevin Spacey of preying on his then-minor son years ago, proving yet again that what goes around comes around.
- Holy cow, that’s just one day’s sleaze oozing out of Hollywood’s whitehead-filled pours. Imagine what is yet to come from the blackheads.
- Speaking of actors who sanctimoniously tell the rest of us how to live our lives, Hollywood is about to move into its five month-long season of handing out awards for all the products it created during 2017, all of which fall into the range of so-awful-they’re-unwatchable to mediocre-enough-to-waste-30-to-120-minutes-watching-them. The official calendar for Hollywoods’ award season lists no fewer than 20 different awards ceremonies at which the depraved culture’s actors, producers, directors, writers, photographers and various other flunkies will have their chance to pontificate about how awful the rest of America is.
- That list includes awards you’ve heard of, like the Academy Awards, the Peoples’ Choice Awards and the Golden Globes, and many that most have never heard of, like the SAG Awards, the Gotham Awards, the DGA Awards, the NYFCC Awards. The list goes on and on. It seems that no one in our society requires positive reinforcement from their peers like Hollywood’s pathetic collection of abusers of women and children.
- Last year, every one of the awards shows immediately devolved into a competition between award presenters and winners to see who could say the nastiest things about President Donald Trump and those who voted for him. Because, after all, nothing says “we’re better than you” than a bunch of sexual predators with microphones and cameras lashing out at all us hicks in flyover country.
- But hey, after everything that has already been revealed about Hollywood’s depraved, sleazy, women-and-child abusing culture, surely that culture’s representatives who appear on stage at these awards events will get a dose of humility, give and accept their various undeserved awards with quiet dignity, and maybe a few will even offer apologies to the rest of America for the unbridled arrogance displayed by their community in the past towards the “little people” who happen to pay their bills.
- Hah-hah-hah! I’m cracking myself up here! Ok, just kidding with you. It is a very safe bet that what we will see instead is the hosts of the various programs, in their opening monologues, making passing reference to the rampant depravity revealed in all the myriad scandals, and then following up with “But Trump!”, or “But Roy Moore!”, thus freeing everyone else up to just go about their normal business of bashing people they don’t approve of.
- This is all these people know how to do. They can’t summon up the most modest level of dignity because most of them surrendered their personal dignity to the Harvey Weinsteins and Kevin Spaceys of the world in exchange for whatever level of fame they have managed to acquire, and those who didn’t knew about what was going on and remained quiet for fear of reprisals by the powerful. To speak openly and honestly about Hollywood’s culture of abuse is to admit their own culpability. Far easier to just keep lashing out at the guy with the funny hairdo, and pretend the rest of America is laughing along with all of their uneasy colleagues in the audience.
Just another day in Hollywood Depravity America.
That is all.
