Ricky Gervais Only Said What we all Were Thinking

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Ricky Gervais has had a nice, long career and obviously doesn’t care if he never works in Hollywood again. That became evident Sunday evening when, while serving as host of the Golden Globe Awards ceremony, he gave the pedophiles and financial exploiters in the nation’s most depraved and despicable community a tongue-lashing of a completely different sort than most of them have become accustomed to, if you know what I mean.

Early in Gervais’s monologue, he said this:

Transcript: “No, no, we got ta drag it out for 3 hours. You could binge watch the entire first season of Afterlife instead of watching this show. That’s a show about a man that wants to kill himself because his wife dies of cancer, and it’s still more fun than this. Ok? [audience laughs] Spoiler alert: Season 2 is on the way, so in the end, he obviously didn’t kill himself, just like Jeffrey Epstein. [more laughs] Shut up! I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care. [audience groans and uncomfortable looks around the tables] But seriously, most films are awful. Lazy. Remakes. Sequels.”

Yes, he obviously just doesn’t care. He doesn’t care about these people, their lifestyles, their ill-earned fame, or if he ever gets to host this program again (this was his 6th time in the role of host of the Golden Globes). That became very evident late in his monologue in another 48-second clip during which he takes vicious shots at Apple, Disney and many other Hollywood institutions. He even goes after Global Church of Climate Change poster child Greta Thunberg in the process. Amazing.

Here’s the clip:

Transcript: “That’s a superb drama about the importance of dignity and doing the right thing, made by a company (Apple, whose CEO Tim Cook is at the ceremony) that runs sweat shops in China. [more groans mixed with nervous laughter] So – well, you say you’re woke, but the companies you work for, I mean, Apple, Amazon, Disney – if ISIS started a streaming service, you’d call your agent. [more groans, very few laughs] Wouldn’t you?

“So, if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, right? You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world, and most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. [more groans and nervous laughter] So, if you win an award, thank your agent and your God and f*ck off. [tepid applause]”

Man, that is epic right there. In a mere 89 total seconds, Gervais stood right there in front of an assembly of Hollywood’s most notorious grifters, abusers and pedophiles and said to them what about 200 million Americans would sacrifice an arm to be able to say to them. There was more truth and real human drama contained in those 89 seconds than in all the films produced by Hollywood combined in 2019.

Good for him. The entertainment community could use a lot more truth-tellers, and a lot fewer pedophiles.

That is all.

P.S.:  For those who missed it and care, here is the full monologue:

That really is all.

    In addition to being truthful (throwing truth in the faces of liars) he was also funny!

    This is what “Push Back” – Trump Style – looks like. Good to see conservatives (and I don’t know Gervais’ politics) and others, coming out of the closet and saying what needs to be said – especially on their platforms. About time some people got into the faces of the “elite” left. Remember, none other than Barack the Obama told his flock to do the same to us years ago; we’re just following his advice. Amazing about how what goes around eventually comes back around.

    Trump’s style may not always be pretty, but there is no denying it is effective, and getting more so every day.
    The reality is: conservativism is really nothing more than common sense, and common sense is a commodity that has been sorely missing in America for decades, if not generations! Returning common sense, and dropping PC censorship, to America’s political, economic and social discourse is a key element to MAGA/KAG.

    The Trump administration should bring back the daily press briefings at the WH with Mr. Gervais as honorary press secretary.

    He has a quicker and more vicious wit than anyone this side of Mark Steyn.

    Judge Judy endorsed Mikey “Herod the Great” Bloomberg – (baby-murderer Mikey) and such. Too bad Gervais’ reach didn’t extend to far as to outing these Edomites. Too deep for the audience, most likely.

    I never watch the awards shows….I absolutely cannot stand these stuck up, self centered people who got rich reading lines in front of a camera or those who are just famous for just being famous. They think everyone should listen to what they have to say, just because they are famous. Nope.

    Ricky is my new favorite person today…everything he said needed to be said. Good job!

    Great delivery. Everything he said is exactly what I have had on my mind for years about hollywood. Tom Hank’s face at the end of the above clip, priceless!

    Looks like he treated them like they do us.How entertaining!

    I have his speech memorized from watching it countless times. It will go down in history as possibly the greatest award speech ever!
