Hollywood Lunatics and Other Stories
Posted By Warner Todd Huston On November 26, 2010 @ 5:00 pm In NewsReal Blog | No Comments
It’s a holiday and some might say we should be charitable to the unfortunate. By unfortunate usually they mean those that don’t have as much as you and I. But one might construe “unfortunate” to mean being gut wrenchingly stupid, too. And when one thinks of the gut wrenchingly stupid one often thinks of the denizens of Hollywood above all others. Still it is awfully hard to be charitable toward such stupidity, I have to admit.
Today I have two members of the gut wrenchingly stupid Hollywood set to report upon. It might have been three but the terminal lunacy of Charlie Sheen just goes without saying.
This week Americans stood ready to wish each other a Happy Thanksgiving, to be sure. Well, everyone was but the vapid Angelina Jolie, that is. To her this holiday isn’t a day to thank God for our fortunate bounty and to reflect upon the fortuitous founding of this nation, it’s little else but “happy murder the natives day” and she refuses to take part.
Angelina Jolie hates this holiday and wants no part in rewriting history like so many other Americans,” a friend of the actress tells me. “To celebrate what the white settlers did to the native Indians, the domination of one culture over another, just isn’t her style. She definitely doesn’t want to teach her multi-cultural family how to celebrate a story of murder.
I suppose we can be charitable and ignore this ninny’s kitschy musings based on her woefully incoherent view of American history. Unfortunately, it is just the sort of vapidity that is de rigueur for the empty headed Hollyweird set. As they puff themselves up imagining they care more than you about “the little people,” they indulge a corresponding hatred of our country all too often.
But Jolie’s absurd notion pales in comparison to the outright lunacy of “comedienne” Whoopi Goldberg (real name: Caryn Elaine Johnson). Whoopi thinks that the world does not have a Muslim problem, thinks “white men” are terrorists, and thinks that Muslims in the USA are persecuted more than Jews. Oh, there’s more. Goldberg also thinks that the Japanese didn’t attack Pearl Harbor in 1941.
Those are truly gut wrenchingly stupid notions.
In a segment on the Bill O’Reilly show, Goldberg unleashed this risible steam of inanity on his poor viewers and proved that Jolie has nothing on the venerable, award-winning comedienne in the department of the absurd.
As she debated O’Reilly… well, the word “debated” is also bestowing a charitable air to the appearance… Goldberg burdened the viewers with the following deeply thought out truths:
O’Reilly: Do you have a problem in history when you were taught about World War II that Japanese attacked us? Do you have a problem with that?
Goldberg: I have a problem with that. The Japanese Army attacked us.
The foolishness of the assumption behind Goldberg’s “point” is laughable. In her view the Japanese didn’t attack us. Just their army did (and O’Reilly corrected her that it was the air force, not the army). So, I guess when any nation’s armed forces are engaged in battle, no one sent them into battle? No people stands behind its own military?
Unfortunately for the viewers, she went on.
