Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes Speech
New York Times, by DANIEL VICTOR and GIOVANNI RUSSONELLO

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 1/9/2017 7:18:53 AM

Turning attention away from her and toward Donald J. Trump, Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to call out the president-elect for appearing to mock a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015, and warned that a free press would need to be defended. Ms. Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Some conservative commentators immediately criticized her decision to bring politics so vividly into the show. But the room roundly applauded her remarks, which included a plea to support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Comments:
OH, Meryl, Get over it

Leftists, journalists and actors are all in the "Make-Believe" business.

Forgive them, Lord, they know not what they do.

Nor do they care.

Would some one please correct these jerks to say trump was mocking a disabled person. That disabled person was mocking trump. Trump had every right to respond.
Isn´t it wonderful we have such elite people to guide us in our every thought and deeds.

I still don´t get it. Why are these wealthy Hollywood elites Socialists? They have made their millions in our Republic and have cashed in on the capitalist system. The taxpayers who pay to see them voted for Trump. When they criticize Trump, they criticize us. These are the same people who are so desperate for attention that they are taking their clothes off in public by the droves. Many are high school dropouts and alcoholics and druggies. They make a mockery of marriage, fidelity, and motherhood. They are the most disgusting group I can think of. My boycott has already started.

I really do not need some movie star using an occasion of accepting a phony award to tell me (and obviously the entire world) how we should think. It is wildly inappropriate, it is an insult to the award, and we honestly do not care what she thinks.

The Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes is meaningless recognition for a pretentious actress who was overrated on her best day. This award has the prestige of "pledge representative to the social committee." (Animal House, 1978)

You really want us deplorables to go to movies? Then quit insulting us. As it is, I go to about 2 a year. Meryl, you would do well to emulate the great Denzel Washington. Not only is he a better actor than just about anyone I can think of, but he is gracious, humble and charitable. Acting is just his job, he doesn´t let it define him.

Ok Meryl, let´s talk about truth. Are you attacking real concerns or myths? Shall we start with the "violence incites violence" bit? I´ll be darned there was violence incited at Trump rallies.....by Hillary. I must have missed it when you spoke out against the BLM inspired very real war on police incited by a phony charge of police violence. And since you are so concerned about slights against those less fortunate I hope you recall that Hillary preyed upon the mentally disabled to do her dirty work. Your voice emanates from the cesspool of hatred and corruption.

I don´t watch most movies and never current television unless it has actors I don´t know anything about and have grown to dislike.

Old Hollywood understood the need to make "stars" larger than life; to hide their feet of clay. Now, they are all about proudly showing off their baseness and arrogance. What they forget it that people don´t listen to or watch entertainers they don´t like, and holy cow are they growing more and more unlikeable.

The entertainment industry is a business. The financial backers of films expect to make a profit. When you are deliberately insulting half your customer base you obviously think you are above the petty capitalist concerns of your employers. The movie business is drying up and this is why.

#9 to your question - Rush has answered this many times. If you come out in support of the leftist ideology, then you are spared criticism. You hear many times people saying they know actors or performers that are conservative, but are afraid to proclaim that publicly. Rich people supporting causes that hurt the little people they claim to want to help because it secures their place with the "in crowd". Then it´s ok for you to be wealthy if you throw money or your words at worthless causes.

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.

Huh, and I always thought their job was to pretend, better than most, how to be people they could never be in real life.

As my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once, take your broken heart, make it into art.

See? Carrie Fisher was so good at pretending, apparently Meryl thinks she really was Princess Leia. That´s some damn good acting right there.

So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners. And if we kick them all out you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.

And NASCAR Meryl, you forgot NASCAR. But the good news is that YOU won´t be kicked out because you´re ´merican. No fence climbin´ back south for you girlfriend unless of course Trump can get Putin to hack the fence and force you out as well. MMMMWWWAAAAAHHAAAHA!!!!!

I have boycotted Hollyweird for at least the last 40 years. In that time I have viewed perhaps 6 or 7 films most of those to take my grandsons, as children, to a movie such as Spiderman. Unfortunately I can´t stop my family from adding money to the accounts of over rated a..holes (Lucianne doesn´t allow me to spell in full but Hollyweird can use Hitler,Stalin,white supremacist when describing Trump. some thing wrong here)like Cher,Streep.Pacino and especially ones I don´t ever recall seeing in the ad running now that bad mouths Trump. WHO are those people?
If you are really interested in stopping them and their "look how good I am" award shows keep your money in your pocket and do not attend the crap the put out.
Why do they have a national platform and I´m reduce to Tweets,e-mails and posting on Lucianne? Stay home even if you have to watch NBA basketball.

"when the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose"

Like BO, like the dems, like the media? These people have been attacking, belittling, lying about, demeaning, and smearing their opposition for decades. But nasty things done in service of liberalism is "justified" because they are "right" and "virtuous".

Calling these people out for their lousy actions is not bullying, it is SELF DEFENSE. Liberals have tried to use political correctness to smother dissent. You can´t criticize BO, that´s racist. What???

As to the "vilified" media, why do you suppose that is so? Because the media has lied, smeared, hidden stories about dems, and generally been an arm of the DNC? They are completely untrustworthy and are being treated as suce. They have EARNED their status, as has most of Hollyweird.

Here´s a heads up Meryl: I´m done with you, Tom Hanks, and all the other Hollywood-be leaders of America. Never again will I spend a nickel on anything related to any of this bunch of Hollywood liberals...never. In one week you and your buddies haveslimed our White House kissing the statue of Abraham LIncoln, eating waffles and chicken at 40 am with the worst POTUS and FLOTUS in the history of America, dancing like frenetic idiots all over America´s house and peeking in the window of the oval office...on and on. You shove your crackpot edicts down our throats and we´re supposed to love and admire you. Sadly, I once admired you and thought you a great actress. That´s yesterday. Seeing this room full of overpaid, under talented, boring rich liberals air kissing each other and shedding crocodile tears over nothing except one of their various causes, seeing a DeCaprio who has to be certifiably identified as brain dead treated as though he´s a brilliant contributor to science, and then Meryl Streep making a very large arse out of herself was sickening. How I wish all of you had to be trapped in a room with the wrinkled old hag liar Hillary who had the only microphone so you couldn´t get away from hearing her for the rest of your lives.

Last night you looked a bunch of classless phonies sitting like hens on nests waiting for eggs to hatch so you could take credit for whatever is the next feckless cause that pops out.

So Meryl, sweetie, take your mega $$, Tom Hanks and Leo DeCaprio, Stevie Spielberg, mean old Barbra, and copies of your movies and enjoy. The real world is writing you and your pals off. For good.

Someone needs to ask Streep why she gave rapist Roman Polanski a standing ovation but doesn´t defend Bill Cosby who did essentially the same thing (drug/rape) only with adults instead of children.

Is she a racist? Or attracted to pedophiles? I´d like to know before I spend anymore money in a Hollywood that supports this kind of thing.

#9 asks "Why are these wealthy Hollywood elites Socialists?"

Decades back, Jane Fonda and comrade Tom Hayden led a program to corral new Hollywood talent and fill their heads with leftism. It wasn´t an outlying, stand alone initiative but rather sanctioned, institutional brain washing.

Hollywood´s World War 2 hyper patriotism gave way quickly as the Cold War ramped up, the left took over.

It would seem today the indoctrination continues apace. Knowing the background of some of today´s "stars" and seeing how far they´ve turned the other way is just sad. I think many know what´s going on in Tinsel Town but no one will dig up the truth. Where are the talented insiders/academics who can expose the level and depth of Hollywood´s hard left coercion? There´s a huge book waiting to be written. Name names, yeah, I said it.

If you´ve ever heard Streep speaking off the cuff, you probably came away with the impression that she´s a remarkably stupid woman. You may have asked yourself "this is someone who was educated at Vassar and Yale?" Rambling, incoherent, speech laced with profanities (a sure sign of a lazy intellect). Pretty sad, really.

Based on what I´ve observed of Hollywood actresses through the years, I´ve developed a theory that talent is conversely correlated with intelligence. The more talented the actress, the stupider the actress. Streep is an extremely talented actress.

Did not watch the awards program, but saw network evening news channels running clips of her delivering her speech and had the impression that she was emoting—not speaking from her heart. She had an international audience and took advantage of it to, sadly, try to undermine a man who wears his patriotism on his sleeve.

We´re beginning to feel a modicum of respect for TV personality Piers Morgan, who recently lectured President Obama to get over Donald Trump´s election victory. Now he has taken to the virtual pages of the UK´s Daily Mail to lambast actress Meryl Streep for her anti-Trump Golden Globes rant Sunday. The recipient of a lifetime achievement award during the show, Streep took the opportunity to turn her acceptance speech into a six-minute bout of virtue-signaling among her privileged Hollywood peers. Morgan called it "hypocritical" and "easily the worst performance of your career." "I haven’t heard such elitist snobbery since Hillary Clinton branded

On the cover of New York Magazine’s January 9–22, 2017 issue, contributing editor Andrew Rice profiles Jared Kushner, who has more in common with his soon-to-be-president father-in-law than surface appearances might suggest. “Above all, he and Trump share a clannish outlook on life, business, and politics,” writes Rice. On Kushner’s influence with the president-elect, a political consultant who knows him tells Rice, “There were three campaign managers. There was only one son-in-law.” Kathy Wylde, chief executive of the Partnership for New York City, says, “I’m hoping that he’s our Valerie Jarrett, the last person to speak to the president on matters

A U.S. Navy destroyer fired three warning shots at four Iranian fast-attack vessels after they closed in at a high rate of speed near the Strait of Hormuz, two U.S. defense officials told Reuters on Monday. The incident, which occurred Sunday and was first reported by Reuters, comes as U.S. President-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office on Jan. 20. In September, Trump vowed that any Iranian vessels that harass the U.S. Navy in the Gulf would be "shot out of the water." The officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said the USS Mahan established radio communication with the Islamic Revolutionary

It is a natural human tendency to want all good things to go together and all bad things to go together. That’s why we don’t like hearing that Hitler built great roads and was kind to animals, or that Mahatma Gandhi could be petty and nasty. In other words, we hate hearing good things about our villains and bad things about our heroes. This sort of thinking is downstream of tribalism.

Greta Van Susteren to join MSNBC

CIA intelligence reporting stating that the Russian government hacked the presidential election in order to elect Donald Trump is false. It is merely a political attack against Donald Trump with the goal of delegitimizing his presidency. The depth and quality of the CIA reporting are too good to be true. A December 16 NBC report states, for example: “Putin personally directed how hacked material from Democrats was leaked and otherwise used.” Everyone knows that a great deal of hacking comes out of Russia. But evidence of hacking does not lead to the conclusion that there was a Russian government conspiracy to

Donald Trump has hit back at Meryl Streep calling her a ´Hillary lover´ after her Golden Globes acceptance speech took aim at the president-elect. Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award on Sunday, slammed Trump in front of a room of stunned Hollywood stars. She said the moment he mocked and humiliated a disabled reporter ´broke her heart´ as Streep labelled it the year´s most stunning performance. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he had not seen Streep´s speech or the Golden Globes coverage. Trump told the New York Times early Monday that he

Turning attention away from her and toward Donald J. Trump, Meryl Streep used her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the Golden Globes to call out the president-elect for appearing to mock a disabled New York Times reporter in 2015, and warned that a free press would need to be defended. Ms. Streep campaigned for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. Some conservative commentators immediately criticized her decision to bring politics so vividly into the show. But the room roundly applauded her remarks, which included a plea to support the Committee to Protect Journalists.

Professor Michael Eric Dyson thinks that white people should have an ‘Individual Reparations Account’ to make donations to black institutions and individuals. (Snip) I agree with reparations, but maybe this is my white privilege speaking: I can’t imagine actually doing that. That is what I meant by an I.R.A.: an individual reparations account. You ain’t got to ask the government, you don’t have to ask your local politician — this is what you, an individual, conscientious, “woke” citizen can do. But charity can’t be the end of it, right? The Koch brothers gave the United Negro College Fund $25 million, but I

She is among the most famous and easily recognized women in the world, but first lady Michelle Obama feels "invisible" when she steps off her official stage, according to her best friend and ally in the White House. And the reason is a remarkable one considering that she and her husband, President Obama, are America´s first African-American presidential couple. According to top adviser Valerie Jarrett, Obama is invisible because she is black. In her new book about the importance of black mothers in America and how they walk a tightrope in society, White House correspondent April Ryan revealed that Jarrett

The Gold Star father who blasted Donald Trump at the Democratic convention this summer is returning to the national stage this week, firing off a letter demanding the Senate reject Sen. Jeff Sessions, Mr. Trump’s attorney general nominee. Khizr Khan, the Pakistan-born father of a U.S. Army captain killed in the Iraq war, said his son’s service was a rejection of people like Mr. Sessions, who he accused of associating with racially divisive and ‘intensely anti-Muslim” groups. Mr. Khan also said Mr. Sessions has defended proposals “that would single Muslim immigrants out for discriminatory treatment on the basis of their religious beliefs.” “My

President Barack Obama taunted Republican lawmakers Friday as they prepared to gut his "signature legislative achievement" ObamaCare. During an online interview with left-wing White House echo-chamber "explainer" website Vox, Obama snidely said that he would publicly support repealing "Obamacare" if Republicans could come up with something better, but expressed doubt that the GOP would be able to manage it. "Now is the time that Republicans have to go ahead and show their cards," the president said. "If in fact, they have a program that would genuinely work better, and they want to call it whatever they want -- they can

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said any Republican celebrating Russia’s hacking into the 2016 presidential election were “making a huge mistake” and described them as a “political hack.” Graham said, “To my Republican friends who are gleeful, you’re making a huge mistake. When when Wikileaks released information during the Bush years about the Iraq War that was embarrassing to the administration, that put our troops at risk most Democrats condemned it, some celebrated it. Most Republicans are condemning what Russia did and to those who are gleeful it you’re a political hack. You’re not a
