Bill Murray: Identity Politics Have Made
Comedy ‘Harder and Harder’

Breitbart Big Hollywood, by Jerome Hudson

Original Article

Posted By:Maryland_Patriot, 2/13/2018 10:25:27 AM

Legendary Hollywood actor and comedian Bill Murray praised the GOP tax cuts law, slammed identity politics, and applauded the reckoning against sexual abusers in Hollywood in a CNBC interview. “How can Kristen Wiig make everyone laugh?” Murray asked of the Saturday Night Live star, denouncing an identity politics he said makes being a comedian “harder and harder.” “She’s not thinking about being political, she’s thinking about what resonates and what is common to all of us, and I think that’s harder and harder to do because people are trying to win their point of view as opposed to saying ‘What if I

The left has done this to themselves. They have no sense of humor anymore. Other than Trump attacks, skits and rude jokes about him and his family. The left has become one big immature mean girl club.

Leftist intolerance isn´t just the death of comedy--that´s collateral damage--it´s the death of humanity.

Unlike many of his reflexively and fashionably leftist fellow entertainers, Bill Murray understands libertarian tax principles such as, for instance, that lowering the corporate tax rate to an internationally competitive range (as has been done: from 35% to 21%) will stimulate a lot of business activity, which is to the benefit of all. I don´t remember him being all that political before, and he´s only hinting at his capitalist beliefs here, but I believe I could have a beer with him.

George Orwell is dead and gone, and more than a half-century has passed since he wrote “1984,” but he would recognize America today. He was an Englishman (real name Eric Blair) who understood that no state is immune to human mischief. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified,” he wrote in “1984,” his novel of Utopia despoiled, “every book rewritten, every picture repainted, every statue and street building renamed, every date altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has been stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always

The day after the Roseanne revival premiered to massive ratings, President Donald Trump bragged at a Cleveland rally that the show’s success was because “it was about us.” He’s right, but not in the flattering way he thinks. (snip) It’s easy to miss the show’s uncompromising criticism of Trump because the star, Roseanne Barr, just completed an intensive talk-show publicity tour during which she adamantly proclaimed her support for Trump and touted that her show would articulate the feelings and frustrations of Trump loyalists. To some extent, it fulfills that promise through Barr’s character, Roseanne Conner, the loud but lovable matriarch

Former President Carter said during a new interview that he prays for President Trump. "I pray that he´ll be a good president, and that he´ll keep our country at peace, and that he´ll refrain from using nuclear weapons, and that he will promote human rights," Carter told CBS "The Late Show" host Stephen Colbert. "So, yeah, I pray for him." Carter has in the past been critical of Trump and some of his policy decisions. Last month, he said he would prefer Trump not be impeached, even if special counsel Robert Mueller´s investigation exposes wrongdoing on the part of the president. "My own preference would

Actor Rob Lowe explained on Twitter why the revival of "Roseanne" worked. "The secret to @therealroseanne massive ratings is that it celebrates people with huge political differences who are able to laugh and love together as they passionately disagree," Lowe tweeted. The reaction from the left was stuffier than the attic in August. Some replies. "What our country is experiencing is an attack on our very democracy, not a difference of opinions. Trump is a genuine threat to the USA and the world. Normalizing him is dangerous. Not a laughing matter." "I´m not able to laugh and love with anyone trying to destroy America, thanks."

According to the insipid press, President Trump has ignited a trade war with China that will bring down both economies. The press is better at presidential election predictions than it is economics. "China is imposing tariffs on more than 125 US imports including fruit and pork, heightening fears of a trade war between the two countries," the Mirror reported. Oh no! The tariffs will affect less than 1% of the economy. Our exports to China were $169.8 billion last year. Our economy is roughly $19 trillion. We bought $478.8 billion in goods from China last year. China makes a billion dollars a day of the USA. Who would

More than 3,000 Facebook employees have reacted to an internal post about the memo by vice president of consumer hardware, Andrew Bosworth.

The grassroots keep sending messages to Hollywood, but usually nobody’s home. Oblivious to real lives outside the California bubble, the masters of the fanciful, the absurd and the bizarre wouldn’t read the message, anyway. But the town that tinsel made is agog, if only temporarily agog, by the triumphant return of “Roseanne,” the ancient television comedy that went off the air 21 years ago. The first revival episode drew more viewers than its farewell finale two decades ago. “While nostalgia was expected to bring in eyeballs,” Deadline Hollywood, an aggregator of entertainment news, breathlessly reported on the morning after, “no one predicted

Thursday at Rutgers University, former secretary of state and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said she was concerned President Donald Trump had caused a “loss of leadership and leverage” in global politics. The reason: She is concerned American’s word “is no longer trusted.” When asked what her concerns about our “democratic stability” in the era of Trump were, Clinton replied, “I worry about the degradation of institutions, the dismissing of norms and values, because remember, a democracy is fundamentally held together by trust.” She continued, “I would like to get back to where Republicans and Democrats argue about all the policies

Hillary Clinton gave a talk at Rutgers University Thursday and at one point the moderator invoked Nazism when talking about what “could happen” in America. Clinton’s response may leave your head scratching. The moderator said, “As someone who grew up in Vienna and barely escaped the Holocaust, my mother would say from time to time that it could happen here. And, I was–I would be very dismissive of that. I would dismiss it and I would dismiss her comments and her fears as implausible.” “I now find–it’s shocking I’m even about to ask this question–but, I do want you to talk about, what

The reboot of ABC’s “Roseanne” premiere on Tuesday to a staggering 18.2 million viewers. Now, another well-known show could be making its way back to television. According to TMZ, FOX is reportedly considering a reboot of Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing.” The show was canceled last year following rumors that it had to do with Allen’s conservative-leaning beliefs. The show ran 130 episodes between 2011 and 2017 and centered on the life of Mike Baxtor, a senior employee at a sporting goods store in Denver, Colorado. In addition to “Last Man Standing,” the show most likely to be revived is “How I Met

When the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution of the United States, they feared the possibility of partisanship overtaking rights-based government. To that end, they crafted a system of checks and balances designed to pit interest against interest, promoting gridlock over radical change. The founders saw legislators, presidents and judges as ambitious in their pursuit of power. They could not have foreseen our politicians. Our politicians aren´t so much ambitious for power as they are afraid of accountability. (snip) So, what are the real differences between the parties? The Republican Party is in favor of tax cuts and defense spending; the Democratic Party is

A Republican playing a leading role in the House probes into Russian election meddling and allegations of collusion between Donald Trump´s campaign and the Kremlin is advising the president to submit to an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III informed President Trump’s attorneys last month that he is continuing to investigate the president but does not consider him a criminal target at this point, according to three people familiar with the discussions. In private negotiations in early March about a possible presidential interview, Mueller described Trump as a subject of his investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. Prosecutors view someone as a subject when that person has engaged in conduct that is under investigation but there is not sufficient evidence to bring charges. The special counsel also told Trump’s lawyers that he is

Many Marjory Stoneman Douglas students behind the #NeverAgain movement don´t support a new requirement to carry only clear backpacks.

The movie isn’t a hit piece, but the history it tells is infuriating. Chappaquiddick must be counted one of the great untold stories in American political history: The average citizen may be vaguely aware of what happened but probably has little notion of just how contemptible was the behavior of Senator Ted Kennedy. Mainstream book publishers and Hollywood have mostly steered clear of the subject for 48 years. If Chappaquiddick had been released in 1970, it would have ended Kennedy’s political career.

The gun manufacturers of America have had a tough time since Barack Obama, dubbed the “greatest gun salesman in America” on CNN Money, and “best gun salesman on the planet” on CNBC, left office. After the November 2016 election of President Trump, monthly background checks for firearms purchases tumbled by 500,000. The market was so grim that in February this year, legendary firearms manufacturer Remington filed for bankruptcy. But suddenly the fortunes of gun manufacturers seem to have taken a turn upward, thanks mostly to David Hogg. (snip) Background checks for gun sales shattered a record in March while celebrities and

On April 6, a bombshell will hit America´s theaters. That bombshell comes in the form of an understated, well-made, well-acted film called "Chappaquiddick." (Full disclosure: They advertise with my podcast.) The film tells the story of Ted Kennedy´s 1969 killing of political aide Mary Jo Kopechne; the Massachusetts Democratic senator drove his car off a bridge and into the Poucha Pond, somehow escaped the overturned vehicle and left Kopechne to drown. She didn´t drown, though. Instead, she reportedly suffocated while waiting for help inside an air bubble while Kennedy waited 10 hours to call for help. The Kennedy family and its
