"Glam Up The Midterms" - Liberal Comedians Take Political Action

Post by Riddick » 02-16-2018 01:15 AM

November’s midterm elections are projected to be among the hottest, most contentious and divisive in modern history. Spraying gas on this raging political inferno is a Hollywood “axis of influence” — a group of established comedians participating in a well-funded political offensive called “Glam Up the Midterms.”

Projected to spend $8 million with the goal of winning Democratic seats in the most competitive Republican-held congressional districts, the initiative is commissioned and funded by Funny or Die, a comedy website and production company founded by Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Chris Henchy.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “The campaign will work to convince voters under the age of 40 to fight for democracy and take the time to vote in November.” Translation: Vote for Democrats to send an anti-Trump or Impeach Trump message.

Coupled with Hollywood’s epidemic of Trump Derangement Syndrome (otherwise known as “We Are Still Sick That Hillary Lost”), the underlying justification for “Glam Up the Midterms” is the discovery of an exit-poll data point now four years old — a data point so egregious it prompted this herd of comedy leaders to run screaming from their limos and galvanize themselves into action.

What exactly was the data point? The horror that only 12 percent of those under 30 voted in the last midterm election in 2014 (compared with 37 percent of voters over 60). Coincidentally, the under-30 vote was also exactly 12 percent in the prior two midterm elections of 2006 and 2010, according to a November 4, 2014 NBC News exit poll cited in the press reports heralding the launch of “Glam Up the Midterms.”

But now, with Trump and Republicans controlling Washington and Congress, it’s imperative that young voters “fight for democracy” because a bevy of comedians have issued a video proclamation imploring them to, turning midterm-election voting into an act of defiance as cool as a stroll down the red carpet.

Of course, these hip comedy leaders–turned–political activists (as long as activism remains profitable) will not promote the fact that if Democrats win control of the House of Representatives, a trio of septuagenarian leaders will probably return to power.

The star of the trio is potential speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, who turns 78 in March. She is joined by potential House majority leader, Steny Hoyer, who turns 79 in June, and potential House majority whip James Clyburn, who turns 78 in July. But don’t expect to hear “Glam Up Your Elders” in any future comedy routine.

Republican instincts are to wave off this innovative Hollywood initiative as “out of touch.” But the GOP should fight back with a positive message for young voters about how their paychecks are larger and their overall economic prospects have improved with Trump in office. In other words, the mantra should sound something like, “Trump has personally helped you, even though you might not like or agree with him.”

So stay tuned: Will the “Glam Up the Midterms” message of “fighting for democracy” succeed in increasing the under-30 midterm election vote beyond 12 percent? Will the reality of fatter Millennial wallets thwart the comedians’ anti-GOP/anti-Trump message?

At this time, all we know for sure is that the midterm election campaign will be one long, drawn-out show, with predictable laugh lines and no intermission.

Are you kidding me?????? Those of multi-million dollar mansions inside gated-community status telling the masses how to vote against elitist Republicans?

As the Far Left writers would say, "The irony is so 'delicious'........."

Liberal Elites Continue To 'Glam' It Up With Their Deluded 'Comedy'

Post by Riddick » 06-08-2018 12:09 PM

From a column by Brent Bozell and Tim Graham -

What about our entertainment elites makes them think they are so much wiser than everyone else? Why do they seem to think comedians like Samantha Bee and Trump impersonators like Alec Baldwin are going to save America with their rants?

The arrogance of the late-night "comedians" overflowed when Bee called Ivanka Trump a "feckless c---." Bee's old boss Jon Stewart came rushing to her defense: "You could not find a kinder, smarter, more lovely individual than Samantha Bee. Trust me; if she called someone a ..." (Translation: The person deserve it.)

How hard would it be to find someone kinder and smarter than Bee? Most Americans could do it in 10 seconds. But that's how the vile entertainers stand up for one another.

They are the true elites, engorged with self-absorption and disdainful of anyone who misses the point that they are the witty conscience of the country. Standards? They have none. They are above them. Thus, they viciously carve up conservatives in a way they would never dream of talking about their liberal heroes. (Rewind to Bee hugging Hillary Clinton and crying out, "It should have been you!")

Bee's arrogance was self-evident in her lame "apology" that began with a sarcastic "Sorry for breaking America." She shot back at critics: "Look, if you are worried about the death of civility, don't sweat it. I'm a comedian."

"(D)on't sweat it. I'm a comedian" is a Get Out of Jail Free card. They can compare conservatives to Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Osama bin Laden and Satan, but if you think that's too rough, "I'm a comedian." They can pretend to be policy wonks, and when their "facts" crumble, "I'm a comedian." They can make "jokes" about beheading the president, and that's not vicious ... when done by a comedian.

"Entertainers" like Bee should not have a platform to spew hateful, sexist slurs. Just like Kathy Griffin, she only apologized for her own selfish interest.

As Bill Donohue of the Catholic League put it: "A comedian has no more right to obscenely insult people than a cop has a right to randomly beat a person up. Neither should be allowed to take cover hiding behind his status."

People like Bee and Maher mistake their rage-filled rants for humor and mistake their emotional contempt for conservative politicians for expertise. Most of all, these deluded leftists can't see how their vicious hot air is the wind beneath Trump's wings.
