So, at an awards show, full of really wealthy and exorbitantly paid entertainers, she decided to go on a rant. Because, you know, when people want to get a reality check they look for aged actresses with pompous attitudes who have not seen the real world since Vietnam.
I'm not going to call her overrated or denigrate her acting skills. She typically is in films I don't watch and I cannot think of the last movie I have seen her in. Again, that is not a put-down, I just don't typically watch the genres she enjoys making. However, I do think listening to her drone on about privilege and whatever else she babbled about, is a great reason why liberals lost this election. The liberal message is so predicated on us vs. them, that if you disagree on any point, then you are a racist, xenophobe, homophobe, et al.
This is her belief:
"Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press. Just to pick up on what Hugh Laurie said: You and all of us in this room really belong to the most
vilified segments in American society right now. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press."
Yes, poor foreigners sandwiched between the press and Hollywood. This is really pretty funny. I'd like to point out a few things
1) She makes no distinction between foreigners here illegally, foreigners here illegally and committing other crimes, and foreigners who are here legally.
2) She makes no apology for the press which was shown to be in collusion with the DNC.
3) She generalizes Hollywood as some monolithic entity without individuality.
And this is how liberals see the world. Who, outside of the liberal elites could possibly relate to this message? Outside of California and New York, frankly, not that many. I personally hope this elitist line of thinking continues. Democrats will find themselves more and more marginalized in the realm of national politics. The Republicans have a caricature of a man leading the party. The Democrats are an entire collection of caricatures and have no leadership at all. As I heard Newt Gingrich say, they are out of ideas. They get up in the morning and just walk down the hallways of Congress or wherever moaning racist or whatever like a bunch of zombies.
