Gotta love these Hollywood types.
They proselytize their leftist tropes and yammer incessantly with all the elite coastal condescension and self-righteousness they can muster, but when their words conflict with their actions, they suddenly withhold their idiocy under the guise of dignity.
They have no dignity. Sleazeballs like Jimmy Kimmel feel no compunction about rallying around the pulpit of leftist righteousness when it comes to self-defining the temperature of American culture, but when it hits a little too close to home, they clam up.
Kimmel weakly explained his reluctance to comment on Harvey Weinstein & Scandal. In fact, he blathered on nonsensically in a rambling fit of avoidance that gives me a headache.
“First of all, the Harvey Weinstein thing, people like this false equivalence of that’s somehow equivalent to what happened in Las Vegas.
Kimmel also said that he fears ‘gun nuts’ angry about him being outspoken about the Las Vegas shooting will “try to take any comedy bit I did out of context and use it as some kind of proof’ that he is doesn’t speak up for women.”
Less confounding are his words as spelled out in the Daily Mail’s headline.
Kimmel has no problem assuming our cultural conscience when he’s speaking about Donald Trump. But if it concerns a sexually-crazed Democratic Hollywood bigwig, he pleads the Fifth. For Hollywood Libs, selective amnesia gives way to selective idealism. Otherwise known as hypocrisy.
