Actors Sport Blue Ribbons at Oscars To Protest Trump’s Stance on Immigration

If it’s an Academy Awards ceremony and there are still Republicans occupying political offices somewhere in America, you can bet that you’re going to see plenty of liberal political posturing from Hollywoods elites. And given that Donald Trump is still our president, in spite of the perfervid activism of actors like Meryl Streep and Lena Dunham — well, you pretty well knew how Sunday night would go down.

That’s only part of the reason why I didn’t bother watching this year’s Oscars; “Son-in-Law,” the magnum opus of legendary comedy auteur Pauly Shore, was on CMT at the same time. From what I hear, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway Steve Harvey‘ed the Best Picture award and Jimmy Kimmel made the notably brave decision of trashing Trump before a live audience that contained virtually no Republicans.

Oh, and there were blue ribbons. Did you notice them?

Here’s Lin-Manuel Miranda and his mother, Best Actress nominee Ruth Negga and Karlie Kloss wearing them:

So, what do these ribbons mean? According to the U.K. Daily Mail, the ribbons signified opposition to Donald Trump’s temporary immigration ban, courtesy of the ACLU’s “Stand with ACLU” campaign. Kloss, it’s worth pointing out, is dating Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner’s brother, so there’s always that angle to report.

The ACLU, as usual, took itself very, very seriously:



Thanks @Lin_Manuel, glad you gladly join the fight. And when our children tell our story, they’ll tell the story of tonight. #Oscarshttps://twitter.com/fckinbee/status/835982215490256896 


Finally. Now we know what people who don’t think much about national security policy think about President Trump’s national security policy. I couldn’t be more relieved.

Ever since red ribbons representing AIDS awareness began appearing on the red carpet decades ago, a ribbon has become the best way to say that you want to take a stand for something without really taking any meaningful action — or knowing anything about it, for that matter.

Don’t believe me? Well, check out this list that shows how ubiquitous these wholly worthless virtue-signaling ribbons have become. For instance, an orange awareness ribbon could mean that you’re taking a stand for people with ADHD, lupus, renal cell carcinoma or Prader-Willi syndrome.

Purple ribbons can also mean you’re taking a stand for people with ADHD, as well as being against elder abuse and/or homophobia. A green ribbon means that you want people to be more aware of issues surrounding literacy, childhood depression, or dwarfism, inter alia. Even a zebra ribbon — which sounds pretty hyper-specific — could mean that you’re taking a stand against endocrine cancer or for “vaccine awareness.”

As for the blue ribbons, it’s worth pointing out that the ACLU didn’t get to the color first. In fact, it’s already reserved for addiction recovery, bullying in the United Kingdom, colon cancer, foster care, the West Nile Virus and Canada’s National Non-Smoking Week.

I, for one, would like to be the first express my outrage at Hollywood’s invidious cultural appropriation when it comes to the plight of former Canadian smokers. #CheckYourPrivilegeEh

i have had it with these pathetic morons

Why Hollywoo holds themselves in such high regards is the biggest hoax there is.   A bunch of druggies/alcoholics, jump from one bed to another..   How many of these "STARs"  produce  litters of kids who have nothing to do with raising them,  yet they are going to tell US what our kids shoul hear and see.

These people who "act" as a profession, one which produces nothing of lasting value other than the sale of popcorn and candy bars, actually believe, through the process of self delusion, that they have profound wisdom and intelligent commentary to present  to the public, while they are engaged in presenting each other with cheap awards signifying absolutely nothing.

Small wonder that these same people would support people like Obama and Clinton. Fellow Frauds.

Do they actually believe that a Wall would be necessarily built to prevent Legal Immigration? Or that a temporary Immigration ban from terrorists harboring countries is born from Religious and Racial hatred?

What kind of minds do these people possess? Healthy and reasonable?

Parading yourself as an ignorant buffoon in a tux or some shitty sex garb, pretending you care about America while spouting poison, demonstrates self absorbed saps, not thoughtful, meaningful, and hopeful response possibilities to defeat an abomination.

Who do they think they are kidding?  Only other morons.  

Time to gather up these ribbons and send them to the nations that Trump had on his list.

I have a ribbon for us to wear... it is constructed of white ribbon two pieces forming a cross. This should be easy to understand. The white would be for moral purity and peaceful law abiding God fearing people who love the U.S.A. and showing that in God we trust!

Good plan........start implementing.

Amen!

Now I would proudly wear that one

Actors wear blue ribbons to support anti-Trump....

Are not actors those people whom we pay via our movie ticket, DVD, and online purchases to entertain us? Are they not professionals at pretending to be that which they are not?

The answer to both questions above is, "Yes".

So, my friends, why are we - who pay the bill - giving heed and/or credence to their political spoutings?  They are professional liars, after all, much like our politicians AND they seem to be growing in power almost to the equal of those political "leaders" that are paid to represent us and to create laws that "keep us safe".

The U.S.A. is a republic.
We vote for those who are supposed to __represent__ us, but that happens only
when representation will secure a vote but
the politicians lust after power above all other things and they have no care for how their constituents must live.
They will do and say _anything_ to keep or to obtain that power.

Like the French royalty of the 18th century, the rich politicians desire only their own comfort.

"What? The people have no bread to eat? then let them eat cake!"
The politicians have come to believe that they are our masters rather than our servants.

They are out of control.

It's time to vote ALL of them out of office.
We need to have a 'REMOVE INCUMBENT' option on the ballot but just to vote for
one who is _not_the incumbent is not to remove a politician from office, it is only replacing that politician with its clone.
The remove incumbent option must leave the affected office unmanned.

The election of Mr. Trump to president was a very good beginning in the "vote all of them out of office" but we must continue in that program.  The president can do only so much, especially without the active support of the congress and friends, the politicians who infest our congress are spineless maggots who fear their welfare and illegal alien voter base more than us conservatives.  

Please keep that in mind this spring when most folks, especially consvatives seem to ignore the primary elections and caucus part of the electoral cycle.  Friends, the primaries are of great importance since it is in them that we choose our candidates for office. The general election only chooses the party label that will fill the seat.

I have stopped buying anything that comes out of Hollywood or Disney and many more.

BULLSHIT.  I haven't bought a ticket in YEARS.  And rarely buy DVDs, and I'm very picky about which ones I do buy and who's in them.  So if YOU do that.....don't try to include others into your personal guild-trip.  If you're doing that, then the question is WHY?  Can't you give it up?

Marilyn,

I want you to see this Muslim man who spoke these words to the Canadian's in power a year or so ago. He has been band from Face Book.  Our own government refuses to receive his warnings about the Muslims, Islamic's, terrorists, Isis etc.

I feel that you will share it with others far and wide and they too will share it. Here is the video!

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
