Well, the Emmy’s have come and gone and I missed them…again. I watched football instead, which I will have more to say about later. In all honesty, I am not much into the award shows in which a bunch of elite snobs of entertainment and music get together and slobber all over each other while trading trophy’s. I haven’t heard from any of them yet, so I doubt they miss my viewership.
From what I have read and watched on the news, evidently this year’s version of the Emmy’s was a real doozy. Congratulations are in order to Stephen Colbert who hosted the lowest rated Emmy telecast ever with a laughable 8.2 rating. All the Hollywood in-crowd, and bimbos dressed up in their fancy rented gowns, got together for three hours of merry Trump bashing – boy, that must have been a real hoot. Guess Trump bashing isn’t as popular once one leaves the stage of the Late-Night crowd. (Me, I watch reruns of Seinfeld) And, in an effort to stick the knife a little deeper into those with a sense of national pride, the Emmy producers arranged to have noted American traitor Jane Fonda to appear on stage as well!
Predictably, they handed Alec Baldwin an award for his absurd impression of President Trump on Saturday Night Live, another show I don’t watch. Since Hollywood in general leans decidedly towards Marxism for anyone outside their cult, why wouldn’t they hand over a prize to the jackass that wears a wig and annoyingly does nasal noises to supposedly impersonate a sitting president they happen to loathe? Sort of like the clown you hire for a children’s party – he may be an alcoholic loser in life, but the urchins think he’s a God. This is the same temperamental intellectual midget who called his 11 y/o daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig,” assaulted a photographer, and became belligerent with a flight attendant who asked him to stop playing “Words with Friends” so the plane could leave. Yeah, let’s hand him an award and then get together to wonder why ratings are tanking.
All the other awards went to people I never heard of in shows that I didn’t know existed. My understanding these shows pretty much deal with “tolerance and acceptance” which are code words for the Left to show how they are so much more superior and compassionate than Conservatives. Funny how their pocketbooks don’t follow their beliefs. (To be fair, my understanding is that Mr. Baldwin has given millions to charity, but according to Forbes, that is not the norm for liberals.)
While all this childish taunting was going on I was watching my beloved Packers go down in flames to those goons from Atlanta in the NFL Sunday night broadcast. The NFL is another beleaguered institution in terms of ratings and for some very good reasons. I have to admit, I even felt a few pangs of guilt for watching an NFL broadcast.
Given my staunchly Conservative bent, one would think I would have quit the Pack for being associated with a league that allows its employees to protest by sitting out our National Anthem. To allow this side show circus act into America’s sport, to spit in the face of our country and everything it stands for, is beyond a national embarrassment. It is a crime by the NFL head offices and every NFL owner that allows to happen. They sure as hell wouldn’t allow those players to disrupt their corporate board meetings or the NFL Owners Annual Revelry Meeting. Yet, they allow it to happen, on our time, by their employees, in stadiums (many paid for by tax-payers), or on our televisions. If it wasn’t the Packers, I wouldn’t have been watching. Unfortunately, I don't follow college football and am hopelessly addicted to the lads in green and gold. I just can’t quite bring myself to quit...yet. I admit for now, I’m weak.
Speaking of tanking, how about those gutless clowns over at ESPN. Curt Schilling is terminated after he made Conservative remarks about bathroom usage, but it’s perfectly acceptable for Jemelle Hill to call a sitting president a white supremacist and a bigot...and to keep her job. I’m all about the 1st Amendment folks, but jeez, don't you think it should work both ways?
ESPN is also the nitwit network that removed a part-time broadcaster of Asian heritage by the name of Robert Lee from the UVA game in Charlottesville after the recent Robert E. Lee statue farce out of fear…hell, who knows what prompted such a stupid decision! You cannot sanely justify it.
The bias at ESPN falls squarely into the lap of John D. Skipper, the President of ESPN and co-chairman of the owner of ESPN, the Disney Company. Yes, the Walt Disney Company – the place where the average American, dreaming of taking their offspring to Walt Disney’s magical park, has to take out a bank loan in order to go stand in long, hot lines for entertainment. Skipper is allowing this prejudice to exist, giving us perhaps insight into his own ideology…or lack of backbone.
Note to Hollywood, the NFL, ESPN, and Disney – we don’t need you! Keep kicking us. The NFL stadiums and America’s theaters are starting to see empty seats. Perhaps you need to understand that you need access to our pocketbooks, or there is no YOU!
