NOT SO "GOLDEN" GLOBES

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 9, 2018

IT’S AWARDS SEASON AGAIN WHERE HOLLYWOOD LIBERALS PRESENT THEMSELVES AS RIGHTEOUS AND GIVE EACH OTHER AWARDS. OPRAH WINFREY GOT A LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES SUNDAY NIGHT. SHE DELIVERED A FIREY SPEECH AGAINST SEXUAL HARRASSMENT THAT HAD THE RIGHTEOUS URGING HER TO RUN FOR PRESIDENT.

THE OUTRAGE EXPRESSED AT THE GOLDEN GLOBES COMES A LITTLE LATE AND IN FACT IS RATHER HYPOCRITICAL. MANY IN THE AUDIENCE KNEW ABOUT – OR HEARD RUMORS – ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN AND OTHERS. MANY HAD EXPERIENCED HARASSMENT BUT SAID NOTHING FOR FEAR THEIR CAREERS WOULD BE HARMED. THAT’S UNDERSTANDABLE.

BUT THE HOLLYWOOD CROWD LOVED – AND STILL LOVES – BILL CLINTON, WHO IS ON A PAR WITH WEINSTEIN WHEN IT COMES TO SEXUAL HARASSMENT, AND WORSE. THEY ALSO LOVE AND VOTED FOR HILLARY CLINTON. HILLARY TRASHED WOMEN WHO ACCUSED BILL AND ENABLED HIM, ALL BECAUSE OF THEIR MUTUAL QUEST FOR POLITICAL POWER.

OPRAH SUGGESTED THE DAY OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT IS OVER.  NOT UNLESS SHE HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE HUMAN NATURE. I’M CAL THOMAS ION WASHINGTON.
