We’re tracking the conservative culture clash with woke Hollywood hypocrites to keep you up to date on who’s winning and who we hate. 

 Here’s what happened today:

Woke Aliens

Disney is planning a television series based on the outer space horror classic “Aliens,” and showrunner Noah Hawley says the premise is as much about social justice as it is about man-eating monsters.

“Those are great monster movies, but they’re not just monster movies,” Hawley commented. “They’re about humanity trapped between our primordial, parasitic past and our artificial intelligence future—and they’re both trying to kill us. Here you have human beings and they can’t go forward and they can’t go back. So I find that really interesting.”  

He explained that the subtext of the film series has always been “about inequality” because they focused on “blue-collar” workers sent into the final frontier by a giant corporation. 

He says his new show will explore the “inequality” represented by the disparity of wealth “we’re struggling with now,” as told through a confrontation with a carnivorous alien species. 

“In mine, you’re also going to see the people who are sending them. So you will see what happens when the inequality we’re struggling with now isn’t resolved,” Hawley said

“If we as a society can’t figure out how to prop each other up and spread the wealth, then what’s going to happen to us? There’s that great Sigourney Weaver line to Paul Reiser where she says, ‘I don’t know which species is worse. At least they don’t f*** each other over for a percentage.” 

 

Lawsuit Relief

Popstar Kesha, who has been in an eight-year long court battle with her producer Dr. Luke, who sued her after she accused him of drugging and raping her, was got good news in court last week.

A judge ruled that a recently fortified free speech law will allow the “Tik Tok” singer to go after Dr. Luke for the legal costs she has incurred defending herself.

“At trial, a jury will agree that Kesha is telling the truth, and thus necessarily conclude that Dr. Luke knew he sexually assaulted Kesha in 2005 but nevertheless pursued for years a meritless,” her lawyers said in court documents.

“Kesha is entitled to compensatory and punitive damages and her attorneys’ fees and costs incurred defending,” the filing says. “Dr. Luke’s scorched-earth litigation strategy is designed to humiliate and destroy Kesha … Dr. Luke’s goal has been to crush Kesha into retracting her reports of abuse.”

The case is scheduled to go to trial in October.  

Anti-Semitic Hypocrisy

Social media platform Instagram is being called out for being anti-Semitic after users discovered that a new filter in the app’s Effect Gallery covered selfie-taker’s skin in tattoos, and one of them appears to be a swastika.  

Influencer Sabrina Zohar said she was left speechless after trying the filter and noticing the hate symbol on her right arm.  “This s–t has to end, not just for Jews but for everyone,” she told her followers. “Hitler and then nazis is not a joke or passive topic so let’s stop pretending it’s okay.” 

“I understand what the symbol stands for and the multiple meanings,” Zohar went on. “But as someone that is Jewish, it’s hard to be reminded of the symbol that is so in your face.”

A spokesperson from Facebook, which owns Instagram said the company recognizes that imagery “can be used in cultural context that predates Nazism,” therefore the filter doesn’t violate company policies and they don’t plan to remove it.   

 

Employee Outrage

Spotify’s staff is unhappy about the content of “The Joe Rogan Experience,” which was the nation’s most popular podcast in 2020.

“I’m personally bothered by his transphobic comments and am concerned with the way he might spread misinformation,” one employee said last year according to a report

“A loud minority of people who are outraged” at Rogan requested that his podcast receive editorial supervision and were denied by the company. Rogan retaliated by tweeting a video mocking the employees for being too sensitive. 

The host has upset woke staffers with brash commentary that often goes against the liberal agenda. He caused a stir in April when he told healthy twenty-somethings to skip out on getting the vaccine.  

Spotify signed the comedian to a more than $100 million deal to stream exclusively on their platform.  

 

RIP

Veteran stage actress and movie star Suzzanne Douglas died at 64, after revealing that she was suffering from “two life-threatening cancers” in January.

Douglass appeared in Broadway hits “Into the Woods,” “Threepenny Opera,” and “The Tap Dance Kid,” in the eighties before segueing into Hollywood. She guest-starred on “Bones,” “The Good Wife,” “Law & Order: Criminal Intent,” “NYPD Blue,” and starred in “The Parent ‘Hood,’” alongside Robert Townsend in the late nineties.

She earned an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 1989’s “Tap,” starred in “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” alongside Angela Bassett, and had a role in Jack Black’s hit “School of Rock.” She most recently had roles in Netflix’s “When They See Us,” and “Really Love.” 

 

Accident

“The Bachelorette” star Josh Murray revealed that he and his friends had been struck by a drunk driver on the Fourth of July. 

“Sorry if I’ve been MIA for a couple days to those asking, figured this was easier to write here – my friends and I were hit by a drunk driver on the lake a couple days ago after the fireworks,” Murray wrote on Instagram. 

Though he said that he was “fine physically for the most part,” one of his friends was badly injured and will require multiple surgeries to recover.  “Say a couple prayers for my bud when u get a chance,” he concluded. 

 

Assaulted

Former Victoria’s Secret Angel Bridget Malcom claims she was groomed and sexually assaulted when she was an underage model.

“By the age of 18, I’d lived in three countries alone,” she said in the July 3 post. “I traveled to all continents except for Antarctica. I’d been groomed by a much older man. I’d been sexually assaulted multiple times.”

She also said that her modeling agencies pressured her to lose weight by having “lots of sex” and doing cocaine while she was still a minor. To get through the horrors of her lifestyle, she became chemically dependent on Xanax and Ambien to sleep through the night.

“Eight years later on my 26th birthday I had a nervous breakdown and I couldn’t leave my house for a year without panic attacks and severe anxiety. I also had a bout with suicidal ideation which was terrifying. That was four years ago,” Malcolm explained. “The reality is, I couldn’t talk about my experiences before I reached this place because I would have intense PTSD flashbacks. I would have panic attacks and I wouldn’t be okay.”

 

Settled

Songstress Mariah Carey settled a lawsuit against her ex-assistant Lianna Shakhnazarian, who tried to shake her down to the tune of $8 million after secretly recording “intimate” videos and embarrassing “personal activities” of the singer.

Carey sued Shakhnazarian for $3 million for violating a 2015 non-disclosure agreement she signed upon hiring in 2015 and settled for an undisclosed sum.  The “Honey” singer fired the assistant in 2017 after she was discovered to be using Carey’s personal credit card to make personal purchases, even though she was paid a handsome $327,000 a year salary.

Unfortunately, not much in this posting is surprising… The “woke” left is doing all they can to isolate people by skin color and give special rights to anyone for any reason, yet they want to take away the rights given to us AND them in the constitution….

And the anti-semitism …that keeps growing…. I read about that somewhere… something happens to people who support the Jews different than to the people who hate the Jews…. An old book, translated from Greek and Hebrew to English back when King James ruled…. hmmm….

They should have made the first Aliens movie woke. They would have been laughed out of business. No one wants to see woke crap when they expect action or scary movie. Stop trying to ram that crap on people. When there are millionaire and billionaire blacks and millions of poor whites dont want to hear how blacks have it tuff.

Anything Sigourney Weaver has anything to do with is anti gun. She uses the proceeds to fight against your 2A rights. Knowing that, am I surprised that a remake of one of her films is going woke? No.

Disney needs to be careful, because you are going way to far left. I think Walt Disney is rolling over in his grave with the crap you people are pulling. My husband still belongs to your movie club, but I really don’t know why.
He has been such a fan when you had the magazine that you would send us, at times they would call him because they thought he would like certain things that weren’t going to be available.
Sorry but you are ruining your movies.

There’s a complaint about the owners of the ships only sending people who know how to run the ship. It’s about money and common sense. You don’t send a billion dollar ship into space on a couple years journey in the hands of someone who cleans out pools. You put this billion dollar ship in the hands of someone who know how to fix the ship when necessary in someone who has studied the ship, engineering, whatever is necessary. Oh yes, the person needs to know how to shoot to kill. Life is not woke, life is real with having the brains to survive whatever happens in life. The Russian communists made sure there was a political watchdog on their ships and military units and in the unions but not to run the ships like a captain or make war decisions in battle. Once in a blue moon the woke interfered to the point of losing a situation, that’s why you don’t send woke jerks.
