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:

 

Crime Without Punishment

“Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon sparked Twitter backlash for posting that shoplifters shouldn’t be criminally charged, after complaining that her local drugstore was attempting to deter theft by “locking up” basic household items.  

The former New York gubernatorial candidate was slammed by Thomas Kenniff, who is running for Manhattan DA. “Why don’t you leave the doors to your posh co-op unlocked, and the closets and freezer stocked. Those in need can come help themselves?” He replied.  

 

Mask Hesitancy

Maybe Texas gubernatorial candidate, actor Matthew McConaughey, thinks America should be masking up and the political divide over face-covering policies is senseless.

“I think the best example, for my mind, this last year is the damn dispute over the masks that got politicized,” McConaughey said. “I’m going, ‘come on man. I’m not believing you’re really scared of this little cotton thing. I’m not believing you really feel that takes away your identity and your freedom.’ This is a short-term inconvenience for long-term freedom.”

  He’s disappointed that more Americans aren’t interested in protecting one another. “There’s no data that says it’s not a good thing,” he continued. “There’s no data that says it’s harmful. Let’s all take one for the team here. We like to say we wanna take one for the team. We want to say ‘oh, the value of a human life is the epitome…’ no it’s not. We won’t admit it.”

 

RIP

“Tarzan” star Joe Lara died in a plane crash with his wife Gwen and five others on Saturday. Their Cessna C501 plane was headed to Palm Beach, FL from a Tennessee airport when it went down into a popular fishing lake 20 miles North of Nashville. Lara was 58 years old.  

“The Love Boat” captain Gavin MacLeod died on Saturday at age 90.  He also starred on the long-running “The Mary Tyler Moore Show ” as writer Murray Slaughter for the comedy’s entire 168 episode run. His cause of death was not revealed.

“Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head” singer B.J. Thomas passed away from complications of lung cancer at his home in Arlington, Texas on Saturday. The Grammy-winning singer scored well known hits “I Just Can’t Help Believing,” and “Hooked on a Feeling,” during his storied career. He was 78.  

 

Media Diss

Two-time U.S. Open champion Naomi Osaka withdrew from the French Open on Sunday after being fined $15,000 by the tennis tournament for refusing to speak with the media during the annual event.  

“I think now the best thing for the tournament, the other players and my well-being is that I withdraw so that everyone can get back to focusing on the tennis going on in Paris,” Osaka wrote in a lengthy Twitter post.  “I never wanted to be a distraction and I accept that my timing was not ideal and my message could have been clearer.”

Osaka further detailed that she had been battling depression since the 2018 U.S. Open, and was trying to practice “self-care” by skipping press lines that trigger “huge waves of anxiety,” prior to matches. 

She bowed out after defeating Patricia Maria Tig in the first round of the Grand Slam tournament and announced she would be taking an undetermined amount of “time away from the court.” 

 

Monitored

Shia LeBeouf, who once starred as an ankle-monitored teen on house arrest in the 2007 hit “Disturbia,” has been sentenced to wear an alcohol monitoring device for getting into a physical altercation with a man in October of 2020. 

LeBeouf was charged with two misdemeanors for battery and theft, but will avoid jail time by complying with the judge’s orders to stay 100 yards away from his victim and getting anger management treatment. 

 

Memorial Day Support

“Transformers” actress Megan Fox teamed up with Army Veteran Colin Wayne to raise $1 million in product donations for Wayne-owned Redline Steel’s “Operation Memorial Giveback.” Last year, the pair raised more than $2.5 million in donations. 

“Being able to team-up with Colin for a second year in a row and his pledge of at least $1 million in products is an honor,” Fox said. “Memorial Day is all about honoring and remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, and this give back is one I stand fully behind. I want to thank Colin for his service and continuing to put people over profit.”

If you can smell food cooking or a fart. The mask do no good. The molecule of covid 19 is much smaller. If the smell can get thru so can the covid molecule. I suspect if matthew really runs for gov. he won’t do well.

There is actually evidence that the masks cause harm to some individuals, like people with asthma or people engaged in physical activity, like the girl who passed out as she crossed the finish line in a foot race!!!

having Asthma I can attest to that. They also cause eye infections and mask rash. After 4 eye infections and a lot of light headed moments I am glad to discard the masks.

I am praying that if Matthew M decides to run for heaven help us, governor of Texas. My constant prayer is that the good people of Texas send him packing.
He’s a total libturd, and his wife is a major Brazilian liberal hag! Period!
Matt, go back to Hollyweird and memorize your lines living your privileged life. Moron!

Perhaps its time we start pushing back on the oft-heard comment that “there is no data showing masks are dangerous” and comments to that effect. That is patently untrue. If any one has Matthew’s email or twitter handle, maybe send this to him.

1) It has been shown that we are inhaling copious amounts of our own carbon dioxide, which in large quantities can make us ill.

2) If someone has any kind of illness, wearing a mask immediately sends all those germs back down into the lungs, which could cause many more problems than they already have.

3) There are many articles out there in scientific journals about the dangers of face masks reinfecting or infecting the wearer – start here – https://www.bmj.com/content/369/bmj.m1435/rr-40

4) And here – side effects of masks — https://www.msn.com/en-sg/news/singapore/9-side-effects-of-wearing-face-masks/ss-BB13ZHW7?li=AAAHpny&parent-title=covid-19-spore-to-distribute-improved-reusable-masks-from-may-26&parent-ns=ar&parent-content-id=BB14q7iC

5) And this – https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/neurosurgeon-dr-russell-blaylock-face-masks-pose-serious-risks-healthy-individuals/

6) Don’t forget “mask mouth” https://www.foxnews.com/health/mask-mouth-dentists-new-term

7) CDC and NIH have evidence that mask wearing doesn’t prevent anything really – Even docs in the hospital change them out frequently. How many people hang theirs from their rear view mirror and reuse them for days or weeks? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jy_7a8GNN4Q&w=805&h=453

8) Swedish docs say masks are dangerous to your health – https://summit.news/2020/08/20/swedens-senior-epidemiologist-wearing-face-masks-is-very-dangerous/

9) CDC admits masks are ineffective — https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/12/03/efficacy-of-surgical-masks.aspx

10) “The unmasked buried the masked” in the Spanish Flu. So said Fauci – https://archive.is/JzaIz#selection-12437.0-12437.113

Dental professionals have reported a huge increase in gum disease since covid started.
Lung disease is a huge problem as well.
There is a reason mammals are supposed to expel their breath.
I don’t understand how or why anyone can listen to a liberal – always unintended consequences.
