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:
“Real-Time” host Bill Maher trashed big tech for censoring content related to the coronavirus lab leak theory. “Facebook banned any post for four months about COVID coming from a lab,” Maher said. “Of course now, even the Biden administration is looking into this.”
He told a story about how a Wall Street Journal reporter questioned the head of Google’s health division about why the website wasn’t completing auto-fill searches for ‘coronavirus lab leak,’ and the Google executive replied, “Well, we want to make sure that the search isn’t leading people down pathways that we would find to be not authoritative information. We want to ensure that the first thing users see is information from the CDC, the WHO.”
“Well, you were wrong, Google and Facebook! We don’t know! The reason why we want you is cause we’re checking on this s***!” Maher asserted. “The WHO has been very corrupt about a lot of s***, and the CDC has been wrong about a lot of s***. This is outrageous that I can’t look this information up!”
“General Hospital” star Stuart Damon died on Saturday at the age of 84, of complications from his five-year battle with renal failure. Damon played Dr. Alan Quartermaine for nearly 400 episodes on the ABC soap opera, and was so popular that the series brought him back as a ghost for years after his character’s 2007 death.
“What a lovely, funny, talented Prince of a man,” recalled co-star Nancy Lee Grahn. “He truly was Charming. What a pleasure it was to work with his iconic self. Condolences to his family.”
“It is with much sadness I heard of Stuart Damon’s passing,” wrote Tristan Rogers, who played Robert Scorpio. “He brought a real steadiness to the Quartermaine family. I enjoyed my scenes with him. Rest easy my friend.”
“Hillbilly Elegy” author J. D. Vance, who is considering a run for the U.S. Senate in Ohio, blasted Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Mark Milley after Milley defended Critical Race Theory teachings in the military.
“I do think it’s important actually for those of us in uniform to be open-minded and be widely read and the United States Military Academy is a university and it is important that we train and we understand, and I want to understand white rage and I’m white.” Miley said to the House Armed Services Committee.
“I personally would like American generals to read less about ‘white rage’ (whatever that is) and more about ‘not losing wars.’” Vance criticized on Twitter.
“What I find so enraging about the Joint Chiefs’ pandering on progressive wokeness is that they know damn well the geography and politics of who dies in American wars,” he wrote. “The conservative Americans you trash are disproportionately bleeding for this country.I’m glad you got your viral clip, General. Maybe you should try defending the enlisted folks, their families, and their values.”
Embattled comedian Andy Dick was taken into police custody over the weekend for assault with a deadly weapon. YouTuber Elisa Jordana revealed on her show that Dick, who struggles with alcohol addiction and substance abuse, brutally attacked his lover Lucas with a metal chair.
“I saw pictures, I saw video; it’s not good,” Jordana claimed. “He could have killed him.”
The LAPD confirmed that the 55-year-old actor was arrested on June 26, and was released on Tuesday after making his $50,000 bail.
Josh Duggar’s child pornography case cost his family another television show when TLC announced they would be canceling “Counting On.”
“TLC will not be producing additional seasons of ‘Counting On,’” the network said in a statement. “TLC feels it is important to give the Duggar family the opportunity to address their situation privately.”
This is the second Duggar reality show that has been halted due to Josh Duggar’s deplorable sexual proclivities. The family’s original star-making series “19 Kids and Counting” was canceled after seven seasons, when reports emerged in 2015 that Josh had allegedly molested multiple young girls, including four of his sisters.
Josh Duggar will stand trial on one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography on November 30, 2021.
Los Angeles Dodgers’ ace pitcher Trevor Bauer has been accused of sexual assault by a victim who obtained a temporary restraining order against him on Tuesday.
“We anticipate there will be criminal action against Mr. Bauer, and it is our hope law enforcement will take our client’s allegations and case seriously,” commented her lawyer Marc Garelick.
But Bauer’s attorney Jon Fetterolf claims that the coupling was consensual and that Bauer has messages from the woman requesting rough sex and asking to be “choked out.”
“In both of their encounters, [the woman] drove from San Diego to Mr. Bauer’s residence in Pasadena, Calif. where she went on to dictate what she wanted from him sexually and he did what was asked,” Fetterolf stated.
“Following each of her only two meetings with Mr. Bauer, [the woman] spent the night and left without incident, continuing to message Mr. Bauer with friendly and flirtatious banter.”
