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:
Judging the PC Police
Judge Judy Sheindlin isn’t scared about sharing her thoughts on cancel culture, but she does find the concept frightening.
“If you’re a bad person, if you’ve done something wrong, you’ve got to be prepared to pay the piper. And there are people who have done just that. They’ve paid the price with their good name, their footprint. That’s a good thing,” she said. “But to have a fear of speaking your opinion, for fear of being put on somebody’s list and canceled? It’s a frightening place for America to be. And you’re right. I’m not a big fan of the PC police.”
She also expressed that expanding the Supreme Court only makes sense to democrats. “It’s a dumb idea,” she criticized. “We’ve worked brilliantly in this country with the Supreme Court exactly the way it is. Changing it makes absolutely no sense to me, except politically.”
Lefty “Avengers” star Mark Ruffalo is calling for sanctions on Israel and encouraging his Twitter followers to sign a petition that calls the country’s “military occupation” over Palestine “racist brutality.”
Despite an unrelenting barrage of Hamas rockets that Israel’s Iron Dome has been forced to shoot out of the sky, Ruffalo tweeted: “1500 Palestinians face expulsion in #Jerusalem. 200 protesters have been injured. 9 children have been killed. Sanctions on South Africa helped free its black people – it’s time for sanctions on Israel to free Palestinians.”
Actor Seth Rogen spoke to Howard Stern about the time he and director Judd Apatow narrowly avoided Tom Cruise’s recruitment pitch for the Church of Scientology. The meeting took place at the height of Cruise’s couch-jumping days, and Rogen recalls the actor complaining that he believed the pharmaceutical industry was trying to make him look bad, before parlaying into religious rhetoric.
“‘It’s like with Scientology,’ he said, ‘If you let me just tell you what it was really about…just give me like 20 minutes to really just tell you what it was about, you would say, “No f**king way. No f**king way,”’” Rogen remembered Cruise saying. Luckily, Apatow was there to say no f**king way to the “Mission Impossible” star.
“I’m generally a weak-willed, weak-minded person,” Rogen stated. “I would assume on the grand scale of people, if they got [Tom], what chance do I have?…Thank god Judd was like, ‘Eh, I think we’re good. Let’s just talk about movies and stuff.’”
Under the Lens
The pesky paparazzi actually managed to help out actor Ben Affleck while they were stalking his house to catch a pic of rumored beau Jennifer Lopez. An intruder disguised as a security guard tried to break into the actor’s home but was caught hopping over the property’s gate by the paps. The pack of photographers called the police, and the man jumped back over the fence and fled.
Prince Harry claims Prince Charles caused him pain and suffering while growing up royal. “He treated me the way he was treated,” the Duke of Sussex began. “It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway, so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say, ‘You know what? That happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.'”
He wants to raise his children with Meghan Markle differently than he was brought up. “I never saw it, I never knew about it, and then suddenly I started to piece it together and go, ‘OK, so this is where he went to school, this is what happened, I know this about his life, I also know that is connected to his parents so that means he’s treated me the way he was treated, so how can I change that for my own kids?'”
