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:
Joe Rogan advised healthy young people to skip the jab during an episode of his podcast. While he admitted that he thinks the vaccine is “for the most part” safe, he remarked, “If you’re, like, 21 years old, and you say to me, ‘Should I get vaccinated?’ I’ll go ‘No.’”
Singer Ted Nugent, who contracted COVID-19 after publicly declaring that he “ain’t taking no vaccine,” went on a Facebook Live tirade against “the satanic haters” who criticized him for contracting the virus. He also tore into Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and New York Dem duo Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, labeling them “dishonest, corrupt, criminal, power-abusing monster-gang of Satan-worshippers.”
Running in the Recall
Caitlyn Jenner’s sons are reportedly “embarrassed” by their dad’s intention to run for California governor, with eldest Burt deleting his social media to “stay away from political discussion.” In a final post, he wrote: “Just call me Hunter…FML.”
Actor Randy Quaid is also considering running for the office. “The prosecutorial corruption in California (esp Santa Barbara & the Bell scandal) is rampant; and I promise that if elected I will clean up the District Attorney Offices throughout the state,” he posted to Twitter.
Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger weighed in on the race during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”
“The key thing about all of this is it doesn’t matter if it’s Caitlyn or anyone else — to have a clear vision of where you want to go, what are the kind of changes you want to make and why are you qualified to become governor. That’s what you have to convince the people,” he remarked. “All the other stuff is all nonsense because the press will attack you no matter who you are. They attacked me but then, in the end, I won, so that was the main thing.”
Schwarzenegger also commented on Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, “I basically just turned it off and I just couldn’t watch it anymore because there was so much talent there on the stage that it was so boring – how could you make this, with all this talent, so boring?”
The Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL) was certainly not amused by the show’s anti-police sentiment.
“There isn’t a mirror big enough for Hollywood’s self-appointed moral standard-bearers to look into and question their contribution to the glorification of guns, drugs, and crime,” the LAPPL responded in a statement. “There won’t be any protests or social media generated from the red-carpet walking movie stars about homicides and shootings exploding in virtually every big city in the nation, rather, just more blame directed at police officers, because it must be their fault.”
An ESPN site published an article about how the NFL is racist towards Black quarterbacks, noting, “the NFL has long gone out of its way to keep the position as white as the painted yard lines on the field.”
Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson had an opinion about NFL players kneeling, “It’s when they got to the flag, of choosing that exact time to make your protest, I just felt like the flag should really bring us together… yeah, that just feels a little un-American,” he said while debating the issue with his wife Korie on their Facebook Watch series At Home With the Robertsons.
“I understand, though, wanting to change for sure,” he continued. “It’s just like, is that the best time? You know? The flag and even, for me, football. When I watch football, I don’t want to be thinking about who the president is and what the politics are. I just want to watch either my favorite team or two teams go after it.”
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan used a wild remark about COVID to dodge answering if QB Jimmy Garoppolo would remain on the team. “I can’t guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive Sunday,” Shanahan commented. “So I can’t guarantee who will be on our roster on Sunday.”
Will Jimmy Garoppolo be on the 49ers roster on Sunday?
