It’s no secret that Hollywood hates President Donald Trump.
And this past weekend, the liberal press descended on the Golden Globe Awards to mock the President in a ceremony known for its left-wing speakers.
But one jaw-dropping speech at the awards show left the Hollywood left stunned like never before.
One of the greatest bastions of hatred for President Trump in the entire country lies in Hollywood.
Among the most liberal parts of the heavily Democratic-leaning state of California, Hollywood has emerged as one of the chief opponents of the President since before he was even sworn into office in 2017.
Most Hollywood stars, directors, and screenwriters are avowed leftists who openly supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, and most are throwing their support behind Democrats like Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren in a bid to defeat the President in 2020.
But while Hollywood is located in the middle of a liberal echo bubble, almost completely cut off from the rest of the outside world, that doesn’t make it immune from criticism.
And this past weekend, the Hollywood left was subjected to perhaps the greatest bombardment of political criticism in decades at the annual Golden Globe Awards.
These award shows are usually affairs where left-wing actors can espouse their out of touch far-left political views on the rest of the country, and condemn any policies or political leaders that deviate from their views.
But this year, it was Hollywood itself that was viciously attacked for its radical politics.
The New York Post has the story, “How Hollywood sees itself: dedicated craftsmen, important artists, world thought leaders. How Ricky Gervais (and everyone else) sees them: criminals, perverts and dopes — a gang of pretentious jerkwads who dropped out of high school when people noticed they were pretty, then mistakenly started to think their insights on world affairs matter.”
“Hired to host the Golden Globes for the fifth and last time, Gervais saw it as his duty to tell Hollywood to eff off, and that’s exactly what he did. All those comics who think they’re ‘bold,’ they ‘bite the hand that feeds them,’ they ‘speak truth to power’ — this is how it’s done.”
Gervais pulled no punches as the host of the annual awards show, tearing apart the liberal political bubble that Hollywood operates in, and chastising the entire crowd for their intolerant political views.
“Let’s have a laugh — at your expense,” Ricky the G warned the roomful of celebrities, machers and blowhards in the only awards show that’s worth watching anymore because it’s the only one that would think of hiring someone like Gervais to host it,” adds the New York Post.
But he wasn’t done there.
“Gervais saved his best for the wrapup of his opening monologue, telling Hollywood exactly what you would tell it if you ever got the chance. ‘You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything,’ he said. ‘You know nothing about the real world. Most of you’ve spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg … So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your God and f–k off. Okay?’,” concludes the Post.
These couple of lines are sure to reverberate across history as one of the most brutal takedowns of the far left in Hollywood that have ever been uttered.
Gervais hit the nail on the head when he pointed out that no one in the room has any understanding of the world outside of southern California, and that their political views are completely incompatible with the average American.
And it was a lesson that the Hollywood left badly needed teaching.
