Faded celebs suck all the oxygen out of the room

Where were the protesters when Obama and Hillary's terrorists brutalized Syrian and Iraqi women and sold them into sex slavery?


Applause to Sarah Abdallah.

And this is how the world sees today's events in the US where the whoring never stops.

A bunch of self-involved lying whores used their gender to lie to the American people.

Trump is dangerous, deadly -- said former CIA agent Gloria Steinem, struggling TV personality America Ferrera, former hit maker Madonna, her leading lady days are over Ashley Judd and a lot of other women who seemed to feel that if Hillary Clinton had become president, it would have given meaning to their worthless lives.

Trump is dangerous, they insisted.

Trump is dangerous, they said finally finding voices after eight years of silence.

TELESUR reports:

Former U.S. President Barack Obama spent the last months of his term leading a coalition in Syria and Iraq that killed hundreds of civilians.

As liberals mourn the end of the Barack Obama administration, a monitoring group reported that the U.S.-led coalition killed 450 or more civilians in Syria and Iraq since October.

Ashley Judd, where the f**k were you?  Having more cosmetic surgery?

Gloria Steinem praised Barack and Hillary today.

She's never done a thing for Iraqi women.

And Afghanistan women have been pissed at her since 2003.

She made all these promises and didn't follow up on them.

I was shocked the first time I encountered an Afghanistan writer and she explained how Gloria had stabbed the women in the back.

But she did.

And war has gone on in the two terms of Barack and Gloria's done nothing.

Hasn't said a damn word in protest.

Seems like Gloria's still close to the CIA, doesn't it?

The one she refuses to denounce.  Just like she refuses to apologize for spying on students when she was with the CIA, targeting them for their political beliefs.

This is who was applauded today, Gloria Steinem.

Who had the nerve to say, "He said he was for the people … I have met the people and you are not them."

She has met the people and you are not them.

Who is she insulting?

Half the voters in this country?

They aren't "you"?  (According to Gloria.)

She's such a divisive figure.  She should have left the stage long ago.

And what was all this about women of color?

I thought White women were going to listen this go round.

But all I read on the marches is how this White woman spoke and that White woman spoke.

While America Ferrera isn't Anglo White, she is consider Latina White.

Where were the women of color?

Michael Moore spoke.

Is he a woman of color?

This was nonsense and vanity.

This was more self-obsessed crap from America.

Iraqis have been dying and these elitist priss pots have not said one damn word to object to that in the last eight years.

Now they're offended by Donald Trumps' words?

You know what?

I think if you asked Iraqis, "Would you rather America drops bombs on you or bad words?"

I think if you asked Iraqis, they'd say "drop bad words."

The self-obsessed, martyrdom on display today helps nothing move forward.

It does feed the egos of the self-oppressed who need to play the role of victim.

Jane Fonda called Trump a harasser and a predator.

Am I supposed to believe her?

I mean, I can remember when she went around saying similar things about Roger Vadim throughout the seventies.

And I remember Shelley Winters cackling with glee over the phone to me as she read passages of Jane's 2005 autobiography.  I'll be kind and leave it at that.

Hillary Clinton -- who was applauded and cited -- is a War Hawk.

But, hey, this wasn't a march for peace.

It was a march for victims.

Maybe if the marches had followed the plan/outline to let women of color speak, it would have amounted to something,

Instead, it was faded celebrities.

Fake news?

We've had it for eight years as the press has pretended Barack has brought peace anywhere.

And which of these lovelies used their fame to highlight reality?

Not a damn one.

Now because Donald said somethings they didn't like, they march.

Self-involved, narcissistic, faded celebrities shoving their way to the microphones to insist that they would stand up to . . .


Oh, you brave bitches.

Where were you when Iraq needed you the last eight years?

You know you can march as a celebrity to 'draw attention' from the media but you don't need to be on stage.  You don't need to be speaking.

Your voice is heard all the damn time.

There are women America should have heard from but all you faded celebrities wanted to hog the spotlight and pretend you had something worth saying.  That your overly paid and pampered asses could 'relate.'

There were many other women who should have and could have been heard but a bunch of fame-crazed celebrities sucked the oxygen out of the room as usual.

I'm reminded all over again of Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Gorin's LETTER TO JANE.

'The cameras wouldn't have been on the speakers if we weren't there!'

You could have stood onstage -- could anything have stopped you aging Norma Desmonds? -- and kept your mouth closed.  It would given attention to the women who had something to say, whose lives are effected because they don't have several million in the bank.

In Iraq, the war continues and so do the War Crimes.

  • يونامي تدعو الحكومة الى التحقيق في تقرير بشأن تعذيب وقتل أسرى مشتبه في ضلوعهم بأعمال إرهابية في الموصل
  • Statement: UNAMI Calls on Government to Investigate Report of Torture and Murder of Captured Terror Suspects in

  • The above is incorrect.

    It should read "alleged terror suspects" in the body as it does in the headline.

    Where's the concern for Iraq?

    For a never-ending war started by the US and that continues because the US keeps installing governments in that country instead of allowing the people of Iraq to select their own leaders?

    John Pilger called out this nonsense earlier this week at COUNTERPUNCH:

    The obsession with Trump is a cover for many of those calling themselves “left/liberal”, as if to claim political decency. They are not “left”, neither are they especially “liberal”.  Much of America’s aggression towards the rest of humanity has come from so-called liberal Democratic administrations — such as Obama’s. America’s political spectrum extends from the mythical centre to the lunar right. The “left” are homeless renegades Martha Gellhorn described as “a rare and wholly admirable fraternity”. She excluded those who confuse politics with a fixation on their navels.

    That certainly describes the celebrities who felt they had something worth sharing at today's marches.

    Note below:

    - Sectarian Iraqi army entered a school in Amiriyyah, and assaulted/attacked Sunni students and teachers...

    That would be living with terror.

    Those who've got over a million in the bank will never know the terror and should have closed their mouths and let others at the marches speak.

    I'm not in the mood to indulge hypocrisy and vanity, sorry.

    Please check out David Bacon's photo essay on the San Francisco march to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  You won't find a photo of, say, Madonna, but that just means the march was all the more important and serious.
