Why is Hollywood so liberal? Perhaps the Fox 'News' hosts and guest Jeff Dunham don't understand that successful people who make television and movies are, often but not always, pretty insightful and therefore, tend to be liberal. Conservatives seem to lose their minds whenever someone in Hollywood speaks truth to their lies.
The ventriloquist-comedian will star in Hollywood Unhinged which airs this Saturday, September 17 at 8 pm on NBC. Dunham and 'Walter' stopped in at Fox and Friends to discuss the unacceptable political correctness of Hollywood, politics today and his special.
If you are unfamiliar with Dunham, the Texas native got his big break with his appearances on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. The different puppets he performs with are considered, by the 'PC crowd' (Hollywood liberals), to be offensive. Of course PC is right wing speak for people who are empathetic.
Dunham has conceded that he does exhibit particular sensitivity to the "conservative country crowd," or those characterized by "basic Christian values," as they are one of his largest constituencies, and part of his upbringing.
This Facebook entry says it all.
Obviously, the punching down comic style of Dunham is a hit with the viewers of GOP-TV. So they start the anti-liberal dialogue by dissecting an Instagram post from Adrian Grenier:
'Walter,' the dummy, a stereotypical grumpy old man, says that Grenier should post something else that honors the few hundred people who had to sit through the Entourage movie. Of course he didn't acknowledge the actual statement and went straight for the ad hominem. This is because nobody at Fox 'News' nor their audience gives a damn about the innocent lives that U.S. warmongering destroys. Iraqis are thus viewed as less than human, thanks to the Bush-Cheney crime family.
Next up, they discuss actress Emily Blunt, who recently became an American citizen. After the first GOP debate, she told the Hollywood Reporter this:
'I became an American citizen recently- And that night we watched the (GOP) debate and I thought, this was a terrible mistake. What have I done?'
How dare she! That debate was hardly offensive. So what if Huckabee wanted to call the National Guard out to force a woman to birth her rapist's baby, big deal. She should love America unconditionally and accept all the stupid it has to offer. Steve Doocy tried his hand at comedy by asking Jeff if 'Walter' goes to the movies with him and how many seats does he have to purchase. 'No,' Walter replied, 'I've got Netflix.'
The comedian says that he is not set on any particular candidate from the GOP clown bus, but he does like Trump, as they are both entertainers of some sort. His 'dummy' said,
'I look like Joe Biden but I sound like Donald Trump.'
He also said that people should use a dummy to express their offensive and outrageous opinions, because, Donald Trump is always getting into 'trouble' (hardly) for saying outlandish things. He should take a cue from Jeff Dunham. 'Walter' said,
'Obama does that with Biden all the time.'
Isn't that just hilarious? Let's ridicule the VP who just lost his son very suddenly, that's just so nice of this self-professed Christian.
He expressed how nervous he was to perform his special in 'liberal' Los Angeles. He appeared with Brad Paisley (who is actually an Obama supporter) and he was delighted with the crowd's reaction. But it's not all that tough to find a bunch of Republicans to attend your performance with GOP strongholds nearby in Orange County and San Diego. They're trying to push the narrative that Hollywood is the big, bad liberal fortress and he conquered it.
He noted that NBC made him take out the Achmed, the dead terrorist puppet, because the several million American Muslims might be a bit offended, but he sees nothing wrong with the character, of course. Empathy and GOP simply never go together. If you like obvious, in your face, trite humor filled with offensive cultural stereotypes, you'll love Jeff's special.
