Hollywood Lunatics and Other Stories

-By Warner Todd Huston

It’s a holiday and some might say we should be charitable to the unfortunate. By unfortunate usually they mean those that don’t have as much as you and I. But one might construe “unfortunate” to mean being gut wrenchingly stupid, too. And when one thinks of the gut wrenchingly stupid one often thinks of the denizens of Hollywood above all others. Still it is awfully hard to be charitable toward such stupidity, I have to admit.

Today I have two members of the gut wrenchingly stupid Hollywood set to report upon. It might have been three but the terminal lunacy of Charlie Sheen just goes without saying.

This week Americans stood ready to wish each other a Happy Thanksgiving, to be sure. Well, everyone was but the vapid Angelina Jolie, that is. To her this holiday isn’t a day to thank God for our fortunate bounty and to reflect upon the fortuitous founding of this nation, it’s little else but “happy murder the natives day” and she refuses to take part.

Angelina Jolie hates this holiday and wants no part in rewriting history like so many other Americans,” a friend of the actress tells me. “To celebrate what the white settlers did to the native Indians, the domination of one culture over another, just isn’t her style. She definitely doesn’t want to teach her multi-cultural family how to celebrate a story of murder.

I suppose we can be charitable and ignore this ninny’s kitschy musings based on her woefully incoherent view of American history. Unfortunately, it is just the sort of vapidity that is de rigueur for the empty headed Hollyweird set. As they puff themselves up imagining they care more than you about “the little people,” they indulge a corresponding hatred of our country all too often.

But Jolie’s absurd notion pales in comparison to the outright lunacy of “comedienne” Whoopi Goldberg (real name: Caryn Elaine Johnson). Whoopi thinks that the world does not have a Muslim problem, thinks “white men” are terrorists, and thinks that Muslims in the USA are persecuted more than Jews. Oh, there’s more. Goldberg also thinks that the Japanese didn’t attack Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Those are truly gut wrenchingly stupid notions.

In a segment on the Bill O’Reilly show, Goldberg unleashed this risible steam of inanity on his poor viewers and proved that Jolie has nothing on the venerable, award-winning comedienne in the department of the absurd.

As she debated O’Reilly… well, the word “debated” is also bestowing a charitable air to the appearance… Goldberg burdened the viewers with the following deeply thought out truths:

O’Reilly: Do you have a problem in history when you were taught about World War II that Japanese attacked us? Do you have a problem with that?

Goldberg: I have a problem with that. The Japanese Army attacked us.

The foolishness of the assumption behind Goldberg’s “point” is laughable. In her view the Japanese didn’t attack us. Just their army did (and O’Reilly corrected her that it was the air force, not the army). So, I guess when any nation’s armed forces are engaged in battle, no one sent them into battle? No people stands behind its own military?

Idiotic.

Unfortunately for the viewers, she went on.

Goldberg: Right now, everybody can say the Muslims are the terrorists. Two years ago, it was the white people that were the terrorists.

O’Reilly: What white people?

Goldberg: Oh, wasn’t it white people that blew up Oklahoma City?

O’Reilly: Yes, two of them. Two of them.

Wow. So to Goldberg, two white guys that bombed the federal building in Oklahoma means that all white people are terrorists, yet that 19 Saudi Muslims perpetrated 9/11, that does not mean that all Muslims are terrorists? Her logic escapes me.

The truth is that neither all white people are terrorists because of the actions in Oklahoma of two of them nor are all Muslims terrorists because 19 of them perpetrated 9/11. But the fact is, in today’s reality most terrorists are Muslims so Goldberg’s whole underlying premise is idiotic all the way around.

One more.

O’Reilly: New study today, Jews in America are far more likely to be persecuted than Muslims, just came out today.

Goldberg: You know what? I’m sure that someone believes that, but I believe that in neighborhoods where they don’t want Muslims, they beat up kids.

You’re “sure that someone believes that,” Whoopi? Yeah, that someone would be the FBI whose latest hate crime statistics prove that in all of 2009 only 107 “hate crimes” against Muslims were reported all across the country. On the other hand, that same FBI release noted that 931 hate crimes against Jews were reported.

If hatred against Muslims was so wide spread in the U.S. as Goldberg imagines, why is there no corresponding rise in hate crimes against Muslims? And the 2009 report isn’t an outlier year, either. In 2008 (see table 1) we find an equally whopping 105 anti-Muslim hate crimes reported.

There is no way to escape the conclusion that there really isn’t much anti-Islamic hate crime in the U.S. even after 9/11. Despite the fevered imagination of one Whoopi Goldberg, there is many times more anti-Jewish hate crime happening in the U.S. than anti-Muslim hate crime.

Once again she proves herself uninformed, full of wild-eyed notions, and wholly devoted to devaluing America in favor of every other nation/ideology.

Sadly, these two geniuses are representative of the skewed, half informed, nonsense that passes for deep thought in Hollywood these days. It’s hard to excuse such foolishness even on a holiday.
