Donald Trump is wrong in saying Meryl Streep is an over-rated actor. She will rank among the great female actors list anytime. Trump himself said she’s a fine actress sometime in 2015. But how she got there is an interesting story. It’s just trivia but all the same let’s run through it.
Great performers seek other talents. Streep was doing average roles in movies and plays. She had also worked as a waitress to pay for her acting course. It was Hollywood legend Robert De Niro who, at his peak, spotted Streep and had her cast in the much acclaimed movie “The Deer Hunter” (1978). That movie got Streep her first Oscar nomination. She went on to win 3 Oscars in her career and was nominated more than a dozen times. For Deer Hunter, her boyfriend John Cazale (Fredo of The Godfather fame) was rejected by the studio because he was dying of bone cancer and the studio refused to foot the insurance bill. De Niro reportedly bore the insurance cost so that Streep and Cazale could live together during the making of the film. Deer Hunter won 5 Oscars overall. Her rise to super-stardom is what makes Meryl Streep a powerful voice. A power she used at the recent Golden Globes awards to rant against Donald Trump.
Now, what goes on with Hollywood doesn’t bother me as much because American politics has its own way. Hollywood is largely made up of Lefties, Communists and Fiberals as the whole of California largely is. Traditionally California has voted the Democrats. A rare act for the Republicans was the recall of the Democrat Governor in favour of Arnold Schwarzenegger, a Republican. In the 1950s Commies in Hollywood were hounded by Senator McCarthy and I have briefly touched upon it in my post Bollywood Sleepers.
What happens in the US in such events is usually irrelevant to us other than entertainment and our interest in Hollywood movies and stars. But Fiberal losers across the world unite, like Islamic Brotherhood. They are simply unable to tolerate the fact that Hillary Clinton lost miserably to Donald Trump despite all predictions of doomsday for Trump. All opinion polls predicted a melt-down and death of the Trump campaign. Here’s a sample:
That was the pattern of all the criminal media outlets in the US who rigged opinion polls in favour of Hillary, indecently campaigned for her and trashed Trump almost every minute. Frankly, the contest was which one would the bigger sore loser. Unfortunately, for Hollywood Commies and our own Indian Commie media the win of Trump shocked the living daylights out of them. Look at our own Propagandhini, the master of outright crawling, slavery and arrogance:
Barkha Dutt received the biggest slap of her foolish journalism as did many of her stock. The morons of Indian media wailed as if it was a big loss for them. Must tell you though, that these Commie Pigs who call others “intolerant” couldn’t even swallow the fact the sore losers of the Hillary campaign broke out in violence against the Trump win. That’s the only thing Commie Pigs know – VIOLENCE! Meryl Streep forgets all that and tries to make Trump a huge villain for having won the election and that most Americans are idiots for having voted him. This is true of Commies everywhere. If their candidate doesn’t win – YOU are the idiot. And is as true of all Fiberals Streep did indulge in some stupid lies. The highpoint of her speech was that Trump insulted a disabled journalist. That is far from the truth. Trump, comic as he is, has mimicked many people in his campaign without any references to any individual as this Youtube video shows. This is almost the same as Indian media morons misusing the “Puppy” comment of Modi as being anti-Muslim and insulting their dead. The Commie liars lost to Modi too. Among other things, here’s more of what Streep said in her Globes speech:
I do not disagree with any statement of Streep that is quoted in the pic. Yes – disrespect invites disrespect. And even better, she says “When the powerful use their position to bully others – we all lose”. And all of this sends our Indian media morons into a Grand Canyon-like collective-orgasm of thrill that someone expressed their hurt in Hollywood. Here are some samples of the Indian losers who felt relieved that their deprivation has been soothed by Streep:
Naturally, these idiots are oblivious to Streep’s hypocrisy and cowardice. She blabbers all this in an audience that is largely in awe of her. That was an audience from her same fraternity largely made of Fiberals like her. And she too was using the same power to bully others to her opinion knowing well not one in the audience will question her. This is what the Commie Pigs in our media and politics too want – No one should question or challenge them. If there were a meeting of the White-Supremacist Ku Klux Klan (KKK) and their Chief was to speak, do you think anyone is going to question him? I see Streep’s speech being in the same environment of people of the same club and not in an audience of diverse individuals or groups. Indian media too is no different from the White-Supremacist KKK. They are a bunch of goons with supremacist attitudes that scoff and spit at ordinary Indians, especially of any opposing ideology and particularly those who are Modi/BJP supporters. Streep has something more in common with Indian media goons:
Yes indeed! Just like many in our media and arty-farty scotch-circuit support Tejpal and his acts, Streep too lauded Roman Polanski who is wanted for child-rape in the US and escaped from there and refused to return. Our media is also relatively subdued on sexual-harasser RK Pachauri of TERI. So you see, these crimes by Fiberals can pass but public verdict in elections for a candidate of a different political persuasion is simply UNACCEPTABLE to them. Narendra Modi is unacceptable to them as PM. His massive win in 2014 is still unacceptable to them. That is the deprivation that drives their anger and they found Saint Streep to drown their sorrows. Streep herself is drowning her own sorrows at the loss of Hillary through her saintly speech. And like our own Fiberals, Streep too has grand illusions of Hollywood movies, much of them being crap and some people did put her stupidity in place with facts:
In India too, Cricket is watched by more people than those who watch Bollywood crap or any movie from any region. Such arrogance of being important comes naturally to Fiberals. Robert De Niro who gave Streep her big break considers Streep an extraordinary actress. I agree with that. I too admire Streep for her acting skills. But unlike De Niro (Taxi Driver or Raging Bull) there is not one everlasting performance Streep has left that I can recall. How many know that scientists analysed De Niro’s character in “Taxi Driver” before understanding PTSD (Post Trauma Stress Disorder) among army veterans? And that view finds resonance in the US too:
Paul Watson is a popular freelancer and is popular on Twitter too. Being a superstar gives you the same power that Trump possesses. He may have used it badly on many occasions but Streep too misused her power at the Globes. Last word for a “Wheeler-Dealer” like Shekhar Gupta. You and your ilk can rot in your self-pity and loss but when ordinary people speak, learn to respect them. After all, even his Bible does say “The meek shall inherit the earth”:
My admiration for Streep as an actor does not diminish one bit whatsoever because of a speech I do not approve of. Free speech is fair game for both sides. What does confirm to me is that our Indian media goons will cling to any nonsense to hate ordinary people. What the US media did during the last elections is nothing short of criminal. Same goes for Indian media. “Crooks and liars of the Indian media are the greatest danger to our democracy” was the original tagline for my blog. It is still true today. Both Trump and Modi have successfully demolished these crooks in their own different ways. No Saint Streep is going to save them.
