Was Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes speech brave?

Of course, all the news over the last few days has been around Meryl Streep. The commentary has been about her “brave” statement during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globe awards.

This goes to being married to a party. Meryl Streep is unable to see the abuse that the Obama administration reigned on people — taping journalists phones, bullying farmers.

Streep doesn’t see that kind of bullying. Many famous actors are ordinary Americans who did very well, which is why they are wrong in their politics and why they have no moral authority.

Where was Meryl Streep when Obama said to Catholic hospitals, “You will perform abortions or you will close”? Because that is bullying as well.

Miss Streep, you stood and applauded a child rapist, Roman Polanski. You have no moral authority when you only speak about one side. It all becomes political.

And the politics in Hollywood really don’t make any sense. How come no one in Hollywood says that they are earning too much for their art? Aren’t they the 1 percent as well? The kind of people who denigrate the pay of a CEO.

All of the elite in the golden Hollywood cage have been persuaded that they have knowledge of things that they have no understanding of. They are treated like little baby gods on earth.

As always, please listen to the full audio clip for complete context.
