Streisand: Principles, My Ass, You Fucking Hypocritical Douchebag

December 12, 2008

I don’t know why so many people — INCLUDING, it seems, BARBRA FUCKING STREISAND — seem to have forgotten that George W. Bush is responsible for the indescribable misery — joblessness, poverty, orphaning, maiming, death — of countless millions.

He is a LIAR. He is a MURDERER. He is a WAR CRIMINAL.

And Barbra Streisand KISSES this douchebag? She eats DINNER with him?
streisand-kisses-bush

This would be like Jane Fonda kissing Richard Nixon circa 1972. I don’t know why more people aren’t holding La Streisand’s feet to the fucking fire over this, but I, for one, am thoroughly disgusted with this self-righteous asshole.
 

You do NOT get to parade your goddamned limousine liberalism around for 8 fucking years, calling him the Worst President Ever, a war criminal, yadda yadda yadda, charging $25K a plate for fundraisers against him every fucking chance you get — and then CHUCK IT ALL for a fucking ARTISTIC GODDAMNED HONOUR and sit down at a fucking STATE DINNER with him, you fucking HYPOCRITE.

I don’t really care WHAT motivated her. It’s fucking bullshit. He’s a murdering scumbag, she knows it, you know it, we ALL know it — and she accepted a medal from him and sat down to EAT with him. It’s fucking disgraceful and the fact that anyone is DEFENDING her is disgraceful.

Step back for a moment and try to think about the fact that we should be seeing images of this war on our television screens every night instead of “Deal or NO fucking Deal.” That we should be seeing the coffins coming home. That we should be SEEING the children with their arms hanging from torn sinews, blown apart by OUR bombs and by machine gun fire from Blackwater mercenaries.

Jesus fucking Christ, are we such a benumbed fucking society that we manage to worry more about our goddamned 401Ks than the destruction we’ve wrought upon actual human fucking beings on a daily basis for 6 fucking years with our collective apathy…

Jesus Hussein Christ.

“Art and politics are different.” Streisand, asked how she could actually KISS the man she had called so many named over the past several years, defended herself thusly.

BULLSHIT! BULLSHIT! BULLSHIT!

Stand up for what you believe, you VAIN, EGOTISTICAL ASSHOLE. Haven’t you had enough STROKES, you SHITHEAD? There is SUFFERING IN THE WORLD, shouldn’t that supercede your need to be petted and told how BEAUTIFUL and TALENTED and WONDERFUL you are?

You’re fucking SIXTY-something years old — GET THE FUCK OVER YOURSELF.

I’ve received some criticism elsewhere for MY harsh treatment of La Streisand. After all, they say — she’s “just” a singer. Um… here’s the thing. Leaving aside the fact that Streisand has INJECTED herself, vociferously and consistently, into the political arena…

DIPLOMATS, they have to be diplomatic. ARTISTS? Not so much. Artists (at least artists who give a shit about politics, anyway) — we have the OBLIGATION to do things like, say, stand in Tiananmen Square. Or, say, sit on our hands instead of clap. Or refuse to shake hands with murderous scumbags — or refuse to GO to the White House. Or, if the White House shows up at OUR house, turn our backs. Refuse the “Honours” being offered. Make a STATEMENT, goddamnit. MAKE the news when the news isn’t covering the news.

That’s what an artist DOES. An artist doesn’t play dress up and accept the fucking medal and sit down and use the right fork. That’s fucking bullshit.

Which is what makes Barbra Streisand, after some 8 years of calling George W. Bush an illegitimate President and a liar and a criminal and a war criminal, showing up at the White House to accept an HONOUR from him and sitting down to eat a MEAL with him… a fucking hypocritical douchebag.
Rage, rage against the Lying of the Right
