“Girls” Star Talks About Her Body

Not Lena Dunham this time, thank a merciful lord. But another one opens her yap (among other things) about her sex life—is it sweeps week or something?

Girls actress Jemima Kirke is lending her voice to the Center for Reproductive Rights in a new PSA.

In the three-minute clip, the 29-year-old mother of two reveals she had an abortion in 2007, and speaks candidly about her decision to terminate her pregnancy.

“I wasn’t sure that I wanted to be attached to this person for the rest of my life,” she confesses. “My life was not conducive to raising a healthy, happy child. I just didn’t feel it was fair.”

Kirke says she couldn’t tell her parents about the pregnancy, which forced her to empty her bank account, as well as borrow money from her significant other at the time to pay for her abortion.

She went through with the procedure at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Providence, Rhode Island.

“It’s these obstacles and this stigma that makes these things not completely unavailable. And that’s the tricky part. We do have free choice, and we are able to do whatever we want, but then there are these little hoops we have to jump through to get them,” she continues.

What are you complaining about, sweetie, you got your way. It’s your baby who has—had—a bone to pick with the process. All it cost you and the father was a little money.

Obstacles…stigma…hoops—stop it. Abortion has never been easier, if Planned Parenthood is to be believed.

The actress anticipates the day her daughters turn to her with self esteem issues, as she describes it as another battle to be fought over the female body.

“I would love if, when they’re older, and they are in their teens, or twenties, that the political issues surrounding their body were not there anymore. They have one less thing to battle around their bodies,” she concludes.

It’s a pity their eight-year-old sister isn’t around to counsel them.

I support the right to abortion, but I would have limits. But that this air-head can talk like this without irony is actually frightening. She’s a monster.

But she’s not Lena Dunham.

What a Guy

Chivalry is not dead:

It’s been close to five years since Louis C.K. got drunk on an airplane and tweeted the foulest things he could think of about Sarah Palin. Since then, he has moved on and deleted his Twitter account, but as the comedian told Howard Stern on Wednesday, it was just two months ago that he finally decided to apologize.

As Louis C.K. told it, Palin actually approached him at the afterparty for Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special to tell him she thought he was “terrific” and “really funny,” though it was unclear if she really knew who he was.

In response, Louis C.K. just said, “I owe you an apology,” telling Stern that he’s never before apologized for anything he’s said and “fuck anybody else who’s offended.” But now that he was face-to-face with Palin, he felt he needed to address the situation.

When he explained to her what he had done, Palin told him, “Well, you’re a vile person,” which made him laugh. Then she invited him to go fishing with her next time he’s in Alaska, which he said he would do in a heartbeat.

How foul were the tweets? Foul enough not to link to, which is plenty, plenty foul. Look ‘em up if you have the stomach. But you’re not missing anything except the utter degradation of humanity if you don’t.

Louis CK is but one man. A very disturbed man, obviously, but also a very successful man. The misogyny of those tweets would make Andrew Dice Clay blush. Yet he is admired and successful. I don’t pay him much mind, so I had forgotten his indecent, adolescent Twitter-burst.

Forget if a conservative comic—Dennis Miller, sort of—had said something even mildly critical of Nancy Pelosi or Hillary Clinton—we don’t even have to ask. But how could women of any political stripe not believe that his vile Twitter-rape of Sarah Palin—even Sarah Palin—was so wrong, so beyond any boundary, as to demand some sort of apology?

And yet for almost five years he hasn’t. Indeed, his “punishment” has been limited to a highly-regarded series on FX (rated 8.7 out of 10) for the past five years. Coincidentally.

That he finally said something, and said it in person, is worthy at least of comment. But it doesn’t excuse him. It only reminds us of the ugliness he once proudly boasted. And of the celebration on the Left his Satanic screeds uncorked. “Satanic” too strong? Not if you’ve read the tweets. It’s as if Linda Blair had had a Twitter account in The Exorcist.

Joe Biden Crashes the Oscars

I didn’t watch, but social media is agog:

The 61-year-old actor arrived to present at the 87th Academy Awards and saw his old Love Song for Bobby Long co-star Scarlett Johansson on the pre-Oscars red carpet. He wasn’t the only one; everyone spotted ScarJo as she and her plunging neckline posed for photos rocking a pompadour undercut, all but poured into a stunning forest-green Versace gown.

Travolta, who’s on the early promo trail for his April opener The Forger, moseyed on over. He approached the unwitting Johansson from behind and planted an unsolicited smooch on her cheek, sliding a hand upon her tiny, unprepared waist.

Johansson, consummate red-carpet pro that she is, never flinched. She barely registered the intrusion, although paparazzi lenses would capture a brief grimace in her smile in those few unforeseen seconds.

Of course she grimaced at being pawed by this louche lout. She’s a nice Jewish girl.

My New Year’s Resolution

NO MORE LENA DUNHAM!!!

Wish me luck.

J’Accuse!

I don’t accuse anyone, but something called Gawker does:

Dunham didn’t invent a rapist character out of thin air, as the conservative writers have implied. [No they didn’t. They just pointed out the obvious and libelous inconsistencies in her tale of woe.] The 2012 proposal for Not That Kind of Girl recounted the same night of unwanted unprotected sex—and supplied enough specific biographical detail to identify the man being described.

His name is Philip Samuel Ungar, a 2006 graduate of Oberlin. Now 30, he’s the son of former All Things Considered host and retired Goucher College president Sanford J. Ungar. Dunham has never explicitly named him, but his biography closely aligns with her characterization of her alleged rapist—“His father was actually the former host of NPR’s All Things Considered”—in an early draft of the chapter where she describes being assaulted.

The final manuscript of Not that Kind of Girl contains a significantly altered version of Dunham’s original account. It was this modified narrative, which used a new pseudonym for the alleged rapist (“Barry’), that jump-started a months-long effort to discredit Dunham’s claims.

Again, not the claims of rape, but the claim of rapist. She all but named someone who not only didn’t rape her, but didn’t know her. Indeed, she did name him—Barry, his real name. Some may have doubted her whole story, as riddled as it was with inaccuracies and seeming lies, but I stopped short of that. I believed that a woman could be a rape victim and still behave as irrationally as Dunham did. She might have to.

But instead of the token campus Republican (wrongly) fingered for the crime, it’s now a scion of that noble elm of the liberal establishment, National Public Radio. I remember Sanford Ungar. He partnered with Noah Adams, I believe, as the humorless, all-business antidote to Adams’s soft-spoken discursiveness. I never imagined the son of an All Things Considered host as an alleged rapist. But I’m pretty naive. For all I know, Renee Montagne’s aunt is an embezzler.

Dunham doesn’t want to go after the alleged rapist, whoever he was, for personal reasons I won’t question. She went out of her way, in fact, to disguise him—in the guise of a real person innocent of the crime. (But a Republican, so guilty of other, perhaps far worse, crimes, presumably.) But I’m glad we got to the bottom of the story. I hate to think of an alleged rapist on the loose, preying on other women. When I think of his alleged come-ons—“You want to meet Robert Krulwich? I can make that happen.”—I shudder and want to burn my tote-bag. God knows what Jim Lehrer is hiding in the bags under his eyes.

I just hope Lena Dunham has found some sort of peace after her unburdening. The rest of us can’t make heads or tails of it.

Look What the Hack Dragged In!

Today, for the first time in my adult life, I am proud of North Korea:

Hollywood film producer Scott Rudin and Sony Pictures Chair Amy Pascal have been further embarrassed by leaked emails released as a result of the Sony hack, this time mocking President Barack Obama in a set of racist email exchanges.

On the eve of a fundraising breakfast being attended by the President at the home of DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, Pascal and Rudin went over things she could discuss with Obama while at the event in October 2013.

‘Should I ask him if he liked DJANGO?’ Pascal asks Rudin, a reference to the 2012 Quentin Tarantino film Django Unchained that dealt with the subject of slavery in the antebellum South.

’12 years,’ responds Rudin, referencing another slavery film, this time Steve McQueen’s 2013 Academy Award-winning work 12 Years a Slave, a very violent and brutal look at the injustice and abuse endured by the millions forced into slavery in America.

The pair then keep going, listing as many current films starring black actors as they can name, including Lee Daniels’ The Butler and two Kevin Hart movies, Think Like a Man and Ride Along.
‘I bet he likes Kevin Hart,’ says Rudin at one point.

This all come just one day after Rudin called Angelina Jolie ‘a minimally talented spoiled brat’ in emails discussing who would direct her upcoming remake of the classic film flop Cleopatra.

Ok, so Rudin’s no dummy. We’ve determined that. But he and Pascal are committed Democrat donors, intimately involved with the Hollywood elite. Love it!

To say this is racist is absurd. Lots of people liked all of the movies they named, including lots of black people, I’ll wager. Their comments are indeed mocking, but since when has mocking the president been racist? Hollywood backed this turkey the way they backed Ishtar. Maybe this is how they react in private to backing a loser.

Justice4Barry!

Not to make light of a violent crime, but I’m starting to feel violated myself:

Following the book’s release, some publications, including conservative websites Breitbart and Nation Review, sought to identify the Oberlin alumnus who raped the writer, using details from the book to narrow down the list of possible attackers.

Both Brietbart and National Review were led by their research to a man named Barry, who was a prominent campus Republican when Dunham attended the institution. They looked for men named Barry, since Dunham did not explicitly state that the attacker’s name was changed, as she did for other stories in the book.

The man Breitbart identified as ‘Barry One’ (to protect his real name) vehemently denied ever meeting Dunham, and says his reputation has now been tarnished because of the book.

He told the National Review that the experience of being connected to the attack was the ‘most unfortunate coincidence of my life’.

But in the Buzzfeed article published Tuesday, Dunham confirmed that ‘Barry’ was not the name of her attacker, and that she’s sorry someone else has been falsely tied to the crime.

‘To be very clear, “Barry” is a pseudonym, not the name of the man who assaulted me, and any resemblance to a person with this name is an unfortunate and surreal coincidence. I am sorry about all he has experienced.’

Dunham went on to explain her reason for writing about the rape, saying she never meant for her rapist to be identified and she does not plan to press charges.

‘Speaking out was never about exposing the man who assaulted me. Rather, it was about exposing my shame, letting it dry out in the sun.

‘I did not wish to be contacted by him or to open a criminal investigation. I am in a loving and peaceful place in my life and I am not willing to sacrifice any more of it for this person I do not know, aside from one night I will never forget. That is my choice.’

We’re happy for you, Lena, much as we wish we’d never heard of you.

But…

You don’t explain why you all but named a real person in your exposing your shame. Actually, you did name a real person: the above campus Republican named Barry. You named him as your rapist. You named him not in anger or in haste, but in writing and in rewriting and in editing and in galleys and finally in print—and then even on audiobook! If we had the stomach, we could hear you name a very recognizable Barry (not least because he was named Barry) as your rapist in your own voice.

Only to say never mind? That when you named your brutal assailant “Barry”, and described someone by that name, you were just letting your shame dry out in the sun? No wonder your lawyers and your publisher’s lawyers moved your hand across the page to pen this cringe-inducing apologia. Talk about reckless disregard for the truth.

I believe Lena Dunham was raped—because she says so. And if she wants to let it go, so do I. It’s her unbelievably good fortune that Barry does too. Considering her career, the “kind of girl” she has been is lucky.

Not Fearing the Hashtag

Those leaked pictures of Obama working out were doubtless meant to terrify terrorists around the world. No more Mr. Nice Guy. From Community Organizer Man to the Ass Kicker.

The results are in:

Supporters of the Islamic extremist group ransacking Iraq were seen mocking the White House’s hashtag diplomacy with #bringbackourhumvee tweets early this morning.

Middle East and North America photo manager for the Agence France-Presse Patrick Baz said in a tweet that he had seen the #bringbackourhumvee meme on websites and twitter accounts supporting terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The hashtag is a play on the #bringbackourgirls campaign to rescue the 276 Nigerian girls being held captive in Nigeria by Islamic militant group Boko Haram.

The Nigerian girls never were rescued despite high profile displays of support for military intervention from the first lady and celebrities like Amy Poehler.

That’s how hardened and depraved these savages are. They are immune to the charms of Amy Poehler.

She looks pissed. Once you’ve lost Hollywood, Boko Haram, you’re days are numbered. I hear Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg are in development on a script. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya.

Really, Hugh? That might be the funniest pose you’ve ever taken. Well, second funniest:

Of Hashtags and Hijabs

Both are explicit attempts at fitting in, but only one has any force behind it.

And it ain’t the hastag:

Untitled

Especially the wrong hashtag!

Whew!

A Boko Haram video emerged Monday purportedly showing some of the kidnapped Nigerian girls in Muslim headdresses and the terror group’s leader declaring they have converted to Islam.

The video released by French news agency, Agence France-Presse, was shot in a nondescript area of a bush and showed about 100 girls.

In the 27-minute footage, the terror group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, says he’s willing to exchange the schoolgirls for Boko Haram prisoners.

It shows girls dressed in black and gray hijabs and reciting the Quran as they make Islamic declarations of faith. Shekau appears in a separate part of the video, but never with the girls.

“Praise be to Allah, the lord of the world,” the girls chant in the video.

The ball’s in your court, Kim Kardashian. What next, Sean Penn? My suggestion: if the girls are to be sold as slaves and child brides (no difference in that strain of Islam), all you smug celebs should drop your Sharpies and pick up your checkbooks and buy yourself a dozen Nigerian girls. What you do with them is your business… though you might want to take this advice:

There’s going to be a very angry 74-year-old toothless bachelor cotton farmer when someone retweets those pictures on Twitter. He paid good money ($1.25) for that girl!

Pink Floyd, Brown Shirt

I see Roger Waters has ripped the Rolling Stones for agreeing to play in Israel. Who cares, I know, But isn’t that Alice Walker’s job? Or does she only rip the American megastars who agree to perform for Jewish audiences? Or is it a black-white thing? Alice calls out Alicia Keys, Roger gets pasty Mick Jagger.

Like I said, who cares.

But why don’t Alice and Roger and Stephen (Hawking) and the other haters who would shun the Jewish people ever say a word about this?

Authorities in Hamas-run Gaza on Thursday executed two Palestinian Arabs for allegedly collaborating with Israel, the territory’s interior ministry said in a statement.

“Two collaborators with the Israeli occupation, condemned to death for having given information leading to the martyrdom of two citizens, have been executed,” a spokesman told AFP.

He said one of the men, aged 40 and identified by the initials ZR, was shot and the other, AK, aged 30, was hanged in a different location.

The last execution in Gaza, in October, was of a man found guilty of murder.

Under Palestinian law, collaboration with Israel, murder and drug trafficking are all punishable by death. All execution orders must be approved by the Palestinian leader before they can be carried out – but Hamas no longer recognizes the legitimacy of Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, whose four-year term ended in 2009.

Isn’t that the Arabs all over? The so-called Palestinians have an illegitimate government to represent an illegitimate people. (Show me the treaties declaring a state called Palestine—one not meant for the Jewish people—or show me some DNA that proves the existence of such a people. I’ve got plenty of treaties proving the existence of the Jewish state, some going back almost a hundred years—some thousands! I don’t believe the Jewish people are in question, by either the haters or the defenders.)

This is the best the liberal panty-waists can do:

Last June, Amnesty International appealed to people to mail Hamas in protest at the hanging of two alleged collaborators and to appeal against other pending executions.

The London-based rights organization called on people to “write immediately in Arabic or your own language condemning the executions… as applications of the ultimate form of cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment.”

And this is the worst:

“Abbas’s actions brought Hamas to power in Gaza and now it will rise to power in Judea and Samaria,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman warned Tuesday, stressing that “no matter when elections are, Hamas will win and take control of the Palestinian Authority.”

As Liberman later alluded, the European Union (EU) has dismissed those concerns based on its conviction that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, not Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, would remain in charge of a unity government.

“The EU expects any new government to uphold the principle of non-violence, to remain committed to achieving a two-state solution and to a negotiated peaceful settlement … including Israel’s legitimate right to exist,” EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton insisted last month.

“The fact that President Abbas will remain fully in charge of the negotiation process and have a mandate to negotiate in the name of all Palestinians provides further assurance that the peace negotiations can and must proceed.”

Who the hell is she to say so? Abbas is one lamb kebab away from an infarction, and the last election won by any self-identified Palestinian was won by Hamass. “No matter when elections are, Hamas will win and take control of the Palestinian Authority.” No [bleep]! Politics ain’t beanbag, Cathy honey. Hamass will make Abbas an offer he couldn’t refuse.

The (so-called) Palestinian (so-called) Authority has been without an elected leader for five years! The EU might just as well insist that Obama negotiate with Boris Yeltsin.

You Euro-weenies (and Ameri-weenies) don’t like Israel—message received, loud and clear. So, just leave her alone. Pick on someone else for a change, I don’t know, Togo. Oh wait, they’re black. How about Estonia? No, that’s Putin’s next target. Well, you got 140-something other countries to slander, it can’t be that hard.

Hollywood Discovers Intolerance

That’s a laugh. Intolerance is as old as Hollywood (get it?).

The blacklist in Hollywood used to be against leftists. That was wrong, even if the truth has been revealed that the Marxist dupes (Lenin’s “useful idiots”) were being consciously and unconsciously manipulated by Moscow. That blacklist lasted about 13 years, from 1947 to 1960.

What about the blacklist against conservatives? How long has that been going on? Question for another time.

Today, liberals join conservatives in condemning an entire culture:

The Beverly Hills Hotel has been a haven for Hollywood’s elite since 1912 — two years before the City of Beverly Hills was even created.

But now some stars are rushing for the exits.

On Monday, a number of celebrities took part in a demonstration across from the famed Sunset Boulevard lodge, protesting not the hotel but its ownership — an investment group controlled by the Sultan of Brunei.

In late April, the small Muslim nation on the northern coast of the island of Borneo implemented Sharia law, marked by strong punishments for those found guilty of homosexuality or adultery — including stoning the convicted to death. The law was praised by the sultan, who isn’t just the country’s ruler but also a major political and cultural figure.

“We’re just making people aware,” Jay Leno, who was among the demonstrators, told CNN.

“It’s not a political issue. This is not something that’s debatable. … It’s people being stoned to death,” he said.

Omigosh, that’s awful!

Why didn’t Hollywood tell us that Muslims could do such things?

[O]nce upon a time, Hollywood could make movies about the enemies of the United States and the free world.

But those days are gone. Today US political leaders believe there are no enemies, no war – just “overseas contingency operations” and “man-caused disasters.”

And, Hollywood is just as delusional. The California cowards are afraid to link Islam and terror and afraid to portray the horrors of fanatical Islamists who declared war on America over a decade ago.

Maybe someday Hollywood will wake up. We can hope.

RRRRRRING! I guess that’s Hollywood’s alarm going off.

[S]uch notables as Ellen DeGeneres and mogul Richard Branson have announced they won’t patronize the hotel or other properties in the Dorchester Collection of luxury hotels, which owns and manages the Beverly Hills Hotel and the Hotel Bel-Air.

“I won’t be visiting the Hotel Bel-Air or the Beverly Hills Hotel until this is resolved,” DeGeneres tweeted to her 28.8 million followers.

Resolved…meaning what? Until Islam embraces homosexuality and feminism? I got news for you, Ellen, sweetie, it ain’t just Brunei:

The 3rd US-Saudi Business Opportunities Forum set for Los Angeles is about a month away. This landmark three-day gathering, which builds on highly successful events in Chicago and Atlanta, will highlight the U.S.-Saudi commercial and trade relationship and how U.S. companies can participate in Saudi Arabia’s extraordinary economic growth as well as provide a unique platform for American and Saudi executives to establish new and lasting business ties.

Saudis? In Los Angeles? Did I miss that boycott?

With its central location in Downtown Los Angeles, the JW Marriott provides a deluxe level of comfort and personal service within a unique hotel environment designed to reflect its location. Guests enjoy convenient access to LA, whether visiting the revitalized downtown area or other parts of the city.

The property features 100,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space in Downtown Los Angeles and serves as the headquarter hotel for the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The JW Marriott shares space with The Ritz-Carlton, Los Angeles, and The Ritz-Carlton Residences at L.A. LIVE in a distinctive 54-story tower designed by Gensler.

That was just last summer. And Hollywood was silent. Better late than never, I guess. We conservatives welcome our SoCal cousins to the censorious side of the street. We’ve been calling out Islam—some of us, anyway, calling out some Muslims—for over a decade, with nothing but silence or scorn from your lot. Come on in, the holy water’s fine.

Now, can you have a word with that other pillar of liberalism, academia?

A Saudi prince has donated $20 million each to Harvard University and Georgetown University to advance Islamic studies and further understanding of the Muslim world.

Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Alsaud — whom Forbes magazine ranks as the fifth wealthiest person in the world, with assets worth $23.7 billion — is the nephew of Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah.

“Bridging the understanding between East and West is important for peace and tolerance,” Alwaleed said in a statement released by Harvard.

At Harvard, the money will fund four new senior staff professorships as well as an endowed chair in the name of the 48-year-old billionaire.

While we’re speaking of Islamofascists and the Ivy League:

ranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Monday questioned why Iran can’t have a nuclear program when the United States has one, repeated his inference that historical accounts of the Holocaust are myths, and denied that there are homosexuals in Iran.

“In Iran we don’t have homosexuals like in your country,” he said, to laughter and boos from the audience. ‘In Iran we do not have this phenomenon. I don’t know who’s told you that we have this.”

But enough of pointing out the Left’s hypocrisies. We’d be here all day.

Christopher Cowdray, the Dorchester Collection’s CEO, said the celebrities and groups protesting are taking out their anger on the wrong place.
“The actions they’re taking are unfounded,” he said.

“It’s going to hurt our employees and this has nothing to do with them whatsoever,” he said. “It’s not their fight.”

The sultan has owned the Beverly Hills Hotel since 1987. The Dorchester Collection was established in 1996 to oversee that hotel and others in its luxury portfolio, including the Hotel Bel-Air, Paris’ Plaza Athenee and London’s Dorchester.

Cowdray said that celebrities wanting to influence politics in Brunei would be better off lobbying the U.S. State Department to take action.

That’s ridiculous. Whom does Hollywood know in Washington, DC?

Baby Boob Job Will Live!

We’re delighted to hear that the Big Brother baby will be a little brother (or sister):

Josie Cunningham, the notorious NHS boob job mum, has decided not to abort her unborn baby in her quest for fame.

The 23-year-old caused outrage last week when she claimed she would undergo the procedure in order to appear on Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother.

“But I have four endorsement deals in the pipeline including one for a dating site and there are other TV opportunities coming in too.

“I’ll still do whatever it takes to achieve my goal and being a mum isn’t going to get in my way.

Cunningham made the decision to keep her baby after she felt it kick for the first time.

The former escort is unsure who the father of the baby is but claimed one candidate – an unnamed Premier League footballer – had offered to pay for the abortion privately.

What possible “goals” could she have after being an “escort” and receiving free knockers courtesy of the UK taxpayers? The girl thinks big (in more ways than one). We’re certain that the 23-year-old mother (going on 43 from the looks of her) will make a lovely…mother.

At least she chose real “reproductive health”, and not the euphemism peddled by the pro-abortion crowd.

PS: If the baby has such a big kick that it changed her mind, my money is on the “unnamed Premier League footballer.”
