The Stupidity of Sally Field’s No Wars If Moms Ruled the World Claim
NewsBusters ^ | 9/17/07 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 09/17/2007 11:33:53 AM PDT by teddyballgame

Sure, it was just an acceptance speech at some silly awards ceremony. However, when Hollywoodans say ridiculous things on television that media applaud along with the Hollywoodans in attendance, someone's got to point out the inanity.

As such, when Sally Field said at Sunday's Emmy awards ceremony as reported by the MRC's Tim Graham, "And, let's face it, if the mothers ruled the war, there would be no (expletive) wars in the first place," I can't sit idly by without contesting such nonsense.

After all, it appears Field has never heard of some famous female leaders who brought their nation's to war:

I beg to differ with Sally. Hell hath no fury like that of a woman scorned.

Isn’t she the one who gurgled “You like me! You really like me!” at the Academy awards?

Not that I watched her show before, but now, I certainly won’t, ever.

If Sally was bright enough to have smart people around her to do damage control for her idiotic statement she would issue an apology within 24 hours.

WHY, First because she was WRONG, second, she used the Lord’s name in vain.

The problem is she is a typical hollyweird idiot who probably isn’t sorry, doesn’t realize she was wrong, and even if she did she would not apologize to America.

If we had leaders with her attitude, the world would be enslaved to those who would use aggressive force to get their way.

Hmmm - but mothers like her will kill their unborn baby without even an after thought and sleep well at night...seems to me the same kind of people that would order troops into war without an after thought too...

Everytime one of these dolts decides to opine instead of simply say “thank you” I discover that the stupidity I assumed was rampant in Hollywood is actually a prerequisite to residence.

As I posted on another thread, maybe she should talk to the "palestinian" mothers whose proudest moment is when when of their offspring blows themself up along with innocent people and who offer up any remaining spawn to do the same.

Maybe Sally should pick up a newspaper other than Variety sometime.

Yep. This notion that women are less aggressive than men is belied by reality.

Everyone says stupid things sometimes.

In Hollywood, people dress up and get on stage to say stupid things to the whole world, then get applause for it.

Nice bumper sticker but totally meaningless in the real world... sort of like Hollywood and the opinions of actors.

If women ruled the world, there would be so much back-stabbing, bickering, gossip, mean, false accusations that wars would break out anyway, and be twice as brutal as they are now.

Queen Elizabeth I kicked Spanish @ss. Of course, strictly speaking she never had any children, but she was one mean mother.

And then there was her sister, Bloody Mary.

Eleanor of Aquitaine led troops in battle.

She would of done fine if she just would of stopped after her first applause line when she was dedicating the award to mothers who were waiting for their children to come home from war - but then she just lost it after that.

The women in Islam have allowed their children to blow up like daddy. All the men pretty much abuse the women in that culture as well. There are no mothers with power in the Middle East Sally.

We have a problem in a war with radical Islam, so until Sally Field can figure a way to domesticate Islam to passivity, her statement was nothing but liberal serving BS.

She should stick to hemroid commercials IMO.

She attended Birmingham High School in Van Nuys, California. (High school drop out?)

Mothers in ancient Sparta would tell their sons going off to war to return with their shields or on it. In other words, either fight with ferocity and hold on to your shield until the fight is over or be dragged home on it dead. Dropping the shield to escape in retreat would be a disgrace worse than death to those moms.

Hollywoodans

I believe the correct term is "Hollywoodheads." Other acceptable terms include "Hollyweeds", "Hollow-woods", or "Hollyweirds". The jury still has not ruled on "Self-Absorbed Producer Puppets" or "Hack-tors."

Heh. She’s never seen a mother defending her kids, has she? Remember that wonderful cartoon drawing of a pistol-toting, pissed-off Statue of Liberty just after 9/11...”the most dangerous place in the world is between a mother and her children”?

Yeah, Sally, there wouldn’t be any wars. Except for one week a month. And if they all synchronized... *shudder*
