Skip to comments.The Stupidity of Sally Field’s No Wars If Moms Ruled the World Claim
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?
Just shutup & act Sally.
But every 28 days there would be real heavy negotiating. - Robin Williams
She said G. D. . . .
Not that I watched her show before, but now, I certainly won’t, ever.
How ‘bout just shut up Sally.
Islamic mothers are proud of their little martyrs. They send them into battle.
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.
“Hell hath no fury like that of a woman”
maybe she meant “mothers” like “nuns”. ;op
Not to mention that women tend to hold grudges longer then men, and over smaller things.
“But every 28 days there would be real heavy negotiating. - Robin Williams”
that is solid gold. lmao
Bouddica, Cleopatra, Zenobia of Palmyra. The Dowager Empress of the Manchus and the Boxer Rebellion. And Queen Victoria presided over quite a few as well.
Or as Clapton sings, lay down sally.
If we had leaders with her attitude, the world would be enslaved to those who would use aggressive force to get their way.
Sally could stand to crack a history book or two. She might start with Catherine the Great, Maria Theresa, and Elizabeth I.
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.
Maybe Sally should pick up a newspaper other than Variety sometime.
n., pl. idiot savants.
An intellectually disabled person who exhibits extraordinary ability in a highly specialized area, such as mathematics or music (or acting).
[French : idiot, idiot + savant, learned.]
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
Not so sure about that, Sally. Some women will simply jack you up if you P them O.
No, not Sister Bertrille.
In Hollywood, people dress up and get on stage to say stupid things to the whole world, then get applause for it.
More wars would be personal. Women tend to take things like criticism or needling very personally, and with PMS.....
Sally Field, updated: You don’t like me, you really don’t like me . . .
What a serious twinkie.
I am NEVER going to forgive you for saying that.
What an idiot. These folks who know absolutely nothing about the world, amaze me that they get an audience to hear their political wisdom.
The IQ of Hollywood celebrities is best displayed by their very own flying nun!!!!
“...if the mothers ruled the war(world?), there would be no (expletive) wars in the first place,”
Nice bumper sticker but totally meaningless in the real world... sort of like Hollywood and the opinions of actors.
Next time there is an attack Silly Sally dont come running to this mother...yep we are like elephants ..we have long memories, and I will show you what mothers are really capable of.
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.
Does anyone even watch the Emmy’s? I sure don’t waste time watching the Hollyweird types patting each other on the back.
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.
Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher would disagree with you, Sally, you stupid actress..............
She used to be such a nice person. Now she’s proved herself to be just another foul-mouthed Hollywood sycophant.
If women are so nice and giving and selfless and peace-loving, then why have I had so many bad experiences with women friends? Men are so much easier to get along with!
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?)
Thus, as with most of the Hollyflakes, she doesn't understand that it's
"Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt"
She is ignorant of the facts, but there are so many like her in Hollywood that she will probably get another award for it.
>> Just shutup & act Sally.
She can’t ... shut up ... or act.
For Sally Field, its all been downhill since Smokey and the Bandit.
Evita Peron? Imelda Marcos? Any of the British queens that attacked France and other points of interest?
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.
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*
