Father of the Year (Bill Clinton) Meets Claire Danes in "Special Room" Backstage at Golden Globes
Rush Limbaugh ^ | 1/15/13

Posted on 01/15/2013 1:02:11 PM PST by drewh

Anyway, Bill Clinton, as you know, was at the Golden Globes, and he was backstage asking actresses to meet him in a special room. We know this because the actress Claire Danes, she won the Golden Globe for best actress in a drama. She was on Access Hollywood, one of our favorite shows here at the EIB Network. You don't miss it. The host, Billy Bush, Access Hollywood, said to Claire Danes, "You came straight back here, you haven't stopped anywhere since you got the award? We're your first stop, right?"

DANES: President Bill Clinton asked if I would come and meet him in some special room, so I just hung out with Bill Clinton. That's where I came from.

BUSH: What kind of room was it? (laughter)

DANES: (laughing) Uhhhh, actually, he was talking to Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, and I thought, wow!

RUSH: Well, so Billy Bush was not her first stop. The secret room, special room with the Father of the Year, Bill Clinton.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Claire Danes of Homeland said this about meeting Bill Clinton after the Golden Globes, and I quote: "I was very touched." I'll bet she was. In that secret room. I'll bet she was "touched."

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Now, I cracked a little joke. I'm trying to remember that people just do not get jokes, particularly in the media, people on the left. Those who would qualify as my critics literally have no sense of humor. I am sure that an innocent little laugh line probably just royally offended a bunch of people who are now on the warpath writing that I am a sexist, misogynist, extremist, kook all because I said that Claire Danes was asked about her meeting with Bill Clinton after the Golden Globes, and I quoted her.

She said, "I was very touched."

And I said, "I'll bet she was!"

Now, normal people would laugh themselves comfortably over that.

The righteously indignant and the perpetually offended, of course, will be mad, angry, and upset, in addition to offended. So I want to give you the full Claire Daines quote here and put it in a little context. Claire Danes said, "[H]e very sweetly said that he appreciated how the character is kind of shedding light on mental illness, which is still a taboo subject. So, that was very flattering and I was very touched." We strive to be fair here and balanced in our approach at the EIB Network, and I wanted to give you the full Claire Danes quote in a fair, balanced, and unthreatening way.

END TRANSCRIPT

I have a "special room" for Willy.

I can show it to him any time he likes.

Leave the SS at home, though.

Without going into a possible libel suit, I know Claire.

she’s a member of the Communist Party. If an Admin needs to delete this post, I will have no objection. But I think people should know that the CPUSA has a complete grip on our Nation.

I like Rush’s joke at the end of hour 2.

Rush: A newsreporter at the Golden Globes asks Bill Clinton, “How is Hillary’s head?”

Bill Clinton: “Not as good as ... “

Rush: “Sorry folks were out of time.”

It's been that way almost since the very beginning of Communism.

The cinema's great potential for persuasion excited Joseph Stalin and the Communist Party of the United States of America (CPUSA), which Stalin controlled. "One of the most pressing tasks confronting the Communist Party in the field of propaganda," wrote the indefatigable Comintern agent Willi Muenzenberg in a 1925 Daily Worker article, "is the conquest of this supremely important propaganda unit, until now the monopoly of the ruling class. We must wrest it from them and turn it against them." It was an ambitious task, but conditions would soon turn to the party's advantage.

The Great Depression convinced many that capitalism was on its last legs and that socialism was the wave of the future. In the days of the Popular Front of the mid-1930s, communists found it easy to make common cause with liberals against Germany's Hitler and Spain's Franco. In 1935, V.J. Jerome, the CPUSA's cultural commissar, set up a Hollywood branch of the party. This highly secretive unit enjoyed great success, recruiting members, organizing entire unions, raising money from unwitting Hollywood liberals, and using those funds to support Soviet causes through front groups such as the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League. "We had our own sly arithmetic, we could find fronts and make two become one," remembered screenwriter Walter Bernstein in his 1996 autobiography, Inside Out.

During the period of the Nazi-Soviet Pact, actor Melvyn Douglas and screenwriter-director Philip Dunne proposed that the Motion Picture Democratic Committee, a conclave of industry Democrats, condemn Stalin's 1939 invasion of Finland. But the group was actually secretly dominated by communists, and it rejected the resolution. As Dunne later described it in his 1980 memoir, Take Two: A Life in Movies and Politics, "All over town the industrious communist tail wagged the lazy liberal dog."
