Meryl Streep slams Walt Disney as racist, anti-Semitic
CBS ^ | Jan 8 2014 | CBS

Posted on 01/08/2014 8:15:59 PM PST by WilliamIII

Meryl Streep had some choice words to say about Walt Disney during remarks she made Tuesday at an awards gala where she was honoring "Saving Mr. Banks" star Emma Thompson.

The "August: Osage County" star called out Disney as both sexist and anti-Semitic while presenting the best actress prize to Thompson at the National Board of Review awards in New York.

Why do Hollyweirdo’s always have to mouth off? Can’t they just shut up and read their lines?

The “anti-Semitic” group Streep she is referring to is the anti-communist Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals. It actually included a number of Jews as members and officers, including Morrie Ryskind and Ayn Rand.

Then and now liberals referred to it as anti-Semitic, and it does appear that a small (probably very small) number of its members were anti-Semitic. But the organization itself took no stands that could conceivably be called anti-Semitic.

One would think that after her ignorant Alar flub Meryl Streep would have learned to STFU. But that would require character and some measure of class, which clearly doesn’t exist amongst most Hollywoodiots anymore.

Hollywood is the most sexist place in the world, but that doesn’t stop her from working there.

I’ve always thought this woman was physically ugly (and she’s become more so as she’s aged). Never knew till now, her soul was ugly too.

Why do Hollyweirdo’s always have to mouth off?

Because they despise Walt Disney’s wholesome brand of entertainment.

Walt Disney was a genius whereas Meryl Streep is a under-talented, over-rated HAM.

I’m talking about Walt Disney the man. He produced wholesome entertainment, and that’s why today’s corrupt Hollywood filthmeister hate him and take every opportunity to smear him.

Most of Hollywood produced pretty friendly stuff back in his day. Sure there was the exploitation circuit but they weren’t all that big.

She’s behind on the times. The Muslims are the new ‘in’ crowd, and their opinion about women and Jews, well...you know.

Let’s put it this way. There are some that would not be adverse to seeing Meryl Streep in a Burka.

I think she just missed being ugly but still is just plain looking. I have read enough on Walt Disney to know he was a decent man. Much more decent than most in the industry.

Communist propaganda against Walt Disney was maybe more than against anyone else ever.

Smear upon smear.

Goes back to a strike against his studio in 1940.

I once saw a couple of pictures taken from the stage at the Academy Awards. There were thousands of people in the audience and all of them were white! Hmmm.

Remember when the political correctness inc. attacked NASCAR because there were no black race car drivers and all the audience was white? Hypocrisy thy name is Hollywood.

EVERYTHING Walt produced was family-friendly. That’s what he was known for. (And for opposing communism). Those are the two reasons the skanks, pimps, and communists of today’s Hollywood hate him.

Great points!

This Hollywood thinks it Holywood when it comes to libtard issues, but actresses and actors are some of the least informed people on earth.

They’re readers of lines written by others. Period.

If Walt was still making movies and rolls were available the ugly bitch would be offering to give him a “monica”.

Yes we’ve seen how evil Walt was. When he was alive the most offensive thing he did was Bambi. But thank God liberals took over that company and gave us lovely drug addled skanks like Miley Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears for all the children to look up to.

I watched her movie when she played Maggie Thatcher. I'll never forgive her or anyone involved with that, what a hatchet job they did on the iron lady.

These people are shameless. Despicable trash.

They’re all phony as hell. And Streep is one of the worst. In this new movie with Julia “big mouth” Roberts she speaks the line “You look like a lesbian.” And it’s obvious her character does not like lesbos. (I saw the trailer. I don’t go to movies.)

I will always regret that I watched that horrid hit piece.
I am in full agreement with you.
Worst casting job ever.
I knew ahead of time what to expect, and I wasn’t disappointed, just horrified and thoroughly disgusted.

I heard her in Dallas once after she was PM, she was great. Passionate, articulate, and relentless.

Sharp, deadly, should have given lessons to our current GOP on how to fight.

I had no idea the movie would do what it did, both LL and I were disgusted.

I knew the movie would be a “disappointment” because of Streep, and then came the disastrous script.

Is this an image of a Streep selfie?

Who knew that Streep was a Jew-hater?

Lemme see now - - - racist, Jew-hater, chick-flick - - - - ?

Is there ANY redeeming quality to this movie?

Must be as the non-reacist, Jewish-friendly, feminist, PC, Leftstream, Hollywood Pros have already given out four awards to this movie.

Go figure!

From what I’ve seen Streep only ever plays one character. She’s the same in every film. That’s not acting.

Yep, we were very lucky, and proud to hear such a stalwart for freedom. RR's right hand. No one has touched the two of them in greatness since then.

Streep can go where the sun don't shine as far as I'm concerned.....wait.....wait.....

She doesn't have to move a bit! Her head is already stuck there......
