From Michele Hickford:
(ALLENBWEST) – Have they all lost their freaking minds? Yes, apparently they have.
As we saw on Sunday at the Golden Globes (or didn’t see, if you couldn’t be bothered to tune it in), liberals often use awards shows not to graciously accept the honors bestowed upon them, but to use the few moments on camera when they don’t have to speak someone else’s lines to speak their own.
What generally gurgles forth is liberal whiney grandstanding as was the case with Meryl Streep and her attacks on Donald Trump.
But it’s not just the liberal folks on stage berating the rest of us deplorables who might be watching or maybe even buying tickets to their films (not so sure, after THAT latest performance).
Liberals are now on a mission to find any scintilla of bigotry from anyone even remotely connected to Donald Trump.
Like children who imagine a monster in every closet, liberals are now seeing RACISM everywhere they look.
As Heat Street reports, Social justice warriors were always going to be hard on Sylvester Stallone’s presenting appearance at the Golden Globe Awards since he recently tweeted support for Donald Trump and was a guest at his New Year’s Eve party at Mar-a-Lago.
So it proved. Stallone reunited with Rocky co-star Carl Weathers to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the iconic boxing movie when they presented the last Golden Globe of the night, the Best Motion Picture-Drama award to African-American drama Moonlight.
Sly Stallone let Weathers announce the winner. Happens all the time at movie awards ceremonies. One guy speaks, then hands over to his co-presenter to announce who won.
Except this time around, Stallone is weirdly being accused of racism since he let his black friend and co-star Weathers, who played Apollo Creed in the Rocky films, read out that Moonlight — made by a black filmmaker with a predominantly black cast — had won the Golden Globe.
One would think the person who gets to announce the winner has the cooler part of the presenting duties. And certainly Stallone has had more than his share of award show appearances, so it would make sense he’d give Weathers the honor this time, right?
WRONG! To liberals, that’s RACIST.

Did anyone notice it looked like Sylvester Stallone was disgusted at the thought of naming MOONLIGHT as the BEST Film Winner#GoldenGlobes

Stallone passing envelope to Weathers was telegraphing #Moonlight win but also revealing an insidious act. Am I the only one who noticed?

As soon as Stallone said “you got this” to Carl Weathers I knew Moonlight won. Was Sly racist for doing that #GoldenGlobes

Y’all notice that Stallone (A Trump Supporter) didn’t want to say that Moonlight won… just an observation

Sure would be nice to call a national “time out” on all this foolishness, but it seems likely we’re going to be dealing with this crap from the left for a very long time.
At least it’s entertaining.
