As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Wire:
An intersectionality fight broke out on Thursday night when vocal Trump-hating actress Bette Midler lost her mind over the likely confirmation of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, posting that women are the “n-words of the world.”
“Women, are the n-word of the world,” wrote Midler in a now-deleted tweet. “Raped, beaten, enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals; denied education and inheritance; enduring the pain and danger of childbirth and life IN SILENCE for THOUSANDS of years[.] They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.”
When doubling-down on the sentiment of the tweet, Midler claimed she was quoting Yoko Ono.
“I gather I have offended many by my last tweet. ‘Women are the…etc’ is a quote from Yoko Ono from 1972, which I never forgot,” she wrote in another now-deleted tweet. “It rang true then, and it rings true today, whether you like it or not. This is not about race, this is about the status of women; THEIR HISTORY.”
Midler was swarmed with criticism until she eventually tapped out in submission and offered an apology. Here are some of those angry messages directed at the lefty actress (h/t Huffington Post):

This is why we can't have nice things. Black women were literally and LEGALLY property. Fact: Many white women owned/abused slaves right along with their husbands. Ever seen a lynching picture? Guess what you don't see: White women crying. Respect American History. @BetteMidler pic.twitter.com/AixOFYXYu8

Please don’t appropriate the racism Black people experience.
Sexism is bad enough as it is.
Racism is a different bad thing.
Some people experience both.
And this is a very bad tweet.

@BetteMidler I see you have decided to double-down on this insensitive, ridiculous madness. Your arrogance and deliberate disregard for the experiences of Black women and by extension The Black community as a whole is breath-taking. Your privilege is showing! https://t.co/yUNGB69WUx

The apology came later that night, and a declaration of allyship was naturally included.
“The too brief investigation of allegations against Kavanaugh infuriated me. Angrily I tweeted [without] thinking my choice of words would be enraging to black women who doubly suffer, both by being women and by being black,” Midler said. “I am an ally and stand with you; always have. And I apologize.”

Kavanugh will likely be confirmed on Saturday, but hopefully we get a few more intersectionality fights before the bell rings.
Huffington Post has more on this
Actress and singer Bette Midler is acting a little scary, and it’s not because of the “Hocus Pocus” reruns.
The 72-year-old star on Thursday shared an awful take on feminism with an equally awful song title.
“Women, are the n-word of the world,” Midler tweeted. “Raped beaten, enslaved, married off, worked like dumb animals … They are the most disrespected creatures on earth.”
She defended her problematic message two more times before deleting the tweet altogether and apologizing a few hours later.
The tone-deaf tweets frightened her fans.
Midler was actually quoting the title of a 1972 song written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, which was just as problematic then as it is now.
Unamused, thousands of people replied to Midler pointing out what should’ve been obvious: It is not OK for her, a white woman (or any non-black woman, for that matter) to use that word.
People also stressed that the struggle of white women can’t be compared to the history of racism, violence and systematic oppression that black women have faced, which her tweet (perhaps unwittingly) erased.
After thousands tried to educate Midler, the actress doubled down on her use of the quote before deleting both tweets altogether.
She acknowledged in a follow-up tweet that her message “offended many” but defended it by noting that it was originally spoken by Yoko Ono, “which I never forgot.”
“It rang true then, and it rings true today, whether you like it or not,” she wrote. “This is not about race, this is about the status of women; THEIR HISTORY.”
Midler’s defense of the quote inflamed people even more.
State Sen. Nina Turner (D-Ohio) told Midler that her white woman privilege was showing.
Rapper Talib Kweli Greene reminded her that “black women exist” and “are treated like niggers. You are not,” he tweeted to her. “Please stop erasing black women. Thank you.”
Then Midler appeared to push the issue even further by tweeting a link to a New Yorker article reporting that the FBI would be ignoring the testimony of the former classmates of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.
In an appeal to the people she offended, Midler blamed her random outburst on the FBI’s brief and limited investigation into the sexual assault claim made against Kavanaugh by Christine Blasey Ford.
The actress said she shared her thoughts on women “angrily” and acknowledged that black women “doubly suffer, both by being women and being black.”
“I am an ally and stand with you; always have,” she wrote. “And I apologize.”

Kurt Russel SHOWED Overpaid Celebs To Shut Up About Trump – Hits Them Where It Hurts!
Since the second that Donald Trump was declared as our next president, liberals have not stopped complaining about the outcome, even after more than a year with him in the White House. The despicable display reached the height of annoyance during every ego-stroking awards ceremony since President Trump was elected. All have turned into a Trump-trashing session for pissed of celebrities to get far too much off their chest about our unapologetic leader.
However, not everyone in Hollywood shares the same opinion as the most outspoken offender, Meryl Streep, as Kurt Russell just showed her and all of Trump’s other famous foes that it’s time to shut up about our president.
If you haven’t heard much from Russell lately, it’s because he falls into the rare category of celebrities who isn’t crying over Hillary Clinton’s loss and doesn’t feel that he needs to make his political opinions known. He’s simply doing what he’s paid well to do and wishes others in the biz would too. Since they continue to throw tantrums and trash Trump on a public stage, Russell reached his breaking point and finally fired back hard.
“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent,” Russell began in his blistering beratement of these overpaid crybabies after what Streep said at the Golden Globes. “I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,” he added, as reported by the American Lookout. “But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care,” he said before dropping a brutal announcement on these Streep and her lemmings that left them burning.
Explaining that they’re not empowered in this business by their disgraceful attitudes against our leaders, the badass actor said they better be prepared to put their money where their nasty mouths are since they could be out of work. “People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”
Kurt has said recently that “the last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political,” which he just proved by clearly pointing out that nobody cares what celebrities have to say about politics, and that their obnoxious behavior only shows how unemployable they are. They need to just stick to what they are overpaid to do and leave the rest to the adults in charge.
‘First Man’ Crashes In The Box Office Following Flag Controversy
Hollywood never seems to learn. It is not smart to piss off the American people. Leftists are always wanting to rewrite history. No more supporting these types of movies.
Let them fail. They don’t deserve your money. The left hates America. It continues to show every day.
By the way, Ryan Gosling.. It was an American achievement.
From The Daily Wire:
“First Man,” the Neil Armstrong biopic about the 1969 moon landing, failed to blast off in the box office weekend following a heated controversy over director Damien Chazelle’s decision to omit the astronaut’s planting of the American flag on the lunar surface.
“The visceral historical drama got grounded in its domestic debut with $16.5 million, despite positive reviews,” The Hollywood Reporter reports. Internationally, “First Man” performed even worse, earning just $8.6 million in 22 markets. With a production price tag of $70 million plus another $50 to $100 million in marketing costs, the film could be a major loss for Universal Pictures.
Despite the poor numbers, Universal has expressed confidence the film will perform well over time after getting major boosts this coming awards season, during which it is expected to be nominated for various top prizes.
“Our core audience, adult males, don’t necessarily run out on opening weekend,” says Jim Orr, Universal’s president of domestic distribution. “We’ll have a great run for weeks and months to come.”
Though critics have heaped praise upon the film with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 88%, audiences have been less enthusiastic. It holds just a 7.7 rating on IMDB with a B+ audience rating on CinemaScore. On Rotten Tomatoes, the audience rating was even worse at just 60%.
In fairness to Orr, his projection that “First Man” could pull in big numbers over time is not without precedent. Both “Bridge of Spies” and “Argo” debuted to dismal box office receipts but went on to gross well past the $150 million mark during awards season. The big BUT to that, however, is that none of those films were dogged by the same controversy “First Man” stepped into the moment its star Ryan Gosling said the American flag planting was intentionally omitted.
“I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that’s how we chose to view it,” Gosling said of the decision.
After hearing of this, Buzz Aldrin, the second man to walk on the moon, blasted the film, prompting a fierce backlash. Since no evidence currently exists that the controversy is spurring the bad performance, time will tell if the critical success of “First Man” will propel it to financial success.”
