Eight Celebs that Helped Raise $60M for the IDF Right Before It Launched an Attack on Gaza

The Hollywood minor celebrities giving money to Israel’s genocidal military.

 

Ashton Kutcher | A superstar who rose to fame from the hit TV series That 70s Show and now peddles cameras, Ashton Kutcher proudly attended November’s Friends of the IDF event.

Andy Garcia | Andy Garcia has a long history of supporting reactionary forces in his home country of Cuba, where his family of business owners fled after the beginning of the revolution and failed Bay of Pigs operation. Today, Garcia supports Israel’s imperialist military-industrial complex occupying Palestine.

Fran Drescher | American icon and “activist” Fran Drescher can be spotted in pictures from the event rocking a peace sign. Gaza, however, experiences anything but peace.

David Foster | Prominent Canadian singer David Foster proudly attended the event in support of Israeli occupation.

Gerard Butler | In a twist of fate, Gerard Butler’s Malibu home was destroyed by the California wildfires this week. Quite ironic considering that Butler supports the forced removal of Palestinians from their homes and subsequent destruction.

Pharrell Williams | Pharrell Williams provided entertainment for the event. His hit song “Happy” added a disturbing tone to a gala celebrating 70 years of brutal Israeli military occupation and oppression.

Ziggy Marley | Ziggy Marley, son of the late reggae icon Bob Marley, proudly attended the gala, which raised a staggering $60M to support causes relating to the IDF.

Katharine McPhee | The American singer and actress, who rose to fame thanks to her participation on American Idol and her role in the House Bunny, attended the FIDF gala.

Dave Chappelle’s Defense of Louis C.K.

Has Dave lost his mind? Is this quote accurate?

“If the system is corrupt then the people who adhere to the system . . . are not criminals. They are victims.”
-Dave Chapelle

Great ironic joke, or terrible, terrible bit of apologetics. The victimizer is equated with the victim BECAUSE HE GOT CAUGHT!

What the fuck are you smoking, Chapelle?

Blame “the system.” Everybody’s to blame, and nobody’s to blame. That “corrupt” system handed Dave tens of millions of dollars, and so let that simmer…

Twenty years ago, in Moscow, Matt Taibbi was a misogynist asshole—and possibly worse

The piece skewers Taibbi for his sexual abuse of women in Russia. My beef with Taibbi is strictly about him taking it upon himself to propagandize about 9/11 for money, which I will have to go into at a later time. He was wrong, of course, and a fucking asshole propped up by the for-profit press to lie and spin the 9/11 cover-up.

Kevin Spacey also gets some unwanted limelight today…

‘I Love You, Daddy’ trailer faces backlash amid Harvey Weinstein scandal

Reading the complaints and then actually watching the trailer leaves me in a state of cognitive dissonance.

 

The movie is quite tepid and seems to resemble Woody Allen’s stylistic trappings. It could be an amusing satire, but the Weinstein situation has made the world lose its mind, and people are freaking out.

Odd that film people are criticizing the “timing” when it takes a year or two to bring something to the screen. For fuck’s sake. Looks like I need to check this one out.
