We all know that you know who is a sore loser. It’s one thing if one is playing a board game or joining friends for a casual game of football or basketball. It is another thing entirely to hold a country hostage.
Back in November, no one was surprised that you know who took an adult temper tantrum. Claiming that he, not Joe Biden was the winner, the lie that there was massive voter fraud spread like wildfire across the country.
Now it appears that even some of his most staunch supporters are telling him to cool it. Pat Robertson, Geraldo Rivera, and the NY Post have advised you know who to concede.
It’s nice to see that at least some people are opening their eyes.
We all know that Biden won. The accusations of voter fraud are at best baseless and at worst, goes against what it means to be an American. We don’t have to like or even agree with the results of any political election. But at the end of the day, we have to move on. We cannot let this fraudulent idea destroy the United States. If we do, everything we have worked for, voted for, and died for means nothing.
The not so honorable list of prominent men accused of sexual assaulting and/or sexually harassing their female colleagues has grown to include two more: Garrison Keillor and Geraldo Rivera.
Garrison Keillor is the founder of A Prairie Home Companion. Broadcasting since 1974, the show has become a staple of public radio. After it was discovered that Keillor crossed the line with a colleague, he was fired and A Prairie Home Companion was removed from the channel’s lineup.
Geraldo Rivera has been a journalist and talk show host for many years. Recently Bette Midler accused him of sexual misconduct in the 1970’s.
I get it that firing these men, especially at this point in time is necessary. A message needs to be sent that such actions are not ok and there will be consequences for those who do act in such a manner. But at some point, the firing is going to be counterproductive. I just feel like for now, there is no choice but to fire these men. If they are not fired, the problem will continue and it simply can’t.
This hobby blog is dedicated to movie nerdom, nostalgia, and the occasional escape. In the late 90s, I worked at Blockbuster Video where they let me take home two free movies a day. I caught up on the classics and wrote movie reviews for Denver 'burbs newspapers and magazines. Today, I continue to revisit the old and discover the new on the screen. Comments and dialogue are highly encouraged. This year, I'm excited to collaborate with other writers via SLICETHELIFE, in which we will share our movie genre favorites in our 2021 Movie Draft!
