What Actress Kristen Bell is Saying About ‘Snow White’ and Consent is Truly Absurd

This is a real head scratcher.

Published

It seems as if this is the week for Hollywood actresses to try and solidify their street credibility with the feminist crowd by setting their sights on Disney princesses, bashing the legendary stars of these classic animated tales for not promoting “female empowerment.”

The first actress to do so was Keira Knightley who said she has banned the well known films “Cinderella” and “The Little Mermaid” for her three-year-old daughter, accusing the movies of sending “false messages on female empowerment.” Yeah, if you’re not sure what exactly she’s getting at here, don’t worry. You’re not alone.

Joining Knightley in her crusade is “Frozen” actress Kristen Bell, who put “Snow White” on blast because she didn’t give the prince consent to kiss her. Isn’t it kind of hard for the prince to get consent when Snow White is locked in a death like state by the evil spell of the witch? How, exactly, is he supposed to get consent?

Speaking with Parents, Bell expressed how she loves reading to her daughters and discussing the stories every time they put the book down. In the case of “Snow White,” Bell used that to teach the girls a lesson about consent and talking to strangers.

Bell explained, “Every time we close Snow White I look at my girls and ask, ‘Don’t you think it’s weird that Snow White didn’t ask the old witch why she needed to eat the apple? Or where she got that apple?’ I say, ‘I would never take food from a stranger, would you?’ And my kids are like, ‘No!’ And I’m like, ‘Okay, I’m doing something right.'”

Fair enough. In fact, one could even say that “Snow White” teaches a lesson in cheerful naivete regarding the witch’s trick. But that’s not Bell’s only contention with the fairy tale classic; it’s the method by which Snow White awakens from her poisonous slumber that really irks the actress.

“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission?” Bell says she has asked her daughters. “Because you cannot kiss someone if they’re sleeping!”

The problem here, again, is that Snow White wasn’t just taking a nap in the woods and this man just strolls up and plants a big one on her. Without this kiss, she’ll die. She’s incapacitated and without the prince’s kiss, she’s never going to wake up. Hardly seems sensible to make this some sort of morality tale about consent.

Liberal PAC Takes Aim at Fox News with Unforgivable Comparisons

This supercharged hyperbole is continuing to drive our nation apart.

Published

There is no denying that the American media landscape is rife with hyperbole at this point.  In fact, it’s hard to witness even a few moments of cable “news” without being completely showered in unbelievable comparisons and outright vitriol in 2021, and this ever-angsty ethos has now found its way out of the newsroom and into politics proper. The latest symptom of this unkempt rage comes to us from a Democratic political action committee who have decided to take aim at Fox News. A recent video by the progressive MeidasTouch PAC calls on viewers to reject the GOP while comparing Republican leaders and Fox News figures to militant preachers and radical clerics, accusing them of fueling “the biggest terror threats.” The fresh 80-second clip, published Sunday, was released in a tweet marking a decade from the killing of the late notorious terrorist leader Osama bin Laden. “Today, the biggest terror threats we face are homegrown, being fueled by GOP leaders and their propaganda networks,” the tweet reads, before calling on “all patriotic Americans” to resign from the GOP. And it gets worse: While flashing images of war and terrorists, the video begins by stating that, “In every country torn by strife, violence, and hardship, men and women are drawn to extremist leaders, promising to take on the enemies of their people.” The video then displays a Confederate flag, Branch Davidian leader David Koresh and Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh. “In America, some of our lost souls respond in a similar way to the call of influential voices,” the clip continues. The video then flashes images featuring Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro, and Sean Hannity, as well as Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera. “But instead of militant preachers or radical clerics, every single night in America they can listen…

Joe Rogan Caves to Mainstream Media Over Vaccine Statement

Did the oligarchy just bludgeon free speech at Joe Rogan’s expense?

Published

Joe Rogan is a bit of an anomaly within the media realm, having recreated the way in which many of us consume informative content. Instead of packaging his brand of interview show into a 22-minute or 46-minute standardized slot, Rogan decided to allow for long form, freestyle content, with some episodes pushing well past the three hour mark with even a single guest.  This was largely seen as a refreshing boost to the very idea of free speech as it allowed for explanations of positions that would never have been possible within the mainstream media’s allowed portion-size. But when Rogan finally took a deal to bring his massively popular show to Spotify, there were concerns that the program may lose a bit of its freedom, or that it might be subject to peer pressure from the world at large. Those fears may have come true this week. Joe Rogan retracted his comments on Thursday after receiving backlash online for suggesting young, healthy people shouldn’t worry about getting the COVID-19 vaccination. “I am not an anti-vax person,” Rogan said on his popular Spotify podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience.” “In fact, I said I believe they are safe and I encourage many people to take them. I just said if you’re a young healthy person, you don’t need it. Their argument was you need it for other people. But that’s a different conversation. And yes, that makes sense,” he continued. The host continued… Rogan, 53, clarified, “I am not a doctor. I am a f***ing moron. I am a cage-fighting commentator… I am not a respected source of information even for me. But I at least try to be honest about what I am saying.” Vaccine hesitancy has been a bit of an obstacle in our nation’s reopening plan, and some lawmakers are…
