Meryl Streep accepts the Cecil B DeMille Award with a speech that celebrated Hollywood diversity
  • The campaign of Donald Trump's character assassination adds another notable participant:  Meryl Streep, as she falsely accused him of mocking a disabled reporter.
  • See video below contradicting such allegation.
  • Meryl Streep's compassion for disabled people is restricted to those who can be politically useful to her ideology. 
  • She conveniently ignores the recent case of torture of a white disabled boy at the hands of Afro-American thugs in Chicago.  READ MORE HERE
  • She conveniently ignores the many Americans who have been made disabled by illegal criminal migrants allowed to come in and stay thanks to the Open Borders politics of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
  • In addition hundreds of Americans have been made physically and mentally disabled as a result of recurrent acts of jihad on American soil, while Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have called for millions of unvetted Muslims to settle in the USA.
  • Where is Meryl's compassion for their victims? 
Meryl Streep used her moment of honor and glory at the Globe Awards yesterday, as she received a Lifetime Achievement Award,  to attack President Elect Donald Trump.  In a voice perfectly conveying her distress, she accused Donald Trump as having mocked a disabled person, and recalled that moment with these words:
It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege and power and the capacity to fight back.  It, it kind of broke my heart when I saw it and I still can’t get it out my head ...

It's rather ironic that she displayed such deep compassion for a disabled reporter, and yet she was completely oblivious of the Chicago disabled white boy who just a few days ago was kidnapped, degraded, tied up, tortured, terrorized, beaten and injured by black eighteen-year-old thugs - the same black youth the Democrats elevate to the category of victims, no matter how horrible their crimes.  
The Democrats have left American society more divided than ever along racial lines, with their identity politics and constant incitement against whites and those who uphold traditional family values.  Voters got fed up, and in spite of widespread vote fraud by people who voted multiple times without being required to have an identity card, Trump won. 
The presidential campaign showed Democrats and their supporters in their true light, as their mobs physically attacked Trump supporters and their property.  NOT ONCE did President Obama made a call for Democrat supporters to RESPECT their opponents for the sake of the electoral process.  
FURTHERMORE, Hillary's agenda included importing MILLIONS of Muslim and other migrants, regardless of the safety of the American public.
Where is your compassion, Meryl Streep, for the countless victims of crimes committed by  Muslim and illegal migrants who have raped, and even killed innocent Americans? 
Where is your compassion for the many who have been left DISABLED by jihadi attacks on Americans?
Just look at what Europe looks like today with the Open Borders Policy: 
GERMANY: Muslim invaders commit one crime every two minutes

This scenario as evidenced by Germany, France, Belgium, Sweden, and other European countries is the one that Hillary Clinton intended to inflict on the United States of America for the sake of adding more voters for the Democrats.  After all, Hillary herself named Angela Merkel as her idol.     
Last year, there were at least 2,474 deadly Islamic terror
attacks in 61 countries that claimed over 21,237 lives.
All other world religions accounted for about four.
Think of the many Americans who were left MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY DISABLED by the trauma.  The 2016 attack in the Orlando night club left 53 persons injured.  How many of them will be disabled for life?
Do you feel any compassion for them, Meryl Streep?
Not all Trump supporters like the man, but he is infinitely better than Hillary Clinton, with her baggage of corruption, multiple scandals, incompetence, and betrayal of the American public.  
Whoever hacked the Democrats' emails and leaked their content to Wikileaks, this gave the American public the kind of secret information that Hillary, the president, and the Democrat establishment did not want anyone else to know before the election. 
Incidentally, the story that Trump mocked a disabled reporter has been thoroughly discredited, as the following video shows Trump routinely making the same flailing arm movements to ridicule a number of people with whom he disagrees.  It does not look very presidential, granted, but this is how Trump expresses himself.  Watch this video:
VIDEO - Trump did NOT mock a reporter's disability. He makes funny expressions all the time

By Ann Coulter, Breitbart

Just when you think the media could not possibly become more loathsome, the Fourth Estate bullies prove you wrong again. The Washington Post’s latest ugliness was to exploit the disability of a newspaper reporter in order to smear the Republican nominee for president. Then — and this is the least surprising part of the story — the Post lied about it.

 Other than the subject of that paragraph — which I slyly switched from Trump to the media — that is an exact paraphrase of the Post’s opening lines from an editorial hawking the media’s most successful lie about Donald Trump: that he mocked a man for being disabled.

 I have a chapter on that lie in my new book, In Trump We Trust: E Pluribus Awesome!, It was perfectly obvious that Trump was not mimicking any disability that Serge has, but I didn’t have the smoking gun to prove that the media were lying and knew they were lying. Now we have it.

A group called Catholics 4 Trump has posted a video clip of another part of that same speech, in which Trump imitates a flustered general. Guess what? He does the exact same arm flailing.
In another speech, Trump pretended to be a timorous Ted Cruz. Again, he does the exact same arm flailing. You can see the videos hereNeither the general nor Cruz is disabled.
If a jury ever saw these videos, it would acquit Trump immediately. Trump’s impression of a groveling reporter is just like his imitation of a groveling general and just like his imitation of a groveling U.S. senator. He’s like Rich Little that way: All his impressions look the same.
Perhaps Trump is not a subtle actor, but he’s utterly innocent of making fun of a disabled person.
Now consider the media’s role in manufacturing, and then protecting, this lie. Reporters were at Trump’s speech. They were filming it. They saw him do the identical imitation of a general during that same speech.
The media knew damn well that Trump does the arm-waving routine whenever he’s pretending to be a flustered person. But they never allowed the public to see the clip of Trump doing the same imitation of a general.
That is proof that the media knew they were lying.
And isn’t it curious that in the midst of the frenzy over Trump’s allegedly mocking a disabled reporter, you’ve never seen the reporter interviewed? Why don’t they show us Serge, so that the public can gasp in horror and say, Why Trump’s imitation is the spitting image of Serge Kovaleski!

The reason the media won’t show an interview with Serge is that if you ever saw him speaking, it would be blindingly obvious that Trump’s imitation isn’t in the same universe as Serge’s affliction. Serge speaks perfectly calmly. He does not twitch, jerk or flail his arms. (That’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz you’re thinking of.)
There’s an old interview with Serge here.
The absence of a current Serge interview is the dog that didn’t bark. The only reason you will never see anything but a still photo of Serge is so that the media can trick the public into believing he has something like cerebral palsy.
In fact, his disability is almost the exact opposite of what Trump was doing: Serge has arthrogryposis, which locks his wrists in place, actually preventing movement.
We also have proof that the media know they are lying about Trump mocking a disabled man. In the “Comments” section to a Washington Post article pushing this lie, someone posted a perfectly respectful response that included the Catholics 4 Trump videos — of Trump doing the exact same imitation of a general and of Serge being interviewed. The Post deleted the comment — and pronto!
Why did the Post instantly remove those videos from the “Comments” section? To hide the evidence of its lying.
That’s consciousness of guilt. The Post couldn’t allow anyone to see those videos because then everyone would see that this is how Trump imitates any frightened person. Maybe he won’t be hired by “Saturday Night Live” as a sketch comedian — and as you know, that show will hire almost anybody these days — but Trump did not “mock” a disabled man.
None of the media’s other hysterical anti-Trump campaigns are getting any traction.

Trump campaigns are getting any traction. t be trusted to deliver fair verdicts to black defendants.

Trump criticized a Gold Star Dad? Yes, but that Gold Star Dad also happened to be a snarling Muslim who took the stage at the Democratic National Convention in order to viciously lecture Trump, saying he has no right to venture opinions because his kid didn’t die in Iraq. Khizr Khan isn’t exactly a baby seal.

Trump called Hillary the “MVP” of ISIS? Most people didn’t need the media’s earnest “fact-checks” establishing beyond dispute that ISIS has not, in fact, given Hillary the MVP award. Nor “Most Improved.” Nor “Best Spirit.”
Of all things Trump has been accused of, the claim that he made fun of a disabled person is the only one that has hurt him — and justly so, if it were true. But now we know it was a big, fat, intentional lie by our guardians of truth and justice in the media.


Full Transcript of Meryl Streep's speech at the Golden Globes Award Ceremony

I love you all. You have to forgive me, I have lost my voice in screaming and lamentation this weekend and I have lost my mind sometime earlier this year so I have to read. 
Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press. Just to pick up on what Hugh Laurie said, you and all of us in this room really belong to the most vilified segments of American society right now. Think about it: Hollywood, foreigners and the press. 
But who are we and, you know, what is Hollywood, anyway? It’s just a bunch of people from other places. I was born and raised and educated in the public schools of New Jersey, Viola was born in a sharecropper's cabin in South Carolina, came up in Central Falls,  R.I. Sarah Paulson was born in Florida, raised by a single mom in Brooklyn. Sarah Jessica Parker was one of seven or eight kids from Ohio, Amy Adams was born in Vicenza, Veneto, Italy and Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem. Where are their birth certificates? 
And the beautiful Ruth Negga was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, raised in Lon – no, in Ireland, I do believe, and she’s here nominated for playing a small-town girl from Virginia. Ryan Gosling, like all the nicest people, is Canadian. And Dev Patel was born in Kenya, raised in London and is here playing an Indian raised in Tasmania. So Hollywood is crawling with outsiders and foreigners and if we kick them all out, you’ll have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts, which are not the arts.
They gave me three seconds to say this, so. An actor’s only job is to enter the lives of people who are different from us and let you feel what that feels like. And there were many, many, many powerful performances this year that did exactly that, breathtaking, compassionate work. 
But there was one performance this year that stunned me. It sank its hooks in my heart, not because it was good, it was – there’s nothing good about it. But it was effective and it did its job. It made its intended audience laugh and show their teeth. 
It was that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege and power and the capacity to fight back. It, it kind of broke my heart when I saw it and I still can’t get it out my head because it wasn’t in a movie. It was real life. And this instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing. 
Disrespect invites disrespect. Violence incites violence. When the powerful use their position to bully others, we all lose. OK, go on with that thing. OK, this brings me to the press. We need the principled press to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage. 
That’s why our founders enshrined the press and its freedoms in our constitution. So I only ask the famously well-heeled Hollywood foreign press and all of us in our community to join me in supporting the Committee to Protect Journalists, ’cause we’re going to need them going forward and they’ll need us to safeguard the truth. 
One more thing. Once when I was standing around the set one day, whining about something, we were going to work through supper or the long hours or whatever, Tommy Lee Jones said to me: “Isn't it such a privilege, Meryl, just to be an actor?” Yeah, it is. And we have to remind each other of the privilege and the responsibility of the act of empathy. We should be very proud of the work Hollywood honors here tonight. 
As my, as my friend, the dear departed Princess Leia, said to me once: “Take your broken heart, make it into art.”
Thank you, Foreign Press.
