I Have Lost Respect For Meryl Streep
January 9, 2017 12:07pm CST
I don't normally watch any of the awards shows, but my husband had the TV on and turned it to the Golden Globes. We kept it there for awhile because we watch The Americans and Keri Russell was up for best actress in a drama (she didn't win), and that is what we had wanted to see , if she would win or not. Then shortly after that, Meryl Streep gets the Life Time Achievement Award and has to use that platform to spew her left wing garbage and bash Trump in the process. One of the things she said that was so off base was when she pointed to some of the foreign actors and actresses and said that if we followed the policies of how he views foreigners, then these people would have not had a chance in American acting. That is so misinterpreting what Trump is saying about Immigration. He is against Illegal Immigration. I bet most of those actors she was pointing to are Legal Citizens or Foreigners who have legal work permits to work in this Country. I don't think she once thanked all the people who helped her through her Career in film. I don't think she once thanked this Country of America that gave her the freedom and opportunity to pursue her acting dreams and caused her to succeed. I am so disgusted. I really don't think I can ever watch one of her movies again without feeling sick. Acceptance of an Award as big as hers last night, does not call for a spew of Political beliefs. I don't care if you are Liberal or Conservative. It is a time to come forward and thank the people and Country who helped you succeed. And, if you believe in God, you can thank your Higher Power. We turned the channel right after that.

Streep made the ridiculous statement that without foreign talent, there would be nothing to watch but football and MMA which succeeded in offending those fans. She knows full well that MOST of what you see on TV and in movies is not filmed in America but productions mainly shot in Canada employing non-American actors playing American characters. Furthermore what is produced in America is overrun by foreign actors putting on American voices. I love foreign actors but it's a bit disconcerting for so many foreign actors and their American accents taking jobs from American actors who are desperate for work.

I don't about you, but I'm pretty sick of all the political drama going on among us regular civilians right now. I'm pretty sure nobody regardless of who they support watched the awards show hoping to have more of it shoved in their faces.
