Well, the Grammys were last night. And in true entertainment industry fashion, the stars just couldn’t help themselves from turning a would-be artistic celebration into a political drag fest, complete with roses, resistance letters, jabs and mockery.
Not to be out-shined by the Golden Globes, the music industry wanted to flex their political muscle, and did so, rather flatly, if I may be so bold.
But frankly, this is what I’ve come to expect from the entertainment industry elite. They have the answers, and will arrogantly make it known.
The low point of the night, in my opinion, was when they had all different celebrities reading from “Fire and Fury.” Including Hilary Clinton herself.
To me, it read as desperate, bitter and petty….
No shocker there. After all, it is Hilary Clinton.
But despite all the mockery and glorification of the liberal agenda, there was one bright spot among the entire evening.
A bight spot that you probably didn’t even know happened, because there were no major headlines about this brave woman and her controversial stand against an unpopular-with-the-left opinion.
Enter Joy Villa.
Truthfully, I had never heard of her before, but after her courage last night, you can bet your bottom dollar that I will be buying her album to support her!
Joy Villa wore a white dress that she had handpainted a fetus on. And on her purse, the words, “CHOOSE LIFE.”
And when asked about it, she said, “I am a pro-life woman…I’m all about life.”
You hear that? It’s me giving this woman a standing ovation from my studio apartment in NYC.
Miss Villa gave up a child for adoption when she was 21 years old, and has since become a huge advocate for adoption over abortion.
I can’t imagine the courage it took to wear that, to an event filled with literally, enough Planned Parenthood supporters to fill Madison Square Garden.
The woman’s got quite the nerve.
You go, Glenn Coco.
But it’s just baffling, isn’t it?
Her pro-life demonstration is nowhere to be found on the major news networks, minus Fox, of course.
It’s infuriating. Heaven forbid a woman stand up to protect the unborn. That’s going against liberal agenda. Kill the story.
And it’s funny how, just ten days ago, on Jan 19, hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists marched on Washington in the March for Life, to protest Roe V. Wade.
Of course, there was no coverage on that pro-life event either. As it was grossly overshadowed by the Women’s March the following day.
Which, to be clear: I’m all for women’s equality and equal pay and standing up to end sexual abuse and harassment – but isn’t it funny that a March dedicated to women coming together in unity, actively excludes pro-life, conservative women?
It is liberal hypocrisy at its best.
But that’s a topic for a different day.
I’m not here to bore you with abortion facts. Clearly, Blue Ivy had enough boredom last night for the rest of us.
All I know is that there was one courageous woman last night, standing up for those little babies.
Those 2,700 babies that will die today from abortion.
I will leave you with just one final thought.
Kendrick Lamar’s powerful performance about race, and U2 and Dave Chappelle’s comments on race have been receiving so much airtime and praise and headlines, as they rightfully should.
But if these far left news sources and industry elite would really like to tackle racism, how about confronting and taking a stand against the devastating toll abortion has deliberately taken on African American communities. Nearly half of all Black conceptions end in abortion. Take a look at where the Planned Parenthood centers are located in your community and decide for yourself.
Their support seems a little hypocritical now, dont’cha think?
Yeah, Hilary…you might want to rethink your support, too…
***Caveat: I am well aware that Planned Parenthood offers other services, besides abortions. However, PP is the largest abortion provider in the US, performing over 382,000 abortions per year. Yes, women should have access to free/safe healthcare and pregnancy resources. But why fund genocide in the process?***
