Meryl Streep and Behghazi

In a nearly 6-minute address while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress denounced Trump’s campaign rhetoric and criticized him for mocking a disabled reporter.

“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, power and the capacity to fight back.”

Many were offended by Trumps mockery, but Hillary had her moments of mocking people.

Charles Woods, the father of Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods who was killed in the 2012 attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, said that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lied to him about an anti-Muslim video being the cause of the attack, and his son’s death, and that she also “lied to the American people” and to “other family members” who lost loved ones in Benghazi.

Hillary Clinton was mocking her cover up of the Murder of US Amb. Stevens when she said “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans,” Clinton said. “What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?”

Hillary Clinton and her top aide ignored growing dangers at the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, as intelligence existed indicating an attack on the facility was possible, according to a report by the House Benghazi Select Committee.

Meryl Streep was not making a stance on dignity, she was simply pushing her own misguided ill informed opinion.

I still do not understand Hollywood’s obsession with spewing forth their political an economic nonsense, they are not the main event, they are simply a side show to the real world, they are the entertainment, court jesters that America has elevated to royalty.

I remember my Grandfathers response to poorly formed opinions, “if I wanted the pigs, I would rattle the bucket”.

    The 2012 Benghazi attack that September was coordinated against two United States government facilities in Benghazi, Libya by members of the Islamic militant group Ansar al-Sharia.

    At 9:40 PM, September 11, members of Ansar al-Sharia attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi resulting in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith.[6][7] Stevens was the first U.S. ambassador killed in the line of duty since 1979.[8]

    At around 4:00 AM on September 12, the group launched a mortar attack against a CIA annex approximately one mile (1.6 km) away, killing CIA contractors Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty[7][9][10] and wounding ten others. At the behest of the CIA, top U.S. officials initially described the attacks as the results of a spontaneous protest triggered by recently released anti-Muslim video, Innocence of Muslims.[11] Subsequent investigations showed that the attack was premeditated – although rioters and looters not acting with the group may have later joined in after the attacks begun.[12][13][14]

    The National Review later labeled the attack Battle of Benghazi,[15] a name that has since been used to refer to the attacks by several media outlets. There is no definitive evidence that al-Qaeda or any other international terrorist organization participated in the Benghazi attack.[16][17][18] The United States immediately increased security worldwide at diplomatic and military facilities and began investigating the Benghazi attack.[19][20] Many Libyans have condemned the attacks. They staged public demonstrations condemning Ansar Al-Sharia, which had been formed during the 2011 Libyan civil war in opposition to leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.[21][22][23]

    State Department officials were later criticized for denying requests for additional security at the consulate prior to the attack. In her role as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton subsequently took responsibility for the security lapses.[24] On August 6, 2013, it was reported that the U.S. had filed criminal charges against several individuals alleged to have been involved in the attacks, including militia leader Ahmed Abu Khattala.[25] Khattala has been described by Libyan and U.S. officials as the Benghazi leader of Ansar al-Sharia. The U.S. Department of State designated Ansar al-Sharia as a terrorist organization in January 2014.[26][27][28]

    Khattala was captured in Libya by U.S. Army Special Operations Forces, who were acting in coordination with the FBI, in June 2014.[29]

    How Stupid is Meryl Streep

    Try this one

    Meryl Streep caused a stir as she joined the controversial debate about diversity in the film industry.

    The Berlin Film Festival president announced “we’re all Africans really”, when asked about the event’s all-white jury.

    The Oscar-winning actress is joined by British star Clive Owen and Alba Rohrwacher, Lars Eidinger, Brigitte Lacombe, Malgorzata Szumowska and critic Nick James – who are all Caucasian – and was quizzed about the choice of jury by reporters at a conference on Thursday to mark its opening.

    Meryl commented: “There is a core of humanity that travels right through every culture, and after all we’re all from Africa originally. Berliners, we’re all Africans really.”
