Okay, so I've allowed plenty of time for everyone to see the highlights. Sally Field wins an Emmy, walks up to the podium, speaks in tongues for a few seconds, and then finally forces out a coherent sentence saying something like "if mothers ruled the world there would be no war". Or something like that.
As I mentioned in my last post, I think the celebrity anti-war statements are soon to fade away, to be replaced by anti-Christian statements. And Sally Field moments like this are partly to blame. In short, she basically looked like a fool. And I'm sure I'm not the only one a little tired of the celebrity acceptance/kick-Bush-in-the-ribs speech. Enough already. We all know Hollywood is against the war. We get it. Now just thank your agent and move along. But first, I must take issue with Sally over a few things.
First, if you're going to protest something, how about protesting it with distinct syllables and maybe a few words. If not, then just thank your agent and move along. Second, how about just saving the anti-war crap for a Tim Robbins/Susan Sarandon cocktail party? People tune in to see the Emmys, not half-witted efforts to sound refined and elite.
Finally, what's this about women ruling the world? Are you kidding me? I've seen how women behave towards each other at dinner parties. Women hate other women. The first time some busty blonde eyeballed another's husband it would be world war four. Gitmo detainees would be replaced by Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders. 'Terrorist' would be redefined as that woman across the street who washes her car in a white T-shirt every Saturday. I love women, and I respect the fact that they're equal to men, but I don't buy this "women would not wage war" garbage.
The fact is, Sally Field and I have something in common. We are both anti-war. In fact, I don't know a single person who is not anti-war. The difference between us is that although I hate war, I realize that war is sometimes necessary and is often what's needed in order to preserve peace. People like Sally think that war is never necessary, and there is always 'another way'. Unfortunately, that's not the reality. I wish I could live in that kind of world, a world of denial and naivety. We can dream, and have fantasies about women ruling the world, or children ruling the world or whatever. But the fact is, eventually that dream ends, and when it does there is always a Hitler, Mussolini, King George, Hussein or Ahmadinejad who doesn't share our dream and only wants to dominate the planet. The question is, what do we do with these people? Sally Field has no answer, and neither do any of these other anti-war knuckleheads who live in another reality. We all want peace, unfortunately peace comes with a steep price that has to be paid with the blood of Americans who value peace more than any other population on this planet.
So if these peace-loving celebs want to condemn someone, how about Kim Il, or Ahmadinehad, or Castro or any other lunatic who poses a threat to peace...not the Americans that fight to protect it.
