As most people know, there has been a long standing feud between the actress Rosie O'Donnell and current GOP frontrunner for the 2016 presidential nomination Donald Trump. The Libertarian blogger Willis Hart is similarly obsessed with bashing Mrs O'Donnell.
|Willis Hart: On the Fact that Rosie O'Donnell Played Betty Rubble in that Stupid "Flintstones" Movie... I know that cartoon characters can't sue but can we make an exception JUST THIS ONE TIME? I mean, my God, what an insult. (1/19/2016 AT 11:12am).|
Yeah, I think that Willis being so upset about Rosie O'Donnell playing Betty Rubble has something to do with him previously proclaiming that this fictional cartoon woman is his choice for "the world's greatest brunette". Although that was 2 months before the above post. And, all this outrage concerning a movie that came out in 1994, which some people might find more than a little strange.
Anyway, Willis assumes that Betty Rubble (were she not fictional and could say who she would want to portray her in a live action movie) would object to the selection of Rosie O'Donnell. Which is, of course, bullshit. I mean, the holders of the Flintstones copyright were obviously FINE with the selection of Rosie O'Donnell. Not only did they not sue, but they gave their go head/blessing and therefore there was no insult.
By the way, when I say that Willis' obsession with Rosie O'Donnell is Trumpesque, I mean that his hate O'Donnell very often takes the form of commentaries with a misogynist undertone.
As moderator Megyn Kelly (of the 1st Republican debate) pointed out, Trump has referred to women as fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals. As with Trump, many of WTNPH's criticisms of females that express left-leaning opinions are based on what they look like.
For example, here is a particlarly disgusting "commentary" concerning Joy Behar.
|Willis Hart: For Erections Lasting More than Four Hours?... [Picture of Joy Behar] Yeah, this ought to do. P.S. And, yes, it even works on blind fellows in that simply after an utterance or two (the voice combined with what she says), boom, gone. (12/14/2015 AT 8:08pm).|
No reference to anything substantive in either of these posts, only misogynistic attacks on "Leftist" women the Hartster does not like based on what they look like. It isn't as if Willis criticizes O'Donnell's acting in the Flintstones movie. We all know that his beef is based on her appearance. Also, I think Joy Behar looks pretty damn good given the fact that she's 73 years old!
