‘Joker’ is set to smash box office records for a debut of a ‘villain’s’ comic book movie, in spite of an aggressive campaign against the movie by mainstream media outlets.

The film, directed by Todd Philips and starring Joaquin Phoenix, raked in $40 million on its opening night and $94 million within its first three days in theaters.

The film’s impressive debut flies in the face of assertions by mainstream media pundits objecting to its content.

‘Joker’ provides a new take on the infamous character’s origin story. In the film, a struggling, mentally ill comedian living on the margins of a liberal capitalist society is radicalized by his surroundings, transitioning into a violent criminal who seeks vengeance on mainstream society.

Some liberal commentators objected to what they saw as a glorification of a character they saw as comparable to a member of the modern-day ‘incel’ movement, who would be motivated to commit criminal acts after enduring romantic and sexual rejection.

In fact, it’s fair to say ‘Joker’ contains both left and right-wing themes- the titular character is partially forced off the edge when facing mockery and derision at the hands of the mainstream media. Without spoiling a central twist of the film, he also faces persecution at the hands of society’s richest and most powerful individuals.

Sources within the film industry project that ‘Joker’ will net up to $194 million during its worldwide opening, approaching the previous record for a comic book villain’s movie, currently held by ‘Venom.’ It ranges from possible to likely that ‘Joker’ will break the existing record over the length of its theater distribution.

In a development previously seen with social-justice themed movies beloved by elite media critics and disliked by everyday audiences, ‘Joker’ is highly rated by casual moviegoers, while being disliked by ‘professional’ movie critics.

Norm MacDonald Skewers Celebrities for Singing Atheist Anthem During Coronavirus Pandemic

MacDonald said: “God, celebrities are idiots. Shame.”

Published

The smug Hollywood elite has once again caught the ire of legendary comedian and evangelical Christian Norm MacDonald.

MacDonald is irate over a recent viral video showing a group of A-list celebrities singing John Lennon’s pro-communist anthem Imagine in an attempt to help their fans cope with the coronavirus pandemic.

Featuring actors and actresses like Gal Gadot, James Marsden, Zoe Kravitz, Amy Adams, Mark Ruffalo, Jimmy Fallon and Natalie Portman, the display has been widely panned as showing how out-of-touch the Hollywood elite is with the public at large.

Their trite attempt to promote unity amidst a crisis be seen here:

The former Saturday Night Live comedian took great personal offense with the display considering the bleak, atheistic language in the song performed by the celebrities.

“Imagine some idiot celebrity telling her fans, in the middle of a Pandemic, to “Imagine there’s no heaven.”, when it is the only hope for so many of our elderly patients dying agonizing deaths while this rich lady smugly smiles,. mocking them and their faith in their last moments,” McDonald wrote on Twitter in a since-deleted post.

Although McDonald deleted his first tweet on the topic, he doubled down shortly afterward and expressed his anger once again with the Hollywood celebrities for their tone-deaf measure.

“I don’t know this celebrity was who sang “Imagine” online so the elderly ones who are dying agonizing deaths can be assured by a smug celebrity that there is no heaven. God, celebrities are idiots. Shame,” MacDonald wrote in a Tweet on Thursday.

MacDonald regularly takes on the entertainment industry to oppose their hypocrisy and moral preening. He was castigated in 2018 for his views about the #metoo witch hunt and comedy legend Roseanne Barr, who was unpersoned by Hollywood for making a joke.

“I’m happy the #MeToo movement has slowed down a little bit,” MacDonald said in 2018, adding that his comedy hero Barr is “not a racist.”

When asked about the destruction of legendary comedians like Barr and Louis C.K. by the left-wing mob, MacDonald said: “There are very few people that have gone through what they have, losing everything in a day. Of course, people will go, ‘What about the victims?’ But you know what? The victims didn’t have to go through that.”

In addition, MacDonald has made jokes in the past that many have considered derogatory and offensive to the LGBT community.

MacDonald is the last of a dying breed of comedians in the entertainment industry who refuse to bow at the altar of political correctness.
