The Lord works in mysterious ways.


Apparently in this instance the lord is working through a leftist (socialist actually) who is calling out the left for not being left enough and openly mocks the idea (for decades now) of belief in god (or that a lord would or could be working through anyone). I've loved Gervais for years, but pretty weird for y'all righties to be aligning with him. Perhaps if you looked into his politics a bit more you'd be a lil less psyched.

It has nothing to do with aligning it is most of the right don't totally dismiss somebody on the left, nor does the right feel threatened when they agree with a leftist when they are correct about a topic. Its called free thinking or having an open mind try it.

Glad you liked his stage show. And all I have is the evidence that is constantly provided here at ATS regarding the pitchforks that are dragged out for anyone that dare speak against Trump.

But since you appreciate Gervais, here's him from an actual interview on Trump...

“Why were people believing the most opulent billionaire on the planet when he said the problem was the liberal elite in Hollywood. I’m thinking why are they falling for this? Why are they falling for drain the swamp? He is the swamp.”

I'm gonna guess you don't have an open mind about that statement?
Keep on keeping on brotha.

The politically right-leaning members here are not agreeing/aligning with Gervais's lefty politics. They are enjoying how he's whacking Paedowood over the head with a great big heavy Truth stick, broadcasted world-wide to all their unaware adoring fans.

This 'politics' is not Right vs Left. It's Good vs evil.

Gervais is helping 'The Great Awakening'.

People need to believe this is happening. It's real.

I liked when he addressed them all as perverts.....

And one should have seen the wall built for security and all the guns in the place.

These people think they are better than everyone else and just spew double standards

Loved it and love the discussion about it taking place on social media this morning..... normies who are completely silent on issues like this typically will loosen up and feel more comfortable having a discussion about these things when somebody has cracked the ice like this first.

I’m sorry I realize I just used the word normies....if there’s a better word for people who generally do not seem to acknowledge the sad state of affairs involving our Hollywood elite then I cannot find it right now... must need coffee ☕️

Big fan of Gervais, one of the few you can trust to be both honest and sensible. Cut from the same cloth as Ron White and George Carlin.

Best bit:


You say you’re woke but the companies you work for—Apple, Amazon, Disney... If ISIS started a streaming service, you would call your agent, wouldn’t you? So if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech, right? You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world.

Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So if you win, come up, accept your little award, thank your agent and your god, and f# off.


Even Vanessa Redgrave and Marlon Brando's Native Indian rep (for the 1973 Oscars) would be p#ssing themselves laughing. However, Brit humour's often brutal exaggeration for comedic effect (water off a duck's back here) is sometimes taken far too much to heart by US audiences as a 'call to arms' or something. Which is also funny in itself.

It's just a public announcement reminding Hollywood to stay in its lane.

Now THIS I can get behind. Hollywooders making statements about politicians, politics, I couldn't care less. Hollywood calling out Hollywood - HELL YES!

Way to go Ricky!

Anyone working with/for the super rich know that most of them are allergic to any form of criticism.

Calling them out on their hypocrisy in the most brutal fashion on live television?

Well that's something that money can't buy.


One of the best feel good videos I've watched in a long time.

Don't forget these people are actors. It's fake. It's an attempt to convince people that something will change or somebody in Hollywood will change or anything at all will change. You can't believe a word of it.

Thousands of years of struggle to control the Earth is not going to simply stop.

I don't know man Tom Hanks Leo DiCaprio Martin Scorsese and others were sweating real bullets.
I think something is going on behind the scenes.

Ronan Farrow really is coming for them

Would you settle for them not being able to ever show their face in public for fear of their lives?


That's a fabulous start.


Not that it's going to happen - their faces are worth too much money to Hollywood, etc.

Maybe, he is an improv master, but he's also FULLY in the pocket of NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. They know exactly what they're doing. People loved it when he was crass at his last hosting event, and the GG's aren't an awards show, they're advertising, so they need people to watch. Couple peoples love of a take down with the anti-Epstein, anti-Weinstein, sentiments and they'll have the best rates show in ages.

And people will absolutely lap it up like it's "real". If it was real and unscripted, he would have been cut somehow.

Nothing will come of this at all.
