Natalie Portman is probably a very liberal woman, although I say that with the caveat that I don't really know that much about her. I remember her more as a child star who in one film became the companion of a crime syndicate hit man. I don't even remember the name of the film, though I remember I was impressed by the then barely teen actresses acting chops.
The only other thing I know about her is, she's a vegan, which tells me she is more than likely very liberal, which means she would basically fit in with the Hollywood hoi-poloi quite nicely.
But then, in accepting her Oscar for her role in last year's film The Black Swan, she made a very serious boo-boo.
This assertion of the importance of her up-and-coming role as a new mother prompted this acerbic, rabid response in the pages of Salon.
Early on in her speech, before the part about her becoming a mother (while thanking the guy who kindly provided this golden opportunity), she thanked her parents for, to paraphrase her, giving her life and being good parents to her.
So there you have it, sensitive Hollywood types, and other leftists/liberals, being forced to endure the spectacle of a successful actress declaring her intention to be a good mother and further asserting that it would be the most important role of her life. As if that were not bad enough, she seemed to give some credence to the idea that a married couple-a man and a woman-might do a good job at something that is generally seen as the legitimate purview of government social services-raising a child. She even implied that she learned a good many things and that her relationship with her parents was positive. Oh, the horrors.
Seriously, liberals have a right to expect better than this from one of their own. And speaking of ingrates, Natalie Portman portrayed a lesbian in the film, yet did not give so much as a shout-out in acknowledgment of sympathy and support for LGBT issues. No, not so much as a word. See, that's the kind of thing that makes leftist fucktards chew their nails and rip their hair out. What an appaling lack of sensitivity on her part. Here you have a case where long lines of leftists line up for miles on end to bask in the glow of a young woman ballet dancer experiencing sexual release with a member of her own sex, and what does Natalie Portman do when she is rewarded for her efforts with an Oscar? She thanks her parents and brags about being pregnant with her own child.
Fret not, leftards, I'm sure things will move full circle. Maybe next year you'll be treated to an awards ceremony featuring Lady Gaga performing a work of performance art-incucing an on-stage miscarriage. Then you'll have a chance to write glowing colums of praise about how artistic and edgy she is, while Natalie Portman will be carrying her second child while taking orders at a greasy spoon diner, hiding a black eye, courtesy of the fists of her beast of an opposite sex mate, and secretly dreaming of what might have been.
