Rep. Jordan slams Dems saying, no one is safe from ‘cancel culture’
Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan laid out the indisputable argument that the media and Hollywood are ardent supporters of the Democratic Party during Thursdays hearing, titled Diversity in America: The Representation of People of Color in the Media.
The House Judiciary Committee’s hearing included a number of witnesses, as well as Eric S. Dreiband, who is the assistant attorney general at the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. He testified before the committee along with a number of representatives from civil rights organizations across the U.S. and some entertainers.
Jordan, however, pointed to the growing disparity in the media and Hollywood toward conservative viewpoints and growing biased against Republicans in general.
He called out the hypocrisy during his opening statement.
“Even the media is not woke enough for the Democrats,” said Jordan. “Hollywood is not woke enough for the Democrats. Ninety-six percent of media – their political contributions in 2016 went to Democrats, almost all of Hollywood supports the Democrats but that’s not good enough.”
Jordan added, “this hearing proves no one is safe from the cancel culture, no one is safe from the mob.”
Joy Villa, a Grammy award winning artist, testified at the hearing, noting that her diversity didn’t ever get her ostracized but her conservatism did.
“Until I came out as a Trump supporter by wearing a fabulous Make America Great Again dress to the Grammys 4 years ago, I had never been blacklisted—Yet as soon as I began sharing my conservative beliefs and my support for President Trump, I noticed a social chill,” Villa testified.
She recalled “back in 2015, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel talked favorably with Kelly Osbourne about one of my red-carpet gowns. This was before I was conservative.”
“Ava DuVernay, the celebrated black filmmaker who said she wants to use more black actresses in her films and have more diversity, blocked me on Twitter,” she added. “I was disinvited to casting round tables. I was blacklisted from industry events. I was not welcome on most talk shows. I was not included in pop-culture magazines or publications —unless as the butt of jokes. Rolling Stone Magazine told my publicist that they would not write about me because of my politics.”

BREAKING: Federal Indictment of Trump in Classified Documents Probe has been Unsealed
Former President and current Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted and is facing 37 counts in connection with his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The 49-page document was unsealed Friday.
The indictment contains charges of the following: Willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.
Trump announced the indictment Thursday night on Truth Social, his social media platform:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Trump declared himself an “INNOCENT MAN” and the subject of the “Greatest Witch Hunt of all time.” The Biden administration, he claimed, is ‘TOTALLY CORRUPT.”
The former president has argued that all the documents in question were declassified when he left the White House. “You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview last year.
Trump was on to Biden's deep corruption re Ukraine and wanted it investigated, so they impeached him.
Now that many of Biden's crimes are being exposed, naturally they're going to indict Trump again.
