At the end of every year, Natural News makes a point of highlighting the most ridiculous statements made over the past 12 months by establishment journalists, celebrities, media talking-heads, and others trying to actively push industry propaganda and government disinformation on the masses. And 2015 was a big year for some shockingly offensive blurbs made in reference to a number of issues pertinent to our readers – things like abortion, gun control, health freedom, biotechnology, and more.
To make it easy for you, we’ve compiled a play-by-play list of “the worst of the worst” for your reading enlightenment, which we’ve entitled the 2015 Celebrity Hall of Shame Awards. The top contenders are as follows:
1) Jimmy Wales. Besides being exposed in early 2015 for his involvement in an online pornography operation that exploited women, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales went off the deep end when he chastised the signers of a petition calling for more fairness in the way Wikipedia page entries are published. Refusing to admit that active censorship of Wikipedia entries on alternative medicine and natural healing goes against his own website’s policies, Wales had this to say about his detractors:
“What we won’t do is pretend that the work of lunatic charlatans is the equivalent of ‘true scientific discourse.’ It isn’t.”
In other words, if Jimmy Wales doesn’t personally agree with you on a particular issue, then you’re somehow a “lunatic charlatan” who isn’t worthy of being featured on his “open-source” information page. So much for free speech (and the trustworthiness of Wikipedia).
2) Jon Stewart. This popular nightly talk show host offered his two cents on the vaccine debate, which was a major focus of the mainstream media during 2015. Callously disregarding all the parents out there of vaccine-injured children, Stewart openly mocked those who oppose vaccines for safety reasons, referring to them as “science-denying… affluent California liberals.”
Stewart also went on a wild rant during a monologue on the final episode of his show about governments and politicians not doing enough to address “climate change,” bellowing in sarcastic jest:
“We cannot take action on climate change until everyone in the world agrees that gay marriage vaccines won’t cause our children to marry goats who will come for our guns.”
Go home, Stewart: You’re drunk.
3) Dr. Deborah Nucatola. The Senior Director of Medical Research at Planned Parenthood, America’s largest abortion provider, Dr. Deborah Nucatola has had a difficult time trying to preserve her reputation as a human being with any semblance of decency after undercover videos depicted her casually discussing the illegal sale of aborted baby body parts over wine and cheese.
“A lot of people want intact hearts these days,” Nucatola stated casually in undercover footage, as she sipped a fine red with folks she believed to be potential buyers. “The federal abortion ban is a law, and laws are up to interpretation,” she added, admitting to Planned Parenthood’s illegal flouting of federal law.
4) Whoopi Goldberg. During a discussion on The View about the Syrian refugee crisis, talk show host Whoopi Goldberg made some curious statements about Christianity that don’t seem to align with actual history. Challenging the notion that Muslim refugees shouldn’t be allowed to enter the country – only Christian ones – Goldberg tried to persuade her viewers into thinking that Christians are just as dangerous as Muslims by exclaiming that:
“There have been a lot of horrifying, there have been a lot of monster Christians. Hitler was a Christian.”
Detractors were quick to point out that Hitler was, in fact, opposed to Christianity, and had sought to eradicate it as part of his national socialist agenda.
5) Joy Behar. In that same episode of The View, co-host Joy Behar followed up Goldberg’s comments about Hitler by saying, “Timothy McVeigh was a Christian. Just sayin’.” This baseless claim about the Oklahoma City bomber is popular among liberals who take every opportunity to conflate white males and Christians in America with domestic extremism and terrorism. However, like Goldberg’s claim regarding Hitler, this one has also been thoroughly debunked; in fact, McVeigh himself wrote about his agnosticism and disbelief in an afterlife before his execution.
6) Geraldo Rivera. The year 2015 will definitely go down in history as the year of government-instigated false-flag shootings. But rather than point out the obvious government agenda of trying to vilify firearms instead of the criminals who misuse them, talk show goon Geraldo Rivera jumped onboard the anti-gun agenda, tweeting after the recent San Bernardino shooting in California:
“The [Second] Amendment is stupid!!! Don’t rationalize.”
Whatever you say, Rivera.
7) Patrick Moore. This prominent Monsanto apologist got a taste of his own medicine – almost – after a French journalist challenged him to put his money where his mouth is by drinking a glass of Roundup (glyphosate) on camera. Moore had made the following statement just prior to the challenge in defense of glyphosate’s alleged safety:
“Do not believe that glyphosate in Argentina is causing increases in cancer. You can drink a whole quart of it and it won’t hurt you.”
Sorry, Moore: You’re not fooling anyone, you industry troll!
8) Sarah Silverman. Ultra-feminist and God-hating shock comedian Sarah Silverman isn’t exactly the poster child for class. But this vile individual inadvertently became a Nazi sympathizer when she tweeted the following in defense of Planned Parenthood’s illegal organ harvesting racket:
“Abortion is still legal in the great U.S of A. It would be insane not to use fetal tissue 4 science & education in such cases.”
Pointing out Silverman’s gross illogic on the matter, political commentator Ben Shapiro responded with the following brilliant tweet:
“Killing Jews was legal in Nazi Germany. It would have been insane not to use their skin for lamps.”
Brilliantly played, Mr. Shapiro.
9) Margaret Cho. Not to be outdone in the filth-spewing department, the other queen of crass and vile “comedy,” Margaret Cho, brought God into the abortion debate, claiming that he created it. Yep, here’s what Cho wrote in a tweet:
“I do not believe in a God who would consider abortion a sin. God created abortion. As he did all of us. God created choice for all to DECIDE.”
“All” apparently includes everyone except for the unborn babies being aborted, in Cho’s view.
10) Kristen Bell. Actress and singer Kristen Bell made the vaccine industry happy when she made a public statement back in February revealing her militantly pro-vaccine views. Accepting the official narrative on vaccine safety and effectiveness hook, line and sinker, Bell warned her friends that they wouldn’t be allowed to get anywhere near her baby if they didn’t accept her narrow-minded views on vaccines:
“You have to get a whooping cough vaccination if you are going to hold our baby,” Bell stated while promoting a tote concept called “This Bag Saves Lives.” “It’s very simple logic: I believe in trusting doctors, not know-it-alls.”
It should be noted that the whooping cough vaccine has actually been scientifically shown to spread pertussis, putting infants, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems at even greater risk. We can only speculate as to how many friends Bell has lost as a result of her deranged dogmatism.
11) Kris Kardashian. Nobody really takes anything the air-headed Kardashian clan says on their show Keeping Up with the Kardashians seriously – unless, of course, they vocalize support for vaccinations. Earlier in the year, when Kardashian member Khloe expressed concerns about getting the Tdap vaccine along with the rest of her family at the order of sister Kim’s doctor, Kris, the mother, stated in sheer ignorance:
“We’re all getting whooping cough shots, everybody. Let’s go. Come on, get on my bandwagon.”
Mindless peer pressure at its finest.
12) Cecile Richards. The head of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards gave quite the performance in defense of her shamed organization during a recent hearing before a Congressional committee. Defying all logic and reasoning, Richards attempted to defend the illegal actions of her abortion business by claiming:
“Abortion is healthcare.”
Sure it is, Richards. And let’s not forget that war is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength, to quote George Orwell’s acclaimed novel 1984.
13) Michael Moore. Washed-up documentary filmmaker Michael Moore, who’s no stranger to controversy, is apparently convinced that everyone, everywhere belongs to the same religion. But the one he believes we are all members of might surprise you.
In response to growing public support for presidential hopeful and anti-Muslim candidate Donald Trump, Moore stated the following about his definition of equality, which he also printed in shorter form on a sign he waved around outside the front door of Trump Tower in New York City:
“We are all Muslim, just as we are all Mexican, we are all Catholic and Jewish and white and black and every shade in between.”
Keep telling yourself that, Moore.
14) Barbra Streisand. Some of the most outspoken opponents of “gender discrimination” are ironically the most discriminatory members of our society. And perhaps nobody typified this more, at least in 2015, than singer Barbra Streisand, who encouraged her followers to band together and vote for Hillary Clinton for president – simply because Clinton is a female!
It doesn’t matter what Hillary Clinton represents or what her policies are: Streisand just wants people to vote for her because she’s “angry” about women supposedly being underrepresented in politics:
“Gender discrimination drives me crazy,” Streisand stated to the Hollywood Reporter, apparently ignorant of the fact that her proposed solution to her inner demons represents nothing short of anti-male discrimination.
“We [women] have to join forces. Women are nurturers, just by our physiology.”
This may be true, Streisand. But the only thing you’re nurturing is your own apparent insanity.
15) Bill Nye. The “science guy” became the crackpot guy this year after he came out in defense of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), after earlier opposing them. Using disproven arguments to defend their unlabeled use in the food supply (likely while accepting cash from Monsanto in exchange for this about-face position), Nye told the media that biotech hacks are just “farmers” who “want [crops] to come out the way we want them.”
Right. All those billions of dollars in licensing fees gained through patent ownership of plants has nothing to do with it.
Nye adopted a number of other crazy views in 2015 as well, including his now-adherence to the disproven theory that fertilized human eggs developing into human life are somehow not human:
“Many, many, many, many more hundreds of eggs are fertilized than become humans,” Nye stated, inferring that just because some don’t actually develop into adults that all are not even human. Say what?
Nye also tried to tie so-called “climate change” to acts of terrorism, erroneously stating that:
“You can make a very reasonable argument that climate change is not that indirectly related to terrorism.”
We’re all still anxiously awaiting the day that Bill Nye offers up something resembling a cogent argument for this inane position.
16) Neil deGrasse Tyson. Not to be outdone in pseudoscientific pontificating on matters that he clearly doesn’t understand, Neil deGrasse Tyson joins Bill Nye in bizarre and absurd-land, particularly with regard to geoengineering. Departing from his earlier position that the only way to escape the continued demise of our planet would be to literally leave the planet, Tyson offered his solution during a 2015 interview on Real Time with Bill Maher:
“You know what I want to happen? I think it’s not about finding another planet. I think it’s about being masters of geoengineering.”
As our friend over at GeoEngineering Watch, Dane Wigington, has repeatedly shown in his extensive research, geoengineering is the cause of many of our planetary woes, not the solution. But in the eyes of Neil deGrasse Tyson – bring on the chemtrails!
Tyson is also an unabashed worshiper of all things GMO who has repeatedly made crazy “scientific” claims in the media about their use, only to be challenged by actual scientists who aren’t on the financial dole of corporations like Monsanto. And rather than own up to his errors, Tyson blames his failure to thrive in academia on “racism”:
“I know these forces are real and I had to survive them in order to get where I am today,” Tyson lamented way back when, still convinced that his skin color, and not his crackpot views, is the only thing standing in the way of his being anointed as Scientist of the Universe.
Keep dreaming, you crazy shill.
