Jamie Lee Curtis Compares Christine Ford to Her Character From 'Halloween'
Most horror fans, myself included, are all sorts of amped up for the new Halloween reboot. After all, anything is an improvement over the last installment. Watching Busta Rhymes yell "trick or treat, motherf**ker" and dishing out kung fu moves on Michael Myers. I digress.
Naturally, Jamie Lee Curtis is out on a media tour to promote the flick. She made her way onto The View this morning to discuss the new installment. Which devolved into her comparing The Shape to Brett Kavanaugh. Laurie Strode to Christine Ford.
I kid you not:
Is Brett Kavanaugh like the knife-wielding psychopath Michael Myers in the Halloween franchise? Jamie Lee Curtis, the star of five films in the horror series, is appearing on multiple media outlets to link the fictional stalking of her character, Laurie Strode, to the real-world accusations in the Kavanaugh case.
Appearing on The View, Curtis compared, “The heroine of Halloween is a woman who suffered a trauma when she was 17, like Dr. Ford when she was 17.” Trying to make the connection, the actress touted the topicality of the new Halloween: “But it’s actually about something. The movie is about trauma.”
Cue "what the hell" head tilt in 3...2...1...
Yes, you heard her right. Jamie Lee Curtis is trying to make Halloween out to be some kind of feminist parable. Instead of a popcorn flick about a guy with a Captain Kirk mask and a big friggin' knife. Calling her comparison a stretch is like labeling Tess Holliday 'Helen of Troy.' Wouldn't that be an interesting retelling of the Trojan War?
Then again, maybe it's not so much of a stretch. Judging from the complete lack of evidence, Christine Ford's story appears to be just as fictional as Laurie Strode's.
Jamie Lee and her fellow lefties try to claim some sort of "pro-woman" high ground. Yet, she has no problem shamelessly using Christine Ford to plug her movie. Though, I can't say that's all too surprising. Seeing as the entire Democrat Party tried using Ford to railroad a Supreme Court confirmation. For Democrats, ethics are just fictional tropes like the classy girl falling for the poor boy with the heart of gold. Or to stick with the theme, a lone teen girl in a dark house wandering into a room with a mass murdering freak. Who might actually just be drinking beer.
Here's the problem with "believing all women" though:
