We Are Moving Backwards in Time

Sally Field is politically relevant.

Sally Field praised mothers when she won an Emmy for lead actress in a drama series but also let her anti-war sentiments surface with a God-related swear word.

"And, let's face it, if the mothers ruled the war, there would be no (expletive) wars in the first place," Field said.

Here's the video: Field painfully fumbles around for her words and wrestles with the invisible orchestra then gets censored. She had no regrets, either:

"I have no comment other than, 'Oh, well.' I said what I wanted to say. I wanted to pay homage to the mothers of the world. And I very very seriously think that if mothers ruled the world we wouldn't be sending our children off to be slaughtered."

When she was pressed for further comment, she added, "Too bad. That's a shame. And I think I probably shouldn't have said the 'god' in front of the 'damn.'

"If they bleep it, oh, well. I'll just say it somewhere else."

It could have been worse. She could have blamed all wars on Zionist hoodlums. For that we'll probably have to wait for HBO's inevitable miniseries David Chase's Mearsheimer and Walt.

The FCC has previously excused the "G-D" word on prime time TV, but the context would have created a fight for Fox (the network broadcasting the show). If you give enough of a shit to learn more, check out Jeff Jarvis.
