During Meryl Streep’s long-winded speech attack on Donald Trump and his supporters during the Golden Globes, she talked about the diversity of Hollywood and how it is “crawling with outsiders and foreigners.” Then, she proceeded to list the birthplaces of some of her esteemed colleagues. Streep was very specific in mentioning the countries they each were from except for one: “Natalie Portman was born in Jerusalem.”

Was leaving Israel off a harmless omission or was it intentional? Many believe it was on purpose, including Portman’s agent, who when asked by the Washington Free Beacon if Portman was born in Israel, gave an emphatic answer.

As the Beacon noted:

Chris Andrews, Portman’s representative at the Creative Artists Agency (CAA), gave the Washington Free Beacon an emphatic “YES” when asked whether Portman was born in Israel in a stinging rebuke to Julia Child impersonator Meryl Streep’s anti-Israel speech at the Golden Globes.

The Beacon also explained how intentional the anti-Israel Left is in its tactics:

Severing Jerusalem from Israel is a tactic of anti-Zionists who advocate for a Palestinian State with East Jerusalem as its capital. The Obama administration stripped “Israel” from the dateline Jerusalem in an official communication from the funeral of former Israeli president Shimon Peres last fall.

Apparently, Streep only likes a certain kind of Hollywood “outsider.” After all, liberal tolerance is defined in the moment and is always subject to change.
