Meryl Streep Blasts Disney For Anti-Semitism While Praising Emma Thompson

The National Board of Review had its annual pre-Golden Globes dinner. Emma Thompson is up for a Best Actress award for Disney's "Saving Mr. Banks", where she plays P.L. Travers, the creator of "Mary Poppins," and Meryl Streep was there to heap praises on good 'ol Emma.  Meryl's 9 minute speech included a rant against Walt Disney himself for his anti-women, anti-Semitic stances, all the while calling Emma "practically a saint." Meryl even wrote a poem for her buddy Emma titled "An Ode to Emma, Or What Emma is Owed."

Calling Emma practically a saint all the while criticizing Disney for supporting anti-Semitic lobbying groups?  Doesn't Meryl know that Emma is queen of the anti-Israel Boycott and Divestment movement, which is just another form of anti-Semitism?

Meryl, Meryl.
