Christine Flowers: Finding fault with Mrs. Clooney

Post by Nicky80 on Sun Jan 18 2015, 14:57

Christine Flowers: Finding fault with Mrs. Clooney

So, let me dispense with some disclaimers at the beginning:



1. I think the outside of George Clooney is mega-splendid (to the extent that I make up words to describe it, apparently.) The mish-mash of squishy socialist sensitivity that fills up his insides is not my cup of tea, but that’s irrelevant to this discussion.



2. I love Amal Alamuddin Clooney’s hair. It hurts to look at it, and then back at my own.

3. I love Amal Alamuddin Clooney’s wardrobe. It hurts to look at it, and then back at my own.



4. I love Amal Alamuddin Clooney’s travel itinerary. It hurts to look at it, and … oh just figure it out.



I tell you these things to forestall the inevitable suggestion that what I am about to say is only motivated by the green-eyed (almond-shaped, long-lashed, 20/20, never wore a pair of coke bottles in her life) monster.



Of course I’m a teensy bit jealous of the woman who has become the slightly less attractive half of ”Clamal.” I would not be human if I didn’t envy her lifestyle, her opportunities and her bank account.



Fortunately, that envy is outweighed by annoyance, triggered by the pretentious way in which she goes about the world ridding it of human rights abuses.



Didn’t you know that the lovely Lebanese, who sometimes impersonates Hollywood arm candy, is actually a combination of Mother Teresa, Golda Meir and Maya Anjelou? She carries justice in a Prada bag and stomps her Manolo clad foot on the neck of tyrants.



Snapping up the world’s most eligible bachelor was a tidy trick executed between defending Julian Assange, the Wikileaks Wacko, and helping Greece steal back a bunch of rocks, the Elgin Marbles, from Great Britain. The latter effort is actually rather nervy, given the fact that England gave her family refuge when they fled Lebanon during the civil war.



So much for gratitude.
The thing that really annoys me about Amal isn’t so much her good fortune. The world ain’t fair, as anyone who’s seen the same toothless octogenarian win the lottery in consecutive months knows all too well. I admire brains, and I particularly admire brunette brains.



What gets me writing Facebook posts and articles critical of Mrs. Clooney is the way in which she sweetly, coyly and disingenuously allows people to call her a “human rights lawyer.” It’s as if she’s Emma Lazarus with a business card.



Amal practices a very esoteric sort of law, the kind that doesn’t fit well into the billable hour, ambulance chasing or Dr.Drew habitué brackets. She is apparently quite good at what she does as well, although Julian Assange is still hiding out in some consulate somewhere and the Parthenon is several pebbles short of a new Doric column. But as every lawyer knows, you can’t win ’em all, not even if your new husband can probably buy the Parthenon.



I have no problem with admitting that Amal is an overachiever of mythic proportions, and makes Hillary Clinton look like a slacker in the achievement department.



But one thing about Hil, she was never pretentious enough to pose as the Madonna of Human Rights, righting the wrongs of a twisted (from her perspective) world.



I do immigration law. You’ve heard me talk about some of my asylum clients in the past, usually to highlight the difference between our relatively privileged American whiners and people who’ve suffered real catastrophic harm. I don’t consider myself a human rights lawyer, especially since I get paid for my work. Just like Amal.



So I guess the thing that really upsets me in all of this is the complete and utter lack of humility exhibited by someone who bills herself as the savior of the downtrodden. Lawyers are instruments of both good and bad, and sometimes we have transcendent moments where we carve out a tangible victory from an otherwise sterile quarry of injustice. Even bringing a fractured marriage to a quiet end with a minimum of pain on either side serves to elevate the human condition. But I don’t know of any of my colleagues in the Domestic Relations bar who’d call themselves “human rights lawyers.”



It’s the pretentiousness of the title. It’s the hypocrisy of allowing others to tag you with it while you spend your weekends entertaining guests at Buckingham Palace, or whatever real estate bauble your besotted hubby bought for you. It’s the attempt to remain serious and relevant while rubbing shoulders with the seriously irrelevant.



There is absolutely nothing wrong in fighting the good fight for people, in speaking truth to power, in courting controversy and paying a bloody price like the good men of Charlie Hebdo or of trying to shine a light on injustice.



But doing that requires a sense of how small we are in the face of these great pillars of sorrow, strife and evil. It requires humility, sobriety and true comfort with our small position in the grand scheme of things. Especially when we are provided a privileged platform, as Amal has been, we need to actively shift the focus away from ourselves and toward the oppressed, the disenfranchised or the desperate.



You don’t need designer clothes for that. Mother Teresa did it in simple white cotton. And her hourly rates were unbeatable.

Well once she dispensed with the obvious envy enducing aspects of Amal's looks, snaring George and her life of privilege she makes a tiny point.  But I don't know if I agree that there's anything Amal can do about it.

She's not putting that title on her business cards so what's a gal to do if the media decides to dub her a human rights lawyer?

Lorna- Maybe she could tell the press that she is really uncomfortable with the label, and define for them exactly what kind of a lawyer she really is? Unless. of course, she thinks the description is accurate.

Amal has never presented herself as the savior of the downtrodden or the Madonna of Human Rights. Unfortunately the media has done an excellent job of doing that for her. Which is terribly misleading. Some of her clients do not have the best reputations by any means but her defending their rights to a fair trial should not be questioned.

Flowers can quibble over her style and her haute couture clothes. Many others have too. It is definitely in stark contrast to how people view "human rights" lawyers in general. But I think her criticisms are exaggerated.

Why does she need to define anything she knows what she is, a lawyer plain and simple. And I'm sure that the clients who need her services also know what she is. Amal isn't the first woman attorney to wear designer clothes and won't be the last . Her clothes don't get the job done she does.

George, he tags her as "Human Rights Lawyer"
George, he talk to his family, "Amal is saving the world"
George, he tell press "i'm marrying up"
George, he tell ppl she is in Egypt.
George, he must be held Puppet Master, maker of Amal.  Before him she did just job.
Since George the elevator has not stopped, all George doing.

Do people actually have views on human rights lawyers? When I think lawyer I think someone doing something for people who need help. I never think of what they wear that is just strange to me. I have worked for a couple and never thought about what designer they were wearing .

I'm beginning to think they've both bought into the media hype about her/them - which IMO is sad, because I always thought he had a pretty good grounding in reality and a great bullshit meter. He needs to get back to work and forget about publicizing their relationship.

I find this article unnecessary what is the point the press have given Amal a title oh and she wears designer clothes so do other lawyers. I think it was just a way to tear Amal down I guess women at every level do this to each other.

I think he and Amal are living their lives as they want to . I don't belive he is going out of his way to publicize his life. He's happy. If he wants to exclaim that why not.He should not have to defend himself or Amal . She certainly can defend herself. To respond to the criticism just plays into what the critics want. We don't know what these two do 98% of the time. There is so much more to their lives than we know about. I trust George. Think for the most part he does the right things and leads a respectable life.

I agree Donnamarie, they are enjoying their lives, they aren't doing interviews or out posing at every event.  The press write what they like most of which is nonsense designed to sell papers nothing more.

Does the Delaware Times have a big circulation?

The writer admits from the word go that she's a lawyer who is just a teeny-weeny bit envious, doesn't she?

I actually think that the Clooneys will bring to the wider world causes that would otherwise not get a huge audience. And their message on the red carpet was just the start...........

It has a circulation of about 40,000 and is has the largest suburban circulation in the Philadelphia area. It has liberal political leanings but Ms. Flowers is a conservative. In one article she claims to admire Sarah Palin. No comment. She also wrote with not too much empathy for the women who have chosen to speak out about being assaulted by Bill Cosby.

I really don't know anything else about her. Never heard of her. She certainly is entitled to her opinion though. I just don't agree with her at all. But like LorneDoone said she certainly got our attention.

I'm sure the relatives of the 280 victims that were murdered by her client wouldn't agree with the title" HUMAN RIGHTS LAWYER", and yes I also think George played a big roll in  making her sound like MOTHER THERESA.

I guess it depends on your definition of "human rights lawyer".  If it means ensuring that every human being gets the same right to a fair trial, regardless of the crimes of which they're accused, then she qualifies.

I think team Clooney tried to present Amal as a human rights lawyer but on the Doughty Street Chambers website, wasn't she an international lawyer (ie: a specialist in international law) who does human rights cases?

Either way, I still find it odd that apparently human rights lawyers are apparently subject to different dress code (sack cloth and ashes, it seems) than any other lawyers. Amal comes from a wealthy family, has a very high paying job and is married to a wealthy man. And she dresses that way.

Of course she qualifies, and maybe the money she made mattered more than the murder victims and their families. She can defend whomever she wants but on this one IMO he didn't deserve a human rights attorney.

Amal chose her job and she is good at it all attorney's can be disliked for handling cases that are horrible and trying to get their clients justice. She is no different to me than any other attorney she gets paid for her services.

Honestly, this is such a boring article. The woman said in the beginning of the article that she is jealous of Amal. So this being the case, little or no attention has to be paid to such nonsense. 
F.e. "So I guess the thing that really upsets me in all of this is the complete and utter lack of humility exhibited by someone who bills herself as the savior of the downtrodden."
When did Amal says this? Never. So the translation is really: I am so jealous of her and I wish I could be her.

Uhhh, no. I was referring to the writer's idea that she spends too much money on clothes. I can't see any reason why 'human rights lawyers' have to wear cheap clothes.

What's that old saying... any publicity is better than no publicity.  Still think they're trying to hard to show they're a happy couple.

Clooney and Amal created the hype in the first place so articles like this one are just an inevitable and perfectly reasonable response to that type of hype. You reap what you sow.

The sooner the 'deification' of Amal and the fawning sycophancy by the media stops, the better for everyone concerned. She's a professional woman doing a professional job, nothing more, nothing less.

Agree re both of them needing to get back to their 'day jobs'.

I disagree that Amal and George created the hype. They are living their lives and because George is such a public celebrity the media has followed every movement that he and now Amal have made out in public. It's inevitable that they are going to be followed and covered. He's not making phone calls to the press and saying hey follow me. Some here do think he does that. I don't.

He could have gotten married at his house in Como instead of Venice to hide from the press, he could have chosen not to go out to dinner with Amal, he could have chosen to come solo to the Globes, etc. to avoid the attention but I don't think he wants the press to dictate his life.

Well we'll just have to agree to disagree then because he most definitely did hype this relationship to the max from the start.  I could cite numerous articles/occasions/sources but really, life's too short, and I'm not out to prove anything or change anyone's opinion, just expressing my opinion on why they, as a couple, generate the negative and eye-rolling press that they do.

I think they're very well suited though.

Exactly.

And, as I recall, fans have been making the exact same claims for every relationship he's been in. Whoever George is in a relationship with gets huge press coverage, no matter who they are or what they do. That just comes as a side effect of being with him and is out of everyone's hands.

GEORGE  CLOONEY  AND AMAL  ALAMUDDIN  NOT DIVORCING, DESPITE  TABLOID  REPORT. 


Roberta Ferguson


JANUARY 21, 2015 ENTERTAINMENT 0


image: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are featured on the cover of the latest issue of In Touch Weekly and according to the magazine, the happily married couple are already in the middle of a divorce.


Clooney and Alamuddin tied the knot in a ceremony in Italy on September 27, 2014 among family and friends. Now, the tabloid is reporting that they are going through a $200 million divorce. The tabloid claims that their marriage is “beset with jealousy, arguments and other relationship wrecking behavior.”



In addition, the tabloid says that “Amal’s disdain for Hollywood and many of George’s pals, her increasingly diva-like behavior, as well as fights over starting a family, have friends convinced it’s all gone wrong for the couple. I think they’ll divorce. There’s no way it can last. And it’s going to be very expensive for George.”


Of Clooney and Alamuddin’s love for each other, a friend said, “He’s trying hard. But behind the scenes, he and Amal are fighting. She has been trying to control George’s every move. Everyone thought they were the perfect couple, but it’s all blowing up in George’s face. The fairy tale is over.”


According to Gossip Cop, the rumors are nothing but ridiculous gossip. A rep for the actor told them, “These stories are made up for the sole purpose of selling magazines.”


George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are not divorcing, despite what the cover of In Touch Weekly says. This is the same tabloid who Photoshopped a picture of Bruce Jenner so that he appeared to be in full drag. What do you think of the Clooney/Alamuddin divorce rumors? He professed his love for his wife during the Golden Globe Awards and has previously denied any want for children with anyone. While she may be pushing to have children, we don't  see a divorce in their future any time soon.

True , no matter who George married the nonsense would have happened , I feel bad for them though they don't give interviews or talk to the press so now the only thing they can come up with is that they are divorcing. Build you up to tear you down that is how the press works no real information make it up.

Yes, we all knew these stories were going to start as soon as Amal and George married. The press has been trying to marry off George for years! Ta dah. Now it's time for divorce court. So if the two aren't divorcing then it's making a baby. Suspect at some point there will be stories about how Amal wants kids but George doesn't. Or Amal can't get pregnant and it's causing stress on the marriage. What I want to know in all these cheesy tabloids where do they find these "friends" who are willing to spill about George's personal life. Such crap!

Would normally agree, but.. during the engagement/wedding plans, didn't a friend leak information that turned out to be true.  Things like Sept date, etc.

Maybe this friend  has access to information with an axe to grind.  If anything is true in Hollywood, is a friend isn't necessarily an actual friend.  How many people have dropped a dime to leak a story to their own benefit.

Cindy was the one who "dropped" the September date.  She definitely doesn't have an axe to grind as far as George is concerned.

Yes, it was Cindy Crawford. And I believe some information about the post-wedding functions got leaked from someone in Lebanon which came directly from an invitation they received so unless George and Amal are now writing down and mailing their supposed marital woes to the whole clan, no one is going to know about it.

As much as I have my doubts about this marriage, I truly and honestly believe George wouldn't have got married unless he intended to make it last for some time.  And that holds true for whether we believe it's a fake relationship for PR purposes or a genuine love match.

I think so too.

ditto what Katie said.   I just don't see George going thru with a marriage regardless of their reasons for marrying,  if he thought it wouldn't last.  seems like the dissolution of his first marriage was so painful that it seemed to take many years for him to heal from it I don't see him repeating it.

I also agree with Katidot and iamnoone. Very much. I think George came to some realizations and was WILLING to change his lifestyle for Amal. I think he will work very hard to make this marriage work.

As I've said before, and speaking from experience, arriving into one's fifties
can bring many changes to one's life.
Unexpected exciting changes too......like buying a new non-dusty sofa !

I think George found Amal at the right time and she was the right woman for him. I also think George has done a lot of growing up and realizes that marriage takes work, I also think he will work hard to make this one last .
