Hollywood hypocrisy has been evident whether you have dealt directly with any of its many influencers, or have observed from a distance. Hollywood has consistently and sanctimoniously forgiven itself and its money-makers whether it was on mistreatment of women, or minorities, or the abuse of those too young to defend themselves, or the sexualization of young women. No levels of immorality, or depravity have been too low for consideration as long as cash was in the offing. Hollywood has for a century played impresario to American culture, or what Hollywood decided was American culture. Presented often enough, repeated often enough, and delivered through giant theatre screens of televisions, whatever “it” was, became so. We became accustomed, or we became numb, as the powerful, unequalled Hollywood PR machine sold us whatever socio-political poison could entertain us, successfully parting us from our cash. Now Hollywood is going All-In on the cash sell-out.

This has been bugging me. This has been on my conscience for the last 2 hours. I apologize. I apologize for my cultural appropriation. Even though I was born in the United States and adopted and raised by a white dad, my ethnic makeup is still “not from here”. I apologize for my insensitivity 42… Read more »
Democrats have for years accused conservatives of conducting a war on women. Seeped in hypocrisy and oozing with deception, this assertion has been conducted with help from a witless media, and with assistance from the influential socialist enclave of Hollywood. I use the term “hollywood” inclusively here — herding into this corral, both the players and the products of the entertainment industry.
Even nigh 7 years out of office and liberals and leftists cannot leave George W. Bush alone. Bush Derangement Syndrome must be an incurable lifetime dis ease. On the heels of 2010’s “Fair Game”, Hollyweird comes out with another progressive’s fantasy, attempting to reinforce a discredited narrative. A leftist movie, made by leftists, for leftists… Read more »
“I believe in American exceptionalism, just as I suspect that the Brits believe in British exceptionalism and the Greeks believe in Greek exceptionalism.” –President Obama America. The indispensable nation. The last best hope. Last week: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was asked by a reporter on Thursday whether or not America is “great.” Trump’s campaign… Read more »
The EPA now has a plan to cut the planet-threatening phenomena known as airplane emissions (H/T Stephen Kruiser): The Obama administration is set to announce that it will require new rules to cut emissions from airplanes, expanding a quest to tackle climate change that has included a string of significant regulations on cars, trucks and… Read more »
I don’t watch the Academy Awards, or any awards shows for that matter. Apparently, most of you probably didn’t either – ratings are down 18% from last year. However, I have to admit that the post-ceremony coverage has been pretty entertaining, as we’ve gotten to watch many of the left’s various professional victimhood classes turn… Read more »
For a country that’s been engaged in two major theaters of war for around the last 13 years, much of the service and sacrifice has been made by the true 1%’ers. A 2013 Pew Research article reports that only a 5th of the Congress at the time had any military experience, themselves. Not all that… Read more »
Whatever the truth about Chris Kyle (and I suspect, like most, the real Chris Kyle was a complex person; and lived tall tales while fabricating others), he is an American hero. My understanding of the film is that it’s not meant to make a political statement. But I suppose everything under the sun is political… Read more »
Two were satirical in nature. One was wishful thinking. The official responses to them could not have been more different. Sony has canceled the release of the “The Interview”, a movie about the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, in response to terror threats made by those who call themselves the “Guardians of Peace.”… Read more »
