Did you watch the ‘woke’ Oscars on Sunday?
If not, you are one of the vast majority of Americans who didn’t.
This year’s awards show was the most left-wing political spectacle yet.
The only highlight of the evening was an excellent speech by a truly talented entertainer, Tyler Perry.
His speech implored Americans not to hate others simply because of who they are, what their skin color is, or their profession (including police officers).
Needless to say, he got some polite applause, but it’s doubtful he changed any minds.
The libtard Hollywood elite worship wokeness like a religion, and you know how hard it is to talk to someone about their religion.
But one Hollywood insider pointed out on Monday that if those same people really wanted to influence the country, they shouldn’t alienate more than half of it.
Breitbart News reports:
Filmmaker Amanda Milius told Breitbart News on Monday that Hollywood undermined its own influence over America by abandoning conservatives.
Ambition within the entertainment industry blocks Hollywood insiders from publicly criticizing false orthodoxies espoused by their peers, Milius stated on SiriusXM's Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow, author of Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media's Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption. She noted Tinseltown's decades of direct and indirect left-wing political advocacy.
'What Hollywood is — and what it's always been — is a bunch of people who seek relevance and influence more than anything,' she remarked. 'Nobody's going to say the emperor has no clothes. Nobody is going to turn around and say, 'This thing we've dedicated ourselves to — changing American culture and this sort of cultural Marxist point of view [has] snowballed out of control.’'
Milius pointed to the Oscars ceremony's focus on COVID-19 as illustrative of Hollywood's disconnection from most Americans.
She added, 'They really are just culturally irrelevant, like this weird COVID ceremony performative thing that they did last night about. That was also part of it. It wasn't just the usual wokeness. They also had to do this insane hypochondriac performance while they were awarding their wokeness, which was even weirder. … It was totally bizarre, totally out of touch.'
‘Totally out of touch.’ Perfect. And so true.
That’s why, increasingly, Americans are tuning out the garbage Hollywood churns out these days and relying more on other venues and forms of entertainment.
Let the irrelevant in Tinsel Town revel in their irrelevance.
