Leftists are resorting to insane arguments to defend Will Smith’s shameful Oscar meltdown

Published

Will Smith became the major story of the Academy Awards, and for all the wrong reasons.

Few will remember that he took home the trophy for Best Actor.

Now, leftists are resorting to insane arguments to defend Smith’s shameful Oscar meltdown.

Will Smith perhaps created the most shocking moment in the history of live television when he slapped comedian Chris Rock in the middle of the broadcast.

Smith took exception to a joke Rock told about his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, after initially laughing.

It didn’t take long for the obnoxious left-wing hot takes to roll in.

CNN analyst Asha Rangappa grabbed the low-hanging Democratic fruit and related the incident to Donald Trump.

Rangappa tweeted, “So did like anyone walk out after that happened??? Or are we getting an independent psychological case study on how Trump got normalized?”

Trump had nothing to do with a roomful of Hollywood celebrities at the Oscars.

The only thing that has been normalized is meeting speech with violence if the cause is appropriately left-wing enough.

Because Rock made fun of Smith’s “disability” (she has alopecia), her husband was justified in attacking Rock.

The left-wing hot takes got even worse from there.

Janice Gassam Asare, senior contributor at Forbes who specializes in the cult of DIE (diversity, inclusivity, equity), wrote a piece titled: “Why Are Jokes Always At The Expense Of Black Women?

In the eye-rolling piece, she argued that “Alopecia can be particularly challenging for Black people because of the cultural significance of hair within the Black community. Black women and femmes often feel like they have to adhere to societal standards of beauty, which means hair that more closely mimics white standards of beauty.”

That was not even the worst think piece on the incident.

Fellow Forbes contributor Maia Niguel Hoskin, who also specializes in DIE, somehow blamed white supremacy.

Hoskin wrote, “This is about a much larger systemic issue rooted in white supremacist culture designed to police the behavior of Blacks amongst the who’s who in Hollywood and beyond. Respectability politics suggest that equity and fair treatment require that Black people — both inside and outside of Hollywood — conduct ourselves in a manner deemed acceptable to whites . . . [P]erhaps there is space to challenge the system and the cultural norms and expectations that have created a pressure cooker for repressed and stereotyped emotions and behaviors of people of color.”

The radical Left keeps coming up with new ways to be ridiculous.

Democrats are attempting to take out this conservative journalist with a truly disgusting smear campaign

Published

Democrats are going all-in on censorship as a political strategy.

They know their ideas are radical and unpopular, so they have to silence dissent.

And Democrats are attempting to take out this conservative journalist with a truly disgusting smear campaign.

Democrats have been on a crusade to ensure that a repeat of the 2016 election never happens again.

Former President Donald Trump broke the Left’s stranglehold on the corporate-controlled press by using social media to spread his message.

In response, leftists have decided that online censorship is the only way to combat Trump and counter-narrative voices – because as far as Democrats are concerned, if Americans are left to their own devices, they might just end up agreeing with Republicans.

And Democrats’ behavior in the culture war suggests that’s precisely what’s happening.

That’s why the popular Twitter account Libs of TikTok went from relative obscurity to 1.5 million followers in no time flat.

Libs of TikTok mainly posts videos of left-wing radicals spewing their radical ideology in their own words.

Perhaps no political strategy is as effective as holding up a mirror to the Left.

The so-called “mainstream” media has attempted to “cancel” Libs of TikTok on numerous occasions, and they’re up to it again.

This time, Libs of TikTok is being blamed for the horrific mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Colorado Springs.

Because many of the leftists featured on the account are LGBTQ+ activists, this somehow means that Libs of TikTok is responsible for the shooting.

At least, that was the argument that NBC reporter Ben Collins made on Peacock’s MTP NOW.

“I will say that the months-long campaign of targeting trans and gay rights events and supports and things like drag brunches, that has been a persistent narrative by the anti-LGBQ right in the last six months to the last year,” Collins said. “One of the main drivers of that hate is an account called Libs of TikTok.”

In the eyes of Democrats, it’s not the shooter’s fault – it’s Republican’s fault.

Leftists always use this dishonest tactic as a way to get people to keep quiet about their unapproved opinions.

“You said this, but we — I think we can’t emphasize this enough,” MPT NOW host Kristen Welker replied. “This was during a drag night.”

“And also hours before what they call an all-ages drag brunch which is probably the number one target of these anti-LGBTQ events recently,” Collins added. “For example, the Proud Boys will go and protest any drag brunch, any drag story hour, anything that a child might go to meet a drag queen, just to show them they’re human beings and people. They go there, and they read Dr. Seuss there. They read regular books, but it is read by a drag queen, and they have breakfast. It is not some hypersexual event, but that’s what it’s viewed as on the far right.”

Collins is either a useful idiot, or he’s complicit because that’s not what the architects of Drag Queen Story Hour (DQSH) say.

“Trans education” academic Harper Keenan, and DQSH performer “Lil Miss Hot Mess,” wrote in a well-known academic journal, Curriculum Inquiry, “We propose that DQSH offers a particular kind of queer framework – what we call drag pedagogy – for teaching and learning that extends beyond traditional approaches to LGBT curricular inclusion.”

“The themes within drag pedagogy, applicable beyond the context of drag itself, move away from vocabulary lessons and the token inclusion of LGBT heroes to begin to engage deeper understandings of queer cultures and envision new modes of being together,” Keenan continued. “We emphasize that drag pedagogy resists didactic instruction and is not prescriptive. Instead, it artfully invites children into building communities that are more hospitable to queer knowledge and experience.”

The goal is to indoctrinate kids into “queer culture” and make them “hospitable to queer knowledge.”

No one cared about drag shows when they were just for adults, but as soon as kids became the target, the pushback arrived.

Disney just doubled down on “woke” propaganda with a shocking move no one saw coming

Published

Disney is destroying its brand.

The company bent the knee to radical leftists long ago and the company’s reputation may never recover.

Now Disney just doubled down on “woke” propaganda with a shocking move no one saw coming.

In a shocking move, the Walt Disney Company has fired CEO Bob Chapek, and rehired his predecessor, Bob Iger, to lead the company once again.

As a company, Disney has had many missteps recently, and Chapek is apparently the man who will be taking the fall for those failures.

Chapek, who reportedly wanted Disney to be apolitical, was dragged into culture war fights by radical left-wing activists within the company, and wealth management behemoth BlackRock.

As possibly the most powerful company in the world, BlackRock has made it their mission to strong-arm companies into complying with ESG (environmental, social, and governance) guidelines.

However, adhering to “woke” ESG principles does not make for good business.

“Iger stepped aside as CEO in February 2020, handing the reins to Chapek, who previously led the company’s theme parks and consumer products division,” The Hollywood Reporter reported. “Iger continued to serve as executive chairman of the company, stepping down from that position just 11 months ago.

“[Chapek’s] tenure has also been rocky, marked with controversies and distractions,” the report continued. “From the aggressive campaign against Marvel star Scarlett Johansson that resulted in a settlement over pay for Black Widow, to Disney’s response (or lack thereof) to Florida’s so-called ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, Chapek has had to deal with a wide array of public misfires during his relatively brief tenure atop the company.”

Chapek initially wanted to stay out of the scrape over Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’s Parental Rights in Education bill, which was smeared by the Left as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill despite the word “gay” never appearing in the legislation’s text.

The law simply prevents government school employees from discussing sexual orientation and gender identity with students younger than fourth grade, which was such a reasonable piece of legislation, even a majority of Democrats supported it, as well.

Chapek did not trust his instincts and half-stepped into the controversy, which satisfied no one.

Iger, a long-time Democrat donor who previously floated the idea of running for President, is certainly more left-wing than Chapek, so don’t expect him to scale back the “woke” content.

After all, if Iger were to roll back the “woke” content, it would serve as an outright admission that Chapek’s apolitical impulse was correct, yet he was forced to be the fall guy nonetheless.

The writing was on the wall for the now former CEO when it was reported that Igor called turning over the company over to Chapek one of his “worst business decisions.”

If Bob Iger does double down on “woke,” Chapek’s tenure could end up looking like a success by comparison.

Don Lemon went absolutely bonkers on these Jeopardy! contestants for the most unbelievable reason imaginable

Published

Talking heads in the so-called “mainstream” media went insane after the election of Donald Trump.

Their default position became furious anger about all things.

Now Don Lemon went absolutely bonkers on these Jeopardy! contestants for the most unbelievable reason imaginable.

Apparently, CNN’s Don Lemon has a lot to be angry about.

Former President Donald Trump announced he was running for President for a third time, Republicans reclaimed the U.S. House, and Lemon lost his primetime status after being demoted to a morning show he now shares with many other left-wing talking heads.

But now, Lemon is riled up over the fact that Jeopardy! contestants were not familiar with newly confirmed Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson.

Jeopardy! host and former champion, Ken Jennings, gave the clue: “She’s the first black woman on the Supreme Court, and the first Justice to have been a federal public defender.”

All three of the contestants – who were previous Jeopardy! champions taking part in the show’s Tournament of Champions – were stumped.

Lemon and his new morning show co-hosts, Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins, couldn’t contain their furor.

“These are smart people!” Lemon yelled, snatching off his glasses.

“She was just confirmed,” Harlow added. “It’s been in the news!”

The fact that none of the contestants knew the answer should’ve been a wakeup call for the CNN talking heads that not everyone’s day-to-day life revolves around politics.

Most people don’t sit around all day and watch CNN, as the network’s ratings consistently show.

But self-proclaimed “journalists” – specifically those on television “news” – are such narcissists, they truly believe the world revolves around them and what they care about.

The fact that none of the contestants knew Justice Jackson’s name also shows that just because the corporate-controlled press claims over and over that something is “historic” does not make it so.

Women and black Americans have served on the Supreme Court for decades, so Jackson’s confirmation isn’t the earth-shattering, glass ceiling-breaking moment Democrats believe.

After all, Justice Sonia Sotomayor, a woman of color who was appointed by a black President, has already sat on the Court for over a decade.

Perhaps the most notable moment of Justice Jackson’s confirmation hearing was the fact that she could not define the word “woman.”

When Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) asked Jackson if she could define the term “woman,” the Justice replied by admitting, “I’m not a biologist.”

As crazy as that is, Justice Jackson’s answer wasn’t even entirely satisfactory to the Left.

The “correct” answer is that not even a biologist can define the term “woman” because there is no definition – a woman is anyone who says they are a woman.

Jeopardy! recently got in hot water after including a clue referencing the brutal murder of Gabby Petito at the hands of her boyfriend, who later committed suicide and left a confession note.

However, contestants not knowing the name of Justice Jackson is certainly far more offensive in the eyes of the radical Left.
