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

Published

on

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.

What Wanda Sykes just said about middle America is so dumb it will make your head hurt

Published

Left-wing entertainers aren’t the sharpest tools in the shed. 

When it comes to things like our Constitution and our founding principles, their ignorance is on full display. 

And what Wanda Sykes just said about middle America is so dumb it will make your head hurt.

Appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Wanda Sykes went on a rant about the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade

“It’s like the country is no longer a democracy, right?” Sykes claimed. “It’s no longer majority rule.”

Of course, America has never been a democracy based on majority (ie. mob) rule. 

Our Founders understood that tyranny of the majority was a threat to individual rights. 

As anyone who didn’t sleep through high school civics class can tell you, America is a Constitutional Republic with three separate branches of a limited federal government. 

Supreme Court decisions were never supposed to be based on the whims of the majority. 

All the Court did was reverse the unconstitutional decision that forced the states to allow abortion-on-demand, but the Left is going ballistic.  

Sykes then made the bizarre claim that blue states like California are “footing the bill” for the country and therefore should get to make all the rules. 

“The problem is that middle stuff — it’s those states in the middle, that red stuff,” she claimed. “Why do they get to tell us what to do, when the majority of us live in New York, California?”

Of course, no one is telling anyone in New York or California what they can do. 

Those blue states will continue the barbaric practice of dismembering and slaughtering children in the womb up until birth.

Of course, the “majority” certainly doesn’t support that level of pro-abortion extremism, but you won’t hear Wanda Sykes and other leftists complain about that. 

Sykes’ rant shows that leftists can’t just be content to drive their blue states into moral and fiscal bankruptcy, they demand to be able to inflict their misery on all of us. 

Thankfully, none of America’s Founders shared this view.

One CEO is finally smacking Democrats over the head with the truth about modern leftists

Published

on

It’s jaw-dropping the way Democrats have allowed themselves to be hoodwinked.

They are letting leftists drive the party off a cliff. 

Now one major media company CEO is finally smacking Democrats over the head with the truth about modern leftists. 

The only thing more shocking than what leftists are up to these days is the way they’ve hijacked an entire political movement. 

In one of the most shocking—and inexplicable—political reversals in history fascists have completely taken over the political left. 

A movement that was pushing the boundaries of free speech and decency a few decades ago is now doing its level best to silence all of us. 

Ironically, the media industry which was built on shock value is now participating in its own destruction. 

Most major players are allowing leftists to call the shots—no matter how illogical or damaging.  

But one massive company’s CEO is breaking rank to tell the truth. 

Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos is fighting back as two major comedians come under fire from LGBTW activists. 

“I think it’s very important to the American culture generally to have free expression,” he told the New York Times.

If leftists get their own way, the entertainment business won’t have any actual content to broadcast. 

“We’re programming for a lot of diverse people who have different opinions and different tastes and different styles, and yet we’re not making everything for everybody,” Sarandos said. “We want something for everybody, but everything’s not going to be for everybody.”

Sarandos made waves at Netflix when he sent out a memo reinforcing the company’s commitment to free speech. 

He said it’s shocking that his biggest supporters focused on free speech are conservatives. 

“It used to be a very liberal issue, so it’s an interesting time that we live in,” he said. “I always said if we censor in the US, how are we going to defend our content in the Middle East?”

Sarandos is spot on. 

Back in 1981, MTV aired “Video Killed the Radio Star” pushing society to free speech in radical new ways. 

Nearly 41 years later, leftists have become mask Nazis obsessed with policing every word that comes out of anyone’s mouth.

No doubt, most conservatives would much rather be arguing about some expletive used on television rather than discovering that middle schoolers are being charged with sexual harassment for uttering the wrong pronoun. 

What most media company leaders seem to be missing is that the current leftist regime is working toward causing American media businesses to implode. 

Netflix is already experiencing this as radical activists throw everything they have at destroying the network’s most popular comedian, David Chappelle.

The crazed campaign to get rid of him along with fellow comedian Ricky Gervais is only the beginning of a survival battle every media company will ultimately end up embroiled in as cancel culture sweeps through to reshape the industry.

An iconic magazine shows its true colors by cutting Melania Trump out of history

Published

on

Fashion magazines are basically high school cliques all grown up. 

Editors wield vast amounts of power and reshape culture to suit their every whim. 

Now, an iconic magazine is showing its true colors by cutting Melania Trump out of history. 

The subtle, yet ferocious jabs sent Trump’s way continue long after her husband left office. 

When the New York City elite gathered for the Met Gala recently, Jill Biden was front and center being honored as first lady and invited to give a speech before the event at the opening of a Vogue art exhibit. 

And bystanders were quick to note that a pre-Met Gala speech was yet another honor leftist elites were careful to avoid extending to Melania Trump. 

As She Knows put it, “it was clear that the ongoing snub of former First Lady Melania Trump was still in full effect.”

Michelle Obama also enjoyed the honor of opening an exhibit ahead of New York City’s most important social event back in 2014. 

But Melania apparently isn’t part of the grown-up version of the mean-girls clique. 

Of course, it wasn’t always that way. 

Back in 2005, Melania was featured on Vogue’s cover in what was advertised as an “exclusive” scoop on Donald Trump’s new bride. 

That was before her husband stormed Washington, D.C. and started draining The Swamp. 

Now, the former model turned first lady is persona non-grata. 

The magazine’s “First Ladies in Vogue” feature conveniently cut Melania out of high fashion history.

“According to longtime Vogue staffer and former friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff in her tell-all book Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship With the First LadyMelania was offered a feature interview, but there was no ‘guarantee that Melania would appear on the cover,’ she wrote. That may sound unfair to Trump fans, but not every First Lady was given the cover of the magazine,” She Knows reported. 

Want to guess who did make the cover? Predictably, Jill Biden, Michelle Obama, and Hillary Clinton all made the cut. 

Meanwhile, neither Laura Bush or Barbara Bush were given front cover real estate.

The partisan politics at play are obvious when you’re looking for them.

However, we can guess most of Vogue’s readers aren’t political scientists, but rather women looking for social signaling cues to help them gain acceptance in society. 

The magazine’s snub of Republican women—especially a woman who has refused to go against her husband’s conservative take like Barbara and Laura Bush had a tendency to do—speaks loudly of what will and won’t be tolerated in society.
