Finally, we have a group of people who are famous because they’re hot and know how to read things other people wrote for them educating us on politics and social issues. Even better, they have set out to solve an issue they stayed quiet about for years and years.
The Oscars, once a night to award the most successful movies of the year, has now turned into guilty celebrities telling us how wonderful they are and giving awards to the most politically correct movies they can.
The opening monologue should have looked something like this: “Let us not discuss the fact that as multi-millionaire celebrities we could have stepped in and done something about Harvey Weinstein, Hollywood’s worst kept secret. Let us also not discuss the open secret we chose to allow regarding “the casting couch” where young actors and actresses are asked to perform sexually in order to get a role. Instead let us talk about a hashtag we didn’t create, based on the crimes we permitted, to show the world how wonderful we really are”
This would have at least been an honest few statements. The fact of the matter is that if the public cared at all about celebrity’s political opinion, Hillary Clinton would be the president of the United States. But no one cares because celebrities are just glorified dancing monkeys who are good at memorizing things other people wrote for them.
Hopefully soon these award shows will understand this fact and go back to entertaining, and leave the virtue-signalling behind.
