For the left, birth control and abortion are priorities. There too many children in the world, so women must be chemically spayed, or children aborted, to keep more from being born, so the argument goes. Wombs must be sanitized to keep women in the workplace, instead of “enslaved” by home and children. And religious fuddy-duddies must be compelled to subsidize same.
Hollywood’s been a den of iniquity and anti-American sentiment for many, many years – since its inception for the former and since the 1960s for the latter. Hence, why actions have been taken against them in the past. Still though, even with that long history of wrongness, Hollywood can manage to shock my sensibilities. In this case, it’s their new, “woke” requirement for the Best Picture award.
Forget the quality or “importance” of the film. First, its creators have to meet all the racial, gender, and sexual proclivity quotas for its creation. 🙄 And, ever so ironically, this is likely the beginning of Hollywood’s very own Blacklist.
Yeah, this is originally from The Babylon Bee, which is a satire site much in a similar vein to The Onion and Duffel Blog. It’s sadly believable though. The sorts running Hollywood are the sorts who would do something like stripping Schindler’s List of its Best Motion Picture award for not having enough LGBTQ+ characters, people of color, and other “oppressed groups.”
The celebrities of both Hollywood and the NFL thought that their opinions mattered, that those opinions trumped their performance of their jobs in what are service industries. They spoke their narrative, which they proclaim as Truth, to Power and Power – real power, the power of the People and the People’s purse – responded.
Recently, in response to the pathetic outrage of the “Black Community” over the lack of Black Oscar nominees, Stacy Dash once again spoke truth to what passes for power among the Blacks within America’s borders. And, of course, once again the drums are beating and both the Blacks and their White Liberal enablers are attacking and vilifying Ms. Dash for voicing a truth that is contrary to the orthodoxy of Black Identity, steeped as it in special protections and victimhood.
It was a quite simple truth that Ms. Dash spoke as well:
We have to make up our minds. Either we want to have segregation or integration, and if we donâ€™t want segregation, then we have to get rid of channels like BET and the BET Awards and the Image Awards, where youâ€™re only awarded if youâ€™re black.
If it were the other way around, weâ€™d be up in arms. Itâ€™s a double standard. There shouldnâ€™t be a black history month. Weâ€™re Americans, period.
— Stacy Dash
Of course, it was the stark simplicity of Ms. Dash’s statement that, more than anything else, fired up the ever-angry and ever-aggrieved “Black Community.” It presented them with a clear and unassailable by logic choice: segregation or assimilation; being Black or being American. This is not something that they can tolerate because their culture’s very identity is based upon not making that choice but, instead, demanding to have it both ways.
Essentially, in my opinion, the Blacks want to be segregated in that they want to behave however they wish to behave, irrespective of whether or not it fits in with the normative values and mores of American society yet, at the same time, they never want those behaviors to in any way negatively impact their personal or communal outcomes, hence integration.
And before any fool claims that I can’t speak of Blacks as if they’re monolithic in outlook, any Black – as Ms. Dash has proven – that doesn’t adhere to their orthodoxy is declared “Not Black Enough.”
Thus, I can speak so.Â It is, after all, by the “Black Community’s” own tacit admission a matter of culture and ideology, not genetics.
It’s a simple American truth, you are or become a part of us or you don’t. We don’t easily accept any middle ground when it comes to assimilation. This is a truth that the “Black Community” both fears and hates. Hence, they will attack any Black, such as Stacy Dash, that openly accepts this truth and speaks it aloud. Indeed, they have an entire well-established lexicon of epithets for such apostates.
