Goodness! This was one amazing night.
Will Smith, an actor who was broadcast live from the Academy Awards, slapped Chris Rock on the face while he walked up the podium. When Smith returned to his seat, he unleashed a profanity-laced tirade — muted by the show’s producer — at Rock.
Rock did what to justify the attack. He told a joke about Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. “Jada, I love ya,” Rock said. “‘G.I. Jane 2,’ can’t wait to see it.” The original film stars Demi Moore, with a shaved head, playing a Navy special operations trainee. Rock’s joke referred to Pinkett Smith’s shaven head due to hair loss caused by alopecia, a condition she publicly revealed years ago. Rock said he didn’t know anything about the condition.
Rock didn’t know that the crack was a joke. Rock, after all is a comedian. He tells jokes. He was simply doing his job. Smith was actually laughing right after the joke. He quickly discovered that Smith’s wife was not laughing and he launched the attack.
Rock made a joke about Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and their husband-and-wife roles, just before Rock gave the slap. Both of them were up for an award. Rock joked that Cruz and Bardem might have marital problems if they won. Bardem was not able to storm the stage.
That night, hosts and presenters took shots at Florida for its supposed “don’t say gay” bill, actually a commonsense law that prevents teachers from teaching sexuality to kindergartners and first, second and third graders. Even liberal Bill Maher recently said, “Maybe kids that young shouldn’t be thinking about sex at all.” Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell got slammed for something, most likely for being a Senate Republican leader.
Hosts and presenters were known for their traditional racial diversity, equity, inclusion, and equity. They also showed special empathy for gay people, as well as the deaf community, during Oscar night. However, this sensitivity is only for liberal gays, members of deaf communities, and liberal racial or ethnic minorities.
What does it feel like to be young and religiously-motivated, pro-life actress or behind-the camera Hollywood worker? Hollywood loves to embrace the weak, the marginalized and the helpless. However, this empathy doesn’t apply to political conservatives. They must conceal their views in order not to lose their careers.
Rapper Snoop Dogg, with 20 million Twitter followers, has referred to black conservatives, including commentator and author Candace Owens, as a “Coon Bunch.” The aforementioned Smith denounced me in a 2005 rap song called “Mr. Niceguy”:
“Why, if I were gay on Friday night I’d…
“Larry Elder — Uncle Tom?
“You’re lucky I ain’t make you the whole damn rhyme.”
Sorry, I don’t consider myself a victim of a systemically racist country. I don’t believe cops engage in institutional racial profiling. Criticism of critical race theories and alarmism about climate change are things I do not accept. My opinion is that taxes and regulations are too strict, government too large, and taxes too high. Secure borders are my priority. I am also pro-life and God-fearing, as well as advocating school choice. Republicans, like Democrats with Janice Rogers Brown (conservative black female U.S. Court of Appeals) Circuit nominee Janice Rogers Brown can challenge the judicial philosophy of Ketanji Brown Jackson, a black female Supreme Court nominee.
Conservatives, according to Smith and other Hollywood stars, are considered a human illness that is not worth debate.
It’s okay. I’ve put up with intolerant nitwits all my life. Jim Crow-surviving Republican Marine dad and strong native Alabama mom instilled in my confidence in myself to be who I am. But how many black kids, right now, endure schoolyard taunts, even bullying — encouraged by influencers like Snoop Dogg and Will Smith — for the sins of “acting white” by studying hard, speaking standard English or being ambitious and career-oriented?
Hollywood where is Hollywood the love of those who are outcasts
