In trying to watch the ether rag known as Academy Awards this year, I kept being reminded of untruths they shout from the mountaintop.
- The Mexican who won the most awards of the night making snarky, thinly-veiled remarks about how America doesn’t allow Mexicans into the country to prosper.
- The numerous references to race not being fully represented in America due to the obvious omission of blacks in the top five Oscar categories (it’s Hollywood who nominates the non-blacks, not America). This always got applause from a woman basking in the Top Twenty Richest Women in America, Oprah Winfrey. (Wonder why the Asians never complain?) (The answer to that question is exceedingly important by the way but the Left does not want to hear it.)
- The feigned indignation about a lack of “diversity” in the country. The word, “diversity” is code talk for “perversity.” There were plenty of perverts in the show, including the effeminate, underwear-only-wearing host yammering scripted-but-still-unfunny jokes the entire night.
But Hollywood Really Hates Handicapped People
It’s my charge here that Hollywood despises the truly handicapped in America far more even than the US Government despises the handicapped.
This year, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the ADA, turns 25 years old. It’s been a walking embarrassment (er, a rolling embarrassment) ever since the Socialist Liberal George Bush, Sr., signed it into law. The bottom-line result is that the handicapped in America are morally and financially worse off than before the law was signed by that Leftist President.
Still, Hollywood likes to go big and they manage to overshadow the government’s wickedness almost hourly.
Five years ago, a big deal was being made about the ADA. I went on John Stossel’s show to tell the truth about it all. I was shocked to get home and watch the episode only to find out that the vast majority of my comments craftily omitted. (The immoral Libertarian (sorry to be redundant) Stossel won’t fool me twice, I can assure you.)
Jayne and I were watching a show called Covert Affairs. (I’d link to it, but that would be doing you, my readers, a disservice.) On the show, the actor Christopher Gorham plays a blind man. The week all of the nation (except me) was celebrating the ADA’s 20-year anniversary, (which should stand for, Americans Disabling Americans), this guy and his buddies in Hollywood had the gall to make the following commercial.
Keep in mind before clicking the video at the bottom:
- He talks about the lack of opportunity for the disabled in America.
- He credits the ADA for giving the disabled “equal opportunity in workplaces across America.” (What he does not state, or know, or care about, is that 10% fewer of the handicapped are working than before the ADA was signed into law by Traitor George Bush, Sr.)
- He says, “But they still face obstacles.”
The Obvious Irony and Hypocrisy
You do get the irony, right? Hollywood hires a man who is not blind to play a blind man! They did not hire an actual blind man.
My question for you: why should anybody get angry if a modern-day Al Jolson popped up in blackface? Shouldn’t Hollywood stress the plight of the black man by hiring lots of whites, in black-face makeup, to portray blacks in movies and television?
That was nothing but an exceedingly-hateful commercial. Blind people everywhere are supposed to be thrilled that Hollywood hired a man who isn’t blind to tell America that it needs to give blind people more opportunities?
Just a “thought question” for my readers: Wonder if a man with actual ALS would have been better for the role of Stephen Hawking than the healthy, non-disabled actor who made his fortune in this role?
