Hollywood Hypocrites II

May I present Miss Ann Coulter:

In case you missed the Oscars last Sunday night, here are the highlights:

-Best song went to a musical tribute to the overseers of human sex slaves, an occupation known as "pimping";
-best picture went to a movie about racism in Los Angeles;
-best supporting actor went to the movie about how oil companies murder people; and
-best supporting actress went to the movie about how pharmaceutical companies murder people.
Curiously missing from Oscar night's festivities was any reference, even in passing, to the 150,000 brave Americans currently risking their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

On behalf of red state America, let me be the first to say: "Screw you, Hollywood."

Nice slapdown on B-rate blowhard George Clooney follows:

George Clooney made the only stand for liberal Hollywood, smugly declaring:
"We are a little bit out of touch in Hollywood every once in a while. I think it's probably a good thing. We're the ones who talked about AIDS' when it was just being whispered, and we talked about civil rights when it wasn't really popular. ... (T)his group of people gave Hattie McDaniel an Oscar in 1939 when blacks were still sitting in the backs of theaters. I'm proud ... to be part of this community, and proud to be out of touch."

The point is: The Hollywood set didn't start wearing AIDS ribbons to the Oscars until 1992:
10 years after The New York Times described AIDS;
seven years after AIDS was the cover story on Life magazine;
seven years after AIDS was in People magazine;
five years after Oprah did a show on AIDS.
Only recently has George Clooney heard about segregation. (He's against it.) But he still can't nail down the details of something that ended nearly half a century ago.
Contrary to Clooney's impassioned speech, no theaters ever forced black people to sit in the back. If you were trying to oppress people, you would make them sit in the front, which are the worst seats in the house...

Oh, Ann!

Great Clooney links:
Liberal quotations aplenty here ; great display of his inability to grasp complex issues here as well. Sample of Clooney at his most childish:

"I believe he thinks this [war against Iraq] is a war that can be won, but there is no such thing anymore."
"We can't beat anyone anymore."

Even more, here .
