No More Oscars for Me

This cannot really be happening. It’s the night of the Oscars. I have no freaking idea who most of these actors and actresses are. The directors might as well be from Mars. What happened to Princess Grace and Jimmy Stewart and Debbie Reynolds?

Anyway, the show taught us that while you are horrifyingly persecuted, it’s great to be black, great to be gay, great to be transgender, great to be a woman. But it’s best of all to be an FOB. About 90 minutes into the show, out of nowhere, appeared Joe Biden. The crowd went totally berserk with adulation. JUST DROOLING, moist, glassy eyes, weeping, shaking crazy with love of their man, Joe from Delaware.

What did Joe have to say? That we must all take a pledge to intervene in the “epidemic” of campus rape and sex abuse of drunk college girls and boys by powerful men. The audience obviously could not at first tell if it were a set up for a joke. But Biden was not laughing so the audience all took the pledge. They will step out of their Bentleys to help young women fight sex abuse and punish the men who sexually abuse.

“Ich schwöre Dir…”

But just a minute. Isn’t Biden a huge Democrat? Isn’t he a pal of Bill and Hillary? Isn’t Bill the most reckless and prolific sex abuser in state and federal government of all time? Hasn’t his whole life been about using his power and status to take advantage of young women? Hasn’t HRC’s been about intimidating and threatening and blackmailing young women to keep them hushed up about Bill’s attacks — including widely reported rapes? 

Haven’t the whole Democrat party and its lackeys in the MSM united in lockstep to protect the Clintons from the consequences of his crimes? And so, now these people are preaching to us to act better about sex abuse of young girls?

And isn’t Hollywood’s main task to sell young people tickets to movies that involve illicit sex? Aren’t almost all youth comedies about seducing drunken girls? And Hollywood is not supposed to be the moral guardian of the girls and young women of the nation? Isn’t this like sending a Madam to guard a nunnery? Or a fox to guard a chicken coop?

The hypocrisy is perfect.

One more short note… the show ends with someone singing “Fight the Power.” What? The power is not the Koch Brothers. The power is not Murdoch. The POWER is the mainstream media. And they sell sex and violence above all — and preach chastity and gun control.

My brilliant sister put it well: “Your basic human is not such a hot item.”

No more Oscars for me.
