Oh, Frak off Sean/ Updated

Courageous artists? Please.

From Breit Bart :

The Oscars communicate post-modern, post-American liberal values more effectively than elected Democratic officials themselves. The liberal establishment understands this and uses the glamorous Hollywood elite and its incessant stream of left-leaning product and promotional vehicles as its proxy messenger.

This year´s cause celebre was not the ailing American work force or the heroic and underappreciated U.S. military, but an attack on California´s just passed traditional marriage amendment - as represented by the white ribbon worn by pliant celebrity throngs. Dissenters in the midst dare not wear their contrarian ribbons for fear of more punitive Proposition 8 backlash.

This year Gus Van Sant and his gay marriage public service announcement "Milk," garnered eight nominations while Clint Eastwood and his objectively conservative box office titan "Gran Torino" got completely shut out.


The movie stars and the powerful creative minds congratulating each other Sunday night wield a greater role in shaping the political landscape than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid combined. Maxine Waters, Barney Frank, Christopher Dodd and William Jefferson possess less power to sway the minds of the electorate than Brad Pitt, Josh Brolin, Sean Penn, Kate Winslet and even the late Mr. Ledger (James Dean continues to sway the public imagination).

Yet the public relations protection received by elected Democratic officials from the Hollywood media collective - who incessantly mock traditional American values and attack by name their Republican counterparts - allows for the corrupt and the contemptible to pull the lever in perpetuity for any cause the Hollywood elite holds dear.

Unchecked, Big Hollywood´s lobbying power only continues to grow. Mr. Obama has David Geffen and Oprah Winfrey to thank for his presidency - ask Hillary.

A few years back, I got into an argument with some moms about what they viewed as my inability to merely enjoy the fodder put out by Hollywood. I read too much into stuff, and I should be able to turn off my concern radar and simply enjoy "mindless" entertainment.

What they dismissed, was that absolutely EVERYTHING you read and watch affects you. The absolute worst thing a person can do is to allow themselves to shut their brains down while they are being "entertained."

Hollywood has an agenda, and even in it's most mindless entertainment offerings, they are still sending out their little messages. And, of course you don't have to agree with everything you watch or enjoy.
