Actors Sport Blue Ribbons at Oscars To Protest Trump’s Stance on Immigration

If it’s an Academy Awards ceremony and there are still Republicans occupying political offices somewhere in America, you can bet that you’re going to see plenty of liberal political posturing from Hollywoods elites. And given that Donald Trump is still our president, in spite of the perfervid activism of actors like Meryl Streep and Lena Dunham — well, you pretty well knew how Sunday night would go down.

That’s only part of the reason why I didn’t bother watching this year’s Oscars; “Son-in-Law,” the magnum opus of legendary comedy auteur Pauly Shore, was on CMT at the same time. From what I hear, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway Steve Harvey‘ed the Best Picture award and Jimmy Kimmel made the notably brave decision of trashing Trump before a live audience that contained virtually no Republicans.

Oh, and there were blue ribbons. Did you notice them?

Here’s Lin-Manuel Miranda and his mother, Best Actress nominee Ruth Negga and Karlie Kloss wearing them:

So, what do these ribbons mean? According to the U.K. Daily Mail, the ribbons signified opposition to Donald Trump’s temporary immigration ban, courtesy of the ACLU’s “Stand with ACLU” campaign. Kloss, it’s worth pointing out, is dating Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner’s brother, so there’s always that angle to report.

The ACLU, as usual, took itself very, very seriously:



Thanks @Lin_Manuel, glad you gladly join the fight. And when our children tell our story, they’ll tell the story of tonight. #Oscarshttps://twitter.com/fckinbee/status/835982215490256896 


Finally. Now we know what people who don’t think much about national security policy think about President Trump’s national security policy. I couldn’t be more relieved.

Ever since red ribbons representing AIDS awareness began appearing on the red carpet decades ago, a ribbon has become the best way to say that you want to take a stand for something without really taking any meaningful action — or knowing anything about it, for that matter.

Don’t believe me? Well, check out this list that shows how ubiquitous these wholly worthless virtue-signaling ribbons have become. For instance, an orange awareness ribbon could mean that you’re taking a stand for people with ADHD, lupus, renal cell carcinoma or Prader-Willi syndrome.

Purple ribbons can also mean you’re taking a stand for people with ADHD, as well as being against elder abuse and/or homophobia. A green ribbon means that you want people to be more aware of issues surrounding literacy, childhood depression, or dwarfism, inter alia. Even a zebra ribbon — which sounds pretty hyper-specific — could mean that you’re taking a stand against endocrine cancer or for “vaccine awareness.”

As for the blue ribbons, it’s worth pointing out that the ACLU didn’t get to the color first. In fact, it’s already reserved for addiction recovery, bullying in the United Kingdom, colon cancer, foster care, the West Nile Virus and Canada’s National Non-Smoking Week.

I, for one, would like to be the first express my outrage at Hollywood’s invidious cultural appropriation when it comes to the plight of former Canadian smokers. #CheckYourPrivilegeEh

Hollywood Privilege: ICONIC Actor Accuses Hollywood of Racist Double Standards

The top 1% of the top 1% of all actors who dream of “making it” are complaining about a lack of casting diversity.

Successful Hollywood actors sometimes struggle for years to make in “the biz.” Thousands try and fail to get more than crumbs every single day. But for a privileged few, the right to b*tch about melanin-bending roles is foremost on their minds.

Black and White

Brian CoxProlific character actor Brian Cox recently spoke out against Hollywood’s one-sided “diversity” initiatives.. These politically correct edicts demand black actors be cast in the roles of traditionally white characters. Cox sees this as blatantly racist. He then opined that in like manner, white actors should be allowed to play more varied roles.

“Anybody can play anything. That’s the great thing about theatre and cinema – we transcend all that petite bourgeoisie and politics.”

Cox was responding to recent backlash against Joseph Fiennes’ role in the TV anthology show Urban Myths. In an episode called “Elizabeth, Michael and Marlon,” Fiennes portrayed black pop star, Michael Jackson.

“It’s kind of racist in reverse to say if you are a white man, you can’t possibly play a black man.”

Fiennes was lambasted by entertainment and social media for his role. The episode was scrapped before it aired due to the controversy. Cox wants to know why.

“Every actor, regardless of race, should be afforded the opportunity to play more varied roles,” Cox argued.  It should not be a privilege afforded only to black and Hispanic actors.  Cox mused that actors “should be criticized based on the quality of their work, not the color of their skin.”

Double Standards?

Ah, yes – MLK’s dream, Hollywood-style. When black actors play traditionally white characters, no one dares complain. They’re black, ergo not racist.

Michael Clarke Duncan didn’t receive grief for portraying “Kingpin” in Daredevil. Neither did Morgan Freeman for playing an Irish man named “Red” in Shawshank Redemption. So why was Fiennes singled-out for criticism?

Hollywood privilege.

“Every actor,” Cox said, should have the “opportunity.”

Does anyone who’s become successful in Hollywood have any recollection of how rare they are? A mere fraction of a percent of the millions who try their hand at acting every single year actually create a successful living. Those who sustain that success are even more rare. Why should anyone care whether these Hollywood elite get to play dress up in a different skin color when millions are starving for a glimpse of the success with which they have been blessed?

And the Oscar Goes To…

Maybe it’s because in the past few years, Hollywood is debating the frustrating lack of minority actors’ recognition in the Biz.  #Oscarssowhite caused many to boycott the awards ceremony in 2015 because too few minorities were nominated and won.

First, you have to be cast in a film that is Oscar worthy in order to have any shot at a nomination. Getting to that level in Hollywood practically requires an act of God.

Hollywood success is based on looks most of all.  You can’t get in the door without them.  I once knew an actress once who was so bad in live theater performance, you could not hear her in the front row. But she made it in television because of looks and a good agent.

There are many different reasons to complain about a lack of diversity in Hollywood. Old white men and minorities generally, are allowed to be fat and successful. On the other hand, white women are not.

Men, generally, are allowed to get old, develop gray hair, have pockmarked faces, and make a good living.  Again, women not so much. And you want meto care about which white actors can play blacks and how many black actors get nominated?

If they want more control over their destiny in Hollywood, start a studio.

We didn't watch, we don't care, and the land of "Make Believe" , did much better,  when they stuck to their Trade, pretending.   They have spent years diluting our Culture, promoting immorality, behaving like animals in a Barn Yard .  They have promoted sin, sex, and violence, capturing their average 14 year old audience, luring them into a truly "Make-Believe" world.   By coloring immorality as entertainment, they have influenced Young people.   They are a disgusting example of how badly people can behave.  They know nothing of people who live in the Real World, who go to 8-5 Jobs, come home tired, have meals to prepare, children to raise, struggle with expenses.   They should stay on their "Fantasy Island" as America has little use for them.

They should rename that dump Hitlerywood! You wonder why that worthless State is having so many financial problems when you have a bunch of scumbags trying to act & Arnold screwing the border jumpers! I'd like to see them drop that State from the 50 & build the WALL around it! 49 States is plenty! If they drug tested Hitlerywood most of those actors would FAIL! BOYCOTT their movies & the S.F. 49ers for having Colinoscopy kneeling! What a bunch of commies!

It wasn't that long ago that "PERFORMERS" were mere "Sword Swallowers" ,"Acrobats". and "Barkers on the Midway" !!!!!!   Now they call themselves "ARTISTES", and are "GROSSLY OVERPAID", have EGOS as big as  SPACE ITSELF, ( and just as EMPTY) they are in actuality, the most BOORISH,  load of  "MENTAL MISFITS"  and "DYSFUNCTIONAL DRUG abusers known to mankind !!!  How are they TOLERATED in a civilized society  ????????? How did they GET TO WHERE THEY ARE ?????  AGENTS.....That's how !!!!!!  TALENT means NOTHING.....only through conniving "Agents" are they worth anything, and only because of ENDLESS AWARD NIGHTS are they ANNUALLY PARADED, before other ARTISTES,PRODUCERS, EXPERTS in MAKE-UP, LIGHTING, PYRO-TECHNICS, STUNTS, DRESSERS, GAFFS, DIRECTORS, INVESTORS and EVERYONE and their BROTHERS who make up the MAKE-BELIEVE Business of MAKE-BELIEVE !!!!!!!  THE HOME OF "Plastic People" who are really made of little more than a  balloon filled with noxious fumes.

It's a pity that PEOPLE (real People) have become so enamored by these "STARS" that they have become completely convinced of their infallible nature,( Thanks of course to the enormous line of BS by their AGENTS ) !!!!

Maybe it's time that NORMAL PEOPLE tell the "ARTISTES" to go out and get a REAL JOB, and SAVE the AWARD NIGHTS for the GUYS And GIRLS in the ARMED FORCES, the POLICE and FIREFIGHTERS, Doctors, Nurses, EMTs and the rest of the Heroic AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO "DESERVE" PRAISE, and a LITTLE STATUE to take home as a BIG THANK YOU !!!!!  Maybe THEN our perspective on life will be corrected and really mean something !!!!

Hard to top your comment Eugene, Job Well Done!!!!

Theatre, movies, and such are meant to be a diversion, a means to escape the humdrum, or even the harsh reality of living and making one for others. It was never intended to be the "meal" but only the desert afterwards.

Lincoln attended Ford's theatre not to be instructed as to what he should do politically, but to relax and enjoy, to be entertained and to feel refreshed after the terrible strain of war in a divided States of America rather than a United one.

It has come to be that I, personally, no longer care to see a movie, or be entertained by those who desire to make America Less again and again. Every actor, every actress, every producer is just another John Wilkes Booth, only this time they are endorsed and proudly promoted as if they are the best that the country can produce, rather than the would be assassins and depraved individuals that they truly are.

The end of the condition is true and certain. President Trump may very well be the final act if he is not successful in restoring America to its roots.

I did not watch the Oscar's nor will I watch the Hollywood garbage.

The ACLU is a communist organization that fights for civil liberties. What good does their dumb fight do if we lose our security and safety? Trump needs to have free reign to make America safe again.

Really do tell. How many illegals or fake refugees are they housing??

Yikes !!! Ocasio-Cortez: We Need A ‘Multigendered, Multigeographic’ United States

The United States of America needs to be “multigendered” and “multigeographic,” according to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who endorsed fellow socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at the “Bernie’s Back Rally” in New York on Saturday.

The freshman lawmaker and “Squad” member officially endorsed Sanders during a rally in Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, New York, on Saturday and called for more diversity in the U.S., arguing that it should not only be “multiracial” and “multigenerational” but “multigeographic” and “multigendered.”

“We need a United States that really, truly, and authentically is operated, owned, and decided by working – and all – people in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez said to applause.

“That is what it – it is multiracial, multigendered, multigenerational, and multigeographic,” she said, failing to elaborate on what that specifically looks like.

“We have to come together, not ignoring our differences but listening to them, prioritizing them, understanding injustice,” she continued.

The socialist lawmaker also implied that rampant racism is still alive and well in the U.S., telling the crowd that it is essential to understand “that we operate in a context where slavery evolved into Jim Crow, evolved into mass incarceration, [and] evolved into the realities we have today.”
