The OSCARS…..great stuff from Mike Huckabee

by Mike Huckabee

Last night, ABC aired yet another Hollywood awards ceremony in which incredibly wealthy, attractive and privileged celebrities congratulated themselves on being oppressed and misunderstood. They again left the walls of their gated mansions with their armed security guards and traveled past heavily-armed police into the walls of the Kodak Theater, where they hectored us about how terrible guns and security walls are. This year included an extra layer of lectures on open borders and welcoming all migrants to come on in, from people who won’t let you get within 200 yards of them unless your name is on the VIP list.

As expected, aside from a brief, welcome appeal to calm bipartisan outreach from host Jimmy Kimmel…

…the Oscar telecast was filled with liberal virtue-signaling. From all the anti-Trump speeches and wisecracks to the blue ribbons on many gowns and lapels, signaling support for the ACLU for suing over Trump’s immigration order, the message was that Hollywood is bravely standing up to that fascist dictator Donald Trump, who’s stripping away our civil rights by enforcing the immigration law passed by the Democratic Congress in 1965.

Two points: First, if they really believe Trump is an iron-fisted, vindictive dictator who’s taking away their civil rights, why do they feel perfectly secure in constantly mocking and attacking him on national television? Think anyone would dare do that in North Korea or Cuba? How about in Iran, the nation that won Best Foreign Film? The celebrities roared their approval when a statement was read from the Iranian director who boycotted the ceremony, about the injustice of Trump’s temporary immigration ban on Iranians. Do any of those clapping stars realize that Iran is the world’s largest state sponsor of terrorism, and that they were applauding a lecture on human rights from someone who lives in a country whose leaders oppress women, kill gays and want to commit genocide against the Jews?

Second, liberals accuse Trump of being sympathetic to the KKK with no evidence of that ugly charge. Do these celebrities realize that the ACLU has repeatedly defended the Klan and other extremist groups that surely would never merit an Oscar invite? Unlike today’s liberals, the ACLU believes that the First Amendment applies even to those who say the most unpopular and abhorrent things, not just to people you agree with. Free speech wouldn’t be very free if it only applied to government-approved speech. So by their own guilty-by-association standards, the Oscar attendees are more closely tied to the KKK (they openly support the Klan’s attorneys!) than Trump is. Shame on them!

Granted, I didn’t watch the whole show (did anyone?), I just read some of the highlights and lowlights. But then, since the Best Picture winner has made only $22 million in theaters, I think it’s safe to assume a lot of people had very little interest, continuing a trend that’s been going on for years. Last year’s “Best Picture” winner had a total box office gross of only $45 million. Do you even remember what it was? I’ll give you a hint: its title was “Spotlight.” I’ll bet you still don’t remember it, do you?

There was a bit of Divine humor at the very end, though, when the wrong card was put into the Best Picture envelope. The producers of “La La Land” were already making their acceptance speech when it was announced that “Moonlight” had actually won. My first thought was that it was reason #10,943 never to trust Hollywood accountants. My second thought was that after all that posturing on how they knew more than the President about foreign policy, immigration, national defense and every other difficult subject, in the end, they couldn’t even hand out a trophy without screwing it up.

And my final thought was that maybe “La La Land” really did win, but Hollywood didn’t like the results of the fair election, so they just changed the rules after the vote was already in and gave it to the more PC choice.

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

    The only thing I know about Oscars is don’t put your hand in a tank with Oscar fish.

    The LALA LAND people REALLY were amazing with the mistake; here they’d made touching speeches about their families and being thrilled to win…then they didn’t!?
    I’m glad I finally put the Oscars on just at that moment so I could see what really happened.

    Then they say something about “So MOONLIGHT won! The story of little black boys and homosexuality” or something….ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Isn’t THAT uplifting? We’re poisoning ourselves.

  3. Kid says:

    I didn’t know what the movies are about. Yea, that is part of the problem when you pretend the only people that exist are the fringes. Demoralizing. Core strategy of the communists.,

  4. First time I neither disagree with, or could add anything to what Huckabee said.

  5. John M. Berger says:

    Actors of the past: Gable, Stewart, Bronson, McQueen, etc. at least knew something of the REAL WORLD. It seems to me that [most] of today’s crop have no such connection to or even a concept of it. That said, as much as I can’t stand them, personally, they are nevertheless, moreover, good at what they do. If they would just keep their whackadoodle politics to themselves I might even consider going to the movies once-in-awhile (it’s been >25 years). As for watching the DOG AND PONY SHOW of these, phony, egotistical B@$t@RD$, who apparently hold some 1/2 of our population in contempt, collect awards-NEVER!

  6. Mal says:

    Right on, JMB. I couldn’t agree more. The Hollywood I knew growing up were patriots that volunteered to go to war for love of country and honored our constitution. Not today. Can you just imagine how they would act if we suddenly found ourselves at war, like after Pearl Harbor? They would probably blame it on Trump for not understanding how the Japanese felt about us.

  7. bocopro says:

    Wouldn’t be a’tall su-prized to learn that it was all a publicity stunt to reinvigorate viewing, which has been steadily dropping over the past few years in direct ratio to the level of attacks on anything slightly right of center.

    Hey — the only thing Hollywooders consider worse than having people say bad things about ’em is for people to say nothing about ’em, and they dang sure don’t give much reason for us to say good things about ’em these days with their murky unwatchable films by un-American directors derived from unreadable books.

    As for Huckabee, I sometimes get a strong whiff of barnyard aroma from some of his ideas, but I always appreciate his way of spittin ’em out. In this case, he said it much more politely and civilly than I would have and made his points fully and clearly.

  8. Baysider says:

    Good! I’ve been making the point about the ‘walls’ too. Glad you posted, as I hadn’t thought about the ‘mocking’ example. Good one!

  9. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider, it’s Huckabee’s thinking which helps me like Trump again…Huckabee is SO RIGHT and Hollywood is SO STUPID.

    HOWEVER…I heard that many are asking “Who’s this Iranian director to lecture to US!?” Now, that could be only conservative pundits saying that but I heard some at the Oscars weren’t too thrilled. BRAVO!~! The wall point is EXCELLENT.;

    Bocopro…well said, thanks!

    Mal and JMB: Imagine any of our Hollywood types signing up for military duty like SO MANY DID in WWII?? And so many did and came back and didn’t brag about it. Amazing.

    CIA, this is excellent, isn’t it.

    KID…well said. Too true, sadly.

    Mustang was right yesterday “Saul Alinski reaching out from hell.”

    HILARIOUS! The title is “An Iranian Won and Oscar and the Right Wing had a Twitter meltdown!”

    They’re implying the Cons. were upset he WON! …not at what he SAID. This is SO FREAKIN’ typical, isn’t it?

    THIS IS THE KIND OF THING THE RIGHT HAS TO CORRECT SOMEHOW>>>SHOW THE UTTER MISCHARACTERIZATION. bUT THEY WON’T.

  11. FB says:

    Watching the oscars is like watching paint dry. It’s so freakin’ boring to me. Those people think they’re indispensable when they’re actually not. Merryl Streep thinks she’s a goddess but she coud disappear and the world would still go round, and another entertainer would replace her. That’s why, by the way, those people hate the market and capitalism. Everybody is replaceable in a split second.
