Oscars, Emmys, Tonys, ESPYs, Grammys, it makes no
difference… it appears that every award show from now until the sun expires
will be nothing but a vehicle to bash President Donald Trump and conservative
Republicans. In days of yore, the award-winning performers would usually step
up to the microphone, gratitude on their faces, and say something like, “I’d
like to thank the Academy,” etc., before making a few other brief remarks and
returning to their seats. Today's performers come up to the microphone,
countenance’s dripping in vitriolic superiority, and say something like, “In
light of these dark times, I accept this award in honor of all those oppressed
and marginalized by despots like President Trump, who isn’t fit to share the
label of ‘human being,’ blah, blah, blah, and so- in closing- I ask you all to
join with me in resisting Hitleresque thugs like Trump and his fellow
Neanderthals in the Republican Party. Do it for the Dreamers. Do it for the
new award will be given out based solely on the performer’s attack on
Trump/Republicans. How heartfelt was it? How long? How did it rate on the
viciousness scale? How creative was it? Did it inspire others to anger and
violence? Actors and actresses, college professors, late night and morning
television hosts, mainstream media morons, and Silicon Valley corporate bigwigs
will all clamor to get their hands on a coveted “Trumpy,” to graphically prove
to the world how much more compassionate they are than the unaccredited, Trumpy-less
deplorables in fly-over country.
genre and mode of communication has now been given over to bashing Trump and/or
Republicans. Nearly every television show. Almost every movie. Newspapers and
magazines, music and theatre, they all spew the same message. This group-think
has spilled over into classrooms, cartoons, comics, sports pages and
obituaries. Crossword puzzles and recipes are next, I assume. The purportedly
open-minded will take every opportunity for self-aggrandizement, but will brook
no dissent. This is not what courage looks like. In fact, it bears a strong
resemblance to cowardice. “Resistance” sounds nice, but who among them would
have the self-confidence and integrity to resist the resistance?
self-styled creative crowd thinks they are pioneers and pushing the envelope
when they make dads, businessmen, and straight white males look like buffoons
or monsters. They think they are in the vanguard of “the Resistance” when they
incessantly mock Christianity and Christians, and portray residents of rural,
heartland areas as intolerant, racist, inbred, ignoramuses clinging to their
God and their guns. They might try to deny this in public, but I’ve been in
private with enough of them to know this is literally an accurate depiction of
what many of these “progressives” believe.

*CNN, Various- Every CNN program, every hour, every day:
This network is the gold-standard for demonstrating how there is no such thing
as “fake news.” It is obvious, avers the network, that fake news does not
exist, and is simply a construct of fevered, right-wing imaginations. It makes
clear that the whole discredited concept of fake news, is, in fact, obviously
