Hollywood SCUMBAGS Might CANCEL the Oscars to Protest Trump

By

Hollywood liberals are floundering. They just can’t seem to figure out how to handle President Trump.

They whine and protest, but the more they do, the more isolated they become from mainstream America.

And they refuse to listen to the few celebrities that seem to have their heads on straight.

Now the Hollywood snowflakes are looking for a “nuclear option” in their campaign against Trump.

Hot Air reports:

Finally — a proposal that will unite Americans across the political spectrum. Vox’s Todd VanDerWerff writes today that Hollywood should cancel its upcoming Oscars broadcast if it wants to put teeth into its opposition to Donald Trump and his policies:

President Donald Trump’s new immigration order — the one many have labeled a “Muslim ban” because it temporarily bars entry to the US for natives of seven Muslim-majority countries — stops people associated with various Oscar-nominated films from attending the 2017 Academy Awards. That’s just one reason the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences should cancel its annual ceremony and instead announce the winners via press release.

True, it’s just one reason. The others are that it’s interminable, self-congratulatory, and has less suspense than a Patriots-Browns game in December. That self-congratulatory quality comes out most strongly, in fact, when award winners devote their speeches to detailing just how awful they think Republicans are.

VanDerWerff understands that the broadcasts usually serve as a prime-time protest platform, but he argues that it’s not enough this time. Hollywood needs to put its money where it’s mouth is:

The Oscars have become semi-famous for speeches calling for political action. But speeches ultimately don’t risk all that much, because the people delivering them are speaking to a room full of mostly friendly, well-off liberals. Canceling the ceremony altogether would be a bolder and more appropriate act of protest.
Yes! Yes, it would be. Please don’t throw us in the briar patch of six hours or so of celebrity lectures. That would be entirely awful for Trump, and would cripple his presidency!
