Last night was the Academy Awards ceremony. You probably didn’t watch it.
The once beloved show has become ground zero for the very worst liberal rants. Rich, entitled celebrities insult millions of Americans for voting for Donald Trump. This year was no different.
Racist director Spike Lee used his moment to insult the President of the United States. Trump took to Twitter to teach Lee a lesson.
Spike Lee is perhaps one of the biggest hypocrites in Hollywood. Sure, most of the rich elite that live in the lap of luxury are. But the acclaimed black filmmaker might be the worst. After enjoying incredible success as an award-winning director and writer, Lee still insists America is biased against African Americans.
His films, especially his most recent BlackKkKlansman, seek to restoke the fires of our racial divides. Instead of trying to bring white and black people together, Lee tries to tear us apart. No wonder so many black Americans still carry a grudge.
Spike Lee had a bad night, last night. Even though he won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay (an achievement few can claim), he stormed out of the ceremony because his racist film did not win Best Picture.
That’s only the start of his problems. When accepting his award, was he gracious? Was he appreciative to his family, friends, colleagues, and fans? Nope! He used the opportunity to slam Donald Trump and urge Americans to vote against him in 2020.
Lee, after winning Best-Adapted Screenplay for “BlacKkKlansman,” on Sunday night urged viewers to make the “moral choice” in the 2020 presidential race, as Trump seeks re-election.
“When we regain our humanity it will be a powerful moment,” the “Do The Right Thing” director read from his notes.
“The 2020 election is around the corner – let’s all mobilize and be on the right side of history. Make the moral choice between love versus hate,” Lee said. [Source: Fox News]
Love versus hate? This man just made a movie portraying white people as members of the KKK. He deliberately tries to brainwash black people into believing all white Americans are racist hatemongers who want to kill them.
Then he has the audacity to accuse Donald Trump of spreading hate?
The President of the United States would have none of it. He took to Twitter to remind the hypocritical director that his administration has done more for black people than most others.
“Be nice if Spike Lee could read his notes, or better yet not have to use notes at all, when doing his racist hit on your President, who has done more for African Americans (Criminal Justice Reform, Lowest Unemployment numbers in History, Tax Cuts,etc.) than almost any other Pres!” Trump tweeted.
Considering Trump’s massive following on Twitter, my guess is more people read his response than actually watched the Oscars!
This is the great lie the left has been pushing: that Trump and Republicans are racists who hate black people. Nothing can be further from the truth. Long before Trump was elected president, he was giving back to the black community. He was celebrated by the likes of Rosa Parks and Jessie Jackson for his efforts.
Already in his first two years in office, Trump has helped black Americans like few presidents have. His historic tax cuts have meant more jobs for black Americans and more money in their checks. Trump’s massive reduction in government regulation has produced new opportunities for all working Americans. That has resulted in an incredibly low unemployment rate—among black people.
Perhaps one of the most significant acts was his passage of criminal justice reform, which will help incarcerated Americans return to normal life faster. Prison reform has been something Democrats have held over black people’s heads for years. They’ve promised to fix the broken system (which has unjustly targeted young black men), but they never intended to do it.
It was President Trump—not Obama or a Democrat—who made that happen. Why isn’t he on the cover of every black magazine, hailed as a hero?
People like Lee only seek to further divide black and white Americans. Trump is trying to bring us together. He wants all Americans to prosper.
Maybe Lee needs to relearn what “love versus hate” really means.
