In the years following Donald Trump’s 2016 election, the entertainment industry took a dramatic turn. Many believe it was a turn for the worse.
You might have thought that, in response to the dramatic election of a Republican, Hollywood would have tried to win over conservatives with content that appealed to their values. Nope! Instead, Hollywood began ramming “woke” content down our throats.
With each passing year, TV shows, movies, and music became more and more political. It used to be, you’d only hear this stuff during an election year—and only when actors appeared on interviews. But over the last four years, even blockbuster franchises have been polluted by social justice and other toxic ideas.
So, it shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone that Hollywood’s biggest night, the Academy Awards, had pathetically low viewership this year. A shocking 9.85 million watched the show, a drop by about 60% from last year.
Donald Trump did not miss a chance to slam woke La La Land.
“What used to be called The Academy Awards, and now is called the ‘Oscars’—a far less important and elegant name—had the lowest Television Ratings in recorded history, even much lower than last year, which set another record low,” Trump said in a statement, as reported by the Daily Caller. “If they keep with the current ridiculous formula, it will only get worse—if that’s possible.”
“These television people spend all their time thinking about how to promote the Democrat Party, which is destroying our Country, and cancel Conservatives and Republicans. That formula certainly hasn’t worked very well for The Academy!” he added. [Source: Daily Wire]
The 45th president isn’t wrong. While mocking the failed Oscars, Trump did offer some advice to Hollywood.
He warned that things could get worse if they continued on this path. The entertainment industry appears only interested in pushing liberal politics, in a pathetic attempt to prop up the Democratic Party. Trump also called out recent attempts by big studios to “cancel” outspoken conservative stars.
Once upon a time, Hollywood stayed mostly out of politics. Sure, actors liked to talk about their favorite candidate from time to time, but movies and television were something everyone could enjoy. It wasn’t about pushing radical, left-wing views onto the country. It was about having a laugh to forget about the toxic things like Washington, D.C.
But those days are long gone. The Democrats who run Hollywood have not forgiven Americans for election Trump. And they are determined to “punish” us by ramming their woke garbage into every song, movie, and script from now until eternity.
It’s a pretty stupid formula, as Trump said. We don’t have to watch their programming, especially since the political cat is out of the bag. Hollywood suffered tremendously due to closed movie theaters. Yet they want TV and streaming to suffer too, with this unpopular messaging.
Apparently, they don’t realize we can just do something else. Or—gasp—read a book instead!
