Truth be told, I’m not at all surprised that the audience didn’t applaud or cheer for an actor thanking America in his Oscar speech, but I am surprised that even ONE of them did as much.
Recently, the 90th Academy Awards took center stage for… some people, as its ratings hit an all-time low. As expected, it was full of dumb political banter that only served to make the Hollywood elites and MSM happy while the rest of the people who dared themselves to sit through it simply groaned at the largest gathering of morons during the week.
The event was chock-full of conservative-bashing jokes, highly hypocritical “#MeToo” references, gun-control advocacy and a disgusting call for “unity” with “Dreamers” by a couple of award-winners. Now, I’m getting all of this from other conservative news sites; I didn’t watch the Oscars. That’s not to say I boycotted them… boycotting would mean that I ever gave even half a rat’s behind about the event and the people in it and had to struggle to keep myself from watching. People boycott the NFL because they actually care about football. People don’t boycott the Oscars because far fewer people could bring themselves to actually care about it.
But despite the expectedly high levels of celebrated insanity, one award-winner actually said something that I appreciate in his speech. That award-winner is none other than Gary Oldman, winning the Oscar for Best Actor for his portrayal of Sir Winston Churchill in the movie “Darkest Hour”.
Oldman began his acceptance speech: “My deepest thanks to the Academy and its members for this glorious prize. I owe this and so much more to so many. I’ve lived in America for the longest time and I’m deeply grateful to her for the loves and the friendships I have made and the many wonderful gifts it has given me: my home, my livelihood, my family, and now Oscar.”
As expected, the audience didn’t give two hoots about Gary Oldman’s appreciation for America, simply sitting in silence and, frankly, boredom.
He continued, saying: “The movies, such is their power, captivated a young man from south London, and gave him a dream…” before thanking family members and friends, prompting the audience to applaud.
He concluded his speech by saying: “I would just like to salute Sir Winston Churchill, who has been marvelous company on what can be described as an incredible journey, and my wife, Gisele, for traveling that road with me and being at my side… I would like to thank my mother who is older than the Oscar. She is 99 years young next birthday (triggering applause) and she’s watching the ceremony from the comfort of her sofa. I say to my mother, thank you for your love and support. Put the kettle on, I’m bringing Oscar home.”
Now, when it comes to thanking family, friends and the people working with you, it only makes sense for the audience to applaud that. It’s something just about everyone does and it’s an act worthy of applause. But the lack of applause when Oldman thanked this country for the gifts she has bestowed upon him highlights how much of the audience (not necessarily all of it) feels about America. Putting aside every other braindead joke that only people with equally low IQs would laugh at, that deafening silence describes just what they think about America: it deserves no such praise.
It deserves no such praise because of the very individual it elected into office. It deserves no such praise because of the constitutional rights it gives to every citizen in the U.S., particularly the 2nd Amendment. It deserves no such praise because of the “racial inequality” that exists in this country. It deserves no such praise because of the very perverts and sexual predators they heralded as gods until last year.
To them, America should not be celebrated or praised in any way unless it’s fundamentally changed to fit their desired mold. They want to be the only ones with a voice; the only ones with the weapons. Such is the state of their super egos. Everyone believes in something, whether it’s God, Allah, Buddha, or themselves. In this case, these Hollywood elites believe in themselves and themselves only. And not in the “just believe in yourself and you can do it!” type of belief. More in the “I’M A GOD! WORSHIP ME, FILTHY PEASANTS! WATCH MY MOVIES AND WORSHIP THE VERY GROUND I WALK ON!” type of belief.
Because that’s precisely the kind of belief it takes to advocate for gun control and confiscation in their position. They won’t be the ones to suffer from it. They have the money to hire armed guards. They don’t hate guns. They hate the idea of ANYONE ELSE having guns.
Much in the same way they “support” illegal immigrants. They declare they stand with them. And stand they do… at least 500 yards away from them… behind armed security… within their homes… which are surrounded by 10ft. walls.
The America they want to live in is the America where only THEY get to enjoy the fruits of capitalism while bad-mouthing it. They want to live in a socialist country while they live like capitalists. I believe I’ve said this before, but I’ll repeat it here: it’s the reason I don’t believe Bernie Sanders is a true socialist. A true socialist would be willing to LIVE like a socialist: dirt poor, down-trodden, bitter and angry at his lot in life, believing he should be given free stuff by the government. Bernie is bitter, sure. He’s angry, no doubt. He believes the government should give free stuff to people, utterly ignoring the economic aspects of such an act. But he doesn’t live dirt poor (he has a net worth just below $1 million, according to the Motley Fool). He doesn’t live down-trodden (he owns three different homes).
He speaks like a socialist while living like a capitalist. Much of Hollywood is the exact same way. Hypocrites, all of them, with a God-complex that makes them believe everyone should live exactly the way they say people should.
Putting the brakes on the Hollywood-bashing train, I would like to commend Gary Oldman for doing something no other Hollywood actor is ever expected to do: thanking America. And I’m not the only one thanking him for that. A myriad of other people on Twitter appreciated his gratitude for America, even if the Mainstream Media chooses to utterly ignore it.
“Finally! Thank God for Gary Oldman who’s thankful for the gifts America gave him,” commented one user.
“Finally someone on the Oscars thanks America for all it has done for them instead of slamming our country! Thank you Gary Oldman! Job well done!” remarked another.
“Gary Oldman finally won his Oscar and was the first person I’ve seen actually thank AMERICA!!!!!! Wooo you go man”
And finally: “Wow. Gary Oldman! Good for you for saying America gave you support for your dreams.”
The reason I mention that last tweet is due to the last part of it. America supported Oldman’s dreams of becoming an actor. If you ask me, THAT is a dreamer. Not the degenerates who have no respect for our rule of law.
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
