Hollywood honors Hollywood while disgracing America. It's time to act.

As I’m writ­ing this, many mil­lions of peo­ple around the world are watch­ing the Acad­emy Awards. I know I’m not alone in “boy­cotting” the Oscars, though call­ing it a boy­cott is silly. It’s sim­ply a choice. To say it’s a boy­cott is to belit­tle the efforts made by those who actu­ally oppose the actions of orga­ni­za­tions in sus­tained and sys­tem­atic fash­ions. Like many Amer­i­cans, I’m just decid­ing to do some­thing else with my time.

I’ve ranted in the past about avoid­ing Hol­ly­wood. I didn’t watch the Golden Globes and I’ve called for con­ser­v­a­tives to find enter­tain­ment alter­na­tives, but this is a lit­tle dif­fer­ent. The Oscars are the big show. It’s the one that is viewed around the world more than any other enter­tain­ment awards event. This year, peo­ple in other coun­tries will watch the awards and will be able to come to only one con­clu­sion: Amer­ica hates its Pres­i­dent and is falling apart as a result.

They don’t know the sit­u­a­tion. Because they’re not bom­barded with Amer­i­can news the way we are, their lim­ited expo­sure means they have to form their con­clu­sions from an incom­plete data set. Watch­ing the Oscars, they won’t real­ize that a large por­tion of Amer­i­cans sup­port Pres­i­dent Trump. They’ll watch Hol­ly­wood lib­eral after Hol­ly­wood lib­eral bash Trump. They won’t hear a sin­gle one say any­thing pos­i­tive about the Pres­i­dent and if by some mir­a­cle they do (I don’t think Clint East­wood or James Woods are win­ning any­thing this year), they’d hear the crowd throw out loud boos. This is Hol­ly­wood hon­or­ing Hol­ly­wood and dis­grac­ing the nation that gave them their opportunities.

I men­tioned that what many of us are doing dur­ing the Oscars should not be called a boy­cott. If the rat­ings of this Acad­emy Awards are low (which I doubt), it won’t faze any of them. The only way that they can be made to care about the absur­dity of their lib­eral mes­sage is for their actual dol­lars to drop. That means it’s up to con­ser­v­a­tives to stop watch­ing. Sounds hard. It will be. Heck, I’m a movie fan. I moved out to the LA area because I wanted to get into the movie busi­ness a decade ago. Things change and I’m glad I didn’t fol­low through with that par­tic­u­lar goal, but one thing is now clear to me. I can­not allow my hard-​earned dol­lars to be used to pro­mote the left­ist agenda that spews forth from the peo­ple that Hol­ly­wood supports.

That’s not to say I won’t see any movies at all. I’m just going to be very selec­tive. I’m going to sup­port the sto­ries that have con­ser­v­a­tive lean­ings. I’ll sup­port direc­tors and actors, few as they may be, who are unabashedly con­ser­v­a­tive. I’ll read more books, watch less tele­vi­sion, and spend my down­time edu­cat­ing myself on YouTube with con­ser­v­a­tive and/​or Chris­t­ian messages.

In other words, I’m done with lib­eral Hollywood.

Left­ists in Tin­sel­town will con­tinue to embar­rass our nation until we let them know that enough is enough. That doesn’t mean a Tweet or a blog post. The only way they’ll lis­ten is if we hit them in their pay­checks. The only way we can hit them in their pay­checks is to stop spend­ing por­tions of our pay­checks to sup­port them.

As I’m writing this, many millions of people around the world are watching the Academy Awards. I know I’m not alone in “boycotting” the Oscars, though calling it a boycott is silly. It’s simply a choice. To say it’s a boycott is to belittle the efforts made by those who actually oppose the actions of organizations in sustained and systematic fashions. Like many Americans, I’m just deciding to do something else with my time.

I’ve ranted in the past about avoiding Hollywood. I didn’t watch the Golden Globes and I’ve called for conservatives to find entertainment alternatives, but this is a little different. The Oscars are the big show. It’s the one that is viewed around the world more than any other entertainment awards event. This year, people in other countries will watch the awards and will be able to come to only one conclusion: America hates its President and is falling apart as a result.

They don’t know the situation. Because they’re not bombarded with American news the way we are, their limited exposure means they have to form their conclusions from an incomplete data set. Watching the Oscars, they won’t realize that a large portion of Americans support President Trump. They’ll watch Hollywood liberal after Hollywood liberal bash Trump. They won’t hear a single one say anything positive about the President and if by some miracle they do (I don’t think Clint Eastwood or James Woods are winning anything this year), they’d hear the crowd throw out loud boos. This is Hollywood honoring Hollywood and disgracing the nation that gave them their opportunities.

I mentioned that what many of us are doing during the Oscars should not be called a boycott. If the ratings of this Academy Awards are low (which I doubt), it won’t faze any of them. The only way that they can be made to care about the absurdity of their liberal message is for their actual dollars to drop. That means it’s up to conservatives to stop watching. Sounds hard. It will be. Heck, I’m a movie fan. I moved out to the LA area because I wanted to get into the movie business a decade ago. Things change and I’m glad I didn’t follow through with that particular goal, but one thing is now clear to me. I cannot allow my hard-earned dollars to be used to promote the leftist agenda that spews forth from the people that Hollywood supports.

That’s not to say I won’t see any movies at all. I’m just going to be very selective. I’m going to support the stories that have conservative leanings. I’ll support directors and actors, few as they may be, who are unabashedly conservative. I’ll read more books, watch less television, and spend my downtime educating myself on YouTube with conservative and/or Christian messages.

In other words, I’m done with liberal Hollywood.

Leftists in Tinseltown will continue to embarrass our nation until we let them know that enough is enough. That doesn’t mean a Tweet or a blog post. The only way they’ll listen is if we hit them in their paychecks. The only way we can hit them in their paychecks is to stop spending portions of our paychecks to support them.
