Oscars Expose Hollywood Bigotry

This year's Academy Awards revealed even more of Hollywood's P.C. inanity than usual.

John Podhoretz writes in today's New York Post:

"The show's opening film montage featured five political figures talking about the movies. One was Laura Bush. The other four? Jerry Brown, the leftoid Democratic weirdo mayor of Oakland. Willie Brown, San Francisco's Democratic mayor. Lani Guinier, the leftist law professor whom Bill Clinton deemed too radically quota-conscious for his administration. And New York's own Al Sharpton, who intends to be a Democratic candidate for president.

"That's a 4-to-1 Democratic, left-wing tilt. Are people still willing to argue that Hollywood doesn't have a liberal bias?

"Worse still was a pointed salute during that montage to a little-known 1974 documentary called 'Hearts and Minds.' At the Oscar ceremony in 1975, producer Bert Schneider read a telegram of thanks from the North Vietnamese government - the same government whose military had just concluded a 12-year war against the United States that led to the deaths of 58,000 young American men."

And then there was the rich irony that it took Tinseltown's Guilty White Liberals, who delight in telling Americans how to act and think, 74 years to give an award for Best Actress to a nonwhite: the biracial Halle Berry of "Monster's Ball." "Training Day" star Denzel Washington became only the second black ever to win the award for Best Actor.

"If this is a sign that Hollywood is finally ready to give opportunity and judge performance based on skill and not on skin color, then it is a good thing," said Kweisi Mfume, president of National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.

"However, if this proves to be a momentary flash in a long history of neglect, then Hollywood has failed to learn the real meaning of equality."

It's fortunate for Condoleezza Rice, Colin Powell, Rod Paige et al. that the Bush administration has more progressive policies than those Neanderthal leftist bigots in La-La Land.
