In an outrageous op-ed by The Hollywood Reporter, writer Alan Jenkins suggested that Hollywood needs to make more anti-Trump movies.
Jankins started his confused ramblings with the following falsehood:
“At important moments in our history, Hollywood has helped Americans understand the meaning and gravity of threats to our democratic principles. Through allegory, symbolism, and often farce, creative works have reminded us of the values to which we aspire and the dangers of abandoning them.”
“We very much need that spirit from Hollywood today. We need new, shared narratives that artfully articulate the elements and dangers of Trumpism. President Trump, aided by people still in power today, repeatedly divided Americans against each other, attacked free speech and the press, cruelly separated families, embraced white supremacy, traded in lies, and made a mockery of our justice system,” argued Jenkins
He clearly forgot that big tech literally just banned President Trump and some of his associates. Free speech app Parlor was also removed from Google Play Store and Apple istore. Does that sound like freedom of speech to millions of conservatives? Absolutely not.
“He and his allies participated in a violent insurrection and attempted to overturn a fair election. And like McCarthyism, the worst elements of Trumpism will outlive his departure from office. Unchecked, they will fester and potentially grow.”
For millions of Americans, flooding the streets of DC with 25 thousand troops seems more like a coup attempt than a hand full of unarmed protesters walking through an open door.
“Muslim Americans, Mexican Americans, African Americans, Jewish Americans, and Transgender Americans are just some of the groups vilified and attacked by Trumpism and its devotees,” he said. “At a time when Hollywood is opening its doors a crack to more diverse stories and storytellers, it must also support authentic and entertaining content from these new voices that tells a new American story.”
What on earth is he talking about? He has no idea how Trump’s policies helped these communities. Donald Trump’s share of the minority vote increased in the 2020 election.
Charles Blow of The New York Times tweeted:
“This is so personally devastating to me: the Black male vote for Trump INCREASED from 13% in 2016 to 18% this year. The Black female vote for Trump doubled from 4% in 2016 to 8% this year,” Blow tweeted. “Also, once again, exit polls show a majority of White women voting for Trump.”
“Also, the percentage of LGBT voting for Trump doubled from 2016. DOUBLED!!! This is why LGBT people of color don’t really trust the White gays. Yes, I said what I said. Period,” he continued. “Also, the percentage of Latinos and Asians voting for Trump INCREASED from 2016, according to exit polls. Yet more evidence that we can’t depend on the “browning of America” to dismantle White supremacy and erase anti-Blackness.”
Amusing isn’t it.
