The political opinions expressed by the liberal winners at the Oscars will go over big with those who are still on the liberal plantation but those opinions lack one small thing.
Patricia Arquette ranted about income equality for women falling back on the myth that women are paid less than men for doing the same work. Studies have shown that when all things are equal the pay is about the same. But the myth continues as liberals rebrand the issue one of equality and take up the faux fight to gin up support and voters.
I think everyone should be paid what they agree to with their employer. It is not up to the government to decide what people will be paid. If you are one of the best and brightest then you should be able to negotiate a good salary.
I do think however, that it is hard to take someone screaming about equality seriously when that person is doing so in a $20,000 wardrobe after receiving a $125,000 gift bag for nothing more than attending an award show (maybe the $250 vibrator in the bag can help ease her frustration). Arquette claimed she paid her dog walker more than she made for her work in Boyhood.
If she wants equality perhaps she should walk her own dog like the rest of us…
Then there was the duo of John Legend and rapper Common who accepted an award for the music in Selma. Legend ranted on about civil rights and claimed that the civil rights fight 50 years ago included voting rights and now voting rights are again under attack.
“We know that the voting rights that they fought for 50 years ago is being compromised in this country today,” adding, “We live in the most incarcerated country in the world. There are more black men under correctional control today than there were under slavery in 1850.” IJ Review
What planet is this moron from? Voting rights are not under attack. There is a movement to require an ID to vote and that is how it should be. You need an ID to do almost anything in society from boarding an airplane to buying tobacco or alcohol to registering your kids for little league. You even need an ID to enter government buildings and unions who oppose voter ID laws require an ID before anyone can vote in union elections.
Why is it so tough to present an ID when voting and how can that possibly equate to an attack on voting rights? The argument that people who are poor can’t get an ID is a false one. The very people who allegedly can’t get an ID seem to be able to produce one to get welfare benefits.
Voting rights are not under attack or being compromised. What is happening is people are being held accountable. After elections where more people voted than were registered in some places and where people bragged about voting more than once is it too much to ask that people show an ID?
As for the number of incarcerated black men and the claim there are more in jail than were held in slavery that might very well be correct. That does not mean that they are in jail under false pretenses though. If these guys are concerned about the number of black men in jail perhaps they should work to help communities realize that they should raise their children not to be criminals. Here is an idea, start following conservative principles and leave liberalism behind. Liberal policies have led to the breakdown of the black family and the result has been decades of men raised into crime and sent to prison. One only needs to look at the areas of the country with high crime and large numbers of blacks in trouble to notice all these areas are run by liberals.
I would also point out there are more blacks in slavery now then there were during slavery only now they are slaves to the Democrat plantation where they are held in bondage by economics rather then chains. If they step out of line they are beaten by their masters in the Democrat party until they fall back in line.
The people who stand up in these award ceremonies and spout nonsense show how stupid they really are. These are the kind of people who give us poor leaders because they vote.
Let’s face it; if voting rights were actually being compromised we would not have Obama and many others in office…
Never surrender, never submit.
