The latest example of liberal Hollywood spin will turn American history on its head by radically reimagining the southern states as victors of the Civil War (1861-1865), with slavery continuing to flourish into the present-day. David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, creators of HBO’s award-winning adventure series Game of Thrones (2011-), have just been given the green light to produce a controversial new series titled Confederate.
The show’s historically distorted storyline will follow “a broad swath of characters on both sides of the Mason-Dixon Demilitarized Zone—freedom fighters, slave hunters, politicians, abolitionists, journalists, the executives of a slave-holding conglomerate and the families of people in their thrall.”
Frankly, I’m not surprised that one of the network’s next big pet projects will be to completely rewrite the most divisive chapter in American history. And for what? To promote more divisiveness? If the industry’s declining reputation for actually entertaining audiences is any indication, then you can count on Confederate to stoke the flames of racial division. Malcom Spellman (Empire), who is on-board as both executive producer and writer, explained it best during an interview:

The 2016 election was about the direction of America. The battle was a spectacular culture clash dominated by two groups. On one side were the Intolerables, made up largely by the Left’s complex of academia, news media, and entertainment bent on propagandizing intolerance and division. On the other side stood the “Deplorables,” as Hillary Clinton unaffectionately called them, millions of hard working Americans who supported Donald Trump.
The Deplorables fought hard and won. And the Intolerables spontaneously combusted!
There are now so many embarrassing images of mindless emotionalism, dysfunction, and lack of self-control littering the American landscape, it’s become the new norm. Nevertheless, we must remember 2016 as the year that exposed the deranged Intolerables for who they really are. Let’s take a closer look:
1. Half-Witted Campus Radicals: Ever since institutions of higher learning have morphed into shameful grievance industries where identity politics, victimhood, and political correctness have flourished, so have we seen more division, anger, and hatred across America. Unfortunately, many students wear their victimhood as an uncommon badge of honor. They see themselves as innocent and everyone else is out to get them.
Now, with Trump having won the presidency, their hysterics have reached a whole new psychosomatic level.
Students across the nation have expressed feeling threatened and unsafe with a President-elect Trump. To help them cope, staff have organized everything from “cry-ins” and counseling to hot cocoa and puppy petting. Some students have even worn safety pins to signal that they’ve physically offered themselves as a “safe space” for others.

Like clockwork, celebrities are once again threatening to leave America. This time, it’s if Donald Trump wins the Presidency. I say, good riddance. Don’t let the big door of freedom and prosperity hit you in the butt on the way out.
Nevertheless, let’s amuse ourselves for a moment with a quick peek at some of their crazy proclamations:
1) Samuel L. Jackson: On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jackson warned, “If that motherf—ker becomes president, I’m moving my black ass to South Africa.” Shamefully, this is the same racially militant man who also admitted that he “really wanted” the San Bernardino terrorists to be white.
2) George Lopez: “There’s enough racists in this country for him to get elected,” Lopez propagandized to TMZ. “If he wins, he won’t have to worry about immigration. We’ll all go back.” Luckily, we’ve all caught on to this overused Alinsky-style tactic of calling people “racists,” a tactic used by real racists to deflect attention and control desired outcomes. Perhaps Lopez should instead chastise all those individuals, like Samuel L. Jackson, who admitted to voting for President Obama because of the color of his skin.
3) Cher: Naturally, using complete capitalization, Cher Tweeted, “If he were to be elected, I’m moving to Jupiter.” Personally, I wouldn’t be surprised if after she gets there she stars in her own reality show—a remake of Schoolhouse Rock’s “Interplanet Janet.”

Have you heard the news? All 20 Oscar nominees in the acting categories are white! There’s even a Twitter hashtag called #OscarsSoWhite. Now Spike Lee, Jada Pinkett Smith, Viola Davis, Michael Moore, and other race conscious glitterati have announced that they will not be attending Hollywood’s most prestigious ceremony on February 28.
What message does this send to the nominees whose exceptional work is supposed to be celebrated by all? Is everyone else at the awards ceremony now expected to take their cue from race-baiting crybabies and forego congratulating this year’s winners?
To make matters worse, the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences Cheryl Boone Isaacs, who is black, had the audacity to say that she was “heartbroken and frustrated” over the lack of diversity among this year’s nominees. For the second year in a row, too many whiteys were voted in by the Academy’s reported 6,261 voting membership, of which the majority is supposedly white, though it’s overall composition remains unclear. Because of this, the Academy members have already been called a bunch of racists. But is this really all there is to the story?
As is the case with all propaganda, especially in Hollywood, you have to read between the lines.
Are this year’s nominees worthy of Oscar nods? Of course they are, as long as you take into account the fact that each year somebody has to win regardless of how good or bad the choices are. But that’s not the question everyone should be asking. The right question is, “Why isn’t anyone crying foul over the lack of quality performances overall, which is the real point?” Nevertheless, race conscious elites can’t help but to just hold up diversity (aka color) as a moral virtue, even though their diversity is based on a superficial attribute that has nothing to do with the value of an individual’s talent.

Progressive race-baiter Samuel L. Jackson is more upset by the race of the San Bernardino shooters than the fact that they killed 14 Americans and injured another 22 in an act of domestic terror.
The Daily News reports:
Outspoken actor Samuel L. Jackson admits he had “really hoped” the shooter in the San Bernardino attack was white because he didn’t want Muslim-Americans to get any more backlash than they already have.
The “Hateful Eight” star told the Hollywood Reporter he empathizes with Muslim-Americans, whom he believes are becoming the “new young black men” in the United States due to the wave of scrutiny they are receiving.
“I can’t even tell you how much I really wanted (the San Bernardino shooting) to just be another, you know, crazy white dude, and not really some Muslims,” he told the magazine. “Because it’s like, ‘Oh, s—. It’s here.’”
In other words, Jackson is basically saying: Yeah, yeah, people died, but come on guys! The real issue here is optics! Stop giving Republicans their talking points!!
What a slap in the face to the survivors of the terror attack, and the family and loved ones of the people who died.
Not to mention, this is more of the same double standard that allows the Hollywood elite to say
