The ignorance of history, the acute lack of irony and the most heinous form of racism have appeared in the last few weeks as celebrities and so-called political leaders have lined up to cheer Ukraine and curse any American who dares to question lies as a traitor. The evils of Putin and the sanctity of Zelensky and Ukraine have been exposed to the American public. Karen Johnson aka Huppy Goldberg and Mitt Romney are two stupid haters running this trash. I can understand Romney’s behavior-he’s always been a soulless ass.
But Hoopy is out of character for this kind of thing. The red-haired right-wing Republicans were supposed to do the job. Democrats are the ones who once cried crocodile cries for red betting that started Hollywood in 1948 and continued until the 1950s. If you are a suspected communist – in today’s parlance it is Putin’s boyfriend – you were deprived of the opportunity to work. Some actors and directors have committed suicide.
In light of the historical Russian hatred that is spreading in America and in the so-called civilized world, I think it is time for the American people to condemn in the strongest possible language the widespread hypocrisy of the holy Cretans who pretend to live their lives. Try to be serious about someone other than yourself and then take a moral political position. Representative examples of this behavior are Anne Hathaway, Oprah Winfrey and Shawn Payne. All three are keen to condemn Russia without knowing a horrible thing about the history of the conflict between Ukraine and Russia. They have jumped on the bandwagon to advocate for Ukraine’s political cause, which enjoys widespread support among neo-Nazis and the extreme right.
It’s especially gratifying to see how much the Hollywood community is now behaving like the red-toned Jospeh McCarthy. There was a time in Hollywood when some brave souls (I think Lucille Ball, Kirk Douglas and Gregory Peck) spoke out against blacklisting actors, writers and directors for their past political relations with the Soviet Union. I have long lived to see the so-called liberals in Hollywood as “agents of Russia” against Donald Trump and his supporters. Many in Hollywood, who have been weeping for crocodile cries for abusing the Hollywood blacklist, are now doing the same heinous thing without a hint of embarrassment. Some brave souls like Oliver Stone are behaving with respect.
If you are a movie lover (and I think of myself as one) you should be familiar with these great movies that remind viewers of the horrors that befell actors, writers and directors during the Hollywood blacklist:
In front– A 1976 comedy-drama film set against the blacklist of Hollywood in the 1950s. It is written by Walter Bernstein, directed by Martin Ritt, and starring Woody Allen and Zero Mostel.
Good night and good luckEdward R., a 2005 historical drama film directed by George Clooney, tells the story of Senator Joseph McCarthy’s fight against the insane red hat.
TrumboThe 2015 American biographical drama film, directed by Jay Roach, follows the life of Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who was blacklisted but continued to write award-winning films under the pseudonym (such as Spartacus).
It was an ugly, horrible and bad time in America. It was a period fed by fear and ignorance. While it is true that there were Americans who identified themselves as communists and embraced the politics of the Soviet Union, we are afraid to believe that communist catastrophe was everywhere and that America was on the brink of a red tide.
Thirty years ago I would reflect on this era and wonder how such mass hysteria could occur. Now I know. We’ve lived with the same kind of insanity since we tagged Donald Trump as a Russian agent in the summer of 2016. And the irony is awesome. The elite in Hollywood, who have raised eyebrows against director Elijah Kazan for naming Hollywood before the House Unamerican Activities Committee, are now leading the charge, accusing anyone who dares to speak out against the failed coup to be identified as the Kremlin’s “stooges.” Petni.
Hillary Clinton’s insanity in accusing US Army Major and Congressman Tulsi Gabbard of being a Kremlin puppet is not a departure from the norm. Clinton exemplifies the terrifying ideals of the country’s political and cultural elite. Accusing political opponents of being controlled by foreign enemies, real or imagined, is an old political tactic. Edward R. I wonder what Maro or Dalton Trumbo would say if we could bring them back from the dead. My hope is that both will speak for Taka and Tulsi, who are carrying on the great tradition of patriots.
