Awards season used to be something that Americans looked forward to, and celebrating the year’s cultural achievements was fun at one point. Today, however, it’s a different story.
Led by the liberal need to divide and conquer the nation’s young voters, the left has spent the last few years polarizing America. It’s not enough to simply want to elect a democrat…instead, you must hate and resist your opponent as well, even if they best you in the general election. Now, as Donald Trump works to improve our nation from behind the desk in the Oval Office, there is an enormous swath of Americans who are openly hoping that he fails, refusing to learn the lessons of our history.
This dichotomy of ideas that the left clings to has permeated all facets of our modern culture as well, with television networks, celebrities, musicians, and Hollywood all being forced to take a side. You’re either with the democrats or you’re against them, and flipping the wrong side of that coin could have you blackballed for life in your chosen profession.
It’s 4th grade recess tactics at their most pedantic, but it’s all that the liberals have left to do.
That sort of “us versus them” attitude is coming to the Grammy Awards as well, with the music industry set to celebrate their year, and predictably bash the President, on Sunday night.
“More eyes likely will be glued to the moments of the show that will address social issues such as gun violence, mental illness and sexual abuse — hotly debated topics that in recent months have jolted the entertainment industry. Producers stressed that they never look to force politics into the show, instead leaving it up to artists to use the platform as they see fit.
“‘We really do believe in artists’ rights,’ Ehrlich said. ‘Everything comes from them. They are more than the sum of their lyrics and music. There’s certainly more of a magnifying glass on our show because of the [Time’s Up show of support at the] Golden Globes.’
“As Corden and Ehrlich discussed a potential segment, the newscast in the producer’s bullpen displayed a press conference of an Arizona woman who was leaving the hospital after recovering from a ‘non-survivable injury’ after being shot in the head at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. The attack that left 58 dead and hundreds more injured will be addressed on Sunday’s show with a tribute performance from Maren Morris, Eric Church and Brooks Osborne; the names of the victims will be displayed on paper lanterns.
“Ehrlich was especially proud of the performance Kesha was prepping. The pop star, who saw her career stalled for years after going public with allegations of abuse against her mentor, superstar producer Dr. Luke, rebounded with last year’s ‘Rainbow’ (up for pop album).”
Much like the NFL, there is a large population of Americans who simply wish that their entertainment could remain separate from their politics. Unfortunately, that’s not the way the cult of celebrity tends to work in America, and the leftist cabal in charge of the mainstream entertainment media isn’t looking for any revolution within their own ranks.
