Oscar Voter Reveals Brutally Honest Ballot

Conversely, with 12 Years a Slave, you don’t even crack a smile, but it was interesting, admirable and well done; I must say, though, that contrary to what some have asserted, it’s not as if it required great courage to make that movie — maybe if you made it in Mississippi in 1930.

Exactly.  It seems like one of these “courageous” black opuses comes down the pike every other year or so – they alternate with the “courageous” Holocaust epics.  None of them require any courage – unless you think it takes a great deal of bravery to make a film that will receive accolades from everybody with any pretensions to progressivism at all.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Oh, right, the Oscars are coming up. A bunch of vile progs trying to reinforce their cultural hegemony with a nationally-televised circle jerk. I’ll be sure to tune in to watch that.

    Or not. Buying and then washing a dog would probably be a better use of my time.
