Will Hollywood Keep Sending Money to the Misogynist Bigots of Brunei?

Beverly Hills Hotel Enlists ‘Master of Disaster’ Mark Fabiani as Consultant – The Hollywood Reporter

The Beverly Hills Hotel is owned by the Brunei Investment Agency, which is controlled by the Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah. On May 1, a new Sharia law penal code in the Southeast Asian nation was instituted that includes a policy that levies harsh penalties — including plans for death by stoning — for gays and adulterers.

The industry response to the newly installed code has been swift. The Motion Picture Television Fund‘s Night Before Oscars Party was pulled from the Beverly Hills Hotel, as well as The Hollywood Reporter’s annual Women In Entertainment breakfast. 

Ellen DeGeneres, Richard Branson, Sharon Osbourne and Jay Leno have been outspoken in promoting the boycott. 

I hope the usual suspects who enforce the more usual forms of political correctness will continue to apply the same standards to one of their favorite watering holes now that it represents the gay-hating, woman-hating standards of Shariah Islam.

Check out my new bestseller, Lightning Fall: A Novel of Disaster. Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit.com says: “Bill Quick has authored a terrific thriller that is also an all too plausible warning. Highly recommended!” Available in Kindle e-book or trade paperback formats.

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.
