"Where Are the Jews?" Ask Academy Museum Donors
|Salvador Dalí, Col. Jack L. Warner, 1951. Syracuse University Art Museum|
As a measure of how seriously, museum president Bill Kramer says an installation on the film industry's founders and the studio system will go on view in about a year. Originally planned to be temporary, it will be the first and only permanent exhibition. (For now?)
The Motion Picture Academy is, if nothing else, cringily over-reactive. #OscarsSoWhite has led the museum to tout the contemporary film industry as a kaleidoscope of diversity (it's not), while presenting the past as problematic. That has left one of the biggest stories of a minority overcoming the odds on the cutting room floor.
Mao Tse-tung was on that kick back in the 1960s. We all know how that turned out for China.
Oh wait, he already has... Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, a movie which hearkens back to a time when it was ok to think that white, heterosexual men were the true heroes in the world.
Who would ever mistake that for ideology? Just a feel-good film for white men clinging to the macho myth of their inherent supremacy, guns and all.
Just art for art's sake. As if anyone, but a bunch of intellectual incels, would ever consider Tarantino an authority on culture and ideology.
On that note, if anyone is interested in tracing the intersection between the Save-LACMA mob, right-wing militia groups, and Trump, let me suggest you review the other titles at the youtube channel linked above. In addition to the Tarantino clip, you will find the following titles: "Joe Biden's Brain Malfunctions", "Alex Jones Breaks Down Woke Hollywood Roots", and "People chanting 'We Love Trump'".
Yup, nothing remotely ideological to see there...
Michael, don't you have better things to do?
Seek counseling. Please. For your own sake.
If yes, it's hard to follow your viewpoints.
Perhaps adopting pseudonyms will be helpful for readers.
How about Wilma Mankiller? Or Silence Dogood?
You're giving us the vapors.
