Could anything be more pathetic and self indulgent than Hollywood’s latest production, the “I Will Survive” video?
Supposedly one million have watched it, so I won’t give it any more publicity by linking it here. The dishonor role of participants in this effort sponsored by W Magazine and Conde Nast Entertainment, are “stars” not particularly remarkable. That is, Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Taraji Henson, Felicity Jones, Andrew Garfield, Chris Pine, Hailee Steinfeld, Dev Patel and Matthew McConaughey.
I’m not sure I’d recognize a one of them if they knocked on my door.
Notice the Gloria Gaynor song. The most prominent word is “I.” It’s all about them, not us and not the country. It’s about their feelings. They don’t care a whit about the public. We’re just the bread to soak up their gravy so that they can make more bread for themselves.
It’s just another lecture, following Meryl Streep’s Golden Globes lecture, following the videos aimed at the electoral college and others to subvert the honest vote of the people. All Hollywood does anymore is attack us. They’ve already whacked at our country, our patriotism, Christianity and morals.
Even if we don’t go to their movies, they clutter TV with their awards shows, which are used politically, series that lecture us and the internet with these remarks and youtubes. You can’t go to the grocery store without seeing their faces plastered on magazines.
I don’t care what they think. They haven’t gotten the message – like the politicians who lost their seats in the past elections – that they are no in accord with most of America and that we brush them off like dirt on a shoe.
Frankly I don’t care if they do or don’t survive. They don’t seem to care much either, because most of them do themselves in with drugs, alcohol or suicide.
Maybe it’s all just a career enhancing move. Gets their names in front of the public. Already Hollywood movie audiences are shrinking, unless a film is a fantasy like Star Trek or Star Wars.
Don’t they get the message?
