The seven+ minutes of Ricky Gervais’ opening monologue at the Golden Globes continue to reverberate far beyond the catered walls of the Hollywood elite. And while the vast majority of the responses from “the little people” has been overwhelmingly positive, the media masters have predictably been less than favorable at having their deeply-imbedded hypocrisy so visibly skewered for all the world to see.
Complain as they might, though, it appears a defining moment might very well be underway right now – a change in the laughably self-important winds that have always blown across the intellectually barren wasteland that is the “woke” culture.
Finally, Hollywood has received the thrashing it so richly deserves. The self-satisfied movie elites have been called out — to use their own PC parlance — over their hypocritical moral preening and hollow woke posturing. Courtesy of Britain’s very own Ricky Gervais, Hollywood’s right-on bubble has been burst, and what a brilliant sight it was.
…He mocked the Hollywood tendency to cover up for and hang out with some pretty nasty people. Mentioning the film Bird Box, he said it was about people who claim they cannot see things — ‘sort of like working for Harvey Weinstein’. When his quip about Jeffrey Epstein having not really committed suicide elicited a few jeers, he said: ‘Shut up. I know he’s your friend, but I don’t care.’
He mocked them all for claiming to be woke and yet happily working with new streaming services owned by morally questionable corporations like Disney and Apple, with its ‘sweatshops in China’. ‘If Isis started a streaming service, you’d call your agent’, he said.
Then came the crescendo, the detonation of the whole woke agenda. All this hypocrisy makes you the worst people in the world to lecture the rest of us about morality or pretty much anything, Gervais suggested. He socked it to them:
‘If you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. If you win, thank your agent, thank your god, and f^ck off.’
So many people must have cheered that. People who are sick of being lectured about their carbon footprint by alarmingly rich celebs who fly about in private jets.
People who’ve had enough of being instructed on the importance of feminism by an industry saturated with sexual madness.
People who don’t take kindly to being told to use PC language and the correct pronouns by people who make movies containing graphic violence and ceaseless expletives (which is fine, by the way).
People who are just tired of the idea that we must bow and scrape to right-on celebs and other do-gooders who always assume they know better than us.
Gervais spoke for us all. Let’s hope this is a turning point in woke nonsense. Let’s hope people who are famous will now think twice before using their platform to pontificate to the masses about things they have no right whatsoever to pontificate on.
Mr. Diaz was tired of all the lies, the distractions, and the selfishness.
Today would be different.
He would take his gun to work and do what he knew should have been done a long time ago.
This would be a lesson none of them would ever forget…
