Public apologies to the collective have become a rage for the Left these days, and the apologies themselves reveal much about this new social(ist) media fad:
“I am deeply sorry for my inappropriate and insensitive words and ‘likes’ on social media. I take full responsibility for my actions and I sincerely apologize. This has been a pivotal life lesson for me. I’m dedicated to becoming a more informed and educated version of myself.” So said actor Israel Broussard (Net Flix – To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before) in response to the criticism he received for his own social media posts and ‘likes.’
The reason the Left likes apologies like Broussard’s is because the apologies themselves are being made TO the Left. The climate of intolerance surrounding the predominantly Left Hollywood crowd these days is downright ‘Orwellian’ notes Danielle in conversation with Robert about this continuing sinister trend.
The visible gap between the morality and character of the heroes often played by Hollywood actors on TV and in the movies – and their own real values as expressed on social media and in the news – is disappointing to say the least. Worse, while there are still exceptions, most ‘Hollywood’ productions themselves no longer even express positive values.
Holding the ‘Hollywood’ community as a moral compass for a nation is both ironic and tragic. After all, in front of the camera, actors ‘lie’ for a living – acting as someone that they are NOT. The financial rewards they receive for ‘lying’ may also act as a psychological incentive to carry their practice into another public world: politics.
There, instead of ‘lying’ only as actors representing characters of fiction, they can now ‘lie Left’ – working on creating a political fiction – one that is sinister to the core. No matter how many atrocities and horrors created, it is to that political fiction that the ‘politically incorrect’ must always apologize.
Don’t ever expect to hear the Left apologize for ‘anything’ – no matter how offensive or irrational. That’s because sincere apologies are only rarely made by those few who understand when the circumstances are Just Right – and why.
