Hollywood wants people to see America as a dystopia – or so it seems in one new music video. In a music video released by Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) called This is America, the artist came together with four other rappers to apparently reveal the bleakest aspects of America. Feted by the media as “powerful” and a “masterpiece,” the May 5 video portrays riots, violence, a church choir shooting, drug abuse, suicide, and fear, while Gambino/Glover raps in the background, “This is America.”
Its startling to see who is considered influential in the media and entertainment industry. At the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on May 5, director Ava DuVernay spoke about the importance of activism in art.

Since when did it become art to ruin and destroy the image of Christian religion?
The Hollywood Reporter released information today about the upcoming film Blessed Virgin, a film which centers around … wait for it … a “visionary nun whose illicit relationship with another nun led to her execution.”
For whatever reason, going against the political tide is considered bad.When rapper Kanye West unleashed a twitter storm last week expressing support for Trump and conservatives, the backlash was overwhelming. This weekend, west coast rapper (and Snoop Dogg’s cousin) Daz Dillinger posted a video to Instagram calling for street gang the Crips to “fuck up Kanye.”
Comedienne Michelle Wolf is a hero, according to media and Hollywood figures who are racing to defend her recent outrageous statements, regardless of how the rest of America reacts.
SPLC is a politically driven organization that maliciously labels those it disagrees with “hate groups.” Whether from laziness or malevolence, journalists continue to parrot the slander, even as the mountain of evidence about SPLC’s real intentions grows.
In The Tablet, Liel Liebovitz is the latest to warn that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), although formerly a institution that targeted racism, is no longer the noble civil rights crusader it once was. Instead, the institute is raking in millions of dollars in donations while targeting people for disagreeing with Islam, identity politics, and the LGBTQ agenda.
The Media Research Center’s extensive report about online censorship is already having an impact. The analysis on how social media platforms silence conservatives was referenced four times during a key House Judiciary Committee Hearing on April 26, 2018.
Even though social media platforms are run by private companies, the First Amendment should apply to them in some fashion, suggests one congresswoman. In the April 26 committee hearing on “Filtering Practices of Social Media Platforms,” House Representative Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., spoke out about her own personal experience with conservative censorship on social media.
So much for the rumored intersectionality and tolerance of the left. It turns out they can be pretty racist and sexist when someone disagrees with them.

He stated, “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” causing controversy among the liberal Hollywood and Black Lives Matter circles.
By now, the media’s extended coverage of porn star Stormy Daniels and her affair with President Trump has gone above and beyond a fever pitch.
The most hostile gathering of liberal journalists and comedians is scheduled to be on April 28. And President Trump isn’t going. Gee, who knows why? On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Michelle Wolf, the White House Correspondents’ Dinner’s host for 2018, spoke to Kimmel about how she felt about Trump avoiding the event for the second year in a row.
The liberal media is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Do they worship Beyonce at Coachella? Or do they eschew Coachella for having something to do with a conservative?
Hollywood doesn’t really wield as much political influence as it thinks it does. But the media have apparently bought the tinsel-covered lie.
The New Yorker approaches topics like a shallow teenager: Slap a disparaging word onto a popular topic and bingo! You have journalism. Among the long, hallowed list of people, places and things the magazine has found “creepy,” the publication’s latest target is – surprise! – the Christianity of the Chik-fil-A franchise. Blogger Dan Piepenbring found the franchise’s “pervasive Christian traditionalism” with its statue of “Jesus washing a disciple’s feet” and its policy to close on Sundays just too much.
Hollywood is great at overreacting, since, after all, they are paid to do it.
In an interview with Chelsea Handler, published Thursday in Elle magazine, actress Charlize Theron warned the outspokenly liberal talk show host and activist that racism in America was so bad that she “might have to leave.” And the Trump administration is partially to blame.
