The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

This is perfect! Hollywood is known for its virtue-signalling support for the "little man," and every redistributionist and socialist cause under the sun and under every rock in Bel Air, but the reality is that the Left in America, ably represented by the out-of-touch dancing monkeys and mimics of Hollywood just love to be elite and be a part of their cozy little caste system. And why should they breathe the same air as lowly technicians, when they, and only they are the creative life-spark of their glorious world?

Scorsese, Tarantino, Other Filmmakers Call Academy's Oscar Plan "An Insult"

A lengthy list of leading filmmakers are blasting the Academy's plan to present four awards categories at the upcoming 91st Oscars during commercial breaks as "nothing less than an insult to those of us who have devoted our lives and passions to our chosen profession." They are calling for the Academy to reverse its decision.
I wonder whether women and minorities are more heavily represented in the discarded categories that the Academy (what a pompous word to use!) thinks unworthy of the public's appreciation and applause? Wouldn't that be delicious!

He took bribes and probably raped little girls in the Dominican Republic during his jaunts there with his crooked buddy, and still got reelected in NJ, so trust me when I say nothing will happen.
Menendez threatens to call police on reporter asking about Green New Deal
"Don't keep harassing me anymore or I'll race to the Capitol Police," the New Jersey Democrat threatened.

But weren't the Democrats up in arms last year when the White House pushed back against a "journalist?" I assume then that Menendez will get a stern talking-to from the Senate leadership...

It's from a law professor at Columbia University, so of course it's a blathering bunch of illogical and under-informed bullshit, but it goes farther than anything I have read in its condemnation of modern society, free will, and the American way of life.
The Green New Deal Is What Realistic Environmental Policy Looks Like
What do these goals have to do with stabilizing atmospheric carbon levels before climate change makes large parts of the world uninhabitable? What has taken liberal critics aback is that the Green New Deal strays so far from the traditional environmental emphasis on controlling pollution, which the carbon tax aims to do, and tries to solve the problems of economic inequality, poverty and even corporate concentration (there’s an antimonopoly clause).

But this everything-and-the-carbon-sink strategy is actually a feature of the approach, not a bug, and not only for reasons of ideological branding. In the 21st century, environmental policy is economic policy. Keeping the two separate isn’t a feat of intellectual discipline. It’s an anachronism.

It's essentially Stalin's plan for the Ukranians around 1932-1933, only made pretty by modern language.
