Emily Blunt Calls the Reign of the "Strong Female Character" the "Worst Thing Ever;" New Movie Rips Woke Snowflakes as "Robots" Whose "Souls" Are "Architected" by Social Media

I think people started to get sick of endless wokery by 2020 -- but then St. George Floyd was martyred and Hollywood and the Ruling Class forced the country into reeducation camps again.

Maybe they're letting us out of The Camps again.

Emily Blunt is sick of "strong female characters" and calls the phenomenon the "worst thing ever."

Actress Emily Blunt sent the hardcore feminists into a tailspin on Tuesday when she admitted to being "bored" with the much-ballyhooed "strong female lead."

Blunt issued her frank remarks about the woke character descriptor during an interview with The Telegraph, calling it the "worst thing ever."

"It's the worst thing ever when you open a script and read the words 'strong female lead,'" Blunt said. "That makes me roll my eyes. I'm already out. I'm bored. Those roles are written as incredibly stoic, you spend the whole time acting tough and saying tough things."

"Strong female character" used to mean strongly-written character. A woman so depressed over losing her child so as to have become a vicious madwoman could be a "strongly-written character," even though her psyche was broken and the character is clearly not obviously "strong" in terms of capacity to withstand any trauma. But such a character could be compelling and great material for an actor looking for a challenge.

Now "strong female character" means "morally unassailable and physically invulnerable." In other words: Boring pap.

But "boring pap" is what Doctrinaire Identity Politics demands. Political "Art" is never actually art at all.

A clip from an upcoming movie, Tár, is going viral.

The scene shows Lydia Tár (Blanchett) teaching a Bach piece to her students. When she asks a student, Max, what he thinks of the piece, he replies: "Nowadays, white, male, cis composers -- just not my thing."

Tár proceeds to put him on the spot, dismantling his rote-woke response in front of his classmates.

"Don't be so eager to be offended," she replies before referencing Sigmund Freud. "The narcissism of small differences leads to the most boring conformity."

"The problem with enrolling yourself as an ultrasonic, epistemic dissident is that if Bach's talent can be reduced to his gender, birth country, religion, sexuality and so on, then so can yours."

At the end of her speech, Max storms out of the class, calling her a "fucking bitch."

Tár replies: "And you are a robot. Unfortunately, the architect of your soul appears to be social media."

The portrait isn't entirely positive but there's no doubt this is a fist-pumping scene.
