King Hitting King By Charles Taylor, Florida
Stephen King writes trash in MY opinion, but many people love him. Well, it is an unfree country, and we all have opinions, until imprisoned in concentration camps. But consider: there was a mostly white male Oscar night, and King made the mistake of saying, well, its just quality, bud, not discrimination. No, wrong policy move:
“Author and Trump hater Stephen King is feeling the heat from fellow liberals following his tweets about the Academy Award nominations, in which he said that quality is more important than diversity when it comes to creating works of art. Filmmaker Ava DuVernay hit back at King, calling his comments “backward and ignorant.” Author Laura Lippman also called out King, saying that the Hollywood system is “rigged.” Roxane Gay, the author and contributing opinion writer at The New York Times, expressed her disappointment in King, saying that “most industries only believe in quality from one demographic.” King has become a darling among left-wing Hollywood types and the cultural elite for his vehement anti-Trump stance. The author of The Shining and Misery has repeatedly insulted President Donald Trump and his supporters on social media, calling him a “horse’s ass” and a “vile, racist, and incompetent bag of guts.” Stephen King posted his diversity comments in reaction to mainstream media outrage over the Oscar nominations on Monday. Hollywood journalists turned their knives on the the Academy for what they saw as a lack of diversity among this year’s acting categories. Harriet actress Cynthia Erivo was the only non-white acting nominee this year, prompting journalists to resurrect the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag.”
Silly fellow, he forgot the ever-present, diversity thing. That’s the spirit, chattering class, fight amongst yourselves, and sink each other! Sink your fangs into each other. It cannot happen to more deserving people! Get to it with gusto!
