Living amid Hollywood hypocrisy
“In Hollywood, they deplore censorship. Yet they embrace tyrants such as Hugo Chavez who use their power to censor opposition voices. They sneer at Wall Street even as they fall all over themselves running to see how many millions their movies have grossed. They think Obamacare works nicely for poor people in the “flyover states,” yet they would never accept anything but the top doctors for themselves.
They think socialism is a novelty — a nicety whose time has come. Yet how odd to imagine their lot under a Chavez or a Castro or a Stalin. Just picture the collapse of Hollywood’s playground — the redistribution of their wealth, the despotic squelching of their free speech, the strangling of their rights and riches.
They would howl like lone wolves do in Westerns. They would beg like Scarlett O’Hara. They would scream like the Wicked Witch of the West. But instead of screaming, “I’m melting! I’m melting!”, they would scream, “Not me! Not me!”"
