Scratch A Canadian TV Production

Seffi Kogen @seffikogen;

I think this is the most antisemitic thing I have ever seen in a TV show. For those of you unfamiliar with Jewish law, which puts precedent on healing and saving lives, there is no prohibition on the kind of bone graft in this clip. The writers made it up, dressed their actors in Jew-face, and put random extremist nonsense in their mouths.

Nurses is a “Canadian medical drama television series that premiered on Global on January 6, 2020”. (The writers and producers.)
 


 
From the comments: Did I hear right they called the patient Israel as well? Wow

“Democrats need to embrace Hollywood because this is where they need to come to learn how to tell a story.” – Michael Moore

Ellen DeGeneres whined about being stuck in her mega mansion, the first of several news cycles that damaged her populist appeal.
 
Later, when ordinary Americans fought back against the lockdowns decimating their livelihoods, stars mocked them as hicks who didn’t understand science and wanted to kill grandma while their paychecks kept a-coming.
 
Not a nice look. It got worse from there.
 
The usual celebrity angst against President Trump ramped up, if one can believe that was possible. The ugly comments got uglier, with some directly targeting Trump voters.
 
You know, the folks who also like to unwind at the local cineplex.

Indeed.

“YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH”.

Actress Kristen Connors walked off the set of a movie over former FBI Director James Comey and an intelligence-gathering operation against President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
 
Connors, who had agreed to play the part of a congressional interrogator in the upcoming film “ObamaGate,” quit the job after early table readings of the script. She called the film “propaganda,” according to the show’s producers. […]
 
“ObamaGate” producer Phelim McAleer, who is a contributor to The Daily Wire, slammed Connors in a statement, saying “‘ObamaGate The Movie’ is the complete opposite of propaganda. It is 100 percent verbatim. There is no drama or evidence added. Everything that you will see on screen came out of the mouths, memos, or is the sworn evidence of these FBI and DOJ operatives. It is the truth not propaganda.”

Oscars’ woke quota (via Ed Driscoll);

The easiest criterion to meet is apprenticeships for members of underrepresented groups, meaning anyone but straight white non-handicapped males. Welcome to low-paid internships, people of color! I’m sure Hollywood race relations will feel totally chill five years from now, when every java boy and latte girl serving America’s showbiz aristocracy is black. Soon the last surviving copy of “Gone with the Wind” will be locked in a vault accessible only to scholars of racism, but you’ll be able to see Tara re-enacted in Burbank and Culver City.

I’m Old Enough To Remember When A 1/4 Million People Taking To The Streets Was A Good Thing

Juxtapose time!

TMZ, August 8; Though the reasonable, safe and smart decision would have been to cancel the legendary Sturgis Motorcycle Rally … the South Dakota city’s doing what it can to keep it from becoming a COVID super-spreading event, and good luck with that.

“Democrats need to embrace Hollywood because this is where they need to come to learn how to tell a story.” – Michael Moore.

Shaken by #MeToo, paralysed by Covid-19, the $50 billion film industry is finally emerging from a four-month lockdown – only to find a new and very different world, where tension is rising as surely as the thermometer.
 
For if the very public Black Lives Matter protests have polarised America, the silent fallout has now reached Hollywood.
 
A revolution is under way. White actors are being fired. Edicts from studio bosses make it clear that only minorities – racial and sexual – can be given jobs.
 
A new wave of what has been termed by some as anti-white prejudice is causing writers, directors and producers to fear they will never work again. One described the current atmosphere as ‘more toxic than Chernobyl’, with leading actors afraid to speak out amid concern they will be labelled racist.

Useful idiots.
