The Woke Taliban have been chipping away at artistic freedom for three decades, and now the actual death of artistic freedom will be enshrined by the Motion Picture Academy’s new “diversity requirements.”
The beginning of the end of an unprecedented era of artistic freedom, an era that began with Lenny Bruce and the death of the Motion Picture Production Code, arrived in the early 90s when comedians Sam Kinison and Andrew Dice Clay were shouted down over jokes. Although Clay and Kinison observed no sacred cows, their willingness to skewer the left scared Kinison into silence and derailed Clay’s career.
Over the past three decades, the fascism of political correctness has only grown more oppressive and suffocating, but now, with the left-wing moral panic sparked by the tragic death of George Floyd while in police custody, the left is emboldened; and when the left is emboldened, cities burn, statues topple, careers and people are disappeared, good men are murdered, civil liberties are trampled, and the dual horrors of blacklisting and censorship reign supreme.
The left’s blacklisting rampage is already in full force, and only getting started. Classic movies and television shows that are not disappearing entirely are either under direct threat or face the desecration of a Big Brother Corporation instructing us on how to think and feel about art.
