Normally we’d file entertainment awards shows like the Emmys under “who gives a rat’s ass.” Though, this time the Emmy’s made a couple of interesting admissions in their opening song. Namely, that Tinseltown has a grudge against white boys and anyone who isn’t a Democrat.
The 70th Annual Emmy Awards kicked off the program on Monday night with a not-so-subtle comedic jab at political correctness, as comedian Andy Samberg was told he “can’t be a part of” the opening song after he made his grand entrance asking if there was room “for a straight white guy like me”?
“Look at us. We’re all different in the same way. We solved it!” sang “This Is Us” actor Sterling Brown, referring to television’s perceived “diversity problem.” “This room is so diverse, ‘from Democrat to liberal Democrat, can I sing another verse?”
“What? Did something happen? But what about me?” injected Andy Samberg as he was lowered in on a half moon prop. “Is there any room in this song for a straight white guy like me?”
Kate McKinnon provided the answer: “Anyway, you can’t be a part of this.”
Well, at least they’re finally being honest.
Now, I know this song is in the realm of humor, but it’s not far off from the truth. Lefties frequently whine about whitey being allowed to make too many motion pictures. They attempt to crush any project that doesn’t mesh with their political narrative.
Now, if you think this Emmys song means Hollywood is going to stop blacklisting everyone to the right of Lenin abandon their anti-honkiness, I wouldn’t get my hopes up. This is lip service at best. Though, the first step toward recovery is admitting you have a problem. So, maybe there’s hope yet.
