No Irish, Scots, Angolan Or Indian Actors Win An Oscar: Racism, Probably

by | 28th, February 2011

WANT to know why no Irish, Scots, Indian or Angolan won an Oscar?

Rush Limbaugh knows why:

“… You have a very powerful industry run by liberal Democrats, very rich liberal Democrats, and they have their top ten best movies, nominated best movies, and not a single person of color nominated for anything, not even best supporting stooge….”

A Bo Snerdley replies:

Rush, there is something tremendously insidious and vile underneath this resegregation, resegregation of Hollywood. Our leading Hollywood producers — and we all know who they are — the Spielbergs, the bigwigs are simply look at black and Latino America in the face, especially black America, and you know what they’re saying to ’em? They’re saying, “Look, we gave you people enough. We elected him president. We did that. We don’t have to put any of you people in movies anymore.”

RUSH: You people?

Any Austrians win..?

Spotter: Althouse
