On Sunday, the Academy Awards took place in Hollywood, California, and predictably, it featured elitist Hollywood actors lecturing us little people in the middle of the country about how we should live our lives. The night featured many lectures about diversity, climate change, and other issues pertaining to all-around “wokeness.”
The strangest speech of the night belonged to Best Actor winner Joaquin Phoenix who defended the rights of baby cows and decried the injustice of dairy consumption while accepting an award for his performance in “Joker.” That is no joke, he actually did this. During his acceptance speech he said, “We go into the natural world and we plunder it for its resources. We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and when she gives birth, we steal her baby. Even though her cries of anguish are unmistakable. And then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal. “
Um, ok. Not sure where Joaquin was going with that train of thought—but anyway, moving on…
Karl Marx must have been smiling up from hell last night as he watched Julia Reichert—who won for best documentary film—quoting from Marx’s own “Communist Manifesto.” Yup, the Hollywood Left is still quoting a man whose ideology led to the deaths of 100 million people in the 20th century. Reichert said this after accepting her Oscar for directing the documentary “American Factory”: “Working people have it harder and harder these days—and we believe that things will get better when workers of the world unite.”
How woke! How Hollywood!
Producer Julia Reichert cites the Communist Manifesto because… well, we all know why.

The term “workers of the world unite” is a famous line from the Communist Manifesto.
But Reichert wasn’t the only notable name associated with this film. The documentary was produced by none other than former President Barack Obama. That’s right, good old Barry Obama is in the movie business now, producing content for Netflix. He recently inked a multi-million- dollar deal to produce documentary films for the streaming giant. I wonder if Obama has made enough money yet? He once said that at some point rich people make enough money and then they should stop making more. I guess he hasn’t hit that magic number yet.
Obama, rather than distancing himself from the comments, instead congratulated his Marx-supporting director. The former president tweeted, “Congrats to Julia and Steven, the filmmakers behind the America factory, for telling such a complex, moving story about the very human consequences of wrenching economic change. Glad to see two talented and downright good people take home the Oscar for Higher Ground’s first release.”

Obama failed to mention Julia’s fondness for Karl Marx. We have been told how brilliant Obama is, so I am sure he was keenly aware that she was referring to the Communist Manifesto in her speech.
If Karl Marx had his way, none of us would be able to own private property. In the Communist Manifesto, Marx articulated his utopian plan, writing wrote: “In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property. We communists have been reproached with the desire of abolishing the right of personally acquiring property as the fruit of a man’s labor, which property is alleged to be the groundwork of all personal freedom, activity, and independence.”
If Marx had his way, a lot of Hollywood actors wouldn’t be living in mansions anymore. Instead of attending awards shows, they’d be standing in bread lines.
They should be thanking their lucky stars that the workers of the world HAVEN’T united.
