How #MeToo stifles Hollywood creativity: One writer's story

Amanda HeadRebel Contributor

 

Now a theatre is refusing to show the classic film Gone With the Wind because it's "racist."

But what about new works of art? The climate of self-censorship is so pervasive in Hollywood right now, thanks to #MeToo and other movements, that I wonder what the future of entertainment will look like.

For every irreverent show like South Park, which runs for decades and wins awards, there are plenty of programs like Last Man Standing, which had huge ratings but was cancelled anyway for being too "right wing."

At least one writer I know is feeling the pressure...

When are they going to bring back Last Man Standing? The time is ripe for its return. If Rosanne can get the response it has so far, why wouldn’t it be time for a return of Tim Allen. It is shameful that it ever got cancelled in the first place. We all knew the lame excuses for the decision were lies. The left couldn’t allow a tv show that leaned right when Killary was running. Gawd, can you imagine if she had got in?
I don’t do much TV , but these shows are important for the culture. Lets hope movies give the right some content soon . I don’t think it is the beginning of the end, I think it is the beginning of some balance on screen.
Optimistic, I know.
South Parks writing is brilliant.

POINTS TO PONDER…..AS WE FALL OFF THE PRECIPICE OF POLITICAL CORRECTNESS INTO THE PIT OF DARKNESS. WE WILL LOOK BACK AT ONCE WAS AND SHRUG. THERE’S NOTHING WE CAN DO. NOW IF YOU KNOW YOUR HISTORY YOU KNOW WHAT IS COMING…..A CIVIL WAR…A WAR THAT WILL BE AS BLOODY AS ANYTHING SEEN IN HISTORY. YOU CAN ONLY PUSH PEOPLE SO FAR, UNTIL THEY RISE UP AND TAKE MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN HANDS. SO SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE RIDE.
