A national writer for the Associated Press, Jocelyn Noveck, described
the Tony Awards as an event where tolerance and inclusion were
constant themes. So this is what Robert De Niro was doingexercising
his tolerancewhen he screamed F*** Trump?
At least De Niro didnt threaten violence against the president, which
he did previously (Id like to punch Donald Trump in the face, he
said during the last presidential campaign). More recently, he
vigorously defended Michelle Wolfs obscene-laden address at the White
House Correspondents Dinner. This is how Mr. Tolerance acts.
Another beacon of tolerance who spoke at the Tony Awards was Tony
Kushner. He implored the audience to heal our country.
Kushners idea of healing is to bash Catholics and Jews. He not only
cheered when Terrence McNally gave us Corpus Christi, the play where
Christ is depicted as having sex with the twelve apostles, he lashed
out at the Catholic League for exercising its First Amendment right to
free speech by protesting the play.
After Matthew Shepard was murdered in Wyoming, Kushner blamed the pope
for the homosexuals death: Pope John Paul II endorses murder, the
healer said. He has also been relentless in bashing the democratic
state of Israel.
When Andrew Garfield won the best actor award, he took the occasion to
reference the Supreme Court decision which affirmed religious liberty
in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case. He sided against the decision
calling on everyone to say no to bigotry, no to shame, no to
Its too bad Garfield didnt direct his comments at the gay bullies
who took aim at the baker, Jack Phillips. We declined to create one
custom cake to celebrate a wedding ceremony that would directly
violate my faiths teachings and it resulted in five years of court
battle, 40 percent of my business, losing half my staff and even death
threats, Phillips said.
Tolerance. Inclusion. Civility. The New York-Hollywood axis may shout
those virtues from the rooftop, but in practice they violate them with
regularity. There are no bigger phonies on earth.
