Oscar hates America

Sean and Hugo

While we await an on-the-spot report, it's worth pointing out that the US did not fare well in the Oscars. There was an Australian host, almost all of the major categories were dominated by Europeans and Asians, and the only American winners in big categories were a gay screenwriter and notorious Anti-American Sean Penn. I guess Hollywood liberals really do hate America.

Update: As far as I'm concerned Sean Penn and Dustin Lance Black are as American as apple pie and Mickey Rourke, but they are somewhat more marginalized than say, Meryl Streep.

Since when does gay = unamerican?

Well something like gay=typical Hollywood liberal=unanamerican?
As far as I'm concerned, the lovely Dustin Lance Black is American as they come, but I'm not sure Bill O'Reilly agrees.
Right now on Billoreilly.com: "Milk" screenwriter touts gay marriage. During his acceptance speech for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar, "Milk" writer Dustin Lance Black goes on a pro-gay marriage rant. For more on this and other far left displays during the Oscars, watch The O'Reilly Factor tonight on Fox News Channel."

As far as "real" America's relationship with gay people, the protesters that Sean Penn referred to in his acceptance speech were indeed from the Westboro Baptist Church (the people behind the "God hates fags" website whose main idea seems to be that God hates all Americans because we're so unholy and sinful) and they were holding up signs near the theater saying "USA = Fags". So according to these nutcases, I guess gay does equal American, but in a totally f'ed up, insane way that doesn't mean anything.
