Seth Rogen says it’s time to make movies that don’t star white people – and that’s not discriminatory?

LOS ANGELES, CA – Hollywood actor-producer Seth Rogen said in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly:

 “I mean personally, I think I am just actively trying to make less things starring white people. And if I’m succeeding or I’m not, I’m very much looking to have a far more diverse group of writers and directors and actors that we generally work with, because that group is not incredibly diverse, you know?” 

He went on to say:

“So that’s how I’ve been trying to deal with it, is just to actively take as they would say, anti-racist measures to assure that some work is being done to acknowledge that black people are very marginalized in American society,” 

There are certainly a lot of the Hollywood crowd throwing themselves on their swords to be politically correct in 2020 and even before.

Seth Rogen was speaking to EW to promote his new HBO Max movie An American Pickle, where he plays a Jewish immigrant in the 1920s who accidentally gets preserved in pickle brine, only to awaken a century later in modern day Brooklyn.

Rogen recently told moviegoers who disagree with his support for the Black Lives Matter movement that they don’t “deserve” his movies.

Interestingly enough, when Rogen was asked about his earlier movies, and about editing the originals to make them more in line with the new 2020 BLM thinking, he said:

“There are things in our films that I look back on and I’m like, Well that ranges from debatable to outright objectionable! I know our heart was in the right place and we were always trying honestly to be on the progressive side of things but we failed spectacularly at times.”

He continued:

“[But] I don’t look back and think, Do I wish we could re-edit our movies? I mean if anything, we should have to live with the fact that we did it and let people point out that it was terrible and we’ll just have to deal with it, you know?”

One has to wonder how he feels about tearing down statues and destroying other works that aren’t his…

There don’t appear to be any Seth Rogen movies with a Black actor in a starring roll, but back in 2018, a movie he produced used an 11 year old Black actor named Keith L. Williams, who apparently wasn’t dark enough for the role, and was put in blackface and an Afro-wig for filming according to a report by TMZ.

Rogen also said in a recent interview that the reason for Israel’s existence “makes no sense,” and that the notion of a Jewish homeland was comparable to putting them in a blender.

So apparently his self loathing goes further than his skin color.

Rogen’s move is an obvious ploy to pander to the “woke” basement dwellers of the 2020 movement.  His list of movies is an abysmal list of “time you’ll never get back ” toilet humor, and the awards they have won are none too many have ever heard.

Black actors should probably stick with the intelligent humor of Blazing Saddles or 48 Hours or the Medea series, before lowering themselves to the racist pandering of a Rogen offer.  There are lot’s of great roles out there for the talent pool, and there are a lot better producers than Seth Rogen offering them.

This is not the first time figures in Hollywood have taken a stance in support of the BLM movement. Here is a story Law Enforcement Today brought you about Hollywood elites supporting “defunding” police. 

BEVERLY HILLS, CA.- In the ultimate case of karma biting someone in the ass, this is perfect. As we have seen over the past month, Hollywood elites have been at the forefront of contributing to bail out sometimes violent protesters, the defund the police movement, and virtue signaling by admitting their “white privilege.” How sweet was it then to see an overnight demonstration Friday in Beverly Hills?

Police told NBC-4 that 28 people were arrested Saturday for violating a recently passed city ordinance which banned most nighttime gatherings of 10 or more people, according to a sergeant from the Beverly Hills PD.

Police Sgt. Thomas West told City News Service that most of the arrests were for unlawful assembly, and were made around 1 a.m. One suspect was charged with suspicion of arson.

“Apparently the suspect was [attempting] to light a building or something on fire,” West said. “They [the arrestees] are here at our station being processed. Once they are processed, they can be cited out. With 28 people, it’s just taking a while.”

The demonstrations started at around 7:30 p.m. in the area of Santa Monica Boulevard, according to BHPD. Police said around 100 protesters sat in the middle of the roadway by 8:00 p.m., which impacted traffic.

The demonstration then moved into a residential area of Rodeo Drive, stopping briefly at the Beverly Hills sign.

Some of the responses to the tweet were classic:

Here, we have someone who thinks that kissing up to the protesters and telling them you support their cause, but stay the hell out of our neighborhood:

Then we have the person who flunked constitutional law, but stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night:

Then you have someone who feels like most of the rest of us do:

On June 13, Beverly Hills banned nighttime gatherings of at least 10 or more people in residential areas, and other public places. This was in response to two protests that apparently interrupted the “beautiful people’s” “beauty rest,” disrupting the “tranquility” of a neighborhood.

You see, the beautiful people who populate Hollywood are fine telling the rest of us how to live our lives, and lecturing us on our “privilege,” telling us we need defund the police while they live in their gated mansions with private security, and saying that we don’t need a border wall while they live behind six-foot walls. They’re hypocrites.

The ban, put in place via a proclamation from City Manager George Chavez acting in his role as director of emergency services, was a response to two nighttime protests in residential areas conducted by a group called Occupy Beverly Hills.

According to the proclamation, a protest held on June 13 “included bullhorns and amplified music and disrupted the tranquility of the residential neighborhood during hours when many people would be ordinarily sleeping.”

Awwww. Poor babies.

The protesters who gathered on Friday, affiliated with Black Lives Matter (you know, the group all the Hollywood leftists have been donating to) chanted as they marched through the neighborhood, “Eat the rich!” and “Abolish capitalism now!”

The managing editor of Human Events, Ian Miles Cheong compiled videos of the demonstration on his Twitter account, saying at one point:

“The Black Lives Matter mob shut down Santa Monica Boulevard, Rodeo Drive and intersections around the city center,” Cheong wrote. He noted at one point the mob “seized a privately owned American flag in a residential suburb, shredding it and pulling it down.”

And what we’ve all been thinking:

 

 

So, in this case, clearly this wasn’t one of the Hollywood celebrities because unless it was someone like Jon Voight or James Woods, they definitely wouldn’t be flying an American flag—perhaps an old remnant from the Soviet Union.

“The police showed up in full force to arrest members of the Black Lives Matter mob making a nuisance of themselves across residential Los Angeles streets,” Cheong captioned one post. “One pretended to be injured by the police and forced them to drag him.”

The city did delineate between protests and “quiet” events. “Any assembly that is silent, such as a candlelight vigil, and gatherings on private property are exempt from this emergency order,” the city added.

 Liberal Hollywood elites have been lecturing us for years on everything from global warming, aka “climate change” (as they jet set around the world in private jets),  to wage disparity, poverty, homelessness and every other kind of social justice topic, yet you don’t see them living in the inner-city neighborhoods. It’s easy to demand the police be defunded when you have professional armed bodyguards to protect you.

Now, the Hollywood elites are getting a taste of the medicine they’ve been telling the rest of us to tolerate for years. And it doesn’t taste too good, does it? 

Karma-in this and previous states of existence, viewed as deciding their fate in future existences. This is also called “what goes around, comes around.”

To quote Khan from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and the old Klingon proverb- Revenge is a dish best served cold…it is very cold…in space.

 

Getting a little cold there, Hollywood liberal hypocrites?
