Hollywood does a lot these days to drive America’s liberal social narrative. They are normally at the forefront of every wacky feel-good leftist cause. Leonardo DiCaprio took the little time allotted for his first Oscar acceptance speech to preach his global warming nonsense.
DiCaprio said: “Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow.” He added: “Climate change is real, it is happening right now.”
Well Leo, you neglected to add that most of the movie was filmed in Canada during the winter when there was plenty of snow. But production delays pushed some of the shooting into July. That would be the middle of the summer, when historically there is NO SNOW! So I agree – climate change is real. It really changes from winter to summer every year.
Still, no one makes a fuss over his inane comments. No one argues that he should not be able to make such statements, regardless of their intelligence.
The same goes for another Hollywood intellectual lightweight – Eva Longoria, in her support for the Latino community. She insisted that everyone at the Oscars make a statement of solidarity by wearing a brown ribbon in support of Latinos. Her cause is to underscore the lack of Latinos working in films and TV.
