Why Celebrity Apartheid Week Matters

This is what the privilege of being connected to a Kenyan dictator Barack Obama can get you:

The Treasury Department "fully licensed" Beyonce and Jay Z's trip to Cuba, according to Reuters.

"American pop star Beyonce and rapper husband Jay Z visited Havana last week on a cultural trip that was fully licensed by the United States Treasury Department, according to a source familiar with the trip," Reuters reports.

"Beyonce and Jay Z celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in the Cuban capital, where big crowds greeted them as they strolled hand in hand through the city and posed for pictures with admiring Cubans.

"The longstanding U.S. trade embargo against Cuba prevents most Americans from traveling to the island without a license granted by the U.S. government, though President Barack Obama's administration has eased restrictions on travel to Cuba for academic, religious or cultural programs."

You see- when celebrities connected to a useless president go to Third World communist hellholes for the most absurdly transparent reasons, it's alright. You just can't do it. That's all.

And now, a fantastic article by 0.838 283 828 38 Ken of Rage:

The Company You Keep is about “a former Weather Underground activist who goes on the run from a journalist who has discovered his identity.”

(I’m sure the curators of the highly regarded and widely influential Internet Movie Database meant to write “terrorist” instead of “activist,” but their fingers must have slipped.)

As I joked in 2012, that fictional premise is a stark contrast from the fates of all the real Weather Underground terrorists who now teach at major universities, hang out with the president, get lovingly profiled in The New York Times and elsewhere—do everything except disguise their identities and hide from the authorities.

Hell, they are the authorities.

Imagine for a moment Hollywood glorifying someone who shoots up public places....

Oh wait...

It's alright when they do it.

This is what post-modern man wants as the arbiter of morals and values. How we have devolved.
