• Oscars: ‘American Sniper’ Snubbed, Liberal Hypocrisy On Display

    Though American Sniper has broken tons of Hollywood records, it came up short among Oscars Best Picture voters.

    The story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle did win an Oscar for best Sound Editing. (Which seems like a messed up joke).

    Birdman won Best Picture. The Michael Keaton-starring film was directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (who won Best Director). Inarritu says Birdman is about an “aging superhero movie star suffering an identity crisis — and seeking redemption by mounting a serious Broadway play.”

    But what is a night filled with self-obsessed Hollywood liberals, without a little bit of bone-deep hypocrisy?

    Boyhood star Patricia Arquette urged income equality during her Oscars acceptance speech. “To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation, we have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all, and equal rights for women in the United States of America!” she said.

    And as if on que, Democratic lawmakers were clapping like trained seals for Arquette’s brave and edgy stance.

    Even Valerie Jarrett jumped on the bandwagon.

    What makes this particularly sleazy is the fact that the same Hollywood blowhards applauding Arquette’s call for “wage equality,” were all handed $167,000 “swag bags.”

    Take a look at what these struggling social warriors were given just for showing up to an award show:
