Hurray For Hollywood


Like everyone else I have watched a lot of Netflix during the pandemic. On a Wednesday i’m watching a movie about Dalton Trumbo and the Hollywood Ten. The US Congress would vote overwhelming 346-17 to hold Trumbo and nine others in contempt. The moral of the story was that it was not illegal to be a communist in America. The movie would directly and indirectly take shots at a Republican Senator and a Republican controlled Supreme Court.

But let’s assume that Dalton had a twin brother named Dillon and that he belonged to a group of National Socialists. Like his brother he refuses to name the names of his fellow Nazi’s. Is the only moral of this story then, that the brothers defended their right to believe in whatever they wished to? But what about the potential mortality of either brother supporting a Hitler or a Stalin? Dalton’s movie says nothing about Stalin and a “Dillon” type of movie will never be made! But that “minor” oversight will not stop the socialist democrats from giving this movie two thumbs way up!

And that is all I’m going to say about that.
