John Nolte asks....why the outrage over the NBA giving in to China? Hollywood has been doing it for over a decade.... Nolte: If You Think the NBA Sucks Up to China, Wait Till You Meet Hollywood I am baffled over this NBA uproar. You mean people really care about all the terrible human rights abuses committed by the ChiComs? Because you could have fooled me. Hey, hey — over here! Remember this? Breitbart News has been reporting on this going back at least seven years. Oh, wait — eight years… You see, some of us figured out something was terribly wrong with Hollywood, terribly misguided, terribly illiberal, when 2012′ s Red Dawn remake, which had already been shot, was forced to digitally scrub every reference to the Chinese as the bad guys. Instead of Red China successfully invading a chunk of America, which is at least somewhat plausible, digital magic told us the North Koreans had done it, which is absurd. Yes, the starving, tiny, hapless North Koreans beat the United States Marines. ------- This is just how anti-art Hollywood has become in its effort to suck up to a government currently engaging in human rights abuses on par with Hitler. Forget about China’s past. Forget about Mao and Year Zero and 45 million deaths. As I write this, the Chinese government is using appalling violence to repress its own people, and not just the Hong Kong protesters. China, like Cuba, is a massive prison, a giant concentration camp, and Hollywood does not care because Hollywood is, above all, insatiably greedy. If Hollywood wants access to China’s massive movie-going public, to thousands and thousands of movie screens, China forces Hollywood to toe the line, lick its boots, censor itself, and — worst of all — depict the Chinese government as heroic and noble, which is no different than depicting the Nazis as heroic and noble. And we are not just talking about the movies Hollywood wants to distribute in China. You remember that Red Dawn remake I was just talking about? It never left the county. Red Dawn wasn’t censored and twisted into something laughable because Hollywood wanted to distribute it in China. Even though there was no foreign distribution whatsoever; even though it was produced for American consumption only, it was still censored so it wouldn’t offend the Chinese government. This was a key moment for Hollywood, this was back in 2011 when the film industry was desperate to gain admission to all those Chinese screens, when the film industry was sniveling and groveling to its Chinese masters purely out of greed. Here’s what happened… The Chinese government leveraged Hollywood’s desperation to gain a frightening amount of control over all of Hollywood’s content. The Red Chinese, these mass-murdering fiends, now have veto power over America’s greatest art form. And it is not just the movies. Because of all this consolidation over the past thirty years, because big companies continue to get bigger and bigger as they gobble up other companies, the very same multi-nationals that own the movie business also own the television and news business.
