The Culture Wars Not Good For SoCal Biz



By Stephen Frank,  California Political News and Views

The Rams and Chargers came to Los Angeles, just in time to join the cultural wars, the New American Civil War.  While they may feel good about promoting hatred and bigotry, feel good about misrepresenting history and the current Rules of laws—the public, by not watching them on TV, not showing up at games—and tanking the after market in tickets, have shown themselves to have missed Economics I—don’t abuse the customer.

Then we have the bullying, lack of freedom and free speech at UCLA and USC—and the open anti-Semitism at UC Irvine—and the racism and sexism promoted at the Claremont colleges—and the quality of education is compromised.

“America’s seemingly unceasing culture wars are not good for business, particularly for a region like Southern California. As we see Hollywood movie stars, professional athletes and the mainstream media types line up along uniform ideological lines, a substantial portion of the American ticket and TV watching population are turning them off, sometimes taking hundreds of millions of dollars from the bottom line.

This payback being dealt out to urbane culture-meisters by the “deplorables” are evidenced by historically poor ratings for such hyper-politicized events as the Oscars last year as well as this year’s Emmys. The current controversy surrounds the NFL player protests, which are lowering already weak ratingsdown 10 percent since the national anthem protests, as well as plunging movie ticket sales. The oddly political sports network ESPN has seen declines close to catastrophic, although how much their often strident “resistance” turns off viewers is widely debated.”

Weinstein is just the latest example of the hypocrisy, double standard and lack of common sense of Hollywood.  If I wanted to support and promote bigotry, hatred, totalitarianism, I would buy an over priced ticket to a bad movie.
