The pop music sensation simply known as Beyonce is the toast of the cultural left for a new video titled "Formation." Several scenes are racially charged, including the pop diva sinking into the water on top of a New Orleans police cruiser, a nod to Hurricane Katrina propaganda. In another, a young black boy in a hooded sweatshirt dances in front of a line of white police until they go "Hands up" to his dancing talent.

For a conservative, perhaps nothing in popular culture is more amusing than watching leftist Hollywood beat itself up with the battle cry "Oscars So White." For a group of people that can't possibly assemble at awards shows without making egregious displays of what passes for "progressive thought," this fight over putative racism is as entertaining as the movies themselves. Grab some popcorn.

Just a couple of weeks after CNN happily acquiesced to a quickly improvised "town hall" meeting for President Obama to promote gun control, they once again agreed with the Democrats to provide a "town hall" event with Iowa voters.

Sean Penn has long been the poster boy for the Hollywood left, another one of those overpaid dilettantes who constantly berate the country that's given him international fame and incredible wealth. Penn's loathing of Yankee imperialism is so intense that he thinks America is "over-demonizing" a Mexican drug kingpin that Forbes magazine estimates is responsible for the deaths of 34,000 people -- mostly Mexicans.

New York Times columnist David Brooks poses as a moderate who never stoops to being crabbily doctrinaire. He is the very model of a PBS/NPR "conservative" -- defining conservatism in a very 1950s way, as wearing dreary gray suits and liking Ike and Dick Nixon. Go along, and get along with the liberal elites.

Hillary Clinton has slammed Donald Trump for having a "penchant for sexism," but the Clinton-adoring media are acting shocked and dismayed that Trump would be so rude as to respond that she ought to look at her own husband when it comes to sexism and a "record of women abuse."

When Ted Turner was running CNN back in 1991, he banned the use of the word "foreign" on air. In a memo to employees, he made a threat to fine employees with a forced donation to UNICEF. To avoid offense, they were told they should use the word "international" instead because it "promotes a sense of unity."

Our news media are so overwhelmingly obsequious to the Democrats that Hillary Clinton can imply the relatives of the Americans killed in Benghazi are liars on national TV, and no one in the press blinks an eye or finds it newsworthy.

Americans are infatuated with celebrities, but unfortunately for the left, that love doesn't translate into a popular landslide for the liberal point of view. Celebrity millionaires love to pose as compassionate citizens for the cameras, and it doesn't matter if anything changes.
