MUST READ: Ben Shapiro Delivers Brilliant Take Down of Actor Andrew Garfield’s ‘Bake the Cake’ Comment

Nicely said.

During the Tony Awards Sunday evening, many actors took advantage of the national platform they had to make utter fools of themselves and push the progressive agenda they hold so dear in small soundbites meant to make them appear “woke” and “hip” with the young crowd, many of whom could probably care less about the Tonys.

One such individual was Andrew Garfield, the former Spider-Man actor, who called for folks to be just a little nicer to each other and to “just bake a cake for whoever wants cakes baked.”

Doesn’t that sound like a horrific attempt at a Dr. Seuss rhyme?

Anyway, conservative powerhouse Ben Shapiro had a great takedown of the comment:

But Garfield went out of his way to virtue signal, obliquely and incorrectly, that the Supreme Court’s recent case suggesting that a particular Christian bakery could not be forced to serve a cake to a gay wedding was deeply wrong:

Garfield stated, “We are all sacred and we all belong,” adding, “just bake a cake for everyone who wants a cake to be baked.”

Garfield’s definition of the sacred may not be universal. But his political opinion certainly shouldn’t be taken as such, lest conservatives demand that Garfield act in a play version of the Masterpiece Cakeshop case, perhaps as the head of that Christian bakery being vindictively targeted by LGBT activists.

This isn’t the first time Garfield has gotten himself in hot water by pandering to supposed LGBT priorities. During a press conference in July 2017, Garfield said he “wouldn’t rule out” a same-sex relationship and said that he had researched his Angels in America role by watching RuPaul. This led to some backlash:

Garfield’s suggestion that he’s just interested in everyone being a little nicer rings hollow when he calls for the government to regulate just how religious people should act in their businesses, in violation of their religion. That’s not tolerance. It’s intolerance. And Garfield would know that if he weren’t ensconced in his Broadway bubble.

Excellent take by Shapiro and one that couldn’t be more true.

Part of the problem with modern American society is that folks who know that traditional marriage and sexuality is foundational to a healthy culture have spent far too long being silent, not engaging the arts with the truth of Scripture and the principles we know need to be applied to how we live our lives.

It’s now an uphill battle to promote traditional marriage, having children, and other things that are needed for a healthy society. Instead of just complaining about actors like Garfield, we need to be engaging the arts ourselves, pushing our message through creative storytelling that appeals to a mass audience.

This is what the left has done for decades and it’s how they have completely reshaped American culture. It will take time, but if conservatives spent more time employing this same method, we would be more effective in turning things around.

The first openly gay cabinet member got little to no recognition from the mainstream media because he worked for a Republican administration. After all, the MSM works as the public relations branch of the Democrat Party. What Richard Grenell said on Monday, though, will have every liberal in the media listening intently. #Trump2024 WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1353516978544250882?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1353516978544250882%7Ctwgr%5E&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Frichard-grenell-trump-does-want-to-run-again-in-2024-video%2F President Tucker Carlson? How does that sound to you? Could it one day happen, perhaps as soon as 2024? Only time will tell, obviously, but the rumor is abuzzin’. From Politico: Tucker Carlson’s audience is booming — and so is chatter that the popular Fox News host will parlay his TV perch into a run for president in 2024. Republican strategists, conservative commentators, and former Trump campaign and administration officials are buzzing about Carlson as the next-generation leader of Donald Trump’s movement — with many believing he would be an immediate frontrunner in a Republican primary. CONTINUED: “He’s a talented communicator with a massive platform. I think if he runs he’d be formidable,” said Luke Thompson, a Republican strategist who worked for Jeb Bush’s super PAC in 2016. While practically every Republican eyeing a 2024 presidential run is professing loyalty to Trump the person, Carlson has become perhaps the highest-profile proponent of “Trumpism” — a blend of anti-immigrant nationalism, economic populism and America First isolationism that he articulates unapologetically and with some snark. At the same time, he’s shown a rare willingness among Republicans to bluntly criticize Trump when he believes the president is straying from that ideology.

Chief Justice Roberts Will Not Preside Over Impeachment Trial, Will Be Top Dem Leader Instead

They want revenge, vengeance.

“Wanna know how I got these scars?” That was the question Heath Ledger’s Joker asked a partygoer in 2008’s The Dark Knight. Said partygoer is the man who will preside over the second impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Not a joke. Just search the internet for SENATOR LEAHY BATMAN. From The Hill: Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts will not preside over former President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, which is scheduled to begin in earnest on Feb. 8. Instead, Senate President Pro Tempore Patrick Leahy (Vt.), the most senior member of the Senate Democratic Conference, will preside over the trial. CONTINUED: Leahy on Monday confirmed he would wield the gavel and promised to administer “impartial justice.” “The president pro tempore has historically presided over Senate impeachment trials of non-presidents. When presiding over an impeachment trial, the president pro tempore takes an additional special oath to do impartial justice according to the Constitution and its laws. It is an oath that I take extraordinarily seriously,” he said in a statement. How incredibly moronic is it to impeach a president after he has left office? What a waste of time. Democrats have proven, time and again, that they are not out for “unity.” Not at all. They want revenge; vengeance; blood. Okay, I did the search for you.
