It’s getting harder and harder to find a host for the Oscars… and the PC police are a big part of the problem.
Hosting a major event like the Oscars is harder than it looks. Just ask the folks who’ve washed out doing it.
You’ve got to pick someone with the chops to entertain a room full of professional entertainers. And you should pick someone who isn’t so divisive that half the nation doesn’t switch off rather than tune in to be mocked and abused by the champagne-sipping jet-set for an endless couple of hours. Have you SEEN the ratings plummeting lately? Jimmy Kimmel’s war on Conservatives hasn’t done anything for the Oscars Brand.
So they picked someone who went out of his way not to alienate ‘Flyover Country’. A guy whose politics may tilt left, but who doesn’t see the need to bludgeon the rest of us over it.
They picked Kevin Hart. Not a bad choice, right?
Normally, we’d say yes. But the Inquisitors on the Left started combing through his history, looking for some sin that would disqualify him. Not surprisingly — these kill-joys, the Buckle-shoed ‘Impuritans’ dug until they found proof of heresy.
And now Kevin Hart will be stepping down from the hosting gig.
But he will NOT be repenting of or apologizing for his secular ‘heresy’.
What upset his Inquisitors so badly? Is it even a question?
GLAAD, the advocacy group for LGBTQ rights, said Thursday that it reached out to Oscars broadcaster ABC, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences and Hart’s management to “discuss Kevin’s anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and record.”
He addressed the situation in an Instagram video.

Stop looking for reasons to be negative…Stop searching for reasons to be angry….I swear I wish you guys could see/feel/understand the mental place that I am in. I am truly happy people….there is nothing that you can do to change that…NOTHING. I work hard on a daily basis to spread positivity to all….with that being said. If u want to search my history or past and anger yourselves with what u find that is fine with me. I’m almost 40 years old and I’m in love with the man that I am becoming. You LIVE and YOU LEARN & YOU GROW & YOU MATURE. I live to Love….Please take your negative energy and put it into something constructive. Please….What’s understood should never have to be said. I LOVE EVERYBODY…..ONCE AGAIN EVERYBODY. If you choose to not believe me then that’s on you….Have a beautiful day
Hart stepped aside just about an hour after refusing to apologize for tweets that resurfaced after he was announced as Oscars host on Tuesday. In a video on Instagram, Hart said the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences gave him an ultimatum: apologize or “we’re going to have to move on and find another host.”
“I chose to pass on the apology,” Hart said. “The reason why I passed is because I’ve addressed this several times.”
…Hart has since deleted some of the anti-gay tweets, mostly dated from 2009-2011. But they had already been screen-captured and been shared online. In 2011, he wrote in a since-deleted tweet: “Yo if my son comes home & try’s 2 play with my daughters doll house I’m going 2 break it over his head & say n my voice ‘stop that’s gay.”
In an earlier post Thursday, Hart wrote on Instagram that critics should “stop being negative” about his earlier anti-gay remarks.
“I’m almost 40 years old. If you don’t believe that people change, grow, evolve? I don’t know what to tell you,” said Hart, who added, in all-caps: “I love everybody.”
Hart’s attitudes about homosexuality were also a well-known part of his stand-up act. In the 2010 special “Seriously Funny,” he said “one of my biggest fears is my son growing up and being gay.”
“Keep in mind, I’m not homophobic, I have nothing against gay people, do what you want to do, but me, being a heterosexual male, if I can prevent my son from being gay, I will,” Hart said
Does anyone else remember the time that traditionalists were laughed at for their ‘slippery slope’ argument? When we were solemnly assured that activists only wanted the recognition of rights, and they weren’t trying to push anything on anyone else?
When the question being asked was ‘how does what two guys (or girls) might do in the privacy of their own effect you?
Now that that very question is becoming a litmus test by which people are denounced and destroyed, we sure have come a very long way from those days, haven’t we?
