Before Virtue-Signaling Was A Thing

"I don’t know if I should present this award, on behalf of all the cowboys shot in all the John Ford Westerns over the years," Eastwood joked."

 

Poking fun at virtue-signaling before virtue-signaling was the Law of the Land.

 

The controversial remark occurred during a 1973 Academy Awards ceremony

 

Quote

Actor and director Clint Eastwood has been targeted by "cancel culture" on social media this week over a clip from a 1970s awards show.

The clip in question comes from the 1973 Academy Awards in which actor Marlon Brando famously refused to accept his award for best actor in "The Godfather" and instead sent a Native American activist on stage to lament Hollywood’s treatment of American Indians by the film industry.

Clint is the actor the Left loves to hate the most. Especially because he never quits, never gives in, and keeps making movies at 91. And they keep selling.

Let’s not forget Clint backed Bloomberg in this last POTUS election. He flip flops all the time!
