Twitter debate: Should conservatives watch the Oscars?


It’s no secret that Hollywood leans strongly to the left. Conservative actors, directors, and producers are few and far between.

The Oscars is a group of self congratulatory morons in a room thanking no one but themselves & bashing conservatives. All the stupid hurts.

Because watching spoiled turd leftists kiss each other’s asses while mocking conservatives is ‘entertainment’ #Oscars

Ahhh Hollywood… Thank You for pissing off conservatives for many many decades =) #Oscars

How many of the intelligent elite tonight at the #oscars are going to dust off their Sarah Palin jokes like they were funny the 1st time?

— Calvin Hernandez (@C_H813) February 24, 2013

Maybe someone at the Oscars will be courageous enough to make fun of Sarah Palin in front of a bunch of leftwing hacks

Understandably, some Twitter conservatives refuse to watch:

Why are Patriot Conservatives watching and tweeting about Obama loving Hollywood #oscars now? Other shit is on ya know.

The Oscars are on 2nite. Most of these r the people who scorn traditional marriage, mock Christianity & despise conservatives. #notwatching

Dana Loesch, on the other hand, argues that conservatives must engage popular culture:

To the people admonishing me for watching the Oscars, this is why our side loses the culture war.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 25, 2013

No people. We lose because we refuse to PARTICIPATE.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 25, 2013

We refuse to participate thus forfeit any chance to effect change within. The entire point. And yet we still complain.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 25, 2013

Also people think I’m limited to talking about the Oscars and couldn’t possibly be using the Oscars it to make a larger point. Crazy talk!

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 25, 2013

The idea that if we ignore it, instead of engage and change, that it will go away is silly. We’ve done that for generations, has it worked?

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 25, 2013

Thankful for many on our side who work in Hollywood and fearlessly engage — and work to change perspectives from the inside.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 25, 2013

If more conservatives participated in culture, engaged, and approached things from a marketing standpoint, we’d be a force.

— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) February 25, 2013

Loesch retweeted these tweets:

If you really want my view on the Oscars, just look up @dloesch‘s tweets and understand just how important participation is.

— Brandon Morse (@CnservativePunk) February 25, 2013

@dloesch Agree. It doesn’t matter how good, right, or factually effective your message is,… If it isn’t cool with culture they #TuneOut
