Entertainment celebrities constantly push a left-wing agenda.
The message is either overt or woven into their stories.
Now a Hollywood director made one “woke” comment that will turn your stomach.
A-list director James Cameron, perhaps best known for The Terminator, Aliens, and Titanic, is doing press for his sequel to the record-setting blockbuster Avatar.
The first film was a cringeworthy polemic about the dangers of climate change, and the sequel likely follows in that same vein.
But during his press tour, Cameron jumped on a different left-wing talking point.
The director went on a rant about toxic masculinity, which has been a big topic of discussion ever since the beginning of the #MeToo Movement.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
“On Titanic and the first Avatar, Cameron clashed with Fox execs over budgets and the films’ potential to earn them back. But his relationship with Disney has, so far, been a smooth one. ‘Maybe it’s still a honeymoon phase,’ Cameron says. ‘I don’t know. We’ll see. If the movie doesn’t make money, then, maybe, the honeymoon’s over.’ He cites his transparency, telling the studio early on if he feels something may shift in the schedule, and says he respects Disney’s marketing prowess. It may also be that his era of F-bomb-laden shouting matches with executives is behind him. ‘A lot of things I did earlier, I wouldn’t do — career-wise and just risks that you take as a wild, testosterone-poisoned young man,’ he says, declining to specify further. ‘I always think of [testosterone] as a toxin that you have to slowly work out of your system.’”
Cameron is literally calling masculinity toxic when he compares testosterone to a “toxin” that must be expelled.
Ironically, Cameron would probably be in favor of testosterone treatments for a woman who’s “transitioning.”
Cameron added, “I thought, ‘I’m going to work out a lot of my stuff, artistically, that I’ve gone through as a parent of five kids’…The overarching idea is, the family is the fortress. It’s our greatest weakness and our greatest strength. I thought, ‘I can write the hell out of this. I know what it is to be the a**hole dad.’”
As for Cameron’s environmentalism, he promotes plant-based diets, and ironically drives a 2013 Kio Rio because new electric vehicles have larger carbon footprints, which is true.
It takes heavy machinery to mine for the rare earth metals used to produce lithium batteries for EVs.
Cameron also addressed environmentalism in films, explaining, “You can’t hit environmental messaging over the head…People are angsty enough. We’ll be injecting this film into a marketplace in a different time. And maybe things that were over the horizon in 2009 are upon us now. Maybe it’s not entertainment anymore…We skipped from complete denial [of climate change] to fatalistic acceptance, and we missed the middle step…The filmmaker’s role is not to make it all gloom and doom anymore but to offer constructive solutions.”
Based on Cameron’s interview, the Avatar sequel seems as though it’s going to be obnoxiously on-message.
