After actor Will Smith slapped comedian Chris Rock for making a joke about Smith’s wife during the Academy Awards, total leftism went on full insane display around social media.
More excuses and justifications for the cowardly criminal act were posted, almost exceeding the number given by the propaganda media for one of President Biden’s multi-gaffe speeches.
There is no justification for assaulting another person because of something said to put the incident in context. Smith was wrong, period. The only area left for debate is what consequences Smith should face.
Baseball legend Pete Rose was banned from baseball in 1989 for betting on sports while managing the Cincinnati Reds. That was the standard, and although many fans disagreed with the punishment, the sanction has held up all these years.
Also, Rose is ineligible to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame, an honor that his career stats clearly show.
Rose didn’t have just one extraordinary year; he had a great career. Rose had a batting average of 303, 4,256 hits, 160 home runs. He won 2 Gold Glove awards, 1 MVP award, the Rookie of the Year award, 1 Silver Slugger award, 1 World Series MVP award, and 3 World Series. He didn’t assault anyone, and he was banned for life.
In the humble opinion of TDH, Smith should be able to keep his Oscar since he earned it before the incident, but he should be ousted from the Academy.
Rick Hayes lives in the epicenter of liberal land where reality and truth will never encounter a welcome mat.
An award-winning writer and photographer, with over twenty years of professional experience in both fields, Hayes started his journalism adventure after a successful, eye-opening career as a Banker in Wall Street. Although he spent his early work life surrounded by custom made shirts, expensive ties and the shiniest of shoes, Hayes was an accomplished singer, cutting a few records with a local band and appearing on one of the first cable shows.
Working for a weekly New York paper, in one of the most politically corrupt areas in the State, he began investing his time trying to understand the nature of corruption.
