Last night, during the low-ratings, woke, self-congratulatory Academy Awards show, the host, Chris Rock, became an unsuspecting victim of violence at the hands of actor Will Smith, who plays a tough guy for a living. The comedian, who makes jokes for a living, made a joke about Jada Pinkett-Smith looking like GI-Jane, a character played by Demi Moore who shaved her head for the role. Smith’s wife has alopecia, a condition that causes her hair to fall out.
When Rock told the joke, Will Smith could be seen laughing, but as the camera panned to his frequently scowling wife, it appeared she didn’t find the humor in Rock’s joke. Suddenly, as though something snapped, Will Smith jumped from his seat, walked up to the stage, and assaulted the comedian. Rock returned to his seat, where he began to shout at the comedian, who was doing his best to maintain his composure. “Keep my wife’s name out of your f**king mouth!” the classless Smith shouted on LIVE national TV and then repeated for good measure.

After the violent incident, Smith, who doesn’t appear to be rowing with both oars, was immediately comforted by fellow actors Denzel Washington, Tyler Perry, and Bradley Cooper.
The video below shows what it looks like when woke Hollywood comes together to help a fellow actor who just assaulted a comedian for hurting his feelings.

Actor Bradley Cooper consoles Will Smith moments before he appears on stage to accept his award for “best actor.”
After the commercial break, Will Smith and his radical wife Jada Pinkett Smith, who have publicly declared they have an open marriage that allows them to have sexual relations with other people, both appeared to have put the violent incident behind them as they laughed about it from their seats.

Only moments after assaulting the Rock, Will Smith was given a standing ovation by the crowd for winning an award. Smith, who recently announced that he and his wife have an “open marriage” that allows them to have sexual relations with other people, immediately explained how the character he won the “best actor” award for portraying “was a fierce defender of his family.”
Not the Bee explains: There are few more potent and enduring symbols of emasculated weakness—and of bad husbandship—than a man standing by while other guys hook up with his wife and make a mockery of their wedding vows.
We should note that Will Smith presumably hooks up with women in his own right, but of course, that simply degrades his own personal integrity even further—if you can’t defend your wife and your marriage from the impulses and the ego of your own sexual appetites, you’re not much of a man or a husband, whatever else you may be.
These are, of course, the fruits of the sexual revolution: Disorder and chaos, disgust and decay. This has been known for decades. When you move away from the square-and-sober arrangement of real, actual marriage in favor of sexual licentiousness and mayhem and gluttony, it’s never a good show.
And so, at the Oscars this year, we saw in Will Smith the curious, poisonous melding of the old order and the new, a mix of savage braggadocio and pathetic effeteness: a man striking another man for joking about his wife on stage while he allows numerous other men to make a far more sickening joke of his wife every other day of the year.
Will Smith feeling the need to violently defend his wife’s dignity is, in a certain context, an admirable trait: Every man should be prepared to do so for his own wife under the right circumstances. That he did so while also tolerating the obscenity of an “open marriage” exposes the incident for the meaningless, useless gesture it was.
Smith then told the crowd that he was “overwhelmed by what God has called on me to do and be in this world.” He also told the woke crowd he was being called on to “love people and to protect people,” adding “that to do what we do, you gotta be able to take abuse, you gotta be able to have people talk crazy to you. You’ve gotta be able to have people talk crazy to you and disrespect you, and you gotta smile and pretend that that’s okay.” He also told the mostly god-less crowd that Denzel Washington, a devoted Christian, told him to “be careful” because “at your highest moment, that’s when the devil comes for you.”
Wait, they just let him stay at the show and win an award and justify what he did in his speech? Can you imagine if Will Smith was a white guy? Twitter would be all “if he were black they would’ve shot him. This is white privilege.” pic.twitter.com/OTnYhz7kjE

Across America, people are asking why Smith was not arrested and charged with assault like any other citizen would have been? Instead, as Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton points out, he was given a standing ovation by Hollywood elitists.

“Fake Joe Biden” nailed it with his comment about Chris Rock being a COMEDIAN and that Smith should have been arrested and charged with assault. Instead, he was coddled by fellow actors and given a standing ovation.
Chris Rock is a comedian. What the f*ck is wrong with you fascist motherf*ckers. He can literally make any joke he wants to about anyone he wants to without fear of being assaulted. That is not negotiable. Arrest Will Smith. And charge him with assault.
