News You Should Know

R.L. Stine too

R.L. Stine, the author of the scary children’s book series “Goosebumps,” has joined Roald Dahl as the latest revered author to have his books given a PC rewrite without his knowledge or permission. Dahl has the excuse of being dead, but in Stine’s case, he simply wasn’t told. He recently learned that since 2018, his publisher has made over 100 woke edits to his books in the name of “mental health,” to make the language “more inclusive” so they “don’t negatively impact a young person’s view of themselves today.” Stine insists he has never changed a word of his books (scaring kids is his mission in life), and these these edits were not shown to him. By the way, some of the vital changes they made include changing the world “plump” to “cheerful,” a boy who dismissed a book as “girls’ stuff” now just says it’s “not interesting,” and the word “crazy” was changed to “silly.” In that spirit, let me say that their attempt to make Stine’s books “not interesting” is the silliest thing I’ve ever heard; so silly, in fact, that it’s crazy. It ought to raise goosebumps on anyone who cares about protecting literature from cultural vandals. And no, I won’t soften that to protect the publishers’ mental health, since I don’t believe they have any.

The Academy Awards

The Academy Awards air this Sunday, but it’s an open question as to how many people will actually watch what used to be the movie fans’ equivalent of the Super Bowl. The combination of off-putting woke liberal lectures from hypocritical stars and nominations for movies nobody saw have killed interest and ratings, although maybe the nominations for “Top Gun: Maverick” will bring back a few viewers. How bad has Hollywood become at connecting with the audience? This should give you an idea: Recently, a small-budget, faith-based independent film called “Jesus Revolution” opened in a limited number of theaters. Breitbart reports that after just two weeks, it had quadrupled expectations and earned $30.5 million, which is $3 million more than four of the Best Picture nominees combined. It’s added another $2 million in the past few days, and by the end of its theatrical run, it will likely gross more than five Best Picture nominees combined. This is without any CGI effects and only one name star, Kelsey Grammer. Granted, $32.5 million might seem like chicken feed to some Hollywood moguls. But you’d think they might prefer making that kind of money to losing billions cranking out woke garbage like “Strange World” or “Lightyear.” Maybe there should be an Oscar for “Biggest Leftwing Activist Loser.” Unfortunately, that would be impossible to choose because there would only be spaces for five nominees.

International Women's Day

First Lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken are being razzed on Twitter for giving one of 11 “International Women of Courage Awards” on International Women’s Day to a “transgender” biological male for fighting LGBTQ discrimination in Argentina. columnist Derek Hunter tweeted, "Apparently men are a lot better at being women than women are. Step up your game, ladies.” But while I might be prejudiced, I think the best comment came from Arkansas’ superlative new Governor, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who tweeted, “It’s International Women’s Day – a good time to remember that Democrats can’t even tell you what a woman is." We used to say that behind every great man is a great woman. Now, Democrats believe that behind every great woman's dress is a man.
