The business of entertaining has long been bathed in an ethereal mix of duplicity and defamation whereby the power brokers in Hollywood can wrongly accuse conservative Americans of harboring the very prejudices that apparently burden their own minds and hearts. When called on it, they can claim sanctuary under the pretext of "It's just showbiz. It's not real." Talk about eating your cake and having it too. (Reference Dan Quayle vs. Murphy Brown here.)
The Sony hack merely validates the concerns that conservatives have been voicing about the Left's monopoly in entertainment. The Left has had the power to sway national opinions against conservative values and has had no checks or balances in place to keep them honest. It's nothing short of artistic tyranny, but short-lived has been the conservative celebration over exposed progressivist intolerance because the North Korean hackers could not be content with mere humiliation. They had to wreck this one glorious moment of exoneration with egoistic chest thumping and threats of violence.
To that end, the vainglory displayed by North Korean hackers offers demonstrable proof that it is so much harder to be conservative than liberal…because conservatives have to live by principles when we would much rather watch the Left steep in the brine of their own corruption until they pickle. Alas, we can't sit back and enjoy the show. Instead, we'll have to provide a united front in the defense of free speech over what may be the dumbest movie of all time.
