Pulitzer Winner Slams Woke Hollywood: ‘DEI Is Garbage!’

Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet recently delivered a scathing critique of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) standards that have become pervasive in his industry and beyond. During an interview at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, Mamet characterized DEI as “garbage” and “fascist totalitarianism.” He expressed frustration with the new inclusion standards imposed by institutions like the Academy of Motion Pictures, which he sees as overly intrusive and restrictive.

Mamet’s memoir, “Everywhere an Oink, Oink,” delves into his life journey from a background influenced by communism to his current political stance, including his support for former President Donald Trump. He criticized the notion that films must meet specific DEI criteria to be considered for awards, lamenting the rigid checkboxes and quotas that now dictate artistic recognition.

In his blunt style, Mamet referred to those enforcing DEI standards as “diversity capos” and “diversity commissars,” highlighting his disdain for what he perceives as an overbearing and politically motivated agenda. He argued that the film industry should focus on creativity and storytelling rather than being preoccupied with enforcing social and political ideologies.

While acknowledging historical discrimination in Hollywood, Mamet questioned the effectiveness and necessity of DEI mandates, suggesting that such initiatives are more about optics than genuine progress. He emphasized that ageism and changing industry dynamics, rather than his political views, have contributed to his reduced prominence in recent years.

Mamet’s remarks reflect broader conservative criticisms of DEI initiatives, particularly within artistic and entertainment circles, where concerns about artistic freedom, meritocracy, and ideological coercion have become prominent topics of debate.
