Black singer/songwriter Joy Villa courageously took the red carpet at the Grammy awards last night in a stunning gown to make a political statement that was opposite of what we’ve seen at such venues recently. It was brave, considering how the vicious antagonists on the left are, as she quickly realized shortly after stepping out in front of her hateful fellow musicians. However, as much as her “Make America Great Again” dress made them mad, what she just did today infuriated them far more than the dress did.
Villa was a stunning contradiction of what liberals have been claiming about President Trump for months — that he’s racist, a misogynist, and that the black community and women despise him for these alleged qualities. As a black woman, she perfectly disproved both ridiculous claims in one move, wearing the dress with his logo on the front and his name emblazoned on the back, but hid one key detail out of sight until it was revealed this morning — anger her detractors all over again in the most perfect way possible.
There was a secret to her dress that was as big of a statement as the one she made on the red carpet, which everyone missed in their hateful tirade against her. A side statement was made in who designed the incredible gown, that only added to the political message she shared on the glamorous awards show stage. At the height of the debate against Trump’s travel ban, border wall, and massive crackdown on immigration, a Filipino immigrant who is a big Trump supporter was the designer of this patriotic ensemble.
“It’s more so about love,” the dress designer Andre Soriano told the Hollywood Reporter. “We all live on this planet. I’ve never been in the political arena. However, it’s just so crazy that people are getting beat up because they voted for Trump, or this and that, someone wants to bomb the White House. I am an American, I moved here from the Philippines, and I highly believed in the trueness of what this country can bring. It’s about bringing people together, that’s the message.”
Spoken like a true American who has seen both sides of freedom and respects the opportunities our country has afforded her after she came here the right way and respects the honor of being a U.S. citizen. That’s for more than what whiney liberals in Hollywood leading a privileged life could say, who feel that it’s there place to preach against our president from any stage given them.
“There are a lot of people that are in power that really misconstrued what this country stands for,” Soriano said, according to BizPacReview. “I love this country. I’m from the Philippine islands, I am a proud American. I really love this country. I am a minority, Joy is black. America is about immigrants,” she concluded.
In a twist of poetic justice, some of the people who are Trump’s biggest detractors and loudest in speaking out against him, are the ones who inspired Soriano to make this dress and huge statement of her own.
“I heard that somebody wanted to bomb the White House. And then I saw the Women’s March. … Joy Villa is all about love with her music. I’m like, ‘ Joy, We have to make a statement on what is right for our country, of what we believe in, for the Constitution.'”
Only in a country led by true American and person for the people, could an immigrant and black woman join forces to make this powerful statement together. Conservatives gave them this voice and liberals are trying to shut them up, despite claiming to be advocates for women and minorities. Finally, an awards show with a positive political message and the perfect people brave enough to stand up and make it.
