Actress Has a Message for “White Dude” Movie Reviewers, and It’s Not Pretty

Published

on

Actress Brie Larson, who is set to make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut next year as Captain Marvel, has proven once again that the progressive poison floating around Hollywood has infected the vast majority of professionals working in the field.

Larson can’t seem to grasp the fact that movies are an art form that manages to bypass all of the differences between us as human beings through storytelling, helping us to connect with each other through our shared humanity, erasing those distinctions that often divide us.

Yet, because of liberalism and the brain eating ideology that makes up that diabolical system of belief, Larson and people like her can’t see what’s right in front of their faces.

The actress recently stated that she wants fewer “white dudes” reviewing movies.

This lack of consistency in the application of liberal principles concerning tolerance is staggering.

It seems that actress Brie Larson (“The Room”) has a difficult time grasping that reality. In fact, she thinks “white dudes” don’t understand certain films and thinks they marginalize bona fide pieces of garbage like Ava DuVernay’s social justice swansong to new age religion – “A Wrinkle In Time” – merely because they are both white and male.

Accepting the Crystal Award for Excellence in Film at the Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards on Wednesday, Larson said more women and people of color should be allowed into screenings.

“Female and underrepresented critics can’t review what they don’t see, and many are denied accreditation or access to press screenings,” she said. “So, if you are in this room, or if you know someone who is a gatekeeper, please make sure that these invites and credentials find their way to more underrepresented journalists and critics, many of whom are freelancers.”

“Am I saying that I hate white dudes? No, I’m not,” she said. “But what I am saying is if you make a movie that is a love letter to a woman of color, there is an insanely low chance that a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie and review your movie… It really sucks that reviews matter, but reviews matter.”

“I don’t need a white dude to tell me what didn’t work for him in ‘A Wrinkle In Time.’ It wasn’t made for him,” she said to a round of applause. “I want to know what that film meant to women of color, to biracial women, to teen women of color, to teens that are biracial. And, for the third time, I don’t hate white dudes. These are just facts. These are not my feelings.”

It’s mind-blowing that Larson thinks the reason this film adaptation wasn’t successful is because of white guys giving it bad reviews. This is about as stupid as it gets, but then again, the vast majority of the folks working in Hollywood aren’t known for their high level of intelligence.

The reason “A Wrinkle in Time” did so poorly was because they stripped the movie of its Christian themes, changing it into a neutral tale that promoted paganism and humanism. Everything that made the story special was removed.

People didn’t like it because it was dull, lifeless, and did not capture the spirit of the book.

Marvel’s “Black Panther” and the smashing success it earned both critically and at the box office is proof positive the world enjoys black led entertainment. The truth is, “A Wrinkle in Time” was just a bad movie.

Time to move on.

BLM Activists Suggests Waukesha Parade Massacre is Beginning of a ‘Revolution’

The left just cannot help themselves when it comes to promoting violence.

Published

on

As with any tragedy that occurs here in the United States, there are political and cultural organizations and individuals looking to spin the Waukesha Christmas parade massacre into something that selfishly behooves their cause, and these suggestions are growing more offensive by the day.

The latest allegation comes from a self-proclaimed “militant” with the Black Lives Matter movement, who believes that the event may be the start of something much larger.

A Milwaukee Black Lives Matter activist said the Christmas parade attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin, appears to signal “the revolution” may have begun.

“I don’t know. Now we’ll have to wait and see because they do have somebody in custody. We may have to wait and see what they say about why this happened,” Vaun Mayes said on Facebook Live on Monday. “But it sounds possible that the revolution has started in Wisconsin. It started with this Christmas parade.”

Mayes is a well-known activist in Milwaukee. He describes himself as a “Battle rapper, Community activist, Songwriter, Tattoo artist, Militant,” in his Twitter bio, which is accompanied by various hashtags, including “#BlackLivesMatter,” “#BlackLoveMatters” and “#RBG.”

Mayes would go on to parrot a largely-condemned suggestion that the attack was meant as revenge for the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial.

“I said I wasn’t going to speak on no rumors. Y’all are repeating some of the stuff that, you know, that has come up. And I can tell you that the initial person who reached out to me said that they believe that this has to do with the verdict, and so I made an assumption of which side it would be from, but I don’t know,” he added in the video, referring to the not-guilty verdict of Kyle Rittenhouse. The video was filmed at the scene of the parade attack.

These comments speak to a larger issue here in the US, in which many on the left side of the aisle are continuing to turn toward violent rhetoric, and away from the principles of liberty and justice for all.

Ukraine Accuses Russians of Plotting Coup for Next Week

The highly specific threat was made public just hours ago.

Published

on

For years now, Russia has been bullying the world.  From weapons tests to forced annexations to being the likely cause of “Havana Syndrome”, there is little doubt that Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin cronies are playing the role of the global villain without even the slightest amount of regret.

And, after spending years attempting to force Ukraine back into Russian control, the small nation’s President is now suggesting that some miscreants from Moscow are planning to stage a coup in his country.

Russia has denied any involvement after Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said Friday that an attempted coup d’etat is being planned in his country to take place next week.

Zelenskyy told reporters that Ukraine had uncovered a plot for an attempted coup and that Ukrainians and Russians were involved, The Washington Post reported. While he also spoke of a threat of military escalation from Russia, he fell short of accusing the Kremlin of an involvement in the planned coup, according to Reuters.

The Ukrainian President was not subtle in his statement, either.

“We have challenges not only from the Russian Federation and possible escalation – we have big internal challenges. I received information that a coup d’etat will take place in our country on Dec. 1-2,” Zelenskyy said, adding that his country was prepared for any escalation, Reuters reported.

While Putin and the Russians continue to deny their involvement, his reputation for mischief makes it all that much harder to take his rebukes seriously.
