Outdoor Screening Of ‘Kindergarten Cop’ Cancelled In Portland For Being ‘Pro-Cop’ Movie

Published

Well, now we know for sure that the radical leftists in this country are hellbent on taking anything and everything fun and ruining it so that there’s nothing for folks to enjoy, all in the name of completing their quest for political correctness.

The latest victim of this push is an outdoor screening of the film “Kindergarten Cop,” which was set for August 6. The screening was a special event to celebrate the movie’s 30th anniversary and filmmaking in Oregon.

However, a Portland author complained about the film, saying it makes light of the “school-to-prison pipeline.”

Here’s more from The Daily Wire:

According to Willamette Week, Portland’s NW Film Center (NWFC) decided, after discussions with “staff and community members,” that screening “Kindergarten Cop” to open their “Cinema Unbound” drive-in summer movie series at Zidell Yards would be ill-advised, given the current political climate. The 1990 movie, which was filmed in Oregon and features Schwarzenegger as a cop who goes undercover at an elementary school, will be replaced with a screening of “Good Trouble,” a documentary about late Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).

NWFC’s decision came shortly after Lois Leveen complained on Twitter about the Schwarzenegger comedy. According to her website, Leveen’s work “has appeared in the New York Times, the LA Review of Books, the Chicago Tribune, the Huffington Post, the Wall Street Journal, the Atlantic and on NPR.”

The NWFC spoke with the Willamette Week and noted that Leveen’s concerns weren’t the only ones taken into consideration, stating they go dozens of others, some from individuals in the black community who asked them to consider showing a different film.

However, they did respond directly to her tweet storm over the weekend. Here’s what she had to say:

What’s so funny about School-to-Prison pipeline? Kindergarten Cop-Out: Tell [NWFC] there’s nothing fun in cops traumatizing kids. National reckoning on overpolicing is a weird time to revive Kindergarten Cop. IRL, we are trying to end the school-to-prison pipeline. There’s nothing entertaining about the presence of police in schools, which feeds the ‘school-to-prison’ pipeline in which African American, Latinx and other kids of color are criminalized rather than educated. 5- and 6-year-olds are handcuffed and hauled off to jail routinely in this country. And this criminalizing of children increases dramatically when cops are assigned to work in schools.

“It’s true Kindergarten Cop is only a movie. So are Birth of a Nation and Gone With the Wind, but we recognize films like those are not ‘good family fun,’” Leveen added. “They are relics of how pop culture feeds racist assumptions. Because despite what the movie shows, in reality, schools don’t transform cops. Cops transform schools, and in an extremely detrimental way.”

Even though Leveen got her wish, that wasn’t enough to satisfy her. It never is with the left, something we’ve all seen play out over and over again through the last several years.

Leveen penned an email saying:

“I have been a Silver Screen members for years, and an NWFC patron even longer, and I know how seldom their screenings attract substantial numbers of BIPOC [Black, Indigenous and People of Color] audience members. When a white-dominant institution cannot honestly admit their error and insensitivity, it does not suggest they will avoid similar errors and insensitivities in the future.”

This is pure insanity. What’s scary is that not only are the inmates running the asylum, they don’t actually realize they are crazy. To them, this all makes sense. Nothing is safe and sacred from the PC police.

Save conservative media!

Biden Said He Received Full Scholarship, Graduated Top of His Law School Class — He Lied

And he plagiarized, too…

As a career politician, Joe Biden knows a thing or two about lying. Even though he has been caught telling falsehoods many, many times over, the mainstream media and his supporters still decide to look the other way. For example, here’s a quote from Joe, speaking to a reporter, while running for president in 1988: “I think I probably have a much higher IQ than you do, I suspect. I went to law school on a full academic scholarship, the only one in my — in my class to have a full academic scholarship. In the first year in law school I decided didn’t want to be in law school and ended up in the bottom two-thirds of my class, and then decided I wanted to stay, went back to law school, and in fact ended up in the top half of my class. I won the international moot-court competition. I was the outstanding student in the political science department at the end of my year. I graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school and 165 credits — I only needed 123 credits. And I’d be delighted to sit down and compare my IQ to yours if you’d like Frank.” The problem is that literally nothing in that statement is true. None of it. From The Daily Wire: It turned out that Biden did not receive a full academic scholarship, but a half scholarship based on financial need. He did not end up in the top half of his class, but near the very bottom. There is no record of him winning the moot court competition. He did not receive the outstanding student award at the University of Delaware. And he graduated with only one degree. For the record, this is Biden’s third run for POTUS (1988, 2008, 2020). After…

I Will Nominate A Woman for Supreme Court Next Week, Trump Says At North Carolina Rally

This third pick needs to be a person that will have conservatives cheering.

Donald Trump’s presidency has already been historic for a number of reasons. He will add to his legacy in the coming days, when he nominates a third person to the Supreme Court in just his first term. Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh have sided with the liberal wing of SCOTUS from time to time, so those two choices weren’t exactly home runs. Still, they definitely lean right. This third pick needs to be a person that will have conservatives cheering.

Notably, Barrett was one of the finalists when Trump was considering a replacement for Justice Anthony Kennedy, whose seat was later filled by Justice Brett Kavanaugh. According to USA Today, Judge Barbara Lagoa, 52, a recent addition to the list of potential Supreme Court nominees, is considered a “little-known” front-runner. The news agency reports that Trump briefly mentioned her during remarks to reporters on Saturday, saying that he has “heard at length” about her, and that she is “highly respected.” Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…
