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.

Texas Senate Passes Bill Banning Sex-Change Procedures for Minors

Last week, the Texas State Senate approved SB 1646, which would ban sex change procedures for minors, by an 18 to 12 vote margin.

Last week, the Texas State Senate approved SB 1646, which would ban sex change procedures for minors, by an 18 to 12 vote margin. The bill will now go to the State House before it can go to the governor’s desk. State Senator Charles Perry’s bill would define sex changes for kids as child abuse. If made into law, the state’s Child Protective Services (CPS) department would be tasked with dealing with violations. “Perry argued in floor debate that the bill was necessary to prevent children from making irreversible decisions that they may regret later, but experts say both parts of that claim are questionable,” the Texas Tribune reported. “According to Marjan Linnell, a general pediatrician, puberty suppression treatments are completely reversible and have been used for decades to delay early onset puberty. While other treatments such as hormones and surgery may cause irreversible changes, Linnell said the risks are discussed extensively with children and their parents before the procedures, which is typically only performed after puberty,” the paper added. Of course, the problem is, telling a 6-year-old about complex and possibly dangerous procedures is a waste of time since they aren’t advanced enough mentally and emotionally to make such important decisions. The bill in Texas is just one of the many bills in states across the country proposing limits on transgenderism. Not only are states trying to prevent the medical sector from dangerously affecting the health and wellbeing of children already suffering from confusion and pressures (usually from adults), but legislators are trying to limit men pretending to be women from playing sports against natural-born women.

“I am tired,” officer Kevin Dingle explained in a visit with Fox & Friends on Tuesday. His appearance came after his viral video in which he slammed anti-cop leftists. In his video, Maj. Kelvin Dingle — operation commander at the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Public Safety in Atlanta — slammed those who constantly attack the left. “I wake up every morning and kiss my family goodbye, knowing that there’s a possibility I won’t come home,” Dingle said as he recorded his video in his car. “I am tired of every time I wake up in the morning there’s someone else polarizing the fact that maybe law enforcement is just not a good thing! All of us are not bad! I am not as they are! Most of us are not! There are bad people in every career! I’m so goddamn tired! Tired! Tired!” He ends up whispering: “I’m so tired. I give everything. I give everything! I’m tired.” https://twitter.com/stillgray/status/1388692295575244800 The original TikTok video earned more than 1.6 million views as of Wednesday. In his visit with Fox & Friends, officer Dingle said that hate for the police was not always this bad. “And that day, I just, honestly, had enough,” Dingle said. “My heart was broken because of the things that I saw in just traveling home to my family, and it wasn’t always that way.” H added that motorists on the road are often “frowning at me. He added, “People are purposely doing things to get my attention. They’re flipping me off.” “This is something new,” he continued. “It’s a new attitude.” Dingle confessed that “it’s really heartbreaking to me. When I got in law enforcement 20 years ago, it was not that way. In the last two years or so, law enforcement has really, really been…
