Spike Lee Gets Raked Over The Coals by Director Boots Riley. The Reason Why is Shameful.

Published

on

Infamous director Spike Lee, who just recently directed “BlacKKKlansman” is being criticized by fellow film director Boots Riley for portraying police officers in a positive light in the movie.

Yes, this is the type of culture we live in now. The good guys are now the bad guys simply because the left needs some sort of boogeyman they can pin the blame for racism on and make it appear like they care about the issue. In reality, these folks are using individuals like Riley to keep them in power, oppressing them right under their noses and they don’t see it.

Fresh off his success among critics (not so much at the box office or among viewers) for his film about a black telemarketer’s discovery of the secret to success (“white voice”) which leads him to uncovering a capitalist plot to enslave people, director Boots Riley penned a three-page letter denouncing Lee for producing “a made up story in which the false parts of it try to make a cop the protagonist in the fight against racist oppression.”

Riley begins by underscoring that he deeply respects Lee and even crediting the director for inspiring him to go to film school. That said, he then explains why believes Lee has sold out to police.

“First, BlackkKlansman is not a true story,” he writes. “A story not being ‘true’ is not necessarily a problem for me. I have no interest in telling them myself at this time, but this is being pushed as a true story and it is precisely its untrue parts that are making a cop into a hero against racism.”

“It’s a made up story in which the false parts of it try to make a cop the protagonist in the fight against racist oppression,” he writes. “It’s being put [out] while Black Lives Matter is a discussion, and this is not coincidental. There is a viewpoint behind it.”

The real-life officer at the center of the story, Ron Stallworth (played by John David Washington), gave his account of his infiltration of the KKK in his 2014 memoir “Black Klansman.” In the film, his partner, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver) helps him to get inside.

Riley has accused Stallworth of “sabotaging” a “black radical organization” back in the late 1970s.

“The real Ron Stallworth infiltrated a Black radical organization for 3 years … where he did what all papers from the FBI’s Counter Intelligence Program (Cointelpro) that were found through the freedom of information act tell us he did—sabotage a Black radical organization whose intent had to do with at the very least fighting racist oppression,” says Riley.

“Without the made up stuff and with what we know of the actual history of police infiltration into radical groups, and how they infiltrated and directed White Supremacist organizations to attack those groups, Ron Stallworth is the villain. For Spike to come out with a movie where story points are fabricated in order to make a Black cop and his counterparts look like allies in the fight against racism is really disappointing, to put it very mildly.”

This is identity politics at its finest, being played out by a radical member of the leftist Hollywood crowd. They don’t want art. They want propaganda. It’s sad and tragic that this is what the film industry has become these days, which is to say, a platform for the spewing forth of violent ideas that are packaged as progressive, but in reality, hinder said progress.

Being a cop is a tough job, and thanks to guys like Riley, that jog gets tougher and more dangerous every day.

Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…

Check Out This List Of Celebrities Who Have Promised To Leave America If Trump Wins

Published

During the last election cycle in 2016, a number of famous folks in a wide range of industries were so distraught by the idea of a President Donald Trump that they vowed to flee from the country if he took home a victory over Hillary Clinton. Fast forward four years later, and basically, none of those people went anywhere. You know why? Because there is no other country on the planet where they can make the obscene amounts of money they pull down for playing music or starring in films, while also not being taxed into oblivion. It’s all just blustering. You’d think they’d be quiet about that kind of thing this go around, knowing that none of us in the real world believe their childish ranting. But, here we are, in 2020, and celebrities are once again making promises they do not intend to keep. via Daily Wire: Bruce Springsteen The Boss said he’d quit the U.S. and just might move to Australia if Trump wins reelection on Nov. 3. “I would consider that,” he said Oct. 14 during a virtual chat with Australian press, according to The Daily Mail. “I love Australia,” he said. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.” The Boss also went on to predict without a doubt that President Trump would lose on Tuesday, and that if he’s wrong he’ll “see you on the next plane.” Tommy Lee, drummer for Motley Crue said he finds America “embarrassing” and thinks that folks in Europe mock us and said if Trump wins he’s “out of here.” Good riddance. “Dude, I swear to God if that happens, then I’m coming over to…
