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

Published

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.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Twitter Blacklists Investigative Journalist After CNN Exposé

Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.

The mainstream media really doesn’t like to lose.  In fact, much of their thirst for power over their rivals is simply so that they can continue to bully us into watching. And with so many organizations completely aware of how this horrible system is set up, outlets with similar world views tend to look out for one another – particularly when it comes to attack from the other side of the media spectrum. Americans on Friday were beginning to accuse Twitter of doing just that. Critics accused Twitter Thursday of banning Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe from its platform over the right-wing guerrilla news outlet’s damning exposé of CNN. Project Veritas relaunched its #ExposeCNN campaign this week by sharing footage of CNN technical director Charles Chester revealing the liberal network’s dirty laundry. In the footage, Chester claimed that CNN’s “focus” during the 2020 election campaign was to “get rid of” President Trump, that the network hyped its coronavirus coverage for “gangbuster” ratings, and that it aims to “help” Black Lives Matter. On Thursday, O’Keefe’s Twitter account, which was sharing Project Veritas’ reporting, was permanently suspended over alleged use of “fake accounts.” “As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News. This would be akin to a publisher retweeting a post that one of their authors had written, advertising the book that they collaborated on. Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.
