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.

Michael Moore Lashes Out At Joe Biden For Reaching Out To ‘White Racist Redneck Votes In Michigan’

Michael Moore

So it seems that, despite the fact he’ll be casting his vote for Joe Biden in November, radical leftist filmmaker — a term that should be used very loosely — Michael Moore is not exactly a big fan of the crusty, old white fellow’s election behavior. In fact, over the weekend, Biden accepted the endorsement of former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a member of the GOP, a move which left Moore extremely disappointed and upset with the former vice president. Enough so that he actually scolded him for trying to get “white racist redneck votes in Michigan.” via Daily Wire: “The Biden campaign, in an effort to convince Flint voters to stay home on Nov 3 and lose Michigan again, happily announced & embraced the endorsement of former Gov. Rick Snyder — the man who poisoned Flint’s water. 10,000 children [with] permanent brain damage,” Michael Moore tweeted. “Countless dead. Shame!” “So the Biden campaign thought getting a few more White racist redneck votes in Michigan was more important than getting the Black vote in Flint?” he later added. “Better to embrace the mass-poisoning Republican ex-Governor than worry about ‘those Black people?’ Are u nuts? Apologize & retract NOW.” https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302276793492221953 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302305541209894913 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302314275567009794 Ever since President Donald Trump’s rousing performance at the RNC, Moore has been warning Democrats not to get complacent. In late August, he shared a poll from Michigan that had Trump besting Biden by 2 points (47% to 45%), citing it as evidence that Democrats are not sounding the alarm enough. “Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW. Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden?” Moore said on Twitter. “Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan. Last week Trump pulled within 4 pts of Biden. Now in one poll Trump is AHEAD of Biden in MI…

Terry Crews Comments On Racist Comments Made By Nick Cannon: I Told Ya So

Published

on

Actor Terry Crews is slowly, but surely, becoming a conservative hero as he continues to take the Black Lives Matter movement and the political correctness of the progressive movement, refusing to give in to the madness and hatred being spewed out on the left. Crews has stated time and again that he’s not going to hate on white people, which is really what’s going on beneath the veneer of social justice BLM hides behind. It’s a refreshing stance to see these days to be sure. Recently, actor and TV host Nick Cannon was booted from ViaCom after making anti-Semitic and anti-white comments during a radio show. Crews has now responded to those comments and he couldn’t be more right. via The Daily Wire: “We have to include this white voice, this Hispanic voice, this Asian voice. We have to include it RIGHT NOW, because if we don’t […] it’s going to slip into something we are really not prepared for,” Crews posted, quoting himself. “Terry Crews ‘THE TALK interview’ June 16th, 2020,’” he added. https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283280895403864064 In reaction to Crews’ pointed tweet, one Twitter user told the actor “no black person” will have his back: “You going so hard against Nick Cannon, but when you fall, NO BLACK PERSON will have your back. Watch.” “When I was young, I was never afraid of the KKK,” Crews responded. “It was people like you. The threats, the intimidation, discouraging free thought, and ‘the insult of acting white.’ My heart breaks because your behavior only reveals you don’t know how powerful you are.” https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283293611208183808 Just to give you a little context for how dedicated Crews is to his position and how much wisdom and truth this man has, one of his tweets from the month of June says, “Defeating White Supremacy without White people…
