After criticism over Oscar nominations, the Academy sets a goal to become less male and less white https://t.co/nD9yqj7bzS— The New York Times (@nytimes) January 23, 2016
Purging white men. Hmm. Sounds familiar.
Personally, I reckon that John Wayne should have been nominated for Best Actor eight times, instead of the two acting nominations (and one Oscar) he actually received. But he didn’t throw tantrums, and demand quota nominations and awards based on his being the most popular actor ever, and one of most dramatically powerful.
What’s happening here? From circa 1920-1960, American culture was the greatest the world had seen since ancient Greece. But starting around 1960, our brightest creative lights began to dim. The same period saw the rise of the Red and the Black. The Left used “anti-anti-Communism” and the so-called Civil Rights movement to take over Hollywood, and the country.
Of course, the struggle between dark and light had begun long before that in Tinseltown. The 1920s and 1930s saw the rise of Communism, with a capital “C”—capitalized because in those days many reds joined the Party.)
Like most Communists, the Hollywood Reds had a dream: to steal all of the private property and assets that most Americans had killed themselves earning; slaughter millions; and install a permanent, totalitarian dictatorship.
FDR was a formidable figure: a statist power-monger; a father-figure for millions during the Great Depression; and a resolute commander-in-chief. But with the death of Roosevelt and war’s end, millions of Americans were fed up with the erosion of the liberty that had been their birthright. They wanted to rout the reds!
The most effective political spokesmen for the American people against the red menace was Sen. Joseph McCarthy. CBS’ Edward R. Murrow is the patron saint of Leftist journalistic hacks across America for his inventive demolition of McCarthy on See It Now through means such as showing clips of the senator picking his nose. (The MSM is seeking to do the same with Donald Trump, but the internet and social have broken its monopoly power.)
Meanwhile, postwar Hollywood leftists launched two types of propaganda, or “message,” movies.
John Wayne and producer-director Howard Hawks would call the classic Western Rio Bravo (1959) their answer to High Noon. But anti-Communist films were few and far between, while anti-anti-Communist pictures—often excellent—flourish to this day: The Sweet Smell of Success (1957), Spartacus (1960), Inherit the Wind (1960), Seven Days in May (1964), Fail Safe (1964!), Dr. Strangelove (1964!), The Way We Were (1973), The Parallax View (1974), All the President’s Men (1976), The Front (1976), JFK (1991), Good Night and Good Luck (2005), The Company You Keep (2012), etc.
In their anti-anti-Communist propaganda pictures, the Hollywood Left warned of the supposed danger posed by the paranoid Left’s “Goldsteins”—interchangeable, conspiratorial (!) “fascists,” as represented variously by Joe McCarthy, Walter Winchell, Gen. Edwin Walker, Gen. Curtis LeMay, Barry Goldwater, President Richard Nixon, et al., who sought to destroy liberty (hah!), through imposing a dictatorship, and even causing World War III.
Around 1960, the Hollywood Left created a related movie genre:
Poitier’s silver screen persona was a doppelgänger of another contemporary fictional character: Martin Luther King Jr. King’s public persona was of a brilliant intellectual and saintly preacher who only sought to achieve race-blind equality for all Americans. The real King—a whore-mongering, plagiarizing, intellectual nullity and traitor who mouthed all-American platitudes, while seeking to plunge us into racial socialism was himself playing a role that was as fictional as the ones played by Poitier.
After the World War II, Hollywood patriots formed their own organization to rout the reds: the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals. The MPA, as it came to be known, had its own roster of Hollywood heavyweights: studio head Walt Disney; actors Clark Gable, Robert Taylor, Gary Cooper, Adolphe Menjou, John Wayne, et al.; directors Cecil B. DeMille, Clarence Brown, Sam Wood and Leo McCarey; writers John Lee Mahin, Borden Chase, Morrie Ryskind and James Edward Grant; and its most aggressive, obnoxious, loveable/hateable member, one Ward Bond—the brilliant, hard-drinking, prank-pulling character actor whom liberal movie historian Scott Eyman called the “self-appointed Inspector Javert” of the Hollywood Right. (John Wayne, the Life and Legend, 2014).
The MPA and some independent, Hollywood anti-Communists (e.g., Robert Montgomery), staved off a Communist takeover of Hollywood’s craft unions.
But the Hollywood Left ultimately prevailed. The main reasons were:
A bloodthirsty mob in the new Birth of a NationSince black supremacists and their Leftists white allies have imposed the modern institutionalized anti-white discrimination I have called “Jim Snow”, they no longer see the need for pussy-footing around with Magic Negroes. They have developed a new form of race movie, the anti-white “snuff” film. In Robert Rodriguez’ Machete (2010), Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained (2012—pictured right), and Nate Parker’s Birth of a Nation (2016), non-whites engage in the mass slaughter of whites, to thunderous applause from … deracinated whites!
Unlike the fantasies of the Magic Negro movies, anti-white “snuff” films are harbingers of their supporters’ hoped-for Holocaust.
Which brings us back to this year’s Academy Awards.
If Academy members who were part of the American Nazi Party had threatened to boycott the proceedings, they would simply have been thrown out of the Academy. Actually, the analogy I just offered is unfair to real American Nazis who have no history of slaughtering people—unlike its black counterpart the Nation of Islam.
Spike Lee, and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, are all supporters of, and may well be members of the murderous Nation of Islam. (I reached out to the three, but was rebuffed by their various agents, publicists, and flunkies.)
The NOI, founded in 1931, has no genuine connection to Islam. Both ideologies overlap only in their ultra-violence and bans on pork. The NOI’s entire basis is its pursuit of the genocide of all whites.
Since 1963, the NOI has slaughtered anywhere from 85-285 whites across the country, in addition to maiming and raping white victims it failed to murder.
On July 30 of last year Louis Farrakhan called for raising an army of 10,000 black men, for slaughtering whites [Feds: Farrakhan's anti-white rant 'protected speech', by Leo Hohmann, WND, August 9, 2015]
Spike Lee has been an NOI propagandist since at least 2006, when he directed an HBO “documentary” on Hurricane Katrina, When the Levees Broke, in which he promoted Farrakhan’s blood libel that the federal government had blown up the levees in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward to slaughter the section’s predominantly black residents. However, Lee never told viewers that Farrakhan was the source of his paranoid claim.
Jada Pinkett Smith is an attractive black actress who, in 1994, was quoted by Newsweek as ludicrously saying that she was better looking than any white woman. If any white actress had said that, even if true, she would have been finished. However, following the logic of “Jim Snow,” Pinkett Smith’s in-your-face racial rhetoric if anything helped her career.
Last year, she and Will Smith reportedly gave $150,000 to the NOI, for Farrakhan’s extortionist “Justice Or Else” rally. [Will Smith Gets Flak for Reported $150,000 Donation to Nation of Islam, By Victor Fiorillo, Phillymag, September 16, 2015]
It may seem like poetic justice for so many white Hollywood Leftists to get their comeuppance by being racially purged from the Academy. But remember such schadenfreude will come at the cost of yet another American institution submitting to Jim Snow.
Americans can respond to the Red and the Black (and the NOI) by protesting, refusing to watch the Oscars broadcast—and most importantly, by boycotting Hollywood’s ant-white trash.
