Critic: “Sixteen Candles” Is a Cinematic Hate-Crime

Posted by V the K at 9:04 am - November 25, 2015.
Filed under: Pop Culture

This might be satire, but satire looks an awful lot like stuff Progressives actually believe, these days. Apparently, the Eighties-Era John Hughes movie “Sixteen Candles” is racist and promotes date rape. Thus, it must be censored and banned.

The racism and sexism in Hughes’ movie is so over-the-top I have to hope any teens watching it today would view it as a shocking, old-timey artifact. Perhaps most glaringly, there’s Long Duk Dong (Gedde Watanabe), the Chinese foreign exchange student whose every mention is accompanied by the sound of a gong.

I stand by my prediction that a day will come when all pre-Obama film and television will be censored and banned as “culturally insensitive” and subversive. Here’s a few other things that might be banned.

  • Some Like It Hot -Classic Comedy, offensive to transgendereds, celebrates alcohol abuse, depicts violent gun play, and furthers the patriarchal narrative that women want to get married to men.
  • The Wizard of Oz - Offensively and derisively portrays little people and Wiccan-Americans.
  • Seven Samurai and all other Akira Kurosawa films – Because they encourage other directors to culturally appropriate them.
  • ‘Roots’ – Depictions of slavery may be traumatic or trigeering to African-Americans
  • Bosom Buddies - Tom Hanks small screen debut is offensive to the transgendereds.
  • Die Hard - Promotes the offensive ‘Good Guy with a Gun’ myth that liberals despise; also portrays Government authority figures as less competent than individuals with initiative.
  • All episodes of M*A*S*H - Hawkeye was a serial sexual harasser, the show portrays Asians as violent people who don’t speak English very well, depicts Middle-Eastern transvestites as mentally unstable and dishonest, and to cap it all off, early seasons featured an African-American character called ‘Spear-Chucker.”
  • Also, White Chicks, for reasons that should be obvious.


New Star Trek Series Promises Many, Many Lectures on Political Correctness

Posted by V the K at 7:52 am - November 3, 2015.
Filed under: Political Correctness,Pop Culture

CBS is launching a new Star Trek series in 2017, which they promise will be “exploring the dramatic contemporary themes that have been a signature of the franchise since its inception in 1966.”

Oy vey.

Let’s face it, many of the worst Star Trek episodes ever were when they took on contemporary social issues. Frank Gorshin made up like a black-and-white cookie to ham-fist the point that “Racism is bad” in the original Star Trek, for example. Or on Star Trek: The Next Generation, when — in a tortured analogy to Global Warming – Star Fleet ordered its starships to slow down because Warp Speed was destroying the universe. By the end of Star Trek: Voyager, things had gotten so silly that we were treated to multiple episodes demanding equal rights for holograms; that’s akin to saying the characters of ‘Hogan’s Heroes’ and ‘The Brady Bunch’ should be treated like real people and given voting rights.

Sometimes, the social justice episodes were so inept, they ended making the opposite of the point they intended. The Next Generation’s single most boringest episode ever, “The Outcast“, was an hour-long lecture on LGBT issues, that, oddly enough, ended with the “homosexual” alien being cured through psychological treatment. A similar misfire was Voyager’s single-payer health care propaganda piece, “Critical Care,” in which a state-run medical system gave the rich and elite top-shelf treatment while letting the poor suffer and die. This was supposed to get us to embrace Hillarycare?

Of course, it’s a new era, now. So, I guess, we can look forward (teeth-gritted, stomach knotted) to new Star Trek episodes taking on contemporary 21st Century social issues (ripped from the headlines, like ‘Law and Order’).

  • Tired of being beamed into dangerous situations  as decoys for the senior officers, the crew of the Enterprise forms a #RedShirtLivesMatter movement and burns down major parts of the ship in protest.
  • The New Transgender Commandant decides to take on the Rape Culture at Star Fleet Academy by having all male cadets implanted with devices in their heads that explode unless they ask for consent every two minutes. Feminists are still not happy.
  • A Bajoran refuses to make a Rokeg Blood Pie for use in a Klingon ritual, citing deeply held religious beliefs. His business is confiscated and he is sentenced to re-education treatments to cure his intolerance. Finally, to appease the outraged Klingons, he is eaten alive by Tribbles.
  • The Federation enters into a ill-advised Treaty to appease a hostile alien species, conceding them virtually everything they want in order to secure peace. The Treaty ultimately emboldens the enemy leading to the most destructive war in Federation History. Oh, wait, they already did that.

Maybe the New Star Trek series will be okay. If they use the cast from Firefly. And set it in the Firefly universe, and hire the writers from Firefly. And call it ‘Firefly.’

The Democrats’ Propagandists

First, CBS created a program whose heroine is a female Secretary of State, just as a Democrat former Secretary of State starts running for president. Coincidence, yeah, sure.

Now, NBC is reportedly developing a TV series based on Democrat Heroine/Abortion-fanatic/failed Democrat candidate for Governor of Texas Wendy Davis.

Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator who, after losing the Texas governor’s race, gets her world turned upside down. In the vein of The Good Wife, while she pieces her pride back together, she goes to work in the law firm of her best friend — a black male Republican — and discovers that with no political future to protect, she can unshackle her inner badass.

Why Kermit Ditched Miss Piggy

Posted by V the K at 8:39 am - September 2, 2015.
Filed under: Pop Culture

In a culture that is driven by make-believe (“Caitlyn Jenner is a woman!” “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot!” “Republicans are conservative.”), it’s only natural that the break-up of two make-believe characters would be treated like an actual news story.

A story in People magazine had said Kermit the Frog wasted no time moving on from his breakup with longtime girlfriend Miss Piggy and was now dating an ABC marketer named Denise.

Not true, says Kermit. They’re just “friends.”

Let’s be honest, Miss Piggy has always been completely self-centered, high-maintenance, manipulative, and at times downright abusive; a typical 21st Century feminist. That’s probably why the feminists gave her an award. She openly flirts with other men in front of him and just expects Kermit to take it.

And basically, Kermit got tired of dealing with her sh-t.

Kind of plays into the social zeitgeist, or whatever. “Empowered” women have become so unbearable that men are not just fleeing marriage, but relationships with women entirely.

At the end of the day, Kermit and Miss Piggy are inanimate pieces of felt and stuffing. Pretending they are real people makes about as much sense as pretending Trayvon Martin was an innocent schoolboy gunned down by a white racist.

Caitlyn Jenner’s Show Going About as Well as Michael Sam’s Football Career

It is almost always gratifying to watch something that was hyped ridiculously go down in flames.

The Caitlyn Jenner reality series lost more than half of its premiere haul on Sunday night, per live-plus-same-day ratings. The episode averaged 1.3 million viewers, down from 2.7 million viewers the week prior.

America isn’t nearly as obsessed with transsexuals as transsexuals are obsessed with themselves.


Why the Progressive Left Hates ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’

Posted by V the K at 8:47 am - July 6, 2015.
Filed under: Pop Culture

When the controversy over the Confederate Battle Flag erupted (because somehow the CBF was implicated in the mass murder of nine people in a way the Koran is never), leftist apologists were declaring that, “This is only about taking that flag off Government buildings and putting it in a museum. No one is talking about banning the Confederate Flag.”

And then the Obama regime decided to remove the flag from museums, too.

And then the Confederate flag became the object of corporate censorship.

So, just like when they said they were not going to force conscientious objectors into participating in gay weddings, the left was lying.

But you want to know the real reason the rainbow brownshits want ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ off the air? Because it isn’t about the CBF, it’s more about the show’s underlying message.

The Dukes were Southern ‘good ol’ boys,’ economically disadvantaged and disarmed by a corrupt state that deprived them of firearms. Yet. they stood up to, and repeatedly defeated, a greedy and corrupt state authority (Boss Hogg) who manipulated Law Enforcement (Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane) into an instrument of oppression against his opponents.

You can see why this is an unwelcome message in the age of Obama.


The Next Target for the Left’s Cultural Purge?

Posted by V the K at 8:32 am - June 26, 2015.
Filed under: Pop Culture

As Confederate Flag hysteria reaches new heights, some have begun to wonder if the television series ‘The Dukes of Hazzard’ will be memory-holed from our culture. Beyond featuring a car with the Confederate Battle Emblem on the roof named the ‘General Lee,’ the Dukes of Hazzard was a celebration of rural southern culture. Back when the southern states were solidly Democrat, the national culture was a lot more supportive of southern culture. Only since the south has turned red has the media culture turned against them.

There was another show in the 1970′s that was iconically liberal; M*A*S*H. M*A*S*H was steeped in the left-wing ideology of the time. War was never the answer. Patriots were buffoons. The communists were the good guys. Women were strong and empowered. All of the pieties of the 1970′s Hollywood left were on full display.

Nowadays, M*A*S*H would run afoul of the PC Police.

  • Alan Alda’s Captain Hawkeye Pierce (a 1970′s Liberal icon) would be a serial rapist by contemporary feminist definitions of the word.
  • The character of Corporal Max Klinger would be deemed offensive to the transgendered because his cross-dressing is intended to demonstrate mental illness.
  • In early episodes, there was a black character whose name was, I am not making this up, “Spearchucker.”

One generation’s liberal pieties are the next generation’s abominations. It demonstrates what a fickle, emotion-driven beast modern liberalism is. It’s not based on a set of proven values, but on whatever is trendy at the time.

One can foresee a time when all pre-Obama television shows and movies (except maybe for scifi shows and things set in “alternate realities”) are simply banned lest people be reminded how free and prosperous America was before Obama.

The Duggar Thing and the Left’s Complete Misunderstanding of Christianity

Posted by V the K at 9:45 pm - May 24, 2015.
Filed under: Liberal Hypocrisy,Pop Culture

The left, and vile POS Dan Savage in particular, is obsessed with the Duggar family of Arkansas; because they are white, hetersexual, Christian fundamentalists and refuse to be ashamed of any of those things like leftists think they should be.

And it turns out, one of the Duggar boys, a long time ago, did something terrible. He confessed to it, repented of it, and never made any attempt to excuse or justify it, or ask anyone else to. And that thing he did was similar in kind and degree to what honored left-wing film-makers Roman Polanski, Victor Salva, and Woody Allen did; none of whom repented of the child-rapes or creepy incestuous molestations they committed, and all of whom are welcome members of the left-wing film-making community.

But the left is going after the Duggar family with all the pitchforks and torches they can round up. And they are… in the manner of a crazed, self-righteous mob… positively gleeful about the alleged hypocrisy of the Duggar situation… because it supposedly proves Christians are awful, Christians are hypocrites, Christianity is a lie, and everybody should be a hedonistic atheist; because they are paragons of never being hypocrites.

Glenn Beck explains why they are wrong, wrong. wrong!

They would indeed be correct in their assessment if the central tenet of the Christian faith was that all believers in Christ are without sin or blemish. But far from that being a doctrine of the religion, it is actually the precise opposite of what Christians believe. None of us — not the Duggars, not anyone — claim that a faith in Jesus bestows perfect holiness on the faithful. It is because of our sinful nature that we need Him. When we sin, we do not disprove that thesis; we underscore it.

Christianity is not a ‘Get Out of Jail Free’ card that absolves holders of all transgressions, but Leftism totally is. Leftism is why Al Gore can fly all over the world on private jets and have multiple homes that have a larger carbon footprint than some third world countries; his leftism makes it okay. Leftism is why Bill Clinton can be a serial abuser of women and have feminists run to his defense; his leftism makes it okay. Leftism is why Michael Moore can avoid union labor and take tax breaks for making movies in Michigan while decrying corporate welfare; his leftism makes it okay.

Leftists don’t understand Chrisitianity; because it is utterly unlike leftism.

Piling on the Awful Super Bowl Ads

Posted by V the K at 7:48 am - February 2, 2015.
Filed under: Pop Culture

I didn’t watch the game; I cancelled cable TV two years ago and never looked back. But I have noted some of the “buzz” that most of the ads debuted in the SuperBowl were just wretched.

  • Nissan’s Ad apparently sums up their pitch as “Terrible Cars for Terrible People.”
  • Nationwide laid a bummer on the entire country with its infamous “Dead Kids” ad. The company is apparently just trying to latch onto the nationwide trend of fanatical, obsessive-compulsive over-parenting; the endgame of which is apparently to seal children in ‘Safety Pods’ until the age of 26, so to spare them any potentially harmful contact with the real world.
  • And then, of course, the rad fems must be pleased that both Always Tampons and T-Mobile released ads on the theme of “Girls Rule, Boys Suck.” Yes, the zeitgeist of our contemporary culture is exactly the same as what eight year old girls believe it should be.

As for the game itself…

Best Music of the Century

Posted by V the K at 8:03 pm - November 29, 2014.
Filed under: Pop Culture

I know, first hockey now this, because I feel like talking about something other than politics and Rainbow Fascism. Let’s talk about music.

Music will never mean as much to you as it does when you’re a teenager; it has to do with the interplay of music and the rapidly developing adolescent brain.  And it’s true, the farther my misspent adolescence disappears in the rearview mirror, the less and less I have cared about music, the harder it is for “new music” to break through to me. Most of contemporary pop music sounds to me like whores strangling cats (I’m looking at you, Bieber.)

But I haven’t hated all of the music of this century, and watching America collapse into the socialist abyss requires a soundtrack for comfort and refuge. Here are, IMHO, ten of the best songpieces to come out so far this century.

  • A Day to Remember – “All Signs Point to Lauderdale” – 2010 – Sometimes I just loop this song continuously for an hour or more.  Freakin’ love this song
  • Boards of Canada – “Dayvan Cowboy” – 2005  – an almost impossibly beautiful composition. Once I was running on a hot day and passed out in the woods with this on my mp3 player. True story.
  • Perfume – 1 MM – 2013 – After Johnny Craig, you need an upbeat pallet cleanser. Tho’ I would probably hate this song if it were in English and Katy Perry was doing it.
  • Johnny Craig – “I Still Feel Her Part III” – 2009 – which I feel quite dirty for liking, if you must know, because Johnny Craig is a complete POS. Good song though.
  • Bear McCreary – “Apocalypse” – 2009 – Bear McCreary has done the music for BSG, The Walking Dead, and Agents of Shield.  I feel like this will be considered classical music in another hundred years.
  • A Day to Remember – “I’m Made of Wax Larry, What Are You Made Of?” – 2009 – Sweet video, just the band playing kickball with some adorable moppets.
  • Kaiser Chiefs – “Ruby” – 2007 – Catchy, sort of retro, and the video speaks to my love of Sim City.
  • Jimmy Eat World – “Bleed American” – 2001 — One of the few albums released this century I can listen all the way through without skipping songs.
  • Saosin – “You’re not Alone” – 2006 -  You really can’t discuss early 20th Century without acknowledging that Emo was a thing; and on rare occasion not a bad thing. (And doesn’t the little girl in the video look like Monica Lewinsky’s mini-me?)
  • Hawthorne Heights – “This is who we are” – 2006 – I just like it because it’s catchy.

What are your choices?

PC Police in a Lather Over Michael Sam Shower Report

The media obsession with gay NFL player Michael Sam… the famous gay athlete who is famous for being gay… has, sort of backfired on ESPN. An ESPN reporter, trying to fill the much-needed void of information about every aspect of Michael Sam, did a report on what may, or may not have been, his showering habits and what may, or may not have been, his teammate’s response to them.

It was a stupid story, and no doubt, it was as a result of ESPN trying to find an angle on the famous gay athlete and how his teammates were accepting the famous gay athlete in their midst. But instead, it provoked a backlash, a huge stink was raised, because as a society, we have lost the ability to say “Well, that was stupid,” and move on. No, every offense to PC sensibilities has to be an Outrage! Just ask Sophia Vergara.

ESPN was, of course, forced to bow down before the sensitivities of hypersensitive, neurotic gays and other stupid people whose feelers were hurt, and issue an obsequious apology.

Gee, remember all those intolerant bigots who thought the hype over Michael Sam’s sexuality would be a huge distraction and headache?

What Do You Get When You Cross OWS with Lame Canadian SciFi?

Posted by V the K at 4:03 pm - August 22, 2014.
Filed under: Pop Culture

The answer to this is to be found in a show called ‘Continuum,’ which I have been watching on Netflix; because I’m a sucker for terrible sci-fi. Basic plotline is that a soldier-cop from the year 2077 (a time in which all political governments have been abolished in favor of the ‘Global Corporate Congress,’ and huge corporations run the world) travels back to our era in order to stop a gang of terrorists known as ‘Liber8,’ who are stand-ins for the Occupy Movement (minus the rape tents and pooping on cop cars). Liber8 wants to stop the evil corporations from taking over, the soldier-cop is trying to stop them.

  • There is no nuance. Corporations and everyone who works for one is EVIL; and Corporations commit mass murder pretty much all the time and get away with it. Those who fight the corporations are GOOD. And in-between them, are the cops, who slowly realize they are fighting on the wrong side. One character joins liberate after ‘the corporations’ carpet-bomb her remote mountain village for no reason other than “what the corporations cannot own, they destroy.”
  • The characters are so one-dimensional they make Ayn Rand look like Jane Austen. Everyone who works for the corporations is evil; literally killing people for profit (because, obviously, murdering your customer base is the key to building brand loyalty). Everyone allied with Liber8 is pure and good. And the head corporate dude from the future is the Cigarette Smoking Man from The X-Files.
  • Messages are delivered with the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the side of the head. One of the evil corporations is called ‘Sonmanto.’ They make agricultural products as cover for their real business; deadly chemical weapons production. Get it? Or do they need to flash “Sonmanto is an anagram for Monsanto! Corporations are evil, you morons!” at the bottom of the screen.
  • There is no comic relief. Every show is as dark and serious as heart surgery in a blackout. No humor can be permitted when your object is to WAKE UP THE PEOPLE about the threat of EVIL CORPORATIONS.

Political messaging really is the enemy of art, isn’t it?


Old Comic Book Desperately Strains for Relevance

Posted by V the K at 10:16 pm - July 14, 2014.
Filed under: Pop Culture

Archie Comics has decided to kill off the titular “Archie” in a forthcoming issue. Archie will “die” taking a bullet for a gay senator crusading for gun control. (The assailant will probably be waving a Gadsden Flag and wearing an “Impeach Obama” shirt.)

Not making this up.

All of the hot topics of today are involved in the storyline: the death takes place in a future where Archie, Betty, Veronica, and everyone else are all adults, and Kevin Keller, the first openly gay character in the comics, is now a US Senator fighting for gun control and free contraceptives for homeless transgendered illegal immigrant children.

(OK, I may have made up the part in italics.) This is sort of like one of those Law and Order “ripped from the headlines” storylines, where the episode’s plotline was grabbed from a major news story, then twisted to fit a left-wing agenda. The thing about Law and Order was even if the killing at the start of the show took place in a wig store in Harlem during a Dominican Pride Parade, by the end of the show a rich white guy would be convicted for it and the rich white guy was probably having an affair with his secretary.

So, who actually reads Archie comics anymore? What is the core demographic? People who don’t know about the internet? This stunt is kind the kind of thing washed-up D-list celebrities like Margaret Cho and Ellen Barkin do when nobody cares any more and they desperately need attention; begin spinning PC bullcrap and hope the MFM notice and give you publicity.

Seems to be working. So, the decision not to have Archie die saving a conservative, pro-life woman senator was probably a good call.

#bringwhateverandstuff … Is this really how we handle things now?

I don’t really know how to express how puerile and silly the whole thing with the First Lady and that hashtag thing was, so I’ve put it down in a few thousand words instead (and included a thousand empty ones for you to play along and do your own as well).

(By the way, a whole bunch more here. I haven’t read through all of them, so if I accidentally ripped someone off with one of mine, it was totally unintentional.)
