The Poz

I don’t have a cable subscription, so the habit of channel surfing is unavailable to me, which means I miss much of what passes for pop culture. If I watch a movie, it is off the pirate system or from Amazon. TV shows I can binge watch off the Kodi, without having to sit through the commercials. Frankly, it is the only way I can watch television now. The commercials are so full of multicultural proselytizing, that I can’t make it through a normal show. That said, there are some shows that are not full of multiculti agit-prop.

Someone told me the TV series 12 Monkeys was pretty good, so I binged the first couple seasons recently. The series is based on the movie, which was a time travel flick staring Bruce Willis. The basic premise is people in the future send people back in time in an effort to find the people who caused a great plague. The idea is to alter the timeline by preventing the plague or figuring out the nature of the plague in order to create a treatment or vaccination against it. In the movie, Bruce Willis was the time traveler.

The trouble with all time travel movies is that they can never figure out how to handle the obvious problem of paradoxes. The writers usually fixate on it, as it makes for interesting possibilities, but they lack the smarts to make it work. Sometimes you have old self going back in time to give young self answers, like what happened with Biff in the Back to the Future series. Other times, the old self accidentally alters something in the past, only to return to a wildly altered future, his present. Then he has to go back and fix what he broke.

In this series, the writers actually do a good job avoiding the hackneyed time travel plot gimmicks and come up with a good plot that respects the “reality” of time travel. I don’t want to give too much away, but it you read the book The Man Who Folded Himself you will appreciate what the writers did with time travel. The show is relatively free of poz. No heroic homosexuals, no super hero women, no magical negros. It’s mostly unknown white actors doing a serviceable job acting out a reasonably well done television script.

Now, no series about time travel can make it to the air without having some scenes about the characters going back in time to Nazi Germany. That’s an unknown part of the secret law that was passed in the 60’s. We get that nonsense in this series, but it is brief, even though they obliquely try to blame the cause of the time travel conspiracy on the Nazi scientists experimenting on Jews. It’s the one bit of subversion that was tucked into the script after it was written, on instructions from the people producing the series.

The relative lack of poz in the series got me thinking about propaganda in movies and when it became so heavy handed. I had the movie Death Wish on my list, the new version, not the 1970’s version, so I watched it along with the original last weekend. I had not watched the original with Charles Bronson is decades. Frankly, I had forgotten just how bad he was at acting. Then again, the 1970’s featured a lot of really bad acting in popular movies. Maybe the audience just liked the stilted dialogue and clunky style.

For those unfamiliar, the original Death Wish was made during the last Progressive inspired black crime wave, which they started in the late sixties. By the 70’s, most cities were unlivable because feral blacks were running wild in the streets. Death Wish is about a normal middle-class white guy who loses his family to home invaders and decides to become a vigilante. The original makes the killers three Jewish guys, one of whom is Jeff Goldbloom, so even in the 70’s, movies were poz’d up on the race issue.

That said, the woman issue is where you see the difference. In the opening to the original, Bronson is at the beach with his wife, who is portrayed as a normal traditional wife. She likes looking like a women and being complimented on her looks. Bronson’s character enjoys her being a women and acts like a normal man. Throughout the movie, women play normal female roles. Whenever I watch an old movie and see how women were cast in their roles, I realize what a great mistake it was giving into the feminist harpies.

The new version does the same thing with the race issue, of course. We’ve reached the point now where it is forbidden to portray blacks as anything other than noble victims or admirable heroes. That means we have to pretend the nation’s crime problems are the fault of white street gangs using out-dated slang from the olden thymes or conspiracies operated by evil white men. Otherwise, the remake is a decent version that is free of the usual multicultural junk that makes most movie watching miserable.

I’ve developed an interest in 1970’s pop culture, mostly because it seems so alien to me, even though I was alive to remember some of it. I was too young to notice most of it, so seeing it through old man eyes in the current age, it feels like another world. But, it also reveals that the multicultural assault on our society did not start last week. This is a long term, multi-generational war on us that started before most of us were born. This scene from the 1971 Dirty Harry movie is a warning from the long gone past.

The Dirty Harry clip is a classic. That could be Hillary Clinton from the Mayor’s office. “Ms.” Rodham, Lesbian from the Mayor’s office.

Enjoy the crazy that is coming with Kennedy retiring. If you thought the Left was spinning off the rails in recent weeks, Kennedy just poured a gallon of kerosene on the dumpster fire that is Democratic Party Politics, and said, “Watch this shit.”

Yeah, I agree. The left has no serious fight in it. Their force-multipliers are propaganda (read: brainwashing), the judiciary, and mob intimidation. But the third relies on the first two in order to be effective, and those are being discredited and subverted before our eyes. The propaganda wing–primarily the media and educational establishments–has become so transparently partisan that few take it seriously, and we’re watching the dismantling of the judicial tyranny of the past several decades with the appointment of adult judges at all federal levels. As a bonus, Trump seems to be making serious inroads into the federal bureaucracies.… Read more »

They’re trying to figure out how to incite some violence without actually calling for violence. It’s clear to anybody listening what Moore wants. But Moore is a pussy who wouldn’t really do anything. He needs some crazies to take what he said…and then go out and improvise.

Hell, the whole bank heist/coffee shop scene with “I got’s to know” would be off limits today. The one thing always found funny, having owned a .44 magnum revolver at one time, is that Harry, in real life, would have been stone deaf by the last movie in the series.

I’ve heard that Thomas might actually retire since there’s a GOP President to replace him. If Ginsberg and/or Breyer croak…they’re both in their 80’s and Ginsberg has about 12 different kinds of cancer God bless her…I think there will be violence around the country to try and prevent Trump from replacing them with conservative judges. That’s the subtext of the panic over Kennedy…Ginsberg and Breyer are both teetering on the edge. The Dems could be looking at 6-3 or 7-2 court by 2020 or 2024 since it looks like Trump probably wins re-election at this point.

Roberts indicated that he had no intention of remaining a judge for life, and plans to go back to private practice to make some real money. He has previously suggested that a 10 year term for Supreme Court Justices is appropriate.

He has been on the bench since 2003, and on the Supreme Court since 2005. He’s 63 years old. I won’t be surprised to see Roberts resign.

I remember comics did much the same thing in the 1980s. While IRL black crime was skyrocketing due to the crack epidemic, Batman was beating up white thugs with pink mohawks who wore safety pins in their leather jackets while menacing old ladies. At the time, I chalked it up to comics artists being boomer squares who were still freaked out by punk rock, but looking back at the ethnic backgrounds of these guys, well … let’s just say there are a lot of coincidences.

There are no blacks in the original Star Wars and when they do bring in lando, there is a subtext of not to trust him!

I was just thinking the other day about how the classic Dirty Harry movies had racial “stereotypes” (aka realism) about typical criminals of the time. Of course the main bad guy in the first film is a white guy (a kind of effeminate one), but the disposable bad guys–the ones doing random holdups–in the Dirty Harry films are usually loud-talking black guys.

With regard to Charles Bronson, it’s really interesting how preferred acting styles change. I was a teenager during the ’70’s, and I can safely say that the acting in contemporary movies didn’t seem stilted or unusual – whereas, the acting styles of the 1930’s and ’40’s just seemed weird. Whereas today, the styles of the ’30’s and 40’s seem a lot more “realistic” than those of the ’70’s. You can only wonder how the future will see what we consider “normal” acting.

Of course, she ends up becoming his “partner” and magically earns his respect having absolutely no field experience (we never find out how fast she can run the hundred, do we?). Unfortunately, the scene was just a setup for the later wymynpwrrr! I notice some comments on the clip point out she earned his respect with her “knowledge.” Problem is, the position did not require just knowledge, but physical skills and experience. Her knowledge made her more suitable for a prosecutor’s office or internal affairs, not necessarily street enforcement. I don’t see too many nightclubs employing 100 lb females as… Read more »

According to Jack Dunphy, 20% of cops do all the heavy lifting. 80% are just taking up space and studying for promotion exams because they know what they are. Which is why the men at the top are of such poor quality.

Go to a major military base. If there is an actual ground combat unit based there (Infantry, Armor, Artillery) they are the ones doing the actual training. All the “support” people are walking around the base like it’s a college campus.

We see in a scene shortly after the interview scene that she runs waaay slower than Harry and the jackrabbit black criminal he chases. Though lagging behind, she is able to retrieve a briefcase with a bomb in it from the trash that the criminal leaves. She handles the briefcase very roughly before discovering there is a bomb in it. Clint Eastwood has always been refreshingly anti-PC and unapologetic about it.

Daly’s character in Dirty Harry was brave and tough actually and while started out a pencil neck only on the job because she was a women toughed up a lot

I can see a little growing respect from Harry and there was a hint of sexual chemistry as well. It might have clouded his judgment a bit but i think in the end she earned respect

“Predestination” with Ethan Hawke.
Not an action film at all, but truly twisty.

Two white guys in a bar, a customer telling his story (with flashbacks) to the bartender. And what a story.

Smart and riveting- some scenes make you realize that our world is the Changed. This isn’t how it was.

Since we’re talking Bruce Willis, “Looper” is another diversity-free time travel yarn.
I liked Bruce’s traumatized prisoner in “Twelve Monkeys”, a lot, I like the gut-punch of “Looper” even more.

The economics of a broken America in “Looper” are scarily prescient- paid in silver or gold, swap meets by street people beneath vacant scyscrapers. The outrageous short-sightedness of the gangsters is a hoot, and the only use found for time travel- well, it’s a scream.

Yeah, all that’s in the older shows, but that’s usually the extent of it. tThere’s not usually any lesbian on lesbian double dildo scenes, or any large black homosexual gentlemen mounting frail white men, or even any transgendered 10 yr olds twerking for 100s of horny gay men, in Wagon Train, Gunsmoke, The Waltons, Little House on The Prairie, etc.

So, it’s a bit of a trade out.

Z Man; The crime wave of the late ’60s & early-mid ’70s wasn’t just Blacks (although they became the public face). It had a significant demographic factor as well as an excess Liberalism factor. Don’t forget that Blacks were part of the baby boom too. In effect, along with feral Whites, they ‘flooded the zone’ just as the crude police repression of young male Blacks was being dialed back. That cops routinely beat young Black males for minor transgressions as a means to preserve social order up through the mid ’60s is a fact. Civil Rights leaders were right to… Read more »

Point to you- potential beatdowns are the language of malefactors who are actually a danger. That’s what the dang nightstick is for, instant messaging to the proper audience.

Other Al;

Agreed: Potential beatdown works well as a deterrent to malefactors so long as it remains potential, i.e. uncommon, is proportionate and it it follows an actual offense. Definition of Actual Offense = ‘What the hell else did you expect_?’, from your peers.

It loses deterrence and community acquiescence if it is a standard practice.

Excellent points and I would add one more, oft-under-appreciated factor. The surge in murders (both numerically and as a ratio of the population in urban centers) we saw in the 1970s, 1980s, and the first half of the 1990s, literally killed off most of the young black men who would have constituted a danger to their own neighborhoods and others. If you do the research of DOJ/FBI data going back four decades, you will see that In 1992 there were over 2,200 homicides in NYC. The great majority of those homicides occurred in lower income minority neighborhoods. This was nothing… Read more »

I’d love to see a feminist version of “Saving Private Ryan”. The Americans would be played by fat, purple haired feminists rushing the up the beaches wearing their pink hats screaming NAZI, NAZI, NAZI!

Meanwhile those on the “opposing side” would be refugees from Somalia, Syria, and the rest of the shit-countries, screaming ‘burqa-burqa-jihad’, and blowing themselves up with an assortment of dynamite vests and malfunctioning mortars.

As much an anyone I deviate from the original article… but this is an important topic.

Actually Hollywood portrays white Englishmen as the bad guys quite often. Something about the British accent makes for wonderful villains. Think back to how many villains you’ve seen in American movies who have British accents – StarWars (voice of Gen. Tarkin) Disney’s original Jungle Book (voice of Kahn), The Rocketeer (Timothy Dalton) National Treasure (Sean Bean)..

I went to school with a guy who’s father had served in WW2 with Bronson. His name was Ray Tolliver and he was a Golden Gloves boxing champ in the Army. He was a brute of a man and would throw my buddy and I around like rag dolls when we would wrestle in the backyard. He told me on several occasions the the only man he couldn’t whip when he was boxing in the Army was Bronson. I can’t corroborate his stories but I get the feeling that Bronson might really have been a “tough guy”.

Its black folks in a poor Chicago neighborhood hustling, swindling and conning friends and strangers for money. Its a movie made for black folks, by black folks, so is more honest in its portrayal of the culture. Even today, movies like “Friday” or… Read more »
