The Real Reason Portland Moonbats Pulled Kindergarten Cop

When Portland moonbats canceled Kindergarten Cop in favor of a hagiography of leftist congresscritter John Lewis, we were told it was because, as thought cop Lois Leveen put it,

“There’s nothing entertaining about the presence of police in schools, which feeds the ‘school-to-prison’ pipeline in which African American, Latinx and other kids of color are criminalized rather than educated. Five- and 6-year-olds are handcuffed and hauled off to jail routinely in this country.”

However, this scene of the movie reveals the real reason — it portrays Democrats in their true light:

Kindergarten Cop Canceled

Even the most anodyne aspects of American culture must be erased before progressives can impose utopia — like the movie Kindergarten Cop.

From quintessentially liberal Portland:

NW Film Center had planned to kick off Cinema Unbound, its summer drive-in movie series at Zidell Yards, on Aug. 6 with a screening of the 1990 action-comedy Kindergarten Cop.

The movie has local significance because it was filmed in Astoria, Oregon. But it has been canceled. Instead, the audience will be treated to yet another lecture on why we must worship a sometimes juvenile ultraleft congresscritter.

In announcing the cancellation, NWFC said it came to the decision after discussions with “staff and community members” convinced them that, given the current political climate, it would be wiser instead to add a second screening of Good Trouble, the new documentary on civil rights icon John Lewis, who died July 17.

The cancelation was due to “complaints.” These complaints came primarily from a single moonbat: local author Lois Leveen.

“National reckoning on overpolicing is a weird time to revive Kindergarten Cop. IRL [in ‘real’ life], we are trying to end the school-to-prison pipeline,” she tweeted. “There’s nothing entertaining about the presence of police in schools, which feeds the ‘school-to-prison’ pipeline in which African American, Latinx and other kids of color are criminalized rather than educated. Five- and 6-year-olds are handcuffed and hauled off to jail routinely in this country.”

Sure they are, Lois. Now just put down the bullhorn and let the nice men help you with their butterfly nets.

Access to her deranged tweet has been restricted. At last word, a single person had liked it. It doesn’t take much pushing to get action, so long as the pushing comes from the left.

Leveen followed up with a message to NWFC, accusing it of “traumatizing schoolchildren” for fun and comparing the light-hearted kiddie movie with Birth of a Nation. She also compares both movies with Gone With the Wind, an all-time favorite that is headed down the memory hole.

“[D]espite what the movie shows,” shrieks Leveen, “in reality, schools don’t transform cops. Cops transform schools, and in an extremely detrimental way.”

Police are bad, because Black Lives Matter said so.

As with all bullies, getting no resistance will not satisfy her, but only leave her hungry for more bullying.

“I have been a Silver Screen members for years, and an NWFC patron even longer, and I know how seldom their screenings attract substantial numbers of BIPOC audience members,” Leveen writes in an email. “When a white-dominant institution cannot honestly admit their error and insensitivity, it does not suggest they will avoid similar errors and insensitivities in the future.”

NWFC’s summer drive-in plans already include ultraleft agitprop like Milk and Do the Right Thing. But too much is never enough to please social justice warriors.

People had better enjoy Good Trouble. In the near future, that’s the only kind of movie they will be allowed to watch. Except of course gay porn.

TLC Presents Woke Conception of a Family

What would you get if you crossed PC social engineering with a freak show sicker than anything ever to send someone stumbling out of the back tent at a carnival, hand clenched to mouth, vomit spurting from between the fingers? TLC, aka The Learning Channel. There you can learn just how twisted society can become after being remade by leftists.

Via Red Elephants:

A woman pretending to be a man married to a man pretending to be a woman has become pregnant, and TLC has given these new ‘transgender’ parents their own reality television show.

Here is what you might step into if you wander off from OANN and Fox News, the lonely islands of sanity in an ocean of moonbattery:

Utopia has not yet been achieved. The couple should be interracial.

A&E Sees Ratings Plunge After Wokely Canceling Live PD

As the wise man said: get woke, go broke. A&E’s viewership has crashed since it pandered to Black Lives Matter by canceling the popular Live PD.

Last month the execs proclaimed they would kill the show, which portrayed police officers in a positive light, due to the “current political moment.” Let’s hope they got a nice pat on the head from leftist radicals, because they paid a big price for it:

The Wall Street Journal notes that the show, before its cancellation, averaged 1.9 million viewers on Friday and Saturday nights.

Now, however, during the period immediately following the network’s cancellation — June 11 through July 19 — viewership on Friday and Saturday nights was 498,000 in the key demographic of adults ages 25 to 54 years.

Just before the network announced the cancellation of the hit show, A&E’s primetime viewership was up 4%, the outlet reports, citing relevant Nielsen data.

Following the cancellation, however, A&E saw its daily viewership drop 36% when compared to the same time in 2019.

Media executives learn slowly. A&E also burned itself by trying to cancel the thought criminal Phil Robertson after setting him up. At the time, Duck Dynasty was at the height of its popularity. A&E was forced to walk back the cancelation.

For the time being, they won’t dare walk back canceling Live PD; the Black Lives Matter mob is too scary.

If America survives the current attempt to destroy it, we must have long memories to prevent future existential threats from within. Anyone who kneels to the anti-American Marxist terrorists of Black Lives Matter — whether literally like Major League Baseball or figuratively like A&E — needs to be permanently registered on the scorecard.

Cartoons for the Age of Wokeness: Social Justice Warriors

Old-fashioned cartoons are problematic. For example, Looney Tunes used to feature firearms in the hands of law-abiding citizens like Elmer Fudd, an obvious thought crime. Rather than try to shoehorn the old cartoons into the current political orthodoxy like HBO Max, why not just delete them, as is currently done with television programs that cast police officers in a favorable light? Everything that came before right this minute is probably racist. Kids should be watching new cartoons that comply with the times, like Social Justice Warriors:

Entertainment Industry Purges Past Blasphemers Against Black Lives Matter

America under the domination of Black Lives Matter calls to mind the Salem Witch Trials, particularly in the entertainment industry, where a famous private investigator has been hired to scour social media for past deviations from BLM orthodoxy so that actors revealed as witches racists can be purged.

Via Daily Mail:

CBS, Showtime, MTV and VHI have all hired famed California-based investigator Edward Myers to snoop into social media accounts and find posts that could land their shows in hot water in the future.

Heads are already rolling to please BLM:

Last week Bravo fired Vanderpump Rules stars Brett Caprioni, Max Boyens, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute for posting racially insensitive tweets in the past.

Anything not in 100% compliance with demented Black Lives Matter dogma might qualify as “racially insensitive.” That is the stick they have used to beat an entire society into submission; it has proven more effective than the USSR’s nuclear arsenal.

On Wednesday CW fired Below Deck Mediterranean star Peter Hunziker for a racist Instagram post. …

The network also cut Hartley Sawyer from The Flash.

MTV has cut Dee Nguyen from The Challenge, Taylor Selfridge from Teen Mom, and Alex Kompothecras from Siesta Key. Apparently, Selfridge was leaving her show anyway, but MTV wanted to get credit for firing her for ideological reasons to show its obeisance to dominant black supremacist ideology. Nguyen’s thought crimes include failing to honor Blackout Tuesday.

Standard groveling apologies have proven to be pointless, as they did not mollify the inquisitors.

How ironic that one of the victims of the purge is named Stassi. After BLM and its “allies” consolidate political power in Washington, the investigation into past thought crimes will be centralized. This will become the main occupation of the FBI and CIA. Then we will say goodbye to the Salem Witch Trials and hello to the Stasi.

John Cleese Pushes Back Against the BLM Purge

The reason moonbats have been able to burn, loot, inflict terror and mayhem, tear down statues of history’s giants, and purge the popular culture of anything that does not comply with their radical ideology is that hardly anyone is pushing back. Pushback works.

John Cleese is no countermoonbat, but neither is he a left-wing maniac. That means he has a duty to push back against the ongoing cultural putsch. He has done so:

An episode of sitcom “Fawlty Towers” removed from a streaming site for containing “racial slurs” is to be reinstated. John Cleese had attacked the decision to remove the episode as “stupid,” as well as taking a swipe at those who take a revisionist view of history in the context of the Black Lives Matter debate.

Early on Friday, BBC-owned TV network UKTV announced on Twitter that it had temporarily removed the episode titled “The Germans” from its Gold download service as it contained “racial slurs.” …

It is believed the “racial slurs” are contained in a scene in which the character known as the Major uses the N-word when referring to Caribbean sportsmen.

Later on Friday, UKTV said the episode would be reinstated “in the coming days” with the addition of “extra guidance.”

Fine, stick warning labels on sitcoms if you really find it necessary. Just don’t hurl them down the memory hole, because once that gets going, it won’t stop until there is nothing left on British TV but Jeremy Corbyn diatribes.

As Cleese pointed out,

“The Major was an old fossil left over from decades before. We were not supporting his views, we were making fun of them.”

However, context does not matter to the thought police when it comes to whites uttering the forbidden n-word. Ask Papa John about it.

Watch Actors Denounce Themselves for Being White

If you think nothing can lower your opinion of entertainment industry celebrities, watch them solemnly and self-righteously denounce themselves for being white so as to support the rioting, mayhem, and cultural eradication taking place throughout the country in the name of BLM’s black supremacist ideology:

Their self-hatred is certainly justified. However, projecting it onto their racial group is racist and uncalled for.

If you think you can sit through the entire Hollyweird antiwhite PSA, give it a shot. I’ll admit that I didn’t have the belly for it; a violent surge of nausea stopped me within a matter of seconds. Via PJ Media:

Gone With the Wind, Police Shows Purged

Iconic heroes of the past are not the only targets of the resurgent jihad against our cultural heritage inspired by the Black Lives Matter riots. Popular culture also must be purged of anything not in lockstep with today’s leftist ideology.

Gone With the Wind is among the most famous classic movies of all time. If you have it on DVD, you might be wise to bury it in the backyard where it will be safe. The movie has been judged to glorify the antebellum South, which is a thought crime. It has therefore been pulled by HBO Max:

In a statement, HBO Max said “Gone With the Wind” is a “product of its time and depicts some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that have, unfortunately, been commonplace in American society.” When the movie returns to the platform it will be “with a discussion of its historical context and a denouncement of those very depictions, but will be presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. If we are to create a more just, equitable and inclusive future, we must first acknowledge and understand our history.”

In practice, this means erasing our history, as the War on Statues has made obvious. Once the movie has been warehoused, it will eventually be forgotten.

More contemporary entertainment has also been targeted for cultural genocide:

On Tuesday, the long-running show “Cops,” a reality program which showed the police in a very favorable light, was canceled by the Paramount Network.

Police are bad. Those who disagree are racists. They too are bad and must be reformed with more politically correct entertainment.

Cops ran for over 30 years. Don’t expect to see reruns; they will lie with Dukes of Hazard reruns at the bottom of the memory hole.

The popular show Live P.D. has also been canceled for featuring police officers in a positive light:

A&E has canceled its flagship series and one of the highest-rated shows on basic cable. A week after Live P.D. was pulled in the wake of George Floyd’s death, the reality series’ hiatus has been made permanent.

Crime dramas have been a television staple for years. They will have to be replaced. Stay tuned for lots more vapid sitcoms with predominantly black casts.

Every time an event occurs that can serve as a pretext, liberals go into overdrive scrubbing the culture of anything they deem out of step with their repugnant ideology. It is their natural inclination. The more power they have, the more will be erased.

Bugs Bunny Cartoons Politically Corrected

No corner of culture can escape from the totalitarian ideology that is moonbattery. Some things will be erased, like the Texas Rangers. Others will be transformed so as to comply with the current liberal point of view. Not even the Warner Brothers cartoons many of us grew up with are immune. Liberals dislike firearms, because they allow the individual to defend himself from both the mob and the tyrannical governments that successful mobs invariably install. Therefore, guns are to be purged from the cartoons. Violence is all right though:

The show was relaunched on HBO Max last week under the title “Looney Tunes Cartoons.” The show will feature the renowned “Looney Tunes” characters, and it will include many of the antics for which the “Looney Tunes” are known, such as “the sticks of dynamite, the intricate booby traps, the anvils and bank safes dropped on unsuspecting heads,” the New York Times reported.

However, Elmer Fudd, the character known for hunting Bugs Bunny, will be without his hunting rifle in an apparent nod to gun control.

Instead, Elmer Fudd will carry a scythe.

You know, like the Grim Reaper.

Hunting rabbits and ducks with a scythe is no more unreal than anything else that has been brought into line with leftist ideology.

At least the name “Looney Tunes” fits the cartoons better than ever.

Yosemite Sam — who has always been characterized by shooting revolvers into the air — doesn’t get to have guns either. Maybe he will brandish an axe.

All remnants of American culture need to be stored offline before the thought police can deform or erase them.

No more thought crimes like this episode.

Disney Amps Up Homosexual Indoctrination Targeting Children

The Long March Through the Institutions has been a smashing success, allowing liberals to transform our culture in directions that virtually no one would have found tolerable just a few years ago. Of more strategic value even than schools, judiciaries, and corporate boardrooms is the entertainment industry. Progressive social engineers have aggressively exploited their control of it to promote homosexuality to children.

Via CNSNews:

One Million Moms, a division of the American Family Association, is warning parents that the upcoming Marvel Studios film “Eternals” features an openly gay male superhero and his “spouse,” who kiss on screen.

The Eternals movie is being distributed by Walt Disney Studios and is scheduled for release on Feb. 12, 2021.

Speaking of Disney,

Pixar features its first gay character in a lead role in its new short film Out. It began streaming Friday, May 22, as part of Pixar’s SparkShorts series on Disney+.

Out follows the story of a grown gay man named Greg who struggles with coming out to his parents before moving to the big city with his boyfriend, Manuel.

Here’s how the movie concludes:

Both Greg’s mother and father gladly accept Greg’s relationship with Manuel. Greg and Manuel are shown being affectionate throughout the film before kissing at the end.

Despite the unwholesome subject matter, the target audience appears to be small children:

At the rate we are “progressing,” explicit anal penetration in children’s programming can’t be more than a few years away.

Cardi B Eggs On Looters

Police use of excessive force is to be avoided. This is one of the many reasons that government must be limited. You might think that everyone would agree on this. But as with everything in a country fighting for its life against end-stage liberalism, the issue has been politicized and racialized.

Whites are more likely than blacks to be shot by the police. When they get themselves killed by the police, it is a local story at most. In contrast, when a black is killed, whole cities erupt.

Blacks can’t help but seize on events like George Floyd’s death as a pretext to riot and loot. They have no choice, as cultural spokeswoman Cardi B explains:

Incitement to riot is technically a crime, but this too depends on race.

The black community is lucky to have moral philosophers like Cardi B to guide it through these troubled times. Maybe Joe Biden should consider her for VP.

Watch Fading Bimbo Julia Roberts Gush Over the Man Who Destroyed America’s Economy

M. Catharine Evans is right. This is disgusting. Be sure to position a bucket nearby before attempting to watch fading but still ultrarich Tinseltown moonbat Julia Roberts obsequiously gush and act starstruck as she interviews “maybe the coolest man on the planet,” Anthony Fauci, the clueless technocrat more responsible than anyone else for pointlessly throwing 39 million Americans out of work:

To summarize: The lockdowns must continue; we can never return to the old world where people like Fauci didn’t have total power over our lives; this can’t end until a vaccine is discovered (which that may never happen).

The only point of interest here is how it demonstrates that moonbats worship government power — particularly power used to crush people. How else to explain the rock star status among them of a 79-year-old bureaucrat who is so often wrong?
