Captain Marvel is the typical Hollywood fantasy, with a woman playing the “captain,” plenty of heroic non-whites, and lots of bad white people. It will be released this Friday, March 8, which happens to be International Women’s Day. It’s all too trite for words.

But Marvel Cinematic Universe and Disney may just be pushing their luck with Brie Larson, who plays the captain. Every chance she gets, she low-rates “white dudes,” who are important consumers of action movies.

Let’s see how important.

For the years 2014-2017, seven of the top 20 grossing movies were either from Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies or a DC Comics property. According to the 2017 Motion Picture Association of America report, 52 percent of the domestic audience for Wonder Woman was white, along with 58 percent for the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel and 51 percent for Spider-Man: Homecoming.

The 2016 report showed that the audience for Captain America: Civil War was 48 percent white. In 2015, the audience for Avengers: Age of Ultron was 50 percent white. The 2014 MPAA report found that 57 percent of the audience for Guardians of the Galaxy was white along with 55 percent for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

This means money. For example, Avengers: Age of Ultron grossed $459 million in the USA, meaning whites shelled out $238 million for it. Captain Marvel is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe production with a female lead. Current projections show the moviecould have an opening of $100 million or more, which would put it in the top 10 openings for MCU.

Miss Larson has strong opinions about white men. In June 2018, while on stage at the “Crystal + Lucy Awards” (an event celebrating women in film), she ranted about “white dudes,” lamenting that they reviewed the majority of the prior year’s top grossing movies. To be exact, 64 percent of reviews were written by white men. She repeatedly asked, “Am I saying I hate white dudes?” Her response: “No, I’m not . . . [but if] you make the movie that is a love letter to women of color, there is an insanely low chance a woman of color will have a chance to see your movie and review your movie.”

She went on:

[Audiences] are not allowed enough chances to read public discourse on these films by the people that the films were made for. I do not need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work for him about [A] Wrinkle in Time. It wasn’t made for him. I want to know what it meant to women of color, to biracial women, to teen women of color, to teens that are biracial.

A Wrinkle in Time was one of 2018’s biggest bombs; Disney lost $100 million on it. But Miss Larson thinks it was worth it because it cast blacks in what were traditionally white roles.

Recently, she handpicked a black journalist, Keah Brown, for an interview with Marie Claireand elaborated on white men:

About a year ago, I started paying attention to what my press days looked like and the critics reviewing movies, and noticed it appeared to be overwhelmingly white male. So, I spoke to Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that. Moving forward, I decided to make sure my press days were more inclusive. After speaking with you, the film critic Valerie Complex and a few other women of color, it sounded like across the board they weren’t getting the same opportunities as others. When I talked to the facilities that weren’t providing it, they all had different excuses.

Captain Marvel has a production budget of $152 million and MCU is risking a lot on the movie. Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige promises MCU will be more diverse (less white) and more female in the future, but all this blasting of “white dudes” may drive off an important part of its audience.

Miss Larson’s comments finally caught up with her when an army of online “trolls” flooded RottenTomatoes.com with negative reviews of Captain Marvel. The Hollywood Reporter quoted one anonymous user:

Why Marvel decided to cast a very vocal racist and sexist [actress who launches insults] aimed at white males, I’ll never know. If Robert Downey Jr. started saying that he didn’t care about the opinions of 40 year old white chicks and he doesn’t want to be interviewed by a white woman as its not inclusive enough, people would lose their minds.

There were so many negatives reviews that RottenTomatoes.com disabled the “Want To See [the movie]” feature. The attack had dropped the “Want To See” rating to 27 percent, the lowest of any MCU movie to date.

The Washington Post noted this type of online dogpile hit Black Panther and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Cheering the website’s decision to censor comments, author Kayla Epstein condemned the trolling when “a blockbuster is set to open with a lead who is not male or not white.”

“People are excited about the film, but trolls hijack the conversation, sometimes targeting the movie’s stars,” she wrote. “What should have been a good time instead becomes an Internet maelstrom in which a movie and its actors must not only promote the work but also simultaneously assert its right to exist.”

Complex, NBC, and Esquire also condemned criticism of Captain Marvel and Brie Larson, and most journalists have praised Rotten Tomatoes’ decision to disable “Want To See.” Brie Larson can criticize “white dudes” all she wants, but you better not criticize her.

There was a flyover of Hollywood by the Air Force Thunderbirds for the movie’s premiere; it got the comments it deserved: “I’m betting that Brie Larson made sure that the pilots weren’t white men.”

“They forgot the payload. Or the movie . . . . is already bombed.”

“Things the US military does: Promote movies, fight other people’s wars. Things they don’t do: Defend our own border.”

“I prefer entertainers who don’t HATE us.”

Disney and MCU need white men, and there’s an easy way to make a statement to Miss Larson. Stay home. Let her find out what happens when whites stop subsidizing people who hate them.

What’s really great about all this sickness is what it really produces in these crazed young women who believe they are going to have super lives and do super things. Unfortunately, when reality hits and they find they can’t be anything they want they end up suicidal, broken, in therapy, or mentally ill because white male supremacy has stopped them from being these Super Female Beings.

    Disney doesn’t really need to cater to white men. Maximizing profit is not as important to woke companies as winning the culture war. Only conservative run companies believe in maximizing profits as goal number 1.

    White men love bread and circuses and will willingly pay money for movies that demean them if it is a quality movie unlike these lady ghostbusters. If the movie bombs it won’t be for her hating white men

  13. Miro23 says:

    They should have worked it out already with feminist Ghostbusters – Answer the Call

    Ghostbusters grossed $128.3 million in North America and $100.8 million in other territories for a worldwide total of $229.1 million, with a net production budget of $144 million. Due to the large amount spent on marketing, the studio stated that the film would need to gross at least $300 million to break even. Before the release, director Paul Feig stated, “A movie like this has to at least get to like $500 million worldwide, and that’s probably low.

    Wikipedia: Ghostbusters (2016 film)

  14. @Truth

    Quite agree,old chap. But teen whites and younger guys do like this dumb shit. Gotta get the word out.

  15. PK: “Let her find out what happens when whites stop subsidizing people who hate them.”

    White people generally love being insulted and spat upon by people who hate them. For example, they made Oprah (“white people just have to die”) Winfrey a billionaire. They idolized Bill Cosby too. White women even still eagerly seek out OJ Simpson’s infamous company.

    This most likely occurs because whites have nothing but contempt for themselves, which causes them to identify with those who hate them. For what reason other than self-hatred would they pass laws that disadvantage their own children in favor of the children of non-whites? Why else would they give up their own freedom of association, or their own freedom of speech, in order to soothe the feelings of non-whites? They despise themselves.

    By openly showing her contempt for white men, Brie Larson is probably just trying to cash in on this masochistic psychological quirk whites have. If history is anything to go by, it will boost ticket sales.

    The first two Nolan Batman films are excellent pieces of popular cinema.

    The latest Thor movie is a blast. It is both very funny and aesthetically dynamic and pleasing.

    I’ll even stand up for the most recent Avengers picture. It may not be intelligent itself, but the way in which it ties in so many storyline threads is unique in its ambition and artfulness.

    I appreciate that many comic book showings are poor but blithely dismissing the entire genre is silly. Would you also look down on people for enjoying the Iliad, the Odyssey and the Aeneid?

    As for your comment, as with lots of entertainment, the only reason guys would go see a movie like this to begin with is in the hope that Miss Larson may end up with her skin-tight outfit down to her ankles and her compass medalion against the mattress at one point. They would be sorely disappointed anyway, and I think her upper thighs are slightly too big to begin with.

    This Captain ought to spend a few more hours and calories a day fighting for Truth, justice, and the American way, rather than ranting on about movie reviews. Nice rear-ends don’t “just happen”.

    She should boycott all “camera equipment”.

    She should boycott her “automobile”, her “bicycle”, her “motorcycle”, her “electric car” and all “airplanes” ,”jetliners” and “helicopters”.

    (her commuter bus and railway system)

    She should boycott “wind turbines” and “solar panels” too.

    She should boycott anything and everything composed of “asphalt” , “concrete” and “steel”.

    She should boycott “skiing, “snow boarding”, “skate boarding”, “wake boarding “, ice skates”, and “hang gliding”.

    She should boycott the radio , the telegraph and….. the light bulb.

    She should boycott “antibiotics”, “aspirin”, and “asthma inhalers”.

    I think she needs to Boycott some major cities too….like Rome… Paris…. and New York.

    She needs to boycott “ideas” ….like “Newtons Laws”….”quantum mechanics”and the “general theory of relativity”….she should boycott the “enlightenment”, the “Areopagitica”, and , of course, the Constitution (that goes without saying).

    She must boycott Tolstoy, John Donne, Shakespeare and Sophocles…… as well as Aristotle, Plato, Thucydides..and Archimedes.

    She must Boycott the Mona Lisa, the Louvre, and the Sistine Chapel…..The Parthenon, the Pantheon, and Notre Dame Cathedral.

    She must boycott Rembrandt…..Van Gogh….and Venice….as well as Amsterdam, Prague , Madrid….and STAN LEE!

    Then….she needs to really …really …show her “stuff”….she needs to “Boycott” her ….. “CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN’S”….Now THAT is sending a “message” !

  28. I used to be a movie goer but since movies have sunk to this level, I seldom go anymore. Maybe once or twice a year now, there’s an adult type movie out – you know, the ones with a plot, acting, scenery, etc. I don’t think younger audiences could handle, “Gone With the Wind”, “Casablanca”, “Treasure of Sierra Madre”, etc. – much too cerebral for them. So that’s what the movie makers are doing, making movies their audiences can handle.

    Asperger’s whites love Super Hero stuff and comic books generally. Like little children deep into favorite fantasy, they tend not to allow any realism to interfere with their enjoyment.

    Asperger’s is very much about a state of permanent childhood, and over the past 20 years we have seen an explosion of Aspergers. So that audience will very rarely realize what it cheers is about hating its race.

    Hollywood, being the principal media fountain of anti-nature and counter-culture, is bound to continue to push this raw sewage onto the minds of the somnolent, even lobotomized infotainment consumers. No mature adult, much less self-respecting man, could possibly enjoy something like this. Contemporary Hollywood is mental coprophagia.

    Even in regard to the supernatural vocation, man and woman must both have their own distinctive paths to follow, which cannot be altered without them turning into contradictory and inorganic ways of being.

    I have already considered the way of being that corresponds eminently to man; I have also discussed the two main paths of approach to the value of “being a principle to oneself,” namely, action and contemplation. Thus, the warrior (the hero) and the ascetic represent the two fundamental types of pure virility.

    In symmetry with these types, there are also two types available to the feminine nature. A woman realizes herself as such and even rises to the same level reached by a man as warrior and ascetic only as lover and mother. These are bipartitions of the same ideal strain; just as there is an active heroism, there is also a passive heroism; there is a heroism of absolute affirmation and a heroism of absolute dedication. Julius Evola

  40. [Audiences] are not allowed enough chances to read public discourse on these films by the people that the films were made for. I do not need a 40-year-old white dude to tell me what didn’t work for him about [A] Wrinkle in Time. It wasn’t made for him. I want to know what it meant to women of color, to biracial women, to teen women of color, to teens that are biracial.

    I’m fine with this if it will be reciprocated. Every time I see some woman review a military biography or film and say its too macho or violent I feel like I’m doing endless laps in retard park.

  42. Asking Whites to stop funding their own dispossession is simply never going to happen.

    Even in the face of such obvious and repeated anti-white propaganda, asking them to “stay home” is asking too much. They won’t do it. And this movie is the perfect example of this.

    Rather than boycott the movie entirely, the “counter protest” is to instead watch some other film featuring a Strong Female Lead (Akita or Alita or some such), to prove that We Don’t Hate Women, We Just Hate Being Preached To ™.

    Ever think that maybe Whites just don’t have what it takes to compete with other races? Hollywood continually puts out such garbage, and the White fanboys continue to support it monetarily. They may do so reluctantly, but they do so, just the same.

    Because many, if not most, think that this sort of thing is not worth their attention.

    The fact that it is a comic book is what is so bad and dangerous.
    Young people are being relentlessly brainwashed to de-value white males.
    This full-spectrum brainwashing started long ago and is gathering steam.

    The reason other groups instantly raise a stink and white males let it slide – because they consider it beneath them (?) – is why this happens today:

    – Justin “Jussie” Smollett can falsely claim a racial/(so-called) ‘homophobic’ attack, and half the Chicago detective force pulls all stops to investigate, despite the fact from the get go the whole thing smelled fishy.

    I stopped reading Marvel a long time ago and although I did enjoy the X Men and some of the beginning hits of the comic franchise, I soon began to realize that Marvel, along with DC was yet another programming tool of the Jew.
    And here was me thinking that Captain Marvel was a man. Now obviously gone down the same road as Bruce Jenner.
    Interestingly I had a discussion about this, or should I say the programming within Marvel. I was speaking to my brother in law, who really doesn’t catch on. I told him that not only was Captain Marvel originally a man, but they now want to turn Thor into a female character as well. And then there was Heimdall in Thor, who happened to be portrayed by black, Idris Elba, the Nigerian who tries to pass himself off as British, along with every other black in western countries, does with that nationality.

    He said that he went to see the film about Queen Mary and Elizabeth and was shocked to see a black aid to Mary Queen of Scots and when I told him it was simply programming, teaching young children and the gullible older generations that there were ‘loads of black people in the west’ he wouldn’t accept it, stating that this isn’t about programming but about equality.

    “Know thy enemy, know thyself” as Tsun Tsu stated and this is, of course, not known by people in the west. They’ll stand there, scratching their heads, wondering why society is such the mess it is and their lives are getting worse, but the minute you mention JEW then they’re all in fits of rage, shouting anti semite, forgetting that their ancestors had the Jew marked clearly as a problem within their land.

    Hollywood along with the rest of the msm is just a colossal programming tool. No doubt this movie will have even more women, taking on men, thinking they can fight and win, only to end up in hospital with a coma or worse not at all.

    Yeah, but the tampon technology is out of the bag, so to speak. Now, if you wanted to show her what’s what, take her on an engineering tour of a P&G “feminine products” plant. Maybe a decent chunk of the people running the line will be non-white and/or female, and probably a lot in HR and the dieversity department will be.

    However, the engineers that keep the line running (something like 10 tampons per second coming out of this long complex electric/air powered computer-controlled multi-million dollar machine, and the technicians that fix them after thousands of tampons coming spewing out wrong in the seconds it takes to shut it down and minutes to restart, are gonna be your disparaged deplorable white guys.

    Sure, it can be kept running for a few days, maybe a month, without whitey, but things will be already falling slowly apart, and, well, you want to order a new machine or rebuild the plant? Who exactly in the world can possibly get this done? I know you all know the answer. I’m sure that Brie Larson does NOT know the answer and doesn’t WANT to know the answer.

    The thing is, you’d never get Miss Larson to ever get inside the plant for an engineering tour, as there is too much noise and grease and chance of getting her fingernails ripped off. It’s all very icky, but, then again, one could say the same for Miss Larson’s own feminine products.

    I’m surprised these figures are already so low, although I appreciate that the teen and young adult demographics are less white than the wider population. Perhaps the producers of this crud are correctly catering to what they see as their burgeoning market. The results for Black Panther will be interesting in this context.

    I would assume the audience figures skew markedly male – I’m surprised Kersey omitted them, perhaps they weren’t to hand – but maybe I’m mistaken here too.

    White people generally love being insulted and spat upon by people who hate them. For example, they made Oprah (“white people just have to die”) Winfrey a billionaire. They idolized Bill Cosby too. White women even still eagerly seek out OJ Simpson’s infamous company.

    This most likely occurs because whites have nothing but contempt for themselves, which causes them to identify with those who hate them. For what reason other than self-hatred would they pass laws that disadvantage their own children in favor of the children of non-whites? Why else would they give up their own freedom of association, or their own freedom of speech, in order to soothe the feelings of non-whites? They despise themselves.

    The result of a lifetime of brainwashing beginning at about age two, in which they are taught that natural humanity is sinful and offensive to God.

    If you were to act on your inborn impulses you might not turn the other cheek when offended. You might not love your neighbor as yourself. You might not sympathize with the disadvantaged. You might, heaven forbid, exhibit a tendency toward appreciation of the nature that God hath wrought.

Instead of videos from individual creators, YouTube responds with videos from Entertainment Tonight, ABC, CBS, CNN, and other news outlets first.

    Why? Because she wants to set a good example for mortal women. It sends a bad message to women if the superwoman enters the battle right away. Normal women simply have no business trying to compete with men in traditionally male areas. Instead women should build on their natural strengths as wives, home makers and mothers.

  104. I read super hero comics as a kid . I remember Captain Marvel as a white male as well as the Nick Fury character portrayed by Sam Jackson. Super hero’s are obviously for kids and although the genre is capable of great imagination it usually winds up in fist fights between men in tights . The comics medium however is capable of some really interesting work such as “From Hell” , “The Birth Caul”
    By Alan Moore , “Alec” by Eddie Campbell , “Maus” by Art Spiegelman etc.
    Regarding the bias against white males it’s just a Cowardly attempt at activism . You’re not afraid to speak “truth to power” if you denigrate white males . It’s an easy , soft target that is universally acceptable. If any prominent white man were to bark back he’d find himself accused of racism , ‘mansplaining’ and a slew of other thought crimes. Therefore, any white male in the public eye tucks tail and plays ball.

Why apologize to a group with no lobbying organization , no cohesion, no unified purpose? There’s no currency in that and no one to be accountable to.

  107. I should know better than to jump into this issue. It’s another science fiction comic book movie. The real problem is that the last several generations think that the arguments in the comic book world of mutants has some veracity.

    But on he matter of captain marvel, it’s a legacy story. While the first captain was male, there have been several females who have held that post. Though I think the current captain is once again a male.

    What I find odd about white women complaining about “white male privilige” is that the supposed privilige has been used largely on the behest of white women in the social construction of fear of black men. The scenario is such that black men remain the primary targets of the society. Whether the shooters are white women, white men, black women, brown women and brown men, yellow women and yellow men . . .

    This white woman is probably not going to date a black man. No despite her complaining she is going to gravitate to the circles that bet her sensibilities and loyalties — white men and most likely if different, black is low on that list. Think of Miss Bullock, she adopts a black male child, but she hangs with a foreign brown skinned hispanic guy. Now look, women can date whomever they so desire. But the refrain about “white men” by way of complaint has been around since at least 1990 , when it came to my attention by way of teacher lecturing about black men about discrimination by men — I have to say, it was a very weird scene. But it reflects that women’s complaints are not really about fairness, but power and opportunity to get, maintain an d exploit power.

    Because in my mind no woman who comprehends the society she lives in here in the US would ever make references to white male power without at least a “blush” at the knowledge that she has been part, parcel and more often than cause to white men exercising their will on behalf of white women.

    In other words, white women bear no less guilt than their white male counter parts for the disposition of power distribution which has by and large been to the benefit of white women.

    Which of course explains a good deal about how policies meant to redress tangible discrimination against blacks in general have been hijacked to the benefit of white men. The same white women who in turn end up as partners of “still” power priviliged white men — think, Speaker Mrs. Nancy Pelosi or in keeping with the Hollywood dynamic

This is a difficult time for boys. Boys have been a little taller and and a little heavier than the girls in their school classrooms but now suddenly the girls are bigger. Gasp! How humiliating. They – if they were normal and mentally healthy – had survived the realization that girls were usually better in school. But at least they were bigger and stronger than girls but no longer. Just as they were getting ready to become a man suddenly the damn girls were bigger.

    What to do? One outlet was the comic book. The first superhero comic book hero was Superman. That was 1938. But the very next year Captain Marvel appeared and he was even better for the 13 year old boy who was insecure about his masculinity. Captain Marvel was himself a weak little boy named Billy Bascom. But when he said the magic word “SHAZAM” he transformed into a big muscular guy in a costume who had all sorts of super powers.

    This trope has continued ever since. Bruce Banniker – a wimpy guy who is often picked on by bullies undergoes a full body erection and becomes the invincible Hulk. If like me you were little and weak in Junior High and constantly being picked on by the school bullies – this sort of fantasy transformation was very comforting. But I outgrew my tormentors becoming 6’4″ and about 240 lbs by my high school graduation. No one picked on me anymore and I lost interest in comic books.

    Notice that comic book heroes almost never shoot anyone or hit them with a blunt object. Normally they punch the bad guy in the nose. This is pure 13 year old boy thinking.

    So how do you explain the success of Wonder Woman? Easy – Wonder Woman was never a big comic. It was always a minor offering. She had a brief period in the sixties on TV but girls aren’t really interested in punching out villains. Wonder Woman held no attraction for the main stream comic market – 13 year old boys.

    Making Captain Marvel into a girl ensures that this new version will also fail. In the forties Captain Marvel was the leading comic book hero. Superman only ascended to the top spot by suing the publisher’s of Captain Marvel for stealing their idea. On the newsstand Captain Marvel had always beat Superman because his legend resonated closer to the psychic needs of 13 year old boys and the men who were trying to relive those years.

    Some amendments:

    ” But the refrain about “white men” by way of complaint has been around since at least 1990 , when it came to my attention by way of a white female teacher lecturing black male (professional) about discrimination by men — I have to say, it was a very weird scene.

    “Which of course explains a good deal about how policies meant to redress tangible discrimination against blacks in general have been hijacked to the benefit of white men and white women. ”

    side note:

    I have no issues watching fine toned women about thrashing about anyone. Ms. Sandahl Bergman, Miss Robbin Wright, Miss Lisa Loven Kongsli, Miss Ann Ogbomo, Mrs Corinna Everson and a host of others still give me goose bumps, it’s movie. I like movies.

I see a big flop however from a propaganda view point just the headline of a female Captain America reenforces the absurd notion that men and women compete physically. There is an agenda here.

    Dude. It’s a movie.

    Virtually no one is obsessed with this being the downfall of Western Civilization.

    That’s exactly what I am saying! So your quarrel is not with me, it is with the author of this article.

  131. HallParvey: “The result of a lifetime of brainwashing beginning at about age two, in which they are taught that natural humanity is sinful and offensive to God.

    […]

    Your natural impulses must be attenuated and perverted so that you can better appreciate deviancy in all it’s splendor. This is the way normal things are in the civilized world we live in today. ”

    You mention God and civilization as involved in causing this white masochism, and I think you are on to something there. The civilizational process has defanged the white man, and his Christian beliefs have been an integral part of this. I can’t completely place the blame on Christianity though, since self-described Christians at other stages of the civilizational process have been comfortable with genocide. But there is something in technological civilization that requires the elimination of violent responses, as the more technologically developed a civilization becomes, the more its citizenry must sacrifice its freedom to respond in barbaric ways to order and efficiency. I see whites “giving up” as part of this civilizational process since, as the ones with most of the power and wealth, they must necessarily give some of it up in order to bring non-whites into their system. That’s the aspiration anyway. Whether it can be done or not, or whether the enterprise is worthwhile, is a matter of opinion. Soi-disant “race realists” suggest that negroes, in particular, may not be suitable material for a technological civilization. But the hope is that, one way or another, the thing can be done. So this white masochism I’ve described is actually an expression of the white man’s civilizational confidence. He thinks that since becoming civilized defanged him, it eventually will do so for all non-whites. It’s the white man’s delusion or vision, as the case may be. He thinks that lurking within the breast of every non-white is a white person struggling to come out; that all are equal and that race is only an illusion. Only the future will tell if this is a brilliant insight, or a racially suicidal idiocy.

    Also, check out videos by The Quartering (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfwE_ODI1YTbdjkzuSi1Nag)

    and “Geeks and Gamers”

    The analysis from these folks would suggest that the only reason Captain Marvel will do as well as it does (which I suspect that ticket sales will cool down a lot after it’s opening weekend) is because the movie is riding on the fumes of the prior MCU films which have done spectacularly. Most fans, being normies, weren’t too familiar with the controversy surrounding this movie before they bought their tickets. Lot’s of these tickets were advanced sales. Fandango actually took down other movies on their site for Captain Marvel’s opening night, and Disney is not offering refunds for those tickets. Disney is making these sales by hook or crook.

    I guarantee you the drop in ticket sales next weekend in comparison with opening weekend will be the largest drop of all the MCU films by far. Watch China very closely. I’ll be surprised if the film makes it past 2 weeks there. White guys are no different other than we aren’t getting any sanctioned support for our feelings about these issues.

In return, the military gets a very favorable (and unrealistic) portrayal in the film, which enhances enlistment rates, public opinion, etc.

    Tora Tora Tora is as good as we will ever see. However the Japanese pilot Fuchida and American historian Gordon Prange introduced the “Myth” of the idea of the Japanese doing a “Third Wave” or more accurately a “Second Strike’ on the Oil Tank Farms and Shops and it wound up in that movie . That NEVER happened , it was not contemplated after or planned for before, nor was it discussed by the Japanese Staff and Adm. Nagumo or by Fuchiuda when the Japanese returned from their 1st Strike “raid”.

    Actual conditions and time would have prevented it anyway , The ‘First Strike” landed too late to launch a second strike that could have returned to the Japanese carriers before dark, which would have been a disaster. Also after the “first strike returned” the sea condition became too rough for the Japanese to have been able to launch such a strike in the first place, it was already getting rough when they returned.

    As well, the Japanese simply did not have enough serviceable planes to carry enough bombs to hit and destroy all the oil tanks and/or the shops in the first place if they had launched a second strike, And they would have run into much more Anti-aircraft fire if they had done so. Best they might have done was destroy a few , damage a few , and the US had 37 IIRC huge oil tanks.
    Besides ,The US had more than enough tankers in the Pacific and West Coast to replace and use as storage to supply the US fleet , making up for that impossibility if ALL the oil tanks had been destroyed and still have tankers to ship oil out to Hawaii.

    What this collection of studies shows is that there is more to swearing than simply causing offence, or a lack of verbal hygiene. Language is a sophisticated toolkit, and swearing is a part of it.

    Unsurprisingly, many of the final words of pilots killed in air-crashes captured on the ‘black box’ flight recorder feature swearing. And this emphasises a crucial point, that swearing must be important given its prominence in matters of life and death.

    The fact is that the size of your vocabulary of swear words is linked with your overall vocabulary, and swearing is inextricably linked to the experience and expression of feelings and emotions

    I don’t think you have a clue and while my politics and that of Hollywood are usually light years away. The bizarre tactic of referring to every woman as some manner of male or vice versa is “off the wall” and beyond silly.

    Sure there are men and women who have some misguided idea that their bodies have betrayed their minds or vice versa. It’s a sad day when an entire industry has taken advantage of people’s intrapersonal struggles.

    But make female dynamics has been in operation for several million years. More than 98% of the men on this planet desire to remain men and will operate the same. More than 98% of the women on this planet desire to remain women and will operate the same. The planet will continue to roll out the struggle between men and women — negotiating out their relations. But male and women are going to remain drawn together by an innate biological forces and those forces will continue to out boys and girls who will 98% plus engage in the same.

    Now if you have a case to make about any of the women I referenced — make it. There’s no shortage of ignorant and shallow souls who would love to discover some untoward reality about me and this tactic is as naked as you are.

    I don’t get involved with anyone claiming to be a woman who are not also born with a uterus. Now it is entirely possible for men to be mislead by appearances — nothing new in that. Now should you think any of these women have misled — make your case.

    You clearly missed the point of not only my reply but more importantly the very reason behind putting Idris Elba to play the part of Heimdall.
    To even quote from the Jewish Wikipedia this is what it has to state about Heimdall:

    “In Norse mythology, Heimdallr is a god who possesses the resounding horn Gjallarhorn, owns the golden-maned horse Gulltoppr, is called the shining god and the whitest of the gods”

    To put in a black man, is an affront to Norse mythology, especially when Heimdall was stated to be the ‘whitest’ of all the Gods of the Germanic Pantheon.

    Wakanda, on the other hand is Hollywood rubbish. Most African nations have no mythology because they never invented how to record their history, courtesy of low IQ, not having the foresight that it might actually be worth something in the future. Hollywood is, courtesy of Jewish hatred of whites, doing its best to reinvent the black man as this super hero of modern times, ignoring the fact that 3% of the US population (black 14-35 year olds) is committing over 50% of the crime.
    And here in the UK, three men were stabbed in a Birmingham nighclub. The paper refuses to state the colour of the vicitms and perpetrators, but you can bet 95% they’re black or Asian (Muslim). More so, the Metro paper ran this story with an image of a WHITE MAN brandishing a knife, when 99% of all knife crime in the UK is overwhelmingly black on black/white.

    It’s another mind game by the Jews, showing how incredibly easily they can change not only the perceptions of non Jews, but rewrite their history and ancestry, placing blacks and other peoples, not of their lands into their histories.
    I’m simply amazed that you thought you’d poke fun at this.
    And to finish, there was a popular show here in the UK, called the Black and White Minstrel Showwhere whites blackened their skin, sang and danced. This was, courtesy of Jewish lobbying of Parliament, deemed offensive to blacks and most certainly was the start of the whole rigmarole of cultural appropriation and offensive behaviour. It was the beginning of political correctness in the UK. And so with that, do they care that white people may find it offensive to put blacks in historical roles they never were in and portraying legendary iconic figures, such as Heimdall?

    This is far deeper that simply giving someone a part in a program/play/film. It’s about indoctrinating the younger generations to accept that there isn’t such a thing as nation. This will then bring about the destruction of ancestry and mythology as it will be offensive to the peoples, living in that land, who are not part of it. And voila – communism and the demolition of history in order to bring about a New World Order.

    You’re either incredibly ignorant of what’s going on around you, or you’re simply a hasbarat troll. I’m not sure which and quite frankly couldn’t care less. I’ll just ignore you, as I do others on this forum.

    *The Lynda Carter Wonder Woman series aired from 1977-79, not in the 1960’s. It’s actually being re-run on Me-TV.

    *The current Captain Marvel is a completely different character from the Fawcett character of the 1940’s. When Fawcett comics went out of business, the “Captain Marvel” trademark eventually lapsed. Marvel comics eventually realized this and created there own version of Captain Marvel; an Alien spy named Mar-Vell who turns on his superiors and aligns with Earth. He died in a comic in 1982. The current Captain Marvel depicted in the movie is based on the character of Carol Danvers. Danvers was originally a supporting character of Mar-Vell’s who became a superhero named Ms. Marvel in 1977. She was renamed Captain Marvel a few years back. Like I said, nothing to do with the DC/Fawcett Captain Marvel (now known as “Shazam”).

    On the surface of it you are right, but culture and entertainment are used to shape society. Creators try to conform to the prevalent social paradigm so as to be able to sell their products, and unless they do so themselves, consciously or not, someone comes along to remind them.

    There is considerable evidence that the CIA and others meddle in culture, as published in this book “The Cultural Cold War: The CIA and the World of Arts and Letters” by Frances Stonor Saunders.

    I am now positive you have no idea what you are talking about.

    And why in the world you are referring to as miss anyone is beyond me. Mrs Meryl Gummer is professionally known as Meryl Streep — hence the reference to Mrs Meryl Gummer, her married name in traditional circles.

    Your references make absolutely no sense.

    Charlie’s Angel’s are all women whether one is referring to the TV series or the film series.

    As for the woman whose image I am unfamiliar with as noted. I fail the reference. Unless you are attempting to bolster your original comments about one of the five women I originally noted as female and you are making a claim that she is male is proof in the photo.

    Now let;s suppose you are correct of the women I noted, you found one that was born uterusless (or wish to abandon the uterus they have), your conclusion is that your record of one in five still fails the test of making your argument that all five are are in some crossover identity crisis and therefore I must be attracted to someone of the same sex — based on this shallow superficial accounting you are dreaming up. Ohh wait a minute it’s not 20% it’s a success rate of 6.2% when referencing all the women in question. That in essence means, on just a superficial level 93.7% percent of the women are in fact women to your attempt to make the same an indication of some perverse twist.

    You remind me of the kinds of responses one gets in jr. high when left with nothing of value to say. And never was there any suggestion of anyone emmulating anyone else —

    I will take my 1 out of five or my 1 out of 16 over your nonsensical nonsequitor herring response — any day.

    good grief.

    You’ll have to do better than that to support change of subject you are attempting. Which is women have been in the role of heroes, and super heroes for a long time in movies and it’s quite nice looking at attractive women on screen.

    This is Hollywood and you’re confusing it with Germanic/Norse mythology.

    “Wakanda is “Hollywood Rubbish.””

    Yes it is.

    You are unable to differentiate from the two and having read By-Tor’s reply, who believes you’re an American Negro, then it’s understandable why, although the usage of the word ‘sport’ is off putting, as that’s a term normally used by Australians.
    If you are black then your nonchalant attitude to the subject is completely understandable. There’s a 99% chance you’re a slave, meaning you haven’t a clue as to where in Africa you’re from. This means, as a black man, you HAVE no mythology of note as other people’s on this planet have and therefore cannot relate to how it binds a culture and its people together.

    However, as stated, the ‘sport’ usage threw me, which really only goes makes me believe that you are, in fact, Australian, leaning towards the left and most probably a kikel, here on this forum to ‘ruffle up some feathers’, as the hasbarat troll that I’m thinking you are.

    The woman in reference is mighty fine actress. I don’t get “schmoozy” out of all of her performances but when she is on screen she has earned her chops in spades.

    We agree, the Marvel comic book characters are not historical figures. Not sure where you got the idea I disagreed with you there. Alexander Hamilton is, however, an historical figure. Greeks and Romans were historical figures. Blacks routinely play Romans or Greeks in plays and movies. There are no riots when this happens, it just bothers people. If a White guy plays Othello, a Moor, not a Negro,and not a real historical figure, your homies are jumping up and down, burning down gas stations. But, obviously, you’re not one of those guys. You got out of your black neighborhood and live in either a White or White-Hispanic mixed neighborhood now and feel a bit safer. Good for you.

    Hispanic immigrants are absolutely ruining the movies. They were just 14% or so of the population when the Star Wars prequels came out but around 25% of the moviegoers for those films. You’ll notice that the demographics for these Marvel superhero movies skew less than the white share of the population and much less than the white share of the disposable income. There is a segment of whites who are getting sick of this. But Hollywood is catering to the lowest common denominator now; hence, movies are poorly written garbage and thoroughly unoriginal. They don’t have to be well written or even make sense anymore. Just put in some ‘splosions and the masses love it. Same with video games – endless iterations of low IQ first person shooters where people mindlessly run around and shoot stuff. Except in that industry, there has been a push back from the high IQ Asian and White crowds, leading to the massive success of a slew of original single player games. Hopefully, the Chinese movie industry matures and they are able to export to us some higher quality material, because this is killing me.

And it has been this way since the silent movie era. The “why” is the interesting part of this, but let me tell you, you are not ready.

    The thing that you really do not get, will not get and probably can not get, is that, yes, for the last decade or two, there has been anti-white male programing from CIA-Hollywood, but that any negative propaganda that white-males have received is but a trickle from a faucet compared to what black males have received in this country for over 300 years now; yes, before it was a country.

    I used to tease my college students who wanted certain that I could be bribed but the bribe would include court costs and after trial living expenses, because undoubtedly someone would speak out of turn blowing the whole mess.

    I’m 100% sure God is fictional, unless it’s some kind of AI who’s simulating us.

    Oh so you believe in a human typing your whole existence into being on a Imac, but not a supernatural being doing it?

    No, I mean a godlike AI with an enormous amount of computing power, which is actually plausible with the laws of physics.

    OK, great.

    Does Karl Diebitsch get a credit for costuming?

  241. @Truth

    No, I don’t believe in it. I’m saying it’s plausible some kind of super-intelligent entity made from tech is out there. The God from the Bible doesn’t seem super-intelligent.

    I have no problem with what people believe. But I have a problem with the kinds of fucked-up things people do that belief leads to.

    This has gone on long enough now. Au revoir and take care.

    What exactly is the term for someone who’s racist against their own race like this idiot Brie?

    Another anti-White movie, funded and produced by Leftist Whites in an effort to Virtue Signal and say ‘I’m not really white”. Idiocy was never so deep and systemic.

  247. More cinematic trash from Hollywood Disney/Marvel. Old white guy here just saying I will not waste 2+ hours of my life or $$ ever and they can’t take that to the bank!

    SOS = same old $#!t different day, the superhero and star wars, Jason Bourne, James Bond films have blown their wads. Last decent movie I saw was Alpha, that’s it for the year. We have 4 theaters in our rural area, and their is nothing worth seeing and my list of blacklisted/boycott actors and directors is now pages long. Like my Dad told me decades ago, vote with you wallet and your feet!

    Count me out.
    The last Iron Man CD I watched with my wife and 17 year old son was trashed due to the cheap sexual overtones.

    We have no intention of wasting money on this movie (sic).

  249. Bring back the vintage comic-book characters.

    Giving weird racial-economic ‘advice’ to Hollywood accountants is weird and sad.

    Corporate slop not pandering to you? Hurray – it’s all Hollywood garbage anyway. Let RLM wrestle with the pigs, it’s their job.

    Nine Inch Nails + Marvel + Feminism Air Force?
    No thanks.
