A friend says that Adam Sandler is a great guy who keeps half his high school senior class employed working on his many movies.

So upscale audiences should appreciate when Sandler occasionally makes a film aimed at the upper third of audiences, such as his rom-coms The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, and his upscale dramas Punch Drunk Love, Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (in which the first ten minutes of Sandler driving around the block looking for a parking place is a Tarantino-level exercise in star power), and Uncut Gems.

Sandler’s new Netflix film Hustle is a terrific sports movie in which he plays an international scout for the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers in an intelligent script about an interesting situation.

Sandler tells all time great American actor-nonagenarian Robert Duvall

as the team owner that the 7-foot German kid he’s been scouting, contrary to his scion Ben Foster, isn’t quite the next Dirk Nowitzki.

So Duvall, appreciating Sandler’s honesty, promotes Sandler from scout to 76ers assistant coach for standing up to his son, finally letting the ex-Temple U. player live at home in Philadelphia after 9 years of missing his daughter’s birthday, saving his marriage to Queen Latifah.

But then the ancient (but still awesome) Duvall drops dead, so new owner Foster sends Sandler back on the road to Europe to find the 76ers a cheap solution.

Sandler stumbles upon a 6′-9″ Spanish construction worker, (played by charismatic NBA journeyman Juancho Hernangómez), whose career path to the NBA was disarrayed by knocking up his girlfriend at 15 and then he beat up her next boyfriend at 19.

Like Burgess Meredith in another Philadelphia sports movie, Sandler bets his career on the slightly awkward white guy.

Sports movies are the most distinct genre.

  1. Sandler tells all time great American actor-nonagenarian Robert Duvall …

    I’m a bit surprised to realize that Robert Duvall was 48 years old when he played Colonel Kilgore in Apocalypse Now. I thought he was in his thirties in that movie.

  2. Sports movies are the most distinct genre.

    Rough-looking cast! Where the fly hos at? Looks like almost all the characters are reject Dwarves and Orcs from Middle Earf.

  4. Question 1. Why TF would anyone want to live in Philadelphia (Official motto: “Even the White people suck here”)?

    Question 2. Why TF would any White (((yeah, yeah, I know)))) man want to marry Queen Latifah? Hell, why would any man?

    Humble plea: And there’s supposed to be a kid from this unholy union? Oy vey iz mir! I don’t want to see a picture of what Hollywood thinks the hellspawn of Adam Sandler and Queen Latifah would look like. I’ve no doubt that I’ve taken dumps that were better looking.

  6. Sandler is interesting. He has made some decent movies 20 plus years ago. But most of what he’s done since has been absolute garbage. His remake of The Longest Yard (the original title – All Non Jewish White Man Are Racist Redneck Bigots was changed at the last minute) was pure ego service combined with negro worship. The ultimate message being – Jew hero leads black forces against the evil white man. It was a total betrayal of the original film. (Burt Reynolds at least played football – he was recruited to play RB at Florida State and was very good until he blew his knees up.) The Waterboy (Jew retard helps Jew head coach win the big game against racist southern redneck opponents, gets the shiksa at the end) was at least amusing in its own way but still, what is it with Jews’ need to shit on the rural south at every opportunity? I guess it just never gets old to them.

    Like so many other SNL alums – Farrell, Farely, Spade, Schneider, etc – he basically plays the same character deployed into a different setting and let the hilarity ensue! It got old decades ago.

    '...what is it with Jews’ need to shit on the rural south at every opportunity? '

    That is an excellent question. Is it the rampant religiosity? The admission that violence sometimes has a place in life?

    Maybe all those Eastern European Jews came over here with their culturally-determined hatred of the Slavic peasant and decided Southern whites were our Slavic peasants? It all turned into a self-fulfilling prophesy. The ADL and the Leo Frank trial. The Freedom Riders. School integration.

    I wonder how many of these people have ever visited the South? Nice place, at least as far as the white people go.

    , @Mr. Anon
    @Mike Tre

    Don't Mess with the Zohan was in a similar vein. Jews and Arabs can patch up their differences by joining together against the hated white gentile to make a home for themselves in America, which of course, rightfully belongs to all the Statue of Liberty (SOL) people, not to the people whose ancestors founded the country. It was occasionally funny (I especially liked the a**hole real-estate developer showing off a model of his latest building, followed by a model of his latest super-model girlfriend), but ultimately offensive to anybody whose ancestors were from west of the Levant.

    That said, I've thought Sandler wasn't bad in some of his movies, like Just Go With It which was a remake of the old Walter Matthau / Goldie Hawn / Ingrid Bergman movie Cactus Flower. I could see him as a good serious actor.

When Sandler was filming Grownups 2 I could not avoid the production at all; primary filming was done in my girlfriend’s hometown and I even came across THE SHAQ at my local grocery store. The only star people were meh on was Kevin James.

    I loved his movies as a kid but Uncut Gems was the first I enjoyed as an adult not dependent on nostalgia. Though I have to say his netflix mystery flick with Jennifer Aniston wasn’t too bad.

    Indeed. Im proud to say I haven’t watched Adam Sandler since SNL. Ultimately, he’s just too jewey for me. Good for him that others can deal with him. He’s just not for me.

    As plots go, Adam Sandler, marrying a buffed down former urban street rat Queen Latina, "buried the lede," unless the plot indicates his parents died in a fiery crash when he turned 18.

    A flashback of Adam showing his mother his engagement ring, and mother falling backwards into an easy chair while clutching her heart, while asking Adam why he was so interested in killing his father would have sufficed as an alternative, I guess.

    In any case, I automatically tune out unlikely interracial scenarios treated as an everyday occurance to be taken for granted, whether in commercials or any other media. I consider it a kind of perverse "white noise." Like the screams you might hear, along with arms reaching out for you through the air holes of the locked patient dorm rooms. while walking through the corridors of a poorly managed mental hospital.

    Btw, as a comedic device, it would have been hilarious if Adam had been forced to contend with an extremely tall African basketball recruit, who couldn’t hit a hoop if his life depended on it.

    That would be a comedic scenario too terrifying for poor Adam. Incompetence is for goyem!
  16. Stanley Sugarman is a great name. Looks like this will be the first movie I see since Uncut Gems.

    If you want to know who really loves you (Sandler’s love for both blacks and Jews is evident in his pictures) look at who isn’t afraid to see you as you are and portray you faithfully.

    As far as her casting in this movie goes, I don't care what she is besides a big, black woman.

    IIRC, WM/BF mixed-race marriages are statistically uncommon in the US. Therefore this [mis]match isn't even an attempt to portray a typical, if fictional, American family. It's more leftist proselytizing.

    I think there’s a Ben Franklin quote on that topic.
     
    Franklin's advice on ugly old women:

    “In all your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. You call this a Paradox, and demand my Reasons. They are these:

    1. Because as they have more Knowledge of the World and their Minds are better stor’d with Observations, their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreable.

    2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Men, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a 1000 Services small and great, and are the most tender and useful of all Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an old Woman who is not a good Woman.

    3. Because there is no hazard of Children, which irregularly produc’d may be attended with much Inconvenience.

    4. Because thro’ more Experience, they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your Reputation. And with regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be rather inclin’d to excuse an old Woman who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his Manners by her good Counsels, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes.

    5. Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower Parts continuing to the last as plump as ever: So that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old from a young one. And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement.

    6. Because the Sin is less. The debauching a Virgin may be her Ruin, and make her for Life unhappy.

    7. Because the Compunction is less. The having made a young Girl miserable may give you frequent bitter Reflections; none of which can attend the making an old Woman happy.

    8thly and Lastly They are so grateful!!”

  19. Sandler had a semi-comedy a few years back where he played an Israeli super agent who’s forced to flee to NYC and go into hiding.

    I kid you not, the plot of the movie was that mean WASP real estate developers – in NYC, mind you – were trying kick out or buy out Palestinian shopkeepers. So, Jews and Palestinians banded together to fight back against the WASPs.

    That’s the level of self-delusion that we’re dealing with.

    @Citizen of a Silly Country

    That is the perfect nutshelling of the Sailerism that generally, nonwhites have a strong, persistent tendency to dishonest hatred of whites, manifesting in ridiculous accusations, not from jealousy or a plan to take over, but because they are over-applying the ancient Old World tradition of protecting in-group preference regardless of the facts. Or, "he's not guilty, he's my co-ethnic; anyway, I saw you steal the cookies with your white devil hands." The joke is that this is applied brainlessly and automatically (it's been a standard behavior for millenia). If there were some fourth party from which Jews felt further removed than whites, then Jews would apply this thing to whites and against the fourth group.

  22. If true, the story about Sandler employing former classmates is endearing. He is still a terrible actor though. ‘Uncut Gems’ was dreck.

  23. “Sports movies are the most distinct genre.”

    You’re the film cricket; I’ll take your word. Sport itself, setting aside its cultural significance, is rather banal. Bored, my mind wandered in the trenches, only the blitzing linebacker or defensive back awoke me from my daydream. But I was always johnny-on-the-spot to lend a helping hand to get the gloryboy QB back on his feet. So the characters in a sports film and the internal dynamics betwixt them have to sparkle to catch the attention of a sophisticated bloke like me.

    I’ve always been a bit mystified by Sailer’s takes on movies, since right wing film buffs tend to have good taste in movies and provide trenchant critiques of them.

    I have found the complete opposite to be true.

    I'd trust the opinion of someone apolitical over a conservative.

    All across America are Christian conservatives that bemoan Hollywood movies in one sentence and in the next tell you about some crass movie they watched.

    I had some conservative relatives that told me about some awful movie they watched in the theater where a chick has sex with an alien. Well that was in the reviews and no one forced you to sit through the whole thing. I sometimes feel like the only person that will walk on movies. Everyone else sits to the very end. Are you tied to the chair?

    There are a lot of complaints here about Jews and Hollywood yet conservatives everywhere keep plopping down money for premium showings. Just look at the current listings. Mostly horror and that god awful looking Black Adam. But I guarantee that my local theater will be packed this Friday. A bunch of conservatives will talk the next day about what they found offensive in a horror movie.

    These conservatives can't even wait for Red Box. The ticket sales are what feed Hollywood and Mr. Conservative America has made it clear that he will take his wife or girlfriend to Stabbin' Nuns 7 and then get online the next day to complain about Hollywood values.

    Sandler is interesting. He has made some decent movies 20 plus years ago. But most of what he's done since has been absolute garbage. His remake of The Longest Yard (the original title - All Non Jewish White Man Are Racist Redneck Bigots was changed at the last minute) was pure ego service combined with negro worship. The ultimate message being - Jew hero leads black forces against the evil white man. It was a total betrayal of the original film. (Burt Reynolds at least played football - he was recruited to play RB at Florida State and was very good until he blew his knees up.) The Waterboy (Jew retard helps Jew head coach win the big game against racist southern redneck opponents, gets the shiksa at the end) was at least amusing in its own way but still, what is it with Jews' need to shit on the rural south at every opportunity? I guess it just never gets old to them.

    Like so many other SNL alums - Farrell, Farely, Spade, Schneider, etc - he basically plays the same character deployed into a different setting and let the hilarity ensue! It got old decades ago.

    That is an excellent question. Is it the rampant religiosity? The admission that violence sometimes has a place in life?

    Maybe all those Eastern European Jews came over here with their culturally-determined hatred of the Slavic peasant and decided Southern whites were our Slavic peasants? It all turned into a self-fulfilling prophesy. The ADL and the Leo Frank trial. The Freedom Riders. School integration.

    I think there’s a Ben Franklin quote on that topic.

    Franklin’s advice on ugly old women:

    “In all your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. You call this a Paradox, and demand my Reasons. They are these:

    1. Because as they have more Knowledge of the World and their Minds are better stor’d with Observations, their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreable.

    2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Men, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a 1000 Services small and great, and are the most tender and useful of all Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an old Woman who is not a good Woman.

    3. Because there is no hazard of Children, which irregularly produc’d may be attended with much Inconvenience.

    4. Because thro’ more Experience, they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your Reputation. And with regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be rather inclin’d to excuse an old Woman who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his Manners by her good Counsels, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes.

    5. Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower Parts continuing to the last as plump as ever: So that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old from a young one. And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement.

    6. Because the Sin is less. The debauching a Virgin may be her Ruin, and make her for Life unhappy.

    7. Because the Compunction is less. The having made a young Girl miserable may give you frequent bitter Reflections; none of which can attend the making an old Woman happy.

    8thly and Lastly They are so grateful!!”

    Don’t Mess with the Zohan was in a similar vein. Jews and Arabs can patch up their differences by joining together against the hated white gentile to make a home for themselves in America, which of course, rightfully belongs to all the Statue of Liberty (SOL) people, not to the people whose ancestors founded the country. It was occasionally funny (I especially liked the a**hole real-estate developer showing off a model of his latest building, followed by a model of his latest super-model girlfriend), but ultimately offensive to anybody whose ancestors were from west of the Levant.

    That said, I’ve thought Sandler wasn’t bad in some of his movies, like Just Go With It which was a remake of the old Walter Matthau / Goldie Hawn / Ingrid Bergman movie Cactus Flower. I could see him as a good serious actor.

    I remember an essay at the time pointing out that movies about Israelis by American Jews (the other example was Spielberg's Munich) apparently see the ideal happy ending as the Israelis moving to the US. At the same time there was a third big movie (not specifically Israeli) about Israeli secret agents in which the Israelis remain in Israel. It may reflect some of the weird love/hate relationship American and Israeli Jews have with each other.

    Sandler, interestingly, has never visited Israel in his life. (He's fifty-six years old; Zohan had some background shots of Tel Aviv at the beginning but was otherwise not shot in the country.)

    Farrell's never been funny, he's thoroughly in the millennial style of registering awkwardness rather than actually making a joke. It is possible that he cannot be funny.

    Sandler's unapologetically silly musical comedy in the Second Golden Era of SNL is one of the funniest, best-aging, and memorable things about that fantastic run. He can be funny whenever he wants to be, he just has better things to do now.
    Eddie Murphy is hilarious when he wants to be but insists on obsessing over flatulence jokes, which is a genuine shame. Invocations of body nervousness are not jokes, they're a cheat using Reichian armor to substitute for genuine laughter. I recently saw Pluto Nash and, dumb as it is, it has its moments, and most of all a sadness because it definitely belongs in that 1980s moment when blacks still thought of themselves as Americans rather than as something else.

    Your post caught my attention because I've never heard of this Will Ferrell, yet you claim he's a huge name in comedy. Well, I wouldn't know, because I'm not into comedy, neither movies (although they're okay, I just seldom seek them out) nor, especially, ever, stand-up. But I looked him up anyway, and wow, that guy's been in a lot of movies - and I haven't seen or even heard of a single one of them, except Austin Powers, which I'm not even sure I ever watched from start to finish. I don't think I've ever seen his face before either.

    Maybe it shows how culturally divergent things have gotten. Twenty, thirty years ago, it would be weird for someone who is (I hope!) generally "normal," and into movies and sports and music and stuff (as I still am) to never have heard of or been able to recognize an actor commonly regarded as a "big name."

  59. Sandler’s friend Jonathan Loughran, who i believe was originally hired as muscle, is in many of his films. He was the crazy eyed linebacker in “Waterboy” and the guy in a Sixers jersey in “Anger Management.”

    Jonathan Loughran’s great uncle was Light Heavyweight Champ and Hall of Famer Tommy Loughran, the “Phantom of Philly.” His career spanned from 11919-1937. He was a hero to my dad and I heard all about him as a child.

    The problem is that, outside the U.S.A, most people simply don’t believe that they can do well in life in a capitalist market system. The vast majority of peoplein the World look at top businesmen and they don’t believe that they have their characteristics, which are needed to won in this system: a hard-charging personality, quasi-sociopathic levels of ruthlessness, emotional detachcment from concepts such as loyalty to family and communisty, and intensely covetting the fruits of the labor of other people. Then, there is smarts and energy. While most Captains of Industry are not rocket scientists or ultra-marathoners, they do tend to be bright, energetic fellows who are callous enough to put that energy and smarts at the service of taking possesion of the fruits of the labor of other people. Modern slavery *does* exist: we just call it revenues or profits.

    Outside the U.S.A, pro-market policies are only adopted if they are backed up by dictatorships.or de facto dictatorships. Chile under Augusto Pinochet and Nigeria today are examples of this. Cingapure is another good example.

    And don’t try to make this a “race” thing because there are very, very few Brazilians that would qualify as what Americans call “white”. It’s really about the rich Vs poor.

    The U.S.A is the *only* country in the World where a politician can actually get elected on the platform of giving tax cuts to Plutocrats. Imagine how stupid you have to be. You are living in squal;or, you have no future prospects, and yet you vote for a politician that tells you flat out that he won’t do anything for you or your loved ones, but will give tax cuts to the Wall Street broker making 100M a year on dividends alone.

    Latin America is going Red(again), Europe is going hardcore right-wing and most of Asia are semi-dictatorships. What does that tell you? It means that “classic” liberalism is dying. This is not supruising since liberalism is such an odd duck in Human History, something that only truly appeals to Danes, Dutchmen, Scandinavians and northern Germans and their genetic descendents in the British Isles, New England and places like Minessota.

    It seems like the future of the World is to be divided by right-wing and left-wing populist dictatorships, with liberalism surviving in a niche stronghold made of Holland, Denmark, Sweden, New York city and Massachusetts.

    “If the South had won, the U.S would basically have become a larger version of Uruguay.”

    First, the US would have been states north of Virginia and whatever western states the US could win over likely competitors such as the confederacy. There’s little reason to assume the North and South could not eventually resume some sort of trading pact. Depending on immigration policies the two nations would reflect the qualities of their demographics just as nations do today.

    Additionally, you are underestimating the desirability of Uruguay.

    Sandler’s unapologetically silly musical comedy in the Second Golden Era of SNL is one of the funniest, best-aging, and memorable things about that fantastic run. He can be funny whenever he wants to be, he just has better things to do now.
    Eddie Murphy is hilarious when he wants to be but insists on obsessing over flatulence jokes, which is a genuine shame. Invocations of body nervousness are not jokes, they’re a cheat using Reichian armor to substitute for genuine laughter.

    Off-topic, but right-wqing conservatism has just been dealt a huge blow today as Bolsonaro, the Brazilian President, has been defeated by socialist and former President, Lula da Silva, in the sercond round of the Presidential Election.

    The thing is that, outside the U.S.A, capitalism is really unpopular. Even Bolsonaro only won because of the massive misdeeds of the former socialist government, and he won mostly on a religious/nationalistic platform.

    The problem is that, outside the U.S.A, most people simply don't believe that they can do well in life in a capitalist market system. The vast majority of peoplein the World look at top businesmen and they don't believe that they have their characteristics, which are needed to won in this system: a hard-charging personality, quasi-sociopathic levels of ruthlessness, emotional detachcment from concepts such as loyalty to family and communisty, and intensely covetting the fruits of the labor of other people. Then, there is smarts and energy. While most Captains of Industry are not rocket scientists or ultra-marathoners, they do tend to be bright, energetic fellows who are callous enough to put that energy and smarts at the service of taking possesion of the fruits of the labor of other people. Modern slavery *does* exist: we just call it revenues or profits.

    Outside the U.S.A, pro-market policies are only adopted if they are backed up by dictatorships.or de facto dictatorships. Chile under Augusto Pinochet and Nigeria today are examples of this. Cingapure is another good example.

    And don't try to make this a "race" thing because there are very, very few Brazilians that would qualify as what Americans call "white". It's really about the rich Vs poor.

    The U.S.A is the *only* country in the World where a politician can actually get elected on the platform of giving tax cuts to Plutocrats. Imagine how stupid you have to be. You are living in squal;or, you have no future prospects, and yet you vote for a politician that tells you flat out that he won't do anything for you or your loved ones, but will give tax cuts to the Wall Street broker making 100M a year on dividends alone.

    Latin America is going Red(again), Europe is going hardcore right-wing and most of Asia are semi-dictatorships. What does that tell you? It means that "classic" liberalism is dying. This is not supruising since liberalism is such an odd duck in Human History, something that only truly appeals to Danes, Dutchmen, Scandinavians and northern Germans and their genetic descendents in the British Isles, New England and places like Minessota.

    It seems like the future of the World is to be divided by right-wing and left-wing populist dictatorships, with liberalism surviving in a niche stronghold made of Holland, Denmark, Sweden, New York city and Massachusetts.

    BUT the accomplishments of liberalism have been tremendous and unparalleled in Human History, creating the richest and most advanced societies the World has ever seen. Even the U.S.A only became a World Power because liberal New England and it's values won the Civil War and imposed their values and modus operandi to the whole country at the federal level. If the South had won, the U.S would basically have become a larger version of Uruguay. Or maybe West Texas.

    Don't Mess with the Zohan was in a similar vein. Jews and Arabs can patch up their differences by joining together against the hated white gentile to make a home for themselves in America, which of course, rightfully belongs to all the Statue of Liberty (SOL) people, not to the people whose ancestors founded the country. It was occasionally funny (I especially liked the a**hole real-estate developer showing off a model of his latest building, followed by a model of his latest super-model girlfriend), but ultimately offensive to anybody whose ancestors were from west of the Levant.

    That said, I've thought Sandler wasn't bad in some of his movies, like Just Go With It which was a remake of the old Walter Matthau / Goldie Hawn / Ingrid Bergman movie Cactus Flower. I could see him as a good serious actor.

    I remember an essay at the time pointing out that movies about Israelis by American Jews (the other example was Spielberg’s Munich) apparently see the ideal happy ending as the Israelis moving to the US. At the same time there was a third big movie (not specifically Israeli) about Israeli secret agents in which the Israelis remain in Israel. It may reflect some of the weird love/hate relationship American and Israeli Jews have with each other.

    Sandler, interestingly, has never visited Israel in his life. (He’s fifty-six years old; Zohan had some background shots of Tel Aviv at the beginning but was otherwise not shot in the country.)

Well, I wouldn’t know, because I’m not into comedy, neither movies (although they’re okay, I just seldom seek them out) nor, especially, ever, stand-up. But I looked him up anyway, and wow, that guy’s been in a lot of movies – and I haven’t seen or even heard of a single one of them, except Austin Powers, which I’m not even sure I ever watched from start to finish. I don’t think I’ve ever seen his face before either.

    Maybe it shows how culturally divergent things have gotten. Twenty, thirty years ago, it would be weird for someone who is (I hope!) generally “normal,” and into movies and sports and music and stuff (as I still am) to never have heard of or been able to recognize an actor commonly regarded as a “big name.” Or maybe I’m weirder than I thought.

    I think there’s a Ben Franklin quote on that topic.
     
    Franklin's advice on ugly old women:

    “In all your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. You call this a Paradox, and demand my Reasons. They are these:

    1. Because as they have more Knowledge of the World and their Minds are better stor’d with Observations, their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreable.

    2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Men, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a 1000 Services small and great, and are the most tender and useful of all Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an old Woman who is not a good Woman.

    3. Because there is no hazard of Children, which irregularly produc’d may be attended with much Inconvenience.

    4. Because thro’ more Experience, they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your Reputation. And with regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be rather inclin’d to excuse an old Woman who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his Manners by her good Counsels, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes.

    5. Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower Parts continuing to the last as plump as ever: So that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old from a young one. And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement.

    6. Because the Sin is less. The debauching a Virgin may be her Ruin, and make her for Life unhappy.

    7. Because the Compunction is less. The having made a young Girl miserable may give you frequent bitter Reflections; none of which can attend the making an old Woman happy.

You know, with drug cafés, gay marriage, women with full reproductive rights, strong separation between Church and State, etc. In other words, all the things that white conservatives absolutely hate.

    White conservatives are simply not happy in a white liberal society, even if there are no black people around. White conservatives and white liberals just don't "click" socially and emotionally. Imagine how out-of-place and miserable a West Texan white would be living in Denmark or Holland. It's just a completely different mindset.

    White conservatives have this idea that the whole problem is "race", and that if they just got rid of the blacks, the Latinos and all thsoe brown foreigners, that they could make things work with white liberals in an all-white society. But you can't. If you got your all-white country, in less than a generation you would want a separate country from white liberals. The "minor" isues of abortion, gun rights and religion that separates white conservatives and white liberals now would become *big* issues once you had no non-white people around. Loot at Canada. The Canadians from Montreal and those from Anglo Canada despise each other just because of a difference in language. White people never needed non-whites around to hate each other. White people are hyper-individualists with large egos who all want to go their own way.

    Compare the white people of a "blue" state like Massachussets to a "red" state like Texas and their cultures, now picture them sharing the same society. It's simply not possible. It's like trying to mix polar water with non-polar fatty acids. The mutual repulsion is such that they cannot mix under any circumstance. In fact, the only reason why Bostonians and west Texans share the same society is because in reality they don't. They are separated by over a thousand miles.

    Well, duuuuh...

    I was just offering the strongest grounds for doing so. Those are also pretty solid grounds for white Southerners to dump on Jews. If it didn't spin their grandfathers in the grave.

    I've also given some other grounds for dumping on Jews: their support for elective abortion and contraception, and their insistence on replacing Christian prayer with Darwin in the schools. Somehow, the critics of Jews here don't take an interest in these particular destructive activities. What gives?

    When it comes to movies, Sailer sounds like the neocon film reviews and writing on pop culture you see at places like National Review that cheerlead Jewish and other Hollywood mediocrities and try to puff up middlebrow dreck as somehow being wholesome, conservative, and patriotic.

    I have found the complete opposite to be true.

    I’d trust the opinion of someone apolitical over a conservative.

    All across America are Christian conservatives that bemoan Hollywood movies in one sentence and in the next tell you about some crass movie they watched.

    I had some conservative relatives that told me about some awful movie they watched in the theater where a chick has sex with an alien. Well that was in the reviews and no one forced you to sit through the whole thing. I sometimes feel like the only person that will walk on movies. Everyone else sits to the very end. Are you tied to the chair?

    There are a lot of complaints here about Jews and Hollywood yet conservatives everywhere keep plopping down money for premium showings. Just look at the current listings. Mostly horror and that god awful looking Black Adam. But I guarantee that my local theater will be packed this Friday. A bunch of conservatives will talk the next day about what they found offensive in a horror movie.

    These conservatives can’t even wait for Red Box. The ticket sales are what feed Hollywood and Mr. Conservative America has made it clear that he will take his wife or girlfriend to Stabbin’ Nuns 7 and then get online the next day to complain about Hollywood values.

    RE: Bill Cosby, the pride of Temple.

    Lest we forget--here's a rundown on the educational bonafides of the Good Doctor--AKA the Pudding Pop Raper. So I can't be accused of racism, I took it from negro Michael Eric Dyson's Cosby takedown in his 2006 book Is Bill Cosby Right?.


    "[Cosby] dropped out of high school after he flunked the tenth grade three times. He enlisted in the navy, where he got his GED, and then enrolled at Temple University, where he dropped out to pursue a show business career. His unfinished bachelor’s degree from Temple was eventually bestowed on him because of “life experience.” Cosby enrolled as a part-time doctoral student at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, which awarded him the Ed.D. degree in 1977 for a dissertation on Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

    "But not even that degree was unsullied by controversy: A professor who served on Cosby’s dissertation committee, Reginald Damerell, said that Cosby hardly took a class — and that he got course credit for appearing on Sesame Street and The Electric Company, “and wrote a dissertation that analyzed the impact of his show.” Damerell concluded that degrees like Cosby’s “do not attest to genuine academic achievement. They are empty credentials.”

    White conservatives are simply not happy in a white liberal society, even if there are no black people around. White conservatives and white liberals just don’t “click” socially and emotionally. Imagine how out-of-place and miserable a West Texan white would be living in Denmark or Holland. It’s just a completely different mindset.

    White conservatives have this idea that the whole problem is “race”, and that if they just got rid of the blacks, the Latinos and all thsoe brown foreigners, that they could make things work with white liberals in an all-white society. But you can’t. If you got your all-white country, in less than a generation you would want a separate country from white liberals. The “minor” isues of abortion, gun rights and religion that separates white conservatives and white liberals now would become *big* issues once you had no non-white people around. Loot at Canada. The Canadians from Montreal and those from Anglo Canada despise each other just because of a difference in language. White people never needed non-whites around to hate each other. White people are hyper-individualists with large egos who all want to go their own way.

    Compare the white people of a “blue” state like Massachussets to a “red” state like Texas and their cultures, now picture them sharing the same society. It’s simply not possible. It’s like trying to mix polar water with non-polar fatty acids. The mutual repulsion is such that they cannot mix under any circumstance.

    I think there’s a Ben Franklin quote on that topic.
     
    Franklin's advice on ugly old women:

    “In all your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. You call this a Paradox, and demand my Reasons. They are these:

    1. Because as they have more Knowledge of the World and their Minds are better stor’d with Observations, their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreable.

    2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Men, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a 1000 Services small and great, and are the most tender and useful of all Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an old Woman who is not a good Woman.

    3. Because there is no hazard of Children, which irregularly produc’d may be attended with much Inconvenience.

    4. Because thro’ more Experience, they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your Reputation. And with regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be rather inclin’d to excuse an old Woman who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his Manners by her good Counsels, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes.

    5. Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower Parts continuing to the last as plump as ever: So that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old from a young one. And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement.

    6. Because the Sin is less. The debauching a Virgin may be her Ruin, and make her for Life unhappy.

    7. Because the Compunction is less. The having made a young Girl miserable may give you frequent bitter Reflections; none of which can attend the making an old Woman happy.

    8thly and Lastly They are so grateful!!”

    “The south was a primitive backwater, a mix of a slave society and feudalism.”

    Complete nonsense. Donald Livingston does a good job of exploding this kind of victor’s history. You can find him discussing claims like yours starting at minute 20:00.

    Certainly knew or was related to someone who was.


    On the other hand, perhaps Honduras has followed Uganda, Colombia, and Rwanda on the road back to (relative) sanity.

    "Reg was talking about “the remnant Union”, meaning the North sans the South."

    New England and the northern U.S for the most part are *liberal* .Even without any black people, the North would basically be a super-sized version of Holland. You know, with drug cafés, gay marriage, women with full reproductive rights, strong separation between Church and State, etc. In other words, all the things that white conservatives absolutely hate.

    White conservatives are simply not happy in a white liberal society, even if there are no black people around. White conservatives and white liberals just don't "click" socially and emotionally. Imagine how out-of-place and miserable a West Texan white would be living in Denmark or Holland. It's just a completely different mindset.

    White conservatives have this idea that the whole problem is "race", and that if they just got rid of the blacks, the Latinos and all thsoe brown foreigners, that they could make things work with white liberals in an all-white society. But you can't. If you got your all-white country, in less than a generation you would want a separate country from white liberals. The "minor" isues of abortion, gun rights and religion that separates white conservatives and white liberals now would become *big* issues once you had no non-white people around. Loot at Canada. The Canadians from Montreal and those from Anglo Canada despise each other just because of a difference in language. White people never needed non-whites around to hate each other. White people are hyper-individualists with large egos who all want to go their own way.

    Compare the white people of a "blue" state like Massachussets to a "red" state like Texas and their cultures, now picture them sharing the same society. It's simply not possible. It's like trying to mix polar water with non-polar fatty acids. The mutual repulsion is such that they cannot mix under any circumstance. In fact, the only reason why Bostonians and west Texans share the same society is because in reality they don't. They are separated by over a thousand miles. You only notive the mutual hatred on federal issues that affect both.

    Zero- from experience, I will completely verify/agree with this.

    Born, raised, educated in Boston. Live in Texas. Love both places and peoples, but in very different ways.

    I have to think that Texans would be shocked at how low in regard they are held by folks from the Northeast.

    White folks in the north just really look down on southern white folks, generally: hatred, condescension, etc. It is pretty bad.

    Race is a significant (blacks really; Whites,
    Asians and Hispanics get along reasonably well), but some of the divisions we have with other whites would not be easy to bridge.

    Starting point assumptions by northern white liberals and southern white conservatives: I think we would be very hard pressed to live together without being at serious loggerheads.

    What planet are you on?

    Most US conservatives DO NOT recognize race as more than skin color and maybe some athletic ability.

    They are certain that “big government” is the problem.

    Most US conservatives are Christian and have a hard time with evolution. They prefer Fox explanations where by bugaboo Democrats hold back Blacks through high taxes on small businesses. Is it actually true? Hey now don’t ask too many questions ya f-cking homo Marxist.

    RE: Bill Cosby, the pride of Temple.

    Lest we forget–here’s a rundown on the educational bonafides of the Good Doctor–AKA the Pudding Pop Raper. So I can’t be accused of racism, I took it from negro Michael Eric Dyson’s Cosby takedown in his 2006 book Is Bill Cosby Right?.

    “[Cosby] dropped out of high school after he flunked the tenth grade three times. He enlisted in the navy, where he got his GED, and then enrolled at Temple University, where he dropped out to pursue a show business career. His unfinished bachelor’s degree from Temple was eventually bestowed on him because of “life experience.” Cosby enrolled as a part-time doctoral student at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, which awarded him the Ed.D. degree in 1977 for a dissertation on Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

    “But not even that degree was unsullied by controversy: A professor who served on Cosby’s dissertation committee, Reginald Damerell, said that Cosby hardly took a class — and that he got course credit for appearing on Sesame Street and The Electric Company, “and wrote a dissertation that analyzed the impact of his show.” Damerell concluded that degrees like Cosby’s “do not attest to genuine academic achievement. They are empty credentials.”

    It's a strange kind of cultural formula animating white people.

    White self-hate isn't simply that. It's really a form of narcissism, i.e. "I'm soooo very good because I'm so caring of my sins." It's like Christians getting a moral hard on with their "I'm unworthy" shtick before God. It makes them feel sanctimonious.

    So, stuff like BLM is only partly white self-loathing before blacks. It's also whites elevating their moral status by virtue-signaling about their 'sins'. And of course, they did it en masse in 2020 because it was useful against Trump. "Trump is racist but we GOOD WHITES kneel before the holy blacks."
    But where all those people when Stop and Frisk was being used during the Obama years and when blacks were being incarcerated in record numbers under Clinton?

    It was all a political circus in 2020 because white virtue-signaling made the 'educated' whites feel smugly superior to MAGA.

    I can’t elaborate that much because I like to keep my profession out of the conversation.

    Basically college educated Whites in deep south cities.

    They would try to upsell anything perceived as intellectual (we have some top department or museum blah blab blah) and try to separate themselves as Good Smart Whites in comparison to the locals. It just seemed like they absorbed a lot of Hollywood programming about dumb hicks in the south and were trying to compensate. They would try to talk me out of certain bbq joints and bars. I’d laugh and tell them I didn’t fly in to eat pizza.

    Anything related to race was kept around Yankee sensitives. I had a hard time telling if they were trying to keep their true beliefs from me or themselves.

    I have also vacationed around the south and was always surprised by conversations with Whites at the bars. It’s like they want to believe in Yankee television while knowing it is bullshit.

    I also found the media to be very disturbing. I was sitting in my hotel and the news talked about a (Black) murdering rapist on the loose as if they were talking about the weather. Folks here is your violent negro forecast for the day. Southern Whites are more likely to conceal carry and have a realistic view of race but they are far more tolerant of negro shenanigans than northerners realize. They have adapted to an uncomfortable reality and many seem to accept a hostile frontline just so the yankee north can live a fantasy. It’s all very strange.

    Now on the west coast it’s an completely different matter.

    I’ll take a bar in the south over one on the west coast any day. I really do like the south but it just isn’t for me. The summers are a bit much and the rural areas can be a bit cultish. As in everyone goes to the same baptist church and assumes the oddball of the neighborhood is a satanist.

    The review itself shows the movie is biased BS and the review even more so. Hard pass.
