Driven to fits of fury by the inability to vanquish President Trump in the real world, Hollywood and the liberal media have put their faith in King T’Challa to strike a blow against the phantom white supremacist country that they think exists now that Barack Obama has left the building.
Not since last year’s “Wonder Woman” has such a spectacular SJW piece of big-budget propaganda been unleashed upon impressionable minds as the box office smash in waiting “Black Panther.”
The latest addition to the mighty Marvel Comics superhero franchise is about the mythical African nation of Wakanda which is so technologically advanced as compared to the rest of the world that it may as well be out of a Star Wars movie.
The idea is beginning to take hold that the entire African continent would be like Wakanda if not for those damned white people and their diabolical meddling.

One place that will be a safe space from such meddling is the popular movie review website Rotten Tomatoes which has announced that it will eliminate any who dare to blaspheme “Black Panther” under the pretense that they are “white nationalist” (and probably Russian) trolls.

This week has already brought the rise of an encore social media campaign by the Facebook group “Down With Disney’s Treatment of Franchises and its Fanboys.” The group claimed upon last December’s release of Disney/Lucasfilm’s latest Star Wars movie to have triggered a wave of intensely negative “Last Jedi” audience reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
Now, targeting another Disney film with a notably diverse cast, the group launched the Facebook event “Give Black Panther a Rotten Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes,” which drew only a few thousand members.
But then the review-aggregation site, perhaps trying to get ahead of criticism this time around, issued a statement, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“We at Rotten Tomatoes are proud to have become a platform for passionate fans to debate and discuss entertainment and we take that responsibility seriously,” the site said Thursday in a statement. “While we respect our fans’ diverse opinions, we do not condone hate speech. Our team of security, network and social experts continue to closely monitor our platforms and any users who engage in such activities will be blocked from our site and their comments removed as quickly as possible.”
The Facebook group has since been deactivated.
Vanity Fair praises Rotten Tomatoes for censoring critics and stifling honest reviews of people who may see the movie and just think that it sucks based on its script, acting or other actual aspects. This movie is getting the help of a big thumb on the scale from the media.

Via Vanity Fair:
It’s not surprising, then, that this hateful group would set its sights on Black Panther, a film with a majority black cast that also features a dazzling array of female characters. But considering how quickly both Facebook and Rotten Tomatoes reacted against the group this time, don’t expect to see Black Panther’s ratings take too hard of a hit.
But of course, Rotten Tomatoes won’t differentiate between the so-called “alt-right trolls” and the black identity extremist trolls who are posting false positive reviews so as to skew the ratings.
As of Thursday morning, Rotten Tomatoes has an astounding 100 percent positive rating for “Black Panther” that seems as legitimate as the results in one of Saddam Hussein’s elections.

Even Time magazine is pumping this divisive propagandistic revenge fantasy of a flick.

If you are reading this and you are white, seeing people who look like you in mass media probably isn’t something you think about often. Every day, the culture reflects not only you but nearly infinite versions of you—executives, poets, garbage collectors, soldiers, nurses and so on. The world shows you that your possibilities are boundless. Now, after a brief respite, you again have a President.
Those of us who are not white have considerably more trouble not only finding representation of ourselves in mass media and other arenas of public life, but also finding representation that indicates that our humanity is multifaceted. Relating to characters onscreen is necessary not merely for us to feel seen and understood, but also for others who need to see and understand us. When it doesn’t happen, we are all the poorer for it.
This is one of the many reasons Black Panther is significant. What seems like just another entry in an endless parade of superhero movies is actually something much bigger. It hasn’t even hit theaters yet and its cultural footprint is already enormous. It’s a movie about what it means to be black in both America and Africa—and, more broadly, in the world. Rather than dodge complicated themes about race and identity, the film grapples head-on with the issues affecting modern-day black life. It is also incredibly entertaining, filled with timely comedy, sharply choreographed action and gorgeously lit people of all colors. “You have superhero films that are gritty dramas or action comedies,” director Ryan Coogler tells TIME. But this movie, he says, tackles another important genre: “Superhero films that deal with issues of being of African descent.”
My, what a ringing endorsement for an all-inclusive society in which individuals are judged on their merits instead of their skin color. There is really no way to spin this other than this is only playing into the rapid decline of race relations in America thanks to Obama and the Democrats along with their liberal stooges in the media.
Hey, it may be a damned good movie but endorsements like this, as well as the intolerance towards criticism, conjures images of a certain society glorified by the films of a woman named Leni Riefenstahl. That being the case, I think I’ll pass.
