What right wing racism?
Wingnuts • Views: 23,753

Quentin Tarantino’s new film “Django Unchained” is a story about an escaped slave who takes revenge on Southern slave owners, and unsurprisingly for a film about slavery and racism, it contains numerous uses of the “N-word.”

Right wing news aggregator Matt Drudge knows an opportunity when he sees one:

If anyone is interested in the ummm, culture clash between Spike Lee and Tarantino, here is a link to an NBC opinion piece. Remember the dust-up about the N word and Jacki Brown between them?

[Link: thegrio.com...]

In his defense, Tarantino argued in a Playboy interview: “I am working with The English language. I am not just a film director who shoots movies. I’m an artist, and good, bad, or indifferent, I’m coming from that place. All my choices, the way I live my life, are about that.

”Tarantino and Lee are both gifted filmmakers in their respective genres. Lee’s boisterous self-righteousness and dyspeptic personality once led New York magazine to call him “the angriest auteur.” Still, it’s not for nothing that Lee remains one of the most successful black filmmakers of all time: his movies draw legitimate praise for articulating the hopes, fears and rage inherent in African-American culture. Tarantino, meanwhile, specializes in gratuitously foul-mouthed yet immensely enjoyable schlock. His movies make you feel like taking a bath after you watch them, but there’s no denying their guilty pleasure value.

I mean, how is he supposed to cope with a movie about a black man out for revenge, unflattering depictions of Southern whites, Hollywood liberals (who are the real racists), and the void in his soul resultant from the knowledge that he doesn't get to n-bomb as much as he wants to?

Drudge is playing the old "why can they say that but we can't" bologna. In this case of course "they" comes in the form of Quentin Tarantino. Then he brings up something about Spike Lee complaining about the n-word being OK but if you bring up a Jewish slur it's not OK, "Why is it that 'n*gger' is all right, but you get into Jewish slur and you're antisemitic?" Or something. So is Drudge petitioning for Jewish slurs?

Atwater:

You start out in 1954 by saying, "n*****, n*****, n*****." By 1968 you can't say "n*****" — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites.

'Forced busing' doesn't do it any more. 'States' rights' is almost worn out. Obama won't let them cut taxes any more. I guess we're going back to 1954 to start the cycle again.

The British and the USians got in on the action. Slaving was an entrepreneurial opportunity with no national boundaries.

Weirdly, I'm listening to a book tape on the Underground Railroad at this very instant, and one of the arguments made by Quakers for abolitionism was precisely that slavery led one away from the do-it-yourself ethic of Protestantism.

Bristol Palin’s Failed Reality Show Received $354,348 In Taxpayer Dollars From Alaska

The continuing move of the entire Palin family into reality television careers is an amusing downfall story, but it took a serious turn today with the news that the state of Alaska had provided $354,348 in subsidies to Bristol Palin’s most recent venture into the genre, her Lifetime show Bristol Palin: Life’s A Tripp, which had such dreadful ratings it was yanked from its slot after two episodes. It’s one thing for the entertainment industry to effectively subsidize the Palins’ careers, given the relatively limited appeal they have in the aftermath of Sarah Palin’s political career. But it’s another for Alaska to spend money to attract a show to the state that probably would have filmed there anyway.

I know you were doing a very brief synopsis-I just don't really see how it would work. Perhaps it was being used to portray the southern landowners as lazy, but of course, most slave owners only owned a slave or two and worked beside them in the fields, and it doesn't seem reasonable to expect even a very large family to work an entire plantation without help.

Cheese has been around longer than the planet.

Prehistoric man made cheese as long as 7,000 years ago

An international team said Wednesday they found proof for this theory from chemical analysis of fatty acid deposits on unglazed pottery pieces excavated in Poland, dating from about 7,000 years ago.

“The presence of abundant milk fat in these specialised vessels, comparable in form to modern cheese strainers, provides compelling evidence for the vessels having been used to separate fat-rich milk curds from the lactose-containing whey,” the researchers wrote.

Early farmers would have been lactose intolerant, lacking the genetic mutation we have since acquired to digest milk products long after being weaned off the breast.

Which begs the question, when did they first cut the cheese?

This movie is really gonna piss off the neo-confederates and other racists out there. Not because the n-word is used so much, but because it's a revenge fantasy based on a black guy in the antebellum South killing a bunch of white racists and plantation owners. Good, we'll see plenty of wingnuts complain, once again proving that they still haven't gotten over the Civil War.

It's a bit similar to "Inglourious Basterds" (Tarantino's last film) which was about Jews killing Nazis, only here it's blacks killing confederates. Check out the trailers: Leonardo DiCaprio plays an evil plantation owner. At one point he proclaims, "I've spent my whole life vastly outnumbered by Negroes. I don't understand why they don't just rise up and start killing white people." To which Christophe Waltz responds, "Well, there's always a first time for everything." Seems like pretty clear foreshadowing that a lot of white folks are gonna get it at the hands of slaves. Just like Inglourious Basterds, it's the kind of revenge flick I think I can enjoy.

Rick Perry: Outlawing All Access To Abortion Is ‘My Goal’

At a press conference on Tuesday organized by the anti-abortion group Texas Right to Life, Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) reaffirmed that his ultimate legislative objective is to restrict all women’s access to abortion services.

Members of Texas Right to Life are currently pushing their state’s legislators to pass a “fetal pain” bill that would ban abortions after just 20 weeks — despite the fact that there’s no scientific evidence that fetuses can actually feel pain at that point. As the Huffington Post reports, Perry not only enthusiastically endorsed such a measure, but also confirmed his “goal” to continue passing restrictive legislation to limit women’s Constitutional right to choose:

re: #83 HappyWarrior

Can't wait to see this movie if only to see Christoph Waltz as a good guy. That's gonna be neat after his portrayal of Landa in Basterds and I know Tarantino was thinking that.

He's portrayed as a good guy (or at least a bounty hunter with a heart of gold) in the trailers. But I wonder if he's going to stick to his part of the bargain at the end of the movie, or if he might betray Jamie Foxx. Either way, he's a hell of an actor, even in drivel like "Water for Elephants." Maybe he'll get the Stars and Bars carved into his forehead at the end.

Why Is the Drudge Report Covered in ‘N*GGER’? The Coming Right-Wing Freakout Over Django Unchained

Drudge's attention-grabbing headline, elucidated over the course of the morning in a series of smaller headlines, was an oblique reference to the frequency of the slur in the movie, and Tarantino's own, much-criticized history of using it in his scripts. It's hard to take Drudge — who's obsessed with black people to the point of fetish — seriously on this score, though: is the guy who uses his national news site to hype stories of marauding black teens really, all of a sudden, taking Spike Lee's side on something?

That's a rhetorical question: no, he doesn't care that Tarantino writes "n*****" into his characters' mouths 80-plus times in Django Unchained, in which a slave played by Jamie Foxx seeks to free his wife from a vicious plantation owner. He's just used his particular genius for understanding white American racial anxiety to seize on its newest front line.

This isn't the first time Django Unchained has been on the Drudge Report this week. On Monday, it got a photo and headline above the main story: "UNCHAINED: Foxx Jokes About Killing 'All The White People' In New Movie..." Above the headline, Drudge had a production still of Foxx, in a cowboy hat, holding a revolver.

The link took readers to Jamie Foxx's Saturday Night Live monologue, which was one of Monday's big "stories" in the online conservative media. "Black is in," Foxx had riffed. In his new movie, he said, "I play a slave. How black is that? [...] I get free. I save my wife and I kill all the white people in the movie. How great is that?

Once again, it is not the words themselves that are racist, but the context in which they are used.

A man wearing a white hood in Spain is a penitente, a rather different matter than a man in a hood in the American south.

We get too many knee-jerk reactions and over reactions from people who do not understand things like context or nuance.

Why Is the Drudge Report Covered in ‘N*GGER’? The Coming Right-Wing Freakout Over Django Unchained

I think that this paragraph from the Gawker writeup sums things up rather pointedly:

Django Unchained, unsurprisingly, has already been the subject of a series of heated blog posts on white nationalist sites. "Django Unchained; Incitement to racially motivated murder," goes one headline; another calls it an "anti-White racial snuff film." NRO and Breitbart won't write that out, specifically. But they know they don't have to: they're sharing an audience with the white nationalist sites — an audience that thinks that President Obama has been a racially "divisive" president, an audience that believes a race war is on the horizon, an audience that sympathizes with George Zimmerman. An audience that thinks an SNL monologue qualify as incitement to violence.

131 Jimmah  Wed, Dec 12, 2012 1:34:37pm

You start out in 1954 by saying, “n*****, n*****, n*****.” By 1968 you can't say “n*****” — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I'm not saying that. But I'm saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, “We want to cut this,” is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than “n*****, n*****.”

Nice to see Drudge coming full circle with the Southern Strategy.

Bryan Fischer misreads scientific finding to attack homosexuals again

Now these researchers are quite at pains to avoid saying anything like this, but the logic to me seems inescapable: Homosexual children, on this theory, are born evolutionarily and genetically disadvantaged. They have been overexposed or underexposed to testosterone because something has gone wrong in the process of genetic transmission. In other words, they are the product of a genetic abnormality at best, a birth defect at worst.

Now Rice is quick to add all kinds of qualifiers. These markers are “highly variable” and only “strong” epi-marks will result in homosexual offspring. But if Rice is correct, I expect many abortion-minded parents will want to know exactly how strong this epi-marker is in their unborn children so they can decide whether or not to exercise reproductive choice.

"America was founded by WASPs -- White Anglo-Saxon Protestants. They had nuclear families, attended church, and believed in the Protestant work ethic."

Is that what "racial realism" sounds like to you?

I've gotta wonder how they'd run this country and what it would look like if they could get rid of all the non-Protestant, unemployed, non-church going, unmarried Whites who live alone, as well as all the Asians, Blacks, Hispanics, and myriad other people of various shades of brown.

I'm guessing the "racial realism" would look something like this:
