Documentary Uncle Tom

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 29, 2020 by andelino

It is both a “dismal” reflection and “depressing” statement of the times in which we live that a film like “Uncle Tom” is considered “controversial” and worthy of “media” censorship.

For daring to reject the prevailing “narrative” of black victim hood and instead choosing to “empower” the black community through individual actions, it has already been largely ignored by “conventional” media outlets.

To no one’s surprise, and to the film’s point, “black conservative” opinions do not matter. Hence a review three weeks in the making; if this film inexplicably “escaped” your radar, time to put it back on there. Sometimes second waves can be good.

Released on Juneteenth, “Uncle Tom” offers an alternative view, one of “uplift and optimism”, that run counter to the “depressing and damaging” narrative of black oppression by white America.

A statement by Herman Cain at the onset of the film captures the essence of the “divide” besetting our nation and the basis of the culture war in which we presently find ourselves mired. Cain states his three guiding lights are a “belief in God, belief in myself, and belief in the United States of America.” 

It dawned on me how little we hear phrases like this anymore.

Each of these beliefs is “anathema” to the current platform of the Democrats and the left. They say belief in God is “delusional”, they say belief in oneself is Eurocentric and rooted in “whiteness” (this is not a joke, Robin DiAngelo says the concept of individualism is pablum from Western Civilization), and they say belief in the United States is – get ready for it – “racist, sexist, intolerant, patriarchal, cisgender normative, therefore transphobic, heteronormative, therefore homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic and based in white supremacy and colonization.”

Someone, somewhere, has probably added to the list in the last five minutes.

Cain was speaking only for himself, but it is safe to suggest that not only are each of the film’s participants guided by a similar set of values but that conservatives as a whole are.

Here is Herman Cain, someone who grew up “poor and black” in the American South, and later became a decorated Naval officer, a computer science whiz, corporate executive, Federal Reserve branch chairman, and presidential candidate, and I find myself having more in common with him as a younger white male with a completely different childhood and professional background than I do most of my own siblings or cousins.

Why? Because we share the same values.

In the leftists’ perfect world, and as an example of their unifying themes and tolerance, I would owe Herman Cain reparations because I’m white and he would be expected to loathe me for ancient evils because he’s black. Does that make our country stronger?

The film opens with each interviewee running down a litany of “hateful” terms they have been called by fellow blacks as a result of simply rejecting the narrative of “victim hood.” For daring to step away from the expected party line, they are “demeaned and silenced.”

Each strong enough to withstand the hate, it is the silence that is most frustrating; how is it that thinkers like Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, and Clarence Thomas are unknowns in the black community?

The election of Barack Obama was certainly a pinnacle achievement for the black community and provided inspiration outside the realms of hip-hop and sports, but there are others in the public sphere who could have been serving generations of young blacks as equally inspirational role models.

The film also delves into the various political and entrepreneurial success stories of black Americans, young and old. Executive producer Larry Elder and director Justin Malone assemble a group of people that, at any other time, would be exemplars of success and worthy of emulation for everyone.

The aforementioned Herman Cain, Colonel Allen West, Carol Swain, and Larry Elder himself appear alongside a younger generation of prominent black voices like Brandon Tatum and Candace Owens, among others, in a powerful showcasing of what “confidence, competence, and perseverance” can deliver. They neither wanted favor nor got it. They simply wanted the system and naysayers to get out of the way so they could go achieve.

Carol Swain, a prominent historian, and professor is introduced to us by saying “I never saw myself as handicapped because I was a black, because I was a woman, that I came from poverty…” Likewise, an early glimpse of Larry Elder shows him telling us that “I always knew I was going to be an achiever…I never thought of myself as a victim.”

Herman Cain relates the time a college student asked him “How did you deal with color and race when you were climbing the corporate ladder?” He laughs, then continues with his reply, “I didn’t – let them do it.”

Consistent across the interviews is a simple realization: “Not one person in the bunch sees themselves as a victim, and not surprisingly, each person is successful in their own way, in career, family, disposition. Each individual speaker is proud of who they are and their heritage.”

Indeed, the subjects of the film could not be more satisfied and content with their own outcomes in life, the result of “hard work, determination, and self-reliance.” They have applied themselves and as a result, each of them has lived the American Dream.

But, in order to do so, they, like anyone else, have to see themselves as Americans first. Not black and definitely not victims; but Americans.

The story of Jesse Lee Peterson is a great example of a political awakening. As a young, angry black man who accepted the myth that blacks could not achieve, he nonetheless observed the likes of Jesse Jackson profit handsomely off “race hustling.” If Jesse Jackson could beat the system and enrich himself, why couldn’t other blacks?

In a flash, the narrative wisped away. Colin Kaepernick makes an appearance as a modern-day example of someone simultaneously “decrying” the American system and generating enormous “sums of money” for himself for doing it.

What the film is not, and this is most important, is a plea for black Americans to just change their “voting” habits on a whim. Insofar as that is the current modus operandi, pulling a lever uncritically is the entire complaint of the production team.

Right now, they ask why 95% of blacks are “dependable” Democrats; simply switching over to the other side in equal numbers “ignores” the larger problem, namely seeking out “solutions” that are best for the community.

In many ways, in fact, a just-as-common complaint among many of the film’s subjects is that they are equally “abandoned” by the conservative right. Carol Swain found out firsthand that the Republican establishment didn’t seem overly concerned with “winning” black votes in her native Nashville during a mayoral run, and Colonel Allen West observes that Republicans have largely “written off” the black vote, having accepted it is a monolithic bloc.

Still, one cannot help but notice the appeal to the Republican Party. After all, there are staggering revelations about the percentage of “Planned Parenthood” operating in black communities (75%) and the resultant sheer loss of black life via “abortion” (20 million since Roe v. Wade; 52% of all black pregnancies ending in abortion).

There is then the incompatibility between Democrats supporting unchecked “illegal” immigration that imposes a burden not only on the low-wage job market but the welfare state, too. Both disproportionately impact the black community. School choice could be added to the list.

At the same time, the narrative about black “oppression” could be countered if the media celebrated aspects going well.

As Larry Elder observes, “if black America were a country, it’d be the 15th wealthiest country in the world.” Candace Owens remarks, in a Congressional hearing, that “white supremacy” would not crack a list on things the black community needs to worry about; yet, what is the narrative in the media and culture?

The dialogues are intended to be eye-opening for the black community, but this film is so powerful because it can resonate with anybody. Yes, it is a movie with only black voices, and the black voices speak directly to an intended black audience, but their messages transcend race.

That is the beauty of the conservative message. We look beyond superficial traits like skin color and focus on values. This film speaks about a specific value system – seeing oneself as in control of a personal narrative, working through challenges and coming out stronger, accepting America as a terrific country of opportunity, and being rewarded for hard work.

Every single American would become a better person having adopted such values, and the country would become better for it as well.

This film needs to be seen by everyone. Share the message!

Clinton Fatigue

Clinton Fatigue 01

Tired Grandma Hillary Clinton.

Are You “Clinton Fatigue” Yet?

Hillary took time out of her “busy” babysitting schedule to “loosen up and joke” with reporters.

The news that her private “unsecured” server was the likely source for the “leaked” information that directly led to the “terrorist” attack on Benghazi made Hillary “shake” her head and laugh.

hillary-stevens2e0c9bb1c7c99150d1f951f62e0f878b

Hillary didn’t “deny” that all the information of Ambassador Stevens’ “intentions and movements” went through that thoroughly “compromised” email pipeline.

“The fact is,” said Hillary with a laughable face, “I thought an e-mail server was someone serving me my e-mail. I have lots of servants serving me, so it’s a simple mistake. I told my people I need a private e-mail server. I thought it was like a butler for e-mail. Well, when I found out he leaked Ambassador Stevens’ sensitive information and got all those people killed in Benghazi, I gave Huma specific instructions to have that person serving me e-mail flogged. I was told the server was soundly flogged. I don’t see what else anyone thinks I should do about it.”

Hillary kept on “laughing” at her joke but the press “remained” nonplussed.

In Columbus, Ohio Hillary “addressed” a women’s group but the “crowd” was sparse.

Staffers noted that “women,” who intended to hear about the “misery” of being female, and what the first “Female President” would do for them, were unable to “attend” because they were either “cleaning house, breastfeeding, doing menial jobs for 73% on the dollar compared to their male counterparts, or making their husbands a sammich.”

Hill then “dissed” Petraeus to change the “subject” basically calling him a “liar” to his face during his “appearance” before the Senate…

“We Be Sisters” be tellin’ the “truth” about Hillary Clinton. “Donald Trump wants to secure the country for the American people, while Hillary Clinton only wants to secure votes for herself.”

An “undercover” video filmed by James O’Keefe and “Project Veritas” purportedly shows Molly Barker, the “National Marketing Director” for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, “knowingly and intentionally” violating “campaign finance laws.”

During Clinton’s “kickoff” campaign event at Roosevelt Island, a Canadian “citizen” with no affiliation to “Project Veritas Action” attempted to make an “illegal donation” to the Clinton campaign by “purchasing” a Hillary shirt.

Barker knew that this was “illegal,” a fact which was confirmed by Clinton’s “National Compliance Manager” Erin Tibe, yet proceeded to “process” the contribution.

Barker facilitated a “straw man” transaction where the Canadian citizen gave “cash” to an American citizen who subsequently “purchased” the shirt for the Canadian under Barker’s “direction.”

Barker who was fully “aware” of the law didn’t merely “look the other way” like Tibe did, rather, she actually “facilitated election illegalities.”

A Clinton official told Time Magazine that “the campaign is confident it upheld the law.”

In the latest “batch” of Hillary emails released, Sidney Blumenthal forwarded Clinton a “memo” regarding the “impeachment” of Supreme Court “Justice Clarence Thomas” written by David Brock.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

The seven-page memo, entitled “Memo on Impeaching Clarence Thomas,” was sent in an email with the subject “H: Brock memo here, have many more ideas on this. S.”

“Crook,” “Weak,” “Joke” are just a few of the words that “voters” said when Quinnipiac University asked them the first word that “pops” into their heads when they “think” of Hillary Clinton.

Quinnipiac “asked” 1,563 voters and reported only the “words” that were said at least “five” times.

And the winning word was “Liar.”

Clinton can’t “shake” the reputation that she’s “hiding” something. The word “liar” was mentioned 178 times in “association” with Hillary.

Some of the other top words voters said to describe the former Secretary of State were “dishonest,” “untrustworthy,” and “criminal.”

The “two” issues the GOP argues why Clinton’s “unfit” to hold office – “Benghazi” and “Email” – topped the “list” as well.

Also, her husband’s first name, “Casanova Bill,” came up 56 times by voters.

Mistery Box 01

Hillary announced a “special offer” over Twitter.

Meet the mystery “ThxBox,” a personal “thank you”  from Hillary. Get on the “waiting list” to find out more.

Whether she’s simply “trolling” critics who would say that her mishandling of “classified information” should land her in a “prison” cell or handing out “swag” packs to the “diehards” who still support her, one thing’s for sure: “Everybody is curious to find out what’s inside!”

Clinton Fatigue 02

Rumor has it that the “secret” mystery boxes “contain” copies of all wiped “emails” from her private “server” the FBI couldn’t find.
