Quentin Tarantino´s Django Unchained
American Thinker, by Marion DS Dreyfus

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 12/11/2012 9:09:47 AM

Opening Christmas Day Briefly, former dentist Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz), recently turned lucrative pre-Civil War bounty hunter, buys the freedom of slave, Django (Jamie Foxx), training him in finding, hunting and killing the wanted villains he has been hired to bring to heel.(snip)We are, again, under a different director, being toasted over an Oliver Stone goblet of faux history. History as rewritten by nihilist jokers with an agenda.

Obama (and his acolytes) = reparations. Plain and simple. Now all he needs is a palomino.

Holy pontificating, it´s a Tarantino movie. Lighten up.

Inglourious B@sterds was quite good. The Israelis loved it.

I went into "Inglourious Bastards" thinking that I would hate it. It turned out to be an amazing piece of film making with some of the best written scenes I´ve seen in years. The opening scene in the French farm house, with it´s expert mixing of languages, and espicially the scene in the basement of the cafe, which lasted for almost a half hour of discursive interlocking conversations like a Chekhov play. Of course no Chekhov play ever ended in a bloodbath.

It will be a longgggg day in Hell before this WHITE person goes to see anything with Jamie Foxx in it. Just read his comments on Drudge, which, when you add them to Lord and Savior Obama, really stele things.....white people dead, ho ho ho, etc. This Foxx must be one dumb guy---there goes a good portion of his audience right off the bat........take a look at Drudge (Tuesday Dec. 11th) for your laugh of the day.

And wasn´t Samuel Jackson the guy who was heavily featured in Obama ads saying the earth will die if Romney wins over Barack. The devil with them both. (I know Jackson does well; caught a talk show once where he talked about his servants at home etc., all this while wearing that idiot beret he has adopted.) I do NOT need to spend my $ money on films making these guys richer--and more contemptuous---=still.

I also thought the basement scene in Inglorious was great, but the rest of the movie was almost unwatchable.

BTW, the Brad Pitt character was a transparent attempt at mocking Bush and the global war on terror.

Seems like Tarantino has settled on making faux historical revenge flicks for previously oppressed minorities. Given our current state of victimhood, he´ll have not shortage of material.

Enlightening and interesting review. I´ll probably go see the movie, but not at the first-run theater... sounds like it worth $2.

Reviewer Dreyfus compared Tarantino with another "faux-history" director, Oliver Stone. There´s a big difference, however. Tarantino makes no pretense at behing historically accurate. Stone wants you think his movies are documentaries. (IMO they are more boring than most documentaries. Nobody ever accused Tarantino of being boring.)

A quiet coup ratchets up
the propaganda quotient in education
with Advanced Placement exams
American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 3/29/2014 10:10:49 AM     Post Reply
While alarm bells are loudly ringing over the Common Core, a much quieter, yet potentially devastating, coup is underway, enabling the progressives to subvert secondary education. In classic leftist fashion, the vehicle chosen to propagandize our youth into seeing America as a fundamentally racist, unworthy, and unfair society in need of “fundamental transformation” revolves around a wealthy non-profit organization that enjoys a near-monopoly on a prestige-generating market niche. The Heartland Institute alerts us to what’s going on, as the College Board Advanced Placement Examination is being turned into a vehicle to denigrate American History.

It was 1993. I lived in an all-white, middle-class neighborhood, mostly Italian and Irish with some Albanian-Americans, in Staten Island, New York. I interviewed 22 people in order to rent my two-family home where I lived in the bottom apartment. Applicant Number 23, an Afro-American male greeted me at the door. He said his name was Curtis Black and he was a Wall Street broker. He was wearing a $2,000, blue pinstripe Brooks Brother suit. After the interview I told him I would call him if he was selected. Two weeks later, he rang my doorbell. He asked if I had

The irony police are going to need reinforcements to handle the tsunami being generated in San Francisco. State Senator Leland Yee appeared in federal court yesterday in shackles, and faced a lengthy indictment for a series of corruption charges, including shocking allegations of gun-running – including shoulder-fired rocket launchers. An undercover FBI agent met repeatedly with Lee, a prominent gun control advocate who had authored legislation to expand the definition of “assault weapons.” (snip)The undercover agent asked about the availability of shoulder fired missiles or rockets.

There are encouraging signs that the very corrupt Democrat political machine in the California state legislature may be finally getting exposed, indicted, and, God willing, destroyed. The state of California is a corrupt banana republic, run by Democrats, and spending a yearly budget in excess of a hundred billion dollars a year. Evidently, the FBI and federal prosecutors have taken notice, and the arrest last month of powerful Democrat state Senator Ron Calderon was this morning followed by the indictment and arrest of another Democrat powerhouse, state Senator Leland Yee (snip) ABC7 News has learned they are making numerous arrests

Valerie Jarrett is the most powerful figure in the White House, rivalling President Obama in the scope of her influence over the fate of the Republic. Her personal Secret Service detail attests to the importance of her role in our government – in a position that is unelected and unconfirmed by the Senate. She has served as the godmother of Barack Obama’s political and personal life, from introducing him to his future wife Michelle Robinson to integrating him into Chicago’s political machine and power structure.

Mireille Miller-Young´s Heartbreak

Mireille Miller-Young is an Associate Professor of feminist studies at the University of California-Santa Barbara (UCSB). Recently charged with robbery and assault against Thrin Short, a 16-year-old Christian demonstrator in the UCSB “Free Speech Zone,” Miller-Young justified her violence against the teenager -- who was peacefully urging mothers not to kill their unborn children -- as the moral act of a conscientious objector against a terrorist. This cockeyed characterization seemed like the expression of a functional psychosis. And how could that professor, without a single notable publication, survive the “publish or perish” rigors of academia -- with tenure? The following excerpt

Michelle´s Hard-Knock Life

Recycling her tried-and-true American dream story, Michelle Obama gave Chinese schoolchildren the same stump speech she delivers everywhere she goes, from Ireland to Chicago. The FLOTUS has used her hard-knock life tale to justify more vacations for herself than her husband has golf balls. The problem is that the story is exaggerated, and even if it weren’t, to complain about struggling as a child in a free country as opposed to a struggling as a child in a country where the annual average family income is $10,220 today, which is similar to what it was in 1972 in the U.S. when

Ho-hum, a mob of 200 teenagers rampages through the downtown of an American city, assaulting and hospitalizing people and robbing stores. The mayor calls for calm. And nobody outside that local media market, where it cannot be ignored, hears a thing about it. Now why would that be? Could it possibly be because surveillance video from a convenience store that was robbed shows all the miscreants were black?

When Barack Obama was running for president he promised, some say threatened, to fundamentally change America. The doubters now say he has fundamentally ruined America. Whichever way one views it, America is in serious decline. For a president that promised to reduce the national debt, Obama has added a massive seven trillion dollars to that debt. Under his presidency, America has accumulated as much new debt as it did in its first 227 years. He heads an Administration that produces food stamps, pries into people’s private lives, and sets government agencies against political opponents. Obama is following the guidebook of Saul Alinsky,

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript.

With high school seniors and their families now deciding where to enroll for college next fall, they might want to take a gander at research showing the best -- and worst -- values for a degree. The shocker in a survey by PayScale, a research firm that focuses on compensation, is that there are schools where students would have been better off not attending. Why? The 20-year net return on their college investment amounts to a financial loss, even when financial aid is included. Taking the time to get and spend money on a degree, in short, means you might actually find yourself in a financial hole. The survey may add to parents' doubts about

When atheist director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky promised that his epic "Noah" would be "the least biblical film ever made," that was not hyperbole. "Noah" is a brilliant, compelling, beautifully-mounted, beautifully-acted piece of storytelling conceived for the sinister purpose of leading people to believe that Christianity and Judaism are something they are not. (Snip) What does matter, though, is The Message. The Message is everything. And this is where Aronofsky is the snake in the garden. Using a $135 million, he and Paramount have brilliantly and deviously disguised the Pagan god Gaia as the God of the Old Testament … as THE God.
