He’s undoubtedly a vegetarian global warmist, too

 

oh, the shame of it all

oh, the shame of it all

Guardian columnist  Steve Rose bemoans the racism in cartoons.  There is so much to enjoy in this interminable exercise in self-flagellation by a white liberal that I strongly advise you to wade through the whole thing, but here’s just a tiny representative sample:

Like many animated stories, Planes hinges on the premise of an exceptional individual who dreams of transcending their allotted role in life – in this case, an ambitious crop duster (voiced by Dane Cook). The other planes ultimately help him by donating parts. It’s the same story in Turbo. Ryan Reynolds’ snail also harbours racing ambitions, and is aided by street-talking comic-relief sidekicks voiced by Samuel L Jackson, Snoop Dogg and Michelle Rodriguez, among others. And let’s not forget Turbo’s human accomplices: some Mexicans who run a taco stand and The Hangover’s Ken Jeong as a Vietnamese woman. Social mobility is only available to white characters, the message seems to be, and it’s the job of non-whites to facilitate it.

It’s a wonder poor Steve can leave his bed in the morning to go watch these assaults on human dignity.

    Dude –
    Dude Man. Dudester. Duderino. This guy is an asshole. Pardon my French.
    He sickens me. Let’s challenge him to a debate. He curses cartoons? When we are all above mocking ourselves, seeing us for the stupid, vile, unjust people we all really are, then we have lost it all. You, being on top of the stupid chain, should see that best. Correct? You vile little penis dummy whacker!!
    STEVE ROSE IS AN ASSHOLE!! His view of the world is bifurcated, obtuse, dense, dull, insensitive, uncomprehensive and DENSE!! And I bet he is a vile Brit!! Tell him to call me and we will settle this once and for all. We got Wile E. Coyote. Who does he have? We have Superman, Bat Man and Aqua Man. I never really got Aquaman. And Bat Girl!! She I would like to bang.
    So who is this Limey homo? Our Super Hero’s will kick his fish and chip’s ass.
    And Wonder Woman!! I forgot her!! Totally doable!!
    Your Pal,
    Walt

      Once when I was visiting Princeton I saw a talent show production with a skit featuring Brooke Shields as Wonder Woman. It was totes awesome.

    Anyone see Jay-Z at Knock game and the neclace he was wearing. Turns out he belongs to the Five Percent Nation. So what exactly do Five Percenters believe?

    “The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally,” says Michael Muhammad Knight, an author of two books on the radical group.
    “Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”

    The group was founded in 1964 in Harlem by Clarence Smith, who later changed his name to Allah, a former student of Malcolm X who disagreed with the Nation of Islam over the nature of God.

    Ahem, that would be a Vegan Fruitarian: no dairy or eggs like the inadequately committed Vegetarian, and the fruit must fall off the tree first, or it shouldn’t be eaten (that’s murder). No idea how they get the vegetables out of the ground, though…

    And if it was the other way round with the ” ethnic” plane needing help to transcend their lot, that would also be deemed racist. It’s a Gordian knot of useless guilt.

  6. those animated portrayals are unfair in so many ways:

    Can’t you just feel this poor man’s pain and anguish? He’s practically bleeding all over the place. With a heart that bleeds so profusely surely he must be forced to compensate his illegal alien house keeper, accordingly.

    Whatever shall we do for these poor, tender souls so aggrieved by the travails and vagueries of navigating a cold cruel world fraught with injustice, inequality, and intolerance? Especially those evidenced in those damned animated movies.

    Surely we can find it within ourselves to provide some means of easing this tortured heart’s suffering through the lifeless, dystopic wasteland of his meager existence?

    Is it not incumbent upon we, the the fortunate cloud dwellers to lift up our fellow trodden upon man, mining the Zenite, know his pain, and embrace it as our own?

    I propose we crank up a 501c3 intent upon funding a oneway ticket to Switzerland’s “Make It All Go Away, I can’t Take It Anymore!” Dr. Kevorkian clinic for all those in such critical need of relief from this heinously cruel and injustice world.

    It’s the least we can do, don’t you think? It is to sob..wail…pass the tissues?

      The planet Ardana is the only known source of Zenite. The Troglytes weren’t looking for a handout but merely holding back the Zenite they had already mined in order to bring the Council of Stratos to the negotiating table, the ramifications of which could have repercussions throughout the entire Confederation.

    JayZ drives a bentley.

    • AJ

      The only reason JayZ drives a Bentley is because he can’t get his hands on a Wraith.

      • i always feel sorry for Clint Howard when i see him in those crappy movies

        • AJ

          Yes, but he will be forever immortalized in one of the most classic lines ever spoken in the history of television, “This is Tranya.” Bet you can’t remember a single one of his brother Opie’s lines.

        • TheWizard

          Clint was awesome as Balok.

          His fame immortalized thanks to one 5 minute role.

        Disturbingly, There was a rumor rumbling around these parts not too terribly long ago that Jay Z and co. were scoping out property, nearby.

        Needless to say, this caused some concern and alarm since no one wants that element and what undoubtedly comes in tow, out here. There were multiple sightings of an unknown black Lambo ripping around the smaller, outer boroughs and showing interest in an estate that had just come on the market. A black Lambo with 2 black Escalades in it’s wake. I didn’t see it because the spread in question (that’s what they call them out here “spreads”) doesn’t border any of our property. What I can tell you is that the alarm raised over those sightings led to one or two lively meetings at the local gun clubhouse.

        What I do know for certain is that the 623 acre “spread” that was on the market for all of 3 days suddenly dropped off the radar within a week of those sightings. Substantial rumors remain, but we all know what happened.
        Several years ago, the same thing happened when an out-of-state pig farming operation planned to set up shop, 1000 acres, split 3 ways and no pig farm.

        It doesn’t matter that parcels are so large that one would never be in danger of even seeing a neighbor’s house. What matters is the fact that it’s owner occupied and neither that particular exotic nor it’s entourage have been seen, again.

        Needless to say, “diversity” doesn’t count for much out here. Not when it comes to property value preservation, that is.

    “But first, the Tranya” OMG, that was SO bad.

    I just love those old reruns.

    Just outta curiosity, ever wonder what the IPO of Zenite would be?
