My “Inspiration,” now apparently scrubbed at the behest of CNN’s Commie-overlords.
From the back cover:
It’s Election Night – in the current year – and as midnight approaches, Presidential candidate Mallory Denton is not just hiding out from her volunteers and supporters, she’s up to her neck in hot water. Literally. And she’s using plenty of bubbles and top-donor-provided bubbly to sooth her psyche.
Make some popcorn, kick back for the evening, and enjoy a politically-incorrect homage to the Dickens’ classic, “A Christmas Carol.” Love her or hate her, one thing’s certain: if Mallory heeds the warnings her heavenly visitors are about to deliver, then both Heaven and Hell will have to wait!
Join a cast of all too familiar beltway characters in this Presidential Election tale that’s frequently funny, sometimes annoying, and spot-on scathing. Best of all, this campaign lasts just one night, delivering a mash-up of “House of Cards” treachery and “Bedazzled” hijinks as smoothly as a seasoned career politician flings her promises while out on the stump.
(Note: I watched the first 6 episodes Friday, the next 3, last night. It was a total coincidence that I started writing this only to discover one of the actors from the show, Lafayette, died yesterday.)
How do you watch six episodes of “TrueBlood” in one day?
You start early!
A better question, though, is: What “woke me” to the insidious Anti-Life, Anti-White nature of the series? Simply…it was the brutal, bloody killing of main character SOOKIE Stackhouse’s “GRAN.” It really hurt, because she was, seemingly, the nicest character on the show.
I waited and hoped it was only a vision or a dream…hoping Hollywood would rescue the old gal with what had, before this, seemed the ubiquitous stage direction: “And then INSERT-MAIN-CHARACTER-HERE woke up.”
But they didn’t so she didn’t, and so the sweet southern Gran many viewers wished we could have had, too, remained dead. She didn’t die in vain because that plot-point allowed me to wake up and see through the literal “programming.” (In my disappointment I vowed to not watch another episode, but, of course, Vampires being what Vampires are, I proceeded the following night to watch three more installments.)
Today, however, (though not wearing silver!) I rescued myself from any further desire-to-view-those-Vampires by: 1) binge-reading all 7 seasons’ episode summaries online; 2) searching out a few short videos explaining character-secrets revealed in those descriptions; and 3) watching a couple 7 minute end-of-series video clips, nicely wrapping “TrueBlood” all up with the blood-soaked gory bow I probably would have foreseen, if I’d cared enough about Sookie, et al, to project it forward.
Here are the main Themes the author-plus-studio-plus-co-authors proclaim:
1) Black racial-Resentment…the black chick, TARA, put a pretty face on Black anti-White resentment. But schizophrenically, she goes ahead and jumps in the sack (i.e. race-mixes-it-up) with two different White men within an episode or two of one another!
2) Black + Male + Gay = Irresistible…Named for an old dead White war monger, LAFAYETTE, was the sweet, loveable gay cook in the central bar/restaurant in the series. He gleefully jokes (to rowdy “rednecks,” so they are required to listen in humiliated silence) that sure, he serves “AIDS burgers” and AIDS everything else, for that matter. There you go. Whites are racist if they’re concerned about food safety, because everybody, don’t you know, is just as likely to be HIV-positive as a male homosexual. Um-m-Hm-m…
3) GRAN was probably also in the Klan, don’t you know…the old gal seemed nice, but prominently featured, no doubt for progressives’ enjoyment, was her “Glorious Dead” NAZI-Confederate worship. She practically bills and coos over Vampire-BILL once she learns he was in the War (“…for Southern Independence”). His old-school southern charm is probably what blinds her to the life and death danger her granddaughter SOOKIE is in, being around him. Doesn’t she know that the current culture leaves no one, even a 200-year-old, unsullied? Trigger–Warning: the Confederate Battle Flag has not been digitally erased from at least one episode.
4) Vampire-Johnny Reb, O.K.; Iraq-War vets, scary…it seems odd for Hollywood not to make more of the evils of the Confederacy, but I guess they figured because the whole show was in large part a middle-finger to the South, they’d give ol’ Vampire-BILL a break. (Or perhaps there are countless teachable North vs. South moments in gory flashback in the remaining 70+ episodes). The Iraq-War vet is made out to be hair-triggered if not crazy. Oh, he’s also self-deprecating. In one episode it was natural to chalk up to his post-war “crazy” his report of seeing a main character running naked through the woods.
5) White Men are mostly stupid and unattractive…except for the glamourous Vampire-BILL and city Vampire-Eric. The bar owner, SAM, is kind of attractive in a lightweight metrosexual way, but that trailer he crashes in? Ew-w-w. It ought to act like normal-girl repellent.
Sookie’s brother, typically-shirtless-JASON, could be boyishly cute if he ever had a clean STD report and showered/de-greased every couple of episodes. Within the first six or seven episodes he’d slept with four different women, but, six seasons later, surprise, surprise, he was still alive and in a clip from a wedding. I figured he’d have died of syphilis well before that.
The cajun dude, RENE, builds up to his stupidity slowly. We finally find out he’s living with but not married to the red-haired 3-time divorcee waitress, ARLENE. He’s also “helping” her raise her two young kids right: by showing them it isn’t necessary to put-a-ring-on-it first. Nice! Note: they are the ONLY contemporary kids in all the episodes I watched. What swell family-values, right? Oh, how the 8-9 year old girl squeals joyfully when her mommy declares she can be her “flower girl…again!”
Lastly, there’s the doofus White duo (Sheriff and Detective) and the pervy White Medical Examiner. None of the murders in the first few episodes seem to generate urgency or case files or clues from townspeople, thanks to these downright unattractive nitwits. Honestly, have you seen, since “Reno 911,” a less competent farce of a police force?
The detective, though, magically (?) has enough free time to track down a nudist-colony in Beaumont, Texas, just to offer HBO or “TrueBlood’s” director an opportunity to throw in a few old, White, naked behinds. All to prove bar-owner SAM lied about his parents. Wow! Great “detecting.” Meanwhile, the dead bodies remain stacked up in the pervy guy’s cooler (I presume/hope).
6) White women are stupid and pretty much hoes, except for SOOKIE, who’s virginal…before she becomes Vampire-BILL’s meal+sex ticket. Afterwards she’s a COOL HOE. She’s also under Vampire-pimp-BILL’s protection (except during the daylight…). I call him a pimp because ultimately he’s forced by protocol to take Sookie to do the bidding of Vampire-ERIC.
Why, in this world, is there no lecturing girls on the dangers of uber-powerful vampires or STDs or powerful vampires with STDs? Oh, right, in “this world” such mundane topics aren’t any fun, either.
The only lecturing allowed in TrueBlood is about White-on-Black RACISM:
1) White bankers are RACIST if they don’t give money to alcoholics who happened to be Black and unemployable.
2) Rude White “rednecks” (i.e. men deemed unattractive or otherwise unacceptable to main characters) are RACIST if they question the prudence of food preparation by a practicing male homosexual drug-dealer who happens to be Black.
3) A White guy is called RACIST by the Black chick after he mentions she “grunts” during the sex they just had together. She’s the one who brought up a grunting Black tennis player, even though White players are currently known for doing it, and have been known for the behavior for decades longer than the Williams sister mentioned.
In the end, if you choose to spend 81 hours of your life on this entire series, immersed with the cast of and in the mindset of “TrueBlood” creators (after reading this), ASK what benefits you’ll be left with; anything uplifting about the stories; any positive lessons to be learned? (Especially if you are White and already susceptible to being “guilted” by our progressive culture warriors.)
Because what happens when well-meaning non-progressives partake of progressive politics? It depends. For example, like when thoughtful, rational, (albeit, naive) Lauren Southern goes to do street reporting and learn from the G20 events in Hamburg, Germany, She presumed about it like I did about “TrueBlood:” lots to be learned! (Spoiler-Alert: Not what we thought.)
In my case, I was naively certain such a popular show had information about the contemporary Vampire genre that’d be useful for my own fiction projects. Instead, I learned (again) just what Hollywood thinks of We-The-between-the-coasts-People generally, and southerners more specifically.
They think we’re
Beer & drug guzzling lowlifes.
Who’d jump at the chance to be ensnared in a vampiric living-death futureless (i.e. childless, i.e. dead end) existence. Or is it Hollywood’s “wishful scriptwriting?”
Unexpected lessons for Lauren Southern on the streets of Germany were Where Not to Create your Hearth & Home (Germany), and just how critical Self-Determination & Self-Defense (and its tools, like guns or even pepper-spray) truly are. Then there was the gut-level lesson of Run & Hide in order to Survive, hopefully for long enough to get out of Dodge. But she “ran” to the “relative safety of London,” as she (or Stefan) noted. Seriously. London? The-recent-site-of-several-Islamic-State-terror-attacks is NOT a picture of “safety.”
Lauren revealed her darkest G20 discovery in speaking with Stefan Moyneux: that the “Black Block/Antifa” wants only one thing beyond partying, looting, and burning…“Busting the heads of Capitalists & NAZIS,” like they literally perceive her to be. All that, yet STILL she refuses to tear up her I’m-A-Strong-21st century-Woman card. She steadfastly proclaims she’s not a victim.
Well, I say, “You aren’t a ‘victim,’ yet, Lauren.” I pray very soon she’ll admit that the front lines are NOT the place for females. I pray that she’ll come to understand that there is nothing shameful in admitting that! Frontline COMBAT is no place for 99% of women, they lack the body+bone-mass of men, not to mention the bare-handed combat skills many men more naturally have acquired in life. And no offense, Lauren, that’s a 1% you simply don’t appear to be in.
Similarly, for me to have expected HBO’s “TrueBlood” to be part of the 1%, non-progressive, i.e. Life-Affirming, entertainment? Well, that was just as naive as Lauren expecting black-swaddled thugs to give her man-on-the-street interviews. I hope this “TrueBlood” encounter+analysis will spare others from entering the twisted base-pleasure-seeking, cunning childlessness, and entrenched anti-Life, anti-White “entertainment,” blindly.
If you do take a taste of the show and disagree with my take on it, let me know where we differ.
Saw this article on DRUDGE(R) today (it is also included in the Live-linked PDF, following) and I’m pretty confident it’s a clever stunt by teacher, Gene Ponder. I mean, what high-school kid can resist tracking down what now is essentially a…
It was January 14, 2017, when I discovered a new version of “The Handmaid’s Tale” was scheduled to air this year. Since I was still weeks away from finishing the first draft of my new novella, “An Election Carol,” I hated that I couldn’t drop everything and fire off a fictional response-volley towards Margaret Atwood’s 1986 novel.
UNLESS the new trailers are depicting a satire, it will certainly demand a response…
Atwood’s entire premise was delusional in 1986’s America, but today? Even more so. Think back to the mid-1980’s: America’s most well-known Christian organization, The Moral Majority, never had all that much political pull, despite all the hullabaloo. Even Wikipedia reveals it was kaput by the late-80’s. And as for the 2016 election and the feared Fourth-Reich with Trump-hitler at the helm? We can all see the neo- “con” that’s turning out to be…
“The Handmaid’s Tale,” was a first for me – I call it Christian-Theocracy-Porn (the film version of “V-for-Vendetta,” fits the genre, also). I expect this 2017 version to get fairly graphic; it will be easy to incorporate a number of the handmaidens’ bedroom scenes, and it makes perfect Hollywood-sense to do so. “50 Shades…” has shown there’s a big appetite among the Western world’s women for coercive sex. The Hulu trailers on YouTube have already provided a couple of quote-gems:
With my novella’s final edits getting accepted today, I’m free to man the battle-stations and pull out my reviewer’s notebook for the Hulu “porno” premiere tonight. I just can’t wait to see how bravely they step out and how boldly they step into the Handmaiden-shoes Hollywood has let collect dust for nearly 30 years.
BUT, BUT, BUT…How will the writers and producers dare take New Testament Bible Scriptures in vain? Don’t they fear sleeper-cells of mad-Christian-men? Are they prepared to fight off Chalie Hebdo style anti-free-speech fanatics, like in Paris? And just how far over backwards will the “creatives” at Hulu have to bend, all to avoid creating any resemblance to the actual world of “disturbed” Islamics we live in…and where we get run over…and sliced-up, and blown-up, and every-which-way-murdered?
We non-Muslims, we so-called infidels, have suffered more than 30,000 attacks by “misunderstanders of Islam” since September 11, 2001. Just how far into the sand will “The Handmaid’s Tale” stick its pretty little head in order to avoid all of that truth?
I guess we’ll see.
Imagine…a world where little boys grow up to reject the Holy-sacrament of abortion…
It’s easy, if you try. (Start by looking at the tiny body parts in those glass “pie-plates” in The Center for Medical Progress’ expose videos.)
And isn’t it wonderful that “God-fearing” America is so great already, that we forced Planned Parenthood out of business because we finally came face-to-face with the whole damned bloody truth, and all those baby-bodyparts’ buyers and sellers are rotting in prison now?
It’ll be a bargain at only $1.99.
Unplug the TV-Drug for a night and enjoy a 21st-century take on the Charles Dickens’ classic, wherein former Presidential-candidate, Mallory Denton, plays the part she was born to: “Scrooge.” (Check here, on my Amazon author page, or read the latest here on the blog, for availability.)
As a supporter, now a recent viewer of the film, I similarly presumed going on Jaye’s documentary-adventure, “The Red Pill,” would hold no big surprises for me. Famous last words…but why so cocky, you ask?
I was Red-Pilled Long Ago…Who Would’ve Thought I Had So Much to Learn
I’ve been aware of the Men’s Rights Movement (via avoiceformen.com) since late 2011 – participating actively there for several years: commenting often and writing a few pieces that Paul Elam published on the site. My most cherished memories of “those days” are the many amazing people and speakers I met (see photos in collage, above) at AVFM’s first International Conference on Men’s Issues in 2014, which had to be moved from downtown Detroit to a nearby suburb, “thanks” to credible threats of terrorism…from Feminists.
(A portion of the footage Jaye uses in the film even came from that conference, including some of a Warren Farrell speech, the by-the-lake Honey Badger interviews, and a panel featuring anti-paternity-fraud champion Carnell Smith (paternityfraud.com/linkspage.html).)
To Boldly Go Where No Feminist Typically Dares to Go…Unless It’s To Disrupt
Cassie Jaye is a young women who boldly went where most of her Feminist sisters will never go…to their ideological opposition. Even more radical, was how she went: NOT screaming, NOT blockading, and NOT making threats of violence, but rather, with a willingness to listen. To learn. And to reconsider, even jettison, intellectual inconsistencies, without regard for the personal paradigm-shifts such honesty can bring.
We viewers get to witness the earliest part of this “shift,” I believe, in one of her video-diary segments (1:20:00). I got emotional right along with her. It’s not often an individual can feel the philosophical pillars of their world trembling beneath their feet and yet resist running from the room, even the building, screaming in protest. For her to stay and ride it out come what may? Courageous. Bravo.
I had to get out a notebook as I watched and listened, just like I had at that 2014 conference. I’m betting you will, too. The following people, moments, and insights were the ones that stood out most for me. I’d love to know your unique take-away or perhaps your gut reaction to this grand filmmaking effort.
Feminism Only Exists in The West Because of CHIVALRY – I Never Realized That Before
Fred Hayward* was a new MRA to me, though he has been in the fight for many years. He made a bold yet spot-on observation (00:17:00) about one of Big-Feminism’s stock-in-trade claims. Oh, how they love to spout off about how “Male-WORK is valued above women’s,” and now with the creation of their so-called Pay-Gap, they have finally found a concrete embodiment of a fundamental bio/behavioral difference between the sexes. Which was the only way to intrigue and then mobilize the mob, i.e. to bring the cerebral “fight” down to the physical street level.
As Cassie Jaye and Hayward discuss the matter, she masterfully illustrates in the film, the difference in Value isn’t because women are worth-less. Feminists conveniently FAIL to notice the unseen benefits the “Systemic Chivalry” (my term) has always afforded women. It has always protected them from literally dangerous jobs, from highly probable dangers, and even from possible dangers (0:16:30+).
In short, “Women’s LIVES are more valued than men’s.”
Proving It By-the-Numbers (Again Surprising Me)
I didn’t realize that even in today’s Strong-Independent-Don’t-Need-No-Man mantra-soaked era, Chivalry was still systemic. As Sully Sullenberger made his amazing January 2009 Hudson River landing (00:18:00), the invisible chivalrous Patriarchy was rearing its ugly head. That freezing cold New York afternoon, the Patriarchy decided whose SAFETY was paramount. Did it pick the rich or First-Class passengers? Or a survival-of-the-fittest line? Or a randomly-formed one? Nope. Nope. Nope.
It chose “women and children” to be rescued first! Just as Hayward had said. The good, hardworking, and honorable women, and any who may have been deceitful, treacherous, or violently bad muthas (and all flavors in between). ALL of the ones with the genital-V had the red-blood-soaked cape of Female Privilege laid across that particular day’s “mud puddle,” granting them a speedier less harrowing – safer – exit.
Another related personal surprise I got from watching “The Red Pill” came moments earlier (00:17:30+). You’ve heard the barrage of media chatter proclaiming Equality, Equality, my kingdom for Women’s Equality and how it needs, oh, golly, it needs to apply to the Military or, or, we’ll all just die…meaning it’s a woman’s right to be a front-line (even Elite unit) warrior. Jaye, however, animates Hayward’s point – that Women’s Lives Are More Precious – via a dramatic tallying-up of War-Death stats. Over 98% of them have been and are still American MEN. The fighting, bleeding, and dying in all the war zones shown – from Korea up to today – is, has, and likely always WILL BE done by men.
Hillary Clinton: Chivalrous? I Think So
The pièce de résistance of the current purposeful undermining of the American military (and proving the perpetual Equal-Rights sans Equal-Responsibility Hypocrisy of feminists and most of their LEFTIST cheerleaders), comes at (1:43:30), just ten minutes before the end of the film. Listen carefully to that February 2016 clip of an Anderson Cooper town hall; it only lasts a few moments. In it, Cassie Jaye allows the wannabe Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, candidate-Hillary Clinton, to hoist herself on her own Patriarchy-Bad…But-But-Chivalry petard.
Not many viewers, red-pilled by the content so far, are likely to be surprised as über-feminist Clinton does what politicians often do best: she dodges a golden-bullet of an opportunity to display her Women’s Equality chops. But proud Grandma Clinton just CAN’T bring herself to answer Cooper in the affirmative, to support women (to include her precious grand-daughter!) being required by Law to REGISTER for the draft. (Note: she then pivots to something “universal” and a hell of a lot less dangerous to women…voter-registration.
How’s that for a woman claiming to have spent an entire career fighting for women’s & girls,’ privileges, er, rights?
Beware of Playing with Leftists: Just When You Think You Know Where the Goalposts Are They Will Move Them
Other than the filmmaker’s personal video-diary “entries,” it’s impossible to know how much of the other information is presented in chronological order. I sincerely wish I knew. Her interview with Erin Pizzey (1:16:00+), a true champion and iconic figure in the pioneering of domestic violence shelters, reveals how a key Feminist Change of Course occurred back around 1970. Pizzey says the ideology needed a new “cause” to keep themselves in the media spotlight (and more importantly, to keep the government-subsidies rolling in). So it was at this point the female Marxists among them dropped the “Capitalism” ball (thereby kicking the goal of Socialism/Communism to the side), while they picked up the nuclear-family-annihilating Patriarchy “ball.”
From 1970 forward, All-Men became the Enemy of All-Women (whether the women recognized it or not). Oh, and the sweet, sweet Goalposts in The War of the Sexes, now, could waft here and there and back again, in an ever amorphous fog called quote-unquote Equality…of everything, everywhere, from now on, and for all time, until…when, exactly?
Until that glorious day (in the less foggy Future) when Feminists pronounce from the mountain top: We’re finally happy because everything is now Equal “enough.” Or not.
We’ve Only Just Begun…The War Between the Sexes or 100-Years War II?
“Angel of light,” Katherine Spillar, executive editor at Ms. Magazine, all grins at one point, shares the depressing news with Jaye (0:38:00+), that those evil MRA’s are full of hot air: “We (women) are just BEGINNING to get an even playing-field here; it’s NOT tilted-in-our-favor, and they (those pesky MRA’s) know it…” Translation: MRA’s claims of bias, hostility, reverse discrimination, in short a growing systemic inequality towards Men, are all lies.
So, don’t stop protesting, or burning your bras, yet girls. Or crafting 3-D fabric vajay-jays to wear to those spontaneous marches (for example, A Day Without a Woman, March 8, 2017).
I have to wonder if Cassie had video (and cut it out) where she asks Ms. Spillar: “Um, ma’am, since this scam, I mean, fight, is running so long into overtime, shouldn’t we maybe stop aborting all our kids so they can keep it up after we’re dead and gone?”
The Ultimate Hypocrisy: Women As Victim is the Opposite of Empowerment (Duh)
21st century feminists are as dependent on Chivalry as any Medieval maiden. The difference? Women today shout all day long they’re Strong and Independent, while their actions – and the media’s covering fire – continually proclaim them as Victims. Sometimes it’s so subtle, the Blue Pilled will never notice. When it’s literal (“partner violence” or “parent-child” violence), and the companion stats prove women are nearly as violent towards their male partners or children, well, that information is swept under the rug. (Not literally of course, feminists don’t “do” floors.)
A more powerful illustration of the MSM’s use of cover language to gain empathy and action for females, while ignoring the plight of men and boys, would be hard to find than the news stories the film covers from Africa (1:29:00+). The sequence of headline after headline covering Boko Haram’s Islamic massacres of mostly boys and men is contrasted with their kidnapping of young women and girls. Who received the greater coverage and who actually suffered the greater harm (death)?
Speaking of Bogeymen
Karen Straughan (1:39:35+) a.k.a. Girl Writes What, is a well known and well-respected MRA. In her short appearance she succeeds brilliantly at the impossible. She manages to get her hands around the throat, capturing the essence of that Patriarchal fog monster created nearly a half-century ago by Big-Feminism. To paraphrase her religious analogy: “Patriarchy” is Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Invisible, and Bad. Really Bad. To her, it sounds like Patriarchy is identical to The Devil! Meanwhile, up on Earth…Feminism is, she says, that beautiful, harmless, and put-upon Force-for-Justice, presumably I’d suggest, on a white horse and holding aloft a gleaming set of government-certified scales. She-Whom-We-All-Have-Been-Waiting-For (…And-Must-Obey).
Straughan then shines her laser light closer in on the evil hypocrisy of feminists, excoriating them for feigning innocence when they claim they’re, “…not blaming Men…we’re just naming everything-bad after Men.” (Here is her must-see talk from the ICMI 2014 conference. Here’s her YouTube Channel.)
Better Life-Lessons Than Those From “Hollywood”
Most of us have binge-watched something. And it was likely a pretty un-enriching experience. Sure, the famous Life-lesson, “Just be faster than one other person,” that we got from that “Walking Dead” all-nighter is pretty funny…but now you’ve snapped out of the TV trance, it’s of course completely useless. Points made in “The Red Pill’s” mere two-hours, on the other hand, will be worth the time invested in a real-world practical way. Even if you’re not naturally inclined to grab a notebook and scribble madly during documentaries!
Based upon my experience, both in the world of the MRM and in watching this film about it, I can guarantee 100% that you will learn something unique and valuable. And because I believe this so strongly, I’m very confident that if you watch it with an open mind (and heart) – intuitively grasping the significance – you will become a better person for having done so.
I hope you will take the transformative Red-Pill journey made possible by this amazing young filmmaker, and then pass it on to others.
