RE: The woke capitalism thread [Get woke, go broke]
The funny part about Mulan is that I hear a lot of women sing the "Make a Man Out of You" song, and I already know it's going to be either removed or changed in a way to uplift the female.

These people miss the mark everytime. Every marketer of male entertainment has said that women follow what men think is popular. Sports, male action figures which spring up female action figures, cars with hot babes, Rambo action movies, boxing, mma, nascar, pro wrestling, if you can think of most male activities, you will see females behind it always. Naturally, all women follow what men like because they trust and like what men follow.

When you make female empowerment media, you are cutting yourself off from most of the audience. There is just one little problem that destroys the logistics of marketing, and it's that no one has the integrity or the patience to "stop" going to the movies. Think about it, you're a mom with your kids wanting to do something on the weekend. You're walking by and you see Live Action Mulan or Lion King or The Little Mermaid open for showing. Do you walk past it to avoid the circumstances of Disney's agenda, or does she pull them in to see it to give them something to do?

The latter happens more frequently, which is why Aladdin sold well despite the stagnation of the IP. We're not fighting a cultural war as much of a lack of gatekeepers. Priests are weak atm, and in fact are encouraging globohomo type entertainment. Masculine men are losing ground to sjws, estrogen infused men, and boys that don't want to leave their rooms. It reminds me of that line from Robocop where the tech company executive is talking to the crimelord going: "We're going to have 2 million living in trans [I cant for the life of me know what he was saying; sounded like trains]. That means drugs, gambling, prostitution...virgin territory for the man who knows how to open new markets." He's saying all this to entice the crimelord to do business with him. That is what happening today. Criminals have came in and subverted our culture with massive vices to distract us from the puppets that continue to direct our measly little lives and we have no one around to cut the strings. In fact, I don't think anyone wants us to cut the strings in fear of having to face the reality of meaningless lives.

Nobody needs to bother pushing white nationalism.

Non-whites are doing more to push things in that direction than any white dude could hope to achieve.

And when the scales finally tip it will probably blow all of us away at the speed it gathers momentum.

In the 80s and 90s it was small points, but did not destroy the stories. Even the movies in the 70s or 60s had a certain message, though to be fair - the topic/story was the message - anti-family/pro promiscuity/female empowerment or they were minor points.

Point is - if it's too blatant then no one cares and there is an automatic knee-jerk reaction against it.

From the Starbucks apology:

Quote: The barista said that a customer “did not feel safe” because of the police presence. The barista asked the officers to move out of the customer’s line of sight or to leave.

Disappointed, the officers did in fact leave.

This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening. While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019.

We know this is not a national policy at Starbucks Corporate and we look forward to working collaboratively with them on this important dialogue.

Actual photo of the customer who didn't feel safe:

Will all Starbucks close for a day to teach employees how to be more sensitive to the police?

I've noticed that within myself very recently. Once you see it for what it is, it actually becomes quite motivating! Reinforces my belief that I'm on the right track, when I may be feeling weak and doubtful.

Just off the top of my head, globohomo adverts and TV have compelled me to; lift when I'm 'too tired', cycle to work to fuck the taxman stick it to big oil, start growing my own food, seek out and talk to my neighbours (in real life). Honestly, many of these things originated through advert-rage!

This is hilarious - AXE hired Marvel to create some heroes for them:

   

https://www.newsarama.com/45890-marvel-a...h-men.html

So they had a Freshmen trailer on Youtube, but deleted it quickly.

Obviously the heroes are super-woke - fat Asian dude, fat black chick, SJW-feminazi chick - the lead is likely gay.

AXE seems to have pulled the plug instantly. Going to Marvel comics - the SJW epicenter - for any kind of advice is insane.

Otherwise, I agree. Fuck Axe, use natural baking soda.

RE: The woke capitalism thread [Get woke, go broke]
As if you did not have enough reasons to avoid Starbucks - here is another one:





6 cops walk into a Starbucks for a coffee (they are regulars) and they are asked to leave because one customer "felt triggered".

The cops then leave because that is the law. But it certainly raised their spirits.

I met a guy once who got triggered aggressively over cops. There were two policemen having their lunch-breaks and eating next to us, but that idiot started loudly proclaiming that he hates living in a police state. I asked him what he was smoking, because the country we were in was the most removed from a police state. You rarely even get a ticket for speeding there.

I think that guys who don't appreciate police should go research what happened in Brazil when the cops stopped working for a few days.

That is what happens when the people believe in the propaganda - you know the one that tells them to trust the government, that wants to enlarge the government, but you should hate the police and military at the same time.

Chinese filmgoers unhappy with Disney’s Ariel casting

[Image: halle-bailey-chloe-x-halle-2018-u-billboard-1548.jpg]

Quote:Chinese fans may love NBA players and African-American entertainers, but they’re upset with Disney’s decision to cast Halle Bailey to play Ariel in the live-action movie adaption of The Little Mermaid.

Disney announced the casting of 19-year-old Bailey, who is black, this week.

While the casting was largely praised on Western social media, it triggered a wave of disappointment and anger on the Chinese internet.

“I don’t discriminate against black people, but the Little Mermaid is just not black in my memory,” said one of the most liked comments on the Twitter-like Weibo.


“Is this mermaid from the Somali Sea?” another Weibo user said. “Don’t ruin my childhood, you big-head fish!”

Internet users are now openly criticizing Disney for casting Bailey.


“America is overdoing its political correctness,” a Weibo user commented under a screenshot of Bailey’s tweet, in which she celebrated the casting with a cartoon image of a brown-skinned mermaid.

China is the world’s second-biggest film market, and Hollywood is increasingly catering to its tastes and preferences.

The story of The Little Mermaid by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen is one of the best known and loved Western fairy tales in China. The iconic Disney cartoon character Ariel – with her porcelain skin, blue eyes and fiery hair – is widely recognized.

As in many parts of the world, Chinese audiences have become used to watching American blockbusters that feature mostly white leads. In Chinese films, attractive women are usually pale and thin.


The representation of different ethnicities on screen is rarely discussed publicly. Stereotypes about black people are common.

Black Panther, hailed as a Hollywood milestone for its casting, was a big hit in China last year. But it had prompted both subtle and overtly racist comments on the Chinese internet during its run.

The Chinese market often dwarfs the western one in terms of entertainment. It'll be interesting to see how Hollyweird handles it. I wouldn't expect them to change course but when it bombs globally I wonder if they'll think twice about pulling this again. Funny how in the west we have to be forcefed all this crap and the Twitter hivemind is seen as the unanimous opinion on entertainment.

Disney doesn't care. They gave you the anti-Western anti-White Ariel, but then put all their eggs in the Mulan basket for China. They even eliminated the magic elements from the original cartoon, because that might have put the movie on the ban-list in China. Also the castin is of course 100% pure ethno-nationalist also tailored for that market. They know that successful movies in China can make 300-600 mio. $ alone from that market.
And they likely held back with the woke crap for that movie.

Meanwhile in Ariel land it will be a massacre of epic proportions. Woke screams of racism even 1 year after the release.

An interesting comment from that Chinese guy that he grew up with "Ariel" as his childhood movie. You would think they would care more about Chinese heroes and heroines... Maybe they can relate to a white Ariel as being "like" Chinese but a black one is obviously a different race?

It's not that they need "representaton".

Popular Asian cartoons in the past and even now include clear European heroes and protagonists without even a Japanese/Chinese guy in sight. The reason for liking them is the same one Westerners like some Japanese/Chinese movies - not because of lack of Hollywood Whtie actors, but because they perfectly encompass a different culture that is very well liked - even if it is different to yours. The Little Mermaid has unversal story-telling themes and is liked. Just as everyone could identify with Blade - because he was a cool guy and his race did not matter and it wasn't even an issue back in those good old days.

What Hollywood is doing is akin to remake Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon with an all White and Black cast and then scream racism if anyone disagrees with it:
