Michael Stuart Kelly Posted February 23, 2018 Share Posted February 23, 2018 Black Panther - How did this happen? I haven't seen Black Panther yet, but my stepson Sean did. He's a huge Marvel superhero fan. He loved it. Since he is semi-autistic, things like racism confuse him. I noticed in his comments about the movie, he didn't talk about race. Yet that's all they talked about in the marketing hoopla before the film What happened? Well, OK... That's Sean. But then I started seeing some other things. For example, John Nolte wrote the following review at Breitbart: ‘Black Panther’ Review: The Movie’s Hero is Trump, the Villain is Black Lives Matter Nolte did some follow-up articles on Black Panther, see here and here. Looks like Hollywood, for all it's virtue signaling, found a sneaky way to appeal to Trump supporters. I'm serious. People who identify with President Trump had greatly diminished their presence at the theaters. Yet they turned out in droves to see Black Panther. Of course, the intelligentsia in Hollywood are giving birth to a cow over Nolte's observation, but the truth is, money moves Hollywood, not virtue or political agenda. Still, many lefties are in powerful positions. And they are not stupid people. So how did these Hollywood lefties allow this "on the nose" level of metaphorical fit to happen in a movie about black people with an all black cast? I think there's a dirty little secret they don't talk about but all bow down to. The intelligentsia can sneak in their leftie agenda and propaganda so long as the movies make money. When they stop making money, the Hollywood suits look at what normal paying folks believe and serve up entertainment geared to that profile. And with this project, they covertly made an appeal to woo back Trump supporters. I stand in awe that they made a black dude in a black movie a symbolic President Trump and a black villain in a black movie a symbolic Black Lives Matter, but there it is. And it worked. The money doesn't lie. Nolte is not the only one who sees this. Ms. Candace Owens (Red Pill Black) noticed, although she focused on the immigrant angle and keeping grievance movements out of the hidden land. This President Trump metaphor connection with Black Panther is going to turn into a thing in our culture. It really is. Then the intelligentsia will start giving birth to whales, not just cows. Andrew Breitbart always said politics is downstream from culture. It looks like culture has run downstream from politics this go around.
