    Will France Sink To Indonesian Film Censor Levels? 


    The French have a lot of sense, hence the inane scheme to censor smoking from films has been met with widespread derision and mockery….

    .
    ====

    This latest imbecility is the brain (?)-child of Senator Nadine Grelet-Certenais…

    You can almost tell Grelet-Cetenais is a sticky-beak kill-joy, just by taking a look at her!

    =====

    “Seventy percent of new French films have at least one person in the process of smoking,” said Grelet-Certenais.

    OMG!

    ONE smoker in a whole movie?

    Armageddon surely looms!

    =

    But Macron’s Minister of Health is on the loony lady’s side!

    Agnès Buzyn agreed with the Senator…

    “I do not understand the importance of smoking in French cinema,” said Buzyn adding that she would speak to France`s Minister of Culture Françoise Nyssen about “denormalising the image of tobacco in society…”

    .- 

     

    ==

    DENORMALISING?

    What’s happened  to that ‘diversity’ these pinko prigs usually champion?

    Now Madame Busybody Buzin has pledged “firm action,” but whether or not that means a total prohibition on ciggies being seen on the screen we don’t yet know.

    WHAT A CROCK!

    It’s bad enough here in Jakarta, where the other night I surfed across the Trans TV movie, some guy being tied to a chair by thugs, bashed and battered…

    More or less irrelevant photo, but it’s nice, yeah?

    ====

    …but when they relented long enough to give him a fag (in the UK meaning, before anguished poofters get offended!) that horrific sight was obscured by the state censor’s opaque blob.

    However, I have railed in vain about Indonesian censorship of what we get to watch all too often…

    …so let’s ponder what else might befall film-goers, if this ‘denormalisation’ jackboot ‘process’ escalates.

     ….

    According to the Local,  Gallic wit has been impressively deployed against the dimwit plan,with one perceptive citoyen remarking that =

    “So I guess it will also be banned in the movies to use drugs, to go beyond the speed limits, to cross outside the nails, and of course to kill.

    ==

    ==

    Crime films will take a hit. They are completely crazy.”

    Even The Local’s reporter shows unexpectedly anti-censorship humour.

    ….questions have been asked about whether it would be necessary to delve into the archives and remove the cigarette butts completely.

      I must agree with you, Ross. Indonesian censorship is very annoying.
      Its a real shame if France of all place gives up on freedom the way that witchy woman senator wants.. .

      In the USA there’s hardly any censorship in the movie industry now, thanks to court rulings that equate obscenity with creativity.Of course there’s the unofficial censorship that makes patriotic movies a rarity, but that’s something else.

      It’s indicative of how sick Western society is that a film that glorifies pedophilia like Fifty Shades of Grey

      http://www.christianaction.org.za/index.php/articles/pornography/777-fifity-shades-of-grey-paedophilia-hiding-in-plain-sight

      can get rave reviews and these nincompoop politicians are worried about a hero or villain ( or even an extra playing a passer-by!) just enjoying a cigarette.

      Great photos!
      The narrow minded censorship in Indonesia is just as embarrassing and childish as you say, Ross..
      It’s hard to think that France could go down the same road.
      Too many kill-joys, as you so rightly call them.

      They make movies featuring queers and criminals and all kinds of other off-putting subjects and these stupid women want a ban on the cast having an occasional cigarette?

      Stupid idea. Cinema must show real life, so are there not smokers in France?
      I think yes there are.

      In Indonesia here we are not allowed to see the film Noah, because extremist do not like it, and many other crazy censorship actions. You often tell about this like the film Q and other films that jihadist forbid.
      I hope France will not go that way.

      Yes. Indonesia will go worse than France. We are already not allowed to see film like Noah, because Islamic intolerance.

    1st July, Dominion Day- Canada’s Rebel Needs You! 


    A Happy Dominion of Canada Day!

    How’s that for an ecumenical greeting, in view of the fact that Canada’s national day was called Dominion Day, until, for no apparent reason except dislike of tradition…

    Gambar terkait

    =======

    … and by dubious legislative sleight of hand, it was changed to Canada Day in 1982.

    But some up-to-date Canadian news to think about!

    The Toronto Globe and Mail is as left-lib as it gets, apart from the tax-funded state broadcaster CBC, so I was interested to read its piece on the cowardly leftist vendetta against ‘The Rebel,’ which is one of the few news sources run by conservatives in Canada.

    Advertisers bow to pressure to pull ads from The Rebel

    Fascist Left Targets Advertisers

    The bold reds are hiding behind something called ‘Sleeping Giants, an anonymous group‘ – how come these creeps don’t identify themselves? – which has used social media to pressure brands such as 7-Eleven, Dynamite clothing stores, PetSmart, the Royal Canadian Mint, the NCAA, BMW Canada… to stop placing ads with patriot Ezra Levant’s publication.

    To their shame, several advertisers have knuckled under to the yellow-bellied agitprop outfit, including the British Columbian ski resort Whistler Blackcomb.

    nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

     Let’s turn the heat on that icy resort!

    ——————

    In calling for the boycott of Whistler, Mr. Levant has said the resort is rejecting The Rebel’s readers and viewers.

    “Whistler-Blackcomb made it clear that the Rebel is simply ‘not their kind,’” he said in an e-mail.

    One hopes everyone in that part of the world will join in the consequent boycott of the resort. Rebel boss Levant inimitably summed up the witch-hunt thus –

    “All we have to go on here is the public virtue-signalling by a few junior Maoists bad-mouthing their own company’s customers as being politically unhygienic..

    ooooooooooooooo

    Of course Whistler Blackcomb should suffer, but a more significant company, Sears Canada, or at least its subsidiary, Corbeil Appliances, has shown its true PC colours by saying  its ads on The Rebel were an error.

     So let’s all treat Sears too as a leper business!


    And PetSmart…and Hudson’s Bay…and General Motors Canada…and…wait for it…

    ….the Royal Canadian Mint, which I always assumed was owned by tax-payers and should therefore not indulge in politically partisan discrimination.

    Not so!

    It IS owned by tax-payers, but…

    “Once we were informed of this particular ad, we consulted our agency…

    ….which informed us that this placement was inconsistent with the established guidelines used on our behalf and took appropriate action,” director of affairs Christine Aquino said.

    And the same with the Nova Scotia Liquor Corp.

    “We do our best to avoid advertising on any sites that could be viewed as extreme or offensive to our customers,” said Jennifer Gray, NSLC senior manager of communications.

    “Our values act as a lens to guide our business decisions, and advertising on this site just did not align.”

    Ottawa Tourism, also, received feedback from followers on social media.

    “Tourism is supposed to make you feel good. … So we wanted to be in a positive space,” spokesperson Jantine Van Kregten said.

    WANTED TO BE IN A POSITIVE PLACE?

    How inarticulate can a ‘media’ spokesman get?

    =

    More importantly, do decent conservative Canadians ‘feel good‘ about the ‘negative place,‘ which is how they must surely regard their capital city in view of such politically-motivated priggishness.

    Canadians with conservative or nationalist opinions, like all other Canadians, have to fund, through taxes, these arrogant bureaucrats who apply political prejudice as to what constitutes acceptable ‘values.’

    ===

    =====

    It’s shameful that allegedly apolitical public servants impose advertising sanctions against any media that dare reflect values ‘diverse’ from the left-liberal elite!

    The Globe and Mail breathlessly tries to explain this sicko targetting of The Rebel by telling us that some elements of the site are more questionable.

    Frankly, a lot of the stuff I have seen in the Globe and Mail over the years is MORE  than questionable!

    I’ll bet plenty of Canadians feel the same. But I’m pretty damned sure the federal, provincial and city governments, and liquor boards, advertise therein!

    0000000

    So on this patriotic day, Canadians should rally round The Rebel, and how to do so can be found on the link below.

      I admire Ezra Levant because he always tells the truth and is not afraid to tell us truths the government wants to hide, like the trouble so many of those Syrians Trudeau has brought into Canada are causing,
      Even in our schools their bullying the Canadian kids. It’s a scandal Trudeau doesnt care and the Conservatives are too sh-t-scared of the media to say anything.
      Levant has done a lot of good on exposing this, .
      So I support all you say here but a real win would be getting CBC out of our pockets.
      I wish the Tories or any party had the balls to promise that.
      It would get them my vote.
