    Revenant? Bear With Us! But That Traitor Trumbo Film? 


    As mentioned, I watched The Revenant this week, a good gripping yarn, the latest Leonardo Di Caprio adventure movie recording a badly injured man’s hazardous hunt for the man who murdered his son.

    —-

    I can confirm that the cause of the star’s condition was indeed a very grizzly bear, which, however, did not rape him.

    Di Caprio NOT Raped By Bear? Guardian’s Idea Of News! 

    No need for further details, just go see it, or buy the dvd like me and enjoy it at home.

    Yet while BAFTA was right to give Leonardo his award, what on earth is this hogwash film ‘Trumbo’ all about?

    I’ve covered something of the notorious Dalton Trumbo, a sleazy clandestine communist, before…

    ———–

    America’s Enemies Within – Then and Now! 

    …so rather than repeat all I said at the time, I give you an extract from an informed American report…

    Trumbo supported Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and North Korea’s Kim Il-Sung. He condemned Martin Luther King, Jr., for not being a true revolutionary. Yet, he is depicted in the film as just a family-friendly socialist and defender of the First Amendment in the film…

    Q: In what way does the movie hide or gloss over Trumbo’s Red record?

    A: All of his heavy-duty propaganda and activities on behalf of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin and the Communist Party are omitted. So is his vigorous support of Lenin, Adolph Hitler (during the Hitler-Stalin pact) and North Korea’s Kim Il-sung after his aggressive attack against South Korea in 1950. Even his membership in the American CP, which he eventually bragged about, is ignored….

    The villains in the movie, incidentally, are not the party members who worked covertly—and relentlessly—to turn Hollywood over to Moscow but the anti-Communist community who fought the Red conspiracy in the film industry—and won, at least for a time. Columnist Hedda Hopper, John Wayne, labor leader Roy Brewer, the House Un-American Activities Committee, the Motion Picture Alliance and other opponents of the Communists come in for a severe beating.

    Q: You say he was a “Stalinist” and a member of the Communist Party, facts that you argue are fundamentally ignored by the movie. But how do we know he was a party member?

    A: There is no question about his CP membership. In those famous 1947 hearings, the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) submitted material proving beyond a doubt that he was a party member, though Trumbo and nine other screenwriters and directors refused to respond to questions about party membership..

    .communism tyranny

    ….Trumbo finally admitted to his biographer, Bruce Cook, that he joined the party in 1943, and that “I might as well have been a Communist ten years earlier. But I’ve never regretted it. As a matter of fact, it’s possible to say I would have regretted not having done it…” Hollywood’s Despicable Hero Dalton Trumbo

    The red rat went to jail all too briefly, for his arrogant refusal to come clean in the hearings.

    But that was much less than he deserved. Now we have to watch ( if we’re masochists) movies making out he was a decent human being, which he damned well wasn’t. 

    Instead, he’s almost apotheosised and his cheer-leaders get a prize, posthumously, by proxy, some prejudiced pinko winning that BAFTA award for a film that white-washes subversion.

    ‘Sniper’ Shot Down! Oscars Illustrate Gap Between People and Gilded Elite 


    Barely a mention of the best box-office draw! Typical of the Hollywood snobbocracy, which chose to diss the movie-goers who provide them with their glitterati life-style, the Oscars all but ignored American Sniper.

     

    elite arrogance-s

     

    Ever EuroNews this morning felt obliged to mention this bizarre failure to recognise talent, a blatant PC bias against a film that celebrates patriotism.

    The in-crowd mind-set is sick, as I noted previously.

      Hollywood stinks, of treason. You are right on target with this.
      But there’s a new movie coming out about Vietnam. Maybe you can plug it because it finally tries to set the record straight. I’ll give you the link to where you can find out more about it.
