Netflix – A New Ally In The Fight For Social Justice

As Hollywood directors continue to inject anti-racism, anti-sexism and anti-bigotry messages into their movies, many alt right bigots have looked to Netflix as an alternative source of entertainment. And indeed, shows like House Of Cards and Narcos do appear to be largely devoid of progressivism and have proven popular with those who refuse to accept prevailing progressive narratives. However, just like Vice, Netflix has since adopted the message of social justice fullheartedly, and is now actively promoting a host of radical progressive shows and documentaries.

Take for example the upcoming Netflix series “Dear White People”, which in the trailer features a group of black activists lecturing whites and physically assaulting them for wearing inappropriate Halloween costumes. The trailer for this series received an incredible amount of hate from angry privileged whites, garnering over 250,000 dislikes in 24 hours, and later over 1,000,000 dislikes.

This level of blowback clearly indicates that we are not doing nearly enough as progressives to spread our message, so logically we need to double down and put out even more left-leaning entertainment.

Up next we have the BAFTA winning and Academy Award nominated documentary “13th”, in which social justice activists, politicians and academics detail the systematic criminalization of African Americans and systemic racism in the justice system. Despite winning numerous awards, the average rating for this documentary on Netflix is quite poor, indicating once again that progressives are on the right track.

Netflix is airing another Academy Award nominated documentary called the “The White Helmets”, which documents the courage and bravery of this well known humanitarian group as they save Syrian womyn and children from Assad’s brutal regime. Again, despite being nominated for an Academy Award and being universally acclaimed by accredited critics, Netflix viewers once again gave it a poor rating.

Netflix should be commended for increasingly airing films and documentaries with important social justice messages, despite the backlash from viewers. The role of entertainment is not simply to entertain, but also to educate and inform viewers about important issues in society. Media entertainment companies who respond to feedback from their customers are only encouraging bigotry and laying the foundations for fascism. So I encourage Netflix to continue to push accredited narratives in the face of this opposition, and in doing so continue to open hearts and minds to progressivism across the world.

It’s wonderful that a visionary company like Netflix would put social justice ahead of the profit motive. I cannot wait to watch these three powerful shows, the only question is the order.

I recommend you do NOT watch another show called Peaky Blinders. Although the ratings are as high as they can be, I have only counted one character of color in the show. It also gives a negative perception of Romany travelers. Again, do not watch Series 1, 2, 3 as it has been my mistake to do.

That’s disgusting not to have a true representation of real life diversity. I’ll give it a wide berth – thanks for the heads up.

The series promotes the lie that post First World War Birmingham, England, was not the multicultural paradise we can see with our own eyes it is today.

In series 2, it gets worse with the proper introduction of Alfie Solomons (played by Tom Hardy) as a violent Jewish gangster “who uses violent outbursts and confusing language to intimidate and dominate everyone around him.” Already we are so far removed from reality that you really have to have a fertile imagination to believe in any of the characters.

richandrenee

A violent Jew, preposterous – Jews are scholars, doctors, lawyers, etc.

trav777

Yeah…next thing what are they gonna say, that “Murder Inc” with Meyer Lansky et. al. was jewish? That the “Russian mob” is code for a jewish mob? GTFO here, that is not an accredited narrative. “Cohen Crime Family”? Simply not part of Hollywood’s historical depictions. Those people were Italians and Russians.

I don’t understand the rabbis and ISIS trafficking organs.

Why live an unhealthy life, that kills your kidneys, liver or heart, and then get an organ transplant? You can’t enjoy life with immune suppressants.

But then people don’t know simple things, like, taking Tylenol and alcohol will kill the liver.

trav777

There were no fucking vaccines for influenza in 1918, you effing ignoramus.

Doctors recommend use of low dose aspirin ROUTINELY for blood thinning purposes. WTF kind of shit are you idiots smoking?

Tylenol and alcohol kill the liver? The liver regenerates! And you have to take like 4g of Tylenol for hepatoxicity to be a significant risk issue.

Pointless to argue with Anon as facts, evidence, and logic can not penetrate his titanium-armored skull. I am starting to admire him for being a white version of Maxine Waters

Black Lives Matter

He needs to SHUT UP. This is an ACCREDITED NEWS FORUM. Whites had their say. They gave us TRUMP!1!!!1!!! They lost their right to speak!!!11!!!

trav777

you um do know that they conclusively know what the Spanish flu was, right? It’s not in any way what you claim.

you anti-vax moonbats are the worst

Then means after – than means rather than. You’re the stupid one Anon.

What a disgusting comment. The reason that the black neighborhoods are so dangerous is because of two things: the NRA and the KKK infested white supremacist police departments.

You need to go to your local university and sign up for some diversity and white privilege classes immediately or I am afraid you’ll have to be arrested for hate speech.

trav777

Yes, but also…perplexing…the KKK forces ALL blacks to be uncle toms. let me explain-

black WOMEN are fingering black men for rapes. “We all know” that poverty causes crime, including rape because being poor makes you more likely somehow to rape women. Black women are saying black men raped them. And there is physical evidence in most of these cases to support the claim, thus probable cause. Vaginal damage, blood, bruises, etc. And even worse, the DNA they find in the cooch seems to exclude all other people except black perpetrators. And then the system is locking up our “best and brightest,” all these future astrophysicists, surgeons, and engineers…

According to DoJ, there are literally (not figuratively) about zero rapes of black women by white men annually and have been for decades. The NCVS backs this up.

So what we have is EVERY black woman being an uncle tom and fingering black men, secreting their semen away in their fridges to deposit in their vaginas so that they can be prosecuted for rapes that were CLEARLY done by white men!!!!!

That’s the ONLY explanation other than black men really are significantly more prone to rape, which as we know is DATA-DRIVEN RACISM and must be rejected in favor of some other explanation, even if you have to use “logic” so tortured that it may violate the Geneva Convention.

In addition, serious assaults, homicide, etc., also caused by poverty as “we all know”; black witnesses are fingering black men for those too! Uncle Toms EVERYWHERE. And these same black people are marching for BLM and whatnot. I don’t know how the KKK succeeds in doing this, not only assaulting and murdering and raping blacks but also getting blacks to finger OTHER blacks for the crimes. The KKK also appears to be able to edit CCTV footage to make it appear like black people are on tape committing crimes galore, probably with the assistance of Russian hackers. Even on Worldstarhiphop!

I would like to thank Netflix for embarking on this journey of instilling Social Justice in all the vile white racists out there. It’s a perilous journey which often results in very negative feedback and loss of profits but losing our rich diversity is a fate much worse.

As progressives, we have to double down on multiculturalism in the age of tRump or we’re going to have anudda shoah.

I have a lampshade in my house that was torn by the movers last time and I shudder to think that 6 quadrillion new shades may come available in Wahl-Mart or something. I wonder if they will come in various colors?

That is a good question. I’m not sure but I know that if Donald tRump has his way there will be a huge lampshade sale and prices will be lower than ever. Even lower than 1946 prices.

I heard rumors that Bath and Body Works is putting in more soap production lines around the country. I’m not sure what that means but it can’t be good. We MUST fight this evil “president” so get out on the street rioting or write a generous check to your local Open Society Foundation accredited Antifa chapter now!

Is that the soap that is used for WHO’s hand-washing campaign across the world?
Must be WHO that deloused the 6 zillion into soap, they sure think ahead.

Black Lives Matter

Wal-Mart only makes one color of lampshade: WHITE.

Oh, and racism doesn’t exist, right???

trav777

Racism is undefinable. But we progressives know it when we see a white person with their mouth moving.

Black Lives Matter

This is so true. When a White speaks, xe needs to ask, “Is my voice talking over or overpowering the voice of a disenfranchised Person of Color.” The answer is almost always YES. Whites need to SHUT UP. They had their time. It’s OUR TIME NOW.

What a vile comment. People like you need to be imprisoned at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum for life. I hope the blood money that Putin is giving you to spew this vile hate is worth it. smdh

we need to put them in a concentration camp, all the deplorables, to prevent another Holocaust

blacks are 12% of the population, bub

then you’d better subtract out Maxine Watters…she’s intellectually-challenged so much so that her IQ is probably negative.

All coal plants in EU will shut down by 2030 – http://www.resilience.org/stories/2017-02-16/eu-coal-plants-should-all-close-by-2030/

A few years after that, people (in EU) will stop inhaling oxygen and exhaling CO2.
That will restrict temperature increase from global warming to less than 2 degrees.

Black Lives Matter

Dear White People,

Yes, POLICE BRUTALITY is a “thing.”

Yes, DISCRIMINATION is a “thing.”

Yes, WHITE PRIVILEGE is a “thing.”

Yes, we are REMOVING DONALD TRUMP.

I obviously strongly prefer normal democratic and constitutional politics. But if it comes to it, I, like many other oppressed People of Color, prefer the deep state to the Trump state.

Great comment but we need to forget about the constitution. It was written by FUCKING WHITE MALES after all! It doesn’t specifically mention LGBTQIA+ rights or the clear right for People of Color to immigrate here. I am glad that good progressive judges are saying that all of that is a right, but still, the constitution is just a hateful document.

I hope that President Elizabeth Warren crumples it up and flushes it down the toilet.

Black Lives Matter

According to the “Constitution,” I’m still 3/5ths of a human being. No thanks, I support the U.N. Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Manifesto of the Communist Party, which grants equality for ALL PEOPLE OF COLOR.
