No one should be surprised that Marvel are planning to cast a diminutive, dark-haired, dark-eyed, Jewish, Israeli citizen as the new Thor. Oh, and she’s a she.
I’ve been increasingly puzzled by Styxhexenhammer’s assertion that the only reason companies do such stupid things is for money; in his view, everything comes down to money, not ideology. He, for example, asserts that the mainstream media attack Youtubers because they see them as competition.
There probably is a financial component, but in that case the predominantly left-wing media would also, presumably, attack left-wing Youtubers – after all, how many people would go from watching CNN and reading the New York Times to watching an ancap like Stefan Molyneux or an ethnotribalist like Varg Vikernes? Is No White Guilt really competition for the Huffington Post? And why would Disney poz their heroes when it’s clear no one (except SJWs) likes it? Where is the financial sense in casting a small 38-year-old Jewish woman as Thor?
Vox Day is, I think, correct that all of this is part of a concerted, (at least) decades-long attack on Western values of Christianity and masculinity. The enemy wish to humiliate the occupied peoples, much as the Russians forced e.g. the Poles and Hungarians to learn Russian. Every conquering power denigrates the heroes and mythologies of the conquered; the goal is to break the will of the slave class through constant humiliation, through constantly attacking their cultural identity and capacity for resistance. That is part of the Left’s terror & hatred of Trump – he is a partial avatar of everything they’ve been trying to destroy: an unabashed white, straight alpha male.
But regardless of the ideological intent, companies have to make some money; I was thus puzzled at the sheer awfulness of The Last Jedi. You can’t even call it subversive, it’s just badly made, so crassly progressive it wouldn’t subvert but rather repel; it most likely served to Red Pill a few cinema-goers. Did Disney really think there is a market for this? Putting aside that if you work at Disney & Hollywood you probably never meet any normal people, one would think a budget of 200-317 million dollars would have included a bit of initial market research, to determine how many people will pay to have progressive values rammed down their throats. It made money but there seems a delayed effect with such franchises: people go to see it, in spite of a few bad reviews, but then they decide to skip the next one.
When I consider the confidence with which Hollywood executives announce their plans to have e.g. 007 now be a black woman, I wonder if the world works very differently to how I imagined it. It has, at least, prompted some good memes:
I wonder if, in the past, a film could make money regardless of audience, regardless of how few tickets it sold. Anonymous Conservative has speculated, based on some mysterious tweets of James Comey’s (standing in a forest with a text “so many questions”) if Cabal usually communicated indirectly with its puppets; so instead of a centralized hierarchy with clear lines of communication & command, higher puppets like Comey would be told “here’s the deal, do what we want and you will prosper” and then his “instructions” would come in a very indirect, oblique form, not vulnerable to codebreaking but rather, e.g. the New York Times and Washington Post both run articles about how wonderful some new perversity is, and the puppet realises “Cabal want me to push this perversity”; the puppet does accordingly, and is rewarded.
If so, it would explain the school of fish nature of Cabal puppets; there is often some slight variance, swiftly corrected, e.g. David Lynch said something half-nice about Trump and was immediately rebuked and bowed his head to the progressive agenda. The Cabal puppets don’t get information meetings and performance evaluations: they are mostly left to their own devices but with many information streams by which to judge the will of their masters, and if they deviate they end up on one of those “Why Hollywood won’t cast____again” lists.
When I consider the utter confidence with which the studios announce Thor will now be a small Jewish woman, 007 a negress, I wonder if they feel sure they will be rewarded, whether or not people buy any tickets. As with certain worthless books which become bestsellers, the authors millionaires, but you never meet anyone who’s actually read it, never read a normal, grassroots review on the internet, the reason some businesses thrive and others fail may have little to do with profit & loss. It will be interesting, as Q et al. seem to be systematically cutting the strings of Cabal finance, to see how black Bond and Jewish lady Thor fare in the box office; if the executives will be shocked to find that, for once, they followed their (apparent) instructions but did not prosper.
