Well, it looks like the SJW Cultural Langoliers have destroyed another franchise.
This review of the newest Bond movie (which seems to be mostly based on the trailer with reasoned speculation) indicates that Bond is in retirement, but gets called back for One More Thing that only He can solve. Yet runs smack into the fact that his 007 designation is now assigned to another agent (a Black Woman, of course… now if only she’s a Lesbian they can have a 3-fer on SJW points…) and folks back at the Agency don’t remember him. OK…
Well, that’s OK. I have the original Bond on video. No need to waste my money to be “re-educated” at my own expense. Nice to have a clue what the plot is prior to wasting $10 to find out.
So sad. They could have just as easily had him return with his 007 (like pro ball players of merit, his number retired with him) and paired him up with a “Woman’s Woman” agent (perhaps numbered 0014 ;-) and had explosive sexual tension scenes between them.
Or just find another Smart young Scotsman who knows his way around a bar fight and make a traditional James Bond motif film.
When will the Hollywood / Media folks realize that we Deplorables do NOT go to movies to have our consciousness raised, be propagandized, have our attitudes adjusted, be manipulated, or otherwise treated like raw material to be formed and moulded. We go to forget about the world for a while and be entertained. Otherwise, we just won’t go. A 6 pack of beer, box of worms, and fishing hole costs about the same, lasts all day, does NOT offend me nor call me names (out loud or implicitly). In a pinch, you can skip the box of worms and fishing hole and need to clean fish and just spend an hour or two in the backyard at the BBQ…
See, that’s the thing about a “Finished Person” who is self directed and self aware. They see this kind of manipulative crap for what it is. Manipulative crap. Now 99% of the time for the last couple of decades it’s just been “Water off a Duck’s Back” and ignored. BUT things are different now.
There’s been a shift from the soft peddle to “shove down the throat” with Antifa clocking folks with bike locks in bags and with Twitter Mobs shouting down any traditional voices. That’s caused resentment. Resentment that NEVER goes away. So the time for “water off the back” is over. Gone. Now it’s time for “be the mirror” and for “DEFEND.” In that context the Finished Person who is self directed rejects the SJW Crap and DEFENDs against the attacks with gusto. They no longer just suck it up and wait for the wasted $10 to end.
See, that’s the thing about sensitization. Once sensitized to the assault, it can no longer be unseen or ignored.
Thus Starbucks posting lower revenue year over year while coffee houses around them show increases.
Thus the NFL having a drop off in acceptance.
Thus The Main Stream Media having layoffs by the thousands year after year after year.
Thus “Get Woke, Go Broke” in all its many manifestations.
Thus my not bothering to watch this particular Bond-ish film in theaters, nor bothering to buy it on DVD, nor renting it on Hulu / Netflix / whatever. I already know there’s no reason to watch it. You see, it isn’t Bond and it isn’t 007, it’s an SJW parody of that; and I don’t do SJW Crap Parodies.
Here’s another review with a few more details on the Wokeness / Death of the franchise:
