Cook: Chattanooga’s First Annual Samuel L. Jackson Film Festival

Why the (expletive) not?

Austin has one. So does Telluride. And Savannah, Ga.

Even Rome, Ga., has a film festival. An “international” film festival, that is.

Why not Chattanooga?

“It is hard to find a midsized city or larger that does not have a film festival,” said Dave Porfiri, co-founder and president of the Chattanooga Film Society. “We believe Chattanooga is a place that will attract people from all over the country just to celebrate film.”

Picture it.

On Friday night, a sold-out Tivoli Theatre. Movie lovers from near and far mingle with film producers, directors and actors staying in downtown hotels and eating and drinking in downtown restaurants.

Before the curtain rises, Porfiri and the next Chattanooga mayor invite a special guest on stage and present him with a Lifetime Achievement Award. He’s a Chattanooga native whose entire body of filmwork has grossed more than any other actors’ (and his new film will premiere that night at the Tivoli).

Samuel L. Jackson.

“Thank you so (expletive) much,” Jackson might say. “It’s about (expletive) time you got your (expletive) together as a city. It’s real (expletive) good to be back here after so (expletive) long.”

For the next three days, films are screened at the Tennessee Aquarium and IMAX, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga campus, the Tivoli and Majestic Theater. Don’t imagine black-and-white movies with waif-like actresses, wearing berets and smoking skinny cigarettes while they read Prussian poetry and speak in mime.

Instead, think of those chest-swelling emotions and mind-expanding coffeehouse conversations that happen when we see powerful movies. Then triple it for a whole weekend’s worth.

“Our goal is to get people downtown, like Riverbend, and spend a weekend celebrating film,” said Porfiri.

Last week, we learned that “Iron Man 3” will feature Chattanooga in its plot, which is flattering and strange at the same time. How in the (expletive) will filmmakers include Chattanooga in the “Iron Man” plot? Will it be the Choo-Choo? The Walnut Street Bridge? The Hamilton County Commission in prayer?

Unfortunately, the Chattanooga scenes are being filmed in North Carolina, as small-town Kenansville, N.C., has become Little Chattanooga.

Porfiri says it’s politics. To attract Hollywood movie producers, states offer incentives, he said. And while other Southern states are “aggressively” offering incentives to lure producers here, Tennessee ... ain’t.

“Louisiana and Georgia especially are leaving Tennessee behind,” he said, adding that a few years ago, North Carolina “reinvigorated” its policy toward movie-making incentives.

Formed after a community envisioning process, the Chattanooga Film Society has six lofty and contagiously cool goals: working with high schools to teach media arts, offering regular film screenings (like last night’s Jonathan Demme film on post-Katrina New Orleans screened at the downtown YMCA) and promoting film culture here in dozens of ways. (Check out chattanoogafilmsociety.org)

But their best goal: Create an international film festival.

“Everybody loves movies,” Porfiri said. “People got a taste of this with last year’s ‘Water for Elephants’ premiere. What if we could do that every year?”

To pull this off, the festival must have grass-roots support and major sponsorship. But the biggest challenge?

“Apathy and Netflix,” said Porfiri.

Blockbuster movies are fun, but do not represent the larger spectrum of film-making as an art form. Moviegoers must get past the idea that going to the movies means going to the couch to stream Netflix or paying $20 for the new 3D “Transformers.” Experiencing a film is much more than that.

“We’ve got to get past the film nerds and into doctors, lawyers, midlevel executives and small business people. We’ve got to reach those people and get the message to them about the wonderful things film can do to build community,” Porfiri said.

He’s so (expletive) right. Film strengthens community, enlarges our understanding of the world, and like all good art, troubles and heals our spirit.

“Some people in this town have never even heard of a film festival before,” he said.

I can only imagine what Samuel Jackson would say to that.

I love Chattanooga, I'm loyal to Chattanooga. But the day local support for an international film festival happens in my hometown is the day Connooga becomes as big as San Diego Comicon, Anime Blast becomes as big as AnimeExpo, "Roadhouse" and "Thick as Theives" gets nominated for the AFI Top 100 movies of all time, and the Mocs beat Florida for the National Championship. Good try David...Good Try.

Why would you glamorize the use of vulgar language by Samuel Jackson? I don't think its amusing or clever and I don't think its appropriate.

A recent disgusting movie, Project X, which targets our children, glamorizes sex, drugs, alcohol and other destructive behavior. How is this ok?

Jews go ballistic over movies about the Passion of the Christ and they express outrage at Christian evangelism but take license to corrupt our children with movies and tv programming.

Who are the people who control Hollywood and what are they trying to do to us as a society and culture?

My prayer to God is that America could develop another film industry in place of Hollywood. One that reflects traditional family values that history shows have worked for Nordic and Christian people and helped us create the greatest nation in the history of the world and modern Western Civilization.

What good will developing a film industry in Tennessee do if it does nothing different from Hollywood which is destroying our families and our country by targeting our children with every thing vile and low?

When they talk about cultural wars, whose culture do you think is under attack? When you tear down and destroy something you should think carefully about what will replace it.

The way that blacks are portrayed in movies is not the reality in America today. Blacks are not the saviors of the world as Samuel Jackson and Densel Washington and Morgan Freemon would have us think.

Blacks commit the most crimes, and violent crimes, relative to their percentage in the population. Blacks have made our schools places where our children can't learn, places where there are metal detectors, drugs, violence and dumbing down of curriculum. There is revisionist history where blacks are credited with accomplishments they never made and the founding Fathers are replaced with lessons about Martin Luther King.

Make no mistake, Hollywood paves the way for such outrages with its propaganda and forced Marxist political correctness.

"We must realize that our party's most powerful weapon is racial tension. By propounding into the consciousness of the dark races that for centuries they have been oppressed by the whites, we can mold them to the program of the Communist Party. In America we will aim for subtle victory. While inflaming the Negro minority against the whites, we will endeavor to instill in the whites a guilt complex for their exploitation of the Negroes. We will aid the Negroes to rise in prominence in every walk of life, in the professions and in the world of sports and entertainment. With this prestige, the Negro will be able to intermarry with the whites and begin a process which will deliver America to our cause." by Israel Cohen, A Racial Program for the Twentieth Century, 1912. (Also in Congressional Record, Vol 103, p.8559, June 7, 1957)

Samuel L. Jackson is cool but he doesn't talk like that in real life. That's just the type of character he play's in most of his movies. Why the hell would he cuss like that when accepting an award? With that being said, a film festival of any sort would be interesting in Chattanooga.

Meant to be a joke. Apparently, it didn't work. Of course Mr. Jackson does not curse in real life the way he does in films. Most importantly, don't hold the shortcomings of this column against the hard work of the Chattanooga Film Society, which is working to create a magnificent film festival. Not full of expletive-loaded films, but in fact quite moving ones. Go to their website to sign on to help. (And Jonathan Cook, brother from another mother, how could you make fun of "Roadhouse"?)

@Possiblian - It was Israel Cohen and his fellow jews who made statements about how blacks could be used to tear down our country. Perhaps you should read my comments again.

If you care to present facts refuting anything I said I'd be happy to read them.

Telling White people that we must never speak the facts if they reflect negatively upon non Whites or else we're racist is a false choice.

I have more right to pursue the interests of the founding stock of this nation than foreigners have to come here and seek their own interests at my people's expense.

This is our homeland and they have theirs. I don't do PC since I fail to see the reasoning behind having to give up my free speech to benefit people who divide my country and cost us culturally, economically, and with foreign illegal wars, and who persecute our religion.

White People who have done sh(expletive)ty things: Donald Rumsfeld Adolf Hitler Joseph Stalin Pope Leo X Christopher Columbus

It doesn't matter the race- this country will have bad things happen to it despite colored or white people.

I found this statement particularly ironic: "This is our homeland and they have theirs. I don't do PC since I fail to see the reasoning behind having to give up my free speech to benefit people who divide my country and cost us culturally, economically, and with foreign illegal wars, and who persecute our religion."

Okay, one: Free speech is a thing, but we'll still call you out for being an (expletive). Don't abuse it. Two: Foreign illegal wars? DID YOU SEE MY REFERENCE TO RUMSFELD? Three: Who the h*** is persecuting "our" religion? What is "our" religion? My prayer to God is that we don't share a religion with you. But, I don't adhere to Nazism, so I think I'm okay.

The irony in the comments, of course, is that Samuel L. Jackson distanced himself from Chattanooga in part because of the racism he encountered here in his youth. I'm not often disappointed in my town, but I am when an article that seeks to inform locals about a neat cultural event is met with disgustingly racist remarks about Jews and African Americans while moralizing about a few swear words that may or may not be a part of the films featured. Grow up, Chattanooga. Maybe if we had more cultural events like this there would be fewer hateful, ignorant, and backwards people embarrassing our city.

JonathanMCook, The term "International Film Festival" is like "International Speedway" nothing more than an affectation.

But good show annissbell, blaming Blacks for ruining schools. You've got it wrong. The schools are being ruined at the administrative and legislative levels, not in the classrooms, but the ones who are supposed to make the schools better.

Your racism continues to show where the real problem lies.

Annisisbell- You are what is wrong with this country. One of the principals that it was founded on was freedom of religion. I feel like I have to say this every day... THIS IS NOT A THEOCRACY! This is not a country where one religion is forced on the masses thankfully but people like you are pushing harder and harder for it to be. You want to cry about your rights being encroached upon when other people are given freedoms, you want to moan about certain races bringing down the school system and bringing crime and hurting "our culture", you are completely unenlightened and it's laughable that you call yourself a Christian. Do you think this is Christ like? I hope for your sake that you are the teenager that you sound like because it is extremely discouraging to see adults present themselves this way. People like you are a disgrace to this beautiful city and to this country.

Well said, emieo. With all his successes, like many other successful African-American Chattanoogans who left the city because of racism, Samuel Jackson still carries the scars of those experiences to this day. Chattanooga really does need to GROW UP

Samuel Jackson distanced himself from Chattanooga because its not where movies get made. Read the quote above in my first post for why he got made into a star.

Samuel Jackson has said in Ebony magazine interview that he will vote for Obama BECAUSE OBAMA IS BLACK. Oprah supports Obama for the same reason as does Chris Rock and every other black in America.

So please explain to me, how is it I'm a racist but they're not?

Illegals come up here and belong to La Raza. If I oppose them being here I get called a racist. Since you all seem to know everything why don't you explain to me why ever race on Earth can pursue its own interests but when White people such as myself do it we're racist. Please explain.

And for the person who suggested that Rumsfeld is evil perhaps you should check out Project for the New American Century and get to know Bill Kristol and his gang of jew neocons. Kristol has boasted that because of his actions, Ronald Reagan couldn't get elected today and that the republican party is purged of anyone who will not put Israel's interests first. Hence the upcoming war against Iran.

If this is not our White homeland then please tell me where White people's homeland is? Europe is being made diverse just like North America and South Africa and the Pope fears its going Islamic. That should be good news for all you supporters of diversity.

Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, israel for jews and White people's countries for everyone. Why is that? Why do jews claim that diversity is our strength but they have a right to a state of their own, paid for with our blood and money. Why is that? Why do jews take license to live where ever they please while claiming a right to their own state?

What is the difference between Nazis and Zionists? Why don't Germans have a right to their own country? Why would they have wanted jews living in Germany after world jewry got Germany defeated in the first world war by dragging the United States into war so the Brits would give them Palestine? What right did jews have to even be there?

World wars one and two - 100 million Anglo Saxon, Aryan, Nordic and Christian people killed. Our best and brightest and jews dragged us into both. Now they using our children as cannon fodder in the middle east and bankrupting us with their Federal Reserve Bank. They are using other races to destroy us and our civilization. So explain, using jews as exhibit number one, why diversity is good for us.

There is a difference between making decisions based upon feelings and emotions which cultural engineers and propagandists may play upon, and making sound decisions based upon logic and reason.

There is a difference between being a good person and showing good will and good manners toward other people and being a good citizen making decisions that are best for your country, using facts.

So in fairness lets do this, there are 53 black countries on Earth, name one that demonstrates blacks' abilities in forming good governments, creating strong economies and one that reveals the positive aspects of black cultures.

This is a response to Annisisbell's rant.

I don't think I have seen something as laughably racist in my life. You wear your delusion like a badge of courage. Your state of mind reminds me of an old retired man, refusing to learn anything new or accepting any kind of change. Old people don't like change, they hold on to the familiar. But young people who don't like progress and are afraid of differences- you end up being left behind by the rest of the world.

If you don't believe me take a look at the entire Muslim world. They don't like dirty words either, and they don't like change, science, medicine, math or anything that shows progress. They don't like people who are not like them and have taken great strides to make sure their governments are Theist. It shows in backwardness of their societies.

When was the last time you heard of a Muslim winning a Nobel prize?

This is 2012 and you live in a global economy that makes the world very small. Your words reach people around the world, and you are quickly summed up by your words and this reflects on you and your community.

I agree with the Author, Chattanooga is not ready for a Film Festival. Judging from Annisisbell's post, Chattanooga is also not ready for the wide reach of the Internet which can expose the embarrassing underbelly of it's bottom feeders who own a computer...

annisisbell said... Samuel Jackson distanced himself from Chattanooga because its not where movies get made. Read the quote above in my first post for why he got made into a star.

Not according to an interview with PARADE years ago. Samuel L. Jackson spoke openly and painfully about his experience encountering racism on an almost daily basis growing up in Chattanooga. I've always advised young male Chattanoogans, especially young black males, to leave the city if they want to get ahead. They did and they DID!!

Samuel Jackson has said in Ebony magazine interview that he will vote for Obama BECAUSE OBAMA IS BLACK. Oprah supports Obama for the same reason as does Chris Rock and every other black in America.

You can only name three people? Wow!! That's a helluva lot of black folks {sarcasm}. Jackson, Winfrey, Rock are entitled to their opinions. If they voted for Obama because he's black that's they're entitled to do so. However, their reasons do not define every black American. Most blacks I've spoken with admitted they much preferred Hillary as president. They voted for Obama because, like many blacks in America, he's a Democrat. Most blacks overwhelmingly identify with the Democrat Party. duh! However, just in case-- a Jewish, Latino, Catholic, French, Italian, German, Asian American would likely cast their vote for a fellow Jewish, Latino, Catholic, French, Italian, German, Asian American running for such a high office for the first time. It doesn't make them racist,just excited. Especially if they've historically been an oppressed and persecuted people. Look at all the years black Americans voted for a white president. It's the party, not the race, duh! duh!.

So please explain to me, how is it I'm a racist but they're not?

Here's a clue: *Because you are, maybe? A racist in denial, looking for any excuse to be racist?

I have not attacked any of you or called you names. I have put forward my ideas only. Where is it written that my free speech is conditioned upon minority approval?

What would be the point of having free speech if you can say only what others agree with? If diversity were a good thing then Whites would still be free to hold whatever opinion we choose wouldn't we?

When the free speech of White people is taken away it demonstrates two things. First that we never consented to our nation being made diverse and now we're not allowed to oppose it. Secondly, the only way diversity works is for White people to go along with whatever non Whites' interests are at the expense of our own. The minute we start to exert our own interests our country falls apart. Isn't that what happens?

You have no right to silence me, I'm entitled to my opinions the same as you are. Non Whites have no right to come here, its the opinions of the founding stock that should count for everything, not the opinions of non Whites.

I have tried to make you see that I'm no more racist than other races. You have been conditioned to think the way you do because jews own and control all of our media and Hollywood, the publishing industry and the textbook industry. They tell you that if White people refuse to give our nation away to other races then we're racist.

But here is what jews do in israel.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=...!

Now how many of you think jews are racists?

Watch this, the guy who wrote the 1965 Immigration Act that made this nation diverse.

http://www.vdare.com/articles/norbert-schlei-guilty-of-malice-aforethought-in-americas-immigration-disaster

It seems that in your minds only White people can be racist which is patently false. You puff yourselves up as though you are tolerant and I'm evil but where is your tolerance for my ideas?

You have not refuted ONE thing that I've said, all you do is call me names. If you cannot defend your opinions perhaps its time to get rid of them.

Political correctness is cultural Marxism. In America we are forced to live in a soft communism which gets worse everyday. You cannot level people economically as in communism and socialism and neither can you level people racially.

People shouldn't get into Harvard based upon the color of their skin. We were told that everyone was to be judged on the content of their character but its skin color that gets White qualified men displaced in the job market for somebody who is black, or hispanic, or Asian, or Muslim or female. How is that fair?

Are the Japanese racists? They are exploring robotics as a way to deal with their aging population rather than bringing in foreign workers. Do you call them racists? Should Japan be forced to be diverse?

The founding stock of this nation has the right to live in peace and safety in our own country. We shouldn't be forced to put up with the constant, continual demands and attacks of non Whites.

It doesn't make sense for non Whites to continually accuse us of racism at the same time we can't get rid of them.

That's like jews complaining about Nazi Germany. The fact is they didn't have to live in Germany and the Germans had every right to be upset at the way the jew got them defeated in WW1 just so they could get Palestine. Why didn't they go away and leave the Germans alone?

Just so, there are 53 black nations on this Earth and blacks are not in chains and are free to leave. I think we know why they don't leave tho don't we?

By the same token, I don't owe them anything and I don't have to be pc just so they can be comfortable here living off of us.

Furthermore, Germany was just the last in a long long long line of places in Europe the jew was driven out of. Even General Grant tried to drive them out. The PC that is forced upon us is psychological warfare and doesn't make sense.

If a pedophile moves into your neighborhood, given his history, you don't have to prove you are not anti pedophile, its up to the pedophile to prove he will not harm you.

So given jews' history of being driven out of every place they lived because they are harmful to the host people, common sense tells you its the jew who should have to prove to us that they are not hostile to us. We shouldn't have to prove we're not anti semitic or anything else. If they don't like what we do they can move on.

jews are the richest most powerful race on Earth and they wage psychological warfare on White people so that our race is willing to commit suicide against all reason.

Why give Samuel Jackson a film festival after he went off and said racist things about all the people of Chattanooga? Isn't lumping everyone together "racist"?

If White people are so bad why don't blacks have their own movie industry? Why don't we tax each "culture" in America so that each "culture" pays for its own entitlement programs and see if that suits Mr Jackson better. I wonder how much welfare his family got while he was growing up since there were no men in his house.

If he has a right to fight for his race then I have a right to fight for mine and defend White people from Jackson's racist vicious attacks.

Prisons are places where civility breaks down. If you do not join and stick with your own group you will die. Why is that?

We've given blacks PC, affirmative action, headstart, welfare, free housing, desegregation, Black Congressional Caucus, miscegenation (exactly what White people feared) etc etc etc. Has it been a guarantee that they would be kind to us in return? No, they simply demand more and more.

When Whites are forced to make our nations diverse, name all the races that have to make sacrifices and explain what they must give up. Which is the only race that stands to lose without gaining anything?

When Haiti was hit by Earthquake which nations of the world gave aid? Rich Arab nations? israel? Africa? Asia?

When the White man displaced the savage, pea-brained Indians, we created the greatest nation in the history of the world and modern civilization.

When you get rid of something you should think about what will replace it.

Imagine a pyramid, with the people at the top representing the intellectuals, people such as the founding fathers who create and sustain nations.

As the dumb people at the bottom multiply while the intellectuals do not, society becomes dumber, eventually a critical point is reached where the people are too dumb to sustain their civilization and it dies. Mass immigration accelerates that for Western civilization. In that way the globalists will destroy us and get their One World Order. Just as the quote claims in my first post.

Hospitals around the nation are closing as a result of being overwhelmed with non Whites who can't pay. In this way they will destroy Western institutions and bankrupt us. They've already bankrupted California which used to be one of the biggest economies in the world.

These other races are being used to destroy us. Doesn't Chattanooga have other celebrities? Doesn't Tennessee have other celebrities so that we can celebrate our own with a movie festival?

Samuel Jackson has disqualified himself based upon his racist, insulting remarks about Chattanoogans. Clearly Jackson is a Black Supremacist and we don't want the world to think we support, defend or promote such racism.

How does Jackson prove that he is not a racist and a black supremacist? As everyone knows one cannot prove a negative. But White people are put into the position of having to prove we're not racist all the time. Such are the delights of muli culturalism for White people in our own countries.

annie, you appear very childish and immature in your rants. How many black people formed lynch mobs and posse to lynch white people just for being white? When did blacks ever creat laws and a judicial system that purposely discriminated against whites? Prevented them from living in certain neighborhoods, provided then from receiving an equal education? It doesn't make Samuel Jackson a racist just because he spoke out about the racism he encountered. No more than it makes a victim of an assault guilty of assault because he spoke out about being assaulted. I'm not black, but I can understand the perhaps permanent racial pain racism has caused primarily black Americans.

By the way, annie, you can no more compare blacks in Africa fighting against one another no more you can compare whites in Ireland fighting against fellow whites. Or Apache Indian scout hunting down fellow Apache Indians to herd them back to reservations. There's tribal difference, social, class diffferences, religious differences. Even within same tribes there are difference. You really need to study up more on history and the human experience. Otherwise, you present yourself as a very ignorant person. No one's calling you names. No more so than you've referred to others in derogatory terms. You have freedom of speech. Just as everyone has the freedom and right to respond. Can't stand the heat? Get out of the kitchen.

Thank you shen. Diversity doesn't work does it? White people are evidence that it doesn't work. Thank you for pointing out the thinking of White people and that we NEVER wanted blacks to be treated like citizens and we NEVER consented to our nation being made diverse. It was done to us by the jew and we never consented to it and we never even knew it was being done to us.

Read the quote above from my first post to see that jews were as good as their word.

JFK had to reassure Americans that the Pope wouldn't control our government if he got elected. It was an Anglo Saxon Protestant nation. Our White nation.

Free people should not be forced to do anything. We should be free to associate with whomever we choose. There will never come a time when non Whites are satisfied. That is part of the diabolical nature of what is being done to White people. Its like the never ending war on drugs.

blacks were certainly free to migrate to Liberia. It certainly cannot be denied that blacks commit the largest percentage of crimes today and that black on White crime is prevalent and growing and South Africa serves as the indicator of what will be done to Whites in the future.

Even today we are denied the right to segregate while all the rights go to non Whites. Just wait til we are a minority and see how much PC we get from people who are not like us and not at all tolerant.

Zimmerman is being used to get laws that make it illegal for White people to even defend ourselves from black flash mobs. Whites started flash mobs that were used to sing, entertain and amuse people. Blacks seized the idea in order to be violent, predatory and even to shoplift from convenience stores and most recently Walmart. We were right to segregate them.

Its another thing altogether to pretend that this was ever their country. Even Abe Lincoln always intended that blacks be repatriated to Africa. Its just stunning that everyone continues to act like this nation always belonged to every race. Up until the 60s when the jews got our immigration laws changed, this was an Anglo Saxon Protestant nation. Its absurd to suggest that somehow Whites were not supposed to control every thing in our own country.

Today we are made to seem illegitimate while other races are made to seem to belong, otherwise I would not be put into the position of justifying our history and behavior. That shows the psychological warfare that has been waged against us.

We have done everything possible to help blacks function in our society and they simply cannot do it. The school system in Michigan is being sued by the ACLjew to force Michigan to spend more money to help blacks READ.

Shen you act as though its up to blacks alone to decide this issue. Excuse me but my race is also involved in what is being done to America and I think we have a say.

We have tried to make diversity work but it hasn't so it is time to do what is in our best interests and the best interests of America. If it were only blacks or only a few other non Whites it would be a different matter. But there are hordes of non Whites who breed like flies and will soon displace us and destroy our civilization and at this point its a matter of who commits ethnic cleansing against whom.

If blacks are equal could you please tell me when it will be their turn to provide opportunity and jobs for us? Arabs sit on vast seas of oil but Western nations sit on vast seas of opportunity. It belongs to us because we create it. Why should others be allowed to come here and take it? Mexico is older than Canada and the United States, what was it doing for the past 200 years.

Jesse the KKK was created after the Civil War when the South was going through Reconstruction and freed blacks had more rights than we did. All our men had been killed and women and children left at the mercy of roving blacks just as blacks are out all hours of the night prowling the streets like Travonne Martin.

The KKK was intended as a defense to protect White women. Superstitious blacks were afraid of the White sheets and stayed home at night. But the South had a right to be angry at what was being done to us. You should put that history in its proper context. But as usual Whites are treated as though we have no interests and no rights.

Personally I couldn't care less about blacks or any other race.

Just from reading your sick, rambling rants, annie, one can easily conclude yous is of an extremely sick and warped mind. Suggestion: GET HELP! Heal your soul!! If you can find it.

Actually, annie, the KKK originally started out as a prank. Stop trying to re-create a history more to your liking.

Another thought, annie old girl, diversity IS working in America and around the world. Apparently, it's not working for you! So why don't you move to some deserted island and start your own colony where you'll be more happy. We really feel said seeing you so bitter and anger all the time. Just think how all that bitterness, anger and hatred affect one's physical health? So sad. You're teetering on chancing a majory heart attack or stroke. Get help!

Samuel L. Jackson actually is a racist. And so is annisisbell. They may both be products of their environment. Chattanooga is really a pretty racist little town. Sorry to burst y'alls bubbles. But admitting a problem is the first step, right?

Samuel Jackson actually is normal and so am I. In grade school kids might cry and say boo hoo Suzie doesn't like me. But never in the world of adults, ever, do people conduct business based upon a system of who likes or doesn't like whom.

If someone shoots his neighbor and gets put in jail, stands trial and ends up on death row, no where in the entire episode does anyone talk about who likes or doesn't like whom. Its infantile. In any society you have to function whether you are crazy about others or not. It doesn't matter.

Its taken for granted that lots of people are not going to like lots of other people but society functions anyway. Society becomes sick and paralysed when citizens are forced to like someone else because they are of a different race. The idea is risible on the face of it. Infantile.

What if we went to court and the prosecuting attorney stopped the procedure and informed the judge that the attorney for the defense didn't like him? What if the judge stopped the trial and accused the lawyers of not liking him? Its moronic.

We evolved to identify with our own race, its that simple. Can you not widen your view from the microscopic to see the world and how races and countries behave?

I haven't heard anyone call jews racist and they claim to have a right to a state of their own. So why dump on Samuel Jackson and myself? The very fact that "racism" exists demonstrates the tendency to identify with your own race. Its inevitable. Like night and day. It will never not exist.

The only reason non Whites are singing the racist song is because they benefit enormously from living in white nations. They get everything included in civilization without having to do any of the work. What's not to like?

But the minute White people start talking about what's in our interests than the r word starts to get thrown around. Its just a tool. A tool of the globalists and those who hate Christianity to use to disarm White people. Naturally non Whites love it. And you can see why. There are people who persecute Christians, like jews in Hollywood. Do you EVER wonder why Christians do not respond to this hatred?

You might say its because they're Christian but that's not it. Its understood that you like your own religion and shun everyone else's. jews in Hollywood have an agenda. Christians don't share that agenda so they do nothing.

annisisbell said...

jews and non Whites have an agenda. So when they attack White people with the result that we give in and give them whatever they learn how to behave to get what they want.

Whites have no agenda. So we just go along without attacking back. Yet WE are called racists?

You don't feed your neighbor's kids do you? You feed your own kids. You don't house your neighbor's kids, you don't send your neighbor's kids to college. So why again must we take care of the world? They've already bankrupted California, what is it you don't understand about this diversity thing and why only White people's countries are being made diverse!!!!

Belonging to your group is the basis of our evolution. It proceeds to include your community, your church, your country and of course your race. Its very basic. For early man, if you were ever expelled from your group, you died. There is always safety in the group.

That's why people strive to agree with the group. That's how the media can stigmatize certain people and therefore strike fear into people's hearts so they avoid that person and never, never make the same mistake he did lest they too become ostracized.

I can give you an example. I can say two words that will get a gut reaction from you. Not a thoughtful reaction because our enemies don't want you to think. Two words that you simply wish to avoid. And this is how stigmatizing is used as a tool to keep the herd in line. Since Shen has no argument, HE SOUGHT TO STIGMATIZE ME. That's how it works.

David Duke. They stigmatized Duke and yet how is he different from Allan Dershowitz? Jess Jackson? They try to make White people seem illegitimate but others belong. Why do you think jews keep harping on Hitler yet Stalin killed tens of millions?? Why? Ever heard of the Holodomer? The reason you haven't is because ITS NOT IN JEWS' INTERESTS to tell you about the Holodomer. DUH.

Its like back in the time of Bruce Lee. Lee was outraged and insulted that a White man was put into a tv program with martial arts while he was not. Yet what right did he have? This was OUR country. People didn't want to see a Chinese guy. Yet all these other races are always offended if we don't roll out the red carpet yet they would never DREAM of rolling out the red carpet to White people or other races in their countries.

Its like Mexico giving MExicans directions on how to get on our welfare while prosecuting South Americans, traveling through Mexico, to get to here. Its all bs.

You can tell that White people never THINK about any of this. They'll support open borders and all of it. Then they'll say "look what you did to the Indians".

Oh yeah? Was what we did to the Indians wrong? Well uh then why do you support those who are now doing the same things to us? How come all of a sudden its right?

My fantasy. Southern states make laws that drive the foreigners and non Whites out. These foreigners and non Whites then flee to the Northern White Liberal states.... they get a good dose of what they are sentencing future generations of White people to. We'd see how liberal they remain.

For practical reasons like avoiding bankrupcy and for their survival they'd have to do something, like send foreigners back to their own homelands.

Well, this is off the subject, but this is a better place to ask it as any other. Has anyone heard anything about a woman dying last month after police raided her home looking for her son at a Chattanooga public housing site? She was said to have had respiratory problems and when she asked to be allowed back into her apartment to retrieve needed meds, allegedly they wouldn't allow her or anyone back in? Supposedly she later died at a local hospital. I've gone to all the local news sites, but can't seem to find anything on the story. Which is not surprising.
