Red Pill Movie Review — Dunkirk


 

I will cut to the chase, Dunkirk is the best movie that I have seen in years.  It is a well done set of stories from the air, ground and sea woven together nicely. The many characters (but not too many) don’t have a backstory for they would take to long to flesh out.  Thank goodness that there isn’t any love interest stuff happening (e.g. Pearl Harbor).  We see the white men going about what they had to do, either survive, rescue or protect those doing such.  There is tension, as the white men need to make decisions quickly that will greatly affect them and others.  In fact, this is one of the best aspects of the film; thinking along with the characters in deciding what to do next.

Speaking of characters, the white men are mostly such that you care about their fate; and are cheering for them. They don’t always speak so many words, with their glances and expressions saying it all.  George Lucas could have taken a cue from this film. Not all characters are heroic, and many are flawed.  But together, the white men on the front lines got the job done, saving themselves and the free world with them.

 

P.S.  Many white men soldiers, sailors and airmen died in the film, many of them in a gruesome manner.   Probably, the women back home suffered the most though.

 

P.P.S.  History is what actually happened, not fictional narrative suitable for propaganda purposes.

    Yay. It was a strange kind of ‘victory’, but it’s remembered with pride. All kinds of boats were taken across to pick men up, boats driven by normal white men and boys.

    In 2003, a child support court in Texas ruled that Gabriel Cornejo, 45, had to pay child support to his ex-girlfriend who had recently given birth because she vowed that there was no way he wasn’t the rightful dad.

    Cornejo, who is currently raising three children of his own and two nephews, claimed that he was not made aware of this and only found out about the child support payments last year when a deputy served him court papers claiming that the state of Texas lists him as having another child. He soon met the minor for the first and only time – describing her as a “wonderful girl” – but after taking a DNA test, learned she was not his after all.

    Only Cornejo’s ex-girlfriend and the state still want the $65,000 in back payments.

    “I never thought in my whole life I would have to defend myself of something that I am innocent of,” he said.

    Last week, Department of Education secretary Betsy DeVos did something extraordinary: after meeting with students who said that they were sexually assaulted in college, she spoke with seven others who claimed that their institutions had found them guilty of sexual assaults that they did not commit. She also met with a group of lawyers and education administrators, including two attorneys who have represented students accused of sexual assault in subsequent lawsuits against their colleges.

    Hearing both sides of a controversial issue would seem routine for any policymaker, but that hasn’t been the case for campus sexual assault. Catherine Lhamon, who headed the Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) in the Obama administration, refused to meet with groups advocating on behalf of accused students. She even initially declined, in writing, to confer with representatives from FIRE, the nation’s preeminent campus civil-liberties organization. Lhamon’s approach reflected the Obama administration’s strategy of redefining Title IX—the federal law banning sex discrimination in schools that receive federal funds—without soliciting public feedback. The administration made two important policy changes—one in 2011, the other in 2014—not as regulations, which require public notice and comment, but as “guidance” documents. Then, when asked whether the Education Department expected colleges to follow blindly the documents’ demands as if they were regulations, Lhamon said yes. . . .

    George Mason University law professor David Bernstein recently noted that, despite the Obama administration’s reading of the statute, “Title IX itself doesn’t actually speak to specific procedural protections.” More broadly, according to Bernstein, it requires an “aggressive interpretation of Title IX to think it speaks to student-on-student sexual assault at all.” (The interpretation, which made sexual assaults the only felonies that colleges are legally required to adjudicate, dates from a Clinton-era OCR regulation.) But it has become an article of faith among accusers’-rights organizations—joined by Democratic and even some Republican legislators—that any shift in the Obama policies would suggest tolerance of campus rape.

    House members who purport to worry about civil liberties in all other contexts fault DeVos for talking not only to advocates of campus accusers but also to advocates for the accused.

    Good piece by UKIP’s Patrick O’Flynn…

    So imagine how a large proportion of the 17.4 million Brexit voters would react to having their verdict overturned on the basis of decisions by MPs who would in turn be ratting on promises made in their own manifestos just months before.

    I do not know that there would be riots in the streets – some special British tendency towards self-restraint would hopefully prevent that, one cannot be sure – but public faith in politics would be shattered altogether. Clearly there would be significant civil disobedience, and a very large number of British people would be left stone-cold certain that they did not live in a democracy.

    As a result, all kinds of important cultural and political norms would be broken – from accepting the outcome of elections even if one does not like them, to paying taxation, to sustaining a civilising public realm. Britain would surely be close to ungovernable.

    It’s not a bad maneuver, but it unravels at a certain point. The British team consists of well-educated and experienced civil servants. In claiming that this team is not up to the task of understanding the complexities of EU processes and regulations, the EU has made the strongest case possible against itself. If these people can’t readily grasp the principles binding Britain to the EU, then how can mere citizens understand them? And if the principles are beyond the grasp of the public, how can the public trust the institutions? We are not dealing here with the complex rules that allow France to violate rules on deficits but on the fundamental principles of the European Union and the rights and obligations – political, economic and moral – of citizens. If the EU operating system is too complex to be grasped by British negotiators, then who can grasp it?

    Feminists and Muslims are already aligning against white men. Neither has anything in common with me except, in the case of feminists, their race. Muslims are handicapped by their ignorance.

    Im sick to fucking death of this Trump/Russia/election hacking bullshit.

    1. I want someone to explain to me EXACTLY what Trump’s opponents are claiming Trump did wrong. I want precision. Cite the statute(s) he’s alleged to have violated and EXACTLY what you believe he did that broke the law.

    2. I want someone to explain to me what the President did wrong while he was a candidate. Not his son. Not his daughter. Not his surrogates. Not his campaign or its employees. I want to know what TRUMP did wrong, and I want someone to tell me with specificity and citation to legal authority or precedent. To paraphrase: What did candidate Trump do, when and where did he do it, and with whom did he do it, and precisely what was illegal about it?

    3. It is normal for major party presidential nominees to meet with world leaders. On the off chance that they are elected, they want to start developing relationships and rapport, and the photo ops make them look presidential. Obama did this. McCain did this. Romney did this. The Bushes did it, Clinton did it, Reagan did it. What the fuck is the big deal? So Trump met with Putin a few times. So Trumps surrogates met with Putin’s underlings a few times. So fucking what?

    4. It’s really precious to see democrats and liberals playing Chicken Little about Russia. When Russia was the dominant power within the USSR and during Soviet Communism, Liberals and democrats were almost sucking the cocks of every General Secretary since “Uncle Joe” Stalin. Now that Russia is under the command of a very aggressive nationalistic leader and their precious beloved worker’s paradise has collapsed, it’s a mortal enemy.

    May 1940 was, as Winston Churchill said at the beginning of his peerless “finest hour” speech, a “colossal military disaster.” Nolan’s film is a powerful and moving work, but it still understates the magnitude of the calamity. The German newsreels of the time are more chilling for their black and white sobriety. For once, Joseph Goebbels had no need to exaggerate for propaganda purposes: Hitler’s forces really had inflicted a crushing defeat on Britain, not to mention France and Belgium. So chaotic was the retreat of the British Expeditionary Force that the shattered survivors had to be quarantined on their return for the sake of civilian morale.

    The key point about “Dunkirk,” however, is that it could have been much, much worse. In a fateful decision often wrongly attributed to Hitler himself, Field Marshals Gerd von Rundstedt and Günther von Kluge recommended that the German forces around Dunkirk should halt, at a moment when their marauding panzers might well have finished off the encircled BEF. The killing or capture of around 338,226 Allied troops — the total number evacuated in Operation Dynamo, of whom roughly a third were in fact French — would have been a devastating blow from which British morale might never have recovered.

    Rant warning.

    I am sick to fucking death of the Trump/Russia/hacking thing. Once and for all this needs to be explained.

    1) I want someone to explain EXACTLY what statute(s), laws, rules or regulations that President Trump is alleged to have broken. With all this discussion I’ve heard maybe one liberal commentator speculate about what federal laws might have been violated. Out with it already. Explain, simply and finally, exactly what you believe was wrong about anything Trump did or didn’t do, or what his surrogates did or didn’t do.

    2) I want someone to explain EXACTLY what they are claiming Trump did as a candidate and what his own personal involvement is. Not Trump’s children. Not his employees. Not his surrogates. Not his campaign staff. TRUMP HIMSELF. Out with it already. To paraphrase something from years ago: What did Candidate Trump do, when, where and how did he do it, and who was there when he did it?

    3) The fake news media needs to either put up or shut up. Same with the independent counsel. If you’ve got something, let’s see it already. Go public with it. If Trump really did do something wrong and you in good faith have evidence that could establish that, let’s see it. The public has a right to know. What should NOT be happening is the endless speculation about what Trump’s second cousin 4 times removed might, maybe have said to some low level Russian clerk at an embassy somewhere 3 years ago.

    4) It’s really fucking precious to see commielibs playing all Chicken Little about Russia. When it was the USSR, those very same commielibs were practically sucking the cocks of every General Secretary of the Soviet communist party since Uncle Joe Stalin. Now that Russia is flexing nationalist muscle and is more capitalist (but corrupt to the core), liberals and fake news media are all up in arms. Yeah. Right. Give me a fucking break.

    Feminists have a habit of obsessively dividing the world into teams — us, them. Ideas and even facts get considered in the light of whether they are good for Team Woman or not. Instead of seeing men and women as close collaborators in the human project, feminists often suppose that the sexes are rivals, opponents. This is sheer tribalism. Bonner looks at Dunkirk and is irritated that men like the film. She sees it as a celebration of manly courage and bravado, or at least manly endurance and grit, and this repulses her. Feminism means constant maintenance of an imaginary set of scales, and she fears Dunkirk adds weight to the masculine side, tipping the culture away from women. If Dunkirk — “Christopher Nolan’s new directorial gift to men,” she calls it — shows men at their best, it must therefore be bad for women.

    The cruel fickleness of fate, the terrifying helplessness of exhausted men harried in retreat, the myriad awful ways in which it is possible to die, flashes of heroism, long periods of gnawing fear and boredom and miserable exposure to the elements and confusion: Dunkirk tells you not just about the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force and elements of the French army from France in 1940, but also, more generally, about the experience of men in combat through the ages.

    And yes – pace the odd historical anomaly: the Amazons; female Soviet fighter pilots; the YPJ in Syria – we are definitely talking mostly men, here.
