To:- BLM Headquarters Significance………Important
Subject Moving on from ‘Gone with the Wind’
Dear Fraternal Sisters, Brothers, Transistors and Transbrothers, etc. etc. (inclusive of all 73 versions of Trans-cis-acceptable nouns).
I refer to the complete reduction of the once revered film Gone With the Wind to a vehicle, previously known only for the existence of White Supremacy and the ridicule of the Black man, to a film which forever to be shown with a Foreword telling the world that all that romance has now gone, all the lies have gone, and all that is left is a skeleton, rattling as it swings in the American Winds of Change.
I urge you now to veer your sights to three novels and two films, the Novels are by Michael and Jeff Shaara, the films are by Ronald F. Maxwell. The novels are a Civil War Trilogy, being ‘Gods and Generals; a story about the early days of the Civil War: The Killer Angels, a story about the Battle of Gettysburg; and The Last Full Measure, the relating of the last two years of the Civil War, and the final defeat of the South. The films were entitled Gods and Generals: and Gettysburg.
Of the two films, ‘Gods and Generals is possible, from the BLM perspective, the worst. It shows the Confederate Generals as deeply religious and thoroughly professional: the cream of West Point. It depicts the Confederate Politicians as virtually ignoring the angle of slavery, and instead focussing almost intensely and solely upon the need to secede from the Union. This film shows the North, the Union Army, as being partial, badly led with incompetent generals much to the forefront. The most glaring mistake in the film is the portrayal of Confederacy-supporting white citizens actually acting with both care and kindness towards the slaves within their own homes, and the astonishing portrayal of those same black slaves responding with both respect and a sense of belonging to those same slave-owning Confederacy supporters. Contrary to the accepted belief, as relayed by the Black Lives Matter senior strategy, that all slaves hated their masters, all Confederacy-supporting white folk werre just racist despots in their homes, and the lasting Racist Injustice stem from this period.
The battle scenes, featuring the arch-slaver ‘Stonewall Jackson’, are but a furthering of the theme which gives ‘Understanding’ and applauds the whole Confederate stance. The one thing which was true of the senior figures in the Confederate senior military ranks and was portrayed as thus, was their overwhelming religious beliefs. Jackson and Lee were shown giving overly-long soliloquies with God; but fantastically, these portrayals turned people off, because, these days, religion doesn’t, fortunately, play a great part in the way people think.
The name of the novel ‘The Killer Angels’ was altered to become ‘Gettysburg’ in the film of the novel. This is possibly because, whilst few could be said to even recognise the title ‘The Killer Angels’ which book, incidentally, was a resounding commercial failure: everyone alive recognises ‘Gettysburg’. In terms of statistics alone, the film was fated to be scarred. Because the film’s budget was only $20 million, how could it possibly show a battle which involved over 125,000 men? So they shot the crowd and especially the Confederate army scenes, and then digitally enhanced them to look as though the numbers were trebled. A feature of the famous ‘Picketts Charge’ was the use of small drone cameras, which did show at least some of the extent of the brigades foolish enough to follow the orders of their Slaver overlords.
But the film is scarred again by its showing of the Confederate generals as warm, caring human beings, instead of the truly racist people that we in the BLM movement know them to be. It shows them thinking and worrying before sending men into battle, it showed them as gentlemen; which is possibly the worst thing which could have been said about them. I am about to tell you, senior members of the BLM movement, that we have to utterly destroy a man’s reputation; and thus destroy a man who supports us entirely. The character of General Robert E. Lee is played by Martin Sheen. He takes that character and makes him not only believable, he makes us understand him; so Sheen must be shown to be a traitor to our cause, for taking the money and acting a part which virtually makes Lee a hero, and why the real Lee was so loved by his men: instead of the flawed, racist, deranged demagogue he actually was. The film, made directly from the novel, has come to be regarded as factual, Tom Berenger, acting the part of General Longstreet, gives, unfortunately a strong performance as Lee’s senior general, acting almost as his conscience, and trying to speak out against the follies which he sees Lee is manoeuvring himself into.
The supporting actors are almost as bad as Martin Sheen, on both Union and Confederate sides of the conflict. Slavery, the one topic which is almost the only thing which an anti-slaver wishes to discuss, and ram home the terrible things still facing the average black man in modern-day America, is hardly mentioned. The Union regiment which is featured in this film, namely the 20th Maine, is led by Colonel Joshua Chamberlain, acted in ‘Gettysburg’ by Jeff Daniels. The Colonel’s spoken desire is for peace with justice, when it should have been to crush the Confederacy at all costs. His regiment is detailed at the very end of the Union Line at a hill named ‘Little Round Top: and is told by his commander, Colonel Vincent that he must hold the line; otherwise the Confederacy would roll up the Union lines from the unprotected side. The very same hill, alongside Big Round Top; which is the target given General Longstreet’s two divisions. When Chamberlain’s regiments state that their ammunition is fast running out, Chamberlain orders his regiments to ‘fix bayonets’ and charges down the hill, causing the men who supported slavery to turn and run. But, and of course it is a big ‘but’, the soldiers, the officers, do not even mention the ‘slaves’ they fight to free, and so another opportunity was lost.
Chamberlain’s regiment is detailed into the very centre of the Union Line, as he is told that, “you’ve had a terrible fight, so the commanders wish you to have a rest.”
Robert E Lee’s decision to attack that same centre, where Union artillery rakes the field from virtually a perfect semi-circle still puzzles military men today, and it is the one failure which, in the end, was the downfall of the Confederate cause, although that fact is mainly given a light brush, with Tom Berenger’s Longstreet attempting to persuade Lee, to reverse his decision to send 15,000 infantrymen marching over a mile towards that very centre which is so heavily defended by both cannon and rifle regiments. 15,000 men marched forwards; but after the cannon fire, sometimes almost at point-blank range, and the blizzard of rifle fire from the entrenched Union Regiments; only some 4,000 staggered back.
As for the two novels, it should be fairly easy to make them into targets of opportunity for the fools who follow our cause with such zeal and dedication. We only need whisper the ‘truth’ about these two books into the ears of the Liberal Left who drink our very words with such adoration, without question or compromise, and we can soon organise a book-burning, the likes of which our late but secretly-admired hero Adolf would have organised in those heady times of Munich and Berlin.
On a more practical note, I can see that certain of the ‘stars’ of the Premier League and of the Broadcasters are removing our badges, possible because some fool leaked the details of our campaigns against Israel and the Jews, but the majority of the fools still act like the blind sheep they are, and we shall overcome!
