You know, while this is serious business, rebutting the left’s endless allegations of racism, I’ve been mostly mocking so far in my series on “racist movies.” But it’s beyond bothersome that “Black Hawk Down” is included and ranked at #27. And here’s the caption:
Ridley Scott’s account of the 1993 “Battle of Mogadishu” drew heavy fire for casting African-Americans, who neither look nor sound like Somalis, to portray them as an ignorant, extra dark and scary, bloodthirsty mob of villains with no legitimate cause to attack U.S. Army Rangers. Well, they’ve got their cause now.
I guess indigenous affirmative action quotas are de rigueur among leftists nowdays. But as anyone who’s read anything on the Clinton administration’s policy in Somalia knows, the firefight there actually did have “bloodthirsty villains” attacking U.S. forces. And of course Americans were in the country to provide massive humanitarian relief to non-combatant Somalis, who were facing catastrophic circumstances amid the country’s civil war. According to the Wikipedia entry, U.S. forces delivered “48,000 tons of food and medical supplies in six months to international humanitarian organizations trying to help the over three million starving people in the country.” So to be clear here, when you see all these leftist “racist” attacks on everything from the tea partiers to movies like “The Hurt Locker” and “Falling Down,” these constitute, in their totality, powerful evidence for the vicious hatred of America — in all of its manifestations — that is the core of Democratic/leftist ideology (here, for example):
