|It seems like everybody loves the new film "Black Panther,"|
that is except a small group of pathetic little white supremacists.
However, this being the United States, the racists are trying to spoil the party. They always do. They very often fail, of course, so it makes it fun to mock these morons.
Still, it's incredibly disgusting we have to live with these white supremacists idiots. And I'm being understated when I say it like that.
It's important to check in with these odious morons, though, remind ourselves that we always must keep our guard up, and always resist the Nazis among us.
These scumbags started with Rotten Tomatoes reviews. They tried to make the "Black Panther" reviews really negative. I'll get into that first, then tell you even something worse.
Rotten Tomatoes is the online web site in which you, yes, you, can review movies. In general, Rotten Tomatoes is a fairly good indication of how much or little the general public likes a particular film. That makes it a not bad guide to help you decide which movie you're going to see tonight.
Most Rotten Tomatoes critics, including the professional ones, thought "Black Panther" was terrific. In fact, it got the highest Rotten Tomatoes score for any superhero film. As of Thursday, "Black Panther had a very nice 77 percent viewer approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Which means the racists failed again. They're so stupid.
As reported by CNN and numerous other media outlets, there was a move among the white supremacists among us.
Notice how the white supremacists tried to be cute. "Black Panther" is a Marvel Comic franchise. A lot of other popular movies come from the DC Comics franchise. The racists tried to spin this as just a friendly rivalry between Marvel and DC fans.
That element was probably in there, but I haven't heard of other organized movements on Facebook or elsewhere to discredit a superhero movie because of a comic book franchise competition.
As CNN says: "But given that "Black Panther" has an all-black cast and the storyline includes themes of race, many saw the move as more nefarious thatn just a friendly rivalry."
Then, of course it got worse. As numerous outlets like Vox and Huffington Post reported:
"Since Thursday, numerous false reports have bubbled up on social media claiming that white viewers were physically attacked by black fans at showings of the movie. Twitter and Facebook users have been taking images from unrelated incidents and reposting them, falsely claiming that they are photos of themselves or loved ones after racially motivated attacks."
I'm not sure of the purpose of these social media postings, other that to stir up the basest base of racists and Nazis, and to dupe the most gullible. And only the very most gullible, apparently.
The photos white people supposedly "beaten" by African-Americans at "Black Panther" showings come from such strange places and its so easy to trace them to their original, non-fake news sources.
One of them was a previously widely distributed photo of Rob Porter's ex-wife with a black eye. Porter, you might recall, is the White House aide recently forced out of a job because of history with abuse of women.
Another fake photo was a still from the show "The Walking Dead." Another was a stock photo of a bloody paper towel.
The best revenge against this tiny army of small minded racists is how well "Black Panther" is doing at the box office.
As of Thursday, "Black Panther" is raking in the dough at the box office, and is destined to be one of the most lucrative movies on record, says Variety and many other media reports.
I'm sure almost everyone who goes to see "Black Panther" is not thinking about sticking it to the white supremacists. But in this context, it's still wicked fun to see this movie's popularity surge.
