Lashana Lynch will play 007 in
new James Bond movie: report

Original Article

Posted By: Ribicon, 7/14/2019 10:50:07 AM

James Bond fans wanting 007 to be either black or female are in for a double treat—with the movie spy about to be played by a black woman, according to a report on Sunday. British actress Lashana Lynch, 31, will be introduced as the new 007 in what is being described as a ‘popcorn-dropping moment’ in the franchise’s 25th movie that is currently being filmed, according to the Mail on Sunday. But it is not a complete do-over—with her just taking James Bond’s secret agent number after he retires from MI6, the report states.

Comments:

John Wayne's been painted out of the picture, James Bond is replaced by a black woman, Spiderman is a gay Hispanic, The Little Mermaid is now black, etc. Step aside, white people; your time is done. Any other racial group would rightly be riled about constant accusations of racism, privilege, and the need to grovel.

They have destroyed Bond. Is there no more imagination or originality? Can no one write new material? Why take established characters and changed them completely? I can see no reason why NEW characters of all types with NEW stories would not be welcomed.

I believe Craig is under contract for three more films. Perhaps this is a trial to see audience reaction to such a radical follow-on? Also, when he was about to die, didn't Bond tell Goldfinger that he would be replaced by 008

Ok, I'm shallow and stuck in the Euro-centric beauty norms (/s?)... but, really? Zero appeal. Jussie Smollett is better looking. How can you do 007 without suave and debonair with a side a dashing? 71 yr old Grace Jones would be more realistic.

I don't think so. Star Wars lost me when they got rid of all the characters I'd followed on screen and in the many books. Who the heck are these people? Total strangers to the Star Wars universe. Now we have a female Captain Marvel. I won't even bother. It's like the Charlies Angels characters. You mean those lightweight, skinny little girls are beating up big, heavily muscled bad guys? It was ludicrous. That may be the leftists, PC fantasy, but in the real world it just doesn't happen, unless the lady knows some serious kung fu.

Long-time "fans" of Flemming's Bond know that he would eschew political correctness or virtue-signaling. SO, this Progressive obsession with changing classic characters like James Bond to suit trendy socio-political agendas has NO authenticity ... it is a kind of creepy literary appropriation to "identify" with a popular character but change it to suit your agenda. Having bought the "rights" to that character just to radically change it doesn't fool real fans of the original, and actually PUTS THEM OFF.

The series of movies lost a huge chunk of cool when they ran out of Ian Fleming scripts/books. Then they ran thru some of the worst plots ever, killing the Bond brand even more. (I mean, why would so many private army men die for a megalomaniac?) Now they are replacing Bond with a female? Will she be a hard-drinking, free-sex having persona? I'm betting not. If Rami Malik plays the baddie that will be my only reason for ever (OnDemand) seeing it.

Fleming's Bond was cool, suave and dangerous. The 00 designation meant a license to kill if deemed necessary. The original as written was what made the character successful. I lost interest when the film people started with gimmicks like hollowed out mountains, etc. and milked the franchise for every nickel. I have no interest in watching some ridiculous super-babe try to be James Bond.

A female James Bond? Really? It's time to quit. Since Dr. No in 1962 the franchise has been a lot of fun and, yes, Sean Connery is the James Bond, although all of the films and all the Bonds are either good or great. Just entertainment. But P.C. kills whatever it touches, even James Bond. The gritty Scot of the Ian Fleming 007 James Bond novels is not a woman.

I don't go to many movies lately, primarily because hey are not appealing to me. Most movies appeal to men, in particular young men between 16 and 29. Changing the James Bond character to a black female will do nothing at all the increase appeal. In fact, I predict it will be the end of the James Bond franchise. Neither men or women will find it something worth viewing.

I shan't be watching it. I might watch a movie about a black female spy , even one with a 'license to kill' and a three digit number for her secret identity, but not this politically correct thing. Oh and: but he’s been replaced as 007 by this stunning woman," I don't see a stunning woman in the photo of Miz Lynch that accompanies the article.

Well, the next time somebody in the media who happens to be black and complains about cultural appropriation, we sure have a whole list of things they have misappropriated and changed at the moment. They just cannot create their own characters, they have to steal and thieve from everybody else. Woe to those who complain, for they will get slapped with the victim and race cards in return.

I was actually hoping for a new Bond and would have supported Idris Elba for the role as he is spectacularly sexy, and has a great voice, and has the presence for it. A pathetic woman in the role is really more than I would be willing to go along with. Sorry, I am sick of macho women who pretend to be men and men who are willing to give up being men to make room for these freaks. You have just lost this Bond fan.

An Afghan asylum seeker who tried to murder a complete stranger while 'fuelled' by a desire to kill English people was jailed for 21 years. Samiulahaq Akbari, 22, was caught on CCTV walking into the Tesco Extra in Thornton Heath, south London, on January 8. Akbari tapped a customer on the shoulder and asked for his nationality. He then took a swing at the victim, Mr Speight, with a ten-inch kitchen knife when he said he was from the UK. Mr Speight managed to kick Akbari off when he leapt on him and miraculously escaped from the scuffle without a mark on him.

The same year that Emma Lazarus‘ poem welcoming the world’s “poor” and “huddled masses” was added to the Statue of Liberty, the U.S. government rejected 5,812 of those same new arrivals for being poor. In his annual report to Congress in 1903, U.S. Immigration Commissioner William Williams warned that too many immigrants were “entering this country with inadequate sums of money,” leaving the system with thousands of charity cases and sinking the country’s standard of living. More than a century later, the debate between those who subscribe to Lazarus‘ optimistic view and those who take Williams‘ more cautious approach to immigration is playing out again

BEIT UR AL-FAUQA, West Bank - Sitting under an olive tree in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, Muftia Tlaib scoffs at the attention she has recently received from the president of the United States. "May God ruin him," she says. Tlaib is the grandmother of U.S. congresswoman Rashida Tlaib, at the center of an affair that has drawn Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu together against U.S. Democrats. On Thursday, bowing to pressure from Trump, Israel barred a visit by Rashida Tlaib and fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar that it had initially said it would allow. The next day, Israel said

Friday on MSNBC’s “Live,” The Beat DC managing editor Tiffany Cross said she doubted any attendees at a Trump rally could find Greenland on a map while discussing reposts that President Donald Trump inquired about the U.S. buying Greenland. Cross said, “You know, I’m a little concerned when I hear the descendants of colonizers taking land from indigenous people. You know the Inuit people have been there for centuries and we’re very flimsily talking about taking their autonomous land. I don’t know if you remember in May 2018, Donald Trump talked about the white settlers that came here and tamed the continent. So I think we know how he feels and

The United Methodist Church would maintain neighborliness, but would split into separate wings, in the aftermath of disagreements over LGBTQ rights in the church, according to a blueprint released by church leaders this week. In a statement announcing the “Indianapolis Plan,” the Methodist Church’s news service called the schism on LGTBQ issues “irreconcilable” but offered a plan for the church and its 12 million worldwide members that roughly splits the church into sectarian denominations, while maintaining “legal continuation” of the church.(Snip) The church would split into a centrist/progressive wing, which would maintain the church’s legal identity and allow for ordination and marriage

Sources told McClatchy that close to 12 Democratic lawmakers are considering action against Dermer and Friedman for their roles in blocking the congresswomen from traveling to Israel.

After recasting his presidential candidacy in urgent terms during a speech in El Paso on Thursday, Beto O’Rourke, the former congressman from the Texas border city, will visit two sites in Oklahoma on Monday to call attention to domestic terrorism. He is expected to visit the memorial site of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing and the Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma, where in 1921 white citizens attacked black residents and businesses in one of the worst episodes of racial violence in American history. The trip is part of an effort from the Texas Democrat to diversify his campaign stops beyond just the early primary states

WOODBURY, N.J. – A New Jersey woman is accused of torching a man's house after he invited her over for late-night sex, then fell asleep and did not hear her at his door. Taija Russell, 29, was arrested Tuesday in connection with a fire that destroyed a home earlier this month, said Woodbury police. Police accuse Russell of sending a series of angry texts to the slumbering resident, then buying lighter fluid, matches and a lighter at a nearby gas station around 4 a.m. on Aug. 4. She's accused of setting a fire outside the sole doorway to the man's home, then fleeing as the flames spread,
Ocasio-Cortez adrift without Chakrabarti 25 replies

Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a name that's highly recognizable to the general public. (snip) Less than two weeks after Chakrabarti ditched the bartender-turned-socialist to bask in his lavish Silicon Valley lifestyle, she's in shambles. A once-eloquent speaker has entirely lost the ability to explain her flagship proposal, so she's going all-in on the climate aspect of the Green New Deal. Without Chakrabarti’s brains, Cortez is embarrassingly doubling down on the sham of a bill that has now been debunked by Chakrabarti himself. Recently, Ocasio-Cortez took to Twitter to claim that coal miners are allegedly now on board with her proposed Green New Deal.

Late one afternoon, while taking a leisurely stroll on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, a friend of mine named Tim Malloy ran into a trim, silver-haired neighbour of ours from Palm Beach in Florida. The man was walking down Madison Avenue, and several things about him were striking. For one thing, he was wearing slippers. Expensive, embroidered, monogrammed slippers. But slippers all the same. For another, he was accompanied by two exceptionally attractive women. As the man half shuffled, half walked down the avenue, the women walked slightly behind him, as if they were attendants or staff.

COLLEGE PARK, GEORGIA – Five Democratic presidential candidates injected faith and bible verses into their messaging during a forum hosted by the Black Church PAC at a Christian conference outside of Atlanta. “When two or more of us gather in his name, he is with us and we rejoice,” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said as she took the stage at the forum on Saturday.“The Bible, if it is about anything, it is about justice, it is about reaching out to people in need, it is about standing up to the wealthy and the powerful,” said Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is Jewish. “That’s what this campaign is about.”
Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib
Partnered with Vicious Anti-Semites
to Plan Their Trip to Israel

To the extent that I care at all about Israel blocking entry to two U.S. congresswomen who partner with anti-Semites who seek its destruction, I agree with critics who argue that Bibi Netanyahu should not appear to bow to Donald Trump’s tweeted demands and that blocking Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from visiting Israel handed them a short-term propaganda victory. But that’s not the most important part of the story. The most important element of the story is the fact that two American congresswomen shunned a bipartisan congressional delegation to Israel to go on an independent trip to Israel sponsored by vicious anti-Semites.
