In Defense of Clint Eastwood’s ‘Gran Torino,’
Now Under Attack from Left-Wing Cancel

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 4/10/2021 6:48:09 PM

It was only a matter of time before the left-wing cancel mob came for Gran Torino, Clint Eastwood’s 2008 movie about a bigoted retired autoworker and his Asian Hmong neighbors. The racial epithets spewed by protagonist Walt Kowalski are so prolific that it’s hard to imagine the movie being released under today’s ultra-woke Hollywood standards.Anyone who’s seen Gran Torino and has half a brain will easily grasp that the movie is the opposite of racist. After Walt catches Thao, the Hmong teenager next door, trying to steal his cherished 1972 Gran Torino, he puts the boy to work fixing houses around the neighborhood

I was a good movie. Accurate portrayal of folks in some neighborhoods, and THAT is what angers them.

A wonderful movie, with a great message. Lost on liberals, as all great messages are. The Gran Torino was the lesser of the classics, though, behind Walt's M-1 Garand.

I didnt like the movie and was very disappointed with it. Not because of any racial things being said. Didn't even notice those. It was because it was a Clint Eastwood movie with almost no action in it. Just a big yawn. The M1 Garand was nice, but I have one of my own and can see it anytime I want.

Terse and worthwhile essay. A fine defense of the movie. Odd how the open-minded ethos of the 60s has devolved into this pathetic, whiny cowering. Like the voter ID thing, as if certain ethnicities are too befuddled by modern life to get a state identification card, or laugh off ignorance (as Walt’s more egregious bigotries should be— and were intended to be— laughed off; pursuant to a broader point about the, dare I say it-? ...The brotherhood of man). Truly pathetic that the avatars of CRT and BLM think their patronizing, condescending policies and rhetoric are somehow empowering. What a bunch of weak minded fools.

Remember Never Trump? For four years, an influential clique of think tankers, Republican operatives and talking heads claimed that any conservative who supported ­Donald Trump was complicit with a uniquely malevolent presidency. But if Trumpian conservatives are ­responsible for everything the 45th president was faulted for, then Never Trump should likewise own the evils of the new Biden administration. Never Trumpers spoke of the Trump GOP almost as if it were Saddam Hussein’s Ba’ath Party, a dictator’s discredited political organ, badly in need of a purge. “President Donald Trump leaves office with a crimson-stained legacy,” thundered Peter Wehner, vice president of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

During the interview, Sidney Powell predicted that Maricopa County’s upcoming audit will reveal over 100,000 fraudulent ballots in Arizona. Maybe that explains why Democrats sent their top Attorney Mark Elias to stop the audit before the fraud is revealed.Sidney then took a swipe at Joe Biden in her own colorful way.

There have been 60 shootings on expressways in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago so far this year. Fox News notes this puts the city on pace to top the 128 shootings witnessed in all of 2020, and it already surpasses the 52 such shootings which took place in 2019. Illinois State Police are responding to the gun violence surge by spending $12.5 million on cameras with which to monitor the expressways. NBC 5 reports one person “was seriously hurt” in the latest expressway shooting. That shooting occurred Thursday morning just after 11 a.m. on I-57.

As usual, Republicans appear to be the only ones trying to sound the alarm about the worsening crisis regarding the massive influx of illegal migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border, especially Republicans from border states.In recent weeks, Republicans from Texas especially have led delegations to the state to talk to Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents who are struggling to deal with the influx. In March alone, for instance, a record 170,000 migrants were intercepted crossing illegally into the U.S., with 1,000 or more getting away…each day.

Horrifying video footage from the insurrection showed the facility’s entrance on fire and its doors shaking as agents were “trying to apparently get out.”Besides trying to burn down the facility and kill those inside, the left-wing extremists also reportedly launched fireworks at the building, lit a fire in its driveway and smashed its windows.Yet as of Sunday morning, not a single media outlet in America save for Fox News had even taken note of the insurrection.

They did a dishonest hatchet job on one governor, leaving all the others jealous that the media doesn’t think enough of them to try and destroy them before they become Joe Biden’s nemesis. That governor is Ron DeSantis of Florida.“60 Minutes” didn’t attack Greg Abbott of Texas. They didn’t attack Kristi Noem of South Dakota.

Joe Biden has stepped out to attend Mass amid news that the U.S. is considering sending cash payments to Central America to stem the record-breaking number of migrants illegally crossing the southern border. Biden - who is a devout Catholic - was pictured waving to waiting media after the service at the Church of the Holy Trinity in Washington, DC on Saturday. The President may have been praying for divine intervention as the border crisis deepens, attracting harsh criticism from both Republicans and Democrats alike. Last month, more than 172,00 migrants were caught coming across the border illegally, including 18,890 unaccompanied minors - the highest number ever recorded.

Joe Biden may have been something like a moderate, once. As a senator, he defended the Hyde Amendment, which protects pro-life taxpayers from footing the bill for something they consider to be murder. Senator Biden also voted for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993. Even as late as 2003, Biden voted for a bill to prohibit partial-birth and late-term abortion. Biden did indeed work with Republicans to pass legislation. In 1987, Biden condemned Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s scheme to pack the Supreme Court to support the New Deal. Alas, that Joe Biden is nowhere to be found in the White House.

Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin is determined to root out “extremism” from the ranks of the military. He has just concluded a 60-day series of “listening sessions” dealing with the question of how he should go about the task of cleansing the armed forces of bad thoughts and is now ready to begin implementing programs and policies to that end. But Austin has a huge problem. He has to be able to define “extremism” in such a way as to safeguard our constitutional liberties while rooting out the skinheads, the Klan members, the gangbangers, and violent revolutionaries that make up a small but significant fraction of the armed forces. What is “extremism”?
