Kevin Costner’s Mr. Brooks: Smart, White and a Serial Killer

Edmund Connelly


In the 2007 psychological thriller Mr. Brooks, Kevin Costner stars as the eponymous Mr. Brooks, a wealthy and accomplished White American male. The film begins with him receiving an award for Portland, Oregon, Man of the Year, whereupon he thanks his faithful and attractive blonde wife. Mr. Brooks looks good in his tuxedo and exudes an enviable air of restrained confidence, quiet reason, and generous compassion. He’s a  Christian, an American man in the prime of life, a role model for those with traditional American values.

He is also an inveterate serial killer.

Mr. Brooks now joins a long list of other Hollywood films that feature a brilliant White man as serial killer. Take, for instance, Seven, a 1995 film starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. These two detectives are chasing a serial killer (Kevin Spacey) who sadistically but with a literary flair dispatches his victims in gruesome ways.

Next, consider the film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’s American Psycho, where the protagonist, Patrick Bateman, is a product of Phillips Exeter Academy, Harvard, and Harvard Business School. A rising Wall Street star, Bateman (played by Christian Bale) is nonetheless a homicidal maniac, though not one without charming touches.

The book, “which recounts a New York investment banker’s secret life of rape, torture, murder, cannibalism and necrophilia” was of course praised by critics as well as academics for (what else?) “its transgressive and postmodern qualities.” You see, transgressive is good when it means casting a normal-appearing White guy as a monster. Transgressive would doubtless be bad if it violated the boundaries of academic left-chic multicultural ideology.

The modern template for Hollywood serial killers, however is Dr. Hannibal Lecter, particularly in the 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs. As an intellectually brilliant White guy, Dr. Lecter is the epitome of the modern image a serial killer. Never mind that at a more mundane level, actual serial killers are more likely to appear as ordinary

neighbors. Or that they are often Black rather than White.

What makes Mr. Brooks of interest to me are the ideological assumptions underpinning the story and its powerful imagery. For they both create and bolster the multicultural insistence that White men are uniquely evil in human history, no matter what their putative accomplishments may have been.

Mr. Brooks is akin to two films by Jewish director Joel Schumacher. In his 1996 film adaptation of John Grisham’s novel A Time to Kill, Schumacher creates a scene in which two filthy and brutish Southern Whites stalk, rape and hang a 10-year-old black girl named Tonya Hailey. Three years later his film 8mm, starring Nicolas Cage, appeared. In that film, evil emanated from White culture itself. For starters, a wealthy man named “Mr. Christian” has paid good money to commission an actual snuff film. The man hired to do the mutilation is shown to be an ordinary White man whose mother is repeatedly shown to be a practicing Christian.

And at the end of the film, the detective informs the widow Christian that her husband indeed sponsored a real snuff film. Overwhelmed, she kills herself, leaving a note saying, “Try to forget us.” The underlying message, then, is that White “Christian” society is irredeemably malevolent and must be made to disappear.

Turning to Mr. Brooks, we have the same theme about irredeemable evil. But director Bruce A. Evans succeeds in serving it up on ever more levels. To begin with, Brooks himself is shown with an addiction to killing, particularly when there is a sexual angle to it. In the first murder sequence of the film, for instance, he stalks a young couple and finally breaks into their house as they are having sex. As is his signature, after killing them, he poses them nude for pictures, which then become his sexual trophies. As much as he cherishes these trophies, however, his rules are that they must be destroyed so as to leave absolutely no evidence to the killings.

The writing, directing and cinematography in Mr. Brooks are first rate, as are the stars. This is perhaps Costner’s best role to date, finally severing him from the all-American boy image he invariably portrays. In a brilliant move, William Hurt is cast as Brooks’ alter ego “Marshall.” Throughout the movie the two verbally spar — and laugh — as they plot and carry out their killings — and keep from getting caught.

Kevin Costner and co-star William Hurt

Marshall is the id, the one who loves life and sex . . . and killing. Brooks embodies both the ego and super ego. The former is represented by Brooks’ daily character as shrewd businessman and loving family man. The latter is evidenced by Brooks’ constant praying to God to cure him of his affliction, or at least to give him the strength to resist these urges. This part of Brooks knows that what he is doing is evil.

The film explicitly shows that Brooks is a practicing Christian, reminding me of the 1997 Charlie Sheen film Bad Day on the Block (also known as Under Pressure). This film too begins with a public award being bestowed on an exemplary White male figure, in this case the heroic fireman portrayed by Sheen. Soon, however, we learn that this Christian fanatic has abused his family and now threatens the lives of his innocent neighbors. Throughout the film, he recites Christian Scripture, including when he twists and breaks the neck of an African American policewoman. (Earlier, he had sadistically murdered an Asian American repairman.)

We see a similar juxtaposition in Mr. Brooks, including first the public acclamation, followed by invoking Christian Scripture. In Brooks’ case, he intones what is commonly known as the “Serenity Prayer” used by Alcoholics Anonymous:

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.

We know he is Christian because of his use of “He” and “Him” to describe Jesus Christ.

Also, when he attends A.A. meetings, Brooks is shown inside a church replete with stained glass windows. Never mind that he could have just as easily been shown in a nondescript meeting hall or bland institutional room. Finally, in a later scene, when his college-age daughter informs him that she is pregnant, Brooks is adamant that she not get an abortion, a clear signifier that he is a conservative Christian.

What makes this film so unrelievedly multicultural, however, is the casting. Who are the White men in the film? In addition to Brooks and Marshall, there is one Mr. Baffert, witness to Brooks’ double murder. Baffert, whom Brooks later names “Mr. Smith,” is another intelligent White man, a mechanical engineer, the kind of man who in real life did so much to build America into the modern mechanical marvel that it is. In Mr. Brooks, though, he is a creep. His hair is dirty and unstyled, as is his scruffy beard. In contrast to the suave Brooks, he has no manners, style or even a sense of humor. Rather, he is a voyeur who admits to having photographed his neighbors during sex so he could later use the photos to masturbate.

It is during just such a photography session that Mr. Smith happens to capture on film Brooks killing the young lovers. In the kind of twist common to the film, rather than going to the police, he uses the pictures to blackmail Brooks. And not for money, either. Mr. Smith would like to blackmail Brooks into taking him out on his killing sprees and teaching him the finer points of thrill killing. Together, they do just that, and Mr. Smith is indeed elated at such cold blooded murder.

The only other main White male character is a sadistic killer called “The Hangman.” His specialty is hanging his victims in unique poses in various quarters. Newly escaped from prison, he becomes part of the plot. With a multitude of tattoos and a nasty drug habit, he’s a real number.

On the other hand, the good guys are not White males. In fact, the best good guy is not even a guy; it’s a female detective played by Demi Moore. Apparently she got such a thrill out of playing a character every bit the equal of a male soldier in G.I. Jane that she reprised the role ten years later in Mr. Brooks. In the 1997 G.I. Jane, she nearly bested the top Navy SEAL in a knock-down, no-holds-barred fight — and she had her hands tied behind her back. There’s no question about G.I. Jane being a blatant propaganda film for feminism.

Demi Moore as G.I. Jane

The same is true of Mr. Brooks, where Moore appears as Det. Atwood, a selfless crime fighter. The daughter of a very rich man, she opted to forge her own way in the world by becoming a cop. The motive, it seems, is the fact that her father openly displayed his disappointment with having a daughter rather than a son. So Moore’s character is again out to prove a feminist point.

Incidentally, her second husband is a rat-fink White male, too. He married her for the money and connections and now wants a divorce and $5 million-dollar settlement. During negotiations, we see that his lawyer is a woman, while Atwood has a black female lawyer as well as an older White male. For most of the film, however, only the powerful black woman with a buzz cut interacts with Atwood. Also, Atwood’s boss down at the precinct is a no-nonsense woman, while her partner is an African American male.

Thus far I’ve described a fairly typical modern Hollywood contrivance where the bad guys are White and the good people are not White males. In fact, you could say it’s a cliché to have such casting. What else would we expect from the liberal climate that is Hollywood?

This multicultural distraction is a shame because the kind of deep psychological study of a White man as shown in Mr. Brooks is not necessarily unwelcome, as unpleasant as it may be. In the absence of a hostile elite that is scripting — or at least eliciting —  these venomous depictions of White society, a movie such as Mr. Brooks could actually provide insight, or even a helpful perspective on the distortions modern life can engender in a man. If such negative imagery of White men were not so ubiquitous, the occasional role-model-gone-bad saga would be far from fatal. At a minimum, it would provide relief, if only imaginary and vicarious, from the routines of daily life.

Thus, for example, Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 Psycho served far more as diversionary entertainment than as a component in the destruction of Western culture. With Eisenhower still in office and the Civil Rights movement yet to shatter the structure of American life, the culture of the time could withstand the negative portrayal of a White American male of the time. The good guys were White, and the bad guys were White.

Anthony Perkins at the Bates Motel

The Culture of Critique

What makes things so different today is the fact that American culture has been subjected to a withering campaign of critique calling into question the value of traditional American — if not Western — culture. And as I have argued elsewhere, a key component of this campaign has been Hollywood film.

Considered in this context, Mr. Brooks most decidedly serves as a further salvo in the war on White culture. The trope of a murderous White male nicely parallels the same lesson being taught to tens of millions of American high school and college students: that White nations became rich and powerful through genocide committed against others. Because Whites are incorrigible in this behavior, the only just solution is the elimination of the cause. Cue Susan Sontag’s obscene comment that “The white race is the cancer of human history.” (Incidentally, does anyone really believe that just because this war is currently waged primarily against White males that Whites as a whole will survive? To me, it has always seemed obvious that once White males are gone, White females are headed for extinction, too.)

What makes Mr. Brooks more than just a standard multicultural Hollywood tale is the fact that Mr. Brooks’ murderous compulsion is integral to his being, impossible to expunge. In fact, the logic of the story is that it is part of his DNA. We know this because the latter part of the film makes it explicit by showing that Brooks’ daughter has inherited this compulsion.

The daughter’s character is interesting. She first appears after dropping out of college and returning to Portland (minus her BMW or any money to pay for her cab). The movie makes clear that she was a student at Stanford but was admitted undeservedly. As her mother chides, “Your father pulled in favors to get you into that school.” This is the standard argument in favor of affirmative action — that “White privilege” allows under-qualified Whites access to prestigious institutions, not native ability.

As mentioned, the daughter is pregnant, but the real twist in the story comes when a detective from Palo Alto (again, a woman) turns up at the opulent Brooks estate to report that there’s been a hatchet murder back on campus. Though not officially a suspect, the daughter is questioned nonetheless. Brooks (and Marshall) quickly connect the dots: the daughter too has the killer gene and has begun acting upon the urges it creates.

The moralist in Brooks sees the dilemma: allow the police to proceed in their investigation and they will soon catch the careless daughter. One good aspect of that, he reasons, is that imprisonment may cure his daughter of her disease. On the other hand, it is his beloved daughter and soon she will have a child — his grandchild. Out of familial love, he must protect them. Consequently, he devises a scheme to go to Palo Alto, commit a copycat murder that will provide his daughter an alibi, and ultimately provide protection for his family.

Ironically, Marshall, who loves killing so much, is against this plan because of the risks involved. Further, the motive is wrong. Brooks will do this for reasons other than the thrill of it, and that bothers Marshall. But Brooks will protect his daughter, so off he goes to Stanford, new hatchet in possession, and creates an alibi for her.

So we know that Brooks truly loves his daughter and is crushed when he learns that she has inherited his “sickness.” This knowledge haunts him, as is shown in a dream sequence where he comforts her as she sleeps. Suddenly, she stabs him in the neck with scissors she has been concealing and he bleeds to death, scissors still embedded in his jugular.

In closing, I’ll say that the film leaves me with truly mixed feelings. Seen in isolation, it is a film of rare power, insight, and quality. But as I’ve argued, this film does not exist in isolation. On the contrary, it is a culture construct existing at a specific time and place — and for specific reasons. By featuring two Aryan-looking men with piercing blue eyes who personify the old American elite as such malevolent characters, the film sends messages both conscious and subliminal that are sure to prejudice viewers against people like this in real life.

It is far too uncomfortably a cinematic image of the anti-White “culture of critique.”

    Excellent analysis, but please try not to refer to White men so often by the generic term “males.” Yes, I am male, but so is my dog. The Cultural Marxists deliberately refer to White men as males, guys, boys, just about anything but men, as part of their agenda of diminishing us in every way possible. Racially aware Whites should avoid using CM terminology whenever possible.

    The sad fact is, is that most crime shows with the exception of the “The First 48 hours” generally portrays the perps as White, male/female, college educated and a working professional. One could easily get the impression that the most dangerous and criminally inclined group are White professionals from the TV crime shows.

    In terms of replacing the White action hero with minorities – it’s failed. Danzel Washington is already too long in the tooth. Wesley Snipes has self destructed. Vin Diesel has had fits and starts but really hasn’t progressed beyond the juvenile “fast and furious” car racing franchise. Will Smith just doesn’t cut it no matter what role he’s playing. It doesn’t hurt that the Jews who run Hollywood have zero directorial talent and can’t put together vehicles that showcase their minority sock puppets.

    Big picture wise, Hollywood has pretty much written off the over 25 crowd and longer makes movies for a older audience. It’s a easier and less demanding audience demographic as well. You don’t need much of a story or even good acting. Just lots of action and special effects.

    I think if blacks understood why serial killers are viewed as overwhelmingly white, while other criminals are disproportionately black, they wouldn’t find it very flattering. The perception is usually that blacks kill out of rage or in the process of robbery or rape, a very primitive caricature that suggests a jungle mentality, the black criminal is also seen as less likely to be careful enough to avoid detection; by comparison it’s easier to think of demented but intelligent white serial killer.

    ““What can we do to make it all stop?” It’s a legitimate question, but it never brings a substantive answer.”

    There are many things we can do to make it stop. Expressing ourselves on forums like this is one item on a long list. Here’s my short list:

    1) Moral and spiritual regeneration of Whites (end the porn; sit in one of your ancestor’s churches now and then, connect with the Immutable)
    2) Regeneration of White male friendship and brotherhood (which follows from that automatically)
    3) Networking and mutual support in real life
    4) Increase teaching and awareness-raising among Whites

    That should be substantive enough for you. The list could extent to 100 and a thousand. But nothing will be obtained without the all of the 1st three.

    I spend a couple of hours every day absorbing the perpetual despair on sites that like White people. Someone inevitably asks in the comments to articles, “What can we do to make it all stop?”

    It’s a legitimate question, but it never brings a substantive answer.

    Some of the more timid sites have a standard reply that has to do with voting our racial and cultural problems away.

    Most of the sites keep offering more proof of the problems, but never offer a solution. When hard men still roamed this land it was often said that, “If you’re pointing out a problem without offering a solution, then you’re just bitching.”

    The only thing I can offer without breaking the law is to tell you to look at what you already know.

    You know how Idi Amin Dada dealt with his enemies.

    You know how Hitler dealt with his enemies.

    You know how Chewbacca dealt with his enemies.

    So, why don’t you know how to deal with your enemies?

    At 17 I fell in love with a red-headed lass with flashing eyes and the slightest freckles on her ivory skin. I wasn’t able to keep her.

    Later, in my 20′s, I heard that she was murdered by one who is, according to estimates, possibly the most extensive serial killer in America: Coral Eugene Watts. He was an African American.

    Based on the claims Watts made to interrogators, his statement about his fingers and toes, he may be America’s worst serial killer, right up there with the “Fish” monster (who is considered by many to have been Jewish).

    The papers called her Suzanne, but we always called her Sue. The way he killed Sue (Searles) was he held down her head in a flower vase filled with water (sort of like the pic above that depicts the race-traitor Costner dunking the race-traitor Moore). In fact, when I saw that picture I thought of Watts and how he drowned Sue. He picked her out randomly as she was coming home from a party in Houston, and drowned her in the vase beside her apartment. Then he buried her in a nearby field.

    It wasn’t tongue in cheek. The whole point of Bateman was that he was a conformist; “I want…to fit…in.” He says these things because he wants to be part of the NY establishment. He neither believed nor disbelieved what he was saying; he had no actual beliefs. He just went along with everything.

    The scene where he was praising Huey Lewis and Phil Collins seemed honest to me. They had to be, because that was part of the point of the film– he defined himself by the bands he liked, by the suits he wore, by his hair style, etc. He listened to the most vapid, mass-produced stuff because he himself was mass produced.

    Interesting review. Oddly enough, I am a Kevin Costner fan but until very recently, refused to watch this Mr. Brooks movie because I did not want to see Costner in the role of a serial killer. I finally broke down and watched it about 2 weeks ago, so this review is quite timely.

    As always, Edmund Connelly does a fantastic job of dissecting the preponderance of jewish anti-white hatred and demonization that is becoming such a standard in nearly every movie that comes out of the sewer of Hollywood.

    I must say that I am still quite frequently amazed at how many of my fellow whites still can’t recognize what the jews are doing with their media control. It is as though whites have grown so accustomed to being spat upon and to seeing their race depicted in the most demonizing fashion possible – that most of them have become brainwashed to accept it and not feel the least bit insulted.

    Tip: Better wake up soon, White man. Time is short, and we all need to come up to speed on what the jews did to the Whites in Russia once they had seized absolute, unchecked power over them.

    The last time I was in church it was full mostly of old women, poufs and the equality crowd, yet the Hollywood Jews have this pathological fear of Chritianity. You would almost think that they know something that we have forgotten.

    This constant slandering of OUR PEOPLE in their own lands is evil and this behaviour must be attacked in big and small ways .
    I can’t wait for the Russian Movies showing Jews in control of Gulags , as has been pointed out by Solsenitzen . I saw some sketches a while ago from a surviver depicting a strip down display of Females for selection by the camp guards & management . These criminals were conspicuously Jewish looking ! More power to truth .
    Exposing the Holyhoax which these lying dogs hide behind is a priority.

    To other bits of egregeous hate propaganda that I have come across over the years was from a movie called : ‘Its a Mad Mad Mad Mad World’ , a treasure map/hunt comedy and there is a scene in it where a friendly older woman who is also on the hunt is blatantly vehemently repeatedly insulted by a young blade . Put on the screen to get women’s heckles up.
    Another similar piece was in the movie “Mozart’ where a rape scene is depicted after a battle outside a mansion , and it show the soldier cutting the woman’s jugular as he get up off the ground . Nasty bits of propaganda designed to drive a wedge between the sexes as the beginning of the Jewish onslaught in the 60′s .

    I am left to wonder if the Vietnam war was really created and promoted as a seeding foil for the 60′s fight against ‘injustice’ which was used to grow most of the current ideology form. Don’t be frightened to grasp big when dealing with Evil Puppet Masters.
    When you understand human nature then cause and effect are predictable and scale is not a prohibitor.

    The most effective known serial killer of all time was an English Medical Doctor named Harold Shipman, by all accounts a Jew. The good Doctor is suspected of murdering possibly well over 700 Middle aged and older Women and tampering with their financial affairs to make himself beneficiary. He was caught and charged with a few hundred murders and died in prison a few years later aged I think only in his late 50′s. Maybe Hymie decided to get rid of an embarrassment?

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for the Hollywood shysters to make a movie about this monster.

    I count my blessings that Mr. Brooks was not a Muslim Wall Street billionaire chasing and killing White women.

    However, a Wall Street Jew billionaire, Stephen Schwarzman, founder and CEO Blackstone Group says that taxing fatcats like him like ordinary Americans is like Nazi invasion of Poland during WW II. Stephen as a ‘practicing Jew’ celebrated his 60th birthday at the cost of $1 million which included some ‘half-naked’ White dancers watched by Henry Kissinger and other ‘patriotic Americans’…..

    MindHunter, the non-fiction book, was landmark.

    The two writers, presented in the introduction, appeared to be ‘buddies,’ and it’s not mentioned but Olshaker actually worked for Washington Media Group.

    MindHunter was supposedly the inside dope on Quantico. After that, came Silence of the Lambs, then the Deaver films, with strong casting. Then the books/films were emulated, the writers, trying to cash in on the trend, did the work in disseminating the overall meme— time after time, the repeater was put out… “The killer is a single white male, in his 30s or early 40s, he could be anyone, probably a genius, etc.” The paragraph was taken out of Mindhunter and repeated over and over.

    STrangely, it conflates with the meme of “Single Lone Gun Nut.” It doesn’t really matter whether the villian is a mass murderer or a serial killer, (which in reality are two different kinds of crime, motivated in very different ways.) The people seen on t.v. are sort of an amalgam of the two types.

    Meantime, the public has not heard of Coral Watts, despite chosing white victims, and maybe even doing in 90 of them. Or the Zebra Killings, where point systems were assigned to whites, the most points going for doing in children. Disturbing cases, indeed. But many of the “serial” killers that became household names really do not fit that bill, and had few victims, (if you look them up).

    @Shiva:

    They wanted not to merely dispossess Whites but rather to ELIMINATE Whites

    In Pat Buchanan’s latest book he pointed out that the Chinese offer factory jobs to females only of some western ethnic province – and the jobs are in another province. This is soft genocide.

    In the US, a similar tactic takes the form of affirmative action – white women are super-empowered (title 9, etc) and place in environments that are less than 10% white Christian male (harvard for example, and what % of those are gay?) during their primary years for meeting a social network and mate.

    This is not an accident. I don’t know if we’ll ever have a ‘smoking gun’ document with a plan to do it, but it comes rather naturally to a hostile elite who have nothing but contempt for nearly every aspect of our culture.

    I agree with every point in this essay. However, it should be noted that White men still play the leading heroes in the most high profile movies. There are exceptions, of course, but White men are still the norm. I’m sure this trend creates some very painful cognitive dissonance for Jews. They are trapped by their desire to demonize White men on the one hand and their desire to make money on the other. If Jews use too non-Whites in the leading roles, they know their films won’t make as much money.

    Dr. Macdonald states in his article that a key component has been Hollywood. The only thing I disagree with is I wouldn’t call it the “key” comonent, but the “driving force and this means television included.

    I perfectly agree with Connelly about the quality of Mr. Brooks as a stand alone film, yet marred by the tendentious quality of continually heaping slander on the white middle class.

    Not to undermine his thesis in general, I agree with Fender that American Psycho is a deeper sort of movie than your typical slam whitie. American Psycho is a satire of 80s superficial materialism. Bates “passes” to all those around him as a glossy corporate exec, while just under the surface he is a depraved serial murderer. The point is the cheapness of our culture. Take for example his soliquys on pop music. I found that hillarious.

    Also, I think Hannibal Lecter is supposed to be Jewish. FYI.

    Well, yes, “American culture has been subjected to a withering campaign of critique calling into question the value of traditional American — if not Western — culture. And as I have argued elsewhere, a key component of this campaign has been Hollywood film.”

    Why not just call it a campaign of defamation, and provide information how we can attackback against the writers, producers, and actors?

    Is analysis enough?

    The most important point in the essay:

    Incidentally, does anyone really believe that just because this war is currently waged primarily against White males that Whites as a whole will survive? To me, it has always seemed obvious that once White males are gone, White females are headed for extinction, too.

    The End Game is White genocide. They wanted not to merely dispossess Whites but rather to ELIMINATE Whites. A goal they are well on the road to achieving.

    An excellent analysis of the White women aspect was written by Lisa Turner nearly 20 years ago:

    Co-opting White Women

    Does anything look familiar to you about the following statement: “The social services agency of Anytown announced yesterday that it was expanding its services to include minorities, illegal aliens, the homeless, AIDS patients, gays and … women.”

    It should look sadly familiar. It’s typical of the sort of “news item” we, as White women, often encounter in our daily newspaper. Have you noticed how the mention of “women” is often tacked — invariably at the end — to a list of social misfits, non-Whites, losers, weirdos, and other assorted miscreants of society by liberal reporters as they write their liberal-slant stories in their leftist newspapers? What’s this phenomenon all about? Why are women always lumped in with this disgusting Rogues Gallery line-up of society’s losers and misfits?

    There’s a sociological term I learned in one of my college classes (taught by a typically leftist professor) called “co-optation.” That’s a fancy way of saying “included” or “taken over by” or “brought into” a particular group so that they can use you to their advantage. Webster’s dictionary defines “co-opt” as “to choose or elect as a fellow member or colleague.” The fact is — women have been “co-opted” by the corrupt Liberal Establishment in order to make a tenuous (and of course politically advantageous) link between women and “people of color” (or gays, druggies, and any other creep they happen to want to include in “THE LIST”). The media has “elected” women to be the “fellow members and colleagues” of an unsavory group which usually features law-breakers, homos, the “culturally diverse,” bums, and ill, dysfunctional individuals from every walk of life. Hmmmm, seems we woman have been “elected” by the media to be a member of certain groups without first taking OUR vote!

    It’s a variation on the media ploy of always uttering the phrase “Blacks and Jews” in the same breath. If you say it often enough, like a mantra, your brainwashed audience will (supposedly) begin to actually believe there’s a real-world bond of brotherhood between Blacks and Jews. Say it with me now: Blacks and Jews, Blacks and Jews, Blacks and Jews, Blacks and Jews, Blacks, and Jews. Now say: homosexuals, Blacks, Jews, illegal aliens, the homeless, the abused and … WOMEN.

    See how it works? If your “group” has been declared by the media to be part of the line-up, it must be because you have a mysterious elemental bond, something “in common with” the other folks on the list. Right?

    As Patrick Cleburne and yourself, have all suggested, the Bolshevik with the leather jacket in the basement of some HQ. Peter Brimelow hints at that with his references to GULAGS, from time to time.
    Does anyone doubt, for an instant, that genocidal hunger, does not dwell within the hearts of the people that shall dwell alone?

    There has been a deliberate effort since the mid-90′s to show ONLY Whites as evil, in both TV and Movies. The exellent TV show from the early 80′s Hill Street Blues is actually quite SHOCKING in that it shows minorities as CRIMINALS alot of the time. The ‘racist’ top cop swat guy was going to ‘freeze out’ some latino gang-bangers (who were just good kids and Furrillo adopted them to be put in a special school, but they STILL WENT BAD.) He said ‘ Frank, I’ll make them so cold you could put a popsicle stick up his nose and call him a fudgesicle. Hillarious, but you would never see this blatent type of stuff on TV or the movies now.

    A black pimp who the hot female public defender had to WALK OUT ON because he kept sayin: where is my hores, where is my hores? or something of that nature. He was pissed they werent working, while she had to defend him on pimpin charges.

    Etc. Hill Street Blues is availble FREE online if you search for it,
    The HOT babe that is always in the show went for an African ‘chief’ or something, and a few shows later, turns out he was a CANABLE. So sick misogination, but payback.
    St. Elsewhere also has a conservative racist guy in it, but the staff also complains here and there about minorities, again, early 80′s tv.

    The term TWA was used in the exellent ER, when a ‘TWA’ – Third World Assassin- apparently a term used by ‘white med students’???? to describe third world orgin doctors. This was in the late early 2000′s. This was after that Indian girl Dr. killed someone.

    Steve Sailer did a report and stats if someone wants to email him or look it up, on how like 90% of criminals in TV are white.
    The Jewish show NUMBER$ will sometimes show a minority criminal, but I stopped watching that a long time ago, because of the blatent : Im a superior jew, you are an ignorant white guy stuff that went on in it. Just too much.

    Anyways, Sailer later sort of recanted saying that he read or something, white people would not go to see shows with minorities as murderers. Totally untrue, I called him on that, no reply.
    Hill street blues, look it up, shocking, gives you a real culture shock.

    Some comments on American Psycho: check out the scene where Bateman gives a speech on how to improve the world:

    “Well, we have to end apartheid for one. And slow down the nuclear arms race, stop terrorism and world hunger. We have to provide food and shelter for the homeless, and oppose racial discrimination and promote civil rights, while also promoting equal rights for women. We have to encourage a return to traditional moral values. Most importantly, we have to promote general social concern and less materialism in young people.”

    Aside from the last two things that’s basically a white liberal litany. Also consider the characters in the film: rich, White yuppie liberals living in their fantasy world of pop music and modern art. The implication is that the east coast elite is rotten to its core and they don’t really believe in the nonsense they spout.

    True there are typical leftist components in the film: Bateman killing a black hobo and his dog, Bateman being a misogynist, Bateman being explicitly White, etc. Also remember that the author is gay and certainly no traditionalist…but even if the film was intended as a tirade against White America (I don’t think it was– I think it’s a tirade against cosmopolitan materialism) it reveals certain truths about the New York elite and the type of lifestyles they lead.
