“N-word” controversy kills Oscar buzz for new movie “The Green Book”

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

There are really two kinds of movies: Movies produced to entertain and make money, and movies produced for "Oscar Bait”.

Oscar bait movies almost always lose millions but allow the studio to virtue signal and push any agenda. The Green Book checks every progressive box and was a clear frontrunner in this year’s Academy Awards race.

Not because the movie was good, of course, but because the movie is about racist white people, a talented oppressed homosexual black man, and a dumb failed mobster who drives around learning how racist people are.

Who doesn't want to see that?!

Well, things were going good until co-star Viggo Mortensen was accused of racism after saying the n-word while talking about how racist the South was. That's right: Using the word to condemn those who used it to demean people also means somehow, someway, Viggo is also racist.

The left went wild and it looks like not only will The Green Book lose money, it also lost its chance to let the world know how woke Universal Studios is.

Here’s the thing – actual racists don’t care if you call them racist. Conservatives have stopped reacting to the race card because it has been way overplayed. That leaves leftists feeding on other leftists – like we’re seeing here. They made the game & now they get to play it – like it or not.

Why do we have to analyze everything to death? This was based on a true story and I can personally attest to the racism in the Southern States in 1962, as my brother and I hitch hiked from Toronto to Florida in October 1962, almost in the same time frame depicted in the movie. We were shocked at the “whites only” benches, drinking fountains and seating ares in restaurants. It was a time of black oppression and the movie reflects realistically the attitude we experienced so many years ago. I saw the movie and thoroughly enjoyed it, and would highly recommend it to everyone. I saw it as a tale of friendship and tolerance between 2 people who earned each other`s respect and remained friends until they passed away in 2013. We should have more of this in our lives, instead of the rancor and divisiveness so obvious on both sides of the border today.

If I would have played a retarded slave I would have won the Oscar…1995
If I would have played a repressed gay retarded slave who exposes the evil white man and creates safe spaces for other retarded gay slaves I would have won the Oscar…2018
If I would have played a retarded white slave I would have won the Oscar…2095

Hollywood is slipping….I would have thought that the talented ,oppressed,homosexual black man would have also been a quadriplegic narcissist with an oedipus complex who had a PHD in navel gazing…..
The dumb,failed mobster is essentially a sensitive,misunderstood but brilliant( reformed and born-again))Social Justice Warrior who goes the full distance and no longer will wear silk suits.He is obviously THE crux of this epic saga because……anyone can be oppressed,but to take a “button man” and make him John of Arc…well…art and social messaging just does not get any better than this…..
