Katie Hopkins: “No, Idris Elba — You cannot be James Bond”

Katie HopkinsShillman Fellow

No, Idris Elba. You cannot be James Bond. You will not be 007, no matter how many tweets you put out fishing for attention.

It’s not because you are a gentleman of colour.

It’s because James Bond isn’t.

Our imagination is a precious thing. The way we love these characters matters — as evidenced by the outrage when someone attempts to mess with them.

SONNY CROCKETT said “That Bond isn’t a real person.” Well Sonny Crockett isn’t a real person either, certainly not since Don Johnson was playing the character in the TV show Miami Vice. So it would appear that this Sonny is living in a fantasy world all day long, thinking he is somebody that doesn’t really exist. Hurry home Sonny before you turn back into a pumpkin.

James Bond is based on Ian Flemming’s actual experiences as a British agent. So, he isn’t totally fictional. Watch the movie “Spymaker” Spymaker: The Secret Life of Ian Fleming – IMDb

Sonny, It is an equally interesting theory that people who would rather theatre closer to reality than Japanese Kabuki or classical Greek where the performers hold a mask(personae) in front of their face must be racist….politically correct theatre is as absurd as Kabuki or Greek personae style….and even Bertolt Brecht would be rolling over in his grave over what theatre of the left has become….

“can analysis be worthwhile
is the theatre really dead”….Simon and Garfunkle

And on top of all that I would make the ultimate “black panther” for the sequel that’s coming up .!!

A Black playing the part of James Bond is nothing more than the infiltration of blacks into our minds, in positions of total leadership.

The Jabberwok awakens.

The only James Bond beside Sean Connery is Daniel Craig. The rest of them were weak sauce compared to Craig

How about Brad Pitt to play Martin Luther King

He got to play Roland Duchesne….I am willing to bet that NOBODY who read Stephen King’s Dark Tower series ever imagined that Roland was black. There were lots of black characters in the series but that was not left a mystery to the readers. Anson Mount, Christian Bale and Javier Bardem were all passed over for the role. I would have picked Ben Foster.
