Samuel L. Jackson: From radical to rehab to riches — but he still hates Trump’s America

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

One of my favourite actors, Samuel L. Jackson, is also one of the highest grossing actors of all time, and one of the highest paid actors but… racism, right?

In an interview with Esquire, Samuel L. let it all fly, talking about growing up in segregated Chattanooga in the 1940’s, doing drugs, getting radicalized in college and preparing for what he believed was the inevitable race war, but then went on to become one of the most respected and recognized actors in America.

Shouldn’t that be a great American success story?

Well, no, because Leftism.

Apparently, he’s madder now at Trump and Republicans than he was living in the racist, segregated Jim Crow south. Apparently, he needs a history lesson.

And a reality check. Just wait until you hear what his biggest hang-up is and who this very wealthy man thinks should pay for it.

Forty percent of the people in Canada who identify as buddhists were born Jews.

Luke 22:36 Sell your cloak and buy a sword. I believe that was at the last supper and he was referring to uncertain times in the future. Come on now Glenn it don’t look good for a buddhist to be cherry picking verses from the Bible.

You know nothing about buddhism…I know more about the bible than you do….buddhists do not evangelize to make converts…they know that kharma will bring people home…they never encourage the awakened to turn away from the religion they were raised in.

“and the pharisee prayed within himself saying God I thank you that I am not like other men”

You are by no means the first Pharisee I have encountered who fancied himself to be a christian.

Nobody gets to write his own performance evaluation.

Did Jehoshua ben Josasaph say something different? Not in my recollection of the Christian scriptures. And I never considered Saul of Tarsus to be devine…so how could his letters to various churches and collegues be anything other than the mewlings of a man?

Charred Remins and Andy….I started boycotting and refusing to watch movies with actresses who spouted misandry back in the 1980s….after a while there was nothing left to watch. I found overstated martial arts prowess to be annoying too.

Sice the advent of of VHS and DVD and movie streaming I started just watching those movies for there entertainment and escape value. Boy I missed a lot of great movies. In fact I watched Kong Shull Island on NETFLIX just this week. Samuel L Jackson nailed the role of a man motivated only by hate perfectly.

I guess I’ve just grown indifferent to being despised….for things like being Anglophone in Quebec….for being male at MSVU….for being a “newfie” in Ontario…for being an egg head with a touch of Aspergers autism…for being a pretty boy…for being assumed to be gay…

Part of my daily devotions is to recite the Dammapada while walking the ruts in my driveway. To keep reminding myself that I not obliged to hate those who hate me.

“Oh see how he abused me…cherish such thoughts and suffering shall follow you just as the ruts that follow the wheel that follow the cart that follows the ox”

P.S…. I personally will never again watch a movie with Samuel L. Jackson in it again…

The point of all of this is that some “blacks” in North American society still get to be millionaires under the current system of opportunities – obviously! – but then come back to play the “race baiting” game at every opportunity… Unfortunately, too many of the black community take this for an excuse to NOT get out of the ghetto… And, as I’ve said numerous times before, the real “scam” are the number of black community leaders perpetuating this mindset rather than prompting their community to get up off their knees and prevail… So, once again, I raise the example of millions of people across Eastern Europe that were held in serf status for HUNDREDS of years by foreign nations, YET, after the First World War, got off their knees, grew their pride, revived their cultures, and formed viable and thriving cultures… Too many “race baiter” blacks like Jackson are anathema to that potential reality…. But hey, what do you care if YOU live in “closed gate” communities and get invited to the “right” parties?

Yeah…I sort of get your point….Samuel L Jackson is still an actor whom I respect….if in his personal life he acquired an animosity and contempt for white men…hey…maybe it was honestly acquired…and he is entitled to it…the worst I would ever wish on him in terms of Hollywood career would be the actor’s Hell of being “typecast”….wait a minute…isn’t THAT what happened?

In the November Senate race in Michigan ,blacks could have voted for John James , Iraq war veteran and successful businessman . Problem was he is a black conservative running as a Republican.
Instead they voted for an ugly old white woman Democrat,Debbie Stabanaugh .
Just one example of how blacks cannot break out of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society ,which doomed them into being slaves to welfare and food stamps.
Blacks need to be led to the promised land of conservatism and reject the party that has I’ll served them all these years.
Too bad Samuel L Jackson lives in the world of resentment rather than becoming enlightened.

I can’t stand that racist, entitled and ungrateful whiner, and the asshole couldn’t act his way out of a wet paper bag if his life depended on it.
He’s on video saying he hates white people. I’m one of those white people he hates.
He owes all his ‘success’ to his black skin because he’s basically a quota hire…
And THAT’S entertainment in Hollywood!

Where have been Pappy…

Somebody should wash Jackson’s mouth with soap give him American history lessons. What a disgrace this man is!
