Last month I wrote
that the problem with Quentin Tarantino's Django
Unchained was that the revenge film "seemed more like an attempt to be
inspirational" and to the extent social messages exists in it they "irresponsibly
exacerbate existing racial tensions." Fast forward a few weeks, and Southern
California was paralyzed by former cop Christopher Dorner and his revenge killings aimed at the "racist"
Los Angeles Police Department.
In Django Unchained,
Jamie Foxx--who later said it's "great" he gets to kill all the white people in
the movie--murders those who enslaved him as well as their families. Dorner, who
saw Django Unchained and complimented
it in his infamous manifesto, began his killing spree by executing the daughter
of a former LAPD captain, as well as her fiancé.
"I've never had the opportunity to have a family of my own,
I'm terminating yours," Dorner wrote. "Look your wives/husbands and surviving
children directly in the face and tell them the truth as to why your children
Dorner's writings also revealed he is a liberal, supports
Obama, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Piers Morgan, Chris Matthews, Tavis Smiley,
and so on.
Now, we learned from
the Left that Rush Limbaugh's and Sarah Palin's political opinions inspired the
Gabby Giffords shooting, making them responsible. That's even considering that
Loughner never listened to either pundit and his rantings have a left-wing
Can you imagine if a Tea Partier waged a campaign of
terrorism against a law enforcement agency, after writing a manifesto that praised
Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Palin, Michelle Bachmann, and Rand Paul? The Left would
attempt to put all of them out of business, if not behind bars, let alone what would happen to any of them that made an inspirational movie encouraging such acts.
Of course, it's silly to blame Piers Morgan and Chris
Matthews for what Dorner did. But that's the standard the Left created, as
stupid as it is. I would love to hear a committed liberal's thoughts about
this, but it's one of those things that's too inconvenient for them to discuss.
