Netflix Cancels Critical Race Theorist Hustler Ibram X. Kendi's "How to be an Antiracist Baby" Cartoon Show
Oh, and Also: Batman's Gay Now

Before getting to that: When is Discovery/Warner going to cancel DC Comics?

DC Comics is dying. Its one gimmick is to announce a new character is Suddenly Gay every week.

The one character you'd've thought they'd have never made Suddenly Gay is Batman, the only character they have who reliably sells merchandise and comics and movie tickets.

Well, you'd've thought that.

But you'd've thought that wrong.

Because everyone is now gay in the DC Comics Universe.

Including, now: Bruce Wayne/Batman himself.

brucewayneisbisexyal.jpg

Not content to make Robin gay, Superman gay, Alfred gay (in a different chronology), Poison Ivy gay, Harley Quinn gay, Starfire gay, Vixen gay, etc., etc., etc., DC has just gone full LGBT YOLO! and had a young Bruce Wayne, while going "around the world" getting "instruction" in the various "skills" he needs to "beat up men" in the "night," leaning in for a smooch with a hot Latin guy who's "training him."

Now I know what you're thinking: Surely this is just another Wishful Thinking bit of nonsense from Clickbait bloggers. Surely DC wouldn't make Bruce Wayne gay.

Well... I don't think it's clickbait. It's open to interpretation, but I definitely believe DC intends this as the interpretation.

And they released these panels as a teaser to sell the upcoming comic. They knew people would talk about these panels. They intended it.

So you tell me.

Is this suggesting that Bruce Wayne is bisexual? I mean, look at them here. And the dialogue -- from a woman, no less.

"Gentleman -- am I... interrupting anything?"

bisexualbatman.jpg

And the eyelashes. They have eyelashes like Disney Princesses.

The only word I can use to describe these two smoldering joyboys' Lash Game is: fierce.

So there you go. Batman is now gay too.

That's not an alternate chronology or an Elsewhere. That's flashback in the main universe's Bruce Wayne's history.

Anyone left? Is Killer Croc safe or are we going to find out that he holds Raves down in the sewer?

On to Netflix, which is actually attempting an emergency readjustment.

When your stock price falls 30% and you're slated to lose two million subscribers, you take a look at the Virtue Signaling racist crap you're spending money on and you say, "Nah."

Among those pricey shows ordered in the Era of Plenty? A cartoon based on noxious racist Ibram X. Kendi's "book" about how to... how to lecture white babies about their White Privilege and status as oppressors.


Netflix has pulled the plug on several animated projects, including "Wings of Fire," from executive producer Ava DuVernay; "Antiracist Baby," a series aimed at preschoolers; and "With Kind Regards From Kindergarten," a film tailored to youngsters.

The streaming service also scrapped "Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You," a documentary intended to serve as a companion piece to "Stamped From the Beginning, which is a hybrid documentary and scripted feature that delves into race in the United States. "Stamped From the Beginning" is still moving forward and is currently in post-production.

If I had to guess: "Stamped From the Beginning" is a much, much cheaper show. Not only is it live action, which is already cheaper than animation, but it's also a mix of talking-head documentary, which is very very cheap, with some light "scripted" parts which will just be vignettes.

My guess? They decided they couldn't cancel all of the Ibram Kendi nonsense without being called "racisty racists who racist" so they said, "What's the cheapest piece of shit we have from this idiot that can keep in production?"


Sources at Netflix stress the decisions not to move forward with these projects were creative rather than cost related, meaning they would have taken place regardless of the company's slower revenue growth.

That's kind of even more of a knock, isn't it? That's like telling a girl you're breaking up with, "It's not that we want different things in life, it's just that I don't find you attractive or likable."

...

"Antiracist Baby," based on antiracist scholar Dr. Ibram X. Kendi children's book of the same name, was imagined as a series of animated vignettes set to music for preschoolers.

It was "imagined"? Really? Because I don't see much imagination there. "We'll run some cartoons with music, and it'll be for little kids!"

Wow, what a pitch! Will the cartoons have bright colors, too?


Kendi also wrote "Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You," which will no longer run in tandem with the adult-skewed "Stamped From the Beginning." Those three projects were being made to examine racism for audiences of all ages.

Just cradle to grave, racism, racism, racism.

Netflix will continue funding stuff that people might actually like to see, like a Jurassic World and Kung Fu Panda cartoon. Which I assume will not be entirely about White Supremacy and Systematic Oppression (for preschoolers!).

I'm glad that Ava DuVernay is getting her heavily-gilded wings clipped: Ava DuVernay, a woman who had one hit, which was itself overpromoted, and has been given one deal after another, almost all of which have failed. She runs the "non-profit" ARRAY company, which specializes in placing "diverse" people in roles and staffing positions, and collects a lot of money for various projects. And while it's a "non-profit," the principles in a "non-profit" don't "work" for free!

She's really riding this George Floyd Guilt Train to undeserved wealth.

Discovery/Warner just cancelled "Naomi" on the CW, which DuVernay was producing, after just half a season. Naomi is one of DC's new, terrible heroes, who is basically just a Superman ripoff character, except, plot-twist, she's a black teenaged girl.

Superman is a bad character to ripoff. His powers are not all that interesting -- they were original 65 years ago, but now people just take them as the jokey, "generic" superhero powers.

They're also too strong, which makes him very hard to write for.

So why create an overpowered Superman clone?

For a simple reason: Because the virtue signalers at DC, and Naomi's creator, the white liberal Brian Michael Bendis, have one other trick, besides turning characters gay, and that is inventing derivative characters who are race and gender swapped versions of iconic legacy characters.

And they wanted to be able to say "the strongest and most powerful character in the DC Universe is not Superman, it is a teenaged black girl named Naomi."

Which is what they did began claiming.

In a stunning new display of her powers, Naomi just proved she's the current Justice League's strongest hero, as she just unleashed abilities she didn't even know she even had. In Justice League #74 by DC Comics, Nabu instructs Naomi that she can manipulate magic, putting her in a class all of her own among her fellow heroes on the superteam. She uses her newfound powers to take down one of the most terrifying threats in the DC Universe.

And no one cared. Because no one who's not 1, between 8 and 11 years old and 2, currently in a geek argument about superhero power levels has any interest at all in "who's the most powerful" superhero.

Hey, remember when Marvel decided that all it would take to make Captain Marvel super-popular was to make her the absolute strongest and most stunningest and bravest character ever?

So DC, which is even stupider than Marvel because they do all the same shit as Marvel after Marvel does it, and after they see Marvel fail while doing it, also decided to make Naomi super-popular by just saying she was the most powerful character ever, stronger than Superman and full of super-powerful magic that she didn't even know about too, just so they could say, "Our strongest hero is a black teenaged girl."

So they made a nothing character last year and gave her Superman's powers -- plus all of Shazam's powers -- but none either character's legacy, history, or historical impact.

Which is important stuff.

And then they rushed out a show for her, which promptly failed, because... who the hell is Naomi? Who cares?

They made her up last week. Here, I just made up a character. His name is Robert and he's Super-Gay and he can shoot Fabbo-Rays out of his eyes with the searing power of a billion pink suns. He's a Triple Omega Level Mutant and he can kill all of the DC Universe without even trying and also that's his thing, he doesn't even try. He gives no effs on a Cosmic Scale.

Also, he likes chai.

I can see a real "Will they/won't they" thing with Batman, seeing that they're both gay.

Give me a show on the CW. I'd like him to be a major player the next Justice League movie. I'm very proud to have created this diverse and exciting character that will bring needed Representation to the DC Universe.

Can we get some of these Netflix executives and put them in charge of the DC portfolio?

100 Riddle me this Batman:

Well groomed and wealthy,
Hangs out with young boys,
Folsom Street's the answer to:
"Where does he get those amazing toys"

3 People aren't going to care about streaming services they had to cancel in order to afford food.

I also see that those small businesses that the government couldn't destroy with the wuhan flu are going to be done in by $10 gas and 50% more expensive groceries. Nobody will be going to restaurants, bars, or shops.

Maybe fuel will get so expensive, that we'll need mail in voting in the fall.

4 CW didn't just cancel Naomi. Now that they are looking to sell, the only supers they brought back for the fall season were The Flash (which will be ending soon) and Superman and Lois, with Stargirl still undecided on (b/c it airs in summer). The 3 least woke shows (not saying they aren't woke, too, but they are nothing compared to the others)...

22 Superman, as much as I love him, is a boring superhero in traditional story sense. He works best when you go into the messianic stuff or give him a villain on his scale (which is hard to do. Even 20 years ago, Superman had god-like power.)

Batman has more interest, because like Rorschach, he can be hurt. There is that sense of danger to/for him.

One of the big tells with the Woke idiots is that they keep making Superman like characters and then wondering why no one gives a shit. It is not just the horrible writing, but if your character is invulnerable, it causes issues. It was one of the things with the gay superman, his boy lover was also invulnerable- so you cannot even put the characters loved ones in danger. How in the fuck do you generate story tension with this set up, you morons?

27 funny thing In the imaginary world the LEFT has to make women the most powerful and all the men are gay simps.

In the real world we all live in, the LEFT needs transgender men(pretend women) to crush real women in all sporting events. Its vitally important that they do this, even supporting transgender men raping actual women, and shaming actual women that don't want to have sex with transgender men.

36 Remember, they canceled the Bright 2 movie a few months back, too, before the earnings report about the lost subscribers and prediction of more.

I think they've been predicting this for a little bit, cutting back on things here and there. Bright 2 was probably going to be really expensive (I imagine pre-production costs were already in the tens of millions), and now it's time to just go at the dead weight with a wrecking ball.

I have noticed that Cuphead hasn't been cancelled yet, though. So, that's nice.

89 Look, people, I have a bunch of genres of weird shit I like but I'm going to be honest:

The Western superhero crap is so perfectly suited to being morally corrosive that I can't help but wonder whether it was intentional rather than just a product of misguided (and later, insulated) creators.

Look at human history - both actual history of human cultures, and the didactic myths and stories those cultures authored. It's all well and good to be concerned about the corrupting influence of power or to see the judicious use of mercy as a tool in the toolbox... but with the Western comic book superhero we're reduced to sniveling, navel-gazing moral cowardice. Like Trudeau-esque "if you kill your enemies, they win" level crap.

It's disgusting. And people excuse it for reasons of nostalgia - and because they don't yet see what this is doing.

For this to happen, not only will gays have to convince themselves that statutory rape is still rape when between two males, they’ll have to convince the white left of this, too. Which will be more difficult, because the left believes that all of their constituents are inferior or criminal, and usually both.

It's selective.

If you don't like your peasants, you get yourselves some new peasants. There are billions of third world dirt farmers who'd be happy to sign up as a new peasant class here.

Extreme wealth is a positional good; it's value is partly determined by who and how many elses have it, not how much they have OF it. It's a tool, and once you've obtained the requisite amount of power using it - which was the entire point - getting more of it isn't a concern.

150 The one character you'd've thought they'd have never made Suddenly Gay is Batman, the only character they have who reliably sells merchandise and comics and movie tickets.

Heh. This hits close to home. Follow me on this, or just skip past. Either way.

My old man, Boomer to the Nth degree, is all in a knot about NLI and college football. Because, and I quote, "It'll ruin the last thing I love on television". He wants NLI - kids getting to sell their own services - stopped because he just needs his Saturday in the fall programming.

Let 'em kill Batman. Let 'em draw him sucking a dick. Part of existing in this screwed up time is quite liberating for me. Because they can't kill a brand or institution that I can't live without. I don't exist - day to day - with brand identity as my hill to die on. The more they kill, the more I don't need. It's like picking weight out of a pack on my back.

But that's a tough sell for Boomers. Picking the brand is a big deal for that bunch.

Well there is, and has honestly always been, a pretty solid market for that among women. That helps keep some of this afloat.

One of the reasons the progs are so hostile to tamping down public displays is because historically that's been a very effective solution to helping everyone actually mind their own fucking business and get along. See: Victorian freakyness juxtaposed with everyone keeping a public lid on it. They left doesn't want people to get along, they want to destroy shit for their own benefit.

That's published criticism or revisionism. Festung Zod is filled with books that were published--and cannot be altered--that address the human condition. Homosexuality is incidental.

225 What's despicable about Pelosi is that she stays in the Church. The Church is pro-life. She's pro-abortion. The Church calls homosexuality and trannyism sins. Nancy thinks they should be celebrated.
I have friends, even a couple family members, who share her beliefs, and felt strongly about them, SO THEY LEFT THE CHURCH. Why is she staying around? Does she think she's going to straighten out the Catholic Church? Hit the road, lady. As a Catholic, I'm obviously not a fan of Martin Luther, but the guy had the decency to leave.

226 If anyone is wondering why any of this matters, really try and check out a handful of videos by RJ at The Fourth Age channel on youtube.

He's been pumping out philosophically-based (in both senses ) vids for a few years describing why this is happening, and why it's so damaging in terms of Western civ and culture. It's not just dumb, juvenile frippery; it's part of the Left's attempt to erase beauty, truth, and reason.

This led congressional hearings on the comics business; in defense, publishers created the Comics Code, which governed comic books into the 80s. Of course, one can claim that Wertham, good Viennese psychiatrist that he was, saw everything in terms of sex; but in a sense, DC is simply making Wertham right retroactively.

Yes. But that’s work, so you won’t. When done well this can make an amazing story. Moore is a master of it. But story is not the point for the person you’re satirizing, and work is even less of a point.

Take a look at Moore’s Promethea. That’s something that could easily be latched onto by the left and turned into a very successful product if they believed what they were saying about lack of representation. They don’t. They’re ellipsis’s toy stealers. It not only isn’t enough that there be representation alongside traditional works, that’s not even the point.

An incident in Luther's life makes me think of today's DC. As a young man, Luther was having a crisis of faith, and he decided to make a pilgramage to Rome to see the heart of Christendom and have his faith renewed. He later wrote that what he found shocked him; the grossest immorality of all kinds among the clergy there, which got worse the higher up the position. Also, the clergy in Rome openly laughed about not actually believing any of the stuff they sold to all of the stupid peasants out in hinterlands. Luther said it was this incident, more than any other single one, that drove him to break away.

Archie is Samoan
Betty's actress is a bisexual reiki nut...though she is blonde and Caucasian
Veronica is now hispanic and a Mary Sue
Jughead isn't black, but his actor is a BLM foot licker

303 DC is being torn up and rebuilt by the newly purchased part of Warner Brothers and the main people resonsible for this fatberg of diversity trash are being turfed out. Sadly, they're keeping Snyder in charge of the movies, which is a hilarious mistake, but the comic book side, everyone is being changed. Especially Jim Lee, who is an amazing artist but a really terrible CEO.

NoVa priests are, too...maybe it's Benedict's leftover influence (and Francis continuing it on the life issue) or Trump showing up at the March for Life, but priests have gotten way braver in the last few years about actually telling their congregations that yes, abortion, aka the murder of 100% innocent life, is the biggest evil in the world...

315 Some parishes that are near break-even in operations will have some difficulties with the lower contributions. Churches will see an uptick in vandalism. Some pastors will beg the archbishop to drop it.

First parish that lightens up a little bit on the dress code, and starts encouraging and embracing rough men bringing broken families on the weekends and hanging around through the week with a baseball bat will make up that difference in contributions. That parish will thrive.

One thing I am seeing - and I'm certain of this - the blind faith in ideology is dying. Gen X never accepted it, but we just stick to ourselves anyway. Millenials are getting older, and they're hungry for something other that this empty existence. Gen Z wants to fight, and they want to be led.

There is an opportunity here for religion to make a comeback. But it won't be the New England WASPy flavor.

An incident in Luther's life makes me think of today's DC. As a young man, Luther was having a crisis of faith, and he decided to make a pilgramage to Rome to see the heart of Christendom and have his faith renewed. He later wrote that what he found shocked him; the grossest immorality of all kinds among the clergy there, which got worse the higher up the position. Also, the clergy in Rome openly laughed about not actually believing any of the stuff they sold to all of the stupid peasants out in hinterlands. Luther said it was this incident, more than any other single one, that drove him to break away.

324 Looking at the sidebar about snl and men. There's this piece of crap billboard I have to pass on the way to work, I don't know what it's trying to sell or care, making fun of "dad dancing" showing some spastic freak in tight girl jeans, arms and legs splayed out. If this dad is striking that pose it is because my crotch has caught on fire and I'm getting it to a fire retardant. Or I'm out of cover and avoiding enemy fire, a serpentine pattern will follow.

FU billboard people. A hate the sign a lot. A say FU every time I drive by. I feel a little better then. Not great, but better.
