It's not the "Left" that hates Tolkien

It's the anti-Christian Prometheans at Amazon who are attempting to degrade Middle Earth and turn it into Westeros with elves. Sexy, naked, gay elves:

It is obvious the left has it in for Tolkien and his work. This could not stop a major company like Amazon from wanting to profit off Tolkien’s hugely popular Legendarium.  

While Amazon is looking for a cash cow series, it appears pop culture is trying to defile Tolkien’s work from within, and what better way to undermine Tolkien’s message than to reimagine his stories in secular terms? From their point of view, it makes perfect sense to recreate the Second Age into a sexual paganist series to succeed “Game of Thrones.” 

The left is already cheering on the beginnings of the presumed assassination of Tolkien’s legacy. The leftist “NY Magazine” ran a story this week headlined, “Give Us the Horny Lord of the Rings Show We Deserve.” “Are we sure that an overwhelmingly erotic Middle Earth experience is such a bad thing,” read the article. “Make the elves get a little freaky. Allow the hobbits their fun. Give a new meaning to the inscription on the West-door of the Mines of Moria: Speak, friend, and enter.”

Ideology politics are dead. Idea wars are reserved for homogeneous societies, not multiracial, multiethnic, multireligious, war zones.  The culture wars are intrinsically interidentity, and anyone who is still babbling about Left and Right, or Liberal and Conservative, is simply demonstrating the extent to which they fail to understand their own reality.

Social Justice is Satan's Justice.

At least Christopher Tolkien was spared from seeing his father's legacy spit on like this. The backlash that The Last Jedi caused is gonna be nothing compared to how angry fans will be once this show arrives. It's gonna be rough to see.

Netflix also has announced a Conan TV Show is in the works. Can't wait for Conan to be upstaged by stronk female character and then lectured upon his mansplaining(this has already happened in recent comics with him).

Nothing is safe from them; they want to defile any piece of fiction that dares to show unironic heroism. I won't be watching this; not even if it turns out to be good(highly doubtful). My blood pressure couldn't handle it. These past five years have cured me of my wish for movie adaptions of literary works I enjoy. Now I cringe whenever I see it happen.

This sort of Satanic inversion has been going on for a long time. Certainly since the turn of the 20th century, when American culture was relatively homogeneous.

E. Michael Jones I think referred to modernity as rationalized sexual misbehavior. I’d say that it’s all manner of misbehavior, not merely sexual. But sexual has the jump on the rest because sexual feelings are immediate and transporting. For some people, all-consuming.

When I heard about this I figured those who stand opposed (normal folk) would be painted as the true perverts. Because that’s one of the go-to responses. Shame us by the standards we hold which they do not share.

The article quoted above looks at least a little tongue-in-cheek to me. That’s another tactic. Be all pervy then say you were only joshing. Halfway.

Step 1. Buy up a beloved property with a built-in fanbase.

Step 2. Throw that fanbase away in an effort to attract a new, Woke fanbase.

Step 3. Call the original racist, sexist, homophobe, transphobe, Orcphobe when they reject the new Woke version.

Step 4. Find a another property.

Love Thy Neighbor. It means those in close proximity to you, which means, 99% of the time throughout all of human history, your own Tribe, your own People.

For Christ came to save the Nations. The individual, the very concept of an individual, makes no sense without the larger social group, the Tribe or Nation. There is no individual without the collective.

To hold more love and loyalty to the Other, to the Stranger and Foreigner, unto the detriment of your Neighbor is quite literally the opposite of Love, the opposite of Christ's commandment, and is therefore in the spirit of antichrist himself.

Many White women will bur in hell because of this betrayal of our Lord through the betrayal of their own people, their own Nation and Civilization. Many Judas-Christians and Churchians will be burning in hell for the same.

But sexing it up? Shit. I could see making Aragorn and Arwen romance more prominent, but no need to be raunchy.

This does not give Christopher Tolkien enough credit. He was not "spared this" - he had been actively fighting it for years. There's just nobody to fight anymore.

Not to sound like a black pill, but this "reimagining" will probably draw more fans than there are traditional fans turned off by it to fight against it. If they stick to just smut and don't make it an anti-Trump allegory in addition, it will probably do fairly well in terms of viewership.

"E. Michael Jones I think referred to modernity as rationalized sexual misbehavior. I’d say that it’s all manner of misbehavior, not merely sexual."

Oh, it is, but hedonism is front, center, and strong beyond all else. It's a strange metric, but using the Lord's name in vain shows that the speaker intuitively knows it's important and potent. No one in the USA has historically much cursed in the name of any other god. What, then, are we to make of such curses as "FFS"? Hedonism is dominant among the general populace.

When I was a teenager, I couldn't believe that something as pure as the Lord of the Rings had been made. It changed my whole thinking about architecture. I began to question why everything could not look as beautiful as the buildings in Lord of the Rings. Why we built glorified boxes. I knew then what a miracle these movies were.

It's the only series of movies I watch these days. We will never see anything like it again. Of course they want to destroy it. The media hates anything that casts the world in a struggle between good and evil.

@Stilicho- The Old Left was imperialistic and globalist in spirit if less honest about it in words. See the FDR administration for instance. (You can find them being honest about their globalist ambitions here and there, especially if they were True Commies.)

They lacked the Diversicrat part, though Jews especially and other “ethnics” as well were drawn to the movement. Supposedly oppressed racial minorities were leveraged by the more powerful, but it wasn’t a main strategy as it is today.

Stumbled onto Herve Ryssen's book (in pdf) on anti-semitism, and in just the first few pages he clearly and concisely explains the entire rationale for what the entertainment industry has done for almost a century. Explains the drive to sexualize the culture, open all borders, break down all families, nationalities, etc. I think Ryssen was imprisoned for about the 5th time just a few days or weeks ago for his writings. France seems over.

Be careful in your personal lives, folks. Weaponized sexual diseases are on the way, and they will have symptoms and case fatality rates worse than plague.

Which reminds me: In Sierra Leone in 1995, after 17,000 stupidass bumbling UN "peacekeepers" turned tail and ran, 150 Executive Outcomes SOFs took on 70,000 murdering rebels (who raped, tortured, and killed entire villages), and one of their tactics was to hire (and provide drugs to) prostitutes with full-blown AIDS to get friendly with the rebels. The effects lasted long after the UN pressured the government to end their contract with EO. search on executive outcomes pmc and you'll see Eeben Barlows' commanders, who at the time were some of the most respected and feared fighters on the planet. They were welcomed by people lining the roads and throwing flowers, in the Sierra Leone villages that were saved.

The whole of Western culture in the last 20 years can be summed up as thus: The fanfic writers have taken over, and are turning every established franchise into wretched, Tumblr-level fanfiction.

Look up the names of writers who lived 40-50 years ago and you'll see soldiers, scientists, and people who actually accomplished things in life. People with real life experience.

Look up the names of today's writers, and you'll see a long list of gender studies majors whose resumes consist of shit they posted on DeviantArt and social media. They're CalArts alumni wearing manbuns who were hired by other CalArts alumni wearing manbuns to make art that can only be enjoyed by CalArts alumni wearing manbuns.

"Satan's Justice Warriors", this term signifies that they have deserved zero compassion and 100 percent opposition by any means necessary.

@75 Diskworld went full woke (by the standards of his time) as soon as Pratchet decided that he can write something more than strings of gags.

It's too bad. He was a genuinely talented writer. He could write books which were both hilarious and emotionally powerful. That is no small feat. His selling this service to the devil is a tragedy.

When you watch the LotR extended edition cast interviews, you get a sense in which a leftist can appreciate Tolkien. They emphasize his love of nature and freedom without imposed order. If you're looking for it, you can also see a huge blind spot with most of the actors.

The original LOTR stories had Aragorn as a heroic figure who could only come into his birthright and achieve his desires through victory. The movies made him into a tormented figure, tempted to throw it all away and run off with Arwen.

It’s not surprising that the next rendition of the story would take the next step in tearing down Tolkien’s heroic statuary.

Bring on the wars

Depending on the writers a Tolkien show could be great. I don't care if they throw a few boobs in so long as it is true to the characters. I don't even mind some blackwashing if the actors are good.
