Two Minute Hate Report: The Tim Burton Edition

Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is now in theaters but sadly is garnering a rather anemic 65% positive on Rotten Tomatoes.

As readers of the Dark Herald know, that kind of score normally means it's a Lefty sermon movie, that is subcompetent and is in need of being propped up by right thinking SJW film critics.

But not this time.

Tim Burton stepped in it this week with some truly dumb, shallow comments about diversity and representation in media. He was asked this because his new movie, Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, is an overwhelmingly Caucasian affair, with only one black role. Here's what Burton said:

"I remember back when I was a child watching ‘The Brady Bunch’ and they started to get all politically correct. Like, OK, let’s have an Asian child and a black. I used to get more offended by that than just… I grew up watching blaxploitation movies, right? And I said, that’s great. I didn’t go like, OK, there should be more white people in these movies.”

I don't have the energy or the interest to pick these words apart - they're just dopey - but I want to ask how he was allowed to say that.

My initial reaction was Holy Fuck retard. 

The first amendment is still on the books you know. There is a fairly major price tag for exercising free speech these days but the right to it still exists asshole!

But the scribbler goes on to elaborate that what Birthmoviesdeath.com is actually upset about is that Burton was not sent to SJW theological seminary before it's release.  Therefore he was sadly, indeed tragically ignorant of the proper prayers and invocations to our lord and savior of Inclusivity necessary to have a period accurate film.  IE.  One that is in a Victorian setting with just White people in it...Ya know like the Victorians actually had.

I want to figure out how, when releasing a movie as white as this one into theaters at this moment in time, did no one coach Burton on some talking points about diversity? I want to look at where the real failing is here, and I don't think it's in Tim Burton making a movie full of white people...

The words fat tatted out SWPL with Cheetos breath are now coming irresistibly to mind for some reason. 

...the bad guy is black and he's the only black guy in the whole thing. He's traveling the world invading the spaces of little white children and killing them. It's troubling imagery, and it's troubling that at no point in the process did anyone involved notice.

In Victorian penny dreadful tradition the evil and mysterious blackman was something of a staple. This is actually such an intriguingly brave idea for today that I now feel compelled to go watch this movie. Specifically to give the finger to the censoring Diversity Mutants that are now nipping at Tim Burton's heels like rats. I haven't liked all of his works.  Hell some of them are just plain bad but he is always at least willing to take risks. That is something you just don't see in Hollywood at all these days.

In no small part because twerp servants of the SJW hivemind like this hapless jackwagon will be trying to crawl up your asshole if you don't hit every check mark on their Little Red Quota Sheet.

In short birthmoviesdeath.com Fuck you. Fuck you and of course fuck you!!! I'm now going to see this movie on general principle.

Being mad at a Tim Burton movie for having a chalk-white cast is like being mad at a Michael Bay movie for having explosions.

At this point they have become quite used to getting their way.

And a big part of getting their way is denying reality in favor or their imaginary social constructs which now come with required Diversity and Inclusiveness quotas.

They got to have Captain America's Sad Girlfriend hooking up with a rich, good looking black genius of a doctor in 1947.

Give the SJWs a spoonful and they will immediately demand the whole freaking pot.

If I was Tim Burton I would have said something completely outrageous in the most possible exaggerated manner (so there is no way that anyone could claim it wasn't a joke), something like he's trying to ban people who's not white from movies and that he was trying to portrait black people as sinister and evil, yeah, you got me with my hands on the pot.

All that gesticulating and trying to look as mad as possible, then immediately after explain very calm to the person making the interview that only people with low IQ, or profoundly ignorant, uneducated, or brainwashed do not understand the set up of a movie in a victoran period, and then straight away say that he believes the interviewer is not like that and just being misinformed.

We need to fight this people,and the beat possible way is to make them look like the idiots they are.
