“The Butler”: What Price Entertainment?
Even though I worked at various Hollywood Studios for over 25 years, I boycott movies. Why? Because I am a Christian patriot who loves her country and most of what we observe coming out of Hollywood, are immoral, anti-Christian or propaganda films and television shows under the guise of entertainment. Someone has to take a stand, and I decided long ago to quit enabling their efforts to promote their Progressive agendas.
I understand that’s a difficult choice for many of our readers, but ask yourself, “How much do I love my Judeo-Christian God and my country?”
Recently a Facebook friend was upset because she was determined to buy her coffee at Starbucks, even if it meant helping to promote the Progressive’s agenda, and she was taking a beating for it by Conservatives.
Yes, it’s true we are “free to be me” (at least for now), but consider how you are helping destroy our freedoms with your wallet signifying your approval of the smut, slim, disgust and propaganda that comes out of Hollywood. At the same time, I like to encourage people to support wholesome and positive messages in films and on television, albeit they are rare.
So, what about the new movie, The Butler?
From the trailer, it looks like a fantastic movie, but I will continue to resist the temptation because my God, my family and my country come first. No way will I support Hollywood’s Progressive agenda, and I am positive, based upon some of the cast involved (they do have creative input on the script), that regardless of the surface acceptability of this film, there will be, nonetheless, a subtle (or even a not so subtle) undercurrent of progressive indoctrination. This group just cannot help themselves!
Although I won’t see the film, I am writing this as a “review” of The Butler, to be released in theatres August 16. It stars Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, Mariah Carey, John Cusack, Jane Fonda, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Lenny Kravitz, James Marsden, David Oyelowo, Alex Pettyfer, Vanessa Redgrave, Alan Rickman, Liev Schreiber, Robin Williams, Yaya Alafia, Minka Kelly.
I have not heard of some of these actors/actresses (the political correct term is to now refer to them all as actors, which always represented the male talent), but two names smack me in the face: Oprah Winfrey and Jane Fonda.
Oprah Winfrey: A woman with tremendous influence and power, she was raised a Baptist in Mississippi, but got turned off to Christianity when her pastor quoted Exodus 20:4-5: “You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in Heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God,” because she said it didn’t “feel right” in her spirit. (So now we are the judges of God based upon our feelings? That’s a whole different subject, but here is a link to Bible study for that Scripture if you are interested.)
Oprah appears to be a Pantheist (one who believes that God is in all things). Pantheism is often associated with New Age religions and Hinduism. Basically, she is no longer a Baptist (although she professes to be a Christian) she is known to follow and promote the teachings and writings of New Ager and spiritualist, Eckhart Tolle. However, Tolle’s teachings are not compatible with Christianity.
If you see this movie, you are helping to fill Oprah’s coffers that she uses to promote Barack Hussein Obama’s agenda via political donations. Oprah is known for her generous contributions to charity work, and I acknowledge that.
Jane Fonda: Jane plays the part of Nancy Reagan in this film and is also known to many of us as Hanoi Jane. In fact, she has recently been seen wearing a t-shirt with “Hanoi Jane” emblazoned across the front. Why now? Why the divisiveness?
In a video promoting the film, Fonda says, “As an actor I approach her (Nancy Reagan) as a human being and I happen to know that she’s not unhappy that I’m playing her.”
Either way, Jane Fonda will be receiving a huge sum of money from those who support Progressive causes.
Will you be one to pay to see this movie, thus approving of this woman who aided and abetted the enemy during the Viet Nam war, and has never expressed remorse or apologized to our Viet Nam vets or to the families of our soldiers who were killed or will you resist the temptation? (You can read the transcript from her August 22, 1972 radio broadcast here.)
Like those of us who hear wonderful platitudes coming from the mouth of Barack Obama, we must not judge him, the Progressives or even ourselves by what is said but by what we do.
