The movie is really not original, it is based on an ancient Greek play called Lysistrata who organized a sex boycott against their husbands if they didn't stop fighting and killing each other. This time instead of Greek's and Trojan's its Chicago Street gangs. South side street gangs. And throughout the movie is a message that guns are to blame for gangs and violence in Chicago. Not urban culture, YO! Not welfare, not men having bastard kids with women who they leave behind and who the ho's can't take care of because they dropped out of high school to raise other bastards from other men they've whored with. Not because skyrocketing taxes government regulations and an unbelievably corrupt government on local and state levels, the most corrupt in the country after DC I might and its certainly not because of a violent urban entertainment culture seething with fornication, murder blood and mayhem. Its all the fault of white people and their guns.
This has to mark a low point in Spike Lee's creative mind. And I mean low. The premise that women who organize and sex boycott can somehow make this kind of change. It's ridiculous and its unrealistic. As One man even put it, "what else about them do they love?" Of all the classic story foundations Spike Lee could have laid it upon like Shakespeare or Chaucer for instance he had to go to Lysistrata. In Real life these gang bang hoodlums would have just found some other shawty to pop. YO!
Oh and let's not forget. You ban guns in Chicago they'll find other ways to kill like knives explosives ETC. But they'll always be guns.
The only other movie that reeked was The Confederate States of America, a historically inaccurate and unhistorical portrayal of an alternate universe where the south won the civil war. It was like The eternal Jew but directed against southern people and their culture, wrongfully portraying all southerners as racist slave owners when in fact many in the south including General Robert E Lee opposed slavery. Even claiming that the South would conquer the entire north and force slavery on them when in truth they merely wanted to be independent and retain states rights. Even those who opposed slavery would prefer finding an alternative. In fact the south never had the resources to conquer the Union and the north was as much ant-slave as they were pro and it would not have lasted.
Growing up as a youth I remember Spike Lee's earlier movies including those that deal with growing up in the hood like Do the Right thing, Clockers and Crookland which show the consequences of living a fast life. As the good book says in Romans 6:23 the wages of sin is Death. There was once a time in this country when people knew this and the life of a criminal was a last resort for people who had no virtue. There was no excuses. You had a bad day pick your self up clean up, get a job, make an honest living stay in school get educated go to college join the military don't think fast money selling drugs or killing people will help you.
By long before these movies came out virtue was gone. The nineteen sixties washed away Christianity, family and personal responsibility.
The Communist Madelyn Murray O'hair had outlawed prayer in our public school system. The ten Commandments and Bible would soon follow. Abstinence and faithfulness were replaced by the sexual revolution and falsely so called free love. And as for responsibility, then California Governor Ronald Reagan put it your parents take care of you before you're 18 the government takes care of you at 60 you only got 42 lousy years to look after yourself. But that would also change with the LBJ administration's so called Great society AKA Grate society which discouraged people to work and look after themselves and go on food stamps. Today there are hundreds of lousy stinking programs that ensure you don't work but are taken care of.
The government funds you a few hundred dollars of Government assistance or SSI or both you sleep and eat in a rescue mission or in a housing project and you spend the free time you have either hanging out at the library surfing porn and hentai or sleeping in a doorway drinking liquour and listening to rap noise.
The movie isn't about love or romance or respecting one another or anything like that. Its about blaming guns, blaming the NRA and blaming white people who own guns for causing this mess. The message that we should all be unarmed sheep at the mercy of the state as the solution is presented time and time again including a scene where they seize a pile of guns. A scene reminiscent of gun buy back programs and scenes of totalitarian gun seizures in other countries. Just give up your guns your rights and liberty and worship Obama and the state will take care of you and you'll be fine is the message made.
And it would do no justice to shed light on the culture and politics of Chicago and the state of Illinois. Both the city and the state are the most corrupt and wicked in the nation. Despite being majority republican with the Dems mainly in the Chicago Lincoln and Peoria area, the Democrats control the state. The results are catastrophic to say the least...
Illinois and its city of Chicago have been rated time and time again the most corrupt state and city in the nation. The District of Columbia is its only rival. The state is one of the worst states for civil liberties and human rights. The Chicago Police department practices torture regularly and video taping police is discouraged. The cook county AG is Anita Alvarez a liberal Democrat. Not only has she called for banning the second amendment she wants to ban the first and fifth amendment as well supporting officers using torture and intimidation to extract false confessions and even attempting to have a man sentenced to 75 years in prison for video taping police officers practicing illegal acts and violating their oath of office. More of CPD later
The state is one of the worst for disability rights. Last in the nation for integrating the disabled. When disability rights groups attempted to shut down a notoriously abusive and filthy Care home lockup for adults the unions and the Democrats sided with the institution. It took disability advocates performing civil disobedience and being arrested to break it up. Even the SEIU one of the most violent corrupt unions in the country objected to the institution. Although this was largely because they were opposed to the unions that supported the hospital and because their employees were mostly into community care.
Illinois is also among the worst for guardian abuse with Madison County Illinois leading the fray. Veterans and politicals are considered primary targets of guardians and payees who abuse with not one ounce of accountability.
In addition taxes and government planning of the economy is the most notorious. Business is discouraged time and time again in Illinois with taxes and the minimum wage going up and up
Those are the foundations of Chicago's problem's not to mention other cities and towns in America. But Chiraq, Killidelphia, the city of fallen angels, crooklyn, Dieami, ATL, Killwaukee Killiapolis ETC according to Spike Lee and the producers of this latest hollywood woe are not to blame. Instead its all the fault of the NRA, the constitution and white people. Black lives matter, no one elses.
The only other thing of note to review is the reaction of Democrats, particularly those in Chiraq. The city mayor Rahm Emmanuel (D) at the behest of his communist bloc threatened to withhold tax credits from the movie. The reason, because Chicago residents were offended by the title Chi-raq. YES FOLKS! Chicago's Democrats don't care about the massive loss of life and freedom from crime in the south side, they're just pissed that some black guy is writing a movie with the title Chi-raq! Well too bad Liberals! You're government failed! So has socialism! AGAIN!
Democrats have been furious over the content as well primarily scenes of emergency rooms in Chicago of shooting victims. This shows yet again the lack of responsibility Democrats have and shows how irresponsible government it. Chiraq offends Chicago residents only because it exposes that they have failed primarily in trusting the government. This is one mess Rahm Emmanuel and Chicago's stupid liberal elite cannot hide. The blood is already blown the lid off another failure of Democrats and secular liberal society.
I think I wish to mention one final problem: The Chicago Police department. The CPD from the beginning have been opposed to personal liberties like owning firearms not because of public safety but because the CPD are themselves like many other police departments as much scum and criminals as the people we expect them to rustle and toss in the slammer. While innocent children are killed in the crossfire of gang warfare, while murder, rape, robbery and vandalism creep across cook county landscape, CPD uses its resources (paid for by we the Sheep) to victimize people who are innocent until proven guilty otherwise over trivial offenses and uses torture to make false confessions for crimes they either are too stupid to solve or too lazy to want to solve.
CPD has been found time and time again in violation of the constitution and human rights. And many of them are even in league with the gangs taken bribes and helping them avoid arrest just like in the days of Al Capone. CPD are at heart cowards, imbeciles and a shining example of why not to trust government. They are too scared, too stupid or too complacent to care about the poor in South Side and will do nothing to break up the gangs and restore order to the housing projects of South side which are nothing but armed camps.
There are only two reasons to be disappointed in the film. Because it shows how terrible Chicago has become thanks to its apathy and acceptance of corruption and crime and the other because the movie advocates the same old solutions that have failed like gun control and blaming whitey.
Again this really isn't a movie review. Were not looking at the plot but were looking at the foundations of the plot, a futile worldview of secular materialism, societal collectivization and a denial of the problems behind the problems. By Society and government. The problem is a lack of responsibility, morality and godliness.
So what is the solution? Easy, first, stay in school, get a job, work dilligently, go to college, learn a trade marry have children. Second, don't live in areas of the country run by Democrats they hate honesty and they hate work. Thirdly, respect yourself, respect, authority, respect each other. Lastly but not least. Don't have sex out of wedlock and don't have illegitimate children you can't raise. Get married first.
Then again for those who grow up in a single parent home without a male role model, forced to go to a school run by the government that doesn't care that teaches nothing and live in a city or society that disdains working and disdains America the solutions are hard to achieve. Its what the Democrats want. Its what the people who support the message behind Chi-raq want to perpetuate.
Political solution's to Chiraq are also hard to come by. First, privatize the government. Fire it. It does not good and never will. Privatize the police and have the Department of Justice launch an investigation into false crimes and confessions by the Communist CPD with help from private investigators and journalists from all around the world.
Third, end gun control and bring back the death penalty especially for corrupt politicians and cops. Let every honest man in Chicago (the few there are) Carry a gun. When Criminals know that law abiding men and women are armed they will back down and crime will eventually go down especially when faced with old sparky. As for South side, its unlikely that the people can do it themselves since they don't have the experience so it will be up to the national guard. Using Iraq war vets scour the South side of hoods and round up the gang's leaders and the cities worst gang members and politicians and have them publicly and brutally put them to death and leave their carcasses up for all to see.
If there is anything that can be taken away from this movie that is positive then perhaps Spike Lee can be credited again. The wages of sin is Death. If you choose to kill someone to make money, you will either go to prison or you will be killed either by another gang or by the state. If you choose to not get an education study hard and hit the books and find some other way chances are you will find yourself poor with no prospects. If you choose to not get a job and expect a handout from the government then what happens in the movie to some of the people will probably happen to you... Prison, or death.
conclusionOnce Again this probably shouldn't be considered a review of the movie but of the foundations of a movie designed to hide social and economic problems created by the Democrats and to blame this all on people of another race and people who want to be safe.
RESPONSES FROM HOODRATS AND LIBERAL CRY BABIES!
Last week as you know I did a movie review on Chi-raq by Spike Lee. It really in truth was not a movie review it was really a political review of the movie's underlying themes. The theme that Chicago's crime problem is not really the fault of urban hip-hop culture and gun control or that you have men having sex with random women including having unwanted children who grow up without male role models and become criminals or the lack of morality. Neither any mention of black nationalism or welfare and laziness.
Instead the movie blames Chicago's crime problems on guns and white people mainly southern whites. One of my employees went to see it with his son mainly because his son was doing a school report on Lysistrada which the movie is loosely based on and also to show his son what happens to people who don't finish school and expect the government to take care of them. A commentator who is a black conservative made a similar comment on the article that he showed his children what happens when they embrace the liberal worldview.
What was most interesting is the emails and comments I received. I couldn't publish all of them because they were filled with racial slurs and swearing. Also many of them didn't get that i was only doing a political review not a real movie review. I didn't see the movie and it hadn't come out yet but looking at the trailer and reading summaries of the movie you could already get a sense of what it was about and what agenda it was pushing.
And now that people I know have seen it and reported it to me I can see that not only was I pretty accurate, I missed a few details. Many thanks BTW to people for sharing the message.
I have no intention of seeing this trite. I will not spend any of my money to promote Spike Lee's communist agendas and I would rather save my money on the star wars film instead.
An excellent movie review of Chi-raq can be found on movieguide.org which you can read clicking here and I loved it. The content of the movie is laid out and I want to paste it here so have a look...
Very strong Romantic, politically correct, pro gun control, Anti-Southern, anti-police, and even anti-white worldview overall with some solid, overt Christian and moral pro-faith elements/arguments (including a positive clergyman figure plays a large role in his community, extensive funeral scene takes place in a church, two scenes include gospel songs, multiple references to God and Jesus, Satan is referenced, prayer is mentioned in multiple scenes, a woman prominently wears a cross necklace, Heaven is mentioned, and there’s a plea to confess one’s sins and surrender to authorities), but some very strong pagan, immoral behavior includes some Christian, biblical morals/values are ignored in favor of immorality, a couple scenes contain brief homosexual innuendo including a woman calls herself a “dyke,” the Black Lives Matter movement takes a prominent role and certain groups of the population (whites, southerners, conservatives, politicians) are stereotyped as being politically incorrect or racist in multiple scenes, law enforcement and government are accused of exercising a “legal form of lynching” in their treatment of black people, government is demonized as not caring about “thugs,” a black conservative is accused of being a “Ben Carson sellout”, Americans who are pro-gun are demonized as warmongers, southerners are accused of having “evil in their blood,” the Red White and Blue insurance company is accused of greedily taking advantage of the high death rate on the south side of Chicago, final scene promotes gun confiscation/surrender to the government, several scenes involve anti-police rhetoric, private corporations sign a treaty with the “hood” to “guarantee” jobs to unemployed people regardless of merit in an effort to stop gun violence; at least 120 obscenities and profanities, multiple slang terms used on numerous occasions for male and female genitalia, multiple offensive slang terms used for women on numerous occasions, a slang term is used for a woman’s breasts, the term “pissing” is used; two rap songs include descriptions of shootings and death, gunshots are used as sound effects in multiple scenes and rap songs, one scene has a man shooting guns at the camera, multiple people are shot at a rap concert, the aftermath of a drive-by shooting is depicted, a dead girl is shown covered by a blood-stained sheet, a house is set on fire followed by an exchange of gunfire between gang leaders, a mother cleans a pool of her daughter’s blood off the street, two men are slapped in the face, gunshots are heard outside a home, several scenes depict gunfights; very strong sexual content includes several scenes depicting graphic fornication, multiple scenes describe or use innuendo to describe a male’s aroused state, sex sound effects are used in several scenes, a man gropes a woman’s breast, one scene takes place in a strip club where strippers are not present but discussed, a mob of women wear chastity belts, women graphically discuss refusing men sex in multiple scenes, a boy walks on his mother having sexual relations, one scene involves voyeurism as hundreds of people watch a couple fornicate, the entire plot revolves around sex, and almost every scene discusses or depicts it in some way, a woman seducing a man gets him to strip to his underwear and imitate sexual acts, sexual immorality between unmarried couples is widely promoted and accepted within the community, men whose girlfriends or wives refuse them sex have no problem turning to another woman to satisfy their desires; nude couples engaged in sex but with their lower genitalia hidden by camera angles in a couple of scenes, upper male nudity in several scenes wearing underwear only, rear male nudity in several scenes; alcohol use; multiple scenes depict cigarette smoking and drug use, multiple scenes mention illegal drug sales; and, men talk about women as their inferiors and having their place as sexual pleasers, men allow their ego to fuel violence, people in the community refuse to come forward as witnesses to murders, and there’s a false, idealistic, somewhat superficial view of love as the only real security and answer to violence.
I really loved that part where Spike lee calls black people who don't want to give up their rights and their guns to the government as Ben Carson sellouts. It makes me regret that our first black president was not Alan keyes or Herman Cain. It would've made these black leftists heads explode.
But Ted Baehr goes on and just exposes even more the hatred of whites and the leftist propaganda including marxism and the black lives movement that attacks America and attacks constitutional freedom that is keeping blacks from being in a worse condition like slavery.
CHI-RAQ the movie is way too long and there are too many scenes that act purely as vehicles for characters to spout off soliloquies full of leftist political propaganda – something for which the movie’s swarm of A-list stars gladly lend their talents. The story also lacks cohesion and skips around from one event to the next without much exposition in between these events.
Perhaps even worse, the radical, hateful, anti-cop Black Lives Matter agenda permeates this movie, calling out the militarization of police forces and the mistreatment of blacks in low-income communities. Even so, at least the movie recognizes the problem of black-on-black violence is recognized and dealt with, instead of Spike Lee trying to blame it all on other segments of the society.
However, Lee’s movie has no shortage of racism against whites, particularly southern whites, who were stereotypically demonized as confederate flag, gun-loving, racist warmongers. There is also a very strong gun control agenda at play, with the blame being laid on the guns themselves rather than the evil criminals the guns.
of course the fact that our police force is communist and militarized is a problematic factor. Police brutality towards blacks gives black criminals like those in this trite film an excuse to go on rampages and murder innocent people like with the killing of two innocent policemen in the wake of Eric Garner's death.
And what left wing anti-american film based in Chicago Would be incomplete without Father Mike Pfleger, Catholic priest and communist who works with Jeremiah Wright and runs St Sabina church in Chicago which is also in the movie! Father Pfleger despite his heretical communism is not excommunicated by the church. He has called for violence against 2nd amendment supporters and against gun dealers merely for practicing the 2nd and 1st amendment enshrined in the bill of rights. The same bill I might add that abolished slavery.
Father Pfleger in fact wrote the sermon used during the funeral of an 11 year old girl named Patti who was killed in the crossfire of a gang shooting. here it is....
I am going to speak about a life today. An important life in our community. A life that ends life. The life of a gun.
This handgun was born in a factory in Springfield, Massachusetts in April of this year.
This gun began its professional career when it was purchased by “Big Tony” from Chicago at a Indiana Gun Show using a fake Indiana ID.
A Chicago gang bought the gun and many firearms for "Big Money" for their work in the underground economy.
The underground economy exists because banks and lending institutions rarely loan money to poor people. When asked to loan money to the poor they say, "No! No! No! No! No! Sorry but no loan."
Thus, drugs are the currency of the underground economy. Individual sales are strictly cash and carry, requiring guns for protection and retaliation. The gun found purpose. Drug houses with animated money signs popping up around them. Drug houses are banks. Why do you rob drug houses? Because that's where the loot is.
Suburban and wealthy customers, the children of the lenders and bank officials purchase narcotics.
They are not subject to police scrutiny like poor people are because these people are not “thugs.” They instead need rehab.
However, their children admire the thug outlaw culture but do so from the safety of their suburban neighborhoods. No, this gun wouldn’t get caught dead there!
No, this gun found work at the only place hiring in the hood!
This gun is the principal player in a reality TV urban murder show, which can be seen at 5 and 10 PM every night, Eyewitness 7 News.
That’s when this gun met our child Patty. No, things don't look good. Our Patty is gone. Politicians are in the pocket of the NRA. The economy has abandoned the poor. Gang members are more concerned with ego, street cred and greed than human life. A code of silence keeps us paralyzed. Violence reigns. No, things don't look good. Patty's become part of America's wardrobe where it's easier to get a gun than a computer. Sirens and gunshots are our soundtrack.
Yellow police tape, teddy bears, and balloons are the National Memorial of our neighborhoods. But this is not new. It hasn't looked good for a long time. It didn't look good in a Birmingham church when four little girls were blown to death. It didn't look good when Medgar was dying in his driveway. It didn't look good when Malcolm was shot down onstage. It didn't look good when Martin Luther King stood on the balcony outside Room 306 and at 6:03 was taken from us. No, it doesn't look good, not when Patty was lost on a busy street, with folks going to work and school, with cars passing by. How is it possible that no witnesses have come forward? What makes you a target is not the shooter, but rather the community that surrenders to fear and becomes silent!
It doesn't look good when we here at St. Sabina must put out a $5,000 bounty for information leading to the arrest of Patty's murderer or any murderer! And those that shoot our children down go back home and watch SportsCenter then eat a Whopper and fries and act like nuthin' happened—no it DOESN’T LOOK GOOD! With things looking like they do, looking so bad—seems like our enemies are just too strong, the obstacles just too large, looks like the Pharaohs will keep us in Bondage Forever!
But Brothers and Sisters, I've come here to tell ya'll today that early one mornin', 2000 years ago, Jesus got up from the grave and shouted to you and me and all humanity, IT AIN'T WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE! I've come here to tell the devil and all his two legged helpers—it ain’t what it looks like! We will not allow this self-inflicted genocide to continue. You cannot murder our children! Patty will have justice! I know it looks bad, but it ain't over, Jesus rose up from the grave and because he did. Hope wins! Justice wins! Peace wins! Goodness wins! Righteousness wins! Love wins! Love wins! Love wins!
Actually father, slavery wins. I guess you don't recall that guns were banned in Ireland when the English occupied it and murdered Catholics or in the Soviet Union were preists like you including leftists were shot by Stalin. Note that he wants to "take out" those who practice the 2nd amendment.
The bolded comment above was by a commentator that showed it to me. Thank you BTW. whoever gave it to me. The sermon sets the tone for the movie. The IRA banking is at fault, money lenders and capitalists are at fault and most of all its all the fault of the NRA, not thugs, not hip-hop urban culture. Never the fault of the lack of morals.
Also note the sermon contained information about the gun. The gun used in the murder was illegal just like every gun in Chicago that was used in a gang shooting in real life and in the movie! The gun was illegally purchased at an Indiana gun show using a fake Indiana State ID! It was then sold by some Italian Mobster to the gangs for drugs and money. This is typical in real life Chicago.
As for the underground economy, No Father Pfleger it doesn't exist because money lenders don't want to risk their money on uneducated liberals in the hood, nor because of racism. Underground economy like the one you described exist because a demand for certain goods the government has deemed illegal exists. Socialism will not make it go away.
The bottom line is that even in One of Spike Lee's anti-american marxist flicks, gun control fails. This gun was illegally purchased. Big Tony violated umteen gun laws state local and federal to get the gun used. It didn't stop the murder. But Father Pfleger and the moronic marxists that produced this stupid movie wont get it! They still blame guns they still blame the NRA!
What's interesting also is that St Sabina puts out a $5000 reward for information leading to the murderer's arrest. This is commonplace because the police in Chicago are cowardly and lazy and don't care what happens to black victims. its commonplace in the majority of cities regardless of size. Policemen would rather get paid our taxes then seize our guns, harass us, torture us, hassle us, violate the constititon then go eat Dunkin Donuts like nothing happened!
The fact that the police are largely to blame is probably the only accurate thing said in the movie. One other thing of note is the stop snitching phenomena that is being permeated in black neighborhoods and pop culture. Its not just that they are afraid of retaliation for informing on the killers of children its because its unpopular. Popular culture says shut up be quiet and let the criminals run free.
As for the remarks about economics the reason these people cannot get loans for business is because of the high risk involved. First of all people in South Chicago are largely uneducated and know nothing about running a business. Second of all because South Chicago is dangerous the business will more than likely go under or be wiped out by the gangs.
These money lenders and bankers cannot simply make bad loans and not expect repayment. It doesn't work that way. In fact the reason we had the great recession was because of these kinds of loans. Under the CRA, the community reinvestment act passed by President Clinton in 1996, bankers were forced to give loans out to these urban street dwellers who were mostly uneducated and immoral. Food stamps and welfare were used as a surety these people spent their loans wasted them on homes and business they didn't know how to maintain and they lost out on these toxic loan that couldn't be repaid.
If you are an educated man or woman and live in South Chicago and want to start a business here's some advice for you from another businessman.
first, get out of Chicago in fact get out of Illinois! You can't make it when the state soaks you and squeezes you! Go to Iowa or Nebraksa or Kansas. Or better yet Oklahoma or Texas
second make sure you have a good education! go to college or trade school!
third don't go to neighborhoods full of crime
I'm just scratching the surface but you get the idea. MOVE! Let Chicago wallow in welfare and crime. Let the moral and decent live elsewhere.
And now here are some responses. About 2/3 of them are negative which shows how good I did. Nothing but the usual liberal banter. I am this, I am that, racist sexist wha! Wha! The rest were friendly criticisms and positive. I could not post all the comments because they were filled with foul language. Here are two bad email.
Here's our first one.
White man you F**king stupid! You sit in your mansion in New Hampshire eating cavyar while N****ers like me have to work 9 to 5 and eat fak food at a mission! You aint ever lived in the hood! You don't know what its like! I went to bad school I didn't have a choice! I couldn't lern anything from these here devils! You devils all privilaged sending you kids to private school you get to do what you want while I gotta work and I gotta watch out for getting shot in the hed or having polise harass and frisk me! You insulatid you safe you dont know what it be like! You ever come down to North Philly i blow you up white boy stay in your mansion in your posh rich gated community!
Here's the second one
You are so stupid! You don't do a movie review unless the movie comes out first! i work as a case manager for people in Chicago who are poor! These people don't choose to become criminals they have to! Its the only way they can survive and we got too many of these problems! You are so F**king ignorant and how dare you call people like me lazy and traitors when you're the ones making this problem happen by supporting guns. We need to murder all you racists and gun owners and give your money to the poor! F***king rich a** punk! Were trying to help them and all you do is do this S**t blaming the victims and blaming the community and blaming Spike Lee. Spike lee is right! Its all because of white southerners and gun owners and the NRA!
WHA! WHA! WHA! No mention of abuse by government, high taxes and regulations not a mention of corruption in Illinois and Chicago. All it is is blame the white man, blame the rich blame the NRA and blame the gun owners. The second one is your typical government emplioyee, lazy entitled communist and bloodthirsty. If ever there was a reason to eliminate unions this is it.
All in all the movie not worth seeing, it is way too long. Also, a ton of A-list stars appear to throw their weight behind the movie’s politically correct agenda mocking Southerners, attacking the NRA and supporting gun control, among other things. To top it off it is also abhorrently full of graphic lewd content, violence and foul language. If you want to see a movie this month, see Star Wars.
