Progressives are on a march to destroy and rewrite any history that doesn’t fit their worldview. Tim Gray, the super white, super old, super male, and super progressive editor of Variety is fighting for the cause by making the argument that classic movies should now come with progressive warning labels that explain to viewers how problematic they are.
Now while you may be thinking about films in the 1930s that depicted white actors in blackface, Variety is arguing that more modern films be censored to protect progressive sensitivities. Movies such as Forest Gump because of it’s problematic portrayals of people in wheelchairs and people with AIDS.
As the world sits on its hands and allows far-left activists to destroy statues and burn historical churches, because no one has the balls to tell these culture jihadists to get bent, Variety has made a list of 10 classic films that need warning labels because they may trigger the emotional instability of adults.
The first film is Dirty Harry because progressives believe that a film that mocks liberal judges and ‘do-gooders’ is too extreme for the eyes of normal citizens. A film of this caliber must come with a warning label like a pack of cigarettes.
The next film is Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, a film that is offensive because the villains are portrayed as primitive and bloodthirsty foreigners and it may be offensive to Indian people.
Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood makes the list because the film is set in the 1960s, a time which Variety calls “when some Americans felt the status quo was being threatened by minorities, hippies and newly liberated women”. Well, clearly in the year 2020, those Americans were completely unjustified in their fear of what America would turn into 50 years later…
1961’s The Children’s Hour is offensive to liberals because it portrays LGBT people as self-loathing, pitiable and perverted, a label that it took years of PRIDE parades to prove as false.
John Wayne’s The Searchers makes the list of films that make commies feel bad as Wayne plays a Civil War veteran by on the Confederate side *gasp*. Variety insists that Searchers is the epitome of a problematic film, and should be screened with discussions, and in liberal speak, ‘discussions’ actually mean lectures where you shut up and listen to them against your will.
The Silence of the Lambs is transphobic and if you don’t think so, you are part of the problem. Buffalo Bill is not trans, but audiences remember the women’s makeup, his little poodle and the fact that he tucks his male genitals away to look female. But he’s not trans so we need to put a label on that.
Me Before You a 2016 film you probably never heard of it offensive because someone who is paralyzed kills himself, presenting the idea that suicide is better than life with a disability. Well if that disability is believing that Karl Marx’s ideas can shape a functioning society…
Holiday Inn is a 1940s movie with actors in black face…so I guess that’s bad.
Finally, we have the film True Lies, a movie that progressives have taken serious retroactive offense to because the villains were radical Islamic terrorists. If there is one thing that 9/11 told us, it’s Arab religious terrorists are a complete myth created by Sean Hannity and Fox News…
If we continue to sit around and allow communists to determine morality as the majority of us sit on our social media accounts to complain about it, the world as we know it is going to turn into a horrific chapter of a history book and we would have allowed it to happen.

Fuck Tim Gray. These Progressive communists clearly want a civil war to happen. And we know those Progressive communists will not survive.
The headline is false. There is no censorship demand.
Here’s what V actually said: “All films should be viewed with a critical eye, but that doesn’t mean banning them. … here are 10 films that need to be presented with disclaimers and discussions before and after a screening.”
I see no censorship. And if you are at a public screening, walk out during the ‘discussion.’
The definition of “Censorship” is the suppression of speech or other information. Look it up. A contravening note at the beginning of a film is suppression of the message of that film and hence suppresses the intention of the artists who produced it. A pertinent example is when the US government forced a message to be played before the movies “Fail Safe” and “Dr. Strangelove” to the effect that the scenarios shown in the movies could not happen. This undermined the intent of both of the movies message about nuclear disarmament and constituted censorship.
I should note that this type of censorship has been around for a while. I’m not interested in listening to Whoopi Goldberg or Leonard Maltin explain in detail why my collection of Warner Brothers or Disney cartoons is “problematic”. I don’t like to be reminded that we’re living in an age of narrow minded woke scold fascists looking for heretics to burn.
Banning isn’t the only form of censorship. Suppression and the “reeducation” of art falls in that category.
