Hollywood will never stop pandering to America.
Movie after movie, show after show, Hollywood tries to manipulate its audience with liberal propaganda.
And now one upcoming controversial movie trolls President Trump and all of his staunch supporters.
Director Spike Lee tends to thrive on controversy and is known for films like Do the Right Thing,Inside Man,and The 25th Hour.
And Lee’s newest controversial film, BlacKkKlansman, is based on a true story of a black police detective who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the 1970’s.
BlacKkKlansman just premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and during a presser for the upcoming film, Lee heatedly criticized President Trump’s “racism” regarding the Charlottesville protest:
“That motherf—er was given a chance to say we are bout love, and not hate, and that motherf—er did not denounce the motherf—ing Klan, the alt-right, and those Nazi motherf—ers,” he said. “It was a defining moment, and he could’ve said to the world…that we were better than that.”
As we all know, Trump denounced the Klan in the wake of the Charlottesville incident and has never said one time that his supporters are not “about love.”
The trailer release coincided with the world premiere of BlacKkKlansman and there are scenes where they clearly troll Trump and his supporters; for instance when the Ku Klux Klan, led by David Duke (played by Topher Grace), chants “America First!”
“The first trailer for Hollywood director Spike Lee’s latest film features a group of Ku Klux Klan members spouting the slogan “America First.”
The film, BlackkKlansman, tells the story of a real-life African-American detective from Colorado Springs, Colorado, who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in 1979 when the Klan began looking to start a new chapter in the Centennial State.
The slogan-shouting scene featuring notorious KKK leader David Duke toasting “America First” occurs near the end of the trailer.
Lee’s broad comedy stars John David Washington, son of actor Denzel Washington, as Detective Ron Stallworth who is assigned the task of infiltrating the Black Panthers to ferret out their dangerous plans.
But after feeling guilty for wearing a wire to entrap the black power group, the detective begins phoning a local KKK chapter to even the score a bit by entrapping the white power group, too. Adam Driver plays Stallworth’s police partner who becomes the “white face” of Stallworth’s phoned-in radical white power racist.
It appears that the film takes some license with the real account by Detective Stallworth, by shoehorning Louisiana-based Klan leader David Duke more prominently in the film. In reality, Stallworth only spoke to Duke over the phone a few times to corroborate his application for joining the Colorado chapter he was tasked with investigating.
As for the slogan “America First,” it has a very long history of use by U.S. politicians of all parties and appears to have been used as early as the 1890s.
Noted politicians who used the phrase include Presidents Woodrow Wilson, Calvin Coolidge, Warren G. Harding, and William McKinley.
Henry Cabot Lodge also used the phrase. The Klan also employed the term in the 1920s. Duke himself even used “America First” as a political campaign slogan, but not until 2016.
Even the liberal “fact checking” site, Snopes says that the slogan has a long pedigree in American politics and is not exclusively connected to white power groups.
In a recent press junket for the new film, Lee attacked President Donald Trump calling him “Agent Orange” and insisting he is on the “wrong side of history” for his remarks during the riots at Charlottesville, Virginia, last year.”

This film is just another sad attempt to plague the minds of millions of people that Trump and all of his supporters are racist.
