Is anyone actually surprised at this point?
Dunkirk, the gruesome yet exhilarating WWII account directed by Christopher Nolan, has already surpassed $300 Million at the box office. The historically accurate film delineates the ghastly Battle of Dunkirk – a long-fought bloodshed between the Allied forces and Nazi Germany at Dunkerque, France during the second world war. History tells us, to the dismay of many on the left, that this battle was fought by mostly white men. Unable to comprehend basic facts or American history, prominent liberal writers lashed out and called the movie racist, sexist, and every other trigger word they could possibly think of. The irony, of course, is that hundreds of thousands of these brave white men lost their lives defending the right to say these ludicrous things. Here are three of the most inane complaints of micro-aggression regarding Dunkirk (so far):
- Brian Truitt of USA Today had the following statement in his recount of the film:
The trio of timelines can be jarring as you figure out how they all fit, and the fact that there are only a couple of women and no lead actors of color may rub some the wrong way.
Truitt does acknowledge that the film depicts a true account of history, so he at least has that going for him. This fact, however, leads us to believe he is just clueless about the biggest military conflict in history. Sorry Brian, but the bloodiest war this nation has ever seen was fought predominantly by white men. That’s a fact, not an opinion. And as the great Ben Shapiro always points out, facts don’t care about your feelings.
Apparently Nolan’s account of non-fiction didn’t #trigger Truitt too much because he said he actually liked the film – he gave it three and a half stars. Truitt, conversely, never had a single complaint about the lack of white men and females in recent movies about the Tuskegee Air Force.
- Mehera Bonner of Marie Claire penned an article titled “I Think ‘Dunkirk’ Was Mediocre at Best, and It’s Not Because I’m Some Naive Woman Who Doesn’t Get It.”
Well Mehera, you have most certainly made clear to the whole globe and every single one of its inhabitants that you are, word-for-word, ‘some naive woman who doesn’t get it’. ‘It’ being facts.
But my main issue with Dunkirk is that it’s so clearly designed for men to man-out over. And look, it’s not like I need every movie to have “strong female leads.” Wonder Woman can probably tide me over for at least a year, and I understand that this war was dominated by brave male soldiers. I get that.
Again, she says she gets it but it couldn’t be more clear that she does not, in fact, get it. She also writes that she doesn’t need every movie to have “strong female leads” because Wonder Woman gave her her fix, yet she authored this ignorant op-ed about the next action-thriller to chronologically come to theaters. She couldn’t even wait one or two movies before going full-moron. On top of that, Wonder Woman is a fiction comic book – Dunkirk is a true story.
How does she know what gender those soldiers identify with, anyway?
- Robert Fisk of The Independent: “When you watch Dunkirk, remember that it’s a whitewashed version which ignores the bravery of black and Muslim soldiers”
How do these stories even get passed the editors? By this point in the article it’s pretty clear – these guys are delusional when it comes to the difference between reality and fiction.
The only ‘whitewashed’ thing about this movie were the massive amounts of dead white bodies that were washing up on the shore.
