The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost,
Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration,
politics without God, heaven without hell.
“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”
― William Saroyan
The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of the blessings. The inherent blessing of socialism is the equal sharing of misery. -- Winston Churchill
Ignorance is not an opinion, liberals
I believe in Christianity as I believe the sun has risen; not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. C. S. Lewis
if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

There is no revenue generated from any material posted here. I am not in competition with any news source, including any other on-line journal, and I have no interest in interfering with any person’s ability to earn an income as an author, journalist, photographer, or artist. This website contains some quotations and excerpts from copyrighted material. These uses fall well within the copyright doctrine of “Fair Use.” Section 107 of the United States Code, Title 17, specifies the conditions under which, “the fair use of a copyrighted work . . . for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching . . ., scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright.” It provides four considerations for determining fair use: (1) The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes, (2) The nature of the copyrighted work, (3) The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole, and (4) The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work. The use on this website of other material involves “criticism, comment, news reporting, scholarship or research” (a) The “purpose and character” of the website is not “commercial.” (b) The overwhelming majority of the material is the author’s own research and work. It is in no way a mere collection of others’ copyrighted works, nor is any material competitive with those sources. (2) The “nature of the copyrighted work” quoted is often “news” or “faith,” categories given lesser protection in fair use cases than works of fiction. (3) Most uses involve excerpts rather than entire works. Because the adverse financial impact on copyright owners is central to the purpose of copyright law, and the analysis of alleged violations, it’s relevant to note that, under factor (4), (a) no one in search of the quoted material would substitute this blog or book for the original source, (b) it is highly unlikely this website (or any material created from it) will ever have more than a de minimis impact on any of the copyright works’ potential market, and (c) to the extent it might do so, it would be far more likely be a positive, rather than a negative, impact (by drawing attention to the work, crediting it, and providing a source where it may be found). Finally, to the extent any copyright owner may wish, consideration will be given to all reasonable requests that copyright material be removed from this website. I will always endeavor to provide proper attribution to the source of another person’s work if I know it.

One must assume they chose the best “black” movies to showcase.
Perhaps they could have chosen the best movies about the civil rights effort of MLK’s time.
An effort that included many whites who gave up their “privilege” to fight the battle against the Democrat machine that was oppressing the blacks.

Z, you are absolutely right in pointing out their racism. However, the left never has shown any self awareness so I’m sure they think they are just being righteous. It’s like they are saying, “We aren’t racist. We have black film friends”.
BTW, my wife Tina is always watching the old movies on Turner (or I Love Lucy re-runs on Hallmark when she is not watching EWTN). I just asked her if she noticed their left bias and she says she never watches the hosts. There is your answer!

The guy that used to host TCM that just passed away recently? He did a great total non-political job of hosting. He only talked about the trivia about the film and the actors.
Otherwise, the more stupid they are the more they think they should be controlling your thoughts. Morning Joe for example – mind of a two year old. I don’t watch of course I just see the blurbs that make it past my filters.

Gad! Why does TCM have to “politicize” those old movies you mentioned?
The Left never quits — and that’s why the Left continues to gain ground.

Maybe we should revisit what the word “racist” means.
Ed, best or not, it just reeks of silly pandering to race.
Kid, yes, the other guy who died did a great job. Mankiewicz (sp?) now is a bleeding heart lib who puts liberalness into EVERYTHING..
Jerry, the hosts only introduce the films, so I’m not sure anybody ‘watches’ them but maybe I’m just more sensitive to liberal crap? I envy her!
AOW…it’s so disheartening to have just watched a FABULOUS American WWII film, feel so good about the country, and have them say “that was a propaganda film from 1942…” !!!
Cube….it’s being used too much.
I mean, it’s one thing to show all films about the founding fathers on President’s Day….but to show all Black films on MLK Jr day and barely ever show them otherwise? Silly and…maybe not racist, but pandering…..If I were Black, I’d sure see that. “why not show Black films more?” There aren’t THAT many of all Black casts, and, frankly, many aren’t very good (I watched Anna Lucasta the other day, all Black cast, and I rather liked it, but it wasn’t very well done)
We like TCM also, Z. However, I would like to point out the films during WWll did have propaganda messages, not against the war but in patriotic support. “Remember Pearl Harbor” was one such slogan that was posted everywhere. The war films almost always had messages of support as a constant reminder of why we were making sacrifices at home and abroad.
Not all propaganda is negative, at least at that time it wasn’t. Today is another story, though.

Mal, I TOTALLY agree, but I believe the way in which the host on TCM talks ‘propaganda’ is belittling and cheap. I haven’t quoted all the things I’ve heard there….
Instead of immediately pointing out the PROPAGANDA FILM when the movie finishes and we’re feeling so warm and cozy about the great country we live in, I’d like something said like “Imagine the courage and resolve our great soldiers had after Pearl Harbor…” or “Remember those American army nurses who did so much so far from home to help our soldiers survive.”.
I’m thinking that’d be WONDERFUL.
And Many of the actors during that time were WWII veterans.
BIG NEWS IN HEADLINES TODAY: Other Presidents volunteered on MLK Jr day…Trump is PLAYING GOLF!
Man….let the guy relax! Yes, he did slam Obama BIG TIME, for playing about half the golf he’s played this year, but LET HIM ALONE!
Kid, that’s true…and volunteers, no draft for them.
MARK LEVINE TODAY BLEW MY MIND! I swear he sounded exactly like my rants about the media, INCLUDING the one I call “that pudgy little Anna Navarro” , the RINO on CNN….he covered EVERY point that i make, I was laughing out loud, stunned at what he was saying….didn’t know we thought QUITE so much alike!
Okay, Z. I get your point. I guess I hadn’t paid that much attention to the BS between the films
Kid, you’re absolutely right about the actors all enlisting, and many came back with heroic tales and medals. Ah, but that was a different time and a different Hollywood, wasn’t it?
But now we live in the victim society. A doctor for the gymnasts had violated the gymnasts for years but no one said anything. An actor has a better agent and gets more money than the female but it is the males fault. Women are paid less than men. A movie producer prays on women for years and they don’t say anything, remember the casting couch since silent movies.
In the age of enlightenment and equal rights why do all these women embrace being victims. Someone leads and they all follow which is good for the leader but makes the rest just followers. Now Opra reads a speech on women rights and she and Meryl Streep just didn’t know Harvey was a molester. Maybe that just shows how buried in the sand their heads are or could they just be posturing for attention.
She was wrong about “later, he went into politics.” He was always in politics. Ask anyone who sat with him at the canteen. 🙂
