As some indication of the intellectual bottleneck of what passes for cultural criticism today, Michael McCaffrey of Russia Today calls James Gunn’s Peacemaker, the superhero TV series which happens to be a spin-off from the 2021 film The Suicide Squad, “compelling and entertaining.”[1] McCaffrey agrees that “in typical flaccid fashion, on Peacemaker every white, male character is either an imbecile, a cuckold, or an outright Nazi.”[2]

True. But is that right? Aren’t we seeing a double standard here? Let’s flip the political table for a moment. Would it be right to portray a black person, gay person, a bisexual person, a lesbian, or even an Asian person “an imbecile, a cuckold, or an outright Nazi” in any movie without repercussion these days? Didn’t David Chapelle get into trouble earlier for simply saying that “gender is a fact” and not a social concept that can be changed at will?

In any event, if it is not politically correct to denigrate a person of color in a movie, then why is it right for Gunn to vilify other people in Peacemaker? Isn’t Gunn inciting anger among some people by doing that? Didn’t Rosanne Barr get fired from ABC after she apologized for a tweet she defended as a joke?

The hidden grammar here is that Gunn has told us that he is “part Jewish,” though he grew up in a Catholic family. Gunn’s dad was an alcoholic when Gunn was young, and “that created a lot of turmoil in the family. I came from many, many alcoholics in my family.”[3]

Gunn confessed: “Being very Irish Catholic, I knew my parents loved me, and that was the most important thing.”[4] It is obvious to see this love-hate relationship in Gunn’s work, particularly in Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Gunn also admitted that it is “what ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’ is all about.”[5] How? The Washington Post declares:

“Peter Quill (Chris Pratt), the space hero with serious daddy issues, squabbles and fights alongside his “adopted” family that includes a green-tinted love interest (Zoe Saldana’s Gamora), a trash-talking critter (Bradley Cooper’s Rocket Raccoon), a taunting blue hulk (Dave Bautista’s Drax) and an adorable sapling (Vin Diesel’s Baby Groot).”[6]

Gunn was eventually fired from Disney because alt-right advocate Mike Cernovich published many of Gunn’s thousands of tweets about pedophilia. Once the tweets got media attention, Gunn began to remove them from his Twitter feed. But the damage was already done. What were some of those interesting tweets?

“Expendables is so manly I fucked the shit out of the pussy boy next to me.”

“The best thing about being raped is when you’re done being raped and it’s like ‘whew this feels great, not being raped!’”

“I remember my first NAMBLA meeting. It was the first time I felt ok being who I am.” NAMBLA, according to Wikipedia, is “The North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is a pedophilia and pederasty advocacy organization in the United States.”

“I’m doing a big Hollywood film adaptation of The Giving Tree with a happy ending — the tree grows back and gives the kid a blowjob.”

“I like it when little boys touch me in my silly place.”

“The Hardy Boys and the Mystery of What It Feels Like When Uncle Bernie Fists Me.”

If a Catholic priest happens to remotely say things like that, the entire media would ask that his head be placed on a silver platter. Yet despite all of that, Gunn was reinstated as director because he got so much love in Hollywood. From Wikipedia:

“Walt Disney Studios’s decision received criticism from many entertainers and journalists, including actors Dave Bautista, Selma Blair, Patton Oswalt, David Dastmalchian, Michael Ian Black, Mikaela Hoover, Mike Colter, Alex Winter, David Hasselhoff, directors Joe Carnahan and Fede Álvarez, comics artist Jim Starlin, musician Rhett Miller, comedian Jim Jefferies, Rick and Morty creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, journalist David A. French and Troma Entertainment founder and president Lloyd Kaufman.

“Bobcat Goldthwait, who worked as a voice actor on the 1997 Disney film Hercules, responded to the incident by asking Disney to remove his voice from an upcoming park attraction based on the film.

“On July 30, 2018, Guardians of the Galaxy cast members Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Sean Gunn, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff and Michael Rooker released a joint statement through social media expressing their support for Gunn.”

In any event, Gunn’s Peacemaker is nothing more than a frontal attack on the moral order. In that sense, McCaffrey is out of his depth. This was clearly the case when he wrote an article in 2020 entitled, “Horny women of the world unite… Don’t let woke puritans cancel the steamy Netflix movie 365 Days.” 365 Days is a pornographic drama.

The conclusion is pretty straightforward here. Whether he likes it or not, McCaffrey is in bed with the very people who have been pushing the pornographic agenda on the culture. As Jewish scholar Nathan Abrams argued in 2004, pornography in the entertainment industry was (and still is) a deliberate attack on the moral order and any culture that embraced that moral order.

As Abrams himself put it:

“Jewish involvement in porn…is the result of an atavistic hatred of Christian authority: they are trying to weaken the dominant culture in America by moral subversion…

“Pornography thus becomes a way of defiling Christian culture and, as it penetrates to the very heart of the American mainstream (and is no doubt consumed by those very same WASPs), its subversive character becomes more charged. Porn is no longer of the ‘what the Butler saw’ voyeuristic type; instead, it is driven to new extremes of portrayal that stretch the boundaries of the porn aesthetic. As new sexual positions are portrayed, the desire to shock (as well as entertain) seems clear.

“It is a case of the traditional revolutionary/radical drive of immigrant Jews in America being channeled into sexual rather than leftist politics.”[7]

When the decency code was eventually reversed in the late 1960s, Hollywood crossed the Rubicon, never to return. Sexual mores were successfully challenged by Samuel Roth in the 1957 court case Roth v United States, after which Hollywood began to push past its former boundaries.[8]

Hollywood then began to unleash pornographic films such as Deep Throat (1972). And since pornography is a largely Jewish business, it was no coincidence that Jewish revolutionaries attacked every single moral law in America in order to produce filth as “art.”[9]

In an article entitled “Dirty Jews,” which was published by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Jewish scholar Joshua Lambert states that “Brilliant actors like Larry David and Sarah Silverman are challenging America’s powerful religious, family-friendly culture and asserting their Jewishness by glorifying obscenity.”[10] Lambert declares that Jews use pornography and most specifically obscenity “to fight anti-Semitism…”[11]
