‘The Butler’: Big O’s Big Box Office Boo-Boo

257898-jane-fonda-637x0-1Guess it’s not exactly like the 1980s, when you could hire Whoopi Goldberg to dress up like an ‘ugly’ black woman, get Andraé Crouch to authenticate the Negro Spiritual music of the early 1900s, and say absolutely nothing everybody doesn’t already know—that black women in America were the victims of poverty, racism and sexism.

It hasn’t changed much, though.

In Oprah Winfrey History World.

Black women whose husbands are butlers in the White House still feel the full impact of African American demeanery, to play loose with a word, when they are confronted with, not whips, chains or two-by-fours, but the insensitivity of Ronald Reagan and his witch of a wife Nancy.

Pain, I tell you! Humiliation! To have to eat the leftover filet mignon and escargot from those uppity white folks’ state dinners. Just kidding.

Excerpted from Pat Dollard via The Other McCain

The film depicts a White House butler who served eight presidents, and has come under fire for its portrayal of former President Ronald Reagan and his wife Nancy as being racially insensitive and for casting Jane Fonda as the first lady….

Supporters of President Reagan and veterans groups especially have criticized the film, with some calling for boycotts….

The casting of Fonda to play Nancy Reagan in the movie has sparked a backlash among military veterans who cannot forgive her for her actions during the Vietnam War.

“I do think the team behind the movie made a mistake by casting people like Jane Fonda in the film. It stirred up a few news headlines, but it likely angered those who might otherwise check the movie out,” said Toto, assistant editor of Big Hollywood. “Fonda is in the film for less than a few minutes, so her talents weren’t needed.”

Oh contraire. Jane Fonda’s talents were indispensible for a Hollywood production about a black man who served eight presidents in the most sought after butler gig in the world. A degrading occupation to say the least.

Who else could possibly play Nancy Reagan but her antithesis Jane Fonda, an American traitor who sold out her country and unquestionably cost American lives during the Vietnam War.

Nancy’s worst offense in real life? Being a bit of a nag at Ronnie’s heels from time to time, and turning RINO after the 40th president was no longer cognitive.

Other bad actors?

Alan Rickman (He played the evil Hans Gruber in ‘Die Hard‘) the perfect Reagan. With early episodes of nonexistent Alzheimer’s. Fair, honest portrayal of the stupid, racially insensitive Reagan. You’ll just want to jump out of your seat and yell, Yippie Ki-Yay motherf**ker! Rickman is Ronald Wilson Reagan.

Robin Williams as Dwight D. Eisenhower. Now here is a real stretch; a short Jewish liberal playing a tall stalwart conservative WASP whose strategic genius almost single handedly won World War II and gave us the Interstate Highway System. Robin did what again?

John Cusack as Richard Nixon—absolutely revered the man in real life—Hey, slap on the ski-jump nose putty, takes almost no acting ability at all—in other words just be John Cusack—and you’ve got the role down flat.

Oprah’s people also cast Melissa Leo—she’s the one who dropped the F-bomb at the Academy Awards a few years back, but wisely dropped her to the cutting room floor.

Wouldn’t it be nice if just once a Hollywood movie ‘based on a true story’ actually were based on a true story? Yes, there were inequities, but can we get freaking over it?

No, not really. Oprah Winfrey has apparently got some getting even to do.

So if you love seething, hateful Hollywood liberals playing arrogant racist white guys in a completely trumped up, rewritten history of a great man who served both his country and his presidents, The Butler is the must-see movie of the summer.

    Hollywood rarely makes an honest film on a true story. Most likely, I will not see it!!

    The Butler…. A movie I will have made a point never to see with that traitorous bitch. I know what she is. I know what she did. I was there, then. Today her legacy continues as will the likes of Hillary (Benghazi) Clinton, And who will waste time endorsing HER for next socialist leader of America? … the same type of people that went and paid to see the butler. Fvck that.
