Gunn Control

James Gunn - Guardians of the Galaxy

Leftists took vicious delight in ruining anyone who failed to celebrate their transformation of the West into NYC's 42nd St. circa 1974. And they could libel, deplatform, and disemploy with impunity while the controlled opposition of Conservative Inc. played the Washington Generals to the Left's Harlem Globetrotters.

But now that a new generation of dissident right-wingers has taken the field, SJWs are facing real opposition that plays by the Left's own rules, and their day is getting rocked.

Submitted for your approval: the case of one James Gunn.
James Gunn has been removed as director of the Guardians Of The Galaxy series after a batch of old social media dispatches were unearthed that touched on areas like pedophilia and rape. In the latest shocking #metoo development in the entertainment industry, Gunn was severed from the Marvel Comics Universe after a slew of social media posts he wrote before getting Guardians of the Galaxy surfaced. According to Fox News, they were posted because Gunn is an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and the effort was to knock him down a few pegs.
Mission accomplished. Gunn has long been a provocateur who has drawn ire in the past for his unusual humor. Among the tweets that forced Disney and Marvel’s hand were: “I like when little boys touch me in my silly place.”
I'll spare you examples of Gunn's other choice tweets. Suffice it to say they're orders of magnitude worse than the degenerate quote above. Even Deadline Hollywood had to drop their feeble attempt at "He's a quirky provocateur with an edgy sense of humor!" hand waving in the face of Gunn's filth.
Disney responded quickly and decisively: “The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him,” said Alan Horn, Walt Disney Studios chairman, in a statement just released.
Lest you're tempted to feel sorry for this dirt bag, reserve judgment until you see what he tweeted just last month.

James Gunn - Trump

Gunn is probably just butthurt he doesn't have access to those photos.

It's unclear who's more contemptible: the Hollywood freaks themselves, or the ex-thought leaders of NRO conservatism who knew Hollywood was packed to the rafters with freaks yet allowed them to continue warping our culture unabated by scolding anyone who dared consider exposing them.

Not that it matters. The Buckleys, Wills, and McCains are done. Now guys like Cernovich and Posobiec are leveraging our enemies' well-known perversions to take scalps. The Left is finally facing the monster they created, and they're afraid.
This opens a new can of worms, and might well have Hollywood people trying to strike old missives. What studio looking to hire a director or cast for a major franchise or family friendly film won’t first look back into past social media posts, because this powderkeg was hiding in plain sight and Disney had to know about it because he was posting with regularity back then.
It reinforces yet again that social media is a fine place to wish people happy birthday and sell things, but the need to foist personal opinions that stick like napalm, is potentially a career ending decision. Gunn’s missives in particular were beyond the pale, and have no place in a family friendly environment that is the core of Disney values. It wasn’t like he was registering these opinions after his career changed dramatically with Guardians of the Galaxy. When he was directing films like Slither, nobody cared much what he thought. But his outspoken liberal opinions made him an easy target for anyone who keeps a record of such outrageous commentary, whether it was delivered sarcastically or not.
For those keeping score at home, with a simple Twitter search and help from a couple of amenable news outlets, the new Right has now made SJWs:
  • Rush to sanitize their online histories (Good luck. The internet is forever!)
  • Changed studio hiring practices to screen out potential ticking time bombs.
  • Made Leftists self-regulate their social media activity.
  • Forced SJWs to disavow one of their own.
  • Turned being outspokenly liberal into a potential career liability(!)
Dear feckless Buckleyite cowards: This is what winning looks like. I know you're unfamiliar with the concept since you're sexually attracted to losing. You could have stopped the conquest of our institutions at any time, but of course you didn't, because you were personally invested in failure. Instead, your entire legacy was just detonated by a couple of amateur journalist eBook merchants. *slow clap*

These upstarts just got a definite scumbag and likely pedophile fired in disgrace. That's a victory. No, we're not "too good" to win this way, and yes, this is "who we are": people who will do whatever it takes to wrest the freak parade from the levers of power.

We'll also create new works informed by truth and beauty to replace the nihilist dreck shoveled by our cultural usurpers.

  1. The very same losers applauding Roseanne losing her show are the same defending Gunn.

    This isn't a good look for them.

    1. That's exactly it. Everyone loses. Hypocrisy run rampant.

    2. Nobody concerned about the whole, "it was long ago, not recent like what Roseanne said" apparently has forgotten about what happened to Paula Deen, I guess. Will she get a round of apologies from these clowns?

    3. Look how they tried to make a moral equivalence between Gunn's hundreds of sick "jokes" and Roseanne's single joke, which the leftoids guffawed at when oxygen thieves like Bill Maher told it.

  2. I saw Gunn at a Tromadance film festival before Guardians was even announced. He sat on a panel with Ti West, who was fresh of the success of House of the Devil and was whooping the crowd of drunk indie film buffs into an anti-Hollywood froth. Gunn jumped in to object, arguing that the proper way was to do knuckle up, get in the system, and make good product for them, because it is in fact still possible to work things the way they were built to work in the studio system, if only you have the discipline. (Honorary boomer, that guy.) Seemed like an odd note to hit, at the time, but the crowd let him have his say and the panel moved past it.
    Later when Guardians came out I appreciated his point, and I thought hell, I guess the man's right. But in retrospect.... what a hypocrite! That poser married an actress from a popular network tv show, milked her connections for all they were worth, and despite making a big, money-losing debacle with Slither, he still had a sweet deal with Marvel about to vault him into the Hollywood Pantheon. It strikes you as terribly dishonest; some real Pied Piper stuff, to say that to a bunch of impressionable film kids leveraging their futures on careers making movies. Nobody in that room was going to marry Jenna Fisher and enjoy the sizeable advantages and second chances he did. Is he a pedo or just a spineless creep? I don't know. I don't care, TBQH. He's a ruinous influence either way.

    1. James Gunn: "...it is in fact still possible to work things the way they were built to work in the studio system, if only you're a pedophile and the studio has the goods on you."

      Fixed it for him.

  3. I have a sneaking suspicion that many of the people defending Gunn (besides the Shapiros and the Left) are simply Disney paypigs who like his movies.

    I think people are literally defending a (possible) pedophile and his disgusting actions because they liked Guardians of the Galaxy.

    1. "Fandom" is a poisonous antisocial mind-virus. I really do hope it's turning some kind of corner towards irrelevancy, because it's like literally establishing a religion around media-anointed brands and properties. I think its zombie worshippers will prove to be a problem of their own in years to come.

    2. Despite the best efforts of materialist utopians, you can't stamp out the human drive to worship something larger than ourselves.

      To their credit, our current globalist elites learned that lesson from the failure of Communism. They didn't outlaw the Church. Instead they incrementally marginalized its influence in the public square and pushed agitprop disguised as entertainment as a substitute.

      TL;DR You can't destroy human piety. You can only move it around. Many among the legions of [X] fandom have transferred their religious impulses to their favorite IP.

    3. Only to be deeply disillusioned by yet another failure of putting trust in man.
      Like Jacob who fought the angel and left with a limp, Reality is about give us an epic bitchslapping.

    4. Brian,

      You're on a roll with the double entendre titles. Gunn control is apropos on so many levels.

  4. “Sexually attracted to losing” ������

    Oh man, this all is so good. Is Michael Ian Black next? Patton Oswalt? Rian Johnson?

    Will Ben Shapiro rush to defend them? Is HE next?

    What a time to be alive.

    1. Shapiro will destroy himself by defending the indefensible. Contra Gunn, Ben will likely fade away rather than go down in flames. But get that popcorn ready, just in case I'm wrong.

    2. Shapiro's most likely move, which we must guard diligently against, will be to try the "How do you do, fellow MAGAmen?" play when the last #NeverTrump cucks are ridden out of town on a rail.

  5. “Sexually attracted to losing”...

    As the saying goes, like attracts like. Which is why we are dumping these losers for something younger and hotter.

    1. *nods*

      Guys like Buckley, Goldberg, and Shapiro staked their careers on being the guys who'd negotiate the Right's surrender.

      "The Left is unstoppable," they used to say. "Put us in charge, and we'll get you the best possible terms."

      No, thanks. Now that we've seen the Left fold like cheap lawn furniture when faced with their own tactics, the only outcome we'll accept is their utter defeat. If we keep this up, leftoids will be laughingstocks exiled to the fringe with Commies and the KKK.

    2. I look forward to the day when all the world’s commies are exiled to the fringe, since it feels like they are in charge of all the West’s institutions...for now.

      Delete
    3. They are, but they have to be sneaky about it. As long as Uncle Biff isn't turning to Aunt Ethel and saying, "The blood of the bourgeoisie should grease the wheels of the Revolution," Commies are still fringe.
