    Snowflakes trying to force Kent film festival to axe charity screening of Zulu because it's 'racist' | Daily Mail Online

    Snowflake campaigners are blasted for trying to force a film festival to axe charity screening of Zulu because they think the 1964 war epic is racist
    War great, which stars Michael Caine, to air at Folkestone Silver Screen Cinema
    Pop-up film festival in Kent aims to raise money for armed forces charity SSAFA
    Fickle group of 28 people said 55-year-old movie is filled with 'racial overtones'
    But locals have called the campaigners 'ridiculous' and said it's 'PC gone mad'

    If snowflakes try to force anything, why not just warm them up a bit? And Zulu is not filled with "racist overtones", it's explciitly, right in your face racist, just like the book Little Black Sambo I read as a kid.


    Jam anyone?
    Boomers tend to believe in “freedom of speech”, which is a fascist concept used to spread hateful ideas.Given that hate speech is not possible without free speech, any defence of free speech is a form of hate speech. - Titania McGrath

    11 VCs, these are men recognised for a level of bravery normal people will never know.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Rorke%27s_Drift

    Just over 150 British and colonial troops successfully defended the garrison against an intense assault by 3,000 to 4,000 Zulu warriors. The massive but piecemeal[9] Zulu attacks on Rorke's Drift came very close to defeating the much smaller garrison, but were ultimately repelled. Eleven Victoria Crosses were awarded to the defenders, along with a number of other decorations and honours.

    obviously we shouldn't of been there, they would have fared so much better if the Germans, French or Belgians had been in charge!

    sit in the circle line reading that - i dare you
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
