8 Movies That Inspired Online Protests

"Boycott Star Wars 7 because it is anti-white propaganda!"

“You can always find an issue in a movie,” says Danny Trejo. “I always wondered, what was Snow White really doing with those Seven Dwarves that made them head off in the morning whistling so happily? Was she freaky for little people?”

Even if she was, Snow White went about her business in what commentators now call “a more innocent time”, where movies were movies and the only crackpots who found coded messages in them were academics. Alas, the social media generation would probably give Snow White her own hashtag, #Freaky4Dwarves.

Mining an existing movie for comedy purposes is one thing, but don’t discount the notion that somebody somewhere is taking the idea at face value and now genuinely believes Snow White And The Seven Dwarves to be an impassioned defence of “alternative lifestyles.”

Expect followers to call for a boycott of Disney and other Israeli-funded companies who encourage SJW terrorism (which is nearly as bad as Islamic terrorism) while empowering Judaism and the Anti-White Movement. We need to track down these domestic terrorists supporting this Zionist propaganda, they’ll say, and deport them to North Korea.

Sound ludicrous, doesn’t it?

You ain’t seen nothing yet.

What They Said: “Marvel is a company that advocates for left wing ideologies and causes,” claimed The Council Of Concerned Citizens.

“Marvel has viciously attacked the Tea Party movement, conservatives and European heritage. Now they have taken it one further, casting a black man as a Norse deity in their new movie Thor. Marvel has inserted social engineering into European mythology.”

The group, staunch opponents of inter-racial marriage and gay rights, subsequently set up a website (since removed) calling for a boycott. Meanwhile, an amused Idris Elba pointed out that nobody had a problem watching a guy whose hammer flies to him when he clicks his fingers. “That’s okay,” he said, “but the colour of my skin is wrong?”

What Happened: Don’t remember the boycott? Didn’t think so. It certainly didn’t hurt Thor at the box office, with the $150 million movie taking $449 million worldwide. Two years later, Thor: The Dark World did even better, so it seems like Elba is here to stay.
