You Won’t Believe Who Violent-Movie Director Spike Lee Blames For The Violence In America…

Wait, aren't you a producer of violent movies...


Spike Lee, a movie director, has apparently found the reason for all the violence in America.


“This country was founded on violence,” Lee told TheWrap. “Africans were brought here, to this land, and then the genocide of Native Americans, that’s the foundation upon which this country was built. It’s simple, not taught in schools. We’re taught some other stuff, and particularly, how we’re taught is through the media. And as African Americans, we were taught how barbaric Africa was, with the Tarzan movies and whatnot, and the savages of the Native Americans in the many, many John Ford, John Wayne films.”

Lee also thinks it’s only getting worse.


“And the NRA is responsible for it,” he said. “These video games are not helping either.”

Ironically, Lee’s most celebrated film, the 1989 drama Do the Right Thing, was not only racially charged, but also was littered with intense violence. His latest film, Oldboy (the 2013 remake of a South Korean film), contained a steady stream of violence to perpetuate the narrative.

Is Spike Lee on to something? Do you think he’s figured it out? Your turn to weigh in…

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

Obviously whites didn't go far enough in the founding.  There were still Indians breathing when we went from sea to shining sea and we didn't send the emancipated slaves back to Africa.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
