Come on, Spike Lee.
Inform us what you actually think of Donald Trump.
Stop beating around the bush, will ya ?!?
The famous director provided a passionate speech this past Sunday at the 86 th yearly New york city Film Critics Circle Awards.
Due to the extraordinary nature of all that’s been happening in America for the previous a number of months, Lee couldn’t help however focus on a program that method way beyond Hollywood and the cinema.
It didn’t assist matters, either, that Lee shot his approval speech on January 6, “an extremely unfortunate day in the history of America,” as he decribed it, since that’s when Donald Trump advocates stormed the U.S. Capitol.
The 45 th President has given that left workplace, and likewise been impeached for the second time.
He incited an insurrection.
He continually lied about a rigged election and overturned democracy at every opportunity and made it his mission to bring the nation down together with him.
Lee could not neglect all these actions in his speech.
” You understand what, we are residing in a very severe time in America. Everybody as true Americans have to truly consider what is very important,” said Lee.
There’s no other way possible to precede the iPhone and thank you people without informing you what’s in my heart and soul as a descendent of servants who assisted build this nation.”
Lee, of course, has actually made a living by delving directly into the topic of race in almost all his films.
He speaks from experience here.
” The whole world is making fun of the United States, the so-called cradle of democracy,” Lee included.
And then he utter the contrast that has caused the star’s remarks to go viral.
” We’re at the crossroads now. And everyone please be safe, this is not a game. These individuals got weapons with ammo,” said Lee.
” This president, President Agent Orange, will go down in history with the similarity Hitler.
” These people, all his boys, they are decreasing on the wrong side of history.”
Is it totally ridiculous to compare Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler?
On one hand, yes … since the previous Commander-in-Chief is not directly responsible for the extermination of six million individuals.
However here’s the important things. Here’s the question you should consider, and we do not ask it in jest or out of sarcasm.
The concern is as follows:
If Donald Trump might have had millions of Americans eliminated so that he would have remained in power, do you think he would have been reluctant to do so.
Seriously, you guys.
For even one second, if he thought he could have gotten away with it, do you believe Trump would have been reluctant at all about any death in exchange for his victory?
Think of it.
