Well here we go again. Over the past few months I’ve made repeated mention of the entertainment industries continued pandering to the Social Justice Warrior crowd as of late. With a seemingly endless new stream of shows with obvious Leftist political bias now set to arrive on screens next year. These including the likes of a Black Lives Matter based show to an alternative history program depicting an all-Black American nation. Not content with simply creating fictional history however, now Netflix in partnership with the BBC have decided it’s time to start changing the real thing.
Picture for a moment in your mind, the great mythological Greek hero Achilles. A strong handsome armor clad warrior is likely what you imagine. Possibly with the face of Brad Pitt even. What you are most certainly not picturing however is someone of African descent filling the role of this important figure in Western Civilization. That hasn’t stopped the BBC and Netflix however from viewing their new show Troy: Fall of a City, as a chance to reeducate their viewers on just what the ancient Greek world really looked like. See for yourself here below, the new 2018 version of Achilles.
Now this move isn’t really all that surprising given the BBC’s own history with similar political pandering. This is the same Government sanctioned and tax payer funded network for example that is also producing a Donald Trump inspired White House game show next year.
The new Troy show does at least continue to highlight the hypocrisy of many on the Left. In that that it’s usually the same people who most loudly complain about cultural appropriation who than gleefully commit the same act as long as it only is used against White people. Such as with this new Achilles, where a classic Greek hero has been altered and changed to fit modern 2018 diversity standards. Hopefully at least the new actor taking on the role David Gyasi, has at least taken the time to learn how to pronounce and spell his Characters name. Unlike the unfortunate “college student” from this rather hilarious Wheel of Fortune clip.
