‘White Boy Summer’ Meme Denounced as Racist by Actual Racists

Usual suspects rattled by a silly marketing ploy.

Chet Hanks’ ‘White Boy Summer’ meme, which is essentially just a silly marketing ploy, is causing concern amongst leftists, many of whom are now claiming that the entire thing is a racist dog whistle that will embolden white supremacists.

The meme was launched last month by Chet Hanks, son of the Hollywood actor Tom Hanks, who told his Instagram followers in a video, “I just got this feeling man… it’s about to be a white boy summer.”

The meme is a twist of the Megan Thee Stallion song from 2019 Hot Girl Summer and Hanks immediately clarified that it has nothing to do with ethnicity.

“I’m not talking about Trump, Nascar-type white. I’m talking about me, (rappers) Jon B. Jack Harlow-type white boys, you know what I mean?” said Hanks.

He subsequently emphasized that he was trying to spread an anti-racist message, stating, “You know what’s not White Boy Summer… is having any ill will or prejudice towards anybody from a different background, race, walk of life than you.”

The rapper also laid out the “rules” for white boy summer, which included not harassing women, trying to stay sober and not getting in people’s faces with booze breath.

Despite his many clarifications, the usual suspects accused Hanks of racism anyway.

After he launched a line of merchandise featuring the words ‘White Boy Summer’, Hanks was accused of mimicking white supremacists because he used a Gothic-style font (yes in case you missed the memo, fonts are now racist too).

The claims were made despite Hanks wearing a ‘Stop Hate’ version of the merchandise in his official ‘White Boy Summer’ video (which primarily consists of the rapper dancing with twerking women, half of whom are black).

Left-wing newspaper the Guardian said the typography was “similar to the Fraktur fonts, which were used in Nazi Germany most prominently on the cover of Hitler’s Mein Kampf book.”

“Hmm unfortunately the merch looks aggressively racist,” said one Twitter user.

“Jesus. When I think of typefaces white people should avoid, anything remotely calligraphic/blackletter looking pops immediately to mind, especially if it’s going to include the word ‘White’,” added another.

Others said Hanks would attract support from the Proud Boys, a right-wing group that the media denounced as white supremacists despite it being led by a non-white person for years.

Guardian columnist Arwa Mahdawi is also worried that Hanks’ largely dopey exploits will fuel racial strife.

“After four years of Donald Trump emboldening white supremacists, I don’t think now is the time to be calling for a white boy summer,” she whined.

In reality, the fact that these people are so rattled by what is ostensibly a silly vacuous meme deployed to bolster a marketing gimmick tells you everything about the institutional anti-white hatred that now poisons the media and popular culture.

The people responsible for this divisive attitude are the actual racists.

Hanks can’t even refer to his own ethnicity in any other context than self-loathing and guilt without being accused of fueling racism.

Merely displaying a hint of relaxed confidence that he should be comfortable in his own skin while encouraging other races to feel the same is strictly forbidden by a society that mandates white people constantly engage themselves in moral self-flaggelation to atone for their supposed sins.

Netflix to Fire Another 150 Employees as Subscriber Base Continues to Decline

Wokeflix is going the way of CNN+.

Published

Streaming giant Netflix confirmed it was firing a further 150 employees in response to slowing revenue growth and a massive loss of subscribers.

“As we explained on earnings, our slowing revenue growth means we are also having to slow our cost growth as a company,” a Netflix representative told CNBC.

“So sadly, we are letting around 150 employees go today, mostly US-based. These changes are primarily driven by business needs rather than individual performance, which makes them especially tough as none of us want to say goodbye to such great colleagues. We’re working hard to support them through this very difficult transition.”

The new round of dismissals comes after Netflix fired an entire team of writers for the Tudum website, almost all of whom were “women of color.”

Netflix has lost over 200,000 subscribers this year and is set to hemorrhage another 2 million by the end of the year, while its share price has plummeted by 70 per cent since January.

Price hikes, the end of lockdown and increasing competition has badly impacted the company.

In addition to a worsening economic picture, Netflix has been plagued by its takeover by the woke mob, who relentlessly protested Dave Chapelle’s comedy special.

The decision to platform the 2020 movie Cuties, which sexualized underage girls, also had a negative impact on the company’s reputation.

Last month, Elon Musk asserted that Netflix embracing “the woke mind virus”‘ is making it “unwatchable”.

The tech giant wasted a whopping $75 million on signing up Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to make more preachy, woke content that no one will watch.

If things continue in the same vain, it might not be long before Netflix goes the same way as CNN+.

Oh no, how awful.

Romania Claims Eurovision Changed Their Vote to Give First Place to Ukraine

EBU replaced the votes of six different countries.

Published

Romanian broadcaster TVR has accused the European Broadcasting Union of assigning a different set of scores to the ones they provided, incorrectly giving the highest score to Ukraine, which went on to win the competition.

The Ukrainian band Kalush Orchestra easily won the competition, finishing on 631 points, with the United Kingdom in second place with 466 points.

However, despite the margin of victory, the official Romanian Eurovision representatives complained that the EBU ignored their vote to give Moldova first place and instead awarded it to Ukraine.

“We were surprised to discover that the result of the Romanian jury’s vote was not taken into account in the calculation of the final ranking,” said TVR in a statement. “The organizers assigned a different set of points to the participants of the final, on behalf of the jury of our country. We specify that the Romanian jury decided to give maximum score to the representatives of Moldova.”

Representatives of each country also normally appear on the live broadcast to announce their country’s voting results, but Romania’s Eda Marcus was nowhere to be seen.

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) responded by claiming they had noticed “irregular voting patterns” which “forced them to replace scores from six countries: Azerbaijan, Georgia, Montenegro, Poland, Romania and San Marino.”

“In order to comply with the voting instructions of the competition, the EBU collaborated with its voting partner to calculate a replacement aggregate result for each country concerned, both for the second semi-final and for the grand final (calculated on the basis of the results of other countries with a similar voting history),” they said in a statement.

In the final vote tally, neither Romania or Moldova awarded any points to each other, something that would never happen in reality.

TVR said Eurovision organizers had “replaced the jury score in Romania with a ‘substitute’ calculated in a non-transparent way,” and had not even informed them of what they were doing during the competition.

Although part of the vote is also down to the viewing public, the claims suggest that there may have been some chicanery behind the scenes to ensure Ukraine won the competition, thereby fulfilling a preset narrative to support ‘the current thing’.

The Eurovision Song Contest is notoriously political and has been beset by similar voting scandals in the past.

‘Family Sex Show’ Aimed at Kids Cancelled After Backlash

Production company claimed its staff received threats and abuse.

Published

A production called ‘The Family Sex Show’ aimed at children aged 5 and over that was described by the theatre company responsible as “an alternative to porn” has been cancelled after thousands of people signed a petition opposing it.

The company invited parents to bring their kids to the show, advertising that there would be full nudity and discussion of topics completely unsuitable for children.

The show was due to be performed at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory next month but that venue has become the second to bow out after a backlash.

Typically, the company is claiming the deluge of criticism they received included “unprecedented threats and abuse” from “extremists” and that this is why the event was called off.

A petition signed by over 38,000 people stated, “Children should not be de-desensitised to the sight of naked adult bodies or introduced to topics surrounding adult sexual pleasure which this production promotes and celebrates.”

“This is nothing more than a blatant and extremely concerning attempt to sexualise children prematurely and is abusive.”

The explicit show was funded by the Arts Council, which is in turn funded by the taxpayer.

The company claimed they had liased with “child safeguarding experts,” however, the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children had apparently never heard of it.

Susan Glaholm, a social worker in mental health and child protection, expressed her concerns about the show, noting, “I am compelled to say there is something seriously wrong in our society and culture if we accept that this is appropriate for young children to experience.”

No doubt the same leftists who assert that “cancel culture doesn’t exist” will uphold this as an example of it.

“It’s not OK when you do it!”
