Machete Race War Accusations Made Again by Alex Jones [Most racist film since Birth of a Nation?]
Associated Content ^ | September 6, 2010 | Robert Dougherty

Machete race war accusations are a unique subplot for the new movie. In Machete, race war breaks out between illegal immigrants and white people, although the Machete race war is generally regarded as satire. After all, since this is a "Mex-plotation" movie made by grindhouse devotee Robert Rodriguez, most critics and audience members are unlikely to take it seriously. The whole point of movies like this is to play up extremes for maximum violence, gore and action. But in other circles, the idea of a Machete race war is not to be taken lightly.

Alex Jones, the leading source for conspiracy theories on the Internet, has called the film a "racist bloodbath" and accused producers of lying about it. Back in May, Jones got a copy of the script and laid into it for being racist, and promoting all-out war against anyone who opposed illegal immigration of any kind.

After that initial report, Machete race war accusations were derided by Robert Rodriguez, who said that the worst of it wouldn't be in the final cut. However, nearly everyone who's seen the movie has noted that all of the white characters are extremist villains, and those against illegal immigration all meet gory ends.

With that, Machete race war comments have been made again by Jones, who says that everything he brought up in May did make it into the movie. He again claims that the film promotes "one-sided approval of Hispanic revenge killings," and said that this is the most openly racist film since Birth of a Nation.

I hope no one paid Robert anything to write this dreck. But to the subject at hand: If the tables were turned, wouldn't there be a huge outcry from the MSM and race hustlers?

If illegals bring machetes to a gun fight they deserve whatever they get.

I don’t think the illegals are stupid enough to actually try a machete race war.

A couple friends and I went to see Machete yesterday. In the spirit of the movie, we bought tickets to see “The Expendables” and then snuck into Machete. Machete really sucked though, and I wish that I’d seen the Expendables again.

They're saving it for the sequel, "Degreaser".

If you are serious....I think they are! I think they are so GD stupid as to think muslim boy husein will ride to their rescue on one of his pet goats, (well, the wookie HAS been out of dodge on vaycay a bit recently), if it comes to that. plus they are so hopped up on their GD drugs.....I do not give those illegal savages a bit of credit for brains or intelligence whatsoever. once CV2 starts up you will see just how embolded these mexican illegal bastards are.

No doubt. I was trying to be offensive without sounding offensive.

Did it work?

Uh, the war is underway. We have dead white teenagers right here in Paradise, you know?

Killed by illegals with knives, guns and...machetes.

No sensationalism. No national news coverage. Just a quick cover up, maybe a couple of arrests and then...back to Mexicans as "victims of the evil whitey" across the airwaves.

The fact that you don't hear about it means the intimidation is working. But it's there. For real.

Well whether most people take it seriously or not is rather besides the point because the risk is that only ONE person has to take it seriously in order for a tragedy to occur. If only one person sees it as a call to arms & attacks or kills a “Gringo” than that would be one too many - but the movie is so incendiary that it could provoke more than a few into violent action against the perceived “oppressor”. Furthermore: I did not realize that reading declassified government documents & white papers on live radio air made one a conspiracy theorist & I guess fluoride & vaccines are not dangerous either. Well live & learn.

I saw the movie today with my niece. It was schlock in the typical Rodriguez/Tarantino genre. But it was fun to watch and the trailers were hysterica, my favorite being “Hobo with a Shotgun.” Also the 5 top machete kills of all time was pretty cool.

Don’t read anything into it. It was entertainment, pretty bad, but no worse than going to a Detroit Lions game.

Imagine if white people made a movie showing Mexicans as violent killers and hate mongers/ what would happen? The left hasn’t forgiven D.W. Griffith for Birth of a Nation.

I can't blame anybody for trying to make a buck, but the problem arises when he qualifies for tax subsidies from Texas taxpayers,......... of which I am one. You have to know some dishwasher somewhere is going to eat the worm and think he can annex up to Waco or something. There will be trouble somewhere just on the principle of the thing. Course, one could say, there already is trouble somewhere over this even without a corny movie.

Do you think “Birth of a Nation” should have been banned or anything? It certainly encouraged the rebirth of the KKK etc - I remember reading the 20th c. kkk described as basically a Birth of a Nation fanclub of sorts.

I’m not sure, really, I’m just wondering what exactly you think should be done about this sort of film...I’m not sure myself.

And we know that another fiction movie by another nutcase had many fools taking it too seriously, as evidenced by the Discovery Channel situation last week.

OK... i just watched that POS online and if there was any justice in the world, ANYBODY in that waste of time would Never, EVER, work in hollyweird again.

it is without a doubt one of the worst movies i have ever seen.

except for Trejo, who finally got to star in a star studded/big budget movie and he plays it to the hilt as the psycho, the rest of them, a pox on all of them
