Below is a very important report which I ask you to please share on your social media accounts.

A Portland theater has canceled an upcoming screening of the Arnold Schwarzenegger comedy “Kindergarten Cop” after people complained the movie sympathizes with law enforcement.

The Northwest Film Center had planned to show the 1990 film shot in Astoria “for its importance in Oregon filmmaking history” as part of its summer drive-in series at Zidell Yards, but it was called off after Portland author Lois Leveen fired off a series of angry tweets saying the depiction of police in school perpetuates systemic racism, The Willamette Week first reported.

“There’s nothing entertaining about the presence of police in schools, which feeds the ‘school-to-prison’ pipeline in which African American, Latinx, and other kids of color are criminalized rather than educated,” Ms. Leveen wrote.

DML: This is the destruction of America!  The caving in to these demands is toxic for the future of your children.

The article continues:

“Criminalizing of children increases dramatically when cops work in schools,” she argued. “Yes, KINDERGARTEN COP is only a movie. So are BIRTH OF A NATION and GONE WITH THE WIND, but we recognize films like those are not ‘good family fun.’ They are relics of how pop culture feeds racist assumptions. KINDERGARTEN COP romanticizes over-policing in the U.S.”

The Northwest Film Center responded to Ms. Leveen’s tweets, writing that it would instead show a second screening of “John Lewis: Good Trouble” in honor of late congressman, after the first screening scheduled for Aug. 7 sold out.

DML SAYS: John Lewis was an activist turned elitist punk.

  1. It’s a freaking movie made 30 years ago. People need to get over there self. One person complains to cause trouble and the Theater caves and removes it. What a wussy business, why don’t you just close your doors? I wouldn’t cave I wouldnt share the movie. Who cares about 1 persons views. If you don’t like it don’t watch it

  2. So sad—sitting here listening to all these people who are so afraid to say enough is enough. I just find all this censorship and the pretending that they are “ woke” by the media and all involved disgusting. Take care of ones own-be kind to your neighbors and neighborhood. Just like always and we will be fine. Media used to be a source of informative information, thought provoking narratives and entertainment. Now it’s nothing but a joke. A very sad joke. Excuse me while I go watch Kindergarten Cop—

    • When did it become the norm to be so critical? When did everyone all of a sudden look for ways to be so offended? I’m deeply offended by the loss of things i found entertaining. I’m offended by the crap that promotes todays attitudes and forces everyone to accept things that do not seem normal. I’m offended when i see memes that state pedofillia is another sexual preference and is presented in a way that pushes for it to be accepted! I was offended when the 10 commandments were abolished. To be honest, i’m offended every time something good is taken away and replaced by ugly ideas. I think its very unfair that i have to lose things because someone has and agenda and seems to get their way!

  3. Why are millions of us allowing these over bloated self indulgent morons to rule the rest of us . Come on people Wake up . They have lied about the virus . If they didn’t. They would not need to inflate the numbers with all medical problems. They are go controlling the way we breath and even being able to just live our lives . Going outside of your home has even led to gestapo tactics. Get up and wake up before we all die being used as the fools they think we are. I am too old to let a wet nosed brat tell me how to breath or what to watch

    • You are so right! When are the conservatives in power going to fight?? Stop being controlled by the liberal left. People walk around like they are in a trance dutifully wearing these masks like good little sheep. Yes wake up we are being played!

  4. I agree. Caving to every petty demand of people just LOOKING for some place to find fault is not only demoralizing, but a dangerous precedent to set for our children.

  5. You can’t make this up. This is the stupidest crap. Every day I think I’ve heard it all and bam! Something even more stupid.

  6. Wouldn’t over policing be this very action? Is this not the actions of the “police” state. I never comment but this is so perfectly stupid I felt compelled.

    • You are so right on here. I don’t understand how people can’t see what’s going on. This is why President Trump needs another 4 years also why we need the house and Senate back. This crap needs to stop.

  7. Start playing it in every empty parking lot on the side of a building !! Time to revolt !!! Take the kiddos out with some popcorn, let’s go !!! Let’s not allow these idiots to win anymore. The first time was too much !

  8. Referring to Gone with the Wind as a relics of how pop culture feeds racist assumptions. The movie released in 1939. Umm how is it a part of “pop culture” when the movie is 81 years old. Goes to prove some people should think about what they say before entering foot in mouth. SMH

    • But you can’t say that because its racist, but BLM say nothing about the killings of black people including small children, all by other blacks…..this is going on in every
      Major city run by demorats…..

  9. I think its because of the line.. Boys have a Penis Girls have a Vagina.. only 2 sees and that messes with the liberals..
