Spike Lee: Hollywood hatemonger

Race hustler Spike Lee is at it again, this time stoking the flames of racial tension in the tragic death of the Florida teenager, Trayvon Martin.

Lee took to Twitter on Friday urging his followers to repost George Zimmerman’s address, the community watch volunteer who shot Martin last month after a struggle where Zimmerman was allegedly attacked by the 17-year-old.

Lee’s announcing the home address on Twitter to his 250,000 followers had the intended response, as Lee supporters replied with a slew of death threats toward Zimmerman including “Dead,” “Let’s go smash this n*#gga,” and “Let’s turn up the heat on his b*tch ass.”

It may prove difficult for Lee, however, to fit the shooting neatly into his simple “black-white” view of the world because Zimmerman happens to be Hispanic.

Regardless, Spike Lee’s history of racially incendiary remarks and flat-out racism, as I chronicle in Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama’s Biggest Backers, should instantaneously discredit him from feigning outrage over any type of racial bias. Moreover, as Barack Obama foolishly inserts himself into the Martin death and turns it into a lecture to America about race relations, the president has no problem associating himself with the bigot filmmaker.

Upon visiting South Africa in the early 90s, Spike Lee told London’s Guardian newspaper that “I seriously wanted to pick up a gun and shoot whites. The only way to resolve matters is by bloodshed.” And if we’re thinking of chalking that crazy remark up to Lee being carried away in his early 30s, not so fast. Flash forward to the present and we can see that Spike Lee has never met a racial metaphor or racist statement he didn’t like to use.

Lee saw Obama’s triumph in the Democrat primary as a chance to move beyond “massuh Clinton.” As Spike put it, “The Clintons, man, they would lie on a stack of Bibles…I voted for Clinton twice, but that’s over with. These old black politicians say, ‘Ooh, Massuh Clinton was good to us, massuh hired a lot of us, massuh was good!’ Hoo! Charlie Rangel, David Dinkins—they have to understand this is a new day.”

Of course, Lee has no use to Republican blacks including Justice Clarence Thomas and Gen. Colin Powell, both of whom he accuses of “think[ing] like whites.” Nor does he have any love for successful black moviemakers like Tyler Perry who he chided for producing “coonery and buffoonery.” Spike’s beef with Perry seems to originate in the fact that Perry is doing something Lee has seemed incapable of doing over the last decade—creating movies that actually make money and draw a crowd.

Spike Lee has even lashed out at Eddie Murphy, insinuating that he was a race traitor and Uncle Tom for selling out to a movie business dominated by white interests, as well as African American actors Ving Rhames and Cuba Gooding Jr. for behaving in a “servile” way.

And as I point out in Hollywood Hypocrites, Spike Lee despises interracial marriage, a stance that must have been a source for considerable embarrassment when his dad, jazz musician Bill Lee, wed a Jewish white woman.

Bottom line: Spike Lee has said a boatload of deplorable things over the decades, and yet Obama doesn’t care. In fact, Obama and Spike are tight. According to Lee, Obama told him that the first movie he ever took Michelle Obama to see was Spike Lee’s movie Do the Right Thing. “I’m riding my man Obama. I think he’s a visionary. Actually, Barack told me the first date he took Michelle to was Do the Right Thing. I said, ‘Thank God I made it. Otherwise you would have taken her to Soul Man.’ Michelle would have been like, ‘What’s wrong with this brother?’ ”

Spike also hosts star-studded celebrity events for Obama, fundraisers that rake in more than a million in one evening.

What happened to Trayvon Martin is awful. A young boy had his life cut short. But investigators don’t know if the shooting was racially-motivated. And neither does Obama. So before the president prematurely injects race into a deadly shooting, perhaps he should do some “soul searching” of his own and question why he proudly breaks bread with a Hollywood hatemonger like Spike Lee.

    Someone have Spike Lee get us the addresses of the two thugs that set the ‘white boy’ on fire. Then have him turn over the addresses of the idiotic black panthers and the degenerate viper Farrakhan. These people are threatening violence to others and should be stopped before it actually occurs. If everyone would cough up some money, we could surely place a bounty on their heads, too. Maybe a nice public lynching would be in order.

    When the Spike Channel first started, Spike Lee threatened to sue, saying
    they used his name…
    They settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.

  • calmo

    I see that Treyvon Martin — purportedly a poster boy of clean, upright adolescence — and his friends call each other “nigga” on facebook.  If nice black boys are doing this, then why does any instance of a white person calling a black person a “nigga” get turned into an international incident where the blacks scream racism and abuse as though it were the most heinous crime on the books?  Anyone care to comment?

    So sick and tired of this crap.  We see the true Racist are spike pee NA**A**CP,  Al Sharpnun-Jesse the sewer JackA**son.  These people were born haters with a chip on their shoulder and everyone owes them aliving. They are show boater- CARPET BAGGERS.They are common  head lice. The draggs of modern social cancer. They eat away at common sense.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t it spike who made the the comment that he
    was sick of hearing so much about Larry Bird, and  if Bird was black he would
    be considered just another player. He must have been right because he  has front
    row seats for the Knicks and I’m sure that qualifies him to make such a comment.

  • dapcat

    I would vehemently argue against those that claim that there is race baiting going on with this case. I would argue that there is more likely idiot baiting going on. A violent incident happens, the drive by media doesn’t tell or investigate the entire story thus jumping to conclusions, causing a number of hateful ignorant people to also jump to conclusions without all the facts and demanding that even more violence take place. Thus the light of truth has been shone on the idiots since they took the bait and have all  been seen as what they truly are, hateful morally bankrupt individuals that want to be the judge and jury.  So thank you Al Sharpton, the New old Black Panthers, Spike Lee, and Jessie Jackson because once again you’ve shown us all who you really are…………..by taking the bait.

    The more facts that come out the worse Obama looks; the only thing missing is Sharpton telling the mob to go out a and get the first “Taco dealer” they can find, just like he told the mob to go out and get the first “Jewlry dealer” they could find so they went out and killed the nearest Jew.

    I’ve been thinking about this for a couple of hours and don’t have it completely worked out, but will throw a few things at you:

    1. Read “Mau-Mauing the Flack Catchers” by Tom Wolfe
    2. Read “There is a Logic Behind Racial Profiling” by Walter Williams at Investors Business Daily.
    3. Read “Rules for Radicals” by Saul Alinsky.
    4. Read Michelle Obama’s Master’s thesis.
    5. Read “Do as I Say (Not As I Do)” by Peter Schweizer.
    6. Read “Uncle Sam’s Plantation” by Star Parker.
    7. Consider people who have succumbed to intimidation for using the word, “niggardly” and recently the phrase “chink in the armor”. Political Rectitude should be a felony and those who use it to bludgeon those who say the emperor is naked should be caned in public.

    People are generally too polite to defend themselves and will allow themselves to be intimidated by being called “racist” by racists rather than defend their reasonable and logical positions. It’s long past time to stand up and call these people on their bullying and hypocrisy and defend reason and logic until it prevails.

    Liberal guilt over slavery is a load of crap. That was a long time ago. I never owned slaves nor did any of my ancestors. Blacks were captured by other blacks, sold to Arabs to be transported and sold to whites as slaves. Were they not, they would not have gotten here where they ultimately, through several generations, created a large and successful middle class and contributed immeasurably to the character and greatness of the country formerly known as the “Shining City on a Hill”. Were all the Blacks never brought here, we’d have been just like Europe long ago. As it is, if we keep going in the direction Obama is taking us, we’ll be just like Europe by 2016.

    According to gun nuts, Martin should have been carrying a gun.  Oh wait, the gun lobby wants everyone to be armed all the times except for black people. 

  • StanW

    You are a LIAR, Wil.

    It was the Democrats that wanted blacks disarmed. The NRA wants all responsible citizens to own guns, AS IS OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT!

     Too bad Zimmerman did not have a (drop gun) on him. 
    He would be home free. But, I guess rolling on the grass and scratching himself up, that might get him off. We’ll see. 

  • StanW

    Afternoon, LD.

    Not sure if you are following my stalker on Disqus, but Vega has retreated back to RWN and is telling the same lies there that we slammed him for here.

    Not only that, he is demanding proof from posters there that we have already given him.

    If you’d like, you can go over there and kick him around, but you run the risk of being banned by the spineless owner!

  • StanW

    So you are a mind reader now? Or were you actually at the scene and saw Zimmerman do this?

    Or most likely you are LYING!!!

  • 1LonesomeDove1

    He’s back over here still saying that Hispanic isn’t a race.

  • RichWIowa

     Considering that there are witness(es) to Martin beating Zimmerman, and that the facts support the shooting being self-defense, legally and practically, it wouldn’t matter what else Zimmerman had done.  The police sent him home for one reason, and one only, the obvious facts at the scene were 100% consistent with his version of the story.  If there had been any question whatsoever, Zimmerman would have gone to jail.  The fact that he didn’t proves beyond a reasonable doubt that there was no reasonable doubt that night.  As for “scratching himself up”, his injuries were obviously consistent with being punched and beaten.  Why is it that the facts are so difficult for racists to accept?

  • BrennusBains

     Spike Lee is directing a new film based on Trayvon’s life.

    Titled “Goodie Goodie, I’m a Gangsta in a Hoodie”. Will star Joe Biden as the ‘dumb white cracker’ with hair plugs, Barney Frank as Vice Principal Fudgepacker, and Nancy Pelosi as ‘the scary faced crack hoe down the street’.

    Sequel to be called “Do the White Thing” starring Louis Farrakhan as a half-white calypso singer treated as a sissy in his youth who runs a pork store for his cousin Barack. Complicated plot line but great music.

    Ordinarily, I avoid ad hominems.

    Even in your case, I will restrain myself.

    I’ll just say to you:

    After you’ve finished reading Harriet Beecher Stowe, read George Washington’s correspondence about how he was running up debt paying for food and maintenance for 2/3 of his “slaves” who didn’t do a damn thing, except eat and crap, either because they were too old, too young, or too lazy.

    Contemplate the fact that the “Father of our Country” knew that slavery, as practiced in America, was an economic looser, because of the “free-loader” problem. That’s why he manumitted as many of them as he could in his will.

    Compare Washington’s cri de coeur about slavery with the fate of the blacks who ended up on French, Spanish, & Portuguese sugar fields in the Caribbean, and Central & South America.

    You should read more, and talk less. That’s as far as I’ll go with the ad hominem in your case.

    Just because Washington couldn’t pay for his slaves’ “social safety net,” does that mean that I should have to support one for the distant descendants of his slaves, eh?

    I’ll be done with you by asking two simple questions:

    If you had been a black captured by another tribe of blacks in Africa in the 17th Century and sent into slavery in the “New World,” would you prefer to have been sent to Haiti or Virginia?

    Assuming you survived the ordeal, would your descendants be better off in Virginia or Haiti, the world’s first “black-ruled republic?”

    Thanks. I’m 66 years old and not quite as quick as I used to be, physically or mentally, so I always try to make sure my brain is up to proper RPM before engaging my mouth/pen/keyboard. Like an old folk singer I knew back in Chicago used to say, “The older I get, the better I was”.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_HV4XRDQ5FM4O2HMS2D3OPV44QM Neal

    Thanks. You’re not doing too badly yourself. I spend about 1000hours/year researching online and reading books. I stopped watching TV news on 31 October 2008 which improved my blood pressure and I don’t listen to any radio new or talk shows. Even though it’s difficult sorting the wheat from the chaff in what’s written, at least there’s no multi-media noise and sensationalism.

    Welcome home brother. I too participated in the ’68 Tet Offensive.

    Yo Tetvet,

    You are all over this! Nice to have company in the battle to preserve and present truth, facts and evidence in defense of the Republic. Must have been something in the water over there that made us so smart, eh?

    Interesting how the Left, which is supposed to be championing the cause of “oppressed minorities”, is responsible for the high number of abortions in Black communities via Planned Parenthood. What will they use for their Cause Célèbre when they reduce the number of locked in voters on Uncle Sam’s Plantation? Can they really be so stupid as to be purposely sabotaging themselves? One can only hope, eh?

    Spook Lee.  ‘Nuff said.

  • ullungdo

    So Spike Lee hates a murderer and that makes him a racist.  On the other hand, Mr. Mattera hates Spike Lee.  So, by his own standards, he is a racist.  By Mr. Mattera’s standards, someone who kills an unarmed black child walking in his own neighborhood (60 feet from his front door!) is a person to be admired, while anyone who finds this conduct the least bit wrong and reprehensible is a racist.  Thank goodness, I don’t live anywhere near either Mr. Mattera or Mr. Zimmerman.

  • GodsavethePeasants

    Moron.  Did you read the article?  Spike Lee hates all whiteys and probably Hispanics, such as the  ‘white Hispanic’ Zimmerman.  Your moronic leftist mantra spin on the story also does not change the facts of the shooting.  Hope a 6’3′ ‘child’ pounds your azz into the pavement, you dirt bag commie.  No one in this is to be admired, especially little mindless leftist robots like you and race pimps like Al, Jesse, and the Omnipotent O.

  • WuTang217

    Spike Lee is racist, arrogant, self-righteous, hypocritical, condescending, and pretentious. Every single quality I despise.. is in him….. I hate him soooooooo much.
