Hidden Figures

1,135 words

Hidden Figures, a.k.a., We Wuz Astronautz, tells the story of three black women who worked at NASA in 1961 struggling for equal rights both as blacks and as women. The movie tells us that it is “based on true events,” and the three women — mathematician Katherine Johnson, computer programmer Dorothy Vaughan, and engineer Mary Jackson — actually did exist. But it is not clear if any of the struggles and achievements depicted actually happened, or if they are just-so stories. The moral of the movie, however, is quite clear: three unsung black women played an essential role in the US space program. 

Now hold on just a minute. European man’s conquest of space is one of our greatest achievements. So of course the Left wants to find or create non-whites who contributed to the process. It is called Afrocentric “cultural appropriation.” “Kangz,” for short.

Given that intelligence is distributed on bell curves, even though African blacks have an average IQ of 70 and African-American blacks — many of whom have a significant percentage of white ancestry — have an average IQ of 85, there will always be some outliers: extremely intelligent and extremely stupid blacks. And in a society with some extremely intelligent blacks, they can of course be employed in projects like the space program. This was particularly the case in the US during the Cold War, which sought to mobilize all available talent in the race against the Soviets.

But that does not change the fact that the conquest of space was a white achievement. It could have been done without any blacks, and left to their own devices, blacks never created the wheel, much less conquered space.

Of course, the true unsung heroes of the American space program were not African Americans, or Americans at all. They were German Nazi rocket scientists. But in Hidden Figures, the only foreign accent belongs to Dr. Zelinsky, who informs us that he is a Polish Jew who survived a Nazi concentration camp. Naturally, he encourages one of the black women, Mary Jackson, to pursue an engineering degree. If you were a “white male,” he asks, would you pursue a degree? If she were a “white male,” she replies, she’d already have one.

Not only were blacks not essential to the space program, they were actually overwhelmingly hostile to it. No sooner had Americans landed on the moon in 1969, than blacks and their Jewish and liberal allies were calling for an end to the space program and a new focus on minority uplift. Gil Scott-Heron even blamed the rent hike on his rat-infested apartment on “Whitey on the Moon.”

Unfortunately, while it is possible for white men to conquer space, it is not possible to make blacks our equals. More than 40 years and trillions of dollars later, rats are still biting black children, but whitey has not been on the moon since 1972.

Hidden Figures basically plays like a made-for-cable-TV movie, for one of those channels that idle housewives and welfare queens watch during the daytime. It is slow-paced, light on science and math, and full of soap-operatic domestic and romantic interludes, montages set to vintage R&B music, and similar filler. The acting throughout is effective but unremarkable.

The message to whites is: black people are just like us, only sassy. Thus doing away with segregation and traditional gender roles will unleash talents and creativity that will lead us to a better society.

But it didn’t really work out that way. And actually Hidden Figures subtly undermines its pro-Civil Rights agenda through its portrayal of black life under segregation. Yes, there are the standard indignities of separate toilets and drinking fountains. But blacks are portrayed as well-dressed and well-mannered, with mostly intact families — a far cry from liberated blacks today. For instance, the blushing and decorous courtship of Katherine and her future husband seems like something out of a Jane Austen novel. It bears absolutely no resemblance to the booty-twerking, muh-diking Negroes of today.

But what of the fate of talented blacks languishing under segregation? Well, all the events of the movie took place before the Civil Rights Act, didn’t they?

Katherine Johnson (born Coleman)

Let’s focus on the central character, Katherine, played by Taraji Henson. Katherine Coleman was a genuine mathematical prodigy. She also has so much white ancestry that she has blue eyes (meaning white ancestors on both sides) and a fair enough complexion to pass as white. Katherine’s intellectual gifts were recognized at an early age, and she was given an appropriate education. She graduated from high school at the age of 14 and from college at age 18. Because of her talent, she was the first black woman admitted to the graduate school of West Virginia University in 1939, which she quit to start a family. In 1953, she was hired by the precursor of NASA and worked there the rest of her career.

Segregation did not impede the rise of these women, provided they were plucky enough to persevere. But segregation did impede the fall of the vast majority of blacks, who through the subtle and not-so-subtle pressure to conform to white behavioral norms (the hated “white supremacy” system) were far more decent, decorous, and law-abiding than blacks today. They were probably even happier.

But they were not “free.” Specifically, they were not free to be themselves, to create a society that felt natural to them. They were being oppressed by white cultural norms. And when all that oppression was relaxed, the vast majority of black America went straight to hell.

Hidden Figures is a feast for the fantasies of white liberals, who somehow overlook the fact that the black community portrayed in the movie was the product of segregation, not Civil Rights, and the blacks who terrify them today are the products of Civil Rights, not white racism. To the extent that black viewers of Hidden Figures feel nostalgia for the communal life it portrays, they too are experiencing nostalgia for segregation.

Hidden Figures isn’t a particularly good movie, even as pro-black propaganda. But that has not stopped mostly white and Jewish liberals from hailing it as a work of genius, setting off a virtue-signalling spiral that is as hard to stop as an ovation for Comrade Stalin. There’s actually a whole Wikipedia page for the accolades. It is even in the running for an Academy Awards Best Picture nomination. Surely, the Nobel Peace Prize cannot be far behind.

If Hidden Figures sounds like your kind of movie, you have blundered into the wrong website. But no need to spend your time and money seeing it in the theater, as you are going to spend the rest of your life having this dry, insipid turkey of a film served up for free on every channel you flip to. We might have to go back to space, just to escape it.

    When I first heard about this junk I knew immediately that it was going to be complete fiction fabricated by Marxists for the purpose of engendering even more hatred for accomplished whites and even more glorification of insignificant non-whites. Thank you for providing confirmation and the details of yet another Hollywood lie.

That’s just sad that they put a black woman to portray her so every ghetto momma in the country and blacks the world over can say “see,we invented everythang and sheeeit,whitey beez stealinz our knowledge and sheeit!This garbage has to stop.They are actually having field trips from schools across the country to go see this movie.Especially in black neighborhoods they are using money that is supposed to be spent on their schools to take their ghetto hoodlums to see this movie.That is why the box office numbers are thru the roof every week.Let the brainwashing begin.

    To Mr. Moreland and Mr. Mr. Bobby, and all White Nationalists here on this great platform:

    I very much agree with your views and share your feeling. When you talked about how factually great America was in scientific invention, in creating all the wonderful stuff, in going to the moon, in building all the vast and advanced infrastructure. in engaging in splendid physical (not social) engineering backed by a mostly White, inquisitive, diligent and aspiring public, and lamenting the fact that all those wonders and glories are gone now, replaced by rampant minority-pandering, social-engineering and social distribution in the civil rights movement, “Great Society” and onward, resulting in a general state of malaise, of listlessness, lethargy and impotence, all these resonate with me deeply and touched my heart string despite I am not an American citizen nor a White person myself, but as a conscious and convinced supporter and advocate of White Nationalism. I felt sincerely proud and nostalgic of the lost golden days of America, the White America of pre-1970s, while deeply and viscerally saddened to see the miserable reality, which chilled my blood and then boiled it up with righteous and pugnacious indignation. Let me explain:

    As you already indicated in your comments, the minority rights-baiting and social engineering adopted by the ruling elites of America in particular and the whole West in general sustained and intensified by erosive, nation-wrecking and self-defeating mantras of political correctness, multiculturalism and diversity has brought about a perniciously and increasingly multi-racial, multi-ethnic and multicultural social reality that is characterized as little cohesiveness, more divisiveness and bickering and a widespread state of moroseness and morbidity, which have tremendously sapped America’s energy, vitality and creativity. As a further and complementary statement of yours, I would like to highlight and accentuate the following two facts which I believe are primary causes as well as symptoms the current illness of America and the West at large.

    First, the mosaic society we found ourselves in. The old (now ruefully cracked) melting-pot society, in its genuine sense, functioned well admittedly, though which is still not what the White nationalists desired eventually. It worked because first, the non-White populations are small in size and they were encouraged, guided and actually forced by social, economic and cultural conditions to assimilate into and actively follow the White American culture, custom and value system instead of being pampered and coddled to act in their own unruly impulses and make impudent demands with impunity simply by their ethnic minority status. Therefore, we saw an America dominated by the White culture and White ideas and values being able to hold itself together largely, maintain its core identity and nominal unity and striving forward to explore, create and accomplish its lofty goals and ambitions in science and technology and every other significant domain. All the normal functioning, let alone higher pursuits of science and arts, inevitably came to a screeching halt when aided and abetted by our traitorous elites (hostile Jews and Jewified White liberals) disproportionately more non-Whites started flooding into America, setting up their own separate and enclaves, making random and impertinent demands, and regarding America not as a nation to be loyal to, but merely as a place to reside and make money, the latter being a necessary and invariable consequence of too many non-Whites getting into and living within a White society. Again, as is a main and commonly-agreed and held belief at this site, if the treacherous and treasonous elements are not dealt with decisively and ruthlessly, things will only get worse and never get better in the desired direction and collective interest of the White people in the West. In Japanese language, we call those “rotten and poisonous apples” in the midst of us “worms inside the lion” (獅子身中の虫) and we also say “to fend off or repulse foreign enemies, the domestic ones must be clamped down and finished off first.”

    Second, the foreign factor, especially the “Chinese Factor”. As I have argued forcefully and truthfully in my previous long article honorably posted here at CC, and is shared by quite a few perceptive and discerning White nationalists, the current China poses the single largest threat to the vital national security, sovereignty, and integrity of America and other Western nations in the next one decade or two, and to the life, security and the ultimate survival of the entire White race in a long run with its vicious, vile and incredibly vast ambition of conquering, subjugating and replacing the West to which the White race is the immanent and integral core with all strategies and means possible politically, economically, militarily, culturally and demographically. Let me name the names in an unequivocal and unmistakable way, Islam and China are the two primary enemy forces the West is faced with, the former, while large in number, is nevertheless plagued by fatal flaws and foibles such as being divided in themselves, having innumerable and strident international conflicts thus presenting many opportunities to be exploited and acted upon by the White people. What’s more, Islamic populations are in general backward scientifically and technologically, they are “low brain”, meaning far less capable and competent in building real power and staging modern wars by themselves. Their largest weapon is “human-wave invasion” by sheer number into the West, which only happened because our traitorous elites allowed and enabled them. The Islamic menace can be dealt with relatively easily once the White people truly wakes up and seize the state power back in their own hands from the perfidious elites. China is different, as China is one unified power with a totalitarian government and massive population brainwashed by and obedient to the government, and ready to be put into a war with the West would the ruler decides so. The Chinese, though lacking real creative power of the West, are in general higher on IQ, ruthless, resourceful and adaptable, cunning and adept at disguises and propaganda. China used to be an insulated, poor and backward country, they used their smartness and cleverness not toward the outside, but only against each other in thousands of years of unceasing international strife and infighting until the West brought means and ideas of modern civilization to them after the mid of 19th century, which ushered it and its vast man power (with proportionate brain power) in to the modern age. Since late 1970s when Chinese finally stopped slaughtering and persecuting each other, with a astute and able leadership, and seizing on the historical opportunity offered by the time i.e. the height of US-Soviet Cold War, it rapidly changed course to ingratiate with the West and play the geopolitical card of “enemy’s enemy is my friend” to win the favor of the Western establishment; looked upon as a huge factory and market for its unlimited man power and potential producers and consumers by Western political and industrial elites, and backed by a premeditated scheme and intensifying effort to assist and empower it from powerful Jews in the West who feel some implicit natural and affable mental ties with the “Oriental Jews”, China stated to take off and managed to amass huge capital and build an expansive and aggressive military in the last three decades as a result of countless and vigorous aids and assistance from the West including the transfer and relocation of Western factories and technologies to it, a globalist predatory trading scheme to its own advantage while being extremely harmful to the working and middle class of the West, and its own relentless and tireless effort to lie, deceive, and steal with its state-directed propaganda machine and espionage network targeting the West on full throttle 24/7.

    Again, if we look at the root cause of the Chinese Menace, it lies, similar to that in the case of the Islam Problem, squarely in the treason, perfidy, deceit, and treachery of the West elites, Jews and non-Jews as well, whose panda-hugging appeasement of, apologizing for and gloss-over on China has produced a sinister and dangerous effect of disguising the true nature and intent of China by obfuscating and blindfolding the Western people from looking at the otherwise plain and conspicuous reality of the glaring and protruding Chinese Question. The solution to that, like the previous point of Islamic Question, also rests upon the necessity and success of the Western White Nationalists’ defeating and overthrowing their own elite sellouts and reclaiming the fate of the White country and the White race back to their own hand. I, as a non-White national socialist and a convinced ardent advocate of White Nationalism, from the imperative of my lifelong mission of reviving and restoring Japan to its traditional pride, honor and strength, and from my irrepressible and steadfast sense of justice that will never be extinguished, abandoned or exchanged for another thing, shall work with all dedicated and willing White nationalists, in our respective place and role afar or in close coordination and cooperation (if the chances arise), to pursue and fulfill our common cause for a healthy and just nationalist world where we can have a strong, prosperous and safe motherland for our races or nations respectively. Let’s sally out to accomplishing our historical mission together, or die trying!

    Eisenhower’s “their Germans, our Germans” stuff is more than a joke.

    The original Zeiss factory was in Jena, East Germany, a city taken in 1945 by the American Army. Due to the stupid Yalta agreement, Roosevelt ceeded a big chunk of American occupied Germany to Stalin, in exchange for a symbolic small part of Berlin (which the Russians occupied first). Before their retreat behind what later became known as “iron curtain”, the Americans loaded trucks with Zeiss equipment and scientists and sent them west, where they founded Zeiss/Oberkochen.

    This gave rise to decades of license quarrels between “our” Zeiss and “their” Zeiss.

    The United States implemented mighty engineering projects for almost two centuries: the canal building of the early 19th century, the trans-continental railroads, the Panama Canal, atomic energy, the interstate highway system, and finally the manned space program. We might also add the construction of a vast industrial infrastructure and skyscrapers towering to the skies.

    All this seems to have come to a screeching halt by the late 1970s.

    To be sure, there is the Internet (exploiting, for the most part, telecommunications systems from prior decades). But in terms of actual, physical infrastructure, Americans seem unable to conceive, much less build, the projects which were tackled so readily in the past. By 2001, we were supposed to have Pan Am flights to Moon bases and be odysseying to the outer planets. If anything, since the 1970s much of America’s infrastructure has fallen to pieces – witness the decline of cities such as Detroit.

    Why this is so ought to be a matter for public discussion.

    The last great engineering project (manned space flight) culminated and then dissipated coterminous with the triumph of the civil rights movement. You have to wonder how much of White vision and White energy which once went into physical engineering projects was diverted to social engineering in what proved to be futile (and self-defeating) programs to create an equal society. There has been the liberation of blacks, but no leap forward in engineering therein. Insofar as there is genius, it is with a (White) Gates or a (White) Jobs.

    The review notes that segregation imposed a certain discipline upon blacks. But it also did so on Whites, who were expected to live up to the standards of their race – and then exceed them, transcending the bounds of Earth.

    To this day, most Americans, young, old, middle aged, black brown or white, are confused about the whole “space race” with the Soviet Union, because the main figures and leaders involved in that race and their story, to wit, the German scientists, remain largely unknown. What is also strange is the fact that those scientists and their role, was probably more commonly known during the 1950’s, when Walt Disney used to put on TV shows during that time, that actually had the rocket scientists like Wehrner von Braun and Dr. Ernst Stuhlinger, share their plans for the U.S. space missions. Those men even talked about their plans for a Mission to Mars, thus inspiring Walt Disney to name one of the rides at Disneyland, in Anaheim, California— Mission to Mars. But, even as the space race went into high gear after President Kennedy’s announcement to challenge the people of the U.S. to get to the moon by the end of the 1960’s, the men leading the program were largely forgotten or pushed into the background.

    I was a kid who grew up during that time of excitement and shear wonder. I even lived in one of the cities that manufactured capsules and other technology for the Moon Mission. It was a thrilling time for a kid who was a science fiction fan and the wonder and admiration mixed with envy of the entire world when they U.S. landed on the Moon, during that long hot summer in Southern California, is something that I will never forget.

      When I was a kid, my parents told me that a popular joke that was going around after Sputnik in 1957 was that, upon hearing of the launch, Eisenhower demanded to know how the Soviets had gotten ahead of the U.S. in the space race, and was told, “Their Germans are better than our Germans.”

      Unfortunately, those making the movie did not cringe despite the fact that the content of the movie was utterly dishonest and their motive utterly contemptible, because they have reached such a level of shamelessness, brazenness and self-righteousness that rendered them wholly devoid of the sense of honesty, honor, decency and shame. The only way they would cease to make such fact-denying, truth-distorting, flagrant and poisonous anti-White movies is that we disable them to do so, like what Hitler did to the Jewish scumbag “artists” and so on after he came to power in Germany in 1933. Only by seizing the state power into our hands, are we able to ultimately prevent these vermin from harming the society and our people’s mental health.

      But to paraphrase Mr. “Lynch”: the US space program and Moon landing would have happened anyway without any input from NASA’s female staffers, almost all of whom were white.

    Don’t know if “Hidden Figures” explains it or not, but what seems to be missing is that for all the mundane, albeit important, calculations in the space program, esentially only women were used. There were many hundreds of women doing those calculations. So of course the media finds the few mostly white “black” women, elevates their importance to something akin to landing on the moon themselves, and gives us a trashy movie. They act as if they over came the supektet white supremists and showed the dumb whitey who was the real kangz, but in reality there was nothing special about them. They were among many many other white women doing general calculations.

    I repeat: “I have observed over the years that a black persons creative ability correlates with the percentage of white genes in their make-up. Pure blacks have never created anything, and they never will.”

    Ha Ha, I was hoping someone would do a review of this movie. I saw the previews of this movie at a local sports bar I frequent; it was so funny. The scenes where the dindu is standing on a ladder writing out complex mathematical equations, while white males are standing below looking flummoxed, and scratching their heads was especially amusing, as was the scene where the dindu is rushing along a hall towards a meeting looking stressed, because so much is riding on her. I especially liked the actress selected for this role; she looks like she just swung down from a tree, got cleaned-up, and walked in.

    “…rats are still biting black children, but whitey has not been on the moon since 1972.” This should have read black children are still biting rats to make it more accurate.

    “…they were not free to be themselves, to create a society that felt natural to them.” I want to point out that they have been able to create a society that feels natural to them, Detroit being a prime example.

    This movie should be classified a comedy for whites that want to have a good laugh.

    Initially propaganda was that blacks would get along peacefully in America. Hence civil rights.
    Then the propaganda was that blacks would actually advance and be productive in America. Hence affirmative action and all of the federal programs.

    Now the propaganda is that blacks are better, in every way. Blacks are superior, the new men and women of the master race.

    You simply cannot make this stuff up anymore. But, then again, you can! And it’s called hollywood and television.

    A very incisive and revealing movie review that nails the essential undertones of the movie, uncovers both historical truths and well-disguised myths, and lays bare the utterly dishonest and disingenuous, agenda-driven motive of the Jews and White liberals behind the production of this movie. Thank you!

    By the way, I would very much like and appreciate you write a review on the latest Mel Gibson film “Hacksaw Ridge” which depicts, in a heroic light, an episode of a Jewish American solider renouncing violence but pulling off a brilliant feat of saving wounded comrades in the gory Okinawa campaign against a desperate Japanese enemy near the end of the Pacific War in 1945. I assume the movie is based on a real story, and my feeling after watching it was that the movie made quite effectively, appealing but also appearing to be a little overdone thus being a little fulsome and cloying. Meanwhile, I couldn’t free myself from the thought that Mr. Gibson directed this film to propitiate with and reclaim himself in the Jew-dominated Hollywood in a strenuous comeback after his off-guard drunken remark about “Jews causing all the wars in the world” years ago which rankled the powerful Jews in the entertainment industry badly. I guess he finally succeeded in that goal with his sedulous effort this time. What’s your take?

      Posted February 7, 2017 at 8:50 am | Permalink

      Hacksaw Ridge is based on the true life story of Desmond Doss, a Seventh-day Adventist from Virginia -not in the least bit Jewish. I can understand that as a Japanese, you might feel uncomfortable about your people being portrayed as the villains, but that’s no different from any American WWII film. Besides, the film doesn’t focus on the Japanese anyway. It follows the life of a real person, and so while it may be somewhat unsatisfying for those looking for a grander message, it is also inspiring in its depiction of real-life heroism, unbending principle and faith -traits which are the polar opposite of Jewishness.

        P.S. Although Desmond Doss was not Jewish, the actor playing him was, so you can be forgiven for making that mistake.

        Here is the real-life Desmond Doss on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmond_Doss

      Your description of the brave selfless Jewish soldier who saved the lives of others reminds me of the one movie that showed the struggles of a German WW2 soldier. “As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me” about a German POW that escaped from the Soviet gulags and made it all the way home. And of course they have to insert the Mysterious Pious Jewish man who selflessly sacrificed himself to help the evil Nazi, because he can forgive the Nazi for exterminating his family. It is so out of place and it’s pretty obvious they added it in as an after thought. You can’t have anything sympathetic to the Germans without the Holocaust© being in the forefront.

    “Unfortunately, while it is possible for white men to conquer space, it is not possible to make blacks our equals.”

    I have sometimes wondered if the drive of white liberals to equalize the various human natures is not, in its own way, an expression of the Faustian spirit, the drive to conquer nature and make it submit to one’s will.

      Certainly one can see the White Man Burden in those terms. Many of our past generations have seen themselves as a civilizing force. That still may be a subconscious aim: we white westerners are default humanity, and everyone will become like us once they’ve had their physical needs met and had some proper schooling.

        That’s right. The presumptuousness and self-celebration of the Left is simply jaw-dropping and disgusting, which I believe is not to be corrected but only to be defeated. By the way, Mr. Miyata, have you noticed and read my latest long reply to your last comment under my previous article published on CC? Since the comment section is now closed after a month time since the article’s posting, if you have anything to say, you may post your reply here as one in responding to this comment of mine.

    Trevor has achieved the unlikely: making me wish to see a terrible film. It really does sound hilarious. I can’t believe the screenwriters’ and director’s tongues were not firmly in-cheek when making this pasquinade.

      Tongue in cheek is what it is.

      Well, I wouldn’t pay a cent to see it if I were you. Wait til it’s available on the teevee.
