So now, a violent, socially meaningless, dangerous movie about the creation of the comic book villain, the anti-batman, Joker has darkened the American movie screens.

This has raised all kinds of fears in such places as the US Army and FBI.

U.S. Military Issues Warning to Troops About Incel Violence at Joker Screenings [Updated]

Here we have a pitiful story that degrades and humiliates a disabled down and out mental case that turns the guy into a monster killer, befitting, of course, the storyline of the villain in the Batman saga. So, we have another grimy, gritty, violent origin myth. As if we need to have another maniac, mass murderer Joker character in our socially diseased society of mass murderers on the lurch all over the country's landscape. How many Jokers do we have now…maybe 10?


I think this is at least the six or 7th Joker’s let loose on our society's memic violent cultural heroes or antiheroes. Starting with the actually wonderful and comical depiction of the Joker, by the great Jack Nicholson, in the Batman movie of 1989. Then there were, I believe, a few more, much more menacing and less comical, yet as murderous as ever, in later depictions in other versions, among (too many for my taste) of Batman.

Well, here we go again. But this time they're going to really create a social monster ready to kill everybody.


And then show us the etiology of how the poor guy was made so Godam crazy.

And lo and behold they even put our hero, Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman, as a youngster, in the saga who, of course, Wayns parents get murdered in a riot started by the Joker. Let's GET REVENGE IN THE SEQUAL…. Wonderful storyline for the next sequel. I mean, pretty soon they’ll have more Batman movies that Rocky movies!

So here we go again folks, another movie from Hollywood that feeds the beast.

Incel is a term that was adopted in the ‘90s by an online subgroup of self-professed “involuntary celibate” men. Over time, some radicalized members of the incel community have formed an ideology that promotes violence. Elliot Rodger self-identified as an incel before he killed six people near the campus of the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2014. And James Holmes, the man who opened fire in a crowded movie theater in 2012 has become a bit of a hero to the incel community. It’s often been repeated that Holmes was inspired by the Joker, a claim that primarily rests on statements the killer reportedly made to police after the fact in which he said he “was the Joker.” Speaking with the Hollywood Reporter, Daniel Oates, Aurora’s chief of police at the time, said that “there is no evidence” the shooter ever said that.

In the alert emailed to service members, Army officials claimed that incels “also idolize the Joker character, the violent clown from the Batman series, admiring his depiction as a man who must pretend to be happy, but eventually fights back against bullies.”


No booty can make a man crazy. Maybe there needs to be some kind of public fund set up to get these guys laid. Taxpayer funded yearly trips to Nevada. I'd rather my taxes go to that than bombing the middle east.

If you don't like that kind of movie don't watch it. Joker is an interesting character and the story isn't a botched remake, much better than the likes of Mary Sue characters in Star Wars of today.

Is this a real op?
I hope you're just trolling.

The only interesting thing about this man-gina fest of an op is the military making a statement.
Especially when the Holmes thing looked like a giant psyop.

I hope they hide the Hellraiser flicks, wouldn't want the kiddos sticking pins in their heads.

Yeah.. Probably real.. Its a whole thing now. Essentially another satanic panic, amplified by a media that really, really, really wants something bad to happen.

From those that actually watched the movie, Ive heard its pretty darn good and actually character driven.

Oh, I guess you have your head in the sand. Aren’t people complaining about violent movies?

Knock knock, anybody home in there? An epidemic of Massive spree and serial killers in America?

Also think this a play, most likely subliminal programming, activation of previous programs.

Feeling triggered?

I hate star wars for other reasons. But it's not a crazy mindless violent picture like this kind.

Interesting? In what way. How he kills?

Society really doesn't care if a few people identify with a villian and kill a few other people. Some movie producers and actors get rich and parts of society get their entertainment.

I am pretty sure that anyone lefty will take the queue from their leadership and say this is a BAD movie. I am sure they will because I have already seen the formation of it. And it was just a matter of time before we saw it here.

Now in reality, where most people live and breath, I have heard this is a brilliant movie worth paying for twice.

It is about getting # on and finally having enough. It wasn't mindless. It shows the messed up stuff that even happens in real life only to a lighter degree, for the most part.

Sounds like the same group of CUCKS that are upset about the new Rambo movie are going to screech and tantrum about this one too.

Violent movies are fun to watch. End of story.

And every single time a weak, gutless pussy mentions online or on mainstream media that this movie is “bad”, or this movie is “dangerous” it will increase the ticket sales.

That’s a fact by the way.

I wasn’t going to pay to watch this, but I’m definitely going to watch it now, sounds really good actually.

Hopefully soon the dEms will take the Whitehouse and we can have some law changes that make violent movies illegal.
We could have a steady stream of films about diversity being our strength or movies about how it’s racist to be masculine.

Oh What a better place society would be.

As performance art goes, it was a compelling piece of cinema that offers a unique inside look at a particularly disturbing character whose nightmarish philosophy is terrible because of how it relates to recent politics and tragedy in our culture, almost convincing despite the caricature that inspired it. On the other hand, it seems to swing back and forth between comical and grotesque, having a hard time fixing itself on any specific message while emphasizing mental illness as both a medical condition and as a social trend. Personally, I despise the movie because it hijacked a comic book icon for propoganda purposes masquerading as a mockumentary, barely disguising the love letter undertones that contrast with hastily written counterpoints reminding the audience that this guy is not V from that Vendetta movie, who was a deserved extremist practicing strategic strikes against a corrupt governing body and its media pundits, but a cold blooded criminal who doused a city in gasoline of hilarity and lit a match of insanity from his own burning soul in the name of raising heaven from the ashes of hell. Joker was invented to illustrate the antithesis of a man whose world is destroyed by one night of random savagery, the choice to let chaos consume you or forge you into a tool rather than a rabid weapon of insurgency and revolution with no actual endgame besides proving the elite fat cats that they aren't in control, in fact, no one is. But Joker was just an incidental factor in an ugly game of dominoes that backed itself into a corner and left only one way out: deeper into the rabbit hole. Alice managed to learn a few moral lessons in her adventures, which is the biggest failure of this movie - there is no takeaway, no profound insight into the human spirit or cosmic punchline. It's a joke that pretends to be funny until it's obvious that nothing was ever cute or amusing about the story. And then it laughs anyway. There's a brief glimpse of the Waynes falling victim to the ensuing rebellion of the city masses as the public responds to the Joker (never actually referred to as such on screen) with great gusto. And little Bruce pictured yet again in his trauma, just starting to understand the reality that would eventually set him on the path to being the caped crusader. Unfortunately, the most obvious reference to the actual DC mythology that defines the clown prince of crime. Without these details, you might never even guess that this was a comic book movie at all, nor that Joaquin Phoenix is the latest to recreate one of the most iconic villains we have witnessed on television. Which is perhaps the punchline in itself. A Joker who makes a name for the DC comics but doesn't belong in their world. Making DC great again...by taking DC out of it.

Having seen the movie I can see why conservatives are upset, they are equally upset and tortured by a teenage Swedish girl.
Most anything upsets conservatives, hey trannies exist.
Haven't seen a Socialist upset over the movie.
Have seen lazy people compare it to Taxi Driver presumably because de Niro?

Good film, a brooding look at a super-villain with a Deadpool rating.
Considering the films by the guy behind Old School and other comedies plus, its about the Joker its not that funny.
Violence wise, it's not really all that. It's not A Serbian Film, it's not really Deadpool there's around four scenes with blood squibs in three of them.
Capitalists are greedy and protect themselves through the media, truth, but the reason conservatives are upset, they don't like the truth. Joker even states he's not political but, conservatives that haven't watched the film but outraged (again) by headlines wouldn't know that.
Worth seeing for the subtle twists.
The (far) rights outrage will see tickets sales boom, Captain Marvel and Black Panther says hi, which probably means a sequel of sorts is in the pipeline.

The movie was made to be serious. Hence the warning labels.
