Ask a normal person about the movie Dunkirk and he or she (normal people only identify as one or the other) will say the film is the story of an important battle of World War II. That was the war with the Nazis, featuring literally Hitler. That’s clarification for any errant leftist who stumbled upon this page. Ask a freak about the movie Dunkirk and ze will regale you of its problematic ways, what with its lack of women, minorities, and transpeople. And they wonder why we mock them with glee.
For veteran Ken Sturdy, who fought at Dunkirk in the actual war, transgender race politics didn’t even come up.
“I never thought I would see that again. It was just like I was there again,” Sturdy said.
“It didn’t have a lot of dialogue,” he added. “It didn’t need any of the dialogue because it told the story visually and it was so real.”
The movie Dunkirk tells the story of the evacuation of allied troops from the French city of Dunkirk. It’s entertainment for most viewers, but for just a handful of people in the world, it contains images that bring back memories of surviving Dunkirk.
“I was in those little boats picking them out of the water,” Sturdy said. He was a 20-year-old signal man with the Royal Navy helping evacuated soldiers reach waiting boats from the chaos on the beach.
I’m not crying. YOU’RE A BABY!
God bless Mr. Sturdy for his service.
Pro-tip to Hollywood and its slavish leftist acolytes: if you’re going to continue profiting off of World War II (I can’t even count how many movies have been made about this event, add Dunkirk to the enormous list), maybe keep your squawks about inclusivity to a minimum. And when I say “minimum” I mean shut your ever-flapping pie holes. War isn’t pretty, it has never been, it never will be. War cares not a rat’s puffy flatulence about a trans soldier. Or a female she-warrior of color.
So next time, if we could, let’s focus on what the movie is and what it depicts. Not on what a feminist gender-queer pot dumpling hoped it would be.
