Warner Bros. bravely unearths buried Truths . . .
15 October 2015 | by (The Gutters of Baltimore) – See all my reviews

. . . that racist textbooks penned by Johnny-Come-Lately's have nearly succeeded in obliterating. Before succumbing to European gun powder, steel, and germs, Native Americans enjoyed a far more advanced and peaceful civilization than the continent of Hundred Years Wars, Holy Crusades, Wars of the Roses, and Inquisitions burning alive thousands of seasoned women and Jews. Realizing that it was already too late to straighten out the thinking of older folks brainwashed by mendacious peddlers of the Great Paleface Lie, Warner Bros. aimed its much-needed historical revisionism at the fresher minds of the Looney Tunes crowd with this animated short, KRISTOPHER KOLUMBUS, JR. Porky Pig, in the title role here as "the New World's" first Death Culture interloper, "discovers" an America full of artwork on an epic scale, advanced holistic health treatments, watercraft far superior to his own, squadrons of airplanes, soaring high-rise buildings, and a multiplicity of ethnic groups living in peace as they enjoy their trademark Jazz music. This expose ends right there. NOT shown is how 99% of this superior civilization is murdered off because the non-Europeans cannot fathom Pure Evil. Nor are the centuries of denying "Indian" achievements (or--worse yet--crediting them to other races) covered here. I'm guessing that I'll eventually run across a "Merrie Melody" providing the rest of the story.
