Storyline

REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG is an intimate and nuanced investigation into the life of one of the most influential and provocative thinkers of the 20th century. Passionate and gracefully outspoken throughout her career, Susan Sontag became one of the most important literary, political and feminist icons of her generation. The documentary explores Sontag's life through archival materials, accounts from friends, family, colleagues, and lovers, as well as her own words, as read by Patricia Clarkson. From her early infatuation with books to her first experience in a gay bar; from her early marriage to her last lover, REGARDING SUSAN SONTAG is a fascinating look at a towering cultural critic and writer whose works on photography, war, illness, and terrorism still resonate today.

Glad She's Dead
2 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

Here's a quote from this vile woman that is celebrated as some sort of genius intellectual:

"The white race is the cancer of human history; it is the white race and it alone—its ideologies and inventions—which eradicates autonomous civilizations wherever it spreads, which has upset the ecological balance of the planet, which now threatens the very existence of life itself."

The fact that she can get away with saying this and people have no issue with this statement goes to show the cognitive dissonance and delusion that permeates Western society. Could you imagine a statement like this being made by a white person about any other group and nobody having a problem with it?

Sontag exemplifies everything that is wrong with leftist movements. They claim to be all about equality and egalitarianism and yet they take every opportunity they get to slander, denigrate and abuse white people. Despite the claims they make about their opponents, they themselves are hateful bigots projecting their own pathologies onto anyone that isn't like them or disagrees with their opinions.

Susan Sontag is burning in hell and I couldn't be happier about that.
