Michael Hoffman – The Joker is a Work of Art

Michael Hoffman – henrymakow.com Oct 8, 2019

The “Joker” movie of October 2019 is disenchanting and anti-occult. If it “inspires” violence it would be no more culpable than Alfred Hitchcock for depicting a cross-dressing homicidal maniac in “Psycho.”
“It is art and has validity on that basis alone, a cinematic document about one rejected and an oppressed person from our nation’s past, a kind of everyman who could be anyone of us if we were so unlucky, and it necessarily foreshadows our future, should America choose to continue on its grossly materialistic, fantastically cruel, mass abortionist, Christ-less path.”
(Warning: this essay reveals some aspects [spoilers] of the “Joker” movie that viewers who intend to see it may not wish to read) 

“Joker” Movie: Mental illness and misfortune in 1970s America 

By Michael Hoffman — (Abridged by henrymakow.com) 

Perhaps the bleakest assertion of ‘Joker,’ is the one that’s hardest to disprove: that the ghastly world (the Joker) inhabits, and by extension ours, is the one we deserve.” — John Wenzel
The “Joker” movie of October 2019 is altogether different [from the joker portrayed by Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.] It is disenchanting and anti-occult (with one possible exception noted below). If it “inspires” violence it would be no more culpable than Alfred Hitchcock for depicting a cross-dressing homicidal maniac in “Psycho.”
The protagonist in “Joker” is Arthur Fleck, played by Joaquin Phoenix, a mentally ill man whose every benevolent act is misunderstood. He attempts to overcome his affliction but the circumstances of his life and chosen occupation (clowning and standup comedy) conspire to obstruct his intentions.
There is no depiction of “random mass shooting” in this movie. The only time multiple people are shot is in one scene where Arthur is viciously assaulted by three drunken junior executives in suits on a subway train. The beating they administer is brutal enough to paralyze or kill him, had it continued. It does not continue because Arthur saves his own life by drawing his revolver and shooting all three of his attackers. Only because he is wearing clown makeup (as part of his employment), does the media exploit the incident and sensationalize the shooter as a clown-killer who murdered innocent bystanders.

  1. No, not buying it. Anything in which De Niro appears is sufficient impetus to avoid it. To simply lay down and avoid.
    Contrived and scripted violence as “education”? Get the fuck outta here. I have one, and only one, heartfelt attitude towards Hollywood. BURN HOLLYWOOD, BURN. Take your pretense of “art”, along with your grossly over paid sluts and whores and BURN!!!! BURN HOLLYWOOD, BURN.

  2. Unfortunately Mr S is right….Hollywood has no redeeming features…..ninety percent of the stuff pumped out by the racist Jews is low brow garbage.

    Almost all the top actors are crypto Jews….Europeans are actively excluded from the industry…..But the Jews get away with it because the public does not know the actors are Jews.There are dozens of Jewish Weinsteins preying on nieve wannabe stars….Weinstein is a grotesque caricature of the greedy corrupt fat hideous jew….

  3. Yupp Mr S.. Scatos wrapped up in Pedowood Tinsel ??
    BTW to sluts & whores, you forgot to add, the homo-paedos & faggots ?

  4. How “extreme” of me. Yet just because establishment media makes a film into a bone of contention, doesn’t mean you have to gnaw on it. It’s FAR too late in the “game” to attribute ANY merit whatsoever to yet another round of scripted, contrived, stomped, whipped, punched, shot and beaten, dead horses. NO joke! NO JOKER!!! FUCK BATMAN TOO! It’s all cultural pornography at this point – single-handedly removing vulgarity, by making it the norm. Pardon me, THE FUCKING NORM!!!! Capiche!?!?

  5. Enough said but to say this appeals to the South Park generation and was timed perfectly.
    Say no more.

  6. उप राष्ट्रपति एम वेंकैया नायडू (M. Venkaiah Naidu) गुरुवार को अफ्रीका की पांच दिवसीय राजकीय यात्रा पर रवाना हो गए. वह 10 से 14 अक्टूबर के बीच अफ्रीका के कोमोरोस और सिएरा लियोन की यात्रा करेंगे.

    उप राष्ट्रपति ने रवाना होने से पहले कहा कि भारत और अफ्रीका के बीच परस्पर गहरे ऐतिहासिक संबंध रहे हैं. हाल के वर्षों में अफ्रीका ने तीव्र आर्थिक प्रगति की है. इंफ्रास्ट्रक्चर और सामाजिक मानकों जैसे शिक्षा, स्वास्थ्य पर भी अफ्रीका की प्रगति सराहनीय है.
