Shame On you Oprah! Oprah’s “The Butler” Is Chock Full of Racist Lies (Distorts Race Relations) (Video)

Oprah's movie The Butler a project that is purposely filled with racist lies from beginning to end.

As Eric Bolling pointed out today on The Five that the “real” Butler was born in Virginia.

His mother was never raped by a white man.
His father was never killed by a white man.

The real Butler’s life story was not bad enough so they had to fill it up with racist lies.

Born in 1919, Eugene Allen grew up in segregated Virginia, and slowly worked his way up the butler profession, largely without incident. Unlike the fictional Cecil Gaines, he did not watch the boss rape his mother on a Georgia farm, only to shoot a bullet through his father’s head as he starts to protest the incident, leading Cecil years later to escape his past for a better future.

Instead, over a period of years, Allen rose from a “pantry man” to the highest position in White House service, Maître d’hôtel. His life was marked by quiet distinction and personal happiness. He was married to the same woman, Helene, for 65 years. He had one son, Charles, who served in Vietnam. During the Reagan years, Nancy Reagan invited Allen and his wife to a state dinner as guests. When he retired shortly afterwards, “President Reagan wrote him a sweet note. Nancy Reagan hugged him, tight,” according to the story in the Washington Post. During service, he never said a word of criticism about any president. Nor was his resignation an act of political protest.

The fictional Cecil, however, does not come to the White House under Truman, but arrives in 1957, just in time for one of the defining events of the civil rights movement—namely, President Eisenhower’s reluctant but firm decision to move federal troops into Little Rock, Arkansas, after Orval Faubus quite literally barred the school room door.

In general, the movie is full of hype. Cecil’s wholly fictional older son Louis gets involved in the civil rights movement from the time of the sit-ins through the rise of the Black Panther movement, and a younger brother, who professes pride in his country pays the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. Cecil’s wife, Gloria, falls prey to alcoholism and for a time has a shabby affair with the guy next door.

Gaines’ service is marked by quiet frustration, knowing that black workers suffered a 40 percent wage deficit that lasted under the Reagan years, while being excluded from well-deserved promotions. When the weight of these injustices hit him, Cecil resigns to join his son Louis in a protest movement. When Slate’s, Aisha Harris was asked “How True is The Butler?” her candid answer was “not much.”.

Wild Thing's comment..............

Itis so sickening how the left want to have a race war and are working toward that goal. Of course they will deny it but all the evidence shows that is exactly what they want to happen.

Sad thing is the low information voter will take Oprah's hate filled movie as gospel without even caring to find out the truth of Eugene Allen. This movie is a slap in the fact to Mr. Allen who led a decent dignified life with honor that earned the deepest respect of our greatest President, Ronald Reagan and his wife.

It is called propaganda. Propaganda is the bread and butter method of the Left's efforts to sell their drivel.
