Do Orcs have Equal rights? Sure, Lord of the Rings is Racist! By Brain Simpson
It was only a matter of time before Lord of the Rings, was proclaimed to be “racist,” since the movies created moral panic at the time for the chattering elites, having traditional Nordic themes. Now it is an all open attack:
“Sci-Fi and fantasy writer Andy Duncan claimed in a podcast that J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings books are racist, citing the negative perceptions associated with the evil Orcs. “It’s hard to miss the repeated notion in Tolkien that some races are just worse than others, or that some peoples are just worse than others,” declared Duncan recently on the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast. “And this seems to me—in the long term, if you embrace this too much—it has dire consequences for yourself and for society.” “In many ways President Trump is unique, but in many ways we have seen his like before,” he continued. “We have seen the forces that he has tapped into on the ascendency before… As Tolkien well knew, the war is never quite over, and it has a tendency to show up right there in your own hometown when you’re least expecting it.”
Doesn’t he have a book to write or something? One need only reflect on the movies to see that there are undeniable racial differences between the elves, men, dwarfs and orcs. For example, elves are clearly one-on-one physically superior to men, living longer, if not forever. The orcs are violent, cannibalistic and without moral being. Probably their IQ would be lower than men, and men, lower than elves, with dwarfs between them. That is just the way the story went, and how life goes. Angels would also be “racial” superior to men, but this does not mean anything. What has gone wrong here is the racial nihilist view of out-of-control liberalism, which says that it respects and cherishes difference, but also seeks to destroy those very differences.
