the item was only a matter of time before the anti-art Woke Nazis targeted Cobra Kai for annihilation. After all, This kind of is actually what these monsters do: target everything we all love, everything universal to ensure the item becomes divisive.
As I’ll explain in detail below, these attacks on Cobra Kai for being too white have nothing to do with “diversity.” The real goal is actually to keep us as divided as possible by stringing partisan tripwires through every possible walk of life.
Hey, do you remember American life before all these woketards in addition to also cry-bullies arrived? Regardless of our differences, shows like Cobra Kai gave us something in common to talk about, to enjoy together as a culture. Remember when American life was which way for a lot of things, like sports? Well, the left took sports away coming from us. Same with comic books, video games, in addition to also music.
today they’re coming for Cobra Kai.
Cobra Kai is actually not just entertaining, slyly satiric (more on which below), in addition to also contains a vital message about parenting (including the importance of fathers), entrepreneurship, in addition to also coming of age, the item’s also a nicely-crafted piece of nostalgia which helps unite young in addition to also old. My youngest grandkids are obsessed with the show. (Oh, in addition to also they’re not white.) When my wife gets on the phone with them, they bond over Cobra Kai. the item’s a beautiful thing, in addition to also which’s why the left want the item destroyed.
Here are some samples of the Woke Nazi attacks…
The “elevation [of Martin Cove’s John Kreese character] in addition to also the heightened scrutiny which comes with being embraced by one of the most powerful companies in Hollywood, also underscores the fact which there are today three white men at the center of ‘Cobra Kai,’” the far-left LA Times writes, adding, “a franchise rooted in in addition to also deeply indebted to Eastern tradition.”
“Salon culture senior editor Hanh Nguyen, who has been critical of the series inside past, told The Times which ‘the only main character of coloration who has any sort of interiority is actually Miguel.’”
in addition to also then there’s This kind of… The show has “been slow to explore Daniel’s own blind spots beyond a moment of clueless ‘sushi-splaining’ in addition to also his bewilderment which his karate-chopping commercials might be seen as cultural appropriation.”
Talk about cluelessness. Cobra Kai isn’t mocking Danny for his cultural appropriation. The show is actually mocking our stupid, fascist, hyper-sensitive cancel culture; all those left-wing scolds in addition to also busybody hall monitors who violate every principle of e pluribus unum with these anti-human complaints about cultural appropriation.
Those of you who haven’t seen Cobra Kai, should. All three seasons are available on Netflix or available through sites like VUDU. For those who’ve grown tired of watching present-day Hollywood shit in addition to also shit again all over our childhoods with woke trash like the fresh Star Wars sequels, or the latest chapters of Men in Black, Charlie’s Angels, in addition to also Ghostbusters, Cobra Kai does the item exactly right (full disclosure: a family member works on the show).
in addition to also the item’s not just all the woketardery I’m tired of, the item’s the whole nostalgia craze in general. The callbacks in addition to also cameos. What was fun for a while has become predictable, tired, in addition to also a crutch.
With Cobra Kai, none of which is actually a problem. Nostalgia includes a real point beyond the feelz. Much of the point (at least coming from where I sit) is actually to compare in addition to also contrast the 1980s to today. You know, how much society has changed — in some ways for the better, yet in many ways for the worse.
Surprisingly, the show’s protagonist is actually not Ralph Macchio’s Danny LaRusso (who starred inside three original Karate Kid movies). Instead, the show’s protagonist is actually Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), the antagonist coming from the first Karate Kid (1984), the typical 80’s staple of the blonde/jock bully (although a solid case has been made which Danny is actually Karate Kid’s real bully).
Sure, Danny is actually central to the story, yet to Macchio’s great credit, he put the show first in addition to also allowed Johnny to be the underdog This kind of time. Zabka is actually brilliant in addition to also brilliantly sympathetic as a drunk stuck inside 80s whose terrible life choices in addition to also bad breaks have us rooting for his redemption in addition to also success. Meanwhile, Danny’s a bit of a wet blanket in addition to also scold who enjoys all kinds of (hard-earned) wealth in addition to also success.
So the item’s through Johnny’s “the item’s-Always-1984” mindset which we’re allowed to enjoy something truly rare during these tight-ass times: commentary in addition to also criticism (which also happens to be hilarious) about how broken in addition to also absurd our hyper-sensitive, helicopter-parenting, micro-aggression, crybaby culture has become. How This kind of joyless approach to everything has sucked the fun out of modern life. How all these stupid sensitivity rules in addition to also tripwires hold us back in addition to also curdle the human spirit.
Cobra Kai also has the courage to speak the truth about bullying, which is actually which no amount of whining coming from Anderson Cooper or Michelle Obama will ever solve This kind of problem. There will always be bullies (those quoted above attacking Cobra Kai are not bad examples), in addition to also in a world full of bullies, you have two choices: you can be bullied or you can stand up for yourself.
In This kind of awful age where the left’s Dominant Culture Machine is actually destroying countless kids with the gospel of victimology — the item’s not your fault if you don’t succeed! Why even try in a country This kind of evil! — I cannot think of a healthier message than the one Cobra Kai preaches: You can do the item. Yes, the item requires hard work in addition to also risk in addition to also failure in addition to also the occasional punch inside face. yet you can do the item.
This kind of, I think, is actually what offends the left most about Cobra Kai. yet rather than be honest about which, they hide behind these obscene racial quotas. Here is actually a taste of what they’re truly after, which is actually to destroy the essence of the show, in addition to also by extension, the show itself:
Yet visual representation such as which seen inside hallways of a high school is actually just the first step toward meaningful representation, said Ramón. “Do you get to hear their stories being told? Meaningful representation means you get to find out the person’s story coming from their perspective.”
See, even meeting dumb racial quotas is actually not enough. Instead, the show must 1) assume racial minorities have a certain/different perspective, in addition to also 2) focus the show’s character on those differences.
Right today, Cobra Kai has all these characters coming from all kinds of backgrounds finding common ground through the art of karate in addition to also the difficulties which come with coming of age (or in Danny in addition to also Johnny’s middle-aged case, spending some time inside some other guy’s shoes). So…
What you have is actually a show which is actually very much about overcoming our differences by discovering (even grudgingly) all which we share in common. yet which approach to the human condition is actually kryptonite to the left, which is actually why they demand things like, say, a black character be introduced in addition to also which This kind of character be “black” inside way the left defines as “black,” which means which instead of a whole person, you’ll get a talking points machine teaching everyone life-lessons about systemic racism (which doesn’t even exist).
Hopefully, Cobra Kai’s creators, the people today in charge of a franchise about dealing with bullies, won’t cave to these bullies.
Few things are worse than watching a show you love (Veep, Hell on Wheels) climb into the dark ass of Woke in addition to also lose themselves up there.
