New Politically Correct “Rocky” Sequel to Feature Lesbian Islamic Terrorist?

By Debbie Schlussel

Never missing an opportunity to beat a dead horse, Hollywood is bringing you yet another “Rocky” sequel, and, yes, it will feature Sylvester Stallone . . . along with every politically correct minority on the planet. No word on whether or not it will feature a lesbian Islamic terrorist as a fighting opponent, but if not, that’s the only thing missing. Leave it to the far-left Weinstein Brothers, who are putting out this latest Rocky disaster.

When the sixth installment of the Rocky movie series, 2006’s “Rocky Balboa” (read my review), came out, star Stallone promised it would be the last. But he lied. In January, “Creed,” the latest in the Rocky movies, will begin shooting. And the storyline is stupid, featuring almost every politically correct storyline imaginable. The story is that the grandson of Rocky frenemy Apollo Creed (from “Rocky II”), Adonis Creed, is now a fighter. And who is his trainer? Rocky Balboa.

But that isn’t all:

Some of the characters include Adonis’s deaf half-sister, age 10, as well as a potential lady friend for Adonis who is a doctor of Indian descent; a guy named Joe who co-owns Mickey’s gym with Rocky; a former boxer named Pete, and a “Mickey-like” guy named Marcel, who’s Latino and assists with Adonis’s training.







Disabled character . . . CHECK! Disabled minority character . . . TWOFER CHECK-CHECK! Black dude replacing White dude, who is now relegated to “the help” of the Black dude . . . CHECK! Third World Asian minority girlfriend who is smart and helps people . . . CHECK! Two Latinos, possibly illegal aliens . . . CHECK, CHECK, CHECK! Like I said, the only thing missing is a lesbian or transsexual Islamic terrorist boxing opponent, preferably with only one arm, to round out the “We Are the World/United Colors of Benetton” storyline. I’m disappointed and I’m sure HAMAS CAIR is, too. I’m also disappointed that the stale, pale, old White man, Rocky, is even allowed in the movie, but he’s there as the lowly hired help. And he’ll be gone as soon as this franchise gets off the ground (IF it gets off the ground, and I doubt it will).

Don’t be surprised if the Latinos in the movie are illegal aliens, as Stallone said of the immigration status of the Latino characters in “Rocky Balboa.” And don’t be surprised if Adonis’ Indian doctor chick is a Muslima. Just sayin’.

How much you wanna bet the movie is a big bomb? This is what happens when Hollywood has zero creativity but still wants to cash in on your hard-earned bucks. Refried drivel.

Good thing Adrian isn’t around to witness the disaster. (In “Rocky Balboa,” part of the storyline is that she died.)

Yo, idiots.

By the way, there are reasons Rocky was a hit that simply don’t exist anymore. In the mid ’70s to early ’80s, boxing was a big deal. Now, it’s a dying sport, struggling to survive. MMA is big now–though not as big as boxing was then–and this latest Rocky movie is still about boxing. Rocky was a White blue-collar hero, a guy admired by Reagan Democrat types. America’s middle-class blue-collar segment is shriveled beyond all recognition. The factory jobs that Rocky fans worked aren’t around anymore. They’re in China and Asia. Remember, the original Rocky movie came out in 1976, America’s Bicentennial, when America was a patriotic, hard-working country. Now it’s an Obamaphone, ObamaCare country.

The country has changed significantly in the 38 years since the original Rocky movie. Fans of the first Rocky movie and its early sequels are Gen X-ers and Baby Boomers, and they don’t go to see movies as much as they used to. They won’t care about this pseudo-sequel featuring Rocky as a barely there shell servicing a main character who has nothing to do with the original Rocky movies. They won’t be nostalgia-driven to see this. And those at whom this movie is aimed–millenials, teens, and 20-somethings–don’t have any connection to the Rocky movies or to his character. There’s no nostalgia factor for them at all. I don’t think they’ll go out in droves to see this.

The second Rocky movie came out in 1979, when Americans were hostages of Shi’ite Muslims in Iran. Americans saw Rocky as a proxy for us against the world. We just don’t see that in anyone at the movies anymore, especially since so many movies are anti-American, and their protagonists “multi-cultural” enough to appeal to international movie audiences and not American in any way. In one of the Rocky movies, Rocky fights a Soviet boxer. We rooted for him against the Communist as the Cold War was still going on. The only thing that would match that would be if Rocky fought a Muslim, since it would represent us against ISIS and Al-Qaeda. But Hollywood would never give us that storyline, unless Rocky was beaten by the Muslim. You see, Hollywood is now hostage to every whine from the HAMAS CAIR crowd and wants to sell tickets to the 1.8 billion Muslims and other Third Worlders around the world who hate us.

So this new Rocky-wannabe, “Creed,” ain’t filling the prescription for anything. And it will fail.

Might as well drag her out of the grave as a zombie character and capitalize on that genre, as well.

Don’t blame Stallone or the Weinstein Bros. for wanting to take more cash for the public. It’s only about making more money, and they are operating under the sound principle “Never underestimate the level of stupidity of the public.” No person of even modestly subaverage intelligence would ever willingly pay even so little as $1 to see another piece of Rocky dreck. But, as the large number of Obama voters, Islamopanderers– among other such overlapping groups–clearly demonstrate, there is a massive pool of ultrasubcretins who are just begging to give their cash to Stallone and the Weinstein Bros. Let them part with their cash.

Debbie, I believe you were in first or second grade when ‘Rocky’ first came out, and I was turning 20 that year. Nevertheless, you captured the flavor of the nation and culture very well. I attended a huge Bicentennial Celebration doubleheader at Shea Stadium that year on the Fourth of July weekend that the Mets held. It was a different time, we hadn’t yet been poisoned by the presidency of Jimmy Carter, although times were tough enough during the Ford years. Times had pretty much been tough for much of America during those years.

After Rocky III with Mr. T I stopped going to Rocky movies. I had seen enough, and thought the whole theme had been played out by that time. Rocky III was a bit over the top for me. I had enough at that point, but Stallone still kept cranking them out. And from what I heard, they got more and more ridiculous, although I understood Rocky IV from a cultural point of view.

Debbie hit the nail squarely on the head with how the times changed, and the relevance of these movies got lost as a result. Also, I tired of Stallone’s eager grabbing of stardom and Hollywood phoniness, and when I learned of his HGH bust at the airport in Indonesia in 1998, I was really done with him.

Not to mention that Rocky is basically the Hollywoodization of Chuck Wepner’s story, which really isn’t all that glamorous, except for the fact that he took an Ali who was by no means in his prime to the 15th round. Chuck Wepner was not good looking and his life wasn’t sunshine, lollipops and roses. Stallone took his story, super-jazzed it up, and has made tens of millions since.

But at 319 years old, and never having owned up to the Chuck Wepner angle, except perhaps for a token payment, IF that, who needs Stallone? Anyone that wants to keep paying for the HGH and steroids he proudly takes in an effort to drink from the fountain of youth is welcome to see this crap.

Changing your mind because of career decline 8 years later is not a lie.

I saw Gone Girl at the theater tonight due to Debbie’s review – loved the movie. I was hoping for a different ending but realized that Ben Affleck’s character is a dunderhead who will eventually be killed off by his praying mantis wife.

Political correctness has infected all of Hollywood. I am completely turned off by this and will not continue watching any movie which in my opinion has succumbed to the sickness of political correctness.

OrlandoRican on October 31, 2014 at 9:16 am

Rocky was from an era that is now long gone. It should have been allowed to die a dignified death in the 80’s. Instead, we will get a laundry list movie that few will watch, and still fewer will care about. Those Reagan Democrats, that Debbie noted, are either dead or dying now.

PC gone wild. How about a gay dude as boxing commissioner? As for a lesbionic, how about the referee? There must be a place in the film for a “Palestinian?” There could be a championship fight to raise funds for an Ebola infected nurse who “Courageously” battles against her “Confinement” so she can freely go to the nearest gun-free Starbucks? The possibilities are endless. The major problem here is that we won’t be able to tell the players without a program.

Victoryman on October 31, 2014 at 10:25 am

Victoryman’s last sentence is particularly interesting in light of the fact that such a Rocky movie, with political correctness gone wild, would reflect what’s already happening. Distract, Confuse, Divide and Conquer. That’s exactly what’s happening in our nation right now.

Okay, it’s been a few days since I posted the politically correct chant of the day.

FERGUSON!!! FERGUSON!!! FERGUSON!!! . . . War On Women . . . No more condoms at Walgreen’s . . . rich Jews . . . Islam good . . . FERGUSON!!! FERGUSON!!! FERGUSON!!! . . . rich Jews . . .

There!!! Now don’t we all feel better? I could go for a nice Whole Foods, microwaved 50 calorie, gluten free, peanut free, tempeh sausage, vegan sandwich, . . .

couldn’t you? Awwwwww, c’mon, admit it, and while you’re at it, throw in a little click of the heels and Hitlary For President.

ROTFLMAO!!!

In the immortal words of Porky Pig, th–, th–, tha—, tha—, that’s all folks.

OH!!! “One more thing,” said the attorney to the secretary at 5:27 p.m., after the secretary had already shut off the computer, and put away all the files. “The 50 calorie Whole Foods vegan sandwich you mentioned. I thought those radical, leftist, Occupy types were against the processes that created the materials the microwave is made out of, and the microwave technology itself.”

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! LOL!!!

What is all this whining about “political correctness”? PC means modern liberalism; ie Leftist mind control. And modern liberalism is following its natural path. Modern Liberalism is a secular civic religion of equality. It is a replacement religion for Christianity. It is like a cancer that is spreading. In time it will kill the host. The only way to defeat it is to destroy it. Using terms like “PC” shows a cowardice and a refusal to acknowledge the truth; ie that modern liberalism is a white hating, masculinity hating, Traditional Christianity hating movement.

    Uhhhhhhh, you new around here? Seriously.

    Before you criticize the owner of the web site, or the membership, why not check out the place for a bit, and also take a walk through the archives.

    We’re not a bunch of neophytes who just stepped off our Rockacycles from the big bash at Fred Flintstones house. We’re well aware of what leftism in all its forms, including what is now referred to as political correctness, is. We are well aware of the religious nature of the machinations and proclamations of the American left.

    And as for Jews who harm their own people, cause and country(ies), haven’t you ever seen Debbie mention the term JINO? How about dhimmi, a word I wasn’t familiar with until coming here? Seriously, I’ve been here a year and ten months, and everything you mentioned is correct, but acting as though Debbie and the core membership here is oblivious to these facts suggests you don’t know what this site is about. And your speech is condescending, to say the least.

    Please, take a long walk through the archives. There is an acute awareness and knowledge of what you say here. But thanks for stopping by. Have some chopped liver and stick around.

Ridiculous, but certainly not surprising. Part of the problem is that movie stars now command such hefty payments for their parts in film that the studios are very reluctant to take a gamble on a completely new movie, hence all the remakes of old movies. The other part of the problem is that Americans want to be entertained at movies, they do not want to think or be challenged, which means simplistic products. For those reasons, American cinema, for the most part, sucks.

King David on October 31, 2014 at 5:41 pm

“…movie stars now command such hefty payments for their parts in film that the studios are very reluctant to take a gamble on a completely new movie…”. I think the losers in Hollywood are just too vapid to come up with a new plot. They’ve worn out the dog-bites-man scenario years ago. If there were two brains cells to rub together in Hollywood, you’d have to tell the two dozen, or so, actors/producers in the room get out before the smoke alarm went off.

Interesting piece, except that boxing is actually doing quite well these days. In fact, it is more popular internationally than ever before, and ‘Rocky Balboa’ was an excellent movie.

Eben on November 1, 2014 at 4:15 am

This sequel does seem lke a mistake. Stallone never seems to let go of anything.

Eben on November 1, 2014 at 4:21 am

Yeah, let go, like of his ego. That can be a problem in Hollywood, because it’s all about the ego. I dealt with people in the acting business for a while, from 1989-98, through a business venture I had with a partner, who was also in the game at the time. His career took an unfortunate turn, and the door closed on him. He was on the verge of getting a part in a show that is not only still running, but spawned more than one spinoff. Hollywood is not necessarily a meritocracy.

And one thing I observed about most people aspiring to be actors. It’s all about them, . . .

all the time. Stallone’s no exception.
