Just before Christmas, I was digesting some of the SJW outrage that A&E was going to run a Klan “reality” show. SJWs are many things, but sociopolitically sophisticated is not one of them. Not a one of them was sophisticated enough or had the sense or cynicism enough to consider the possibility (i.e. the reality, as you will find out in a moment) that I figured out off top, that the whole thing is a paid actor-driven smokescreen to help raise money for the paranoia-industrial complex.
“Our goal with this series has always been to expose and combat racism and hatred in all its forms,” the network said in a statement. “However, A&E learned last night from the third-party producers who made the documentary that cash payments — which we currently understand to be nominal — were made in the field to some participants in order to facilitate access. While we stand behind the intent of the series and the seriousness of the content, these payments are a direct violation of A&E’s policies and practices for a documentary. We had previously provided assurances to the public and to our core partners — including the Anti-Defamation League and Color of Change — that no payment was made to hate group members, and we believed that to be the case at the time. We have now decided not to move forward with airing this project.”
This same network had something of the same purpose in mind when it started Duck Dynasty. It wanted to make fun of rural Southern working class whites, but the whole thing blew up in their faces.
