American film makers have been voluntarily censoring their films to appease Communist China.
"China is an incredibly important movie market and in fact is second only to North America in terms of the amount of revenue that it generates in movie theaters each year," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior analyst at media analytics company Comscore. There would be a "huge void" in the global box office without the money Chinese audiences spend on US blockbusters.
China's box office is sometimes even more important to Hollywood studios than the domestic box office. In 2016, video game adaptation Warcraft avoided bomb status thanks to China's $225 million in revenue, compared to $47 million in the US. In 2017, the eighth Fast and the Furious movie picked up over $100 million more in China than in the US. A year later, a quarter of Aquaman's $1.1 billion global box office washed in from China.
Then there's Disney. It's one of the biggest winners in China: So far this year, the proud owner of Marvel Studios is sitting on more than $1 billion from the country's box office. Avengers: Endgame made $600 million in China, vital to its victory over Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all time. Avatar, by comparison, made just over $200 million in the People's Republic.In other words, China is now dictating propaganda to Americans. Is it any wonder why American films are so very anti-American?
The Left has made it a cultural norm for businesses to fund "social justice" programs and whatnot. They demand the flow of funds to their causes as a matter of "corporate responsibility". Strangely, they are not the least bit concerned about this.
The most fundamental corporate responsibility is to protect and foster the nation that has so blessed them. It should transcend the base pursuit of money. But, as with all things where China is concerned, cash is king and every company sees those billion plus potential customers and lusts.
As Lenin so eloquently stated "the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them." That's why these big multi-national corporations are happy to sneer at America, and to attack our basic values and heritage.
That has to stop.
