"Kindergarten Cop" now a terrible thing, 30 years later



"It's true Kindergarten Cop is only a movie. So are Birth of a Nation and Gone With the Wind, but we recognize films like those are not 'good family fun.'?They are relics of how pop culture feeds racist assumptions. Because despite what the movie shows?in reality, schools don't transform cops. Cops transform schools, and in an extremely detrimental way."

And so on...

Eh, give like... Three years tops and nobody will care, probably sooner. Human beings simply don't have the capacity to remain outraged about any given topic for too long. When the disease fades away, people start working again, have access to whatever services they were used again and a general return to stable normalcy happen, I doubt that many people will have the time and motive to care about this sort of thing.

Site called "reason", eh?
Sounds as credible as a site called "my ass".

Kindergarten Cop was a fun movie. In Highschool in 9th grade one of my teachers was a former police officer. He retire from the force and well took up teaching. so yes it can happen. I know we have have the war on police at the moment, but Kindergarten Cop was one of Arnie's best comedies.

Reason is a libertarian news site. The tone of the article itself finds this ridiculous.

Kindergarton Cop is so quotable though! Probably in my top three favourite Arnie movies.

That's what I get for not reading articles in question.
Shame on me.

I hope that, before I die, there's a memorial to all the poor souls lost to the Culture War.

The main purpose with a book or movie is to entertain the people of its time, not the future. I don't care how it is judged 30 years later.

The way Arnold yells at some of the kids would probably be viewed as too harsh in 2020. "Go get a toy and bring it back to the carpet!" "NOW!"

I also suspect the line, "Boys have a penis, girls have a vagina" said by a 5 year old would be "wrong" in today's society.

There's no war on police.

The protest is about holding police to a higher standard and taking accountability.

This is what I mean about numbers and ratios all the time though. We can say it's too harsh for 2020, but who is truly rallying behind that? How many people are honestly going to turn "Kindergarten Cop" off in an offended flip of the remote? Nobody.

These "twitter voices" are always loud, but they make up basically some sub-percent of the real population. Yet no one can actually compute or verify this fact and is afraid to take a stand or not join in an act of perceived groupthink.

We are banning things and enforcing cancel culture based on the whims of an untabulated extreme-minority.

This was mentioned on Inside Edition. If true, there isn't a face palm strong enough to convey my feelings over how stupid this is and how ridiculous people are being.

To be fair, there are many types of protesters. Some do want police reform and want them to be held accountable and have better training that's not so militaristic...then you have those that actually want to do away with the police altogether and against all forms of it. In that regard, there is a "war on police".
