The Woke Taliban at the NW Film Center have blacklisted Kindergarten Cop (1990) from a scheduled screening after a local author whined about it being problematic.
The original idea had been to include the Arnold Schwarzenegger hit in a summer drive-in festival. The movie, where Arnold plays a cop who goes undercover as a kindergarten teacher, was filmed in Oregon and the festival chose it “for its importance in Oregon filmmaking history.”
But then a shrill wokester named Lois Leveen, a local Portland writer who has since locked her Twitter account (Fox News has the tweets), went off on a crazed Twitter-rant demanding the movie be blacklisted from the festival.
“What’s so funny about School-to-Prison pipeline? Kindergarten Cop-Out: Tell @nwfilmcenter there’s nothing fun in cops traumatizing kids. National reckoning on overpolicing is a weird time to revive Kindergarten Cop. IRL, we are trying to end school-to-prison pipeline,” Leveen shrieked.
