We're Off To Bugger The Wizard
[Digging around in the archives again, and I came up with this blast from the past.]
I will start by assuming that most readers of this website are at least vaguely familiar with the outline of the whole Harry Potter thing. Many will have seen various protests directed against the Harry Potter book and movie series by assorted Christian groups bitching about the allegedly favorable portrayal of the occult and black magic. There is in fact a lot more solidly grounded reason for normal White people to object to the Harry Potter series; it is blatantly left-wing and multi-racial and has the hero, young Harry, engaging in a brief interracial relationship with an Asian, while of course all the villains are very Nordic-looking Aryan types.
Now, however, it would appear that there is even more reason for people to quietly fish those Harry Potter books out of your kids' rooms and drop them in the dumpster.
The Associated Press reports: "Harry Potter fans, the rumors are true: Albus Dumbledore, master wizard and Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay. J.K. Rowling, author of the mega-selling fantasy series that ended last summer, outed the beloved character Friday night while appearing before a full house at Carnegie Hall. After reading briefly from the final book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, she took questions from audience members. She was asked by one young fan whether Dumbledore finds true love. 'Dumbledore is gay,' the author responded to gasps and applause."
"She then explained that Dumbledore was smitten with rival Gellert Grindelwald, whom he defeated long ago in a battle between good and bad wizards. 'Falling in love can blind us to an extent,' Rowling said of Dumbledore's feelings, adding that Dumbledore was 'horribly, terribly let down.' Dumbledore's love, she observed, was his great tragedy."
Pardon me while I go off into a corner and puke.
Why? Why did this woman, who is now one of the wealthiest people on the face of the planet due to these silly books, and who literally owns her own castle, have to go and do this crap to people who rightly or wrongly, genuinely look up to her?
I read a few of the earlier books and they were actually fairly cute. The rot started setting in about the third volume of the series where the woman clearly began to take herself too damned seriously and decided she had some kind of "mission" other than to entertain.
But really, why? Why is it simply impossible for this society to produce one clean and wholesome thing? Why does everything have to be tainted with this loathsome perversion and with the bizarre, deeply unhealthy obsession with this filthy perversion that seems to have taken over every aspect of our lives? Why can nothing be free of it, not even a series of children's books?
Who got to J. K. Rowling and persuaded or coerced her to befoul her own creation like this? Obviously someone who decided that the Harry Potter series just wasn't PC enough. Obviously someone who decided that a media event this powerful and this influential just had to have some buggery in it somewhere. Who makes these decisions? How did it come about?
How many millions of (almost all White) children will now grow up with the idea that it's all right to commit filthy and sickening acts with people of the same sex because of this?
When will we finally put an end to this?
