Depending on how many of you want to become a Lord or a Lady, we can build our little MIDNIGHT'S EDGE Kingdom! Amazon desperately needed The Lord of The Rings The Rings of Power to be universally embraced by audiences worldwide, and capture the cultural zeitgeist, just like the Peter Jackson movies did twenty years ago. That didn’t happen, which resulted in lengthy trade spinpieces we’ve covered over the past two videos now. In this editorial then, we will go through Amazon’s take on why they openly censored negative reviews, how they view the fans of Tolkien, and if they think they are on the other side of the fan backlash now… Earlier coverage: 🤍youtu.be/QLww6cgCHrY 🤍youtu.be/cscIXCWNIJA Please share, like, subscribe, and follow us on… Facebook: Facebook.com/Groups/MidnightsEdge Twitter: 🤍Midnights_Edge And support us here for cool extra features: 🤍🤍subscribestar.com/midnightsedge 🤍🤍patreon.com/midnightsedge We also welcome one-time Paypal donations at: contact🤍midnightsedge.me Send us stuff!

You know what I'm going to skip this video because just that statement alone about JRR Tolkien and his work is a slap in the face to a man who gave a country he loved that was his home a mythology after its mythology was pretty much
I can trace my DNA all over that part of
Or should I say what I would call the north Germanic part of
That being a lot of Britain the Celtic areas of Europe meaning Ireland and Scotland and a lot of Scandinavia specifically Denmark and Norway
Although there is also black touching my blood as well as German
And at least through family lineage I can claim at least partial heritage to a Blackfoot legacy
All of this is to say because apparently you've got to make all that clear these days when everything is about race and who you are as what you look like who you sleep with and so on that I can kind of get where the man was coming from
As a pagan even though I am a baby pagan and new along my path
I can admire what the man's condition was
That's why I vehement Lee oppose all of these cultural vandals who seek to do nothing but destroy
they claim to want to protect minorities and their cultures but they care not for your culture nor for you no matter who you are black white brown or otherwise
They're nothing but a force of decay and destruction and they seek nothing but power and revenge for their perceived wrongs real or imaginary makes no difference
Well, I guess all us Tolkien fans are “evil.” Oh well, I’m sure most would rather be “evil” than woke.
I freely admit I have a major issue with black elves, dwarves, and hobbits, er, sorry Harfoots.
Not because I'm a right-wing racist but because of the following.
Elves come from a land that for thousands of years had no sun, Dwarves are a subterranean race, and Harfoots all originated in the same place so you would never get such wide racial diversity.
They could however have made every single person in the Southern village black and I wouldn't have batted an eyelid. It's not a million miles away from Harad and Rhun where canonically 'people of colour' and other ethnicities live.
This was never about Tolkien's world. This was always about 'progressive' propaganda and THE MESSAGE.
This series is proof that SJWs can ruin anything.
I guess I’m a patently evil sum buck then.
Top Gun: Respects it’s fans; makes 1.5 Billion.
So I can use the Metallica version of Diamond Head's "Am I Evil?" as my theme song? Cool!
As a Amazon shareholder, I want that Amazon fires such obviously incompetent employees!
Uhh... Italy's new leader she IS a far-right facist that has compared immigrants to a plague and adamantly believes there should be NO exceptions for abortions. Oh, and she as expressed deep admiration for - of all fucking people - Mussolini, on multiple occasions.
To big to fail... That was the promo of titanic
I am evil because i broke on fifth seria, know that black elves dont exist, sauron is not anakin, galadriel is not a hysterical menhating bitch, costumes are stupid, so as kelebrimbor, hobits repulsive, and how they get multirace society when there are so few traveler and everyone hate strangers. And why black elves exist, if they lived in the shadows of woods.
Would love to see more videos on the HotD series. Although hated shows (e.g. RoP) get more YT views, eventually a saturation point will be reached with such content. I, myself, am tried of such videos, and would like to see more videos on good shows. Cheers!
The show was pretty good.
The message of "Tolkien is about many people from different groups getting united against evil, thats why we made black elves and dwarfs" FALLS APART for the fact tolkien is based on norse and celtic stuff, thing about white people, not black and brown ones, and the "different groups" are Humans, Elvesm Dwarfs and Hobbits...all based on that mythologies.
They are trying to destroy the context on pro of their racist agenda.
I'm not up to date with all the details about the problematic decisions and policies that guided Amazon in making TROP but I just couldn't bring myself to watch past the first few episodes because 90% of the characters were so unlikeable, ESPECIALLY Galadriel, and the dialogue was laughably poor as were the story choices. Nobody ever surprises you or shows any complexity and depth and so many events are just absurd or silly. The show is embarrassing.
I don't understand one thing. If big wigs knew that the Tolkien fans were angry, they knew about the situation. Why didn't they come out and say something like, "You are going to alienate 100s of millions Tolkien fans. Can your promise me you will get that many and MORE if you use your politics?"
