The broken man

‘The Broken Man’ is the seventh episode of the sixth season of HBO’s fantasy television series Game of Thrones, and the 57th overall. Here the series exacerbates its previous feminism to surreal levels. It is not enough that the show introduces a woman as the feudal lady of the beautiful medieval castle that we see above. She is a ten-year-old girl. And worst of all, the fans loved this new character!

Some Americans wondered yesterday how the judicial system gave in to the BLM threat by condemning a white cop in the case of the black man who died on the asphalt. One clue to how the West got to this point is simply to notice what TV fans like: a world upside down. In the episode this brat, Lady Mormont, speaks authoritatively as a feudal lord, and initially disparages Jon Snow and Sansa Stark who ask for help in their campaign against the Boltons.

In Volantis we see Yara and another woman making out publicly. But Yara is not a lesbian in Martin’s novel. This is another excess of the scriptwriters to demoralise the white viewer. (Yara also harangs her ‘little brother’, the phrase she uses, so that he stops being a broken man.)

The penultimate scene is even more surreal than that of the ten-year-old feudal lady. Arya, seen here in Braavos with the background of a kind of Colossus of Rhodes, is stabbed several times in the stomach by the Waif and she survives the attack! All of these images come from this episode, including Blackfish’s Castle below, and above with Jaime Lannister on the bridge.

The trick used by the creators of Game of Thrones is to mix the beauty of Aryan architecture with poisonous messages for the white soul. It reminds me of Kubrick’s virtuosity in filming 2001: A Space Odyssey so that his next movie, A Clockwork Orange, was so poisonous that it was banned in England for several decades.
