Part 2 of 2 From Twilight Zone-The Movie Segment 1-Time Out Starring Vic Morrow Written and Directed by John Landis Produced by John Landis Steven Spielberg Kathleen Kennedy Released June, 1983 Distributed by Warner Brothers. Synopsis- Vic Morrow plays Bill Connor, an outspoken bigot who is bitter after being passed over for a promotion. Drinking in a bar after work with his friends, Bill makes prejudiced remarks and racial slurs towards Jews, blacks and Asians...thus attracting the attention of several black men sitting near them who strongly resent his racist comments. Bill leaves the bar very angry. When he walks outside, the supernatural tone begins. He inexplicably proceeds to assume the racial ethnicities of people against whom he was always prejudiced. First, he finds himself in occupied France during World War II. He is spotted by a pair of SS officers patrolling the streets, who see him as a Jewish man. A chase ensues around the city, and Bill is shot in his arm by one of the German officers. Bill falls from the ledge of a building...and abruptly finds himself in the rural South during the 1940s. There the Ku Klux Klan sees him as an African American whom they are about to whip and lynch. Bill is scared and confused; he vehemently tells them he's white. While trying to escape the Ku Klux Klan, he suddenly finds himself in a jungle during the Vietnam War...as a Vietnamese man blown to bits by U.S. soldiers. Instead of killing him, the grenade thrown by the soldiers blasts Bill into occupied France again. There he is captured by Nazi soldiers and put into an enclosed railroad freight car, along with other Jewish Holocaust prisoners. With no possibility of redemption or rescue, Bill uselessly screams for help to his friends from the bar, whom only he can see as the train pulls away to a death camp.
Evansville, Indiana...The Klan City 1921-1925. Know history. Know your local hater(s) David Curtis "DC" Stephenson. An evil man, once a local hero and now someone most Tri-State citizens have no knowledge of at all. "This large Klan voting block allowed Stephenson to take over Indiana politics. In the 1924 Indiana Election almost every Republican candidate was handpicked by Stephenson. He had nearly all elected officials in his pocket. Stephenson backed Republican candidates swept to victory in the November elections. The Klan elected the Governor, controlled BOTH houses of the legislature, and Klan Candidates won a variety of local political offices...mostly Republican. Stephenson was at the height of political power but in less than a year he would be confined to a State Penitentiary serving a life sentence." WATCH Any part of this sound familiar? Hhhhmmmm....November 2010 perhaps? Just saying. The Rise and Fall and return of Hate Groups... Beware these men behind their masks, their name is Legion. They can fool those watching their network sponsor but they can never fool a true Patriot. Fight hate and intolerance. Spread the knowledge.
