League of American Nationalists
Starting at about 10 minutes into the season premiere of “Sons of Anarchy” (a biker gang), titled “Albification” is the following dialog:
Law enforcement officer: I’m guessing this isn’t about cigars.
Town father: Ethan shares a common interest.
Ethan: The Sons of Anarchy have been supplying weapons to gang members for over a decade. Its time it stopped.
Officer: (picking up business card handed to him) “The League of American Nationalists”
Ethan: (shifty eyes, and inflection avoiding racial agenda) The League represents an influential group of businessmen who are tired of criminals undermining local enterprise.
Officer: (with an “I’ve got your number” expression) Right. And how many black and Latino businessmen in your influential group?
Ethan: (with an OK you’ve got my number deadpan): None.
Officer: I know who you are. (then looking at the obviously ex-con bodyguard of Ethan’s) White hate.
Ethan: Quite the opposite, deputy chief. (with a “he doth protest too much” unctuousness) We are separatists, not supremacists. We are God fearing patriots. And in a time when black radicals are in power in this country we are desperately trying to remind our citizens of their founding beliefs.
Officer: (again, with the “I’ve got your number” expression) That all white men are created equal. (pregnant pause with no retort from Ethan) What the Hell do you want from me?
Bodyguard: Call us what you want. We’ve got the same goal: Stop scumbags from arming scumbags.
Ethan: We just want you to know, we are at your disposal, if you need us.
Officer gets up and walks out.
This “screenwriting” is chock-full of little pieces of, uh, propaganda that deserve careful dissection and examination.
