Real vs. reel man (Kung Fu Myth)

“David Carradine, ‘Kung Fu’ Star, Dies in Bangkok, Nation Reports

By Charlotte Porter

[Socially critiqued excerpt from] June 4 (Bloomberg) — David Carradine, who starred in the television series “Kung Fu” and appeared in the movie “Kill Bill,” was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room, The Nation reported, citing police. Police suspect suicide, The Nation said. He was 72.

Blog Critique:  In the longest war, womankind must be shown in the harshest (or hawt-est) light possible, while the trashy truth about men must be sanitized, glorified and constantly spun by media, as pictured above, as pictured and described in this blog in general.

David Carradine, case in point.  Follow the circle of the media disinformation about David Carradine as bearing on the daily programming to prop up a falsely high self-esteem in the social gender class of maledom (compared to which womankind remains the one-down class).

After David Carradine was found at the end of a rope, apparent suicide by hanging (imagine that picture of somebody who could not save himself, much less be a male protector against other men for  any woman), mass media today shows him  in a tux (reel lie).  Not that we’d want to see him hanging from the rope (real truth), but the reel lie in a tux perpetuates the mystique of the sharp-dressed man, a tux being a power suit, a hero’s garb.

In general today’s news reports that link David Carradine with death at his own hand by self-hanging do not also link him to the Kung Fu TV show which iconically featured him as a man of great peace and wisdom (reel lie).  Generally today’s news that links the dead David Carradine with Kung Fu does not identify that he apparently hanged himself in his luxury Thai hotel room, but instead shows him smiling, alive and in a tux.  Another big suit.  Another falsely believed and falsely posited super man.  Another lie in the longest war.
