Andrew Yeoman’s BANANAs ~versus~ Machete

Robert Rodriguez’s new Mexploitation film Machete is apparently causing a whole lotta butthurt among White supremacists in the U$A. In response to its release, one group, known as BANANAs, declared its intention to protest the film’s opening, armed with flyers… and machetes.


The prospect of a Hollywood-inspired, White civil uprising was dampened somewhat when just five BANANAs, led by some guy called Andrew Steve Yeoman, managed to drag their aching bottoms along to a sinema in Livermore (Livermore protesters target ‘Machete’ film as ‘anti-white’, Janis Mara, Contra Costa Times, September 4, 2010). The fascist kook who led the quarrelsome quintet “said he has not seen the movie, but based on the trailers he has seen, he feels the film should not be shown in theaters”.

The film *s Danny Trejo as Machete, “a legendary ex-Federale with a deadly attitude and the skills to match”; Michelle Rodriguez as Luz aka Shé, “a taco-truck lady with a rebellious spirit and revolutionary heart”; Jessica Alba as Sartana, “a beautiful Immigrations Officer torn between enforcing the law and doing what is right”; and Lindsay Lohan as April Booth aka The Sister, “a socialite with a penchant for guns” and “a nun with a gun”.

What’s not to like?

Well, on May 8, 2010, crazy person Alex Jones predicted that the release of the schlock horror film would trigger race riots, and was part of an elaborate conspiracy to blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Machete hasn’t triggered any race riots, but the attention whores who assembled in Livermore should nevertheless be given props for bringing the lulz. (The BANANAs’ last attempt to capitalise upon anti-immigrant feeling in May ended in tears when Yeoman and a sidekick got broke.) Fingers xed, screenings of the film in Melbourne will entice former gnat Reverend Scott Harrison and his legion of followers to engage in similar Machete-inspired shenanigans.

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2024 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.

    I just read a review of this movie (see link below).

    It sounds like a vile, disgusting, racist piece-of-shit to me. Anyone who protests against it should be congratulated.

    “@ndy” – I suspect your attitude to this movie and any protests against it would be somewhat different if the racial roles were reversed. Once again, you’re a hypocrite and an idiot…

    What about Latina violence?

    What about it?

    I don’t like violence of any kind, myself. You seem to be fine with it tho, as long as the perpetrators and victims are in the correct racial categories (i.e. non-whites committing violence against whites). Or as long as the perpetrators are Greek anarchists or “AntiFa” or something like that. Or as long as the victims are the type don’t follow the “party line” (AMREN-ers or those “National Anarchist” guys in SF, for example.)

    Very unpleasant and uncivilised of you, really… and also rather “Fascist”!

    @ndy – well done with the article Andrew Yeoman is a joke to the real Anarchist community. In his own words he appears to babble on that the “American” Nation or Nationals seem to be European-folk (who are in fact the offspring of immigrants ZOMG!!! from colonists) but completely disregards the true indigenous people who were wiped out and their lands taken i.e. Native Americans… oh but he apparently claims that the European folk legitimately “bought” the lands. On another note being the epitome of Anarchy this dunderhead calls for a petition to supply to the government… the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to ban children from Folsom Street. I have no trouble regarding the intent but being a so-called Anarchist and working with “government” ummm… can you say hypocrisy? Please. It’s anarchists like these and even nationalists like these who clearly show their true colours. You want to be a National Anarchist Andrew? Maybe you should start trying to revitalize the TRUE American culture of the folk that were brought up from the land there and who have been completely ignored and whose culture has almost been completely extinguished. Take your bullshit cultivated “civilization” back to the gutter. Machete is NOT a racist film, you sound like those knee-jerk freakos who make out that anything slightly violent is inciting some form of propaganda. Need I remind you of Charles Bronson in Death Wish? Or maybe Clint Eastwood in all those spaghetti westerns? FUCK OFF! And dare I even go as far back as all the exploitation action cinema of the 50s and 60s? What were THEY doing? Oh THAT’S RIGHT KILLING mostly people of ethnic minorities but guess what? THEY DIDN’T WHINE LIKE YOU! Get over your phenotype and your melanin. I do not identify to “race” what ever that is according to your contrived ridiculous notions! He talks about violence, well where was he for the premiere of torture-porn maestro’s films like Hostel 1 and 2? AHHHH I see… it’s alright but guess what? “White” dumbshit Americans were killed in those films by WHITE people so I guess THAT’S OK!

    I’m not going to lie to you. Machete looks like a fucking rad film.
