Do you know the greatness of Buffy the Vampire Slayer?

Respectfully, I’m not referring to the enjoyable Sarah Michelle Gellar; I’m talking about the real Buffy — the original. That would be actress Kristy Swanson, star of the 1992 hit film which featured Donald Sutherland, Paul “Pee-Wee Herman” Reubens, Hillary Swank, and the great Luke Perry (here).

Long before 90-pound movie maidens regularly punched 200-pound men with their Kermit-the-Frog arms and sent ’em flying ‘cross the room, Buffy was a butt-kickin’ brawler — and in a much more believable way.

Kristy still packs a punch, and she recently used such to slay the notion of America being a joke.

Witness:

Someone posted the following video to Twitter…

Quite the concoction.

I watch that and think, “Aw, that girl wanted to make her mama’s dreams come true. So she leaned into the strike zone and took one for the team.”

51-year-old Glee actor Patrick Gallagher had a slightly different thought, and he tweeted it:

Cue Buffy, who treated Patrick like a fanged foe:

And it was on.

Patrick struck back with his own Jedi judo. Karate chop:

He also didn’t appreciate the efforts of a troll army:

Patrick threw his American citizenship amid a couple more jabs:

Back to Buff:

Oy. The ugliness of Twitter wars.

But here’s where it gets uglier. The real story is People Magazine’s coverage of the Tinseltown tiff.

What they wrote:

The initial controversy started when Trump fired off a string of racist tweets earlier this month to criticize progressive Democratic congresswomen and urge them to “go back” to the “crime-infested places from which they came,” despite the fact that they are American.

“A series of racist tweets.”

They are, of course, referring to this:

So for all who read People, the message is clear: It’s an objective fact that the President of the United States is an out-and-proud racist; this is something we all know and understand. This is America.

No qualifier. No evidence.

#NotGood.

Will readers take People’s news as gospel? Surely some will assume the publication understands the definition of racism — the judgement of human beings solely according to the color of their skin. That concept is wholly absent from Trump’s above tweets, yet those who aren’t abreast of political goings-on will remain in the dark (see more here).

Oh, well. While they’re seated in the shadows, they’d might as well enjoy a flick. I think I might, too. And no better time for an early 90’s classic. Check out the trailer below, and if you’ve got the time, soon enjoy some fantastic cinematic satisfaction. It slays.
