YouTuber Auron MacIntyre recently confirmed that the reason behind creating Amazon Studios and Prime Video The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power It was to call Tolkien’s fans a racist.
McIntyre made his opinion known as he reacted Article from The Hollywood Reporter Written by Richard Newby, “A Racial Reaction to ‘Rings of Power’ Puts Tolkien’s Legacy in Focus.”
Newby wrote in his article: “The only reason people complain about casting choices is purely the result of bigotry, despite attempts to cover their estimates with claims of ‘bad acting’ and ‘insufficient experience’.”
“What is the end of the speech? rings of strength I made it clear that we live with the justification of racism.” “People who constantly consume company media to lend some character to their soft little brains, while flaunting profile pictures from famous IP addresses, are now crying lovers rings of strength Supports the ‘evil’ morals of Amazon and Jeff Bezos”.
Newby continues, “so-called Tolkien supporters use Jackson’s films as a shield to support all-white representation, despite the fact that Jackson and co-authors Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens made several significant changes to Tolkien’s novels when adapting them to the film, including playing with the timeline and adding characters New, just like rings of strength. “

Not only does the article claim that Tolkien’s fans are racist, but it also asserts that Tolkien was somewhat progressive.
Newby writes, “Although Tolkien’s progress in the early twentieth century was not comparable to the progressive attitudes of today, it had no bearing on the adaptation or expansion of his work. Things change.”
MacIntyre tweeted, “The entire series was created so that anyone can write this article.”

Not only did the show generate a lot of hate from people like Newby who attacked Tolkien and his fans, but in the show’s fourth episode, the show includes a blatant allegory of racism when Haddad starts talking about how the elves came to take their jobs.

The discourse doesn’t really make any sense given the context of the actual presentation. Galadriel arrives at Nymenor with a human named Halbrand. It is Halbrand who tries to steal the guild emblem, but is thwarted in doing so and thrown into the brig. However, before his arrest, he beat up the blacksmith who then gave his speech.
The blacksmith is also a witness to Galadriel telling him to leave Nimenor as soon as she arrives. It says, “All we ask is that Nimenor continue his mercy and grant us the ship’s passage to Middle-earth.”
Given the actual continuity of the show provides no rationale for the inclusion of the speech given Elf who appears to be deeply despised and wants to leave and is a human who steals his badge and not Elf, it is abundantly clear that the speech is a straightforward allegory of modern American politics revolving around race and identity.
And this speech likely foreshadows how Nimenor will eventually fall into Prime Video’s complete and utter slaughter of Tolkien’s actual writing. That would be because the Nemenorians are racists.

In a letter to Milton Waldman, Tolkien explained the reason for Nimenor’s downfall in writing, “The fall is partly the result of an inward weakness in men—and therefore, in the first fall (not recorded in these tales), repented but not finally healed… The reward on earth is most dangerous to the Men of Punishment! The fall is accomplished by Sauron’s cunning in exploiting this weakness. Its central theme (inevitably, I think, in the story of men) is prohibition or prohibition.”
He then points out that it is their desire for immortality and to be a god that leads to their doom, “the Númenóreans dwell within sight of the ‘immortal’ land in the far east, Eressëa; and as the only men who speak the Elvish language (they learned in the days of their alliance) they are in constant contact With their old friends and allies, either in Eressëa’s bliss or in the kingdom of Gilgalad on the shores of the East-Earth, they became in appearance, and even in powers of reason, hardly distinguishable from elves–but they remained mortal, though they were rewarded with three years, or more than three double “.
Tolkien explains: “Their reward is their perdition—or the means of tempting them. Their long lives aid their accomplishments in art and wisdom, but it generates a possessive attitude toward these things, and awakens the desire for more time to enjoy them. Partly anticipating this, the gods imposed a ban on the Númenóreans from the beginning: they must Never sail to Eressëa, nor far west from their own land. In all other directions they can go as they please. They must never set foot on ‘immortal’ lands, and thus become fascinated by eternity (within the world), which was contrary to their law, torment or gift The Elatar (God), which their nature cannot really bear…”
Tolkien goes on to list three different stages of their fall, “There are three stages in their fall from grace. First submission, free and willing obedience, albeit without complete understanding. Then for a long time they unwittingly obey, more and more openly murmuring. Finally they rebel. And a schism appears between the king’s men and the rebels, and the small minority of the persecuted believers.”

This message will pay off in Tolkien Silmarlionwhich was edited and published posthumously by his son Christopher.
in SilmarlionTolkien wrote: “And so the fleets of the Númenóreans moved against the menace of the West; and there was little wind, but they had many oars and many mighty slaves who rowed.”
under the eyelashes. The sun set and there was a great silence. Darkness fell on the land, and the sea remained still, while the world waited for what would come.
“Slowly the fleets passed from the sight of the watchers in the sanctuaries, their lights dimmed, and the night took them; and in the morning they were gone. For a wind from the east descended. And they broke the ban of the Valar, and sailed the forbidden seas, and went up in war against the dead, to wrest from them eternal life within the circles of the world.” Follow.
It is clear that the sin of the Nimenorians is the same sin committed by Adam and Eve in Genesis. If you remember Genesis 3:5, “God knows very well that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be like gods who know good and evil.”
Like Adam and Eve, the Nemenorians wanted to be gods and were willing to recruit a huge army in order to obtain eternal life from the Valar.
It is not only the same sin committed by Adam and Eve, but it is also a violation of the first commandment: “I am the Lord your God: you shall have no strange gods before me.” The Númenóreans wish to be deities themselves and thus place strange deities before Ilúvatar. They abandon their faith and begin to worship Morgoth and even offer human sacrifices to him.
Instead of this deep writing that warns of pride, greed, idolatry, human sacrifice, and more, it seems to be replaced by fake racism aimed at spreading morality based on corrupt American politics and ideology.
