1988/A made-for-TV movie loosely based on a true story/starring Lindsay Wagner and Randy Quaid/Written by William Schmidt/Produced by Jewish neoconservative Lionel Chetwynd and possible-Jew Steve Tisch/A review of the 2004 DVD version
When you think of the word “evil,” what comes into your mind? For most people, the word brings forth thoughts of the Devil, a demon or maybe a hairy Jewess who runs an abortion clinic.
But in the little Canadian town of Clear River, there lurks a different kind of evil – an evil so sinister that it can hardly be spoken of without trembling: anti-Semitism. That’s right: Hebe-hate. Jew-crit.
Of course, the filmmakers could have titled this movie as, maybe, “Controversy in Clear River,” but that’s less likely to make a soccermom’s lower lip quiver. Emotion is always the key!
Kate McKinnon (played by Lindsay Wagner) is a White mom who just wants to smoke cigarettes and fret about her teenage son getting hurt at hockey practice. But one day she discovers that the town’s Bible-thumping mayor, Peter Suvak (played by Randy Quaid), who is also a schoolteacher, is instructing his students – including her innocent son – in the ideology of hate. Worse, since such hate is coming from a teacher/mayor, it is officially-sanctioned hate, the worst kind. After all, that sort of official bigotry led to the Nazis killing 300 million innocent Jews and forcing 300 million more innocent Jews to do manual labor in concentration camps. Manual labor! Da noive of dem Nazis.Things heat up in Clear River when it is discovered that not only is Mr. Suvak teaching hate, but he is also saying that the Holocaust [tm] didn’t happen. And McKinnon, of course, can’t have that. Never. The no-Holocaust matter is amplified when the viewer sees a tearful Kate thumbing through a book featuring photos of children who were victimized by the Nazis – in fact, the viewer is treated to such photos more than once, apparently to make sure that the guilt sinks in. Note to the filmmakers: less is more.
So McKinnon goes on a crusade to stop Suvak and his bigotry. Oh, sure, her campaign nearly destroys her family life and makes her a pariah within the community, but it’s all worth it, since anti-Semitism must always be fought wherever it is found, lest 300 million more Jews end up in gas chambers. Always be a righteous gentile, the film seems to say, no matter what the cost to you.
Interestingly, the movie is careful to have the anti-Semites in Clear River toss out the word “conspiracy” several times when referring to Jewish behavior, which of course makes the gentiles look like irrational kooks who huff paint fumes. A small but very important detail.
Eventually, McKinnon’s activism leads to Suvak being arrested and convicted of a “hate speech” crime, making Clear River safe again. Whew! What a relief.
Now – theoretically – the schnozzim can move into Clear River and take over its commerce and its newspaper, free from worry that a sinister Christian will red-flag them. Don’t you love happy endings? Shouldn’t all gentile communities have a Kate McKinnon? Saaay, are there any Kate McKinnon-types in Israel, preaching against bigotry by Jews? And, more importantly, are they viewed as heroes? Or do Kate McKinnon-types only exist in gentile communities?
Evil in Clear River is an overt jab at “revisionism” dressed up as a movie.
