Is Drumpf the guy "Slim" from that movie?

Asked by Jak (3600points) March 14th, 2016

In the early 90s there was a movie called A Rage in Harlem. I don’t remember all of it, but what stood out to me at the time and I still remember the most was the guy called “Slim”. They were gangsters or something and he was like the leader or head bad guy for one group. When he was talking with whomever, if he got upset he would yell “POP GO DA WEEDOW!”. (Or at least that’s how I remember him saying it.) Anyway, when he said this mantra, his minion would shoot the person who got him angry. Nothing was ever said about it but I thought at the time that the guy was pretty smart. He had people killed and out of his way and also plausible deniability if there were any charges brought. After all, he didn’t actually say; “Kill this guy.” so if it ever came down to it, he could just throw that guy under the bus, saying that the guy just took it upon himself to kill people, Slim didn’t actually TELL him to do it. He really got to eat his cake and have it too.
Anyway, it strikes me like that’s what Mr Drumpf is doing by his sidewise allusions, though I also think he got carried away and said more than he meant to a couple times, maybe because people weren’t jumping in and clocking people quickly enough to suit him.
Am I imagining it? Is my dislike of him coloring my perceptions? I can’t trust my objectivity at this point because my antipathy towards him has outpaced my rational mind.

It seems he has weird effects on whomever makes the mistake of listening. He’s like bad dope. You never know what kind of trip you’re in for. The one useful purpose of the man is as a gauge of the cognitive competence of we as a society. I can’t decide which is the greater embarrassment: being enamored with the man, or lacking the sense to conceal it.
