The Left’s stranglehold on Hollywood is well-documented.
Liberal messaging is peppered into virtually every aspect of film, television, theater, and music.
But liberals have a shocking complaint about one controversial movie.
The Hunt is back on.
The release of the film was initially postponed because of its subject matter – a group of “deplorables” are being hunted by coastal elites in the latest iteration of the famous short story “The Most Dangerous Game.”
The postponement of the release occurred because the film successfully angered people on both the Left and the Right, and the studio felt the divisive political climate couldn’t handle the movie.
But now the film can be viewed with Universal’s video on demand service temporarily since movie theaters have been shut down in response to the Chinese coronavirus.
Even though characters who are supposed to represent the MAGA-contingent are being hunted like dogs, liberals have a huge complaint about the film.
Their gripe is that the film makes too much of an effort to be even-handed and empathize with both the Left and the Right.
The far-left outlet Salon said the following in their review of the film:
“As I watched the film I made a mental list of the most prominent issues that they cited as justification for conducting a hunt: Gun control, global warming, anti-racism, immigration, gay rights. These are not issues in which each side is morally equal.”
Only a leftist could speak with such hubris.
Every authoritarian regime that ever existed confiscated guns.
It’s precisely why the founding fathers enshrined gun rights into the Constitution.
Global warming is used as a catch-all phrase by environmentalists whose aim is to seize control of the economy.
Saikat Chakrabarti, former chief of staff of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and architect of the so-called “Green New Deal,” admitted as much in an interview.
Those who oppose the Left’s extremist views on climate change have feasible trade-offs despite “decarbonizing” the economy overnight, which would result in mass death.
Anti-racism and gay rights are used as a cudgel to bully private companies and religious institutions, because structural discrimination based on race or sexual orientation has been prohibited for a long time.
And conflating all forms of immigration is a common trick of the Left.
Every country on the planet has border restrictions and procedures for immigration – in many cases, far more stringent than the United States – so open borders is a policy that’s championed by essentially no government.
The Salon writer’s assumptions that opposition to the Left on these issues is morally wrong shows exactly why the Left is currently so deranged.
They lack the empathy to understand anything outside their Church of Leftism.
Ken Stern, former CEO of NPR, wrote a book called Republican Like Me where he lived life as a conservative for a year to challenge his assumptions, which aligned with this Salon writer.
He changed his mind on a few issues including gun control and climate change.
This Salon writer should take notes.
Will more leftists be triggered by the fact The Hunt isn’t purely left-wing propaganda?
