    Sorry...double post. Not sure why, some kind of error message appeared on my first posting.

    Kind of ironic...and very thought provoking if truth be told.

    I know of some liberal progressives that will not see the satire and think this is a “how to” video.

    That's what I'm afraid of. They will consider it justified, too.

    What do you think happens to those on the right (or even on the moderate left) whenever the far left takes over any country?




    Cambodia (watch The Killing Fields if you are into movies more than reading history, but I recommend you pick up a book, First They Killed My Father, written by a woman remembering the events when she was a child, and written as though seen through the eyes of a child)
    China
    USSR
    Vietnam
    Cuba

    It's not like we do not have history to go by. This is what the far left wants. I am surprised that any of you are surprised.

    I'm not surprised at all. It's amazing we haven't seen this before, and it was a matter of time.

    On one level, it's a liberal elite fantasy, taken beyond the Twitterverse from what they wished for us, into a movie fable. On another level, this depicts the liberal elites as the most evil we can imagine, not a good look. If the hunted deplorables turn the tables in the movie and become the hunters, that would be...interesting.

    I'm surprised that you think we're so oblivious to history. Even younger people are aware of the lessons of the past. I think the socialists believe they are dealing with a demographic that is ignorant of what's come before. To some extent they're correct because we've really not put up any real show of force or resistance yet. They shouldn't take our complacency for weakness.

    One deplorable guy catches a shooter trying to sneak hunt in the woods and takes him out with a sharp stick. Last round of liberal is fired (sneaking with finger on trigger) and the last round he has.

    Sling rifle, hunt the buddy with libs knife. 2 down. 2 rifles, ammo and the hunt begins. 3 deps team up and 2 cover from distance while 3rd goes in to mansion and 2 more libs down with club and knife.

    That story line continues until all libs are well tied and delivered to cops in dep. state where law is still reasonable and followed..

    No guns fired by deps and no one killed.

    Hey, I just wrote a new screenplay summary. Send me money so I can get this going.

    Isn't that evil in fact what's actually happening today? How many articles have we seen where these socialists have blatantly stated that they want us dead? They've reached the point where they have no compunction in openly stating their intentions. If that doesn't wake up those of us who may still be doubting I don't know what will.

    How the movie turns out shouldn't concern us really. We know what the socialists are actually heading to. The only question is when do we stop playing nice.

    The only thing I thought was it looks like another variation of “The Most Dangerous Game" short story (1924) with contemporary cultural references to make it “relatable”.

    I don't really have an issue with the movie. I understand advertising it may be problematic due to the pubic's reactionary and emotional nature, but this concept of a movie (people hunting people for sport) has been done many times. Perhaps this particular socio-political angle (Leftists hunting conservatives) hasn't been done but I probably prefer that then the typical 'redneck gun lovers hunting innocent, educated liberals' stereotype.

    Then let the Games begin. I'm sure some of us deplorable s can explain the rules to them. It will also be a perfect opportunity for many mouthpieces to put their stuff on the line and see what they are made of or if they run home to mama.

    The little bit I have read about it, I think that is exactly what happens.
