As the liberty movement and alternative media make more progress by the day, the pro-establishment message in many of our news and entertainment outlets only becomes more obvious.
Mainstream news too often enforces the false left vs. right dichotomy, and many big-name Hollywood stars have abandoned their past protests of misuse of government power and foreign interventions to fall in line to support any policy with the Obama administration's name on it. For many celebrities, any mention of Obama’s continuation of Bush Administration policies, such as NSA spying and the hawkish drone program, is strictly ignored. Now, Hollywood has released its latest piece of political propaganda to distract us from the real issues, a recent film called White House Down.
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD
White House Down begins with a DC police officer (Channing Tatum) interviewing for a job with the Secret Service to work for a fictional President played by Jamie Foxx. Foxx's character, a Democrat, is in the process of signing an international peace treaty to withdraw all US troops and close all US military bases in the Middle East. Because of this treaty, many defense contractors and career military will lose large sums of money, and the fictional Republicans are outraged at President Jamie Foxx. The President is shown on TV saying, “the pen is stronger than the sword.” As the American Conservative's review commented:
White House Down” must have been written in the heady days when President Obama moved into the White House. A new day was dawning. Gone would be the reckless militarism of the cowboy Republican regime of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. We now had a sensitive and—glory be, black!—President in the Oval Office.
Of course, it sometimes takes an embarrassing amount of time for script to be turned into movie and released at the box office. This movie thus debuts when Barack, no longer a sensitive soul trying to bring peace to the Mideast, is making Dubya look like a wuss by comparison. Not to worry. Just throw in more explosions and right-wing villains. Logic and ideas have no place in a movie anyway.
Needless to say, the screenwriters and director are completely indiscreet with their agenda, as the characters bear such a strong resemblance to current public figures that it can be no accident.
