White House Down - A Political Fantasy
I would suggest people see the movie White House Down - which is now playing on Starz cable. Great action, good acting in the lead roles. Great CGI. Much fun.
- Spoiler Alert -
So what is the issue? Well, the problem is that since Hollywood who is often quite fond of Democrats decided that the bad guys are mostly Republicans - or least "right wing US radicals". And the arch villain of course is the Speaker of the House, who of course in real life is the highest ranking Republican. How obvious. They did miss the possibility of having the Tea Party on the roof - perhaps with special sniper rifle scopes that only shoot minorities.
The president in this movie is a Black man whom is just a great person and no doubt how the left views Obama. This person has no ego, tries to do the right thing, and even his wife and kids are just sweet people. I really grew to like this character. The problem is that I find that I like this person far more than Obama. And so again Democrats make the head Democrat look good. This man was never arrogant and not once used a teleprompter and not once asked Americans to hate other Americans, and did not kill a single US business nor attack a single item of the Bill of Rights during the course of the movie. In fact can we? can we please? Can we make Jamie Fox President?
And of course as soon as they get rid of the evil people on the "right", the President gets word that he was right all along. Peace breaks out and Iran, China, N. Korea, Cuba, Russia the Klingons and the US go singing down memory lane.
I realize that if Hollywood leaned Right then the criminals would be Democrats, and the shooters would be from the SEIU union or Teachers Union both who donate heavily Democratic, and they would be led by Bill Maher with communications provided by the Huffington Post.
But of course, not sure I would like that any better. One gets tired of political parties and ideologues in the US fighting each other while bad people outside our country like the Russians take over Crimea and now have 20,000 troops outside the Ukraine. And also there are the Chinese who seem to want to take over some Japanese islands. And then there are the radical Muslims who not only scare Israel but also are upsetting our former allies of Arab moderates in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and more who like Israel do not want war and do not see the US trying to prevent war.
It would be nice if the political yahoos stopped fighting other Americans, and started worrying about the threats outside - just my opinion.
A fine action movie. It is a shame ideology has to make some of it beyond silly. I do admit that the other alternative, the Teachers Union shooting up a White House, might be fun - but like this movie - I do not think it would be good for America in all of its messages.
