This is not a satire story. Hollywood actually has a movie coming out next month in which liberals hunt “deplorables.” The movie bills itself as a “satire.” From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:
It took several weekends of mass shootings for Universal Pictures to yank ads for (but not postpone, or cancel) an R-rated ‘murder-porn’ movie in which elite liberals hunt Trump supporters for sport.
“Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?” asks one character early in the screenplay for The Hunt – set to open Sept. 27. “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables,” is the reply.
The film from producer Jason Blum – a former executive with Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s Miramax – was also behind The Purge, a movie similarly about hunting human beings.
Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.
Over the Aug. 3 weekend, ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared, while AMC ran the spot during the season premiere of its drama The Preacher. It’s unclear whether the ads were identical, but the one yanked by ESPN opened with a sound resembling an emergency broadcast signal. A rep for ESPN parent Disney declined to comment on the move, but an ESPN source says no spots for the film will appear on the network in the coming weeks. –Hollywood Reporter
Meanwhile, the movie itself has caused outrage amid one of the most politically divided periods in recent American history.
“Leftists are making movies about killing you and want to disarm you,” writes Newsmax host and former NYPD officer John Cardillo.
