Sabotage Of A Movie

     You wouldn’t think anyone would find it desirable. You’d doubt that a movie, even one based on a true story about a heinous crime, could threaten the powers that be. And perhaps, under the circumstances Americans of a few decades ago enjoyed, you would have been correct. But not today.

     The Sound of Freedom is under siege. Reports of showings of the movie being sabotaged are now in the hundreds. The techniques vary:

  • There’s no air conditioning in the theater;
  • The movie is played without sound;
  • The movie is rotated ninety degrees;
  • There’s a narrating voice-over, as if for a blind audience;
  • The pre-movie series of commercials lasts for as much as an hour;
  • The lights of the theater remain on and bright;
  • Music or the radio is played over the movie;
  • A foul stench is introduced into the theater;
  • A fire drill announced a few minutes into the movie.

     I don’t know what can be done about this. I do know that no one on the client lists of either Jeffrey Epstein or Ghislaine Maxwell has yet been indicted. I also know that at some point, the producers will release the movie to the streaming services and for distribution on DVD. Whether anything can be done to cripple those channels, I cannot predict.

     There must be an investigation, and a reckoning.

     They who lust for power over others frequently bear other lusts as well: for sex, for money, for prestige, for exotic foods…and for helpless victims they can degrade and abuse. The correlation is powerful. I put to you all that we’ve known about it for a long time now.

     If pronouncing anathema upon the 88,000-plus governments we suffer, resolving to abjure and ignore them henceforward, and simply going about our business as best we can, trusting to the prevalence of decency and the ability of an armed people to make justice when and as necessary, hasn’t begun to appeal to you yet, what will it take?

     Apologies, Gentle Reader. This phenomenon exercises me to the limit of my patience.

     But do have a nice day.

    we are headed for a reckoning. Some see it, most don’t; but a reckoning all the same. It will not be like what anyone has imagined it to be, it will most likely be worse than that.

    And honestly, theres no stopping it now. It is just a matter of time.

    Fran, you have a nice day as well, while we can.

    But why would (((Hollywood))) be against a movie that is showing the horrors of child sex slavery???


    Unless Uncle Mel is right…

    An excellent commentary   Mr. Porretto.

    Yes, in its own way, this movie has unmasked a lot of people and institutions..many thanks to Mel Gibson whose name allowed this movie to get the audience that it has…I plan to watch it when it streams…

    I have watched both “The Sound of Freedom ” and “Nefarious” @ fmovies-dot-to. Hurry because now the sight will be attacked.

    The communist hate God. I’m surprised you took a harder turn than so many of your posts through the years.

    Maybe that’s unfair. ..

    A movie which should be double billed w/ Sound of Freedom.

    A great interview with one of the most dedicated and hardworking film makers in modern America.

    We have every intention of seeing this film, and owning copies to give away when they are available. Remus said to ‘stay away from crowds’; we have already seen of what use a theatre can be made to those who oppose…whatever it might be that week.

    Thus, we have avoided the theatres. It’s not worth the risk, now. Far too late in the day for those kinds of liberties; that ground has already been taken.

    In the meantime, it is amusing to see the endless dichotomies now trapping the left with their own ‘logic’. Observing as the left feeds upon itself is the gift that seems to keep on giving.

    This entire situation is breathtaking in its ability to exemplify ‘cognitive dissonance’.

    Keep stacking the three B’s.

    Doom porn only affects the minuscule percentage of people. If real viewer numbers were available the schadenfrued would be delicious

    Tar and feathers first, then rope for the non-repentant.

    I’m not a fan of wasting tar, considering the pothole situation in the new world’s roads.
    Chicken shit & chicken feathers seems workable.
