The Purge – Movie attacks 2nd Amendment

Posted by Troy on 9th June 2013 in Entertainment

What the?  I had no desire to see The Purge.  However, now I have the desire to tell others to skip this movie as well.  The director has come out and said that this movie is an attack on the NRA, that the government in the movie was replaced by an NRA type organization called the New Founding Fathers (a name a Tea Party group may have come up with).  So what would a Tea Party group do if they took over the government in 2022?  Obviously they would not try to instill some sort of Constitutional values regarding small government at the Federal level.  Instead, they would have a 12 hour period where everyone could commit a crime without fear of criminal prosecution.  Yes, that does sound like what they would do, wouldn’t it?  Makes sense…  I won’t go into the asinine point that police protection is provided by states and municipalities, not the Feds… but whatever.  Here’s where the premise of the movie breaks down: Do you not go out and rape and murder because you fear getting caught or because you are a moral person?  The fact of the matter is that the police could do NOTHING if the bulk of the people raised up at any one time.  Nor could the military, honestly.  In fact, one of the concepts of the movie is that the only crime is that you can’t kill a government official.  The NRA and Tea Party members would be the first to tell you that the Second Amendment is all about standing up to government officials.  This is the way this movie would go down in reality:  On the first day of 12 hours worth of legal crime, every law abiding citizen would arm themselves out of necessity.  Anyone trying to commit said crimes would be killed in the first day.  With the bulk of the neer-do-wells dead, all future legal crime days would be null and void because any surviving criminals would be too scared to commit a crime on that day and would wait for a regular day when most people were not so armed.  See how that works?  There would not be annual bouts where the good and decent people are killed by murderous bastards.  And, of course, this also assumes that the next day, you’d be perfectly willing to go about your life the same as you always had and not say, “Jim!  You bastard!  You raped my girlfriend!  Now you die!”  Which would happen all the time and no jury would convict you.  Again, the premise of the movie is absolutely retarded.  Hollywood continues to make attack after attack on our values.  According to Hollywood, the South is nothing but racist bigots, but why is it that every time I see racial police brutality, it’s in bloody California?  Hollywood has no problem making money off guns and violence and at the same time demonizes the rights of law abiding citizens to own guns.  They shove Cloud Atlas and other communist/liberal propaganda down our throats (not to mention anything by Michael Moore) and blackball movies like Atlas Shrugged or similar conservative styled documentaries.  Again, I would urge anyone that cares for their Second Amendment rights to avoid this movie.  First of all, it’s going to be stupid, but also because you should not reward Hollywood for trying to brainwash us against our own rights.

Long Live the Constitution!
