You would think that Hollywood would have learned their lesson.
Our nation is in a pickle, to put it mildly. We have an infotainment industry that is determined to anger us to the point of violence, all so that they can set up cameras and broadcast the whole thing to the world. Americans bashing each other in the street, as horrific an idea as that sounds, makes for great ratings on television, allowing CNN and their kin to hike their advertising rates and rake in the money.
It’s a dirty job, but the mainstream media pigs seem to absolutely adore wallowing in it.
But there are some very real consequences to this sort of hyperbolic, bucolic imagery, as we discovered when Kathy Griffin held up a photorealistic, bloodied, decapitated wax head of President Trump.
Just 14 days later, a former Bernie Sanders campaign worker named James T. Hodgkinson attempted to assassinate the entire GOP charity baseball team.
Apparently Griffin’s dog whistle and the subsequent violence have taught us nothing, as evidenced by the press packet for a new “film”.
It’s called When Women Rule the World and the poster image — circulating at the Cannes Market and in trade publications including The Hollywood Reporter — features a bikini-clad woman (a Melania Trump-type character called Maria Putin, played by actress Anna Hera) holding two decapitated heads. One is bloodied up to look like Trump in a Make America Great Again hat and a shaggy blond wig. The other, a gray-skinned, bug-eyed zombie. “Meet the First Lady of the Future with her Heads of State,” reads the tagline for the film from writer-director-producer Sheldon Silverstein.Advertisement - story continues below
On the film’s official website, Silverstein describes himself as “an internationally accomplished” auteur who lived in Rome for 20 years and “worked with such notable directors as Sergio Leone and Federico Fellini, and was greatly influenced by these icons.” When Women Rule the World marks his directorial debut following producing credits include such projects as The Erotic Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, The Pumpkin Karver and Hazard Jack.
We can only hope that the impressionable “resistance” doesn’t take this threat as seriously as they did Griffin’s.
