‘The First Purge’ Is Nothing More Than Shameless Anti-Trump Propaganda [VIDEO]
Ladies and gentleman, I have some very bad news for fans of “The Purge” series.
“The First Purge” is one of the worst movies I’ve ever seen; it’s nonstop propaganda about how much white people, conservatives, the NRA and everybody who isn’t on the far left absolutely sucks. Now, let me start by saying that I loved the first two films in the series.
“The Purge” and “The Purge: Anarchy” were both very entertaining horror films. There was almost no politics brought into either film. “The Purge: Election Year” started to spin up the politics, which left me worried the newest one would fully dive into the anti-Trump politics. Would they really ruin this series to make a political point? (RELATED: The Latest ‘Purge’ Film Has Some Surprising Box Office Numbers)
Turns out the answer to that question is the producers didn’t even hesitate. I won’t spoil the film for those of you who still might want to see it, but I’ll give you some general feelings about it. The hero of the film is a drug dealer pumping out poison onto the streets, almost all the villains are white guys and Russian military operators sent to Staten Island to kill as many black people as possible, the government is endorsed by the NRA as they flood the streets with guns, the government wants to kill off poor people by ending entitlement programs, and that’s only scratching the surface.
There is a scene at the end where the villains, who appear to be some kind of modern Nazis, are killed. Seems straightforward enough. Except, people in the theater were cheering whenever a white person on screen was killed. It was one of the most bizarre things I’ve ever seen. Yes, people were cheering inside a movie theater when people died on screen.
In one of the most cringeworthy moments of the whole movie, a female character is groped and responds by referencing Trump’s infamous “p***y” comment. It’s complete absurdity.
This series used to be awesome. I’d watch any movie like the first two. This last one I think successfully ruined the whole thing for me. I’m not going to keep going to movies where we just slaughter white people for entertainment value, glamorize drug dealers as modern day freedom fighters and make the writing so bad that there’s no attempt to conceal the liberal bent.
Congrats, Hollywood. You ruined a great series.
