Question

I wonder when will wingnuts will figure out the thematic parallels between Daniel Craig’s new film Defiance and the Greatest Moving Picture Ever Recorded By Man (TM), Red Dawn. When they inevitably do, who will be the first wingnut blogger to paint himself as a Jewish partisan fighting the Nazis? Whoever guesses Ace of Spades, if correct, only gets half credit.

    Some would ask the question, "How could you possibly conflate American peacenik liberals with the German Nazi war machine?" I would ask the question, "How can you not?"

    I think you overlook the obvious choice of those brave, persecuted souls, that band of brothers known as the Red State Strike Force.

    I don’t know that one. How about, "cute little puppy"?

    The American Friends Service Committe is the Waffen SS of liberal fascism.

    Can you really picture Jonah Doughy Pantload roughing it in the forest with no Cheeseburgers or Baby Powder? I think not.

    I love the Defiance ad with the voice-over saying "One man stood up to tyranny", with the heroically scruffy Daniel Craig on screen. It’s like they’re directly aiming for the RSSF demo, all of them fighting the good, lonely fight in front of their monitors.

    Of course Daniel Craig isn’t as ruggedly handsome as, say, Hugh Hewitt, but who could be?

    Given that the state of Israel didn’t exist at the time the movie is set, wouldn’t the, er, ethnic nature of the partisans make them less sympathetic in the eyes of the RSSF?

    And has anyone else noticed how easy it is to type Himmler’s title – RFSS (Reichsfuhrer SS) – when referring to the Red State clowns? Anyone wonder if the choice of letters was subconciously influenced?

    Why is it that the people who are given to swooning over Red Dawn are the same people who write that beating up on the Palestinians in Gaza or the Shiites in Hezballebanon is going get them to give up the fight?

    I’ve been pretty far left for a good long time, and I love Red Dawn. Die Hard, too (but not the sequels). Watch ’em as often as I can.

    Other than the small point that "Defiance" is based on real events and "Red Dawn" was the wet-dream of John Milius, you mean?
