As the desperation of The Resistance begins to manifest itself in violence, the entertainment industry is merrily feeding the delusions of the hate mobs.
In a perfect example of how life imitates art, a crazed theatergoer got a bit to revved up to watch the blood-soaked dystopian political fantasy “The First Purge” which pushes the buttons of the unhinged with a storyline set in the not too distant future that is decidedly intended to be a propaganda vehicle against President Trump and those who voted for him.
Police have arrested a 40-year-old goon named Bryan Morrison who couldn’t wait for the lights to go down to satisfy his most violent impulses.
Morrison who is a convicted felon with multiple violent offenses was trying to sit in reserved seating at a North Texas theater when an altercation occurred and ended with him plunging a knife “six inches” into the abdomen of the man who rightfully was entitled to the seat.

By way of The Smoking Gun “Patron Stabbed At Screening Of “Purge” Movie”:
As patrons awaited the start of the latest blood-soaked “Purge” movie, a dispute over a reserved seat ended with a Texas man plunging a knife six inches into the abdomen of a fellow moviegoer, police report.
According to investigators, Bryan Morrison, 40, sought to sit in a series of reserved seats at a Friday night showing of “The First Purge” at a theater in Sherman, a city near the Texas-Oklahoma line.
After initially being chased from seats that he didn’t have the right to, Mr. Morrison ended up getting in the fateful confrontation with a couple who were not going to allow a freaky ghoul ruin their night but they had no idea of what they were in for…
When the Honores arrived and found Morrison, seen at right, and an unknown woman sitting in their seats, a “verbal altercation” ensued, according to a criminal complaint. Morrison and his companion eventually decamped to new seats.
But when Morrison subsequently walked past the Honores and declared, “I should be able to sit where I want,” the dispute flared. Morrison, cops allege, asked Honore “something to the effect of, ‘Do you want some?’” As the men proceeded to exchange punches, Morrison allegedly stabbed Honore in the stomach.
Morrison fled the theater after plunging the knife into Honore, who was transported to a local hospital for treatment (and is expected to make a full recovery). Morrison was arrested Tuesday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony carrying a maximum 20-year prison term.
Locked up in lieu of $25,000 bond, Morrison is a convicted felon whose rap sheet includes multiple assault convictions.
Just put your eyes on this trailer because this is the epitome of the pornography of violence that is pumped out by Hollywood.
The movie had a decidedly anti-Trump message (as if you couldn’t tell from the black victims in the trailer) which was detailed by The Wrap.

Massive NRA endorsements
“The First Purge” presents the original idea of the Purge night as a sociological experiment carried out on Long Island. The NFFA says it plans to see if the Purge is something that can help reduce strife in America by allowing people to get out their aggressive feelings. Not everyone is on board with the idea, but one powerful interest group is fully supportive: the National Rifle Association. In the movie, NRA billboards encourage people to protect their Second Amendment rights and arm themselves for the experiment. Obviously, a yearly Purge would be very lucrative for gun manufacturers, since it is a huge incentive to get everyone to buy a gun, for either mayhem purposes, or just protection. Over in the real world, much has been made of the NRA’s political contributions to conservative politicians, especially as the gun control debate rages around mass shootings.
After venturing out into the Purge night to save her brother, activist Nya (Lex Scott Davis) finds herself attacked by one particularly gross lawbreaker. This guy hangs out in the sewers, Pennywise-style, and uses a literal snare to catch Nya’s leg. While she’s stuck there, he reaches out of the sewer grate to grab her between the legs. Nya gets away, but not before calling to mind Trump’s infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which he talks about how, as a star, he can “grab women by the pussy.
The First Purge Is The First Real Anti-Trump Action Moviehttps://t.co/iukQTOjSNd

The First Purge may just be the first proper anti-Trump action movie produced. It’s no secret that, despite having built his 21st Century fame by reworking his 1980s image as a quixotically-ruthless businessman in the world of reality television, U.S. President Donald Trump seems to have relatively few fans in the entertainment industry. But despite ongoing vocal opposition to many of his administration’s controversial policies by politically-active actors, filmmakers and other Hollywood professionals, few major films have taken direct thematic aim at the modern state of American politics apart from one-off jokes, oblique references or plot-points that likely only required minor tweaks to make them more (or less?) relevant than they would’ve been otherwise.
That streak appears ended, appropriately enough, as of July 4th with the wide release of The First Purge, a prequel to the moneymaking horror franchise that effectively positions itself as the first real anti-Trump action movie.
Is there any doubt that Hollywood wants blood in the streets?
They will get it in due time and the really sick thing? They will make a shitload of money off of it too.
