Universal Pictures and Blumhouse have come out with a new movie that showcases the violent intentions of liberals called ‘The Hunt’. The trailer is gory and explicit and ESPN has pulled it because of that. The film was originally called ‘Red State Vs. Blue State’. It has wealthy elitists hunting down red state “deplorables” and bloodily dispatching them for fun. Even ESPN could not stomach it after last weekend’s mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, that ended in 30 dead and several dozen wounded, so they pulled the trailer.
ESPN confirmed that the film’s trailers will no longer air on the network: “Over the Aug. 3 weekend, ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared, while AMC ran the spot during the season premiere of its drama The Preacher. It’s unclear whether the ads were identical, but the one yanked by ESPN opened with a sound resembling an emergency broadcast signal. A rep for ESPN parent Disney declined to comment on the move, but an ESPN source says no spots for the film will appear on the network in the coming weeks.”
This flick is being billed as gory satire and features actresses Hilary Swank and Betty Gilpin. The elites stay at an elegant manor and stalk and murder conservatives. The hunters are incensed by “MAGA-type” characters and their right-leaning positions. The descriptor ‘deplorables’ does not appear in the trailer, but The Daily Mail says that ‘The Hunted’ were, in fact, described as “deplorables” in the screenplay.
Jason Blum of Blumhouse despises President Trump and was booed off the stage at the 32nd Israeli Film Festival in Los Angeles last year after blaming the president for the rise of anti-Semitism. So, although it is somewhat confusing and hard to tell who the filmmakers are sympathetic towards in the movie, it’s a safe bet it’s not the deplorables.
“A lot is on the line, the last two years have been hard for all of us who cherish the freedom as citizens of this country,” the BlacKkKlansman producer said, triggering boos. “As you can see from this auditorium, it’s the end of civil discourse. We have a president who calls the press the enemy of the people. Thanks to our president, antisemitism is on the rise.”
“As Breitbart News reported:
“Blum’s hit on President Trump was seemingly the final straw for Beverly Hills Pawn star Yossi Dina, who walked up to the Blumhouse Productions founder and attempted to physically remove him from the stage.
“As Blum was being booed, he told the crowd, “And now I’m being physically removed, which is why Trump is not the right guy for us.”
Universal is about to release a movie in which liberal "elites" hunt and gun down rural "deplorables" for sport. ESPN pulled ads and others might follow. https://t.co/HICDaJiQaF

“Despite the controversy, executives reportedly intend to stand by Blum, as they view the film as “a satire addressing an issue of great social importance.”
“As the Hollywood Reporter notes:
“While one high-level Universal source says the studio has pulled some ads that are beginning to air and appear online “for content and placement,” others say the matter is still under discussion internally. A major ad blitz on television and the web had been planned for the beginning of September, says one insider. A trailer is already online.
“Given the fraught political climate — particularly in the wake of the attack in El Paso, which was motivated by anti-immigrant bigotry — studio sources say Universal is evaluating its plans in what one called “a fluid situation.” A high-level insider says top executives want to stand by Blum, one of the studio’s most prolific and successful producers, as well as filmmaker Craig Zobel, and see the project as a satire addressing an issue of great social importance. But this person says plans could change “if people think we’re being exploitative rather than opinionated.”
“From a business perspective, The Hunt presents a gamble for Universal in these divided times. The satire Assassination Nation, which also pitted the woke versus the unwoke in uber-violent fashion, represented the top sale at Sundance 2018 at $10 million. But the film fizzled upon its release later that year, earning just $2 million with no international rollout. Says one person involved with that film, “We thought people would get the joke.”‘

NBC Universal is still planning on releasing ‘The Hunt’ despite the massive backlash. Well, why not? They hate President Trump and this is a fun way to harass him. What they don’t count on is ticking off the entire nation with this crap.
NBC’s Universal Pictures, which shares parent company Comcast with NBC News and MSNBC, told Fox News on Wednesday that the movie’s marketing campaign would be “temporarily paused” on the heels of the tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio. But they won’t move the release date.

One character asks, “Did anyone see what our ratf–ker-in-chief just did?” The movie has caused outrage with conservatives calling it everything from “political violence” to “sick murder fantasies about right-wingers.” And that’s being kind. “Every year, a bunch of elites kidnap normal folk like us and hunt us for sport,” another character says. The group lists where they are all from, which includes Wyoming, Mississippi, and Florida.
Rush Limbaugh slammed the movie three ways from Sunday. From WND:
“Limbaugh said on Wednesday, “This isn’t satire, folks. This is fantasy. This is a dream! This is something they would wish to do, the people behind this. This is something that if it did happen. … You know, we’re getting a heads-up here. If something like this does happen someday, don’t expect condemnation for it. Expect the media and the left to say, ‘Well, what do you expect when people elect a guy like Trump, an open racist and white supremacist? What do you expect!’”
“Limbaugh said the elites – leftists in Washington and Hollywood – are “not gonna ever condemn this – and in the process, they are marginalizing themselves even further, and here come our old buddies in the media unable to condemn it.”
“He continued, “Rather, looking for artistic expression, the creative talent, the cinematography (and all of that) that makes up this vast work of art. But we’re dealing with a sick bunch of people, and it is my contention that all of this is creating a backlash and an increasing level of Trump support as evidenced by this fearful New York Times column today reporting, ‘Millions of Americans who did not like the president in 2016 now say they do.’”
“Basically, this is a movie where white liberal elites go hunting with guns for Trump supporters for the people Hillary Clinton called ‘deplorables,’” he charged.”
Several studios have refused to buy the film because of its vicious political plot. The mask is coming off now on the left and real violence won’t be far behind. This movie isn’t an outlier, it’s liberal mainstream fantasy they intend to make real.

B-List Actors Alyssa Milano & Rosie O’Donnell Head Trump ‘Impeachment Task Force’
You would think this is hilarious satire..but it’s not. Has-been actors truly believe that America looks to them for political advice. I know..I can’t stop laughing.
This is how insane and delusional the left is. Remember how they told us to accept the 2008 election results and just deal with it? Here we are…and they still can’t handle that Trump is President. They stay on twitter for hours..ranting, whining and lying about the President. The left should never ever allowed in power. Let these lunatics be a reminder to you when you go to vote in 2020.
Dear Hollywood has-beens, Americans don’t give a flying crap about what you have to say. You ain’t going to impeach the President. He’s not going anywhere. For the sake of America..go away. Don’t lecture the people about politics. No one looks to you for what’s going on in our country.
Just wait until Trump wins 2020…..
Via The Daily Wire:
If you’re worried about the current state of democracy, fear not: Alyssa Milano, Rosie O’Donnell, and their rich anti-Trump friends are here to save America … by working to remove the duly elected president from office.
Feel better now?
According to a Newsweek report, a group called The Democratic Coalition has created a star-studded “Impeachment Task Force” (seriously) “seeking to hold Trump ‘accountable for his betrayal of America.’”
The task force is “designed to lead rapid response to Trump during the impeachment inquiry,” according to The Democratic Coalition co-founder and Twitter #Resistance king Scott Dworkin.
We are now 33% towards our goal for the #ImpeachmentTaskForce! Help us get over the finish line so we can focus on the real work—and not fundraising. You can help out by donating, tweeting out the link and telling others to tweet out the link as well. Thx! https://t.co/dVCUJYq9tg
— Scott Dworkin (@funder) October 4, 2019
In addition to Milano and O’Donnell, the group has landed actors Ron Perlman, George Takei, Debra Messing, and Tom Arnold to use their “massive social media following to protect House Democrats in the front lines of the impeachment inquiry on Trump.”
“The task force launched a fundraising effort and basic plan on Thursday. The group has already started meeting and is set to go live with its website next week,” Newsweek reported.
Dworkin pointed to “Trump’s propaganda machine” as motivation in the creation of his elite task force.
“Trump’s propaganda machine is going to be in overdrive for the foreseeable future, so we need to be fighting every day, in every way,” he said.
“For now, impeachment is the only way to hold him accountable for his betrayal of America,” the task force’s chairman Jon Cooper added.
Dworkin is extremely optimistic that his ragtag group of celebs “will without a doubt, absolutely, overpower Trump’s propaganda machine.”
As you might recall, during the 2016 presidential election, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton had scores of celebrities come out to support her publicly — such as Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, LeBron James, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Bruce Springsteen, Robert De Niro, Lady Gaga, Jon Bon Jovi, Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, and many, many others. As you might also recall, Hillary lost the 2016 election.
But it’s different this time. Or something.
“We’ve been one of the key groups fighting his propaganda machine for three and a half years,” Dworkin bragged. “We’ve learned a lot. And it’s kind of led us to this moment.”

WATCH: Photo Of College Student Praying Over Deputy In Restaurant Goes VIRAL
In today’s highly charged political climate, it’s always nice to have something in the news that isn’t negative. Last weekend, we got some rare, good news for a change.
A sheriff’s deputy & his wife were dining at a restaurant in east-central Florida when they were approached by a young man who asked if he could pray for the officer.
The encounter left the deputy’s wife in tears, and the rest of us cheering.
The Tampa Bay Times reported:
“For all of the venom and vitriol that fill our social media feeds, there are feel-good stories, too.
A reminder came this past weekend, when the wife of a Florida deputy shared a photo on Facebook describing an encounter at a Zaxby’s restaurant in DeLand in which a young man approached her husband, Cameron, and offered to pray over him for his protection.
“Tonight was a night that I will never forget. This picture is a reminder of God’s constant love and perfect timing. Tonight we had an amazing encounter with an incredible young man named Juan. He came up to Cameron and asked is he could pray over him and his protection. After crying my eyes out we got to have an amazing conversation with this gentleman. He was on FIRE for God and you could feel His presence in the room. He said that he had felt compelled to talk to us and to pray over Cameron, Justine Tucker wrote.”
Tonight was a night that I will never forget. This picture is a reminder of God’s constant love and perfect timing….
“The man, Juan O’Neal, is a student at Stetson University, according to his Facebook page.
As of Wednesday morning, the post had more than 42,000 reactions, 4,900 comments and 21,000 shares.
The post especially connected with Facebook users thirsting for positive news about people in their community.
“This is one of the main reasons why I stay connected to FB,” responded Reginald D. Alston. “There is love, kindness, compassion, respect, and general sense of caring among most people that seems to take a backseat to negativity and chaos all too often.”
“With everything that is wrong in America today, thank you for sharing this,” wrote Emily Broome Garrison. “It’s proof there’s still so much that is right!”
“People need these stories,” echoed Rachelle Bman.
Said Max Ludwig, “It’s great to wake up and see a beautiful post like this.”
“This gave me goosebumps!” wrote Monica Diaz.
Wondered Robert Cuccio, “Why are there not more stories of wonderful people like Juan?”
Tucker posted a segment from the local Fox station that covered the interaction.

WTVM9 reported of O’Neal:
“O’Neal says he never intended for the photo to go viral. In fact, he didn’t intend for a photo to be taken at all.
He says that he simply wanted to pray over Volusia County Sheriff’s Deputy Cameron Tucker.
“He grew up you know, dad is a [retired] police officer, a [retired] detective with the Columbus Police Department. So he knows some of the struggles, some of the things his dad had to go through,” said Juan’s mother Leisa O’Neal. “So for him to see another officer, he had an instant connection I’m sure, so it’s no big deal. I’m sure he was compelled to pray for him for everything that is going on in the world and the community so I think it was something he felt like he needed to do.”
“I just did what I felt like God was telling me to do,” said Juan O’Neal.
Juan is a senior at Stetson University in Florida. His mother says he is planning on commissioning into the U.S. Army in May.”
While all around us we seem to be bombarded with negativity, it’s great to see some of the next generation who haven’t forgotten what’s important in this life.
Hats off to O’Neal, and may he be successful in his endeavors.
