Talk about fortunate timing. I’m referring to the producers of the movie Crawl (above), an alligators-and-hurricane thriller that opens just as Hurricane Barry barrels into the southern coast.

Although I suppose it won’t set any box-office records in New Orleans.

Last week I said that Stranger Things doesn’t appear to be overly political.

Can’t say the same for Netflix, which caved to social justice warriors and will no longer allow smoking on shows like Stranger Things.

What’s next — going to use digital technology to delete Humphrey Bogart’s cigarettes from old movies like Casablanca?

Oh, hell. I shouldn’t have said that. They’re probably working on it right now.

America’s biggest problem? I think YouTube pundit Tim Pool nails it in this video:

Good golly, The Donald is in for some heavy criticism no matter what happens during tomorrow’s promised purge of illegal immigrants.

You just know that the media is salivating at the prospect of documenting “families torn apart,” making Trump look as cruel as possible. Democrats will liken it to Jews being crammed onto trains bound for Auschwitz.

But if Trump calls the purge off or limits it to just a small number of violators, the right will howl that, when it comes to immigration, Trump is once again simply a boy calling “wolf.”

Stranger Things premiered its third season and, thanks to our cultural wars, I was seeing politics everywhere in the first episode.

The villains are Russians. This must be a dig at Trump, and Netflix is virtue signaling to the Russian-collusion crowd, right?

Then again, the story takes place in 1985, when the Cold War was still in full swing, and so who better to play the bad guys than Russians? So maybe it’s not a political statement.

 

One of the evil Russians is a smoker. This must be a nod to anti-smoking fanatics, right?

Then again, the coolest, funniest guy in the show, Sheriff Hopper (pictured above), is also a smoker. So maybe it’s not a political statement.

 

Also, if you support the Hollywood boycott of Georgia and its abortion laws, will you put your money where your mouth is?

You should not be watching Stranger Things, because it is filmed in, you guessed it, Georgia.

I’m not sure what these Democrat presidential candidates hope to accomplish with their relentless hyperbole about Trump and, by association, his supporters. Trump is a white nationalist, a neo-Nazi, a homophobe, a misogynist, and a rapist, they say. How could 60 million people vote for him?

So, if you voted for Trump, you hear this rhetoric and might think: “Wow. I supported a guy who is a homophobic, racist, rapist, Nazi, white nationalist – I must be really terrible and must atone by voting for (fill-in-the-blank Democrat).”

Or you might think: “These Democrats are no saints. They lie and slander and will say anything to get elected, including insults thrown at me. I’m no worse than they are. I’m voting for Trump again.”

Which option do you think Trump voters will take?

I’m not a big fan of adults using their children to make political points. But come on now, you idiots are threatening this cutie pie?
