Charles Bronson for President

Charles BronsonVia the First Church of Mutterhals:

I’ve been watching the Death Wish movies all week on AMC. Quake loves them dearly for the wet explosions and hand cannons. I am amazed that these films ever saw the light of day.

The story goes as follows: Paul Kersey (Charles Bronson) is forced into violence by so many thugs and cretins, who run roughshod over New York city like a band of vikings. Kersey never really wants to spill blood, it’s just that the aforementioned thugs will not stop killing and raping his loved ones. The cops are no help either. They are either woefully incompetent or believe Kersey to be just as bad as those he hunts. Paul Kersey has to be the unluckiest man in the history of film.

These are laughably bad films and in no way do they represent reality. But something about them struck me as being fairly accurate, and that something was the sheer panic that some people exhibit right now. These people seem to feel that gangs of colored folks and sexual deviants are perched right outside their door waiting to strike. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you to the official film series of the Tea Party movement.

    In the first movie the character Paul Kersey was portrayed as a strikingly stereotypical peace loving liberal who’d never fired a gun. A polar opposite of what he became after his wife’s brutal murder and rape.

    Is this the story of the average teabagger? Probably not. Teabaggers are not generally ex-liberals.
    I see what the author means by ‘the sheer panic that some people exhibit”, but the comparison is a bit of reach and pretty pointless -almost Glenn Beck-ish

      I agree… Almost a tempest in a TEApot but why bring in bad films for an even bad argument when the reality is far more mundane.
