New movie ‘The Hunt’ depicts liberal elites hunting Trump supporters for sport

In the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton won the bi-coastal “blue states”, whereas Donald Trump won the “red states” in the heartland — what the MSM call “fly over country” and liberal elites like Katie Couric call “this great unwashed middle of the country”.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, in a speech at an LGBT fundraiser in Manhattan on September 10, 2016, Hillary Clinton called Trump’s supporters “a basket of deplorables” who are “irredeemable” racists, homophobes and xenophobes.

Now there’s a movie depicting rich liberal elites hunting and killing “deplorables”.

On September 27, 2019, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions will release an ultra-violent, R-rated “horror thriller” movie, The Hunt, depicting rich elites hunting Americans in fly-over red states like Arkansas, for sport.

The Hunt is produced by (((Jason Blum))), directed by (((Craig Zobel))), written by (((Damon Lindelof))) and Nick Cuse, and stars Hillary Swank, Emma Roberts, Betty Gilpin, and Ike Barinholtz.

Here’s the trailer, which ESPN pulled over the weekend because of the El Paso and Dayton mass shootings.

From Breitbart:

The film, which has been described as a gory satire featuring actresses Hilary Swank and Betty Gilpin, follows a group of elites who stalk and murder conservatives in red states. The hunters are fueled by their hatred of the “MAGA-type” characters and their right-leaning positions. While the term “deplorables” may not be explicitly stated in the trailer, Daily Mail notes that the “hunted” were, in fact, described as “deplorables” in the screenplay.

The film was originally called Red State Vs. Blue State,” the Daily Mail reports. 

It is not clear whether the filmmakers are sympathetic to the “Deplorables” or the “hunters.” Nevertheless, Blumhouse founder Jason Blum is a notorious Trump-hater who was booed off stage at the 32nd Israeli Film Festival in Los Angeles last year after blaming the president for the rise of anti-Semitism.

Hollywood Reporter quotes from The Hunt‘s screenplay:

“Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?” one character asks…. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “From a business perspective, The Hunt presents a gamble for Universal in these divided times.”

That’s because a similar movie — the so-called black comedy Assassination Nation, a 2018 movie written and directed by (((Sam Levinson))) — had bombed in the box office. Like The Hunt, Assassination Nation also pitted liberals against conservatives in very violent fashion. Although the movie represented the top sale at Sundance 2018 at $10 million, Assassination Nation fizzled upon its release, earning just $2 million with no international rollout. Says one person involved with that film, “We thought people would get the joke.”

Update (August 11, 2019)

Gateway Pundit reports that President Trump complained about The Hunt in a press conference on Friday, August 9, before leaving for vacation. He said: “Hollywood is racist.… what they’re doing with the kind of movies they’re putting out — it’s actually very dangerous for our country.”

The next day, August 10, Universal announced it was cancelling the film’s release in a statement that reads:

While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film. We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.

“Now is not the right time to release this film” suggests that Universal Pictures has every intentions to release the execrable The Hunt sometime in the future, probably straight to video.

They all knew about Matt Lauer: Friends/associates joked about "C*ck of the Rock's" sexcapades at 2008 roast

Matt Lauer
From Daily Mail: Former NBC executive Jeff Zucker who claimed to have never heard ‘a whisper’ of Matt Lauer’s sexual misconduct joked about his in-office antics at an explicit comedy roast in 2008 which was described at the time as ‘three hours of d*** jokes’.
Zucker, who worked with Lauer on Today between 1992 and 2000, was among several guest speakers at the event.
Earlier this week, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough said he had to leave it because it was full of jokes about Lauer ‘pushing himself on people’ and ‘having sex with employees’.
While Zucker’s jokes were by no means the most graphic and none centered on harassment or assault, he won laughs from the room by discussing Lauer’s quirky sexual habits.  ‘I don’t want to say Matt is a germophobe, but he’s the only guy I know who uses Purell both before and after he masturbates,’ was one remark. In another crude inference, he told the room: ‘It’s good to see Matt up here and not under my desk.’
The jokes were part of the Friar’s Club Roast at the Hilton Midtown in New York City.
Martha Stewart, one of the other guest speakers, declared to applause: ‘I hear NBC executives call Matt the C**k of the Rock,’ a reference to the network’s Manhattan headquarters. 
There is no footage of the event because cameras were banned except for one which snapped Tom Cruise, another guest speaker, at the start of the event.
Some but not all of the jokes were recorded by a Village Voice editor who took notes under his table. His contemporaneous report of the event resurfaced this week after Zucker’s claim that he had ‘never heard a whisper’ of Lauer’s newly-alleged impropriety.
‘Just got back from the Hilton in midtown after three hours of d*** and p***y  jokes from some of the biggest stars of TV and film,’ wrote The Voice’s Tony Ortega at the time.
The fact that the audience was comprised of 1,900 media and entertainment insiders makes current proclamations of shock at Lauer’s recent firing and alleged misconduct against junior staffers and assistants increasingly unsettling.
‘This was a comedic roast, but there was clearly a vein of truth running through all those jokes. You had Katie Couric, Meredith Vieira and Jeff Zucker all standing up there joking about his sex in the office, his kinkiness.’
‘They all knew,’ one media executive who was present told Fox News.  It is not known which other NBC executives attended. President Donald Trump, who relished Lauer’s firing last week and declared NBC and Comcast ‘fake news’, was also there.
Noah Oppenheim, president of NBC news, has insisted he was not aware of any complaints as has Andy Lack, NBC’s chairman who announced Lauer’s firing last week.
Current staffers say all were aware but formed a ‘boys’ club’ to protect Lauer and sweep complaints ‘under the carpet’.
NBC stars Meredith Vieira, Katie Couric, Martha Stewart and Bob Saget were among other speakers who took the jokes at the 2008 further. Vieira joked about both her and Couric having sex with Lauer.
‘Look at Katie Couric. She juggled Matt’s balls for six years.  ‘That’s three years per ball. She squeezed those suckers so tight, she left nothing for me. Thanks, Katie,’ she said.

Katie ‘unwashed’ Couric reinvents herself

If it weren’t for a recent TV commercial, I would not know that Katie Couric, 59, is the new face of Yahoo! News — new only to me because she’s been the anchor of Yahoo Global News since 2014, with an annual salary of $10 million.

Here’s a video from about a month ago of Couric visiting Buffalo, NY, for a new Yahoo News series, “Rebuilding America,” where you see Couric repeatedly doing the “I’m just an ingénue” gummy toothy grin that had first endeared her as “America’s sweetheart” to NBC’s Today audience so many years ago. (She was a co-anchor of Today beginning in 1991.)

Alas, when I see her gummy grin, all I can think of is what she once said about Middle America, as reported by Howard Kurtz of the Daily Beast (note: The Daily Beast had taken down the article, but it is referred to by John Hudson of The Atlantic on October 28, 2010):

Katie Couric is feeling liberated.

Not because she is nearing the end of her five-year contract as CBS anchor—although there’s an unexpected plot twist on that front—but because she’s been spending less time in the studio. You can hear it in her voice.

“It’s great for me to get out of the chair and into the world,” she says. “I started out as a reporter, and I still enjoy reporting.” […]

That’s why Couric has spent recent weeks in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston and New Brunswick, New Jersey. She is touring what she calls “this great unwashed middle of the country” in an effort to divine the mood of the midterms.

That’s what this woman thinks of us — “unwashed” little people.

Frankly, at 59, Couric’s gummy grin is more disingenuous than ingénue, if she ever was one.

RINO Lisa Murkowski Wants Obama to Succeed

Joe Miller and the spoiler


The Senate election in Alaska is still undetermined because of the slow counting of thousands of write-in ballots, but it looks increasingly likely that spoiler Lisa Murkowski may win.
Murkowski had lost the GOP primary to TEA Party favorite Joe Miller. Addicted to power as a member of the bipartisan political ruling class (her father was Alaska’s former senator and governor), Murkowski stayed in the race for the Senate as a write-in candidate, determined to split Alaska’s conservative and independent votes.
In a sit-down interview with CBS’s Katie Couric — she who disdainly called Middle America the “unwashed” –Murkowski exposed her RINO nature for all to see.
She said the message she’s hearing “loud and clear” from Alaskans is COMPROMISE:

“I will tell you, I am not one of those who wants Obama to fail. If he does well, that means the country’s doing well. We don’t have time as a nation to spend all of what we do blocking. We have got to figure out how we get to a point where we can be sitting around the table and talking about these difficult problems and advancing some solutions.”

In other words, Murkowski wants Obama to succeed — in destroying America. Grrrr…. I will say no more before I get myself banned from my own blog, but here’s a hint:

Liberal Witches

Why does 68-year-old Behar think the world wants to see her cleavage?


This morning, on that TV show of hectoring carping crones called “The View,” Joy Behar finally stripped away all pretences and showed the world her true ugly face.
Calling a political ad by Nevada Tea Party favorite and GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle “a Hitler youth commercial” that foments racial divisiveness, a hysterical Behar called Angle a “bitch” who’s “going to hell,” and “a moron on top of being evil.”
Here’s Angle’s campaign ad:
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIkNAA2y4I4&feature=player_embedded]
Then there’s the other liberal witch, CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric.

Couric au naturel, sans makeup


As reported by Howard Kurtz of the Daily Beast, Couric says she is feeling “liberated” because she’s been spending less time in the studio and more time on the road to gauge the mood of the midterm elections. Couric said “It’s great for me to get out of the chair and into the world. I started out as a reporter, and I still enjoy reporting, [touring] this great unwashed middle of the country.”
And CBS wonders why her Evening News is stuck being the lowest rated of all the network evening news….
Hey, Katie! We inhabitants of Middle-America may be “unwashed” toothless hillbillies who “cling to our bibles and our guns,” but we’re still smart enough to shun you and your faux news. LOL
