While I was watching The Purge, it never even crossed my mind, Modern Philosophers, that the film might have been made by time travelers who came back to warn Americans about the Presidency of Donald Trump!
Now that I’ve had some time to form Deep Thoughts on the subject, I’m beginning to think that this theory holds a lot of water.
And even if the flick wasn’t made for by Hollywood time travelers seeking to rewrite history, don’t you think there’s at least the possibility that President Trump would make The Purge a reality?
The man’s platform seems to be solidly built on hate speech, the vilifying of foreigners, and the promise of taking extreme measures to make this country great again. Plus, we know that he takes great pride in his Reality TV accomplishments.
The America depicted in The Purge was supposedly set in the 2020s. That would make it the second term of Trump’s stay at the White House. Given what you’ve heard from Donald Trump so far, Modern Philosophers, can you see a future in which he signs The Purge into law?
Now that I’ve put the idea in your head like a brain worm, you know that you are giving it serious Deep Thought.
How very Trump-like of me…
Why waste the time and money (even though Trump swears we wouldn’t be paying for it!) on a giant border wall with Mexico when you can just wait until Purge Night to kill all the people who’ve come into this country illegally?
What better way to make America great again than by allowing its citizens to exercise their right to bear arms and police the streets one night a year? Why not give red blooded Americans the honor of deciding who’s the true menace to our patriotic society?
Let’s arm the masses, rev them up with angry speeches about who and what is ruining this country, and then set them free to do the bidding of their infallible master!
We can televise it all, President Trump will be the Executive Orders Producer, and the rating will be through the roof! Better yet, they’ll be HUUUUUUUUUUUGE!
Once Americans get a taste of (blood) The Purge, they’ll want to keep (cleansing) our country great, and will insist (perhaps with a little prompting) that we get rid of term limits so that President Trump can remain in power indefinitely.
While I’m only making an ironic point on my blog, Modern Philosophers, don’t you fear the future in a country led by a man who knows nothing about diplomacy, and always seems to say the first (hateful) thing that comes to mind?
Right now, he’s only using words as weapons. What happens when he’s given the keys to our nuclear arsenal and can replace words with nuclear missiles?
Is the idea of The Purge becoming a reality under President Trump really so hard to fathom? He knows how to work his followers into a fervor, and history has proven that such leaders are often big trouble for those on the receiving end of the hate speech.
Donald Trump was campaigning in Maine today, Modern Philosophers.
Clearly, something wicked was in the air.
I spent the morning whistling the Imperial Theme because I sensed a great disturbance in the Force.
Trump was far too close for my liking.
Maybe this blog is just a collection of wild tales written by a man who has watched far too many movies.
Or just maybe, I’m on to something. You need to decide if you are going to heed my creative and entertaining Philosophical warnings before it is too late, or if you are going to sit idly by and prepare for a future where it will be legal for your neighbors and complete strangers to murder you.
Instead of voting with your heart this year, vote with your sanity.
It might just save your life!
