Hollywood is oversaturated with hard-left radicals.
These are not the same liberals of decades past.
Now a Warner Bros. director said something about Donald Trump that will boil your blood.
Hollywood has been liberal for a long time, but hardcore leftists have replaced many of the JFK Democrats of yesteryear.
The younger generation of leftists have been “educated” by flat-out Marxists in K-12 and higher education.
One young radical is film director Ángel Manuel Soto, who’s directed the upcoming Blue Beetle For Warner Bros.
In 2018, Soto tweeted, “The only thing I hope Trump has similar to Lincoln’s presidency is the way it ended.”
This is one of many instances of “assassination chic” that became trendy during Trump’s presidency.
Among some of his other radical views, Soto has said on Twitter, “You must be the dumbest piece of s**t to cross twitter, right after Trump. How stupid can you be? … Puerto Rico is a slave colony of the USA. Your passport was impossed [sic] on us, so there is nowhere else to go afer [sic] your country s***s on my land and blame us for the stink. F*** you.”
Soto also tweeted, “AmeriKKKan Dictatorship.”
However, now that the movie is in post-production and Soto is marketing his film, he’s since deleted many of his inflammatory tweets as he begs audiences to flock to his movie.
According to a synopsis of the movie, “After Jaime Reyes graduates from college and returns to his hometown Palmera City, he is chosen to become a symbiotic host to the Scarab, an ancient alien biotechnological relic that grants him a powerful exoskeleton armor, turning him into the superhero Blue Beetle.”
Soto said in a recent interview, “If you’ll help us and this movie becomes a massive f***ing hit, we’re going to see a lot of those [characters]. That’s what needs to happen…If we want to see more variety and really celebrate differences, celebrate culture, celebrate other worlds because it’s fun. The lores are so spectacular. The only way is by supporting movies. Supporting a movie like this.”
It’s amazing how leftists openly insult half the country—and the country itself—then beg people to go watch their films.
Unfortunately for Soto, he’s already turned off a huge swath of people who might’ve given the film a chance.
Based on Soto’s politics, it would be a surprise to no one if the film were unbearably “woke.”
Warner Bros. is in a state of chaos right now as the studio attempts to build out its DC Comics universe.
The studio has had several big misses, including Batgirl, which was scrapped because of disastrous test screenings.
From The New York Post:
“The DC Comics film Batgirl will be completely ‘shelved’ by Warner Bros., a top Hollywood source told The Post. That means it won’t hit theaters or the streaming service HBO Max. Fans will not see it. The reportedly $70 million movie (the source said the budget was actually more than $100 million), which was doing test screenings for audiences in anticipation of a late 2022 debut, would rank among the most expensive cinematic castoffs ever. Those tests were said to be so poorly received by moviegoers that the studio decided to cut its losses and run, for the sake of the brand’s future. It’s a DC disaster.”
Warner Bros. needs Blue Beetle to do good business but Soto’s divisive comments will not help.
