New Hollywood Film “The Hunt” Features Liberal Elites Hunting “Deplorables” for Sport

New Hollywood Film “The Hunt” Features Liberal Elites Hunting “Deplorables” for Sport

“Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

A new movie set for release this September called The Hunt is suspending its ad campaign in the wake of the shootings in El Paso and Dayton. The plot of the film is as political as it is disgusting.

The story is about “deplorables” hunted legally by liberal elites for sport. This is essentially political murder-porn for progressives.

I have seen ads for the film and wasn’t surprised by the premise because it’s from the same people who created The Purge in 2013.

I did not know about the political angle of the film until I read this piece from Matt Margolis at PJ Media:

Hollywood Film Depicts Trump Supporters Being Hunted for Sport by Liberals

Kathy Griffin claims she can’t get work following her photoshoot with a decapitated and bloody Trump head, but don’t let that fool you. Hollywood clearly still likes the idea of promoting violence against people who aren’t good and obedient leftists, because Universal Pictures is set to release a thriller called The Hunt on September 27, which features left-wing “elites” hunting Trump supporters for sport.

In the past few days we’ve been hearing a lot about how Donald Trump’s rhetoric is apparently to blame for the El Paso shooting, yet Hollywood apparently lacked the foresight to think that a movie promoting violence against “deplorables” might be in bad taste until after the shootings in El Paso and Dayton, as only now is Universal rethinking their promotional strategy for the film.

Kim Masters of the Hollywood Reporter makes the underlying message of the film clear:

Ads Pulled for Gory Universal Thriller ‘The Hunt’ in Wake of Mass Shootings (Exclusive)

In the wake of a trio of deadly massacres, the studio is evaluating its strategy for the R-rated Blumhouse satire in which elites stalk “deplorables.”

“Did anyone see what our ratfucker-in-chief just did?” one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up. Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.

Here’s the trailer, if you care to watch it:

Now for the really crazy part. This film was advertised during the CNN Democratic debates last week. I tweeted about it during a commercial break:

I wasn’t the only person who noticed:

As I am writing this, CNN is holding a town hall event on gun violence. I wonder if anyone will ask why the network ran ads for this film during the Democratic debates.

The overseas box office for this film will be phenomenal.

    LOL, only a bunch of foreigners could believe the looney left would have any idea how to hunt anything, much less a group of deplorables.

    I’d guess somewhere in the neighborhood of 90% of all hunters would not identify with the loons on the left.

rustyshamrock | August 8, 2019 at 5:10 pm

Maybe they could just herd all the deplorables onto a baseball field and open up on them there.

Subotai Bahadur | August 8, 2019 at 5:17 pm

They are now claiming it is “satire”. It is wish fulfillment, and as noted Democrat porn. Those of the Left who do not oppose this, de facto support it. Keep that in mind. Might want to keep an eye on the bumper stickers of cars around you.

Just in case anyone wants to know who is behind this and took part in it for whatever historical reference purpose, here is the full cast and crew listing including techs, writers, producers, etc. from IMDB:

    It is pure Democrat/Communist/Leftist Projection.

    In the past Hollywood would have shelved such a film – sometimes permanently I think.

    “Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

    We all know that Hillary looked at her followers, knew that they are deplorables, and then tried to convince them that we are deplorable, simply because we had her number and could not stand her.

All in the name of art…..
You know it’s funny, I’ve noticed over the years that the more libs enjoy these kinds of fantasy scenarios, the more they find themselves removed from actual people, and their vote.

Are babies… fetuses out of season?

“We thought people would get the joke.”

No joke: when you get woke, you go broke. The crowd at Sundance Film Festival might cheer this dreck, but few other Americans will.

Movies like this get made because the fill-maker extrapolates “everyone I know” to “everyone.”

    Tom Servo in reply to Albigensian. | August 8, 2019 at 6:54 pm

    This is *Exactly* the movie that Loni Riefenstahl could have made in the 1930’s, showing all of the Happy, Good, Germans hunting down and killing all of those nasty, wicked Jews who were lurking out in the woods.

      Milhouse in reply to Tom Servo. | August 8, 2019 at 8:34 pm

      No, it is exactly the opposite of the sort of movie she would have made. The nazis didn’t go around advertising what savages they were. They went to great lengths to hide it. They would never have shown themselves hunting “untermenschen”, even though they did precisely that.

      Also, hunting is associated with the nobility, whom the nazis hated.

2smartforlibs | August 8, 2019 at 5:26 pm

Interesting how this is always a theme when the left is out of power

Humphrey's Executor | August 8, 2019 at 5:30 pm

Im the trailer it looks like the “deplorables” fight back against arrogant rich elite types, and kick butt. I’ll watch that.

    Probably turns out that any of the “prey” that survive either weren’t really Deplorable to begin with or are redeemed by an epiphany of wokeness.

I don’t know what I think of this. Murder-porn for lefties, or a stark portrayal of elite liberals as psychopathic antagonists?

Every Universal moving coming out in the future should be noted as being made by “Universal, the ones who made the hunting movie about killing people for their political beliefs”

There is NO WAY any sane individual will EVER give up their weapons now …. regardless of any future law or SCOTUS decision. I know what “shall not be infringed” means. This is a liberal wet dream gone full orgasm …. and the liberals are determined to bring it to fruition.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to walls. | August 8, 2019 at 6:00 pm

    And we know exactly why the Democrats and Leftist want to seize guns – Tyrannical Dictatorship.

Hilary Swank’s character: “They aren’t human.”

That’s the overwhelming sentiment toward the Right displayed on Leftist Twitter accounts these days. The idea that the political Right (i.e. “Deplorables”) aren’t human seems to resonate with committed Leftists.

Note that in the wake of two mass shootings, Universal isn’t cancelling the movie; they’re just scaling back advertising for it. The release of the film will go forward as planned.

Also, calling it “murder porn” is too soft. Call it what it really is: ideological genocide porn.

[sarcasm] It makes you just want to give up your guns, doesn’t it? [/sarcasm]

Wait, are you sure this is a left-wing movie? Because from your description it sounds very right-wing to me. Portraying leftists as self-described “elites” who literally treat “deplorables” as animals?! That has to be a “deplorable” movie. It’s an exaggeration of how we see them; it’s not how they see themselves! They think of themselves as the good guys, and us as the bloodthirsty, racist gun nuts who “other” and “dehumanize” people and would gladly shoot them if we could get away with it. Surely if they made a movie like this it would have the elites be stereotypical fat-cat capitalists dropping right-wing buzzwords at the drop of a constitution, while our victims would be portrayed as non-white intellectual liberals.

    There are all sorts of wacky plot contrivances that could be used in the movie to make the Left look like the good guys (ex: the targets of the hunt are all white supremacists guilty of heinous crimes against The People and deserve what they get; a rich right winger is behind the hunt as a false flag operation to make left wingers look bad; it was all a dream and the main character wakes up at the end and finds the “real” hunt is being done by white supremacists, etc).

    One thing is for sure: if “The Hunt” in any way shape or form makes the Left look bad, the director, writers and producers will be finished in Hollywood.

      This director’s previous work was the “Purge” series, which all centered on right wing Christian people going wild and killing anyone who wasn’t exactly like them for – well for no reason, really, other than that’s obviously what all Right Wing Christian people must want to do.

      Everything he does is Blood Libel – literally.

        Milhouse in reply to Tom Servo. | August 8, 2019 at 8:32 pm

        All the more reason to be astonished at him making a movie showing the exact opposite, leftists acting like nazis and hunting down rightists.

          I have read this movie was based (very) loosely on the story “The Most Dangerous Game”, which I read in high school. Politics aside, modern Hollywood (last quarter century) has developed a near infallible talent for taking great stories/novels and then ruining them on the silver screen with crummy writing, lousy acting, or both.

          What made the original story so memorable was the deadly game of wits between Rainsford (the hunted) and Zaroff (the hunter). I am quite sure none of that will be in “The Hunt”.

      Everyone has fantasies.

Those theater audiences may end up being target rich environments. Were I a theater owner, I would not show such a film just to avoid the potential.

    The Packetman in reply to NotKennedy. | August 8, 2019 at 6:04 pm

    I was thinking the exact same thing last night after I watched the trailer. I wouldn’t be caught within a mile of opening night.

    Or the next night … or the next …

Don’t kid yourself: this is a propaganda film that is a de facto declaration of war upon us, just like the anti-Japanse films of WW2:

Glorification of violence, followed by tears when violence occurs. Cognitive dissonance.

There is a growing g percentage of democrats that think Trump supporters should be thrown in prison or killed. I believe the majority think that we should lose our jobs, businesses, spots at school, custody of our children and be driven from the public square.

I think the Leftists have won if we take this seriously.

Even most Democrats know that killing people is bad.

    Tom Servo in reply to franker. | August 8, 2019 at 6:55 pm

    People thought that most Germans in the 1930’s felt that killing people was bad.

      Milhouse in reply to Tom Servo. | August 8, 2019 at 8:36 pm

      Most Germans in the ’30s did think killing people was bad. If their fuehrer was doing it they didn’t want to know about it.

      Being one of the few people here who actually KNEW some Germans old enough to have been adults during the ’30’s, let me point out that some of the nicest people I knew over there were still defending Hitler in the 1960’s for bringing “order” to the country – but they acted as if the Holocaust never occurred. Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt.

        When working in Thailand, one of my jobs was to check on the Displaced Persons camps for Camobdians who’d fled to Thai territory to escape the fighting in their country. I got to know a number of UN and NGO people, who told me that Ta Mok was one of the seetest, gentle-mannered people you could ever hope to meet–and Ta Mok (real name Chhit Choeun) was Pol Pot’s trusted lieutenant in implementing the “final solution” for Cambodian “counter-revolutionaries”.

        Having read Margaret Attwood’s _Handmaid’s Tale_, with its blood libel about Evangelicals wanting to enslave women, and now seeing this business about the _Hunt_, I imagine the triply damned shade of Julius Streicher beaming down in Hell.

    Barry in reply to franker. | August 8, 2019 at 6:59 pm

    “Even most Democrats know that killing people is bad.”

    Todays democrats are 99.9% communists.

    Communists murdered 100+ million people last century.

    I disagree with your statement.

      franker in reply to Barry. | August 8, 2019 at 8:04 pm

      I have Dem friends, my deceased wife was a Dem and none of them were or are Communists or want to kill us.

      Were some of them terribly misguided and dumber than rocks?

      Of course!

      But to call them all “Communists” is just as dumb as calling us all “White Supremacists”


        Barry in reply to franker. | August 8, 2019 at 10:47 pm

        I have neighbors that are nice people, democrats. They vote exclusively for democrats. The democrats in power like Obama, the leaders in Detroit, Baltimore, L.A., San Francisco, NYC are all communists.

        If you vote for communists you are a communist.

        artichoke in reply to franker. | August 9, 2019 at 11:38 am

        Yes it was different before. But they are still responsible for what they are supporting now.

        It’s their responsibility to #walkaway . If they don’t, it’s on them.

        Barry in reply to franker. | August 9, 2019 at 1:13 pm

        Dear franker,

        This bothers me a bit, so –

        I said 99.9% were communists. By that I really meant the democrat party leadership, not the every day average voter. It didn’t used to be that way. Many democrats were fiercely defensive of democracy, of our republic. Over time they retired or were purged and we have a party that is now truly led by a communist cadre. Yes, there are a few exceptions.

        I have known and still know quite a few people that are registered democrats and faithfully vote that way. They are good people, worked hard, raised their family’s properly, everything you expect an American to do. I have someone close to me, younger, that is a die hard democrat, and serves his country in the military. He does not consider himself a communist.

        However, they support and are loyal to the democrats that are communists. Would they be sorry should the D party get their wish of full control? Sure. But it will be too late.

        So, I fight them. Only with words, and working to elect those that value freedom and liberty.

        Kepha H in reply to franker. | August 9, 2019 at 7:21 pm

        I’m from a heavily Democrat family myself. However:

        (1) Back in 1979, one who had known me my whole life asked me to give insight into Ayatollah Khomeini’s makeup. After all, I was also a student of theology. I had to explain that Old School Presbyterianism and Ithna’ashariyya Shi’ite Islam were a couple of worlds apart.

        (2) Another asks me how it is to be the only white family member in my own household (wife and daughter-in-law both from the Far East). The assumption was that since I had held my nose and voted for Trump, I had to be a white supremacist.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to franker. | August 8, 2019 at 11:33 pm

    “Even most Democrats know that killing people is bad.”

    It is just that they do not consider anyone who they disagree with, or who does not submit to them as people. So they are fair game to Democrats.

    You haven’t been to Seattle lately.

    The violence against people wearing anything looking like a MAGA hat is vastly under reported.

Past Tense
Jack Reacher novel
The deplorables won.

If any were needed, it’s hard to imagine any better advertising for using one’s 2nd Amendment rights.

Be a deplorable who can shoot back!

Actually I think you may be off on this one. From the description I’ve seen the “deplorables” turn the tables. Seems the trailer suggests that too. We’ll just have to see.

There was a movie a long time ago called “The Last Supper” ( with Cameron Diaz and Rob Perlman )about liberals who would have conservatives come by their house. They would invite them to dinner and poison them.

Spoiler Warning

In the end Perlman shows up as a Rush Limbaugh clone. He catches on and poisons all of them.

End of Spoiler

    I am going to hold off on my opinion of this. If the conservative end up being the heroes in this film, then I may see it….even if it turns out to be a “cult classic”.

      rokiloki in reply to Leslie Eastman. | August 9, 2019 at 10:14 am

      I agree.

      Nobody sees an ad for JAWS and then leaps to the conclusion the filmmakers are promoting that its okay for sharks to eat swimmers. Nobody sees ads for the Hunger Games and then cries that it encourages the rich elites to kill poor people.

      Horror movies have antagonists (monsters, killers) and protagonists (the heroes, often starting as victims). Judging from the trailer, the liberals are the antagonists and the ‘deplorables’ are the protagonists. Its a monster movie and the liberals are the monsters.

      Everyone just chill out until the movie is actually released.

    The trailer does seem to suggest the “deplorable” tracks down the elite and takes care of business.

    A trailer isn’t going to give up the ending. In fact, if anything, it’s designed to suck in people from both sides to maximize the box office.

This site locks up my computer a lot – particularly when I try to post. Have heard others mention that,too. Why is that Prof?

Ok, gross idea but similar to Mockingjay movie. People , I think kidnaped & then find cache of weapons. Choose to fight to save themselves. Yes, fantasy leftists killer porn but it does look like the heroine kicks their ass. Just wired & nutty, kind like the leftists now. Fav bit was the elegant lady, complete with pearl bracelet, using the shotgun! The whole luxury vacation ad set up. Peculiar people to have made this.

BerettaTomcat | August 8, 2019 at 10:33 pm

I watched the trailer and got the impression the heroine is the tough deplorable. If I were to predict the ending, all deplorables die, but the heroine emerges victorious. Just speculation. Such a plot might be used to justify the premise of hunting Trump supporters.

It looks like the same joke over and over, from the trailer. Screenwriter burnout.

The strong action-woman appeals to both men and women, to women as strong woman and to men as humor. The plot looks too stupid to bear, however.

Hm…The trailer looks to me like it’s the “elites” that are the bad guys and the “normal people” are the good guys. I’m not sure why the premise is so objectionable to deplorables.

A bunch of liberal elites attempt to realize their wet dream of massacring those hateful deplorables and have the tables turned on them. Sounds like a movie I could watch.
