Conservative film director James Cameron once again tweaks the noses of the Hollywood Left by taking dead aim at the Obama Administration in his new movie, AVATAR.
Throughout the years, Cameron has received as much opprobrium from critics for the blatant, in-your-face, right-wing ideology that animates most of his movies as he has acclaim as one of Hollywood’s best action directors and storytellers.
Cameron’s political streak first surfaced in the smash hit, “Terminator”, a movie which pitted the ultimate abortionist from the future against a young mother desperately trying to protect the life of her unborn child. In the sequel and even bigger blockbuster, “Terminator 2”, the ultimate abortionist learns to respect human life as he joins forces with the mother to protect her now teenage son from the forces of faceless, robotic collectivization.
And so on from “Aliens” a decidedly un-PC and controversial fever dream about the clash between Native Americans and the “New World” colonists from Europe to “True Lies”, an expose of the threat of Islamic nuclear terrorism through “Titanic”, a sly parody of the Clinton administration in which a young man’s dreams of a better life in America and his pursuit of true love are destroyed by criminality, incompetence, and mismanagement at the highest levels.
Now, James Cameron and Fox have bet 500 million dollars that the film-going public will rally round a state of the art, 3D GCI enhanced fable concerning the Democrats’ and President Obama’s attempts to destroy the American dream.
Be warned. Beyond this point there be *SPOILERS*.
Plot is almost incidental to the brilliant set pieces in AVATAR. And since, the deceptively simple plot has been discussed extensively elsewhere, we will concern ourselves with the Cameron’s true political agenda in crafting the movie.
The Humans in AVATAR come from an over-burdened, over-exploited Earth, which is clearly a stand-in for over-taxed, over-regulated, Democrat controlled, failing states such California and Michigan. The Democrats(as per Cameron’s clear intentions, we shall call the Humans henceforth) have ruined once prosperous states with their destructive governing philosophy and now ravenous for money and power have come to the planet Pandora.
In a marvelous example of the sly underhanded wit that Cameron employs throughout AVATAR, the resource that the Democrats greedily hunger for is called “unobtainium”. A clear shot across the bow warning us that Democrat policies and governance not only make freedom and liberty “unobtainable” but also that freedom can never be obtained through reliance on centrally controlled government.
The Democrat mission is led by a sort of super SEIU or ACORN-on-steroids. Clearly, Earth is also standing in for failing one-party thugocracies like the state of Illinois. Thus, the mercenary superSEIUACORNians could easily represent the still thankfully unrealized “armed just as well as the military” Obamacorps.
The planet, Pandora, itself is a wonderfully realized visual metaphor for the working of the free market and capitalism. It is the parable of the pencil come to life.
You know, how even something as simple a pencil unites us all and provides for the general welfare. Because a pencil uses graphite, wood, paint, metal, and rubber, there must be jobs for the lumberjack, the mill workers, paint-makers, the miners and smelters, the milkers of rubber plants, etc, etc. And so it is throughout the free market, where we best serve ourselves by serving others.
The Na’vi, the inhabitants of the planet, are the embodiment of civilizing effect and freedom of capitalist society. They are free to pursue their own interests without interference as long as they play by the rules of the planet, in other words, the minimal laws of their liberated society.
Those who master the rules may leap from cliffs and ride the dragons as do our captains of industry and owners of small business each and every day.
It is also a not so subtle swipe at those who master the useless such as feminist studies, global warming science, and community “organizing”. They do not ride the dragon. Like most Democrats and the President himself, they stay plodding, earthbound, resentful of those who live in harmony with their world. Thus, they wish to either control or destroy that world so that they may obtain the “unobtainium”.
To that end, the Democrats create an AVATAR. The AVATAR looks like a Na’vi. It sounds like a Na’vi. But inside, in it’s mind it is no Na’vi, for it possesses the brain of a Democrat. The AVATAR is intended to insert itself into Na’vi society. Then, by hook or crook, allow the Democrats to take the “unobtainium”.
If that sounds like like a certain current President, it’s no accident.
Cameron is nothing if not hard hitting for he makes the character “Sully”, who controls the AVATAR crippled. He is clearly leery of the little boy who was abandoned by both his father and mother, who was left alone in a foreign
country, Indonesia, for six years from ages 6-12. Just how emotionally crippled and scarred is the man who is now President of the United States of America. What motivated him to become an American AVATAR, to run as the type of President he never intended to be?
As Sarah Palin said so presciently of Obama in her acceptance speech at the RNC convention, ” the American presidency is not supposed to be a journey of personal discovery.”
The Democrats soon discover that the greatest source for “unobtainium” lies beneath the protecting limbs of the Na’vi’s Tree of Souls.
The Tree of Souls is a marvelous conceit on the part of Mr Cameron. The Tree is the Na’vis greatest legacy. Through it and within it, live the spirits of the Na’vi’s ancestors. It is their link with the past. It is an invaluable accumulation of the wisdom of their forefathers and foremothers.
It is also the Democrat’s greatest obstacle to the “unobtainium”.
We, too, have a Tree of Souls in America.
Our Tree of Souls is the Constitution of the United States of America.
Through our Constitution, we hear the wisdom of our ancestors. In upholding the Constitution, we honor the souls of our dead, the men and women who fought and died so that we may live in freedom.
Bravo, Mr Cameron! Just…bravo!
And it is no mistake that the destruction of the Tree of Souls by the Democrats is filmed to remind us of the destruction of the Twin Towers on 911.
Then Islamic terrorists sought to destroy what they thought was the center of American life, now the Democrats, the Harry Reids, the Nancy Pelosis, seek to destroy the true center of American life, our Tree of Souls, the Constitution, so that they may have the “unobtainium” of nationalized healthcare, the “unobtainium” of cap and trade.
And what of the AVATAR?
In the movie, the AVATAR realizes his love for the Na’vi and their way of life and turns against the Democrats who will destroy Pandora.
In reality, we aren’t so lucky.
So what’s the solution?
Mr Cameron would tell us, as he does in AVATAR, that the only answer is violent resistance, that we must turn against and murder our oppressors and forcibly expel them.
Wow, down boy! Someone get that mad dog a muzzle!
That would mean civil war.
And here, I must part company with the blood-thirsty though talented right-wing ideologue Mr James Cameron.
I do agree that we may no longer have the option of simply voting every few years. Our freedom and the life of our nation our under daily attack by unscrupulous men and women.
We may need to strike as a nation, as a people to show them where the power lies. We may need a doctor’s strike to show them that peoples’ lives and professions our not bureaucratic toys. We may need massive peaceful protests that shut down Washington DC itself.
Hell, a little tar and feathers may go along way.
But, civil war?
Sorry, Mr Cameron.
Though you’ve constructed a beautiful atrocity, it’s still no sale!
