How Hollywood social engineers turned 2018's “The Predator” into a big budget flop

David MenziesMission Specialist

I had the misfortune of watching the recently released stinker from The Predator franchise on DVD. Based on word-of-mouth and scathing reviews, I knew enough to stay away from it in the theatres but I was a fan of the 1987 original, so it was tough to shun.


Unfortunately, the lousy ratings were warranted and even the low 28 per cent viewer rating on Rotten Tomatoes was generous!

In addition to boasting that which is known as “a plot,” the original 1987 Predator also had an uber-macho cast that today would be seen as “toxic masculinity” — so the new version offered a heapin’ helpin’ of “girl power”, by way of a female scientist who inexplicably morphs into a super-soldier halfway through the flick.

And then there’s the “big reveal” scene when we all get to learn why these irregular space aliens are coming to Earth on an increasingly frequent basis.

Spoiler alert! The explanation is …. climate change.

The good news is, very few of us are buying into the junk that the social engineers in Hollywood are trying to ram down our throats, but still they persist.

Why can’t the Hollywood weirdos go back to the good ol’ days of making sci-fi and action adventure flicks that drop the virtue-signalling in favour of plot-driven nail-biters?

If I want to watch progressive propaganda films that take their narrative cues from the likes of Al Gore and David Suzuki, I’d rent them to begin with!

Nicholas Conklin i bet atheists and left wingers commit more offenses.

Nicholas Conklin sorry but reality is reality, just because you think it happens more does not make it so. In fact show me proof of these countless incidents. And go support your progressive buddies who think kids are for sex. Never said i am defending actual violators, just showing you that you that it does not happen as often as you think or as often as bigots like you believe it does. Now go spread your hate, funny how you accuse the Rebel of doing just that then make comments like you did. GO LOOK IN THE MIRROR TO SEE HATE!! And sorry but you do not get to decide who can be hated or not.

Al Peterson,

Yep – you screwed up. I gave you every opportunity even to the point of telling you where to find the answer, but you are willfully ignorant and believe whatever The Rebel tells you.

Nicholas COnklin there have not been countless occurrences , try some reality and look beyond media and hollywood sensationalism. Techers commit far more offenses.Priests offend no more than the the societal average. And it is the progressive left that is grooming kids and pushing for legalization of fucking kids, so spare me your imagined hogwash.

Regarding: “They cannot even understand reality , it must suck not being able to understand the simplest things even when explained to them like you would explain them to a very young child”

A few more interesting links that might further explain in part:

https://nypost.com/2016/06/09/science-says-liberal-beliefs-are-linked-to-pyschotic-traits/
“A political-science journal that published an oft-cited study claiming conservatives were more likely to show traits associated with “psychoticism” now says it got it wrong. Very wrong. The American Journal of Political Science published a correction this year saying that the 2012 paper has “an error” — and that liberal political beliefs, not conservative ones, are actually linked to psychoticism.”

Sound like anyone you know?

“2) Liberals sources of information are ever present. Conservatives are regularly exposed to the liberal viewpoint whether they want to be or not. That’s not necessarily so for liberals. Imagine the average day for liberals. They get up and read their local newspaper. It has a liberal viewpoint. They take their kids to school, where the teachers are liberal. Then they go to work, listen to NPR which has a liberal viewpoint on the way home, and then turn on the nightly news which also skews leftward. From there, they turn on TV and watch shows created by liberals that lean to the left, if they have any political viewpoint at all. Unless liberals actively seek out conservative viewpoints, which is unlikely, the only conservative arguments they’re probably going to hear are going to be through the heavily distorted, poorly translated, deeply skeptical lens of other liberals.”

4 Then He said to me, “Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them. 5 For you are not being sent to a people of unintelligible speech or difficult language, but to the house of Israel, 6 nor to many peoples of unintelligible speech or difficult language, whose words you cannot understand. But I have sent you to them who should listen to you; 7 yet the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, since they are not willing to listen to Me. Surely the whole house of Israel is stubborn and obstinate. 8 Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. 9 Like emery harder than flint I have made your forehead.

Do not be afraid of them or be dismayed before them, though they are a rebellious house.” 10 Moreover, He said to me, “Son of man, take into your heart all My words which I will speak to you and listen closely. 11 Go to the exiles, to the sons of your people, and speak to them and tell them, whether they listen or not, ‘Thus says the Lord God.’”…

…16 At the end of seven days the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 17 “Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman to the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from My mouth, warn them from Me. 18 When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. 19 Yet if you have warned the wicked and he does not turn from his wickedness or from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered yourself.

Indeed, why bother wasting effort on the leftard troll that lives on this site, he will not deviate from his scripted talking points and attacks. You flatter that troll though Muta by stating that he has a mind, based on his numerous past postings it is clear that he does not nor ever will develop a brain, he is simply a lost cause and good for the odd laugh.

Nicholas Conklin there have not been many worth mentioning in the last few years. Most of it has been worthless garbage. Marvel Studios is the one exception.

Agatha, you have been promising this without result for 2 months now, It’s always the next day or next weekend but it never arrives. I don’t give 2 seconds of my time trying to unwrap your big mystery. You may think the world is on the edge of their seats panting in anticipation of what your vague references could possibly be. But they aren’t and I’m not. Stop the delusions of grandeur. I plead with you to stop humiliating yourself in public like this. Think of the children.

In the future when “climate change” or more properly called “the global warming scam” is revealed as the hoax it is, will the eco-twits admit they were fools for being duped? … … Yea, I doubt it too.
