So there I was, enjoying my early retirement i.e. taking a mid-afternoon nap on the couch, when I decided to check my email. Someone had sent me a clip of the movie Patriot’s Day. The bombing scene, no less…
Patriot’s Day is a movie I will never watch, for obvious reasons. It’s not that I’m squeamish, mind you; the reason for my avoidance is because the very existence of this movie makes me so mad!
Lights! Camera! Action!
Sights! Sounds! Suffering! Give me suffering!
Give me a break.
Welcome to the Boston Marathon bombing – Hollywood style. Cue the music for Entertainment Tonight…
As I watched the clip, I saw it was worse than I thought. Way worse. Sights, sounds, smoke, screams, suffering…they enhanced it all, brother. And when you consider the fact that the real footage videos have been pulled from You Tube, the existence of Patriot’s Day is even more immoral for if this movie is the only footage you have ever seen of the Boston Marathon bombing, you will be convinced, as the government wants you to be, that a real bombing with real injuries, real carnage, real death took place on April 15, 2013.
And that Dzhokhar did it…
Remember the video-that-doesn’t-exist-but-everybody-saw-it of Dzhokhar setting down a backpack then running away right before said backpack exploded? Patriots Day is just as fake as that video only Patriots Day, sad to say, really does exist and people watch it while eating their popcorn. Sickening.
It was shameful, and in this layman’s opinion, criminal, that a “documentary” was allowed to be made and aired before the trial. Yes – before the trial! Before the facts of the events in question had been proven in a court of law! There’s a crime in there somewhere, I just know it!
National Geographic should stick to giraffes and elephants. I think the government approached National Geographic. Can’t prove it but I think it. Just the name National Geographic lends credibility. And let’s face it, the words “credibility” and “government” should never be used in the same sentence these days.
So again, there I was, thinking I was done blogging about this case until that video clip arrived in my in-box. When it did, that still, small voice said “Ok. Break time’s over. Get back to work.”
Many have said, and I support this belief, that Boston was a beta test of martial law and a whole bunch of the government’s big, shiny new toys. Today, I would say it was also a test of how well and how far reality can be manipulated by technology and the media and how long a lie must be told until everyone, including those of us who are awake, believes it.
So when will I stop blogging about the Boston Marathon bombing? When Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is exonerated for a crime he did not commit, a crime that did not even happen, a crime that was staged by entities within our own government, entities who chose, yes chose, who was allowed to defend him at trial!
And we all know how that turned out…
And who am I? Maybe you should call me Roy. I would be honored if, one day, Dzhokhar would call me friend.
Whether you are a die hard fan (sorry, couldn’t resist the pun) or foe of this blog, one thing’s for sure: I’m back. Stay tuned.
