A majority of Americans have seen or at least know of the 1984 movie classic Red Dawn. The film portrayed a Soviet invasion of the continental United States wherein a group of high school students identifying themselves with their high school mascot (the Wolverines) are forced through circumstances to form up into a guerilla force conducting operations behind enemy lines. The film was a big hit as the Soviet Union and its allies in Nicaragua was considered the greatest threat to the United States at that time.
In the fall of 2009 plans were put forth for a remake of Red Dawn, this time, rather than Soviets and Nicaraguans in Colorado, it was to be Chinese invading the US and set in Washington State. The new film was to be completed and released in November, 2010. The filming was completed however the release was stopped. And who stopped it? It was indeed the Chinese government. Evidently the properties held by the Chinese government in the United States and the money and power they represent caused MGM to rethink Red Dawn.
The film was originally shelved but has since been brought back and revamped. The editors apparently have removed all Chinese insignia including their flag from the film and replaced them with North Korean flags and insignia.
In essence the Chinese have censored an American movie and to an extent as to make it unbelievable. How many people think North Korea could accomplish a ground invasion in the continental United States? The idea is laughable. Now on the other hand how many people consider a Chinese ground invasion as a plausible possibility? In fact if you have ever been to Seattle you know the Chinese already have that city occupied.
I’m racking my brain, trying to find one area in our modern society wherein the power elite are not betraying us. I cannot.
As a side note it is now being rumored that North Korea is crying foul over Red Dawn. I guess we may be approaching the day when no oriental can be portrayed in books or films as nothing other than superior in every way to us Americans. I guess next we will be forced to burn all of our Viet Nam and Korean War books and movies.
I will be boycotting the remake of Red Dawn. I will not watch it at the theater, I will not rent it from Blockbuster, and when it finally makes it to television I will change the channel. I am an American and will not be subjected to Chinese censorship in my country.
Rick said it best; watch the sneaky Chinese, as they intend to have the United States as their own, complete with we the people as their slaves.
