The Dictator Movie Hits Reality Nerve, Of Past and Present. In Political History. Our Political Reality
I knew that he would use "The Dictator" to attack our sensitivities to messed up political games in Washington DC, and the bad elections we faced in this nation last 3 cycles.
So when the movie began, Osama Bin Laden like characters are seen throughout making comments, or asking questions. In such a way it was a history lesson all the way through.
But is not politically correct some of the Comedy in film as that's what comedians do make us laugh, or walk a fine line attacking or uncomfortable subjects, like politics, religion, and bad choices of American people.
What they voted for, didn't protest against like Occupy Movement trying to hold banking industry accountable while a former or current presidential administration.
Passes bailout plans or continues to allow the bailing out of banking industry, instead of helping the working Americans struggling at the hands of the elite rich class in United States.
All this is mentioned throughout the movie, "The Dictator" when the movie gets to the final few minutes, as Borat's character talks about how good dictatorship's can be if we remove things from citizens lives.
These things include let people believe in an election they choose next world leader or president, only to buy election and take away all free education or medical care.
So people become weak or just die.
And as the movie winds down back to Dictator's palace we see the Osama Bin Laden character again running from the media spotlight; and heading back to the bathroom for treating his dialysis bag and needing rest.
So the bottom line on this great movie is , it touches the nerves of each and every American by simply reminding us all of what has happened in our American History.
What we allowed to occur, what a dictatorship is.
And how we could have prevented under W Bush Administration or new Presidencies from using the illusion of democracy to cover up their own personal dictatorship ways.
The realities we ignore daily are all the things as Americans we complain about for many of us, inside the movie theatre viewing this film, or having to listen to the other side of a story.
To get complete story. On things in our country history, politics. and government on all levels.
