On the plus side, it’s your chance to see Sean Penn get shot to death

Another day, another Oscar-bait flick about a funny, brave gay martyr.

And an uptight, white male gun-owning “Christian” villain.

(Trailer etc posted at my blog[1].)

How is it “progressive” exactly that liberal Hollywood always kills off the gay character at the end of the movie? [2]

(Or, for that matter, that black characters always get off’d[3] first [this writer says second[4]] in slasher pix? You’ve heard of the “final girl”[5]? Well, that trope’s, like, the “initial brother”…)

But remember: we conservatives are the “twisted, intolerant” ones…

(Kathy Shaidle blogs at FiveFeetOfFury.com[6]. In his introduction to her new book The Tyranny of Nice[7], Mark Steyn calls her “one of the virtuoso polemicists of our age.”)
