Are The Aliens From The “V” Remake Being Compared To The Obama Administration?
Holy s***. There has been some geek anticipation for ABC’s remake of the 1980s TV series “V” and this trailer does a great job of hyping it even further. Unfortunately…it just doesn’t look that great, which is a bummer. Well, if “V” fails, maybe Elizabeth Mitchell can come back from the dead on “Lost”?
However…it doesn’t take a political scientist to recognize what could be seen as potential shots against the Obama Administration. This isn’t crazy conservative talk either. Here are some quotes and keep in mind, the aliens in “V” are bad guys that eat humans.
“We’re all so quick to jump on the bandwagon…but first, let’s at least examine it.”
“That’s the danger. Gratitude can morph into worship.”
“Just be sure not to ask anything that would paint us in a negative light.”
“They gained trust with the promise of friendship and, of course, all they are really doing is positioning themselves as the saviors of mankind.”
“They’re arming themselves with the most powerful weapon out there…devotion.”
