Universal has canceled the release of the film The Hunt, a film reportedly showing liberal elites hunting and killing ‘deplorables’ for sport. The decision comes after the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, and President Donald Trump calling ‘liberal Hollywood’ racist and full of violence.
Some quarters are lamenting this as not being able to take a joke, or Universal banning violence in movies, thus being silly, but his kind of thing is what you would usually call incitement.
….to inflame and cause chaos. They create their own violence, and then try to blame others. They are the true Racists, and are very bad for our Country!

The film was also even originally titled Red State vs Blue State, clearly outlining itself as a political movie.
“While Universal Pictures had already paused the marketing campaign for The Hunt, after thoughtful consideration, the studio has decided to cancel our plans to release the film,” the studio said in a statement. “We stand by our filmmakers and will continue to distribute films in partnership with bold and visionary creators, like those associated with this satirical social thriller, but we understand that now is not the right time to release this film.”
Anyway, John Woo is the only ‘Hunt’ director you need…
