Thats the straight shot from J.R. Taylor, who runs rightwingtrash.com, a conservative entertainment blog, and believes that the mad mercenary played by Sylvester Stallone in the new Rambo film is actually a right- wing role model.
In the film, Rambo is sent to Burma to save a group of captured Christian missionaries, and Taylor says, Its a celebration of military intervention. Hes saving Christianity. Its overwhelmingly a right-wing film.
Taylor also cites the new horror flick Cloverfield, with its yuppie types blaming the government as an example of conservative politics sneaking into the cinema.
And Taylor sings a strong song about one typically hippie musician.
He says, Lenny Kravitz has a new song called Back in Vietnam. It might as well be playing during the end credits to Rambo. He doesnt know how well his leftist policies serve the right wing cause.
