Summary: History shows with grim clarity the values of the extreme Left, in which human life means nothing. The Guardian newspaper gives a glowing review to the latest example — a snuf film disarmingly packaged as humor. See it while you can. It might prove embarrassing to its creators and get put down the memory hole.
“There will be blood“, The Guardian, 30 September 2010:
Watch exclusive of 10:10 campaign’s ‘No Pressure’ film. Here’s a highly explosive short film, written by Richard Curtis, from our friends at the 10:10 climate change campaign. It’s most definitely striking and if you haven’t watched it yet – taking into account the warning that it contains scenes some people may find disturbing – do so now, before I give too much away. … The film is released tomorrow.
Update: Nope, it wasn’t released. The merry folks at 10:10 have already taken it down (the original was here) and posted a poor excuse for an apology. This copy resides at YouTube.
The promo describes this big-budget propaganda film:
Whippersnapping climate campaign 10:10 teams up with legendary comic screenwriter Richard Curtis – you know, Blackadder, Four Weddings, Notting Hill, co-founded Comic Relief – and Age of Stupid director Franny Armstrong to proudly present their explosive new mini-movie “No Pressure”. The film stars X-Files’ Gillian Anderson, together with Spurs players past and present – including Peter Crouch, Ledley King and David Ginola – with music donated by Radiohead. Shot on 35mm by a 40-strong professional film crew led by director Dougal Wilson, “No Pressure” celebrates everybody who is actively tackling climate change — by blowing up those are aren’t.
This belief in curative value of spilling blood is a commonplace in history (especially in the last century), a bleak backdrop to this film. Many on the Left would go berserk at something similar if produced by the Tea Party or evangelicals. And rightly so. The “just kidding” defense doesn’t work when the writers so obviously wish their fantasy were true.
This genre of morality plays has deep roots in western culture. Such as the Medieval plays and pageants, with evil-doers thrown into the Hellmouth at the climax — their eternity of torture left to the audience’s imagination.
