Where the Elite Meet for a Neat-to-Eat DECEIT, SHEEPLE!

Maggie Gallagher:
Have you noticed how much of Hollywood is preoccupied with thoughts of God?

"Life of Pi" is the latest example of a movie with essentially religious themes.

Artists in a postmodern culture are thinking about the relationship between story and truth. Even the movie "Lincoln" is organized around the idea that false narratives can serve the greater good in politics. When the people are bad, the politician must lie or mislead to serve the good.

It's rather discomfiting to see so many liberal elites embrace this movie, isn't it?
That is about as blindingly stupid an opening as you can hope for, but Maggie has hit upon a chilling thought: just how many of these awful liberal elites are out there?

Let us ask Professor JanusNode:
The aqueous humour-drinking elite
The chai-sipping elite
The chicken-hugging elite
The childhood-loving elite
The desert-half-orc-hugging elite
The garbage-dumps-going elite
The happy-affairs-loving elite
The hardware-loving elite
The how-to-manuals-loving elite
The lymph-sipping elite
The marketing-loving elite
The mix-sipping elite
The monster-hugging elite
The parable-loving elite
The plasma-sipping elite
The plastic-surgery-loving elite
The political-ranting-loving elite
The post-general-insurrection-loving elite
The primal-elemental-hugging elite
The pseudo-landscape-loving elite
The pseudo-nog-sipping elite
The psycho-capuchin-monkey-hugging elite
The quasi-AM-radio-loving elite
The quasi-Italian-design-loving elite
The quasi-truth-loving elite
The quasi-views-of-a-naked-body-going elite
The religious-lies-loving elite
The religious-sermonizing-loving elite
The saliva-sipping elite
The science-going elite
The sermonizing-loving elite
The southern-hairy-nosed-wombat-hugging elite
The space/time-loving elite
The structuralism-loving elite
The super-little-penguin-hugging elite
The tea-sipping elite
The über-semen-drinking elite
The ultra-top-40-music-going elite
The urban-waste-loving elite
The water-drinking elite
If you have the heart to go on, you may also explore what follows this:
"Cloud Atlas" is one of an increasing number of films I would call "religious porn."

Think for a moment about the relationship between that little god Eros and standard porn.

This has never happened before!

If there was never a Good Samaritan why help people?

mikey said...

Why do they only ever speak of the liberal elite? What about the vast population of liberal commoners shuffling around in the dust, drinking their lattes on the way to a baggage handling job at the St. Louis airport?

Substance McGravitas said...

What, the moochers?

Dr.KennethNoisewater said...

What about those of us who eat our arugula with a side of Twinkie? Will no one think of us?

I am skeptical about the number of damp seats in the cinemas resulting from watching Cloud Atlas.
I realise that Ms Gallagher's understanding of the words "religious", "porn" and "increasing" probably has little connection to their common usage.
