It's not that I am bragging, there is absolutely no point in that at all; it's that I want you to have a solidified reason to trust me when I make some claims that might seem a bit far out to you, or really far-out, as the case may be. "There is only one path to peace: your extinction," Ultron tells the Avengers in the extended trailer for The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, released yesterday, so the question is, who are the Avengers? White, heterosexual men, (Thor, Tony Stark, Hawkeye, Captain America, the Hulk; they are the leaders, Don Cheadle's Iron Patriot and Nick Fury are secondary characters, while Black Widow is a leading character, but hasn't had her own film, not yet) just as I have been telling you, the Left has to take down the power-holders in American society to continue waging their revolution, and that is the white, heterosexual male.
The first question to ask is, who is it, dear reader, who promises peace, but contends that violent war has to happen first? Who is it that appeals to the "younger generation," like Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch? Who is it that wants to make white men extinct? Socialism. Socialism always starts with a violent revolution and the killing off of the wealthiest members of society, the strongest members and those who will fight the hardest to protect it. Ultron, then, with this newest footage in the trailer, can be established as an Obama figure because, what is he bragging about right now? There are no strings on him keeping him from declaring amnesty, either in the form of the Constitution or Congress; he can do whatever he wants, he claims. So, what does the rest of the trailer show us?
The first image of this massive destruction she sees at the start of the trailer summons several films to mind: X-Men: DOFP, Star Trek Into Darkness, Mockingjay (and I am sure I am forgetting another one). Again, Insurgent wants us to link these films all together in our mind. Undoubtedly, this is a dream sequence--Divergent was full of them--all dreams are fulfillments of a wish, so what is Tris wishing for? To be able to save her mom. As you know, mothers symbolize the "motherland" because our country gave "birth" to us and a large part of our identity. Tris wanting to save "the motherland" is like so many Americans who went to the polls November 11 and voted the Democrats out of power to make the Congress look the way it did at the end of World War II, the first time we defeated the socialists.
Why start out with the invention of the camera? It's because of a camera that we are watching the trailer (the information was recorded by a camera, like the camera Beetee looks in to send his message to Peeta). "Virtually unchanged for 30 years until one man," what does this sentence mean? Progress. Progress can come to the entire world through one individual. Now, it's tempting to look at this car commercial and say it's an anti-capitalist trailer because they are interrupting it, however, this car commercial is utterly different from the other Capitol Broadcasts we have seen; this commercial could be on your TV right now (and the comments below this trailer on YouTube verify that because everyone commented on how they tried "skipping it" and couldn't and then Beetee came on; not to mention it ends with MazdaUSA.com and, in The Hunger Games, the USA no longer exists, it's just Panem). Here we have, then, that the progress in the car industry is tied to the "resistance" in District 13 and to one of their own (Peeta) who has been taken and hijacked by the Capitol. The very creativity of this ad demonstrates how narrow and non-progressive (and I mean "Progressive" in its political sense as well [yes, Progressive Insurance company is owned by a progressive liberal, why do you think they named it that?]) the Capitol is. Which leads us to a closing comment,...
