TRAILER: Morgan Spurlock's Horror-Documentary "Rats" & Modern Politics

Even though the film is a "horror-documentary" supposedly designed to make us hate and despise rats, a rat's life is ultimately what the Left has in store for everyone. Think about what was done to the Jews and prisoners in concentration camps throughout Europe during World War II: they were treated like rats, they were exterminated, just like the lead interviewer of the film was an exterminator for forty years; anyone standing in the way of what they want, will be exterminated. 
The worst horror films are always the ones that you believe could actually happen. Prolific director Morgan Spurlock has made a documentary about, what may be, mankind's greatest enemy: the rat. Did you know, a rat can leap up to four feet? It can tread water for three days and survive a five-story fall,.... so, how do we kill them? This documentary looks at rat infestation throughout the major cities of the world:
Those terrier dog packs you see hunting the rats? Those dog packs will hunt and kill a hundred rats a day,... Why do we have a documentary that looks more like a horror film, or, should we say, why do we have a horror film pretending to be a documentary? Spurlock has stated that a documentary that was like a horror film was his intent, but there is a not-so-hidden agenda with the director/human experiment of Supersize Me and that is going to be one of a liberal agenda: rats have been with us for millennia: ever hear of the bubonic plague?  They have always been around, in fields, cities, villages, etc., and they will continue to be so; Spurlock probably wants to make the case that, if we didn't have such big cities, if we didn't have so much waste, we wouldn't have such a rat problem,... would we?
While Ed Sheehan, who we see in the trailer, actually has been an exterminator in Brooklyn for forty years, he has an important fact wrong: there are not more rats living in NYC than people. While it has been a popular urban legend that there is a rat for every person in the Big Apple, scientists have pinpointed the rat population to be 25% that of the human population; so? Through the promulgation of the legend rather than fact, we find an element of the horror genre: out of control. The rats can't possibly be defeated, they reproduce too quickly, they carry disease, they evolve so quickly, and we mediocre humans that we are, we are losers and we should just surrender to them because that is what Obama would do, after his last round on the golf course at Martha's Vineyard. We will launch a hashtag campaign, and signal every human to surrender to the greater force of the rats, just as we are surrendering to ISIS and their superiority. This film, is propaganda, it's mind-control and it will be filled with mind-tricks and liberal positions, like there is no free will and humans are nature's greatest enemies.
Of course we would.
Didn't you see the terrier packs digging the rat up out of the ground? But that isn't the point Spurlock wants to make. As a capitalist, I view the situation as we elect public officials to handle issues like rat control, just as we see in the video; if the officials haven't done that job for which they have been elected, we need to purge them out of office and elect or hire someone who can and will. That's not the "horror" aspect of the documentary Spurlock wants us to face, either: with horror, there has to be a sense that it's spiraling out of control, and that we are helpless to do anything about it,... like we are helpless to stop eating McDonalds' and getting fat,... we are helpless. We have no free will. Any consequences in life that we face, like a rat population, is a sign that someone, somewhere, needs to be sued,... because someone other than ourselves is responsible and we are going to make them pay. As my film professor always said, there is always a reason a film is made now: it could not have been made five years earlier, and it would not do to release it five years later. The political environment of the last eight years has made a film like this possible, and a director like Spurlock successful.

P.S.: I just found out Google is disabling the slideshow gadget feature I have had on this blog since I started it; no more artwork; so sorry, that's how they are :(
There is no technology or waste anywhere in this area, but because the film will have hammered into our minds (by this point in the narrative) that rats are everywhere and we can't escape them, even this remote area will not appear to be safe, even though rats are a part of nature and serve a part in nature as do all animals, just like Winston Smith in 1984, we will be begging someone to free us from the rats and, Spurlock hopes, we will be willing to trade our freedoms and modern ways of life to be "rat-free." BUT, we are the ones who will become rats under liberal policies; in the film, we go to the capitol of the communist country Vietnam, and watch people catch rats then sell them for food. You are what you eat,...
