Triggered by another testy scrap between to people I deeply respect, here’s my take on the biggest thing since . . . well, ever! One commentator calls it an “astonishing success story” and another, a “box office coup”. Sound of Freedom is a film released on 4 July 2023 that has busted all movie/box office records to date. All! It seems that conservatism is supporting their own. The Critical Drinker calls it, “Really F***ing Good” which is praise indeed. Funny that the MSM (now renamed the “Legacy Media”) haven’t shouted this from the rooftops eh? Methinks that child porn and trafficking gets a little too close to the bone. Enjoy.
In a previous scrap between Michael Hoffman and Mike King over Hitler’s character I sided more with Michael than Mike. IMHO Mike has a rather one-sided black and white position – that Hitler was the bees’ knees, although I gave Mike the time of day because Hitler has always been misquoted and badly and sloppily maligned by those with a vested interest to do so. This round however, I give more to Mike King. IMHO Michael Hoffman is unnecessarily provocative and uses false logic to make his point.
In the QAnon-type film Sound of Freedom, actor Jim Caviezel plays the head of a purported anti-sex trafficking organization called Operation Underground Railroad. Caviezel stars as special agent Tim Ballard, a real life Homeland Security agent who is said to have helped prosecute child-trafficking rings. Ballard is supposedly on record alleging that Wayfair, the online furniture company, was a front for selling children. In interviews Mr. Caviezel claims that members of a child molestation cabal operate on infants and young children to extract adrenochrome from their bodies. In a talk show chat with Steve Bannon, Caviezel stated his belief that the adrenochrome trade is a billion dollar industry. Bannon prodded Caviezel to “back it up, give me some facts, so people don’t think we’re off in conspiracy theory land.” Caviezel allegedly responded by bringing up news about Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Sound of Freedom was a cinematic opportunity. The movie could have actually named the massive child sex trafficking rings and their participants yet it fails to do so. Simply sowing suspicion is a psychological dead end.
If we take these words alone, I’m with Michael here 100%. Unfortunately in context they are not fair, because Hoffman expects something different. The movie was written and produced years ago and that it took so long to see the light of day should trigger the question, “Why?” not brickbats.
Psychological warfare entails demoralizing activists so they will quit their queries and detective work and drop out. We have seen this occur time and again over the years. Why is Sound of Freedom misdirecting its viewers and squandering an opportunity? Any good cop initiates an investigation at the top. This movie neglects that prime mission; that’s either incompetence or something more troubling.
Here we have the failed logic of an activist on show. It’s called a Straw-man Argument. Hoffman implies something that is NOT true – stating for them what their ‘prime mission’ is. No Michael. This may be your prime mission but it was not theirs. They simply wrote, and produced a movie, and as The Critical Drinker out it, a “really f**king good” one too!
QAnon’s speculation and wild rumors have many questionable parallels with the government’s “cognitive infiltration” project fomented by Cass Sunstein. The project aims to infiltrate and misdirect conspiracy sleuths. The Sound of Freedom movie neglects to refer to four of the largest child sex trafficking rings in modern history. 1. There’s no mention of Jimmy Savile’s network in England, which was abetted by Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher (a hero of US conservatives), as well as high officials in the British government, and Prince (now King) Charles: https://morningstaronline.co.uk/article/right-royal-cover-continues 2. There’s nothing about Jeffrey Epstein’s ring which included England’s Prince Andrew and dozens of the world’s most powerful men. https://foxnews.com/opinion/tucker-carlson-look-strange-circumstances-jeffrey-epsteins-death 3. The movie fails to report on the demonic child predation network in America of which mass murderer John Wayne Gacy was involved, as well as: 4. The ring embedded in the Vatican (cf. Jason Berry and Gerald Renner, Vows of Silence). All of these diabolic child-victimizing operations can be traced to the highest levels of power in the West. Sound of Freedom distracts from these facts by omitting them.
I think that this may be true, but it misses the points I made above. The movie was made more than 5 years ago. Apparently it does a great job at alerting people to the truth. I note that they say themselves that awareness of the subject was their goal. To that end they succeeded.
Good on you Michael Hoffman for going further – really – but it’s the biggest thing ever. Good on them, I say. Dig deeper if you will but it’s NOT a conspiracy to stop short of sharing the full truth when selling a message, or a movie.
People in the scriptures had to cover their eyes when the presence of Truth came in its fullness, and some even died as a result. I for one am really looking forward to seeing it when it is released Downunder.
UPDATE 30 July 2023
It appears that there are concerns from some people I respect . . . for example, Amazing Polly’s take:
Kerry Cassidy’s take:
Brendon Lee McConnell’s take:
“The Sound Of Freedom” & The Clinton Foundation
Some very interesting things coming out of the woodwork about Crazy Jim Caveizel and Coke Rat Mel Gibson and their associate fraudsters and Clinton Foundation funders.
