I thought you were all sciencey, and shit?


Pure Flix has distributed two films by Dinesh D’Souza, the right-wing commentator and provocateur who was pardoned by President Donald Trump in May after pleading guilty to campaign finance fraud.

The company is releasing D’Souza’s latest, “Death of a Nation,” through a subsidiary label called Quality Flix, which was set up to handle international distribution. It was also used to distribute D’Souza’s “Hillary's America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party” in 2016.


In the controversial “Death of a Nation,” which opened nationwide on Friday [August 3, 2018], D’Souza argues that Trump is analogous to Abraham Lincoln and Democrats are akin to Nazis.

Steve Fedyski, Pure Flix’s chief operating officer, said that the company doesn’t endorse D’Souza’s brand of pugilistic politics. But he acknowledged that D’Souza’s message hits home with a wide swath of its viewers.

“We have an audience that skews to support this type of film,” Fedyski said in a recent phone interview. “We felt we could be successful on launching the film because it would resonate with a lot of our audience.”

Fedyski said it was chiefly a “business decision” to align with the staunchly pro-Trump firebrand, and that it makes sense: In a recent survey, Trump’s approval rating among white evangelicals, a core part of Pure Flix’s audience, stood at 75 percent.
And here's where common sense and morality blur in an unadulturated xian power grab. I guess the threat of women achieving equality is forcing the fringes to become ever more shrill as they're dragged kicking and screaming into the post-religion, pro-science age of modern enlightenment.

The Rich Elect; The Poor Vote.

“Whenever someone starts quoting the bible, I know they’re full of shit. People only bring out that goddammed thing when they want to justify immoral behavior. It’s the ultimate irony,” the bartender said with a laugh.

Monday has never been my favorite day of the week, but getting murdered before I could finish my first cup of coffee was a new low, even for Monday.
