Escape from New York - Land of the Free (Myth20c - Ep194)

Published on 12 Nov 2020 / In Television / Movies

In the not too distant future, New York has been walled off, isolating the once great city and turning it into an open air prison camp. The United States, still a military and technological force, is struggling however economically and socially, not to mention politically as its superpower status is challenged by China and Russia. Released in 1981, the plot to John Carpenter’s ‘Escape from New York’ could very well be set today in any of America’s newly burned out cities after months of BLM and Antifa rioting, who sing similar themes as the hijackers in the movie who kidnap the President. With the 2020 Election being still disputed, the country itself appears in need a Snake character to either rescue itself from a hijacking of a different sort, or to wake it up to the cold reality that things really are that bad, defying all attempts at logic or reason.

Escape From NY and LA were the first things that came to my mind when i first saw footage from the riots and the CHAZ earlier this year. Absolutely terrifying shit.

I would hope that Jew York City is walled off and every Jew on this earth is placed inside. They would begin eating each other until there were no more Jews and everybody else would be celebrating.
