The U.S., military purportedly sent out a letter warning Department of Defense personnel of potential attacks from “incels” during the premiere of Warner Bros., Joker film.
The letter that was shared by the former Gawker subsidiary can be read below…
“Posts on social media have made reference to involuntary celibate (“incel”) extremists replicating the 2012 theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, at screenings of the Joker movie at nationwide theaters. This presents a potential risk to DOD personnel and family members, though there are no known specific credible threats to the opening of the Joker on 4 October.
“Incels are individuals who express frustration from perceived disadvantages to starting intimate relationships. Incel extremists idolize violent individuals like the Aurora movie theater shooter. They also idolize the Joker character, the violent clown from the Batman series, admiring his depiction as a man who must pretend to be happy, but eventually fights back against his bullies.
“When entering theaters, identify two escape routes, remain aware of your surroundings, and remember the phrase “run, hide, fight.” Run if you can. If you’re stuck, hide (also referred to as “sheltering in place”), and stay quiet. If a shooter finds you, fight with whatever you can.”
Even though this seems like a joke, it’s apparently real.
This all comes amidst Left-wing media activists using their platform to screech and howl about how Joker will cause a mass shooting or mobilize violence within straight, white males.
The bombardment of manufactured outrage led to Warner Bros. Entertainment issuing a statement regarding the film, which reads…
“Gun violence in our society is a critical issue, and we extend our deepest sympathy to all victims and families impacted by these tragedies. Our company has a long history of donating to victims of violence, including Aurora, and in recent weeks, our parent company joined other business leaders to call on policymakers to enact bi-partisan legislation to address this epidemic. At the same time, Warner Bros. believes that one of the functions of storytelling is to provoke difficult conversations around complex issues. Make no mistake: neither the fictional character Joker, nor the film, is an endorsement of real-world violence of any kind. It is not the intention of the film, the filmmakers or the studio to hold this character up as a hero. ”
Yes, the media has created such a caustic cultural environment when it comes to entertainment and art – and spawned from their incessant fake news – that movie production companies have to issue statements to remind people that fictional movies aren’t real life.
This is yet another said indictment of just how far off the handle our society has flown, and just how steeped we are in the madness of Clown World.
