People Are Totally Missing The Point Of The Scenario Found In The Coming A24 Movie, ‘Civil War’

By Shelt Garner

There is a lot of discourse online about how the producers of the coming A24 movie, “Civil War” apparently are completely clueless about modern American politics. But, to me, it’s clear they know damn well what they’re doing by coming up with such a weird scenario for a civil war.

Had they decided to do a hyper realistic Blue vs. Red scenario, it would have been a no-win situation. They would have had to have picked a “good” side. Or, really, even if they had been non-judgmental about who was “good” and who was “bad” in the civil war, both sides in real world would have gotten VERY ANGRY at how “objective” the producers were trying to be.

So, the producers of the movie punted and came up with a fictional scenario with no connection at all to the real world. The more I think about it, the more I realize there just was no way for the producers of “Civil War” to give people what they want — a battle royal between Reds and Blues in movie form.

As an aside, I think what we need is a Threads-type movie about a civil war in the United States. Any civil war / revolution in the United States will suck so bad that we’re all going to regret we let it happen, no matter what our politics may be.
