Former wrestler and star of the 1988 cult classic They Live, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper is drawing attention for his recent outspoken pro-liberty stances.

Written and directed by John Carpenter, the story surrounds an uneasy drifter who does not yet see the extraterrestrial controlling powers in place.

Many people can relate to a memorable 5+ minute fight scene with a friend who Roddy’s character Nada tries to wake up to the unseen enemy. The friend finally sees through sunglasses that unveil controller alien creatures and their subliminal messages to “Obey.”

Later, Nada is ready to take them down and walks into a bank with a shotgun when he utters the famous line that Piper himself ad libbed: “I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubble gum.”

A couple days ago, he admitted on Twitter that They Live is a documentary, (not science fiction)…

Nada, the mysterious main character from They Live, is “the lost American” according to Piper, whose favorite part is when he says “I believe in America,” a belief that Piper shares.

The 25th anniversary of They Live is reviving a great interest in the film’s message further fueled by growing distrust of the government and media.

Earlier this month he spoke in depth about the meaning of the film, higher consciousness solutions, war, control and other big issues to radio show host Alex Jones. Actor Sean Stone joins Piper in agreement of the topics:

Walking Dead star Norman Reedus, a favorite among the survivor cast, has read a famous speech for contemporary Americans to remember history by. In the Walking Dead series he must continue in rugged fashion to stay alive and attempt to harmonize with a small human community in a zombie post-apocalypse.

Here he introduces and reads Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech in a special edition of PODIUM’s “Historic Speeches, Contemporary Voices” series:
