AMC Theaters Issues Orwellian Message to Moviegoers

By Joshua Krause

It’s amazing how fast certain ideas can spread. What starts out as a repulsive idea promoted by the authorities, can quickly spread into the general consciousness of the public, to the point where the authorities no longer have to spread the message themselves. It starts to spread like a meme, and before you know it, the certain people and institutions are sending the message out at their own volition. The sheeple begin to police themselves.

That seems to be the case with the “see something say something” campaign, which started out just a few years ago as a bizarre Orwellian message, but now companies like AMC Theaters are rolling out their own tailor-made version of that message in the wake of several theater shootings that have happened in recent years. A Florida news outlet recently did a report on this message, which has been playing before movies in several Florida theaters. You gotta love the sheepish responses of some of the people they interviewed.

Jeez. In America, paranoia sure runs deep.

    What the heck are the employees going to do? Call the cops? Anyone with a cell phone in the theater can/will do just that. Criminals don’t care what a tiny little sign at the entrance says. Let regular folks carry their defensive weapons where ever they choose.

    Stop watching holly’shit’wood.

  3. The recent ‘theater shooting’ in Lafayette, Louisiana has all the hallmarks of another fake event. Five people interviewed in three separate news stories yet ALL the witnesses are somehow connected to the media and NONE of them have a Louisiana accent?

  4. I agree this works in favor of paranoia and “the problem
    with you is you’re not me” culture, defining the
    the basis of non-health and non-democracy that
    empowers demagogues.

    Texans have been arresting each others’
    kids for being kids for quite a while
    now though, so they’ve already god complexed
    their lives to shreds.
