The Film Red Dawn is a classic 80’s movie and one of the last great patriotic films. In that movie, set back in 1984, the Soviets, Cuban and Nicaraguan Army invade the United States. A rag tag band of teen age/early 20’s guerrilla fighters form a group called Wolverines, named after their football team, and they lead the resistance. The movie ends with the Wolverines decimated but shows that America eventually goes on to win WWIII.
Well there is now a remakeset in today’s time. In this version China and Russia invade the US on the pretext that the America’s fiscal and economic irresponsibility is a threat to world stability. This time it take places in the Pacific Northwest and not Colorado like in the original.
Here is a synopsis:
Set against the backdrop of contemporary politics, the film begins with an American withdrawal from Iraq. The President decides to redeploy troops to Taiwan, where escalating Chinese militarism is threatening America’s ally. At the same time, he also welcomes the former Soviet republic of Georgia into NATO, unleashing Russian worries that America is spreading its sphere of influence deep into Eastern Europe. Having destabilized relations with two of the world’s largest powers, the President then claims that the U.S. is only partly to blame for a global economic meltdown, further escalating tensions with China and ultimately leading to the invasion of the Pacific Northwest.
While the scenario is far-fetched, China’s occupation of America carries several elements that seem oddly plausible. Soon after their arrival, the Chinese invaders put up dozens of inspirational posters. One shows a red mallet smashing the U.S. Capitol under the title “Defeating Your Enemy.” Another shows a selection of doughnuts, proclaiming “Obscene Choice. A Weapon of Mass Distraction.” Above all, the theme of the invasion seems to be that America’s economic woes have led to its overthrow and that the Chinese invaders will help the country to recover its economic footing. One poster, for example, depicts a red-clad worker beating a dollar sign under the slogan “Repairing Your Economy.”
This is the flag of the Chinese Occupied United States.

Although the film is slated for release in November it’s very possible that it will not see the light of day. Progressive organizations are already calling this racist and xenophobic. China is already complaining about this movie and as we know in this day and age, Hollywood is concerned about how foreigners view it. However it gets even more interesting. There is an Australian movie that is also similar to Red Dawn, but set in today’s Australia. Tomorrow, When the War Began is about a rag tag group of teenagers fight a Chinese invasion of Australia. This is actual based on a book trilogy.
Is this scenario plausible at all? One never knows the future and if it were to happen, the Progressives would welcome in the Chinese and Russians as liberators. That would not be fictional or far fetched. In fact, a certain Jazz Artist and his blog would probably welcome the invaders as liberators from the evil “racists”!
