Read the story about the three American heroes here.
In today’s world, good news on the fight against terrorism is always welcomed. This story of three handsome, young, diverse, active-duty American friends foiling a terrorist attack in another country, followed by receiving international and domestic honors and praise, is Hollywood perfect. The only question left is which studio will win the movie rights and how fast can it get to the theaters.
EXPECT THESE MOVEMENT WARRIORS TO MAKE SOME/STRONG USE OF THIS EVENT IN COMMENTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA
Pro-Military – MW’s will say things like ‘See how safe the world can be when our well-trained boys are at the ready and vigilant’ and ‘That terrorist nut job wouldn’t have been taking down by a bunch of skinny jean wearing, anti-war hipsters’.
Pro-Big Brother – I know this might be the smallest group of MW’s on the internet but this event does support the idea of international cooperation and monitoring being effective tools to keep the public safe.
EXPECT THESE MOVEMENT WARRIORS TO BE SILENT OR ON THE DEFENSIVE
Blacks as Victims of Racism – The black (or multi-racial) guy in this story, Anthony Saddler, was going on vacation with two white childhood friends. He also is active-duty, currently enrolled in a 4 year college, and is a brother in a non-black fraternity. These MW’s have pretty much nothing to work with here. This young man seems to go against the grain of the miserable, oppressed black man in a society set up to hate and keep him down. It just might be possible for non-racist white people to exist…who knew?
White Supremacist/ Hate – I’ll admit that you do see more diverse friendships on commercials than real life. Visually though, they are always a slap against the idea that different races can’t get along, form close bonds, and actually not have skin color alone define or limit them. Even worst for these MW’s is the black, patriotic, military hero. After all, the narrative they depend on is the black male draining society of resources, destroying society with crime, and sitting around on a porch blaming the white man for his problems. This guy would be the husband most of these MW’s would dream for their daughters to marry…well except for the whole ‘black’ thing.
Anti-Gun – It was great that the single nut job got taken down, but what if it had been more than one. And no matter what security seems to be in place, bad people seem to always be able to get weapons on the scene. This incident supports the idea that the citizens on the scene can do more to stop an attack then waiting for the time it takes for law enforcement to arrive. Though a gun wasn’t used by the heroes, these MW’s might see this as a blow to their cause.
