Above is the first scene from the 2006 movie "Idiocracy." And that Clevon family, well that is the perfect representation of today's Donald Trump supporters.
Here is more from the AV Club:
When Idiocracy was released in 2006, it didn’t make much of an impact upon the world. In fact, most people didn’t even know it existed. 20th Century Fox had a contractual obligation to release Mike Judge’s follow-up to Office Space, but they pretty much just tucked it away. After being sat on for more than a year, it initially opened in just seven cities, and with practically zero publicity—not even so much as a trailer. Now, just one decade later, Idiocracy is practically a household term, which is as much a testament to the film’s enduring satirical genius as it is to the country’s terrifying free-fall which includes, among other things, a not-totally-impossible Trump presidency.
And since it’s hard to shiver in fear while you’re laughing, the Alamo Drafthouse And Art House Convergence Theaters have decided to screen the film for one night only this coming October 4. Alamo explained the decision in a press release:
"Ten years ago, satirist Mike Judge told of an impossible future in which our collective intelligence had dropped so low it threatened to destroy the world. In this future, America was run by a corrupt, sociopathic former pro-wrestler with severe anger management issues, and the most popular entertainment in the land was a YouTube-esque video playlist called “Ow My Balls.”
Flash forward to today. We are approaching the end of the most bizarre, absurdist presidential race in U.S. history. Over the past months, thousands have questioned in social media whether Idiocracy was actually a documentary. Mike Judge’s sadly prescient film has transcended its cult classic status to become a vibrant and essential facet of this election conversation."
We are where we are because while the smartest Americans have been thinking things through and carefully planning their lives and the lives of their children, the Clevons of the country have been running around breeding like rabbits and doing the bare minimum to educate themselves or make any kind of contribution to the planet.
All of course with the full support of the Republican party whose life blood is the uneducated, hyper religious, non-critical thinking voters of America.
And if you think that this Clevon family seems familiar well you are probably thinking of their real world doppelgangers.
Yeah, scary isn't it?
