A Face in the Crowdi is a hysterical biopic of the herdemocracy pantsuit horde taking a long, hard look at itself, not liking what it sees one bit, but not one bit I tell you, and then in characteristic fashion shying away into the closet to pretend there in the safety of the slightly musky, tight surroundings that it's better than it. Who's better ? Herdemocracy pantsuit. Better than what ? Herdemocracy pantsuit! How's that supposed to work ? Don't worry about it, they'll write a book to punch you for them.
For the actual human mind, uninvolved in the myopic "convictions" of the subhuman horde, the item is amusing because guess what ? Sixty years ago it was the Republican party that was trying to swell the voter rolls with uneducated, inept bumpkins ready to swallow the manipulation hook. Back in 1957 it was the Republican party line that "I don't think people know what they need, but I do". These things alternate, you see, first one end of the nonsense stick dips into the pond, then the other, then the first again, then the second and so on. You don't hear about the great Republican drives in the Jewish press, but the electoral history of the US doesn't just consist of Lincoln giving every liberated slave forty acres and a mule followed by the Majorette Movement followed by Obama marching on Washington for "Civil Rights". These inflationary events were interspersed with quantitative easings of Irishmen, and Southerners, and assorted "silent majorities" into mainstream politics.
Anyway, you should probably watch this film because, whether they know it (or most likely not), it fully depicts the libertard imaginary & imagological perception of Trump. They expect Trump to Andy Griffith. They don't know why they expect this, they just do. Even the ones that haven't actually seen the thing -- they've seen their peers, and their elders, who've seen it, and unverbally communicated it, or enough of it for our purpose here at any rate.
The "left" took one hard look at itself in Donald Trump, and really didn't like what it saw. This is the essential core of libertard disarray today, and, amusingly, it is best summarized by pointing to an ancient, obscure film six decades old.
