Next month Hollywood will release a new movie called “The Hunt.”  it’s about liberal elites hunting down and killing Trump supporters. Matt Margolis:

In the past few days we’ve been hearing a lot about how Donald Trump’s rhetoric is apparently to blame for the El Paso shooting, yet Hollywood apparently lacked the foresight to think that a movie promoting violence against “deplorables” might be in bad taste until after the shootings in El Paso and Dayton, as only now is Universal rethinking their promotional strategy for the film.

“Did anyone see what our ratf**ker-in-chief just did?” one character asks early in the screenplay for The Hunt, a Universal Pictures thriller set to open Sept. 27. Another responds: “At least The Hunt’s coming up.Nothing better than going out to the Manor and slaughtering a dozen deplorables.”

In the aftermath of mass shootings within days of one another that shocked and traumatized the nation, Universal is re-evaluating its strategy for the certain-to-be-controversial satire. The violent, R-rated film from producer Jason Blum’s Blumhouse follows a dozen MAGA types who wake up in a clearing and realize they are being stalked for sport by elite liberals.

Over the Aug. 3 weekend, ESPN pulled an ad for the film that it had previously cleared, while AMC ran the spot during the season premiere of its drama The Preacher. It’s unclear whether the ads were identical, but the one yanked by ESPN opened with a sound resembling an emergency broadcast signal. A rep for ESPN parent Disney declined to comment on the move, but an ESPN source says no spots for the film will appear on the network in the coming weeks.

According to THR, the movie “features guns blazing along with other ultra-violent killings as the elites pick off their prey.”

As Margolis notes, this seems like a particularly stupid thing to do, and more so in light of recent events. Here’s the trailer

Does it strike anyone else as hypocritical for left wingers to produce such a violent movie featuring murder as sport given the phony wailing from the left about Trump’s alleged violent rhetoric?

This movie is no longer far fetched. Some are taking baby steps in this direction. Specifically, Joaquin Castro has published a hit list of Trump donors, without question in the hopes of visiting them economic harm and perhaps even physical harm.

Castro, twin brother of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro, posted late Monday night on Facebook that he was “sad to see so many San Antonians on this list of maximum donors to Donald Trump.” He specifically called out two companies, including a popular BBQ restaurant, and posted a list of 44 donors, with their full names and employers.

Trump campaign official Tim Murtaugh highlighted the post on Tuesday, calling it a “target list.”

“This is Joaquin Castro, Congressman & chair of his brother’s campaign,” Murtaugh wrote. “Naming private citizens & their employers, targeting them for political views and exercising 1st Amendment rights.”

“At the very least [Castro] is inviting harassment of these private citizens,” he said. “At worst, he’s encouraging violence.”

Castro also managed to er, shoot himself in the foot

Congressman Joaquin Castro (D-TX) thought he only put Trump supporters on blast when he posted a list revealing each campaign donor’s name and employer. Instead, he revealed that one of the same Trump donors was also his donor, according to a Fox News exclusive.

Castro included his own supporter in the list posted to Twitter Monday and his donor was not happy about the stunt.

Wayne Harwell confirmed to Fox News that he’s a donor to both politicians, but won’t be anymore announcing he’s pulling out of team Castro.

And while we’re at it- who is really calling for violence?
