DemDaily: The Top Political Movies of all Time
If you're a conservative or you want to know why conservatives love Ayn Rand, see this movie. Gary Cooper stars as a lone wolf architect who designs innovative buildings, which don't suit the tastes of the establishment. It's really a story about the battle between a maverick and a faceless mass society that demands conformity. The subtext is an attack on socialism. I don't know if Bernie Sanders has seen the movie or not. But he should see it if he wins the Democratic nomination to see how the GOP attacks him.
Peter Sellers plays multiple hilarious roles as a US President, British air force officer and wheelchair-bound former Nazi scientist. In this cold war satire, George C. Scott plays a deranged army general who wants to nuke the Russians who he believes are using fluoridation to pollute our "precious bodily fluids." The last scene is a classic. An American bomber pilot played by Slim Pickens waves his cowboy hat as he straddles a nuclear bomb that he just has dropped on Russia.
Enjoy the weekend!
