'Red Dawn' Doles Out Tea Party Patriotism



According to, one of the definitions of the term "tea party" is as follows: an exciting disturbance or proceeding. Basically, a protest. Well, while everyone was out catching the Black Friday Deals (I caught a few myself), I decided to have my own little tea party and share the story with some fellow patriots.

My girlfriend's mother is hosting two foreign exchange students this year. One is from China and the other is from Thailand. For the sake of anonymity, we will refer to them as E and F. As I was searching for a film to kick off Thanksgiving weekend, I kept running into the mainstream reviews of the "Red Dawn" remake. To mention them specifically would be a disservice to my intelligence and yours. Anyway, I decided in protest of this lame and lazy smearing of the new "patriotic" film that I would go see it. But, I took E and F on the offhanded chance the film would capture the same American patriotism that the original practically defined for a generation of Americans.

I wasn't expecting much as the three of us took our seats in the packed theater. And they were simply following my lead expecting just another movie. I'm a big fan of John Milius's original film, and what I was expecting was a politically correct remake without an iota of intelligence in its head. But when the lights went down the three of us were subjected to a two-hour film filled with great action, unabashed patriotism and love for freedom.

We got "Red Dawn."
