A palate cleanser in honor of the fine Mexican holiday known to our president as “cinco de cuatro.” If you’re going to bathe in the cinematic blood of Nazi gringo border enforcers, at least be entertaining about it. This one is — thanks to an all-star cast, a bit of the ol’ ultraviolence, and the sort of schlock Mexploitation themes for which Robert Rodriguez is known and
loved somewhat liked. There’s a special message for Arizonans tucked in at the beginning of the trailer too; as a fun thought experiment, imagine the media reaction if the film’s politics were flipped. Bonus points to Rodriguez for including a favorite mantra of the revanchist crowd, “We didn’t cross the border, the border crossed us.”
Meanwhile, an ESPN online poll with more than 80,000 votes shows 54 percent disapprove of the “Los Suns’s” amnesty gimmick in tonight’s game. (No matter: “Los Spurs” say they wished they could have done it too.) And a Rasmussen poll of Floridians shows 62 percent in favor of an Arizona-style law for their state. Exit quotation from Exurban Jon: “Here’s how the Suns can avoid being called hypocrites: Don’t man the arena gates & whoever sneaks in w/out a ticket gets to stay.” Please observe your official content warning and click the image to watch.
