So I’m flipping through the channels, and I come across American Ninja 4: The Annihilation.
Now, with a title like that, I’m sure you can guess how bad it is, but let me just share the synopsis that popped up on the TV listing:
An ex-ninja must save commandos and the world from a mad sheik and his ninja army.
Yes, you read that right: an Arab sheik and his ninjas!
I watched about 15 minutes of it, and was thoroughly impressed by how they managed to insult Muslims, Arabs, women, Africans, the Japanese, the British, and, oddly enough, extras from the Mad Max movies, all in just that short amount of time. But I digress…
What I wanted to say was I believe this 1990 movie is actually the perfect propaganda campaign ad for Republicans in 2010. Think about it, what’s scarier than Evil Muslims (TM) who are planning to bomb New York with a suitcase nuke? Evil Muslims (TM) who are planning to bomb New York with a suitcase nuke + their ninja army!
Forget about them illegal Mexican day laborers, stir up your conservative base by appealing to their fear of Muslim ninjas!
You’re welcome, Republican Party.
