Leftist New Yorker attacks ‘A Quiet Place’ as family uses guns for protection, it’s ‘regressive politics’

While A Quiet Place is making an amazing run at the box office, leftists are angry over the depiction of gun use for protection, describing the film as a right-wing “fantasy of survivalism,” lacks an “authentic inner expression” but manages to “bring to the fore” the “idealistic elements of gun culture.”

The New Yorker bashes the successful film as the antithesis of Get Out, drawing a shocking racist perspective out the thriller.

“The one sole avowed identity of the Abbott parents is as their children’s defenders; their more obvious public identity is as a white rural family. The only other people in the film, who are more vulnerable to the marauding creatures, are white as well. In their enforced silence, these characters are a metaphorical silent—white—majority, one that doesn’t dare to speak freely for fear of being heard by the super-sensitive ears of the dark others.”

Writer Richard Brody sees race everywhere, drawing out a shocking commentary on culture.

“It’s significant that when characters—two white men—commit suicide-by-noisemaking, they do so by howling as if with rage, rather than by screeching or singing or shouting words of love to their families. (Those death bellows are the wordless equivalent of ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’) Whether the Abbotts’ insular, armed way of life might put them into conflict with other American families of other identities is the unacknowledged question hanging over A Quiet Place, the silent horror to which the movie doesn’t give voice.”

The Daily Wire mocked Brody’s insane perspective: “Hollywood’s leftist critics would have preferred the family either died at the hands of alien forces, or defended themselves with whatever kitchen implements haven’t been banned by our alien encounter in 2020.”

Gun control, racism, hatred and division…this is how the left sees America.
