the film 'Sound Of Freedom' should have their hard drives examined
I recently went to see the movie Sound of Freedom with the expectation of a moderate level of political commentary or religious pontificating, given the rabid and widespread attacks on the film by the leftist media. All I knew going in was that the indie production was about child trafficking. After the film was over, my first thought was that it was an excellent film about a very dark and difficult issue. My second thought was "What the hell was all the fuss about? There's not a political moment in the entire story!"
The media war on the low-budget movie is so bizarre given this
fact that I am immediately suspicious of their intentions. Not one political
message, not one momentary critique of the political left, not one moment where
MAGA or Trump or "Q-Anon" is mentioned, not one "conspiracy
theory." So why all the hate?
reading this review any further, I highly recommend you check out some of the
hatchet job articles published about Sound
of Freedom to get a sense of what I'm talking about — examples
are here, here, here and here.
first thing you'll probably notice is that the majority of these vitriolic
diatribes use the exact same talking points. Suggesting that Sound of Freedom is
based on conspiracy, far-right extremism and that it is funded by a subversive
network of "Q-Anon adjacent" conservatives. Some journalists have
even attacked the veracity of the film's true story — the career of DHS agent
Tim Ballard, who operated covertly to take down child sex traffickers in
The Guardian asserts:
Caviezel stars as special agent Tim Ballard, a Homeland Security
Investigations operative who really did work for the state busting up
child-trafficking rings for more a decade. (Or so he claims – the DHS can
neither confirm nor deny the real Ballard’s employment history.) Even if he did
not literally have the face of Christ, Ballard would still exude an angelic
aura as he gently hoists dirty-faced moppets out of peril with the gravely
uttered catchphrase: "God’s children are not for sale.
Rolling Stone fumes:
Ballard, Caviezel, and others of their ilk had primed the public
to accept Sound of Freedom as a documentary rather than delusion by fomenting
moral panic for years over this grossly exaggerated "epidemic" of
child sex-trafficking, much of it funneling people into conspiracist rabbit
holes and QAnon communities. In short, I was at the movies with people who were
there to see their worst fears confirmed.
Perhaps Rolling Stone has
never heard of Epstein's Island? Why are they pretending like this criminal
enterprise is not a thing?
reviews are dripping with venom for the movie, though a simple investigation
into Tim Ballard reveals endless evidence that he did in fact quit his job at
DHS to operate in Central America to stop child trafficking rings. And the
sting that is the core of the film on an island Ballard set up as a trap to
capture an entire network of pedophiles as well as save 120 kids? Yeah, that
was real, too.
In fact, there's a documentary about Tim Ballard's successful
island sting called Triple Takeand
the Sound of Freedom movie
includes real-life arrest footage from that event. There is no question that almost every detail in Sound of Freedom is real. Any media outlet that says
otherwise is lying, and the fact that they are attempting to sow seeds of doubt
about the legitimacy of Tim Ballard based on politics is horrendous.
interesting part of the film that is not accurate
was the depiction of a Latin billionaire funding Tim Ballard's efforts. In
reality, Ballard says that it was primarily conservative host Glenn Beck who
raised money for his operations that led to the rescue of hundreds of children.
Why Glenn Beck was not mentioned in the final cut of the film is hard to say,
but Ballard's connection to Beck might partly explain the media's fury over the
movie. How dare these
conservative men save children from sex slavery, right? It makes conservatives
look like (GASP!) good guys.
there's something more going on here than mere envy on the part of leftist
journalists. The campaign against the movie is far too coordinated and far too
expansive (global). It is as if these people are interconnected and they all
agreed together to try to subvert the film, or they were all ordered to subvert
kind of behavior suggests a personal stake in creating conditions for failure;
it makes it seem like these journalists want to sabotage the movie because of
its premise and message. Why would someone want to sabotage a movie which
exposes child trafficking and pedophiles? Could it be that we need to check the
hard drives of some of these establishment media writers and producers?
think it's important to note that such people have been criminally prosecuted
for child sex abuse in the past. For example, long-time CNN producer John Griffin was recently arrested
and convicted of child rape, using online apps to connect with mothers willing
to sell their children to him for thousands of dollars so he could abuse them
at his Vermont vacation home.
year the FBI raided the home of renowned ABC News producer James Gordon Meek
and arrested him on charges of transporting child pornography. Rolling Stone magazine was later accused of trying to cover up
the reason for the arrest with selective editing and omission. Rolling Stone is
now one of the main outlets attacking Sound
the movie makes these journalists angry because it exposes one of their
a long-time film buff, and I can say with some authority that as a movie, Sound of Freedom is
well made and well executed. The overall acting is effective, the child
performances are amazing, the editing is excellent, and the cinematography is
top-notch. The film is good all around. My only complaint is that I felt they
should have shown Tim Ballard with his family more so that when he makes the
decision to go to Columbia and risk his life, the choice carries more weight.
than that, Sound of
Freedom is one of the best dramas I have seen in a long time,
and at no point did I feel "preached at." I can't say the same for
most Hollywood films of the past several years, which are replete with nonstop
depiction of the process of child trafficking is very uncomfortable, but it's
meant to be. I rarely squirm in my chair with discomfort or get angry at characters
on a screen, but every time there was a scene with a pedophile all I could
think was "I want to put that guy in a woodchipper." That's good
again, there are few, if any, valid criticisms to make about the production
itself and the story is largely accurate. Why are leftist journalists raging
against this movie? I think because it exposes the fact that pedophilia is not
only about isolated cases of loners stalking school playgrounds, but also an
international industry worth billions upon billions of dollars, and there are
very rich and powerful people involved in that industry (including people in
don't want people to consider the pervasive nature of this criminal underworld.
They want people to be passive and unaware. For some reason, they want people
to assume that child slavery is a conspiracy theory.
the political left has been aggressively targeting children with sexualization
for the past several years, primarily through the imposition of trans ideology.
They are turning the sexualization of minors into a movement. Children as young
as kindergarten are being indoctrinated with "gender identity"
propaganda and highly pornographic
books (including pornographic images) posing as educational LGBT content are
being planted in public schools. We all know that the end game of this movement
is the normalization of pedophilia.
conclude: Go see this movie. The media attacks are clearly designed to dissuade
people from watching it based on political bias. Watch it and you will realize
quickly that all their claims are false. Furthermore, you'll start to wonder
aloud why they hate Sound
of Freedom. The saying "Methinks thou dost protest too
much..." comes to mind, as such journalists reveal their propensity for evil.
