Leaked Machete Script Confirms Race War Plot

May 13, 2010

A script leaked for the upcoming film Robert Rodriguez Machete confirms fears that the film seeks to build up a racial cult figure who kills for the cause of illegal immigrants.

Alex Jones first put out a video warning about the potential of Machete to kickstart a race war after he was warned by two Hispanic members of Robert Rodriguez production crew about its offensive message. Last week, an Internet-hyped Illegal trailer for the film revealed many politicized aspects added to the already violence-laced film premise of a pissed off Mexican who wipes out his American enemies with a machete and a mob. The 70s exploitation-styled film was first spoofed in Rodriguez & Tarantinos Grindhouse before it was fully developed as a feature. It is, however, no longer a joke.

Now that production for Machete is wrapping up in Austin, it is clear that its racially driven plot plays upon thin stereotypes, pejorative cross-culture terms and exacerbated divisions between immigrants and white people.

The film is dangerous because it glorifies Machete as a hero, invoking his fictional racial struggle alongside clear parallels to current events and headlines ripped from topical news. We have already seen episodes of violent attacks, declarations of violent intent at protests (such as in Arizona and Santa Cruz, California) and demonstrable anger over attempts as regulation, such as Arizonas recent controversial legislation.

Further, the script seeks to build a cult icon in Machete, a character whom Rodriguez plans to expand into sequel enterprises. By the end, the vicious revenge killer is cast in the holy light of a martyr; his likeness is placed on religious candles as the Virgin Mary or Jesus Christ would be [see script references]. Vulnerable illegal immigrants, seeking to evade crude Militia Men characters as they cross the border, pray to Machete for protection, in the hopes they he will wipe out their enemies. Machete becomes a folk hero of sorts, like a Father Hidalgo figure, and his iconography carries over into the traditional use of the machete as a symbol of peasant uprisings. Thus, he becomes a light to all those who seek to defeat their oppressors (by whatever means necessary, if the film is any indication).

Religious inculcation is further induced by associating the Catholic church with Machetes revenge plot—who is set-up for the assassination of an anti-immigration Texas Senator, who in turn seeks to portray illegals as a terroristic group seeking violence.

The Senator utilizes this false-flag scenario to cover for his own association with extremist militia groups, one of which is known in the script as Freedom Force, the same name as the pro-sovereignty, anti-globalization, anti-Federal Reserve patriot group founded by G. Edward Griffin. It is these elements of Machete which seem more akin to the recent media attacks by the Southern Poverty Law Center and Anti-Defamation League than they do to good movie plot conventions.

Throughout the script, groups aligned with political attempts to curb, restrict and/or control illegal immigration are thoroughly demonized. Minute Men and militia are portrayed as wanton killers, picking off illegal children in the desert like jackrabbits and slinging derogatory terms like wetback.

Characters with over-zealous all-American attitudes are served Machetes brand of justice, such as when one enemy is impaled with an American flag and asked if he would die for freedom.

Other Hispanic characters, such as the one played by Steven Seagal, are termed porchos and accused of selling out their people. We used to stand together, Seagals character tells Machete. Im still standing, replies the racial folk hero Machete before killing his opponent.
