U. S. movie star Morgan Freeman’s latest filmm was released on Sept. 19 9 and has already been viewed iewed by at least 350,000 0,000 people.
The film, or more correctly a video, is a two- minute appear-ppearance for a group p called Committee to Investigate Russia. In it, Freeman eman announces in his velvety baritone thathat America has been attacked, and is at war. He goes on to outline a film script in which a KGB GB officer, still bitter overver the demise of the Soviet oviet Union and the victoryctory of the United States and its allies in the Cold War, seizes power in Russia and builds an authoritarian regime. He then launches a cyberattack on the United States to undermine its media and institutions of democracy.
However, this script is not fiction, but fact, Freeman goes on to say, naming the KGB officer as Russian President Vladimir Putin. Freeman, who played the fictional U. S. President Tom Beck in the 1998 disaster movie “Deep Impact,” then slips into the role of U. S. President Donald Trump addressing his fellow Americans, and calling for Congress and the intelligence services to get to the bottom of Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Freeman’s performance did not go down well in Russia. The actor was subjected to mockery and abuse, the worst of which was a vicious video satire that depicted Freeman being kidnapped and forced to apologize to Russia before the monument to assault rifle designer Mikhail KalashnikovKalash in Moscow. TheTh Kremlin’s sham newsnew channel RT wrotewrot that Freeman had been “weaponized,”ized and Russia’s armiesarmi of Internet trolls and bots started to slam the actor under the hashtag # StopMorganLie.StopMor For the domesticdomes Russian audience,enc the Rossiya 24 television channeln claimed the 80-year-old actor was “losing it” because of overworkwo and smoking marijuana.mar WhileWh the idea of wea weaponized Morgan FreemanF is indeed awesome to contemplate, the fact that the Kremlin, via its mouthpieces, reacted so loudly to Freeman’s performance shows that it hit the mark. Ukraine has been the victim of election interference, and much graver meddling, at the hands of the Kremlin, and anyone who brings its wrongdoing to the attention of a wide audience is a friend indeed.
