The True Loss of Sony Pulling 'The Interview'

Hitler Punch

The outrage over Sony pulling The Interview is misplaced. We shouldn’t be mad about letting the hackers win, we should be mad that we’re not adding to the rich history of fictional Americans punching foreign leaders in the face!

Captain America punched Hitler. Charlie Sheen and Lloyd bridges blew up Saddam Hussein (twice!). Rocky single handedly brought down the Soviet Union. There’s the entire movie Team America: World Police. Leslie Nielsen took out an entire room of America’s enemies in The Naked Gun! Hell, remember when the idiotic Red Dawn remake changed its villains from China to North Korea? It didn’t even make sense!

America has a long, proud history of taking down leaders it doesn’t like on film. Dammit, that tradition of face punching gusto needs to continue.
