Get your ironic smug idiocy on with Last Ounce of Courage!

Directly quoting from the above video complete with many typos:

“Last Ounce of Courage,” is an intergenerational story of a grieving father inspired by his grandson to take a stand for faith and freedom against a tide of apathy and vanishing liberty. Against a backdrop of military conflict abroad and domestic wars against freedom, a highly-decorated combat veteran is reminded that we best honor our fallen heroes by not holding too loosely what they gave their all to defend. Alongside fellow citizens of courage, faith and integrity, he champions the cherished principles we the people hold dear.

Starring Marshall Teague (“Roadhouse,” “The Rock” and “Armageddon”) as small-town mayor Bob Revere, “Last Ounce of Courage” uses the vehicle of a public religious display to ignite a spark and lights

a fire under a community that honors its American values, but has tired of fighting the “American Civil Liberties Organization” (ACLO) over the very rights guaranteed them by the Constitution. Former NFL great Fred Williamson (“Black Caesar”) ably plays the villain in the film as the head of the ACLO.

Encouraged by his grandson, played by Hunter Gomez (“National Treasure”), and his wife Dottie, played by Academy Award nominee Jennifer O‟Neill (“Summer of ‟42”), Bob finally takes a stand for his beliefs and revives his townspeople‟s latent patriotism. Leading the younger generation to join in and make a difference is Bob‟s young neighbor, Maddie Rogers, played by Jenna Boyd (“Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants”), who comically hijacks the town‟s annual generic school pageant.

The film is being produced by Veritas Entertainment, under the leadership of Kevin McAfee (“Beyond the Gates of Splendor,” “The End of the Spear”) and Steve Griffin (former CEO at Nest Entertainment and EMI/Chordant), both of whom have a passion for creating and reaching audiences with entertainment products centered around the character values that undergird family, faith and freedom.

Yes, it’s a Christian film that’s unironically a hypocritical piece of garbage standing against everything it attempts to be standing for because the real agenda is the complete opposite of what it states. It’s pure propaganda. The hero is a mayor whose son sacrificed his life fighting overseas in Afghanistan against religious extremists. This so inspires the mayor that he honors his son’s sacrifice by becoming a religious extremist. Okay. Sure, but it’s totally different because they’re different religions! Check out how easily the mayor owns the lawyer from the ACLU…I mean, the ACLO, as neither of them seem to have any idea what is actually in the Constitution! That lawyer guy never knew what he was messing with, a small town mayor!

Of course, it doesn’t matter how ridiculous this looks, it’s not made for mainstream audiences. It’s specifically designed for the hardcore Christian right, the group of people who make me ashamed to be a Christian. People who would be all for the exact same rules that the Taliban wants, except word search “Allah” and replace with “God”. This built in audience has probably already given this film a return on investment. It’s sort of weird that there is now an entire genre of Evil Lawyer versus Good Christian films, what with Christmas with a Capital C from last year. We even had lawyers suing the Devil for Suing the Devil! If I were to speculate, I’d guess this odd lawyer fascination is a response to losing a lot of court cases, and the proliferation of crackpot legal theories on rightwing boards, like those sovereign citizen weirdos or the Birthers. It’s scary out there, and it’s only going to get more crazy after they lose in November.

And be sure to check out the official “Patriot Day” screenings on September 11th. So tasteful you’ll be spitting out the toxic waste.

Remember, you’re not a real patriot unless you have a giant American flag on your motorcycle and children sacrificed to our military industrial complex.
