In the dystopian horror action series “The Purge”, the United States government allows a “purge,” a yearly 12-hour event within which any crime can be committed with impunity. In the movies, people are murdered in the streets and in their homes as anything goes for 24 hours.
In creepy social media footage,
Protesters loudly blasted a message from the dystopian thriller “The Purge” encouraging violence, as riots in Minneapolis continued into the third night.
In footage of the protests from Thursday, a disturbing announcement from the film is amplified through a loudspeaker proclaiming, “Any and all crime, including murder, will be legal for 12 continuous hours,” before sounding a siren similar to an air raid siren. Infowars uncovered this eerie social media post
In the movie the ominous public service announcement is played before the bloodshed begins:
This is not a test.
This is your emergency broadcast system announcing the commencement of the Annual Purge sanctioned by the U.S. Government. Weapons of class 4 and lower have been authorized for use during the Purge. All other weapons are restricted. Government officials of ranking 10 have been granted immunity from the Purge and shall not be harmed. Commencing at the siren, any and all crime, including murder, will be legal for 12 continuous hours. Police, fire, and emergency medical services will be unavailable until tomorrow morning at 7 a.m., when The Purge concludes. Blessed be our New Founding Fathers and America, a nation reborn.
May God be with you all.
Below is footage from the riot, and you hear the message from the movie blasting.
Life imitating art?
