Tommy Lee Jones' contemptuous, sarcastic parting remark to the INS officers: "Hit the road.Keep on protecting us from 'dangerous' aliens." And just before that, "Don't 'Sir!' me! You have no idea who you're dealing with!"
Rush (from the album "Moving Pictures")
The night is black
Without a moon
The air is thick and still
The vigilantes gather on
The lonely torch lit hill
Features distorted in the flickering light
The faces are twisted and grotesque
Silent and stern in the sweltering night
The mob moves like demons possessed
Quiet in conscience, calm in their right
Confident their ways are best
The righteous rise
With burning eyes
Of hatred and ill-will
Madmen fed on fear and lies
To beat and burn and kill
They say there are strangers who threaten us
In our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness too dangerous
In our theaters and bookstore shelves
That those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves
Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand...
New World Man - RUSH Song Lyrics
He's a rebel and a runner
He's a signal turning green
He's a restless young romantic
Wants to run the big machine
He's got a problem with his poisons
But you know he'll find a cure
He's cleaning up his systems
To keep his nature pure
Learning to match the beat of the Old World Man
Learning to catch the heat of the Third World Man
He's got to make his own mistakes
And learn to mend the mess he makes
He's old enough to know what's right
But young enough not to choose it
He's noble enough to win the world
But weak enough to lose it
He's a New World Man...
He's a radio receiver
Tuned to factories and farms
He's a writer and arranger
And a young boy bearing arms
He's got a problem with his power
With weapons on patrol
He's got to walk a fine line
And keep his self-control
Trying to save the day for the Old World Man
Trying to pave the way for the Third World Man
He's not concerned with yesterday
He knows constant change is here today
He's noble enough to know what's right
But weak enough not to choose it
He's wise enough to win the world
But fool enough to lose it
He's a New World Man...
Sounds like the writers of "Men in Black" and the writers of "Witch Hunt" share similar contemptuous views on immigrants and those who view them as potentially threatening.
(Update 7-1-10: "The presence of the New World Order must be defined in much the same way as the presence of a "black hole" is in the field of astrophysics: by its effects on the time-space continuum around it. "Black Hole" theory predicts that certain phenomena will occur in the vicinity of a black hole, but the black hole itself cannot be directly observed because it swallows up light itself. New World Order Theory also predicts certain phenomena that will be enumerated here as evidence of its presence and influence in the world, especially in the United States of America."
INS. Immigration and Naturalization Service. "Service."
Melting Pot. Purifies the metal and separates the impurities.
One free-enterprise nation under God.
ICE. Immigration and Customs Enforcement."Enforcement."
Trash compactor. Reduces everything to an easily managed unit of worthless garbage.
One collectivist world economy under man.
"Independence Day" is the Fourth of July.
"Independence Day" commemorates the "Declaration of Independence" of the United States of America.
"May Day" is the First of May.
"May Day" commemorates the founding of the New World Order.
We don't say "May Day" when we're in trouble.
We say "Broken Arrow!". (Comes from the wild, wild west.WWW. Hmmmm.)
You should have left the Fourth of July and the United States of America alone.
The Fresh Prince: "Parents just don't understand".
Believe me. It is you who "just don't understand" and have "no idea Who you're dealing with".
1And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
2And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
3And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
5Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.
6And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
7And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
8And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
9And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
10Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
11And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
12Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
13But go thou thy way till the end be: for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.
Inspired movie making? Note "conspiracy theorists of the world unite"; "9-11-40"; and the protracted collapse of the burning building. Is that weird or what? Gene Hackman made a movie called "The Conversation" that is very similar in plot line and professional circle to this one: clandestine surveillance.
