For the second time in a week I was reading the news and the current headlines reminded me of something Seagal put in a movie years ago. So just in case this becomes a regular occurrence I decided to call this topic Seagal Predicts.
This one comes from that guy Rand Paul, son of Ron Paul (BRUNO) and winner of the Kentucky Republican Senate primary on Tuesday. Now that he’s in a senate race he’s having to live down all the outside-of-the-mainstream opinions he’s mouthed off about in the past, which it turns out is gonna be a hefty task because he’s a regular guest on the Alex Jones radio show.
I bring this up not to disagree with or make fun of any of those opinions, but just to point out that one of them was a claim that if the climate bill passed we would have “an army of armed EPA agents.” I think you know where I’m going with this:
Of course, Seagal didn’t need an army. In fact, he did pretty good when he wasn’t armed, too. But he played an armed, undercover EPA agent who went into Kentucky and busted businesses who were not living up to environmental standards. (and also murdering people.) Sounds like FIRE DOWN BELOW hit a little too close to home for Paul.
So Seagal in FIRE DOWN BELOW is Rand Paul’s worst nightmare. But if it’s any consolation to him, a Seagal character has also said positive things about “The Patriot Movement” that Paul is associated with. In THE PATRIOT Seagal said of anti-government militias, “I think the ideology of some of these folks is good.” As long as they’re not using chemical weapons for terrorism Seagal is open to what they have to say.
