“If you really want to enslave people, tell them that you’re going to give them total freedom.”

- L. Ron Hubbard

Even without all of its connections to QAnon Sound Of Freedom is a heavy handed and self-indulgent film about an important subject that it never bothers to even grasp. The movie is about a real person but one who is pretending to be someone he isn’t. Jim Caviezel plays Tim Ballard a man supposedly a former special agent investigating Human Trafficking for the Department of Homeland Security and Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force who started his own nonprofit organization Operation Underground Railroad that runs sting operations to catch sex traffickers across the globe. Everything about Ballard and the group OUR has been reviled and rejected by other child trafficking groups and experts. Ballard is simply a right-wing con artist from BYU who was hired by QAnon crazy Glenn Beck to save kids who they weren’t even sure needed saving. (I’ve posted a separate article all about Ballard and OUR at the end of this review.) Actor Jim Caviezel who famously played Jesus Christ in fellow QAnon’s Mel Gibson movie The Passion Of The Christ plays Ballard almost as a deity figure. He has no flaws and has many Jesus moments in Sound Of Freedom. A scene where he and his adopted children are sitting at the kitchen table for a meal is framed to resemble The Last Supper where Jesus and his disciples ate their final meal together before he was dragged away to face his crucifixion. In Sound Of Freedom, he drags himself away because Tim Ballard sees himself as a Jesus figure and Caviezel likes to play Jesus. The character of Ballard, as in right wing circles, is perceived as supernatural as he’s supposedly fighting an issue nobody sees but him. He’s constructed like a visionary who is sacrificing for others. The messiah of stopping child trafficking. Of course, Ballard is only a self-appointed Messiah as everyone else in his line of work trying to do something about Human Trafficking denounces him and his “work” completely. Like the Passion of The Christ Sound Of Freedom implores many horror movie motifs and techniques setting up the audience for a God vs Devil sensation to be more easily accessed. The movie pushes a lot of emotional buttons that are easy to reach, and it will certainly pack a powerful and emotional punch especially inside people who are already irrational and brainwashed and waiting for anything to help them breakdown and lash out in anger. The anger and the outrage mostly directed at the U.S Government over the accusation that they aren’t doing anything about the issue is the reason for Sound Of Freedom and was built into the movie. The anger will mostly be aimed at Liberals and Democrats who will reject the movie because of the truth about QAnon, Ballard and Caviezel. The movie is designed for QAnon followers upon viewing to have a highly emotional epiphany that comes with a built-in attack response toward anyone who criticizes the movie as a pedophile who harvests organs which makes taking the movie at face value all the more impossible. Democrats will be to blame Meanwhile it was 20 Republicans in congress voted against the anti-human trafficking bill. Liberals will be accused of not thinking raping children is bad while it’s QAnon Republicans who want to so enjoy sitting through two hours of child molestation. The movie’s filmed sexual attacks on kid is a delivery device for QAnon’s to enjoy the child molestation scenes and then be able take credit for being the only ones to stop the child molesters. It’s another get all your cake and eat it too Conservative party. The box office success Sound Of Freedom is generating isn’t surprising. Conspiracy movies are big business especially religious ones The Passion Of The Christ made $612 Million Dollars. Other major conspiracy movies have always shared blockbuster glory. In 1991 Oliver Stone’s tea party fantasy movie about the Kennedy assassination JFK made $205 Million at the box office making it the sixth highest grossing movie that year and was lauded with critical praise and awards. RNC Fixture Clint Eastwood’s racist lie American Sniper made $547 Million and passed Saving Private Ryan to become the highest grossing war movie of all time. The campaigning for the movie is years in the making as Sound Of Freedom was completed in 2018 but couldn’t find a distributor for obvious reasons. It has also garnered many celebrity endorsements in a crusade like campaign of immense importance for fanatics and hate mongers in the conservative movement. Sound Of Freedom is the natural result of a lifetime of dangerous and unchecked Conservative and Republican lies. The lies are just wilder now because as the result of so much losing and the delivery of multiculturalism to America. The term “Woke” literally means not being a white Christian man and of course any other movie about social issues involving nonwhites is woke but Sound Of Freedom is an immediately needed important weapon to fight child trafficking and pedophilia. In fact, according to QAnon’s without the movie children will still be being raped forever. The real end game with Sound Of Freedom isn’t box office receipts or awards and is entirely disturbing and critical. Jim Caviezel has asserted that Sound Of Freedom will be a new Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Uncle Tom’s Cabin is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Published in two volumes in 1852, the novel had a deep impact on attitudes toward African Americans and slavery in the United States. By the estimations of a multitude of historians it is also said to have assisted in laying the groundwork for the American Civil War. Jim Caviezel is not so subtly calling for Sound Of Freedom to help kick of the new civil war that Conservatives have been begging for since the first one ended. Caviezel is calling for an all-hands-on deck revolutionary reaction to Sound Of Freedom. He knows he has dynamite on his hands, and he wants to use it. Caviezel has repeatedly stressed the movie’s importance. “The power of this is that your heart gets on fire,” said Caviezel. “Why does it get on fire? Because they feel the love of Jesus. … You’re not afraid anymore.” Sound Of Freedom gets to be about ending child trafficking, starting a new civil war and about God. Sound Of Freedom is a Right-wing invention so it gets to be about whatever it wants with no pushback by new outlets no matter the various contradictions. Fox News is pushing the movie hard and has already jumped on the “Liberals are calling Sound Of Freedom QAnon because they’re really child molesters” argument. The Republican Party is a hate group with many different tiers. Republican tears, create Republican tiers. Tea party, MAGA QAnon. Every time Republicans lose a new one springs up. The less white the country becomes the more hateful tiers are built. For Caviezel especially this is another come to Jesus moment that he hopes will radicalize a large section of Americans to lead a revolt against the Government. Sound of Freedom is hate disguised as love and the reaction to it will be the result of a lifetime of Republican hate. Sound Of Freedom is pure propaganda because the main directive of the movie isn’t to entertain or even to tell a story. The main objective is to capture the national consciousness in a contrived spontaneity effort to lead to a new civil war.
