Just caught The Angry Birds movie as I was cleaning the house. (My kids loved it).

There were a few themes that really stood out and reminded me of threads from a few weeks ago on the emasculation of the West
The emasculation of the modern male

The movie has themes of emasculation, mass immigration and Islam.

A basis synopsis of the storyline:

* Red the angry bird is shunned from his society because of his angry outbursts.
* He is made to attend an anger management class run by a woman, where they read poetry, hug and talk about feelings. In the class the biggest and 'blokiest' birds are reduced to emotionally weak.
*A mysterious bearded pig comes to town in a boat and introduces himself and his companion saying that they are from Piggy Island and there's only the two of them.
*The birds throw a welcoming party where the Pig burns the stage down with an explosion. The pig also introduce several 'weapons' into the birds society such as the giant sling shot.
*Angry bird climbs aboard the Pigs ship to find the hull full of hundreds of pigs (refugees)
*they bring the pigs back and tell everyone that the bearded pig has been lying about how many there are.
*An Owl (the judge who sentenced him to anger management) berates the Angry bird and finds it more alarming that he snuck aboard the pigs ship in the first place.
*The birds eggs start getting stolen and Angry Bird and his friends are the only ones to notice whiole the Pigs distract the birds with a cowboy show
*Angry bird climbs to the top of a mountain range to find the legendary eagle (American Dream) who is said to watch over the land.
* The birds lead by Red go to Piggy Island to retrieve their kids before they're eaten for lunch.
*The Bearded Pig starts blowing up the city with TNT

Judge Peckinpah (Owl): There seems to be a recurring issue here, anger.
Red: I don't have an anger issue, I think you got an anger issue. Are you aware that robe you are wearing isn't fooling anyone?

Red: These pigs are mysterious and weird, am I right? I don't trust them! I think they're up to something!
Judge Peckinpah Owl: Your opinion is not needed!
-- The Left's attempt at shutting down immigration debate

Red: I don't need some happy detached birds. I need some angry, flocking birds!"

Bobby's Mom: [after Red attacks the Anger Management sign] Don't look, Bobby! The anger might be contagious!
(fear of anger)

Leonard [Bearded Pig]: [seeing one of the eggs] Is that what I think it is?
Red: Excuse me! Those are fragile, alright? Not yours.
Judge Peckinpah OWL: You are makin' our guest feel unwelcome!
Red: And you're not asking basic questions!
[a pig slaps his butt]
--The owl (symbol of NWO) wants the birds to make the pigs feel welcomed, even change themselves to make the pigs feel comfortable. Red asks why nobody is questioning the pigs' motives in coming here and whether or not they are dangerous fugitives.

What say you? Did you interpret these same themes? Did you find other NWO references that I missed?

I think you need stop watching cartoons. You're projecting waaay too much that isn't there onto them.

This video came out around the same time as the movie and makes a few of the same points you do, I haven't seen it yet (the movie, not the video) but its on my list.

There is a long history of hiding deep political and social commentary in works made for children, Animal Farm for instance. Maybe things have gotten so Orwellian that Orwell's tactic is once again necessary.

I saw the same correlations when I watched the movie as well. Good observations. I don't know what to make of it though.

I'm not gonna watch a kids movie but it seems there was a message in this one, a fairly blatant one.

The message being: Western civilisation is going down the drain. What's new?

Good points op except...

In the end the Birds fight back and win in the end. Red bird appears strong on in control and still a strong male.

So if what you say is right then the theme of the movie is that we can defeat Islam by being strong and fighting back. The strong male figure is still a valid Archetype in our society.

Yes? No?

I guess it depends on why illuminati/whomever would put subliminal messages in movies/music videos in the first place. I don't know that I believe all of the hype about symbolism in music vids. I think it's just clever marketing and hoping people will discuss the conspiracy and buy the music.

The themes of false refugees, emasculation etc in the Angry Birds movie is blatant. So If it really was put in there purposely it goes against the main alleged agenda of NWO and illuminati being a one world government and socialist ideals. Whereby nationalism is destroyed in favour of multiculturalism. Homogeneous society is flooded with other races and that being seen as a positive occurrence. The wealth of 1st world countries being divided up and distributed to the 3rd world etc.

Like I said I am a fence sitter in regards to those motives and general illuminati symbolism but this movie has made me think
