Definition of multi-cinema civil disobedience [MCCD]:
Watching one movie at a multiplex cinema, while having purchased a ticket for another.
MCCD is a conservative [or right-winger, take your pick, it’s the other side than runs from labels] movie lover’s rational response to avoid voting with our dollars to profit our political and cultural opponents. Seth MacFarlane more than qualifies.
MacFarlane is the talent behind the Fox TV show Family Guy and the new movie, Ted. MacFarlane is a big Obama [of course] supporter. Here are his thoughts on projecting his influence in an interview with The Advocate, a LGBT news site:
Advocate: The Parents Television Council voted your episode … “Worst TV Show of the Week.” Do you appreciate that honor?
SM: Oh, yeah. That’s like getting hate mail from Hitler. They’re literally terrible human beings. I’ve read their newsletter, I’ve visited their website, and they’re just rotten to the core.
Advocate: Using the news anchor couple Greg and Terry you’ve also tackled LGBT issues on American Dad, most recently in the adoption episode “Surro-Gate.” Do you think you’re influencing viewer opinion?
SM: I certainly hope that we’re doing a small part to advance progress in that area.
In terms of public policy, the hilarious MacFarlane is my enemy. So if you find yourself in a movie line about to purchase tickets at odds with your beliefs, [think Lennon not Lenin];
All we are saying
Is give MCCD a chance
