Just because the Modern American Left glorifies domestic terrorists doesn’t mean they are in anyway encouraging it. Just rewarding it, which is completely different.
Redford makes a couple of pretty good movies once upon a time and then gets away with all kinds of left wing crap for the rest of his life. I don’t go watch movies like this one.
I’ve basically given up on Hollywood generate entertainment over the last decade or two.
I also don’t think Redford gets away with this because he made some good movies a long time ago, I think he does this so he doesn’t have to make the effort to make good movies — just toe the MAL line and you’re good. It’s the same way so many tranzi “comics” have jokes that are just “Conservatives, you know?”.
As always, we need to define the terms. All Redford movies were, are and will be “good” in the eyes of the media as long as he moves the narrative forward.
