The faith-based film ‘Sound of Freedom’ has outperformed Disney’s $300 million-budget film “Indiana Jones” at the box office. Yet, the far-left mainstream media, rather than addressing the film’s central issue of child sex trafficking, is painting the movie and its supporters with a broad stroke of QAnon conspiracy.
Sex trafficking, a horrifying reality affecting millions of children worldwide annually, has been the focal point of ‘Sound of Freedom.’ The film was designed to shed light on this global crisis and bring it to the forefront of public consciousness.
According to the U.S. State Department, the global estimate for victims of trafficking stands at approximately 27.6 million. Many of these are children, and many of them are continuing to be exploited in the U.S., not just through physical violence but also by compelling them to perform labor or engage in commercial sex.
“In the United States, traffickers compel victims to engage in commercial sex and to work in both legal and illicit industries and sectors, including in hospitality, traveling sales crews, agriculture, janitorial services, construction, landscaping, restaurants, factories, care for persons with disabilities, salon services, massage parlors, retail services, fairs and carnivals, peddling and begging, drug smuggling and distribution, religious institutions, child care, and domestic work,” the agency stated.
“Human traffickers prey on people of all ages, backgrounds, and nationalities, exploiting them for their own profit,” it added.
However, major media outlets like CNN are downplaying the movie and associating its narrative with “QAnon conspiracy theories.”
In a recent CNN interview, Mike Rothschild joined Abby Phillip to criticize the film. Abby kicked off the discussion by bringing up the controversial themes in the movie, like a “real wild plot that involves drinking the blood of children and things like that.”
Rothschild responded, pointing to Jim Caviezel, the film’s leading actor, accusing him of using the film as a platform to propagate QAnon beliefs.
It seems Rothschild and Phillip are unaware that at least 400 African children have been abducted and trafficked to the UK for blood rituals, according to BBC.
According to Rothschild, the movie is playing into the hands of QAnon believers by blending real-world horrors like child trafficking with conspiracy-driven narratives. He suggests that the film feeds into a sense of “moral panic” and uses “bogus statistics” to stir fear among the audience.
Phillip pointed out that ‘Sound of Freedom’ indeed touches on the real issue of sex trafficking. Rothschild acknowledged this but maintained that the film’s message feeds into QAnon conspiracy theories.
“The most durable and the most believable conspiracy theories are not entirely false. There’s something in them that is true and the rest of it is false,” Rothschild claimed.
“We know trafficking is real. We know it has real victims. No one is denying that. But these films are created out of moral panics. They’re created out of bogus statistics. They’re created out of fear,” Rothschild added.
Rothschild believes that while child sex trafficking is a severe global issue, the specific notion of a pervasive network of high-level elites involved in such activities is largely unfounded.
“With something like Sound of Freedom, it specifically is looking at QAnon concepts of these child trafficking rings that are run by the high-level elites,” he added.
