Stupidest Protest Ever
Blind people protesting Blindness.
Blindness is a metaphor in the movie… as it has been forever.
The idea that sighted people in their 20s, 30s and older suddenly becoming blind, surrounded by others who are suddenly blind, would not be disoriented and find it hard to deal with a massive new challenge is pretty absurd on its face.
To quote Marc Maurer, president of the Baltimore-based National Federation of the Blind, who said to the AP, “The movie portrays blind people as monsters, and I believe it to be a lie. Blindness doesn’t turn decent people into monsters.
