Pool’s Thursday livestream to his 1.34 million subscribers included the film’s director, Robert Davi, Breitbart News Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow, and journalist Lauren Southern.
The panel’s discussion of the film’s cultural impact and competition with current-day corporate wokeism prevailing in the entertainment industry came alongside the controversial primetime speech delivered by Joe Biden Thursday evening.
When Pool introduced the film into the discussion, he repeated one of Andrew Breitbart’s most remembered comments, “Politics is downstream from culture.” Pool said, “Culture influences. Culture inspires, and culture decides whether or not a law truly stands on the books.”
In expressing his excitement about the upcoming release of the movie, Pool said that “building culture is the most important thing we can do.”
Southern added that the most important thing that cultural influencers can do currently is to support “art that isn’t communist.”
In reviewing Pool’s first musical release, “Only Ever Wanted,” Breitbart described the YouTuber, whose videos have almost a half-billion views, as a performer who embraces “an anti-establishment and anti-woke worldview that doesn’t adhere to conventional partisan politics.”
During a panel discussion hosted last week by Truth Social, Breitbart senior contributor Peter Schweizer said the movie would have likely never been made by the Hollywood entertainment establishment “because the truth seems too unbelievable.”
Breitbart’s production of the film was a crowdfunded project that was largely inspired by Schweizer’s investigative journalism into the corruption surrounding the Biden family and Hunter Biden’s infamous abandoned laptop.
Schweizer described the movie as an “entertaining shorthand version” of his recent best-selling book “Red-Handed: How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win.”
He added that if someone went to a Los Angeles producer and proposed a film about a vice president’s son who takes tens of millions of dollars from the Chinese, is a coke addict, and then leaves his laptop at a repair store, all to be followed by a corporate media cover-up, “the producers would just laugh you out of the room.”
My Son Hunter will be available for downloading and streaming on September 7.
