Steal this movie pitch

Roissy | "Suck it up"

It’s been quipped that liberals love humanity but hate humans, while conservatives love humans but hate humanity. I find there to be a lot of truth to this statement. Now, an illuminating quote from a story about Algore’s alleged sexual assault on a masseuse adds credence to the quip’s accuracy:
Finally she got away. Later, she talked to friends, liberals like herself, who advised against telling police. One asked her “to just suck it up; otherwise, the world’s going to be destroyed from global warming.”
Reminds me of Robert Siegel's Big Fan, in which a Giants fan gets beaten by his favorite player and is forced to choose between justice for himself and ruining the season of the team he stakes his personal identity on. In fact it's so similar of a premise that this is begging to be re-written with a politician instead of a wide receiver and a true believer intern instead of a football fan whose hobby is writing rants to read on a late night sports talk radio show.
