Swanson's disgust at a movie about an icon of rebellion against a tyrannical government was only outmatched by his sheer outrage at the film's protagonist being a woman.
According to Swanson, that the fictional setting's main problem was a lack of male leadership.
"Think about the men," said Swanson. "They were tyrants, they were wimpy, they were led around by the nose by women. Peeta is a puppy dog, he was cute, he was nice, he was fluffy and he did everything that his mistress told him to do. He was the puppy dog."
Swanson has a very extensive history of lashing out at women's rights. Swanson previously came to this column's attention for attacking Hillary Clinton for trying to "obliterate" society by enabling women to be self-sufficient.
Also, in two highly comical instances that were tragically overlooked by this column when they occurred, Swanson blamed a series of Colorado forest fires on women wearing hats, and later complained after seeing cleavage on a TV during an airline flight that he was being oppressed.
"Girls, if society is so broken down and there are no fathers left, probably no sheriffs with courage and guts to defend the people from tyrants, what do you get when you don’t have any men?" he continued. "I guess you get Katniss, and Katniss is going to save society."
Swanson also noted it was "interesting" that many of a string of popular movies were "about witches, about vampires, and about little girl anarchists."
Apparently, the idea that people would have no interest in a movie about a woman who stays at home and never thinks for herself is too much for him to handle.
