I generally overlooked this before. Upon closer examination, I'm glad I looked closer.
The Invaders was a 67-68 series on ABC starring Roy Thinnes as architect David Vincent. He's driving from a commission and it's late so he looks for a place to get sack time. The diner he heard about is deserted but he pulls over and naps. He is awakened by a strange hum and glow. Before him he sees a spacecraft landing.
The socalled authorities of course think he's nuts when he tells them about it. The series goes on as Vincent tries to expose the invasion and its purpose. The invaders intend to exterminate mankind and take the planet for themselves.
Far as the show goes, it's pretty good science fiction/fantasy. The guest stars are among Hollywood's best and Roy Thinnes, the star, is very intense as Vincent. The special effects are actually interesting as far as how the invaders are dispatched. As they die, they glow red and poof, disappear, leaving what looks like some kind of carbon imprint. So, there is no trace, thus eliminating proof -s-. Remember this came out in '67, so don't expect top notch stuff. It's at least as good as Star Trek was lol.
As for the message, well for me that's the interesting part. It's debated but there is a strong emphasis on the commie menace so prevalent at the time. There is the atmosphere of paranoia and the old saying that is not really paranoia if they are really after you.
The invaders seem to have no emotion. Their race advances in a self-sacrificing way, easily destroying themselves and equipment when foiled. Sounds familiar huh?
I for one actually see commies/collectivists as very passionate about their beliefs and goals. A particular Hollywood actor comes to mind who said he's willing to die for his liberal (collectivist) beliefs. Yet they do lack spirit. There ways are steeped in lies, which do not make up for truth such as we who are restoring the Republic.
As for The Invaders being a relic of the Cold War, it's not. It's thought provoking and reminds me of a salient fact: Communism is far from being dead.
Soul destroying collectivism is very much alive and rotting the Republic. Look at the red diaper baby in the Oval office and those birds of a feather flocking round him. Gaze upon those who would disarm us and burden us with ridiculous regulations bent upon making us a collective slag heap. There are plenty of communist countries. And don't count out Russia. If it quaks and waddles like a duck, well what do you think?
Yep the invaders are here. And I'm sure I'm looked at as an alarmist or nutcase etc. Part of the Alinskyan method re side tracking. I will not be quiet. And I will match them blow for blow. I will also be proactive. I will never rest til the invaders are stopped and excised/exposed.
How's that for commitment, spirit and passion?
