My presentation in the film turned out to be even less than a cameo appearance, as they only showed me for a second in the episode, and only to answer a question (about "the secessionist movement most likely to secede") with the answer of "Texas". No mention of Independent Long Island (ILI) at all. No showing of the ILI flag, even though they taped that stuff.
The rest of the episode was little more than a glorification of the Second Amendment (guns, and guns, and guns.., which will never stop a US tank, battalion, missile or jet), which is still part of the US Constitution after all, and instead of speaking of the many secessionist movements throughout the US, they attempted to answer the very pertinent question, "Which state has the best grilled beef?"
Of course they totally trivialised the issue of secession/independence, which was to be almost expected, but they also completely wasted my time, and some really good footage.
Never again will I devote serious time with the media about Independent Long Island. Never again.
