FreedomWorks launched a video today suggesting the libertarianish “Atlas Shrugged” film is Ripped Straight From the Headlines.

The FreedomWorks film Saddles up scenes from the Atlas Shrugged movie — “set in a not-so-distant future in which government has taken control of the means of production” — alongside clips from the likes of President Barack Obama and Rep. Bernie Sanders advocating for the limitations of personal freedom. In the quick video, FreedomWorks does a handy job of blending fact and fiction.

Atlas Shrugged will have its nationwide, limited release tomorrow (Tax Day!). Viewers can also take a quiz to try and guess which quotes come from “Atlas Shrugged” and which come from the U.S. government. Watch the video below:
