Hollywood Propaganda is Still Effective

Remember those heroic WWII action films they used to show on Saturday morning TV, like "Bataan," or "A Walk in the Sun," that helped boost morale and motivate Americans to fight?



Well Hollywood can still produce propaganda films that deliver -- only now they are doing it for the other side:



A Balkan Muslim who killed two U.S. Air Force servicemen in March has told a German judge Wednesday that he was motivated after seeing the movie “Redacted,” which was made as a political statement in 2007 by Hollywood director Brian De Palma, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and several high-profile movie industry producers.



Arid Uka told the judge that that he murdered the two Americans in March after he watched the movie’s graphic depiction of U.S. soldiers raping a girl in Iraq, according to a BBC report. “I thought what I saw in that video, these people would do in Afghanistan,” he said, the BBC reports.



“What I did was wrong, but I cannot undo what I did,” Arid Uka told the court in Frankfurt.



Of course, the big names who produced and directed the film just don't understand how that could have happened:



“I honestly had not heard about it,” said one “Redacted” producer, Jason Kliot. “I’m terribly sorry to hear that, but I don’t understand how my movie would impel anyone to commit murder,” he said.



“The real culprit here is the tragedy of war, it is not Brian De Palma’s brilliant film,” he said.



“I don’t see how people would be made to commit acts of violence [after watching “Redacted”], any more than they would for watching Fox News,” Kriot said.




Of course not, but that must have been the point, because the movie never made a dime, it was a labor of leftist love:



The movie was widely praised in the movie industry and by left-of-center cultural groups. The movie and De Palma won awards at the 2007 Venice Film Festival, and it received a “Youth Jury Award” from the 2008 Amnesty International Film festival.



But the movie made little money when it was released in Spain and in fifteen U.S. theaters.






The producers, including Mark Cuban, and the director, should be prosecuted.



For treason.

IAEA FINALLY GETS IT RIGHT: IRAN IS BUILDING NUKES - BUT IS IT TOO LATE?

EXCERPT:

The U.N. nuclear agency said Friday it is "increasingly concerned" about a stream of intelligence suggesting that Iran continues to work secretly on developing a nuclear payload for a missile and other components of a nuclear weapons program.

In its report, the International Atomic Energy Agency said "many member states" are providing evidence for that assessment, describing the information it is receiving as credible, "extensive and comprehensive."

The restricted 9-page report was made available Friday to The Associated Press, shortly after being shared internally with the 35 IAEA member nations and the U.N. Security Council.

WE SHOULD PRE-EMPTIVELY ATTACK IRAN ASAP.

DESTROY ALL THEIR NUKE ASSETS, ALL AIRSHIPS AND AIRFIELDS, ALL NAVY VESSELS AND NAVAL PORTS AND ALL IRG ASSETS.

WILL OBAMA DO IT?

DUNNO... MAYBE - IF HE THINKS IT WILL GET HIM RE-ELECTED!

HOW DO YOU SPELL "OBAMA DECIDES NOT TO SEEK 2ND TERM"? S-O-L-Y-N-D-R-A

THE SCANDALOUS $600 MILLION FEDERAL LOAN TO SOLYNDRA WILL CONVINCE OBAMA TO RETIRE AFTER ONE TERM (RATHER THAN FACE IMPEACHMENT).



IF THAT WON'T CONVINCE HIM THEN PERHAPS FAST AND FURIOUS WILL.



I AM NOW 80% SURE HE WON'T RUN - AND WILL DECIDE/ANNOUNCE IT WHEN HE AND HIS TEAM ARE CONVINCED THEY WILL LOSE THE SENATE IN 2012 AND THEREFORE MIGHT ACTUALLY BE CONVICTED AND REMOVED FROM OFFICE AFTER THE HOUSE IMPEACHES HIM.





MONTY PYTHON'S JOHN CLEESE: LONDON IS NO LONGER AN ENGLISH CITY

DM:

John Cleese has sparked controversy after claiming London no longer feels like an English city.

The comedian made the comments during an Australian TV interview with ABC's Chris Uhlmann for the 7.30 show.

After discussing his comedy career, Cleese was asked about last month's UK riots.

He replied: "I'm not sure what's going on in Britain. Or, let me say this: I don't know what's going on in London because London is no longer an English city.

"That's how they got the Olympics, they said 'we're the most cosmopolitan city on Earth'. But it doesn't feel English.

"I had a Californian friend come over two months ago, walk down the King's Road and said to me, 'Well, where are all the English people?'

"I love having different cultures around but when the parent culture kind of dissipates you are left thinking, 'well, what's going on?'"

WHAT'S GOING ON!? WHAT'S GOING ON!? WHAT'S GOING ON!?

I'LL TELL YOU WHAT'S GOING ON:



50 YEARS OF LEFT-WING MULTICULTURALISM THAT VALUES ALL CULTURES EXCEPT ITS OWN!

IS ISLAMIST TURKEY ATTEMPTING TO INSTIGATE A NATO WAR AGAINST ISRAEL?‏

JPOST:

Referring to one of the five measures that Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said at a press conference Friday that Ankara would take against Israel – take measures for freedom of maritime movement in the eastern Mediterranean Sea – the official said that Israel hoped Turkey would "honor international law" in all matters regarding maritime traffic in the Mediterranean.



The other measures he said Israel would take included downgrading diplomatic ties with Israel; freezing all military agreements; no longer recognizing the Gaza blockade and taking the issue to the International Court of Justice; and supporting "flotilla victims" who will take the matter to court.
IMHO:



THERE'S AN ISLAMIST STRATEGY HERE - THAT DATES BACK TO THE INCEPTION OF THE FLOTILLA AND THE MAVI MARMARA'S PARTICIPATION.



NOW, TURKEY WILL ATTEMPT TO BREACH LEGAL BLOCKADE AND INSTIGATE AN IDF ATTACK/BOARDING/SEIZURE OF A TURKISH NAVAL VESSEL AND THEN DEMAND NATO DEFEND TURKEY AND ATTACK ISRAEL.



TURKEY DOESN'T BELONG IN NATO, ANYMORE.



THEY ARE CLOSER TO IRAN.



THEY HATE ISRAEL.
