After 9/11, while
George W. Bush was US President,
almost no movies were made
portraying America and its soldiers in a good light.
Almost no movies were made
portraying the great dramatic story of the age - the War on Islamism.
The Iraq War started in 2003,
not a single pro-Iraq War movie
was made before Bush left office in Jan 2009.
There was an endless stream of
crap anti-war movies.
One of the few benefits of Obama's election in 2008
was that finally Hollywood
made some pro-war movies.
There was a planned movie of the
The Iraqi resistance kill a 4 year old child
because her mother is an interpreter
for US media.
Could be the first movie to actually depict the Iraqi resistance
that has killed thousands of brave American troops.
"I am baffled to understand why the things I saw happening in Iraq are not being reported",
He is a fan of
"What he is doing is something the American media and maybe the world media isn't doing,
and that's telling the truth about what's happening in the war in Iraq."
American agents in Paris fight Islamic terrorists attached
to an East Asian (apparently non-Muslim) crime ring.
The first movie since 9/11 to
have fictional Islamist bad guys attack a western city?
Or is it, as it sounds, much more confused?
It's also a humorous buddy movie (groan).
Whereas the jihad isn't funny at all.
Vince Flynn interview:
"Look at Hollywood. They all detest President Bush because their friends will think they are smarter by hating him. ... But instead, they make these movies the American people don't want to see, because deep down inside, the American public does not want to see a movie that bashes America. ...
People want a guy like Mitch Rapp
looking out for them. People want to believe there are guys like this out there protecting us.
Hollywood is now saying people don't want to watch movies about war. No, Americans don't want to watch [bad] anti-American movies about war. Americans would love to watch a great movie where Mitch Rapp is meting out punishment to these crazy zealots, but I don't know if Hollywood has the guts to do it."
This reads like a
parody of a loony left screenplay.
A gay American soldier fighting in Iraq (Jesus wept)
falls in love with a gay Iraqi jihadist
(Jesus shook his head, gave up and went home).
They have a nice gay love affair.
And who are the gay heroes angry with?
The hate-filled Islamic imams, Islamists and jihadists
who persecute, torture and execute homosexuals
all across the Islamic world
from Morocco to Indonesia?
Don't be silly.
They plot to kill George W. Bush, of course.
Truly, truly pathetic.
The Wachowski brothers
wrote the screenplay for the cowardly
V for Vendetta.
Larry Wachowski is transgender,
which probably means (because humans are illogical) that he hates Republicans
more than he hates jihadists (if he even thinks about the latter at all).
"Imagine if someone dared to make a sympathetic movie about people plotting to kill Obama."
"they're not in any way brave by taking shots at those who will never fight back."
"I hate to break it to ya, but they'll be Bush-bashing films coming for decades to come.
The Left wants to dominate the historical narrative on these subjects. They're not giving it up any time soon"
excuses the Iraqi resistance,
supports vandalising allied military planes at Shannon,
and is a member of the left-Islamist
Ken Loach, 19 Mar 2011, explains that Route Irish will present the bog-standard Hollywood view of the Iraq war:
"We want to show that the whole purpose of the war was to get a pro-western government in there to benefit big business."
Can we get a film that shows an alternative view of the Iraq war?
Movies about the War on Islamism in general:
The Ghost Writer (2010) by Roman Polanski.
The bad guy is a British Prime Minister who cooperated with the CIA in abducting jihadis.
Why this makes him bad, who knows.
You would have to ask Roman Polanski.
"Sounds as though Ghost Writer is the perfect storm of everything so laughably and maddeningly depraved about the left-wing film industry today. It takes the wrong side in a righteous war - a war we're presently fighting, by the way - and its creator is a fugitive whose anal rape of a thirteen year-old girl
(he drugged) hasn't dented his celebrity in the least. No shortage of "stars" lining up to work with him!"
John Nolte's review, 5 Mar 2010.
As the Prime Minister, "Adam Lang", is threatened with arrest by the "World Court",
"the narrative begins to takes on two fatal problems. The first is that to those of us who think differently than the left ... Brosnan's Lang did nothing wrong. And so you sit there wondering what all the hullaballoo's about."
Looks like an anti-American "message movie".
Mark Tapson, 22 Dec 2010:
"The notion that an FBI agent, in this era of political correctness and hypersensitivity to Muslim hair-trigger offense, would come barreling into a mosque full of worshipers and openly insult their religion is so divorced from reality that it makes the conspiracy theory of Mossad-trained sharks seem like the pinnacle of rationality. This scene bears no relation to the obsequious manner in which our law enforcement have been instructed to tiptoe around the Muslim-American community".
A devout young Christian woman meets a young Muslim man.
She won't sleep with him,
because she is "saving herself for Christ".
He is a jihadi,
and he convinces her to slaughter innocents in a jihad attack on the Paris metro,
"because she thinks planting bombs will bring her closer to God".
says this sounds like unbelievable idiocy:
"does French director Bruno Dumont think that piety is piety, and that a girl who is "saving herself for Christ" one minute might just as well starting setting off bombs to bring herself "closer to God" the next? After all, all religions have their "extremists," right?"
Whitewash of the life of Mohammed planned:
The Messenger of Peace.
One of those films where once you hear the title,
you know there's no point seeing the film.
"We will probably see the image of Muhammad that most Muslims were spoon-fed in their religious education."
There are repeated stories
that the Islamic fascist
plans to help make a movie in English about the life of Mohammed,
in order to "educate" the filthy kuffar.
It seems unlikely this movie will ever emerge.
And if it does, no Westerner will watch it.
David Horowitz, 30 Oct 2012, points out that this leftist claptrap is hardly "untold".
"Even the title of Stone’s rant is a lie, since his narratives of the Bolshevik Revolution (idealists whose noble vision was thwarted by capitalist pigs), World War II (Stalin won it) and the Cold War (launched by American imperialists but ended by peace-loving Mikhail Gorbachev) are a twice-told story: the first time by Kremlin propagandists and their minions, the second by leftwing diehards who can’t handle the truth".
A smear job on Palin by British Palin-hater (and hater of American troops)
Nick Broomfield writes about making the documentary, 10 Dec 2011. His contempt for Palin seeps through every word.
His team flies to America to do the smear job.
One suffers a rectal search.
Another is forced to give urine for a pregnancy test.
Both are deported.
That's funny, but unfortunately it doesn't stop the hit job.
He sneers at everything in Palin's home town
- and at the same time complains about his frosty reception!
"Wasilla holds the state record for child abuse, incest and suicide for young gay men
We go to a bar .. It is full of bearded, beer-guzzling rednecks. All heads turn as we walk in. Silence descends.
.. It is like Deliverance on ice. We don't go back."
Actually, I bet the locals are friendly to people who don't hate them!
Absurdly, he blames Palin for the
Oddly enough, she decides not to give an interview to someone who promotes this blood libel.
Some good comments on this obnoxious article, including:
"I'm no fan of Palin's, but was your documentary also meant to be one long, predictable, superficial stereotype, like this article? If so, I wouldn't bother."
is a classic anti-communist story.
has looked into his heart and realised that if Orwell was alive today
he would not oppose commies.
Instead, Orwell would hate the free market and free trade. Of course.
"we are not making a film about Communism and Stalinism because if Orwell was writing the story today, he would be talking about other relevant topics like globalization and corporate greed".
Of course he would.
In fact, Animal Farm actually means the opposite
of what it means.
to be directed by Len Wiseman.
Terrorists attack the president's motorcade.
With Obama now in office, will the Americans be the good guys?
Will the terrorists be Islamic?
to be directed by Spike Lee,
who made a major movie
glorifying the Muslim racist fanatic
This is about a race to thwart two terrorist attacks on American soil.
Will the terrorists be Islamic?
has a scene featuring (or similar to)
the London 7/7 bombings.
Red Dawn (2012).
The US is faced with communist invasion from North Korea.
Which would normally be a good sign, except they make a good point:
That the bad guys were meant to be China, but it was changed to avoid offending the Chinese market.
Which hardly makes this a proud moment in right-wing movie history!
More worringly, they also say of the hero:
"Hemsworth, a former marine, draws a moral equivalence between the Wolverines and insurgents in Iraq."
says he is inspired by both jihadis and the Vietcong!
What kind of right-wing movie is this?
American Assassin (2017).
Shows a jihad attack on a beach in Spain.
Like the jihad attack on the beach in Tunisia in 2015.
It is clearly a jihad attack.
The hero is later shown getting revenge on the jihadis.
Later in the film, there are more bad guys - a faction of the Iranian regime (other Iranian regime people are shown as good guys)
and a rogue American terrorist killing for incoherent personal reasons.
So a bit of a mixed bag - bad guy wise.
Who I block on Twitter:
I will debate almost anyone.
I love ideas.
I will not debate (and will block) people who:
(a) target my job,
(b) target my appearance, or:
(c) libel me.
Also, since 2016, abusive reporting has become a thing.
I was targeted with abusive reporting by
an Israel-hater pretending to be "Jewish".
So I now also block:
(d) any account that even hints that it reports its enemies,
(e) any Israel-hater that claims to be Jewish.
It is just self-defence.
