Another Movie I Refuse To See

Below is a link to an article written by Debbie Schlussel about the movie "The War Within." Now, since I have not seen it, I can't write anything about it. But after reading Schlussel's article - she DID see the movie - I know I don't want to see it, and I know I would be furious if I did.

Here's the article.

Five minutes into watching Mark Cuban's reality show it was obvious that the guy was just another freak with money and a personality disorder.

My empathy and sympathy supply has been tapped into so often lately that I have none to spare and absolutely none to waste on terrorist scum.

What the article did do, was to tap into the rage that comes to the surface when I read stories that place a sympathetic and understanding slant on the jihad/Muslim/terrorist point of view.

Then there is the fact that the way life works sometimes the movie may be critically acclaimed and a hit with movie goers, it might start getting oscar buzz, start making some big, big money; and then some big, fat, stinking, white guy will go onstage and give an ugly political speech to the roar of the crowd. I hate when that happens.

willow - Very well put. It's amazing how many people are sympathetic to terrorists. I, for one, still hate them. No movie/speech/etc. is going to change that. Unfortunately, other more feeble-minded people are more easily swayed.

America, as a whole, is much better off when we remember who our enemies are instead of making excuses for them. I may be old fashioned, but I am much more likely to cheer when terrorists are destroyed by our brave troops than when assholes in Hollywood and elsewhere glorify them in stupid propagandistic films.

And because terrorists are killing people worldwide, it would be beneficial for the world to remember who the real villains are. Movies that portray "terrorist scum" as downtrodden, victimized heroes are doing the world immense harm and absolutely no good.

drunkbh - There's certainly no shortage of crap coming out of Hollywood.

Morb, that article combined with my rage which was fueled by willow's and your own comments have made me decide on a post for my site. I have had it for while but haven't posted it, because it takes a certain sense of humor to appreciate. It's time for a muslim pop quiz. Is it ok to refer to your site as my inspiration for my next post.

morbid misanthrope said...

badgerbob - Feel free to refer to my site. I look forward to reading the Muslim Pop Quiz.

I can see the muslim point w/e its your religion (enjoy your psychological disorder). The jihad which is war against the infidels FINE! i mean everyone should reserve the right to fuck someone up.

However terrorism is just a coward, and pathetic way to get people to listen, and follow you.

viczilla - The problem with the whole killing infidels thing, is that the Muslim definition of infidel - contrary to what you may hear on the news or in movies - is a non-Muslim person.

This gives religious extremists an excuse to blow up and behead innocent people in the name of their religion.

Terrorism isn't just about getting America out of the Middle East, or taking revenge on Western countries that have supposedly wronged Islamic nations; it's about total religious fascism.

Many terrorists have made it abundantly clear that terrorism will continue until every country in the world is under Sharia law. Which, if you weren't aware, is the law that makes it perfectly fine to kill non-Muslims, make slaves out of non-Muslims, stone people to death for minor crimes, etc.

These terrorists are part of a fascist religious movement that seeks to plunge the entire world back into the 14th century. These terrorists are also extremely anti-Semetic and will not be placated until Israel is no longer on the map. The last group to so openly desire the genocide of the Jewish people were the Nazis, and I don't recall many people putting up with that shit.

There are a million reasons why these Islamic terrorists aren't just people reserving the right to fuck people up. I could write more and more about this, but instead I suggest you read the following books for a better perspective on Islam, and Islamic terrorists:

"Islam Unveiled" and "The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)" by Robert Spencer.

For every religion there are people who will take it too far. Thats why i dont like religion

morbid misanthrope said...

viczilla - I'm not what you would call a fan of religion either. And while pretty much every religion is fucked up in some way, at least the Buddhists, Christians, Scientologists, Christian Scientists, Mormons, Hindus, etc. aren't out there beheading people simply for being of another faith.

Well, bombers have feelings to and maybe if we all just reflected for a moment and . . . ah screw it, Cuban's a nutjob.

morbid misanthrope said...

armaedes - He's one of many, many nutjobs out there.

Victor said...

Not in modern times no they arent.

morbid misanthrope said...

Not in modern times, correct. Yet the Muslims are still killing people like they did centuries ago. Other religions have modernized and adapted to the changing society while Islam seeks to keep things as backasswards and violent as they were hundreds of years ago.

Victor said...

Yeah well most of those mofos are still living in caves!

morbid misanthrope said...

According to the Koran, anything not of Muslim creation is to be disregarded and looked down upon. Many people choose to live "in caves" or without modern commodities because they are not of Muslim invention. That's one reason they hate Western civilization so much.

j holden - Thanks. I don't mind that you linked to my blog on your site, however, I'm sure some of your more discerning readers will because they aren't used to being subjected to vulgar, low-quality posts.
