Not Soon Enough

Liberals across the land are yelling about United 93
When the trailer played before "Inside Man" last week at the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, audience members began calling out, "Too soon!" In New York City, where 9/11 remains an open wound, the response was even more dramatic. The AMC Loews theater on Manhattan's Upper West Side took the rare step of pulling the trailer from its screens after several complaints. "One lady was crying," says one of the theater's managers, Kevin Adjodha. "She was saying we shouldn't have [played the trailer]. That this was wrong ... I don't think people are ready for this."

Wow who would ever guess that people in those place would be against seeing a film that tells the truth about 9/11.
One of the great lines from the Newsweek story about this is:

We're about to find out. "United 93" is the first feature film to deal explicitly with the events of September 11, 2001, and is certain to ignite an emotional debate before and after it opens on April 28. Is it too soon? Should the film have been made at all? More to the point, will anyone want to see it?
Wait, what about the greatest documentary ever made? Wasn't Fatboy's POS the first, and only movie that would show the truth about 9/11?
Or am I confusing it with what I'm sure will be a fair and balance POG from Oliver "stop attacking ME. I'm smarter then you" Stone?

In response to the audiences in Hollywierd, NO it isn't too soon. We should have had movies reminding us what happened that day already in the movie theaters. just like we should have seen video of the WTC buildings being hit every day on the national news.

More Links

Here are a couple more stories from the good people over at Iran Press News.

This piece from Monday shows the great human rights beacon that Islam is to the world.
I wonder if Not-So-Little Mickey Moore will include this story in his movie about how Iran is a free nation, because you know that the fat POS is thinking about making such a movie.

Next is another piece about the Greater Tehran bus drivers union and what is happening to it as the government cracks down on workers who just want some freedom.

Remember the best Iraqi exit strategy is to take a right through Iran.

Fascism On The March

Omar over at Iraq The Model, has a scary post about the lack of newspapers in Iraq right now.

Me: who threatened them?
Papers guy: the death notes were signed by the mujahideen; they said that they will kill anyone who continues to print, distribute or sell newspapers.
He then showed me one of those notes; the ban includes virtually every paper but basically "papers that promote Safawi [Persian] Shiasm, blasphemous secular ideas and democracy…".I had a hard time trying to swallow what I read, why newspapers? What's going to be next? Will they try to stitch up our mouths and chop our tongues off?!
Those pen-hating cowards are afraid of the words written in our newspapers and they tried to paint their new anti-free speech campaign with a sectarian dye to make it look as if they were only after Shia and secular papers but in fact they are against everything that does not approve and praise their sick mentality.
Yes, I may not agree with what many of those newspapers do, and a few of them even sound offensive or disgusting to me for one reason or another but I cannot accept seeing them silenced in such a way and I am for their right to speak freely exactly the same way I want this right for myself.
Strange though that no one uttered a word about it as far as I know, even the papers themselves mentioned nothing about this threat on their websites and neither did any of the other local media outlets…maybe there has been a threat against that as well?
I don't know right now but I'll try to find out.This is one more time that makes me feel happy we have the internet and the means to use it.

Now I know that most of my friends and readers will know how I feel about fishwraps in general, but when they are the primary form of information distribution, it is scary to think that they are being stopped.

Meanwhile over the border in Iran:
The inhumane Islamic regime not only has not come to the aid and assistance of the victims of the Friday, March 31st earthquake in the province of Lorestan, it has also viciously attacked and beaten a number of those who complained and protested the lack of relief.

The regime-run news agency IRNA reported: "A group of the earthquake victims gathered, on Saturday afternoon, in front of one of the regime's relief centers protesting the lack of relief and demanding assistance such as food, tents and medical care for their families."

Mehdi Hashemi, a deputy of the Ministry of Interior of the Islamic regime who traveled to Boroujerd, one of the cities hardest hit in the earthquake, admitted that the protestors had in fact been arrested. He called the hungry and afflicted victims of the earthquake “agitators and hoodlums” and said: "those who were selfish and wanted to disrupt the order were arrested. We will make full use of all security and disciplinary forces including the revolutionary guards, the Basij and the army in order quash any unrest."

Well it must be nice to still think that Islam is the religion of Peace.


I don't know what to make of this, but all I can say is ouch.

The regime-run FARS news agency quoting the Swiss newspaper, Der Bund reported that the Islamic regime has withdrawn 700 tons of it's gold reserves worth 6 billion Swiss Francs as well as 25 billion Swiss Francs in foreign exchange (equal to $30 billion) from financial institutions in the west.

What in Allah's name are they going to do with all that gold.

Have they decided to try and flood the world market with gold to screw with the capitalist west? Or does someone think that they are going to need gold to buy uranium after Israel, India and the US blow the snot out of their piss-ant little fascist dictatorship.

More Proof That Liberals Are Stupid.

Rick Moran over at Blogs4Bauer had this post on Sunday and it got me thinking.

Ways that Jack Bauer is not a Democrat:

Dems think that Abu Ghraib is the center of evil in the world.
Jack racks up kills because he can.

Dems want no preemptive actions.
Jack eats preemption for breakfast, lunch and diner.

This is a typical Dem daugher, here is Jack's daugher.

Okay there is something that Jack has in common with the Dems;
He also has a thing for annoying large nosed women.

Say It Isn't So, Oliver.

Supersmartie Oliver Stone says that journalists are attacking "intelligent stars...(who) question their leaders."
Yea right. Intelligent stars like Ed Asner, Alec Baldwin, George Clooney, Margaret Cho, Cher, etc., etc., etc.
Want proof, check out this site. Great puns and a who's who of self declared intellectuals.
