Posted on 09/12/2006 5:20:15 AM PDT by PJ-Comix
They just can't get over it. The DUmmies are STILL crybabying over their failure to prevent the airing of "The Path to 9/11." Their pouting has taken the form of self-pitying despair as you can see in this DUmmie THREAD titled, "I hate to say this.... But we are truly powerless in this country...." Well, I hate to say this, DUmmie, you you're right. Everything the DUmmies attempt seem to blow up in their faces including their failure to keep this movie from airing. Most likely their attempts boomeranged on them. As Rush Limbaugh said yesterday, Robert Iger of ABC was on the verge of pulling this movie but the threats made by the Left and the Democrats to pull ABC's broadcasting license caused him to react angrily against this blatant pressure. Iger knew that pulling the movie after these public threats would make both him and ABC look weak so he then had no choice but to go ahead with airing the movie. Had the Left been more diplomatic in their efforts to remove "The Path To 9/11" from the air, it might have been a different story. However, as we have seen, the Left has been acting like thugs in recent years so any diplomatic niceties are now beyond them. So let us now watch the DUmmies wallow in their own self-pitying powerlessness in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that the DUmmie "Google Bomb" plot against this movie also failed, is in the [brackets]:
I hate to say this.... But we are truly powerless in this country....
[Truly powerless DUmmies are FUn to watch!]
You, me, all of us on the left or center left or for that matter, the center matter, not one bit to the opinion makers in this country of "ours"....
[You matter not one tiny bit my insignificant little DUmmie ants.]
ABC/Disney and all the rest of corporate America could care less what we think...
[Paying attention to bizarre paranoid thoughts are not exactly at the top of their agenda.]
We raised legitimate concerns about how a fictional account of a recent event would effect those watching and nothing happened...
[Enjoy your Freudenschade victory champagne.]
The right squawked about the Ronald Reagen biopic, and they yanked it faster than you can say quick draw McDraw....
[Because the right counts. You don't, little DUmmie ant.]
Over the years, American corporations have seen they are pretty much free as they continue to tramp on the rights of individuals, do what ever they want to the environment and behave in such outrageously ethically challenged matters without any real governor on their actions...
[I enjoy tramping on my little DUmmie ants just to stir them up for FUn viewing.]
This 9/11 movie is only the beginning of what is going to happen over the next two months as we watch the GOP and the corporate interests systematically destroy what is left of American Democracy...
[Getting your Election Day excuses lined up already, eh?]
I mourn for my county...
[I lsugh at my DUmmies... And now to hear from the rest of my pet DUmmie ants...]
Depends on how much they edited the piece of $hit.....
[Seeing as to how you posted this at 9:00 PM EDT on Sunday, I can now tell you that LESS than a minute was edited out. It was like the final touchup at a barbershop with a little final snipping here and there which does not change the overall general appearance a bit.]
There were NO EDITS! Not from what we saw. The entire show focused on the lost attempts to capture Bin Laden, all during the Clinton Administration. Hopefully, tomorrow will focus on the failed Bush Administration, but I'm not holding my breath.
[And don't hold your breath to watch Bush read "My Pet Goat" since it wasn't included in Part 2. However, to make you feel better, I'll read to you "My Pet DUmmie Ant."]
I am not a defeatist person, but I share your grief at the current state of affairs in our country. It just all seems to be going in the wrong, direction, the fights seem futile...I thought that the pendulum swung, hit the right hand barrier and was heading back, but not enough of our public either thinks (or is capable of thinking) or cares.
[But...but what happened to all those November victory celebrations you had just a few weeks ago?]
The pendulem can't swing back without a media. That is the key. We have to develop our own media like the right has done, in order to facilitate a progressive politcal movement.
[You already have the powerful Err America and the mighty benburch radio empire...until it was taken out by a LIGHTNING BOLT.]
The pendulum needs a little oil. The law books need dusting off. The court room needs to be cleaned. The time will come when the media will be unmuzzled. The prison cells are ready.
[The roving Chekha squads are getting warmed up in anticipation of the liquidations.]
Scew ABC, watch CBS
[I did briefly last night but Katie Couric's smeary makeup and fish lips were too hard to take for more than a couple of minutes. Oh, then there is the fact that there is almost no news on that "news show."]
All it would take it is one Democratic billionaire with the willpower to put "Air America Radio" on FM in every big city in the US. Attention: if there is a millionaire or a billionaire reading this, please contact Sheldon Drobny about investing in his new company "Nova M Radio" to buy radio stations to play "Air America."
[Attention: If there is a millionaire or billionaire reading this, please contact Sheldon Drobny about flushing your money down his toilet known as "Nova M Radio."]
Hit me today...and was thinking what you say. Hope it's just a "dark mood that we are in...just a slump.
[More like a downward slope leading to the edge of a cliff by the bottomless pit.]
Some of us ..having gone through so many years of this are ready to "BAIL." And that's many of us who are "Actively INVOLVED" in our Party after "Selection 2000" who are getting sick of this shit where our party asks us to stand up and then seems to get "very quiet." I am hoping good stuff is going on "behind the scenes" on this...and that we are just "impatient." I'll give them through this next Mid-Term Election. :shrug;
[Yeah. Have no fear. Howard Dean is handling the good stuff behind the scenes. YEEEEEEHAAAAWWW!!!!]
I personally don't trust Clinton to do the right thing and file the lawsuit. I fear we're all in for a big letdown. OTOH, Sandy Berger, Madeleine Albright and others may just file their own.
[Sandy Berger filed his lawsuit away in his socks next to the National Archives documents also stuffed in there.]
I don't know what to think...I'll have a little hope more...but Shit this is not looking good. We lay our butts on the line for these people time after time...and what do we get. I will remain hopeful for another few days...hoping for a lawsuit. It's all I can do...but I'm not so hopeful either...that we weren't "used" once again. I hope to be proved very wrong...
[Too bad but you're right.]
Don't look for heroics from HRC on this one. She's too close to the warmongers and PNACers for my comfort and at this point I wouldn't trust her with a sharpened pencil.
[Please keep your sharpened pencil away from Hillary's triangulation.]
There must be something we can do to fix the current situation. I'm just not savvy enough to know just what it is.
[Have you tried DUACing yet? DUAC! DUAC!]
I will try to remain hopeful that a Law Suit by Clinton Folks is imminent. I hope to hell that my "Dark View" is very, very WRONG! Believe me on this...We need to wait...a little...but not too long given that Dems will be voting in ..what is it? 60 Days?
[61 days. This year the voting days are divided up according to parties. Republicans on Tuesday and Democrats on Wednesday.]
If we don't "squeek by a majority" in the House we are doomed...we need to work our butts off for that. But, another failed election with Voter Disenfranchisement though Machines and throwing folks off the polls through fraud, will be the FINAL WAKE UP CALL. We don't have much time left ...and we must hope that we can change Congress to even have a "teeny voice" in the CHANGE that we Dems must do to correct all the dismantling of our DEMOCRACY/CONSTITUTION that BUSH CRIME FAMILY has done. But..it's not looking like a "landslide here" given that Clinton couldn't stop 9/11 Fakeumentary. It's not looking good...but we must have hope...or at least this DU'er is trying to have HOPE!!! Not easy, though.
[We are doomed, DOOMED I tell ya! Maybe we can pull it off in November? Pretty please! Nope. We're DOOMED!!!]
Winning in '06 is clearly our most important goal, but to have that happen, we'd better figure out how to get our voices heard.
[Hey, don't you appreciate all my efforts to get your voices heard here on the DUmmie FUnnies?]
Call me nuts but I am overcome with confidence lately. We're gonna take this sucker back. The fascists will be gone and we can kick out the remnants of the DLC stain, in order to turn us back into a winning party again.
[Okay, I'll call you nuts.]
Sorry, Carl - that's how I felt in 2004. False hope -- And that got me nowhere. We need to be reality-based and make a plan to combat them. Wishing goes nowhere fast.
[So how did all that wishing for your own alternate reality work out for you?]
Right now in my Queens NY neighborhood there is what amounts to a Bund Rally going on ie: A 911 Memorial.Complete with marching band, Kate Smith's song you know the one and the whole damn obnoxious panoply of jingoistic uber shit. So no I have very little hope that its going to get any better anytime soon.
[Another quote from the "reality based community" comparing a 911 Memorial to a Bund rally.]
I wanted desperately to pay the tribute to the victims of 9/11 that they deserved. I wanted to properly grieve for the family members who have lived this nightmare everyday for five years. But Bush and Co. has hijacked my grief, and it is replaced with rage and disgust.
[You couldn't grieve and it was BUSH'S FAULT.]
I'm sick of the pain, I'm sick of the loss, I'm sick of the moaning, I'm sick of the I don't see that it's gotten any better so it probably never will. It's a f*cking funeral around here! I'm still kinda new at DU and Olney Blue in another thread warned me that optimism was not a valued commodity among the DU community. Boy was that ever a true statement. Well fair enough. Pollyannas are pretty hard to live with and we've got to be realistic about what we're up against. But Jeeze, some of us sound like our grave has been dug and all that's left for us to do is pull the dirt in over us.
[Would you be so kind as to pull the dirt in over your own political grave? Thank you.]
We feel their pain!...that should make them feel beter...maybe we should fondle them a little too and try to kiss them and...
As if it matters unless you have a Nielsen box.
Man... Those are some LAME comebacks!
They just make themselves look even DUmber trying to respond to them!
Those rubbery things I like to refer to as "schlips"...
Seventy seconds cut is hardly gutted. From what I hear NO point was changed or even weakened. We did not have to see Berger hang up to understand he was incompetent and gutless.
I saw an actual, honest-to-goodness, DUmmie today. I was driving through the Costco parking lot, headed to Lowes, when I spotted this 50-ish man with long, frizzy, salt-and-pepper hair getting out of his car. I noticed several stickers on the back of the car, most notably the one from the Kerry-Edwards campaign. He then turned around, and to my amusement, he was wearing a shirt with the D.U. logo on it! It was a real treat to see one of them in the wild!
RE: the great "While Clinton Slept" cartoon...
To bad somebody can't get Clinton flustered under oath and have him stumble
into an admission like this:
"Ah did not sleep while those terrorist attacks were going on! Ah was
busy having s-e-.., er, ministering to White House interns!"
Damn! I need to start issuing DUmmie FUnnies T-Shirts. Imagine the reaction of the DUmmies when they see Li'l Beaver looking at them from a shirt with a mocking smile?
It's stuff I heard in third grade. The old "yeah, well you too" kind of response. These people aren't intelligent, aren't responsible, aren't imaginative. They just exist.
How many words? What lines?
From what I hear NO point was changed or even weakened.
From what you hear...?
We did not have to see Berger hang up to understand he was incompetent and gutless.
He was far more gutless and incompetent than portrayed in the butchered cut shown in the U.S.
Wouldn't want to be around this poster on Nov 8th ...
What's even more pathetic, is that the DUmmies probably read those lame comebacks and think they're HILARIOUS!
Be sure to make those DUmmie FUnnies T-shirts available in 3X for your...ahem...beefier readers.
No he was not. The movie showed his gutlessness and mendacity very well. Not only was the cut scene unnecessary but I would not be surprised to find the writer put a few extras in so when the predictable squawks were heard he could remove a bit just to be able to say he responded to the critics.
The movie was awesome and devastating to the Clintons, the CIA and the FBI. Even adding Somolia and Gorelick would just have been piling on. Like passing for a touchdown while ahead by 40 points in the last two minutes of a football game.
I am astonished that ABC allowed something like this to be produced and shown. And the network covered the costs. Amazing.
A sense of humor to a DUmmie is like water to the Wicked Witch of the West.
He certainly was more incompetent than portrayed. Merely naysaying the premise is not an argument. You need better information. If you think the cut scene was unnecessary, that's great, but the writer of the film thought it was necessary to put it in there in the first place, and I'll stick with him.
Your premise is what, the version shown in the U.S. was the most effective form the film could possibly taken? Ridiculous.
Have you seen the scenes in their uncut form?
Welcome to the club. Some of us have known this since January 1992.
We call it, "The DUmmie Experience."
The Day When Everyone Finally Woke Up!
