Posted on 12/01/2005 4:48:16 AM PST by unionblue83
Bruce Willis, famed action hero and one of a handful of Hollywood patriots, is gearing up to make and star in a movie about some real-life heroesAmerican soldiers risking and giving their lives in the continuing struggle in Iraq.
The film is to be based on the heroics of the Deuce Four, the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry, which has seen plenty of action fighting vicious killers in the infamous northern Iraqi terrorist stronghold of Mosul.
In Williss movie, U.S. soldiers will be portrayed as courageous and honorable, and their cause as noblea matter of course during World War II movies, but not something one expects from todays Hollywood with the likes of Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, and Michael Moore, whose extremist one-dimensional leftism is taken as deep intellect and moral superiority by almost everyone in Tinseltown.

he is a fine person
I agree. Denzel Washington is another fine Hollywooder as well. Too bad the MSM didn't cover his trip to BAMC in San Antonio, TX.
I predict that it will do $200 million plus and still get panned by the MSM. I'll be there!
That is a very dour and cynical view and the fact that I agree with you 100% does not change the asessment one bit.
Libs in this country have become far too predictable and that is bad for not only 'crats but for Rush, Sean and others because the talk show hosts have it so easy that they are losing their edge
I'll be there with all of my evil conservative friends!
I second that. I'll even buy popcorn.
I don't know how to make a post or I would but ... Look what the DNC is doing to Congress Woman Jean Schmidt for speaking out.....
I saw it on the news here in Columbus, Ohio this morning. They showed a billboard with Jean Schmidt on it and said the DNC put it up to shame her for her words on the floor.
I think this is like communist tactics of using fear and intimidation to quiet any voice who speaks out for our troops!
My plan is to take my lib brother and sister inlaw (love them to death just bad genes, union member and teacher).
I think he'd be great as CSM Prosser.
Bruce Willis is a born and bred "Jersey Guy".
Raised in Penns Grove, NJ, he attended Montclair State College (Montclair, NJ).
He is the political antithesis of two other famous New Jerseyans, Susan Sarandon and Bruce Springsteen.
New Jersey needs more Willis and less of the leftist traitors.
Wonder if I can pre-order at Amazon...
"Welcome to the party pal!"
"Welcome to the party pal!"
Isn't Bon Jovi a Jersey-boy-gone-leftist-scum too?
Yeah what is it about these teachers? They always seem to be liberal or turn that way afterward. I know there are many who remain conservative but it seems like the majority don't and it's pretty weird because most of the problems in the schools today were caused by liberal policies (removing corporal punishment and so on).
Ping for a Hollywood good guy! Let's get a little "Bump fest" going on here for a hollywood person that represents real America!
God bless Bruce Willis BUMP!!
IIRC, Willis became a Republican in large part due to GHWB and his handling of the first Gulf War. Willis was also making Die Hard 2 around that time and Fred Thompson was a positive influence on him as well.
Put Bruce, Mel, and Denzel together and they might be able to give John Wayne a fight.
My money's still on the Duke....I like the classics, what can I say? Although, I've got nothing but repsect for the 3 amigos mentioned above.
