H'WOOD MORONS SUDDENLY CLAM UP
NY Post ^ | August 11, 2006 | Andrea Peyser

Posted on 08/11/2006 9:29:08 AM PDT by presidio9

STRANGE and unfamiliar sound emanated from Hollywood yesterday - total silence. It now looks as if the 9/11 attacks were just meant to be a tepid dress rehearsal for the big show. The atrocities that were narrowly averted yesterday - planes bound for our shores, to be blown up in midair by men who hate - prove one thing beyond doubt:

If we care to watch our children grow up, get old enough to retire to Florida, or simply live to see another dawn, we must be vigilant. We cannot relax.

The bullet we dodged whizzed by frighteningly close. That the thousands, perhaps more, that were targeted for death are alive today is testament to the success of governments in Britain and the United States. The ones so viciously maligned by the lefty set who, if allowed to dictate policy, would destroy this nation in a matter of hours.

So it was stunning not to hear the nasal voice of Barbra Streisand, slamming the president in a time of war. Just this past January, Babs was in her usual form in her incoherent blog. She wrote:

"Is this the America we have been fighting for? The Bush administration has failed once more in their [sic] mission to make American safer.

"There is an increasing anti-American sentiment in the Middle East."

John Murtha of Pennsylvania, the House's chief voice of enemy-appeasement - he's called for an unconditional cease-fire in Lebanon and said U.S. Marines "killed innocent civilians in cold blood" in Haditha - was also not in a talkative mood.

Nor was Susan Sarandon, who declared, at a peace rally in Washington after the war in Iraq commenced, that "terrorism cannot be fought with violence."

Damn, Susan. How would you fight it?

We have been reminded in

Hollywood has not had a good couple of years and is in a cost-cutting mood. The bubblebrains would rather keep their Malibu mansions than further alienate their audience.

They'll fight it like they always do. On TV. In a half hour they'll convince the bad guys that there is a better way and convince them through dialogue and love that it wasn't their fault. It was the fault of the Christians and Conservatives. And the war on terror will come to and end. And there will be inspiring music, rainbows, bunnies, and happy faces all around.

Yeah, even Michael Moore or Streisand could have been on one of them...would that not have been appropriate justice?

They wanted to kill us before Bush, Afghanistan or Iraq. And they still want to kill us.

Anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool, and Hollywood is filled with them.

There is nothing so wrong with the world that a mass celebrity fund-raising concert couldn't solve. The concert after 9/11 proved this.

Babs would sing "People needing People" to try and convince the terrorist that she really loved them and their cause.
The pilot, out of sheer ear pain would ditch the aircraft into the Atlantic Ocean.

Give it some time, they'll be preaching to us plebes that we should be more tolerant and understanding and a lot less closed-minded of the plight these Muslims go through, and that all of this could have been averted if Bush & Company hadn't taken us to war in Afghanistan and Iraq. I predict the first one to open their yap will be Sean Penn, or perhaps Martin Sheen.

"I would fight it with understanding, with love in my heart for fellow sojourners through this pilgrimage of life. I would listen to their pain and make it my own, in an ever widening circle of forgiveness. I love you guys of FR I really . One day you'll see we are all just children trying to find our ways through life and make million out of second rate films, er, I mean trying to find happiness. I know what is like to hold the hand of a friend and shoot the car off a cliff. Inside me I am at peace,. Dear Freepers I hope you can find it to, I really really really do. "

This article is intellectually dishonest.

It's not like the media would swarm these celebs as they do a high government official within 24 hours to get their opinions and statements.

Give Mss. Streisand, Saradon & friends another 48 hours and the tabloids and blogs will be chuck full of their crappy views.

They will blame the war in iraq and other so-called 'failed' policies for this latest attempt by the British Pakistani muslims to blow up airliners.

And I think you are correct! Conservatives are problem solvers. First the problem has to be identified. Then, a solution has to be proposed. Then it must be enacted and evaluated, and changed when necessary. Finally, the problem is solved. Liberals can't get past identifying the problem. It takes too much time, effort, and mental acuity.

Ya you see them cutting back. Please they are not hurting and most likely never will. I don't understand how people can buy into this. You and I live on 60K a year and we are pitying them for living on 18 million a film instead of 20 million.

More and more celebs (and rich folks in general) are either buying their own planes or buying/leasing fractional ownership in private jets. As fewer celebs fly commercial airlines, you can expect them to worry (even) less than they already do about terror in the air.

Ding, ding, ding!

Not that I wish anyone ill, but these clowns (as documented here many times on FR) spew their anti-Administration / anti-US / anti-Bush rhetoric to applauding European audiences and media.

One wonders about the level of anti-Bush vitriol that would be present in a Sarandon, Depp, or a Streisand placidly drinking their champaigne or chi-chi bottled water in the First Class Cabin at the moment someone behind them screams "Allah Acbar"!

What was it that Chuck Schumer was complaining about at Heathrow yesterday? Its never about terrorism, its about some supposed inconvienance of the annointed/enlightened ones, or trampling/infringement of someones rights. Its never about the terrorism.

Like the question one of the Freepers posed to the international desk at NYT "You guys bummed out that you didn't get the information soon enough to print on the front page so as to warn the terrorists something was afoot?" The person who answered the phone responded: "What kind of question is that?" and hung up.

Bwahhahhahhahhahhah NYT reporter hangs up

Its never about the terrorism.

I can't help but smile at your comment as I've often had the same feeling. The 9/11 celebrity thing was nothing if not extremely weird. I admire those that go entertain the troops but the 9/11 thing, where Julia Roberts came on stage and intoned, with great emotion, "God is Great" was insane as was her choice of words. I could hardly believe she chose Allah Akbar as her contribution. And later I heard that many of the celebs were given "gifts" for their appearance.

Dear Susan, you blithering twit..

The islamofacsist doesn't want you to feel his pain; he wants to inflict pain and death upon you. He doesn't want to hold hands around the campfire singing kumbaya, he wants to slit your child's throat while you watch.

Seek profession help Susan, for your delusions of... everything.

Only cause he is an idiot. If he did not do the stupid dance on the couch he would still be getting his normal pay. That is something Hollywood punishes them for not politics. For the most part I wish you were more correct than you are. They need a significant loss of income for them to wake up and it just is not going to happen at this time. This year the box office is up from the previous couple years. I guess last year they did lose a bit and they of course were crying, but I don't pity them at this time. I mean if they started to give them normal paychecks and then they lowered their pay, then they would certainly get SOME pity from me.

H'wood tried to recoup by making the new 9/11 movie, but just couldn't resist letting Fidel suckup Oliver Stone direct it. After his mega homobomb, Alexander, OS needs a hit.
I did have an open mind about this movie until I read a few reviews that pointed out the fact that OBL or Muslims or terrorists are just three subjects never once mentioned in the entire movie. As far as I can tell from these reviews, this is a rehash of that Towering Inferno movie, only without so many stars.

H'wood movies can jam it. I'm done with them. Walking a very thin line in this house is network TV. I am only waiting until the LO:SVU show runs out of gruesome sexual perversions happening to small children of both sexes. I want to see the episode that is so sick, so twisted, so blatantly Leftie Nanny State PC BS that I actually puke on my shoes. Then I'll be done with TV. I do watch Boston Legal, but I view it as a comedic rendering of David E. Kelly's mental illness.

TiVo is my new best friend. I've taped some of those truly great old movies and shared them with my daughter and her friends who are quite surprised at how beautiful and charming the actresses of that time were...Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, and even Shirley McLaine. Shirl's nuttier than a fruitcake, but nobody ever knew it. That era had polish and class. The filth was well hidden and it was good for all of us. Now they put the contents of a toilet bowl up on a megaplex screen and young people worship the new golden calf.
Sad for the kids these days.

My recollection of the news of 9/11 goes a little like this: I was awakened (In Savannah) by my wife who had been chatting on line with my brother (in Brussels). She was alerted to turn on the news as he saw it come across CNN. I watched the first couple of hours groggily - but remember distinctly a disproportionate amount of attention being given by Barbara Walters on ABC to a particular television industry executive who had been lost on one of the planes that struck the WTC. Granted he was someone she knew - but at that point it was not yet clear that there were not 20,000+ casualties at the WTC site. There is an incredibly unconscious sense of value that celebrities place on other celebrities - to the degree that the other citizens (fly over country, etc.) don't matter. It comes to light in the most grotesque manner (a la Baba Wawa) and it's absolutely sickening.

The problem is Hollyweird doesn't have any directors who know how to do a war movie. The only decent one I've seen in years was Mel's We Were Soldiers.
