It Happens. So its Part of What We Are. Said Robinson Devor on behalf of his new film about bestiality inflicted by men upon horses.
Now, Ive heard every miserable and pathetic excuse in the book. We have successfully defined deviancy down to the bedrock and dont have a sharp enough drill bit to sink it any lower. Daniel Patrick Moynihan would turn over in his grave, but not if Robinson Devor, the director of the movie Zoo, were anywhere near his final resting place.
Devors decent into the depths of human depravity was unveiled at this years Sundance Film Festival. Devors new masterpiece examines the aesthetic aspects of man-on-horse sexual relationships. No, Im not exaggerating or making this up. Cine dArte now features aesthetic discussions of man-on-horse sexuality.
Im not reacting angrily to the fact that Robinson Devor decided to make a movie about bestiality. Im angry that he acts as if bestiality involves never having to say that youre sorry. Im even more thoroughly angry that this movie got a glowing review from Kenneth Turin of The Los Angeles Times.
"I aestheticized the sleaze right out of it." Devor claims proudly. Im sure the creative geniuses that brought us Laughing Tongues also felt proud of the money shots. However, there are some things you cant aestheticize the sleaze right out of. Getting your rocks off on a defenseless animal would have to belong on that list.
Twenty-five American soldiers dying in Iraq makes me sad, but I believe we can persevere through that. We made it past The Death March of Bataan and the landscape turned red at Anteitam. America can accept pain and suffering and still survive.
Yet, if this is what our nations artistic avant-garde admires, can we remain long on this earth as a nation? Isnt our cultural heritage something we fight for? If this is the America the world sees at the movies, who can blame Osauma if he hates us. This cannot be what we are letting ourselves become.
The Sundance Film Festival propaganda describes the film as follows:
The cinematic language invented for the film permits us to examine where we draw the line, how much perversity we can tolerate in others. In a broader sense, Zoo is really about thresholds. What can we stand to know, and, more importantly, what can we stand to accept?
These guys get their enjoyment from sexually molesting horses. Should I really have to examine whether Id find this beyond the pale of acceptable human desires? Are there people sitting near my cube in the office thinking? Gosh, why do we get so bent out of shape over guys who molest the livestock? Not if our society is any way worth approving.
On most moral issues, Id probably aggravate a healthy plurality of the modern Conservative Movement. I really dont care what two human beings above any reasonable age of consent do to one another by mutual agreement and in the privacy of their own homes. It's just that there has to be a limit to the level of acceptable behavior somewhere. A grate has to be installed above the sewer.
It Happens. So its Part of What We Are. Devor pontificates.
"I aestheticized the sleaze right out of it." Devor brags.
Devor cannot be right in either assertion. He cannot be deemed logical if we are to remain civilized. A line has to be drawn somewhere to arrest this appalling moral decay. It has gotten bad enough that Im thinking that maybe mean old Reverend Cotton Mather legitimately had a point.
What Cotton Mather have right? Burning witches?
It will be interesting to see if Hollywood buys this.
I wonder what PETA thinks?
It Happens. So its Part of What We Are.
That's the mindset of the Borg.
actually, it's horse-on-man, not the other way around.
Perhaps they should ask "Mr. Ed."
I SO! don't want assimilated...
Oh,horse on MAN.THATS different then.
One of my ancestors was murdered in that stupidity.
as well as the old adage "it is better to give than receive."
I know! It makes my skin crawl...
Now that's a horse of a different color...
Remember when a man on horseback was merely a symbol of rank authoritarianism?
I heard the equine was"hung like a horse".
Mr. Ed, why are you smoking a cigarette with your owner?
Don't you two know that's bad for you guys?

This stuff is getting more revolting by the day! Compared to this, "Brokeback Mountain" would be considered a "wholesome movie for the whole family."
Well, as long as they aren't smoking cigarettes or being Global Warming skeptics, most anything goes. ;~((
Man dies after sex with horse
19/07/2005 07:54 - (SA)
San Francisco - A man died of internal injuries from sex with a stallion at a ranch used by a bestiality ring, police in the northwestern United States state of Washington said on Monday.
The man suffered fatal trauma while being sodomised by a stallion at a stud farm that catered to men who wanted sex with animals, Enumclaw Police Commander Eric Sortland told AFP.
"Basically, his colon was ruptured, along with his lower organs in that region, and he bled out," Sortland said.
I recall when it happenned, the horse 'got' him good. killed him and there wasn't much that could be done since is wasn't against the law. they changed that, and there is a case a couple fo months ago that was going through the system of bestiality.
we call it 'perv of teh week'. this is a runnign episode, been going on for a while.
I remember the FR threads after that story was posted.
I'd go look 'em up for reference, but the images are just too sickening.
"It will be interesting to see if Hollywood buys this." They bought homosexuality and now even have made a movie about pedophilia. I can't believe how disgustingly low this crowd is sinking!
*Typical liberal response to any form of depravity.
Maybe some of the horses will start kicking the sodomites and their ability to violate the horses will be eliminated!
"A grate has to be installed above the sewer." Too late. The democrap party depends upong deviancy for empowerment. Paging Bawney Fwanks, bill clinton, ted the swimmer, etc.
Just another B to add to the GLBT alliance. The P is also just around the corner.
I forgot to warn everybody to avoid beastophobic comments or risk being called a bigot.
Click it and see why...
This was a good thread: Sundance with the Devil
The Hollyweird perversion that comes from Sundance is just obscene. What's next? A 12 year old being raped?
Ooops. Been there. Done that
By and large being idiotice lefties, PETA probably has nothing but praise for this sick crap. All lefties are sick distorted people.
A lot of the stuff that plays at sundance never sees the inside of a movie theater.
Yes, how much evil can we tolerate in others? That would be a measure of our moral cowardice.
Wasn't Brokeback Mountain a Sundance film?
And that Al Gore POS?
I can't remember. I pay as much attention to this garbage as I do to whether Paris Hilton pleads not guilty, or if Lindsay Lohan is in rehab or if Rosie is scarfing down 5 enchiladas and calling Trump some names again.
Someone tell me again how this is a multi-billion dollar industry?????
'Brokeback Mountain' premiered at the Venice Film Festival. Redford's whole idea behind Sundance was to display films that initially couldn't get Hollywood backing. How is the publishing industry so big with so many bad books? It's a large industry.
And why aren't the PETA nazis protesting this? Maybe they figure the horses like it, so no problem.
Excuse me, but by turning your head to homosexuality, you are allowing in the next things; like incest and beastiality and child molestation.
I guess we dont need to ask if it was a young horse?....
No, fourty years ago, this is how they described Rosemary's Baby!
Don't bet on it.
There were walk outs at the initial 1951 screenings of 'A Streetcar Named Desire' claiming that Hollywood had sank to ann all time low of perversion.
Why this is happening...
Romans 1:21-32 Because that, when THEY KNEW GOD, they GLORIFIED HIM NOT AS GOD, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And CHANGED the glory of the uncorruptible God into an IMAGE made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
-->> Wherefore GOD ALSO GAVE THEM UP TO uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
-->> And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
