CBS Hawaii Five-O Crew Disses Pearl Harbor Survivors: A Disgrace at Punchbowl
Hawaii Reporter ^ | Steffan Tubbs

Posted on 12/12/2011 11:01:46 PM PST by Lornik

It looked strange from the moment we pulled up to thePunchbowl, a sacred Hawaiian site once the location for human sacrifice before Cook's arrival to the islands. Our tour bus, filled with 23 WWII Pearl Harbor survivors as part of The Greatest Generations Foundation came to the beautiful location in an old crater above downtown Honolulu for a closing ceremony and presentation. The National Cemetery of the Pacific pays tribute to those veterans of all faiths who served their country, many who lost their lives during WWII.

Take a read at how the HAWAII FIVE-0 production crew treated the Pearl Harbor survivors on the 70th anniversary of the bombings. These people are lower than pond scum!

I admit I was not happy two days earlier on the morning of December 7 at the Pearl Harbor Memorial service. Thousands of people in attendance, yet President Barack Obama – born just a few miles from the USS Arizona memorial – was not only a no-show, but did not bother to send a written or videotaped greeting of thanks to these men. And then there was no-show Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, his bio and picture listed in the program and scheduled to deliver remarks in person.

They think Pearl Harbor is a Ben Affleck movie.

This was disgraceful to say the least. They couldn’t find a different date to shoot this? If they were having an episode with a Pearl Harbor theme, wouldn’t it have made sense to air the episode the week of the anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack? Wouldn’t it get better ratings that way and put things into context for the average viewer? This would have meant that their production schedule have started months in advance of this date, and therefore, no disrespectful intrusion on the day of the anniversary. Sure, they had a job to do, but the timing was awful to say the least. Did they really think no one else would be there on that important day?

It is also apparent that these Hollyweirdos seem to feel entitled like virtually every other Democrat. They want what they want and they want someone else to ‘pay’ for it. No surprise there.

“told us we couldn't stand near the graves because we were in “the line of sight” of the actors.”

They were Occupying the Line of Sight. OLS.

Hmm. Now here is an idea. What if a bunch of guys in yellow Tea Party t-shirts were to show up and OLS Hollywood productions, especially when Alex Baldwin types are involved? A few people could make it nearly impossible to film anything in a public venue. It would be great fun feeding them some of their own medicine.

It is important to remember ALL who served and sacrificed for the greatest country on earth!!

HEAR A PIN DROP

When in England at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of empire building by George Bush.

He answered by saying: “Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return.

You could have heard a pin drop.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Then there was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American.

During a break one of the French engineers came back into the room saying “Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intended to do, bomb them?”

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: “Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people. They are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities.

They have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people 3 meals a day.

They can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck.

We have eleven such ships, how many does France have?

You could have heard a pin drop.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navy’s.

At a cocktail reception he found himself standing with a large group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries.

Everyone was chatting a way in English as they sipped their drinks, a French Admiral suddenly complained that “Whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English.” He then asked “Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?”

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied “Maybe its because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn’t have to speak German.”

You could have heard a pin drop.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

AND THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE...

A group of Americans, retired teachers, recently went to France on a tour.

Robert Whiting an elderly gentleman of 83 arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on.

“You have been to France before, monsieur?” the French Customs Officer asked sarcastically.

Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

“Then you should know enough to have your passport ready.” the French Customs Officer stated.

The American said, “The last time I was here I didn’t have to show it.”

“That’s impossible Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France!” the French Customs Officer said in contempt.

The American senior gave the Frenchman along hard look, then he quietly explained. “Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country you call France, I couldn’t find any Frenchmen to show it to!”

You could have heard a pin drop

I have been wondering about that for years. Why doesn't Hollywood/TV try to find anyone who commands the screen like Jack Lord, even as a “one off.” Instead we get Mcactors where anyone can fill the bill. The closest thing we get these days is roles like Sam Waterston in Law & Order acting high horse.

I think because back before cable a 25% share would be considered bad, so you needed the best actors, best writers, best directors, best everything to be a success. Today if you can get 10-20 million people to watch your show you have done your job.

This is why I watch cable tv shows where there is sill fierece competition for ratings. Breaking Bad, Monk, Burn Notice, Psych etc. All are much more enjoyable then the big three have made in decades.

Cable TV shows like Breaking Bad,Monk, Burn Notice, and Psych etc are mega hit shows for their basic cable networks with certain renewal if they get 2m viewers.

It is niche marketing.

While network tv is mass marketing.

That competition is much more fierce.

If his group of vets didn’t notice what was going on, maybe I’m wrong, but I think he should have just not brought it up to them. Why spoil a good day by calling attention to something they hadn’t even noticed?

The real question is: "Who would be so STUPID as to rent out a part of a WWII cemetery in Hawaii on Dec. 7?"

Or for that matter on any day?

Danno was the minister on the scaffold with the others in the old spaghetti western, “Hang’em High”.

I have enjoyed this show. Too bad to hear they acted like asses on this very special day to the veterans.
Who in the world did the planning for the TV show on shooting where they did on this day?

They very likely could have adjusted their shooting schedule. They didn't think about the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor; and being in a military cemetery?

Thanks for posting those, TF. They’ve been around awhile, but always give a thumping good laugh and a bit of a lump in my throat for what a damn wonderful country I live in.

I would bet that the cast themselves were not aware of all this going on. It was probably just the self-important crew messing things up.

Shame on CBS. What a bunch of worthless freaks. I watched my last “Five 0” and CBS unless a FULL apologize is published and shown during “50”.

I agree. The writer kept saying that no one noticed what was going on but him. It kind of makes me wonder if he just misinterpreted the entire thing.

Don't watch this show. Never have, and now, certainly never will.

This does sound like the type of environment to host the Obamaos for their taxpaid vacay. Obama didn't show up or acknowledge these Veterans and the 70th anniversary Pearl Harbor Memorial service. But he and wifey sure have it in them to show up for their own beach time there now don't they?
