Inflammatory Anti-Muslim “Movie” May Not Be A Real Movie
www.buzzfeed.com ^ | Sept 13 2012 | Rosie Gray

Posted on 09/13/2012 10:52:59 PM PDT by NoLibZone

The anti-Muslim "movie" that served as the spark or pretext for a wave of violent unrest in Egypt and Libya may not be a movie at all.

As the video above — cut from the YouTube video tied to a global controversy — shows, nearly all of the names in the movie's "trailer" are overdubbed. The video is a compilation of the most clumsily overdubbed moments from what is in reality an incoherent, haphazardly-edited set of scenes. Among the overdubbed words is "Mohammed," suggesting that the footage was taken from a film about something else entirely. The footage also suggests multiple video sources — there are obvious and jarring discrepancies among actors and locations.

However, CNN has reported that the cast and crew disavowed the movie, and the overdubbing could also have been to conceal the content from the cast itself. Gawker interviewed a woman who played a part in the movie, who said that she had had no idea what it was about when she was hired.

As The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg reported today, the supposed filmmaker, "Sam Bacile," appears not to be a real person — or at least not the director of the movie. A consultant to the movie, Steve Klein, told Goldberg that he didn't know Bacile's real name and that he wasn't Israeli as reported.

It’s as good as the DNCs Russian flagged warships being shown as tribute to the Vets.

The DNC made the film.

They pressured the Fl pastor to shut up but never asked Eric Schmidt the CEO of Google/YouTube to not air such in the ME?

Yeah right.

There are so many strange factors in this crisis, where to begin.

- The mysterious film supposedly made in California insulting the Prophet Muhammad cannot be found. The only record of its existence is a 12 minute trailer on Youtube that has been around for some time. The Israeli creator, Sam Becil, does not exist according to US and Israeli investigation. He is now suspected of being a Coptic Christian ex-con. In an interview, he made statements that he had been funded by 50 Jewish donors who hated Islam. From this, it looks like the movie was ghosted, with nobody who acted knowing what the hell they were involved with

- Early reports suggest the Libyan authorities aided the Al Qaeda-aligned assassination squad, or at least the mob they used as cover to murder our ambassador. Unconfirmed reports from a Lebanese news organization say Stephens may have been sodomized before he was killed.

- Another video from the Libyan embassy apparently shows someone shouting “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot… Mursi sent us”. Mursi is the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt.

- Now, four have been arrested by the Libyan police. The efficiency is peculiar as they couldn’t even defend the embassy from its attackers. It’s likely this move is a scam to try and prevent aid being cancelled, something Rand Paul and others are trying to jam through congress.

- Tensions are rising across the Middle East, with violent mobs in Yemen, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Gaza, and are expected to spark after the call to prayer on Friday. Meanwhile, in Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood are leading a million man march to protest the film that was supposedly shown on a Salafist network. We know how these clerics can whip up a storm.

- The Independent, a left leaning UK paper, cites diplomatic sources that say Obama’s admin knew about the attack 48 hours in advance and did nothing.

- Meanwhile, China is trying to strongarm Japan and seize the Senkaku Islands and Iran is racing towards a nuclear weapon while Israel’s relationship with Washington is flatlining. The only thing missing here would be another sighting of a Russian sub in the Gulf.

This seems like one of those incidents where there is more than meets the eye. Something’s going on here just beyond the lens. As Americans, we should tread carefully because none of this fits.

Did it make them look bad and if so to whom?
The media will cover for both of them in the meantime
people think Romney was meddling and CNN is talking about the movie causing the strife and murder.

Half of the country is informed and the other half (Obamas
half) have no clue just that Romney is bad.

If this was planned I think Obama planned it just as a
diversion who knows may be to suspend the Constitution. I read now the FBI said there may be trouble in the US due to the film.

Just a little off subject, but if you notice today, Bernanke said he would print counterfeit money till the cows come home. I was already wondering how much more the economy could withstand, but IMHO, this is about it.

Just doing the numbers he said today, he will print $40 billion a month or $500 billion a year. Now the Dems flipped their lids over about $100 billion a year on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars together. This is 5 times that every year.

I have no doubt now that Obama is trying to destroy America. This is insanity in the flesh. Printing almost $3 trillion hasn't worked so far, why would it perform miracles now? I really don't know if we can survive this till Jan 20th. Then there is always the chance he could be re elected. Things are gonna get plum prehistoric,IMO.

So the economy will be in the crapper, the whole world will be on fire, and Europe and China will be broke. And the Dems will still vote for him. I got no hope and the change is killing me.

What is most frightening is the reality that so damned many of our fellow Americans are so lost that they believe little barry bastard commie is their savior! we can vote that bastard out, install a new approach, but what do we do with the damned fools who welcome such evil into the house???? They are like a disease which is not cured, only the symptoms are treated until the disease kills the host!

Clinton also gave the muzzies two US embassy bombings in East Africa with no retaliation save for the bombing of a Sudanese aspirin factory.

Oh there was a reason; to appease the Islamic world for our daily bombings of Iraq. Clinton wanted to prove to the Islamic world that we really cared and that we were willing to kill Christian people to prove it.

It occurred to me that this might be one of those fake movie trailers. A ton of people make up stuff, or revise other trailers, and post them on YouTube. Here is one of my favorites:

....."The man identifying himself as Bacile told the AP he was an Israeli-born, 56-year-old Jewish writer and director. But a Christian activist involved in the film project, Steve Klein, told the AP on Wednesday that Bacile was a pseudonym and that the man was Christian. Klein had told the AP on Tuesday that the filmmaker was an Israeli Jew who was concerned for family members who live in Egypt."....... US police protect suspected anti-Islam filmmaker

"I read now the FBI said there may be trouble in the US due to the film."

Something smells here, big time. Here's my conspiracy theory to fit the facts we have thus far.

Obama administration (he skipped Intelligence briefings on purpose for plausible deniability), receives notice of attack 48 hours in advance. Working with friends in Hollywood, they rapidly scrabble together a poorly made film as a "scapegoat", or they repurpose an existing poorly made film. Video is posted to Google (Dem sponsor) just prior to the attack. Scapegoat in place.

Attack spurs further protests working the Middle East into a frenzy. Terrorist groups launch splinter cells here in the U.S. and create a few domestic terror events (bridge or building bombings). Obama has his 9/11 moment, and steps forward to rally the nation. Obama rides wave of patriotism back into the White House.

Remember how much the Democrats HATED George W. Bush, particularly because of how he rallied the nation after 9/11, even wishing 9/11 had happened on "their watch".

We’re supposed to believe all these Middle Easterners are sitting at their PC’s looking for anti-Muslim Youtube videos and it “all of a sudden” went viral?

These mobs were deliberately riled up.

Production quality aside the, um, Video makes a very reasonable assertion:
 
"Man + x = BT
and
 BT - x = Man"
 
{ Where BT represents Islamic (Theocratic ) Terrorist (Tyrant) and x... must be the self-evident Truth discovered by the FREE Individual }
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MAiOEV0v2RM
 
 
Yep. 

 


"...who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world, and through all time;
 
...
 
 that it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government, for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order; and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them.
