White House Must Stop Sony from Releasing 'Killing bin Laden' Film
Breitbart ^ | 9/17/12 | John Nolte

Posted on 09/17/2012 2:19:27 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

Now that the White House and State Department have made clear that they believe movies compel terrorists to terrorize, it's time for them to get ahead of this problem. And one thing the White House can do immediately is to pressure Sony to stop the release of director Kathryn Bigelow's "Zero Dark Thirty," which celebrates the killing of Osama bin Laden.

I'm only saying this because, you know, the White House and the media told me movies inflame and cause terrorism.

Think about it: if the poorly produced and laughably bad trailer for "The Innocence of Muslims" results in chaos, murder, and the burning of foreign outposts all throughout the Middle East, how much rioting and mayhem is a big-budgeted, slickly produced, Oscar-bait blockbuster celebrating the death of the leader of al-Qaeda going to cause?

Moreover, an excuse Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will not be able to use in the case of "Zero Dark Thirty" (as she did with "Innocence of Muslims") is the cowardly and self-righteous claim that the federal government and the Obama White House had nothing to do with "Zero Dark Thirty."

Because the federal government and the Obama White House had everything to do with "Zero Dark Thirty."

As we now know, in an effort to get this glitzy in-kind contribution (tens of millions of dollars) up on the screen in time to affect the election, it was the Obama Administration that gave the filmmakers tons of encouragement and a troubling amount of access to all kinds of classified material.

But this very same Obama Administration has since learned that it wasn't the Obama Doctrine of disengaging with the Middle East and embracing the Muslim Brotherhood that caused all this mayhem and murder last week. It was a movie.

Can’t disagree with it, they’d better refilm it with OBL slipping out the back, and having Obama lie about the whole killed Bin Laden bit. That will let them off the hook.

You know, because movies create terrorism.

By the same logic, we will have to stop wives from irritating their abusive husbands, even if it means loss of freedom of speech. Obama's brave new world.

In the interests of avoiding offending Muslims who disproportionately support 0bama/0sama, this movie must be quashed.

Will its producer go into hiding? Be questioned by government agents?

Obama could try the “you didn’t build that” mantra to take the film makers off the hook.

And since ‘ally is an art,’ who knows what they will come up with next.

Why didn’t the government ever go after the publisher of the American edition of The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie?

Oh, we still had a 1st amendment then. In spite of what the Left said about efforts to defund the NEA.

Right....burn the film, let all the actors go into hiding....and Clint Eastwood can do a gig talking to an empty movie director's chair on the stage at the Oscars.

Fat chance...

The American people aren’t allowed to know the names of the guys who killed Bin Laden (Holder is fighting it in court) but the movie makers have the names.

******

Feds: Hide SEAL name given to Hollywood

Last July, a top Pentagon official gave two Hollywood filmmakers the name of a Navy SEAL involved in training the squad of commandos who carried out the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. Now, the Obama administration is fighting to keep that same name from the public.

In legal papers filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Washington, the Justice Department argued that the government is under no obligation to make public the SEAL’s name or the names of Central Intelligence Agency personnel involved simply because officials shared their names, partial names or identities with the makers of a forthcoming movie about the raid, “Zero Dark Thirty.”

No. We should not ban any speech but it is good to notice how the “sensitive and tolerant” ones do a movie so Obama can brag about “killing Bin Laden.” They are full of it.

Interesting to note that the 0bama regime LEAKED THE NAMES OF THE SEALs INVOLVED IN THIS MISSION to the producers of this film and ARE NOW SUING TO PREVENT DISCLOSURE OF THEIR NAMES. Go figure.

>> Why didn’t the government ever go after...

No scapegoat was necessary at the time.

Not only is scapegoating an American filmmaker, or any filmmaker, obscene, doing so at the expense of the 1st Amendment is especially egregious.

Notice the silence from Hollywood, ACLU, Congress, and the MSM regarding this attack on the 1st Amendment.

Imagine if Bush, while President, participated in the production of a film regarding the capture and trials of Saddam Hussein. The Left would have labeled him a low class douche bag.

But he didn't, so they couldn't, because he isn't. The same cannot be said of the douche bag who currently "occupies" the White House.

Just a way of getting people interested to see the film and remind them at every chance that Obama gave the Go order to kill Osama... eventually.... between rounds of golf.

I was wondering how they edit it now that the TRUTH about Bin Laden is known and how he died. He stuck his head through a door and took a couple of shots in the head, and never had time to grab a weapon even if he had wanted to. You know damn well the Hollywood version has him dying in a firefight with a machine gun in both hands and a machete in his teeth. LOL. The only people that will go see this liberal Hollywood garbage are die hard Obama dolts. I wouldn’t see it if it was being shown for free.

Obama won't have to attempt to cancel the release of the movie because he had it moved back until after the election because he probably told Bigelow to make Bin Laden the hero and that Osama only died because of the evil Americans that outnumbered him 40,000 to 1. It'll probably be filled with “feel good” Muslim propaganda and we will be left with empathy for the fallen jihadist. I'd put the sarcasm thingy up but I wouldn't put it past Zero to do this.

Or, they could try this. Remake the last scene of the movie and raise OBL from the dead. Wouldn’t that give the Muslims something to sink their teeth into rather than terrorize others? Then BO could sallie FORWARD as the great peace maker in chief.
