Sam Bacile And His Low-Budget Anti-Muslim Movie: Is It All A Hoax?
International Business Times ^ | 9-12-2012 | Christopher Zara

Posted on 09/17/2012 5:22:04 PM PDT by Renfield

...Bacile claims to have made "Innocence of Muslims" on a budget of $5 million with the help of 100 Jewish donors, but one look at the film clips on YouTube will call that claim into question. The movie appears to have been shot using a consumer-grade DV camcorder with amateur actors, fake backgrounds and cheap sets. The lighting and sound are of equally low quality. In Hollywood dollars, $5 million may be considered low-budget, but if the filmmaker really spent that much money on this shoddy work, it's his donors who should be doing the protesting.

Meanwhile, efforts to uncover the film's anonymous funders have so far turned up nothing. Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent for the Atlantic, tweeted on Wednesday: "I would love to know more about Mr. Sam Bacile, whom no Jew I know has ever heard, and his 100 mysterious backers."

That's assuming there even is a film. In early July, two 13-minute clips were posted on a YouTube account by someone with the username Sam Bacile, but no one has come forward claiming to have seen the finished product. Moreover, IMDb lists nothing for the project or Bacile himself, to say nothing of the supposed 59 actors and 45 crew members who worked on it....

George Romero shot the original “Night of the Living Dead” for less than $300,000.

And its far superior to this amateur-hour train wreck.

I don’t think there is a real movie—in the end this will have been made only to cause the outrage in the Islamic world. It was done as A) a scam, B) part of Obamas re-election, C) to get the USA to help Israel, D) as part of some bigger plot. Maybe I need to switch to de-caf.

Is It All A Hoax?

I watched the 14 minute clip (there is a 20 minute one also).

It is blatantly obvious that someone took the original video, and did some audio dubbing, especially when the main character is asked “what is your name” and he responds “Mohammed”.

IMHO, the original video must not have made mention of Muhammed’s name. SO... someone dubbed it in before uploading it to YOUTUBE.

HOWEVER, it is not what sparked the rioting and murders.

It’s a great hoax, if indeed it is.

We need one of these “films” every year or so, to put the Troglydytes in the mid east on to the streets and get them rioting.

How to control the Arabs? Keep them weak, divided, and agitated. Shouldn’t be hard to do - its their natural inclination.

I continue to say that any administration that would initiate operation Fast and Furious in an effort to abridge the 2nd amendment would easily initiate a cheap video stunt in an effort to eventually abridge the 1st amendment.

People getting killed as a result of these actions do not matter - abridging rights is all that matters.

This is Jew-hating disinformation. The real story - as much as is known - is easily available on FR and elsewhere on line.

O'Really had an Islamic woman on tonight, she said the riots don't have anything to do with Islam or religion at all. Charles Krauthammer said the riots are about Obama's failed promises after his inflammatory Cairo speech.

i agree. this doesn’t pass the smell test.
...for many reasons.
-
a convicted fraud, turns government snitch.
he’s on probation, which he seems to have violated.
-
yet, both he AND LIBERAL GOOGLE,
both REFUSE to remove the video,
that incites riots globally ?
-
really?
-
and, there seems to be no real movie.
and the actual footage is clumsily dubbed.
simply to make it “offensive” to Muslims.
WHY?
...does the government snitch on probation,
seem to have a real interest or past history,
in this subject, like Pipes, Gellar, Spencer, Bostom?
no.
-
there are LOTS of videos on youtube,
that are MORE offensive.
(like Anne B., burning her bacon Koran.)
-
...but, if Obama needed one video,
that the owner WOULDN’T remove.
(perhaps as a reason to release the “Blind Sheikh”???)
...this would fit the bill.
-
Occam’s Razor. i’d be happy to hear something else,
that would fit why this government snitch on probation,
would do this in the first place,
and then, (along with LIBERAL Google),
REFUSE to remove it.

Obama’s DOJ Can’t Say Criticizing Religion Will Remain Legal (Video at Link)
NRO ^ | September 17, 2012 5:48 P.M.

Posted on Monday, September 17, 2012 9:05:16 PM by Perdogg

The exchange below, between Representative Trent Franks and Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez, occurred in late July, but is particularly relevant today. Representatvie Franks tries to extract an assurance from Perez that the Obama administration will not push a proposal to criminalize speech “against any religion.” He has a tough time doing so.
///
and that bad dubbed video, created by a government snitch on probation, was placed on youtube at the beginning of July.

Nakoula seems to be the perfect easily pressured patsy who is conveniently secreted away in custody where no one can ask him any questions.

I really think this could be the Dan rather breakdown of this election. Enterprising conservatives could take this thing down.

The film is probably a false flag.

The CSM article also suggests this possibility.

The critical missing link is the probability that the Arab Islamic televangelist did the key Arabic dubbing.

The dubbing is quite poor and after the fact editing. Hopefully it could be uncovered that Egyptian radicals created this and the administration played along.

Yeah why no outcry over Team America? The film just happened to be a good excuse to execute the attacks. Maybe they all worked in collusion so that their attacks would seem justified to the Muslim world and incite the people of Islamic faith to riot.

No, no. You're on the right track. Isn't it surprising how very few Americans have trouble believing that Obama set this whole thing up to save his presidency. Personally, I want to know what Hilliary was doing during the convention in some far off obscure nation. Was she busy dubbing sound tracks to this trailer?
