Universal Studios shocking show defames Romney, praises Obama
BizPacReview.com ^ | October, 10, 2012 | Marla Knowles

Florida voters need to know about the appalling attempts by Universal Studios in Orlando to influence the November election in favor of President Obama. Since the park hosts more than 6 million visitors a year, about 500,000 per month -- maybe double that during Halloween Horror Nights throughout October -- this isn’t a campaign to be taken lightly.

I went to Halloween Horror Nights last weekend and was shocked that Universal was using its amusement park as a political platform to reach the masses in favor of Obama and to slam Republican contender Mitt Romney in a show called “Bill and Ted’s Adventure.”

We went to the show thinking it was going to be centered on a movie by the same name. We had no idea its premise had an election theme. But at first, we thought it was going to be OK, since it was Bill and Ted who were running for election. Instead, though, the “show” turned into a 40-minute campaign rally for Obama, defaming Romney.

Time to put Hollywood out of business. Don’t patronize the enablers and their sponsors. I’m starting by canceling comcast.

The entertainment industry’s attempt to influence (outward and subliminally) political direction is criminal. When we finally pull the plug on these bastards, it will get ugly.

A total boycott of Hollywood is long overdue. These amoral purveyors of Leftist propaganda rake in multi-millions in a time of economic depression. This should stop.

I’m so sick of these liberal fascists. They infect everything. They try and bully everyone. And they expect you to pay them for it!

Or, you could support conservative studios such as mine :) we just produced a G-rated, pro-freedom doc called “Rockin’ the Wall “ about rock music’s part in undermining communism. It will begin airing on . . PBS(!!) this month: www.rockinthewall.com.

One of the wisest business business quotes of our time was by an athlete...“Republicans buy shoes, too.” How stupid of Universal to do something like this.

I’ve boycotted Hollywood for at least 30 years now—(although I did lapse a few years back to see Mama Mia). I also watch very little TV.

Life does go on without these things.

FR is more entertaining than anything else—LOL!

Boycott, yes, that is one way but your message has to be very wide to make any kind of effect. Limbaugh is the natural for this but the tea party groups in Orlando can also start a protest campaign with all the tricks the left used for so many years.

The entrances to Universal are all on public roads with public sidewalks and right of ways. Get organized and start the campaign 24/7 with signs large enough to read as visitors are on their way to the entrances. Get the proper protest permits and Universal will immediately cave.

Thank you for at least not buying the rope they are hanging US with.

How many more times can they call murder, greed, and lust entertainment before people figure it out?

They should talk to Oprah about what happens to entertainers who embrace Obama.

If you thought “Oprah Who?”, that demonstrates the point.

Not surprising - it’s a sister company to NBC. Who wouldn’t expect the corporate structure that spawned msnbc would infect its other properties too?

Universal Studios is a division of NBCUniversal which is own by GE.

GE is a major recipient of Obama Regime cash and its CEO Jeffrey Immelt is a crony capitalist stooge and close ally of Obama.

Isn’t that the Indianapolis Castleton Mall?

I was there that morning, after all the commotion. My kids wanted to go shopping and I didn’t know sh!t about any new Nike shoe release. Crazy. That mall is Thugville and Little Mexico now.

I wish there was more info of who is paying Obama, because then we can see up front who to avoid, be it Universal Studios or buying any GE product.

One website that has it all, and better yet a smartphone app, so when shopping you can scan a device and if your app says its from a company that supports communism you then have a choice to show your individual consumer rights.

I just checked and you're half right:

"Comcast Corporation is the majority owner of NBCUniversal with a 51% interest. GE holds a 49% interest." Link: Who Owns What (Columbia Journalism Review)

And Comcast's record on Obama Regime crony capitalism:

"Comcast Execs Gave Large Donations to Obama and Democrats"

"Comcast Endorses ObamaCare as Congress Scrutinizes NBC Deal"

And of course:

Want to know how desperate the Dems are to indoctrinate people?

We are good friends with a couple in South Carolina.

He is a pastor and his wife is a stay at home Mom.

She was outside and a strange woman came up to her and wanted to give her an instructional DVD for her husband so he could "ethically" use his pulpit to tell people how to vote.

The woman actually used the word "ethically."

Being a good Christian lady, she instructed the woman as to where the DVD might best be inserted.

I had no idea Universal was a bit “Blue”. Not really a family environment. By the way, here is the audio link to the Obama/Romney Rap mentioned above.

Hopefully it is still working, but may go away once the freeper traffic hits!

“The entertainment industry’s attempt to influence (outward and subliminally) political direction is criminal.”

So, political speech by private parties is criminal, is that what you’re saying?

I hope the EBT leeches feel right at home at Universal Studios, now and after it closes down, until of course, the bulldozers chase them out.

Wow.
Looks just like the scenes in Indianapolis, and I guess just about everywhere else across America.

I googled “Nike Shoe Riot Indianapolis” and got stories and pictures from our Lafayette Square (ghetto) mall AND the Castleton (now a ghetto) mall.

In the videos, a few people fall and get trampled. Loved it. Look forward to more of this nonsense, as long as I’m carrying my Glock 23.

Word to the Republicans: When you are in power, direct the FCC to reinstate its broadcast ownership rules, that would effectively break up the “big seven” media oligopoly in the US.

That is, while the FCC can only regulate broadcasting, if a company broadcasts, the FCC in the 1970s directed that they could not *also* own newspapers, different kinds of broadcasting in the same market, etc.

The new version of these rules needs to grow to include the Internet, media production, etc. If a company broadcasts, it must be limited in its control over other media, to prevent such inhibition of the first amendment via oligopoly that exists today.

Seriously, it would do the US a world of good to break up The Walt Disney Company, News Corporation, Time Warner, Viacom, CBS Corporation, NBCUniversal, and Sony Corporation of America.

And it would be payback for decades of liberal and leftist MSM attacks on Republicans and conservatives, the military, America and its culture. They have no hesitation in attacking us, so we must respond in kind.

I like that. You are correct. I am surprised that this woman is the only one that complained.
