How timing of film on SEAL raid to get Osama could backfire on Obama
The Washington Times ^ | October 09, 2012 | Michael Warren

(Snip:)

More guarded about their intentions are those behind “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden,” a new film about the 2011 military raid that killed the terrorist mastermind, which is set to debut on the National Geographic Channel on Nov. 4, two days before the election. The following day, the movie will be available on Netflix.

To judge from the action-packed, heart-thumping trailer, “SEAL Team Six” promises to be a well-produced movie intended to appeal to anyone who was gripped by the news stories about the intelligence officials who planned the raid and the elite soldiers who executed it. But given President Obama’s highly publicized role in approving the operation, some suspect the movie, which is being distributed by proud Obama supporter Harvey Weinstein, will function in effect as an “in-kind contribution” to the president’s re-election campaign.

National Geographic denies politics played a role in its decision to air the film so close to the election. Mr. Weinstein has remained silent about his intentions, but the veteran Hollywood producer and studio boss, who has hosted plenty of star-studded fundraisers for Mr. Obama, no doubt hopes the film will remind audiences of the administration’s greatest success — killing the man behind the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

But if Mr. Weinstein hopes to influence the election with the timing of his movie, he could be in for a disappointment.

Remember, for starters, that many progressives despise Mr. Obama’s Bush-like continuation of the war on terrorism, so the movie might actually help depress the president’s liberal base in a critical, close election. Swing voters might negatively react to any attempt to use the story of the raid as a political tool, especially as Mr. Obama himself continues to trumpet his

This could start riots around the world....but perhaps that is the plan. Obama is crazy.

I don’t really see how another film to be released in December will be cause of a backfire against this one—until it is too late.

I’ve been on a ME forum for years, people don’t realize how closely they monitor everything that goes on here, as they have the advantage of speaking English. It pissed them off when the Obamist posse kept boasting about bin Laden at the DNC, though they aren’t terrorists per se, they would no doubt join the nutters in protesting which as we all know leads to burning, raping, pillaging, and raping kinda like the occupiers when one comes to think about it. Maybe they had the same coaches.

Still I’d be more pissed if they didn’t show it for fear of ruffling the feathers of the sensitive ones.

Middle East, one learns a lot about their tactics, and of course, they lie like the Obamist. I liked to keep them straight. :)

“This could start riots around the world....but perhaps that is the plan. Obama is crazy.”

The release of the movie doesn’t really make sense unless you believe that Obama is either “crazy” or intentionally trying to further inflame the ME. After all, isn’t HE the one who tried to placate the muslims with a speech at the UN and the $70,000 ad campaign with Hillary (for Pakistan and other nations)?

I’m not sure how a rational person would think that showing a movie (bragging) about killing one of their “esteemed” leaders would be considered NOT inflammatory.

For what my lowly opinion is worth, I believe he is desperately working the Middle East to a point of no return before he has to leave office in January.

Thanks, sorry just wasn’t registering.

BTW, great tagline! Sanger is an all time heroine of the left, but in reality a low-life racist, eugenicist, etc, etc.

I was going to make a snarky remark about what she might be doing right now, but I find it difficult to make light of God’s judgement on the wicked.

“While abroad in 1914-15, Mrs. Sanger added spice to her life history by a liaison with the notorious Havelock Ellis, who, with Ethical Culture leader Percival Chubb, had been a principal organizer of the socialistic Fabian Society of Great Britain. Ellis was a sexual pervert and drug user, who, with a circle of fellow leftists, pioneered in the experimental use of hallucinogens in private orgies.” Ibid. 325.

29. “Ellis was clearly a pathological case. He urged his wife into Lesbianism and drug addiction…Ellis finally drove his wife into a state of mental collapse, which became complete when he wrote to her about his intimate relationships with Margaret Sanger.” Ibid. 325

I’ve looked into the Fabian Socialists of London in the late 18th early 19th c. Eleanor Marx (dtr Karl) was one, the Webbs (started the London school of economics), Virgina Wolf and husband, Anna Beasant follower of Helena Petrova Blavatsky [Bailey apparently copied some of her stuff), GB Shaw, Aleister Crowley was a member before he went into his Golden Dawn thing, Havilock Ellis, Lord Byron (the very understated John Ruskin, (Cecil Rhodes and the Young Raphaelles mentor- think he also influenced Ghanda) mentor encouraged and financed them, and many other poets, painters, writers, many more were involved. When one goes back to their ancestors one sees that the occult-sexual deviant acts was passed down for generations. That Sanger had a relationship with Ellis says everything about her. When Trotsky visited the Socialists in NYC, even he was revolted, and that’s saying something. It’s the maggot infested underbelly of the NWO which is why they’re pushing for anything goes because it’s what they themselves do. The Lucis Trust, the UN, and the Bailey’s are a case in point.

Bottomline: GK Chesterton, and Hilaire Belloc had their hands full in countering them. GK mainly countered GB Shaw. And, of course, up until today the intellectual elite are questioning, when all else fails), whether they were anti-Semetic which proves they were successful. And we carry on the good work here at FR.

I guess all that had to get out...your fault. :)
