Naomi Wolf Compares 'Zero Dark Thirty' Filmmaker to Nazi Propagandist Leni Riefenstahl
Big Hollywood ^ | 6 Jan 2013, 7:35

Posted on 01/06/2013 3:51:23 PM PST by drewh

The Left's battle against "Zero Dark Thirty" continues, but this time the Oscar-winning director of the film is being called far worse than an apologist for "torture." A trio of senators previously critiqued the minds behind the movie, detailing the hunt for Osama bin Laden, for daring to suggested enhanced interrogation tactics helped nab the terrorist leader.

Now, progressive critic Naomi Wolf is comparing Bigelow to the Nazis' premier propagandist.

In a time of darkness in America, you are being feted by Hollywood, and hailed by major media. But to me, the path your career has now taken reminds of no one so much as that other female film pioneer who became, eventually, an apologist for evil: Leni Riefenstahl. Riefenstahl's 1935 Triumph of the Will, which glorified Nazi military power, was a massive hit in Germany. Riefenstahl was the first female film director to be hailed worldwide....Like Riefenstahl, you are a great artist. But now you will be remembered forever as torture's handmaiden.

Lighten up Naomi. Take a deep breath and try to relax.

1. I won’t go see this movie.
2. Read “No Easy Day” instead (I did)

Who? I’m pretty familiar with Leni Whatshisname but where did this Naomi person come from?

She’s just upset that the film does not portray Obama as bringing bin Laden to justice by offering him milk and cookies.

Stick with giving fashion advice, Wolf.

Very strange. During the campaign, Obama was boasting about the Obama capture (although he clearly had next to nothing to do with it, and had actually halted them once before, IIRC), but now it seems to have been dropped into the Obama Memory Hole and now it’s all the EEEEEVIL GEORGE BUSH.

It’s good to be hated by the right people.

I absolutely hated “Hurt Locker.” This one certainly can’t be any worse.

Naomi Wolf is the Sandra Fluke of her generation.

Let’s hope such a disgruntled lesbian as Wolfe is never put in charge of US foreign affairs. Oops too late.

Trying to make herself look intellectual. Epic fail.

She’s a feminist, but I don’t find anything about her being a lesbian.

She does, however, sound like a POS.

Riefenstahl was one of the greatest filmmakers of all time. To be compared to her should be a great complement.

It’s Bush’s fault that we had the information with which to take out Bin Laden.

The clock is still ticking on apprehending those who killed our ambassador in Libya. Brakbrak swore he’d get the ones responsible to pay for their actions.

How’s that manhunt going? Oh wait, no Bush-era intelligence to draw from.

“Now, progressive critic Naomi Wolf is comparing Bigelow to the Nazis’ premier propagandist.”

Two thoughts:

-Glad to see Goddard’s Law holds as true as ever.

-Camille Paglia once said something to the effect of “Naomi Wolf is the poster child for everything that is wrong in Ivy League education today.” Can’t say I disagree with her.

Naomi Wolf is one of Joe Biden’s favorite three letter words, “NUTS”. Pure and simple, leftist ahole par excellance.

She should be so lucky as to get as much as F*king Fluke gets (which could include the most of the Georgetown Un. Law School). That would explain why she needed $3,000 for contraceptives. Her boyfriend would only cost about $1.50.
