hollywood reporter ^ | march 21, 2014 | erik hayden

Posted on 03/21/2014 6:28:13 PM PDT by lowbridge

President Barack Obama is set to deliver remarks and receive an honor presented by Steven Spielberg at a USC Shoah Foundation event, the organization said Friday.

The event, the 20th Anniversary Ambassadors for Humanity Gala, will be held May 7 in Los Angeles. The president is also expected to attend at least one fundraiser for the Democratic party while he is in town, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. 

"President Obama’s commitment to democracy and human rights has long been felt," said Spielberg in a statement announcing the news. "As a constitutional scholar and as president, his interest in expanding justice and opportunity for all is remarkably evident."

how is it that somebody who is so talented in one field of endeavor can be so incredibly blind in another?
his comments about O sound like he’s been viewing too many sci fi movies (watching what’s going on in some alternate universes...the exact opposite of ours?)

Total BS. Does Bammy know that Spielberg is a Jew? Does Spielberg know that Bammy is a (closet) Muslim?

Hey, Stevie? Loved ‘Schindler’s List’ (Schindler’s Ark) and visited all of the places it was filmed. When are you going to do one on the Holodomor? What’s that? You’re not? Figures.

And he’s also quite the drinker..had a friend whose husband used to be a valet driver, who comes out of the restaurant drunk as hobo, but Steven Spielberg, and he’s not a happy drunk, he’s an angry bitter drunk

And as we saw how much Obozo deserved the Nobel Prize, this also does not surprise.

It looks like the comment board at Big Hollywood. Or maybe mainstream entertainment sees Obama for the anti-Semite that he is. I’m up for that.

This isn't just funny or sad or absurd. It is downright evil.

Obama is doing his best to hand Israel over to the "Palestinians".

How can any self-respecting Jew award any honor, especially this one, to such an abominable human being?

Obama is Israel’s greatest enemy and tragically everyone there knows it.
Israel is Obama’s greatest enemy and sadly Obama knows it.
This has become absolutely ridiculous:
I was in Tel Aviv when the rockets rained down last summer.
What would you have done, Michelle? Would you have been there?
And you Barack Hussein? With whom would you have stood?
Hollywood directors don’t matter.
Where are your hearts...?
DOES IN NOT MATTER THAT AN AMERICAN CAN ASK?

F SPEIL. He represents a retarded, miniscule and misled leftist portion of Jewry in market 1 and 3, andf he has gotten louder as Jews show their disgust. And is he a Jew? Has he been to synagogue lately? No, most likely to a global warming conference. Please show pity on the diverse and wandering Red Sea pedestrian.

He’s a “Cultural Jew”, meaning an atheist.

Since 2000, Spielberg has been a director or producer on 54 film and TV projects. They’ve all failed at the box office or in the ratings except these: Lincoln; Transformers; Super 8; Transformers; Men in Black II; Jurassic Park III; and Band of Brothers.

Admit you hated all these except Band of Brothers.

That’s it. That’s his best work since 2000. And he didn’t direct any of them except “Lincoln,” which was terrible and only a modest box office hit.

It’s Hollywood blasphemy to say it, but as a successful financial or creative director, he’s done.

Have a acquaintance that appeared in his “Tales of the Shoah” a while ago. I wonder what she thinks of him now?

You left out Minority Report, Catch Me If You Can, War of the Worlds, Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. All of which he directed and did well.

I wonder if he will have an "ETTU BRUTTUS" in there somewhere in his speech?

Spielberg graduated from Long Beach State, same as me. For all he is worth he contributes very little or nothing to the school, from what I can tell.

What? Obama has done zip for Jews or Israel! He may have even given her enemies the tools for a new Shoah. As we speak—Iran may well be fitting out a 777 Jet with a nuke to fly to Israel and take out a city! Sick, dumb, bootlicker—these are the words that come to mind.
