No, this the REAL face of liberals. They hate America. At least here, they're open about it.

I think I'm going to start to be in the liberals face about whatever The United States of America does is ALWAYS right and good. God is on our side, and as long as we keep praying in school, God will protect us.

Studio Canal and Vivendi are French companies. Not that anyone is surprised...

By God, I think you are right. Even when it means embracing the monstrous and the murderous, they belly right up. Like Lincoln Steffens praising Stalin from the rooftops 60 years ago, or Susan Sontag proclaiming the Caucasian race the cancer of world humanity....these people are eaten up with their odium of us.

Unbelievable.

The beauty of what is going on in the world today is the tares cannot hide among the wheat anymore. They are reaching maturity and their true intentions cannot be hid. In other words, the sheep costume won't fit the wolves anymore. Another sign we are at the end of the "time of the Gentiles" and the beginning of the "day of the Lord".

Matt 13
24 Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.
36 Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;
38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;
39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
40 As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.
41 The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
42 And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
43 Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

Sounds like the wicked are the ones who will be removed, not a "raptured" church.

Vivendi is on its death bed anyway. This film could well kill it.

It won't kill Viacom, but it could take a big chunk out of Sumner Redstone's net worth.

The U.S. and Israel are democracies, their governments are elected by their people - thus it is legitimate to attack their people."

I've never read a more compelling argument for imposing a global "PAX AMERICANUS". World peace at the barrel of a US gun.

"Vivendi"

Everything can be summed up by saying:

Damned Frogs.

Everytime they do something stupid, the more I realize we should have let the Nazis keep the spithole of a nation. The Euros deserve the French. Thank God we have an ocean to keep the stench of that nation far away.

Agreed. And since the Euros think it's so cute, we should strip search every citizen entering the U.S. from any EU nation. Make them feel like the Arab terrorists they love so much. And to make an example of the peace you endorse as do I, I think we should tell the French to go ahead and surrender to the Germans again. They deserve nothing less.

I regret that at present Britain is an EU nation. I hope you do not intend this policy towards us.

For the most part, I agree with you. Sadly, I fear what will happen when the next PM from the Labour Party is in charge, or what will happen if a Liberal Democrats becomes PM. I hope that the likes of George Monibot don't speak for most in the UK, but I'm not so sure that is the case...

"....Sounds like the wicked are the ones who will be removed, not a "raptured" church....."

Actually, this passage gives a lot of credibility to what the Jehovah Witnesses teach; that is, that the Kingdom is already here, it must be purified and cleansed.

Jesus never said anyone had to die to go to heaven. He said that the Kingdom is within you. It's a matter of degree of yielding to the Holy Spirit.

I don't really consider Britain part of the EU. The citizens there do not seem to wish to stay in, nor support the union.

If you get another liberal into power, which sadly the UK probably will, then all bets are off. I fear another Chamberlain in your future, and when England is attacked by the terrs, the new government will probably try to purchase peace in our time.

There will not be a Liberal PM in my lifetime. That I am sure of. Unless the Labour Party truly has a heart attack and keels over dead, it's impossible.

The next Prime Minister will be Conservative, and I am reasonably sure it will be Iain Duncan Smith, a former soldier. His honest demeanour contrasts nicely with a Tony Blair that no one trusts.

Polls still show consistent majorities for not joining the Euro and indeed leaving the EU.

Ivan, I truely hope that soon there is a voter backlash against the pro-EU members of your government. It's the only way to save your great nation. You have to get out of the EU, we have to get out of the UN.

Being out of the EU hasn't hurt Norway and Switzerland; it will not hurt us. I think that as the Euro progressively fails, the desire to leave the EU will strengthen.

Viacom, is sponsoring the flick's red-carpet premiere in Toronto on Sept. 11.

I see a subtle but insidious message here...

One person interviewed by Chahine in the film reportedly remarks, "The U.S. and Israel are democracies, their governments are elected by their people - thus it is legitimate to attack their people."

Another zinger, a stroke of genius!
If this "logic" is taken at face value, we could never attack Iraq.
The hair-raising thing is, many doo-gooders see this as a perfectly moral and ethical position.

Scary.

Let's not fall into the trap of placing all the blame on the Euroweenies and other foreignweenies. There's plenty of "Americans" involved in the production and distribution of this film.

"...the sheep costume won't fit the wolves anymore..."

The parable, as with all things from Y'shua, is perfect in ways we discover only slowly. The black hair protruding from the seams in the white lambskin is too obvious. The only hope for the wolf is misdirection (twas ever thus). His voice must become increasingly strident and his finger ever longer in directing the attention of the onlookers elsewhere. "There! Over there! They are the evil ones!" Hence the Hebrew, Ha Satan - the Adversary, the Accuser.

Deception is a hallmark of this age. Matt 24: '...to deceive even the elect, if that were possible.'

Blessings on Freepers Everywhere.

Any conservative who uses Viacom after this thread is an Islamakazis abettor and supporter.

Go to Dish.com and get rid of your ViaCom cable.

This is proof that the Opecker Princes have great allies in the left wing media clymers like Viacom and Studio Canal, the Vivendi-Universal subsidiary. Both firms need an America boycott as well as any actors who got their 40 pieces of silver in 9/11 blood money.

The Euroweinies are going to be a heck of a lot of fun to watch if, in fact, Hussein & terrorist groups decide to actually use them in some fashion to further their cause. The EU seems to think that if they cower down sufficiently and keep their mouths shut except to bash the USA, the bad guys won't give them wedgies & take their milk money.

Yeppa, who they gonna call when terrorists tell them to bend over & grab their ankles? The UN? LMAO!!!

I don't know if its a language bias, but of the countries I truly like, all of them are English speaking, and/or have a steeped history with the English (British) Culture. USA, England (All the Isles), Australia, Canada, and maybe throw in much of civilized India.

As for the rest of em, well they often piss me off and are difficult to suffer sometimes (often?). Note, I am speaking as a person born of parents who come from the non-english speaking world.

"At the Toronto International Film Festival, "11'09"01" is receiving a gala North American premiere sponsored by Viacom through its Paramount Pictures, Showtime and Canadian Famous Players theaters subsidiaries."

President Bush, call your investigative units to hunt and bring down these terrorist loving scum.

And furthermore, isn't Viacom a big time contributor to Mrs. Clinton as well as the company that advanced her $10M for her book?

The infamous "Third Way". Quite similar to how Bill Clinton got elected and then re-elected.
