Posted on 02/27/2012 7:01:27 PM PST by Nachum
Star of TVs Parenthood, Dax Shepard, compared the pro-U.S. military film that stars actual Navy SEALs, Act of Valor to Adolf Hitler's Triumph of the Will. On his Twitter feed the one time Ashton Kutcher prank boy from Punk'd wrote: "Saw 'Triumph of the Will' tonight, oh wait, I mean 'Act of Valor' great action." Apparently the reaction to Shepard's obnoxious tweet, comparing this week's #1 movie starring active duty Navy Seals to a Nazi propaganda movie was immediate, as he attempted to walk back his comments. Shepard lamely claimed he was: "not comparing

“Here’s the boy genius...”
How fitting, the Dork on Parenthood who “plays” a stoned Musician whom knocks up a Stripper only to find out five years later he is a Dad.
"Who Wants to Send a Message to Germany?"
“Triumph of the Will” was an astonishingly well done piece of propaganda or cinema too.
I did notice one thing interesting. When Hitler was talking to the masses, he came across as a very decent person with good goals for the German People.
Then they showed him addressing his followers in a closed auditorium and he came across as a lot more hard edged.
Leni Riefenstahl was not a Nazi, she was simply hired to make the film.
@Travesham I Loved #ActOfValor. Couldn’t wait to see it. Just because it’s good doesn’t mean it’s not propaganda.
He's about as smart as the lawyer he portrayed in Idiocracy.
Well at least he is being used to advertise the movie. I hadn’t heard of it, watch very few movies, but now might see this one.
I guess this idiot doesn’t relalize that “right wingers” USED to go to movies, etc.! Or, at least, this one did. Now I can’t stand the thought of putting money in the pockets of people who hate me.
I absolutely despise these people.
A lot of right-wingers are showing me that sense of humor that they are so famous for.
What a dim-bulb-shill
Go down the list of some of the most famous stars and this is a partial list of what you find:
MARINES: Steve McQueen, Gene Hackman, George C.Scott, Lee Marvin, Ed McMahan(fighter pilot), Sterling Hayden (OSS working with European partisans--no wonder he was a good "tough guy").
ARMY AIR CORPS: Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart, Gene Autry-all pilots, Jason Robards Jr.
NAVY: Paul Newman, Henry Fonda, Kirk Douglas, Humphrey Bogart, Robert Miontgomery, Ernest Borgnine, Nancy Kulp(secretary on Bev. Hillbillys).
ARMY: Kris Kristopherson (hcptr pilot, Army Ranger), Willie Nelson, Ron Reagan, Clint Eastwood, James Earl Jones, Elvis, Dennis Frienz, James Arness, Audy Murphy, Neville Brand.
This is only a partial list. Actors aren't what they used to be and neither is Hollywood. I really have nothing for most of them, like this wannabe slime who would be whining for his mommy before the team got started.
So let’s just imagine the premise is correct. This is similar to a nazi propaganda film.
It’s on Obama’s watch. Who does that make BO?
Now, having done that mental exercise, these hacks are just pissed because the SEAL movie is raking in the dough.
Actually “Triumph of The Will’’ was a film dedicated to the first Nuremburg Rally held in 1934 and it was made to showcase the successful coming to power of Adolph Hitler and The Nazi Party through the efforts of Hitler and the SA(the Sturmabtielung’’ hence the name of the film and it’s meaning.
You ain’t seen nothing yet. Wait till “Thunder Run- The Armored Strike To Capture Baghdad’’ comes out.
You forgot one Marine: Bob Keeshawn,aka “Cap’n Kangaroo’’. 5th. Marine Div. WW2 vet. Iwo Jima vet and Silver Star recipent and good friend of fellow actor and marine Lee Marvin.
Bob Keeshan was not at Iwo (neither was Marvin), he enlisted near the end of the war.
