Act of Valor (2012) - Apparently Hollywood's way of catering to the Obama regime, Democratic Party P.C. crowd, in which if there is a muslim bad guy, another just has to be a Jew; they think they always have to feign equivalence in some form or they are guilty of the dreaded islamaphobia... Another side of the coin is that there are a whole bunch of left-wing Jews who do in fact aid, abet and promote the left-wing/islamic drug running, terrorist agenda directly and indirectly everyday (ie. Bill Maher's one million dollar Obama Pac donation the other day, talk about a fool's priorities), but then we all know that's probably not what the producers were getting at. My bet is that the Seals who participated are terribly embarrassed by this betrayal of their trust. John Grant at ThisCantBeHappening takes on the Navy Seals and their new propaganda film, Act of Valor:
‘I’ll let Tom Clancy, the master, establish the nature of the new feature film Act Of Valor. Clancy wrote a preface to the novelization of the Act Of Valor screenplay by Kurt Johnstad. The novelization is now on grocery store thriller and romance shelves all across the nation. Although his name is in 60-point type at the top, Clancy, who has become an industry in himself, only “presents” the book, which was actually written by Dick Couch and George Goldorisi, whose names are in much smaller type at the bottom. Here’s Clancy’s opening sentence:
“Navy SEALs are Olympic athletes that kill people for a living.”
That’s a marvel of a sentence that exploits admiration for the Olympics and the idea of athleticism at the pinnacle of excellence and then presents the killing of other human beings as the equivalent of an Olympic sport. Cool! It also establishes the reverent tone of the movie, which, as the advertising touts, is “the ultimate in action adventure … starring active-duty Navy SEALs.”’
Clancy writes that when he heard that SEAL leadership was planning this movie and popular novelization he reached out to them. It seems he had no trouble getting his crack action thriller writing team the mission to produce the novelization. This thriller, we’re told, is different from all the other assassin and serial killer thrillers on the grocery store shelf: This one is the real deal.
But is it?
There is really no way for the ordinary citizen to know if anything in the movie and book is “real” as far as what an actual Navy SEAL hunter-killer team does, because SEAL activities are so absolutely secret, especially the unpleasant, illegal and embarrassing aspects of SEAL missions. What SEALs really do is not what’s most real about this movie and book. What’s most real about the movie and the book is that they are both pure forms of pop culture propaganda mobilized in the war to occupy the American mind.
This is a shame. No doubt literally millions of people, were looking forward to seeing this movie, and now this comes to light.
I am wondering if maybe the Pentagon, and/or the DOD, are deathly afraid of Islamic terrorism. Maybe the directors/producers did want to make the bad guy a Muslim, and they were forced to change his identity. After all. Look at what is happening in Afghanistan right now, over a few stupid Korans.
Of course, they still didn't have to make him a Jew. They could have made him an Italian, a German. English. They could have made him a Christian, an Atheist, a devil worshiper.
They could have made this guy an Eskimo. Because you know how angry those crazy Eskimos get when you draw cartoons of Igloos.
And just so everyone knows. Folks who can trace their ancestry back to North Africa, and Southwest Asia are considered Caucasian. In other words, "White People!"
Lastly. I would not blame the The Seals just yet. They were probably only doing what they were ordered to do.
