Why the left might stop carping about Act of Valor
Turns out the villain behind a plot 100x worse than 911 — the man who tortures and kills CIA agents and helps fund and facilitate jihadist smuggling — is a manipulative, drug-smuggling, American-hating Jew who uses reluctant Filipino Muslims as pawns.
I haven’t yet seen the film, and frankly, I’m not sure now why I would. There’s artistic license, and then there’s the sad fact that a movie heavily touted for its realistic depictions of the SEALS — played by actual SEALS — decided to cast as America’s enemy a rich and filthy Jew who is the brains behind a terror network potentially far more destructive than Al Qaeda.
And the question is, why? Did they think that doing so would blunt calls that the movie was anti-Muslim? And if so, did they not consider that such a decision might concern those who right now see our country increasingly more amenable to our enemies than to our longtime allies?
Maybe it’s because I read too much Carl Cameron or Justin Raimondo in the early wake of the 911 attacks — where Israeli spies and suspicious Jewish “students” of all sort were spotted in and around the attack sites — but I can’t help but feel that what’s at work here is a pointed political statement that will play well to the Ron Paul newsletter crowd, where the real enemy America faces comes not from Muslim terrorists but rather from monied Jews always and forever operating in the shadows.
But time will tell. Maybe the early reports are exaggerating the outrage. And like I said, I haven’t seen the film. All I know of it was from what I’ve been receiving in my inbox today.
Still, I’ll wait for a $1 Red Box rental. In the meantime, if I find myself craving a greedy Jew villain, I’ll go back and read an early edition of Oliver Twist.
That always seems to hit the spot!
