- ”Bacile” is not Israeli, but only pretended to be for the purpose of soliciting production funds.
- The actors claim they didn’t know what the project was, and that the offensive lines were dubbed in later — really?
Number 2 is particularly interesting, as being ignorant of your art, its purpose and ultimate meaning may get you killed. Also I’m not sure if I believe the actors.
More on this story, and an argument for clamping down on “hate speech” is presented here. That said, I vehemently disagree about this bogus category of “hate speech,” and find such laws patently unconstitutional. What part of “… or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press … “ is ambiguous?
Such laws are used selectively against targeted defendants and tellingly NOT used against others who utter the same types of speech, decided on ideological grounds and on the sole discretion of prosecutors. That is a miscarriage of justice and quite frankly a sham.
The trailer and a good article on this insanity is linked through here. I did not post the trailer here directly for obvious reasons.
