I’ve had to correct the mindless sheeple today who love Ellen, even when she’s immoral and despicable.

There are many valid reasons why a huge number of Americans–and global citizens–consider George W. Bush a war criminal, despite Hollywood liberals trying to resuscitate his image.

  • The war on Iraq killed over a million people by some very credible estimates
  • The war on Iraq was an illegal breach of the UN Charter
  • The UN Charter is based on the Nuremberg Principles, for which the Nazis were hanged in 1946 for Crimes Against the Peace
  • Bush and company lied to the UN and to the Congress and to the American people about bogus Iraqi “ties to Al Qaeda” and “Weapons of Mass Destruction” they knew did not exist

Ellen wants to know nothing about this reality and instead spins George W. as someone with a different “political opinion.” In Ellen / Hollywood Neoliberal land there are no crimes from politicians–unless your name is Trump, apparently, and all is forgiven after enough of the audience forgets about it. It’s not a matter of right and wrong, but a matter of demographics.

Ellen DeGeneres is an apologist for war crimes, empire, and “American Exceptionalism.” Like other comedians who are allowed into the big money club, she has shown her true colors. Morality be damned, like those million dead and 4 million refugees displaced in that one war crime: one of many.

Ellen has become complicit now actively selling Bush and therefore legitimizing his crimes in the minds of her ignorant audience. She has willingly taken on the role of apologist. She helps turn America into a new Reich where the laws against attacking other countries do not apply and the people mindlessly cheer the next bloodletting.

PS

Ellen’s false-equivalence spin gets the Dore treatment…

So the real question is:

 

How many approve of fascism,

or are too stupid to know the difference?

The more crap I read from Bigelow and Boal…

…the better Leni Riefenstahl looks in comparison.  After all the German filmmaker was merely being patriotic and supportive of her government.  She did not endorse, or worse — make light of — the torture of human beings.  The Nazi enterprise was in its infancy at the production of Triumph of the Will, prior to the atrocities we think of today.

Boal and Bigelow have no such defense.

“…Mark Boal, also a “Zero Dark Thirty” producer, accepting the prize for Best Film. Boal tackles the torture debate more directly, but not before having some fun with it. “‘Apparently, the French government will be investigating the accuracy of ‘Les Mis,'” he cracked, before noting that he and Bigelow had been eager to comment on the situation. ‘Some of you may have wondered if we would have liked to comment on that coverage,’ he added. ‘The answer is yes.” His position? “If anybody’s asking, we stand by the film.'”

Complete disregard for the accurate charges of fabricating a case for torture and of filming CIA lies as truth.  These Good Germans put Riefenstahl to shame.  These are the words of shameless, loathesome propagandists without consciences.

Naomi Wolf called out Bigelow in The Guardian:

A letter to Kathryn Bigelow on Zero Dark Thirty’s apology for torture

“By peddling the lie that CIA detentions led to Bin Laden’s killing, you have become a Leni Riefenstahl-like propagandist of torture”

While Naomi Wolf makes this categorical comparison, I’m ready to go one further and say these two, pictured above, are sufficiently worse than Riefenstahl and her pro-German government propaganda film.  With these ugly Americans  presenting America’s actions to the world, and lavishly praised by “critics” around the nation, no one should be wondering “why they hate us” for quite some time to come.
