Cretinous woman on British TV going on about "liberal Hollywood"...
Edited on Sat Mar-04-06 08:27 AM by kiki
"I think the reason some people in the Middle East hate us is because of the negative values portrayed in our films."

Yeah, that'd be it. Not the fact that we've been murdering them in the tens of thousands. Not the fact that torturing them is now government policy.

God, these people make me :puke:

2. Who - what programme?
Was it a news programme, or a film programme?

3. It was a movie show called Film 2006.
Didn't catch the moran (or moraness)'s name though.

4. I'd really like to hear from someone in the ME
about that concept.

They did hate us before Iraq. And of course now they have a massive reason to hate us. But I wonder to what extent Hollywood products have misrepresented us as a culture? (or perhaps represented us too accurately?)

6. In other words, she wants us to live like Muslims.
Can't they decide whether we are hated because we're so GOOD or because we're so BAD?

7. They hate us because of our movies!
What pushed the Arab World over the edge? Was it "Police Academy: Mission to Moscow" or "Gigli?"
So I guess those C-130 gunships we are sending over will be projecting soothing movies like "Curious George"
and "Winged Migration." I get it now.
