Can Movies Kill?

An excellent article from Bill O’Reilly and billoreilly.com.

“Coming to a theatre near you this autumn—a slew of films critical of America. That’s just great, isn’t it? We have about 200,000 men and women presently in combat zones, and a bunch of far-left Hollywood loons want to denigrate the country.

Loon number one is Brian de Palma, who has directed films such as “The Untouchables” and “Scarface.” His new movie, “Redacted,” focuses on U.S. soldiers who rape an Iraqi woman and murder her family.

The film is based on a real-life event that has resulted in three soldiers being tried, convicted, and sent to prison for life.

Yet DePalma wants the world to see this horror in living color. He wants this for political reasons, as he freely admits. Speaking before journalists in Italy, DePalma said: “The movie is an attempt to bring to reality what’s happening in Iraq to the American people … the pictures are what will stop the war.”

Here’s how stupid that statement is: Overwhelmingly, American forces in Iraq have behaved with restraint and are trying to protect Iraqi civilians from terrorists who blow up women and children. That is the reality, pal. Your movie takes the exception and attempts to make it the rule.”
