I will be on the “Mike Church Show” on Sirius Patriot Channel 144, today at 5:30 p.m. Eastern, to discuss the Mark Cuban-produced anti-troops movie I first reported on back in February (and everyone else on the net discovered Sunday–that means you, Drudge).
The movie, “Redacted,” by Director Brian DePalma is a fictionalized account of American troops raping an Iraqi girl. DePalma, as I’d written a half-year ago, has a history of making films that defame our troops, including those who served in Vietnam (whom he also depicted as raping a young girl). It’s disgusting. Out of many, many stories of American troops doing great things around the world, he picks a few anomalies–a few soldiers in a place where we are at war and where these things rarely happen, but do happen. Don’t expect DePalma and Cuban, though, to make a film about how Muslims rape, torture, and kill Christians and Jews, though Cuban has expressed an interest in me pitching him on an idea. And I will. We’ll see.
Listen in if you have Sirius. Read my original post on “Redacted.”
