Weekend Box Office: Death of a President = More Re-Birth of Islamist BS

By Debbie Schlussel
The much-hyped “Death of a President” isn’t worthy of its press. It’s a boring, silly movie that’s hardly plausible. Unless you’re a shrieking leftist who believes in all the BS about Muslims not being terrorists, but being loyal Americans who are wrongly maligned. If you’re one of those, then this is your movie.
If you want to see this movie and don’t want to find out who really killed President Bush, stop reading here. For everyone else, guess what? The assassin is not the Syrian Muslim, who trained in an Al-Qaeda terrorist training camp in Afghanistan, and was found with gun powder on his clothing.

Nope, the gun powder was on his clothing “by coincidence,” he trained at the terror camp because he’s a peaceful guy who thought the camp was just about learning more about Islam (the same excuse everyone who trains there uses when they get caught), and he’s just an innocent hard-working Syrian Muslim American patriot. Why, even his hijab-encrusted wife tells us she “cried for three days” after the 9/11 attacks and that the first thing she learned in English was the American National Anthem.
No, predictably, the assassin of the Prez is not the wrongly-convicted, innocent, peace-loving, Al-Qaeda trainee Syrian. It’s a Black American Vietnam Vet whose two sons fought in Iraq, one of whom was killed there. Of course, a Vietnam Vet or parent of kids serving or slain in Iraq would murder the President. Gee, why didn’t we think of that?
In “Death,” despite all the evidence that the vet is the killer, Congress has passed Patriot Act III, and the innocent Muslim is still in prison, easily convicted with no chance of getting out. And no-one will look at the evidence, including a suicide note apologizing for killing the Prez, that the Black American left behind. We’re also told that President Cheney is itching to go to war with Syria over this.
That’s the gist of this absurd movie, which is told documentary-style. The chubby, red-headed woman who plays Bush’s speechwriter, resembles the excessively fawning former George H.W. Bush speechwriter and friend of Oprah, Peggy Noonan, in a lot of ways. The movie version of her endlessly gushes BSingly over President Bush just as the real-life version does.
Other than that, this film bears no resemblance to reality. And should bear no claim on the time and money you’ll have wasted watching it.
Mark Cuban, whose Landmark Theaters are showing the film nationwide, told me he’s proud that he’s showing the movie. That should tell you a lot about him. Maybe, one day, he’ll show a movie where Muslims–as in real life–are actually the terrorists, and the movie doesn’t ask you to sympathize with them a la his “The War Within.”
And maybe, one day, a snowball will have a chance in hell.

You know what it is? provocative = $$$.
What does mark cuban care about? $$$
I don’t think he knows about much else outside of how to manage/spend/and make money though.(that guys made some great choices financially!)

It’s more of the same LIBERAL tripe.
Of course the real killer is a crazed, post-traumatic stress disorder, Nam vet. After all, all soldiers are blood-thirsty, deranged lunatics. Yet, the LIBERALS always tell you that they’re patriotic and that they love our soldiers. LMFAO!!!!
Throw in a maligned, shafted, America-loving Muzlum (total fiction) who’s been railroaded by crazed, bloodthirsty, American law enforcement and you have a recipe for a major, Oscar-winning motion picture. Even though it’s “FICTION”, it’s totally UNBELIEVABLE FICTION. “Total Recall” is more believable than this shit.
This is just more of the same anti-Bush, anti-war psychosis wrapped in celluloid. So, what’s new?

Does the Mahdi reveal himself via subliminal message as an added bonus?

ISLAMSFORLOSERS on October 27, 2006 at 11:13 am

While i agree this is complete shit, you know it’s a british film, right?

FSM-FTW!(descent) on October 27, 2006 at 11:15 am

I meant to add that perhaps we should make one about the death of the queen?

FSM-FTW!(descent) on October 27, 2006 at 11:15 am

Cuban cares about $$$, but he also cares about publicity as much.
I think this is a very good thing, even this will quickly disappear as it looks and sounds stupid, and worst of all, BORING!
It’s good in that all the pinko lefties are coming out of the woodwork yet again because they think they smell blood in the water. They think the complete country hates Bush and the Republicans like they do and they are putting out junk like this to rile up the hatred of Bush. What they never, ever realize is normal Americans hate these elitists smugly trying to tell us what to think. I disagree with a lot of Bush/Repubs, but I don’t loathe them like I do creeps like Michael Moore, Streisand, etc.
So, thank you lefty Hollywood and please, please! hurry up and show that Dixie Chunks film, too. Whiny Natalie & Co. will surely keep the Repubs in office.

It’s America haters’ alternative way of blowing off steam.
The original way is to destroy America and kill her president, for real!
Sick bastards!

Jeff, the left didn’t make this, the brits, did, and it was an independent film, and only picked up financing for american distribution after it was shown at the toronto film fest.
Also, the company that picked it up for distribution? Yeah, they also distributed passion of the christ.
So, while lefties may enjoy that it WAS made, they didn’t have much of hand in it’s production/us distrobution.

descent;
Gabriel Range, the British writer and director of this movie, along with Simon Finch, co-writer, are flaming LIBERALS. Didn’t you realize that the LEFT is very active in Europe? Didn’t you realize that the LIBERALS in Europe hate G.W. Bush just as much as your LIBERAL friends here in the U.S.? The fact of the matter is, is that LIBERALS wrote and directed this movie.
As far as Newmarket (the distribution company) is concerned; all they want out of this charade is the money. They have no ideological bend. They knew that Passion was going to make a ton of money and they jumped at it. Newmarket jumped on this one because, like The Passion, nobody picked it up. However, unlike Passion, this movie won’t earn them squat!
So, yet again, it is the LOONEY LEFT that so hate Bush that they made a wet-dream-of-a-movie that envisions what they hope for.
BTW, RottenTomatoes.com rates this film with a 36% – meaning: the movie is a bomb.
LMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thee_Bruno on October 27, 2006 at 1:21 pm

Oh, trust I figured that being british that they’re left leaning, i was referring to involvement from american liberals. And of course newmarket will distribute two films that contrast so much, like you said, all they want is money.

Mark Cuban proves that you don’t need any intelligence to be rich. Move over Oprah and
Ted Turner.

I saw a clip of the film on O’Reilly and what stood out to me was pictures of Chicago cops beating anti-Bush demonstrators senseless with nightsticks. Obviously, we are supposed to recall Chicago, 1968. Heaveeee, man.
Of course, any police who did that today in real life would have their collective a** sued off. The NYPD was successfully sued after the 2004 convention by a bunch of lefty loons because the cops dared arrest them for violent behavior. Go figure….
