I’ve already said most of what I had to say about the blatant propaganda film, “Rendition,” which debuts in theaters, today, so I’m reposting my previous post on this movie, below, to remind you, along with these other points I did not yet make about this “Traffic” for Terrorists movie starring newly-minted dhimmi Reese Witherspoon:
Left-wing Jake Gyllenhaal’s CIA Agent character tells us, tells his senior CIA bosses:
If you torture one person, you create ten, a hundred, a thousand new enemies.
That’s the message of this movie, which is starkly one-sided and high-quality propaganda against torturing of Islamic terrorist who want to eliminate us off the face of the planet.
It’s one of the claims of the left in its attempt to stop us from finding out information that could save Americans’ lives and has in the past. Our torture, our surveillance, or get-tough efforts that we’ve used far too little of is what saves American lives, not left-wing movies that tell us the same message Bin Laden wants us to hear– ie., that we are evil, torturous barbarians and that if we torture, we won’t get the real info on their plans. Actually, past practice has proven otherwise. It has proven some terrorists do talk, many do talk. And it has proven that if you torture one person, you save ten, a hundred, a thousand lives.
But Bin Laden and the Qaedans want us to think otherwise (just as the makers of this movie want you to think otherwise), so that their warriors have it easy. Other than that, the movie is boring, slow-going, and uses confusing timeline-jumping, flashback tricks without telling the viewer.
Here’s the rest on this extremely skipworthy movie:
Alhamdillullah [Praise Allah], Reese Witherspoon Joins the Jihad
By Debbie Schlussel (September 26, 2007)
Yesterday, I screened the upcoming propaganda release, “Rendition,” which has a didactic message against torturing of “alleged” Muslim terrorists.
Like I’ve said about so many other of these propaganda films coming out of Hollywood these days, this one, too, is high quality Bin Laden cinema. Wouldn’t be surprised if the writer, producers, and director are all card-carrying members of the ACLU Politburo. It stars Reese Witherspoon, Jake Gyllenhaal (whose homely sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, said America deserved 9/11), his “brother-in-law” (not sure what you actually call the person who fathered a kid out of wedlock with your sister, other than “scumbag”) Peter Sarsgaard (he’s the same guy who defamed Federal Air Marshals as terrorists in “Flight Plan”), Meryl Streep, and Alan Arkin.
Gone is the cute Reese Witherspoon of “Legally Blonde” days. She’s no longer the strong but feminine woman of “Sweet Home Alabama” and other films. Now, she’s a dhimmi (the status of a non-Muslim in a Muslim society)–the blonde apologist for Islamic extremists and Noam Chomsky types by lending her name and acting to this propaganda-fest. Shame on her. I thought the “Rendition” movie name and poster were not accurate. I liked my ideas far better and asked David Lunde make these two above (can’t decide which one is more accurate). Of course, since they (Muslims) hate dogs, maybe we should have shown a beheaded Chihuahua.
The gist of the movie is that an innocent Egyptian Muslim living in America is wrongly accused of being a terrorist, kidnapped by the CIA, and tortured (waterboarded, beaten, electrocuted). The Egyptian is married to Reese Witherspoon in the movie.
And she tells all who will listen that her Egyptian Muslim husband (who still is not a U.S. citizen after 20 years here) could not possibly be a terrorist because “he coaches [his son's] soccer team, has a green card, pays his taxes.” Because terrorists would never do that, right? I’m sure all those HAMAS soccer teams in Gaza are associate with HAMAS the peace group, instead of HAMAS the terrorist group.
Terrorists love this kind of movie because it makes their job easier. It softens the Oprah-cized American public and makes them scowl at torture of what are almost always real terrorists who want to kill us. Of course, in this movie, there is no not-so-innocent Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. As we know, he is not an innocent Muslim living in America. He was Al-Qaeda’s top director of terrorist planning and operations for Bin Laden who was tortured by waterboarding and other means, and because of it, we learned of terrorist plots and plans that were stopped.
The real “Rendition” movie poster, below, reads: “What If Someone You Love . . . Just Disappeared?” But it should really say: “What If Someone You Love . . . Was Just Murdered by An Islamic Terrorist Who Didn’t Disappear?”
But you won’t see that in this movie, which debuts October 19th. It’s a little too close to Halloween then to tell the real story. So instead they bring you costumes and costumed reality about innocent Muslims tortured for nothing.
We know the real story. It’s a shame Hollywood won’t tell it.
