Remember the brave United Flight 93 passengers who foiled Islamic terrorists’ attempt to fly their plane into the Capitol or, perhaps, even the White House on 9/11? Well, Mark Wahlberg thinks he’s braver than they and the others who died that day on three other planes.
The moronic actor, in an interview in the February issue of Men’s Journal, reminds us why actors should STFU AND ACT.
On being scheduled to be on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center
“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’”
PUH-LEEZE. This coddled actor would have been crying on the cellphone to his family like everyone else. They had no choice. The people on the planes that went into the World Trade Center towers wanted to live and didn’t know this was going to happen. The ones on Flight 93, who learned of their fate on cellphone conversations with their families, did the best anyone could have done under the circumstances, unarmed and facing men with boxcutters and fake bombs that passengers believed were real.
Nobody really knows what they would do in a situation like that . . . until they’re actually in that situation. (Remember the Kitty Genovese murder, when all the neighbors saw everything and did nothing?) And the same goes for this spoiled actor. One of the first men the 9/11 hijackers murdered on the planes going into the Towers was Daniel M. “Danny” Lewin, a former member of Israel’s elite, top-secret strategic counterterrorism unit, Sayeret Matkal. I’d bet the punk Wahlberg, who isn’t anywhere as skilled or tough against real-life bad guys, would have met the same fate much more quickly, with “a lot of blood in that first-class cabin,” indeed: his.
Yes, Wahlberg did take an innocent Vietnamese immigrant’s eye out with a meat hook when he robbed the man’s store and tried to murder him (for which he did some time). But I would bet that the men on United 93 and the other flights that day were mostly tougher and mentally stronger than this overpaid bloviator who uses mostly stuntmen for his silver screen “bravery.” They said, “Let’s Roll!” and did something. Cameras rolling ain’t hardly the same thing.
Again, yet another example of why Hollywood needs to SHUT UP AND ACT.
