Sony Wimps Emblematic of Obamerica; Hollywood Gave in to Muslim Terrorists Many Times w/Out Uproar

By Debbie Schlussel

Last week, Obama told military veterans not to be open about their military service online. And now a movie studio is afraid to show a movie because of threats. Welcome to the United Wimpy States of Obamerica. A nation of sheep told to be cowards instead of the proud Americans we once were and still should be. This is supposed to be America. But tell it to Sony and Barack, since they seem not to know.


Tonight at 8:00 p.m. was supposed to be the Detroit film critics screening of “The Interview.” (I’ve been largely off-line because I’ve been working hard on a number of cases, but I’m back now.) I was really looking forward to it because it’s been a long year, I’m a little burnt out, and I wanted to laugh at what would have been the last critics’ screening of the year. But, as you know, Sony gave in to terrorists. Sony caved. It sickened me that Sony would do this, but Hollywood has done this many times before without any hoopla, outrage, or commotion.

And that’s because Hollywood studios caved to Muslims and Islamic terrorists, and when the studios give in to Muslims, nobody cares (and everybody in the entertainment biz and the media approves of it). As I’ve noted on this site many, many times before, various studios have canceled movies and TV shows because of Muslim whining, threats, and other grievances, usually coming from HAMAS terrorist group CAIR. Publishers have canceled books because of it. And none of those morally outraged today get equally exercised when that happens.

I’ve written about how Comedy Central parent Viacom and the producers of “South Park” won’t ever again show the episode mocking Mohammed. They’re afraid of threatened violence from Muslims. Or so they claim. And several studios eliminated scenes or changed the identities of terrorists and criminals in response to Islamic terrorists.

Steven Spielberg changed the tone of the movie “Munich”–the self-hating movie he made condemning Israel and the Mossad for pursuing the Munich Olympic Massacre terrorists–after threats from Islamic terrorists. Filmmakers who made a movie of Tom Clancy’s “The Sum of All Fears” changed the story’s villains from Islamic terrorists to neo-Nazis. “Angels and Demons”–the second Dan Brown book and the sequel to “The Da Vinci Code”–changed a Muslim assassin into a blonde Scandinavian when it became a movie. Under pressure from Muslims, The Weinstein Companies studio changed the movie, “Crossing Over,” eliminating a scene in which a Muslim ICE agent and his brother honor-kill their sister for dating a non-Muslim. And after Muslims whined and threatened, producers changed the villains in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Collateral Damage” from Islamic terrorists to Hispanic narco-terrorists. ABC Family canceled “Alice in Arabia” before it ever aired, after demands from HAMAS CAIR.

We in America have an interesting sense of “justice.” We reward those who mass murder 3,000 Americans with censorship of any reference to them as terrorists in the movies. And now we reward North Korean cyber-terrorists similarly. They all win. We lose. Freedom loses.

But you never hear any criticism over Hollywood’s regular Islamo-pandering censorship from Rob Lowe or any of the many Hollywood celebs now upset over Sony’s cave to allegedly North Korean terrorists with regard to “The Interview.” That’s because some “censorship” is more noteworthy to them than others. Movie critic Richard Roeper whined to CBS News that this is “the first time” a Hollywood studio has canceled a movie because of threats. But it isn’t the first time it’s censored one. Like I said, Hollywood does this all the time . . . for Muslims and Islam.

I’m upset that Sony would give in to terrorist threats and cancel the release of “The Interview.” But I’ve been upset for years that it and its sister studios give in to Islamic terrorists all of the time and nobody notices.

And I’m not surprised that we’ve become such a wimpy, cowardly country that merely gives in and throws in the towel in the face of threats. Had “The Interview” remained on the Christmas movie schedule, I was going to go see it. I won’t appease terrorists, and their threats made me want to go see the movie even more (even though those who’ve seen it gave it lackluster reviews). This is America. We aren’t supposed to cower like that.

But we do. And it’s because terrorists see that we are weak and cowardly under the “leadership” (or whatever you call what he’s doing) of Barack Obama. It angered me, after the beheading of an American journalist in Yemen by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, that the Obama Administration warned current American servicemen and military vets to keep quiet about their military service and not advertise it on social media. Huh? What the hell kind of country have we become that American military men cannot say to the world (or even to fellow Americans), “I proudly served”? A dying country, that’s what kind.

This is America. Or used to be. We used to not change movies to appease Muslims and pretend that terrorists are ABMs (Anything But Muslims). We used to be proud to show controversial movies and exercise our freedoms through speech via the arts. (Apparently, you can only do that now if you are attacking Christianity and displaying crosses in urine.) We used to be proud of those who served and happy when they told us they did.

Now, we are something else: the Obama States of Wimpitude and Cowardice.

As V.I. Lenin once told his minions, dig with bayonets and if if you find steel, retreat. But if you find mush, keep digging.

In Barack Obama’s America, Muslims and North Koreans are having a non-stop digging party. The only end in sight is the end of this country. And that sight may be in the rear view mirror.

Nothing to say about how wrong you were about that commie Alan Gross? And his love of muzzies and obama?

R: I wasn’t wrong about him. But I have plenty to say about that. It’s coming next. Do you think he deserved to be imprisoned by the Cubans for 5 years for no legit reason? DS

Rambo on December 18, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    Sorry, Ms. Schlussel, you were wrong. He was not worth saving. He’s a commie, and he thought that his liberal bona fides, would give him immunity in Cuba. But his pets turned on him. Then he’s got the unmitigated gall to call the U.S. belligerent. Cuba is an outdoor prison where dissent is punishable by death. And that’s who he chose to help. Not Israel, but commie Cuba. I wouldn’t have shed one tear i he died in a Cuban prison.

    R: What is your evidence that he’s a commie? DS

    Rambo on December 18, 2014 at 4:14 pm

      Yeah, he was helping Cuba so much they imprisoned him for five years. “Turned on him?” Like all anti-Semites, complex events are always reduced to the actions of the evil Jews.

      But then, since he’s Jewish, to you he is more of a villain than the North Koreans and Muslims Debbie wrote about. Pitchfork Pat would be proud of you.

      Little Al on December 18, 2014 at 4:56 pm

      I don’t think you fact checked your allegations (slurs) against Alan Gross.I find nothing in the record to indicate that he was a Communist. Unless providing some sort of assistance to the small Jewish community in Cuba made him one.

      Jerry G on December 19, 2014 at 11:43 am

Excellent column, Debbie! One of your best in a long time. Couldn’t agree more with everything you said there. As for the movie itself, I will miss reading your scathing review of what was probably a very stupid movie. Rogen and Franco don’t exactly create masterpieces. I won’t miss not being able to see the movie.

Rick on December 18, 2014 at 4:14 pm

Well, this once again (and I’m not the least surprised by it) proves and exemplifies that Muslims who are hardliners are antithetical to freedom of speech and expression, if they knew anything about freedom of speech, they wouldn’t have been moaning and whining about some films that’s giving out facts of atrocious-terroristic acts being propagated by those of the “RoP”, and that’s why we’re seeing those in the entertainment establishment being moral-relativists by not mentioning the precise actions of those who abhor to that ideological-faith in a religious way.

Sean R. on December 18, 2014 at 4:22 pm

“We in America have an interesting sense of “justice.” We reward those who mass murder 3,000 Americans with censorship of any reference to them as terrorists in the movies. And now we reward North Korean cyber-terrorists similarly. They all win. We lose. Freedom loses.”

The thing I have the hardest time with is the fact that it’s that NK hackers were responsible for the Sony hack and obviously also the threats. Geeks – NK or otherwise – don’t have the religious mandate, stupidity, (human) resources or reach to send soldiers to die in the U.S. It was just a hacker’s prank to scare Sony and theater operators and it worked like a charm.

DS_ROCKS! on December 18, 2014 at 4:43 pm

What did people think when Obama spoke of “fundamental transformation?” Who recognizes their country from 6 years ago?

JeffT on December 18, 2014 at 4:44 pm

One of the Chicago newspapers has “The Interview” movie poster on the cover with the caption “Coming Never”.
Those in the film industry have always been cowardly in confronting the issues of the day.

PaulaMalka on December 18, 2014 at 5:13 pm

Liberals as well as conservatives seems to agree that the decision of Sony and the exhibitors to cancel “The Interview” gives in to terrorism. Among those in the Hollywood community, for example, that have spoken out against the decision to shelve the movie include Judd Apatow, Rob Lowe, Mia Farrow, Piers Morgan, Jimmy Kimmel, Michael Moore, Ben Stiller, to name a few.

But would these same people be attacking a decision to cancel a movie when the threat came from some Muslim nation or organization? I don’t think so. In other words, many on the left side have no principles, and their criticisms reflect a double standard. This should be no surprise. They only feel comfortable because the threat is coming from North Korea and it involves Kim Jong Un, not some Muslim leader.

Thus, today, you won’t see a movie where Islamic terrorists are the enemy, such as the following scene from the 1985 movie, “Back to the Future,” where the terrorist come from Libya. (Yes, I think you have to go back that for such a clear example.)

As for the attacks here on Alan Gross, I don’t understand the vitriol. The man is 65 years old and in very poor health. You can see what happened to him–at least physically–from a picture of him in Israel with his wife not that long ago, available online, and his current pictures after his release from Cuba.

What is so wrong about Alan Gross getting a Hanukkah gift of freedom? I am happy for him and his family. And I am also happy that the Huangs have been allowed to return to America after being held in Qatar on trumped up charges in which they could face execution if they were convicted. We take our freedom too much for granted in America. And we need to be constantly vigilant to protect it because it will constantly be under attack.

Ralph Adamo on December 18, 2014 at 5:29 pm

    The 1994 movie ‘True Lies’ has Schwarzenegger confronting nuclear terrorists going under the name Crimson Jihad but that’s the last such movie I recall featuring Arab or Muslim terrorists.

    Raymond in DC on December 18, 2014 at 6:51 pm

As for what Obama should do regarding the threat from North Korea, I have the answer to that. He should send his buddy Dennis Rodman to meet with Kim Jong Un to work out some edits and changes to “The Interview” that will meet with Un’s satisfaction. Then all will be well.

Ralph Adamo on December 18, 2014 at 5:30 pm

It makes me sick that Sony is kowtowing to this slug Kim Jong Un. I don’t remember giving that creep a veto over what films we can make or watch. As Mrs. Slocombe said in the famous British sitcom “Are You Being Served?” “Weak as Water!” That quote PERFECTLY describes the execs at Sony to a T.

Ghostwriter on December 18, 2014 at 5:50 pm

    Ghostwriter, you made me 😀 when I read your Mrs. Slocombe “Are You Being Served” reference. Not only do I love that show I always hear her saying that in my head when I come across a weakling or wimp. Bully for you! 😀

    Skunky on December 18, 2014 at 9:50 pm

Never thought of that D.S Rocks, you’re most likely right, just nerds goofin’ around and punked Sony. Weenies.

@ Ralph- Did I miss something, when has Dennis and the president been friends. Last video I seen of ol Dennis, he was talking nothing but “cash sh*t” (Ebonics for a lot of vitriolic anger infused words)about the president. Dennis does not like the president one bit. Come on Ralph, you’re usually better than that.

MrBigBrain on December 18, 2014 at 5:54 pm

    Are you really Mr. BigBrain? Then I would assume you would recognize that I’m joking—though I’ll admit it’s sometimes not clear that I’m doing that. I thought this one was clear, however. But that aside, Dennis Rodman himself has said that if Kim Jong Un, President Obama, and himself could make some time to shoot some hoops together, all would be well. Who are we to disagree with Rodman? After all, he does know much more about basketball than either of us do.

    Ralph Adamo on December 18, 2014 at 6:42 pm

I believe the last major studio film to feature Muslims as villains is “True Lies.”

Alan on December 18, 2014 at 6:44 pm

“Filmmakers who made a movie of Tom Clancy’s “The Sum of All Fears” changed the story’s villains from Islamic terrorists to neo-Nazis.”

I don’t know how it is in the book, but in the movie the nuclear bomb ultimately used to destroy Baltimore is of ISRAELI origin, allegedly lost in the desert and forgotten about. So the movie makers wrote Islamic terrorists out of the script and managed to make the Jews culpable.

Raymond in DC on December 18, 2014 at 6:57 pm

Okay, it does look like “True Lies” from the 1990s–a James Cameron film–featured a Muslim villain. I had forgotten about the movie, though I did see it when it came out and I remember liking it–at least insofar as these actions movies are concerned.

Interestingly, Art Malik, the actor who played the Muslim villain–although originally from a Muslim background– has described himself as “not a practicing Muslim.” Malik, in fact, said, “I’m probably an apostate, and liable for any right-minded Muslim fundamentalist to put me on a list of people to stamp out.”

Ralph Adamo on December 18, 2014 at 8:11 pm

Thank G-d the people who are currently in charge of our government and our major companies weren’t in charge in the 1940s. If they were, Hitler would’ve achieved his goal of taking over the world. It’s disgusting how far this once-great country has fallen.

Jeff on December 18, 2014 at 8:33 pm

I’m LOLOLing that Big, Dumb Dinky hasn’t gotten it yet that our Ralph likes to use sarcasm in his posts to make a point. But BDD comes here in his short bus then, doesn’t he?

Gotta love USA as it’s diving head 1st into the sh** heap at the speed of light. A country that has let execrable Moooooslims win since 9/11, ignores truth-tellers and is a country of freedom yet the ‘men’ today who wanna get ‘their freak on’ have to use little, blue pills to get said freak on (sorry, this irony amuses me and disgusts me at the same time!!! LOL!). The mentally ill alpha-chicks emasculate their men, get knocked up outta wedlock & then if and when they do get married, hen-peck their girly-men hubbies and then the sex (when it should be up & running) goes on walkabout. Whatta place!

DS said all the things I thought. This nation of pantywaists is DISGUSTING to behold. It would be a laugh-riot if I wasn’t living in it!

This is what happens when a Nation of dumb-effers votes in a crypto-commie congenital liar with a socipath mental deficit. I can’t stand what I see but I know the cause and all I can do now is shrug.

Skunky on December 18, 2014 at 8:39 pm

Some time ago, the President chided his new neighbors–the whole of Washington, DC–for being “snow wimps.”

malca on December 18, 2014 at 8:39 pm

Sony Entertainment acted in an utterly craven way. Bowing and scraping before Al Sharpton and pulling “The Interview” from all distributors was hardly an edifying spectacle. Our enemies are laughing over our increasing befuddlement.

Worry on December 18, 2014 at 9:45 pm

Last night, Spike TV channel had commercials advertising The Interview.
That was strange to watch

Jesse on December 18, 2014 at 10:10 pm

I read your blog all the time because it’s so ridiculous but this post actually makes sense. Why should we as Americans succumb to terrorists?

Freedom of speech!

By the way, I noticed you reply to some comments so what’s your opinion on Christian Arabs? I mean like is your issue just with Muslims or just Arabs? I’m confused..

Also Arab is just a linguistic culture. Palestinians are the descedents of Jews that were Arabized and Islamized but you’re a left wing Teahadist radical so I doubt you believe in science or genetics. I was just wondering what your opinion is.

I really hope you reply to this, I’m a fan.

Ismail Mohamed on December 18, 2014 at 11:03 pm

Ralph, I didn’t know if you were joking or not, should have known you were because your posts are usually on point, Skunky was right, I was slippin today. Lol at the Dennis Rodman reference, yeah all these sports guys ha some tangent.

ve really been giving him credit about his basketball acumen the last few days.

Skunky, um the rest of your post? Some tangent. (2nd paragraph that is)

This president has to be the best poker player on the planet. Unbelievable, he shows nothing but apathy and disinterest, then bam out of no-where, policy, policy. Its quite entertaining. Who knew, Cuba? lol

MrBigBrain on December 19, 2014 at 12:57 am

It just gets worse with Paramount joining in:

Worry on December 19, 2014 at 4:33 am

FYI…The South Park episode mocking Mohammad was shown just this week. It was two parts. They mocked the Fox censors in part one, and mocked the idiot, clueless pandering public (with there heads in the sand)in part two.
I don’t remember if it was on Comedy Central or another channel but they did air it much to my surprise. I never thought a cartoon could show more truth in it than the evening news does. In public, fiction is the new Reality and Reality is obsolete.

whocares? on December 19, 2014 at 9:46 am

That’s good that the controllers of South Park “let their nuts hang” (Ebonics for courage), stop being weenies. So now people see how soft and squishy Sony is, everyone is going in for the kill.

Mr. Al Sharp is now punkin’ Sony and forcing them to listen to him saying their needs to be Black Execs at Sony. Wtf. Really Al?
Because some female exec cracked a few jokes about the president liking Black movies? That’s an issue Al? GTFOH. Can you believe this crap. No one cares. It was a joke, even if it wasn’t So What. Al, you inject yourself into meaningless crap.

Now if Sony hired a Black person , because of you Al, they will be resented, a puppet, and be disrespected constantly and no fault of their own. You have become so tired Al. Ridiculously tired, it was good to see that Black family ban you from their funeral. Your gig is up, Bruh!

MrBigBrain on December 19, 2014 at 11:01 am

The Hackers now have more demands. Bwaa ha ha ha. Sony is all yella. Just yella poopy diapers.

MrBigBrain on December 19, 2014 at 1:09 pm

Pyongyang. Another city that should be festively glowing in green this time of year. Trinitium Green.

Occam's Tool on December 19, 2014 at 1:11 pm

Interesting that those in Hollywood complaining now about the leaked E-mails from key Sony executives (supposedly in retaliation for the planned release of this film), back in the day were cheering Edward Snowden’s treasonous actions. That factor, plus their reaction over the pulling of “The Interview” vs. the studios’ constant caving to HAMAS CAIR demands, also underscores their rank hypocrisy at the end of the day.

ConcernedPatriot on December 19, 2014 at 1:28 pm

In the interest of fairness, I say Sony should re-run “Dr. Strangelove” in lieu of “The Interview”

And yes I am a veteran.

Panhandle on December 19, 2014 at 1:57 pm

You know, in thinking over the response of outrage by the Hollywood community, the liberals, and the left in general for capitulating so completely to the North Korean threat, I’ve come to the conclusion the left has demonstrated “bigotry” and “racism” toward the North Koreans and that they are exhibiting “KimJongUnophobia.”

Liberals and other members of the left must be taught that we cannot tolerate racism and bigotry against the North Koreans, and that they must get over their KimJongUnophobia.

Ralph Adamo on December 19, 2014 at 2:09 pm

I certainly agree that those in Hollywood and other media sources have proven to be cowards in connection with Islam, but let us not forget the recent movies “Taken” (2008) and “Taken 2” (2012). In both films, Albanian Muslims were the primary villains, depicted not as terrorists per se but as important participants in the white slavery trade. I wonder if the forthcoming “Taken 3” will continue this arc.

commonsense on December 19, 2014 at 3:10 pm

The movie ‘The Interview’ probably was an embarrassment of a movie to begin with and they are just using this so-called terrorist threat as an excuse not to release it. Way to go!

Lee on December 19, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    Oh shaddup, Libtard Lee.

    skzion on December 22, 2014 at 7:44 pm

Sony has done us all a BIG FAVOR by letting us see censorship live by ultimately yanking the movie.

For once, instead of backroom deals as documented by Debbie for the other movie, we saw the dirty deed prominently on the news, including days of dramatic “will they/won’t they?” build-up, loud condemnation by Barack “Contiguous Palestine” Obama personally, etc.

There were news reports claiming that the assassination scene in “Interview” was reviewed and APPROVED by the State Department ahead of time. If these reports are correct, what exactly was State thinking or trying to achieve? Yet another secret deal with the Norks in the works? Intentional provocation? Why? Why NOW?

Guardian Angel on December 20, 2014 at 5:19 pm

The sad thing is–and please don’t take it personally, Ms. Schlussel–I think Sony and the rest of Hollywood feel much more threatened by lawyers and lawsuits than they do Islamists and terrorists.

Dave on December 22, 2014 at 1:07 am

    Well, Dave, it seems that Sony will release this after all–given the “involvement” of Barky.

    skzion on December 22, 2014 at 7:46 pm

Is it just me, or does anyone else think that Soney did this, or is at least using it, to hype their movie,…a marketing gimmick? I watched what I could stomach of the trailer, and don’t see how a turkey like that could stand on it’s own.
