Oliver Stone’s “World Trade Center” - Good if You Like Total Fiction
Every educated non-neocon knows that Bush and company orchestrated the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Everyone except Oliver Stone apparently.
In his latest work, “World Trade Center” he tells the story of some firefighters who get caught up in the whole hullaballoo trying to save people and what not blah blah blah on that day.
I remember that day vividly as well but not because America finally got what it deserved for voting for the Shrub, (the few that actually did vote for him, that is.) I remember that day because I was in London and arranged to meet this cute young guy (he was 19! How exciting!) face to face that I had previously met online back in the States. He said he was going to meet me at Bar Italia on 5th Street. I waited and waited but he never showed. Blah blah blah America was attacked, blah blah blah the WTC towers came down – but I was really bummed that my 19 year old hottie never showed and I never saw any action the whole time I was in London. I hauled my cookies all the way to LONDON for this! Then I had to wait until we could finally fly back to the US.
I just don’t’ get it. Does Oliver Stone actually care what American audiences think? Or does he and the studio need the receipts that patriotic, *barf* American audiences deliver? Is the studio system that desperate for money? You know things are bad when National Review Online editor Kathryn Jean Lopez writes:
“…It’s about a Marine who will drop everything to return to service. It’s about a team of rescue workers who will leave no man to die. It’s about our deep, abiding faith in God. It’s about our love of family, and the work we’ll do for them, and the joy they bring us. It’s about the irreplaceable, incomparable bond between a man and wife.”
Disgusting. We all know marines care about killing and raping and they will take every opportunity to do that they can. Our deep abiding faith in God, you say? What God, I say! The one that leaves little children to die at the hands of the unprovoked and savage Israelis? That God? The one that FOUNDED Israel to begin with? Oh and the love of family – you’ve got to be kidding me. Like my family? My old drunk father coming home at all hours of the night after being literally thrown out of Stand up Franks – stumbling through the door just so he could smack us around? Tell me about your God, family and marines, Mr. Stone. Frankly I expected more from a fellow conspiracy theorist and hemp lover such as yourself. Frankly I think you need to get an education neo-con Stone, before we Lieberman your ass too! Do you need the money? Well, I’m going to officially send you a quarter so you can call someone who cares!
