Sony Hacking Reveals The Selective Outrage Of The Gutless Progressive Class

Would not be made today for fear of insulting Nazis...My tweet with attached photo  still of Inglorious Bastards

I have to confess, I'm not losing sleep over the hacking of Sony. While I fully understand the dangers of Cyber attacks (especially on our security, financial systems and energy infrastructure), I'm finding it difficult to show any sympathy for many of the hypocrites in Hollywood.

  • As progressives show outrage at Communist N. Korea, they've showed nothing but sympathy and praise for Communist Cuba. For example, in 2009, a select group of our finest in Congress {the Congressional Black Caucus} visited Cuba, and returned ready to declare Castro for sainthood. "I think that what really surprised me, but also endeared me to him, was his keen sense of humor, his sense of history and his basic human qualities," said Bobby Rush (D-Ill) at the time. Rush said this about a dictator whose conducted a reign of terror in Cuba for the last 55 years. It appears our nitwit congressmen and women have no sympathy for the 17,000 political assassinations conducted by the Castro regime. Hey! But the guy has a great sense of humor. And that's just one small example of Castro's barbarism.
  • There's the Hollywood nitwits. Stephen Spielberg, after meeting with Castro, proclaimed it as "the eight most important hours of my life." Ed Asner,  Danny Glover and Harry Belafonte have been on record praising Castro. And then there's that always reliable knucklehead, Michael Moore, who loves Cuba's healthcare system even though access to antibiotics and aspirin is limited (usually to the upper class who happen to be well-healed Communists anyway. I personally witnessed this type of warped healthcare system in Eastern Europe when it was under the jack-book of the Communists).
  • While Hollywood is up in arms over what appears to be North Korea's hacking of Sony, it was just 14 years ago when they savaged George W. Bush for including N. Korea in the Axis of Evil in addition to Iran and Iraq. As one critic said of Hollywood's response, "If we can't see Seth Rogan with a salami stuck between his butt cheeks, the terrorist have won." Kyle Smith, a film critic, described Hollywood appropriately as "the valley of cowards" after reporting that New Regency Pictures just cancelled a thriller about N. Korea.
  • One of the disturbing outcomes of Sony's response is that almost anyone who does not agree with a particular film can now block its distribution----even though progressives have been doing a good job at trying to block anything conservatives do even selling chicken or specific TV reality shows.
  • Anyway, while Sony and Hollywood wimped with distributing The Interview, there's always Team America.
