ONE HAS TROUBLE WORKING UP OUTRAGE...:

Hollywood Director: White Conservatives ‘More Terrifying’ Than ‘Any Jihadist’ (John Nolte, 1/23/10, Big Hollywood)

The leftist — and Polanski apologist – film site Cinematical interviewed Joe Carnahan, director of “Narc” and ”Smokin’ Aces” about the direct-to-DVD prequel “Smokin’ Aces 2: Assassins Ball.” [...]

Cinematical: How did you first conceive of the story?

Joe Carnahan: [SPOILER ALERT] Tom Berenger’s character is very much a right-wing conservative white male, and that’s where it started for P.J. and I. I told my own father, who’s politically-minded in that same way, “Dad, you’re the most dangerous thing on the political landscape because you’re a sixty-year-old white conservative,” and that’s more terrifying than any jihadist. But if you took one of these guys, and you gave them the strength of their convictions to become a jihadist… that, to me, was fun. That was Smokin’ Aces territory. P.J. and I gelled behind that very quickly. [END SPOILERS]


...over an incontrovertible statement of fact. After all, al Qaeda tried terrifying us into leaving the Middle East and instead our sixty-year-old white conservative president killed their leader, toppled governments in Afghanistan and Iraq and accepted Libya's surrender. That's what dangerous looks like.
