CONSERVATIVE RELEASES ANOTHER HOLLYWOOD STAR BOYCOTT
by Patrick Patterson, New York correspondent.
[July 5, 2004]
[HollywoodInvestigator.com] Jon Alvarez of
"Patriotic Americans Boycotting Anti-American Hollywood"
is circulating yet another boycott list, targeting celebrities who've "abandoned
America in her time of need" (whatever that means).
The boycott list is so extensive,
it'd have been simpler if Mr. Alvarez had simply listed the celebrities
one may see. One wonders what British actress Joanna Lumley did that
qualifies as "abandoning American in her time of need." Back in the
1990s, the British editor of National Review,
John O'Sullivan, praised Lumley (and her politically incorrect Absolutely
Fabulous) in NR. But these past few years, pro-war conservatives
(i.e., neocons) have come to mirror the PC Left in their outrage over any
dissent. (I wonder if the fiercest of the Bush-supporters and Bush-haters
realize they are looking into a mirror?)
Without endorsing Mr. Alvarez's
silly list, here it is for the curious, along with his communique, and
our comments in red:
My Fellow Patriots:
Thank you for supporting our efforts
vs the traitorous actions of Michael Moore. We were very successful
in our efforts, thanks in large part to you! Many theatre chains
chose to do the right thing and NOT air this anti-American film [theaters
do not 'air' films, they screen them] and many potential viewers
were alerted to the real premise of Moore's vile propaganda. For
all the hype and hoopla, this film did only $23 Million its first weekend. Compare that to the opening weekend for The
Passion of the Christ, which did over $80 million. The best efforts
of the treacherous left in America have once again, failed miserably. [$23
million is not bad for a documentary; also, one may appreciate both Fahrenheit
9/11 and The Passion of the Christ].
While we may have allowed the
radical left to undermine our efforts during the Vietnam War, thus denigrating
the service of those brave troops and forcing them to return home in shame
disgrace, we certainly won't allow that to happen again. There'll
be no spitting on the troops on our watch! [One
can, of course, support the troops but not the war.]
Our latest boycott list of anti-American
celebrities. We've included many of those theatre chains which have
decided to support Michael Moore's treachery. They refused to listen
to YOU, so don't feel badly about not supporting their chain in the future. Besides, it's cheaper nowadays to simply buy the DVD of the movie you'd
to see, as opposed to spending over $8.00 a ticket, plus popcorn/soda,
cramped seating, and noisy neighbors.
God Bless America!
The following celebrities have
betrayed America during its time of need and are on a boycott list being
circulated. Their products will not be purchased, we will support
them no longer! [Here he refers to America
in "its time of need," but at the end of the list he refers to American
in "her time of need. Curious.]
