The movie "300" debuted over the weekend to take a tidy sum of 70 million dollars. The story is an adaptation of a Frank Miller comic book that tells his dramatization of the Battle of Thermopylae.
Iranian official Javad Shamqadri, advisor to President Ahmadinejad, is crying over the film, saying that it is "part of a comprehensive U.S. psychological war aimed at Iranian culture", and that "following the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Hollywood and cultural authorities in the U.S. initiated studies to figure out how to attack Iranian culture," adding "certainly, the recent movie is a product of such studies."
He went on to say that he would personally start making films that celebrate Iranian culture and values to counteract Hollywood's attack.
The delusions of the insane are laughable. Hollywood is full of rabid leftards that HATE President Bush and America in general. This is all about profit, pure and simple. If Hollywood didn't think this film would make tons and tons of money, it wouldn't be made.
Speaking of Hollywood leftards that hate America first, James Cromwell decided it would be a good idea to badmouth America on foreign soil, joining a long list of celebrities who think it's chic to bite the hand that feeds them.
You may recognize Cromwell from anyone of his many, many roles, such as the recent role of Jack Bauer's father on "24," and Zephram Cochran of "Star Trek." He will also be in the upcoming Spider-Man 3... And I'll bet that Sam Rami is taking a hefty dose of aspirin right now...
Speaking to the London Telegraph, Cromwell said, ""I can't handle living in the United States of America when I know the last two elections were rigged, and that we were denied our right to vote, where we live in a country where 32 percent of the people vote and even those people's votes don't count, and the people who should really have a stake, kids, don't have any say at all – people of color, very little to say, unions, practically nothing any more … we're losing our jobs. …"
Right, James. That's why we're hands-down the best, most free, wealthiest nation on the planet that literally millions of people risk life, limb and break the law to get into every year.
So, Mr. Cromwell, if you hate America so badly, may I humbly suggest you gear up and LEAVE:
