Amazing Bias

Has anyone gone to see the movie, “Alexander the Great?”

I’d heard it was rather boring.  Then I heard they threw in these gratuitous references to Alexander being bi-sexual.  Sorry, but that right there was enough to keep me from going.  It’s one thing to make a movie about someone who acknowledges his homosexuality (like Barney Frank---heaven forbid anyone MAKE a movie about him but that’s not the point) yet it is quite another to make said movie when there is no proof and it is thrown into the story line to make a statement and appease some group like GLADD.

So how does the British Press talk about the colossal flop this weekend of Alexander?

“Alexander the (not so) Great fails to conquer America’s homophobes”

Yep, the movie flopped because we are homophobes and not because it is 3 hours long and has hardly any action scenes you’d expect from an epic portraying the life of a famous leader who conquered HUGE amounts of territory before he died.  Let’s not even get into the fact that Angelina Jolie played his mother yet she’s about the same age as the lead actor.

Yessirree Bob, Americans are homophobes and the Conservative Christians:

“have loudly denounced Alexander as “pro-gay” propaganda from Tinseltown, insisting that Alexander was a firmly hetero hero.”

Not only that but this paper opined the movie failed because Americans were not about to go see a movie that had as part of its plot line, a homosexual agenda especially after we were:

“fresh out of a presidential election in which gay rights became a major issue.”

I don’t know about you but as I recall, the Presidential election was about weightier issues than who sticks what in who.  STATE ELECTIONS, however, DID have homosexual marriage on THEIR agendas.

Now, let’s get into the REAL ISSUE here:  BIAS.

Check this out:

“a group of Greek lawyers who are threatening to sue Warner Bros. over the film’s suggestion of Alexander’s bisexuality. They have written to the studio and to Stone to demand that a notice stating the film is a fictional tale is included in the title credits.”

So...............................Americans do not go to a movie because it sucks, has little action, its characters are portrayed in an unreal manner and it is too long.  And assholes like me do not go because of the re-writing of history based on little proof.

But the Greeks SUE THE STUDIOS and they are not the homophobes.

Anyone care to explain this to me?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
