In Red Dawn, a city in Washington state awakens to the surreal sight of foreign paratroopers dropping from the sky – shockingly, the U.S. has been invaded and their hometown is the initial target. Quickly and without warning, the citizens find themselves prisoners and their town under enemy occupation. Determined to fight back, a group of young patriots seek refuge in the surrounding woods, training and reorganizing themselves into a guerrilla group of fighters. Taking inspiration from their high school mascot, they call themselves the Wolverines, banding together to protect one another, liberate their town from its captors, and take back their freedom.
At first I thought this film was was made by South Park. It is stupid, ridiculous and so poorly made it is silly. Innocence of Muslims is the Muhammad Movie by Sam Bacile. The idea that Radical Islamists are protesting all over the world and killing Americans over it is even more ridiculous.
Are we at a cultural divide or what? But in all seriousness , we have to remember that people from this religion attacked our country and blew up the Wold Trade Centers not once but twice. Now they are trying to storm our US Embassies in the Arab world over a stupid movie?? Is that what this is about. Insult??
America is going to have to rethink how we are going to deal with these people. They are at war with us and there doesn’t seem to be any room for negotiation. How do you negotiate with barbarians with 4th century interpretations of the Koran.
We never should have given these people their freedom when we discovered oil there. But now that we ( the civilized world) have, we are going to need to take it back: country by country. The civilized Arabs like the Saudi need to help us too.
The US, France, Britain, Russia and China need to go back in there with an army of 5 Million Allied troops, conquer all of these bad countries and put an end to this bullshit. Old school. WWII style. We need to get rid of the crazy Mullahs. shut down the bad Mosques, kill a bunch of these people, imprison the rest and drag these tortured desert maniacs kicking and screaming into the 21st century. We need to civilize them the same way we did the Nazis and Japanese. They won’t quit til we do.
I know our president apologized to them. But there is a hard rain a gonna fall on the Arab world. and it is about to come from all of us. My hope is that all of the big powerful countries of all religions will join together and teach these people “what would Mohamed do” he’d kill them.
We had North Africa during World War II. We never should have let it go. We backed the Arab Spring and now they have all gone power mad, are stealing our money , our good will and are killing Americans. Time to bring this to a swift end. We need to conquer and Occupy the Middle East and have good peaceful Muslems run things. But not with out the boot of Russia, China, and the USA.
First let me say, I think you have been doing an excellent job as city manager. This coming from someone who has been critical of most city officials over the years. In part it is my job. Also, though I have never met you, you have given me nor anyone concerned with free press a reason to complain. It is a far sight from your predecessors. I think you have resolved the public access TV issue remarkably well. Though we don’t have free public access TV anymore , we do have educational access TV and it fills the void for all citizens interested. Having BVSD run it is a good move, because they don’t cause problems.
I also think the city and police have interacted well with the occupy Boulder movement. Tonight they are camped on the front lawn of the municipal building. That’s very nice. They are our children. And they are doing what we did’; protest the injustices of powerful corporations who don’t pay taxes and big banks who attempt to enslave us all. So they need protesting.
Personally, I would have suggested that the kids protested the homes of Boulder bankers who swindle people, rather than the city manager who is trying to keep the lid on all of it.
In any event I support occupys political tactics. I think when a group who are trying to fight for freedom and against greed or intolerance, run into road blocks, they will change the rules in public policy. I certainly did. They people who stood up to the city over lack of free speech concerning public access TV, took radical steps to be heard. I did from 2005 to 2007. The city council and the city manger were under daily attacks by video, blogs and speech at council. Did it solve anything ? It showed without resolution they would remain under siege.
Much holds true with occupy Boulder. Until the banks and corporations are held accountable by the city, occupy is not going away. That is the issue. Not the protesters. They are Boulders children carrying on.
