Steven Spielberg Deserves Censure For His Movie, Munich
In his turn-the-cheek liberalism, which is such a frequent result of Hollywood and its lack of moral values, opposition to terrorism and appropriate revenge for terrorist acts, is consistently denigrated.
The result is to leave the field clear for more terrorist attacks and the destruction of the democratic states and all they value. In the end, we can no more abide Spielberg than the British could abide Chamberlain or the French Laval.
With Spielbergs view prevailing, the Nazies would have won World War II and the Islamic fascists will win this struggle. It is the people like Spielberg who would not resist Hitler, Stalin and Osama bin Laden that allowed these monsters to get away with their murders. It took the Churchills and de Gaulles, and the millions who fought with them, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, to stop them.
In addition, the Spielberg film is poorly based on one discredited book and may not be very consistent with the facts in the struggle growing out of the massacre of 11 Jewish athletics at the Munich Olympics.
However, when Israel did retaliate for the murders, it was justified in doing so, and the U.S. response to 9-11 is justified as well. Spielberg is trying to sap that vitality. His movie sides with the enemies of civilization, is a cravenly appeasionist product and deserves retaliation in the form of a boycott.
