Hollywood Libs Push Boycott of Zero Dark Thirty January 24, 2013 By Ben Shapiro ... But when it comes to todays liberals persecuting non-liberal thought in Hollywood, Hollywood doesnt bat an eyelash. Take, for example, director Kathryn Bigelow of Zero Dark Thirty. Bigelow is no right-winger when she made The Hurt Locker, many on the right were upset at what they perceived to be an anti-military bias. But now, the left wants a full-scale awards season boycott against Zero Dark Thirty. Why? The movie depicts American intelligence utilizing harsh interrogation techniques techniques harsher than those actually used in order to obtain information about Osama Bin Laden. This challenges the lefts contradictory view of torture: either torture is so brutal that its immorality outweighs the gains obtained, or torture doesnt work at all. Bigelows film depicts brutal torture placing terrorists in boxes, hanging people from chains, waterboarding with buckets but it also shows that the intelligence gathered was valuable in finding Bin Laden. And Hollywood cant handle that. ... While those in Tinseltown like to claim that their ultimate god is the almighty dollar an odd defense from a group of folks who consider themselves to be leftists the truth is that they are cause-driven ideologues. And its astonishing how little non-liberal content it takes to turn Hollywood against you. Originally, Zero Dark Thirty was slated to be a sycophant session for Obama as bin Laden-killer. Then it was great. But when Bigelow produced an accurate depiction of the role of enhanced interrogation techniques even as a side point in the main story the left turned on it. And then the left claims, ridiculously, that theres no bias in Hollywood. Hollywood Libs Push Boycott of ?Zero Dark Thirty?
