The Man Behind The De Palma Smear: Mark Cuban Declares War On The Troops

September 3rd, 2007 Posted By Pat Dollard.

Mark Cuban

Billionaire Mark Cuban has decided to put all of his weight behind a campaign to smear US troops in Iraq as “monsters’. Cuban has decided that De Palma’s film “Redacted” must be seen as the cornerstone of his and De Palma’s self-declared anti-victory campaign against America and her troops fighing in Iraq. Cuban’s company Magnolia Pictures will be bringing this propganda campaign to a theater near you this winter. According to a source close to Cuban, the decision for Magnolia to develop, finance and distribute the film was personally made by Çuban. Cuban has a full producer credit on the film, and DePalma shot it on HiDef video at Cuban’s request, in order for it to qualify as fodder for Cuban’s hi-def cable channel. So far neither he or DePalma have explained how they can be “bringing the truth of the Iraq war to the American people”, as Louie DePalma has said, when neither of them have ever been to Iraq, filmed any of “Redacted” in Iraq, or spent one minute with any soldier in Iraq. Clearly they are only bringing you their imagined propagandists’ reality of Iraq. Both had the opportunity to go, both declined. They have chosen the coward’s path in a quest for legitimacy as spokesmen for the Iraq war, and as such both have failed in that quest. Indeed, they are left standing as laughingstocks. Their reach has exceeded their grasp. Cuban is a jet-set, armchair “Iraq Truther” who made sure not to have his private jet stop anywhere near Iraq. But he and DePalma are more than anxious to bring you the “reality of the Iraq war”. LMFAO.

( In case you haven’t heard of him, billionaire Cuban owns the Dallas Mavericks and supports the campaign against Global Warming by travelling in his private Gulf Stream V jet. He also decided to distribute the 9-11 paranoid conspiracy “Truther” film, “Loose Change”.)

DePalma said that going in it was his intention to make a film that would nauseate the American people, and thereby lead to a US withdrawal from Iraq. Well the only way for him to pull that off is if his film makes the case that the anomolous rape it fictionalizes is not actually an anomoly, but a “typical” snapshot of the US military’s behavior. In short, he would have to make his “troops-as-monsters” conceit appear to be typical of the troops, not atypical. This reveals a desire to create something that is nothing short of a willful and intentional smear built upon a lie. It also means that he decided not to look at Iraq for what it was, but to find something - anything - in it that would allow him to advance his propaganda campaign. Well Louie DePalma gave the game away when he confessed his excitement at his initial discovery of the rape story: “I knew I had a story!”. Now if that doesn’t mean “A story to suit my propaganda interests!”, then what does it mean?

The best defense DePalma has been able to muster about the lack of direct military reality in his film is “I had plenty of real stuff to put in but I didn’t put it in, and can’t show it to you to prove it, because my lawyers won’t let me”. That kind of bullshit pr spin may fly in Hollywood, but it isn’t flying here on earth. If you’ve got the goods, Louie, show them. It would appear quite clear why you haven’t already.

None of the troops in Mr. DePalma’s film are real. They are as imaginary as he and Mr. Cuban’s balls.

Close to a year ago, Daily Kos ran a featured post declaring that it was time to attack the troops if the anti-victory movement was to succeed. Clearly DePalma and Cuban took the cue.

More to follow…

UPDATE: Debbie Schlussel caught this early.:

… Billionaire NBA Owner/Producer Mark Cuban can’t take the heat from Schlussel readers with complaints over this anti-American troops film. Read the comments section on this post, in which Cuban writes that he’s setting his filter to delete all complaints about this movie. Hey, Mark, you know what they say about your promiximity to the kitchen when you can’t take the heat . . . .

    Greetings:

    What about doing a film on Cuban? Someone could follow him around and do an expose?

    I don’t know anything about this Cuban person…interview me as the expert…

    Seems to me a good documentary by someone who was actually there, and actually hanging with the troops and actually being blown up by actual IED’s may be able to paint a more accurate picture of the actual situation in Iraq, actually.

  3. JewishOdysseus

    If people like DePalma tried this sh!t during WWII, lib God FDR wd have thrown his traitorous ass into an internment camp, if not had him summarily hanged.

    Even for Hollyweird, this type of open anti-victory propaganda is stunning.

    Where are the crazed stalker/”fans” with snub-nosed .38s when you need them?

  4. John D Infidel

    According to the Wikipedia entry on Mark Cuban he is planning to distribute a version of the 9-11 conspiracy theory bullshitsumentary “Loose Change”. This guy makes my blood boil.

  5. Fire, Fire, Fire

    What’s with Cuban and his new anti-US media campaign?

  6. Clyde Conneer

    Can he BUY a larnyx and new lungs?

    That “documentary” is not showing anywhere near my position.

  7. V. Vedros

    I knew Cuban before he was a “rich” bastard!! He’s nothing special - what makes him an expert on anything??!! He was just lucky in the stock market! He’s always been ambitious but all I can say is that I knew him when……

  8. Fire, Fire, Fire

    And I love how no one else is reporting Cuban’s involvement. Can’t find a single story on Google. Maybe he thought he could hide. Good job, Pat

  9. Dan (The Infidel)

    Sounds like a good time for Texans to consider boycotting the Mavericks game as a protest. Make the protest loud.

    Cuban is another tool of the LMSM. And De Palma is just another shyster hollyweird type with an unamerican agenda. Boy if I could just get him in a room by himself for 5 minutes….

    This puke just pisses me off.

    Good line Pat: “None of the troops in Mr. DePalma’s film are real. They are as imaginary as he and Mr. Cuban’s balls.”

    However, pussies don’t have any balls.

  10. JerryC

    Cuban should be held to account as much as De Palma. Here’s a link to his company Magnolia Pictures Austin address and email contact:

  11. Cridhe Saorsa

    Uh would a charge of treason apply here at least? I hope they try to show that trash in main street America. They underestimate the metal of fly-over country.

  12. Dan (The Infidel)

    US Code Title 18 Chapt 115 Sec 2381

    “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. ”

    Yep, in time of war this clown is guilty. Hang him high.

  13. Randy Anderson, GySgt

    This guy owns a team in the heart of Texas, I can’t believe that Texans would stand for this guy. What is happening when this guy can get away with this type of behavior in Big D?? Dallas, oh, Dallas….what has happened to what was once a great city?? Revolt…revolt!!! Boycott!! :evil:

  14. Randy Anderson, GySgt

    Pure vermin. Sadistic commie bastards! Get a freakin rope and let’s watch him squirm.

  15. Jim

    They need to get that clown out of Texas…Dallas is now the team to be the most pussified and hated. What a freakin mommas boy

  16. just posting

    cuban looks like a cock-gobbler. The politicans makes up and enforce retarded laws, but ignore the most basic and important ones (treason) its insane how this is normal from government this era. Don’t wanna get on a tangent, anyways the south needs to boycott cuban like they did the dixie-dykes.

  17. WatcherWTF

    In World War Two Frank Capra made “Why We Fight”. Cuban and DePalma have made “Why Our Boys Are Subhuman And Why We Must Lose”

  18. drillanwr

    “DePalma said that going in it was his intention to make a film that would nauseate the American people …”

    I don’t know … The bucket of pig’s blood dumped on Carrie at the prom was pretty sickening in its day …

    Then there was the staged drill through the sexy girl’s belly and into the floor by the staged would be home intruder in Body Double …

    The drug dealers chain-sawing off of the limbs of the chained up Cuban guy in the hotel room shower in Scarface …

    But the topper for me was that idiotic would be romantic, anti-gravity, dance between Tim Robbins and Connie Nielsen in Mission To Mars … Yeah, that WAS the MOST nauseating!

  19. Jim

    It looks like “Peter Pan” has been kicked in his pussy too many times an De Palma is going to lick it and make it feel better. We’ll probally see them lovers together at a Dallas Fairies game

  20. John Howell

    It is not just the movies that are anti-american, look at comedy central on cable. In years past former Presidents did not criticicize the sitting President and a network cable or otherwise never put on a show that showed JFK as a womanizer.
    Comedy Central is part of those to be called enemies with the show Lil Bush.

  21. danielle

    HANG HIM! Like seriously. I’m soo mad! How can they do this? I hope his stupid film tanks.

  22. Dan (The Infidel)

    drillanwr:
    Now you know why I don’t waste my time at the movies. There’s WAY too much junk like you just described. I don’t rent them either. I’ll take a TCM movie any day over the trashola you just described. Turner might be a dickhead, but old movies are still better fare than anything that Brian De Puke can come up with.

    What do you expect from a guy that hires Dan Rather and green lights a movie like ‘Bubble’?

    Conspiracy thought of the day:
    ‘Bubble’ is to Mark Cuban’s stock market miracle as ‘Redacted’ is to Dan’s Rathergate. :shock:

    Heh, so I’m not the only one that avoids the movie theater then…

    De Palma is nothing more than a person obsessed with murder and rape, every one of his films glorifies these sick attributes. He is a contributor to expose youth to graffic violence and he bathes himself with the victoms blood. The hypocracy of this film and his intent with it shows a weak man who will stop at nothing to promote himself at the expense of all victoms of war, the fact that he believes he is on the moral high ground is evident enough of his hypocracy. What happened in Iraq was not the consequence of war but the choice of a sick person and his friends loyal in a combat structure but not to his crime. De Palma will not change the course of Iraq with his film, he will more than likely win praise from the left wingnuts and an increasingly irrelavent Oscar award like M. Moore did. Punishing this country and especially the soldiers in Iraq because of one incredibly awful event seems to be the only trick these anti-victory folk can muster, and we will have to listen to them lecture us on why the world hates us, its because of their greed and ruthless goals of getting rich at the expense of all the rest of us. I never go to see movies anymore, they are nothing but trash, filled with sick horror and twisted messages, messages that the rest of the world sees. The culture of violence in this country rests entirely on the shoulders of those in Hollywood who profit from fictional murder, rape and abuse, hell they give themselves awards for creating this crap. Never again in this age will we see a film director with the skill of Alfred Hitchcock and/or David Lean, whom both managed to show wars without redaction.

  31. Boombop

    Is Mark Cuban George Soros bastard child? It sounds like they both come from the same pile of shit.

    This is the same kind of bullshit that went on during the VietNam war. The enemy love this kind of propaganda. You know what happen in VietNam when the American public feed into the horror spin. It left a lot of good people laying in the killing fields. We as Americans can not let this happen again!

  32. Grumpy

    I’m sorry but the headline from Drudge really broke my heart. This guy just has no idea.

  33. EdinTampa

    The enemy is desperate and because they are losing the Culture War they are attacking one of our MOST sacred, OUR TROOPS!

    The Army, Navy AirForce, Marines, Coast Guard, Law Enforcement & Fire Fighters are all RIGHT leaners and the left will cut off their RIGHT hand as long as they can win a political point.

    The Left has our education institutions, mainstream media, hollywood & much of the music industry. These are their weapons and we must defeat them by prosecuting treason & sedition as well as expanding our established footholds in these institutions. We MUST stay vigilant.

    A note to all you TCM movie watchers, yes the old movies are good but the Tcm movies have almost all been edited (scenes removed , etc) to make an old conservative movie have a leftist anti-gun anti-war tint. I grew up watching the originals and the new edited films are not quite the same…

  38. Irish Gal

    It’s gonna tank, trust me. America is not up for this bullshit. There is a small minority that will get their rocks off, but the backlash will be significant. Even at the polls. Bring it on you wussies…

  39. Bill Margraf

    Well, this is indeed a sad day for us Texans, and Dallasites. First, Jerry Jones, now Mark Cuban, and with the way the Rangers play, only thing left is the Stars, and they like to exit playoffs early.
    This breaks my heart, would have never thought a Texan could do this. Hope to heavens he is a tranplant.

  40. Bill

    If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times, make your voices heard in November and at the box office. I don’t go to movies either and rarely rent. And when I do its typically science fiction. As a scientist it’s far easier for me to swallow the X-files etc. than most of the crap at the theater. I think most of the movies made today are just plain vile.

    We’ve come a long way from Jimmy Stewart and blacklisting pinko commie sympathizing bastards. Now conservatives in Hollywood have to hide in closet.

    One of the outcomes of a lot of what we talk about on this board is the distinction between good and evil, pro vs anti-Americanism, has never been clearer. We have so much material with which to win the debate regarding who really is part of the “culture of corruption” and on what side the “vast conspiracy” really is residing. It’s not even up for debate that the MSM is completely liberal to the core and will defend liberal democrats at all costs.

    To those who read my drivel and who have children or who are responsible for children, make a difference in their lives. Don’t follow the societal recomended norm, question EVERYTHING society and our culture tell us to do. For example, we homeschool our kids and we also talk about good and evil and current events who the real bad guys are. I will never ever teach my kids the moral relativism that is so prevalent today, its been woven into the fabric of our society. PC thinking is so pervasive it’s sometimes hard to spot.

    Keep your powder dry and teach your kids the truth.

    Just as the LMSM writes “news” just to hear itself (See: MSNBC ratings, et al …)

    Hollywood, during this presidential administration and this war, and the war on terror in general (See: Spielberg’s sympathetic Munich), is making and churning out movies they don’t give a flying fuck if anyone actually pays to see … just as long as they get it out there for their “peeps” to admire and heap awards onto …

    Somebody needs to remind the LMSM and Hollywood that self-gratification can be easier and cheaper with a bottle of lotion and a porn magazine … Invite your friends over and they can praise your technique for hours.

    Must be nice to be a pretentious billionaire. Must be nice.

    Hey everybody, I’m done with Marine Combat Training and off to my MOS school in Meridian, Mississipi. I’m an aviation supply clerk. I’ll be able to post a lot more now, as in MCT we only get Sunday liberty and last Sunday Camp Pendleton’s power went out because of a few raindrops.

    You know you’re a Marine when sleeping on a flat concrete surface is a luxury. As for Mark Cuban, he’s a very special man and we have to give him credit: not many people have the ability to suck their own cock. And hey, I hear he swallows.

    I’m trying to think of what my drill instructors would say about Mark Cuban. They’d probably have to invent some new cuss words.

    Like “fuckbag”. Put that one in your cargo pocket, I just made it up. More to come, brothers.

    The rapists were tried and convicted by our military. I wonder how many soldiers in other armies were tried for rape?

  57. dukeruke

    Um… LOUIE de Palma was Danny DeVito’s character on “Taxi” — BRIAN de Palma directed this film.

    But anyway, everyone here’s getting so upset — look, what do you expect? It’s Hollywood. It’s a movie, so of course there’s an element of embellishment/fantasy to it, and of course they’re going to present whatever slant on the story they want.

    But by getting all riled up, talking about “treason” and watching someone swing from a rope — well, you’re all just playing into their hands. They WANT you to have that kind of reaction, to say those kinds of things — it only makes them look sane and all of you look crazy.

    The best thing for everyone to do is just stay home and NOT SEE THE MOVIE. Then you’re sending your own, clear, personal message to the filmmakers and Hollywood saying that you don’t agree with them and aren’t interested in what they are trying to promote. When the movie opens (and from what I hear it will only have limited runs in a few large cities, so never fear — it won’t be coming to a multiplex near you), don’t go see it — instead see some mindless comedy or action film. Keep the numbers down on this and it’ll just go away quietly — next year at this time nobody will even remember it.

Boycott everything he owns or stands for and maybe a contingent of real men, our military, want to make an official visit to Cuban- on behalf of the rest of us who would like to see this phony, at best, have his citizenship revoked.

    Cuban is a total POS for bashing the troops looking to make money off the misery of a family in Iraq while pushing his agenda to discredit the troops. Punishing the entire army for what a few unscrupulous individuals did during war is rediculous.

    i heard this worthless lowlife scum on the radio while back talking about his 9/11 nut ball conspiracy theory movie he was bankrolling saying that the only reason he was making the movie was to show that the crazy theories out there weren’t true. you know to give this person a worldwide audience to get it out in the open so everyone could see it wasn’t true? LOL yeah and that makes about as much sense as my wiping my #ss then taking a sh!t. truth of the matter is this guy is an america hater and he must be trying to have a p!ssing on america contest with his pal george soros. a way has to be found to punish this guy in the pocket book. what’s really scary to me however is that there are enough useful idiots around the world to believe all this trash they put out. i can’t tell you how many european friends (intelligent one’s at that) regurgitating every single line from michael moore’s movies to me as if it were gospel. what a joke. the former head of the soviet union before gorbachav said, “if i had hollywood i’d have the world”. well, it’s obvious now that our enemies have them in their pocket. God help us all. i can’t imagine the hatred this film is going to create for our country all around the globe. how many soldiers are going to be killed because of this disgusting film and how much longer will the war go on because the enemy is emboldened. both of these men should be put up against a wall and shot.

  69. Dan (The Infidel)

    Cuban can play the fence sitting game all he wants. The real Cuban lies where his money is. Giving money for charitable causes as a tax writeoff to to appear patriotic doesn’t make you patriotic.

    You want to be a patriot? Good then be consistant. Don’t support the troops on the one hand then stab them in the back with the other hand.

    Anyone who stabs the troops in the back…no matter what else he or she does…is just another useless oxygen thief.

  72. KB Mills

    Why would anyone use an extreme,isolated,small incident to inflame others and condemn the huge overall majority that are very conscentious,good,and law abiding group of patriots?There are large groups of people out there that already hate America and Americans and they will take any little tidbit and blow it up to be representative of everyone involved with our freedom efforts.And, what makes it disgusting,sad,and hurtful is that it is our own citizens and neighbors who have greatly benefitted from being an American that do things like that.They “hate” certain American segments of society so much that they do not care that the ‘whole’ will suffer.It must be a terrible burden to be like DePalma,Cuban,and a whole bunch of the Hollywood crowd to be so instilled with all powerful knowledge, that they think their way is the only way.And, being stars and famous, they do not get only one person’s share of the right to make public decisions,but much, much more.I wish Hollywood would just stick to it’s business of entertainment instead of trying to determine policy for the government.It is extremely hard to even find movies anymore that do not contain movie stars or that are directed by folks I consider to have extremely far, fringe left ideas.And, I refuse to see those movies any longer.I will not support any of those movie stars that curse and belittle MY COUNTRY.

  73. Alex

    War-related movies that I’d pay to see
    1. Any movie that shows Muslim expansion, with civilian deaths, for the last 1,500 years.
    2. Explanation of Islam, including extra taxation on the Dhimmi (non-Muslims), and the collapse of non-Muslim populations as soon as Muslims reach 50% of population.

  77. Jim Dowd

    Most of these comments are kind of strange.
    This IS a true story. I remember reading it when it came out and thought about how insane it was. I’m not sure why it would make people upset if it were to be told.
    Especially comments about treason… Not sure where that comes into play? Reporting a story that’s been confirmed as true is in no way treason… weird.

  78. Don't go to Mav's games

    Isn’t the respected journalist (puck) Dan Rather one of Cuban’s right hand men with HDNET??
    How about caling your cable company and tell them you want HDNET taken off your subscription. Screw these pigs.

    While I share the sentiments of most of you, I shudder to think of what sort of Anti-American propaganda will be paid for out of $100 barrel oil x 700 billion barrels of oil owned by Muslim governments. This $70 trillion (vs. total production spending by Hollywood of $2 billion/year, or $20 million by Mr. Cuban for Redacted) is enough to bring to the big screen everything, real or imagined, that Americans or non-Muslims have ever done that Muslims find offensive. Toss in political contributions to US politicians (who, after Craig, probably seem even more sexually devious than ever) from pro-Islamic, anti-military donors, and Cuban and De Palma will seem like moderates. If Broadcast.com and Mavericks games can provide the funding to do this much reputation damage to the US military (which can and should fund its own movies, to tell its side of the story), imagine what 4-5 million barrels a day of $70/barrel oil purchased from Islamic nations can do. It’s only a matter of time before movie producers realize that they can get their movies funded from governments that can, like Billy Jack did, pay for the movies and theaters and four wall them. So much for not seeing movies: they don’t have to make money when they offer propaganda paid for by mosques, charities, and governments sympathetic to those who kill non-believers.

    @Jim Dowd -

    The movie is (one thing) … To be released especially DURING the ongoing war, where the enemy WILL use it for their own propagand purposes to incite violence against our troops … In addition, it is more than obvious DePalma (and it appears Cuban) have an agenda beyond the telling of a horrible story … They intend to paint this as a broad reflection of ALL our troops and their actions in Iraq. Read the comments by DePalma:

    http://today.reuters.com/news/articlenews.aspx?type=entertainmentNews&storyid=2007-08-31T150344Z_01_L31903844_RTRUKOC_0_US-VENICE-IRAQ.xml&src=rss&rpc=22&sp=true

    “The movie is an attempt to bring the reality of what is happening in Iraq to the American people,” he (DePalma) told reporters after a press screening.

    While horrific, the one episode of an entire war IS NOT the reality of what our troops are doing in Iraq.

    If you can’t see what is going on here then you have been sold their bill of goods already …

  82. Rob

    Osama Bin Cuban strikes at the heart of America again. Where is he hiding now?

    DePalma must be his bung hole buddy.

  83. Dan (The Infidel)

    Jim Dowd:

    You missed the point. Telling a true story just to put out more leftist agitprop is what has pissed most people off here. De Palma has no intention of seperating out the whaet from the chaff in or Armed Forces…nor will he put up a disclaimer saying that this incident is NOT representative of the actions of the rest of our Armed Forces.

    Lastly, if he wanted to do a pic on Iraq, why not show the atrocities commited by AQ and Saddam. Why not show the progress that we have made on the ground thus far? Why not show Iraqis saying to US troops that US troops are more Iraqi than they are?

    But no. De Palma is not interested in showing what is going right in Iraq…or in supporting the troops. He is like most of Hollywood from the Zinn view of American Armed Forces.

    Enlighten yourself.

  84. Mason Jahr

  86. MacDaddy

    Why doesn’t it surprise me that Mark Cuban is behind this. A man who is as classless on the court (oh, wait. He doesn’t actually play basketball) as he is off the court. Something tells me that when the Mavs show up in San Antonio, a big military town, the abuse that rains down upon them will be magnificent.

  87. Noehedujks

    Mark Cuban established the Fallen Patriot Fund several years ago to benefit families of injured and killed Iraq War veterans. He decided to distribute the ridiculous “Loose Change” movie because he wanted to expose it as a complete fraud, in his view.

    Now, he is involved in a movie showing a different side of the Iraq war than the images fed to you by Fox News.

    By the way, I would like to congratulate all of the right-wingers on this board for your lovely Iraq War. Nice job. As you peeled the “W” stickers off of your SUV’s a few months ago (around the time the government quietly changed “Freedom Fries” back to “French Fries,”) I hope you felt some sense of shame, however small, at what your inane, trivial desires created: an illegal, immoral war that will have catastrophic ramifications for years to come.

  88. Guy Ghisu

    Hearing of Mr.Comrade DePalma’s film ,an imaginary indictment for all of our brave military,is disgusting.Is Comrade Mr. Sean Penn starring also?Mr. DePalma and Comrade Cuban(Kuban)are our present day Klaus Fuchs(the degenerate Las Alamos Nuclear Physicist who gave not sold the secrets of the A-bomb to the Soviets).)Of course Mr. Fuchs did it as a matter of “conscience”,just as comrade DePalma and Cuban are venting their anti-American garbage are.Maybe,when the next major terrorist attack occurs on American soil our “comrades” families are the victims.I pray that most level headed Americans see through all the bulllshit.guyg

  89. NavVet

    It seems Mark Cuban has let his last name take precedence over good sense. As a Fort Worth resident I at times have taken pleasure in his antics as the owner of the Dallas Mavericks. However, I will no longer follow their quest in the NBA nor support them in any way. That frees up some reading time for more important things. It’s a shame, one who made his wealth in this country, now spits on the very ones who make that possible. :twisted: :twisted:

    If you were going to make war propaganda movie, what subject would you choose? I would fund an epic about how the Chinese annexed East Turkestan, 95% Muslim, in 1949 and used hard core imperialism to make a Chinese-majority state, Xinjiang. This includes the first Chinese nuclear test (Mao though Muslims made the best bomb fodder), industrial scale rape of Muslim women (in the hundreds of thousands, with a smaller army than the US has in Iraq) and mandatory contraceptive use forced on the (Caucasian) Uyghur people up to present day, forced marches out of the cities into wilderness, and starvation, unless you want subsidized pork. I’d have a character explain that the US military has intervened to save China (in WW II, from the genocidal Japanese) and, in 10 of the last 12 US-related conflicts involving Muslims, to save Muslim lives. The movie would ask: When have Muslims or Chinese armies ever shed blood to help each other? Answer: Never. China and Dar al-Islam should be begging to have America’s help to help them fight the other, rather than having both of them pretending they get along, and that we are an enemy of both of them. Any billionaire willing to fund this story? Mark?

  100. Steve O.

    A quick look at Brian De Palma’s filmography will show he’s always been a pervert, making salacious films in which helpless beautiful young women are tortured, raped, and murdered in long, drawn-out, extremely sexy close-ups.

    De Palma’s films have probably inspired more domestic abuse and serial rapists than any other director’s. Anywhere but Hollywood, this lowlife would be considered a sexual predator. Instead, he’s made millions staging and photographing the degradation, torture, and deaths of naked and near-naked women.

    That he has the gall now to get on a high-horse, to lecture us all about the Iraq war he knows NOTHING about, is only too typical of Hollywood, where ignorance, arrogance, and obscene wealth lead to grand delusions.

    I say this as a screenwriter who worked in Hollywood for years. I know whereof I speak … lol.

  101. Janes

    Cuban I hope the military will retaliate on you! It’s great Hollyweird that hates America while in Europe in a 5 star hotel, hm, screw you, good part no one but ultra leftist surrender monkeys like Reid Pelosi care about your crap. With only 3% aproval of congress on the war America will reject you as they have Mike the Blob Moore communist rant about Cuban healthcare and the entire Demoncrap party! To Depalma no one with watch your movies anymore except leftists, the country has had it on military bashing! :sad: :twisted: :evil: :mad:

  102. rk

    Talk about Hypocrisy at its WORST! At least Moore actually believes his own idiocy! DePalma is just the typical liberal hypocrite who hates America and Capitalism etc and here he is exploiting capitalism for buck! “Ive really got a story here”. And as for Cuban. He’s just another man gone mad over money and fame. I hope he “pays” at the ticket counter and Depalma at the box office!

    How DARE these people make a buck off the horrible incident of that child and I’m getting so tired and disgusted with people doing it at the expense of the HONORABLE men and women SAVING THEIR ASSES from the horrors of the medieval freakshows in the middle east!

    By God if they truly feel the pain and suffering of the innocents in the middle east, they they can take their butts and their/YOUR money over their, set up camp and HELP THEM instead of hanging around here in your filthy displays of wealth slandering HONORABLE people who would DIE for them!!!

    It is people like DePalma and Cuban and the like that make me feel sometimes like all that is good and honorable and Holy is lost!!!

  108. drillanwr

    This quote from a review of the movie proves what I have been trying to get across in the last few days here and over at NB’s about DePalma trying to make this movie into something way more than what it is … a fictionalized account … And NO … Sean Penn isn’t in it … NO actors who are well known. (As I stated over at NB this was done in the HBO series Band Of Brothers in order to not distract from the story by having a well known face playing a real life person the writers and producers and directors wanted you to feel was real and understand.) Well known faces take away from the “story” … Given the review quote below, and the use of lesser recognizable faces gives the movie the feel of some sick surveillance video of the actual event. Call me a paranoid hack, but COME ON!!! I think the bulk of us here, backed by Dollard’s experience with Hollywood, know exactly what this movie is and why it was made.

    Jerome -

  111. WatcherWTF

    Steve-O:

    As the old saying goes, “A suspicious mind is a guilty conscience”. DePalma believes that the troops act like animals and rapists, because he believes that that is how he would act.
    Anybody see his last few movies, or read the reviews? He was a laughingstock long before this film. DePalma is the lowest of scum, a man willing to pick the pockets of dead American soldiers if that’s what it takes to revive his long-dead career. A coward who never served, dares now to stand on the shoulders of giants.

    Hey Jerome, how about I buy you a little port hole for your navel so you can see where you’re goin’ while you’ve got your head up your ass. The war is going to take a long time, the president has said that since day one. You don’t support the troops if you don’t support the mission. When you’ve got rats you have to clean them all out or the rats keep coming. I saw Viet Nam and Desert Storm, I wish I were younger so I could get involved in this too, but I can’t. I have to feel secure in knowing there are brave men and women out there more than likely your age, that have the guts and fortitude to heed their country’s call and fight for freedom. Even some other guy’s freedom. And BTW, hey DePalma and Cuban, how about a film about how those rat faced ragheads blow up little kids and churches? That would be unsettling too, I would think.

  115. Mike in Dallas

    Well, looks like Pat hit the big time now, drudge put a link out on this story.

    As a citizen of Texas, may I just say that Mark Cuban is a fool and looks like Moe from the three stooges and by his actions he has proven that the likness is more than just physical. What an ass. The Mav players also were against our troops and talked major shit about it at the beginning. It was on all the local news channels. I wish some conservative rich guys would start backing pro America movies to battle the commie pukes.

  116. Tom In Texas

    Mark Cuban is a man who confused luck for ability. Mark Cuban got wealthy when he sold his company to Yahoo for 3 Billion dollars. His was not the only company doing what his was doing, but his was the one that Yahoo purchased.

    Somewhere along the line, Mr. Cuban has gotten the idea that his delusional fantasies are somehow rooted in fact. This, along with 3 billion dollars makes him an expert.

    If I had 3 billion dollars, there would be people willing to believe in my delusional fantasies as well, no matter what they were.

    The easy response to this is to make sure that the Dallas Mavericks have no one at their games. Any one attending a Dallas Mavericks game is a traitor to this country and to our troops. Boycott the Dallas Mavericks and put pain in mark cuban’s pocketbook. I represent a Dallas Company and I will let them know that I will take my business elsewhere if they do not boycott the Dallas Mavericks.
    There is one other thing about people like mark cuban. They hide from any personnel contact with the general population. You can bet one thing that mark cuban is a coward.

    Or a series for HBO on the MURDER CAPITAL NEW ORLEANS LOUISANA…

    I just wish we had finished the job when I was in the AOR the first time.

    What one person may see as a failure, others see as a strategy. Rather than cross borders to cull the Jihadis out of the surrounding countries, we wait for them to meet Allah in Iraq. As they show their heads, they are dispatched. This is a war of attrition that will take decades more to finish and one me must stay the course to win.

    The alternatives are too horrendous to imagine as our way of life will eventually disappear if the Jihad against the West is successful.

(He made the argument that the ones who started this war never served in nam so the mistakes there had to be revisited. I wonder where he was during nam and today. I would suspect not in nam and certainly not in Iraq) Funny the hate comments I get are from anti semetic scum. You would think Cuban would wake from his doldrums and stop marching, eyes averted, toward the ovens. What an ahole.

He definitely hates America. It is time we start watching those 9/11 films for pukes like this that have forgotten the danger. Those brave men and women in Iraq for 6 years HAVE KEPT THIS GREAT NATION BOMB FREE. Cuban should be kissing Bush’s rear for protecting him and his family. Under the impeached felon Americans were blown up every 1.5 years. Cuban you deserve the future you are going to get, trust me, Americans that love this country will let you know and it will probably hurt. Let’s see how many people come see your WAR CARTOON. I don’t blame you for not meeting the troops, their heroism would dwarf your treasonist face and would shrink you to the itty bitty worm you are. Keep it up, shit like this will guarantee a Republican president. We see what your liberals have done to Congress = lowest ratings in history, the truth isn’t on your side, so you HAVE TO MAKE UP your own history……..what sorry pigs and Depalma deserves to go down with you…..God bless this great nation and the finest military in the world fighting World War III with every media and left wing extremist pig fighting against them and they STILL ENLIST AND GO FIGHT. Cuban if you hate it here so BAD PLEASE GET OUT………..GO LIVE IN CUBA, YOU HAVE THE MONEY BUT THE REASON YOU DON’T IS THAT YOU ARE A CHICKEN CRAP, WE DON’T WANT YOU HERE ANYMORE EITHER.

    as an avid spurs fan, mark cuban is no friend of mine. and up until i read about the guy’s involvement in this new de palma film, i would quickly be the first guy so say i hate the sucker. but now, seeing cuban put his considerable fortune to good use, he is now a hero of mine. this film is not a critique of the troops, that is such a diversionary tactic designed to deflect the real message. the film is a critique of the real life-and-death consequences of the bush administration, and his neo con cronies, who are really the enemies of the troops. they have put them in harms way for no purpose other than their right wing fantasies. cuban should be applauded, not attacked. it never ceases to amaze me the way the right wing is so afraid of hones dissent, discussion, and argument.

    As Americans, we have people over there NOW!!! Besides the War stories, there are many reconstruction stories that are never heard. How many lives were and are being saved!!!

    For these two to make a story based on rumor is a slap in the of every citizen of this planet! When there are catastrophes, the first thing you hear is where is the USA!

    Yes, we are not perfect…….but a bunch of two bit dictators strut around complaining about the USA and everyone in HOLYWOOD (YES, I MEAN IT) believes the USA is
    wrong and the Brutal Dictator is a saint sent down from on high.

    IF they are so ashamed of the USA, find somewhere else to live and make your fortunes. At this time, I would Like to apologize to all though countries that get stuck with them!!!! I AM SORRY!

    Sent to NBA League Officials:

    Dear NBA Officials:

    Your team franchise owner, Mark Cuban, of the Dallas Mavericks has seen fit to produce and market a movie entitled, ” Redacted.”

    This film slanders and degrades the members of the United States Military. Our young men and women are fighting around this World of ours as is their pledge to keep all Americans free, yet your own Team Owner, Mr. Cuban, is seeing to it that the names and actions of those soldiers, marines, airmen and sailors are disgraced.

    We, the American People, are watching you….you, the National Basketball Association. We have paid our money to sit in your arenas and watch your product. We have seen the NBA dedicate games and game openings to the fighting American troops overseas. And now, you allow this one owner of one of your franchises, Mr. Mark Cuban, to defame our troops and our Country.

    I would expect that you do one of two things: 1. You insist that Mr. Cuban withdraw this movie from production or 2. You immediately strip Mr. Cuban of his team ownership in the Dallas Mavericks.

    Thank you and don’t forget…we are watching what you do.

    Respectfully,

    XXXXXXX
    A Fan

    How can Cuban be a so called staunch supporter of the troops with his Foundation for deceased/injured troops and their families and then be involved in such a travesty toward our troops? Makes me wonder if he’s figured out how to capitalize from both sides of the issue.

  159. Tom Roberts

    It sure would be nice to see a film like this, only about the atroctities done by radical Islamists instead of by American troops.
    But then I guess the film makers would be accused of being racists.

  160. Ed

    Mr. Cuban (if that’s his real name) has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about. To say that American troops are monsters is like saying that Hitler was the equivelant to Mother Teresa. It just doesn’t wash. After this, I hope Mr Cuban never needs protection from our military, because I don’t think he’ll get it.
    I think that Mavericks fans and all fans of the NBA for that matter should “redact” their tickets when it comes to a Mavericks game. The power of the market speaks louder than any weapon of war. I hope all Dallas fans boycott all home games. Then maybe this idiot will realize he’s alone in this large world. Just remember, he still has to pay the players, the arenas and everyone else connected with his franchise.
    May Mr Cuban and Mr DePalma both rot in hell.

  161. Lorin Casper

    What would be appropriate is if all the NBA teams refused to play in Dallas or have Dallas play them. The only Cuban could do is to sell the team at a BIG LOSS to whoever would touch it since it would be radioactive from his ownership.

The web site I found is Dubya Dubya Dubya LetsRoll911 dot org.

    B.A. Hokom Said:

    De Palma is nothing more than a person obsessed with murder and rape, every one of his films glorifies these sick attributes. He is a contributor to expose youth to graffic violence and he bathes himself with the victoms blood. The hypocracy of this film and his intent with it shows a weak man who will stop at nothing to promote himself at the expense of all victoms of war, the fact that he believes he is on the moral high ground is evident enough of his hypocracy. What happened in Iraq was not the consequence of war but the choice of a sick person and his friends loyal in a combat structure but not to his crime. De Palma will not change the course of Iraq with his film, he will more than likely win praise from the left wingnuts and an increasingly irrelavent Oscar award like M. Moore did. Punishing this country and especially the soldiers in Iraq because of one incredibly awful event seems to be the only trick these anti-victory folk can muster, and we will have to listen to them lecture us on why the world hates us, its because of their greed and ruthless goals of getting rich at the expense of all the rest of us. I never go to see movies anymore, they are nothing but trash, filled with sick horror and twisted messages, messages that the rest of the world sees. The culture of violence in this country rests entirely on the shoulders of those in Hollywood who profit from fictional murder, rape and abuse, hell they give themselves awards for creating this crap. Never again in this age will we see a film director with the skill of Alfred Hitchcock and/or David Lean, whom both managed to show wars without redaction.

  185. J. Swift

    Brian De Palma has just nuked his own credibility. Likewise with Mr. Cuban. To make a film damming the Iraq War without actually having visited Iraq is cinematic masturbation. Both proponents and critics have strapped on flak jackets to visit Iraq and see the situation on the ground for themselves. Yet, Cuban and De Palma won’t go anywhere near the danger. Instead, they use the death and carnage of others to promote themselves as some kind of heroes. These guys are worse than ambulance chasers. At least ambulance chasers show up at the site of death and slaughter to make their money. De Palma and Cuban won’t risk danger to even their manicures. They come off as self-glorifying poseurs. This is what happens when two men with no cajones have money to waste.

  186. Y'all_are_funny

    I love DePalma and can’t wait to see this film. None of the criticisms against him seem to hold any water. He’s a filmmaker/journalist: he pulls together actual footage and shows it to a public that doesn’t get the whole story in Iraq. Good for him. What’s really frightening is how much violence I see in the comment boards directed towards him. THAT is great witness to the type of behavior (of many Americans) that DePalma is trying to show the world.

  187. Stephen Boone

    Mark Cuban isn’t worthy of being called a piece of shit. I have followed the Mavs since they started and I wish this diseased scumsucker would sell them so I can enjoy watching again. God knows none of my money will go toward anything that he gets a dime from. I watch free TV only. Mark. Die. Please.

  188. Bill Simpson

    Guys like Cuban and DePalma make this conservative Republican reconsider my stance on abortion. They both are wastes of breath that the rest of us could use. Maybe if some of Cuban’s Maverick hoops fans knew what a moron and coward he is, they might stop attending.

    I’ll probably see this film. You can’t really criticize it until you watch it, so I don’t see why so many are whining. If you don’t want to support the film, then watch it online or something. Troops in Iraq have done many disgusting things. Of course, whether this is typical or not is a point to be debated, but it can not be denied. This writer speaks of propaganda, but what is his article besides more propaganda? Getting news from sites like this is a horrible idea. If any doubt the atrocities committed by U.S. troops, merely look online for pictures of mutilated children, and tell me that these are not atrocious. I’m not saying that troops in Iraq are evil, most are not. Most have done great things, but like all others, they are human.

  196. Josh

    Having not seen the movie, nor possessing any real interest going to watch it, I’d like to say that a majority of you are missing the point.

    Regardless of your political beliefs, where you’re from, what you’ve been through, etc. the great thing about the situation is that we live in a country where someone like Cuban (whether you despise him or not) has the right to make such a movie without fear of having someone hunt you down in the night, torture you without reason, then send you to prison for the rest of your life.

    Hate it or love it, it’s in the Constitution. God Bless the U.S.A.

  197. Pakkratt

    james is correct. Sadly, just as the traitor’s M.M.’s (I refuse to type his name) despicable loathsome propaganda piece Far. 9/11, so to will De Palma’s and Mark Cuban’s (American traitors) movie be seen by the uneducated easily manipulated masses. First pirated to Europe and Asia, then rapidly spreading like a virus to every corner over the world to be sold for $1 or $2 in every bootleg DVD shops from Kuala Lumpur to Kandahar. This is dangerous.
    They don’t care about sales, just the spread of propaganda and lies, just like Al Gore’s bullshit film that is actually being pushed on Our children in public schools, without debate.

  198. Mark Cuban

    This site is hysterical. Not one of you has seen the film, yet you have no problem spilling vitriol and recommending bodily harm. First class all the way.
    Check out the very first film i picked up for distribution a couple years ago. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voices_of_Iraq

    100PCT pro Iraqi war. Got the same shit from the left as you people are giving fromthe right.

    If and when you see Redacted, you will know it is definitely Anti War. But it is also Pro Troops. The hero is the soldier who recognizes that those involved in the crime (which takes up just a small part of the movie), are the aberration and someone needs to make sure the truth is told so not all troops are condemned.

    THe irony is this soldier wanted to protect his unit from the hate that would be spewed by lack of knowledge. The exact same thing that is coming from most of you.

    And to the clueless person who suggested that the Fallen Patriot Fund hasnt handed out grants in 2 years, feel free to check our tax records. We continue to make sure that the Patriots who fall through the cracks and need financial support for themselves and their families get the support they need.

    I will never ever support any of Mark Cuban’s ventures in the future, including buying tickets to his documentaries/movies, buying stock in any of his future IPOs (if and when) or supporting the Dallas Mavericks.

    What a shame to see the same Hollywood that made Yankee Doodle Dandy with Jimmy Cagney singing and dancing his way to patriotic songs, to this hate-filled nonsense. No Democrat/liberal in his/her right mind can defend this project from not being anti-American. What a shame to see foreigners like me come to this country because we want our kids to have a better future and opportunities that we never ever imagined that were there, and to see propagandists like Mr Cuban bite the very hand that feeds them, spit on that very soil that has enabled them to realize their God given potentials and encourage hatred of that very nation that has protected them from all kinds of calamities that they can never ever imagine of.

    Where are the Ronald Reagans and John Waynes of the world, that motivated me to leave my friends and family and come to this mighty nation. I find that this nation is run by elites, academics and politicians who have no gonads. If they call themselves men, they should get rid of their skirts, wear some pants and make this nation respected again in the eyes of the world. God bless the men and women in uniform for all their sacrifices — it is those sacrifices that ironically make Mark Cuban hate America and folks like me, fresh off the boat, embrace it and pray for it. God Bless this nation’s troops! God Bless the greatest nation on His green earth!!

    Mark Cuban -

    I notice you were allowed to post your talking points here. Too bad you didn’t allow the same dissent on your own website when this first came up:

    UPDATE: Debbie Schlussel caught this early.:

    … Billionaire NBA Owner/Producer Mark Cuban can’t take the heat from Schlussel readers with complaints over this anti-American troops film. Read the comments section on this post, in which Cuban writes that he’s setting his filter to delete all complaints about this movie. Hey, Mark, you know what they say about your promiximity to the kitchen when you can’t take the heat . . . .

    So in order to make a pro-troops film you chose a rape as the centerpiece? DePalma: “I knew I had my story!”

  219. Nick in Virginia

    I wonder why DePalma and Cuban didn’t focus on Pfcs. Menchacha and Tucker. You remember them, the two Americans who were captured by the terrorists, subjected to several days of torture, during which they were beaten, castrated, disembowled, and ultimately decapitated. All within the bounds of the Geneva Conventions, of course.

  220. Pancho&Cisco

    Damn the truth is hard to fathom. Dragged into a war by b.s. ‘intel,’ lied to at every corner, and anyone who was 100 percent correct on what would happen in Iraq who happened to be in the govt was fired, while others were completely pushed to the side and we had to hear the crap ad nauseum by the goofballs, politicos and pundits alike (left and right alike as well).

    Now we hear these same morons, the 100 percent wrong club, spouting the same crap about Iran, as we knew they would about 8 or so years ago.

Remeber, The head Saudi Inman only gave permission (FATWA) to kill 10 million Americans, and not more than 4 million can be children. If Hillary or whatever NWO pupet doesn’t retain power, and the American people take back this Great Nation these tratorist idividuals will be lucky to only have all their assets confiscated and be deported to their favorite Peoples Republic!

  230. Bashman

    MR. CUBAN WITH ALL DUE RESPECT:

    The problem is not free expression by DePalma. The problem is not your involvement with a film like this. It is every American’s right to freely express themselves, as guaranteed by the Constitution.

    It is this document and the principles it holds that each and every member of our armed forces takes an oath to preserve, protect, and defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    The problem is not that Mr. DePalma wanted to nauseate the American people.

    The problem is not that many believe Mr. DePalma may be inaccurately portraying the exception rather than the rule in Iraq with regard to the conduct of our troops.

    The problem is with the timing.

    This war is not over.

    Vietnam? Sure, its over. WW II? Why the hell not, its over. WW I? Sure! Its over. Many of us may still find the content of some films about wars gone past biased, despicable, and skewed, but its ok, the enemy can’t feed off of it s propaganda any longer because those wars are OVER.

    This war is not over, and therefore this film falls into the category that many would consider giving aid and comfort to the enemy. In this way:

    Giving the enemy, who is daily trying to kill men and women from my neighborhood, from your neighborhood…images and sound to which they can latch onto and encourage each other by. They can watch something like this and say “See, those Americans are ALL savages.” And become more bold and more angered. Emboldened by the exception rather than the rule.

    Emboldened by FICTION.

    The idea in war is defeat your enemy, not aid him.

    Please think about this.

The name eventually stuck, both because it was reasonably accurate, and because neoconservatives came to accept that they were, in fact, conservative.[2] The idea that liberalism “no longer knew what it was talking about” became one of the central themes of neoconservatism…”

    It Didn’t Work

    By William F. Buckley Jr.

    “I can tell you the main reason behind all our woes—it is America.” The New York Times reporter is quoting the complaint of a clothing merchant in a Sunni stronghold in Iraq. “Everything that is going on between Sunni and Shiites, the troublemaker in the middle is America.”

    One can’t doubt that the American objective in Iraq has failed.

  246. craftyandsly

    Apparently, Mark Cuban and DePalma would have the world believe that all of America’s troops are vicious rapists and wanton murderers. Why? Because of the felonious acts of a few who happened to be members of said military, then, by extension, Mark Cuban and DePalma indict *all* military members, past and present.

    If memory serves me correctly, another film director (named Roman Polanski) was charged with five counts of rape of a teenage girl (Natasha Kinsky). Thus, by extension (only in Mark Cuban’s and DePalma’s world, apparently), this would mean that all Hollywood film directors are rapists, as well.

    Hmmmm. Methinks there will never be a film financed by Mark Cuban which depicts a DePalma as a felon, who by extension, must also be a fellow rapist.

    My word. What rubbish.

    I’m for sending those SOB soldiers whom raped that girl and killed that girl’s family over to the Iraqi courts. Let the Iraqis, themselves, handle these convicted, sorry excuses of sub-humans in their own, gentle way.

    As for Cuban and DePalma?

    Freeze all their assets, effective immediately. Grow some balls, President Bush. Treason is treason, and my sons do not deserve to die overseas, and all because some sorry &@%#&!*’s wish to advance propaganda against members of our most excellent military.

    I think it’s safe to say that IF (that’s a big if) any American troops are over there raping people, they are the minority, not the majority. And, by America’s laws, they will be punished if caught. Now, if any of these Muslim terrorists made it over here to America, do you think the rapists would be in the minority or the majority? They would be in the majority, of course. Do you think their “government” (for lack of a better term) would punish them? Hell, no! They’d give them a medal.
    Just another reason to thank our troops for fighting the war over there.

    Your English sucks, which leads me to believe that you are either retarded, or not from the US. Maybe both. This Cuban and De Palma project undermines the troops and paints us in a bad light. I risked my life in Iraq, so have thousands of others. Many of the brave men and women did not come back. This film does nothing but make a mockery of our sacrifices. Don’t even think for a second that you can fool us when you say you “are not against the troops”. If you support Cuban and Depalma, you ultimately cross the line. You ARE against the troops. You have no idea what this does for them on the ground. You just love that fact that it supports your political ideology, without regards to what it might do to people actually engaging in the war, rather you arm-chair general it. You mask of support fools no one. I would call you a traitor but you would have to love America before you turned your back on her. I would just call you my enemy. And that is coming from the troops.

    Punch yourself in the face until I tell you to stop.

    If and when you see Redacted, you will know it is definitely Anti War. But it is also Pro Troops. The hero is the soldier who recognizes that those involved in the crime (which takes up just a small part of the movie), are the aberration and someone needs to make sure the truth is told so not all troops are condemned.

    I call B.S. Cuban’s money might buy him faux respect for a time but the lovefest with Cuban isn’t going to last forever. Cuban’s now joined the club consisting of Michael Al-Moore, Cindy Sheehan, and fellow scumbag and American hating billionaire George Soros. And I hope I convince others to think likewise.

    Scott Hinckley, was supposed to go to dinner at Neil Bush’s house the day after John Hinckley shot Reagan.

    Bush Son Had Dinner Plans With Hinckley Brother Before Shooting
    The Associated Press Domestic News
    March 31, 1981, Tuesday, PM cycle

    HOUSTON
    The family of the man charged with trying to assassinate President Reagan is acquainted with the family of Vice President George Bush and had made large contributions to his political campaign, the Houston Post reported today.

    The newspaper said in a copyright story, Scott Hinckley, brother of John W. Hinckley Jr., who allegedly shot Reagan, was to have dined tonight in Denver at the home of Neil Bush, one of the vice president’s sons.

    The newspaper said it was unable to reach Scott Hinckley, vice president of his father’s Denver-based firm, Vanderbilt Energy Corp., for comment. Neil Bush lives in Denver, where he works for Standard Oil Co. of Indiana.

    In 1978, Neil served as campaign manager for his brother, George W. Bush, the vice president’s oldest son, who made an unsuccessful bid for Congress. Neil lived in Lubbock throughout much of 1978, where John Hinckley lived from 1974 through 1980.

    On Monday, Neil Bush said he did not know if he had ever met 25-year-old John Hinckley.

    “I have no idea,” he said. “I don’t recognize any pictures of him. I just wish I could see a better picture of him.

    Sharon Bush, Neil’s wife, said Scott Hinckley was coming to their house as a date of a girl friend of hers. “I don’t even know the brother. From what I know and I’ve heard, they (the Hinckleys) are a very nice family and have given a lot of money to the Bush campaign. I understand he was just the renegade brother in the family. They must feel awful,” she said.

    The dinner was canceled, she added.

    George W. Bush said he was unsure whether he had met John W. Hinckley.

    Yes that really was Mark Cuban who responded on the board. I know that because I emailed him directly and actually received a response from him. He found out about this article because of my email to him blasting him. He was forefront enough to respond to a very aggressive email from me and we exchanged a couple of additional responses/follow ups. IF what he said in his email to me is accurate then the context of the reviews of the movie have been grossly misleading. I don’t know and only time will tell. when it hits the states I guess we will all know where he stands. I do know that DePalma is a complete ass though. He and his fellow members of the Church of Liberalism.

  268. connie in dallas

    well first of all i think that anyone who is bashing cuban on this needs to research it alittle better. read up on the actual content of the move!
    it is not just troop bashing, it is get a clue people.
    it goes to show what being in the war does to our guys and the issues (mentally) it can cause. it is about awareness. from other sources that have been in iraq and it is their story that they are bringing.
    yes it may be classified as a fictional move but it does depict some truth.
    if you believe all the b.s. you read that only comes from one source then you need to open your eyes and do alittle more reasearch before you judge.

    Why is Cuban un-american? Could it be because he has a different view from you? Is it un-american to question the government? Have you met Mark Cuban? What makes him different from the hordes of the super-rich who support Bush? Is there a difference other than the political affiliation? Would he be your hero if he bashed “dubya”? He is not even from Texas like us but from the super rich east coast. Do you know what Cuban thinks about the war? Did you watch the video? People who automatically jump to conclusions are idiots (like me). I agree with Cuban on this point if he is talking about the troops having no choice to fight this war. If you think that you can hang with me for 5 minutes because of my view then please by all means come to the gracie jujitsu academy and act like you are a tough guy. Democrats and republicans are exactly the same, neither knows what they are talking about unless they live with the iraqis who are dying and I find that hard to believe as they would find it hard to actually go to Iraq in an upcoming election year. Did Jesus ask questions or go along for the ride? Asking questions and being doubtful of your government does not make you a traitor, going along without asking real questions does. If you think different than I truly feel sorry for you as you are not only a true traitor to the U.S. but a traitor who is spineless and a coward. Please leave that to the french. :idea:

    Cuban is a businessman trying to make a buck. That he would sanction the use of one criminal episode to smear the rest of the troops is opportunism at its worst.

    Di Palma picked one isolated incident where some soldiers did a very bad thing for which they’ve been given long prison sentences.

    Never let the facts get in the way of a good story. Or in this case a docu-drama. Got a cable channel you are desperate to make a sucess out of?

  283. Fred

    To add to my previous comment: This is about Cuban and money. He may or may not be a lefty but more germane is that he IS about money. Thus if you want to hit it where it hurts find some way of crimping the money without touting his docu-propa-drama. ( read do not promote his movie for him )

    This posting is way too long. Interesting that all the republican right is upin arms when noone seems to have seen the film/doco/bullshit. Interesting that this post has encouraged the feedback on >250 posts and that the objt of the vitriol has even posted a reply.Give the guy a break, its only a movie. See it if you wanna see rape and torture, stay home if you want to see the same stuff on the tv.
    get a life. The guy is a dandy,although a rich one and if he wants to buy a team good luck to him. To say that you aint gonna support the team anymore, well remember there are lots of other people who support opposition teams that would have nothing to to with the TEAM. so what.

    I get the feeling that cuban wants to stir the pot and what a pot he has stirred here, if flushing out the rabid right was his objective, hes won, and if his objective was to denigrate the wonderful job the troops have /are doing in Iraq & Afghanistan then he won again.
    If this site has flushed out upteen trolls and they have beensorted by the team and others then so be it.

    Keep in mind that in war lots of terrible things happen, bringing them to a movie house near you dosent make them go away nor does if make them of lesser important. Its the way war is., Kill or be killed. Lots of atrocities ahppen in wars, they arnt a bible sunday school picnic, and neither they should be lampooned in a sick movie to show that one army is worse than another. RTake the case of the USSR finally taking over Berlin. Read the history.That was mass.
    You know what, shooting or hanging the messenger is not really the way to prove a point.
    Neither is punishing the team by redacting support.Most of these guys are in it for the game. They may make statements that rile the supporters but if the guy signing the pay cheks sez boo, then they say boo too. Its called survival of the fittest. The alph male sh*t.They all wanna be alpha males, if the #1A/M sez BOO then why shouldnt they copy.

    As Bashman says, its all in the timing, and unless cuban if rooting for the jihadis and wants a complete surrender by the American people then this movie is not really the right time to be made.

    Remember the main VietNam movies were made years after the americans and Australians ran away from thieir responsibilities and left their allies to be butchered by the cong and the NVA who couldnt get steam up in the real war.I remember it well, I dont want to see it happen again to those who support us in Iraq. We cannot leave them to the fate that they know will decend on them if the American public loses faith in the conflict and votes to pull out.

    Remember there is only one super power, its the American People, not the American Military, The military is ordered by the CIC, not by a general staff. Thats why the American military is so good at what it does, and isnt looking over its shoulder to see if it needs to turn to weapons on the civilian population at home like most other militaries.

    Perhaps that wouldnt be a bad thing at this present time as from what I see on the MSM and the internet, the fifth column and the ones who give comfort to the enemy are becoming increasingly vocal as they have no fear of retributiuon.
    Patriotism? whats that, something to wipe your ass with, but not here jack, most of us love our countries and will defend them with our lives.

    “Why is Cuban un-american?
    Could it be because he has a different view from you?”

    Nope. It is the REASON why he has this point of view.

    “Is it un-american to question the government?”

    Is it un-american to kill armed people? (I’ll give you a hint: it matters what people and why.)

    “Why is Cuban un-american?”

    BECAUSE HE IS SPREADING AND BELIEVING OBVIOUS NONSENSE (”Loose Change”, “Reacted”) WHICH DEFAMES USA AND ITS TROOPS. A nonsense with the level of intellectual sophistication about the same as Hamas cartoons for kids in Palestine. So either Cuban is a COMPLETE idiot (which is not the case) or he has a desire to believe and act this way (which is the case). And that’s of course un-american.

  287. Boombop

    DePalma said that going in it was his intention to make a film that would nauseate the American people, and thereby lead to a US withdrawal from Iraq.

    “Everything that is in the movie is based on something I found that actually happened. But once I had put it in the script I would get a note from a lawyer saying you can’t use that because it’s real and we may get sued,” DePalma said.

    “SO I WAS FORCED TO FICTIONALIZE THINGS THAT WERE ACTUALLY REAL.”

    No one is jumping to conclusions. They’re reacting to what DePalma and Cuban said that they hope to achieve by making this movie.

    Just because the movie is based on a true story doesn’t mean it’s the gospel. It just means DePalma got an idea for a movie from something that really happen. In news its called spin. During war time its called propaganda and during anytime in Hollywood its called just plain bullshit!

    So Rob, Connie In Dallas, GJCA, hardrain77,(Oh yea in your post you said something about come into your home in the middle of the night and start gathering up the males and/or shooting everything? The Iraqis said that Saddam Hussein was real bad about doing that shit.I like to know where was the protest when that was going on.),Robert S., Repuke, and Steve “Radamisto” J. When DePalma and Mark Cuban come right out and say what they are up to. We are not judging. We are just reading what they’re advertising.

    Steve J. I have to say that you are a very intelligent young man. I was impress with what I read. When you get some common sense to go with that intelligences come on over to the American side we love to have ya!

    It’s really something to see so many posts saying things like ‘give me five minutes alone in a room with Cuban’ or worse. Lots of armchair bravado.

    Oh look, the KOS kids have come out to play. I love it when these Useful Idiots express their support for the troops by trying to smear them all as rapists and monsters. Here comes another great recruiting film for islamo-fascists and they have Cuban and De Palma to thank for it.

    All the Dhimmi lies in the world can’t force the majority to mistake treachery for “I was only questioning our involvement.” :roll: Big difference between the two.

    I wish they could be honest enough to make a stand. Are our soldiers their Band of Brothers or Rapists and Baby Killers?

    Last year, I watched about ten minutes of NBA basketball. I could not believe how hard it was to watch. I think the players, as a group, are one of the most selfish, uneducated, utterly moronic, criminal sets of people to walk the earth. The guys calling the game, especially the ex-players can’t even speak our language. FYI “this” in not spelled dis. And the phrase “there it is”, is not spelled/pronounced, “day it is”…I could go on. And now Mark Cuban. I hope he is booed alot this year. However his audience is probably not very well informed. I wonder what his players think?
    Oh Well, I will TiVo a game and only watch the commercials. Then I will make it known to all of the sponsors, that I and everyone I know will not be buying their products. FWIW

    Great site…good job

    Yeah, it’s only being in war that it does this to people. We have no rapist (child or not) and no murderers in the good ole USA. As I have said many times, our United States Military gets a percentage of what we as a society give them. You can blame the military all you want, but these rapists and murderers would have done this even if not in the military, it is their character. When will parents stand up and admit they have failed society and stop blaming everyone else including our military. ITS BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH’S FAULT. LIKE EVERYTHING IS.

    “rob-Why is Cuban un-american?” you are a buffoon. Questioning a war that the majority of congress and the American people supported getting into while we are in the middle of it is treason. We don’t get to change our minds once bullets start flying. There will be plenty of time to bitch when we are standing over ruins of our enemy’s camp. It’s about survival of the nation.

    Also, challenging those who disagree with you to come down to your jujitsu academy for a little fisticuffs is just plain juvenile. I’m sure if anyone wanted to show up you’d just get a mud hole stomped in your butt and then you’d be off to the races to file assault charges.

    Like Mark Cuban, rob with a little “r” is an american with a little “a”. That my friend’s is all the difference.

  295. Justin

    At worst, the right makes mistakes. But at worst, the left devolves into deep mental illness. Apart from how it’s “all about money” when you see wacko Americans want to ruin their own country (not understanding how if they help defeat America, their riches and privileges largely vanish), the Cubans and DePalmas of the world aren’t worth paying attention to or worrying about, not unless/until they run for Congress or the White House. Everyone who supports our way of life had better vote in 2008, and everyone who wants to wake up five years from now in a free and strong country, had better not vote Democrat, because the libs want to take money from hard-working people and give it to the criminals and irresponsible folks out there who are, in a real sense, bigger enemies than Cuban or DePalma would be even if they made 1,000 of these films. The biggest propaganda danger to America is the insane “peace” movement, which is intellectual fraud of the highest order. The weaker and blinder America becomes, the more likely more wars we’ll be in. But the most dangerous thing of all, something that makes DePalma and Cuban look like the mosquitoes they are, is the fact that the stupid, the criminal, and the socialist elements in America are fast outbreeding the smart, the honest, and those who favor merit and private property and freedom over irrational living (socialism ignores rational thought, basic human motivations, and common sense on nearly all levels). Stop posting and starting having more babies, and bring them up the correct way. Apart from voting, it’s the most power you have to save America, a generation from today!

    Cuban does not hesitate to spits on the country that made his wealth possible for him. He is a narcissistic wannabe with a ton of money and the common sense of a horse’s ass.

    I am tired of the moonbat lefties that showing up here

    Y’all_are_funny

    I love DePalma and can’t wait to see this film. None of the criticisms against him seem to hold any water. He’s a filmmaker/journalist: he pulls together actual footage and shows it to a public that doesn’t get the whole story in Iraq. Good for him. What’s really frightening is how much violence I see in the comment boards directed towards him. THAT is great witness to the type of behavior (of many Americans) that DePalma is trying to show the world.

    The problem with your thiking is that he did not use actual footage and if he did it was taken out of context.
    Pat Dollard, Michael Yon, and Matt Sanchez are all credible journalist who are only sited by certain news outlets. But these three and others are the only real deal, Katie can go to the “Green Zone” for ratings,DePalma can slander the heros of our day and call themselves the authority on the GWOT (Global War on Terror for you lefties). They don’t go on patrols, or hang out with the troops on the ground but can pass judgment on the actions and reactions that can mean life or death for a Soldier, Airman, Sailor or MARINE.
    It is easy to sit back in the armchair and scream at the TV when you think that the faild play called by the football coach did not work, but put your own ass on the line and watch these very same people decide that the freedoms that they take for granted are not worth defending.

    I’d be pissed. However that is not what is happening in Iraq. If some country just decided to topple the brutal dictatorship that had oppressed my county for decades I’d be happy (as the vast majority of Iraqis are). I’d be even happier if the liberators brought more electrical power, better water and the chance to vote for my own leaders in democratic elections. If on the other hand some liberal bitch in the nation of the liberators began belittling my new found freedom I’d be quite angry, probably angry enough to call them stupid, uneducated liberal turds or something like that.

    Why not make a movie about a near-do-well young film maker that drugs and rapes a 13 year old girl and then leaves the US to avoid prosecution. When the douche bag finally returns to the US, much to his surprise, he is greeted with open arms from the Hollywood people, who want him to make more films. He goes on to make more fictional films under the guise of being non-fiction and gets an ego-centric buffoon that looks like Frankenstein without the neck bolts to fund him. Now here’s the part I like - Frankenstein has rapist over to his house and the guy does all sorts of nasty stuff to Frankenstein’s family (I mean, who’d of thought?). To avoid prosecution, film douche goes out of the US to avoid prosecution and everything keeps going in this circle. Hilarity ensues. Boy, this Hollywood movie idea stuff isn’t hard at all. Where’s my money?

    It’s not necessarily the “movie” we are all in an uproar about (although the timing sure the hell plays into the propaganda hands of the enemy) …

    It IS the agenda DePalma and Cuban have telegraphed about the intent of their movie. To [lie] and say THIS is what’s REALLY happening in Iraq (i.e., our troops are raping, murdering and burning bodies on whole) … and to try and turn the public against the war through this movie because of this one horrific incident.

    If you’ve never visited this site before then you are unaware that we are a mix of active duty military, “retired” veterans, family members of such, and plain old American Joes/Jills that refuse to allow anyone to shit all over our troops.

  318. sullly

    “….. Boy, this Hollywood movie idea stuff isn’t hard at all. Where’s my money?”

    Mark Cuban has it. Just call and ask….

  319. sullly

    Mark Cuban said:
    “This site is hysterical. Not one of you has seen the film,….”

    Mr. DePalma (in his interview) as well as you (here) Mr. Cuban describe it sufficiently to know that should not and will not happen.

    “… yet you have no problem spilling vitriol and recommending bodily harm. First class all the way….”

    Oh I get it…sarcasm. What is definitely NOT “first class” is propaganda like this film while boots are on the ground and Americans are fighting and dying.

    “Check out the very first film i picked up for distribution a couple years ago. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voices_of_Iraq
    100PCT pro Iraqi war….”

    Blind squirrels…. acorns…. Hey! How about a sequel?!?!

    “…Got the same shit from the left as you people are giving fromthe right….”

    NUH UH!! People on “the left” don’t like this war?? Some of them think soldiers should even shoot their officers?? Would be happy if our President were to die? As this ever present MSWORD Paper Clip might say: ‘You seem to be equivocating under morally dubious circumstances. Would you like some help?’

    “…. If and when you see Redacted, you will know it is definitely Anti War. But it is also Pro Troops…..”

    Yeah? There’s some “troops” here that disagree with you. This is war Mr. Cuban. I understand you have never served yourself so you assuredly do not know this but ‘support’ of “troops” includes supporting their will to fight. Propaganda directed against that has been considered criminal activity in the not so distant past. And ‘dissent’ and ‘propaganda’ are not the same thing.

    “… The hero is the soldier who recognizes that those involved in the crime (which takes up just a small part of the movie), are the aberration and someone needs to make sure the truth is told so not all troops are condemned….”

    Really? That does not jibe with Mr. DePalma’s characterization and a review in the Hollywood Reporter. Are you sure you’ve discussed the aims of his film enough to be financing it?

    “…THe irony is this soldier wanted to protect his unit from the hate that would be spewed by lack of knowledge. The exact same thing that is coming from most of you….”

    Wrong again. There is no moral equivalence between ‘the right’ and ‘the left’ on this issue. Particularly once boots are on the ground and American men and women are wounded or dying so that those of us at home (some actually in mansions if you can believe THAT) don’t need to face the jihadist menace ourselves. NOTE: Although I may enjoy that opportunity myself, innocent civilians might get hurt before they get around to me. Say in a REAL tall building in a major American city.

    “….And to the clueless person who suggested that the Fallen Patriot Fund hasnt handed out grants in 2 years, feel free to check our tax records. We continue to make sure that the Patriots who fall through the cracks and need financial support for themselves and their families get the support they need….”

    Run your plans for the film by any of them? Get THEIR thoughts in a ‘focus group’?

    “… if you all dont like it, thats your own problem”

    roger that…. reading you loud and clear… one last thing…
    From the mouth of Depalma:
    “The movie is an attempt to bring the reality of what *IS* (emphases mine) happening in Iraq to the American people,” he told reporters after a press screening.
    “The pictures are what will stop the war. One only hopes that these images will get the public incensed enough to motivate their Congressmen to vote against this war,” he said.

    And from your reference of choice, WIKIPEDIA…
    “Propaganda is the deliberate, systematic attempt to shape perceptions, manipulate cognitions, and direct behavior to achieve a response that furthers the desired intent of the propagandist.”

    Quote from Marcus Tullius Cicero

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear.”

    Not a surprise. Cuban is no stranger to conspiracy theories. He even thinks that the NBA has a running conspiracy to grant one of the smallest TV markets in the league (San Antonio) the championship every other year.
