The stupid... it burns!
Nutshelled: A bunch of real muricans made an actual movie about the liberals' war on Christmas and freedom, with the main antagonists being the ACLO(American Civil Liberties Organization), and the protagonist being the mayor who wants to do state-endorsed religion. There's even climate change denialism references in there!

There's a link to the full version in the "related videos" side bar if you're feeling really, really masochistic.

Quote from: From Cracked.com
If you think there is a War on Christmas, you're at best a ****brained nutbag, yet highly educated Bill O'Reilly has said several times that the war was real and his side won. Unfortunately, winning an imaginary war only you can see is like jerking off into a tube sock and bragging that you sweet-talked it into anal.

I really can't say it better than Seanbaby already has. :D

Actually Abe Lincoln riding Grizzly with a M4 and the Constitution is probably the best solution to state rights secessionists.

Just goes to show that the religious right can be just as intrusive as the overly political correct left.

I only had to get that far into the first amendment of the US constitution to find the flaw in this guy's plan.  Judging by the trailer, any non-christians in that little town are probably villains, rather than people who don't want their rights trampled.

Re: The stupid... it burns!
So, if this movie is indeed poorly acted and poorly researched, why post a thread about it and advertise it, thereby inflicting it on others?  Why not let it go gently into that dark night?

Cause the stupidity isn't plainly obvious to everybody. If you never challenge myths because they are plainly false, you end up with more people believing them.

That would work if anyone was challenging, but this appears to be designed for "laugh with me at the stupid people", which really serves no useful purpose.

Plus, if the film really is as bad as people are making it out to be, then the challenge is no more persuasive than knocking down a straw man.

What is there to challenge? Its 3 parts fairy tale, 2 parts conspiracy theory crap, with a dash of good old fashioned crazy thrown in.

Well if you don't agree with Karaj either, that's nice, but it's not helping his case...

Re: The stupid... it burns!
The sad thing is I know people who would believe every piece of bull**** this movie puts forth as literal truth, sadder still I'm related to some of them.

I like how the comments and ratings sections have been disabled, must of had too many people calling them out on said bull****.

My favorite part - from the trailer - is that the only non-Caucasian in the entire film also happens to be the "villian."

@ NGT: Yar. Thought I edited to quote his post and make a separate reply to yours. Guess it didn't go through.

Anyway:

That would work if anyone was challenging, but this appears to be designed for "laugh with me at the stupid people", which really serves no useful purpose.

Is anyone inclined to defend the video, or its message for that matter? Cause without that all any refutation or challenge is still 'let's laugh at the stupid people' but with lots more words.

Re: The stupid... it burns!
Not to mention that "Let's point and laugh at stupid people" is a challenge in and of itself. It's a refusal to view their point of view as anything other than comedy. A refutation of their points actually helps legitimise them.
