Film Festival Right in Left's Backyard

Tuesday, 19 October 2004 12:00 AM

Perhaps the success of Michael Moore’s propaganda pieces, disguised as documentaries, has inspired those on the political right to create something for a waiting audience. For three days that audience cheered, booed, laughed, mocked, cried, and gave standing ovations to filmmakers.

Three full-length films did what Hollywood has refused to do and made the case for the importance of confronting the Islamofascist terrorists in Iraq. They were Lionel Chetwynd’s "Celsius 41.11," Roger Aronoff’s "Confronting Iraq" and Brad Maaske and Kurdish/American Jano Rosebiani’s "WMD: The Murderous Reign of Saddam Hussein." Up to 1.3 million innocents lost their lives at the hands of the Butcher of Baghdad.

Hollywood will make, and did make, a film that trashes the legacy of Ronald Reagan. Writer/director Steve Bannon, however, produced a compelling documentary called "In the Face of Evil" that sets the record straight.

Reagan’s 45-year struggle against communism, the greatest evil of the 20th century, clearly demonstrates that The Gipper was one of freedom’s giants in his century. Textbooks will memorialize “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” as one of history’s most empowering calls for freedom. Those words brought tears of joy to the so-called right-wing audience.

A decade and a half earlier, the stirring words inspired Eastern Europeans to tear down that wall and seize their freedom.

"Is It True What They Say About Ann?” featured the in-your-face Ann Coulter, author of "Treason" and other best sellers. In the film a young college airhead asks her to sign his shirt labeled “TRAITOR.” Ann was happy to oblige with "Have fun in Guantanamo, Ann Coulter."

Syndicated radio talk show host Larry Elder, based at KABC in Los Angeles, used "Michael and Me" to correct some of the deliberate disinformation found in "Bowling for Columbine." Elder systematically and logically provided the case for the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms.

Young New York filmmaker Evan Maloney exposed for all the world to see some of the leftist America-hating propaganda on our college campuses in his "Brainwashing 101." All manner of diversity is celebrated on our campuses except diversity of political opinion.

In a panel discussion, producer David Zucker, much to the horror of his extended family, explained why he had become a “September 12 Republican.” His mom still cannot make the jump to vote for a Republican president, so he has advised her to “leave it blank.”

Michael Wilson’s "Michael Moore Hates America" debunked some of the propaganda in "Fahrenheit 9/11." The most unforgettable and funniest line in the film came from best-selling author Andrew Breitbart, who labeled Moore a “culinary Pinocchio” – every time he tells a lie, he gains a pound.

The theme among moviegoers and producers was consistent. There is a huge potential audience for films that appeal to Middle America’s values that are not being produced by secular leftist Hollywood. Because the Old Guard remains blinded by its agenda, a new wave of filmmakers is filling the need.

Attention, Hollywood directors, producers and actors: We don’t need you for our entertainment. In fact, if you hate America, hate our president and want to insult us with your craft, please move to France, where you belong. At the first sound from a cap pistol, you can join them by waving a white flag and surrendering.

Isn’t freedom and American capitalism a beautiful thing?
