Over at National Geographic headquarters, security is being increased after numerous threats over an upcoming film about the SEALs’ takedown of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan.
One one hand, it’s hard to get too upset in this case, since the movie was produced by Obama backer Harvey Weinstein and is scheduled to show on the NatGeo cable channel two days before the election. What convenient timing for the President!
On the other hand, the shrieks from Muslims over a little docu-drama show how a European level of Islamic violence against free speech is now growing in America. Usually the Muslims threatening carnage claim they are defending Islam from blasphemy, but in fact Allah’s slaves will kill over the slightest excuse.
Interestingly, there’s a Hollywood film in the hopper on the same subject from Kathryn Bigelow, the director of Hurt Locker, titled Zero Dark Thirty, which was postponed until after the election because of criticism from Republicans. Will violent Muslims threaten theater-goers when the film is shown in December? We shall see.
Following is a preview clip from NatGeo’s “Seal Team Six” film, which jihadist Muslims find insulting, even though they haven’t seen it. (Of course we wouldn’t have this problem if it weren’t for Washington’s policies of crazy-diverse immigration that welcome the historic enemies of Western civilization.)
If Muslims riot around the world over the National Geographic docu-drama, will Obama direct the proper authorities to arrest Harvey Weinstein, as he apparently did regarding schlock Mohammad movie guy Nakoula B. Nakoula? Given his political clout, it’s doubtful Weinstein is worried.
NatGeo TV on terror alert, New York Post, October 17, 2012
The National Geographic Channel has beefed up security at its Washington headquarters after being “bombarded” by threats over its upcoming film, “SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden,” a source said yesterday.
The movie has prompted enough threats from what one source called “Muslim extremist groups” that the network felt it had to take the action.
“They have been bombarded with phone calls and blog posts, saying that anyone airing a film like this is asking for trouble,” the source added.
“Enough threats have come in that the network is on higher security alert. They have a huge public building, with a museum and 1,600 people working.”
The network was already receiving sharp criticism for its decision to debut the feature-length TV movie Nov. 4, two days before the presidential election. Critics charged the timing was calculated to boost President Obama’s campaign.
The film’s distributor is staunch Obama supporter Harvey Weinstein. The channel, also called NatGeo, denied that accusations.
A rep for National Geographic said only that the channel will air the film “no matter what,” adding, “We are big believers in the First Amendment.”
A source told The Post that the reaction is far from what NatGeo is used to.
“They’ve never seen such a dramatic reaction. It’s not like there’s outrage over airing a documentary on the Grand Canyon,” the source said.
