What's In a Name?

Wendy A. Goldman:
Movies have the power to make us laugh or cry, to anger or inspire us, to move us, or just to provide escape. And, sometimes, they have a power beyond simple entertainment; they can influence new ways of thinking, feeling and pursuing our lives.

Movies are also one of the primary arenas in which the so-called “culture war” is fought, where the battle for the hearts and minds of the public, and the conflict between values considered traditional or conservative, and those considered progressive or liberal is played out—reaching people in a profound, instinctive way. Conservatives, while finding success at the ballot box, in talk radio, the blogosphere, and in cable news, have been less successful at the box office, and therefore, are playing catch-up in the culture war.

It is with this in mind that we have launched Crusader Pictures. Crusade means the vigorous advancement of a cause, and the cause at the heart of Crusader Pictures is to produce entertainment which stands up for individual liberty in a manner that will appeal to a wide audience.
Okay loser.

See if you can figure out what the hell the first project is all about. It seems to have something to do with this, but upside-down and backwards.

I look forward to the remake of "Triumph of the Will".

I'm interested in the comparison of the woman arrested for causing a disturbance by saying "spic" and the folks arrested for saying "Limbaugh".

Neighbours thought the word used was "Limburg", which of course in Belgium and parts of the Ardennes is a deadly insult.

I associate it with running around and killing people, because Jesus said so.

The remake will be called "Triumph Des Teabaggeren."

I got the impression that no one was arrested or anything else for saying "Limbaugh," because the entire project is fiction.

Oh, sorry. Satire: Judith Weizner Satires. Good luck w/ that, Judy. Try RIGHTNETWORK.

Gee-ziss!!

Well yeah, fiction. But if you're championing Limbaugh, saying his name proudly puts you on par with that swell lady who says "spic"?
