Ugh. Well, you knew this was coming. From Breitbart:
However, there is one thing about the movie that really upsets me. It is blatant anti-military and less blatant anti-American. […]
There are scientists assigned by the New World Order to Pandora to negotiate a peaceful solution, but they are overruled by the military and the business interests at every turn. Eventually, the military solution is the final solution. The military then attacks with pure hatred and determination the locals on the planet. They do not care for the sanctity of the alien life, whether it be women or children.
The glee with which the American Marines participate in this massacre is appalling and does not show the true feelings and concerns of the real United States Military. James Cameron should apologize to the American Military and should make a statement that he does not truly feel this way about them. He should also apologize to the American public for painting our young men and women that defend this country as cold-blooded killers.
However, I am sure the Mr. Cameron will not do this as the movie is obviously a political comment on Iraq and Afghanistan. [via Fark]
He ends his editorial by saying that we should boycott Starwood Hotels because they say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas”. Really. Because political columnists are nothing if not shrill and barely coherent. “An’ another thing, Mr. Cameron, why come when I go to da Sizzler, mah food done git cooked by a Messican!?”
The sad thing is, even though you can’t go through life worrying what these A-holes who twist everything into an attack on their imaginary way of life that they saw in a soap commercial from the 50s will think, James Cameron brought this on himself. As I already pointed out, he basically made a movie about evil mercenaries who kill noble natives who were just minding their own business, worshiping trees and raping pterodactyls. It may not be a liberal plot, but it is a pretty cheesy story. Why not just make the villain a rich lady who wants to make a coat from the blue cat-monkey pelts?
