Ok, so I know I just posted about the Weinsteins and their pandering to the Christian coin, but it seems not all Jewpride is lost.
On December 25 (AKA Christmas) they will be releasing Black X-Mas, a snuff slasher flick.
The Christians and conservatives of the blogosphere have objected to this perceived insult to the sanctity of Santa, as one more assault in the so-called “War on Christmas.” Although most are pretty unoriginal and simply recycle this except from Nikki Fink’s Deadline Hollywood:
Shame, shame, shame on Harvey and Bob Weinstein, and their distributor MGM’s Harry Sloan, for opening a holiday-themed slasher movie on Christmas Day. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the ads and release date for Black Christmas from Dimension/MGM. The promos even make fun of “people who express outrage” as well as the plot’s body count. And the entertainment industry wonders why it continues to have a huge PR problem as promoters of garbage?Showbiz marketing calls this counter-programming. Still, I don’t understand: just how many disturbed human beings does The Weinstein Company and MGM think actually want to go see a gory movie on December 25th?”
Just do a technorati search to find more indignant goodies such as this anti-Jewish rant.
Personally, it’s hard to see what the big deal is. Who goes to the movies on Christmas anyway? Jews (and don’t think Nikki Fink didn’t know that when she wrote her last line above). What Jew couldn’t use a little Chistmas themed horror as vicarious revenge for making us listen to 10 weeks of Christmas tunes?
The Weinsteins are making Christian films now, can’t you just let them make one for the Jews?
Nonetheless, the best comment on the subject came fromTedSez on Gawker.
When Mel Gibson puts out a horribly violent film full of spurting blood and chopped-off heads and limbs at Christmastime, it’s a dramatic triumph. But when a Jewish guy does it, it makes the little baby Jesus cry. Welcome to our culture.
War on Christmas. Feh.
