Which explains why DeNiro is a campaigner and fundraiser for Obama.

"Fark you, Obama! Here's a donation."

Farking pretzel logic from Breitbart's festering corpse.

This is just getting embarrassing for conservatives.

I hear that the made lemons sour just by his presence.

Before the Obama administration, baking powder was sweet like candy, but taste the stuff now and you have proof of how disastrous his Administration is.

He is also personally responsible for the drop in Snidely Whiplash mustaches. His clean cut appearance is obviously an attempt to bolster the Trade Unionist Baber's Federation. If only he weren't President, we'd all have beards, mustaches, and waistcoats like it was 1879...

Ha... now their argument is that government should make everything better.

PICK A GODDAMNED PHILOSOPHY AND STICK TO IT!
 
2012-04-19 12:20:48 PM
Hmmm. Could it be that the industry's preferred politician hasn't been able to restore the economy as he promised?

Sounds like prime fodder for a muckraking documentary or a fictional story ripped from the latest headlines.


Why do Godless communist filmmakers refuse to make the anti-Obama documentaries right-wing bloggers want them to make, and would make themselves except for the fact that the liberal homotainment industry refuses to give them the money to fund their projects?
 
2012-04-19 12:27:18 PM
people really need to stop betting breitbart writers that they can't spin an innocuous trend into an anti-obama screed. you're never going to win that bet.
 
2012-04-19 01:04:08 PM
so, the government doesn't fund indie film: Obama is against indie film makers, whar funding whar!?
the goverment funds indie films: Obama wasting tax payer money on hippie indie films!?

Is that the jist?

This is really going to hurt their "Hollywood in Obama's pocket" argument.

Perhaps they can borrow Romney's Etch-A-Sketch.

This is why he will forever be known as history's greatest monster.
 
2012-04-19 01:17:47 PM
I'm guessing this is indirect ranting about how terrible it is that Atlas Shrugged sucked multiple bags of dicks and it's everyone else's fault that nobody wants to fund the second one or the 85 minute monologue that will be the third one.

The line of reasoning is: OMG, look at how many independent film makers have had to resort to crowdsourcing to fund their movies! This is because the film industry is being murdered by the Obama administration and there's no real money in it. HOW SAD!
 
2012-04-19 01:35:27 PM
If Obama did support the indie film industry then conservatives will complain that he's spending tax dollars on art instead of creating jobs and then dig up the most obscure indie film of gay cowboys eating pudding and shout that "This is what Obama wants your children to see!!!"
 
2012-04-19 01:39:49 PM
is there any evidence that crowdfunding is being used out of desperation by the indie community rather than an additional source of funding? i always just assumed that it was a way for more movies to be made.

Yeah, gross hypocrisy aside, isn't that what puts the "indie" in "indie films"? That they're not funded by a major studio?

Next they'll be slamming Obama for suggesting that shoes be worn on one's feet.

Hmmm. Could it be that the industry's preferred politician hasn't been able to restore the economy as he promised?

Sounds like prime fodder for a muckraking documentary or a fictional story ripped from the latest headlines. But the folks behind the festival say we shouldn't expect any such "agitprop." This is an election year, after all, and a few dozen films calling direct attention to the ailing economy would certainly do an incumbent president little good.


i think the fark hivemind needs to put together a treatment for what an "agitprop" film about obama's sh*tty economy would look like:

scene one:
we open on a bumbling president, (casting note: he's black, but not black black, is that guy from who's line is it anyway still working?) sneeringly lecturing his oil czar about how purposefully raising gas prices will get the spiraling economy back on its feet...

As a threadjack, Atlas Shrugged is available on Netflix instant queue. I can't decide if I should add it for teh lulz or not. I really don't want to encourage anyone to make the sequels.

Mr. Biden, how many times do we have to tell you. Walking around the white house without pants is not going to get you laid. Especially the press room at 9 AM. It doesn't matter how loud you yell "whoooo" and point at your junk.

Indie Film CSB Threadjack:

Todd Solondz (Welcome to the Dollhouse, Happiness) appeared at my school this week for a Q&A, surprise premiered his new film Dark Horse. If you like Solondz, you'll like it; if you don't, you won't (and as a fan of his, I don't blame you). He was as kooky as you would expect. Talked about how to fund indie projects; somehow did not mention Obama.

/Indie Film CSB Threadjack over

Actually, Michael Bay started making feature films under Clinton, so he shares the blame.

If Joe Biden did the windmill in front of the White House Press Corps wearing nothing but black socks and a wifebeater, I'd donate 100% of every paycheck I make for the rest of my life to his election fund.

It's times like this I realize I'd make a better billionaire than all the billionaires of the world. One of them could totally buy Breitbart, Freerepublic, RedState, TownHall, HotAir etc. and just have them redirect to the CPUSA's website. The raging, bleeding butthurt from the right wing would be easily worth the money. I'd also start my own reality show involving a really nice house in La Jolla, and filled homeless people picked at random.
