ok, NOW that makes sense. I watched clips of it and was confused why some lines were dubbed and others weren't.

I am Jack's total lack of surprise. It's a Christian production company - why would anyone be surprised that a Christian enterprise of any kind would be liars and cheats?


"It was going to be a film based on how things were 2,000 years ago," Garcia said. "It wasn't based on anything to do with religion, it was just on how things were run in Egypt. There wasn't anything about Muhammed or Muslims or anything."

In the script and during the shooting, nothing indicated the controversial nature of the final product, now called Muslim Innocence. Muhammed wasn't even called Muhammed; he was "Master George," Garcia said.


"Master George." Just like in ancient Egypt.

You gotta be kidding me.

Kittypie070: Apology NOT accepted.


Why not? Did you click through to the gawker article? They're actors and tech folks. They did a production of a low-budget movie called Desert Warriors - this is a film person's normal bread & butter. The Christian production company decided to change things up in post and make the film into something else by dubbing over the lines to their message of hate. Why is that the fault of the actor whose work was farked with after the fact?

"You'll get over it."

In this case, Hitch's pronouncement that "Actors are cattle" is very accurate: they only did what they
were paid to do. They had no control over what was done with the finished product.

So cut them some slack.

I feel sorry for them.
What the filmmaker/company did is gross. The actors and crew had nothing to do with it and hopefully no harm comes their way.

I hope the assholes responsible are disappeared. To Gitmo.

Given the utter lack of evidence about the guy who actually made it - other articles have shown what we do "know" about him are grossly contradictory and clearly made up - it's not out of the question that the people who produced the film are driving the riots.

Marcus Aurelius: Has the producer been outed yet? Because he's the asshole responsible.


I have a theory, based on nothing but circumstantial evidence, that someone took an existing film and
redubbed it without the knowledge of the original producers, though the fact that the person purported
to be the producer doesn't seem to exist lends more credence to the theory that it was intended as a
provocation/slur from the beginning.

Who that someone would be? Somehow I can't help but think Terry Jones had a hand in it, since he was
quite vocal in his promotion of it.

He doesnt exist literally. He was identified by name and supposedly an isreali living in California. Both California and Israel say they have no record of him and have no idea who he is.

I don't care what you believe in as long as you STFU about it.
Keep your spooks and voo doo at home and don't bring it to the streets.
First sign you are not worth keeping alive is when you start swining your hocus pocus around in public.
Both sides need to STFU until someone in power says exactly this.

Farking assholes with their farking asshole beliefs.
Don't eat this, don't touch that. It's liek having a screwy mother telling the whole family what to do.
this planet needs a farking intergalatic intervention.

I am a supporter of the 1st amendment. But this whole film seems criminal to me. It is the equivelant of yelling fire in a crowded theater. It's obvious there was never any intention to create something with artistic value. This film was created with the sole purpose of inflaming the muslim world. The end result is an international incident that has caused the deaths of 4 people so far.

Sometimes I think the real answer would be every man woman and child making anti-islamic videos at home and uploading everything at once. Flood the earth with it. Mass mockery on a scale never seen in history. You want croissants, we got croissants right here punks.

Its scary to think thats all the 8th century goat herder contingent needs to start shooting. Someone called their deity a name.

The Wikipedia article on this "movie" is interesting. Apparently, one of the executives in the production (who claims he's not "Sam Bacile") was arrested and imprisoned for fraud a few years ago.

Nice reputation.

A movie no one had heard of, actors who were duped, a hidden producer, and the Muslim world knew about it before the West?  It is almost like the movie was made not for Christian audiences but to get Muslims riled up.  
 
And coordinated attacks on consulates?  
 
This story could be a super spy novel... Or just weird coincidence.
 
False flag operation. Or assholes with a bad movie choice and overreaction by Muslims with too much sand in their vaginas.
 
Ad what I saw of the movie reminded me of Monty Python or SNL crossed with Left Behind quality production.

That sucks... It's bad enough these folks had to take jobs in low-budget shiat like this to make a living, but to then find out the film was used as a catalyst for the deaths of several Americans?

No wonder the asshole that made this shiat is in hiding. I imagine there's quite a few folks who'd like to see him strung up by balls from the nearest lamp post.
