“The Interview” Premier at the White House?

dbcb30d0-9db2-3ac9-b1c9-ce16dd0cc039The White House should host “The Interview” premier in the White House Screening Room upon the return of the President and First Lady from their fabulously expensive Hawaiian vacation.  Announce it early say Christmas the day the film was suppose to open, that in January the White House Screening Room will have the Actors, Seth Rogen and James Franco.  Go ahead and invite the Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco.   Poor ole Joe became a brief part of the story, thanks to a verbal gaffe by President Barack Obama. In talking about the studio’s decision, Obama mentioned the movie’s stars, Seth Rogen and “James Flacco”, go ahead invite him too.   How about Amy Pascal, Scott Rudin of Sony Pictures.   Al Sharpton and Nancy Pelosi.  Along with the rest of the people responsible for Cyber Attacks on our country.  Pull in a few of the New Democratic Senators oh wait… there aren’t any.  Oh well they probably know lots of people who would enjoy sitting through this free speech expression and Sony Film “The Interview”.

President Obama says that the United States will respond to North Korea over its cyber attack on Sony Pictures. He declined to say what that response will be, saying only that it will be “proportional.” “Maybe having to watch it will send a message”.  Obama said that a number of options are being worked up by his staff and that he will choose what to do based on what he feels is “appropriate to the nature of this crime.”  Invite the Staff to the premier as well!

Many who have been criticizing Sony’s decision, the Sony executives will hire top notch disaster teams to show them feeding the poor and giving toys out in an orphanage, and soon no one will remember or care.  Obama expressed concern over how scrapping The Interview might set a bad precedent for free speech. “If somebody is going to be able to intimidate folks out of releasing a satirical movie, imagine what will happen when they see a documentary they don’t like,” Obama said.    “And imagine what will happen when producers start engaging in self-censorship so that they don’t offend the sensibilities of someone whose sensibilities probably need to be offended.”  Much like Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the film maker the Obama Administration jailed for the Benghazi attacks.  Yeah everyone should be afraid.

But hacking is serious.  We should be working at eliminating the people responsible.  At best protecting our computers from any problems.  But most of all this country is about free speech.  The right to funny or not so funny, for the sake of satire. Many soldiers gave their life for that privilege to say what we think.  Obama has promissed once again to do something.  Well, start with just watching the movie.  Loud, up front and without fear.

Not that the White House should need a reminder but please, please, please do not invite Kim Jong-Un.  He isn’t welcome here.  Nor are the communist leaders of Cuba.  Just invite Americans or people who are at least friendly to us.  You people at the White House know that right?

P.S. Mr. President:  Since we are not all about free speech and protecting the first amendment, lets pardon a man who didn’t deserve imprisonment for another bad film,  “The Innocence of Muslims.” A YouTube trailer of the film, which cast the Prophet Mohammed in an unflattering light, was highlighted by Egyptian media and did not spark protests in parts of the Muslim world, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, you put him on the map.  Time to fix that mistake as we help Democratic donors.
