Political correctness in the cinema
Just got back from seeing Oliver Stone's film 'World Trade Centre'. It wasn't too bad, but there was a sickening politically correct sequence showing scenes of shocked people silently watching the towers collapse on TVs in different countries around the world. Except that the emphasis was almost entirely on what were clearly supposed to be Arab/Muslim countries, with Mullahs especially prominent. In case people have forgotten here is how the Palestinians really mourned the 9/11 victims and plenty of Muslims in the UK showed a similar reaction. Also relevant is that a few days ago in Holland muslim youths cheered during the film when the plane hit the tower.
