How Goes The Battle?
Well, it looks like there have been some decisive victories.
--Via, of course, Spocko's Brain
But there is still work to be done. I want to see ABC/Disney do the right thing: Applogize to Spocko and disavow the hate speech they seem to have thus far been quite happy to tolerate in their name.
It's a simple, civilized request, I think. And anyone hearing the content in context would surely agree that it's beyond the pale of reasonable discourse in a democratic nation for a "family-friendly" company to support people who express a desire to kill or mutilate people.
So why haven't they gotten around to it, I wonder? It's not as though they haven't noticed what's up.
This is part of a disturbing pattern from the friendly folks insisted on airing "The Path to 9/11", subtitled: "The Clintons Conspired Directly With Osama Bin Laden", but cancelled "The Reagans" when conservative loyalists protested at its' being less than hagiographic.
On a related note: Oliver Stone seems to be losing it. More than he had already. He's hired the (say it politely!) agenda-driven Cyrus Nowrasteh to write him a film about trying to find Osama Bin Laden. Presumably the film will be faithful to the book, which is in turn as faithful to history as was "The Path to 9/11".
