Wholesome Hollywood Terrorism

from (
"Three middle school children band together, sabotage a construction site, gag a land developer and take him hostage. But their criminal conduct, aimed at saving the habitat of burrowing owls from "greedy land developers," isn't reality-based.

It's the subject of a new movie that one entertainment reviewer labels "soft core eco-terrorism" for kids.

The movie, "Hoot," opens Friday, May 5. It features environmentally conscious teenage characters vandalizing heavy machines by stealing parts off of them and flattening tires in order to hinder a development project.

The teens, who ultimately succeed in halting the project, spray paint a police car that is providing security, trespass, rip up surveyors' stakes, place alligators in portable toilets, release poisonous Cottonmouth snakes at the construction site and evade the police. The teenagers also debate stealing the construction trailer and sinking it into a nearby canal to further delay the project."

from for·mi·da·Bill:
I suppose from Hollywood's point of view, it's okay to violate other's rights, destroy property, kidnap, put other's lives in danger, etc. because of a false sense of moral superiority. No doubt these kids have an exceedingly "healthy" sense of self-esteem which gave them this imagined sense to begin with. Environmentalists, liberals, fascists, Marxists - they're all the same; they feel that their notion of moral superiority gives them the right to restrict or eradicate our rights - including our right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, free speech, free thought; you name it - If they don't like it, you can't do it. At least, that would be the case if they had it their way and believe me, they're working on it - can you say "hate-crime?"

But they’re the tolerant ones! I think I might throw up on some owls!
