There is a movie coming that will be directed by Steve Bannon (The guy who directed the Sarah Palin movie The Undefeated,), written by Rebecca Mansour, produced by Citizens United, and starring Duck Dynasty's Phil Roberston.

Courtesy of Alternet:

Right-wing moviemaking has been a growth industry in recent years, as conservative activists set out to challenge what they see as the damaging cultural impact of liberalism’s dominance in Hollywood. The latest example is “Torchbearer,” which director Steve Bannon called “a Christian war film” in remarks before a screening in Cleveland during the Republican National Convention last month. 

“Torchbearer” stars Phil Robertson, the Duck Dynasty patriarch who became a folk hero in the right-wing war on “political correctness” when the show was temporarily suspended by A&E amid controversy over Robertson's inflammatory remarks about homosexuality and black people in the pre-civil-rights-movement Louisiana. The movie was shown to distributors in Cannes and will be released in theaters in August.

The hour-long film is a collaboration between well-known right-wing groups. Bannon is executive chairman of Breitbart News; the script was written by a Breitbart editor, Rebecca Mansour. It was produced by Citizens United, the organization whose movie attacking Hillary Clinton was used by conservatives on the Supreme Court to gut regulation of political money in Citizens United the court ruling. Religious Right political operative Ralph Reed attended the premiere, and at a reception following the screening, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., took the opportunity to slam Clinton and praise the work of Citizens United.

The film is only an hour long but it manages to blame Nazi Germany on Nietzsche, mock the teaching of Evolution, use graphic images from Auschwitz and ISIS atrocities to shock and enrage, and of course blame all of the ills of the world on the "worship" of science instead of God.

My first instinct was that surely this must be something from the Onion or some other parody site, but nope it's real.

There is the trailer up above, a website, and everything.

My only surprise is that Sarah Palin does not have a speaking role, nor has she endorsed or spoken of the film on Facebook.

You would think with so many of her former collaborators working on the film, that she would be pitching it to the few simple minded morons who still value her opinion.

Perhaps this is so unhinged that even SHE gave it a pass?

Nah, who are we kidding, she probably was never even told about the film.

    Congratulations Bekki on finally getting a movie made with one of your scripts and your lifelong ambition fulfilled.

    At this rate Hollywood will come calling in 2042. Stay strong.

      Not at 60 min.

      It doesn't qualify as a movie except, possibly, in the Documentary category.

      It's too short for a movie and too long for a short.

      Probably geared toward TV (as in dropped by A&E) and will be a straight to video deal.

      It might be "released" to theaters, but there is no guarantee any theater is going to pick it up and show it. Summer is big bucks season for theaters and they're not going to tie up one screen with this one hour money pit.

    Phil Robertson is diving back into the culture wars. And Lord, is he angry.

    The ‘Duck Dynasty’ reality-TV patriarch’s next in-your-face project is ‘Torchbearer,’ a film being screened next week for distributors at the Cannes film festival.

    It’s a fire and brimstone look at the decline of Europe and the United States from the viewpoint of an evangelical crusader. And the news from Robertson’s perspective is not good.

    Robertson says the Roman Empire’s bloody debauchery, Robespierre’s French Terror, the Nazi genocide, the Khmer Rouge, Boko Haram, the ISIS terror army, and America’s embrace of abortion – yes, he goes there – are the predictable results of cutting God out of entire societies.

      There are film markets that are scheduled in affiliation with major festivals where producers try to sell their shows to distributors. Most of the films at market are NOT in the festival itself.

      Becky's film is destined to go directly to the $3.99 DVD bin in the center aisle of Walmarts in the bible belt.

      When it fails to sell (or as Sarah would say "fells to sail") the inventory will end up in dumpsters from Georgia to West TexASS.

    Pamela Geller's association with the trailer Innocence of Muslim video in 2012.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Innocence of Muslims[1][2] is the title attributed to a controversial anti-Islamic movie "trailer" that was written and produced by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.[3][4] Two versions of the 14-minute video were uploaded to YouTube in July 2012, under the titles The Real Life of Muhammad and Muhammad Movie Trailer.[5] Videos dubbed in Arabic were uploaded during early September 2012.[6] Anti-Islamic content had been added in post-production by dubbing, without the actors' knowledge.[7]

    What was perceived as denigrating of the Islamic prophet Muhammad caused demonstrations and violent protests against the video to break out on September 11 in Egypt and spread to other Arab and Muslim nations and to some western countries. The protests have led to hundreds of injuries and over 50 deaths.[8][9][10][11] Fatwas calling for the harm of the video's participants have been issued and a Pakistani minister has offered a bounty for the killing of Nakoula, the producer.[12][13][14][15] The film has sparked debates about freedom of speech and Internet censorship.[16]

    We have a transfer site up here in Fairbanks, and perusing the many treasures put there is a fun hobby. Once, I found a book from a local christian school. The United States history was totally rewritten in that book. It also referred to the Native Americans as savages, and that we should be glad that the whites came and civilized us. Huh? Mama say whaaaat? Anyways, these movies tailored to the so called Christians is the same thing. They can tell a story that they want, and their people can stay in the bubble. I myself, like to stay in the real world. I don't believe anything on tv and or in movies. I have learned to be very discerning. Including not getting mad at Bradley Cooper when he shows up at the DNC and not the RNC. And I know Clint Eastwood is not Josey Wales, just a stink old butt man with some talent for making movies despite the fact that he tries to indoctrinate those that need indoctrination. There are the sheep and the shepard, right? And Christians need that bubbled spin for their sanity. I see it. It's ok. I watch Avatar and Star Trek all the time to soothe my weary soul.

      That would start the clock over again and it wouldn't seem to have been for sale for almost a year.

      A movie called "Clinton Cash" (or some such shit) premiered a few days ago. A c4per claims she tried to purchase tickets online, but they were sold out. Yet, when she got to the theater, tickets were available and the theater was almost empty. The theater owner was deceptively claiming"sold out" to keep people from viewing the anti-Clinton movie! Much like bookstores hiding copies of Palin's last book, to purposefully inhibit sales. Delusion and deception go hand in hand at the pond!
