Bruce Willis no longer government apologist?
I've always liked Bruce Willis. Sure, he's done the big-explosion films like "Die Hard" and "Armageddon," but he's also done thoughtful, avant garde films like "12 Monkeys."
He's also known as a political conservative and amazingly may, in fact, be staying true to TRUE conservative principles, not the big government neo-conservatism espoused by the closet Stalinists at the Weekly Standard.
Anyway, saw this over at Prison Planet, saying that a neo-con blog, Hot Air, got "wind" of Alex Jones' interview on Tuesday with director Richard Linklater ("A Scanner Darkly," "School of Rock," etc.) who noted that"he had handed out DVD's on set which carried claims that 9/11 was perpetrated by the US government to erect a police state to Bruce Willis, one of the stars of Linklater's upcoming "Fast Food Nation."
"He said it put him in such a head space that he will be quiet on issues of national policy."
Linklater said Willis had told him in an e mail that the videos had changed his entire political paradigm.
"Bruce is a pretty thinking radical kind of guy," said Linklater.
Well, the neo-con's action hero appears to have come to the 9/11 Truth side, much to the disgust of Hot Air bloggers like "Allahpundit," who writes:
First, I know I speak for everyone when I say how stunned I am to find Truther retard propaganda being circulated on Hollywood sets.
What’s next? Drugs?
But I digress.
How is it, exactly, that a dude righteous enough to make a movie out of Michael Yon’s book could have his brain turn so easily to oatmeal?
Hey, Allahpundit and all you treasonous neo-cons, you and your idols have already been exposed as anti-American scum! And smart guys like Bruce Willis are coming around to the truth. Why don't you do the same, you pathetic Bushites?
