They aired it on television somewhere last year on 9/11 too (Australia, maybe?), just to rub a little extra salt in the wound.
First there was the Bush snuff film, then the Tony Blair war-crimes tribunal daydream, and now this. Follow the comments after you click to see how it’s being received. As Charles Johnson is wont to say, there’s a bad kind of crazy in the British air these days.
In the distributor’s defense, there’s clearly a market for it: a poll of British Muslims last year found that 45% believed 9/11 was a Zionist/American conspiracy. I hope some right-wing media outlet over there has the good sense to try to get demographic data about who’s buying tickets after it’s released. No doubt the results would be highly “nuanced.”
Semi-related: this has the vice of being grossly unfair but the virtue of being really funny, so I’m linking it.
