9/11 is a Joke??!!?
So, against my better judgement, I let my friend drag me to this musical about the 9/11 terrorist attacks called "The Beastly Bombing." The play, which is like a Gilbert and Sullivan opera, turns the horrific events of 9/11 into a comedy, complete with singing and dancing Islamic terrorists, Nazi skinhead thugs, a buffoonish President and his drug-addled daughters, a pedophile priest, bumbling cops and a flaming homosexual Jesus. In short, exactly the kind of thing Hollywood liberals find funny.
The show was appropriately held at the Center for Inquiry, some kind of meeting place for the atheist crowd. This appaling "satire" attempts to get laughs with songs like "I Hate Jews" and "A Delightful Bomb." You get the idea. Basically it turns the tragedy of 9/11 into a big joke and claims moral equivalence between Islamist terrorists and conservative Jews and Christians. Since all these groups are religious, the play wants us to think they're all equally capable of committing acts of violent terrorism.
Also, when the play's terrorists blow up the Brooklyn Bridge, the fictional president chooses a country at random to bomb in retaliation. This reflects the liberal talking point that Bush randomly chose to bomb Iraq after 9/11, even though there is plenty of evidence of Hussein's connection to terror. Worst of all, the President (obviously Bush) is supposed to be a sexual deviant who brandishes a leather whip, and has a gay love affair with Jesus. You can't imagine how insufferable it was to sit among these smug liberals and atheists, laughing as their own President was being mocked. Laughing at cutesy, defanged portrayals of Islamofascist terrorists, who in the real world, ruthlessly kill in the name of Allah.
The writer and director of this farce is named Julien Nitzberg. A self-hating Hollywood Jew of the most predictable kind, Mr. Nitzberg is the Tokyo Rose of the War on Terror. I hope his play is a bomb.
