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.

LOL! Like all conservatives, you take yourself too seriously. If you're truly as correct as you think you are, surely you can take a few lighthearted jabs.

Obviously, you can't.

Dear anonymous,
I doubt that the families of the 3,000 people who lost their lives on 9/11 would consider this a "few lighthearted jabs." No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, Nitzberg's actions are cruel and disrespectful to all those who have suffered so much as a result of terrorism.

"The Beastly Bombing" is a satire of hypocrites of every ilk, and a very entertaining one! We are all victims of worldwide terrorism even if we haven't lost relatives and this important subject needs to be examined from every possible angle. While I am chuckling at the thought of a sensitive White Supremecist and an Al Queda casanova confiding to each other in song, I am also discovering a perspective that helps me understand these people on a deeper level. Laughter and compassion is not cruel or disrespectful in this case. Thank you, Mr. Nitzberg for giving me so much food for thought as well as first rate entertainment!

This wasn't just about 9/11. In fact, 9/11 wasn't even mentioned during the show. Not once. You were probably too busy being self-riteous and uptight to notice. By the way, this is the ONLY negative review I've seen of this wonderful musical. Including reviews from Jewish and Catholic newsletters.

Laughter has magical healing properties. It allows us to deal with tragedy without being paralyzed by it, and it humanizes us. You should try it sometime. You might be less uptight.

Incidentally, I lost someone during 9/11. She had a sense of humor. I know she would prefer we didn't live in anger and fear, and would rather her life wasn't remembered in terms of 9/11. I respect her memory. If you're not one of us, don't tell us how to feel or how to react, or when to be offended. You have no idea.

I think it's fitting that all of the Beastly Bombing's defenders post here anonymously. If they are so proud of such "satire" why don't they use their real names on here? Are they afraid that they might be accused of treason?

I'm looking forward to seeing this show tomorrow.. from what i know of it, you're way off base. Neither 9/11 nor iraq is mentioned in the songs I've heard.

And by the way, Tokyo Rose was an american prisoner of war who was FORCED to read the broadcasts. In five years of Japanese captivity she refused all efforts to make her give up her US citizenship. The US troops who freed her bore her no ill will, and she was tried back in the states only after some yellow journalists made a scapegoat necessary. She was eventually pardoned, and was even honored by WWII veterans groups before she died.

I'm no wishy-washy liberal, but I don't need some blinder-wearing conservative telling me who is or isn't a good american.
