    probably NK, but apparently, they have better hackers. hard to believe, considering that the only internet connection in NK is in KJU's bedroom so that he can watch porn and order luxury goods.

    Hollywood has been responsible for attacking "commies and terrorists" far more often than not. There are literally thousands of movies depicting communists as bad guys and terrorists as evildoers. Just take a look at any of the recent Marvel movies. Iron Man, Captain America, etc are still fighting former communists, terrorists and the like. Hollywood (and all of its derivatives - including video games) have literally help mold tens of millions of young minds into thinking that communism is bad. Furthermore, if you want to argue it from an social perspective, Hollywood has literally given voices to millions of oppressed people in communist/Islamic countries through the sheer number of documentaries released by major studios every single year. This is a private company acting to defend itself and its image until further attacks aren't guaranteed as a result of its actions. It's not "Hollywood".

    Actually, judging by the emails that have been leaked, we have some ideas-a bunch of racist liberals who bow to the alter of PC in public.

    I understand why they cancelled it, but I am disappointed because it will encourage more threats of violence to stop content that someone dislikes. If we want to stand up to terrorist threats we have to be willing to risk the violence that might result. I don't think our country is ready to do that at this time. Even if we were willing to take the risk and accept some violence to keep our freedom the severity of the attacks could be escalated until we capitulate. There are no easy answers.

    I hope that the people who threatened the violence are found and punished severely.


    The situation reminds me somewhat of a porn movie I saw once with a scene where a woman asked to be spanked during a sex scene. The other performer responded that they couldn't do that because of the distributors. At the time (early 1990s) the distributors were reasonably afraid of being busted due to the recent history of prosecutions if a scene included explicit sex and any S&M content, even if was just a bit of consensual spanking. Distributors knew that even if they were not convicted they could have their business and personal lives ruined due to pre-trial asset seizures. That was an example of content being restricted by terrorism from our own government.

    That must have been awesome dialogue.

    *grunt grunt*

    "Spank me"

    "But I can't. U.S. regulations stipulate a performer cannot engage in the portrayal of violent sexual intercourse, including, but not exhausting: spanking, choking, pulling hair, slapping..."
