Netflix Joins Left's Sarah Palin Hashtag Twitter Game with 'Moon Nazis'
Breitbart.com ^ | 5/1/13 | John Nolte

Posted on 05/01/2013 10:19:28 AM PDT by So Cal Rocket

Twitchy reports that on Tuesday night, the left launched a Twitter game with the hashtag #SarahPalinFilms. Via a verified account, this was Netflix's voluntary contribution: -- #SarahPalinFilms "Iron Sky" nflx.it/11AZvLR twitter.com/netflix/status…

— Netflix US (@netflix) May 1, 2013 -- One review of "Iron Sky" describes the film this way:

The film tries to make the connection between the Nazis and the current state of American politics via a US President character that embodies the Sarah Palin brand of politics, but it’s done in bad taste and this is where the satire fails.

Net flix is great and gives a chance to watch what we want and to filter all the homo crap they have on TV.
Also the most rated movies and programs are all conservative while the radical left crap have no stars or just one star.
It goes to show what people really want and it’s not crap like this game

I just read the review on NetFlix, and it does not mention Gov Palin.

Net flix was wrong to do this.

The democrats are basically describing themselves because they are the socialist party like the Nazis.

I actually had the misfortune of watching Iron Sky on Netflix (thanks to my teenage boys). While it was a satire, it was full of the standard Hollywood leftist propaganda push. It had a Tina Fey type actress portraying Palin as the president. I couldn’t help but think that the only reason this dreck got funded and green lighted was because it was ridiculing Palin. If so, the filmmakers understand how Hollywood really works as far as what gets made into a film.

I tried watching it, and was even more disgusted with the racist portrayal of the token black astronaut. I gave up about the time they came to Earth and encountered the gang.

It's not a Hollywood production. It's mostly Finnish, with some German and Australian money.

I'm guessing that this was a direct-to-streaming-video production, as I can't see how anyone would've approved the cost of even a bargain-basement DVD distribution.

It did contain an interesting echo of "The Watermelon Man", though. Nearly as subtle as last week's Mad Men episode, which featured a segue into "Planet of the Apes" footage during the midst of the Harlem riots that followed MLK's death.

I’ve watched the film. Its an over the top satire. The female president is doing an impression of Tina Fey doing an impression of Palin.

It had its moments but the film fell short. The funniest joke is when the NK ambassador tries to claim the invasion force is North Korean and everyone laughs at him.

I entered into the free 30 days thing with them right before they came out and quit advertising on radio stations that carried Rush. The reason was for the Sandra Fluke kerfuffle.

I got my free 29 days and canceled on the 30th. Naturally, I got a followup asking why and I told them. Last I heard from them until recently and I just automatically send them to the junk box.

Folks, remember one thing. They always overreach.

Personal anecdote:

Remember the the whole freakout that Palin was “doing a black guy” in college? Remember how they made such an issue of it and then POOF!!! it was gone without a trace a few days later?

Know why? I’ll tell you.

I have a black son in law, I asked him what he thought about it. To make a long story short, all his black friends thought it humanized her and took a lot of the ‘racist’ crap off the table because of the way she handled it. They didn’t care whether she had or not.

Moral of the story...let them play their kiddie games. It does not work any more and is just a preach to the choir.

Good for you. We don't have Netflix. We have a wonderful home movie library. We have spent most of our lives without cable. We just got cable when we moved to Florida. If it were up to me, it would be gone though my better half wants to keep it for certain shows that he likes and warnings for the weather. I just cannot watch the majority of the current shows and movies now.

The shame of it is that Nazis on the Moon! is a great "high-concept" premise for a shlock-y B-movie action flick or just a sci-fi satire.

But they totally wasted it.

Give it five years or so, and someone else needs to do this reich... er, um, Right!

Not just the muslims, but the left, which is basically *all* the Norwegian parties. All clones of Obama, all islamist/Stalinists.

Oh yes. They’d donate billions for her murder, if they could.

There’s a discussion forum on IMDB, where you can generally see who is leading the cheers.

That saddens me greatly. Why is Sarah so hated when all she wants to do is good for people!? Pure Irrational Hate!

I haven't gotten on the IMDB Message Boards in Years, sounds like I haven't missed anything.

The Leftist in Norway really HATE Sarah that much?

I just can't wrap my head around that :(

Nope. US distribution (such as it was) was handled by a Canadian company, Entertainment One.

What's interesting about Iron Sky is that the filmmakers made a trailer, basically as a home movie, doing all the effects themselves. Then they sent the trailer around to festivals and things like comic book conventions, building an internet buzz that they were able to leverage into raising the money to finish the film.

I just “chatted” with a drone at Netflix. He said they were “not affiliated” with the company that produced the game.

I told him the quote that WAS was in print and sent him the link. He then told me it was false information and I should pay it no attention. (This of course, was after I told him I would not renew my membership, which has been cancelled for several months, and that I was going to tell my friends and relatives to cancel theirs.)

I told him I considered him uninformed, and closed the conversation. I’m waiting for a copy of the chat to arrive in my email.

It also disappeared because it was a load of garbage, even the mainstream media knew it, and anyone with a brain could see through the smear. The whole way it came from the psycho Palin-hating Trig Truther crowd who started peddling it, oh-so-coincidentally, after a YouTube video of one of Palin’s in-studio sports broadcasts where she mentioned a recent local tournament appearance by Glen Rice. And then, that loathsome cretin McGuinness, anxious to spread each and every ludicrous smear against Palin, phones Rice up and asks only three, very carefully calculted, very crafted questions, deliberately designed to ‘imply’ something happened between the two.

But you’re right, most people probably wouldn’t care even if it were true. Still bugs me, though, the sheer unethical scumbaggery of McGuinness.

Sounds to me like Netflix merely put that tag onto the film because the review mentioned Sarah Palin.

Netflix also has great conservative films streaming: “I Want Your Money”, and “The Undefeated”.

May be. But I just cancelled streaming from them anyway, citing this incident. Meant to cancel before now. Bound to be something better I can do than watch old movies...again.

Only have over-the-air TV now. No cable TV/satellite or even Netflix after today's cancellation takes effect. Love my local weather lady. Smart, looks clean, and can talk informatively without stumbling for a half-hour straight during severe weather. Locally, TV newsfolk here are decent about keeping their political leanings to themselves, with a few exceptions as always.

Actually, my ‘kids’ are probably about your age.

Their kids range in age from 3 to 15.

I’m just saying that what comes in through movies is subtle but dangerous brain rot. If the kids accept it as reality, they won’t be of much use to their own kids when the time comes.

The life you have lived probably will not be available to them, and they’re going to have a bunch of thinking to do.

You’re right I don’t want my life for my kids.

As for my kids watching a movie and thinking it’s real, then you do not know my kids LOL.

They’ve lived in different countries, seen different countries, doing all A’s , doing well in their sports and not fat or boring, or miserable

My kids are around your age

Real people’s lives don’t revolve around foolish fiction.

Everyone's life is full of fiction. Stories are how we relate to the world. Even 'true' stories such as historical bibliographer edited to the point of fiction. Fiction is how we teach things and how we learn about the world. Story telling is as old as the human race. We learn to read with fiction. We learn math with fiction (story problems). Even Jesus taught with fiction (parables). Even science uses fiction by formulating made up stories (theories) and then testing them against evidence (experimentation). Anyone that tries to live without any form of fiction is going to lead a pretty crappy life.

>> “ Even Jesus taught with fiction...” <<

.
You have a comprehension barrier.

“Jesus” never used fiction of any kind. His parables were all quite true; just that the names were witheld. (he knows the hearts of all)

You completely misunderstood my comment. Those whose lives revolve around drama and fiction will die without ever embracing reality. “Arrested development” is the polite clinical term.

Good news for me and maybe any other FReeper who would like to cancel Netflix streaming today. I cancelled online but the effective date was to be nearly 4 weeks from now. I chatted online and Donna issued a prorated refund to my credit card, see? And Donna said we’re still friends!

Credit where credit is due

Dear Resetttozero,

On Wednesday, May 1, 2013, we credited $8.47 to your charge card ending in $$$$. Your reference number is boolaboola. Keep in mind, it takes some banks up to five business days to make an account credit.

If you have questions, we are always happy to help. You can call us anytime at 1-888-357-1516.

–Your friends at Netflix

If you equate ‘has a netflix account’ with ‘life revolves around drama and fiction’ then I would say you are living in a fantasy world of your own. And I say that as someone who stopped watching TV completely over a decade ago. Get a grip.

Oh I remember now- I tried to watch it and must not have liked it because I switched it off.

I did notice the Palin President character, eh... I am sure our beloved Sarah will not care.

I thought it was a good portrayal of what happens then the Nazi’s take over! - the opposite of their intended effect.

In the movie the Palin character is the bad guy against... bad guys? (the nazi’s) Irony is lost on libtards.
