I think it is arguable that the moronic, tacky, and banal culture of Hollywood has actually caused more damage to American democracy and civilization than the confusion of the last presidential election. Indeed, Islamic "experts" point to American movies as one of the agitating factors which disturbs Muslims with schizophrenic tendencies. But I don't think 9/11 is analogically the right metaphor for Hollywood's devolving liberal impact on Western civilization. If you added up all of the crimes committed by kooks who were just "imitating" what they had seen in Hollywood films,they are more in the order of the Manson Family as a neo-barbaric wrecking crew of civilization. But we don't hear Alec Baldwin criticizing his friends and peers who have damaged America more severely than W. or Jeb ever could. Borrowing their logic, when you consider how many families in the Third World could be fed with the amount of money Hollywood celebs spend funding liberal and socialist politics in this country, their destructive power and impact is staggering. Is Alec raising hysteria consciousness targeted at the right people? Or is this guy just another useful idiot for liberalism and its declining impact on Western civilization?

That is why I loved it when the Baldwin's house was bombed in the South Park movie.
