While Americans watch aghast as the Obama-endorsed Arab Spring uprisings explode into violence allegedly over the contents of a movie, we have a small shadow version taking place right here over the upcoming Citizens United production "Occupy Unmasked," presented by Andrew Breitbart and directed by Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon. The kindred spirits of anti-Americanism connected with the Occupy Wall Street movement in conjunction with elements of Anonymous have waged war on some key people connected with the film, myself included.
As the September 21st theatrical release of the film gets closer, the threats issued against Brandon Darby and me have escalated. There’s been "doxing" -- the release of personal information including my home address, photos of my family and even my ex-wife -- in addition to wild, defamatory accusations including child pornography and pedophila. This information has been spread by a small group of people connected to supporters of the Occupy movement. The threats and intimidation are so bad that my family is being forced to move because we are no longer feel safe in our own community.
Although I’m currently getting hit hard right now, these sort of attacks have also happened against other people featured in "Occupy Unmasked," like Brandon Darby and Mandy Nagy aka Liberty Chick. Of course, anyone who followed Andrew Breitbart on Twitter knew that our fallen leader was a constant target of false, vile attacks from liberals.
I’ve been able to watch Stephen K. Bannon's "Occupy Unmasked" several times now with audiences across the country, and there’s a powerful section in the middle of the film that I’ve noticed invariably makes the audience break out in spontaneous applause. While discussing the connection between "hackivist" group Anonymous and the Occupy Wall Street movement, journalist Bryan Carmody gives an impassioned speech about how he was attacked, defamed online, doxed, and called a pedophile and an arsonist. He points out that people behind these attacks usually hide their identities and work in secret collusion.
People cheer when Carmody uses the exact right word to describe these fiends: cowards.
These particular cowards went to war with the film "Occupy Unmasked" just as soon as it was announced. They are roaches who run when the lights go on and then intimidate women and children. They don’t want you or anyone to see "Occupy Unmasked" in exactly the same way and exactly the same reason that the Arab Spring barbarians don’t want anyone to see the film that criticizes their idol.
Make no mistake: Occupy and the institutional left want to keep the mask on.
"Occupy Unmasked" is in select theaters this Friday.
