Rightbloggers Celebrate the Unprecedented Success of Sarah Palin's (10-Theater) Movie Opening

tomt200.jpgThe Republican 2012 Presidential race, which has given us so much pleasure, remains in flux. Mitt Romney holds a lead, but is unacceptable to "the base" because he once tried to help uninsured sick people; thus, various fringe candidates compete ferociously (and that is the right word) for the right to represent the most hardcore GOP voters in the fray (e.g., "[Herman] Cain: Americans should be able to ban mosques").

Help them, Sarah Palin, you're their only hope! Like Eva Peron, the former Alaska governor has played coy with the conservative base, which only inflames rightbloggers' ardor to put her on the ticket.

Which may explain why, when Palin opened a documentary film about herself last week in a few theaters to small crowds, rightbloggers treated it as if it were an earth-shaking triumph, and the resuscitation of their Palinoid fantasies.

We have not seen the Palin documentary, which is called The Undefeated. Though rightbloggers usually don't let this stop them from reviewing films, we were raised better, and so refrain from offering artistic judgement. (We will note that the film received a rating of zero percent at Rotten Tomatoes.)

As to the film's box-office performance, its opening was modest. Or massive, depending on from whom you heard about it.

"The Undefeated Apparently Had A Better Gross Revenue Per Theater Average Than Nearly Every Other Movie Sans Harry Potter," said Conservatives4Palin. They provided a list supporting this conclusion. It began: "The Undefeated: $2870. Transformers: $1608."

Which is true: According to Conservatives4Palin's source, for Friday alone, Transformers: Dark of the Moon did indeed take in about $1608 per screen.

But the Transformers film, in its third weekend, accomplished this on 3,917 screens. The Undefeated opened on ten screens. No, that's not a typo: ten (10) screens. The Palin doc's Friday gross was thus $28,700, while that of Transformers was about $6.3 million.

How's this for a tagline, boss: "Make it a hit, America, or be lost!"
So what does this portend for The Undefeated? Let's see what happened with another heavily-politicized film event, the debut of the film version of Atlas Shrugged in April.

That film opened in 299 theaters, receipts for which, we were told at the time, promised an epochal hit and an Ayn Rand revival. But in its second weekend, Atlas Shrugged expanded to 465 screens -- and took in about half as much money as it had in its opening weekend. Shortly thereafter, its producer abandoned his plan to bring the film to 1,000 screens.

Now, it's not written in stone that The Undefeated will follow Atlas Shrugged's dismal trajectory. But neither does its tiny opening suggest a world-beater. Still, rightbloggers treated it like the debut of a Star Wars film.

"Strong Opening for 'The Undefeated,'" said Texans for Sarah Palin (and the film's press release). "'The Undefeated': Out of the gate strong," said the Daily Caller's Matt Lewis. "'The Undefeated' Roars to Big Opening Day... Theaters Sell Out From Atlanta to Orange County," said Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit.

"Big Demand For The Undefeated Drives Broader Release," said Dan Riehl -- but then, just about any release would be broader than the film's opening. (Riehl was working from the film's publicity materials, which constituted most of his post and included a claim of "standing ovations at most screenings.")

"Palin Film Opens Strong, Theaters Packed," cried the Fox Nation Blog. The actual article showed less to brag about: "'The Undefeated'... has already sold out a show in Grapevine, Texas (population 46,000), according to the distributor Cinedigm. Grapevine isn't exactly a teeming metropolis but the film is set to roll out across Tea Party country in 10 AMC theaters."

That doesn't sound like... well, like much of anything. But Fox Nation went on: "Understandably, filmmaker Stephen Bannon was all smiles." Well, you would expect a director on a film promo junket to smile, come what may.

If anyone didn't see it the same way, rightbloggers declared, it was only because they were determined to destroy Sarah Palin. Never mind that such MSM outlets as Reuters ("Palin film starts soft, but distributor pleased") and The Hollywood Reporter ("Sarah Palin Documentary 'The Undefeated' Claims Victory in its Box Office Debut") had given the opening as gentle a spin as its makers could want; all discouraging words were anti-Palin Lame Stream Media etc.

"Hi, two for Harry Potter.""Sorry, but it's sold out.""Okay then, two for something else, let's see, how about 'Undefeated'."Then they go see Harry Potter.  Repeat 1.5 times + the Atlantic writer, and there's your 6 tickets.

Racial profiling makes PERFECT SENSE, anyone who denies it is simply a naive pollyanna living in fantasyland, or some kind of evil anti-white asshole like Roy Edroso.

 Let's take an in-depth look at the "progressive" fantasyland of Seattle, Washington.  Why, the white liberals there even voted to rename King County after "Martin Luther King Jr.", that's how much they want to show you that they just LUV black people!  They have such amazing hagiographic murals of Saint Mike (ooops) in the King County Courthouse, while just outside, black crack thugs smoke & sell crack in plain view of the "policemen" inside of the glass doors! 

 Granted, Seattle is ONLY 8% black in total... but anyways.....

tinyurl*com/no5knkExtrapolated from the article “List of 2008 homicides inSeattle” from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.Read the in-depth articles linked there and YOU WILL FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF THAT THIS IS ALL TRUE!!!selected from the list of the 28 Seattle homicides in 2008…. 

Allen Joplin, Jan. 4 — black killed by blackDe’Che Morrison, Jan. 10 — black killed by blackMaurice “Moe” Allen Jr., Jan. 26 — black killed by blackDegene Barecha, Jan. 30 — black killed by blackPerry Henderson, Feb. 6 — black killed by blackStephan Dwaine Stewart, April 2 — black killed by blackEldora Earlycutt, July 4 — black killed by blackJames Paroline, July 10 — white killed by blackTroy Peters, July 22 — black killed by blackPierre Lapoint, Aug. 5 — black killed by blackJane Kariuki, Oct. 16 — woman of undisclosed race killed byblack man 

Quincy S. Coleman, Oct. 31 — black killed by blackEdward McMichael, the “Tuba Man”, Nov. 3 — white killed bymultiple blacksNathaniel Lee Thomas, Nov. 23 — black killed by blackSeattle is 8% black. Black males (about 4% of Seattle) were thekillers in at least 14 of the 28 homicides in the Seattle area in2008. At least five of the other killers were latinos.Now let’s take a look at 2009!tinyurl*com/2aa88vdThe link above is to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s article on homicides inSeattle in 2009.At least twelve of the 21 homicides in Seattle in 2009 werecommitted by black males, only about 4% of Seattle.Black males were the killers in at least 7 of the 17 homicides in2010. Look it up you so-called "journalist". "It’s in the P-I", as they say! Of the 27 officers that were shot and killed by criminals in thelast 20 years in King and Pierce county, 21 of them were shot byblack men, even though black men make up less than 3% of thepopulation. Therefore, if the police ARE NOT “racially profiling” blackmales in Seattle, then the police are being negligent of their duty.REMEMBER THAT SEATTLE IS SUPPOSEDLY SOME KIND OF SUPER LIBERAL "PROGRESSIVE" PARADISE!!!!!

But... but... naive reality-ignoring and science-ignoring "progressive" faith-based religious libtards like Edroso always say that "race is just a social construct".  Ha ha!!!! Public release date: 17-Jul-2011Genetic research confirms that non-Africans are part NeanderthalContact: William Raillant-Clarkw.raillant-clark at umontreal*ca514-343-7593University of Montreal Genetic research confirms that non-Africans are part NeanderthalSomeof the human X chromosome originates from Neanderthals and is found exclusively in people outside Africa, according to an international teamof researchers led by Damian Labuda of the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Montreal and the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center. The research was published in the July issue of Molecular Biology and Evolution. "This confirms recent findings suggesting that the two populations interbred," says Dr. Labuda. His team places the timing of such intimatecontacts and/or family ties early on, probably at the crossroads of theMiddle East. Neanderthals, whose ancestors left Africa about 400,000 to 800,000 years ago, evolved in what is now mainly France, Spain, Germany and Russia, and are thought to have lived until about 30,000 years ago. Meanwhile, early modern humans left Africa about 80,000 to 50,000 years ago. The question on everyone's mind has always been whether the physically stronger Neanderthals, who possessed the gene for language and may have played the flute, were a separate species or could have interbred with modern humans. The answer is yes, the two lived in close association."In addition, because our methods were totally independent of Neanderthal material, we can also conclude that previous results were not influenced by contaminating artifacts," adds Dr. Labuda.Dr. Labuda and his team almost a decade ago had identified a piece of DNA (called a haplotype) in the human X chromosome that seemed different and whose origins they questioned. When the Neanderthal genomewas sequenced in 2010, they quickly compared 6000 chromosomes from all parts of the world to the Neanderthal haplotype. The Neanderthal sequence was present in peoples across all continents, except for sub-Saharan Africa, and including Australia. "There is little doubt that this haplotype is present because of mating with our ancestors and Neanderthals. This is a very nice result, and further analysis may help determine more details," says Dr. Nick Patterson, of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University, a majorresearcher in human ancestry who was not involved in this study."Dr. Labuda and his colleagues were the first to identify a genetic variation in non-Africans that was likely to have come from an archaic population. This was done entirely without the Neanderthal genome sequence, but in light of the Neanderthal sequence, it is now clear thatthey were absolutely right!" adds Dr. David Reich, a Harvard Medical School geneticist, one of the principal researchers in the Neanderthal genome project.So, speculates Dr. Labuda, did these exchanges contribute to our success across the world? "Variability is very important for long-term survival of a species," says Dr. Labuda. "Every addition to the genome can be enriching." An interesting match, indeed.About the study: "An X-linked haplotype of the Neandertal origin is present amongall non-African populations" was published in the July 2011 issue of Molecular Biology and Evolution. ...The study was supported by grants from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.   www*eurekalert*org/pub_releases/2011-07/uom-grc071411*php

Isn't Canada so much groovier and "progressive" than the USA?    Well then why do blacks, only 8% of Toronto, commit over 90% of the murders there?

cnews*canoe*ca/CNEWS/Crime/2010/11/26/16324096.html   25 of 28 Toronto gun victims black males   By CHRIS DOUCETTE,   November 26, 2010     TORONTO - Those who wield the guns in Toronto and the victims whose lives they've snuffed out both seem to be getting younger all the time.   And anyone who has been paying attention to the city's latest wave of deadly shootings, which have left four dead and at least six wounded, will no doubt notice another obvious factor.  "The fact is, is that it's young black males who are dying," Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo, a crime victim advocate, said Thursday.   She knows there will be people within her community who will be angered by what she has to say.  But she's hoping that anger will motivate people to get involved in helping to stop the bloodshed.   "Until we find a way to get our youth engaged, they're just going to keep shooting each other," Omololu-Olunloyo said bluntly.    So far this year, there have been 28 gun murders in Toronto.   Shockingly, 25 of the victims are black males.   And just as troubling is the fact that 10 of the 28 victims were still teens.   The youngest victims were Sealand White, who was gunned down in a double murder in Regent Park last month, and Devonte Gonde-Prosper, who was fatally shot in May. Both boys were only 15.   It's also worth noting that only five of this year's gun killings have led to charges, Omololu-Olunloyo said.   There have been 12 arrests in those cases, all black males, many just teenage boys, she pointed out.    Part of the problem, Omololu-Olunloyo said, is that there are so-called role models within the black community telling kids not to snitch.

A fifth passenger who police say spontaneously joined in the attack has been arrested."Everyone on the train was egging them on," said Fordell, 29, of the early-morning attack on the 4 train.He said he was returning home at 5 a.m. from an East Village nightclub where he sells his hand-designed leather accessories when his Gothic getup drew unwelcome attention.After Fordell transferred to a crowded 4 train at 42nd St., four young, black men began harassing him, cops said.      "People started saying stupid little comments - cracker this, white boy this, f----t this," Fordell said. "I told them the only reason they were saying this is there was four of them and one of me."  "I'm a small, little white kid with long hair," he added. "They got guys three times my size threatening me."As the train continued into the Bronx, the confrontation became physical, he said."I was in a headlock, punched and kicked on the floor," Fordell said.Then a passenger decided to join in - declaring, "Oh, I get a few shots, too," before kicking and punching Fordell in the head, according to cops.When Fordell finally left the train at his Fordham Road stop, his original attackers snatched his bag and ran. Inside was $2,900 worth of merchandise, cops said.Fordell chased the men to the token booth downstairs, where two of them pummeled him while the others escaped with the bag.By the time cops responded, all four men had fled. But Fordell pointed out the straphanger who had joined in the beating, cops said.Police arrested Barminthe Ramoutar, 54, of Bushwick, Brooklyn, and charged him with felony gang assault and robbery. Ramoutar has no prior arrests, cops said.Fordell was treated at Montefiore Medical Center and released Sunday afternoon."I had a whole lot of bleeding from my skull," he said. "My eye is swollen five different colors. There was blood in my urine. I have a footprint on my back and on the back of my neck."   www*nydailynews*com/news/ny_crime/2011/07/18/2011-07-18_subway_gang_attack_victim_says_he_was_pummeled_because_hes_white__cops_not_sure_*html

TORONTO:  JULY 18, 2011.  Toronto is ONLY 8% white, but according to the Toronto Police Department, blacks commit at least 90% of all murders in Toronto.  The comments at the article are excellent, many white Canadians are waking up to the undeniable reality of the negro plague.2 Teeniggers fire shots in public libraryShots fired, people flee library in northwest TorontoBY ROB LAMBERTI,TORONTO SUNFIRST POSTED: MONDAY, JULY 18, 2011 6:38:06 EDT PMTORONTO - People scrambled for their lives after hearing a volley of gunfire on Tobermory Dr. on Monday afternoon.Dozens of people ran for cover when between two and four shots were fired in the 2:48 p.m. gunplay near a library in the Jane St. and Finch Ave. scene, Toronto Police said.No injuries were reported and responding officers closed off the library after being told someone resembling a gunman ran inside.That person was found but later released unconditionally.Police cleared the library and then closed it as a precaution.Two young men, aged 18 and 19, were arrested without incident a short time later, but the firearm hasn’t been recovered, police said.Investigators said a gunman on foot apparently opened fire on a motorist driving a Honda Civic, but investigators believe the motorist may have also been armed and was returning gunfire.Forensic officers were collecting evidence from the scene to determine if more than one firearm was used in the shooting and video surveillance from area buildings.The person in the Civic has not been tracked down, police said.In a separate incident on Jane St. near Shoreham Dr., a man suffered serious stab wounds when he was attacked by two men around 3 p.m.The 21-year-old victim was rushed to Sunnybrook hospital where he underwent emergency treatment. Police said the injuries are serious but he is expected to pull through.Two men were arrested without incident a short time later near St. Augustine church.  www*torontosun*com/2011/07/18/shots-fired-people-flee-library-in-northwest-toronto

According to the 2006 census, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada is about 71.8% White.CURRENT NEWS from July 18, 2011.Somali families flee Edmonton after men slain  By Mariam Ibrahim, Postmedia NewsJuly 18, 2011EDMONTON — Tired of losing a growing number of young men to homicide, some families in Edmonton's Somali community have optedto pack their bags and are migrating to the Toronto area.Forthe fourth time this year, Edmonton's Somali-Canadian community buried ahomicide victim, after 25-year-old Ahmed Ismail-Sheikh died after an altercation early Friday morning in the city's Inglewood neighbourhood. The victim had travelled to Edmonton two years ago to find work, and hadno immediate family in the city expect for a brother and cousin. The victim's mother and father flew to Edmonton from Toronto over the weekend for their son's funeral."Every month we're back here for a funeral," said Mohamed Abdirahman, who didn't know Ismail-Sheikh, but like many others, attended the funeral because he wasa member of the city's Somali-Canadian community. "It's like a killing field. It's a lot of funerals."Abdirahman said many families in the community have begun to move to the Toronto area becausethey are worried for the safety of their teenage children."Everymonth there are people going back to Toronto. People came here with their kids to find a better life, and this happens. People ask themselves, 'What if the next time it's my kids?' " he said. "Something has to be done. Someone out there knows something."...Edmonton's chief of police, Rod Knecht, and Mayor Stephen Mandel met last week to discuss Edmonton's high homicide rate for the year and spent some time focusing on the city's Somali community."We talked about ways in which we might try to get in front of the problem, but the issue was there doesn't seem to be any trend. But maybe in the Somali community there might be more trends than (in) others," Mandel said.He said to address the disproportionately high number of homicides within the Somali community,city police need to define in a clear way the specific issues the community is facing."The reality is we're always concernedwhen any community is represented in four homicides and want to find out what's going on in that community that is creating a more violent atmosphere," he said, adding he asked police for background information on the three previous homicides.The mayor hinted at forthcoming initiatives, but didn't elaborate on what those might look like."Wethink we are going to be putting into place some interesting things outof our office in co-operation with the (police) chief's office. This isvery disconcerting for all of us to see this happen in one particular community. We need to take some proactive steps but we need to get a bitmore background information on what's happened."Ismail-Sheikh's death was the city's 29th homicide of 2011.The Edmonton Journal www*vancouversun*com/news/Somali+families+flee+Edmonton+after+slain/5121855/story*html

Ancient history from 2008Houston, TexasStudy: Houston leads in homicides by black youthsBy ALLAN TURNER, Houston ChronicleDecember 28, 2008As violent crime nationally slows in growth or declines, the United States is facing a dramatic — but hardly noticed — increase in murders by and of young African-American men, a Northeastern University study released today reports.Between 2002 and 2007, the number of black male juveniles murdered nationally increased by 31 percent and the number of black perpetrators by 43 percent. The increases were even greater, the report said, when guns were used as weapons.Focusing on the period between 2000-01 and 2006-07, the study found Houston at the top of a list of 28 U.S. cities, with a 139 percent increase in the number of young African-Americans suspected in killings.In 2006-07, 129 young black men were murdered in the city, up from 42 in 2000-01.Those increases came as homicides by and of young white men slowed ordeclined. In Houston, the number of white offenders dropped by 10 percent. Nationally, FBI statistics showed murder decreased 1.3 percent in 2007 from the previous year."I don't want to suggest that this is an epidemic, a crisis situation," said study co-author James Fox, professor of criminal justice and law, policy and society at the university in Boston. "But it's absolutely a growing concern, not a one-year blip."    www*chron*com/disp/story.mpl/metropolitan/6184853*html

It's a pretty good scheme they figured out, isn't it? If the movie had been a hit, it would have proved that Palin is the Voice of Real Americans, once and for all. Now that the movie has bombed, its proves that... Palin is the Voice of Real Americans, once and for all.

They would have saved money by not releasing it at all, and then declaring it the biggest success of all time.

A minor point but possibly useful: Grapevine, TX is about 46,000 people. It is also a rather affluent bedroom community for both Dallas and Ft. Worth, being located near D/FW airport. So it isn't a small town out in our hinterlands. So a sold out show there means a lot less than a sold out show in a town in West Texas or East Texas. I don't know the exact theater but most theaters in North Texas (as throughout the country now) are the typical 50 zillion screen stadium type and I am sure that of those 50 zillion screens, most of them were showing 'HP' or 'Transformers' to faceless suburban teen agers.

The Norwegian police on Saturday charged a man theyidentified as a right-wing fundamentalist Christian in connection witha bombing in central Oslo and a shooting attack on a nearby island thatkilled at least 92 people.As stunned Norwegians grappled withthe deadliest attack in the country since World War II and a shockingcase of homegrown terrorism, a portrait began to emerge of the suspect,Anders Behring Breivik, 32. He was described as a gun-loving, highlyreligious Norwegian obsessed with what he saw as the threat ofmulticulturalism and Muslim immigration to the cultural and patrioticvalues of his country. …Mr. Breivik had been known as polite andconscientious man by former colleagues. But his writings on aright-wing website, Document.no, revealed another side, an abidingobsession with Marxists, Muslims and Norway’s multicultural ideals.Thoughhe does not call for violence in the postings, he denounces thedemographic change that he says has undermined Christian communities inplaces like Kosovo and Lebanon. Mr. Breivik writes: “Can you name ONEcountry where multiculturalism is successful where Islam is involved?The only historical example is the society without a welfare state withonly non-Muslim minorities (U.S.).”So, I have to ask - Anders and Racist: Separated at Birth?

So, how much meth does it take to be so cut and paste happy? I know that the Internet makes this easy, but seriously... switch to model glue or paint.

So, yeah... Africans are the most pure specimens of Homo sapiens, while everyone else, including European descended white folks like you, are part-caveman half-breeds...

Something tells me this isn't the point you were trying to make.

"O'Connor countered Friedersdorf's story by, first, pretending not to know the spelling of Friedersdorf's name..."

Ferchrissake.  He even steals the threadbare "Ya know, ol-whathisname..." passive-aggressive shtick that Palin employs when she's in queen-bitch mode.  I wonder if O'Connor totters around the house in heels at night sporting a Bumpit! hair extension screaming "You betcha!!" at his many frightened and confused cats.

Also, not a good sign when your documentary's title is a lie to anyone who knows the definition of the word "undefeated" and is capable of reading election results.

I respectfully decline your invitation, as this is something that I would not like to do. Feel free to indulge though. Can't be any worse than your crippling meth addiction.

Were there facts up there? All I made out were dense blocks of type - I have learned through long experience that, when someone comments with long blocks of type, they rarely know what they are talking about. So, I freely ignored it. That goes especially for people who freely acknowledge that they are racists.

But I am alarmed at the amount of meth that would be needed to be that messed up. How many rocks does it take you to get that crazed, Shitface?
