Now, quite honestly, the film, in all likelihood would have lasted a short time, certainly not one I would have paid to see, but now that the North Korean menace has not only hacked our country but hijacked our courage and right to determine our own fate, it annoys me to see how easily we have become a nation of sheep.
Could someone attack theaters showing the film? Of course - we have enough home grown loons running around with military grade arsenals in their bedrooms, already doing that without any political incentive. But if we allow ourselves to be contained, deterred, fearful because Kim Jong-Un says so, we should just pack up the country, destroy the Constitution and surrender right now.
This reactionary response from Sony is cowardice. Sure, they got hacked and now we know that the head of Sony thinks Angelina Jolie is a brat, and the next Bond script was released - who really gives a care? But because they have found a way into the network of Sony should be a challenge for the giant company to hire the best American hackers and give the North Koreans a virus worse that VD and something to remember. Get Liberace playing on all their radio stations.
But to pull a film, even if it is a bad film, because someone made a threat, especially that little no one from North Korea who was lucky his own family didn't kill him at birth - had they known what would await them they may well have - should have no bearing on us.
And so I started a petition at change.orgdemanding that Sony release the film and that movie theaters across the country hold a North Korea night special and show the thing. I will even face death by ordering movie theater popcorn with that toxic topping they call butter, far more of a threat than anything North Korea can do.
Please join me in giving Kim Jong-un the American finger salute and sign the petition. Let's get this country off the couch and into the movie theater.
