Beautiful movie poster for Taxi to the Dark Side, banned by the MPAA because it features a U.S. Army detainee in a hood. Which is something that actually happened and happens.
What a world. If any of you out there still think that the RIAA and the MPAA and all those front-and-center “entertainment” regulators aren’t blatantly censorious, you’re fooling yourselves.
I could propose a 28th Amendment to the Constitution, but why not bird two birds with one set of binocs?
The detestability of the NRA leads me to take liberties (while we can) with the Second Amendment:
It has an ugly, accurate ring to it, doesn’t it?
Seriously, in times like these, when even the current denizens Executive Branch even even stoop to selling a Police Action“War” with such rarities of truth, the fucking Motion Picture Association of America bans a poster (read: advertisement) because it shows an American G.I. in a hood, something “inappropriate for all audiences”. (from monoscope.com).
The MPAA’s official statement:
We treat all films the same. Ads will be seen by all audiences, including children. If the advertising is not suitable for all audiences it will not be approved by the advertising administration.
Thank God (of Biscuits) that the MPAA doesn’t get to review the national news before it goes out. We have FOXNEWS for that sort of thing.
