While I may tend to go off on entertainers that bash America, I would rather highlight those that support America, not just for their patriotism but for their bravery in standing up to Hollywood leftists. I’ll give kudos to Bruce Willis who’s had enough of the bashing American soldiers take from Hollywood. From Michelle Malkin:
ANGERED by negative portrayals of the conflict in Iraq, Bruce Willis, the Hollywood star, is to make a pro-war film in which American soldiers will be depicted as brave fighters for freedom and democracy.
It will be based on the exploits of the heavily decorated members of Deuce Four, the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry, which has spent the past year battling insurgents in the northern Iraqi town of Mosul.
Willis attended Deuce Fourâ€™s homecoming ball this month in Seattle, Washington, where the soldiers are on leave, along with Stephen Eads, the producer of Armageddon and The Sixth Sense.
The 50-year-old actor said that he was in talks about a film of â€œthese guys who do what they are asked to for very little money to defend and fight for what they consider to be freedomâ€.
Unlike many Hollywood stars Willis supports the war and recently offered a $1m (about Â£583,000) bounty for the capture of any of Al-Qaedaâ€™s most wanted leaders such as Osama Bin Laden, Ayman Al-Zawahiri or Abu Musab al- Zarqawi, its commander in Iraq. Willis visited the war zone with his rock and blues band, the Accelerators, in 2003.
â€œI am baffled to understand why the things I saw happening in Iraq are not being reported,â€ he told MSNBC, the American news channel.
He is expected to base the film on the writings of the independent blogger Michael Yon, a former special forces green beret who was embedded with Deuce Four and sent regular dispatches about their heroics.
Yon was at the soldiersâ€™ ball with Willis, who got to know him through his internet war reports on http://www.michaelyon.blogspot.com. â€œWhat he is doing is something the American media and maybe the world media isnâ€™t doing,â€ the actor said, â€œand thatâ€™s telling the truth about whatâ€™s happening in the war in Iraq.â€
