Now Showings of "Team America" Banned

Hang on to your Team America: World Police DVDs!

The second studio domino fell yesterday when Paramount banned showings of "Team America."

Team Obama is now calling the hack attack on Sony to be a serious national security matter.  And we're now certain North Korea was behind the Sony Hack Attack.

In fact, Our Dear Leader warned their Supreme Leader that "we will respond."

In the meantime, the 1st Amendment debate is now brewing.  Hollywood assumed North Korea was a safe target to dump on--until the pix got nixed.  

Yeah, The Interview may be a schlocky movie, but denying it to audiences is caving into a dictator and a major infringement on our Constitutional rights--even the right not to go see the film.    

But--there are some, like CNN's Sharon Waxman, who think we have a "responsibility" not to upset the tender feelings of a dictator, like L'il Kim.

Other folks think that we can withdraw and let the rest of the world go to hell-and-a-handbasket.  The problem is:  We won't have the freedom to go to the multiplex and watch a movie, schlocky or otherwise, if we let the world slide into the abyss.
