Matthew Modine: Can’t We Just Hug It Out, Osama Bin Laden?

Home - by - March 31, 2010 - 08:33 America/New_York - 45 Comments

Matthew Modine wants to just hang and have a nice rap session with — Osama Bin Laden. No, really:

Via Story Balloon (money quote is about 2 minutes in):

Imagine if somebody were to really sit down with Osama Bin Ladin and say, “Listen man, what is it that you’re so angry at me about that you’re willing to have people strap bombs to themselves, or get inside of airplanes and fly them into buildings?” That would be the miracle if we can get, sit down and talk to our enemies and have a fine way for them to hear us.

Um. I’m actually speechless. He really thinks someone can just hug it out with him. I’m only surprised he didn’t add “I can haz cookie now?”

Newsbusters reminds us that this isn’t the first time Matthew Modine has uttered absolute tripe:

“I mean, he got shot down three times!” said Modine, taking on one of McCain’s most lauded personal accomplishments. “That’s not success!” While on a bombing mission over North Vietnam, McCain was shot down and held as a prisoner of war. When McCain’s father was named commander of U.S. forces in Vietnam, the future Arizona Senator was offered an early release, but rejected it because his captors would not also released his fellow American P.O.W.s.

That kind of loyalty has earned McCain endless accolades, but Modine thinks that McCain’s rejection of the release offer is yet another example of McCain’s shortcomings. “And he wasn’t even a good prisoner of war,” said Modine. “He should have left as soon as he could. That’s what you’re supposed to do as a prisoner of war: Leave when you can. It defeats the enemy. It makes them look bad and it weakens them.”

It is also personal this time. This latest asinine spewing of what can only loosely be called thought — and an offense to the English language — only served to remind me that Modine is still alive. And super old. Which means that I am too. For that, he must pay.

Further proof that the movie “Clueless” should have been made about Hollywood.

    Mr. Modine, if we can locate the filthy cave where Osama is hiding, can we drop you off and you can sit down and work it out with him? What a bonehead.

    I’ve said for some time now that leftists are all like “grizzly man”, the idiot who thought that he would be “cool” with Alaskan brown bears, so the bears wouldn’t eat him. He was wrong. Liberals actually think they can have rational conversations with brainwashed fanatics who would cheerfully cut their heads off with a dull sword and think they were righteous for doing so.

    Also of “Full Metal Jacket” fame, R. Lee Ermey’s character would like to present the counterpoint …

    So you little piece of camel shit! you’d like to give Osama a nice big fuckin hug? Did your Daddy molest the wrong goat or did your momma forget to wipe when he was done planting you up her ass! You make me puke you disgusting puddle of droppings from a San Fransico bath house! I’ll bet your daddy scraped you off the fumunda Osama keeps chowing on in that cave he shares with your little sister! I’ll bet she just chews on that big ol beard he’s got on that desert smelly burka covered crotch of his! I’ll bet it’s got a lotta sand in it and she ain’t got no teeth left even though she’s only twelve! I’ll bet you get down on all fours five times a fukin day and stick your ass up at some moon god so he can tell that sand lizard were him and his buddies should stick their little stingers in her! Now get down and give the platoon a ride on your hummer!

    I can’t repeat what George C. Scott’s Character in “Patton” might say.

    Sweet Mark. Nope, never met him. But there are plenty just like him. They wouldn’t know a genius if one was standing in front of them, because these people ONLY like to hear their own voice. In other words,he’s never met a genius because no one is smarter than he.

    Personally, I think the General said it best several years ago:

    Norman Schwartkopf, when asked “how do you fight an enemy that is not afraid to die, an enemy who in fact welcomes death?”

    He replied “You accommodate them.”

    O.K., group hug now.

    Ya… Stanley Kubrick was a genius.
    Kubrick was a strange kid who took up photography while living in the Bronx. He was a rotten student in high school and flunked out of ccny. He made a pauper’s wage between photography gigs by playing chess for quarters.
    Where does the genius part come in?
    Certainly he can’t mean “movie making” can he?
    Is Modine THAT stupid?

    ‘Liberals’ are just as brainwashed fanatical as IslamoFascists. They all live in some demented fantasy land that precludes any interference from reality. Did you catch S. Penn on TV the other day? I think he’s been kicked in the head by a mule or something – he sounded seriously retarded – not just what he said but the way he said it.

    General Norman Schwartzkopf was asked during an interview…if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harbored and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America.

    His answer was classic Schwartzkopf.

    “I believe that forgiving them is God’s function. OUR job is to arrange the meeting.”

    We better start bottling some of this stuff and keeping it for posterity, cause the leaders who think like this, are quickly going away from us.
    I wish someone would interview him now.

    It’s not so far-fetched or out of the liberal mainline, what this idiot proclaims.

    Here’s a (more or less) word-for-word recitation of a conversation, or argument rather with a liberal in my neighborhood re the justification for Hiroshima, etc. When I advised the silly twit of Japanese fanaticism, of the continuous declaration for national suicide when America would invade Japan, of the termination of the battle for Okinawa, she replied: “Well we should have talked with them. Told them we understand.”

    The liberal mind-set for the last 40-50 years in our country seems to be an affinity for self-destruction. So I wish they would get on with it–the fewer of them the safer we shall be.

That’s what you’re supposed to do as a prisoner of war: Leave when you can. It defeats the enemy. It makes them look bad and it weakens them.”

    Hmmmmm, he obviously didn’t research his role in Full Metal Jacket, never spoke to anyone in the military about the “Code of Conduct”, specifically Rule III: “…I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy.”
