RUSH: I’ll tell you, folks, the hack at Sony pictures is producing all kinds of juicy inside stuff about what executives at Sony actually think of their actors and what they think of Obama. Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho.
There are two people involved. One is Scott Rudin. Scott Rudin is a producer. He made the movie No Country for Old Men. He made the movie Moneyball. I think he wanted to make Jobs, the movie Jobs. Amy Pascal is one of the co-CEO types at Sony, and e-mails from these two people back and forth have leaked. In these e-mails they just mock and make fun of Obama along racial lines in ways that nobody would ever suspect because these are the same people that are giving Obama money. They’re hosting breakfast fundraisers for Obama.
But here in the Washington Post: “Hollywood Has a Race Problem. Just Read Sony Exec’s E-mails About President Obama — First reported by BuzzFeed, the exchange between Sony executive Amy Pascal and producer Scott Rudin involves Obama’s presumed taste in movies: Rudin, a top film producer responsible for movies such as No Country for Old Men and Moneyball, said –” What happened, Amy Pascal said she had to go to some breakfast that Jeffrey Katzenberg was putting on, a fundraising breakfast for Obama. She didn’t want to go. It was obvious in the e-mail she didn’t want to go. So she sent an e-mail to this buddy of hers, Scott Rudin, what should she say to Obama if she met him, and Rudin replied, “Ask him if he’d like to finance some movies.”
Amy Pascal replied, “I doubt it. Should I ask him if he liked Django?”
Rudin responded: “12 Years.”
Pascal quickly went down the path of guessing preferred movies that Obama would like based on whether or not they starred African-Americans. “Hey, you think Obama would like The Butler? Hey, you think Obama would like Think Like a Man?” And Rudin responded, “Ride Along. I bet he likes Kevin Hart.”
So the first black president must like movies about black people and butlers and movies that star black people because he’s black. Now, here you have high level Hollywood executives, yep, racist jokes about the president of the United States, nobody would ever think this would be going on, right? ‘Cause these are good people. These are sensitive people. These are good liberals. They’re the ones that eagle-eye racism and bigotry everywhere else, but they are innocent and clean and pure as the wind-driven snow, and here they are making fun of and mocking Obama’s imaginable taste in movies and lamenting to each other they’d rather not have to go to this Katzenberg breakfast fundraiser and so forth.
There’s a whole lot more. Some of the things that these people are saying about Angelina Jolie. She’s an ego freak. All she does is make movies that lose money, and if we do this latest movie she wants to make it’d be the end of your career and mine, Rudin and Pascal e-mailing back and forth. There’s all kinds of things. It’s your worst nightmare. In this case, these people’s worst nightmare come to life because all of their supposed private e-mails have now been leaked because of this hack and the Drive-By Media’s all over the story.
Truth Revolt, that’s Ben Shapiro’s piece. The Washington Post, Variety, Hollywood Reporter, they’ve all got stories on Hollywood liberals mocking Obama on race.
