[su_right_ad]”Patriots” stood up for freedom of speech my making sure no evil dictator will tell them what mediocre movie they are allowed or not allowed to watch. To prove how much they love America, they sang Lee Greenwood’s “God Bless the USA at a screening of “The Interview”.

Similar moments of pre-movie singing were reported in an Atlanta theater as well. This is the incredible, irony-free lede from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s story: “The movie, and the singing, served as a statement from many theatergoers that a foreign power would not dictate what forms of entertainment Americans could or could not enjoy.”

The Sony flick grossed about $1 million across 300 participating theaters, mostly independent cinemas like the Drafthouse; the major movie chains (AMC, Regal) boycott screening the film in protest of Sony making The Interview available on demand on Christmas Eve. Variety reports 17 Alamo Drafthouse locations sold out of all their showings of the film yesterday.Insert shortcode

    Patriotism reduced to jingoism by “Americans”: who are too lazy to vote, and prefer to listen to the lies of politicians who are taking away their “freedoms” while they sing.

    AmeriKans my azz!

    not a damn one of ’em was open carrying locked and loaded!

    Sony really needs to do their research before trying to form a band of USA patriots.

    This was about as stupid as when Sara came down south making fun of the way Suthen people speaks by using Eastern Carolina flatland words when addressing the hill folks back up yonder twix the hollers of eastern Tennessee. That dawg don’t hunt. Never have and never will.

    People from that part of Texas is weird anyhow. Ask anybody west of the Pecos.
