“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Liam Neeson's "Non-Stop" might as well be called "Political Correctness on a Plane"

Has anybody seen Liam Neeson's latest movie "Non-Stop"? If you haven't but you plan to at some point and you don't want me to spoil the movie for you, then stop reading now.

Otherwise, get a load of this. I just read a synopsis of this movie by somebody who saw it. Anyway, Liam Neeson is a washed up air marshal on whose plane a killer is operating. And it has all the elements we expect in a Liam Neeson action thriller.....brooding angst and Neeson kicking ass. But there's more.

Turns out, the killer is a 9/11 family member who's disgruntled because the US hasn't done enough in his estimation to stop the next 9/11 and he wants to make a point by framing an air marshal for murders in the sky. Worse still, his fellow high-jacker is a member of the US military who is happy to murder innocent civilians for money. Worse still, the only peaceful, reasonable, beyond suspicious, guileless person on the flight is a Muslim in full garb and beard.


If this is true, then I'm terribly disappointed because I usually like Liam Neeson roles. But then when I saw Julianne Moore was in it, I suspected something was up. It seems that if a movie denigrates Americans and canonizes our enemies, she's usually in it.

I do not watch anything with Liam in it. I think he is a terrible actor.

You didn't even like Taken?

Muslims are our enemies? All of them? That is news to me.

Wouldn't it be more accurate to say that WE (irrationally) are the enemy of all Muslims?

I've seen "Taken". I'm not a fan.

Give it a rest Isaac. Nobody said ALL Muslims are our enemy, but you have to see the intent when the bad guys are 9/11 survivors and US military and the sole good guy in the movie is a Muslim. Of all the religious groups, ethnicities, or whatever, they chose a Muslim to be opposite the evil white 9/11 guy? Come on, even you have to see that was intentionally provocative.
