“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.”

The terrorists have defeated us, it would appear

It's come to this.....

Either the Norks, or a hacker group on behalf of the Norks, hacked Sony pictures this week in response to the comedy film with James Franco and Seth Rogan where the assassination of Kim Jong-Un is attempted. The hackers released confidential and embarrassing e-mails of Sony executives with promises of more to come. The group then sent a threatening e-mail. Here is the e-mail in its entirety:


We will clearly show it to you at the very time and places “The Interview” be shown, including the premiere, how bitter fate those who seek fun in terror should be doomed to.
Soon all the world will see what an awful movie Sony Pictures Entertainment has made.
The world will be full of fear.
Remember the 11th of September 2001.
We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time.
(If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.)
Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
All the world will denounce the SONY.

More to come…

If the world "denounces the SONY", it'll be for the awfulness of Playstation 4, not because they made a stupid movie. 

Anyway, if Americans refuse to go to a movie because of idle terrorist threats, then the terrorists have already won. The theater where I normally go is a Carmike, but they announced they're pulling the movie. I'll have to find a showtime elsewhere I guess.
