Hollywood Reporter: Fringe Leftists Threaten Makers of Occupy Unmasked

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:47 am

I’m overdue linking this Hollywood Reporter article from last week about threats to Lee Stranahan and Brandon Darby:

Another documentary is drawing controversy at the Republican National Convention — the filmmakers of Occupy Unmasked, starring the late Andrew Breitbart, say they’ve received dozens of threats of physical violence in advance of Thursday’s screening of the critical look at the Occupy Wall Street movement.

Some of the messages target Brandon Darby and Lee Stranahan, two former leftists who appear in the film, according to a spokesperson for Citizens United Prods, the company behind the film.

“We’ll be legitimately raping Brandon Darby and Lee Stranahan for the next several days while they are tied up with the movie premier at the RNC,” reads an email from The email includes Darby’s and Stranahan’s cell phone numbers.

One tweet reads, “While @Shanahan is in Tampa this week, should Texas rapists be told where to find his wife since he supports the rape of everyone else?”

You know who these threats are from, of course, and it’s nothing new. It’s the same group who has been issuing similar threats to many of us for months and months. But it’s nice to have the Hollywood Reporter take note.

You may well wonder what has these people so worried. Here is the trailer:

Don’t be fooled by the “this spring” language at the end. That’s left over from a while back. It’s going to be released in three weeks, on September 25.

I have already pre-ordered my copy from Amazon. If you’re interested, you can buy it by clicking below:

P.S. Thanks for using the Amazon widget on the right sidebar. We handily covered the server costs for the site because y’all remembered to use it. We’re not talking a lot of money, but Mrs. P. is happier (and more likely to let me keep doing this) when the site is paying its own way.

  1. In addition to DVD sales, it will be appearing on the big screen before the election as well. I plan to go.

  2. Could we send out a search-party for that “r” that escaped the headline?

  3. Found. Thanks!

  4. Hopefully it will make it to Netflix by the election as well. That’s where it will be seen by non-choir folks.

  5. Of all the acts and omissions the MSM should be ashamed of, the lack of even the most cursory investigation into protests is near the top.

    Every march in the past ten years has people holding identical signs with ANSWERLA on them. Not one newscaster has even been curious enough to check on what the F that is.

    In covering Occupy, not one newscaster has ever investigated who is funding or organizing it.

    The visuals, the Romantic rush to the barricades, is just too cool to check.

  6. Somewhere in that crowd Zombie(my hero) is taking photos, and always finds those ANSWER logos and signs– which the media never fail to miss(shocker). Zombie’s photos always make it clear about the event’s who, what, where and when.

    Correction: the Patiot Act is not law, it conflicts with the
    Fourth Amendment and the Constitution is the supreme law of
    the land, not Congress or masonic judges. We live in a Con-
    stitutional Republic not an Oligarchy.

    Wakeup America! Our Treasonous government is waging war on
    the Constitution; either defend it or lose it.

    PS. Why isn’t the ACLU called the ACRU? We have civil rights, not
    civil liberties; and if they are concerned about our civil rights,
    why do they keep threatening to sue when we try to exercise our
    “right” to the free practice of religion. In reality, they are
    a bunch of Communists who have a secret agenda to create a secular


    While talking about increasing jobs with their taxcut for the rich,
    they are now in the process of passing an energy bill designed to
    export more of your jobs. I need not tell you that these actions
    constitute Treason!

    These Globalists talk about improving the environment, but say nothing
    about the pollution spewing forth from Mexico, China, and other third
    world countries.


    I would like to remind those Communist traitors in the government,
    that they have no jurisdictions over our “rights”: they come from
    God, and that any attempt to compromise them is an act-of-war
    against the United States — Treason.

    Beware America, ZOG is preparing for war against the American people.
    Organize your neighborhoods into militia units and prepare for the
    coming holocaust.

    If the war hasn’t started by November, I would suggest that you re-
    move all Freemasons and Zionists from the government.


    Have you ever wondered, why the politicians give so many speeches
    before the CFR, a Communist front organization; and the ADL, who
    are registered agents of the state of Israel? Could they be the
    people who really control our government? I thought we lived in
    a Constitutional Republic, and had freedom and Democracy in America

    Well, a little reminder to you six pack dads and soccer moms: those
    who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Prepare for
    the coming genocide of the Gentiles. The Communists intend to de-
    populate the world by 80%.


    At least they will fight and die for God. We Christians seem to
    be content to let the Luciferian New World Order run all over us.

    And as for that Bible verse, no one comes to the father except
    through the son: I believe that they will be judged by Jesus
    and ushered into heaven; while many so-called Christians will
    be told to get out his sight, that he never knew them.
