The Reviews Are In: ‘Zero Dark Thirty makes me hate Muslims’

Listen to some of these chicken-hawks gesticulating about murdering Muslims and Arabs. In real life these individuals are likely sorry excuses for human beings.

The film Zero Dark Thirty is now showing in theaters nationwide and reactions are starting to appear on social networks. Here are some collected on the tumblr site dapsandhugs:

  3. @ZeroDarkThirty If you’re a woman you need to see this film. If you’re an American you need to see this film. If you’re Muslim, not so much.
  4. That awkward moment when you are sitting next to an entire Muslim family at #ZeroDarkThirty

  6. Should I be concerned that the Muslim dude in front of me in Psych class is watching a Osama Bin Laden video on his laptop?#zerodarkthirty

While the film has obviously found its supporters, backlash against it continues to grow. Yesterday, director Kathryn Bigelow defended her film from charges it promotes torture in an Op-Ed for the Los Angeles Times . Bigelow claimed artistic license writing, “those of us who work in the arts know that depiction is not endorsement.” While this is obviously true, the film goes further than depiction. As Deepa Kumar wrote the film promotes extra judicial killing and the drone warfare that has become the hallmark of the Obama administration’s “war on terror.” Not sure? Check out this tweet from the official film Twitter account:

Update: The tweet has been deleted from the Zero Dark Thirty Twitter account.
