Mark Cuban Will Bring Occupy Unmasked, Andrew Breitbart's Anti-Occupy Movie, to Theaters

Mavs owner Mark Cuban is making sure conservative provocateur Andrew Breitbart will continue to provoke some five months after his death. Big Hollywood, a site Breitbart founded, reported yesterday that Cuban's company, Magnet, plans to release "Occupy Unmasked" in theaters.

"This film is controversial, and that's exactly the reason we want to be sure it can find its audience prior to the November elections," Cuban said, according to the site.

"Occupy Unmasked," a Citizens United production, is a not-exactly fair and balanced look at the Occupy Wall Street movement. From the film's official website:

While the Liberal establishment and mainstream media portray the Occupy Wall Street movement as organic and nonviolent, Occupy Unmasked reveals the sinister, organized, and highly orchestrated nature of its leaders and their number one goal: Not just to change government, but to destroy it.

Led by hugely influential conservative visionary, the late Andrew Breitbart, Occupy Unmasked delves deep beneath the surface of the Occupy movement to show its dark anarchist roots. Behind the largely naïve students and legitimately concerned citizens looking for answers stand those who advocate the use of violence, black bloc operations, and intimidation as protest tactics - the same tactics they used during the anti-war protests of the 1960's, anti-nuclear weapons protests of the 80's, WTO protests of the 90's, and the IMF protests of recent years.

Cuban tells the Hollywood Reporter that the release of the film isn't about politics. He was, after all, seen hugging President Obama at a $30,000-per-plate fundraiser earlier this year.

Instead, he says he's releasing the film "for the same reason we release all of our films: We believe there is a market for it. There has never been a film that I have been involved with that was influenced by any political beliefs I have because I don't have any political beliefs."

Because who needs those when you have so much money?

IIRC, Cuban was going to distrubute Loose Change a few years ago.  I suspect this "film" might be about as factual as that one.  Genre:  fiction

Just what we need.  More agitation from right-wing extremists ending in more mass murders.

What's funny is how interchangeable the labels are in that first paragraph from the film's web site.  For example:

 

"While the Conservative establishment and mainstream media portray the Tea Party movement as organic and nonviolent, Tea Party Unmasked reveals the sinister, organized, and highly orchestrated nature of its leaders and their number one goal: Not just to change government, but to destroy it."

 

It's like you could make a series of movies using that same description, just swapping out a few labels.

So there's an audience for a right-wing conservative biased film in the US, who knew?  It's not like Michael Moore didn't find an audience for left-wing liberal biased films here.  So much Ho-Hum.

Our nation is drenched in leftist propaganda and yet has not become a full-fledged leftist Police State.  I think we can survive a little propaganda from the other side.

I wonder if there will be any analysis of agent provocateurs?  They've been found in the Minneapolis GOP convention, and have a long legacy.

 @trudat The anti-TEA Party footage runs on CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, and CBS pretty regular-like.  Gotta go to Al Jazeera English to get a little less bias against the organization.

If it will make Cuban a decent return on his investment, I'm sure he'd be glad to set up an appointment with you to discuss.

 @A-nony-mouse Oops - you got there first.  I had precisely the same idea and posted it before reading all the comments.

 @RTGolden There might be if anybody ever makes a good one. "An American Carol" grossed $7 million on a $20 million cost. "Atlas Shrugged: Part I" grossed less than $5 million on a $20 million cost (and the sequel "Atlas Shrugged, Part 2: Either-Or" will likely perform no better). The low-budget stuff (like "Michael & Me") might break even on festival play and DVD sales but they're not reaching audiences beyond the true believers.

 

Say what you will about Michael Moore (and I personally have little use for him these days) but "Bowling for Columbine" grossed $58 million on a $4 million budget. His films reach an audience beyond the hard core of his political views.

 @bot_feeder what are the liberal outlets?  Where is the death penalty being challenged in the MSM, where's the argument that higher taxes encourage GDP growth?  Where are the anti-war voices?  Your liberal media is a chimera.  The media is run by it's owners, not for and by the people. 

 

If you want to know what liberal media is, go check Pacifica networks.  You don't see Abby Goldman or Glenn Greenwald on TV.  But we see Bill Kristol, Judith Miller, Steve Forbes and a slew of "conservatives" on a regular basis

 Yeah.  Right on, brother.  It's an OccuTurd libtard police state.

By "long national nightmare" you seem to be referring to the first amendment.

 

Well, cheer up, the way things are going your leftist Police State may be closer than you think.

 @roo_ster It makes me scream hypocrisy that you and the more reactionary posters never said peep about the TIF story just above.  That's a case of gov't funds going to private firms, and those who cry "socialist" the loudest, have nothing to say about that crony, corporate socialism.

 @Albert  LOL! Nothing in that first paragraph mentions violence and anarchy. But it is so generically written you could almost swap in any group you wanted to "expose".

 @EdD. They're making an Atlas Shrugged Part 2?????   That begs the question: which partisan group is throwing away money on that project?

Pacifica is not liberal.  I listened to it now and then when I lived in LA.  It is radical leftist.  

 

The vast majority of the media is "Establishment Left", not far left.

 

Sure they throw in a token so-called conservative now and then.

 

Just like the much smaller Establishment Right (e.g. Fox News), which throws in a token Democrat onto most of its programs.

 @bot_feeder the establishment only pretends to be factionalized.  However, by your construction "radical rightist" voices get more play than radical leftist ideas.  And, it's not even close.  Neither side care about civil liberties, consistently adhering to the Constitution or limited gov't.  On those the "radical left" and libertarians are more in accord than disagreement.
