G.I. Joe..the remake! now: not American

Who needs A Real American Hero? Not Paramount or Hasbro it seems. The studio’s live-action feature film version of G.I. Joe will no longer revolve around a top-secret U.S. special forces team but rather an international operation.
What Does G.I. Joe Stand For?

So why the changes? Hasbro and Paramount execs recently spoke about the challenges of marketing a film about the U.S. military at a time when the current U.S. administration and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are at a low-point in global polls. When a studio makes a film as expensive as G.I. Joe will likely be, they want to know that as many people as possible around the world will want to see it. In other words, G.I. Joe — “A Real American Hero” — is a tough sell.

Tinseltown strikes again.

Hmmmmmmmm. Notice the colors Paramount and Hasbro…um…I believe they are Red, White, and Blue. Look again wouldya.

They kinna remind me of these colors, which is what the doll was intended for in the first place. Patriotism.

Big shots at Paramount and Hasbro can join ranks with the other apologists and self hating Americans.

What does G.I. Joe stand for:
Government Issue.
G.I. Joe, Real American Hero.

What will it now stand for:
Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity”

Kinna …sounds like an assembly line automaton of sorts, or mebbe some weed-smoking ex hippie Lefty, don’t it.

Of course they are missing the entire point of what G.I. Joe is about. It began as a toyline to support the regular American military marine22.gifman…something their children..(yes, you PC’ers..the “boys”!) could play with, and learn to respect and even love. marine.gif

Perhaps his counterpart…the nurse which was created for the “girls” to play with can be transformed into a suicide bombing Muzlim chick..would that satisfy Paramount and Hasbro?

Can hardly wait to the ahem…. remake of Patton.
What will he be?..An A-rab rock thrower or perhaps a Nazi with a cause…no wait howzabout a French general who of course wins the Global war on terror with diplomacy and shmoozing with the Izlamofacist thugs. iranani.gif

None of these cowboy Americans who actually believe in fighting the enemy…. How tacky of us.

Perhaps Paramount and Hasbro oughta inform this Marine from the 3/5 Lima company who carries his GI Joe action man figurine as he patrols the city of Fallujah huh.

Shame on them. Cowards.

Stephen Sommers is director of the shameful flick.
Shame on them!
Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce G.I. Joe along with Hasbro honcho Brian Goldner. Sommers and his partner Bob Ducsay will also produce.

Please call, or Fire off a letter or email my friends.

Keep America alive.

  4. Lawman says:

    WTF? GI Joe not American, I am not even an American and I had a GI Joe as a kid here in the UK.

    Time someone kicked some ass with them people in the ivory towers. If this carries on the whole US of A is going to be come as limp and soft as France has.

  10. Yankee Doodle says:

    Guess what movie I won’t be seeing.

  11. CopTheTruth says:

    Who cares about America, there’s money to be made! Greedy Bastards!

  12. obob says:

    you said it right, cowards. And the topper is the tragically accurate cartoon of the fallen hero who dies for thier greed and self loathing “patriotism.” Patriotism, it is a punchline that they mock our heroes with a repulsive rhetoric befitting the belly crawlers they are.

  13. Pela68 says:

    “howzabout a French general who of course wins the Global war on terror”

    HAH! That would be the first!

    (Said through never ending runny eyes)…
    Uh- And my son is talking in his sleep right now- beeing as sick as I’m…

    Got to go and take care of him!

  14. Middle America says:

    You gotta be kidding me.
    GI Joe was the coolest cartoon back then. My favorite was Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes.

    Man, I hate to hear this.

  15. Christi says:

    Oh Angel, not G.I. Joe… sigh…

  16. Gayle says:

    Sort of like what they did with Superman by having him drop “and the American way!” Sheesh! Now he fights for freedom and justice but not the American Way!

    I’m utterly sick of this crap!

  17. Bar Kochba says:

    The Left will never succeed in the death of patriotism… I hope.

  18. Donald Douglas says:

    I always loved my little G.I. Joes!

  19. Incognito says:

    Good grief!! But that’s Hollywood for you!

  20. KarLmM says:

    The slippery slope has been entered..
    What is next….stepping on my blue suede shoes.. I do think the time has arrived to use one of those blue shoes to kick a few @#!%&*s.

  21. The Hermit says:

    That’s really sad to me. We already pander to the Europeans and “world opinion” far more than is healthy. But these guys are about making money.Nothing else matters. In my work, I meet plenty of affluent people and most of them have one rule. If it makes money for me, it’s good, no matter what the consequences for anyone else.

  22. MariesTwoCents says:

    This is rediculous!

    What’s next Muslim Barbie?

    Politically Correct Ken?

  23. brooke says:

    Count on those things. :(

  24. Kevin says:

    Next they are going to make him rape children like the UN peacekeepers do. This whole idea is a travesty.
