"BAD SANTA"

BLACKENS DISNEY'S SNOW WHITE IMAGE


"Bad Santa," a movie distributed by the Disney subsidiary Miramax,
opens November 26. Louis Giovino, the league's director of
communications, attended a screening of the movie on November 19 in
New York; Miramax acceded to the league's request for an opportunity
to preview it.

The following commentary, written by Catholic League president
William Donohue, is based on Giovino's report on the film:

"In a word association game, the mere mention of Santa to kids
begets comments like `kind,' `cheerful,' and `loving.' But the
Santa in `Bad Santa' is anything but: he is a chain-smoking,
drunken, foul-mouthed, suicidal, sexual predator. He is shown
soiling himself in Santa's chair, vomiting in alleys, having sex
with a woman bartender in a car, and performing anal sex on a huge
woman in a dressing room. And his commentary in front of kids is
replete with the `F-word.'

"This is a movie put out by Harvey and Bob Weinstein, directed by
Terry Zwigoff and produced by Joel and Ethan Coen. Michael Eisner,
Disney's chief executive, is said to be disturbed by the movie. But
we don't believe him. Miramax has produced a slew of movies that
thrash Christianity, and have blackened Disney's Snow White image.
Yet he does nothing about it. While this film is not blasphemous,
per se, it is nonetheless offensive.

"It says something about our society that some movie reviewers
welcome attacks on Christmas. For example, George M. Thomas of the
Akron Beacon Journal says, `The trailer shows this as an anti-
holiday film and it could be the much-needed antidote to that good-
will-to-man feeling that permeates the season.' Thomas does not say
why it is always a Christian holiday that deserves to be bashed, but
it is not hard to figure out why.

"The movie will be a hit with college drop-outs, toilet-humor buffs
and those who think like the Weinstein brothers."

Having been released from their European ghettos and free to focus the power of their collective "genius," the Jews are showing the world what constitutes their racial soul. Why can't they see what's happening? They don't seem able to stop themselves from bringing on their own destruction.

Actually, I just saw the movie and it hardly "attacks Christmas" or our traditions. Zwighoff is the same guy who directed "Ghost World" (and why I went to see the movie) which really says that there is something fundamentally wrong with our modern society, a "Ghost World". With so many movies out there that DO attack our people and our traditions, it's sad that some people here have to have this knee-jerk reaction to a movie just because it was so obviously funded, written, and directed by Jews.

If you bother to see the movie, the main character, NOT Santa, but a guy who says that he's a Jew and is now working this job just so that he can steal from the store after-hours, is hardly portrayed in a positive way at all. In fact, the theme is the same old "Priest and Nun" trash we are so used to seeing where traditional morality, in the end, is supported. In the end, even the Jewish "Santa" character, after a life of crime, tries to give a little goy some holiday cheer...
