More antiwar nuance: Solidarity ribbons

No, I'm not kidding on this. At the Oscars earlier this week, Hollywood A-list celebrities (I always though "A" stood for ass) were sporting something new on their lapels. For the longest time it was a red ribbon, symbolizing their solidarity with those suffering from AIDS/HIV. This year, the Holly-weirdos opted to show their support for al Qaeda:

The hot fashion accessory was apparently orange ribbons and bracelets in solidarity with terrorist suspects in Guantanamo:

Out on the red carpet, Paul Haggis (the director whose "Crash" won Best Picture in 2006) said he didn't know what accounts for all these deeply dark, brooding, troubled films. But isn't it obvious, he asked, flashing an orange ribbon on his lapel. Orange, why orange? "It's Guantanamo," his Max Azria-clad wife, Deborah, said, showing off her orange bracelet, which read: "Silence + torture = complicity." Suddenly, we noticed -- orange ribbons and bracelets everywhere.

You'd have to guess there weren't too many "24" fans in that gathering.

Give me an effin break already. These people have stood by and watched antiwar film after antiwar film come out this year, and none of them have done well. Redacted is right there with Gigli as one of the worst movies ever made and it's box office take doesn't come close to it's actual cost. But, that's okay. Ass hats like Brian DePalma and Mark Cuban deserve to fight over the pennies it made while the nation makes them the biggest laughingstocks since "the Bennifer."

But, can we blame Holly-weird? They hate Bush. They think he's Hitler. (How retarded do liberals really have to be when it comes to this? Last time we checked, Bush didn't attack any undeserving nation, or stick anyone in an oven. Yet the celebrity Left has about as much brains as a Barack Obama supporter.) And they want to stand in solidarity with their "brothers" at Gitmo. Don't suppose they'd care to learn and know that these people aren't being tortured, and that the average detainee is gaining weight.

When Holly-weird steps in it and makes a fool of themselves, they don't go halfway, do they?
