now if we can just start treating other religions like we do scientology we will be in business.

 

BERLIN, Germany (Reuters) -- Germany has barred the makers of a movie about a plot to kill Adolf Hitler from filming at German military sites because its star Tom Cruise is a Scientologist, the Defense Ministry said on Monday.

 

Cruise, also one of the film's producers, is a member of the Church of Scientology which the German government does not recognize as a church. Berlin says it masquerades as a religion to make money, a charge Scientology leaders reject.

 

The decision drew a sharp response from Cruise's film producing partner, Paula Wagner, chief executive of United Artists Entertainment, who said Cruise's "personal beliefs have absolutely no bearing on the movie's plot, themes or content."

 

The U.S. actor will portray Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg, leader of the unsuccessful attempt to assassinate the Nazi dictator in July 1944 with a bomb hidden in a briefcase.

Defense Ministry spokesman Harald Kammerbauer said the film makers "will not be allowed to film at German military sites if Count Stauffenberg is played by Tom Cruise, who has publicly professed to being a member of the Scientology cult."

 

"In general, the Bundeswehr (German military) has a special interest in the serious and authentic portrayal of the events of July 20, 1944 and Stauffenberg's person," Kammerbauer said.

 

Stauffenberg had been deeply opposed to the Nazis' treatment of the Jews and planted a briefcase bomb under a table near Hitler in his "Wolf's Lair" headquarters on July 20, 1944. The bomb went off but only wounded the Fuehrer.

 

The film, slated for a 2008 release, will be directed by Bryan Singer and co-star Kenneth Branagh. It is called "Valkyrie" after Operation Valkyrie, the plot's codename.

In a statement, Wagner said von Stauffenberg is characterized as a "heroic and principled figure."

 

"We believe it (the film) will go a long way toward reminding the world that even within the ranks of the German military, there was real resistance to the Nazi regime," she said.

The main site of interest would be the "Bendlerblock" memorial inside the Defense Ministry complex in Berlin, where Stauffenberg and his co-conspirators hatched the plot and where he and his closest comrades were executed when it failed.

 

Kammerbauer said the ministry had not yet received official filming requests from the producers of "Valkyrie."

 

While Wagner did not cite requests for specific locations, she did add: "We believe Germany is the only place we can truly do the story justice."

I still think Germany is being completely shitheaded about this, no different than Venezuela, but I do like the fact that it sends a message to producers that Tom Cruise is a project liability, and that his batshit craziness and stupid beliefs can override his star power.

Ban a TV station cause it was critical of the government.

 

It's easy to side along with the Germans on this one cause Scientology is such a huge mountain of bullshit, but it's still basically a "We're not gonna let you do your thing because we don't like what you say/believe in". Double standards like that don't fly with me regardless of what side I'm on.

Venezuela didn't banned a TV for being critical,its permit to go on air expired and due to serious reasons it was decided not to renew the permit,but instead was replaced with TEVES a channel open for public use with educational,informative,healthy content.

 

 

RCTV was famous for its lies,something similar to Fox news,but it also included novelas,gossip shows,and programs of USA DC backed yellow journalists,who conditioned and shaped minds for ages.

 

RCTV was suspended in many occasions,has a history of lying,without mentioning passing pornography at daylight times which caused one of the many temporary suspensions of the channel,also lying on April 11 2002,the coup d'etat that they supported and lied about the events.

 

RCTV was a wealth worship,greed,American dream praising,anti revolutionary,racist,obscene,corrupt channel due to its funders which decided what was suppost to come out and how to come out,to their economic benefit only.

 

of course,to control the people you have to show them the reality you want them to believe,and RCTV was one of the tools of the mind shapers.

 

 

 

1- take notice that the media from the USA demonizes chavez and the venezuelan people who want a change.(that means something is wrong with their statements)

 

2- research about venezuela and the bolivarian revolution,outside of the US media.see where they aim and who they blame.
