The First Lady is presenting awards for movies and offending idiots

The American Idol and his wife understand what placed Barry in office to begin with and continue doing the only thing they are really good for. In the process they offended Iran

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013...ars-dress-iran



Iran's semi-official Fars news agency Photoshopped pictures of Michelle Obama at the Oscars to conform to Iranian restrictions on images of the female body in the media.

Fars, which is affiliated to the Islamic republic's elite Revolutionary Guards, redesigned the US first lady's dress so that it covered her chest and shoulders in a picture showing her announcing that Argo had won best picture, via a video link from the White House.

Rules dictate that Iranian women shown on Iran's state television should have a hijab that covers their hair, arms and legs. The length of the censor's ruler varies for foreigners. A foreign woman travelling inside the Islamic republic should comply with the same restriction on Iranian women, but those shown on TV, such as dignitaries or actors, are tolerated without the hijab, up to a point.

Men enjoy relatively more freedom, but only sportsmen are allowed to be shown with bare legs on TV.

When Iranian media are obliged to use a picture that contravenes these rules, it is not unusual for Photoshop to come to their rescue. Many foreign dignitaries and celebrities have fallen victim to the Islamic republic's censorship regime, including the EU's foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton.

When showing foreign films, state TV censors can go as far as editing the film frame by frame in order to cover up actors or delete them from a scene.

Fars was also infuriated by the Academy's decision to honour Argo, which it described as an "anti-Iranian" film produced by the "Zionist" company Warner Bros – an objection echoed by many other state agencies.

A large number of Iranians – even those not necessarily sympathetic to Ahmadinejad's regime – have taken to social networking websites to show discontent with Argo's win, which they believe stereotypes Iranians in a negative way without drawing a distinction between ordinary citizens and the revolutionaries behind the US hostage crisis.

In January, officials in Tehran said they were intending to retaliate to Argo by making their own film about the hostage crisis, to be called The General Staff, which is promised to be an "appropriate response" to Ben Affleck's "ahistorical" thriller.

Last year, Asghar Farhadi's film A Separation became the first Iranian film to win an Oscar – for best foreign language film – prompting national celebrations.

I stopped reading at leftist equals liar. Anyone who is serious about history does not deny a source because of political bickerings. Whats next, a book burning of people who disagree with you? Grow up, study the source for yourself and come to your own conclusions, not what some political affiliation wants you believe.

Soviet apologists are Marxists and they thrive on lies. I doubt you would have agreed even if I didn't say that.

Yet you started off by telling me I needed a history lesson. You can take your Soviet apologist author on Lincoln and shove it. Pot calling the kettle black here.

I have come to my own conclusions. Pot calling the kettle black here again. One can't be in a past incident and has to rely on second hand information. I already had my fill of pro-Lincoln side of the story. I gradually changed my mind from reading other material particularly after wondering if the shooting of draft protestors was really true when seeing the Gangs of NY. The facts bear it out.

A First Lady is not co-president you know. Even if they have their own issues like literacy or drugs to speak on.

Not only that but the movie thread on Lincoln has been thoroughly hijacked into a discussion about the southerners instead of what Lincoln actually did. That's progressive.

Lincoln like Reagan have been reinvented. Also only in DC could a movie been taken for historical fact. I have not watched the movie so I cannot speak to its authenticity~

Well, Lincoln's legacy--he ended slavery--is actually true.
Reagan's legacy--the tax-cutting, small-govt conservative--is actually false.

Personally I couldn't care less, but I'm sure it was a narcassitic love fest. Hollywood: "OMG, the first lady is here...we must be so wonderful and important for her to grace us with her presence". Michelle: "OMG, a standing ovation from all of these wonderful, talented people...I must be wonderful for them to adore me so" . . . or something like that.

I usually don't watch it, but I saw most of the movies that were nominated this year. So I was curious. Plus we made a night of it with popcorn and all that. I really wanted Jennifer Lawrence to win or Naomi Watts who was also ncredible. I really wanted Hugh Jackman to get Best Actor though. I think it takes more skill to sing a musical live when it's not normally done that way. I loved Les Miserables.

And I like to look at the gowns. I did like Michelle Obama's gown.

There is no doubt that he was not a supporter of slavery. However he is far from the champion he is claimed to be. If he would have had his way blacks would have been shipped off to somewhere else. He clearly viewed them as a beneath white people. Thomas Paine was a much finer champion IMO~
