Christian Bale takes Hollywood to a new low, thanking 'Satan'
By Monica Showalter

Well, here we have it: a new low from Hollywood.

Actor Christian Bale, in his Golden Globe award acceptance speech, decided to thank "Satan" in his acknowledgments, apparently for inspiring his portrayal of former vice president Dick Cheney in the movie Vice, as the Hollywood chi-chi crowd cheered.

According to a report in Variety:

    Christian Bale had one unconventional figure to thank in his acceptance speech after winning best actor in a comedy or musical for "Vice" at Sunday night's Golden Globes.

    "Thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for playing this role," he said about his character of Dick Cheney in the political satire.

I doubt God was amused. Actually, no one should have been amused.
"Because men have lost the objective basis of certainty of knowledge of the thing in which they are working, more and more I fear we are going to find them manipulating science according to their own sociological or political desires rather than standing upon concrete objectivity."

The well-worn axiom that Hollyweird only cares about making money was thoroughly disproved during the last Iraq War when HW churned out numerous anti-war flicks only to have every one of them bomb at the box office (pun intended.)
A pro-war flick that just focused on one battle like the Marines taking Fallujah would have probably been a huge box office winner. HW did not make that film.
Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper",  a  movie mostly about the Iraq War that presented American soldiers in a positive light, did boffo box office.
