Consider whatever standard the PC police force the moderator's hand right here in this forum. Then, open the link from this post and watch the trailer of this new movie. Holy CamelShit on a totalitarian cracker! What the hell were they thinking to make a movie like that?

Sony Hackers Apparently Demand Studio Pull ‘The Interview’
A group calling itself GOP posted a message online on Monday that warned Sony to stop “immediately showing the movie of terrorism which can break the regional peace and cause the war.”
GOP — which stands for Guardians of Peace — did not specifically identify the movie. Authorities have been investigating whether the hacker attack is in some way be connected to “The Interview,” the movie that has generated condemnation from the government of North Korea.
The message from GOP said that they “have given our clear demand to the management team of Sony, however they have refused.”
“You, SONY, & FBI, cannot find us.”
The note also included a link connected to the names of Amy Pascal and Stephen Mosko.
A spokeswoman for Sony said they had no comment. An individual close to the studio said that they have received no demands.
The message also claims to “know nothing about the threatening email received by Sony staffers,” an apparent reference to a message received on Friday that authorities also are investigating.
The Wall Street Journal first reported the note.
The North Korean government has denied involvement in the hacker attack. But it has issued threats about the movie, a comedy in which Seth Rogen and James Franco play entertainment journalists who get recruited by the CIA to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jung Un.
Last week, Social Security numbers from tens of thousands of employees were leaked online, along with other information including the salaries of Rogen and Franco.

"We have already given our clear demand to the management team of SONY, however, they have refused to accept," the message reads. "Do carry out our demand if you want to escape us. And, Stop immediately showing the movie of terrorism which can break the regional peace and cause the War!"
Presumably, it relates to the Hollywood studio's upcoming release of "The Interview," a comedy about a plot to kill North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.
CNNMoney cannot verify the authenticity of the message.
The note boasts the FBI won't be able to find them, because, "We are perfect as much."
Notably, it says hackers claim no responsibility for an email threat sent to Sony employees last week, warning that "your family will be in danger."
So far, they've taken credit for breaking into Sony Pictures and destroying information on employee computers.
There's increasing evidence that North Korea is behind a massive hack that stole Sony Pictures movie scripts, entire films, internal memos and personal information on movie stars and studio employees.
A week ago, Sony executives called this "a terrorist attack." The company declined to
