Pamela Geller, American Thinker: Fight for Art! Music! Love!

It's why I do what I do ……………all the way.

excerpt from my latest at the Thinker

Fight for Art, Music, Love!

"Art is a selective re-creation of reality according to an
artist's metaphysical value-judgments. An artist recreates those aspects of
reality which represent his fundamental view of man's
nature."

The fundamental view of man's nature reflected in American films
of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s was noble, just, and courageous. Gone with the Wind was made was 1939. ‘39 was the apex, the
zenith, of the golden age of Hollywood. The thirties, forties, and fifties boast
a treasure trove of classic, brilliant film masterpieces, but ‘39 was unmatched.
Movie historians and cinemaphiles alike agree that 1939 was the greatest year in
film history. Consider the exceptional Dark Victory,
Ninotchka, Rules of the Game, The Wizard of Oz, The Young
Mr. Lincoln, Love Affair, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Juarez, Goodbye, Mr.
Chips, Destry Rides Again, Gunga Din, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Of Mice and
Men, Stagecoach, The Women, Wuthering Heights
, and Gone
With the Wind
— all made that year.

When America was America, films like these were made in large
quantities. Rita Hayworth, Humphrey Bogart, Cagney, Ingrid Bergman, Fred
Astaire, Gene Kelly, Cyd Charisse, Ava Gardner, Sophia Loren, Deborah Kerr, Cary
Grant, Robert Mitchum, Paul Muni, John Garfield, Hedy Lamar, Gene Tierney,
Taylor, Burton, Vivien Leigh, Laughton, James Mason, Marlene Dietrich — I
derive succor from these people the way the folks on the Left pop
meds.

This is why I do what I do. Islamic law forbids representational
art. It forbids music. With its laws
allowing polygamy and wife-beating, it forbids love. And these are the kinds of
laws they are trying to bring in to Europe and America today, right under our
noses.

And so that is why I fight: for art, music, and
love.

The Truth Must be Told
