The Holocaust, Tarantino-style: Jews scalping Nazis

via Haaretz

BERLIN – For weeks, Germany’s tabloids and culture pages have been preoccupied with Quentin Tarantino’s film “Inglorious Bastards,” slated to start filming next week in Germany.

While the tabloids are drooling over the movie’s star, Brad Pitt, who is moving with his wife Angelina Jolie and their children to a villa close to Berlin (“The most beautiful couple in Wannsee,” one headline declared), the serious media is focusing on another angle: Is Germany ready for a Tarantino-style treatment of World War II?

An early draft of the script leaked onto the Internet three months ago suggested the film would contain scenes of bloody vengeance exacted by Jews against Nazis. One campaign would be carried out by Jews in the U.S. Army intent on scalping Nazi soldiers on occupied French soil; another would be a Jewish refugee’s revenge against the Nazi officer who murdered her parents.

Jolie-Pitt Baby Pics going for $14 Million

Okay leaked info says the pictures were hocked for $14 million and that most likely go to charity. Time will tell but damn this selective breeding process is definitely getting bigger by the minute. Even more amazing is that the magazines will not recoup the $14 million in sales of the issue, it is done more for the prestige and notoriety.

NEW YORK (AP) – A person involved in the negotiations for pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s newborn twins says the rights were sold for $14 million.The person asked not to be named because he was not authorized to release the figure. People magazine scored the photos in a joint deal with the London-based Hello! magazine, and the two will split the bill.

People will feature Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Leon in an issue to hit newsstands Monday, spokeswoman Nancy Valentino said Friday.

The money will go to a foundation created by Pitt and Jolie that largely focuses on helping children around the world. The $14 million is nearly double the $6 million People paid to feature Jennifer Lopez and her newborn twins on a March, according to Forbes.

Researchers Warn Against “Madonna Effect”

Researchers are warning against an alarming trend called the “Madonna effect.” “Third World” parents are putting their children up for adoption in droves with the hopes that “wealthy Westerners” will swoop down and provide their children with a more prosperous life a la Madonna’s adoption of a Zambian baby she later renamed “David.” The British psychologists at the heart of the research are warning against the widespread expoitation of the adoption process at the hands of agencies and governments who are profiting from the booming trade.

“Some celebrities have unwittingly encouraged international adoption, yet it has been shown that 96 per cent of children in orphanages across Europe and probably across the globe are not true orphans and have at least one parent, often known to the local authorities.”

Adoption from abroad is a booming trend in Europe because of the stringent rules that prohibit Europeans from adopting from within their own “borders” coupled with the celebrity endorsement of multi-ethnic adoptions made famous by Madonna and Angelina Jolie.
