Paul haggis sports terrorist ribbon at Oscars

But don’t question their patriotism…

There was a dollop of politics. When Alex Gibney won for his documentary “Taxi to the Dark Side,” about the use of torture in the war on terror, the director said he made it to honor his father, a former Navy interrogator, who was outraged at abuses revealed at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. “Let’s hope we can turn this country around and move from the dark side to the light,” Gibney said.

Out on the red carpet, Paul Haggis (the director whose “Crash” won Best Picture in 2006) said he didn’t know what accounts for all these deeply dark, brooding, troubled films. But isn’t it obvious, he asked, flashing an orange ribbon on his lapel. Orange, why orange? “It’s Guantanamo,” his Max Azria-clad wife, Deborah, said, showing off her orange bracelet, which read: “Silence + torture = complicity.” Suddenly, we noticed — orange ribbons and bracelets everywhere.

    John:

    Just wanted to let you know that the picture you posted is of Alex Gibney, who won an Oscar for his incredibly patriotic film “Taxi to the Dark Side” a film which has made a whopping $106,000 domestic. http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=taxitothedarkside.htm

    Easy to get him confused with Haggis as they are both bald, both total Hollywood patriots, and both natch, received Oscars.

    You might remember Gibney’s stirring Oscar speech urging America to return to the, ahem, Light side.

    I’m sure the Jew-hating jihadists all over the world got a good chuckle out of that bit of ripe dialog.
