Degenerate of the Week: Maggie Gyllenhaal

NY1: Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal Makes Controversial Remarks About 9/11
"I think what's good about the movie is that it deals with 9/11 in such a subtle, open, open way that I think it allows it to be more complicated than just 'Oh, look at these poor New Yorkers and how hard it was for them,' because I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way and so I think the delicacy with which it's dealt with allows that to sort of creep in," said Gyllenhaal.
Maggie Gyllenhaal, actress and Jeanane Garofalo clone. The film is "subtle" but it's "open"? If America has done such "represensible things," why does the film merely let the idea "creep in"? Why not announce it? Perhaps because the entire assertion is a pile of $h*t? Of course, don't expect any apologies or sense of regret from Miss Maggie:
In the statement, Gyllenhaal stuck by her comments, saying in part: "Not to have the courage to ask these questions of ourselves is to betray the victims of 9/11."
Translation? We honor our 3,000 dead by damning our government. Nevermind the 19 Muslim fantatics who actually perpetrated the tragic event. (And such stupid, illogical assertions are so "courageous.") Of course, Maggie would never make such horrid statements for quickie publicity for herself or her film, right?
