Spike Lee: Another Reason Why Europeans Hate Americans.

Spike Lee wasn't even alive during WW2, yet he claims to be an expert in history.

His upcoming film "Miracle At Saint Ana," contains offensive inaccuracies that have deeply insulted people in Italy who actually were there. When faced with their protests, Spike responded with his usual snobbish arrogance.

"We don't have anything to apologize for," Spike said. "I would not allow anybody to tell me how to make a film, be it a partisan or the president of the United States." End quote.

Veteran partisans from era-based resistance fighter organizations are calling for protests.

Although I understand the message he is trying to convey with his movies, Spike Lee's ham-fisted clumsiness with history and subsequent jack-ass behavior, however, doesn't help his cause or his people.
