NAD's Disastrous Protest V. NFB protest

Many of us already knew about the NAD's disastrous protest against the "Tropic Thunder" film last summer 2008. NAD doesn't protest soley against "Tropic Thunder" for endless mockery against disabled people in general. NAD went along with other disabled groups' protest against that film.

What about you think about the National Federation of the Blind's latest protest against the new release film, "Blindness" with the star-studded casts all over from the world? This film is based on the novel with same title about the mystery global epidemic turned normal-sighted people instantly into blind people. That seems very interesting concept of probable occurence in the future of the humankind within the film.

Here is the link to the Yahoo News about the ongoing National Federation of the Blind nationwide protests against the "Blindness" film. You could see the National Federation of the Blind's speech text blasted the producers and director of "Blindness' for portraying blind people as some kind of depraved and filthy kinds. What do you really think about this film and ongoing protest by the National Federation of the Blind?





That would be real nice if we, deaf people finally bring our everlasting deaf folklore to the life on the silver screen like "Eyeth". Don't you agree?
