Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney are fearless when it comes to taking on prominent liberal causes.
And liberals, for that matter.
The duo’s documentary “FrackNation” showed another, more positive side of the fracking debate. Their arguments aren’t the kind you hear out of Hollywood. They made the movie on their terms all the same.
When Matt Damon hit the promotional circuit to promote his 2012 flop “Promised Land,” McAleer asked him at a public event why his film used Middle Eastern oil money to attack fracking.
The duo’s latest project is even more confrontational. They’ve set up a crowdfunding project to send director Josh Fox to Afghanistan.
Fox recently weighed in on the U.S. Military’s use of the MOAB device on ISIS. That “mother of all bombs” took out dozens of ISIS fighters. Fox still had reservations.
Consider the text from two Fox tweets:
“Atrocity. Murder. Abomination. When will we learn that only #love stops hate, and bombings only create more #ISIS? #moab #stoptrump.”
“Love your enemy. Don’t create more of them. Teachers, diplomacy, culture and aid helps peace. Bombs don’t. #MOAB #murder #NoMoreWars.”
So how much will it cost to send Fox packing? The goal is $2,500, and the campaign has raised nearly 40 percent in less than a day. Where does that money go?
The fundraiser will pay for Fox’s airfare to Afghanistan, 2 nights in a hotel and a dozen roses so Fox can show ISIS how much he really loves them.
If Fox declines the check the money will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
The filmmakers aren’t the only ones taking Fox on from the right. Pundit Katie Pavlich of Townhall.com and Fox News challenged Fox to debate the issue via a series of tweets. So far, the pair haven’t come up with an agreement.
