“An American Carol” Parodies “Radical Christian Terrorism”

You’ve probably never heard of the 2008 film “An American Carol,” which was directed by David Zucker and features a cast including Kelsey Grammar, Trade Adkins, Gary Coleman, Leslie Neilson, and Bill O’Reilly among others.

The plot of the movie takes the form of parodying “A Christmas Carol.” Instead of Scrooge, the story’s main antagonist is a documentary filmmaker bearing the likeness of Michael Moore, named “Michael Malone.” As he works towards the goal of abolishing the 4th of July, he’s visited three times by the ghost of George Patton (played by Kelsey Grammar). The movie is a funny mockery of Moore’s anti-Americanism, and one skit in the film stands out.

I imagine the clip isn’t funny for liberals. That’s because it’s SO true!

What did you think of the clip? Did you enjoy it? Share it with others if you thought it was funny!
