We believe that Peter Jackson and New Line Cinema's actions are in fact hate speech. The movie is intentionally being named The Two Towers in order to capitalize on the tragedy of September 11. Clearly, you cannot deny the fact that this falls under hate speech. We believe that if they will not willingly change the name, the government should step in to stop the movie's production or to force a name change.

[u]The Two Towers.[/u] Amazing how they picked the same name for the movie.

Ya know, it never occured to me until reading the protest site that someone would confuse LoTR with 9/11. I believe I will protest the protest site for bringing it to my attention. What a bunch of jack-offs.

wow.. and here i was thinking that this movie had been titled and/or in production well before 9/11. and maby the name came from the book for whitch it was based. oh could it be that the movie is about TWO TOWERS, one dark and one light?? guess not, its hate speech.. i am such a moron... i guess i am feeling a litle sarcastic today.

Meanwhile on their website they use the images of the actual towers EXPLODING!!! to bolster emotional support. Which do you think is more offensive a picture of the actual building exploding, or an obscure/unintended reference to the towers (not the actual attack but the towers) It is scary how motivated stupid people can be!

This is flat out stupidity. Where's that lengthy "stupid" thread to email these people.

=========================== You swine. You vulgar little maggot. You worthless bag of filth. As we say in Texas, I'll bet you couldn't pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel. You are a canker. A sore that won't go away. I would rather kiss a lawyer than be seen with you. You're a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon. You are a bleating foal, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world. An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done. I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you. You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell? Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it more rapidly. You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you up, drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set you loose to fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the frothy pink shame of your ignoble blood. May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nausea of your own trite, foolish beliefs. You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid, nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You're a fool, an ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you. Even sheep won't have sex with you. You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot. And what meaning do you expect your delusionally self-important statements of unknowing, inexperienced opinion to have with us? What fantasy do you hold that you would believe that your tiny-fisted tantrums would have more weight than that of a leprous desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, waiting for the bite of the snake? You are a waste of flesh. You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a disease, you puerile, one-handed, slack-jawed, drooling, meatslapper. On a good day you're a half-wit. You remind me of drool. You are deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality of wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted. You are the source of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and sorrow wherever you go. You smarmy lagerlout git. You bloody woofter sod. Bugger off, pillock. You grotty wanking oik artless base-court apple-john. You clouted boggish foot-licking twit. You dankish clack-dish plonker. You gormless crook-pated tosser. You churlish boil-brained clotpole ponce. You cockered bum-bailey poofter. You craven dewberry pisshead cockup pratting naff. You gob-kissing gleeking flap-mouthed coxcomb. You dread-bolted fobbing beef-witted clapper-clawed flirt-gill. You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go away. I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Hydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid, so stupid it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid. Your writing has to be a troll. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I'm sorry. I can't go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me. After this, you may not hear from me again for a while. I don't have enough strength left to deride your ignorant questions and half baked comments about unimportant trivia, or any of the rest of this drivel. Duh. The only thing worse than your logic is your manners. I have snipped away most of your of whay you wrote, because, well... it didn't really say anything. Your attempt at constructing a creative flame was pitiful. I mean, really,stringing together a bunch of insults among a load of babbling was hardly effective... Maybe later in life, after you have learned to read, write, spell, and count, you will have more success. True, these are rudimentary skills that many of us "normal" people take for granted that everyone has an easy time of mastering. But we sometimes forget that there are "challenged" persons in this world who find these things more difficult. If I had known, that this was your case then I would have never read your post. It just wouldn't have been "right".Sort of like parking in a handicap space. I wish you the best of luck in the emotional, and social struggles that seem to be placing such a demand on you.

Some of these groups do have a tremendous impact on the public. Sometimes it is best to bow to their wishes in order to avoid confrontation which would probably help the studio at the box office. If it were up to me, I would probably listen to their demands and rename the movie. How does [b]"The Twin Towers"[/b] sound? Fuck them. What next, are they going to protest the various World Trade Centers across the US? I was just across the street from the one in Dallas the other day. What a bunch of fucking morons.

I sent them the message below, which I'm sure is way too subtle for their small minds, but I'm curios to see their response.
Though I am a fervent supporter of free speech, especially on the Internet, I find your parody site, www.twotowersprotest.org, in incredibly poor taste. While the concept that the name of a 50 year old work of literature should be censored because of a casual connection to the horrendous events of September 11, 2001 has a mildly humorous edge, the very concept of your site shows an incredible disrespect for those poor souls, too many of whom were my neighbors, whose lives were stolen from them by the cowardly attack on innocent civilians. I also hope that no one takes you up on your offer to 'fundraise' for your site. There are many web surfers who won't recognize this site for the parody that it is and may offer to, or actually send you money. I would hope that should this occur you would return the funds or transfer them immediately to a recognized 9/11 charity. Should I find that you are actively soliciting funds for your site, I will make sure that the proper legal authorities are informed and that action is taken. The mere fact that you are located in Canada will not protect you from fraud charges being pursued. You are clearly within your rights to maintain this web site, but I would hope that you will rethink your idea of a 'joke' and remove this from the web.

Dammit!!! This doesn't go far enough! We should start a movement to ban the number "two". Sure, it would make math a bit more complicated, but at least there won't be a risk of offending anyone.

So I responded with some bitter truths:
Do you mean that you truly believe that there is some connection between the name of Tolkien's work and the 9/11/01 event? If that is the case you're connection with reality is tenuous at best. Especially since you seem to have confused the nickname of the NYC World Trade Center (The Twin Towers), with the name of the book (The Two Towers). If your web site isn't parody, it is simply a sick misuse of a tragic event for some personal agenda. Are you also campaigning to have the several dozen buildings named "World Trade Center" in cities other than New York renamed? Do you have any concept of the real world? Please do not bother to respond. I don't need to hear from some self-centered moron that chooses to trivialize an event that killed one of my friends and the parents of friends of my children, and, but for a schedule change on my part, almost killed me. We recently dedicated a park here to the memory of those who died. I can only hope that others in our group don't stumble across your site. It's hard enough to deal with the event without finding total strangers with no connection to it trying to use it for their own self-aggrandizing means.

Your website is a joke. It is stupid beyond belief. Protest the name of a movie because of an unrelated tragic event? It is truely sad that a group of Americans would sit around crying about the name of a movie when their time and resources could be better used soliciting contributions for, or offering help to, those who were directly affected by these events. If you're just looking for something to do, take up bingo.

Boy, I must be slow. I never thought of a correlation between The Two Towers and the World Trade Center before you posted that web site. Frankly, I still don't see any correlation. Sounds like a tempest in teapot to me.
