Matt Damon’s portrayal in “Team America” as a dim-witted tool of anti-American interests appears to have been more fact than fiction.
“A new film starring Matt Damon presents American oil and natural gas producers as money-grubbing villains purportedly poisoning rural American towns. It is therefore of particular note that it is financed in part by the royal family of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates,” The Heritage Foundation’s Lachlan Markey reveals.
“While left-leaning Hollywood often targets supposed environmental evildoers, Promised Land was also produced “in association with” Image Media Abu Dhabi, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Media, according to the preview’s list of credits. A spokesperson with DDA Public Relations, which runs PR for Participant Media, the company that developed the film fund backing Promised Land, confirmed that AD Media is a financier. The company is wholly owned by the government of the UAE.”
The movie presents numerous fictionalized, debunked attacks on fracking. It was produced with the intention to cripple the United States’ fast-growing natural gas economy.
That would be a financial windfall for Arab nations, as it would leave a weaker United States dependent on foreign oil and natural gas.
The fact is Matt Damon took Arab money with the intent to make the United States weaker and subservient to the Middle East.
