Brad Pitt Signs On for "IBM and the Holocaust"

Posted: September 13th, 2012 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Brad Pitt Signs On for "IBM and the Holocaust"Submit Comment
There are a lot of companies around today that helped the Nazis during WWII. Brad Pitt is now developing a movie based on Edwin Black's 2001 best-seller "IBM and the Holocaust," to tells the story of IBMs involvement with the extermination of the Jews.

The book answers the question: How did the Nazis identify and round up so many Jews with such precision and speed? They accomplished this with the help of IBM's CEO Thomas Watson, who formed an alliance with Nazi Germany in 1933.

Punch cards were used to help sort through mountains of German census information, cross-referencing data about religion, nationality, profession, and location of 66 million Germans to quickly and ruthlessly identify, tax, ghettoize, deport, and ultimately exterminate Europe's 6 million Jews.

Sources familiar with the project say that Pitt has attached himself to star in order to attract directors. Many are already calling this movie the Holocaust version of Pitt's "Moneyball."

While we're at it, how about the Bush family and their links with Nazi Germany?

And Moneyball was so bloody boring watching Pitt sitting down throughout most of the film. So, good luck with that one.

"While we're at it, how about the Bush family and their links with Nazi Germany?"

Jesus christ, man, that sh*t again? Prescott Bush was on the board of a company that continued to do business a while after war was declared on Germany. Big f*cking deal. Before that, it was expected and entirely legal, even encouraged, to do business with them.

Same thing with IBM. They sold them some calculating machines BEFORE the holocaust, before it was illegal to do so, and this Black idiot made it into a huge f*cking deal with his book which tries to paint IBM as a genocidal collaborator, because he knows Americans love mudslinging every other day they're not pretending to love Jesus.

"Does anybody buy IBM anymore anyway?"

Yes. Mostly high-capacity servers, large-scale rack mounted procssing farms, and client-server software.
