“Hold your ground, hold your ground. Sons of Gondor, of Rohan, my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields, when the age of men comes crashing down, but it is not this day. This day we fight! For all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand, Men of the West!”
See Brussels Journal.
Of course, it helps if you don’t think about Viggo Mortensen being a raving leftie simp. He has shared a platform with Ramsey Clark at an A.N.S.W.E.R rally, and called for Bush to be impeached and jailed.
Oh well. That’s why he’s an actor, I suppose.
Viggo Mortensen is also a Danish citizen. He might be a looney leftist but that makes his picture on the post all the more appropriate.
Actually, Wally, that’s one of the reasons I used the photo — it gives me great pleasure to think how much he and the rest of the cast (except for Gimli) and the director etc. must hate how their work has been used by us right-wing extremist hate-filled fascist Bush-loving theocratic zombies.
It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and refreshes me so that I can go about the task of extorting pennies from widows and orphans with even greater zeal.
God uses men – even actors – to his own ends.
