Filmmaker Phelim McAleer labels Damon film “Classic Propaganda”

Judging by his ignorant and radical leftist rants on subjects such as public education, it’s probably no surprise Matt Damon opposes hydraulic fracturing, the highly effective process of extracting natural gas that some critics say is environmentally unfriendly.

Damon’s latest politically charged movie, though, has prompted one of his peers to call him “a liar” for claiming it isn’t an outlet for his own ideological views.

“Promised Land,” co-written by Damon, is “political from the beginning to the very end” and perpetuates the left’s misinformation about the process commonly known as “fracking,” said director Phelim McAleer. The filmmaker called the move “classic propaganda.”

McAleer’s own movie, “FrackNation,” presents the positive side of fracking and he is vocal in his criticism of Damon’s portrayal of the drilling method.

Dispelling the leftist claim that fracking leads to contaminated water supplies, McAleer points to historical data that far predates any such drilling.

“In America hundreds of years ago, Native Americans named three different locations ‘Burning Springs,’ he said. “Quite simply, this is because of the naturally occurring gases – like methane – that are found beneath the earth’s surface with water.”

He went on to say “there is no evidence that suggests that fracking has led to an increase in this phenomenon.”

A billboard campaign McAleer began in New York addresses the actor/activist directly, stating, “Matt Damon: the water has been on fire since 1669.”

When news broke that the United Arab Emirates, an influential member of OPEC, partially funded the film, Damon’s already shaky credibility took yet another serious blow.
