....And it was always said of him, that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed the knowledge. May that be truly said of us, and all of us! ...God bless Us, Every One!”

Bertolucci's death has brought out the leftest crazies - I repeat myself - and gotten at least one critic (a liberal himself) fired merely for referencing the rape scene in LAST TANGO:

"National Public Radio fired film critic David Edelstein Tuesday over what is being inaccurately publicized as a “rape joke.”

Edelstein has been a respected critic for three decades. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Variety, Esquire and a host of others. For nearly ten years he was Slate’s film critic. The 59-year-old has written books and is a member of the New York Film Critics Circle and the National Society of Film Critics.

And now he is being blacklisted.

Politically, Edelstein and I probably agree on nothing, but no decent person can stand by as this man’s entire life and reputation are burnt to the ground over nothing.

On Monday, using his Facebook page, Edelstein posted a joke. Using a still from the most iconic scene in Bernardo Bertolucci’s most iconic film, 1972 ‘s Last Tango in Paris — a scene involving a stick of butter and sodomy — Edelstein wrote, “Even grief is better with butter.”
------------------------------

The article goes on to explain the reference and the faux rage over the comment.  Edelstein has learned the hard way that wrong think will be punished, and right think rewarded.
