Twenty years after his humiliating eviction from the United States, Chaplin is awarded an honorary Oscar. The film industry may have felt remorse for what had happened, but not the government it seems: in this video we learn that Chaplin was in fact granted a special 10-day visa... Chaplin's daughter Geraldine discusses her father's acceptance of the honorary Oscar.

That speech was beautiful, I get chills every time I hear it
Due to a revolution in his country, King Shahdov comes to New York - almost broke. To get some money he goes to TV, making commercials and meets the child from communist parents. Due to this he is suddenly a suspected as a communist himself and has to face one of McCarthy's hearings.

The "commies vs. democracies" is just another Hegelian dialectic in action.
Congratulations to you'all still falling for it (no matter whose "side" you are on--Chaplin, McCarthy--you lose).
The wicked PTB salute you and laugh at you.
While you puff yourselves up with how "good" you are ("ohhh, I never knew this about Charlie Chaplin--look at me, I am a moonbat do-gooder and soon to be a god, just like the movies and evolution tell me"), the satanic new world order moves forward.....pathetic and sad.
Be a man. Grow up. Get yourself a King James 1611 bible, repent, believe on Jesus, and start reading in the book of John. Read 7 chapters out loud every day.....redeem the time. The day is at hand.
Charlie Chaplin's son Charles Chaplin, Jr. describes how his father was haunted by the similar backgrounds of Hitler and himself. He writes,
Their destinies were poles apart. One was to make millions weep, while the other was to set the whole world laughing. Dad could never think of Hitler without a shudder, half of horror, half of fascination. “Just think,” he would say uneasily, “he’s the madman, I’m the comic. But it could have been the other way around."

I shared a video to my social networking profiles during the height of the arab spring last year, I had found it here at ATS and it was the great dictator speech set to images of the arab spring. Pretty damn touching I find myself reposting it every now and then just to first off not forget about it. And secondly because it was so touching and moving. Rings so true today as the military machine continues to rule the world of machine people.
