Muhammed movie that fanned violence, the Bakersfield connection

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

The film believed to be the work of the mysterious Sam Bacile (whoever and wherever he is) and a snippet of which posted to YouTube helped spark anti-American violence in Libya and Egypt, looks increasingly kooky. Gawker quotes an actress in the film, “Innocence of Muslims,” one Cindy Lee Garcia of Bakersfield, as saying the film makes her “sick,” that she was never told the true nature of the movie, and that the offenses the film portrays her as uttering were dubbed on top of completely different lines she delivered. An excerpt:

"The script she was given was titled simply Desert Warriors.

"'It was going to be a film based on how things were 2,000 years ago,' Garcia said. 'It wasn't based on anything to do with religion, it was just on how things were run in Egypt. There wasn't anything about Muhammed or Muslims or anything.'
