After a screening of his pro-fracking film Fracknation at the Egg on Monday (Jan. 11), filmmaker Phelim McAleer took questions from the audience. At one point the Q&A got heated as McAleer shamed “liberals” for their support of foreign oil. He said that buying Saudi Arabian oil was in effect supporting the oppression of gays and women. He addressed the audience: “I thought the left was in favor of gay rights? I though the left was in favor of women’s rights?” The film was funded with $212,265 from a Kickstarter campaign.
