MICHAEL MOORE, THE NEW MOSES OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
Well, well, well, I knew it wouldn't be long before it would happen. The it, is the fact that the Democratic party, has lost its mind. It is applauding a Hollywood, power broker wanna-be, in his effort to bring down the Bush presidency, by any means necessary. The any means, are lies and deceit, which John Kerry, John Edwards, a majority of Democrats in the Senate and congress, union leaders, and all sorts of the fringe left wing thinkers of this nation, are lifting up as the truth.
Hollywood, the most corrupt thinking, scandal ridden, enemy of morality, that this country can have, is being lifted up as the new standard that the Democratic party has. The party wants power back so bad, they will do anything, say anything, and follow anyone that can show them how to do it.
In an article from U.S. News and World Report, July 12, 2004 issue, entitled, The Company They Keep, there are many troubling points that are made, not by Republicans, or other Bush supporters, but by Democrats, and others that oppose Bush on many fronts. Here, are a few.
In his documentary, 'Fahrenheit 9/11, Moore says that President Bush arranged for members of Osama bin Laden's extended family to be flown out of the United States after September 11. But former antiterrorism official Richard Clarke, no admirer of Bush, has said that he alone made that decision. Moore says the bin Ladens were not processed by the FBI; the 9/11 commission says they were. Moore is misleadingly selective. He shows footage of Taliban leaders in Texas in the 1990s when Bush was governor. But they were invited by an oil company, not Bush. The Moore film offers footage of children flying kites in Iraq but is silent about Saddam's atrocities.
"The real problem with the film, the really offensive thing about it," writes blogger Jeff Jarvis, a Democrat, and not a Bush supporter, "is that in Fahrenheit 9/11 we--Americans from the president on down--are portrayed as the bad guys."
It's amazing that any politician, however opposed to Bush, would want to be associated with this film or its maker, a man who said shortly after the 9/11 attacks: "We, the United States of America, are culpable in committing so many acts of terror and bloodshed that we had better get a clue about the culture of violence in which we have been active participants." As for the current situation in Iraq, Moore has written: "The Iraqis who have risen up against the occupation are not 'insurgents' or 'terrorists' or 'The Enemy.' They are the REVOLUTION, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow--and they will win." Are these messages Democrats really wish to embrace? (Apparently yes, my words)
Moore emphasizes his working-class roots in Flint, Mich., and his dedication to the workingman. But he seems to have nothing but contempt for most Americans. "They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet," he told the anti-American British tabloid the Mirror . "We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don't know about anything that's happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing."
This is a warning from a Democrat, yet while many don't know his name, look at who supports Moore's views, and gave the movie a standing ovation, and have espoused them to the nation, Democratic National Chairman Terry McAuliffe, Sens. Tom Daschle, Barbara Boxer, and Tom Harkin, Congressmen Henry Waxman, Charles Rangel, and Jim McDermott (who before the war said that he believed Saddam Hussein more than George W. Bush), and the 9/11 commission's most partisan member, Richard Ben-Veniste. The film received a standing ovation. In Manhattan, Democratic National Committee Treasurer Maureen White hosted a showing of the film for local big contributors. Seldom have leaders of a political party promoted a commercial film so shamelessly.
If you think that is bad, think about this. I sat in a union meeting, and heard the vice president of the local UAW, recommend the film, and then proceed to read off statistics, quoted from Moore's film, as the gospel.
The position Moore takes, and many Democratic leaders seem to agree with him on, is they would rather see us defeated in Iraq, than to see a Bush victory at the polls in November.
Their hatred for Bush is such, that this same union leader said, and I quote, 'If they put Mickey Mouse up there, I would vote for Him, than Bush.'
Friends, this is total lunacy.
Here we have supposedly intelligent people, saying they would rather vote for a cartoon character, than Bush, based in large part to the figments of someone's imagination.
Hollywood, that gives us all types of make believe characters from killer tomatoes, to aliens, to star wars, star trek, terminator, and a myriad of other films and tv shows like, All in the Family, Maude, and West Wing, and other venues to shock, to thrill and entertain us. When our kids ask us if these things are real, we tell them, 'It's only make believe.' Now we have adults, who want to be leaders of our nation, believing this supposed documentary.
Another thing about it. This movie, is Hollywood's answer to getting around new campaign rules that limit negative political attacks on politicians, by their opponents, or other groups. Congress passed a law, that essentially puts a stop to such tactics, within a certain amount of time, before the elections.
Since this documentary, is a film, and is 'art', it is not bound by these rules, and any attempt to stop it, will look like an attack on 'art'. So Moore, and his film, are the Democrats' hope, for keeping a negative campaign against Bush, going on, all the way up to the elections.
It is funny to watch these people, the Democrats, as they pursue their dream. They always pass laws that will be roadblocks to Republicans. But, when those laws become a roadblock to them, they look for ways around them.
That's what they tried to do in the 2000 elections, in Florida, that's what they tried in the 2002 elections with Sen. Torricelli's losing in his poll numbers, during that election.
They are just like a bunch of kids. If they don't like the rules, they just up and change them.
This nation's future is in jeopardy, not by Bush, and maybe not by terrorists, as much as it is, by a bunch of kids, who, will do anything to become 'king of the hill' again, even if it means, believing 'fairy tales.'
Do you really want them in control??? If you do, then you are probably the target audience of Michael Moore, and one of those stupid Americans, he thinks you are.
