Michael Moore Claims Cindy's Group Has Delivered 100 Tons Of Supplies For Katrina Relief
Sweetness & Light ^ | September 13, 2005 | N/A

Posted on 09/13/2005 1:49:54 PM PDT by Sam Hill

Notorious propagandist, Michael Moore claims in this report that more than 100 tons of supplies have been delivered by the Veterans For Peace helping with hurricane Katrina relief.

If so, this is news to the person who owns and operates the mini-storage the VFP are working out of. She says she has seen no large deliveries, no tractor-trailers, no massive quantities of supplies. She reports she has only seen a few small (private) trucks go back and forth and a few boxes around.

But Michael Moore claims he has the photos to prove it:

Tuesday, September 13th, 2005
Cindy Sheehan Arrives

The supplies keep rolling in at Camp Casey III in Covington, Louisiana.

Cars, trucks, buses are loaded up in the morning and sent off in different directions. They are told not to come back until everything is gone, and they don't come back until everything is gone.

You, dear reader, can help their efforts by sending supplies, housing volunteers, or volunteering yourself. Check VFPRoadTrips.org and the message board there to get involved.

Cindy Sheehan arrives at Camp Casey III in about half an hour.

“My efforts for these last weeks since we left Camp Casey, in Crawford have been about standing up against the inept policies of the Bush Admin and about helping people who are suffering because of those policies,“ Sheehan said. “The good citizens of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama are certainly among this group, and I want to do whatever I can to be of assistance to them,”

Volunteers at Camp Casey III have already delivered over 100 tons of food and supplies to communities in Louisiana and Mississippi that had seen no relief until they arrived.

They are working with community leaders in some areas; in other areas, they are simply delivering food, water, and other supplies to individuals. Yesterday they delivered 20 tons of supplies to the neighborhoods of West Bank, Algiers, lower gardens and French Quarter in New Orleans and Bay St. Louis and Kiln, Mississippi.

Cindy will spend the day with the Veterans for Peace and the volunteers at Camp Casey III delivering supplies.

More to come...

Of course even these photos only show one "truckload" of supplies, taken from two different angles. And there is nothing to identify it with the VFP's purported efforts at all.

But since the woman who runs the storage center the VFP are using says she's seen none of this, where are these photographs from, Michael?

And while were on the subject, where are these "Camp Casey kitchens" you say you want to keep cooking on the front page of your truth-seeking site?

All the VFP have is their bus and their storage unit. And they have been told to leave their storage unit, and are looking for a new place.

I hear that she was able to raise the one hundred tons because Michael Moore himself made a sizable donation of surplus food after he fasted for one day.

Okay, now. The Mikey Moore has really gone off the deep end this time. He's referring to himself as "supplies".

Maybe it has. So what? Is Moore saying that Sheehan is somehow more noble than the anonymous millions that have donated and contributed?

They are delivering supplies in New Orleans? How many people are left in these neighborhoods, and would these trucks be allowed in anyway?

Good comedy usually has some element of truth to it. The very idea of him fasting for a day is ludicrous, just totally unbelievable.

I'd also like to see how they got to Bay St. Louis since entry into the town has been blocked by barbed wire since last Thursday.

However, Fahrenheit 911 has been on the rack 4 of the last 5 times I've been there...

100 tons is only 4 truckloads which is possible. Good for them. It is not worth crowing about.

1.) 100 tons in one semi? Man them roads are ruined, not to mention the semi.

2.) Nobody left in NO who needs it. They are all in Houston and other places.

Maybe they should have put this effort into sending care packages to the troops
they purport to care so much about.

The chances of this being true are so vanishingly small, it is astonishing they would make such a claim in the first place.

Unless they consider Michael Moore to be "supplies", in which case 100 tons is an underestimate.

Excellent point that is always left out of the left's propoganda. Not only have taxpayers been sacked with the bill for the recovery, but we've already paid for what was there and the tons of food paid for with food stamps. Our benevolent society has always "relieved" people......of their responsibilities.

Michael Moore does take the time and space to show us this heart-warming image from the VFP's heroic efforts:

Billy, Veteran for Peace, delivers food to Reverand [sic] Moses L. Powell. Poweel [sic] will distribute the food to his community.

A Google for Reverend [sic] Moses L. Powell netted nothing. But there is this listing in the Times-Picayune for such a name, but with no mention of his reverend-ness.

DWI ARRESTS
Saturday, April 23, 2005

This list of people booked with driving while intoxicated and related charges was provided by the Orleans Parish Criminal Sheriff's Office.

APRIL 7-16

Moses L. Powell, 40, 327 Atlantic Ave., New Orleans, April 7, 10:50 p.m., at Dublin and Dixon streets, DWI.

As with the VFP's point man for Katrina relief, the phony Vietnam Combat Veteran Ward Reilly, it's very assuring to know these hundreds of tons of supplies are getting into trustworthy hands.

Where did they get all this food. It doesnt look like individual donations since there are pallet quantities of the same product. It looks more like a typical delivery load to a Safeway or Ralphs.

The only way to purchase pallet quantities is through a wholesaler, such as Costco. Show us the receipts as proof.

Another example of racism:

If this guy were not from the left, the caption from the Boston Globe would be: white guy wrestles debit card from poor reverend after leaving him in New Orleans to fend for himself.

------

seriously- if these guys are helping, that is great. This looks though a lot like the Kerry campaign where they are trying harder to convince others of their compassion than truly helping others in need.

It's a good thing those people aren't soldiers, because they wouldn't get a thing.

It's no wonder there are so many of these "reverends" around. And, somehow they are shown more respect than the President and his cabinet. Hmmm.

Thanks for giving the liberal another alibi for these people not getting out of NO. The police took his means of transportation before the hurricane, thus leaving him to fend for himself. /sarc

I don't know if being drunk behind the wheel indicates the inability to be helpful in times like this. But, it seems the left is pretty easy to please if you are on their side. Too bad Mr. Brown (FEMA) wasn't a flaming liberal- he could have done cocaine the night before and still had a job.

/sarc!!
