"Moore" Of The Same ("Shamoo With A Camera")

'Moore' of the Same

by Christopher Flickinger Posted Mar 14, 2005

What's fat and white and still doesn't know it's all over? Michael Moore. Yes, the hairy, four-eyed, film-hustling freak has yet to accept the will of the American people and President Bush's re-election. That's right; "Shamoo with a camera" is still out there bashing America and the War on Terrorism. His latest attempt: promoting a global day of protest on the two-year anniversary of the Iraq invasion. This time Michael Moore is eating (I mean, teaming) with an organization called United for Peace and Justice. The global day of protest is set for Saturday, March 19th and calls for vigils, rallies, marches, supposedly nonviolent civil disobedience, and protests outside military bases and military recruitment offices. The goal, according to the United for Peace and Justice website, is to end the war, bring the troops home and rebuild our communities -- whatever that means.

This is absurd! It's ridiculous! It's meaningless -- a global day of protest? Don't they understand? Americans don't care what the rest of the world thinks. Remember that "Global Test" remark John Kerry made during the campaign? Yeah, I'm guessing that didn't go over well with the American people since he lost!

What is Michael Moore thinking? Is he serious, or has the fat just consumed his brain? Does he really think President Bush is going to change his mind about the war? "Oh Laura, I don't know about this whole war on terrorism thing. It was a hot topic during the campaign and even though I won and the American people support the war, I think I'm going to have to reconsider it now that Michael Moore and his cronies are holding a global day of protest." I can just hear President Bush saying that, can't you? And you've got to love the fact that a group called United for Peace and Justice is organizing this protest. I'm curious. Ending the war on terrorism would bring "justice" for whom exactly? Terrorists? Those who support terrorists? Whom?

Protesters plan to handout flyers on March 19th that detail "The Cost of Endless War." The pamphlet reads, "1,450 US dead. 10,700 U.S. wounded. 100,000 Iraqis dead. $150 billion spent. 0 reasons to be there." Isn't it amazing what stats and figures didn't make it onto these flyers?

Maybe the protesters were in a hurry to get their pamphlets printed, or maybe they just ran out of room on the flyer due to a laundry list of other facts they could have mentioned but didn't. Fifty million people have been liberated between Afghanistan and Iraq. Three-quarters of al Qaeda's known leaders and associates have been detained or killed. $140 million in terrorist assets have been blocked. $950 million dollars are now in Iraq's Ministry of Health budget. Compare that to the less than $1 each Iraqi was given for heath care under Saddam's regime. $32 billion of international aid has been pledged to rebuild the country. More Iraqi children are attending school. Small businesses are opening and creating new jobs. A free press now operates within Iraq. The country's first free election was just held with overwhelming success. 14.3 million Iraqis registered to vote. 18,900 candidates registered for seats in the new Iraqi administration. A transitional government has been elected and a new Iraqi Constitution will be drafted.

Why aren't these facts printed on the protesters' flyers? Let me guess. It's because these statistics come from the Bush Administration and can't be trusted. Iraq is not the success Bush wants Americans to believe, and this global protest is going to let the truth be known. Unbelievable! Sixty-some-million Americans told Michael Moore to shut-up, voted to keep Bush in the White House, and wanted justice for the Iraqi people and the victims of 9/11.

If the loony left is serious about its upcoming protest and refuses to acknowledge our success in Iraq, I plead with them to make enough room on their protest flyers for just one small additional comment: "Moore" of the same -- priceless!

The "Shamoo" was created by Al Capp. His other characters ended up in the White House for eight years in the 1990s.

Actually, it was a Shmoo that was created by Al Capp. They were fat little characters who did everything for you. Capp showed how having everything done for you caused the people to become lazy. The people drove out the Shmoos. So the Shmoo is a good character to represent the Dims.

I don't know where it comes from, but I find a strange comfort in it. It means there have been no more Iraqis deaths since the original invasion because that is the figure that has been used since then.

Those are the victims of Saddam through the years that the libs are trying to pin on Bush. Don`t you know? Everything is Bushs fault. The holocaust? That`s Bushs fault. The war of 1812? That`s Bushs fault. The meteor that killed the dinosaurs? That`s Bushs fault.

How about "The Cost of Peace in our Time"?

6 million Jews

20 million Russians

2 million Cambodians

200,000 Kurds

2 million Rwandans

The list goes on.

Actually, Al Capp created the "Shmoo". Shamoo is the domain of Sea World who has named a series of Orca whales "Shamoo".

Michael Moore does this because any mention of his name boosts his income (with the liberal losers being reminded of him yet again---to remind them to go out and buy his books and videos). The ulterior motive is profit. And it feeds his ego, too.

Why do you think Michael Jackson cooked up the whole "I hurt my back" bit in which he showed up for court in his PJs? If MJ really took the advice of his lawyers, he would have changed into more fitting attire. But instead he figures "people will feel sorry for me, being rushed back to court--no time to even change my clothes--after suffering a horrible backache". And people notice him more when he does oddball things...would it have grabbed as much notice if he had donned a suit upon returning to court? It feeds MJs ego...maybe he figures he'll sell some more albums...or at least "get his name in the papers".
Like it isn't already!

By the same token, Moore's "day of protest" calls attention to HIM. Every time it's mentioned on the news,
the fatso gets mentioned with it. More libs buying "Will They Trust Us Again?" or "F-911", etc. Ka-ching!

What's the joke I heard--what do Shamu the Killer Whale and Michael Jackson have in common? They're both black and white and live in an amusement park.

The 100,000 figure comes from some neurotic lefty org (can't remember name) that just took a poll of Iraqis asking if they knew anyone who had been killed. They did not bother with the obvious necessity of cross-checking to make sure that they weren't counting the same people over and over. If they bother with that, the figure is more like 15,000.

I'm sorry for not posting a link - the story is here somewhere on FR this weekend - just search for NYT and I'm sure you see it - the headline is about LOOTING OF WEAPONS IN IRAQ - it's really quite comical to read it because you realize that we KNEW all this years ago now .. and the NYT is finally admitting they knew it too.

Of course, their focus is that Bush was an incompetent because he didn't stop it. The new Iraqi govt gave the report to the NYT.

Hi Eric,

Al Capp's creation was the Schmoo.

Methinks the author of this is trying to make reference to "Shamu" the whale.

P.S. Pray for me, I have to fly NWA pretty soon.

Somebody get us a link -- or better yet, some excerpts. (Unfortunately, last I checked you have to subscribe for $30 a month to get into NYT on-line and I have not subscribed.)
