  • [ Dec 2012 ] Liberal Hypocrisy Alert: MIchael Moore’s Body Guard Arrested on Gun Violation

    03/24/2013 5:24:15 PM PDT · by NoLibZone · 22 replies ^ | Dec 20 2012 |
    Filmmaker Michael Moore’s bodyguard was arrested for carrying an unlicensed weapon in New York’s JFK airport Wednesday night. Police took Patrick Burke, who says Moore employs him, into custody after he declared he was carrying a firearm at a ticket counter. Burke is licensed to carry a firearm in Florida and California, but not in New York. See, Moore believes in 2nd Amendment rights for his well-heeled self, but in typical totalitarian-embracing left-wing fashion, he just doesn’t believe in 2nd Amendment rights for the less well off or less politically connected.

    "I think, first of all this must seem odd to people in other countries that we view our Constitution as if it was written by God himself. That it was somehow, through some sort of divine intervention or whatever, it was etched in stone like Moses and the tablets. And because what they thought was right in 1776 to 1789, that is the way we have to live today in the 21st century," Michael Moore said on the Tuesday night broadcast of CNN's "Pier Morgan Tonight."

    Moore: Democrats are 'going to get an ass-whoopin' of biblical proportions' By Tony Romm - 03/07/10 09:08 AM ET Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore on Sunday railed on Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, predicting, "Democrats on Election Day 2010 are going to get an ass-whoopin' of biblical proportions if things don't change right now." In an open letter to the White House, Moore placed the blame for Democrats' dismal electoral prospects in 2010 squarely on the shoulders of Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, recently a popular target for liberals dissatisfied with the White House's handling of healthcare. While Moore praised the...

That's a house of cards waiting to fall. So the crash of '08 is going to look like coming attractions. And we're in for a much, much worse time.

    I interviewed Michael Moore recently for an upcoming "20/20" special on health care. It's refreshing to interview a leftist who proudly admits he's a leftist. He told me that government should provide "food care" as well as health care and that big government would work if only the right people were in charge. Moore added, "I watch your show and I know where you are coming from. ... " He knows I defend limited government, so he tried to explain why I was wrong.

    American Thinker ^ | July 11, 2007 | Peter Barry Chowka
    Despite being given more attention than any other documentary film in history, Michael Moore's Sicko is performing below expectations–at this rate taking in less than one-fifth of his previous film Fahrenheit 9/11. Moore's smackdown performance with Wolf Blitzer on CNN was calculated to generate controversy about and rekindle interest in the lagging Sicko box office. Moore's schtick was like throwing red meat to his large core fan base that already thinks that CNN is right of center, too soft on (if not in cahoots with) the Bush-Cheney administration, and complicit in the selling of the Iraq war to the American...

    Howard Dean's collapse in the December of 2003 and January 2004 is obscured by the sound of his famous scream.  The scream disguised the real result of Iowa, which was a resounding rejection of the orange-capped Deanics, the Al Gore endorsement and the Rob Reiner election day campaigning.  Dean's oratorical excess on the night of his loss was so memorable that the rejection of the left by Iowa Democrats was quickly forgotten. The unlearned lesson of Iowa is that the left is deeply distrusted by the center, much more so than the right.  This is the story that is unfolding,...

    Representing the far-left wing that is said to now be running the Democrat Party, Michael Moore is warning all Democrat candidates for office that they must tow the leftist line or face defeat as did Senator Joe Lieberman. Moore also warns these candidates that the left-wing of the Democrat Party will work actively to defeat all candidates that do not support an anti-war policy and an immediate withdrawal from Iraq. Moore’s website states: “Let the resounding defeat of Senator Joe Lieberman send a cold shiver down the spine of every Democrat who supported the invasion of Iraq and who continues...

The man who loathed Bush so much he spent millions of dollars making a film, "Fahrenheit 9/11," the main purpose of which was to discredit the president. The man who went on national television and relentlessly toured the United States begging people to vote the Republicans out of office. Moore never missed an opportunity to ram home the fact that he sought nothing less than total humiliation for Dubya. But since Bush was returned to the White House,...

    Controversial film-maker Michael Moore is planning to make a hard-hitting documentary based on US President George W. Bush's handling of the Hurricane Katrina rescue operation. Moore grabbed international acclaim with his scathing 2004 film Fahrenheit 9/11, which studied Bush's handling of the September 11th terrorist attacks. The Oscar winner is now "seriously considering" documenting the catastrophe in America's Gulf Coast region. He tells the New York Daily News, "There is much to be said and done about the man-made annihilation of New Orleans, caused not by a hurricane but by the very specific decisions made by the Bush administration in...

It is also a spectacle of abject political cowardice masking itself as a demonstration of dissenting bravery. At no point does Moore make the smallest effort to be objective. At no moment does he pass up the chance of a cheap sneer or a jeer. He pitilessly focuses his camera, for minutes after he should have turned it off, on a distraught and bereaved mother whose grief we have already shared. But, then, this is...

    NEW YORK -- Having already won an Oscar, a Palme d'Or, and international fame, filmmaker Michael Moore is launching his latest film, ''Fahrenheit 9/11," this week with an even more ambitious goal -- to influence the outcome of this year's presidential election. Moore, in front of an enthusiastic crowd of celebrities, said, ''It would be a good thing" if his politically charged documentary about Sept. 11 and Iraq inspires Democrats to vote against President Bush. In keeping with the Democratic movement to elect ''anybody but Bush," Moore did not say a word about the presumptive Democratic nominee, either on screen...

    PAUL KRUGMAN, the liberal economist and columnist for The New York Times Op-Ed Page, has recently urged his fellow liberals to be less civil toward their conservative foes. The British publisher of his latest book, "The Great Unraveling," however, may have taken Mr. Krugman's advice further than he intended. Unlike the relatively staid cover of the American edition published by W. W.

A dark scrawl on the vice president's forehead reads, "Got Oil?" Christine Iverson, a spokeswoman for the...

No, it took a simple picture for the New York Times to finally distance itself from America's most dangerous liberal pundit, Paul Krugman. The picture in question is on the cover of the U.K./Australia version of Krugman's best-selling book, The Great Unraveling. It's a photomontage showing the face of President George W. Bush with huge Frankenstein sutures across his mouth and brow, and the word "Enron" stitched into his forehead. Vice President Dick Cheney's face sports...

    Call for Britons to shout down Bush From correspondents in London November 11, 2003 MICHAEL Moore, author, filmmaker and satirical nemesis of George W Bush, urged Britons overnight to take to the streets by the tens of thousands to protest the US president's visit to London. In town to promote his new book, Dude, Where's My Country?, Moore quipped he was the "advance man" for next week's first-ever, full-dress state visit to Britain by a US president. "Bush has been using the British people now for the better half of a year as a cover essentially to say, 'See, it's...
  • Michael Moore: Americans Are Stupid P****s

    ...Take his deion of his fellow countrymen and their blind pursuit of the American Dream: "They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet... in thrall to conniving, thieving, smug pricks. "We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don't know about anything that's happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing. National Geographic produced a survey which showed that 60 per cent of 18-25 year olds don't know where Great Britain is on a map. And 92 per cent of us don't own a passport."

    Letter to Editor: Recently, a co-worker asked me if I had seen the movie Bowling for Columbine yet, I told her absolutely not! My answer surprised her, given the fact my son, Matthew, was one of the 13 murdered during the deadliest school shooting in our country's history. I explained to her that prior to the public release of the movie the families of the injured and dead were invited by Michael Moore to attend a preview screening. How thoughtful. Our family and others considered attending because we were genuinely interested in his message to the public regarding gun control...

    Author and filmmaker Michael Moore preached to the choir at two sold-out performances in Santa Cruz, Calif., using the opportunity to hammer talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh and President Bush, as well as discuss potential Democratic candidates for the White House. On Sunday, Moore's book tour/political pep rally rolled into the traditionally liberal town for shows at the Civic Auditorium, the San Jose Mercury News reported. "Would it hurt your feelings if I tell you that we had 3,000 more in Baltimore?" he asked the first crowd, according to the paper. "That's the good news: It's not just Santa Cruz...

    Friday, October 24, 2003 2003 My wife, Tina, had a hard time getting to sleep last night. She was afraid. Afraid of the dozens of strangers calling our house late at night. Calling with profanities, veiled threats...and Michael Moore made it happen. It all began with the phony baloney author and film maker...yes, the same guy who won an Oscar for his so-called "documentary" in which the first scenes were faked. That kind fame lets him draw the ten thousand at Memorial Coliseum last night. Moore has a strange sense of humor. He lacks the guts to meet up...

    In the ongoing grudge match between liberal and conservative icons, there is little room for sympathy. On Saturday, award-winning film director and progressive liberal Michael Moore gave a sold-out speech at the University’s Sports Pavilion. Interestingly, amid sympathizing with University strikers and the many victims of President George W. Bush’s doctrine, Moore showed little sympathy for diametrically opposed Rush Limbaugh and his admitted drug problem. In the press conference held before his speech, Moore addressed a question about Limbaugh’s admitted addiction by saying Limbaugh was an “ugly, mean-spirited bastard” who was the “leading hate speech advocate of the past decade....

    When the powers-that-be succeeded in ignoring-and then silencing-the nation's widespread dissent over war, one man stood on an Oscar stage and, in front of a billion people, outed the commander in chief for his fictitious presidency and his fictitious war. Now, just a few months later, those words have remarkably become the accepted truth of the land. Yes, Michael Moore is the scourge of Stupid White Men everywhere. He's taken on fat cats, gun nuts, lying politicians. The Guardian describes him as "a wake-up call, a kick in the mental backside." And now he's back-daring to ask the most...

In this final extract from his explosive new book, Michael Moore explains why the corporate bosses will never let the American dream become a reality Tuesday October 7, 2003 The Guardian Buy Dude, Where's My Country? at Perhaps the biggest success in the war on terror has been its ability to distract the nation from the corporate war on us. In the two years since the attacks of 9/11, American businesses have been on a punch-drunk rampage that has left millions of average...

    Germany is the latest to be swept up by the craze Sept. 22 issue — To get a sense of how deep mistrust of the United States runs in Germany, take a look at the bookshelves. Two years after September 11, German bookstores are flooded with such works as “The CIA and September 11,” in which a former government minister of Research and Technology, Andreas von Bulow, insinuates that the U.S. and Israeli intelligence services blew up the World Trade Center from the inside. The two Boeings, he claims, were flown in by remote control as a cover-up. The whole...
