  • Michael Moore’s Long Tradition of Defaming Heroes

    01/31/2015 5:25:41 AM PST · by Kaslin · 23 replies ^ | January 30, 2015 | Humberto Fontova
    The “military hero as coward” motif has a long tradition with Michael Moore. But his earlier oinkings in this regard--well before the release of American Sniper-- were aimed at much safer targets. “Wimps,” writes Moore in Downsize This. “These Cuban exiles, for all their chest-thumping and terrorism, are really just a bunch of wimps—that’s right: Wimps.”In a manner that would instantly arouse and mobilize the politically–correct police (were it any minority group except overwhelmingly Republican Cuban-Americans) Moore was dissing Cuban-Americans in general but singling out the Bay of Pigs freedom-fighters for special spite and scorn. “Ex-Cubans with a yellow stripe...

    UNE 5--With his divorce trial looming, Michael Moore is battling his wife over the valuation of the couple’s assets, while branding her a spendthrift who “unilaterally wasted a large percentage of the marital funds” building a lakefront mansion that has prompted mocking news stories about the activist filmmaker’s wealth. Moore and Kathleen Glynn are scheduled for trial next month in a Michigan courtroom not far from the sprawling Torch Lake residence that the Hollywood power contends became a money pit that cost five times what his wife claimed she would spend on the home.

    In fairness to Moore he's probably talking about the atrocities committed totalitarian dictators 20th century (excluding guys like Mao, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein, Muammar Gaddafi, etc., etc., etc...none of the crimes those guys committed count in his estimation)In fairness to me I'm mistakenly assuming that means he's referring to Hitler and Stalin when he's probably referring to Ronald Reagan.In any case, he's a freakin' idiot, with Exhibit infinity below.

    Michael Moore gets the Michael Moore treatment in a new documentary created by a fellow Michigan resident. Accountant turned filmmaker Kevin Leffler isn’t a dyed in the wool Republican trying to score cheap shots off the liberal gadfly. He’s just a regular Midwesterner who knew the guy being trumped up in the press as the straight talking Everyman wasn’t the real deal. Leffler grew up in the same part of Michigan as Moore, attending the same Catholic Church and even working together on a local youth hotline. So when Leffler calls out Moore, it means something. “Shooting Michael Moore” lets...

    Michael Moore basks in Dodd's retirement By Jordan Fabian - 01/07/10 09:51 AM ET Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore on Thursday basked in Sen. Chris Dodd's (D-Conn.) decision to retire. After targeting him in his latest documentary, "Capitalism: A Love Story," Moore has called on Dodd — who officially announced his retirement Wednesday — to step down. Splashed across Moore's website is a banner that reads, "There Was No Other Decision to Make: Four months after our request for him to retire, Senator Christopher Dodd agrees." Moore claimed that, in order for Democrats to keep the longtime senator's seat, Dodd had...

    In a variant of the Golden Rule, Kevin Leffler has recently done to Michael Moore what Michael Moore has done to so many others.  In Shooting Michael Moore Mr. Leffler produces a commendable documentary that shows Michael Moore to be something other than that self-anointed, compassionate advocate for the "little guy." Echoing the format of Moore's first documentary, Roger and Me, Mr. Leffler, a former schoolmate and friend of Michael Moore, seeks out the elusive Moore.  It is quickly evident that Moore (not unlike Al Gore) does not appreciate confrontation or having the truth or the effects of his body...

Reacting to charges that his polarizing activism galvanized Republicans, Moore -- director of the provacative, anti-Bush film "Fahrenheit 9/11" -- contended Kerry lost the race simply because he was "not the best candidate." "For the last month, we've had to listen to a lot of conservative pundits talk about how Democrats need to run away from Hollywood," Moore told reporters before addressing...

    Michael Moore's much-disparaged film could actually change the course of civilisation, writes John Berger. Fahrenheit 9/11 is astounding. Not so much as a film - although it is cunning and moving - but as an event. Most commentators try to dismiss the event and disparage the film. Let's explore why. The artists on the Cannes film festival jury apparently voted unanimously to award Michael Moore's film the Palme d'Or. Since then it has touched many millions across the world. In the United States, its box-office takings for the first six weeks amounted to more than $US100 million ($A142 million), which...

    In his new movie, Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore reviews the Bush administration’s publicly stated rationale for the war against terrorism in Afghanistan – it was part of the U.S. response to the attacks of September 11, 2001 – and then suggests that the real reason for the war was, at least in part, to enable Unocal to proceed with a natural gas pipeline project in Afghanistan and for other U.S. energy and oil-service companies to participate in various projects in that country. Unocal has absolutely no intention of participating in an Afghanistan pipeline project nor are we in discussions with...

    [excerpted] Moviemaker Michael Moore is entitled to his opinion. I even respect his audacity. I mean, come on? Who else has the guts to make up such garbage about any sitting president (unless you believe that former President Bill Clinton is innocent of sexual harassment — in which case Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, Monica Lewinsky and Juanita Broaddrick are all just as audacious). I'm not going to sit here and point out the inaccuracies in Moore's film. You can get that on any number of Web sites or news stories. Look, "Fahrenheit 911" is an overwhelming success, considering the historical...
  • My First Wild Week with "Fahrenheit 9/11"... By Michael Moore (count the lies and distortions)

    Friends, Where do I begin? This past week has knocked me for a loop. "Fahrenheit 9/11," the #1 movie in the country, the largest grossing documentary ever. My head is spinning. Didn't we just lose our distributor 8 weeks ago? Did Karl Rove really fail to stop this? Is Bush packing? Each day this week I was given a new piece of information from the press that covers Hollywood, and I barely had time to recover from the last tidbit before the next one smacked me upside the head: ** More people saw "Fahrenheit 9/11" in one weekend than all...

    The link above goes to the ABC website showing the tape obtained by Time magazine this week showing a terrorist bombing, killing three US soldiers, under the heading, "Terror Tape". As an aside, guess who is on the cover of Time this week. Yep the rotund America hater, michael moore, who said that he had cameramen in Iraq. Also of interest.

    Unless you've been hiding in a closet, you've probably heard about Michael Moore's record-breaking new movie "Fahrenheit 9/11," in which the gadfly producer-author says the war in Iraq is really just President Bush's war for oil and big business. Moore, the Davison native who's become a kind of Rush Limbaugh of the Left in recent years, insists in interviews that everything in his movie is true. His critics charge the movie is propaganda. Now, on the heels of the opening of "Fahrenheit," comes "Michael Moore Is a Big Fat Stupid White Man," a book by two of his biggest detractors,...

    NEW YORK — As a young boy, I loved the American flag. I'd lead my younger sisters in patriotic parades up and down the sidewalk, waving the flag, blowing a whistle and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance over and over until my sisters begged me to let them go back to their Easy-Bake Oven. I loved singing the national anthem. I won an essay contest on "What the Flag Means to Me." I decorated my bicycle with little American flags for a Fourth of July parade and won a prize for that too. I became an Eagle Scout and proudly...

    Excited about "Fahrenheit 9/11?" It's the Palme d'Or-winning and doubtless soon to be Oscar-winning "documentary" from average blue-collar multimillionaire Michael Moore. I saw it last weekend with an audience composed wholly of informed, intelligent sophisticates. I knew they were informed, intelligent sophisticates because they howled with laughter at every joke about what a bozo Bush is. They split their sides during the patriotic ballad -- eagles soaring, etc. -- composed and sung by John Ashcroft, the famously sinister attorney general. Moore reveals -- and if you feel that knowing the plot would spoil the movie, please skip to the next...

    The morning after I saw Michael Moore's new film, Fahrenheit 9/11, I visited my local book shop to inspect the titles it stocked by the director himself and by other writers implacably hostile to George W Bush. On the counter was a pile of Moore's most recent bestseller, Dude, Where's My Country?. And his 2001 polemic, Stupid White Men, which has sold 350,000 copies in Britain alone, was also prominently displayed. In the same genre, though not by Moore, the shop offered such gems as The Bush-Hater's Handbook, Bushwomen: Tales of a Cynical Species, Ugly Americans, What's Wrong with America?,...

    The lies from Michael Moore’s latest schlock-umentary begin before you enter the theater. On the posters out front, the movie is identified as “Fahrenheit 9/11.” Half the title and most of the concept were stolen without so much as a by-your-leave from the classic novel Fahrenheit 451, by the great Ray Bradbury. A few million Americans of a certain age (and I am one) got their introductions to excellence in science fiction, and also excellence in writing English regardless of subject, from Ray Bradbury. A dark vision of the future, in which the government suppresses and destroys knowledge, appears in...
