Michael Moore Hates
America Ohio White People Himself Everything!
Three days in a row now of Anti-Moore blogging. I guess I'm on a bit of a roll. I refuse to mock Kerry too much... partly because doing so seems UnAmerican, and partly because I kinda found myself liking the guy a bit when he gave such a gracious and positive concession speech.
Nonetheless, mocking Michael Moore is the civic duty of anyone who loves this country, and far be it from me to neglect my civic duty.
First of all, I found this decent little article about Mike Wilson, the filmmaker who produced Michael Moore Hates America.
Moore has added a ramble to the front page of his website... it ends with a list of the names of those soldiers who've died in Iraq, and Mike's suggestion that he hopes they'll forgive us for reelecting Dubya. Look, Mike... you know as well as anyone that the majority of those in the military hate you. Yes, you should hope for their forgiveness, but you should hope they forgive you for things you've done to damage their morale... like Fahrenheit 9/11 and like your comment that I quoted in yesterday's post (see Michael Moore's Strange Concession immediately below).
In the course of Mike's ramble, he indicates who he thinks is responsible for the oh so great tragedy of Dubya's reelection: Ohio...
Once again we are reminded that the buckeye is a nut, and not just any old nut -- a poisonous nut. A great nation was felled by a poisonous nut.
Oh, and don't forget the evil that is the Caucasian race:
88% of Bush's support came from white voters. In 50 years, America will no longer have a white majority. Hey, 50 years isn't such a long time! If you're ten years old and reading this, your golden years will be truly golden and you will be well cared for in your old age.
That's right, Mike. The baaaaad old whites are keeping you down. And God knows we whites don't care for our old people in their golden years.
Oh, wait a minute... aren't you white, too, Mike? And American, to boot? Could it be that your hatred of white America is rooted in some deep psychosis; some irrational and seething self loathing? Far be it from me to wade into the troubled psyche of Michael Moore, but the guy really is pretty transparent.
He still has up that mosaic of Bush made up of portraits of soldiers who've died in Iraq... and at Moorewatch I found out that Blogolution has returned the favor by putting up a mosaic of Mikey, made up of pictures of fast food products and defeated Democrat politicians...
I think that's funny.
it's rather like making fun of the down-syndrome kid sitting @ the back of the class: the material is all there, but the circumstances are rather sad, & so why bother?
the key thing to keep in mind, however, is not that m-dog is batty (which he probably is) but rather that he has very shrewdly managed to find a way to exploit, from a commercial standpoint, a whole class of citizenry which is otherwise largely impervious to consumer gambits. which is a fantastically delicious piece of irony, given the guy's rhetoric & his supposed ideals.
