Moore Gets An Earful

Michael Moore has finally pissed off the wrong people. He has riled the ire of the Mother of a slain US Marine. Here's the link to the article. I must give a hat tip to Let's Try Freedom for the original link.

I think it's great that someone finally spoke out against Moore's blatant use of our military dead for his own gain. Moore has no compassion for these families that have bled for America; he only uses them to advance his deranged view of America. This man openly calls Americans stupid and debases our morals while feeding us a steady stream of lies in his "documentaries"; I applaud the left in their embracing of Moore. You have signaled the Death Knell of the Democratic Party. Rock on you Moorons. Later.............

You know. If we pull out or lose this war like we did in Vietnam, those soldiers will have died for nothing. That is the shame Moore is talking about..... I am willing to die for this country, but only if it means something. Are you ready to fight a war that might not mean anything?

So Michael Moore is wrong to list the names of the people who died in Irag, but it's okay for G.W. to use the war to help him get re-elected? Sounds like a double standard to me.

Moved from Arizona (which has nothing to do with AZ of course, except maybe my ex boyfriend in AZ is a rabid Moore fan, which might explain the ex part) last summer. I love your blog and I miss AZ dreadfully. Ellie

I only wish it was the death knell of the Dems... but somehow I don't think we'll get that lucky. Then again, that could be because I live in Calipornia.

Pissed off the wrong people? Give me a break. I understand this woman is upset and needs to find meaning in her son's death but he did not die for Americans' freedom of speech or any other right. He died fighting in a poorly planned and executed unnecessary war to dethrone a thug that was absolutely no threat the US. At best, he was fighting for the rights of Iraqis. I'm *sure* that is what he signed up for. Right? The sad part is he offered his life to a system he believed in and that system betrayed him. I guess being pissed off at Michael Moore rather than the Bush administration let's his mom and people like her sleep at night. It doesn't make them right and it doesn't make him a hero; just a tragedy.

A commenter above echoed my own thoughts, its okay for George Bush to use the dead for his political gains but not okay for Moore to use them to get his message across?

Is that because Bush was the one that sent them to die, that makes it okay to exploit their memories?

Don't get me wrong, I don't like Michael Moore, I think he's an incredibly self serving manipulative jerk but I will defend his right to make his movies. He has every right to do so, just as the GOP had every right to respond with Fahrenhype 9/11. Alot of what he says in F911 is incendiary in nature but not false. He skews facts to suit his needs but I've seen very little to actually attack the substance of what he says, just how he says it.

By the way, the people who post comments anonymously? Yeah, they probably don't feel like signing up with blogger to get an account to be able to use their regular names. Maybe give a look into Haloscan for comments that don't require registration first.

I think Michael Moore has the right idea, he just needs to set aside his anger and think things through. I do believe that reading the names of people who died in Iraq makes this "war" more personal for those who don't know anyone involved or have become desensitized. It doesn't matter who creats the list - that person will be a hero to those who support him and is considered capitalizing on the dead by those who don't. I'm not sure if this type of issue can be agreed upon.
