Michael Moore is a Liar

Hello one and hello all. I return. Couple of things I feel I need to talk about today…

First off a very controversial movie comes out this weekend and no I’m not talking about White Chicks. The movie is Fahrenheit 9/11 made by the beloved Michael Moore. I know a lot of you are probably going to go see it and might take away from it things that you probably shouldn’t. I have been extensively following the development of this movie because after seeing Bowling for Columbine and finding out what Mr. Moore had done to prove his point (I.E. Lie, Mislead, Misconstrue) I would only expect him to do the same for his next film but even possibly on a grander scale. I admit that I have not seen the entire movie, nor am I sure I am going to, but there are a few parts and points that he has made that I am 100% aware of and I am 100% aware of the fact that they are lies. What bothers me about this movie is not that it is Anti-Bush or a Michael Moore movie, what bothers me is that it is a movie that tries to pass off biased and politically motivated lies as fact to unsuspecting unfamiliar people. I’d like to examine one of the points Michael Moore makes in this movie. One of Moore’s objectives in this movie is to tie George W. Bush with Osama Bin Laden. His two major points? 1. Bush has ties to the Bin Laden Family through his oil company and 2. Bush secretly flew out members of the Bin Laden family after 9/11. So I hear this ideas and I say to myself, “OK Michael you got my attention prove it to me.” Idea number 1 is presented to me by Moore laying out different members of Bin Laden’s family that work for this oil company and that oil company and how these companies have done business with American oil firms that the Bush family or members of the Bush administration have ties to. It plays out more like a game of 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon then a factual smoking gun that ties the two parties together. Moore also neglects to inform his viewing audience that Bin Laden’s family is GIGANTIC and that it is almost impossible to conduct any kind of business without someone having “ties” to bin Laden in the middle east. Also too Bin Laden is one man. One Evil man. So immediately because he is a terrorist and the most hated man in the world the rest of his family, everyone in the world with the last name of BIN LADEN, is instantly a terrorist and is working to undermine the United States? I have trouble believing that. That EVERY SINGLE PERSON in the GIGANTIC BIN LADEN FAMILY is a terrorist. If you have proof otherwise please show me and the US Government because I am sure they’d like to know. So this leads us to Mr. Moore’s other point that President Bush flew out members of Bin Laden’s family from the US in the days after 9/11. Well this issue is a little easier to tackle. Richard Clarke, the former Terrorism advisor for the Bush administration, has taken full responsibility for this decision. This had nothing to do with the President. It was all Clarke. Again I also point out that Bin Laden’s family is big and granted I just said that not every member of Bin Laden’s family is a terrorist but I am sure they wanted to get out of America just as badly as we wanted to help them get out of America…

So have I debunked Michael Moore? Have I proven beyond a reasonable doubt that his movie is an entire lie? No not by any means. But what I have done is I have shown you that Michael Moore has not given you, the viewers of his movie, the whole truth. He has left out facts and important data so that he can present a twisted perspective to meet his political goals. I ask you to read this article which further details the lies and deception of this movie and gives you the real story of Moore’s movie, all facts in tact. Please Click Here. Also before I end this topic I’d like to use some of Moore’s own medicine on himself. He ties the Bush family to bin Laden through crappy logic well I can tie Michael Moore to Bin Laden just the same way. Michael Moore’s film was originally financed by Disney via Miramax. Disney has received financial backing for various foreign ventures from an organization known as the Carlyle Group. According to Moore, the Carlyle Group is the link between Bush and the Bin Laden family. So by that logic alone wouldn’t that make Michael Moore involved the same way as President Bush to Bin Laden? Just a thought…

So folks if you see Moore’s movie I ask you just to read up and not take his word as gospel because if you do you’ll be misinformed and mislead. Just do your own research after seeing the movie, that’s all I ask. Also check out this site, http://www.moorelies.com/ and this one too, http://www.moorewatch.com/

One movie I have seen this week, in fact I’ve seen it twice already, is Napoleon Dynamite. If you haven’t seen this movie yet or even heard about it all I say to you is go and find a movie theatre playing it and watch it. You’ll have a lot of fun with it. Its really really funny and is better then that piece of crap Dodgeball 100 times over. So just go see it already…Well its time to get ready for another week of work. I am going to Disney World in July (Which links me to Bin Laden right Mr. Moore?) so you can expect a full photographic report on that when I get back. But I am sure you’ll hear from me before that…

Till next time…”FREAKAZOID FREAKAZOID!”
