9/11 shows the depravity of the Left…
[Chuck DeVore] 7/9/04
Unlike some of my fellow conservatives, I believe Michael Moore
and Fahrenheit 9/11 benefits the cause of truth and ultimately
reinforces our success in winning the global war on Islamofascism.
True, many Americans
have seen the propaganda piece – as
of July 6, Fahrenheit 9/11 had box office receipts of almost
$64 million, meaning about ten million people have seen the movie
(well, maybe a bit less, as Democrat Senators Barbara Boxer and
Tom Daschle probably watch Fahrenheit every night).
Also true that our
enemies in the Middle East, such as Hezbollah, think Moore’s “art” is
just the kind of Hollywood cultural imperialism that they can
embrace, if not love.
have also embraced Fahrenheit. Just yesterday, Mr. Kerry was
heard in a stump speech making an obvious reference
to one of Mr. Moore’s Fahrenheit claims, referring to President
Bush’s “vacations” before 9-11 (we now know
the “vacation” time included weekends at Camp David
and meetings with foreign leaders at the ranch in Texas – presumably
not the same foreign leaders who told Mr. Kerry they wanted him

media are generally liberal and enemies of President Bush and
war effort are rallying and shrieking about,
the truth eventually shines through. Even TIME felt
compelled to refute three of Moore’s more obvious Fahrenheit
whoppers in a sidebar to
their cover story.
In fact, the more
Moore’s mores are exposed, the better.
When Senators Kerry, Edwards, Boxer and Daschle endorse Fahrenheit
9/11, they are tying themselves to the man who made it, who won’t
shut-up, and who says the damnedest things.
The New Yorker reported on
a speech Mr. Moore gave in England during which he said, “Who's
the beneficiary of this war? Halliburton. . . . Has anyone
The voices in the
crowd shouted out “Israel!”
Moore continued, “It’s all part of the same ball
of wax, right? The oil companies, Israel, Halliburton. I would
just like to make a modest proposal: from now on, for every Brit
or American kid that's killed in this war, I would like Halliburton
to slay one mid-level executive.” The audience applauded
Mr. Moore’s vast conspiracy theory linking Big Oil and
Israel is in the same league as David Duke, the KKK, and the
Protocols of the Elders of Zion. This is the same sort of hateful
claptrap from which pogroms and holocausts are built – and
the Democrats want to be associated with this?
John Kerry, John Edwards,
and the Democrat Party have a serious Moore’s mores problem.
Either Michael Moore and his hateful brand of lying vitriol
will destroy the Democrats, or, responsible
Democrat leaders will rise up and repudiate Mr. Moore (where
are you Sen. Lieberman?).CRO
