You Should Read Every Word They Write:
Tuesday, June 29, 2004Of course, you've heard Michael Moore has a new movie out. Apparently it's critical of President Bush and U.S. foreign policy. (As you can tell, I haven't seen it and I don't plan to give any of my hard-earned money to Moore.) David Brooks, in his column today, gives us some insight into Michael Moore's worldview. He (Moore) doesn't think much of the average American,
"They are possibly the dumbest people on the planet ... in thrall to conniving, thieving smug [pieces of the human anatomy]," Moore intoned. "We Americans suffer from an enforced ignorance. We don't know about anything that's happening outside our country. Our stupidity is embarrassing."American foreign policy has produced a long list of suffering peoples, mostly for the purpose of getting more oil,
"You're stuck with being connected to this country of mine, which is known for bringing sadness and misery to places around the globe." In Liverpool, he paused to contemplate the epicenters of evil in the modern world: "It's all part of the same ball of wax, right? The oil companies, Israel, Halliburton."(Somebody's going to be very angry because President Bush just turned over the control of Iraqi oil to Iraq! What was he thinking?)
And the American economic system (the kind of system where a guy can make movies full of holes, halftruths, and lies - and become rich), well, it stinks,
"Don't go the American way when it comes to economics, jobs and services for the poor and immigrants. It is the wrong way."That's why those immigrants are coming to America - they're not treated poorly enough in their own country, they want to be treated worse here.
As I said, I won't be paying to see Moore's new movie. But I will be paying to see Michael Wilson's new movie, Michael Moore Hates America. Now that has a ring of truth to it.
