Michael Moore -- Why is he hated so much by the right?
A conservative blogger Freethinker has chastized me in comments for saying that Michael Moore is not a hate-monger like Ann Coulter. He is not. I went to watch him talk at a university during his college tour before the election. He did not talk about killing anyone, he did not talk about blowing anything up, he didn't talk about violence in anyway. He talked about how conservatives are crooks and liars and wrong about what they do. He talked about middle class Americans and how they are voting against themselves when they vote republican, because repubs want to line the pockets of themselves, their rich friends and the corporations that give them money. He said young people are dying in a war that has no justification.
There is no way you can put Michael Moore in the catagory of a hate-monger, vitriol spewer like Ann Coulter. She is racist ("that old ARAB, Helen Thomas), hate filled ("[The] backbone of the Democratic Party [is a] typical fat, implacable welfare recipient"), and advocates violence, ("My only regret with Timothy McVeigh, he did not go to the New York Times Building)."
I keep wondering, have any of these people that depise him so much seen any of his documentaries? Roger & Me was all about corporate greed and the middle-class, Bowling for Columbine explored the social issue of why Americans kill each other with guns more than any other country, and fahrenheit 9/11 showed what happens when a "smirking chimp" gets handed the white house by the Supreme Court and why somone with an IQ of 10 shouldn't be running our country. <~~~~ my interpretation not Michael Moore's. (OK that was a little hateful, but I get sick to my stomach when I think about 1500+ beautiful young Americans dying for Bush).
