Where is Michael Moore when terrorism needs him to defend them?

    Come to Boston  Michael , see if you can't defend these acts of terror , or maybe even blame them on George Bush ,  perhaps its all just a government conspiracy ? I can't wait to read the conspiracy theories next !  They have already begun !

      There are too many ignorant people wandering around... and so the conspiracy theories begin! I've already been defending the notion to more than one idiot!

      This one looks to be Reagan's fault, he armed and trained the Chechnyan rebels in an attempt to destabilize the USSR and then the CIA helped put down their insurrection after the USSR collapsed, not conspiracy theory btw admitted and official fact. These men were probably trained by Americans or their affiliates.

        Oh yeah its Reagan's fault, man, you can dig deep to not blame Muslims.

          I'm with you... I'm voting for the Muslim theory.

          Don't get me wrong the individual Muslims involved are responsible as is Reagan for being involved. Muslims in general as a quarter of the world's population are obviously not responsible as they did nothing wrong.

            Your theories on the innocence of Muslims is cute, just not very realistic.

              Just factual nothing less nothing more, if all of the one quarter of the worlds population were terrorists, hell even if a quarter of them were there would be complete annihilation for their enemies so obviously most Muslims are innocent, they like every other group have idiots with vile intentions.

      Moore is probably sitting in his big mansion eating Cheetos.   Hiding like the coward he is.

        He probably is eating the Cheetos, but I'm guessing he's working on a script, there's conspiracies to be had... and he's the man for the job :-)

          There are plenty of conspiracy theorists these days.
          Moore was/is something of a pioneer.
          But he's hardly the only one.

          And let's not forget Al Gore!

          And those are just on the liberal side of the issues.
          There is simply no one to compare with Alex Jones. He holds the title of #1 right wing instigator!

            I can't stand the conspiracies that suggest all of these recent tragedies and innocent deaths are "staged" or some other conspiracy, but I have to admit, Moore has had some intersting documentaries and I'd like to think I'm not a gullable schmuck ;-)

    I hope he is busy learning about this latest event.  Maybe planning a new film about the successes of the wars on terror.

    His Fahrenheit 9/11 was fascinating.  The hijackers from Saudi, the funding of Osama by the CIA - a better plot than a lot of Hollywood standard fare.

      Bowling for Columbine was actually not bad. Moore is probably like the media though; it's all how you spin the info.

        Mark Ewbieposted 4 years ago in reply to this

        I agree about spinning.  That's why people should check everything they can. No one tells the single truth.

    I was sickened by the way that he personaly attacked Chareton Heston at his own home  in -Columbine ? ! I mean what kind of activist  personally blames one person for a cultural meltdown ? Being a sportsman , I was not impressed by the NRA's marketing tactics in the eighties and nineties ,I'm not a member now nor have I been for years  , but Moores tactics and blind conspiracy is nothing but a blantant failure  in bad journalism .

      Moore spins from his side against the mass spinning ranks of the mainstream media.  It offers us some sort of balance.

      It was unfair to goad an old man in his home but he needed the scene so he went for it.

      Worse crimes against people are committed daily by the mainstream media camped out on victims doorsteps.

        And yet he wasn;t camped out was he , he sat in the living room of a great actor  and P.R. figurehead !

      That was rough... and particularly uncomfortable to watch; he's definitely over the top! I think he used Heston as an example and honestly, it wasn't fair he was targeted because of his Hollywood status. But, at the same time, when you're in the spotlight you're going to be under more scrutiny and you better be sure when you are so vocal about an issue, you're willing to hear the "antis" speaking up and out.

      Hello Horse,Do you mean Charlton Heston , Hollywood star ....?

  4. ahorseback profile image47
    ahorsebackposted 4 years ago

    Moore , invited into the home of Heston , he had no right to act like a manor-less child !  Of course we need to see through to each side of the issues , but with some sense of moral and ethical civility !   He just happens to have none !

      I agree, I admit it was painful to watch that part. Actually, I thought Moore was doing a relatively good job at pointing out some great points and that moment just turned me off.

      Ever heard that sponsoring terrorists is bad? Whenever we do it comes back to bite us just as it did with the Taliban and even Al-Qaida

    The enemy of my enemy is my friend ,, and as with all friends or enemies . If you don't recognize either an enemy or a friend  , you are decieving yourself !  An old cowboy once said , shaking his head  " your problem is you don't hate who you're fighting against and you don't love who you're fighting with !.

      Yeah I am just not dumb enough to think terrorists are our friends, Reagan was though since he armed and trained them and lo and behold here they are same story with the Taliban, the helicopters being shot down over Afghanistan with our soldiers in them are being shot down by stinger missiles Reagan gave the Taliban because they were our "friends".

      Excellent work.

        They turned even though  they were given the tools to defeat the Communist threat.

        I think the Regan round table saw this one. It was better to befriend the Taliban than the Athiest Commies any day.

    That was simply the end of supporting anti-communistic states ..  Reagan simply understoood the 'after the sixties America "  , he knew things you and I will only appreciate in the future ! Dis -Reagan and you diss -true  intelligence !

      Reagan did good things no doubt but his policies have spelled the deaths of thousands of Americans by arming and training Islamic radicals, it is dumb to presume we can control radicals, we can't and the results are what you see.
