After watching Fahrenheit 9/11, I came out of the theatre with a lot of mixed feelings. I've been supporting Bush, and the movie makes a lot of pretty serious charges about him. If true, a lot of them are pretty damning. The one that really got me was the arrogant speech Bush was apparently giving at some Fundraising Dinner, where he was apparently speaking to Republicans who were supporting him. "This is an impressive crowd - the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elites; I call you my base." That's one thing I've hated about Bush, the rich daddy's boy, and there he was, flaunting his ivory tower life. In case you wonder how I remember that quote so well- well, I remembered it pretty well, but I was able to cut and paste it from CBSNews.com. This website alerted me to it: www.davekopel.org/Terror/Fiftysix-Deceits-in-Fahrenheit-911.htm and the story itself is here: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2000/10/18/politics/main242210.shtml And what was the venue at which George W. Bush made his rich-boy statement? Was it a Republican fund-raiser? Well, no. GWB, along with Al Gore, during the 2000 campaign, "both joined New York City's political elite at the Alfred E. Smith memorial dinner, a fundraiser for Catholic charities hosted by the Archbishop," according to the CBS News story. "The presidential candidates came well-armed with jokes, often poking fun at themselves." It was supposed to be a joke. It was presented in the movie with absolutely NO CONTEXT whatsoever. What appeared to be arrogant was actually self-deprecating. Do you enjoy having your emotions falsely manipulated? I sure don't. Michael Moore must have known the context. If he had to stoop this low to make his point, doesn't it make you wonder about other points he makes in this movie? Dave Kopel's website outlines quite a few more deceptions. The moral of this is make up your own mind, and don't be swayed by propaganda put out by Michael Moore, who I'm starting to think may be the worst American alive today.
