Mikey’s Flock
by Lee

Some retarded Michael Moore fan who goes by the AOL screen name of Skwiglez emailed me the following drivel a little while ago.  I feel a fisking is in order.

ok i just posted a huge hate mail against your site in caps.. it was a little stupid but hey someones gotta do it and mm himself really doesnt care.

As we will see below, the girl writing this is a young college student.  I find it quite sad that someone of her age cannot use fundamental grammar, sentence structure, or punctuation.  I also find it telling that someone of her limited intelligence, abilities, or powers of logic and deductive reasoning is also a die-hard Michael Moore fan.  Now, for those of you who have not read her comments on MOOREWATCH, here is what she left on the site.

YOU PEOPLE ARE A JOKE.. THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE CAME LAST NIGHT TO HEAR MICHAEL MOORE SPEAK AT MSU.. AND THOUSANDS WERE REJECTED BECAUSE THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH ROOM.. YOU CAN SAY ALL THIS CRAP YOU WANT.. YOU CAN TRY TO BE ASSHOLES. AND LIVE IN A COUNTRY WHERE EVERYONE IS FIGHTING AND YOU CAN ALL DIE HAPPY OF HEART ATTACKS AND BRAIN TUMORS AND WHATEVER ELSE IS CAUSED BY GREAT STRESS. BECAUSE MICHAEL MOORE IS HERE TO STAY.. AND WHEN YOU HAVE A SHIT PRESIDENT LIKE GEORGE W. BUSH IT MAKES IT EVEN EASIER FOR HIM TO GET LIFE TIME FOLLOWERS. SO GET OVER IT.. MICHAEL MOORE IS A GREAT MAN.. HE DOESNT HATE, HE APPRECIATES EVERYTHING THAT YOU HATERS SAY.. HE READS ALL OF HIS HATE MAIL AT HIS LECTURES AND THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE LAUGH AT YOU… ALL HE SAYS IS GOOD FOR THEM AND I LOVE HATE MAIL.. HE HAS THEM SEPERATED INTO TWO FOLDERS DEATH THREATS AND JUST HATE.. YOU PEOPLE CAN STAND PROUD WITH YOUR LIES AND YOU CAN BE HAPPY THAT ALL OF THESE RIDICULOUS PEOPLE ON THE NEWS LOVE YOU.. YOUR ALL JUST SHEEP. SOO ALL I WOULD LIKE TO SAY IS KEEP ON BAAAING BECAUSE IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE.

Yes, my friends, this is the future generation.  When we’re all in retirement homes it is morons like this girl who will be running the world.  Absolutely horrifying, isn’t it?

so i am a fan. ok and you are a hater. I love and you hate.

For those of you who are over the age of 23 and/or don’t listen to shit like 50 Cent and Limp Bizkit, a “hater” is defined as “A person who feels anger and/or jealousy for someone who has succeeded in something they have worked hard for; A being who speaks badly,and/or takes negative actions in attempt to create problems for a successful person.” An alternate spelling, in the contemporary youth vernacular, is “h8r,” and it astounds me that this twit, with her text message-addled brain, somehow generated the mental acumen necessary to refrain from using this abbreviated version. 

At any rate, anyone who dares to criticize someone else is considered a “hater,” in the sense that I am simply jealous of Michael Moore and therefore any and all differences I have with him are irrational and based solely on green-eyed envy.  The true irony here is that, of all my differences with Michael Moore, the one thing I don’t begrudge him is his success.  America is a free market economy, and he has identified a need in the marketplace.  He’s made himself a whole dump truck full of cash doing so, and more power to him.  My only issue with him in this regard is his rampant insistence that he is still a working-class guy, despite charging $38,000 for a college speaking engagement, throwing a fit in London for making “only” $750 a night for his one-man show, and living right off Park Avenue with all the other gazillionaire leftists. 

But as far as him making money and being a success, hey, power to him.  I’m a lover of capitalism, and I’d love to be able to make his kind of money and have his kind of success.  But the fact that I fundamentally disagree with just about everything Moore stands for does not provide evidence that I “hate” (or “h8") him, it simply means that I disagree with just about everything he stands for, and since the media in this country give him a free pass every time he is interviewed it is up to sites like MOOREWATCH to try and point out his lies and the monumental holes in his arguments. 

Besides, I love the free market and capitalism.  Moore uses that very free market to make himself multiple millions of dollars, then decries that very system in his books and films so that nobody else can follow in his footsteps.  He’s the very personification of the American dream, yet he convinces his mush-brained followers that it is impossible for the average guy to make it in America.  “You are never going to be rich” he writes.  “The chance of that happening is about one in a million.” In a nation of roughly 300 million people, Moore would have you believe that there are only 300 millionaires.  I would be willing to bet that there are 300 millionaires living within ten square miles of my apartment.  In actuality there are, according to this study, 2,100,000 millionaires in America.  So, once again, Moore’s lies and exaggerations completely twist and distort the truth, and mindless left-wing idiots like this girl believe it without a second thought—or a first.
