He’s All Class

Michael Moore recently gave a talk in Davis, CA, as part of the ongoing promotional blitz for his latest book.  The local Davis paper covered the event, writing the type of fawning puff-piece that is all too common in Mikey’s media coverage.  One of the audience members wrote a letter to the editor regarding the article.  The paper printed the letter today’s edition, and the author forwarded the text of the letter to me.  It doesn’t appear to be linked on the website anywhere, so I have printed it below.

I was looking forward to reading the Enterprise’s review of Michael Moore’s lecture after I attended the event Monday evening.

While Sharon Stello recounted a number of Moore’s humorous anecdotes, she failed to mention the peals of laughter following Moore’s joke about the fires in Southern California being a result of God getting even with California for electing Arnold Schwarzenegger as Governor.  Maybe it was because there were only a few nervous giggles and I’m sure even those were later regretted.

It was bad enough that he said it, albeit as a joke, but then not to apologize or even recognize the loss and suffering of thousands of innocent people, is unconscionable.  Everyone in California is going to end up paying for this disaster either directly or indirectly and Michael Moore saw fit to make it the butt of a joke.  Shame on him!

I doubt seriously that Bill O’Reilly or Rush Limbaugh, who were frequent targets of Moore’s taunts, would have been treated as kindly if they made the same comments.

I hope Moore was just having a bad night because if the two hours of “stream of consciousness” rambling was the best he has to offer, it left a lot to be desired.

So, the fires in Southern California, which have so far claimed at least 17 lives, are God’s wrath for electing Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Delightful.  Mike can now join Jerry Falwell in the group of blinkered asshats who interpret the actions of the Almighty to advance their agenda. Such a delightful, compassionate man, Michael Moore. He really cares about the average person.

There’s one other point I’d like to address here.  In the article quoted above Mike spewed the following idiocy.

Moore said politicians can manipulate voters because we grow up in a system of “enforced ignorance” in the United States.

“Everything is about trying to keep us as stupid as possible,” he said. “If you don’t know what’s going on, you won’t rise up, will you?”

Moore cited a National Geographic poll of American 18- to 25-year-olds. Eighty-five percent couldn’t find the country of Iraq on a map, 60 percent couldn’t find Great Britain and 11 percent couldn’t point out the United States.

“That’s how the Bush administration has gotten away with what it’s done—fear and lies and an ignorant nation,” Moore said.

Somehow, in Mike’s delusional mind, George Bush is responsible for the ignorance of Americans who were at least 15 years old when he took office three years ago.  Let us not forget that the entire education system in this country is dominated by the liberals Mike supports and the unions that Mike loves.  Let us also not forget that the United States spends more money per student on education than any other nation on earth.  So, if students in this country are graduating from high school and college wholly ignorant of the world around them, it has nothing to do with Bush and everything with Mikey and his leftist ilk.
