Oh, to Have Michael Moore's Address...

I don't think I'll be ordering, mainly because I'm saving up for car parts, but I sure do think Star Spangled Ice Cream is a clever site. I especially like the graphic for the "Nutty Environmentalist" flavor!

Thank you for how you think and what you say. I have admired you since "roger and me". Stupid White Men is incredible, Bowling for Columbine, I don't know the words to describe how that film crystallized my understanding of our people. Your statement at the Oscars - how are you going to top that? But you will and I love you for it. Keep on truckin. The world is a better place because of the way you live your life.

Dear Mr. Moore,

Just wanted to write & congratulate you on your award and very brave
acceptance speech...every word of it true (unfortunately). Since the
day Bush got "elected" I knew he would get us involved in a war...just
didn't plan on a CIVIL one! Let's pray this mess is over soon. I
commend you for your's a shame that so many people who are
ordinarily outspoken were afraid to clap. Seems like our freedom of
speech is being taken away. Thank you for publicly noting that "the
emperor wears no clothes".

Best Wishes,

Mr. Moore

Ficticious huh? Is the fact that 4 U.S. passenger planes were highjacked on September 11th ficticious? Is the fact that Chemical Ali (one of Sadaams top leuitenants) used chemical weapons on 100's of thousands of Kurds in Northern Iraq ficticious? Is the fact that Sadaam and his Generals make it common practice to rape women and little girls ficticous? Is the fact that Sadaam would have your head cut off for saying what you said ficticious? I dont think so. I live in the real world where Sadamm is a threat to us and everyone around us. My friend I believe that people in Hollywood live in a ficticious world. You cant possibly believe that the life you live and other stars live is normal! I applaud President Bush for not sitting around and waiting for another wave of attacks on U.S. soil. Dennis Miller brings up a good point. Do you think that Sadaam and Usama will go to the U.N. next time they attack us? Sadaam is the enemy...Not President Bush!

You have every right to voice your opinion but there is definitely a time and a place. Amongst your friends, not in front of me.

While Tom Brokaw likens this military belligerence to WW II, I seem to remember Vietnam. The U.S. "war" against Iraq is paramount to this grandmother getting into the ring with Mike Tyson and calling it a "match." Thank you for representing us against a "President" who represents his oil, arms dealer, and corporate constituents while I can only depend upon a documentary film-maker to speak for me.

I was disheartened when I READ you had been cheered and booed at the awards. What a revelation, when I HEARD the actual tape of your speech and learned that the cheering was only at the beginning, before everyone realized what a weasely, self-aggrandizing stunt you were getting ready to pull ... and that the booing was maintained throughout the remainder of your speech!! It was surprising and thrilling. I know it is gnawing at you, too ... you didn't expect it either, did you, hero?

Posted by: Maggie on March 25, 2003 02:51 AM

Hooray for free speech!

I've always liked Michael Moore; he and his ideas are usually quite shallow and simplistic (even when I agreed with the view he championed, which was most of the time), and he says what he thinks, just as he did at the Oscars. He's a very likable buffoon.

But I was incredibly grateful for our right to free speech, ESPECIALLY as yielded by all the intelligent and thoughtful people loudly booing Moore's ignorant, fatuous and brain-dead rant! How I wished I was there to boo along with them!

Hooray for free speech!

Posted by: Martin on March 25, 2003 07:55 AM

Michael Moore consider your self banned from America. Get your stuff and hop on a plane to Bagdad. Join their people and you will soon realize that oppression and tyrany are the intrinsic evils this country prides itself in being absolved from. Freedom is a wonderful thing isn't you simple ugly mother f**ker. And with out those freedoms Bush is trying to protect your movies wouldn't mean crap.

Posted by: Ed on March 25, 2003 08:17 AM

While I appreciate the comments, many of you do not seem to understand I was making a sarcastic joke. Please note that my attitude toward's Moore tracks directly with this person's, as this article quite clearly attests

Posted by: scott on March 25, 2003 10:46 AM

Michael, Thank you for having the courage to express what thousands of other Americans also believe. We must all remember that one of our country's greatest rights is that of freedom of speech. Thanks for remaining true to your convictions. Peace.

What an unbelievable mound of dreck. He should read this:
Office of the State Auditor State of Alabama

Stand Up For America

I’m here tonight because men and women of the United States military have given their lives for my freedom. I am not here tonight because Sheryl Crowe, Rosie O’Donnell, Jane Fonda or Phil Donahue, sacrificed their lives for me.

If my memory serves me correctly, it was not movie stars or musicians, but the United States Military who fought on the shores of Iwo Jima, the jungles of Vietnam, and the beaches of Normandy.

Tonight, I say we should support the President of the United States and the U.S. military and tell the liberal, tree hugging, hippy, Birkenstock wearing, tie-dyed liberals to go make their movies and music and whine somewhere else.

After all, if they lived in Iraq, they wouldn’t be allowed the freedom of speech they’re being given here today - - ironically, they would be put to death at the hands of Sadam Husssein or Osama Bin Laden.

I want to know how the very people who are against war because of the loss of life, can possibly be the same people who are for abortion?

They are the same people who are for animal rights but against the rights of the unborn.

The movie stars say they want to go to Iraq and serve as human shields for the Iraqis, I say let them buy a one-way ticket and go.

No one likes war, I hate war. But the one thing I hate more is the fact that this country has been forced into war—innocent people have lost their lives - - and there but for the grace of God, it could have been my brother, my husband, or even worse my own son.

On December 7, 1941, there are no records of movie stars treading the blazing waters of Pearl Harbor.

On September 11, 2001; there are no photos of movie stars standing as human shields against the debris and falling bodies ascending from the World Trade Center. There were only policemen and firemen - -underpaid civil servants who gave their all with nothing expected in return.

When the USS Cole was bombed, there were no movie stars guarding the ship - - where were the human shields then?

If America’s movie stars want to be human shields, let them shield the gang-ridden streets of Los Angeles, or New York City, let them shield the lives of the children of North Birmingham whose mothers lay them down to sleep on the floor each night to shelter them from stray bullets.

If they want to be human shields, I say let them shield the men and women of honesty and integrity who epitomize courage and embody the spirit of freedom by wearing the proud uniforms of the United States Military. Those are the people who have earned and deserve shielding.

Throughout the course of history, this country has remained free, not because of movie stars and liberal activists but because of brave men and women who hated war too - - but lay down their lives so that we all may live in freedom. After all – What greater love hath no man, that he lay down his life for his friend,” but in this case a country.

We should give our military honor and acknowledgement and not let their lives be in vain. If you want to see true human shields, walk through Arlington Cemetery. There lies human shields, heroes, and the BRAVE Americans who didn’t get on television and talk about being a human shields, they were human shields.

I thank God tonight for freedom - - those who bought and paid for it with their lives in the past - - those who will protect it in the present and defend it in the future.

America has remained silent too long. God-fearing people have remained silent too long.

We must lift our voices united in a humble prayer to God for guidance and the strength and courage to sustain us throughout whatever the future may hold.

After the tragic events of Sept. 11th, my then eleven -year-old son said terrorism is a war against us and them and if you’re not one of us, then you’re one of them.

So in closing tonight, let us be of one accord, let us stand proud, and let us be the human shields of prayer, encouragement and support for the President, our troops and their families and our country.

May God bless America, the land of the free, the home of the brave and the greatest country on the face of this earth!

Here, here Beth!

I am an American, damn proud to be one and be here where I'm free.

My saying, "If you don't like it here, LEAVE!"

Posted by: Cindy on March 26, 2003 12:32 AM

Larry, Thanks for this posting from Beth Chapmen, I have read it before but it rings so true. I wear Birkenstocks and I am Pro Choice but I believe with all my heart we should be supporting our military people. I also believe we should stop putting them in additional harm's way by being so politically correct about who and where we target. We are there, we are mortgaging our children's future by being there, so let's get the job done and come home. The people who flew those planes on 9/11/01 gave no thought to protecting civilians, they targeted our civilians. I am not suggesting that we target civilians but neither am I in favor of tying the hands of our military, especially since it seems the Iraqis executed some of the people who were in the group that was captured last week end.

Posted by: Pat on March 26, 2003 03:52 AM

it's a good thing those who have fought for our civil liberties, from the civil war to the civil rights movement, didn't have this attitude of "if you don't like it, leave!"

i hope everyone here remembers that the 9/11 terrorists were not iraqis, they were mainly saudi arabian. iraqis are not threatening us, they are having a hard time even threatening us on their own turf, not to mention here at home. no one should be forced to be a "human shield"-- not even those people in our armed services who volunteered for the job. let's bring them home!

Posted by: alison on March 27, 2003 03:11 AM

By and large, the people who are protesting this war in Iraq either hate Republicans or they feel that no war can be justified.

First, I find it curious that these people who are so full of "love" are so motivated by hate. A Republican in the Oval Office is simply unacceptable to these people. It's further irrational that they did support the last President who had a long record of corruption and womanizing. Imagine how with that rap sheet, if Bill Clinton had been a Republican, how their hate for him would have known no bounds.

I am from Oregon and remember the Bob Packwood scandal very well. He was probably the single most powerful voice in the Senate for women's rights. He was more liberal than Daschle or Byrd. But, he was a Republican and the Left went after him with both barrels.

Secondly, what do you say to those that oppose all war? I suspect that these people didn't do too well in college history courses. I don't know how you could look at the historical record and not see that frequently, there are excellent reasons for going to war.

So why are we in this war? I wish I had a nickel for every time someone said after 9/11/01, "Why didn't we do something to stop this?" Our government has reason to believe that this action will save us from asking that in the future. That should be good enough for all of us.

Posted by: ron on March 27, 2003 09:01 AM

Dear Mr. Moore,
I am writing to tell you of my disappointment in your recent opinions and opposition of the war in Iraq at the Academy Awards in March. In this country we are so privilaged to have the freedom of speech, and I fully grant that right to you. However, it is not that which I am upset about. What message do you fell you are giving our troops when you protest our President's decisions on TV? For those troops that are watching you on TV, you are nothing but a message of discouragement and an embarrassment to our country. Until I see you on the television in full armor protecting your own freedoms, I suggest you find it somewhere in your heart to support the troops. They are over there fighting and giving their lives to protect every citizens' freedoms. And on top of that they are doing it willingly. God bless our troops and our country!

Hello Mr. Moore,

About three weeks ago you were not on my mind for telling the facts at a dinner party but now after hearing and reading some of your book you are all I quote from. Let me explain I am a 23 year old black female from Winston-Salem that has had that middle class lifestyle you enjoy writing about. I recently graduated from University of North Carolina at Asheville with a degree in Sociology. So of course when returned up there for my birthday three weeks ago my friend told me about your book. The most interesting part is the thing about hiring black people that is great. So this gets me to my next point, I have a bet going with that same friend that you actually are a man of your words. Therefore, I am doing like you requested and sending my resume to your address. Hopefully you will help me out and win this bet and better more land a great job working in your field of fire. I really hope to hear from you soon and thank you for your time.

Sham, Please let us know when and if you hear from Mr. Moore.

Posted by: Pat on June 12, 2003 07:11 PM

you are the first honest white man i have come across. As a black woman it is my belief that we live in a bullshit world led by a few low and mentally deranged lutanic whose only positive side is their understanding of how stupid the rest of us are and how easlily we sup the shit they feed us. Way to go Michael and lie low. About the day when the final button is pushed and black people cant take any more, sadly it will come despite your warning people wont change its the way of the world, it is experience that teaches wisdom.Peace and lie low dont trust no shadow after dark.

I wish that Michael Moore would research the connection between school and work place shootings with psych drugs like Prozac, Paxil, Ritalin and the rest. Nearly every shooter was on one of them. The above URL has a story on the subject.

Posted by: Deb on June 30, 2003 01:39 PM

I knew a girl named Daisy who liked to eat
Her Cheery O's with sour pork, sweet meat,
And purple Poi from Hawaii.
Finished, filled and drownin'
In sweaty salty droplets, Daisy would wipe
Her face with a red bandana and stuff a pipe
With wild herbs from a friendly island.
The she would spin and twirl round on her highland
Roof, until, too dizy to stand,
She would leap into the billowy sand
And be wisked away by the waves of Carlsbad...

Letter to a friend 30 minutes after seeing the film:
Oh my God!It wasn't that I didn't know,but to have all the dots artfully
connected is really too much emotion to deal with.I am like a powder keg
ready to explode,and if we are all, as Jung suggests part of a collective
unconcious then I feel as though I contributed to the film.You remember that
movie synapsis I sent you,written nearly 25 years ago,written on the eve of
the Mondale Reagan election called "Dark Horse",where a leader rises out of
obscurity that is gut-level obvious a champion of the people,who grapples
with the real powers that control this country,"banking oil,and large
corporations"? Planned to come out on the very eve of the election which for
the first time(have art-truth impact an election),and swing the miniscule
percentage points that separated the candidates into a more human democratic
direction.Sorry,I just wrestle with the idea that I am doing nothing to
further consciousness,while at the same time personally know I couldn't be
more involved,and watching that film was like coming home.Finally somebody
is saying something,finally we have a voice!Last night I wrote a great deal
on the real face of globalization,or "corperatism" in the imagining that
would be what the next blockbuster documentary would be about.It would be so
truly heroic and couragous for Michael Moore to put what ever "ego"(the
ultimate enemy) he has completely aside and invite Arundahati Roy and some
other truly great people to colaborate on a film that would truly stun the
world.Roy not only for her laser beam perception of internationals truth,but
I know without a doubt that she is an amazing artist,that can touch the
heart visually and with words like few equals. love,Robin
