Just Say “No” To Michael Moore

Hold on. I'm about to start a shit storm here.

According to The Hill, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) could ban ads for Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" after July 30. I believe they would be perfectly correct in doing so. Wait a minute .... I already hear the Moonbat Democrats howling from the rooftops that this is censorship. Wrong! It's the law.

The McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Law prohibits corporate-funded ads that identify a federal candidate before a primary or general election. This part of the law was intended to restrict large corporations from freely giving their support to a political candidate without going through the process of donating money to a party or candidate, which is also controlled by the law. The whole law is intended to level the playing field and keep election advertising fair.

Is Moore's movie "advertising"? You bet. He makes no bones about the fact that he intends to impact this political election. So he has thrown together this muckadoo film that is partly fact and partly fiction with one purpose in mind: to defeat George W. Bush. He releases it the summer before the election in order to sway your vote. Plain and simple. Not to mention the fact that his ego gets a huge stroking and he stands to make a lot of money. It's advertising for his agenda.

What is advertising? It is simply a method of subtly controlling people's emotions through images and sound to influence them to buy a product. You know what I'm referring to. You are saturated with ads that try to scare you into thinking that your penis is too small or not hard enough, your vagina stinks, you car is not fancy enough, you don't have enough credit cards, your cat or dog is suffering malnutrition .... and the list goes on and on. Fear is the name of the game and they're playing on your emotions. It doesn't matter if you and your wife have sex twelve times a week, you still need viagra. Bullshit.

Fear and bullshit. Is that any way to help people decide who should lead the Free World? Not on your life.

Moore's movie and several others coming out this summer are just that - fear and bullshit, wrapped up as a "documentary" to influence your vote. It's bad enough that Moore is releasing his movie to influence your vote but I for one do not want to have to endure a constant barrage of ads for the movie.

The McCain-Feingold Law was passed in a bipartisan effort to clear the air during an election. All of these outside-sponsored fear/bullshit ads have to stop 60 days before the election. Sixty days is not long but it is something all voters need in order to allow them to step back, examine the candidates rationally, go over each party's positions and listen to the candidates debate. Sixty days to allow our emotions to rest and let us logically make up our minds who to vote for. Is that too much to ask for? Michael Moore and a few other Hollywood fucktards don't think you should be allowed to make a rational decision based on facts. They want to diddle with your emotions.

They tell you the war is going badly. According to the majority of our troops over in "the sandbox" things are getting better every day. Insurgents are being taken out and the handover to an interim Iraqi government is coming up next week.

They tell you the economy is trashed. According to government figures and corporate hiring records, the economy is booming, the stock market is at all time highs, interest rates are still low and the GDP is growing.

They tell you "Bush lied". They tell you the Patriot Act is an invasion of privacy. They tell you prisoners of war are being beaten and tortured. They tell you "Bush is Hitler". I'm surprised they haven't told us yet that "Bush is the Anti-Christ".

Does anyone out there remember the 1992 election? All we heard about was the "homeless" and how cruel the Republicans under Reagan and Bush, Sr. were. Hollywood went berserk, started "Comic Relief" to help all these poor "homeless" people that evil Republicans created. Does anyone know what happened to these "homeless" people? They seem to have disappeared after Clinton was elected. I wonder where they went to?

Gloom. Doom. Fear. Hatred. Anger. Lies. Bullshit. That is what they're selling. And they want you to buy it.

Just say "NO".

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
