More Hypocrisy By Michael Moore-Updated

Tripping around the web this morning I came across an interesting post a Babalu:

Who is keeping the profits from his films?

"Capitalism is an evil, and you cannot regulate evil," the two-hour movie

"You have to eliminate it and replace it with something
that is good for all people and that something is democracy."

It's so easy to preach socialism/liberalism/progressivism/stupidism/moronism when you are rich. It's so easy to bash the system that provides your own wherewithal, all for the sake of appearing saintly and compassionate.

Folks, these are truly evil bastards we are fighting against...

Moore’s movie, Capitalism: A Love Story is premiering at The Venice Film Festival. From there it will move on to The Toronto Film Festival and then on to openings in New York and Los Angeles. I won’t be attending either of the film festivals or the openings, will you? No.

The attendees will “the beautiful” people. The people who capitalism has been very, very good to. How good has capitalism been to Moore? His net worth is estimated at more the 50 million evil US dollars.

Well, it should be fun. People Magazine will show the actresses in their finery as they wax away on what a powerful movie that Moore has given us, all the time completely unaware that the dress they are wearing (and wouldn’t be caught dead wearing again) cost more than the average family spends in a month or two on all of their expenses combined.

I won’t be seeing Moore’s movie at a festival, opening or otherwise. It strikes me as a movie for hypocritical, unserious, unaware people who apply different standards to “the little people.” They don’t need my money.


Smitty calls Moore a corpulent capitalist. True enough, but I prefer "lard ass."
