Well let's see, in Hitler's early days, he was a low ranking officer in the army and an aspiring artist - can't say there's anything bad about that?
Hey Germany, you can have Michael Moore if you want. We're all done with him over here.
Great site, guys, go in what you doing. I'm German,(this is why I can't speak English ;)) and I believe, Moore makes my country mad. But please don't be so angry with us, there a lot of stupid people here, but not all are bad. The newspapers are against him, and the clever people, too
Whenever people start doing the Bush-Hitler shtick, it's just a one-upmanship, where you have people clamoring for the bigger insult. It is a competition of sorts, where, instead of saying how hard your childhood was, its how much you hate Bush, or who can say make the wildest claim about Bush.
Now - I am not a huge advocate for Moore and I agree with your sentiments that his doctrine should not be taken as gospel. However I only need to read a tiny bit into your site "WE HAVE GUNS, YOU IDIOT. STOP TRYING TO TAKE THEM FROM US, OR WE'LL FEED YOUR LYING, GUN-GRABBING ASS TO THE BUSH-STAPO YOU SAY IS COMING THE FIRST CHANCE WE GET." to realise that no one is going to take you seriously. I am afraid that with talk like that you are going to be labelled by many as "another crazy American". This is a shame because I think that a serious look into Moore is needed, I think he does need to be challenged, but with your kind of talk you are only going to drum up more support for him. I think his main point in Columbine was that Americans have an attitude problem - well, go figure.
Incidentially, your English isn't that bad; I doubt I could speak German coherently enough to ask where the bathroom is :)
Isn't it nice how this site's detractors now feel obligated to include the caveats:
Craig, I am not in any way trying to detract from this site, I am contributing, offering my ideas and seeing what you think. I do think that Moore followers can be every bit as brainless as his "Stupid White Men" that he opposes. This is what gets to me.
Ja Mondrag, deinen Englisch ist sehr gut für einen Deuschlander..
I can take some solace in the fact that a 1939 production of Shakespeare's "Henry V" was booed-off the stage of a London theatre, because the populace thought that it glorified war. This happened at roughly the same time that their Prime Minister (Neville Chamberlain)returned from Munich and was waving a piece of paper for the cameras and declaring "Peace in our time". It seems like the British (and American) populations contain a certain ilk which clings to a flawed concept of "peace" based on worthless treaties signed by the lying stooges of tyrants. The Gulf war ceasefire agreement was violated almost as quickly as the Munich agreement.
"It has become cool to agree with him..."
craig, stubborn, simplifying, generalizing king of the universe
I didnt think this site could get any more lame, sad, and stupid. I was apparently wrong.
"I didn't think that this site could get any more lame, sad, and stupid..."
Sounds like it might be the same person. Anyhow, I only have one thing to add and that is that Craig forgot to mention that Josef Mengele was a decorated war hero before he became the murderous doctor of the Nazis.
Hey hithere, isn't there some communist propaganda you should be reading right now? I'm sure that coming onto this site hjust to insult everyone is cutting into your important political BS reading sessions.
Criag, in response I totally agree that Moore is guilty of simplifying and sensationalising a very complex and involved topic. This is the very thing about him that I dislike. He is as bad as any tabloid newspaper and hence they sympathise with him greatly.
hm, i didnt know that being smart enough to realize how lame and stupid this site is qualified me a commie. you guys are just so sad.
Troll alert Troll alert!
Oh shoot! Forgot to mention that Michael Moore has bigger boobs than Britney Spheres. Although I would rather look at Britney's sweater mittens than Mikes big hairy manboobs.
Wrong mr. Moore!! Finland is a part of Scandinavia already.
Hithere, the reason why lefties don't like sites like this is indicative of a greater problem affecting many liberals - they don't like the fact that conservatives are starting to do the same thing that they have been doing for the past 40 years, making fun of authority figures.
thomz - what reason did Moore give for wanting Denmark expelled from Scandinavia? What I know about Denmark gives me more respect for it than, say, Sweden. Moore's attitude just might raise your nation in my esteem even more.
Agreed entirely Thomz, his research and "factual evidence" have more holes than Moore's fishnet stockings (Yes, he's a crossdresser... satire, remember?).
[QU0TE]Oh shoot! Forgot to mention that Michael Moore has bigger boobs than Britney Spheres. Although I would rather look at Britney's sweater mittens than Mikes big hairy manboobs.
"Hey Mikey, wanna know the number one reason Bush could never pull off what Hitler pulled off, you fucking moron?
You can label me a detractor, but certainly not a fan of anything except logic. So please dont assume anything of people who have criticisms, this site if any should understand the need to critisise. If everytime someone has a critism of anyone but Moore is immedietly condesented towards then it only demonstrates the bias nature of this site. This site shouldnt be about being Anti-Moore... he has the right to say what he wants... Idealy this site becomes a place to critise Moore - not attack.
Actually, I agree with craig. The Michael Moore Train is displaying its vacidity as plainly as a rainy day.
If you have a contrary example, post it. If not, then don't be a troll through insinuations.
Mehitchcock, I'm gonna have to disagree.
(Sort of off topic for which I apologise) but there is nothing wrong with satire
Cheering throngs of Germans, incoherent works of literature, and unpleasant to look at. Slick the hair back, come up with your own salute, and you're good to go, Michael.

Craig: Good point. I remember an old book written about the number of deaths communism had caused in the 20th century. People criticized it for failing to look at the number of people capitalism killed. But no one ever said the same (look at the number the Soviets killed) when looking at the numbers killed by the Nazis. But this is bull, and everyone knows it. The things that happened in Bulgaria and Denmark don't make the occurences of the Warsaw Ghetto any less instructive in terms of the effects of armed citizens in fighting dictators.
