Fisking MillerThis morning I posted some hate mail from a left wing dunce named Chris Miller. Not content to simply accept the fact he is an idiot, he wrote me three emails during the day. Normally I just ignore people like this, but the little tyke just put so much effort into it I figured, what the hell.
1. I'm glad to see you were a big enough man to actually respond to anything I wrote in my email. Oh wait you didn't say a damn thing. How about using some evidence to argue against what I said instead of running from the truth. Don't you have anything to say for yourself?
I hope I'm not the only one who notices the irony here. Chris, I write two blogs. There are hundreds of posts here on MOOREWATCH, and thousands of posts on Right-Thinking. I have plenty to say, and it's quite easy for you to go to either of my blogs and find out just what I have to say on pretty much any subject you can think of. All the evidence to refute the points in your original email is located right here on this blog. There's a search engine right there on the front page, knock yourself out.
2. You claim anyone with an 8th grade education and google can refute my
arguments well go ahead. Point me in the right direction.
MOOREWATCH.com is a great place to start.
3. Here some facts about gun violence for you to post verbatim on your website.
Gun Violence Statistics
I'm not going to post them here for two reasons. Firstly, they take up a lot of space, and secondly, you simply cut and pasted them from another website. The original can be found here. The fact that you can't make an original argument, and merely regurgitate the facts presented by others, shows that you have no grasp at all of the subject matter. No wonder you accept as gospel every lie propagated by Michael Moore.
The main thrust of the statistics you quote is that in areas with more guns there are more suicides by gun. My response? So fucking what. I'd be willing to bet that in areas with higher rates of automobile ownership there are higher rates of drunk driving. Does it follow then that the cause of drunk driving is automobile ownership? Is the solution to high incidences of drunk driving to regulate the sale of cars?
Okay, I'm in the mood for a good fisking. Let's take a look at your email from this morning.
I'm writing in response to some comments I saw you post on your website MooreWatch.com. In your posting titled "Columbine Secrets" you say "And he[Moore] definitely doesn't want to see fewer school shootings, because then he wouldn't have fresh victims to prostitute for his own monetary gain." What kind of sick person are you?
Sick enough to see through Michael Moore's bullshit.
Moore made the movie Bowling for Columbine in order to stop violence in this country including the sad instances of school shootings. The fact that you would claim that anyone would be a proponent of violence for monetary gain is sickening.
Chris, you're an idiot. You really need to learn a little bit more about your idol before you go making a fool of yourself in public. Moore made BFC because he thought he could make money at it. I don't think he was expecting it to be the kind of blockbuster hit that it was, but the fact remains that if he didn't reasonably expect to make money off it he wouldn't have been able to get funding for it. Now, I believe that Moore gladly prostitues the victims of any tragedy to make money for himself. I'm not the only one. Here's what one of the Columbine mothers had to say.
Recently, a co-worker asked me if I had seen the movie Bowling for Columbine yet, I told her absolutely not! My answer surprised her, given the fact my son, Matthew, was one of the 13 murdered during the deadliest school shooting in our country's history. I explained to her that prior to the public release of the movie the families of the injured and dead were invited by Michael Moore to attend a preview screening. How thoughtful.
Our family and others considered attending because we were genuinely interested in his message to the public regarding gun control and school violence.
However, once we discovered he was going to charge us admission we refrained from doing so.
It's laughable that Moore attempts to portray himself as an anti-establishment liberal who is the voice of the common folk, when in fact he is no better than the greedy capitalists he shuns. Maybe now that he has made millions of dollars off the blood of our children he could toss a DVD or two our way to view.
Michael Moore, the Park Avenue millionaire, charged the Columbine families to see the movie that made him millions of dollars. Now, explain to me, Chris, how this man does not prostitute the memories of the Columbine victims to line his own pockets. That, my friend, is sickening.
The fact of the matter is we do live in a society that is based around fear. Fear of the unknown, fear of minorities, fear of terrorists who may live next door to you so you better not trust anyone other than Big Brother who will protect you.
Here you display clearly your own monumental ignorance. What kind of a culture of fear do we live in, Chris? A country where a fat, unshaven slob gets an Oscar for convincing people that the United States is awash in gun violence? Let's take a look at a few facts here.
Race: If you want to look at crime statistics, Chris, two facts emerge clearly. Most crime in this country is committed by minorities, and most of their crime is directed against other minorities. LAPD officer Jack Dunphy recently discussed this fact in a column last year for National Review.
Consider: As of July 31 of this year there had been 299 murders in the city of Los Angeles. Of the victims, 141 (47 percent) were Hispanic and 134 (45 percent) were black, reflecting a pattern that has remained steady for the last few years. Detectives had identified 158 suspects in these crimes, of whom 69 (44 percent) were Hispanic and 64 (40 percent) were black. There were eight whites (5 percent) identified, as well as 17 (11 percent) of what LAPD record keepers label as "others," primarily Asians and Middle Easterners. Based on what I have observed since July, there is no reason to believe the year-end totals will produce anything but a similar breakdown among both victims and suspects.
So, Chris, if you want to be afraid of someone because of their race, the numbers are on your side. For much greater statistical info, take a look at the Department of Justice's website for victim/offender data broken down by race. (Or, you can believe what Michael Moore tells you.)
TERRORISTS: Chris, every one of the 9/11 hijackers were living next door to someone. There are terrorists living in this country right now. Unless you've been living on fucking Mars for the past few years you would have heard of multiple terrorist cells that have been intercepted and prosecuted by the federal government. We've also shut down major sources of funding for terrorists, sources operating right here in America. So, yes, Chris, despite what your idol says, there are terrorists in this country, and they could be living next door to any one of us. A little vigilance on the part of the public could prevent another 9/11.
If you would like an illustration of this point using one of Mikey's examples, see this post, then this one.
I'm not speaking out against gun ownership either. I personally don't own a gun or ever will, but does that mean others shouldn't do it legally? No. However, you can't ignore the facts that people who have guns in there homes are more likely to commit suicide or violence against someone they know.
Guess what, Chris? I can indeed dispute that. This is known in gun circles as the "43 times fallacy," and it has been debunked numerous times by numerous different people. You can read an excellent refutation of this nonsense at this link. Unfortunately it has been repeated so many times in the media that well-meaning, simplistic dolts such as yourself believe it to be true. It's not.
Anyway, I've ventured from my original point. If you really want to talk about someone using violence for capital gain then why don't you write about our own president. To this date roughly 400 troops have died in armed conflict in Iraq.
The fact that it isn't higher is a testament to the professionalism and skill of the United States Armed Forces.
They're dying off in order to protect George/Dick's oil interests.
Yawn. You're going to have to do better than that, stupid.
The fact is Saddam Hussein however bad he was, did not conspire with Osamma bin Laden or Al Qaida. His secular government in Iraq was against everything bin Laden believed in.
You might want to read this article before you make that claim. (See? It's called thinking for yourself. Funny how that works.)
In fact bin Laden spoke out against Hussein as well calling him an infidel .
(Gasp!) He called him an infidel? Oh, the horror! You really don't know any contemporary world history, do you, Chris? Maybe when you get into high school you'll discuss Word War II. See, in that war the US and British were allied with the USSR, which was at the time headed by Josef Stalin, one of the greatest mass murderers who ever lived. After WWII the West spend 60 years fighting the USSR in the Cold War, but during WWII they were staunch allies against Hitler. So, even enemies can find common ground to come together to fight a greater enemy.
Or what about Bush's relation to the Saudi royal family. A connection he keeps with an extremely oppressive regime also for his own oil interests.
So, you would support an invasion of the Muslim Holy Land? That's brilliant, Chris. It's almost as if someone else is doing your thinking for you. Dumbass.
He is more likely to these murderers and dictators more then Michael Moore is, and has done so for years. That however, is an issue I have with something else you wrote and will address that at another time.
Note to Chris: after you take a history class, you might want to brush up on your English.
I think you need to take a moment at look at the facts that are out there before you claim someone is trying to make money off of people dying because they made a movie speaking out AGAINST gun violence.
And as you can see here, I think you need to get your head out of Michael Moore's ass before you waste my time sending me cut-and-paste statistics on a subject you know absolutely nothing about.
Wanna tangle with me again, asshole? The comments section is available to you below. Hit me with your best shot. Or, you can be a fucking man about it, admit you don't know what you're talking about, and start thinking for yourself. The ball is in your court, Chris. Don't be a simp.
