How much is your blog worth?

Tuesday, July 06, 2004

Time permitting (which hasn't been much as my days are now filled with "preparing for surgery"), I've been scouring the Internet for concrete rebuttals of Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11". So far, the search has been futile. The most common refutation that I've seen runs along the lines of "Michael Moore is a liar". Or "Michael Moore edits", or my personal favorite, "Michael Moore is fat" (because that explains it all, right?).

That really seems to be the only thing anyone has to say against what was brought up in "Fahrenheit 9/11". Well, if it's such a bunch of bullshit lies, where's your proof to back that up? Michael Moore's level of intelligence or fat content has nothing to do with the material he presented in his movie. If you think it's so "wrong" and so "libelous", then tell me why. Show me something other than "I don't like what he said so he sucks".

The real reason I'm writing though is an alarming trend I saw throughout the "Michael Moore is poo-poo" rants; the accusation that those who liked the movie or agree with some of Moore's points, or just those that disagree with our President and his administration, are non-patriotic traitors who don't support our troops. This could possibly be the most ignorant thing I've ever read.

Exactly where is the logic in that? Because I disagree with decisions made by my government I automatically don't support anything to do with my country whatsoever? If you believe this, or you say this, then you're just being ignorant, I'm sorry.

The entire point of being an American and having freedoms like we do is so that we can disagree with our government! If I don't like what Bush is doing, I have the freedom to say that and Michael Moore has the ability to make a movie about it.

But what in the name of shit does that have to do with supporting our troops? Look, I may not support the reason they're over there, but they were sent and they are there fighting and dying every day and my heart, and my support, goes out to them. Just because I don't support the reason we're at war doesn't mean I don't support the men and women that are over there fighting! If it weren't for our troops, all the people that have lost their lives in battles and wars past, we wouldn't have the freedoms we have now! I'm well aware of that and just because I don't like our monkey-faced president sure in hell doesn't mean that I don't or can't still support our armed forces!! What does one have to do with the other? Absolutely nothing! Bush has done some pretty fucked up things wherein our environment is concerned; you don't see me yelling out that those who like Bush must therefore hate the planet! I wouldn't, because that's stupid.

It really pisses me off seeing these ignorant people throwing around such vitriol for no damn good reason. So what if I don't like President Bush?! What the fuck do you care? So everyone that doesn't like the president, or disagrees with YOUR viewpoints, is a traitor to the United States? I mean come the fuck on.

The whole thing is just utterly stupid. We can argue 'til we're blue in the face that we have a good/bad president and a good/bad administration and a just/unjust reason for going to war. Opinions are like assholes but it doesn't mean you have to act like one if someone doesn't share your viewpoint. Don't accuse people of being non-patriotic for having an opinion. Don't accuse people of hating our troops simply because we liked "Fahrenheit 9/11".
