|Michael Moore: A Criminal Profile|
|The Fifth Column Paul A. Ibbetson
June 9, 2007
There is little doubt that Michael Moore is one of the most public anti-American propagandists of modern times. Without fail, his lengthy lists of so called documentary works have all encompassed his varying visions of the shortcomings of the United States. What many Americans take issue with Moore, is the deceptive means by which he collects his information and the even more deceptive way he portrays this information to the public.
When lamenting about Moore’s last work Fahrenheit 9/11, Christopher Hitchens would say, “To describe this film as dishonest and demagogic would be to promote those terms to the level of respectability. To describe this film as a piece of crap would be to run the risk of a discourse that would never again rise above the excremental…Fahrenheit 9/11 is a sinister exercise in moral frivolity, crudely disguised as an exercise in seriousness. It is also a spectacle of abject political cowardice masking itself as a demonstration of “dissenting” bravery.” (Hitchens, 2004, ¶3).
The Hitchens observation is important to the profiling of Moore for two reasons. First, it encapsulates a general feeling of many Americans, and more importantly, it shows that even the most godless among us realize that there is something fundamentally wrong with Michael Moore. Dave Kopel, of the Independence Institute, who appears in the Michael Moore rebuttal film Fahrenhype 9/11, has chronicled fifty- nine falsehoods within Moore’s documentary.
Hitchens and countless others have been able to touch upon the modus operandi of Moore which includes an overabundance of lies and trickery. Examples of trickery include ambushing politicians trying to make their way into government buildings, and the lowly deception in Bowling for Columbine of pretending to be a second amendment advocate to get into Charlton Hesston’s home to verbally attack the aged actor for his kindness. Moore has used his abilities in “cut and paste” respondent editing to make a mockery of the truth and cater to the far left anti-American crowd. It should also be mentioned that he has made a fortune in the process.
However, realizing that Michael Moore is an America hater who lies, is only observing the symptoms of what truly makes the man what he is. To have an adequate profile of Moore, a person must understand why he does what he does.
First, it must be understood that Moore is not a dupe or lackey. To compare Moore with dim-witted pawns of the Democratic Party, such as Cindy Sheehan, is to make a serious under-estimation of Moore’s intelligence. For everything Moore is, he is not stupid. While this may sound like a compliment, it’s far from it. Moore’s full mental capabilities exempt himself from the forgiveness that some will extend to the Sheehan types of the world.
While it is no doubt true that Moore benefits from the socialist movement within the Democratic Party, he is also not a gun for hire. Moore and the Democratic left simply have similar aims at the moment and this is a point of confusion for many people. When we see Michael Moore sitting in the place of distinction with Jimmy Carter at the 2004 Democratic convention, we are not seeing Michael Moore the faithful soldier of the Democratic Party, what we are really seeing is Michael Moore representing Michael Moore Inc. It is here that we can observe the beginnings of the true sociopathic nature of Moore.
What’s confusing to most people is that when we think of the sociopath, visions of stone cold killers like Ted Bundy come to mind, not plump loud mouths from Michigan. However, it is the nature of the sociopath that makes Moore a perfect Goebbels style propagandist.
The sociopath is void of a standard conscience and is not limited in personal action due to feelings of guilt. If this individual can attain what he/she wants, the means to that end have no relevance. Being seen as a hypocrite or dishonest carries no weight past what formal sanctions can bring. When Michael Moore attacks Dick Cheney for his affiliation to Haliburtan, while owning stock himself, there are no pangs of guilt or remorse, only frustration at being exposed. Moore, as a sociopath, is free to attack the war effort as well as the survival of the country for his own personal gain with impunity.
Sociopaths are highly functional, while they do not feel bound to general moral codes, they do realize that to stay free in society, to continue the quest for their personal gratification, they must appear to conform to societal norms. Sociopaths are often identified by the public by their personal indulgences that are so deviant from societal norms they require incarceration or elimination.
For instance, Ted Bundy was highly functional and blended well in the society until his desire to destroy the flesh eventually identified himself as a sociopath. In contrast to Ted Bundy, Moore’s personal indulgence is simply to line his pockets by undermining the country. While the damage Moore brings to the U.S. in lowering national morale, reinforcing the warped conceptions of America by socialist countries around the world, and encouraging America’s enemies, may in the long run cause a loss of life greater than Bundy’s, its immediate effects are less obvious.
The point that people should be brought to understand is that if the fates had placed Moore in a communist country, he would most likely be undermining that system for his personal gain by any means he could muster. Ironic isn’t it?
There is no doubt that the public will receive another large dose of the same old same old with Moore’s new labor of love, Sicko. However, as Moore promotes Cuba’s communistic medical program, people should be armed with the knowledge that what they are seeing is not the work of a naïve communist convert but the cold calculations of a sociopathic mind.

More crazy violence in one of Al Qaeda’s last corners
14 Killed at Iraqi Police Chief’s House

BAGHDAD (AP) – In a dawn strike Friday, unidentified gunmen attacked the house of the police chief in Baqouba, northeast of Baghdad, killing his wife, two brothers and 11 guards, Diyala provincial police reported.
The attackers also abducted two sons and two daughters of police chief Col. Ali Ahmed, police said. Ahmed wasn’t home at the time, they said. The children’s ages and other details of the attack were not immediately available.
Diyala province, and especially the city of Baqouba, 35 miles northeast of Baghdad, has been torn by violence in recent weeks as al Qaida in Iraq and affiliated groups have battled Iraqi security forces, the U.S. military and some local insurgent groups that have turned against al Qaida.
Smells like Czechoslovakia spirit. Will Syria really stop funding terrorism against Israel?
Report: Olmert Signals on Golan Heights
Jun 8 01:40 AM US/Eastern
JERUSALEM (AP) – A recent flurry of secret messages from Israel to Syria signaled Israel’s willingness to give up the disputed Golan Heights in return for a peace agreement, an Israeli newspaper reported Friday.
Confirming that Saudi Arabia is a dysfunctional family business pretending to be a country, the BBC has found that the oil-rich tyranny’s envoy to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, received secret payments for over a decade in connection with a 40 billion pound arms deal with Britain’s biggest arms dealer, BAE Systems.
The payments were made with the full knowledge of Britain’s Ministry of Defence, according to the BBC; and Prince Bandar has “categorically” denied receiving any improper payments.
Really. Latin American sources say the Venezuelan dictator is looking forward to hosting John Edwards, the multimillionaire American trial lawyer-turned-populist presidential candidate.
Edwards is campaigning with pro-Chavez American actor Danny Glover, who has reportedly convinced the candidate to visit Caracas and express support for Chavez.
Sources say the leftwing despot is also arranging for Edwards to meet with Iranian government officials (or agents) during his stay in the Venezuelan capital.
Venezuela is Iran’s staunch ally. The oil-rich South American nation is also allied with two Communist tyrannies–Castroite Cuba and Kimist North Korea.
China Confidential has learned that the Crackpot of Caracas has told close friends and associates that America’s days as the world’s leading military power–or hegemon, in Chinese military and political parlance–are clearly numbered.
Chavez reportedly sees air power–actually, the threat of annihilation by nuclear-tipped missiles–as the key to cutting Washington down to size and driving it from its overseas bases and commitments.
In less than a decade, according to Chavez, the United States will face a “perfect storm” of potential nuclear missile attacks from North Korea, Iran, and China, which is known to be augmenting its estimated strategic nuclear arsenal of about 20 intercontinental ballistic missiles with nuclear submarines capable of hitting the US. China is also developing a space-war program aimed (a) at blinding US satellites, and (b) at attacking the US from orbiting weapons systems.
Sources say that Chavez, inspired by the Cuban missile crisis, hopes that China or its vassal, North Korea, will eventually supply Venezuela with missiles capable of destroying Washington.
|Islamists Threats in the U.S.|
|Tuesday, 29 May 2007|
|Throwing acid in the face of women who fail to don the hijab, flogging people for sporting non-Islamic haircuts, and stoning to death violators of sexual norms are only a few examples of a raft of daily barbaric acts of Islamists in places like Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, and many Islamic lands. Other forms of Islamic brutalities such as Honor Killing have already found their way to Germany and other European countries with the ever-burgeoning Muslim populations.
Wherever Islam goes, so goes its ethos.
Reading about these religiously-mandated horrific acts and even seeing them on television or the Internet may momentarily repulse, but does not terribly concern many Americans. After all, those things are happening on the other side of the world, and those people deserve each other; we are safe in fortress America, so goes the thinking.
But “fortress America” is a delusion that even the events of 9/11 seem to have failed to dispel. Many prefer to believe that the assault of 9/11 was an aberration, since nothing like it has happened again, and it is unlikely that anything of the sort will ever happen again, so goes the wishful thinking.
The reality portrays a vastly different picture. America is far from a fortress given its vast wide-open borders. It is a nation of laws where all forms of freedom are enshrined in its constitution; is where Americans live by humane ethos diametrically different from those of Islamist savagery. Sadly, these differences confer great advantage to the Islamists and place America in imminent danger.The breach of “Fortress America” from the air on 9/11 is only the first installment of much more forthcoming heinous assaults, unless we abandon our complacency; stop relying on the invincibility of the law-enforcement people; and willingly make the sacrifices that would protect our way of life.
Knowing Islam intimately and having experienced its systemic savagery, has compelled me to warn repeatedly of the deadly imminent threat it poses to all non-Muslims (Why Confront Islamism) attempting to present a comprehensive treatment of the evil precepts and practices of Islamism, I am listing a few facts that should be enough to alarm anyone who cherishes liberty and freedom; awaken anyone who is comforted by the belief that all the Islamic mayhem is limited to an illiterate gang of primitive Middle Easterners and has no implications for America. Sorry, bad news is here already.
Just a sobering note: Mild Islamism is already here in our country. The Muslim cab driver of the Minneapolis Airport refusal to ferry passengers with alcohol or even those with seeing-eye-dogs; Muslim inmates demand to be served only hala Food ; Muslim students badger universities for special facilities for their meetings; and, the first ever Muslim Congressman assumption of office by swearing on the Quran and not the Bible.
Mild Islam is not all that obtrusive, since it is similar to the early stages of pregnancy. Yet, pregnancy it is. And before long the full-term beast will make its appearance. If we don’t want to deal with the beast, we need to prevent the pregnancy in the first place.
