Flabulous Filmmaker: Hey, You Know Who’s Trying to Censor Movies? . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
. . . Michael Moore, that’s who.
The big story in the mainstream media about Michael Moore, today, is that he’s allegedly behind Congressman John Conyers’ opposition to Dr. Sanjay Gupta becoming Barack Obama’s Surgeon General.
But this should be the big story about Michael Moore:

National Theater Chain is pressured to pull movie critical of Michael Moore

Traverse City, Michigan, January 9, 2008. Bowing to pressure from a group organized by Jeff Gibbs, a close friend of Michael Moore and his co-producer on the movie Fahrenheit 911, Carmike Cinemas of
Traverse City has pulled the plug on a new movie critical of the activist filmmaker. “Shooting Michael Moore,” was scheduled to start a one-week run today in Moore’s home town of Traverse City, Michigan. According to Gibbs, the title was a “thinly veiled call to violence” against Michael Moore.
Kevin Leffler, the producer and director of “Shooting Michael Moore” explained that the movie title is only referring to shooting the Oscar-winning filmmaker with a camera, not a gun, and absolutely does
not encourage violence against Michael Moore. Leffler went on to state, “The fact that Michael Moore has the power to pressure a national theater chain to pull a movie critical of him is sad. All sides of an issue should be aired.” To ensure that the public has a chance to see his movie, Leffler even changed the film’s name to “Exposing Michael Moore.” In spite of this, Carmike Cinemas still refuses to air the movie that they were once enthusiastic about showing, simply because Moore has let it be known that he does not want the movie in theaters. The movie has already been aired in both Miami and Detroit.
A protest and press conference is planned for Friday, January 9th, at 4:00 pm. at the Carmike Horizon Cinema 10, located at 3587 Market Place Circle in Traverse City.

“Exposing Michael Moore”? That’s a disturbing visual. Man the hell up, and go back to the original title

I think Sanjay Gupta might have said somewhere that obesity is not a desirable state of health. That would be enough to make Moore, and, quite probably, Conyers, incensed.
Many obese people, like many gay people, are psychologically disturbed. Their undesirable medical conditions are both a manifestation of, and a reinforcement of their malady. Sufferers of both diseases are usually quite sensitive about their problems, and have very brittle egos — witness the gays’ rampages a month or so ago. Moore’s attempts to stifle free expression are another manifestation of this. And, of course, are one more example of how liberalism, with its stifling of free speech and free expression, logically leads to totalitarianism.
The liberals pick such wonderful groups to support: now Hamas, yesterday Chavez, Castro, various Muslim tyrants, etc.

I was under the impression that John Conyers was suffering from dementia. Who is pulling his strings? He can’t care what Moore thinks, can he?

Now I know why there are people who reject the existence of God.
God never make mistakes?
“God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good.” Gen 1:31
Err…, scrap that.
“And God created Michael Moore, and behold, it was very bad.” Gen 1:32
“And God said, go away from me you fat bastard, from your pie hole you shall spew venom and on your face people shall spit.” Gen 1:33
“Cursed be the land that welcomes you.” Gen 1:34
“Eternal damnation shall await you.” Gen 1:35
“Happy those who spit on Michael Moore for they shall see God.” Mat 5:11

Michael Moore is FAT TRASH. This guy is no intellectual. He is the high school geek who always wants everyone to like him. I am no fan of liberal Gupta, however, he is a professional. It is no surprise Moore wants to nix him as Surgeon General. Moore is in love with his ego he has built over the years and is afraid someone will expose him and now he is paranoid. First it was Gupta, now this documentary.
Moore has the profile of a typical con-man. He strokes his audience by telling them things they want to hear. Then he goes off on the wild tangent once his audience gives them their trust. When questioned about his authenticity or his documentaries he starts spouting off “Didn’t I tell you the right wing would attack me?”. Never answering his critics, all the time while laughing it off like he is morally and intellectually superior. He doesn’t need to acknowledge “those people” because they are Neanderthals.
Hopefully the light will be shown on this Sicko. I hope to see him publicly meltdown in public when he sees other begin to question him. He is mentally unstable and capable of unpredictable behavior.
