Michael Moore v. G-d: Just Got Back From This

By Debbie Schlussel

Just got back from a critics’ screening of Michael Moore’s new movie, “Capitalism:  A Love Story.”  Can’t post my review until it debuts in early October (stay tuned for that).  Moore is coming to town to do interviews, and I’m really bummed I can’t make those because I have a lot of pointed questions for him–I’ve had my run-ins with him before (here and here), and he does, at least, answer questions (in my experience).  But it’s scheduled on the Jewish High Holidays, and when it comes to a contest between G-d and Michael Moore, it’s really a no-brainer.  No contest.  Not even close.  I’ll be in synagogue praying for forgiveness and a good year. And the flabulous filmmaker will be Schlussel-free.


Don’t forget, by the way, that Moore’s agent, Ari Emanuel, is Rahm Emanuel’s bro. Like I said, my review goes up when the movie debuts.  But in the meantime, here’s the trailer:

Scrap your review, Debbie. There’s no need to give Moore publicity he doesn’t deserve!

Why doesn’t he just go to his beloved Utopia of Cuba and stay there? I’m sure the Cuban government would allow this POS to make his stupid movies about Cuba once he is there and finds out how really bad it is. May he get a serious illness and have to get treated in the Cuban health care system.

Who funded this film?

Michael Moore and the Emanuel brothers worship the same Gd: the almighty dollar. This is not a soul on this living earth they won’t sell out in order to make more money.

It’s not about “social justice”. If it were, they wouldn’t be hoarding so much money for themselves.

Got a question that has nothing to do with the post.

Why do you say G*d and not just God? Is that supposed to be a ramped up politically correct method of saying just GOD?

    Don’t take the name of G-d in vain. Debbie is an Orthodox Jew. Unless one is praying to him, avoid the use of the name whenever possible, including in writing.

I’m with Norman on this one….please don’t give that out-of-shape whackjob any publicity.

Who cares about this has-been hollywood celebrity? Who the hell takes whatever he says seroiusly after his other film bout 9/11??

For the Jewish people, writing the name of G-d is not done casually. They write it this way, so that the name of G-d is not disrespected or destroyed. It’s not a PC thing at all.
I am a Christian, but I try to remember to spell G-d this way out of respect for our esteemed hostess. Plus, it’s not a bad idea either.

(Think I got the reasoning right. 🙂 )

But writing G-D is silly. It takes more work than just simply doing the O.

To me, God is disrespected more using a substitute for an O. Jeez, just say GOD. There is absolutely no disrespect in that.

Steve Harkonnen on September 18, 2009 at 11:31 am

Does it matter if they spell it the way they do or not? Just leave it alone and stop making big deal out of it.

You’re missing the Value Voters Summit too. What do you think of your conservative brethren’s complete lack of consideration for the Jewish community in their planning of this event?

I am certain no one will ever be offended by seeing GOD instead of G*D. All that does is attract attention to someone wanting to be PC.

Say it like it is.


Steve Harkonnen on September 21, 2009 at 3:34 pm

    It’s not a question of “offense,” it’s a question of religious usage. You are living up to your last name, baron.

    Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in Vain, Harkonnen. Perhaps if thou hadst the benefit of a decent code of behavior, like, say, House Atreides…..

Michael Moore’s message in his movie Capitalism: A Love Story is that capitalism is evil. However, he makes movies to make money so does that make him evil? Anyways, what may ironically be evil is the price that the domain owner of who is not Michael Moore is asking for it on ebay. Now that’s truly evil. LOL
