Debunking Farenheit 9/11 - 07/19/04 04:34 AM

It's quite long, so I'll just post a couple good parts and a link.

Here\'s the link
Now quotes:

Quote:
The movie opens with the 2000 election. I was baffled to hear Moore claim that “numerous investigations said that Gore won Florida.” Which numerous investigations were these? The New York Times1, the Washington Post,2 and USA Today,3 reported the same consensus after both recounts: George W. Bush won ...
Quote:
... As the movie notes, the Bush family was connected to the Bin Ladens, (who claim to have disowned Osama), through the Carlyle Group. But the Carlyle group is a highly connected D.C. firm that specializes in aerospace and defense investments, so good luck finding any government official who isn’t tied to the Bin Ladens. Even George Soros, who is probably the most anti-Bush figure in America right now, has 100,000,000 dollars invested in the Carlyle Group; ...
Quote:
The Bush-Bin Laden “connection” all comes into play as we “learn” that the White House allowed the Bin Laden family to fly out of America after the attacks ... Richard Clark, the ex terrorism czar who recently wrote a book denouncing the Bush administration, admitted that it was his own sole decision to allow the Bin Ladens to fly out of the country.
This is obviously just small parts of the essay that I thought were interesting. I would just copy the whole thing, but it wouldn't fit. I recommend that you all read it tho, it seems that some ideas about Bush are inaccurate. Also, before commenting: RTFA.

No one gives a fuck, we all hate Bush, if some fat chuckle-fuck wants to make a propaganda movie to make the American people hate Bush then good for him.

I don't like Bush either, I just thing it's important that people know the truth.

Ha. Bush may be bad, but think: What would Gore have done about 9/11 had he been in office? Scary thought but I certainly don't want Kerry in office. Rumor is that if he does take office that he would make our troops call back before return-fire in the war. This can only equal death. My brother is a marine in Iraq right now because of Bush. Nothing would please me more than calling all our troops back. I don't see why we don't fix our own nation before trying to save the world?
Moore is a complete moron that twisted the facts in his favor. And that is NOT a documentary. My god, even the local news went in a review the movie and found multiple errors! There's no doubt that he will be gunned down in a year, because he has pissed off far too many republicans.
Where I work, I do non-profit fundraising for the democrats so I get a face full of politics everyday.
This is crazy.

Props!!!

...But any thing made to look like a documentery or news that seems to have a heavy opinon should be reguarded as propaganda.

The fact you post the truth is worth something in my eyes, but I never trusted the movie anyway. It feels like someone is trying to manipulate my opinoin through the whole thing.
