Michael Moore – Hypocrite of the Century

Michael Moore – Hypocrite of the Century

Now comes word that Michael Moore, one of the people most responsible for reelecting George W. Bush as President through his shrill and ridiculously bombastic movie “Fahrenheit 911,” does not practice what he preaches. This, according to a great posting by O.C. Register editorialist Alan Bock today citing Peter Schweizer’s latest book "Do As I Say (Not As I Do): Profiles in Liberal Hypocrisy."

Moore has repeatedly said that he doesn’t own stock as a matter of personal morality. In fact Schweizer uncovers that Moore and his wife have created a foundation to do the owning for them. This foundation has owned stock in multiple pharmaceuticals, oil companies (such as Halliburton) and even McDonalds.

Moore has also berated Hollywood for not hiring minorities in key positions. The record for “Fahrenheit 911” is instructive here: all 19 key positions in the movie were filled by whites. His other creative efforts didn’t fare much better.

This stuff is just too good to be made up.

We can’t get a better spokesman for the Left in America – Michael Moore is irreplaceable!
