WORSHIP - Hollywood Style
Well, they did
a bout of sanctimonious hypocrisy and sycophantic idol worship,
Hollywood has awarded Michael Moore an Oscar for “Bowling
for Columbine.”. They cheered as the alleged
“documentarian” accepted his award. They honored
the indecent accusations he hurled throughout the entire film.
They praised his lies and his pious indictment of our society
– or more accurately anyone he perceives as “right
legitimizing the piece of bigoted trash he passes off
as a “documentary” and honoring it as a

suppose we ought to give some of them at least a little credit
for shunning Moore’s boorish attempt at condemnation
during his acceptance speech and his whining endeavor to gripe
about the “stolen” election of 2000 while thousands
of America’s defenders are overseas fighting and dying.
We ought to give Steve Martin accolades for handling that
sweaty, loutish freak’s childish outburst with aplomb.
you know what? Any credit Hollywood receives for recognizing
and rejecting Moore’s petulant tantrum on the podium
will always be overshadowed by its legitimization of the lies,
hatred and propaganda contained in his alleged “documentary.”
Their feeble bleatings about Moore’s poor timing during
his acceptance speech are belied by their blind hatred for
the “evil” gun, which has desensitized them to
the moral imperatives of right and wrong.
Here are the
of documentary is, among other things, FACTUAL
feeble attempt at castigation of our culture is neither.
Moore set out
to perpetuate a lie, and he structured his documentary accordingly
– with lies.
because lies sell. Nobody wants to hear that the alleged NRA
“rally” held just a few days after the Columbine
massacre was, in fact, an annual corporate meeting, which
was laced with mourning, grief and tears. No one wants to
hear that all festivities, banquets and other events for entertainment
purposes were cancelled in deference to the tragedy. No, it’s
much easier to disseminate emotionally-laced propaganda and
misinformation to rile people against those “evil”
gun owners who held a previously scheduled corporate meeting,
despite this horrible tragedy for which they were somehow
wants to hear that certain parts of the movie were staged
by Moore to show hunters as complete incompetent idiots. They’d
rather believe that all hunters are stupid enough to strap
their rifles onto their dogs and get shot in the process.
wants to hear that the little boy who shot his classmate in
Flint, Michigan lived amid filth, drugs and stolen firearms.
No one wants to know that the murderer of Kayla Rolland spent
his time among criminals and drug addicts. And no one wants
to know that Mommy Dearest was an alleged druggie, who purportedly
abused at least one of her kids. No – instead, Moore
focused on how poor mommy was actually forced to work, instead
of sitting on welfare and watching Oprah in her drug den!
Oh the horror! It wasn’t the child’s environment
– his exposure to crime, drugs and filth that played
a major role in the murder of his 6 year old classmate. No!
It was the evil government that forced his irresponsible twit
of a mother to actually work for a living! Yes, it’s
all those evil “conservative, right-wing” ideals
of working instead of leeching off society that killed Kayla!
Lies sell, and
Michael Moore is apparently one hero of a salesman.
if you think I plan on taking aim at Moore today, you’re
mistaken. That cretin doesn’t deserve a column devoted
to the bigoted piece of trash he vomited forth and packaged
as a “documentary.” He doesn’t merit my
attention or my writing efforts. He merits nothing more than
contempt, which I freely and amply bestow on him.
my mission today is to take aim at Hollywood itself –
and especially the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences
– for blindly falling for Moore’s unilateral condemnation
of our society as somehow being responsible for a handful
awarding Moore’s scapegoating of every American who
chooses to purchase a legitimate and effective tool of self-defense,
skill and competition as a culture responsible for every evil
deed by every criminal, Hollywood should hang its head in
legitimizing the piece of bigoted trash he passes off as a
“documentary” and honoring it as a genuine work,
the Academy cheapened the work of real documentary filmmakers
– those who choose to portray the truth and create a
work of art that reflects objective reality.
honoring Moore’s seething hate for America, for her
heritage and for her freedoms, Hollywood and its “elite”
spat in the face of every law-abiding American gun-owner,
simply because they choose to take responsibility for their
own well-being, their freedom and their safety, instead of
relying on armed guards to protect them.
by paying tribute to Moore’s misguided and incompetent
portrayal of gun owners and hunters as disturbed morons responsible
for any and every tragedy involving a firearm in this country,
Hollywood has tainted the tradition of the Academy Award.
sleaze because it jived with their political agendas.
filth – the bigoted condemnation of innocent people
as the “culture” responsible for violence.
revered corruption, because it’s so much easier for
them to demonize and vilify peaceable gun-owners than to look
within their own ranks at the violence and filth they peddle
day in and day out.
why they so thoroughly enjoyed Moore’s fraudulent distortion.
Because God forbid they actually take a modicum of responsibility
for promoting slime and sleaze! It’s so much easier
to blame those who don’t have a direct line to the media.
It’s so much quicker and cleaner to attack victims who
don’t have the Hollywood resources to respond.
don’t get me wrong – I fully support the entertainment
industry’s right to peddle violent, morally repugnant
garbage. If there’s a demand for filth, they’ve
exploited it, fully and legitimately. I also fully support
my right to turn them off and not have them in my home. It
is my right as a citizen to turn away from their corruption
and their peddling of
blood and sex for money. That’s what freedom is all
about - choices.
what I will condemn these spoiled rich uninformed brats for
is the hypocrisy of blaming peaceable, innocent citizens for
the “culture” of violence, while pointedly ignoring
their own role in glorifying said carnage.
up, Hollywood! You are a bunch of whiny, petulant hypocrites,
whose little world is an unrealistic, tucked away Stepford
nightmare, where a pair of shoes could cost more than some
people’s annual salary. You – with your gated
communities and your armed guards – have no clue about
the reality of having to either take personal responsibility
for protecting yourself and your loved ones or having to rely
on the government to do so. You malign guns and gun owners,
because it’s convenient – because it gives you
yet another excuse to wrap yourselves in the shroud of piousness,
while making billions of dollars off the same tragedies you
a very few exceptions, you disgust me. Your holier-than-thou
ignorance is matched only by your transparent, sanctimonious
and hypocritical unwillingness to condemn lies and misinformation.
You have cheapened your art and you have cheapened the Academy
Awards with your obsequious osculation of Michael Moore’s
rather large derriere.
feel sorry for any other documentarian whom you choose to
honor with an Oscar in the future, for he will invariably
be lumped into the same category as the peddler of lies, bigotry
and hatred you chose as your winner this year.
would advise you, the members of the entertainment industry
to remove your collective lips from Mr. Moore’s anus.
I would advise you to hold yourselves up to the same high
standards as the people who awarded Michael Bellesiles’
fraud Arming America the prestigious Bancroft Award and later
rescinded it on the grounds that it was full of lies. But
you have never been known for your integrity, Hollywood, so
I won’t hold my breath.
